Track Name: Mile Marker
if you stole from me 
i blame myself
i gave too long, didn’t i
it’s no mystery

the sun makes its course
by the eve across the sky
be be be just as sure
i’ll get up and wipe my eyes

i can see far from here
i can see far from here
i can see for from here
Track Name: Home Without You
the tales we tell
turn my heart inside out
little by every little

the words you speak
i tuck in my clothes
all day long as i breathe

we could make a home
a cabin in the trees
where days and nights
would be even sweeter
sights unfold in simple melodies
i’ll build it for you
i’ll build it with my bare hands

i wander this town best i can
on my own two feet
wish i had your hand to hold onto
it’s incomplete
this home without you
it’s incomplete
this home without you
it’s incomplete
Track Name: Perfectly Bound
don’t even know how or where to begin
opening line of a chapter all but gone
there’s a card catalogue on your floor in piles baby
it’s obvious, obvious

ooo

line me up perfectly bound on your shelf
safe and sweet with a ribbon down my spine
i’m covered in your handwriting
all pretty like the colors
you once memorized with your fingertips

a book not worth readin anymore
a book not worth readin anymore
Track Name: Evelyn Cameron
pack your things we’re in it, we’re in a hurry
the western question mark burns with a fury
take a chance we’ll make it, bravely
we will go

we arrived with hope in hand
but it didn’t take long for the weight to settle in
or the glory

we belong here

we were so sure but i’m beginning to wonder
when the hail falls hard from the sky
i’m beginning to wonder
time’s not on our side
i’m beginning to wonder

if we belong here
we belong here

so i’ll keep on writing
as days go by, days go by

we belong here
Track Name: So the Story Goes
so the story goes
bit by bit it unfolds
it’s not like you to tell
decoration, declaration

what did you leave on my
my doorstep my doorstep
but a name like a cold wind, a cold wind

with a handshake we’ll part ways
part ways with what i’ve been told
never could look me in the eye
knowing lies that would take hold

so the story goes
bit by bit it unfolds
across the yard
we never knew us as belonging

with a handshake we’ll part ways
part ways with what i’ve been told
never could look me in the eye
knowing lies that would take hold

in this lifetime of mine
reconciling won’t be swift
been fumbling for some sense of this
Track Name: Tide, Ferocious
he trees started breakin at night while we were sleeping
the roof started to cave in, just like us
the storm it sank in underneath our blankets
couldn’t see my reflection in the moon

words fell off your lips
didn’t know quite where to put them
your breath is on my shoulder
didn’t know i could keep it

you know & i know it’s true
you know & i know it’s true

where were we when it was over
i swear it was slow motion
the tide rolled in ferocious and stole you away
you went away
Track Name: Wreckage of a Great Ship
wreckage of a great ship
once with sails of canvas
now we’re made of losses and arguments
wasn’t like we planned it
i’m wrecklessly candid
we set sail from what we thought were our best lands

you and your new apartment
i’m held up in basements
pull the curtains closer be my eyes blankets
you and your new acquaintance
i’m held up in basements
sign away the former with your favorite pen

wreckage of a good ship
you in your life jacket
i was holding on for dear life in my party dress
you’re so put together
but i’m another planet
a planet now unsure of finding new oceans

you’re so put together
but i’m another planet
a planet now unsure of finding new oceans
Track Name: Oh, Surveyor
oh surveyor of the land
cast your glance
no lines on the map
got your twine in hand
where to begin

i swear there’s gold in those hills
acres are plenty in heart
but lately the winters are long
they’ll do their best to make
what they’ve been planted for

oh surveyor of the stars
cast your glance
on the dotted canvas
your lantern lit
patient script on your lips

i swear there’s gold in those hills
acres are plenty in heart
but lately the winters are long
they’ll do their best to make
what they’ve been planted for
Track Name: Shoemaker
o to the shoemaker 
they forced your exit out the side door 
when you found out you weren’t made for it 
laces undone no need for repairs anymore 

i see you doubt in the thousands of minutes 
oh rest assured you have no need but one

to be a shoemaker
weaving the needle and thread with a force
gently piece together one sole at a time
but now it’s time for yours
Track Name: Hem Me In
on this boat
i’m a sailor faux
it’s a lost go
in my bones

my failed attempts
know me all too well
it’s not what you’ve made me for

throw me overboard
i’ll do my best
sink or swim they say
i gotta keep runnin

it’s not enough
legs are failin
still you wrap around
to hem me in
to hem me in
