Track Name: Easier
Perhaps it’s easier to find a place to hide than to fight, if it came to that
Perhaps it’s easier to run when it’s raining out, the sun may not ever show

CHORUS
And I would try again with you, if you wanted to
I would try again
And I would try again with you, if you wanted to
I would try again

If we came a bit late that day, perhaps we should not have come at all
If we misunderstood I would speak again but you already built a wall

CHORUS

Take this heart and try to treat it better than
And I will take your pain back on
Take these hands and try to hold ‘em tighter than
And I will hold your hand in mine

Perhaps it’s easier, perhaps it’s easier, perhaps it’s easier
Track Name: Oh My
If my words could taste
The roughness in my mouth
They’d break you down
But I can’t wash them out

I paused too long to drink
The poison of your doubt
It’s time to travel on
But I can’t find my feet

CHORUS
And I can’t help but wonder where you are today
And I can’t breathe but I can’t walk away like this
Oh my, oh my, oh my
Oh my, oh my, oh my
Oh my

All the lies you told
So close to holding truth
I might believe you now
I might believe in you

If you would stand the flames
And look me in the eye
Demand your freedom from
The demons trapped inside

CHORUS

At last my boots have brought
Me down into this place
A place to say goodbye
Too late for saving grace

I cannot wonder if
You hear my footsteps fall
I will not hear your cries
Should wolves begin their calls

And Oh my, oh my, oh my
Oh my, oh my, oh my
Oh my, oh my, oh my
Oh my, oh my, oh my
Oh my
Track Name: Paper Houses
True orange, she said, doesn’t rhyme with anything
Time spent under it makes people break
Takes away their ability to feel empathy
Real emotion dissipates

And I ran into you the other day
Paying more than you could
Playing with feelings the way we used to play with fire
The desire to lose control but we’re to tired for the consequences
So we keep it cool, and pretend to ourselves,
That we’re still following the rules

CHORUS: White skies, paper houses in the rain
White skies, paper houses in the rain

She has such a pretty smile
Teeth so white it’s like she can’t be lying when she says she wants this
And I’m trying to find the difference between you and how it used to be
But I’m finding the attempt futile

Because maybe loving is like learning to throw and it takes practice
Before you know when to go for it and when to hold back
So tack on another experience to my list of hard learned lessons, impulsive confessions, I spoke too soon
With you, the pretty smile, let’s go slow

CHORUS

The leaves choose to fall in this season and I wonder if it hurts
But they melt into the ground, colors fade soundlessly, and
I think I could plant a garden in this new dirt.
