Track Name: Watch You Go
For many days, I cried your name
Alone and lost, not thinking straight
For many weeks, I could not sleep
I could not eat, I could not see

And all of these walls were too high to scale
As I breathed in and watched you go
My heart could not believe that this was real
I tried to breathe as I watched you go

For some time hence, I leaned on friends
Growing my strength, not broke but bent
With time wounds mend, it makes more sense
I know you went, to where you're meant

But none of that makes me not love you
How can I breathe while I watch you go?
I only wanted to hold and protect you
I try to breathe as I watch you go

And it feels strange, to hear my name
In different ways, to embrace change
It is my fate, to watch my pain
Expand and grow, then dissipate

And all of these walls have begun to crumble
As I breathe out and watch you go
Now I stand up and rise from the rubble
With my love I can watch you go
Track Name: Finding Flames
I've been way down low
Searching for...
What, who knows?

I thought: "Son, go slow."
"Reap what you sow."

But in the end I know that I can't leave it up to chance
I'll always go to find those flames
