Track Name: More Than Wanted
Take a step closer and see how you're more than wanted here
I become a part of you
Separable true, but not today
A song for you, for me to say
What words can't express we shared together
A song for you, for me to say
What words can't express I'll express today
So easy to take for granted, undeniably that way
Not the words we never meant, the ones we wouldn't say
Glad I never did, it wouldn't have lasted this long
Maybe this only the start
More than wanted
Track Name: Jaws of Life
Time is now and I think I'll wait
These days are hard to chase
In these hours I stand and pace for you
I'll wait
Do my words wear thin
I Don't know where to begin
Bound hands trying to grasp this last piece of life
The dead dance, laughing in the faces of the lifeless
The dead dance in the dance of life
Suddenly everything connects
So won't you come down to where we started
The dead dance ???
Track Name: Giving Tree
Washed your face down, scrubbed it so clean
Decisions made with honesty, what remains the giving tree
So hide yourself inside
Don't participate in what you defy
You've changed your ways
How could I blame you, things weren't going your way
Throw yourself in my path
The unforgiving smile on your face
Living with your honest claims
What remains, the giving tree
Track Name: Handwriting
I can't read your handwriting
I got your message
Something about a time and a place
The rest I really couldn't say
You build these words towering over me
And no one's around when they come caving in
We'll never see each other
I'll never forget you
Although I probably should have
Trying to decipher you
You build these words towering over me
Creating images
So beautiful and meaningless
I can't read your handwriting
