Track Name: Reach The Coast
I came then
Left with something different
Than these boxes in my hands
And threw out all the cycles
That never seem to end
But you
Left me sound asleep
To dream
Of who I need to be

We’re fed up with the scenery
And wish to reach the end
I came to watch the days go by
And left wishing you were here
But now
I’m so close I can barely stand up
And I can almost reach the coast
Track Name: Weights & Currents
Where do I begin?
I've lost track of every sudden movement
The world is straining my back
With all its weights and currents
When will we really see the air we breathe?

Potential is my design
When disillusion is what my head
Answers to
Who have I been all these years?
I haven't found out yet
Remind me where home is again
The place I forget the most

My heart
What have you become?
Help me find my peace
And lay these demons to rest
I have to get back to where I left off
The coast once seemed so close to home
I'll extend my hand and breathe you in

Weights and currents are taking me under
Don't let me go, don't let me go
Just don't let go
Track Name: Dockside
I sold myself short
But now I'm finding descriptions that I lost
There’s no more dust in my head
This is all the new me
The one you never knew
Deep inside I've found
The right words to say
Ill choose them carefully

I never told you how much I cared
It's true I always wish I could have been there
By the dockside
Swinging again just me and you
Tell me how do we get back?

I was caught of guard
You always got the best of me
There's so much left on the table
To leave for four months
And find myself again
I wasn't hard to find
In the first place

I’m awakened by the fact that
This is where I meant to be
But stuck in a never ending cycle
So let's...
...Get out of here
And set the record straight
Throw me a line
Draw me closer to you
Track Name: Answers
Tonight we’ll learn where these words can lead
You can’t hold on and
I can’t let go
Fools we’ll make of ourselves
To make it work
The answers are just outside my reach
They won’t fall through
But just this time I might
Make it right
Right before I speak

And I’ll be coming back around

Where did you go?
I waited there for so long
Begging you don’t let me go
Don’t let me go
I’m already gone now
But I’ve learned enough to make it back home
I waited there for so long
Begging you don’t let me go
Don’t let me go
I’m already gone now
But I’ve learned enough to make it back home

What does it mean to scream these words back home to you
The southern breeze won’t take us far away from here
But if we catch on just right, maybe next time
We can’t run away from all our stupid mistakes

And I’ll be coming back around

For once in my life I know I’m doing things right
But it’s time to break out of this shell
And show the world what I’m all about
Bags packed by the door
I’ve only got one chance to get away
Better times are still to come
We better speed up to catch them
Before I’m face first on the floor
Track Name: Crashing
I'm trapped in a chorus
That I once loved
I had to staple my mouth shut
Not to tell you
How much I need you
170 miles is too far away tonight
You're too far away tonight

Let's lay low
And see what time brings
Doors are open wide
I can almost see inside
Surely you need me too
When everything feels so right
Surely you're what I've waited for

I'm a simple man
And was figured out day one
All I need is consistency
When the waves come
Crashing through my head/me

There's no turning back
No turning back again
I'm pressing my luck
But my odds are fine
There's no turning back
No turning back from you
When the waves are
Crashing through my head/me
Track Name: Stay
What if different roads led straight back to home?
Can we say that we don't know where to go?
Slow and steady
Here we are again
I can promise it gets better
Only my youth can keep me upright
Before we say goodbye

Let's compromise hope and sanity
And trust our hearts
Will lead to something new
The storms will pass
Our lives will change
All I want is you to stay

Lock the gates
The Tide wont reach us
But we're constantly
Pulled out to sea
Now my heart is racing
Both my hands are shaking
I ask the ceiling
"where has time gone?"
But when I close my eyes
I've never felt more alive

Just stay
Stay for the hope
Stay for the lights
That spark and fade out
Just stay
Stay for the town
Stay for the lines
We may never hear again
Track Name: Words I Can't Speak
Before I spit out every last word I could have said
I got lost in space and time
Can we see right through
A gesture or a timeframe
When standing in the future
Beside the coldest flame?

Wait, there's much more to this
Our time is coming to an end
So why can't we speak
What we need to speak
Wait, here we go again
I may never see you again
So why can't we speak
What we need to speak

We're empty off unsung transition
And standing on nothing but a tight rope
I've given up on everything I've tried to say
Maybe we'd be better off living that way
The currents led me to east coast when I lost sight of comfort
The hardest part was leaving you behind
You will always own a place in my mind

We've cleared space
Before we could reach arrival
These pages never read
"One stop til home"
We’ve seen all we have to see to know
I’m going in alone
Shift focus from “right now”
And see right through this
Track Name: Sounds of Nashville, Thoughts of Home (Feat. AJ Perdomo of The Dangerous Summer)
The only 2 ounces of hope
Remaining of this vacant town
Won't stop spinning
Every eye sees
These open door dreams
How will I reach you?
My fingertips almost graze you
Can you keep me safe and
Keep me wide-awake?

And I'll be home again
To come back to you
Before I see a 9 to 5 tick by
Time zones bring an hour back to life

We are only waiting for
The softest glow of green outside your dock
I can hardly see that far
We're looking at
Time zones and timelines
And thinking we should be somewhere we're not
Don't try to bury every turn

Sirens caught in my tracks
Left me safe and sound
While a soft glow
Out shines a darkened silhouette
Help me carry every decision
I've never been so close
Intertwine my ghost and soul
And you won't find me
At the start again
