Track Name: Dry Land
I'll take the land and you take the sea
I can swim out to you, but you won't swim back to me
Maybe this space is space that we need
Or maybe you're drowning and you need help desperately

Well I think dry land is good enough for me

I'll take the land and you can take the sea
I will follow in the dark as your waves crash into me
Maybe this chase is the chasing that you need
Or maybe you're running 'cuz you don't know how to leave

Well I think dry land is good enough for me
I know the water's great, but it lacks the same consistency
I will walk the battered shore while you search for "something more"
In the changing tides I'll wait with a compromise you'll hate
Where the mountains meet the waves

How long will you make me wait
With the mess that you create
Where the mountains meet the waves
Track Name: Rest
There's a fire that burns deep inside of my brain
And I wish I could learn to quench the unrelenting flames

There's a time I could say that I slept through the night so peacefully
But gone are these days and I hope they return eventually

I have time to find
The peace that was in my mind
I have many days
To change all my broken ways
I have love to show
With time it will only grow
With what I have left
I swear that I will find rest.

There's a storm overhead and it swept me away into the sea
Now it's taken just a little more time for the ground to form beneath my feet

And I've got dirt beneath my fingernails from holding on

I have time to find
The peace that was in my mind
I have many days
To change all my broken ways
I have love to show
With time it will only grow
With what I have left
I swear that I will find rest.

I have time to find
The peace that was in my mind
I have many days
No I won't keep my broken ways
I have love to show
With time it will only grow
With what I have left
I swear that I will find rest.
Track Name: Not Coming Down
I don't know what to say
This I knew would come up one day
And maybe I will find a way to make it okay

I don't know how to say these things I hide
They'll come out one day
And maybe God will find a way to make me okay

I fear the crowd that's gathering
All of these people wan my head
And all you want is for me to come down quietly

I'm not ready, I'm not ready
I'm not coming down
All my lies and all my mistakes are coming out
I'm not coming down

How long can I stay?
The air is thin, but up here I feel safe
How long will these branches hold my weight before they break?

I'm not ready, I'm not ready
I'm not coming down
All my lies and all my mistakes are coming out
I'm not coming down

Now I can't seem to understand
The uncertain thought of solid land
And all I want for you to see is that I'm not who I will be

Oh my God, oh my God
I'll keep fighting until I die
I'm not coming down

I'm not ready, I'm not ready
I'm not coming down
All my lies and all my mistakes are coming out
I'm not coming down
Track Name: When Winter Comes
I've been gone
It's been thirty days without
And I'm wrong because I still think about you
And I know that this is all my fault
You don't know that you did something wrong

Because the winter comes in other ways
I tried to tell you but you never wanted me to say

When winter comes and autumn's gone
I'll take what I have left and walk away
Summer's given me a heart too warm
That I cannot bare to stay and miss the sun
So don't wait up for me
I'm not coming home on Christmas Eve

I've been gone and I miss you more today
I still long for the warmth you took away
And I know that this is all my fault
You know that you did something wrong

Because the winter comes in other ways
I tried to tell you but you never wanted me to say

When winter comes and autumn's gone
I'll take what I have left and walk away
Summer's given me a heart too warm
That I cannot bare to stay and miss the sun
So don't wait up for me
I'm not coming home on Christmas Eve

I tried my best to make it through
But I think this time the winter got the best of you
I hope you know I thought we'd make it to see spring
But tonight I'll lie awake and you will freeze
