Track Name: Runaway
We’ll stay up through the night
And the rest of the end of December
Nothing is forever

You’re just a young one
You’re a runaway
It doesn’t take very much
To feel sick of this place

We’ll stagger crooked under the sky
While snow drifts in delicate waves
Feeling like we’re rushing through stars in space

You’re just a young one
You’re a runaway
Unlike the babies born and grown
You were so much older and alone

You’re just a young one
You’re a runaway
I wouldn’t tell you what is what
Or try to make you stay

But you’ve got to know
That we’re connected
More than either of us expected

And if we follow any road
Whatever path you can envision
We’re an inevitable collision
Track Name: Rash Boon Romantic
Come and control me
Take me over with ease
I’ll make promises I can’t keep
Tell me what to do, please?

I hate to beg to be yours
I’m sure you’ve been here before

I’m only one grand gesture away
Anticipating what you’ve got to say
Peering over your poker face
But you stow your thoughts safe

As much as I’d like to understand
I’d never want to force your hand
Track Name: While You Were Sleeping
While you were sleeping, I was working
I’m not sure if you even heard me
As I sang you the gentlest songs I knew
You had fallen asleep after an hour or two

Of talking
Of wanting
To close the needless
Gaps between us

Last night, we spoke until morning
Time flew right by, without any warning
You dozed off, and I did the same
I’ve never been this close to someone a country away

From talking
And wanting
To close the needless
Gaps between us

To see you
What that leads to
Is a dream by itself
That I wouldn’t share with anyone else
Track Name: Wasp Nest
Wasp Nest

You tell me you like my name
When I see yours come up, I feel the same
You think you’ll wind down with piano
My, my, I’d love to hear you play
I think it’ll wind up my hive of a heart
My, my, I’d love to hear you, if that’s okay

I know I’ve said there’s a wasp nest
Sometimes it rings in my chest
I believe there’s a plan in mind
My, my, I love this orchestra in a case
When I’m wound up by my hive of a heart
My, my, I’d love for you to hear them play

My, my, I could burst
And I’m sure it wouldn’t even hurt
Track Name: Not Very Far Away
When I was looking for someone new
You shuffled in out of the blue
And you weren’t just anyone else
I was a little less all by myself

We don’t go to all the same films
But I would watch yours if you’ll watch mine still
We might have separate philosophies
That may mean we’re each other’s to complete

You could live deep in an adjacent state
Or west of my place, somewhere along Main
Our souls are timeless and everywhere
So, I find it’s hard to really care

That you’re wherever you are
You’re not very far away
If we wish on the same stars
You’re not very far away
[x3]

I was alone before I knew you then
I don’t think you know how much you’ve meant
That’s so much pressure to put on a person I just met
The weight of all that pain you make me forget
Track Name: Another Dancing Song
We dove in on opposite sides of a sea of people
Unruly tides against which we push, and we pull
I don’t know about you, but I was drowning
Though in no time at all, you somehow found me

You came surrounded by your own vignette
Or I had tunnel vision, or whatever I seem to forget
I wasn’t thinking much of the current circumstances
But rather falling and writhing in dazzling trances

I didn’t hear you speak, I just stared
I’ve been waiting for this for so long
And you don’t seem to care
But if you do, please darling, tell me what you want
We make a handsome pair
And you don’t seem to believe I’m wrong
If we’re going somewhere
I never need to hear another dancing song
Track Name: Stay the Night
Do you remember falling out like I remember falling out
It’s difficult to recall when we are where we are now
I’m fine with forgetting what led here as long as you are here
And if you’re game being close, I’ll do my best to be near

You can stay the night
Stay as long you’d like
If it feels right, only if it feels right
I truly don’t mind
Not after so much time
Coming back really seems right, do you think it seems right

You argue that you’re different, you promise you’ve got shame
But I swear with rhythms like this, what at all has really changed
I haven’t forgotten what happened, all I know is that it doesn’t matter
Finding you again reminds me of old wounds, but they heal a little faster
Track Name: Brand New Love
Restless eyes close, maybe it'll go away
Please rest tomorrow, bring a satisfying day
The restless urge of love that's worth to burning for
Maybe it's that one consuming love to give you more

Any thought could be the beginning of the brand new tangled web you're spinning
Anyone could be your brand new love
Any tithe that holds can be broken, and tear your bitter world from the open
Anyone could be your brand new love

You won't be the first, the twisted change is normal
Gossan dirt whispered to the nodding head, thrilled you fell apart instead of them
'Cause they will
'Cause any hope for love can be killed
If you need a different face, it's definitely time to destroy this place

Any thought could be the beginning of the brand new tangled web you're spinning
Anyone could be your brand new love
Follow what you feel, you alone decide what's real
Anyone could be your brand new love
Track Name: Kindred Spirits
Look for kindred spirits
They won't leave you behind

I've been looking for kindred spirits
That won't leave me behind

I think I hear them calling

I'm looking for kindred spirits
That won't leave me behind

I wish I could hear them calling
And if you could hear them calling
You finally could call one darling
If you could hear them calling

So, look for kindred spirits
They won't leave you behind
