Nostro Completely coincidentally, the album purchase prior I made reference to Hayden. I've often looked on bandcamp to find your whereabouts with no luck. Welcome aboard Hayden, my cd's have been locked away in storage for some 3+years now & yours are some I've not been able to find elsewhere & sorely missed. Favorite track: Bullet.

When I said I would try to be calm I lied to prove myself wrong The truth is in the details first And the writing's on the wall And the closer I get to being strong The less to go wrong When he said times are changing I thought he meant Times were changing for the better but they weren't The truth is in the details first And the writing's on the wall And the closer I get to being strong The less to go wrong

Stride 02:45
Feeling right, feeling ok tonight You inside I don't think I made the right decision here You and I we take it all in stride... You and I rely on little things to get by Feeling good, feeling like I should Deep inside I think I made the right decision here You and I we take it all in stride... You and I rely on little things to get by... You and I rely on little things to get by

With your summer hat and smile You came here to leave there And as the sun stained your legs and your arms The men arrive with their one-track minds You like that they're there when they ask you the time They say what they do, and they'll do what you say And they'll tell you some lies if you let them stay And you laugh but not too hard And you look but not too far Your eyes drift across the beach And just before you reach me, he speaks His face is red and he's talking to breathe You get up to leave as the sun hits the trees And you jump in the water with him at your feet And I laugh but not too hard And I look but not too far

Bullet 05:08
I turn the radio up again Rolled the window down and took it in I'm going too fast but I don't give a shit Cause something's chasing me and I have to win It makes sense to forget what it takes It makes sense to forget what it takes I found a bullet outside my door I think it's me it was intended for It makes sense to forget what it takes It makes sense to forget what it takes It makes sense to forget what it takes It makes sense to forget what it takes

Two Doors 05:11
I saw you in line when I checked in And I thought that you smiled, but I’m uncertain I know all of the lines, but they don't work for me So I just turned away and let it be There's only two doors in between us I got a bucket and I'll get some ice We'll watch a movie and we'll feel alright tonight We'll watch a movie and we'll feel tonight On the way to my room, I saw you in the hall Our rooms were side by side in this huge hotel I could hear through the wall you were watching what I was So I picked up my guitar and I wrote this for us There's only two doors in between us I've got a bucket and I'll get some ice We'll watch a movie and we'll feel alright tonight We'll watch a movie and we'll feel tonight There's only two doors in between us I've got a bucket and I'll get some ice We'll watch a movie and we'll feel alright tonight We'll watch a movie and we'll feel tonight

I taught you to play guitar last night We've been sick for days, and we were stuck inside And I held your arm as you hit the string I pressed your fingers down and started to sing And our heater was shaking cause the city was cold And my favourite guitar was between us to hold And I held your arm as you hit the strings I pressed your fingers down and started to sing, sing

Did you open your eyes when you first saw me? Did you open your eyes when you first saw… me? First saw me It's funny how things make sense when your lonely It's funny how you want more when your happy I'm coming over, will you open the door for me I'm better off inside In your eyes, I see you in disguise You're talking backwards, telling lies Telling lies It's funny how things make sense when you’re lonely It's funny how you want more when you’re happy I'm coming over, will you open the door for me I'm better off inside

Memphis 03:37
How do you protect a forty-two year old from himself I saw on TV his road manager speak of his demise The pain is here The pain is here The pain is here The pain is here And it won't be long In Memphis tens of thousands of fans payed their respects The pain is here The pain is here The pain is here The pain is here And it won't be long

You are all I have You are all I have You are all I have If you go away I don't think that I will survive I'll wait outside the front door till you arrive The light of day will shine inside of your eyes Inside your eyes I'll see me there by your side Am I all you have? Am I all you have? Am I all you have? If I go way I know that you will survive You're stronger than me, I have just realized You won't be outside of the door till I arrive The light of day will shine inside of your eyes

I remember the day it came Flashing lights and sirens rang They took you and put you inside I walked the house ten times And I'm riding down to let you know That I love you although it doesn't show When we argued about the car I want you to know That I am so Thankful that you're here How come everything has to change? I wish were four and six and in the rain When we were six and eight, we dressed the same When we were 24 and 26, I wrote this down And I'm coming down to let you know That I love you though it doesn't show When we argued about the car I want you to know That I am so Thankful that you're here
