Track Name: A Light
It's all over now
Nobody left to bother
You have them fooled, now run to save face

Haunting my dreams
I think it is a good thing
Just hit the light on your way out

Pictures of you
Pictures of both me and you
No matter what is next
I'm not alone
Track Name: Between the Bars (Elliott Smith Cover)
Drink up baby
Stay up all night
With the things you could do
You won't, but you might
The potential you'll be
That you'll never see
The promises you'll only make

Drink up with me now
And forget all about
The pressure of days
Do what I say
And I'll make you okay
Drive them away
The images stuck in your head

Of people you've been before
That you don't want around anymore
They push and shove and won't bend to your will
I'll keep them still

Drink up baby
Stare at the stars
I'll kiss you again
Between the bars
Where I'm seeing you there
With your hands in the air
Waiting to finally be caught

Drink up one more time
And I'll make you mine
Keep you apart
Deep in my heart
Separate from the rest
Where I like you the best
And keep the things you forgot

The people you've been before
That you don't want around anymore
They push and shove and won't bend to your will
I'll keep them still
Track Name: Dusk
When the sun begins to set
You can feel the regret
Of all of the souls who have gone
As if they refuse to move on

I dream of becoming old
Filled with regret at my wake
Before I pinch myself
I'm already young and awake

I've seen your--
I've seen your dreams
Don't leave them--
Don't leave them be
