tbcskeeper This album is great! You can see the same care and detail that would later make the Oh Hellos so special. The album has a nice mix of sounds that range from hints of country to electronic drones. The writing is sharp the whole way through. It's a tragedy that so few people know about this album. Favorite track: Changing All The Time.

nodding your head while inside you keep singing your tune shaking your fist when deep down you know they've got the truth all your world is pretending to be something you've never been preaching appearance is nothing and trying so hard to fit in you're tying the rope and cutting the line saying let's go and stalling for time discrepancies stand between who you are and who you should be it’s irony, irony humbling thyself and inside singing "ha, I'm the best" knowing the answers and somehow still failing the test what keeps you alive, what makes you breathe what makes you love and laugh and believe what gives you hope when it all falls apart who do you follow, and what holds your heart what makes you strong, what makes you weak what keeps you silent, what makes you speak where do you run to when you run away what lets you hold on, 'cause maybe the next day will give you the reason for what's going on will give you the courage to keep going strong what makes us bleed, what makes us die what makes us human, what makes us try

it's late at night, and the highway's empty, but my instincts say "don't slow down here" home is far away, and they don't speak my language if I ask for help, I might insult their mom it's a lonely road home call me anytime I'm alone here on the highway tonight and everything I want is several hundred miles away but it's alright far away, by a fireside you stay, in a rocking chair with your knitting on your lap you've been folding sheets and washing booster seats and waking up every two and a half hours her eyes are wide, she starts to cry but you move as fast as the wind and she's in your arms saying "don't be sad -- it's really not so bad we're never really apart from the ones we love" and separation cuts me deep but I cannot believe it keeps when all the love that's in my heart gets stronger with each mile mark people die and people leave, but I believe in this relief distance is illusion baby, don't you cry it's been days but I'm coming home tonight and everything I want is getting closer by the hour and it's all right

when the morning comes I will wake for you I will wake for you in the morning when the day is long I will work for you I will work for you in the sunshine when the evening comes I will rest in you I will rest in you in the evening when the night devours the sun I will trust in you I will trust in you when the night falls I will trust in you

been working all your life just to get it straight but you just can't seem to catch a break opportunity just never comes your way you've heard that good things come to those who wait but you're tired of leaving things to fate yeah, you're tired of waiting on your life to change been living at a break-neck train wreck edge of a knife got your heart set gonna get a better life life is too short for waiting on our lives to change themselves been putting off all the things you ever wanted to do passing time, getting by, just to make it through 'cause your dreams can't keep a roof over your head and the world keeps turning nine to five while you're struggling just to stay alive it's just a matter of time we say things will get better with some time but time is a finite resource and we only have so much for making strides and woe betide us if we die before we live
6.
you know you can't stop time, can't slow it down we try to turn it back and fight another round every day that we live is another chance to fall apart but the inevitable will find you quickly or slow whether you're ready and willing or hiding from it you know we've got no choice whatsoever 'cause we are changing all the time and nobody wants to face the fact that all of the human race is finite and fragile we do what we can with what we've got but all of us are dying every day one way or another, you're a different soul than you were yesterday or an hour ago and it won't stop 'til your breath does hard times will fall on your head like rain and you won't know if you'll ever love again but nothing lasts forever can't stop, no we can't stop changing we've got no choice whatsoever we cling to what we know the way it's always been that's the way it goes
7.
you never sleep you're always awake night after night, you are listening you never sleep you're always awake night after night, you are with me

even as I breathe out, someone else is breathing in we're all in this together time is the wedge that will drive us apart distance can't stop the beat of a heart spun like a web of connections we weave we're tied to each other nobody is alone

it never happens all at once we sink a little further every day we acclimate to all our doubts and worries but they never really go away oh, no how did we get here? we've gotta get out we've been asleep for such a long time now we're stuck that way holding ourselves captive living in a prison that we designed but the walls and bars are all inside our minds and we've gotta get out is there a heartbeat in my chest or ice, or stone, or circuitry? am I alive or am I dead, or dying my eyes are open but I'm still asleep oh no, gotta get outta here time is running out for everybody every second we live it's not enough to say you're waiting when there's so much to give we're going through the motions, wearing down the gears but we're more than machines every day we slip a little more oh, no

round and round we go dancing around the words we need to say with our fingers in our ears we're torn in two we're troubled and tired from the year we wasted wearing ourselves down 'cause the world keeps turning, world keeps turning round and the switch that shuts that clock down can't be found seems like time's forever running out but we keep on fighting heartache is inevitable but it's ending from the get-go the world revolves the same the world it doesn't blame nobody it doesn't blame nobody you can shout all that you like you can try with all your might but after all these years I'm getting tired of fighting when your heart breaks it doesn't break for good
