Track Name: Bayhouse
The waves are crashing from the dock of your bay house
I am still drifting trying to wade through all my mind
I’m diving under, hiding behind the moon now
Two in the morning and the miles behind

The waves are crashing down on me and I need you
I’m waiting up alone just sleepless tonight

I’m lost sleeping here in my basement
She’s sleeping somewhere far away
I sift through the static of my mind
I’m finding that she’s too much to take

The mile markers stretching out from the ocean
I hold you closer from the edges of my mind
The minutes pass and pass and gone with the daylight
Everyone’s sleeping as I wait through all the night

I’ve been waiting, saving my breath now
Please just take me down to your bay house
When I catch you slowing your breath down
And you dream, bring us to your bay house
Track Name: Sunstroke
I’m waiting up ‘cause you’re here inside my mind
And I wonder all the time why I couldn’t just let you know
Run run run run
Everyone is seeing through
Run run run run
Now I’m racing through the month of June
I’m trying to tell you now

I’m pouring out, sinking down into the street
In the the summer in the heat wishing I could just tell you now
Waste my time
I fade to the summer sun
Read my lips
Forgive me when it all just comes out wrong
I trying to tell you now

I just wondered if you could let me in

Wait in the sun, falling farther in love
Wishing I could just say these things I’ve wanted to
Sailing away, reaching under the waves
And I fall till I break ‘cause I just can’t get to you

I’m waking up, leaving all of this behind
‘Cause you never leave my mind, and I stumble into the sun
Run run run run
Everyone is seeing through
Run run run run
Now I’m racing through the month of June
I couldn’t tell you now

I’ll wait in the sun falling farther in love
I can’t say if I’m ever coming home

Wait in the sun and I know that I love you
It’s in my head and I can’t hold onto
Bright as the tides washing over my head
Keeping me down and I can’t hold onto

I’m catching up and you tell me now that I
Wasn’t ever far behind. Why couldn’t you let me know?
Track Name: Diving to the Bottom
I could spend my days diving to the bottom of it all

Grab your things, get on an airplane
Take the pictures from the runway
Faded, cloudy shots of sunrise
Landing to the city skyline
Pictures vanish as we go

I could spend my days, diving to the bottom of it all

Raise your glass to here and now
Pretending we’re all waking from a dream
Knowing this could be the end
Is never quite as easy as it seems
So we all sing

My, oh, my
I’ve got time, I’ve got time
Would I lie?
I am fine, I am fine
My, oh, my
I’ve got time, I’ve got time
Would I lie?
I am fine, I am fine

Drink up, drink up, take another
Hazy thoughts from several summers
Crashing in your friend’s apartment
Waking up on filthy carpets
I can’t ever let it go

So drink with me my dear, diving to the bottom of it all
Track Name: At the End (Part 1)
Oh, and when the storms come flooding through the hall
Rising to the landing tearing pictures from the walls
The currents pull us underneath, that bright tide rips us out
Into a tangled coral reef where we will never drown

Now that we’re at the end
I’ve tried to tell myself it’s always been you

Should I continue on and let you make this place your own
Or should we float off with the waves until we’re taken home
‘Cause if we sank along into the tide
Our shadows cast out long and crooked lines
Even if you might not follow through

As the sun is swallowed up from view
The last face that I’d see belongs to you
Track Name: At the End (Part 2)
So, if I took your hand as parades passed us by
Would it be in my head?
Is it all in my head?
And if you let me go as the marching band’s tune
Slowly fades to the night
Is it all in my head?

But even if you don’t follow now I will wait until you do
And even if you’re scared to somehow I will wait for you

Or if we took ourselves to the end of the street
You and I side by side
All in my head

It’s nice to think of you this way
Here at the end of the day
‘Cause even if you don’t follow now I will wait until you do
And even if you’re scared to somehow I will wait for you

We’ll pass into the swells
The brightest tide can’t save this now
