Track Name: One Million Stars
As green as gold
as white as a flag
Waving like a tattered rag
The night we danced
I held you close
Leaning like a rotten post

Across the night
One million stars
Stuck inside an empty bar
I know that you are somewhere on this town
I'm praying that you'll come around

But the stars over Sombrio
are fading into daylight
Take away my fears
before you disappear tonight

I could not sleep
for the amphetamines
Tell me life is but a dream
The memories
I loved them so
So sad to let 'em go

But the stars over Sombrio
are fading into daylight
Take away my fears
before you disappear tonight
Track Name: Everything is Blue
Everything is blue
Am I fading away from the red-eye mid day groove?

Everything is blue
The sky, the hills, the ocean too
I think I’ve figured out what I wanna do

So, please don't let me fall in love
Please don't let me fall in love.

Everything is blue
Like a photo filter on the surface of Neptune
My heart is forming into an ice volcano

Everything is blue
I was finding my way, and it led me to you
Just when I think I’ve figured out what I wanna do

So, please don't let me fall in love
Please don't let me fall in love.

Is it just a reflection of what’s hanging up above?
All the things you’ve been dreaming of,
At once become enough

So, please don't let me fall in love
Please don't let me fall in love.
Track Name: July 13
July 13,
I was leaving the show, saw the highway patrol.
I turned for the harbour instead.
They flashed me the blue and red.

I've been chasing the moon,
but it moves in the dark and I've lost my spark.
I wanna sink in a bottomless bed.
I went downtown instead.

And I can see your house from here.
Heart attack in the rear view mirror.

Who let you out tonight?

July 13,
I was leaving the show, now they won't let me go.
My heart has been under attack,
Waited too long to turn back.
So when it's gone don't look behind,
Forget all the scenes on a reel in your mind.
Forget the pain that couldn't last.

And I can see your house from here.
Heart attack in the rear view mirror.

Who let you out tonight?

A line of questions, I was fed.
His voice was grave, my rights were red.
And I just wanna sleep in my own bed.
I just wanna sleep.

Who let you out tonight?
Track Name: Any Day Now
Left me behind at the service station
Drop me a line when you get back home
I sure don’t mind if you keep me waiting
I know you’re in a mind just to let me go

After all the mornings,
I remember those much more than the nights
Any day could be your leaving
How you love to say, “I might”

Any day now

I took the train back, from the service station
Raisined from the rain, and it felt like home
I sure don’t miss all the streetlights blinking
Thinking I’d be fine just to let them go

After all the warnings
After all the bad advice
Any day could be my leaving
How I love to say, “I might”

Any day now
