Lyrics

And It Sounded Like A Trainwreck...

Written By: Sam White

And it sounded like a train wreck.

Verse 1:
Futures always seem to stray
Like abandoned promises left to die on layaway
But my new armor is on the way
Until then, I spend my time keeping everyone at bay.

Bridge:
I’ll dig your grave
Just one more thing
Just put your bed in park and lay my voice down on your skin.

Chorus:
And it sounded like a train wreck
When our futures hit the road
The more people that surround me
The more I feel alone.
God said he’d free me of my sins
Just got to peel off this disguise.

Verse 2:
I got a dub in Tallahassee
Rest assured we’ll set that town ablaze.
But what happens when your sun sets in New York City?
Well, I’m getting mine, right here.

Repeat bridge
Repeat chorus

I miss you, I miss the way you feel
I miss all the things that only you possess.
We try to close the distance, but it only makes it stretch
I’m so reckless; just tell me we’ll make it.

The Smell Of Progress

Written By: Sam White

Verse 1:
Another crash landing in a destination unknown
Where are we now and how do we get home?
This task looks demanding, but I'm ready
There's no time to be scared, I need you to trust me.
(it's so precise the way it knives me every time I'm vulnerable)

Bridge:
Please be honest, doesn't this feel nice?
Please be honest, please be honest
because, honestly, we're making progress.
so...

Chorus:
Hold on to whatever keeps you up at night.
Hold on because it's the best fuel for your fire.
So hold on to me, girl, whenever you desire.
Hold on because we're making progress.

Verse 2:
Another crash landing, it's no one's fault but my own.
Where are we going and how do we get there?
The language of a woman's love is so complex that we get lost in translation
and, then, asked to shoot straight amidst constant gyration.
(with this device, I'll improvise and roll the dice and tell our stories)
I hope they don't ignore me.

Repeat Bridge:
Repeat Chorus:

Verse 3:
I don't know much of anything
but I'm for certain this is real.
I was just thinking about the wedding and the children
and how we're going to pay the bills.
We've got to be the greatest team in history
to fight back the way we did.
I'd be devastated if we lost everything
because we've come so far...
Repeat Chorus:

Aphelion

Written By: Sam White

Verse 1:
Nothing’s never what it seems
Static in my wildest dreams
Makes my nightmares bleed.
Radios broadcast the news
Of atom bombs and sophomore blues.
I think we need a new light.

Chorus:
I can feel it coming
We’ll never taste the sunshine,
We’ll never taste the sunshine again.
Oh, and I can see it coming
From a mile away, miles away.

Verse 2:
Life’s too short to chew the fat
So give it away and give it back.
And all my friends are shadows.
We’re too busy to notice
The ghost that floats above us
Singing songs we’ve yet to write.

Repeat chorus:

Verse 3:
You know I love you
You know I do.
We’re of a dying breed.
So
Chase your dreams and don’t look back.
You’re my train, don’t get off track.
I swear I know where we are.

Repeat chorus:
I can hold you if I want to
If you need me

Repeat chorus:
