Track Name: Alone Sometimes
alone sometimes

You say that you've got to run
but you don't know what you're running from
still you turn and fly away, away

you want to float into the setting sun
but your wings would melt before the flight's begun
still you turn and fly away, away

you fall in love with everyone
but you won't get close to anyone
still you turn and fly away, away

----------------

running in the rain, soaking up the shame
I don't remember my own last name
letting go the pain that's been weighing on my brain
I can't recall what I did today

----------------

I don't want to live a lonely life
I don't want to live a lonely life
you don't need to be a stoneman's wife
but I need to be alone sometimes
alone sometimes
Track Name: If It's Good Enough For You
if it's good enough for you

Say your rosary for me
one time, just count along the beads
may your prayers ring out in peace
as they float into the mist
like a lifeboat lost at sea

I was climbing on the roof,
I was hanging from the eaves
they were all filled up with leaves
and the breeze was blowing by
it was rushing through the trees
sounding like a symphony,
at least it did to me

and I was laying in the grass
and the clouds were rolling past
you were sitting on my knees
looking right into my eyes
telling me your little lies
but that was good enough for me

if it's good enough for you
then it's good enough for me
that's really all I need

if it's good enough for you
then it's good enough for me
that's really all I need

there were scratches on the chairs
the chairs were scratching up the floors
and the floors had just been cleaned
the lamps were full of dust
hinges eaten up by rust
dusk was falling on the street

i went walking down a lane
saw a garden in the shade
people unwinding from their week
a group of friends was drinking wine
they were getting high
they never noticed me
I thought I might not ever go back home
but I came back and you were waiting up for me

i didn't mean to make you cry girl
you know i lose my mind sometimes
but you help me find it when I'm lost and weak
when I'm lost at sea
seems every single week

if it's good enough for you
then it's good enough for me
that's really all i need

if it's good enough for you
then it's good enough for me
that's really all i need

people saying what they feel
is not always what they mean
that's why we learn to read
the glimmer in the eye,
the gentle quiver of the cheek,
the pause before you speak
the things that people want
aren't always what they need
aren't always what they seem
the words that people say
aren't always what they feel
aren't always what they mean

if it's good enough for you
then it's good enough for me
that's really all i need
