Track Name: Shake You Out
I close my eyes
I see inside my mind
Watch you crawl inside
Watch you come alive
And I try to shake you out

I try to fight it
I rewrite these pages a thousand times
I try to fight it
All these critics in my head

I lie in silence
Beneath miles of endless sky
You’re waiting in the wings
You’re pulling all the strings
And I try to shake you out

I try to fight it
I rewrite these pages a thousand times
I try to fight it
All these critics in my head
Track Name: Jet Lag
I'm writing these words down
On little paper napkins
Scattered on the floor of this dirty hotel room
Hallways and runways
And luggage tags and fast food
Choking on the scent of musk and old perfume

I'm just a ghost on days like these
A silent drifter no one sees
Collecting memories but they're all a hazy dream
Lay down my head and go to sleep

I'm fighting with jet lag
It's got its lifeless hooks in me
Swimming through this fog for thirteen hours on a plane
Tossing and turning
In this tiny little tin can
Hearing the incessant hum it drives me insane

I'm just a ghost on days like these
A silent drifter no one sees
Collecting memories but they're all a hazy dream
Lay down my head and go to sleep

I'm tired and numb now
I can't feel anything at all
I carry this baggage
A ball and chain that weighs me down

I'm just a ghost on days like these
A silent drifter no one sees
Collecting memories but they're all a hazy dream
Lay down my head and go to sleep
Track Name: Rainbow Daffodils
I wish I could dry your eyes tonight
Keep your chin to the sky
These bags packed by the door
You say "Daddy please don’t go this time"
My heart drops to the floor

Wrap your arms and don’t let go
There’s one thing I want you to know

When I’m so far from home
I whisper to the wind listen as it blows
Don’t be afraid
Even when I’m halfway round the world
Your love shows me the way

I wear your love on my sleeve
Walking through rainbow daffodils
For all the world to see
And when you can’t help cry
Close your eyes and listen closely
To hear this lullaby

Your portrait tucked inside my suitcase
Brings life to brighten up the gray walls of this place

When I’m so far from home
I whisper to the wind listen as it blows
Don’t be afraid
Even when I’m halfway round the world
Your love shows me the way
To you
Track Name: Ghosts
I can hear the voices coming through
Playing all our favorite songs we knew
Static from this old busted radio
Feel the afterglow

This dusty room fills up with ghosts

So many friends I've lost in time
We faded out before the line
Some I loved and won't forget
That I regret

But the regret has faded too

Remember everything we had
And it haunts us from the past
We know we can't go back

New friends around me breaking bread
Eat drink and be merry is what they said
The flames are dancing round the stars
We've come so far

Trying to find my way back home

Remember everything we had
And it haunts us from the past
We know we can't go back
Track Name: Coming Home
I don't wanna be alone with my suitcase anymore
Sick and tired of picking up my drunk ass off the floor
These weeks go by so slowly
I can't breathe it drives me crazy

I just can't wait til I get home

Everything I see out here reminds me of your face
And how you'd love this scenery but it's just not the same
Oceans and miles between us
My mind is spinning and I'm losing focus

I just can't wait til I get home

All these nights in hotel rooms
Detached and singing out of tune
Just one more restless night
In the morning I'll be coming home to you

I'll be
Coming home to you
Track Name: Bottle and a Song
The creaks and groans of this old house
Echoes of the past
Shake me to my bones, keeping me awake
The soundtrack to the night

I walk these halls
Through the pale white walls

All I have is this bottle and a song
No one here to help me sing along
Turn down the lights
There's peace in lonely nights

Light the fire with newspapers of yesterday
Catch a glimpse of optimistic headlines
Going up in smoke

These old and empty rooms
Are catacombs and tombs

All I have is this bottle and a song
No one here to help me sing along
Turn down the lights
There's peace in lonely nights

Nights like these
Track Name: Broken
The ticking of the clock
A ringing in my ears
The buzzing of the walls
Is all that I can hear

The colors aren’t as bright
The flowers don’t smell sweet
I’m starting to think
There’s something wrong with me

Don’t let them see you broken
Don’t let them know

The sweat is dripping down
But I can’t feel my toes
My arms begin to shake
There’s a burning in my throat

My voice starts to break
My nose starts to bleed
I’m so damn tired
But I can’t get to sleep

Don’t let them see you broken
Don’t let them know
