Track Name: Dear Clarity
Are you someone I know or a stranger
'cause all the comings and goings take their toll
and if I told you I loved you
would I hear from you later
'cause I'm trying hard not to grow old

But I am not looking for your sympathy
just a few friendly words would do good for me
'cause I'm never quite sure just what to believe
and what's simply what I'm imagining
Dear clarity

And the newspapers tell me
the stories that I should read
but I can not quite follow them
I'm too busy daydreaming
and never fully listening
Hello doctor name my problems
we have all got them haven't we
So tell me your secret
and I promise I won't tell
But promises are fickle things
as you know well
and I never learned distrust but from you babe

Oh but I am not looking for your sympathy
just a few friendly words would do good for me
'cause I'm never quite sure just what to believe
and what's simply what I'm imagining
Oh

And I'm imagining everything
slower each time
but I'm not ready don't tell me
don't even try
It's quieter still in my mind there's a fire
and I've come to decide
that it might just be time
oh it might just be time

Oh but I am not looking for your sympathy
just a few friendly words would do good for me
'cause I'm never quite sure just what to believe
and what's simply what I'm imagining
Are you simply what I'm imaging
Dear clarity
Track Name: Wrapped Up
I sleep on Sundays
and I'll regret it someday
but someday seems pretty far
And through my window
I watch the sun fade
and I wonder where you are

And I could lay like this for hours
I never wanted to know
You sip your coffee somewhere
wrapped up in a book and coat
I could sleep but I don't want to
And I could love but if I did would you
If I did would you

And all my friends talk
about each other
like there is nothing left to hide
But in the evenings
I start to stutter
and I let you cross my mind
But I can't help myself
I've got years to live
but I few behind me
So if your new way
has lost its luster
then just come find me

And I could lay like this for hours
I never wanted to know
You sip your coffee somewhere
wrapped up in a book and coat
I could sleep but I don't want to
And I could love but if I did would you
If I did would you
Track Name: Sleep the Night
You took my heart when you
you took his hand
and oh I never forget
And I would love to see you again
but oh you never forget
oh you never forget

Oh my love you show me no mercy
but to you I'm tied
So I pray with all that is in me
that I'd sleep the night
Oh that I'd sleep the night

Trouble comes in the form of emotion
that always lingers and holds
For once you loved me and once was enough
I can not soothe a restless soul
I can not soothe a restless soul

Oh my love you show me no mercy
but to you I'm tied
So I pray with all that is in me
that I'd sleep the night
Oh that I'd sleep the night

And I wake up every hour
for the last time
And I swear it's the last time
again and again and again
and again oh and again

Oh my love you show me no mercy
but to you I'm tied
Track Name: Old Town
I keep my troubles
in a box with no label
and stumble upon it
under the table
where I cast aside
all the worries of mine
and I rush to find
a quick place to hide
as the show passes through
and the band's all abloom
with their marching drums
and big balloons
I am one man too small
in a world that is huge
and I miss the time
when I was too

So would you take me out of this old town
'cause I could stand to lose the memories
and I swear I would never turn around
I could stand to lose the memories
I could stand to lose the memories

And I tire of waiting
my mind is impatiently
harboring all
of these thoughts I'm evading
and I wonder when I
will find myself thinking
about anything other
than things that aren't changing
but I've got a habit
and habits are hard to break
harder than anything
harder than anything

So would you take me out of this old town
'cause I could stand to lose the memories
and I swear I would never turn around
I could stand to lose the memories
I could stand to lose the memories
