Track Name: By the riverside in the morning
I move ghostlike with dreams spread out on my chest. Hands shaking, heart steady, knowing where I'll go. Days unwind their language, I know that they will take me there. Landscapes left behind, unrepenting. The night shines on these past years, these memories are all are that's left. The world runs right through you and you run out of breath.

I find myself in these old winds, in the forest and the creeks, while we hold hands and walk these streets. Reckless, our youth unknown.

I will hold you close, hold you near, hold you dear.
Track Name: Our reflection stood broken
I see myself grow through all these years, a knot of memories and hopes and dreams. Guess this is how its supposed to be, even though it feels funny and sad.

I feel the wind on my skin, scars bred through laughter and pain, a map that tells where I was and where I will be.

This is is how its supposed to be. Worlds within worlds within worlds.
Will I be who I dreamt I would be?
Track Name: Of tales that I dreamed of
So much time spent worrying about longings that have no place in me. I will not let myself drown. Dreams alight like broken shards. Hands hold tight to northern lights. I know that I will make it.

Bright and calm, soft and quiet. Leave everything behind. I know that we will make it.

I dreamt that we were so strong, full of light, a light in the dark.
Track Name: As dusk fell upon us
Words that promised the world. Days spent in the sun. Nights that spoke of forever, the world held so much hope. Dreams we weaved in the forest, of a future with our better selves. Sparks that burnt in the darkness, fires kindled in us.
Hope strung out like paper lanterns in the sky. All shot down by the lies borne in your heart. Constellations of dreams and wishes have been burnt down to the fucking ground.

No hope, no trust.

Lies they poisoned the water, no one could be saved. When I turned to you, you left me there to die. Now I walk in the darkness, a darkness that's borne in my heart. All the lies, all the fucking lies.

I will burn down all the bridges.
Track Name: We became apparitions
Songs to walk the mountains alone, stories set to enchant the world. I knew that we would set our dreams ablaze, collect the ashes, blur the trails, pack our bags and say farewell. I knew the world would smile when we came, secret laughter to heal our wounds. Friends they ask when I will return, but I cant tell where I am now much less when I will turn my back to days that make my heart so bright, to nights that speak of wanderlust.

Bodies run through landscapes so new, fires burn to light the way. And I knew that we would run through the world, drink the rivers, cross the plains, meet the sea and sail away.

Songs to walk the mountains alone, stories set to enchant the world. I knew that we would set our dreams ablaze, collect the ashes, blur the trails, pack our bags and say farewell. I knew the world would smile when we came.
