Track Name: Old Bones
Oh, these old bones give way
To the silent seas they go
Line the hulls of silver boats and
Gilmer past the rocky shore
To a place where they can tap the edges
Crack the panes of old glass
Reassemble themselves
And stay that way forever

Oh, she licked the ancient valleys
Raked her fingers through the beaches
Let her hair flow through the mountains
Curled her toes on the ocean floor
Though sheʼd left her earthly body
Its decay was no great matter
For her old bones were no longer
Who she was before

Oh, these old bones give way
To the silent seas they go
Line the hulls of silver boats
Way down past the rocky shore
To a place where they can tap the edges
Crack the panes of old glass
Reassemble themselves in whole again
And stay that way forever
Track Name: This Love
I held my breath when I saw you look at me
I crossed my heart you were the only one I’d see
Now hold me close and walk into the storm
The frost won’t keep me from you
This love will keep us warm

Oh it was written in the fallen autumn leaves
The future held a promise, hope and certainty
A cold wind blew and tried it’s best to warn
The frost won’t keep me from you
This love will keep us warm

A cold wind blew and tried it’s best to warn
The frost won’t keep me from you
This love will keep us warm

Oh this love, this love, this love what
a soft and happy thing
I think, we will, go out through
days of aching
If there, could be, a light through
the end of frozen things
I think, we will, hold out through
days of aching

I held my breath when I saw you look at me
I crossed my heart you were the only one I’d see
Now hold me close and walk into the storm
The frost won’t keep me from you
This love will keep us warm

Oh hold me close and walk into the storm
This love, this love, this love
This love will keep me warm
Track Name: The Flood
Take my hand and walk into the flood
The water takes hold and slowly permeates the blood within you
Once alone I walked upon this shore and held you
The days grew short and slipped away before I asked you

If you would stay
How could you know

If I could only offer something more… a comfort
And brightness in the things we knew before
Like water

Oh, take my hand and walk along the shore
The water reflects the many things we knew before in silver

And we would stay
And we would know
Because our minds
Had made it so

So, take my hand and walk into the flood
The water takes hold and slowly permeates the blood within you

And when the heat of it all was so stifling
And we could not stand up from the great weight of it
And when the heat of it all was so stifling
And we could not stand up from the great weight of it
Track Name: Backbone
I cannot face the weather
But deep are your stormy eyes
I know it’s coming for me
On through the night

It comes on like a poison
It sweeps in like the sea
It floats down like a feather
On through me

Hold on my friend, did I catch you alone
Will this turn you to stone
Are you all backbone

Hold on they said, when there’s no one to blame
There’s just trying to save you so be sure
On you

I don’t know what to bring with me
I don’t know what to see
I cannot face the day
Coming for me

Hold on my friend
Did I catch you alone
Will this turn you to stone
Are you all backbone
