Track Name: Breathe with Me
Driving high, driving low
Where will I go tonight?
Frozen time, frozen mind
Traffic passing by, I hear your laughter

Wash my hands of our sin
Still your fragrance on my skin
You grow and grow, so slow
I'm lost inside of me

Breathe with me
Breathe with me
Breathe with me
Then let me go my way

Giving up, giving in
It's not that easy now
Memory broken free
How the light shines through your face

Washed my hands of our sin
Still your fragrance on my skin
You grow and grow, so slow
I'm lost inside of me

Breathe with me
Breathe with me
Breathe with me
Then let me go my way

Track Name: Washing Day
Walking past my lover's house
Bitter taste, it fills my mouth
Too much whiskey, too much smoke
Last night's tears hang on my coat
Now the rain has stopped its fall
Street shines like a mirror ball
Sun comes on, it's just enough
Watch the flowers waking up
It's washing day, it's washing day
Colors run and fade away
It's washing day, it's washing day
Feel the threads like new again

Big machines all in a row
A mother with her child in tow
Change old paper for silver coin
And lose myself in all this noise
Waking from a peaceful rest
Counting down, a minute left
Cotton stops its jog in place
Hold it warm against my face
It's washing day, it's washing day
Colors run and fade away
It's washing day, it's washing day
Feel the threads like new again

What's this in my dungarees?
In my back pocket, curled and creased
My old notebook filled with you
Our secrets now just streaks of blue
It's all a mess, but beautiful
The emptiness a gift to hold
Write a poem with you in mind
And leave the memory behind
It's washing day, it's washing day
Colors run and fade away
It's washing day, it's washing day
Feel the threads like new again’

“Washing Day”
Music & Lyrics by Adam Levy/Amber Rubarth
Track Name: There’s a Light
Never gonna learn my lesson now
Never gonna turn this life around
I know
Oh, lord, I know

Never gonna work for steady pay
Never gonna work the livelong day
I know
Oh, lord, I know

There's a light that shines for me
There's a light that shines for me

Never gonna call this house a home
Never gonna need no telephone
I know
Oh, lord, I know

Never going back to my home town
Never gonna put my anchor down
I know
Oh, lord, I know

There's a light that shines for me
There's a light that shines for me

And when I lose myself at the point of no return
I find a way to laugh at the bridges I have burned, I have burned

Never gonna buy no diamond ring
Never gonna promise anything
I know
Oh, lord, I know

Never gonna tell me I belong
Everything I have is in this song
I know
Oh, lord, I know

There's a light that shines for me
There's a light that shines for me
There's a light that shines for me
There's a light that shines for me

“There’s a Light”
Music & Lyrics by Adam Levy/Geoff Martyn
Track Name: Longest Day of the Year
Friday never turned to Saturday
Maybe all the clocks have lost their way
Spinning round in circles, every which way

Woke up thinking I would find you there
Spoke up—echoes in the empty air
Talking never got us anywhere anyway

Listening for the sound of your footsteps
All that I’m hoping to hear
Ticking like a wound-up time-bomb ’til you appear
This must be the longest day of the year

[ guitar solo ]

Shadows crawl across the kitchen floor
Bottles—pour myself a little more
Wonder, baby, if you just won’t come anyway

Listening for the sound of your footsteps
All that I’m hoping to hear
Ticking like a wound-up time-bomb ’til you appear

Listening for the sound of your footsteps
All that I’m hoping to hear
Ticking like a wound-up time-bomb ’til you appear

This must be the longest day of the year
This must be the longest day of the year
This must be the longest day of the year

“Longest Day of the Year”
Music & Lyrics by Jen Clapp/Adam Levy
Track Name: Never Been Alone Like This
I been sleeping on needles and pins
Feel like a stranger in my own skin
Oh, I never, never been alone like this

Maybe I should turn the radio on
But I fall to pieces when they play that song
Oh, I never, never been alone like this
Oh, I never, never been alone like this

Crying doesn’t do me any good
Just a shadow where my baby stood

Flip through the pages of my little black book
Nothing by strangers wherever I look
Oh, I never, never been alone like this
Oh, I never, never been alone like this
Oh, I never, never been alone like this
