Track Name: Swear
Pushed by crowds, pulled by vows
A twisted flame that will rise again
Some wayward calls, some hard nights fall
Some laid down truths, the silent rules

Off this road we've never strayed
Times were left for dead
I watched in pain while you hurt too
We hurt eachother we never knew
I never tried to make you cry
And I swear never lose you again

Falling plates, hold then wait
Shoulders that strain for release again
But here you are, in this golden light
The distance has gone we are one tonight

There's a moment to come to shatter the doubt
Some moments in life can bite hard
Still lessons to hear though you've covered your ears
But a moment will come, it will come

Off this road, we've never strayed
Pulled together, pulled apart
Lost in nights, lost in days
But I swear I'll never lose you again
If you swear you'll never lose me again
Track Name: if
If all you are here for is comfort
If all you are here for is need
If all you have come for is someone to blame
Then I'm pulling out of this game

If all you can see are the faults
If all you can hear are the cries, cries
If all you can feel is joy in the pain
Then I'm pulling out of this game

The remains of our calling
Can't keep us from falling
If all you can feel is joy in the pain
Then I'm pulling out of this game

If all of your willing is caution
If all of your freedom is gone, gone
If none of your wishes are what I became
Then I'm pulling out of this game

The remains of our calling
Can't keep us from falling

If you feel like you're constantly sinking
If you feel like you dwell in your past
If you feel like your kisses are smothered in shame
Then I'm pulling out of this game
