Track Name: Seven
Im headin, way out where
All I need is seven to get me there

I heard explosions in the distance carry with them
All the colors now that I’ve begun to miss
And even rolling stones can gather all the moss they need
When summer shrugs you off again like this
Seven years you wrapped me up in waters pure and blue
Seven years I stood safe in emerald spaces,
this much I owe to you

To my hopes , Past my fears
To my dreams, Through these years
Im headin, way out where, All I need is seven to get me there

I leave the conifers for concrete
I leave the bays for byways and highways
I leave my innocence and those that used to shine on me
Those that set my everything ablaze
Seven years you wrapped me up in waters pure and blue
Seven years I stood safe in emerald spaces,
this much I owe to you

To my hopes , Past my fears
To my dreams, Through these years
Im headin, way out where, All I need is seven to get me there

When the clouds come in today
Roll the windows down and run
Find illusion in the grey
Everything will lead you

To your hopes, Past your fears
To your dreams, Through the years
We’re headin, way out where, All we need is seven
To my hopes , Past my fears
To my dreams, Through these years
Im headin, way out where, All I need is seven to get me there

Seven years you wrapped me up in waters pure and blue
Seven years I stood safe in emerald spaces,
this much I owe to you
Track Name: Wreckin' Ball
Sometimes I don’t like the way you hold me
Sometimes I don’t hear you when you call
When the wire and the wood swing around like a wreckin’ ball
Hit me in the side, step back, and you watch me crumble
Take me to the top, let go, and you watch me tumble
I can’t find no peace at all
When the rhythm and the breath come through like a wreckin’ ball

Stone by stone, Im gonna be whole again
I’m gonna search my soul again, I’m gonna set it on fire
All I had is gonna be mine again
I’m gonna walk that line again, until the line gets tired
I got a heart like a brick wall, and a love like a wreckin’ ball

When I hold this box you touch me in a whisper
Somewhere between wishes and commands
I build the pleasure and the pain back up with my own two hands
Take me down to hell, let me get a good look at damnation
Build me up to heaven on a brand new glass foundation
I can’t find no peace at all
When the rhythm and the breath come through like a wreckin’ ball

Stone by stone, Im gonna be whole again
I’m gonna search my soul again, I’m gonna set it on fire
All I had is gonna be mine again
I’m gonna walk that line again, until the line gets tired
I got a heart like a brick wall, and a love like a wreckin’ ball

Tonight, I rise and fall
Always, I feel it all
I got a price to pay, I’m gonna pave the way

Stone by stone, Im gonna be whole again
I’m gonna search my soul again, I’m gonna set it on fire
All I had is gonna be mine again
I’m gonna walk that line again, until the line gets tired
I got a heart like a brick wall
I got a heart like a brick wall
I got a heart like a brick wall
and a love like a wreckin’ ball
Track Name: Golden Hour
Moments into movie scenes, words are blown to smithereens
And everything’s exactly as it does not seem
Sight is spinnin’ on a reel, leaves are turned to precious steel
And everything’s exactly as it does not feel

Light me up, light me up, Slow me down
Steal a ray, steal a ray, Make me glow like tinseltown
And everything came into frame
When I saw you at golden hour, everything changed

Ain’t no use in countin days, Ain’t seen you since you went away
Was barely time to blink and you were gone, gone, gone
So I try, to put you out of my mind
And think about what I find, easier to miss
Oh, anything but this

Light me up, light me up, Slow me down
Steal a ray, steal a ray, Make me glow like tinseltown
And everything came into frame
When I saw you at golden hour, everything changed

And I’ll wish on stars in the sidewalk tonight
And maybe, hollywood just might
Bring you back, in love-struck constellations

And everything came into frame
When I saw you at golden hour, everything changed
Oh, everything changed
Oh, everything changed
Oh, everything changed
Track Name: Santa Elena
Been 17 Months and I still sleep with the lights on
I'll never go back to the place where you left me to die
It's not the darkness that scares me, just its resemblane
Why do I try?
Why do I try?

Sometimes I put on my shoes and walk to the canyon
Out there all the wishes I've made just hang in the sky
Its nice to have one place of mine, where I can see bottom
Why do I try?
Why do I try?

Fight to the dawn, turn the radio on
And put it all out of my mind again
I will be whole, I'll take back what you stole

I used to sit here and wonder if I'd be regretful
But every day since, my face has stayed withered and dry
My hands now are clean, and my heart is washed in conviction
Why do I cry?
Why do I cry?

Fight to the dawn, turn the radio on
And put it all out of my mind again
I will be whole, I'll take back what you stole

The desert whispers, and tells me that they'll never find
you
And I'll never give them the peace that you told them goodbye
Its useless to think that I'll ever stop hearing your echo
Why do I try?
