Track Name: Awarewolf
It’s not my place to say and I might be mistaken,
so correct if I’m wrong about feeling complacent,
but whose side are you on?
This isn’t what we agreed on.

I can’t forget you.
This feeling is mutual and it’s true,
I hope you feel special.

I’m taking you with me.
You were right on the money about me
and suddenly it all ended so quickly.
But when the world caves in on you,
don’t ever say I never told you.

I can’t forget you.
This feeling is mutual and it’s true,
I hope you feel special.
Though I couldn’t see past the smoke,
it was clear with the words you spoke again.
Was it all in my head?

Don’t wanna be found,
at least until sundown.
Maybe then I’ll come around;
leave me alone for now.
I’m no good with words,
even worse with my hands.
Nothing i ever do goes according to plan.

I’m no good with words
Track Name: Lizards on Ice
There’s truth in the way you look at me
and I believe exactly what I see.
You never asked too much from me;
a man without anything.

‘Cos it’s never what it seems
when you’re living in a dream.
And I don’t mind you following
‘cos I know that you’ll never leave.

I never thanked you for that…
You’ve always had my back,
and after all these years
I kept you near.

We rode our bikes down the beach
looking for a place to eat,
so we settled for the sand beneath our feet.
It was paradise and it felt nice
until I opened my eyes.
Track Name: Wooden Birds
I keep talking to myself when I should be talking to you
like I’m supposed to,
but these words won’t do what they’re supposed to,
so I guess I’ll show you.

A feeling so strange,
I’m not ready to change for you or anyone.
And if you’re willing to listen,
I’ll tell you what you want to hear;
You were right, I was wrong.
You were right all along.

Talk to me, say what you mean.
I’ll tell you what you mean to me.
I’ll tell you things you won’t believe is true,
like how the sun shines in your eyes
and I fall for them every time - it’s true.
I’ve already found you, I tried to tell you

Blame it on terrible timing.
Focus on the silver lining.
In the end, the sun is shining a light in your eyes.
The same eyes that shine in moonlight,
so let’s just stare at the sky.

I still pass the pavement where we wrote our names in 2009,
it’s engraved in my mind.
That night in October,
the last time I saw you sober.
It was a sight to be seen.

And if you’re willing to listen,
I’ll tell you what you want to hear;
You were right, I was wrong.

Talk to me, say what you mean.
I’ll tell you what you mean to me.
I’ll tell you things you won’t believe is true,
like how the sun shines in your eyes
and I fall for them every time - it’s true.
I’ve already found you, I tried to tell you

Don’t get me wrong,
If you get me at all, it’d be too soon,
cos I can’t look you in the eyes
and tell you what I feel inside - it’s true.
I’ve already found you, I tried to tell you.
