I remember in the winter when you took me by the hand

When princess point was frozen and there was a bitter wind

We went out past the highway where the little islands are

And looked out at the steel mills underneath the stars

And it was cold, cold, cold but I'll take the c...

She called me to say that we needed to talk
I knew right away when I felt my heart stop

I couldn't sleep at all that night

I lay awake till the morning light

She don't want me no more

It's been some months and I think of her still

Questions need answers and holes need a fil...

It's amazing how fast a day will pass when you're alone and blue

It's amazing how fast you'll relapse and never follow through

I tried to try but I defy my best intentions

And despite my eyes she was right about me after all

It's amazing how weak a man can be given in to l...

It occurs to me how much we sleep when you're half a world away from me

Sure the world is more connected then ever before
Deliveries from anywhere right to my door


I can write you, text you, call you facebook wall you

Type you, skype you, but I really want to be with you

...

Through and through is the pain I feel
Through and through I played my part

The story changes and the curtain falls

Through and through you broke my heart

Did you ever feel like somethings wrong?
Something weird is going down

The burden's heavy and I'm not strong

I'm the em...

If I had a segway I'd segway away

Into the morning, into the grey

I'm tired of the heartache, the work, and the pain

So if I had a segway I'd segway away

They'd see me rolling at the top of a hill

Catch my wheels strolling wherever they will

From Kennedy station all the way...

 I relate to your uncertainty.  What to do at university?
Let's take a walk through the campus.
Converse crunch the autumn leaves.  You look for the reddest one.
I think that's kind of cool.

You only need a couple pairs of jeans that you like and that is that.
Wh...

We fell in love eight years ago. You took my hand on Sterling road.
Wrote you a song to a cowboys tune: my darling shining just like the moon.

We were still so young thinking of then, many ways we've changed, many ways the same.
As we grew up hand in hand you became a...

I've been afraid for a good amount of time

My thoughts in chaos without a reason or a rhyme

But word by word and line by line
I've made my mind
Now I know
Falling hard this time I chose

Blocks and cinders, guitar set on my knee

Poems and tinders, responsibilities

Ironically...

Black cap oxford shiny and smooth
Soft suede leather, a fine ankle shoe

There's a man's shoes at the door

And they weren't there before

Last night when I got home

I left my boots there all alone

Sometime
After I fell asleep last night

And slept the sleep of ethanol

A pair o...
