Track Name: Forever, For Now
I'm afraid of waking slowly
And of the laces on my shoes
Of all the necessary evils
That stall me from the truth
So are the answers in adrenaline
Or in a peacful state of mind
Oh, forever's going to take me by surprise

Even while I know you're right
You still can't bring me down
Oh, and even as I win the fight
I'd hoped to do it wrong
There's something more worth loving
Than a dream that's half used up
Why, forever you are quite a tricky fuck

It's alarming finding questions
That had answers long ago
With an alter explanation
And no sensible control
If the years change resolution
Oh, imagine how we lie
Forever's likely terrible with time
Track Name: Let Me Have Tonight (Acoustic)
I'm obsessive and forgetful in one
And I'm a little too desperate for love
I spend hours doing nothing
And convince myself I'm doing something here
Something for us

Look at my face, let me see you there
Let me run my fingers through your hair
And truth is there's so much missing
But I forget when we start kissing
It seems
This wasn't meant for us

So put your hands on mine
Feel my body rise
Kiss my lips and eyes
And I'll forget it isn't right
Oh, just let me have tonight

We've come a ways from where we've been
It fell apart don't ask me when
And it was such a cold December
But one look at you and I can remember the warmth
And it was worth the fight

So put your hands on mine
Feel my body rise
Kiss my lips and eyes
And I'll forget it isn't right
Just let me have tonight

Let me touch down on the other side
Of our broken line and see
Where we sacrificed this life
And what we thought was meant to be
And how is it
That you can do the best you can
And still not understand
What happened here

I'd die for another chance at it all
If I knew I could catch us before the fall
Cause I saw us growing old
But there was too much hate
And our hearts went cold
So you see
It's just too late for us

So put your hands on mine
Feel my body rise
Kiss my lips and my eyes
And I'll forget it isn't right
Oh, just let me have tonight
Please let me have tonight
Let me have tonight
Track Name: Pointed Objects
We are two pointed objects
Choosing to collide
In a space made up of blood and fear and
Double homicide
And it's only for the moment we'll look back on years from now
And reminisce on how we're so much wiser from it all
Oh, that's my moment
Forty years from now

A foolish angy word could be the one to bring us down
And it's an awful situation when you're the criminal somehow
Oh, you think you're so big
Cause you stand so tall
But with talk that big
You must feel so small
In that moment I can understand it all

And we build our lives
Without knowing when
Every move a concrete block
We don't want to lift again
And the ones we love
Who we're chasing after now
Either fall out of favor
Or become the ones we talk about

So we'll go back to where we started
Turing how we are today
That little moment where we shifted towards our
Certain kinds of ways
And we'll be carrying our insight
To how it all turns out
So we can hold on to the pieces we don't want to live without
Oh, it's a moment we can only dream about

And we build our lives
Without knowing when
Every move a concrete block
We don't want to lift again
And the ones we love
Who we're chasing after now
Either fall out of favor
Or become the ones we talk about

We're just two pointed objects
Choosing to collide
In a space where so much weighs on
All the things that we decide
And it's only for the moment
Where we abandon what we may
Throw our heads back in laughter
And regret the things we say
Oh, imagine where the night could go
Imagine every way
In that moment we are unafraid
In that moment we remember yesterday
