Track Name: You in the Night
i like you lying
your knees and shoulders bare
like a wild animal
in the shade resting

and when you're starving
do you think about her
hanging in their bedroom
red nails and sweater
Track Name: The Attic
what would you do, if it was summer and we were older?
would we find the time for each other?
would we have to wait through the winters?
would we fall in love all over?

what if we could walk to our houses
or could say ok later come over
what if it was easier for us?
would it still stay unused like the attic?

or we can go and find a place to hide out
out on a cliff or up hidden in the attic

wanna see your hair grow
or we could cut them at the same time
wanna see the colors in your eyes
when we stay up so late like butterflies
Track Name: Find You
i remember being in the darkroom
with you in the evenings before eating
and under the kitchen floor boards
we'd develop photographs, black and white pictures

i could tell you right now that i'm wild
about you and it's not a lie
but if we find that too much time
is passing us by well it's just a crime

i'd like to come home and find you in my bed
rather than watching movies alone instead
Track Name: Empty Bed
nights just go so slow when you're in an empty bed
and the snow trucks keep you up
like how your shadows used to

nights just go so slow when you're in an empty bed
and the snow trucks keep you up
like how it haunts you

nights just get so cold when you're in an empty bed
and the little lamp just stares at you while you're tormented
Track Name: Winter Shadow
won't somebody smack me and make me realize
like if you live so far apart it may not work
hold on to his cameras where his fingers used to press
like what else can you hold close now to your chest

i just close my eyes and think about all the nights i'd like to be with you
while i'm just painfully here lying on the floor
i just close my eyes and think about all the nights i'd like to be with you
i just think about how pretty she is

could you be my winter shadow when the kitchen's too cold for me to cook
or when my bedroom's cold after i come home from work
i know that you would miss you friends in the sun
and sunny green plants

i just close my eyes and think about all the nights i'd like to be with you
while i'm here wishing for something more
i just close my eyes and think about all the nights i'd like to be with you
i just think about how pretty she is

could you be my winter coat when i need someone to hang around me
or if i get sick when the wind chills minus something
i know that this town is so small and far away
maybe we just don't belong

listen to the radio they tell you about the seals
like if you see them on a wharf they are just resting
oh to take a break from cold water living
or to take a break from missing you this evening
or to get on some planes i wanna see you so bad
lord i hope this winter passes so fast

or to take a break from cold water moaning
or to take a break from missing you to this evening
or to get on some planes i wanna see you so bad
or to take a break from everything that makes you sad

she only lives in california
where would i meet ya
so far away in another land
when will i see ya
Track Name: Aaron in the Basement
alabama's not too far for me
as she said that could be our meeting spot
take you home with me if i could
and we could lye on the cold floors

there's a strange wait for autumn leaves
as she says goodbye to september
bedroom window watching like a cat
as you're waiting for her company

give me just one reason to stay here
before my blood freezes and i die
like aaron in the basement is cold
i just wanna know where my home is

now i'm trying to find you
where are you staying tonight
is aaron in the basement alright
where are you sleeping tonight
is aaron in the basement alive

says he's staying at someone's house i wouldn't know
says he's name greg and i don't have his telephone
nobody sees him he hides all alone on his own
Track Name: Together in the Darkness
i started to miss my friends
and the weather was growing bad
cloudy with rain
so i went to the store
and i started to feel a bit better
i just wanted someone familiar to laugh with
a very young couple in this town
found out they were going to have a baby
so he sold his house to them
but in this early morning darkness
when all you can see is black
you'd never know there's an ocean there
i just want to be out in the boat with my dogs
Track Name: My Sister's House
so when there's no one but the wind
and low lying fog against the cliffs
could i stay at my sisters house
a place that does not exist
where there's a bed made for you
and she could be there for me

so when there's no one but the wind
and low lying fog and heavy mist
could i stay at my sister's house
where there's a bed made for you
and late night talks help you through
when winter's hard for you
Track Name: The Rocking Chair
can you put me in a rocking chair and
tell me that you can make it
before skin gets old
tell me that we're not doomed
i just wanna hear your voice in my ear

but the road was icy
as we slip further away
Track Name: Videos of You
i can see you tho your miles away
want to be inside your winter coat
such a warm and safe place to sleep

play with me like soft wax
we can build a fire with our hands

i could stay up all night
just watching you
like an angel in my bedroom
such a holy sight

i like to watch videos of you
sitting inside watching videos of you
home alone watching videos of you
