Track Name: Up Close
I walked myself here
Who am I fooling?
I wrote off the wrongs from these years
In that old convenient way.

I walked myself home
Who am I fooling?
I wrote off the lies from these years
In that old convenient way

Who have I been fooling?
Not me.
Track Name: Want For Nothing
Taking it easy,
I thought it’d be easier to do.

I have been learning
How to want for nothing.
You don’t make it easy.
Do you?


It’s hard to say how far
But I’ve come a long way
And maybe I’ve missed a few turns.

I have been learning
How to want for nothing.
You don’t make it easy.
Do you?
Track Name: Blood Is In The Heart
What will I do?
Where will I go?
I’m just asking 'cause I’m human.

I’m not complaining ‘cause what’s the use?
We all got our shit to deal with.

In a way I’ve learned to try to give up.

Every path I’ve hunted that hides from me
Like a shadow in the dark
Helps me to remember:
All roads lead home
Because the blood is in the heart.

Combing these tall grasses for possibilities...
Have I looked past them
Or right at them and still clouded up my eyes?

In a way I’ve got to try to get over myself.

Every hand I’ve shaken has shaken too,
Like a ripple on the shore
Helps me to remember:
Everybody feels
Because the blood is in the heart.
Track Name: Timing
Sleeping lightly,
The visions rarely seem to last long enough to focus on
What I reach for in the end

Do you know what it feels like
To do this for something that matters more than you matter to it?

Or to loosen up your grip to drop the lies
Of thinking you know better.
While everything changes

The timing is everything.

Well, maybe I’m helplessly committed to
Seeking a sentiment in every move
If it brings me back to truth

And I’ve loosened up my grip enough to drop the lies
Of thinking I know better
While everything changes when it wants to

The timing is everything.

What brings me confidence- a sign or a wasted word that never finds me?
For every breath I take from this life, I hope it serves me.
And every truth I claim when it’s time, I hope I’m worthy.
I hope I’m worthy.
Cause I know.

The timing is everything.
