Track Name: Queens Park Saved My Life
In this lonely breeze
I sit trying to make sense of it all
And I'm moderately
Dissecting a life just past

But it doesn't make sense
At least not to me

Is nothing in life
But a series of circles?
Is nothing destined to be?

Well it doesn't make sense
At least not to me

Honey, I'd be lying
If I said this didn't hurt
Well at least
At least not enough to cry

And I take solace in that
We didn't blow out
But we went out
With a whimper and a sigh

Well goodbye my little bee
Find yourself another tree

Because if you love something
You set it free

I may not know much
But I know you've saved my life
Track Name: Twenty Nine
Why did we stop? Maybe we forgot
We were no longer young
If you ever loved me then why did you tell me
Instead of holding your tongue

Then I wouldn't die alone
I wouldn't die alone

We may now be older but not much wiser
When does the learning start?
Bust open stitches and burn all our bridges
There's no cure for a dying heart

I don't want to die alone
I don't want to die alone
Alone

My finger hovers over your number
For a brand new beginning
There ain't nothing new about this maybe ignorance is bliss
It doesn't stop me from clinging

I am going to die alone
I am going to die alone
Alone

You will never die alone
You ain't ever gonna die alone

So maybe I will just die right here on my own
Track Name: Cradle Me In Your Arms
Rest with me
I'd rather be here
In the breath of morning light
Than part from your side

Suckle me
And tend to all my fears
The reality is clear
My dear

Cradle me, Cradle me, Cradle me, Cradle me, Cradle me, Cradle me in your arms
Track Name: Thirty
Why did we stop? Maybe we forgot
We were no longer young
If you ever loved me then why did you tell me
Instead of holding your tongue

Then I wouldn't die alone

We may now be older but not much wiser
When does the learning start?
Bust open stitches and burn all our bridges
There's no cure for a dying heart

I don't want to die alone

My finger hovers over your number
For a brand new beginning
There ain't nothing new about this maybe ignorance is bliss
It doesn't stop me from clinging

I am going to die alone
You will never die alone
Track Name: You Were Everything
What do you do when someone you love
Can't even force a smile
When the slightest touch hurts your fingers
And the heart bleeds for a while

What do you do when someone you love
Can't even speak your name
And the bedroom has lost all feeling
Yet still you try in vain

You will leave
You will leave me behind

What do you do when someone you love
Just isn't there anymore
Their face is just a reflection
Of the person you once adored

You will leave
You will leave me behind
YOU WERE EVERYTHING
YOU WERE EVERYTHING

Its good to know you're home for Christmas
Are there snow flakes upon your door
Is this everything that you've wanted
Now that I am there no more
Track Name: The Initials You Carved
This misty haze escapes your lips
And draws a frame around your face
Can anything be more beautiful
And our past now a distant disgrace

This Christmas I don't want to let you go
But the world is always moving too slow

You will never be a stranger to me
Even if I am to you, you'l always know
We were miss translated, under rated
That I was never the one that you hated

Let's bury all this shit into the snow
For the world is always moving too slow

This misty haze escapes my lips
And draws a line beneath my heart
Right below your initials
The ones that you've carved

This Christmas I don't want to let you go
But the world is always moving too slow
