Track Name: The Sand
Lets pretend for tonight that you are no ones daughter and I am no one.

And everything that means something to me is forgotten when you speak.

These words taste so sweet on my tongue tonight.

Black and bitter in the morning light.

If the hills could speak, they'd cry the whole night long.

20 miles of barbed wire, between two hearts that don't know what they want.

Sneak between the war machines and evergreens.

Ill meet you halfway.

Don't want to bottle the sea. Just want to go for a swim.

Don't want to draw a map. Just want to dive right in.
Track Name: The Sea
If I wrote you a letter with all the things that I can't say, would it be too real?

Would you blush and smile? Or would you cry. If you only knew the tears behind these eyes.

You wouldn't kiss me late at night. You wouldn't sing me to sleep. You wouldn't ask me to stay or hold my hand too tightly.

Does the ocean love the mountain when it crumbles into sand on the beach

Or does it drift away. To some other shore. Always keeping the lover wanting more.

You shouldn't kiss me late at night. You shouldn't sing me to sleep. You shouldn't ask me to stay or hold my hand too tightly.

Because i am the sand and you are the sea and that's beautiful enough for me.
