Track Name: Let Go
How did I become the one... who
left and said we’re done... ooh
We know we can never wind back the clock
we run

We sleep in beds we’ve made
dirty sheets we’ve won
laying there with you I know in time
i’ll run

I wanna know how to let go
of regrets without indifference
of regrets without indifference
ooh ooh

How do we reconcile
all of these trials
we know we can never wind back the clock
we run

I wanna know how to let go
of regrets without indifference
of regrets without indifference
ooh ooh
Track Name: Ocean
The ocean is dry
i feel like somethings not right
what is this thing I can't name
when there's no one to blame?

Well I'm taking my time
to bring it back to the line
give up these things that aren't mine

The music plays; I’m feeling all right

I get together with my maker and I'm
working it out

There's no perfect time
no list of hills you should climb
to feel your place in the game
you press for infinite play

Well I’m watching the tide
it's lettin’ out like a sigh
that’s how I'm fully alive

The music plays; I’m feeling all right

I get together with my maker and I'm
Working it out

I'm edging towards the line
I'm moving through the tide
The music feels alright
Yeah.
Track Name: Between the Walls
I want to feel it all
run but cannot move
want to play and sing
i stand between the walls
go out on my own
stand along the edge

Does this sound like laughing
can you tell I'm trying

A memory
of open sky
i’m losing sleep
i’ll never be the same
a victory for none

I want to see it all
colors lose their their hue
wanted everything
i stand between the walls
things I cannot reach
will they come to me

I swear I used to
a'least I think so

A memory
of open sky
i’m losing sleep
i’ll never be the same
a victory for none
