Track Name: I Hope I Never Fall In Love Again
I hope I never fall in love again
It just hurts too much and always ends
I don’t believe in what that Shakespeare penned
I hope I never fall in love again

I think we both know what is really true
I couldn’t even if I wanted to
Oh because I’m still in love with you
Oh because I’m still in love with you

I hope I never fall in love again
You know it’s you and it has always been
Feels like my heart will never ever mend
I hope I never fall in love again

I’m trying hard but I just can’t pretend
I never want to fall in love again
Maybe I will but I just don’t know when
And it’s terrifying me no end

What I really need is something real
A shroud to cover you so I can heal
So I can risk it and not give a damn
Then I’ll rush in just like the fool I am

I hope I never fall in love again
You know it’s you and it has always been
Feels like my heart will never ever mend
I hope I never fall in love again

Now I’m living in a fantasy
That you’ll come find me on that balcony
We’ll run away and leave it all behind
But I’m running out of time
I’m running out of time

Oh I’m running out of time
I gotta let you go
And stop living in your shadow

I’m trying hard but I just can’t pretend
I never want to fall in love again
I wanna risk it and not give a damn
Then I’ll rush in just like the fool I am
Track Name: Brighter Blue
You know that feeling
Reaching in the dark
Lonely and cold, not even a spark
The hours in between are all tinted and hued
One’s hope and one’s doubt
And one doesn’t have a clue

It’s hard to be brave with the wind in your face
Stormy clouds raging at you
The sun isn’t risen but it’s coming soon
And the sky is a brighter blue

Someone in the mirror I don’t recognize
Screaming to get out from the inside
The answers are seeds
They were thrown at our feet
But they grow more questions
They’re growing like weeds

It’s hard to have faith when there’s nothing to hold
And the stories you told don’t come true
Still underground but the light’s seeping through
And the walls turn a brighter blue

I made a fool, a fool of myself
Better than anyone else
You’re the thread that I pull
And the whole thing unravels
So lower it down in the well
And I’ll climb out
I’ll climb out

It’s hard to be brave with the wind in your face
Stormy clouds raging at you
The sun isn’t risen but it’s coming soon
And the sky is a brighter blue
The weight is still heavy but I’ll carry it through
And I am a brighter shade of blue
Track Name: Ghost
Those old reels start creaking in the back of my mind
Shaky confessions on the line
LA traffic never looked so good
Maybe I misunderstood

You took my hand, I couldn’t look you in the eye
Just trying to see you through the smoke
I believed it could be real this time
Almost forgot you’re a ghost

I’m alive and breathing
My heart’s still beating
I don’t wanna be dreaming
Cuz I’m alive and breathing

Last time I saw you, the moon looked the same
Your hands so cool on my skin
Then it was waxing but now it wanes
Did that really happen?

This road’s so dark it’s got me hopin for thieves
Singing my way up the coast
I’m a thought, I’m a lark
Fill the space in between
Feels like I’m just a ghost

I’m alive and breathing
My heart’s still beating
I don’t wanna be dreaming
Cuz I’m alive and breathing

You’re unfinished business
Unanswered letter
Love unrequited
Returned to sender
What the hell am I waiting here for?

I’m alive and breathing
My heart’s still beating
I don’t wanna be dreaming
Cuz I’m alive and breathing
My heart’s still beating
I don’t wanna be dreaming
Cuz I’m alive and breathing
Track Name: That Siren, Hope
Do you know where we’re going?
I’ve been sailing for days
Tossing boulders in that rowdy sea
Longing for your gaze

Like a minefield full of fireflies
Drawing me in when I should flee
Are you ever truly satisfied?
Would you really want to be?

Thought that shine was a lighthouse
But it was That Siren, Hope
She sang me to sleep
Got me to dream
Turns out her song was just a joke

Fell to the ground and found our crowns in the dark
We hid in plain view
We told secrets everyone could hear
You’re the siren and the muse

If you get closer see her hands are gnarled
From centuries of spinning lace
Came to the cliffs all in ecstasy
And left with salt upon my face

Thought that shine was a lighthouse
But it was That Siren, Hope
She sang me to sleep
Got me to dream
Turns out her song was just a joke

I’m just a question who wants to be the answer
A weary sailor who cannot read the stars
You keep singing and I’ll be the dancer

Thought that shine was a lighthouse
But it was That Siren, Hope
She sang me to sleep
Got me to dream
Turns out her song was just a joke
Track Name: If I Can't Have What I Want
My heart is broken
It doesn’t work anymore
I feel nothing
Where I used to love before

I can’t open up
standing on the edge of fear
I know I have to jump
but I’m still standing here

If I can’t have what I want
If I can’t have what I want
Then I’ll want nothing at all
It’s all that I can do
Because I can’t have you

I’m a liar
I smile when we speak
But it’s crumbling
The ground beneath my feet

I can feel it
Your heart beating my chest
I forgive you
Oh But how can I forget?

If I can’t have what I want
If I can’t have what I want
Then I’ll want nothing at all
It’s all that I can do
Because I can’t have you
‘Cause I can’t have you

If I can’t have what I want
If I can’t have what I want
Then I’ll want what I can’t have
It’s all that I can do
If I can’t have what I want
If I can’t have what I want
Then I’ll want nothing at all
It’s all that I can do
Because I can’t have you
No I can’t have you
‘Cause I can’t have you
Track Name: Misplaced Hope
This torch I've been holding has all but burned out
The light has been swallowed by the shadow of doubt
Under ash it’s still hot, It melted my soles
Now my shoes are stuck (t)here and my feet have gone cold

Stones and sinkholes litter uncharted land
Thought it could be worth it for gold we had panned
Guess this was a game we played just for fun
Love was a kingdom that couldn't be won

Oh my love
Don’t be afraid
All hope is not lost
It’s just been misplaced

I brought you a hive with words honey sweet
You hear the buzz and feel the sting of the bees
You Drew my heart All broken lines
Gave it back to me covered in vines

Oh my love
Don’t be afraid
All hope is not lost
It’s just been misplaced
Oh my love
Don’t be afraid
All hope is not lost
It’s just been misplaced

You don't like sad endings
So tell me how do you cope? 
The director who fires the actors
When it plays out just like you wrote

The horizon is veiled and I can’t hardly see
I didn't know which signs to believe
The city looks clear now through the glass of the cab
This film has no foley yet
But the score isn’t bad

Oh my love
Don’t be afraid
All hope is not lost
It’s just been misplaced
Oh my love
Don’t be afraid
All hope is not lost
It’s just been misplaced
