Ours To Own 02:07
We see a long laundry list Of everything to fix While the gradient of history Paints goodness as a lady of mystery And we're anchored afraid in place We loved the chase When we thought we would catch her We only wanted to be like her But you don't have to catch her To have the light of her As soon as we decide this is so It's ours to own Within these candlestick bones Swelling sighs of stillness It's ours to own Walking down the road In boots that aren't our own We're not shining polished pans But clean like streams and wind Rinsing with mercy our wrongs Singing our own songs It's ours to own Within these candlestick bones Swelling sighs of stillness It's ours to own

Conditional 02:53
I'm aware of how conditional our romance is I know it has its limits I can see that times it's selfless But I can tell when it isn’t I'm aware that I need you more than you need me I've tried to need you less 'Cause you seem just fine with or without me But without you I'm a mess I'm aware that you do care for me You just don't want to keep me back I kinda wish you would want to keep though It's so selfless, I can't even be mad And I'm aware that we're only human beings Claiming unconditionality In a completely conditional relationship How discouraging But what are we supposed to do Not believe at all in any truth? Accept that it's mostly about belonging Is it me for you and you for me? I'm aware of how conditional our romance is I know it has its limits I can see that times it's selfish But sometimes it isn’t

Fall Back On 03:17
I never quite knew what to make of Oklahoma No matter how often I drive through her nights But miles have markers and markers mean time I hum a sad tune I don't know if it's yours or it's mine Sometimes you sing for the song Sometimes you sing for someone I never quite knew who you really were Until I was hundreds of miles a way But lovers write letters, our pens have run dry I still sing your songs and I wonder if you still sing mine Sometimes you sing for the song Sometimes you sing for someone Too many guitars and I can't find the chords To finish this part of the song You're no more my muse than the 'ludes or the booze A trio too easy to fall back on Sometimes you sing for the song Sometimes you sing for someone

Ruby 04:25
Ruby lay down your arms tonite I don't want to fight anymore About rumors that are going 'round town About the drinks that I've had at the bar The women I've had in my car Or the men that you said were “just friends” But sleep on my side of the bed Trust and love are hard to find While lust and beauty cloud the mind No one wants to go it alone You know somewhere I misplaced my faith So I put it in the lines of your face And no wrinkle could make me think twice But a hardness has set in your eyes Oh trust and love are hard to find While lust and beauty cloud the mind No one wants to go it alone Ruby lay down your arms tonite I'm not going to fight any more Lovers should not wage war
