Track Name: Circles
I messed up, got away from myself
Fell in love with a girl who's in love with herself
Still it comes to me as a surprise
Though I knew all along I was just wasting time

Sometimes love just ain't enough
You've got to learn when to give it all up
Keep thinking you're on the right line
Turns out you were just going in circles this time

Simple words come from simple people
Now we've both said some words at least mine had some meaning
and it came fast like a freight train a steaming
then summer was here and then soon you were leaving

Sometimes love just ain't enough
You've got to learn when to give it all up
Keep thinking you're on the right line
Turns out you were just going in circles this time

You walked out of my life like you owned it
In someways you did but in someways you stole it
And now and then I get a little jealous
thinking about your new man and how he's so much better

Sometimes love just ain't enough
You've got to learn when to give it all up
Keep thinking you're on the right line
Turns out you were just going in circles this time
Track Name: The Anatomy of a Blue Heart
Every time we say goodbye, this feeling comes over me
I can't seem to find the words, there's no point to try
You gave me peace, and you gave me hope
Well you gave me something to hold on to
Now I, I won't let go… no

So don't you feel, and don't you know
Don't you want to feel alive
'Cause every day, and every face
Well everyone just seems the same
But don't let go, no don't let go
Go and make a name for yourself

Well yesterday seems so far away
Does it feel like that to you
And all the times you've walked away
Well they mean nothing now
Just fix your eyes, just fix your eyes on what's ahead
Just fix your eyes, fix your eyes on what's ahead

So don't you feel, and don't you know
Don't you want to feel alive
'Cause every day, and every face
Well everyone just seems the same
But don't let go, no don't let go
Go and make a name for yourself
(x2)
Track Name: Blindfold Faith
Where I go, you cannot go
My feet are under me
If I don't come back
Then your heart is free

And you want more than you need
And my thoughts are incomplete
All my tears are dry
And my tongue is weak

Train take me away
My mind won't you change
It's not my choice to make
Just keep my love safe

I don't trust but I believe
That there's truth it's just hard to see
So your blindfold faith
Is it make believe

Train take me away
My mind won't you change
It's not my choice to make
Just keep my love safe

Train take me away
My mind won't you change
It's not my choice to make
Train take me away
Track Name: Underneath this Sky
I'm on an ocean
I'm sinking faster
It won't be long 'till I'm gone
Giant waves that
Tower over
Please repeat what you said

I'm on an ocean
I'm sinking faster
It won't be long 'till I'm gone
Giant waves that
Tower over
Please repeat what you said

Well this can't, be where, it ends
Well this can't, be where, it ends

Underneath this sky
And all of it's clouds
I need you here
So come down

I'm on an island
With nobody
The tide is coming in
My eyes look up and
See the same moon
As they did last night

My feet, sink in, the sand
My feet, sink in, the sand

Underneath this sky
And all of it's clouds
I need you here
So come down

I'm chasing my dreams away
Have mercy on me and grace
I'm chasing my dreams away
Have mercy on me

Underneath this sky
And all of it's clouds
Underneath this sky
And all of it's clouds
Underneath this sky
And all of it's clouds
Underneath this sky
And all of it's clouds
I need you here
So come down
