Track Name: Caroline
Caroline in the city, Caroline in the snow,
Caroline takes it easy, she takes it harder than you know
And the older you get you become so real,
And the older you fight, you become so real

Caroline takes a corner, Caroline in the fall,
Caroline on the evening, Caroline taken home,
And the older you get you become so real,
And the older you fight, you become so real

I'll take you home
Track Name: Paper House
Well I carried baggage all the way, from my carried paper house
And i ripped the corner off the wall, just to see if i could get out,
but no,
I'm still in here,
still in here,
I'm still in here,
still in here

Well I counted older hours past, from my carried paper house,
And I ripped the corner off the wall, just to see if i could get out,
but no,
I'm still in here,
still in here,
I'm still in here,
still in here,
Well i started on the south, it was a kind place to begin,
And i dugg so carefully into, the brick wall holds me in,
but no,
I'm still in here,
still in here,
I'm still in here,
still in here
Track Name: Lavers Hill
Bird falling dead, flattened coloured head,
And the morning bread, smelt of the air
Afternoon friend, feel me in your hair,
Sister of a dare, now it's becoming clear

How do you find yourself, how do you find yourself?
Even in loves own church, how do you find yourself?
Track Name: Liquor Store
You can't buy love at a liquor store, called all the birds she knew and told,
You caught my heart at a liquor store, like everyone we knew and know.
We fell right down on the front lawn, the alcohol was hitting home,
we found our friends friends right near the pond, we lost our clothes we lost them all
It's what it's like to feel alive.
Track Name: I Let You Down
I said it's harder for me, harder to see in the snow,
In your difficult life, you've taken some time to grow

I said you've got the eyes of your Father
I know I let you down, I wish I could forget somehow,
I know I let you down, I wish I could forget somehow,
No i never met my Grandfather

I said you've got the eyes of your Father,
I know I let you down, I wish I could forget somehow,
I know I let you down, I wish I could forget somehow,
No I never met my Grandfather
Track Name: June
Are you sadder than me?
Are you sadder than me?
I hide in my dreams, where you can't hurt me.
Are you sadder than me?
Track Name: Older
Shivers down my spine let me know,
The trees that grew inside your lovely soul,
The river flows, the river goes, it starts to go,
The wind that blew in starts to slow,
Growing older you, you become you

Paralyse starts a trail, and the trees you grew are protected from the hail,
The fire burns, the fire burns, it burns the cold,
And the rabbit hole that kept inside your soul,
Growing older you, you become you,
Growing colder you, you become you,
Never fall and drown,
Growing older you, you become you.

And the ocean comes your way, let me know that it's time to stay,
Let me see your sweet calming face, we're the kids of the coming day
Track Name: They Can't Keep You In
Not sure if home feels like home no more,
The cats are old, the dogs are bored,
The milk i spilt falls right down the stairs and forms a hole
I'm not sure if home feels like home no more,
when windows stay closed at night,
I heard Mother fall right down the stairs,
And when she cried,
I said remember when,
You felt stronger than you'd ever, and raindrops they can't keep you in
It's like a headache moving in, the top drawer's empty once again,
now i feel like moving out, take a train, go south.
You said,
You felt stronger than you'd ever, and raindrops they can't keep you in
Track Name: Song for Don
You keep smiling in your heart, spread your ashes where we will,
And you left your son so soon mate, so young to lose
We're all gathered in your room today, just remember your place and your calming face,
I will stand and you will stand here next to me

And I will miss you every day,
and your daughters will go on with grace for you,
just to see your wildest smile in face,
just to see your wife's smile in place for you

And I will miss you every day,
yeah your calming warm heart,
and your daughters will go on with grace,
just to see your wife's smile,
And I will miss you every day,
and your daughters will go on with grace for you,
just to see your wildest smile in face,
just to see your wife's smile in face for you
