Track Name: "Love"
Love, for the first time
Is the purest pain you'll ever find
And with age and in due time
You'll get numb to the tears in your eyes

I've known some I thought were perfect
I've known some that could bring me down
But it made me a better person
For the heartache I found

I don't want to close off my heart, close off my heart
To the feelings I may find in time

But love, for the last time
Is the purest pain you'll ever find
Track Name: "Ode to the City"
Another repeat from the back seat
Of the cab as we drive through the city
And as we release and slow our heartbeats
I think about leaving town

Because it seems as though
Everyone here has got something to prove
Favors and fears of being used
Breaking my heart, selling their souls

Another repeat of the back beat
In the club when we pray like the '60s
And as the lights gleam, illuminating the scene
I think about giving in

Because it seems as though
Everyone here has got something to prove
Favors and fears of being used
Finding some faith to put up your nose
Talking to God, letting it go
Breaking my heart, selling their souls
Track Name: "Wedding Bells"
It could be all in our heads
Or maybe it's the best thing we've found
And I don't want to breathe any of you out
And come down
Maybe it's only right
That we had to fight to get here
Because if anything was worth it then
It's clear

For now I'm just as well
Waiting on wedding bells
And I've known since you fell
Into my heart

I come in from the dark
And walk the path to your bed
And you forgive the words I wish I hadn't said
The man that I am
Is not the man that I was
And there is room now in my arms
To hold love

And for now I'm just as well
Waiting on wedding bells
And I've known since you fell
Into my heart

All those tears we shed full of fear
For our love and those years
Are drying out, drying out

For now I'm just as well
Waiting on wedding bells
And I've known since you fell
Into my heart
For now I'm just as well
Waiting on wedding bells
And from what I can tell
We belong
Track Name: "New World"
New town, new world
Bury the good girls underground
Demon suitcase
Put on the new face I've found

And now the hardest part
Is hiding in the dark
From the streetlight charade
I guess the only thing
Left to do is think
And self-medicate

Living a good life, fighting a good fight
Should be enough for me
But I'm so scared of failing
I've bastardized all my pain
And my beliefs

I'm leaving everyone
That I really love
For the skyline downtown
The lights are shining bright
Barrage of fireflies
But I just hear the sound
Track Name: "Julianne"
I'll write you, despite you
So you'll know you're not alone
I'll miss you and long to kiss you
When I'm so far from home

And if anyone is ever doubting you
Tell them you know how true lovers do

I know you and know that you won't say
What you need to say
You know me and know I only want reasons
For you to have to stay

And if anyone is ever doubting you
Tell them you know how true lovers do

Oh Julianne
Well I can't seem to look away from you
Help me understand
Why I can't replace you
No matter what I do

I'll write you, despite you
So you'll forget I left you alone
I'll miss you and long to kiss you
But I'm not coming home

And if anyone is ever doubting you
Tell them you know how true lovers do
Nothing in our lives will be this true
Tell them you know how true lovers do
Track Name: "Old Flame"
For the rest of my life
I'll be in love with the sound of the night
And I'll quietly hide myself
From the sunshine
In another life
I'd be the reason that you stay alive
But for now I'm reserved
To disappoint you

And the old flame
It burns, it burns all day
And the smoke rises up
To blow my head away
And it breaks my heart
To watch you try to put it out again
Because the old flame
It burns, it burns always
