Track Name: Captain
‘There is a right and a wrong way to be
You will find neither by following me
All I can promise, to show you the sea,’
These are the words my captain spoke to me

There is a right and a wrong way to sail
One leads to Heaven, the other to Hell
Or there is a third, and there this ship will go,
Where the sun meets the ocean when sun’s sinking low

Oh Captain, my Captain, I’ve led us astray
Oh Captain, my Captain, you showed me the way
Oh Captain, my Captain, ‘til my dying day
You’ll bring us home, for this I will pray

Hymns from a faraway harbor we sang
Sailed us to sleep, sheltered us in the rain
But our captain was silent with stone in his eyes
To too many sailors has he sung goodbyes

‘Home is the sailor, home from the sea,
Here laid to rest where he longed to be,’
So I’ll have carved on my funeral stone
Should ever my captain sail me back to home
Track Name: After You
You were always running
But look what we’re becoming
You’re the sailor and I’m the harbormaster waving after you
What else am I to do?

You made time for leaving
But what do you believe in?
I was hanging on your every word, you were unaware
I think I’d like it there

So run away from me

Waiting is for those who
Treat patience as a virtue
But I am wise enough to know that waiting doesn’t make you strong
It only lasts too long

So after you, please, after you
You’ve been looking at that door for years
After you I’ll wait no more
You run away, but I’m staying right here
No more shall I wander, shall I fear

So run away from me
Track Name: Let Us Be More
I know who I am, if not where I stand
I am less than I intend
I am wheels on the road, bringing you a heavy soul
Where you steer, there I will go

Let us be more than the autumn leaves
Let us be more than the dying green
If we’re to go, let us go in flames
Because we all fade, we all fade away

You are fearless, you are free
You are all I want to be
So I follow recklessly
Silent as the grave was the answer that you gave
Can a helpless heart behave?

Let us be more than the autumn leaves
Let us be more than the dying green
If we’re to go, let us go in flames
Because we all fade, we all fade away
Before we all fade, we all fade away
Track Name: Friday
I’ve been waiting for today and practicing to look you in the eye
But I’ve been making more mistakes, and all my second chances have run dry
So, Tennessee, I stop and wonder why

It’s so dark outside when Friday rolls around
And she drove from way up north
To take the words right out your mouth
So what do you do now?

Close the shutters, lock the doors
It’s raining and it’s time to hide away
I’ve felt just like this before, and your face tells me that you’ve felt the same
Your smile could be lovely, that’s a shame

So what do you do now?
Track Name: Highlands
I will follow you where you roam
Follow you to mountaintops of stone
Glide along the pavement ‘til we’re miles from our home
I’ll follow you where you roam

I have flown much higher than the clouds
I have flown much higher than the clouds
Virginia stretched below me, the taste of you in my mouth
I have flown much higher than the clouds

If this heart of mine could learn how to fly
I’d send it away with warnings not to stray too close to the sun
It’s you that I’ve been thinking of

Clouded blue, the bottom of the sky
Colors that I swear I recognize
I am made immobile by the light behind your eyes
Clouded blue, the bottom of the sky

Faded green, the grass beneath the stone
Faded green where I could call a home
Quiet was my heart, the quietest I’ve ever known
Faded green, the grass beneath the stone

If this heart of mine could learn how to fly
I’d send it away with warnings not to stray too close to the sun
It’s you that I’ve been thinking of

Would that I were soil beneath your hand
Would that I were born a better man
That I might hold a forest, be a green and fertile land
Would that I were more than I am

I have known a heart in utter peace
I have known an aching love’s release
Clouded blue has found a way to save and shatter me
I have known a heart in utter peace
Track Name: Golden
Quite unlike my habits, I’m not hard to break
A word is all it takes
I’ve always been this way
I can’t help but wonder what’s behind those eyes
Thoughts that you might hide
To protect my pride

So say goodnight until we rise
And we can try again
I am broken, you are golden
We are holding on to something small, if at all

I’m sorry when it seems that I’m not listening
When eyes are wandering
Swear I heard everything
Best described as ‘bitter’ is the tone I use
When I laugh at you
Are you hurting, too?

So say goodnight until we rise
And we can try again
I am broken, you are golden
We are holding on to something small, if at all

I count myself as so much less than you deserve
But for what it’s worth
You know I loved you first

I am broken, but I am hoping
That we are something, that we are golden
