Track Name: Returning
driving out for the last time
put it behind you
we watch the soldiers from our living rooms
coming home again

it takes you longer to notice
once they tell you it's over

and we're all in the same boat, still and sinking
and the past is that distant coast, receding

and he choked on his words as we stood in the doorway
tell me why i don't recognize your face these days

it takes you longer to notice
once they tell you it's over

today i felt so strange
standing in these shoes
standing in the rain
calling out your name
it always feels so strange
coming back here

i miss you in the morning light
i miss you on the way
Track Name: Distance
Sunday in the station
And I'm looking down the tracks
You can come back now
Everybody's in the room tonight
You're still far away

No restless city streets
All these wild, lonely dreams
I won't follow them
Somewhere at the bottom of the deepest well
I realize I've lost it

Anyway that you can (2x)

Empty airport runways
All sand beneath my feet
I can't find you here
And all the old familiar places
Now they only feel so strange

Far across the water
On some other distant beach
Somewhere out of reach
I watch the lights go down
Along the coast line
The disappearing glow...

Anyway that you can (2x)

No returning, january sun
How can we even go on?
Track Name: Eyes Before the Sun
words are just words
do they mean that much to you?
when you said what you said
and you lied the whole way through?

after all the time is gone
our eyes before the sun
would you stay, one more day
in this place?

time after time
i have leant myself away
in those things that i said
didn't mean that much to me

our heads filled with bad ideas
our eyes before the sun
i can't feel you anymore
i don't know what you've become
Track Name: The Runaway (Live from Converse Rubber Tracks)
Your feelings, what they wanted you to be
You know its what they wanted you to see
Your feelings, what they wanted you to be
You’ll take it if you lose your way

All you ever wanted was to feel like you
Were something else
And all you ever wanted was to feel like you
Were something else
So cut ‘em down, hang ‘em on the walls
Lie where we first lay
This emptiness inside won’t go away

All you ever wanted was to feel like you
Were something else
And all you ever wanted was to feel like you
Were something else
So cut ‘em down, hang ‘em on the walls
Lie where we first lay
This emptiness inside won’t go away

We’ve been moving
We’ve been moving
We’ve been moving
On

Don’t try to save me
Don’t try to save my soul
