Track Name: Good Morning
Holding your hand
Driving my car
The house is not that far
And time stood still

Heading to my place
Traffic's moving slow
As our heartbeats race
And time stood still

When you left my bed
To get to work by 8am
I smelled your coffee breath
And breathed you in
When your shift is finally through
I'll be coming home to you
With D-grade films and Chinese food

Hoping that you stay
Knowing time will tell
I think of you all day
And time stood still

Heading to my place
Traffic's moving slow
As our heartbeats race
And time stood still
Track Name: I Was A Tourist
As I stood alone
In the crowded streets of Rome
My judgement clouds with cigarette smoke

I really thought that I had
A lot to give
I guess what I had just wasn't enough

I wasn't to stay inside
Your heart forever
I was but a tourist
Spill my heart on these pages at the Pantheon
But do you mind?

There's no way that I can ever return
To a place haunted by those memories

Throw on a layer of paint to mask the wound
Like the frescos at Raphael's Tomb

Please don't leave Genevieve
I Love You
Track Name: Drag
Ignore the tickle in your throat
That screams for you to speak
To beg
To be weak

Ignore the sensory nerves
Telling your legs to run to her place
Ignore them
But you're already there

Not quite living not quite dead
Just pull the smoke
From that cigarette
And let the cancer kill her taste
That stains your lips

It took all that I had
To leave the best last week
And get out of my head

Four walls and a door
Just don't make a home
When you're alone

Your bottom drawer in the dresser
Just stays empty
Cobweb ridden
Please come home and come home quickly
I promise I'll get better
Track Name: Widow
I'm a widow I said because you're dead to me
I take a pill so strong just to fall asleep
To the men upstate taking you home
That won't call you back on the telephone

And I still see your ghost
Cold and Alone

I'm a widow I said because you're dead to me
I've got a love so strong she haunts my sleep
There's a man upstate taking you home
I get dumb drunk and call you on the telephone
I say we need to talk, take a walk and try
I want to work things out but I don't know why

And I still see your ghost
Cold and Alone
