Track Name: Can't Raise the Masts
I wish I could say that I were the captain of my soul but I'm not,
I can't raise the masts.
I'm lost in an ocean as deep as my mask,

'Cause I don't know what the price of love is,
Yeah I don't know what it's worth,
But to be broke, to be broke, to be broke, to be broke, to be broke,
It's gotta be worth something.

Three thousand miles and nothing would change,
Unless a roof were over my head that I created myself,
Bookish and laddish, hopeless and fearless,
Three little words they get stuck in my brain,
Taking me places that I don't go easily.

'Cause I still don't know what the price of love is,
Yeah I still don't know what it's worth,
But my broken, broken, broken, broken heart,
It's gotta be worth something.
Yeah to be broke, to be broke, to be broke, to be broke, to be broke,
It's gotta be worth something.
Track Name: Be Ok
Hey there stranger, no I really don't care anymore
That you ran away with that cheap, plastic -
Okay, so maybe a little but what do you expect,
Until you begin to pay back all that debt,

'Cause it's just not that easy looking you in the eye,
When my heart was shattered and it felt like I might die,

One foot in front of the other, and we're making progress, making progress,
One foot in front of the other, it'll all be ok,
One foot in front of the other, and we're making progress, hear me, making progress,
One foot in front of the other, it'll all be ok, be ok.

I won't begin to forget the laughs,
But neither will I when you met her in that caff,
I could pretend that it is all alright,
You know as well as I how I just hate to fight,

I still care that that smile's not for me,
I still care, feels like that's the way it'll always be,

One foot in front of the other, and we're making progress, making progress,
One foot in front of the other, it will all be ok,
One foot in front of the other, there we're making progress, hear me, making progress,
One foot in front of the other, it'll all be ok, be ok.

It still hurts when I see you both in town,
It still hurts, somehow I still want you around, but

One foot in front of the other, then we're making progress, yeah we're making progress,
One foot in front of the other, it'll all be ok,
One foot in front of the other, we're making progress, hear me, making progress,
One foot in front of the other, it'll all be ok, be ok.

It'll all be ok, be ok, all be ok.
Track Name: Comet
I'm not failing, I'm just waiting, after something so beautiful,
I'm not wasting, I'm not fading, I'm just trailing after something so beautiful,
But you don't see the light that escapes from my eyes, burning bright like a comet,
You don't see the light that escapes from my eyes, burning up bright like a comet.

I'm not faking, I do care,
But I'm not waking every day with a glazed stare,
Still you don't see the light that escapes from my eyes, burning bright like a comet,
You don't see the light that escapes from my eyes, burning up bright like a comet.

I'm not wasting, I'm just spending some time with my energies,
Making sure my heart's in the right place.
Track Name: Another Example
You were just another example of pain in my heart
And if I'd loved you you might not have torn me apart,
This is just another example of fault on my behalf
'Cause if I told you would we still be apart

This is not what I wanted, this is not what I wanted for myself
This is not what I wanted, this is not what I wanted for myself

You were just another example of doubt in my heart
'Cause if I'd let you go, if I'd let you know, would we still be apart,
This is just another way of saying should I regret,
and if I really knew you honey would that be a safe bet.

You were just another example yeah,
You were just another example yeah.

This is not what I wanted, this is not what I wanted for myself
This is not what I wanted, this is not what I wanted for myself
This is not what I wanted, this is not what I wanted for myself
This is not what I wanted, this is not what I wanted for myself
