Track Name: There Are
I reach out gently to some old friends that I have neglected these past few years. I imagine each of their hands recoiling as I try to explain where I’ve been

There are always apologies on my lips

Every hardship they’ve been through that I missed, all the little woes that bloomed in my absence. I wring my hands as I speak and keep it vague
Rest my eyes on the ground and try not to shake

There are always apologies on my lips

I’ve failed everyone so often that I can barely keep up with it
Track Name: Old Ways
I don’t deserve the kindness of my long suffering friends
Or the pleasure of leaving town for just a few days
When I get home I’ll settle back in to my old ways
But I shouldn’t speak in case they’ve got it worse than me

I can’t quiet my mind when it turns on me
I can’t quiet my mind when it turns to you

I hurt myself in a few small ways I can hide
Old bruises turn blue then fade if given time
I blame myself for things that I could never even change
Like the slow drift of your love away from me

I can’t quiet my mind when it turns on me
I can’t quiet my mind when it turns to you
Track Name: I Can't Believe That You're Gone
You threw up round Luke’s house
So we carried you home
Put you to bed in the cellar
But by morning you’d gone
When I got my heart broken
You rushed to my side
Filled our nights with cheap lager
And the first songs that we would write

I can’t believe that you’re gone

We kicked you out of the band
For some childish reason
But time passed and there we were again
In a van on our way to London
Wildly drunk and frantic nights
When you would sleep on my floor
You left town some years later
And we didn’t speak for a while

I can’t believe that you’re gone

I’m so sorry
