Track Name: The Heart of It
only thing i'll always plead is always sing

be mine now love, and only mine

beside me we'll be happy here

i'll sweep every corner, dear
i'll wash ever mirror clear
you can see for yourself, my love
what the hell i am doing here
you're the bird flying over this
i'm just gathering softer sticks
should you tire then land here, love
and you can rest in the heart of it
someday you'll sing this dirge once i'm gone
i'll have watched you for long enough that i could fly there too
Track Name: With Time (BLK DMNDS Ultralight remix)
I remember well the fields we have outgrown
when we first watched in awe the ball clearing the road
we were homegrown champs of those worn end zones
back when the seasons changed the shapes we used to throw

i have visited the hills we used to slide
those we defended with our frozen fists and pride
where the bravest neighbors would stand and ride
those shoots they have grown over with time

do you remember now the bridge we took to raise?
so we could cross and walk for miles to where you stayed?
fixing dumpster scraps with stolen nails all day...
well the river rose and washed it all away
