Track Name: Solstice
We went driving
Beneath the evergreens and starry skies
The air, it made me shiver
Or maybe it was something that I saw in your eyes

Even thoughts are quiet
Silence reigning in this soft white world
Our breath makes clouds between us
And for a moment your face blurs

This could be the longest night of the year,
Could be the longest night

And I thought myself clever
For knowing how to play your favorite songs
But maybe I know better
Than to get myself wrapped up in all this again

Searching for the right words
Hoping that the darkness hides my face
Is it the burning whiskey
Or my favorite chords that make me brave?

This could be the longest night of the year
Could be the longest night

Trying not to move a muscle,
Make a sound, make a sound
I'm afraid that what you say
Could break me down, break me down

Every mountain has a climb,
Has a climb, has a climb
I reached over and I put your hand in mine, hand in mine

This could be the longest night of the year
Could be the longest night, longest night of the year.
Track Name: Chesapeake
The lights from the boats on the bay looked like stars
That were resting on top of the water
So we gave them all names and we carved them in shapes
On the timbers were felled by our fathers

At the bottom of the stairs, cause we were safe there
From the house's prying eyes

On the Chesapeake drive, you made it easy to
Forget how to say goodbye
You made me wait on you, and remember when you said,
"Is this good as it gets?"
Cause I swear to God, I don't know, but those Chesapeake lights
Sure feel like home

Make no mistake, it's a singular place
When it feels less of mind and feels more like a state
But to open a cabinet and pull out our habit
Takes away distance so we felt okay
You are my 'What if,' and I am the plaintiff
In a case we considered closed
So free until guilty is the feeling that kills me,
And it's only you who knows

On the Chesapeake drive, you made it easy to
Forget how to say goodbye
You made me wait on you, and remember when you said,
"Is this good as it gets?"
Cause I swear to God, I don't know, but those Chesapeake lights

On the Chesapeake drive, you made it easy to
Forget how to say goodbye
You made me wait on you, and remember when you said,
"Is this good as it gets?"
Track Name: Somewhere We Know
Baby, you brought me to my knees
Where I found we're not where we're supposed to be
Took a turn, now we're off of the map that I brought,
Who'd have thought of that?

Should we go back somewhere we know?

Honey, I knocked upon your door
I could have told you that I'd find you on the floor
Took a breath, built a wall, we got close to watch it fall
Then you looked at me, but could you see someone you know?

We had it well-defined, but I had other plans in mind
And the sky was grey, like my patience was long gone
So I said stay and we'll hold on, we'll hold on

I saw the world stand still in the blink of an eye
Then turn a little faster when the time was right
When I saw myself, there was nothing else but you, I know.
Track Name: Bones
I traveled up the Eastern coast, and found myself cold
Aching in my bones, in my bones.
Every attempt to get warm despite the winter storm
Was met with the failure that I've always known

Oh, I thought I'd like to find a little peace of mind,
But you said 'that's not for the best,' so you can take
The rest of what I left behind

One night, you and I lay still, silent in the grass
Except for your laugh
When I maybe touched your hand, I felt my face go red, bright red.
That night, I walked you to your door, then I left alone
I guess we won't grow old

I thought I'd like to find a little peace of mind
Turns out silence can't be found, that's why I let you down

I'm going back to the hill, the one where we lay still
And when the dew has soaked my clothes, I'll leave the hill alone
And dry them off at home
You leave me aching in my bones

I thought I'd like to find a little peace of mind
If something good was on its way, maybe would you stay awhile?
Track Name: Barely There
What happens when you wake up?
Do you forget your dreams of me?
I forget what I'm supposed to be.

What happens when you see the sun?
Are you afraid to meet the day?
I'm afraid that I'm a little late.

Keeping steady as she goes
Has worked so far, I suppose
After all, we're barely, but we're there;
We're barely, but we're there.

What happens when the day is done?
Is there a someone you think of?
I remember how it is we love.

What happens when you fall asleep?
Do you find refuge in your bed?
I just find a place to rest my head.
Do you still dream of me?
I forget what I'm supposed to be.

Keeping steady as she goes
Has worked so far, I suppose
After all, we're barely, but we're there;
We're barely, but we're there.
