Track Name: Stay
Don’t leave
I’ll die without you
I’ll break in two
I’ll burn up inside

Don’t leave
I’m wretched without you
I’ll fumble and I’ll do
Everything wrong

But don’t stay
Can’t stand you around here
You can’t call me your dear
And you can’t stay

Don’t bury me in sympathy
Don’t show me how to grieve

Don’t patronize my vanity
It’s all I have left in me

Don’t stay
Stop carrying on here
You can’t call me your dear
And you can’t stay

But don’t leave
Can’t do this by myself
I’m gonna need your help
To put her away

Don’t leave
I’m not that strong and
I’m gonna need your hand
To steady mine

Don’t stay
She left me and you’ll be
Following shortly
They never stay
They never stay
They never stay
They never stay
Track Name: One Place Forever
Honey I miss you
I wanna be with you
I’d drive through the night to wherever you are
But you just won’t hear of it

Honey I heard that you’re visiting home
After so many years you spent bouncing around
Cause you love the thrill of it

But I’m here to tell you there’s something for settling down
And I am in one place forever while you remain to be found
But when you are done running circles I’ll still be around

I have spent years watching you make a name for yourself
And I’m proud of you, I’m first in line
Don’t you see me there

You’re fine with living your life on the road
And I’m fine with waiting until you come home
You don’t seem to care.

But I’m here to tell you there’s something for settling down
And I am in one place forever while you remain to be found
But when you are done running circles I’ll still be around

Honey I lied to you
She’s yours and I am too
We’ll be here waiting till you come around
And we’ll wait forever
We will wait forever

But I’m here to tell you there’s something for settling down
And I am in one place forever while you remain to be found
But when you are done running circles I’ll still be around

Honey I miss you
I wanna be with you
I’d drive through the night to wherever you are
Track Name: Circles in the Sand
A beautiful face
Covered head to toe
In a long black veil of disgrace

Since she’s been back
From the flower shop
That was off the usual path

It was enough
To show her the fool she’s been
Since he came in without love

Hey, old friend
Let’s stop drawing circles in the sand
I miss the way we were
Before you put the lavender back in

It was enough
To make her turn her back
To all that pretty stuff

And only a wink
To make him pass by her shop
Week after week

She’d be okay
Cause maybe flowers die
But so does everything

Hey there girl
Second chances always heal old fate
You don’t need help from them
To put the lavender away
Just put the lavender away
Track Name: Early August
All the things you didn’t say
All the things left in your way
Let them be
Give them to me
All the light left in your eyes
The broken bones of your disguise
No need now
I’ll show you how

Hang on to me
Don’t leave
All the monsters are gone now, you’re safe
You can stop plotting your eventual escape
Don’t cry
Don’t close your eyes
You’re here
And free with me

Wait up now, it’s getting late
No use leaving, you better wait
Stay home
Don’t go alone
I miss your smile, the way you laugh
Wish you could find a different path
Stay here
I want you near

Hang on to me
Don’t leave
All the monsters are gone now, you’re safe
You can stop plotting your eventual escape
Don’t cry
Don’t close your eyes
You’re here
And free with me

Anyway you want me I’ll be
Anything you need I will find
Anyway you want but this
Track Name: Floating
It’s just a dream where I’m left floating
Out in space with no one really reaching

I just drift away toward what I can’t see
But if we just touched our hands and let it be

We could reach solid ground
Let the gravity pull us down
Take this weightlessness
Let it go
Feeling heavier now

At first it’s fun flying with the stars above
But all alone you begin to need someone

To help you steer away from the danger there
As long as they don’t leave you stranded

I’ll float too close to the sun
And fall away from everyone

We could reach solid ground
Let the gravity pull us down
Take this weightlessness
Let it go
Feeling heavier now

Let the gravity pull us down
Let the gravity pull us down
Let the gravity pull us down
Let the gravity pull us down
Let the gravity pull us down
Track Name: (I'm leaving you) Louella
Dear Louella
I hate to say this in a letter
It sounds so empty
But the words don’t come out right
Every time I try

Dear Louella
I don’t know why it’s so hard
To be together
When we always said we’d be forever
When we said we’d never part

Please believe me
I never lied to you, I promise
Every word I said was honest
I knew right when we met
Nothing’s changed, you saw right through me
And I’m leaving you, Louella

Dear Louella
You are too bright for me to have you
You burn too quickly
You leave me cold, you leave me less
You leave me here

Dear Louella
When I met you, you were broken
I tried to fix you
You gave all your cracks to me
You let me break

Please believe me
I never lied to you, I promise
Every word I said was honest
I knew right when we met
Nothing’s changed, you saw right through me
And I’m leaving you, Louella

Dear Louella
If we could go back to the start
Maybe things wouldn’t be so hard
You know I’ll always think of you
Even though I’m leaving you, Louella
I’m leaving you, we’re through
