Track Name: Heaven
How do I get by hiding the tears that I cry
How could I live a lie while wishing my heart would just die
Now do you speak the truth, you're telling me that you're okay
Why am I so confused? Black and white bleed into gray

You say heaven could be right here
As long as I promise to always be near

Now I see what you mean but that just don't help it make sense
Because I gave everything, I just couldn't bear the expense
I watched it all fall apart and slip through my fingers so fast
And this pain in my heart told me that this thing couldn't last

You say heaven could be right here
As long as I refuse to give in to my fear

Tell me when you go how do you know you will find you way back
Could it be that you can't see the vision you lack
Baby when you see you're hurting me, do you even care?
Well I've been deceived, I don't believe that heaven could be anywhere.
Track Name: Sweet
You still hold my hand and the door for me
You still get so shy when I catch you staring at me
You still wash your glass when you finish your drink
Don't want to leave any dirty dishes in my sink
And I think you're sweet

And I still laugh at all your jokes even when they're bad
And I pretend your racial slurs don't make me mad
I find out all the scores for all your favorite teams
Hoping when we talk you'll find me interesting
And I think you're sweet

Maybe one day we will see the other side
The shameful secretes we all try so hard to hide
Maybe on that day you'll say you love me still
But will you mean it? Well I hope to God
I pray to God you will

So I guess for now we just hope for the best
And let the universe take care of all the rest
I'm sure you've got your issues, believe me I've got mine
But we can get to all that drama in good time

Because I think you're sweet
And you say you think I'm pretty neat
Yeah I think you're sweet.
Track Name: We Are All the Same
The way she walks, you would never guess
That each step brings excruciating pain
And you could never tell by the way she dressed
Her fear of bringing her family shame
And in the earliest morning hours
I find her waiting to make a friend
She never dreams of diamonds and flowers
She never dreams that this cycle could end

Where would I be if I hadn't met your eye
Where would I be if I hadn't laid down my disguise
Where would I be if you hadn't rescued me

We are all the same, different colors different names
We are all the same, different bodies different names
We are all the same

And in the end, we are all just the same
Whether made in the image of God or from the dust of stars
And we all crave love, we just call it different names
Or we put ourselves through hell then hide our hearts
And in the earliest morning hour
She found me lost in a bad part of town
She took my hand and she put me on a bus
And she said Honey, leave this place, don't turn around

Where would I be if I hadn't met your eye
Where would I be if I hadn't laid down my disguise
Where would I be if you hadn't rescued me

We are all the same, different colors different names
We are all the same, different bodies different names
We are all the same
Track Name: All That I Am
You're a treasure I hold here in my hand
But I'm feeling so cold and I don't understand
What it would take to change your mind

And of course things are fine the way that they are
Each of us toughened by dozens of scars
Is there something more you're hoping to find

All that I am, is it enough
For you to admit you're scared of love
But it's not the same as it was before
You're not some asshole, and I'm not some whore
Not anymore

It's such an injustice that I would be sad
Got all that I ever wished that I had
Still I am longing for what you can't give

And deep down I know the problem's with me
Still grasping for meaning externally
It's just myself I need to forgive

All that I am, it is enough
Don't need you to prove I'm worthy of love
Part of me always longing for more
When will I ever settle the score?
When I walk out the door.
Track Name: Let's Just See
The road is long when it is early in the morning
Only got two hours of sleep and my head is pounding
And I think that maybe I should have taken my own advice
And thought twice
But you were oh so very nice

Spin me round in circles in your new apartment
You said it's fine, I'll get more wine, it's getting late
And I think that I might stay and play your guitar
Because home seems so very far away
I think you want me to stay
Oh hey, do you want me to stay?

It will probably complicate things
But I can't help gravitating to you
I don't really want to fight it
Pour another glass

Doesn't seem to matter that I've got commitments
Tomorrow is already here technically, and as far as I can see
I'm going nowhere
So just pull me into your arms
And let's see how things are gonna me
Let's just see
Track Name: The Real Thing
When I look up at the stars
Can't help but think of them as ours
I know that you'd capture them all for me if that was a thing
And when your hands are in my hair
And back and forth one breath we share
All walls dissolve and we become as one radiant being

My love, my love, this is the real thing

When you're far away from me
I miss you oh so terribly
I'm counting down until the day that I'm not supposed to know
But when I'm wishing you were near
I must remember to be here
This moment happening right now is the only one for sure

My love, my love, I already know

The air's so much thicker when we are together
And I'm waiting for you now
Is there such thing as a forever?
Or must we consent to what time will allow?

