Track Name: All Affirming
I drive through four lanes of strange and you said, "magic"
and I'm aware that nothing about this situation is tragic
and I would like to get to know me
and I look to you as you're asleep in the passenger's seat
I believe, yes I, I believe that I have to go away for a while

I strive for concepts and change that I'm not sure of
and I admit that I've lost all the things I liked the allure of
and I would like to tell you everything
but I know how things works and I don't mind waiting
I believe, yes I, I believe that I have to go away for a while

I fly through five miles of mange that is the highway
Going, I've never seen it like this on a Friday
and I could not just travel aimlessly
I know it would take some time for amnesty
I believe, yes I, I believe that I have to go away for a while

If I were at my home
I'd sit on my couch that smells like cigarettes
inside my house that isn't finished yet
and I'd speak to you as if you were in the room

I smile on all those who estrange themselves from this pavement
Knowing I can't even see, this road's too fragrant
And I could not just be a slave to this
to all the other steel boxes and radio bliss
I believe, yes I, I believe that I have to go away for a while

If I were so honest
I love the scent of the suburbs in
the summer time and your sun soaked skin
but I would know better than to be all affirming

And I drive through four lanes of strange and you said, "magic"
and I'm aware that nothing about this situation is tragic
and I would like you to believe in me
now you're awake and you look at me like you don't know me
I believe, yes I, I believe that I have to go away for a while
Track Name: Second Floor Apartment
You went walking now down by the beach
until your feet would no longer
until your hands would no longer

You were always now just out of reach
until my arms would no longer
until my legs could no longer

But I just could not leave Washington Street
no I just could not leave
while I was in love with the occupant of the second floor apartment
and you know I'd love to earn your trust
but that's not my department, is it now?

There's a man upstairs with a ring on his hand
who thinks he has you
who hopes he has you still

but i just could not leave washington street
no i just could not leave
while i was in love with the occupant of the second floor apartment
and you know i'd love to earn your trust
but that's not my department, is it now?

My memories of us are walking through snow
Maybe i just had no way to know
that all these footprints on Washington Street
would melt down into the sea

While I was in love with the one who's truth does lie
deep beneath her shoreline
and you know i'd love to be your one
but I don't think I could be, one of two
if you knew

There's a man down there who knows not what he has
who thinks he has you
Track Name: Knew
I don't think that I belong
it surprises me I'm not already gone
and I don't know if I know you
and I don't think that I do
and I don't think that I can hold you
and I don't know if you knew, just what I knew

I don't think that I can help
but feel a little bit like hell
every time that I look at you
and every time that I do
I don't think that I could leave you
and I don't know if you knew, just what I knew

'Cause your eyes are so god damn blue
they remind me I never really had you
but please tell me that isn't true
that there's something I didn't do
but I knew

You came as such a fine surprise
that happened right before my eyes
about as quickly as you came to be
and I don't know if you can be
just what I need

'Cause your eyes are so god damn blue
they remind me I never really had you
but please tell me that isn't true
please tell me that I'm just going crazy
that there's something I didn't do
maybe that I was just being lazy
but I don't know, I don't know
but you knew
Track Name: Without You
I don't know how the time defies
If I told you once then I've told you twice
But that don't mean a goddamn thing
And I don't mean a goddamn thing without you

So tell me know, if I do my best
while my heart, it shakes inside my chest
Do I stand a chance? Do I get your best?
'Cause I don't know if I stand a chance without you
No, I don't think that I stand a chance without you

Can I let you know? Can I just own up?
That I don't dream of another face while I am slumbering
And I'll tell you now, honey, I admit
To fall asleep is to fall behind is to fall so hard for you

I guess I should not be surprised
If in the morn when I open my eyes
You're on my mind as I lie awake without you
But I just don't think that my sun will rise without you
without you
