Track Name: The Summer They Turned Off My Water
The Summer they Turned off my Water

I had a dream last night I touched your sweater
And felt your body there beneath my fingers
And you smiled the way you did
The summer they turned off my water
and you invited me over
To your hotel room Beneath the quarter moon

But I am not looking back
‘Cause I’ve seen the consequence
Of gravitating to the dark side of you
And how easily you go
And how perfectly you stay away

Your silence falls always the same
I feel your hand slip from mine from a thousand miles away
And I recall your promises
I let them go a little slower as I get a little older
There’s nothing to say to keep you from going astray

But I do want you so
I want you to know
That the pictures in my mind
Replay from time to time
And that little house we built
Belongs to someone else

But I am not looking back
‘Cause I’ve seen the consequence
Of gravitating to the dark side of you
And how easily you go
And how perfectly you stay away

I had a dream last night I touched your sweater
And felt your body there beneath my fingers
And you smiled
Track Name: Perfect Little Pictures, Open Little Mouths
Perfect little pictures, open little mouths

I remember your voice
From my old answering machine
In a room that was never clean
Looping playblack

While I traced the pictures
From the back of the book you wrote
Traced them in raw charcoal
Stained my fingers black

I chased you back to the beginning
Of the year I found you alone
When I was too sick with wanting you
To see what you’d become
What have you done?

Time steals away
The things that you really meant
I’m only as pretty as my silhouette
But I’ve got some style

I’ve worked hard to forget
The way your boots would fall to the floor
The sound of your key turning in the door
But once in awhile

I chase you back to the beginning
Of the year I found you alone
When I was too sick with wanting you
To see what you’d become
What have you done?

Perfect little pictures
Open little mouths
The truth comes tumbling out
It doesn’t make a sound
Track Name: Lost & Found (Song for Ben)
Lost & Found (Song for Ben)

I drove all night to St. Paul for you
Trying to find a safe point of view
Blinded by grief, called for by the road
You stay where you are, I’m coming home
You stay where you are, I’m coming home

I rested all my hope in your sweet sigh
We lost everything but you can’t say I didn’t try
When it’s the end, you feel it in your bones
You stay where you are, I’m coming home
You stay where you are, I’m coming home

This is a song, for the lost and found
The accidental sailors who have all but drown
And I can hear your voice calling “Let’s move on”
Oh my heart, oh my heart, oh my heart, oh my heart

I drove all night through the pouring rain
At an hour too early, but an hour too late
And when it’s the end you feel it in your bones
You stay where you are, I’m coming home
You stay where you are, I’m coming home

This is a song, for the lost and found
The accidental sailors who have all but drown
And I can hear your voice calling “Let’s move on”
Oh my heart, oh my heart, oh my heart, oh my heart
