Track Name: Buying You
Gone away, you're gone for days
Smothered by the human race
Left alone among the graves
When you overturned your heart in summer's rays

Who you calling a liar?
Who you calling a fool?
When it comes to the wire
There's no buying you

There's no Christmas gifts around the tree
No comfort in a dime, indeed
No diamond rings, or pearls, or trips for two
There is nothing gained unless for free
No golden chains and, honestly
No buying, there's no buying you

Gone away, you're gone for days
Smothered by the lover's rage
Left alone among the grace
When you overthrew my heart in summer's reign

Who you calling a liar?
Who you calling a fool?
When you're stuck in the mire
There's no buying

No Christmas gifts around the tree
No comfort in a dime, indeed
No diamond rings, or pearls, or trips for two
There is nothing gained unless for free
No golden chains and, honestly
No buying, there's no buying you

Who you calling a liar?
Who you calling a fool?
When you're down in the dire
There's no crying blues
There's no buying you

There's no Christmas gifts around the tree
No comfort in a dime, indeed
No diamond rings, or pearls, or trips will do
There is nothing gained unless for free
No golden chains and, honestly
No buying, there's no buying you
There's no trying to
Track Name: Eloquent
I wish I was more eloquent
When encouragement is what you need
And I wish that I did not dissent
When you speak the painful truth to me

I wish that I could carry you
Through the darkness of the night
And I wish that I could promise you
That your heart is gonna be alright

Keep me in your dreams
And I'll see you on the rise
I'll see you when we're rising
I know how it seems
But I'll see you on the rise
I see us on the rising

I wish that I was man enough
To be needed by you
And I wish that I deserved your love
But that's me just feeling kind of blue

Keep me in your dreams
And I'll see you on the rise
I'll see you when we're rising
I know how it seems
But I'll see you on the rise
I see us on the rising

I wish I was more eloquent
When you need a pick-me-up or two
I wish I could shut my goddamn mouth
When I'm speaking down to you
Track Name: Volcano
Been a gold mine, I've been the wrong time
Been a sweetheart, I've been that cold lie
Been the sorrow, felt so hollow
And I wonder about tomorrow

I don't need to know where we're gonna go
I just wait until you follow
I don't wanna be without you with me
So I'll wait until you follow

Seen you sunrise, I've seen you waterfall
Seen you dense fog, I've seen you volcano
And I've seen you shooting star
Across the canvas of the night in fire and glory
So I don't want to seen you wallow

I don't need to know where we're gonna go
I just wait until you follow
I don't wanna be without you with me
So I'll wait until you follow

Seeing you be less than you is more than I can bear
Feeling what you're feeling is the least that I can do
So I'll wait for you my dear

I don't need to know where we're gonna go
I just wait until you follow
I don't wanna be without you with me
So I'll wait until you follow

I've seen you volcano
Seen you sunrise, I've seen you waterfall
I've been so hollow
Been your gold mine, I've been your downfall
Track Name: Running For Cover
Some days I'm better off
Don't wanna talk about it
Some days I wonder if you understand
Some days I turn away
Some I try to walk around it
Some days I'm thanking you for holding my hand

But I won't stop loving you
Even if you want me to
I won't stop
Won't leave you on your own
I won't stop loving you
Even if you want me to

I know you've been mulling it over
You know I'm not folding my hand
I've seen you run for cover
But don't think I don't want to end up your man

Some days I fade away
Don't mean to be a loner
Some days I wonder how much you can withstand
Some days I turn away
I can't face the pain I put on my lover
Some days I hold you in the palm of my hand

I know you've been mulling it over
You know I'm not folding my hand
I've seen you run for cover
But don't think I don't want to end up your man

You seem to run around me
I've seen you running for cover
You underestimate me
Somehow it's already over
Track Name: Seven Years
Seven years, I think you're over it
Seven months now I could tell
Seven days here, I been drinking
I always run back to the well

If you go, you weren't the one for me
If you stay, it's just as well
It could be fear of starting over
Keeps us clinging to each other
If I'm honest with myself

Double down on us, I do suppose
Doublespeak here for a spell
Doubled over 'round the porcelain
I always woke looking like hell

If you go, you weren't the one for me
If you stay, it's just as well
It could be fear of starting over
Keeps us clinging to each other
If I'm honest with myself

Seven years, I think you're over it
Seven months now I could tell
Seven days here I've been wondering
Is it time to toll the knell?
Track Name: Green River Gone
When we watched as the wreckage climbed further ablaze
I couldn't yell, I was caught in a daze
But it's always the worst things that best hold our gaze
You'd say, "Breathe. Breathe in."

Now they watch as my fingers grip onto the rail
I couldn't tell, I couldn't explain
And they stare more as I pitch myself over the edge
"Breathe. Breathe in."

Green river
Green, green river gone

When I watched as you turned and walked out in the rain
I wouldn't yell, I wouldn't yell, I yelled anyway
And though you never looked back, I can still hear you say
"Breathe. Breathe in."

Green river
Green, green river gone

Now I watch that cold water slip over the veil
I wouldn't tell, I wouldn't tell, take it to the grave
And I'll loose my tongue here as I choke your refrain
To breathe. Breathe in

Breathe river
Green, green river gone
Green river
Green, green river gone
