Track Name: The Daylight
Can't believe she's gone, I
Can't believe she's gone, I
Can't believe she's gone away

Darkness was my future,
Hopeless were the patterns,
Callous was my heart, so it seems

Oh, I should sing a little bit faster,
I'm to blame for this disaster,
I'm repairing my heart for you,
Oh and I should breathe a little bit softer,
Oxygen reminds me I lost her,
I'm repairing my heart for you

Can't believe she's gone, I
Folded on the creases,
Tore myself to pieces now

But blessed was the daylight that,
Flooded my hearts windows, and
Cleared the smoke that billows out

Oh, I should sing a little bit faster,
I'm to blame for this disaster,
I'm repairing my heart for you,
Oh and I should breathe a little bit softer,
Oxygen reminds me I lost her,
I'm repairing my heart for you

Peace my body, Oh my soul - to find, no I don't mind
Break my hardened heart to show, that I, yea I was blind
Lay my body on the shore, to find, no I don't mind

Can't believe she's gone, I'm
Casting out the demons
Letting go of reasons why

Welcome was the daylight that
Found where I was hiding, and
Fought the dark residing there

Oh, I should sing a little bit faster,
I'm to blame for this disaster,
I'm repairing my heart for you,
Oh and I should breathe a little bit softer,
Chemicals remind me I lost her,
I'm repairing my heart for you
Track Name: Sky's Still Blue
You never see clearly, till you stop crying
I never found it, until I stopped trying
I stumbled upon you and fell through the ceiling tiles

I started a fire, to smoke out my treasons
I tore down a building, to pick up the pieces
And now on a clear glass wall, I can see our fate
but it’s a little too late

Oh If you’re hearing this
I must have made it through
Oh when the clouds above open up through my window
I’ll see the sky’s still blue

I made the incision, I begged and I borrowed
I traded my vision, for heartache and sorrow
But now that I’ve found my sight
I finally realize, I was born to go blind
Track Name: All Those Pretty Lights (Alternate Universe Version)
the wind blows through your hair
as you're walking people stare
up the block
and down the street
to north kings highway
and there's a beating in my
chest
and it's seeming to suggest
that before this day is through
it might
go my way
so i sit back in my seat
i scribble down something that's
sweet
about a boy, a girl
and endless stretch of scenery
cause it's like
falling to your knees
before a stranger on the street
i did it just the other
day
you should have seen me

oh and i wanna remember this night
and how my
words never
came out right
it's just my patience that keeps
me alive
just
like all those pretty lights
just like all those pretty lights
in the
sky

there's something to be said
about the colors in your head
and how
they mix to form
the perfect shade of sadness
not because of things i've
done
or any of the songs i've sung
it's just the story of our lives
we wish
we had this

and i remember we stayed up
way past you're bedtime
up on the
2nd floor
down by my sliding door
just innocent kids
in a victimless
crime
trapped in a metaphor
hoping for something more
Track Name: In My Veins - Live (Bonus Track)
Nothing goes as planned
Everything will break
People say goodbye
In their own special way
All that you can rely on
And all that you could fake
Will leave you in the morning
Come find you in the day
Oh, you’re in my veins, and I cannot get you out
Oh, you’re all I taste, at night inside of my mouth
Oh, you run away, cause I am not what you found
Oh, you’re in my veins, and I cannot get you out
Everything will changed
Nothing stays the same
Nobody is perfect
Oh, but everyone is to blame
All that you rely on
And all that you can save
Will leave you in the morning
Will find you in the day
Oh, you’re in my veins, and I cannot get you out
Oh, you’re all I taste, at night inside of my mouth
Oh, you run away, cause I am not what you found
Oh, you’re in my veins, and I cannot get you out
No I cannot get you out
No I cannot get you out
Oh no, I cannot get you out
No I cannot get you out
Everything is dark
It’s more than you could take
But you catch a glimpse of sunlight
Shining
Shining down on your face
Your face
On your face
Oh, you’re in my veins, and I cannot get you out
Oh, you’re all I taste, at night inside of my mouth
Oh, you run away, cause I am not what you found
Oh, you’re in my veins, and I cannot get you out
No, i cannot get you out
No, i cannot get you out...
Oh no, I cannot get you...
Track Name: The Ladder - Live (Bonus Track)
woe is me
faithless you and selfish me
i will leave a key for you outside my doorway

woe is me
one if by the land, or two by sea
so won’t you leave, for me, a light outside your doorway

on a ladder from there to here i’ll climb
all this clatter between my ears i find
does it matter if i cant clear my mind?
There’s a right and a wrong time

Woe is me
Sentimental you and faithful me
And i will be the one to gaze on you discreetly

Slow your speed
Turn yourself around and follow me
Cause i will be the one who preys upon you sweetly

on a ladder from there to here i’ll climb
all this clatter between my ears i find
does it matter if i can’t clear my mind?
There’s a right and a wrong time

on a ladder from there to here i’ll climb
all this clatter between my ears i find
does it matter if i can’t clear my mind?
There’s a right and a wrong time
