Track Name: Glass Lungs
You lead me to believe in the person you once were, with hopeful words and endless dreams. I pray for you. I pray that you see what stands before you instead of being blinded by your heartache.

Love lost is never love found. Just another ghost story to add to this town.

Do you still wait 'til everything's quiet to try and catch a glimpse of sleep? Well, I still lie awake for hours wishing that you will lie with me. But, it seems like you always were. Threw affiances like they were meagre words. And if you devalue the only thing I can offer to you then what are my words worth?

I care more everyday that you're not here, I can't be sure that you're safe when you're not here I'm not scared. I'm just not clear on the difference between keeping your distance and moving on from loss dear. But that's not what I fear.

You've got glass lungs that remind me nothing's stronger than our body's agility. You've glass lungs, on top of everything. It wasn't just my heart that skipped a beat. You've got glass lungs that remind me impermanence is a fact of being. You've got glass lungs that remind me... that I still feel something.

(I will be there if your body won't. I will be your aching bones.)
Do you still wait 'til everything's quiet to try and catch a glimpse of sleep? I still lie awake, wishing you were lying here. I will be your aching bones.

I'll never kiss, I'll never tell, I'll never love. I'll never fall, I'll never beg, I'll never trust.
Track Name: I'm Human
Such emotion runs through my veins like colours run slowly from portraits. In time I guess I can say I've made mistakes. I'm Human.

But, that's fine I want to forget. But, that's fine I'm still learning to survive.
Track Name: Old Hands, Young Hearts
The garden path still looks as crooked as before, with the same old gate, these worn out doors. The floorboards still creak with the windows and there are so many memories held in one place, buried within these walls, but lost within your heart, as it brings a tear to these weary eyes.

And I wrote you a letter and left it behind closed doors. I left it where you wake between the sunset and sleep in hope that one day you will find it.

Oh how gentle breath, how peaceful you looked tossing and turning. I hope you dreamt of love.

With these hands. These hands have seen years of regret from past times and constant mistakes. And only she knows how damaged I became, but she accepts me for my mistakes. As long as she accepts me.
