Subway Love 03:16
You’re standing next to me And looking at our reflection One could make the speculation That we’d make a good match Only I don’t know your name Or where you’re from, If you’re any fun Or if you’re a good catch CHORUS You can be my subway love No one needs to know but us As this train carries us above You can be my subway love Full of mystery and fun Suspending our world For a while Maybe it’s the rock of this car That puts these feelings in my heart I can’t help but glance Every time I get a chance Maybe it’s the time that we spend At the days beginning and end If we’re lucky It all starts over again CHORUS BRIDGE But you will never know How I admire you And I will never know If I’d grow tired soon And as these double doors part I’ll go mine, And you’ll go yours CHORUS Extended
Breaking 04:41
You could swallow me whole This I already know And I could walk away But I won’t, no I won’t not today Pre-CHOURS But it’s all too familiar Reaching for a stone pillar That’s not even there— So you don’t know to care CHORUS But I keep breaking my own parts Even before you can get a start I guess it’s easier to mend in the dark If you’ve fallen alone You keep me here Cause you like to know that I’m near And I stick around Out of fear of what I have found Pre-chorus Chorus Bridge: I hate finding the bad in people So I find the fault in me I go back and trace the ways that I Didn’t seem to fit into your days Last chorus Extended You look me in the eye To make sure I'm still on your side And I continue to lie And hope it all subsides
Squeeze 02:50
It starts in my stomach Then up into my lungs Over to the beating left Into the very drum It’s not how I pictured it It probably never will Yet we all keep going on Moving till we’re still CHORUS And I'm squeezing All my muscles cause I don’t have control And I am learning slowly Just how to-- Let go, let go Uncertainty follows me We both feel lost, wandering Until we reach, the winding stream Who shows us we’re just living So steady and full of grace How do we grow to tolerate Both the joys and the heartbreak And still wake up to face the day CHORUS Instrumental Outro: It starts in my stomach Then up into my lungs
OldNew 03:53
Your hands barely move Your feet shuffle along You stare out the window Think of how the days have gone Fifteen years alone After fifty together I know you meant it That day you said forever CHORUS It’s the space between Turn the valley green It’s the ways unseen That teach us how to weep It’s the place that we dream That bring us peace You put yourself to bed In the very same place Hope if you stay still enough You’ll get to see his face Will he be a young lad Like the night you first went dancing Or will he be older Granddaughter on his shoulder CHORUS Another round Though this here calendar Better mark the dates down All we can do is remember All we can do is remember Outro CHORUS
The days been long And the night settles in You’ve been strong We do the best that we can When your body is tired And your mind is weak Let yourself retire The voices that speak CHORUS Even if you don’t believe In anything else Butt the stars above Our uncertain selves As you’re drifting off to sleep Please know—that you are loved… You are loved Let the hurt slip away You can do no harm this way Let stillness take its place You can’t change moments past Or predict the futures plan Trust that where you are Is right where you should stand Right now it’s time To let the sandman dance CHORUS BRIDGE Rest so you can live And wake to then forgive Be-friend-ed shadows Can never, never win Outtro CHORUS Take comfort that the day is done The morning light it will come In the mean time know… That you are loved, you are loved…
Feel Okay 02:13
I’m gonna smile At all the frowns I’m gonna bless All the sneezes In the town Cause baby we’re all trying To get through the day Baby, We all want to feel okay I’m gonna let you cut When I’m waiting in line And if you start to fret I’ll say don’t worry, Its fine Cause baby we’re all trying To get through the day Baby, We all want to feel okay And usually When people are, grumpy It’s got absolutely nothing To do with you and me Maybe, if we try to take it easy and a little less personally Just keep breathing I'm gonna laugh At the poor man’s jokes I’m gonna forgive The impatient folks Cause baby we’re all trying To get through the day Baby, We all want to feel okay
Bonus Track 02:09
I still believe But I'm finding it harder A tiny flicker In the corner of my heart I still believe But I'm finding it harder So I won't waste time Trying to explain