It's the divine I see in you
I know you see it in me too
I'm so much braver because your love has healed everything
I open up my heart to you
I'll tell you nothing but the truth
I love you more than I could ever say or ever sing

My love, my love, this is the real thing
Track Name: I'm Done
Do you see me here
Am I coming through clear enough to please your eye?
Because I'm headed for a land of sunnier shores
And bluer, truer skies
My time has run out for loving you
Waiting for you to do what you say you'll do

Will you walk, will you run
Will you say I'm the one
When I'm walking the other way?
Will you know it's too late
Will you hesitate
Will you listen to what I say?
Forget it, I'm done.

Overcome by lust that tuns into disgust
Then flips right back around
It always ends the same
When i'm playing your game
Because you always let me down

Well I've had enough of all your lies
Too much of my life has passed me by

Will you walk, will you run
Will you say I'm the one
When I'm walking the other way?
Will you know it's too late
Will you hesitate
Will you listen to what I say?

Maybe I will regret for a minute
When it's cold and I am alone
But I cannot forget you are toxic
I'll just keep all my love for my own
Will you walk, will you run
Will you say I'm the one
When I'm walking the other way?
Will you know it's too late
Will you hesitate
Will you listen to what I say?

Forget it, I'm done.
Fuck it. I'm done.
Track Name: Let's Pretend
Let's pretend February has 31 days
That red wine is good for you every day
Let's pretend that the earth is 6,000 years old
Let's pretend our planet will always stay cold
And let's pretend we're in love

Let's pretend that you actually mean what you say
Let's pretend that gay people choose to be gay
Let's pretend that cigarettes aren't that bad
Let's pretend my smile means I'm not really sad
And let's pretend we're in love

Now don't you want to be happy?
Would you rather choose to be "right"?
Just close your eyes and let compromise
Keep us both warm in the night

Let's pretend you're not still in love with your ex
Let's pretend that pulling out coins as safe sex
Let's pretend the devil and hell are real
Let's pretend that you give a shit how I feel
And let's pretend we're in love
Track Name: Disclaimer
I want to tell you that I've got it all figured out
I want to be the one who shows you how to be here now
I want to tell you that I've found the way to inner peace
I think that you should listen but not watch me too closely

Because I'm not that good at being happy
And I'm still not used to being free
Maybe we will find our way together
But I still think you should listen to me

Every morning I wake up, I usually stay in bed
I need an early start but I go back to sleep in stead
I know that to be happy meditation is the key
I want that peace so badly but my practice escapes me

Oh sloth and torpor you're seductive
Oh bed you are so soft and warm
Maybe one day all my good intentions
Will be strong enough for good habits to form

I got a lot of friends who tell you how you ought to live
No wonder we get along I'm trying to pull that same shit
I want you to be happy and I want you to be free
My ego would like to think that you can do so because of me

But really i know it doesn't matter
There really are so many paths
And if I get there I'll be sure to tell you
And every day I get another chance
Track Name: Goodbye
Stand with me under this perfect sky
We'll watch the moon as it passes by
My dear, when the sky is clear
It's just too bright

And we can see what's really going on
Will we pretend that it isn't wrong
To give in, bring back the clouds
To soften the light

You said that I don't know you well enough
To love you like I do
What choice do you leave me now
I've got to walk away from you

Before the magic fades away
Before the night's replaced by day
Before it hurts too much
I'm gonna say good bye

Sing with me now your perfect songs
I'll watch your face as I sing along
Your words convey a truth that I can feel
But I've stopped taking care of me
I'm drinking too much and I hardly sleep
My head is a mess and I can't tell what's real

But you broke the spell that made me believe
You were what I need
Your words that stung me at the time
Now they've set me free

Before the magic fades away
Before the night's replaced by day
Before it hurts too much
I'm gonna say good bye
Before I lose myself in you
Before you do the same thing, too
Before my will is gone
I'm gonna say goodbye

And I wish you and I could stand side by side
Creating a perfect world together
But we both know we would devour each other's souls
We're too old not to know better
Before the magic fades away
Before the night's replaced by day
Before it hurts too much
I'm gonna say good bye
Before I lose myself in you
Before you do the same thing, too
Before my will is gone
I'm gonna say goodbye
