Track Name: Goodnight, Goodbye
I don't know how
we made it this far
without a single scar

your breath draws slow
it's a fake smile
and a perfect show
I'll whisper in your ear
goodnight, and goodbye

the sun shook
the light fades
in the grass we found shade
the water was cold and clear

I returned to the lake so blue
on new year's eve
without you
and I screamed at the top of my lungs
goodnight, and goodbye

don't forget me when I say
goodnight, goodbye
Track Name: Nantucket
the summer sun fell
as I knew it would
as we settled in our house in the woods
she stole my heart
and she wouldn't let go
the cotton would fell and it blanketed us in snow

can you take it?
cause I can't take it
you went and took it

the waves washed me clean
as I walked alone
and made my way back
to our little home
she gave me her heart
and I gave her my eyes
we walked to the shore
to see the sunrise

it's gonna rise...
Track Name: Mountains + Mountains
you stand
perfect on my skin
breathe in,
breathe out.

I slipped
deeper in my sleep
take time,
to take me.

it's mountains,
it's mountains,
till I reach you,
and you're still gone.

red sun
don't steal my baby
I'm awake
I'm alive

black moon
don't leave her lonely
I'm on my way
I'm on my way back home

it's mountains,
it's mountains,
till I reach you,
and you're still gone.

you always said that would be here waiting...
Track Name: The Great Fire (Reprise)
the great fire spread
my devices will turn up dead
the colors change as we run
your love's my shelter and my gun
Track Name: King of the River
I'm the king of the river
floating free
it's clear that this is more real to you
than to me

will you catch me,
on my way down
baby please?

I'm the king of the river
deep and wide
running parallel to the pain
that you feel inside

will you catch me,
on my way down
baby please?

I'm the king of the river
trickling slow
and I left your heart to melt out
with the snow

will you catch me,
on my way down
baby please?
