Track Name: why did you have to leave us behind
you’re looking at these flowers
like you want them to
bury all the ashes
the feeling inside you

there’s food on the table
two lovers left exposed
i can hear the neighbors
spread the news

with the heart of a lion
i’m trying to forget
reliving every moment
all the things you said

and somehow they echo
in endless decay
i’m feeling overburdened
left with all this space

and i ask
why did you have to leave us behind?
i want to know
when did i fall out of your life?
Track Name: numbers
who will see you when the fog clears?
who will hold your hand?
who will reach out to dry them soft tears?
who will leave no doubt?

especially at night
when you’re feeling out of sight

all in all, we’re just numbers
a paraphrase for love unheard
we lean towards the light
and hope that we find all the answers
will they make it to you
in time

who will speak out
when your tongue aches?
who will hear your will?
you’ve always been waiting for time to move onward
now your heart sits still
Track Name: mm/dd/yyyy
do you want me?
or are we lost at sea?
did i fail you?
oh am I sweet relief?
i followed for so long i forgot myself
do you miss me?
or is there nothing left?

my heart it aches for soft release
hoping that
you’ll come to me
my way is set by walls of stone knowing that
i’ll be alone

do you need me?
or am i not a missing piece?
did i fall out?
oh do you feel incomplete?
do you want me?
or are we overdosed?

my heart it breaks like porcelain hoping that
it’s not too late
i’m longing for
what feels like home knowing that
i’ll be alone

can we rescue?
or are we ended?
