Track Name: Everything Is Going To Be Fine
Too late to ever try your line
I’ll wait, alternatives tried
Search though every letter in the pile
But every one addressed to me
Just isn’t your style

Why wait?
Let everything pass you by
Wondering what your last words are
When they’re already mine

I heard you’ve been living with someone new
It’s no wonder when your rent is so high
Do you still wear the coat that I left for you,
When I was in a hurry to catch that plane on time?

But everything is gonna be fine
When leaving was the last thing on your mind
Track Name: Left On Jewel
We left, caught in the eye of the storm
Making music of lovers with things that we’d known
Through the snow and the rain, through the bibles of our days,
We sing to what’s gone

That night we became almost “you and I”
From the station to Jewel, you were beaming inside
Til the light of the dawn,
We followed evening’s song there to simpler times

I swore off the city, I swore off the lights
Could’ve sworn that what wasn’t best was what I left behind
But I swore to myself
When it was time to take that right and leave that night
Track Name: Red Coat
Wore your red coat on the balcony
Little light for this time of year
If I keep answering all these questions about why I’m leaving
I’ll probably be the last one here

L train’s not running late again
It’s every other weekend now right?
Probably rather walk it anyway
I told you I love this city at night

And I was thinking over it again
Not satisfied with what I find
These months alone are better spent
In the present, not on your mind
Track Name: How Strange It Is To See
To make sense of happenstance
Just weeks before I left,
Of course I met you then

A love so radiant
With a 10-block radius to keep us in

Underneath my best beliefs, I’ll think

You ask when I’ll be back,
Allure, attack
And I answer with a drink

Tried to make it last for what we had, not what have,
For what we lack

Our bodies disagree
How strange it is to see
And I just laugh

It’s hard to tell, it’s just as well
With you
