Track Name: Who Told You
Sitting in the front row at a forest fire
Watching all the tall trees crumble without so much as a whisper
Well it’s a simple and easy, quick solution
for when you no longer want to see what you loved before

Yeah who told you that you were extraordinary?
Yeah who told you that you left no deep gash in my soil
See now I’m telling you
that you don't know the half of what I am
And there’s a scar hidden far beneath the floor
Just round the bend

Standing by a winding road hoping to hitch a ride
I’m a long forgotten cowboy who thinks the Wild West is hard to find
Well it's a simple and easy, quick solution
I guess I’ll find somebody who loves me and won’t leave me behind

Yeah who told you that you were extraordinary?
Yeah who told you that you left no deep gash in my soil
See now I’m telling you
that you don’t know the half of what I am
And there's a scar hidden far beneath the floor
Just round the bend

Maybe I’m displaced, I’m disgraced, I’m out on my luck
But I am tearful, I'm faithful, I don't ask for much
Since when did I become someone you could cast off?

Yeah who told you that you were extraordinary?
Yeah who told you that you left no deep gash in my soil
See now I’m telling you
that you don’t know the half of what I am
And there's a scar hidden far beneath the floor
Just round the bend
Track Name: I Do
Little horse, why are you playing right there all by yourself
Didn't anyone want to spend the night with you?
Yeah I guess I do
Yeah I guess I do

China doll, why do you find it so hard to just stand tall
Didn't anyone ever tell you that you were beautiful?
Yeah I guess I will
Yeah I guess I will

'Cause when you're standing on the altar
There's the one thing that I'll swear for that is true
In that I love only you
To that I say, I do
In that I love only you
To that I say, I do

Oh my friend, dearest friend of mine
Won't you say we'll be together for the rest of time
Didn't anyone ever make you feel this way before
Yeah then I guess I just adore you
Yeah I guess I do

'Cause when you're standing on the altar
There's the one thing that I'll swear for that is true
In that I love only you
To that I say, I do
In that I love only you
To that I say, I do

Won't you stay with me forever, my baby
Won't you stay with me forever, my baby
And we can be together
Ooh we'll never ever have to leave each other

'Cause when you're standing on the altar
There's the one thing that I'll swear for that is true
In that I love only you
To that I say, I do
In that I love only you
To that I say, I do, I do, I do
Yeah I do, I do, I do
Track Name: Monster
Hold on to your gloves
Put them on my cold hands
Collect a cup of snow
and pour into my mouth

Break into a stranger's house
Curl up in their bed
Just push away the loneliness
that creeps into your head

You said we'd be okay
You said this love will not decay
You promised me you'd never let me go

It's not the sweetest wind that captures the hearts of young girls
It's a rolling pin that flattens the bottles down, down, down, down
It's not the sweetest wind that freezes the hearts of young girls
It's a crushing wave that drags you further down, down, down, down

Sail me through a frozen lake
Scrape this ship to its bones
Sing a song for the skeletons
That haunt an ex-lover's home

Break into your mother's house
And curl up in your childhood bed
Just push away the loneliness
That creeps into your head

You said we'd be okay
You said this love will not decay
You promised me you'd never let me go

It's not the sweetest wind that captures the hearts of young girls
It's a rolling pin that flattens the bottles down, down, down, down
It's not the sweetest wind that freezes the hearts of young girls
It's a crushing wave which drags you further down, down, down, down
Track Name: Long Distance
You promised me the world when we were so young
Now you sing to me a song of silence in our graves
And I am cold for your touch
We owe each other so much
For all the vows we will always break
For all the dreams we've yet to make

And we are gone, we are falling
Over the edge of a mountain into the sea
Yeah it's time that you followed me
Like a loyal friend, we can spend our dying days
Driving faster and faster and faster and faster
Til you, til you
Slow me down

Days pass in calculated battles of passing glances and words
I travel the miles between us like a flight weary bird
And I am cold for your touch
We owe each other so much
For all the love we sublimate
After we fade, resuscitate me

And we are gone, we are falling
Over the edge of a mountain into the sea
Yeah it's time that you followed me
Like a loyal friend, we can spend our dying days
Driving faster and faster and faster and faster...

Til you, til you
Slow me down
Track Name: Better
The glass on my window is black
I just swept the gray dust from my floors but I'm sure it'll come back
Before I knew you, I was stewing in my own filth
You made me anew, now I don't know how to live

You make me good for everyone
You make me good until you're gone
You make me good
I wanna be good, I wanna be good
Without you

Decay is creeping up on me slowly
I'm watching the trees break their branches and leaves and I'll never be free
Before I knew you, I was stewing in my own filth
You made me anew, now I don't know how to live

'cause you make me good for everyone
You make me good until you're gone
You make me good
I wanna be good, I wanna be good
Without you

Can I be better on my own?
How much is bitter of what you've sown?
I hope I'll grow out of you
I know I'll grow out of you

'cause you make me good for everyone
You make me good until you're gone
You make me good
I wanna be good, I wanna be good

Yeah you make me good, you make me good

You make me good
I wanna be good, I wanna be good
Without you
