Track Name: A House Built Just For Me
Long hours spent sleeping in the shade
Of my favorite oak tree
not too sure if I really awoke
but I stood up and climbed up in the branches

There I found a house built just for me
Every dimension fit perfectly
To my hand and to my bones
I acquainted myself and settled in

Waste away the days most pleasantly
High in the trees where no one can ever find me
Everything was just as it should be
Each tiny box especially made for one thing

As this thought drifted out my door
I heard a noise and knew at once you had found me
Just as I had always dreamed
Dark was your hair and softly the rains starts falling
Track Name: Special Kind (of Lonely)
How can I bleed if I'm already drained
Why should I cry if it's going to rain
Walking on eggshells seeing no end
Keep it all steady or the walls could fall in

It's a special kind of lonely

Nobody sleeps like the ill informed
The pillowed silence behind the closed door
Sucking on the poison and I'm sorry again
Somehow you are strong and a constant victim

It's a special kind of lonely
I'm sure you don't think about me
When I'm not around

Try to find a way to only speak truth
When you no longer care you've got nothing to lose
Walking on eggshells and seeing no end
Keep it all steady or the walls could fall in

It's a special kind of lonely
I'm sure you don't think about me
Track Name: Apart and Again
Seems so long ago
We were explorers of the first fallen snow

Remember we made a map
Packed for the woods, never coming back
Oh to dream like that

Somehow we slipped apart
Different schools, brand new starts
Things will fall apart

Distance grew like a weed
Up toward the sun till we couldn't see

How did we get so far
Apart from where we started off
I don't know where you are

I know the truth is in
The tiniest seeds opening
Watch it start again
