Track Name: Roman Candles
like roman candles
we flickered through the night
on fire. no motives. just right. all right

and i wish
that we could go back
but it’s alright for us to stay
and i wish
this was just nothing
but it’s alright for it to stay
get out of my way

but all, all i wanna do
is make a fool, make a fool of you
cause all, all i really know
is what i tell myself when i’m alone
so please don’t toe the line
i think it’s time to get a move-on, sing a new song
i will be singing your praises
one of these days, but not today

and i wish
that we could go back
but it’s alright for us to stay
and i wish
this was just nothing
but it’s alright for it to stay
get out of my way
Track Name: Little Taste of Heaven
in the future i’ll make sense
of all that was and is
and evermore shall be
and if i can do it right
i’ll find that this won’t be
like every other time
like every other time

all you were to me
all you were to me
was just a little taste
just a little taste of heaven

all you are to me
all you are to me
is just a little taste
just a little taste of heaven

in the future i’ll make sense
of all that was and is
and everymore shall be
and if i can do it right
i’ll find that this won’t be
like every other time
like any other time
Track Name: Spilt Milk
i see you crying over spilt milk
i see you crying over spilt milk
but i don’t blame you
i see you crying over spilt milk
i see you crying over spilt milk
but i don’t blame you
i don’t blame you

and i wish i could wash it all away
but i’m not holding my breath
and i wish things would always stay the same
but i’m not holding my breath
Track Name: Boy
alone i’m a captive of my mind
with no regard for exhibition
i’m a rebel fighter
i’m a social collider
and i need you

now that you know me
you see i’m a lonely boy
now that you hold me
you see i’m a lonely boy

alone i’m a captive of my mind
with no regard for inhibition
i’m a rebel fighter
i’m a streetcar named desire
and i’m coming home to you

now that you know me
you see i’m a lonely boy
now that you hold me
you see i’m a lonely boy
Track Name: The Pauper and the Queen
it wasn’t easy at the start
cupid’s arrow in my heart
three times i pled; three times i wed
the pauper to the queen

it wasn’t easy when we drove
from the trails to open road
i was like you, and you were like me
a child with a dream

it isn’t easy to be strong
when days grow short and weeks grow long
we had to prove there was something to lose
not as easy as it seemed

so am i wasting my time
just looking for some kind of feeling
is it all in my head, was it all in my head
well either way, either way

i’m coming home
i’m coming home at last
