Track Name: Above
All that I thought was holdin' me up
I found reversed yeah it was I above
Well I stood over it, and over it I was
What I have forever been I have finally become

All that I thought was holdin' me up
I found reversed yeah it was I above
Well over it I stood, and over it I was
What I have forever been I have finally become
Track Name: From Afar
I saw you from afar
And I told myself I needn’t look any further
When I saw you from afar
I knew this distance had no purpose

I never I fall easy
But when I do I fall hard
And it’s not worth believing
That I can see who you are

But when I saw you from afar
It was as if I needn’t look any further
When I saw you from afar
I knew any turn I’d take would be closer

I never I fall easy
But I always fall hard
What I don’t know won’t hurt me
But what’s a heart without harm?

But would you be worth it?
Could we predict this in time?
Or are we destined to be distant
Should we not cross the line?

'Cause I've spent all of my life learning to love
Is to find without looking
And we were being nothing
Apart from who we are
When I saw you from afar
Afar
Afar
Afar
When I saw you from afar
Track Name: Gravity Fall
Some say it seems atmospheric
Always orbit never nearing
Some say it seems atmospheric
Undermining movement’s merit

But with you
I will freely fall
With you
Infinities feel small
And our love
Leaves no room for stars
As we constellate our hearts

We were merely atmospheric
Fighting orbit, force, and fission
We were merely atmospheric
Outlasting light years, lords, and limits

With you
Fate never feels too far
I’m with you
Here or worlds apart

As our love
Eclipses all
Yeah our love
Will see gravity fall
Track Name: On Words
It’s funny how a picture takes you back
And confronts you with a feeling
Like an ancient artifact
You find glued to your ceiling

And it all comes back in a flash
And it all comes back in a flash
And it all comes back in a flash

I believe again, I am me again
I’m with you again, how did this ever end?
We are young again, things are new
My heart beats again, I’m with you, I’m with you

I began to nod and tried to smile
The day I let you go
I close my eyes and recall how I
Held my breath, and never let you know
Hold your breath, you never know

It’s funny how your picture takes me back
As it falls out of my wallet
What we had it was hard
Time is fast, distance is far

I clenched my fist and I bit my tongue
To fight back the hell inside
It’s a heavy, heavy feeling when there’s nothing left
But heavier to know that it’s right

Then it all comes back in a flash
And it all comes back in a flash
Yeah it all comes back in a flash

I believe again, I am me again
I’m with you again, how did this ever end?
We are young again, things are new
My heart beats again, I’m with you, I’m with you

I don’t want to die choking on words
I want to say them, mean it, feel them hurt
I want to live to know what they’re worth,
And I want to be worth it

I don’t want to want life back
Track Name: Orbit (feat. Amelia Hazen)
In the beginning you were waiting for forever
Cause that’s what love is in his words and in his letters
You find the time
You find the time

Yeah I’m back in the beginning unsure I ever started
With the pieces of my heart each playing their part in
Trying to rewind to when I had the time
I had the time
I had the time

I don’t know what I’m trying to prove by improving
Don’t know where I’m trying to get to but I’m moving
Yeah I’ve found in my prayers lay my prisons
I don’t know what love is, only that we’re in it

You were looking for the lights on the tracks
Of the upcoming train, for the echoes of his laugh
While I stood still, then took a couple steps back
To let myself be followed by the darkness and the facts

Cause you were an artist when his hands were in your hair
And I danced daftly with the demons daring me not to care
But I’ve found in our prisons lay our prayers
And I was praying to be there for you

I keep letting my heart make my heads decisions
Keep closing my eyes hoping for precision
Wondering why with these lids lay these visions
I don’t know what love is, only that we’re in it

We don’t know what it is we’re keeping it for
The weight of the memories, the wanting to be sure
(When) we can’t say what it is, only when it’s missing
We don’t know what love is, only that we’re in it

(And) this is how her forever ended
With a shrugging of her shoulders and a longing to pretend it wasn’t
In her head, in her head
In her head, in her head
In her head, in her head
In her head, in her head
In her head
In her head
Track Name: Saudade
How lucky I am to have something that makes leaving so hard
Proving distance is a concept measured by memories rather than cars
Cause when you remember the moments it’s about how close it feels, not how far

Ive seen places Ive seen people, Ive seen streets and Ive seen steeples
Ive seen nothing that I’m willing to call my own
'Cause it’s not always where you’re from
But where you become yourself
That you call home

How lucky I am to have something that makes leaving so hard
Proving distance is a concept measured by memories rather than cars
Cause when you remember the moments it’s about how close it feels, not how far

So we’ve emptied our drawers for the last time
We’re locking our doors and leaving keys behind
But I can’t pack the imagery in a plastic frame
I can’t find the words for how I’m feeling, but I feel that’s a good thing

How lucky I am to have something that makes leaving so hard
Proving distance is a concept measured by memories rather than cars
Cause when you remember the moments it’s about how close it feels, not how far
Yeah when you remember the moments it’s about how close it feels no matter
where you are
Cause it’s not always where we go
But where we become ourselves
That we call home

We call home, call home, call home
Call home, call home, call home
Call home, call home, call home
