Track Name: Solstice (acoustic)
You fade out with the sun,
May the moonlight never come.
Sun-kissed skin and bones,
Has my solstice come and gone?

Compromise and ozone mix in a beach town where my friends sit,
The liquor flows as skin begins to burn,
The sun beats down on your face but I can't seem to trace the rays,
The spaces, the spaces speak to me.
And then I see you, like a wave on the horizon,
More clearly than I've ever seen.
And I know, the thoughts crossed your mind before,
On the cold nights when you can't fall asleep.
Cause we're singing,

You fade out with the sun,
May the moonlight never come.
Sun-kissed skin and bones,
Has my solstice come and gone?

When I see you, everything starts to bloom.
When I see you, I see shades of gold and feel blues.
I wanna breathe you in like I may never,
Breathe again, the air feels better when you're around.
When you're around,
It feels like summer and smells like rain,
Time freezes us in picture-frame when you're around.
When you're around.

You fade out with the sun,
May the moonlight never come.
Sun-kissed skin and bones,
Has my solstice come and gone?
Track Name: Ships (acoustic)
Another summer goes falling into spring,
A new year appears in a lightening flash-don't look back.
Piece by piece and line by line,
I try to hold it together for one more night.
I tell myself that we'll be fine but you,

Break me down just to build me up again,
Another project for your long weekend and,
You'll drive me crazy 'til I try to pretend,
I'm a ship in a bottle, a ship in a bottle.

The greens and the blues that remind me of you,
Are blurred like the lines between cartoons and news,
In the paper you read, on your TV screen,
Am I just helping you get by?

Break me down just to build me up again,
Another project for your long weekend and,
You'll drive me crazy 'til I try to pretend,
I'm a ship in a bottle, a ship in a bottle.

From the outside looking in,
There's a storm still brewing.
I guess these summer squalls come naturally to me.
So naturally,
I draw the blinds and light one up just to put me to sleep.
It's days like these,
I want know memory of where we went wrong,
And I just wanna float on.

Break me down just to build me up again,
Another project for your long weekend and,
You'll drive me crazy 'til I try to pretend,
I'm a ship in a bottle, a ship in a bottle.
Track Name: Hide (acoustic)
Why can't you stay in just one shape?
I feel like I don't know you.
It's all the same, you're all the same.
You carefully dress the truth.
You camouflage.

Why can't you take a piece of me with you?
You always fade in the times we could use you.
If you'd just stay we could forgive you,
But you disintegrate into pieces of the past.
You're pieces of the past.

I never knew you.
Is this permanent, is this the new you?
I try to hold you up but you fall through,
Oh, you do.
Something's going on,
It's time you've shown your true face,
You're so chameleon,
Some things you just can't fake.

Why can't you take a piece of me with you?
You always fade in the times we could use you.
If you'd just stay we could forgive you,
But you disintegrate into pieces of the past.
You're pieces of the past.

Between the words you weave, what am I to believe?
Every time we need you fade into the scenery,
And we're finally calling your bluff.
Your covers blown, you can't escape,
We've handled far more than we thought that we could ever take,
And we've finally had enough.
Oh, something's going on,
Some things you just can't fake,
You're so chameleon,
Your transparency holds no weight.

Why can't you take a piece of me with you?
You always fade in the times we could use you.
If you'd just stay we could forgive you,
But you disintegrate into pieces of the past.
You're pieces of the past,
Yeah, you're so chameleon.
You're so chameleon.
