Track Name: Alice Blue
She comes to me in all her finest finery
Waiting for the birds to sing low
And when they do
She’ll paint it alice blue

She walks alone in the mountain meadow
Waiting for her lover to return
And right on cue
She’ll paint it alice blue

And when she stops she goes
And when she’s lost she knows
That all she has to do
Is paint it alice blue

I come to you
For your coat of alice blue
Track Name: Feel This Way
I’ll take on this world like a man
With my shirt, my tie, my shoes, these hands
My stoic goodbyes

And I’ll get to work on my problems
With my hammer, my nail, my bucket, this rain
My disposition never to fail

And when nothing is for sure
And I shoulder all the blame
It’s just how I feel
And I don’t want you to feel this way

I can teach you right from wrong
But sometimes I feel why draw a map
When all these names keep changing and new borders are being drawn

And we can argue until we’re blue
Draw a line in the sand but you know
I’d rather be standing on the same side as you


And when nothing is for sure
And I shoulder all the blame
It’s just how I feel
And I don’t want you to feel this way

I try to be composed
But still the unforeseen shakes me up and down
Spins me on its dizzying merry-go-round

And I know I seem distracted
I try to keep it to myself
Because some things should never by anyone’s


And when nothing is for sure
And I shoulder all the blame
It’s just how I feel
And I don’t want you to feel this way
Track Name: The Deepest Blue
He tripped and fell
And it broke her heart
Bones as brittle as chalk
That break with the dust
Of every place
They’ve ever been.

You can only break
So many times
Before it all crumbles
In one big sigh
Whispering
I’m sorry
I think that was my one more try

Joined together
I won’t forget
It’s now or never
We’ll plunge the depths

Colour
Away the years
We’ll do it frame by frame
With nothing but our hands
In red, yellow, blue
You can paint it
Whatever you want to

We’ve cut and paste
And we’ve mixed and matched
And throughout all the years
Held onto the scraps
Now it’s time to glue
All the pieces
Into a river the deepest blue

Joined together
I won’t forget
It’s now or never
We’ll plunge the depths

And see how deep it goes
Lead us in the throes of something we never quite knew our own.
