Track Name: Our Heart's Boom Boom
I awaken to that dream again
shadows flock like crows around me
I can't see you
but I sense which way to run, so I run to

our hearts’ boom, boom, boom, boom, boom
our hearts’ boom, boom, boom, boom, boom
growing louder and louder
'til I find our tiny room
louder 'til all I hear is you

wars wage on somewhere
gales poltergeist the air

stars change formation
spelling out "danger"
so how come we never looked up?
how come we never looked up?

as our hearts’ boom, boom, boom, boom, boom
our hearts’ boom, boom, boom, boom, boom
grew louder and louder
'til it filled up our tiny room
louder 'til all I heard was you

I awaken to that dream again
in darkness we held so close that our breath was a sparrow
passed back and forth between our throats

our hearts’ boom, boom, boom, boom, boom
our hearts’ boom, boom, boom, boom, boom
our hearts’ boom, boom, boom, boom, boom
our hearts’ boom, boom, boom, boom, boom

grows louder and louder
'til it transcends up our tiny room
louder 'til all I know is true
louder 'til all I hear is you
louder 'til all I know is you
Track Name: Spring Comes On
Spring comes on
insinuates and sighs
her lullaby
staring ‘cross
the backyards through the woods down to your house

your words begin
like a sweet Amen
but then we're doin' it all again
then we're doin' it all again
ohh....yeah we're doing it all again

last night
last call
left off in mid-song
an old game of musical chairs
there we were the only ones
left standing there

you're words begin
like a sweet Amen but then we're doing it all...
we're doin' it all again
then we're, doin' in all again
ohhh....we're, doin' it all again
ohhh...yeah we're doing it all again...again!

if I believe I am able to be astonished if I believe I’m light as air
you fall behind me untethered I belong to no one, nowhere

spring moves on
insinuates and sighs her lullaby
Track Name: Objects May Be Closer
Time, we wasted
haunts me still
wheat and cornfields
flip past like chapters in a book

we were fated
for better or worse
and I am changed
I am changed

time, I owe you
we made a deal
objects may be closer
than they first appear

with my head outside the window
I gave a blistering shout
it struck the mountains
and came barreling back
and I, I am changed
I am changed

ohhhhhhhh
I, I am changed
I, I am changed
I am changed
Track Name: The Act of Loving You
It feels like all the air has left the room
how could you know how you affect me?
you flicker like an old projector
your beauty never gets old

snowfall is the act of loving you
wind blow is the act of loving you
epic. silent. magic. through and through
simple. distant. pure.

do you see me trying to be a good person?
can you hear my every thought?
do you watch me when I’m sleeping?
the way that I do you

sun fall is the act of loving you
waves crash is the act of loving you
epic. silent. magic. through and through
simple. distant. pure.

epic. silent. magic. through and through
simple. distant. pure.

it's like flying the rooftops below
all our places seen from above
rows of seats in the empty theater
wait like seeds not yet sown

rain fall is the act of loving you
this song is the act of loving you
epic. silent. magic. through and through
simple. distant. pure.

epic. silent. magic. through and through
simple. honest. pure.

simple. honest. pure.
