I heard a distant call A distant pull on my arm Lying to my good luck charm Lying to my mind Dreamin’ till the truth sets in I should’ve let you dream with me Lying to my good luck charm Lying to believe I heard a distant call It was nothing at all I heard a distant call It was nothing It was nothing It was nothing at all Did you hear the one about Selling the farm to buy the house I lost my chance to test the line I guess i’m doing fine Chorus I should’ve trusted your instincts Known by now mine always stink I should’ve gone with you, I should’ve known what was best I guess I needed rest Chorus
2.
In the beginning of the end We were forever friends Hug and hold a hand Breathe each other in In the middle of the start We were magnetic hearts Two pulls, two poles, too bad We did each other in In the last of the beginning We lasted to the ending Didn’t we look quite a pair when Our hearts were singing In the loop that is believe We were forced to slink and sleek Grabbing on a dream’s thin tail Hoping golds beneath them hills In the aftermath of fate When we knew we were too late Too close to over to restart we lost the Magnets in our heart

Every song, another question Every sentence, so sincere Every time you think you miss them Lonely endings reappear Every house, another portal Every fence, another dream Every baby newly bouncing Pray that things aren’t what they seem Even on the brightest morning Caught between the silver light Every shadow hides a dawning like you Would imagine shadows might All the big ideas are dead That’s all i’ve ever really meant Every light, another good day Every heaven, upward sent Every moon, from all the angles Lonely in its’ element Even on the brightest morning Caught between the silver light Every shadow hides a dawning like you Would imagine shadows might

It takes a thief It takes a tour guide It takes some time to recognize It takes the street It takes the gaslight It takes the distance that it buys It takes a thief It takes a tour guide It takes some time to recognize It takes the street It takes the gaslight It takes the distance in your eyes Your head is your home, but You don’t know when you’ll be back Oh, what place do you go The places i know you know i mean Wild at heart, tired of art Are not a healthy combination It takes a thief It takes a tour guide It takes some time recognize
5.
Put the phone away please Can I get some of your time Undivided Undistracted Can you put your eyes on mine Tell me what’s got you so blue Can you trust me with your crime Unchallenged Unobjected Can you put your eyes on mine What’s this modern fascination Distraction from our hearts The safest cage is still a home The blankest page still art I’ve got an idea to try pretend we’re back in time Unburdened Unable To keep your eyes off mine
6.
I can’t believe the truth sometimes It’s all wrapped in lies I’m not saying you’re not being honest Just maybe honest in disguise I can’t believe my luck sometimes It’s hard enough to fail I’m not saying i don’t deserve it But God, are you for real I can’t go back in time sometimes Memory is just barbed wire I’m not saying it’s too high a fence Just that maybe a fall will scar I can’t be the world i need sometimes My ego might just need a friend I’m not saying I’m not capable But God, if not now when I can’t believe the truth sometimes It’s all wrapped in lies I’m not saying you’re not being honest Just maybe honest in disguise
7.
In the still of morning air Painted on the sky’s tall walls In the morning I don’t care What was said for spite or cause And if you ever get the urge To wake up from those dreams you’re falling You can call it steps towards proof That from the grip of death you’re crawling In the space between the days What some call peace and some delay You can hold your head up high If only with a dreamer’s grace If the dust of morning shakes Itself off you in great escapes It will return to say it’s peace Rearranged but thick as thieves Just how we believed I say deep breaths should be in order You tell me that of course they are In the space between the days What some call peace and some delay I guess that’s where we’ll stay
8.
How did it sound when the bells rang out Did it timber like trees And howl like a mouth I’ve never heard anything like it And i trust you to tell me If you can describe it
9.
Because I don’t want to, that’s why Can’t say more than that, I’ve done most what you’ve asked But I draw the line at that Because the real reason is Something more deep, something more indiscreet And I still just can’t, just, no What’s the difference in a night’s rest The mornings are nothing new The arc of our joy is long and slow Nothing you’d notice with the dew Doesn’t it just get your goat These words that won’t leave your throat Cause it really seems like it does And I love how you know that I know Say again what you mean Can’t hear you over the wind I couldn’t hear you please say it again Say again what you mean Because I don’t want to, that’s why Can’t say more than that, I’ve done most what you’ve asked But I draw the line at that

So many nights, so many poisons So many hearts inside So many needs, so many noises So many ways to die So many doubts, so many warnings So many stars in the sky So many dreams, so many boring So many ways to die So many shouts, so many stories So many pints gone dry So many roads, so many dark lanes So many ways to die So many hints, so many hanging So many hands untied So many hopes, so many misdeeds So many ways to die So many worlds, so many choices So many lonely nights So many fears, so many voices So many ways to die
11.
See the morning moon low in the sky On a turquoise hill, pale and wide Shrinking in his age, stooping in his height Hiding from the spoils of the night Hiding from the spoils of the night See the forlorn fool lost in his own mind Unrequited love is not a victimless crime Torn by the neon, and cut by the bar The shadows of morning cover his scars The shadows of morning cover his scars Shadows Several someones have tried with much might To climb the wall that keeps him climbing at night He’s not being chased, or being followed But when he slows down he finds it hard to swallow When he slows down he finds it hard to swallow Shadows
