Track Name: Harbor
we close our eyes in your room and all our fears go to sleep. when you wake us in the morning we always walk away as silent as ghosts. i never lose a word about how much this place feels like a home and somehow i always bite my tongue when i really want to smile. you know there are games i couldn’t ever win but you make me try over and over again and i want to thank you for that.
Track Name: Cardboard City
i wonder how the city sleeps at night when the fog makes the streetlights shine so bright. i couldn’t close my eyes waiting for the sunset. waiting for a sunday that never comes. the engine broke down. the wheels are stuck. we revolve around ourselves like the center of the world. like a broken carousel. until we get back to where we stood yesterday. the clocks are ticking and the wind blows my castles of sand away and spits into my face but i know it’s just a temporary state until i change my address and the city changes its name.
Track Name: Rosehip
winter put me to sleep and covered me in blankets of leaves. i watch the days pass by as my trains depart. my mouth is sewn shut and my heart is barely beating. so here i stand waiting for the seasons to change until summer will melt these past days away. i wonder if i will ever cope with this life or ever say a word.
