Track Name: Airports
So it begins

And I can feel your heart
Beating in my hands
We were meant to be,
Yeah, we were meant to be

Rainy afternoons
And sunny hotel rooms
Lying in your arms
Lying in your arms,

Alone, but full of hope
The thrill of flight, the fear of flying

Now the seasons change
And I can feel your heart
Changing in my hands
Changing in my hands

Winter has her way
And I can see your eyes
Are freezing up like mine
Are freezing up, like

Strangers in the aerobridge
Pretending not to see each other

So many airports
Baby, we were going nowhere fast
Track Name: Saboteur
You put the hammer to the nail
And closed the coffin on yourself
You built your boat without a sail
And drilled the holes to sink it well
You turned your tires toward the rail
You took the poison off the shelf
And there was nothing I could do to save you
But to save myself

I can't help you now

You set the fire to your house
And watched it crumble on itself
You cut the hands that tried to help
Until there was nobody else
You put the tape over your mouth
You locked the door to your own cell
And there was nothing I could do to save you
But to save myself

I can't help you now
Track Name: This House
This house was built on water
This house was built on sand
This house was built without love
This house can hardly stand

It doesn't matter how you frame it
It doesn't matter where it goes
All the windows have been broken
Looks like nobody is home, is Home

This house was built on water
This house was built on sand
This house was built without love
This house can hardly stand

Put the boards on every window
Put the locks on all the doors
Take whatever you can salvage
No one lives here anymore

And soon enough, the rain will come
And wash this house away
I will be there, looking on,
Remembering the day this house was Home
Track Name: Narcissus
It was never about me
I was water, reflecting
You don't even know yourself
Track Name: Darling
Pull me in, into you
Leave the quiet to this room
Make a whole out of two
Darling, I know what to do

Those days that turned into years
Those words that fell on deaf ears

Thought the line had long been drawn
Thought my chances all were gone
You appeared out of the blue
Darling, I know what to do

Those days that turned into years
Those words that fell on deaf ears
Those hands with nothing to hold
That heart of mine didn't know
It was waiting for you

Oh, what a fool
I was then, to think I knew
Those wandering eyes
Thought they'd seen everything
But they were waiting for you
Track Name: S.I.C.
(for Sara)

I can see your face
I can hear your voice
I can feel those summer days

I can read your words
I can feel your heart
I can taste those summer days

But where are you, now?

When the lights go dark
When the silence comes
I will meet you in my mind

But where are you, now?
Track Name: Far & Wide
I don't know how deep
The well runs in my heart
Drop another penny in the dark

I don't know how far
My tired legs can walk
Take another breath and start the climb

I don't know how high
My hopes have flown themselves
Send another signal to the sky

And hope that I find
What I'm looking for, in time
