Track Name: The Loss of Close & Quiet
I bought this sweater used, but
It's nice of you to notice
The patterns that wrap around the side
I wonder why
It's so hard to keep from stalling
When it's a part of us now
A distance once not thought of
The newfound cause of
Small talk
When whispers turn into goodbyes
We're just falling into something
Taken apart by the thought of upkeep
In memories which are no longer here
We're just tumbling into something
Made from parts we'd thought we'd not be
In memories we'll never speak of again
If we don't say them
Did they actually happen?
The world was once condensed to
Our murmurs which helped us get through
The fragments and noises now our lives
When passing time
Was once a game to be played
A fill in for a blank
The loss of close and quiet
The fear of becoming a silent
Friend
We're just falling into something
Taken apart by the thought of upkeep
In memories which are no longer real
We're just tumbling into something
Made from parts we'd thought we'd not be
In memories we'll never speak of again
If we don't say them then how can they mend?
We're just falling into something
Taken apart by the thought of upkeep
In memories which are no longer here
If we don't think of them they'll disappear
The world was smaller once
That too met its end
A person's nothing without
Thoughtful conversation
Track Name: A Time to Keep Silence
I found it a bit strange
That her on the front page
Would cause me to move
And wake up from sleep
Cause she been out there
And while I was well aware
I left her alone
I lived life idly
The stalling of memories
Now her in front of me
Left pause to assume
It had all been a dream
The time that was in between
Her and my company
Fell hard to the truth:
I found her in everything
My head and her shoulder meet
The tears from her crying
And now me too
And now me leaving
From rain to my bedroom
To speak when spoken to
To not talk at all
To think of nothing
When led back to this end
A place where she is again
And I can't be removed
I keep on falling
There was never a truth to it
I'll swear by her permanence
Within every look
To finally feel free
Track Name: On the Edge of the Gardens
If you want me to
Erase the memories
Of me and you running
Into the ivory
Salads at the park
The week that school starts
Till unknown
Lost to the dark
Casting shadows on
The edge of the gardens
Now in the greenhouse
Where your picture was taken
It's like we weren't here
As if this never happened
The streams of sun seen
Not again
A twist reversal of me
Breaking my silence
To wonder now if I'd
Kept the opposite
It leaves me alone
By myself, so quiet
Waiting for nothing next
If you want me to
Erase the memories
Of which my guilt helps to
Replay them constantly
I'll live reminded of
What once was fantasy
When beauty caves in and falls
Cause sorry won't say it all
