Track Name: So Far Apart
I know it wasn’t easy
to raise me
I know it got hard and we got scarred

but if I could only see you
every morning and every night
then, that would be alright
then, I would be alright

fall is always lovely in the city, momma,
the leaves are our feet
and in the street
and in the sky

and dad, I think that we could find
a perfect place to sail
we’d float out on the waves
all through the day
just you and I

and I don’t understand why
we’re so far apart
all these towns and woods and rivers
between our hearts
if this world were a never ever
ever ending night
then, you would be my light
then, you would be my light

I was born on Thursday in a town that you weren’t from
I was born with eyes and toes
and feet and lips and love
so I can’t bear the thought that days
are quickly going by
the seasons change, the years remain
and hang out in our eyes

and I don’t know what’s not here for you
but I am
Track Name: Kinda Late
it's getting kinda late, so
let’s finish this wine
I haven’t got the time
so let’s go out
and try to find it
don’t know any other way to say
this old crowd is getting loud
and kinda drunk
so, let’s split another drink
forget about our obligations
this isn’t the way I thought it’d go – oh no
so bite your tongue
bide your time
get so clearly out of line
no, not tonight
I’ve got things I’ve gotta do
before the morning
I should know better, but
this wine has got my lips and
won’t stop talking
I should know better, but
I don’t
so up the stairs, into the street
find your heart and lose the beat
forget the plan, take on the night
and though the wine says I just might
no, not tonight
call a cab at 2am
from the hotel
can’t say what I want
though you wouldn’t tell
so I’ll sit
wait for the word
say you won’t find another girl
but I won’t go
and you can’t stay
all we can do is look away
Track Name: Mexico
every second is another chance to turn it all around.
tell me to give up and go home
or just stop talking
you smile and say, “of course, okay”,
and make it better -
make it worse -
and I’ve been trying to move on
and failing

the moment came and went
twice
just let it happen, are you ready?
and breathing badly – this is
love! breathe in
close eyes
lean forward
contact
this is terror, this is nervous
this is panic, this is ready
this is love

the leaves are falling, but not faster than me
buildings rise, autumn dies
just want to get lost in you
you push your keys to the ignition
“Mexico”, I want to say
but you’re not biting,
you bring the car to life instead of me

falling faster than these god damn leaves
just let it happen, are you ready?
and breathing badly – this is
love! breathe in
close eyes
lean forward
contact
this is winter, this is eighteen
this is panic, this is ready
this is love
Track Name: Lonely For Me
of all of the things
I just can’t wait to see -
you’re a mystery
if you’re not missing me
of all of the days
that I pushed you away
if I had something to say, no
I wouldn’t delay
but I can’t find
just a minute of my time
if I wanted you on my mind
I would let it be
so please let go of my heart
I’m sure you’d tear it apart
but it means nothing to me
so if you want to leave a good mark
a happy end from a bad start
stay lonely for me
lonely for me
only for me
stay lonely for me
of all of these nights
when I turn off the lights (I turn them off)
I’m sure you wish it weren’t true (but it’s the truth)
but I don’t dream of you (no, never you)
so hold up your questions
I’ve got only suggestions
this love was a lesson
so don’t second guess them
just please let go of my heart
I’m sure you’d tear it apart
but it means nothing to me
so if you want to leave a good mark
a happy end from a bad start
stay lonely for me
lonely for me
only for me
stay lonely for me
Track Name: Elevators
I’ve seen your photos and
I’ve read your words
but neither justify this way you
sigh
I fall asleep alone and wake up to you
I wonder if
I dreamt you up
I’ll keep my hands to myself
but you can take
this map to my apartment
I’ll keep the door unlocked, anyway,
just in case
cause all these elevators don’t take long
and you don’t live too far away
you are this feeling I can’t get out
on all these canvases
I am the glass of wine
you can’t keep full
don’t keep your hands to yourself
cause you can take
this key to my apartment
I’ll keep the door unlocked, anyway,
just in case
cause all these elevators don’t take long
and you don’t live too far away
there are no stars we can’t direct
there are no roots we can’t develop
there is nothing
we can’t swallow
or stomach
Track Name: Coming Home
the Cornwallis river is drifting by
the eagles are crying in the autumn sky
and I’m coming home
and I’m feeling old.
here is the house where I lived til I was nine
and there is the overpass
we drank there all the time
Kentville’s ahead of us and
Wolfville’s behind
my hometown is love in a straight line
and here my heart lays still and
settles my restless will
sometimes I think I’d rather be
back in the valley
here is the street of my high school sweet heart
and there’s ridge road where I crashed my dad’s car
no matter where I go, I know
I’ll never be far from
this place that holds me close when I am falling apart
and I’m coming home
and I’m feeling old
here is the school where I used to stray
and there lived a girlfriend who passed away
here’s the bus station on a sunny day
where mom and I wept when I moved away
Track Name: Separate Cities
do you hope or let it choke you
when the province lines blur
this hundredth time over
too many faces to pick mine out of a crowd
but still you do
and hold me close to you
the city lights aren’t getting brighter
day is breaking, we’re not waking up
for eight more hours
I’ll trace that jawline if
you close your eyes tight and
dream us up
some middle ground
don’t move so slow,
it’s a quick kiss,
so turn while you take it
headlights are too low and
your bit lips tell tales of my wallet
in Montreal
do you drive or pull it over?
take a last touch, right again
you go 90, I go 10
so find your lips, I’ll find my teeth
and let your love tear into me
reach for the door
stand in the street
and stare like swing dance at my feet
don’t move so slow,
it’s a quick kiss so let it go
lose it all, let it show
headlights are too low and
your bit lips are lost in mine
quick wit, make me resign
sick fit but I’m doing fine
Track Name: Darling, Darling
bury all your flowers
lay you down to sleep
throw away your apologies
close your eyes though never weep
the stars rise and the fire flies
oh, your heart like a halo
feel it in your lips and know
you weren’t much of a hero
don’t you say your words like this
you’re a shadow not a silhouette
wind just a whisper
rain, pitter patter
grey just a colour
storm drifting after
find your tongue, tell me I’m the one
counting clouds in a summer sun
such a feat, there on bended knee
draw you in, say promise me
darling (darling)
darling (darling)
darling (darling)
oh darling – darling –
bury all your flowers
