Lyrics

Overdue

Written By: Scott Lowder

I’ll forfeit my disguise
That I’ve worn for so long
I think that I have been used
And I never seem to follow through
Why am I bound here
And filled with this guilt
My actions will speak loudly
I’ll let you know how I feel

Let’s take it slowly
But still I fear we are both getting older
I’m blown away by you
And every little petty thing you do
Let’s not procrastinate and end this game
That’s long, so long overdue

I’ll tell you my vices
And include every one
But sometimes when in motion
Thoughts get lost in comparison
I’ve thrown in the towel
I'm finally stuck on you
I’ve sorted through my muses
I’m no longer confused

Lost In You

Written By: Scott Lowder

This winter has lost things
With no use for replacing
Choreographed memories
My mind is slowly erasing

I’ve ripped up captured sights
Of things I’ve read and things you’d write
And everything I thought I knew
was a reflection of the person
lost in you or lost in me
or everything I lost in you

I’ll lock this night away
And chalk it up to learning
Clockwork and picture frames
Will keep these embers burning

We’ll sing this song with great repose
In unison so you can hear clearl
You ruined something beautiful
I’ll say it again so you can hear me

Let's Go

Written By: Dave Peters

Give me this little renaissance
Let’s explore this road we’ve just come upon
We’ll find out if this is really what we want
Even if it takes all night

Ignore the lightning, ignore the storm
Let’s come so our bodies stay warm
Let’s find out if this is what we’re looking for
Even if it takes all night

I can see the innocence fading out
I can tell a part of me is changing
Still I need to know
I need to know where this goes

Let’s go, the night is spread before us
I know, the stars are waiting for us
To move
To see what we will do
The moon is passing through
To make sure that everything tomorrow brings is new

Give me this little renaissance
My days of cautiousness are gone
Help me find out if this is really what we want
Even if it takes all night

Notice how the rain seeps into our skin
Everyone cherishes a chance to start again
Let’s find out if this is where it all begins
Even if it takes all night

I can see the innocence is fading out
I can tell a part of me is changing
Still I need to know
I need to see where this goes

Let’s go, the night is spread before us
I know, the stars are waiting for us
To move
To see what we will do
The moon is passing through
To make sure that everything tomorrow brings is new
