Track Name: A Sunday Afternoon Epilepsy
A Sunday Afternoon Epilepsy

I'm sitting in a room across the way,
contemplating figures, dates, it's raining.
And you know things aren't looking up,
when rain falls down and washes our sunny days.
I lift up from my chair and compose myself.
There is much to do.

I won't leave you,
don't you leave me too.

Everyday is a cycle, moving back and forth,
there's no end in sight.
I open the blinds in hopes of a change.
Has the rain picked up?
You see lately I've been wondering,
what the whole of this means,
why I'm tossing and turning?
In a cold sweat I have learned a few things,
about letting things go, but never letting it be.

I won't leave you,
don't you leave me too.

And so I'll open my door, cast aside reason,
and run down these stairs that lead to an exit,
with hope that you would still be there.
I wish that you would
always hold me close to your heart
Some day, you'll change,
but this could never change me.

I'm not leaving you.
I'm going home.
Track Name: Euphoria
Euphoria

She was the sky, the light.
she could shine so bright,
with iridescent beams.
love is a word we defined,
with our eyes,
with good nights.
I want you to know
I'm on fire,
my desire is to be only yours.

I'm for you.
Call me the epilepsy, I'll seize your heart.
I'm for you.
You should've known right from the start.
Euphoria.

Let me think back,
we began,
with tethered strings,
with mending wings,
we are free, from birth to be,
in love.

I'm for you.
Call me the epilepsy, I'll seize your heart.
I'm for you.
You should've known right from the start.
Euphoria.

You are everything and everywhere you go,
you flow like wayward phrase.
I touch your brown hair and stare
straight into your eyes.
mesmorized and blind.

When nothing in this world matters more,
I'm for you. Euphoria.
Track Name: White Pine Way
White Pine Way

Relentless, all those teenage dreams we shared.
Wasted, counting stars and holding hands.
This ends tonight. This is the end.

First time offender, we shared a kiss in your parent's house,
on the corner of Southhaven Ave & White Pine Way,
this ends today.

Tonight,
there's a promise kept at the altar waiting for his blushing bride who will leave him wanting.
Tonight,
I'm the question asked that's left unanswered, the kiss that lingers with the memories.
I'll see you in the morning.

Dressed in white,
a wolf in sheep's clothing,
I guess the promise ring you gave me was a weight we could not carry.

Tonight,
there's a promise kept at the altar waiting for his blushing bride who will leave him wanting.
Tonight,
I'm the question asked that's left unanswered, the kiss that lingers with the memories.
I'll see you in the morning.

All those long drives, cold eyes,
sitting still, when I was anxious to go home to you.
All those last words I'd take back,
every charming line, each handwoven misstep,
to see you smile again.
Track Name: New Year's Retribution
New Year’s Retribution

I've grown tired of my friends,
always redirecting plans.
I'll be at your place by ten,
I'll be out of work by then.
Maybe another day,
you see my girlfriend's been away,
I don't feel inspired right now,
save the songwriting for
when we're all a bit rested.

I feel sorry for my friends.
You know, they lead demanding lives.
It must be such hard work,
to return missed calls
and shoulder some ambition.
I probably shouldn't talk.
But, it's safe to say that,
I've really been trying.

I thought you should know,
there isn't a day where I don't think about you.
In our younger years, this couldn't happen.
Why do people let this happen?

I'm content with growing old.
I am set to place the past behind me.
No longer am I sold,
to the habits that controlled me in my youth.
I have made a list of plans,
and I fully intend on going through with them.

1. I'm going to wake up on time and start out fresh.
2. Buy new clothes and look my best.
3. I'm going to wear good shoes and change my socks.
4. I'm going to watch the road and be cautious of my steps.
5. I'm going to practice hard and
6. Eat real well.
7. I won't complain.
8. I'll appreciate my parents.
9. I'm going to stand up straight and take my time.
10. I'm going to see the world as God created.
11. I won't look for love or depend on it.
12. I'll let life take its chosen course.

I know I can't predict the end, so I will have to settle for a beginning.

You were my brother, when I was without one.
You lived across the fence.
We spoke secrets, juvie romantics, funny what kid's say.

And when I moved out, I found a neighbor,
I could share my family with.
Although you're still here, we talk very seldom,
and I'm probably to blame.

Since fifth grade I could wake up
on my best friends open bed.
We'd spend hours, just talking,
on his backyard trampoline.

Then came high school, you were the first girl,
I could speak to on the phone.
We listened to Beatles, and I really liked you,
you were the closest thing I knew.

There was this new kid, I really looked up to.
You know I envied your pursuits.
You lived in Florida, but stayed here with us,
and you kind of grew on me.

There was another, who had things together.
She learned a lot from life.
And she taught me to be careful,
and to never lose my sight.

And through an art class,
I discovered an abstract, an all around great girl.
You were my first love, and I won't forget that,
so thank-you for two years.

I was a senior, when we re-united,
and you introduced your band.
We made music, yeah, we were committed,
in more ways than one.

Then in college, you made me smile,
and you told me how it is
You had a big heart, and you left it with me,
and I am in your debt.

The point that I'm making is everyone changes.
Some get left behind.
If you're even listening, just know that I love you,
no matter where we go.
