Track Name: Final Final
We slipped away as per our scheme

Closed the curtain, stared into the camera, a photogenic team

We let nostalgia be our theme

It left us with four pictures that helped prove it’s not a dream.

She told me memories are pictures we always see

As I remembered back to when I didn’t feel like me

But something brought us here, and now I’m filled with urgency

To not over-think everything while trying just to be

We stood in back of the concert hall

With people in front of us; sacrificing visual

I didn’t crane my neck at all

When she leaned up next to me; I’ve never felt so tall

She told me memories are the songs we’ll always play

As I remembered back to when I used to dread new days

But something brought us here, and now I’m hoping that it stays

As close to me as possible, and never goes away

Never goes away…

She told me memories are the paintings we’ll amass

As I remembered back to when I lived inside the past

And now we made it here, and every moment goes so fast

With every memory patiently waiting while this lasts
Track Name: Evicted
My home’s become a place I fear,

Where I have all but disappeared-

With the moments that we’ve shared…

All taken down. The walls are bare.

The paint has dried. I’m terrified of what’s implied…

Did I miss your notice that I’ve been evicted?

If I leave, what’s achieved? I’ve been evicted.

Hide the memories in this place.

Keep them boxed up to have more space.

Our lives will seem less intertwined,

But you still live inside my mind.

You rearrange and thrive on change as we estrange…

Did I miss your notice that I’ve been evicted?

If I leave, what’s achieved? I’ve been evicted.

I never wanted space to rent.

I thought this was a permanent agreement.

Did I miss your notice that I’ve been evicted?

If I leave, what’s achieved? I’ve been evicted.

Close the door? Are you sure? I’ve been evicted.

If I leave, what’s achieved? I’ve been evicted.
Track Name: Conversation
There are times when we won’t be eloquent,

What’s on our minds can’t seem to find the exit,

But nothing’s fine. Why are we ok with this?

Oh, oh, oh.

-The feeling when we don’t know what to say.

Oh, oh, oh, ohhh.

-The feeling when we don’t know what to say.

It’s in our eyes, the things that need to be said.

It’s no surprise that we choose silence instead.

Unsatisfied, but it’s the talking we dread.

Oh, oh, oh.

-The feeling when we don’t know what to say.

Oh, oh, oh, ohhh.

-The feeling when we don’t know what to say.

Oh, oh, oh.

-Intending to converse another day.

Oh, oh, oh, ohhh.

-Pretending it will all just go away.

Avoidance is easy, but look where we are.

We need conversation.

Our voices need hearing, or we’ll drift apart.

We need conversation.

Oh, oh, oh.

-The feeling when we don’t know what to say.

Oh, oh, oh, ohhh.

-The feeling when we don’t know what to say.

Oh, oh, oh.

-Intending to converse another day.

Oh, oh, oh, ohhh.

-Pretending it will all just go away.

We need conversation.
