Track Name: Land of Gracious Living
BACK IN THE DAYS YOU SAID YOU FELT FREE,
BACK IN THAT SUMMER YOU DIDN’T SAY A SINGLE
WORD TO ME
ITS NOT HARD TO SEE,
WE TRIED BUT COULDN’T BE

AND EVERY NIGHT I GET A BAD DREAM
I LAY AWAKE AND IT ALWAYS SEEMS TO FEEL LIKE NOTHING
AN APOLOGY
I PROBABLY SHOULD STILL KEEP

BUT YOU SPENT EVERY OTHER AFTERNOON
FINDING WAYS TO FEEL ALONE,
ITS NOTHING SHORT OF NEW

AND THEN THAT NIGHT YOU TRIED TO BLAME ME
AND JUST AS SOON I SWORE I COULD HAVE SEEN
YOU SMILING
ITS A BAD DREAM, ITS THE ONE YOU’D NEVER KEEP

AND THEN THAT NIGHT AT OUR FRIEND’S BIRTHDAY
YOU HAD ME BY THE THROAT, I CAN STILL HEAR
YOU LAUGHING
NO APOLOGY, NO GETTING BACK AT IT

BUT YOU, SPEND EVERY OTHER AFTERNOON
FINDING WAYS TO FEEL ALONE, YOU GOT EVERYTHING
TO LOSE

ALL THE BRIGHT LIGHTS STANDING IN YOUR WAY
YOU TOLD TO GO AWAY
AND ALL THE PEOPLE TELLING YOU TO STAY
THEY’RE JUST MORE OF THE SAME
IF YOU’D AGREE, BUT ONLY IF YOU’D AGREE

NOWADAYS I CATCH YOU DRINKING
AS IF THERES REASON AT ALL TO BE PROUD OF SOMETHING
ITS A FEELING, ITS EVERYTHING WORTHWHILE

BUT YOU SPEND EVERY OTHER AFTERNOON
FINDING WAYS TO BE ALONE, I COULD HAVE USED IT TOO
Track Name: Catherine at the Movies
I ALMOST MEANT EVERYTHING
LIKE HOW YOU TAKE AND NEVER GIVE
AND IT ALMOST WORKED OUT THAT WAY
YOU SAID IT NEVER DID

IN THE FREEZING CAR THAT NIGHT
YOU SAID YOU WANTED TO FORGET
ABOUT SOME AWFUL DREAMS YOU HAD
I BET YOU NEVER DID

IT FELT LIKE OVERCOMING SOMETHING THAT
YOU HAD NEVER SAID

I STILL HAVE ALL YOUR THINGS
SOME BOOKS YOU NEVER READ
A COUPLE OF HALF WRITTEN POSTCARDS
I KNEW YOU’D NEVER SEND

YOU KNOW ITS OVERCOMING SOMETHING WHEN
YOU’RE SURE ITS BOUND TO END
