Track Name: Wildflowers
Breathe me in your skin I breathe you in my skin the most
Holding me in your arms I hold you in my arms alone

Hello glad I saw you today
You know I’ve got nothing to say

Need me like I need you I need you like you needed me
Take a look overhead I take a look overhead I see you here

Hello how’d I find you today
You know I need nothing to say

I close my eyes its blue in you and clear as day
Have I lost my mind losing you
Track Name: In August
I’ll wait for the morning to come
Night bleeds in a darkened kingdom
The moon lights my sky and I wonder why

Wait for me Emily

I woke up in August breathing
To a heart full brown eyes so soothing
The moon lights my sky and I don’t care why

Wait for me Emily
The moon lights my sky and I wonder why

Grip me
Calm me
Track Name: Further
Rippling waters are coming my way
A flow in the tide sets the sail that’s been here for days
The fog thickens in with a wind that’s too thin to trace
You belong to no place that belongs in no space I’d chase

Now its further than the sight to see it
It’s a long way down into the depths of meaning
And your bones get colder at the height of seasons
With a lack of patience in the air your breathing

Boulders of fear how their tumbling my way
A cool of the mist lets me go ‘til I feel okay
But it’s a breeze off the river that makes me shiver the most
Until a breath off the coast lets me know that I’m close to home

You’ve gotta be kidding me I’ve been alone
For too long to know which way to go
Track Name: When The Storm Is Near
Fall comes in through the door
The wind on its feet my eyes hit the floor
I see the wood makes room for no sound
With a cool in the air and leaves on the ground
I feel a breeze move in through the trees
When the storm is near I hear the wind singing

Walls break in through the core
The strength in my knees collapse to the floor
I see the bones adjust to the ground
With a hole in my soul that breaks pound for pound
I see the tide move in from outside
When the storm is near I hear the wind singing

Storm comes in on the water
Where you go I won’t follow
