Falling Up
This is a victory lap
When the stadium’s empty
This is a love I never knew
But still warms my heart
This is a dream that won’t stop running running running
Even if it never starts

I may be naïve, but I’m trying to be honest
I get lost in my head, but I still get away
I made this far so I just keep on running running running
‘til I know that I’ll find a better way

I see it all like it’s tonight
I can’t get enough
I keep on dancing in the light
I keep falling up

I’m closing my tabs
Yeah, I’m trying to focus
So I might find a voice
Or just something to say
So it might be unique
Or it might be essential
But I get so, I get so carried away

Let ‘em run, let ‘em run
Let ‘em run away
If they don’t come back, then they’re gone to stay
Let ‘em run, let ‘em run
Let ‘em run away
‘Cause the good ones always come back if you wait

I see it all like it’s tonight
I can’t get enough
I keep on dancing in the light
I keep falling up

If you need somebody to carry you up
If you need someone
If you need somebody to carry you up
If you need someone

Try to see it all like it’s tonight
Try can’t get enough
Try to keep on dancing in the light
Try to keep falling up

I see it all like it’s tonight
I can’t get enough
I keep on dancing in the light
I keep falling up

As Long As I Can See
As long as I can see
As long as I can see your face
Even when the lights have all gone down
Even when the crowd is pouring out
As long as

Every night go to work and I say
Say that I don’t mind
There’s a light from an open doorway
Calling me inside

And I’m higher than I’ve ever been
But I’m not the place I want to be
And I’m trying hard to let you in
So I’m showing you the rest of me

As long as I can see
As long as I can see your face
Even when the lights have all gone down
Even when the crowd is pouring out
Long as I can see
As long as I can see your face
Even when the lights have all gone down
Even when the crowd is pouring out

There’s a storm and it’s coming my way
After quiet nights
Getting worn out on lonesome highways
Drive to make it right

And I’m higher than I’ve ever been
But I’m not the place I want to be
And I’m trying hard to let you in
So I’m showing you the rest of me

As long as I can see
As long as I can see your face
Even when the lights have all gone down
Even when the crowd is pouring out
Long as I can see
As long as I can see your face
Even when the lights have all gone down
Even when the crowd is pouring out

And I’m higher than I’ve ever been
But I’m not the place I want to be
And I’m trying hard to let you in
So I’m showing you the rest of me

As long as I can see
As long as I can see your face
Even when the lights have all gone down
Even when the crowd is pouring out
Long as I can see
As long as I can see your face
Even when the lights have all gone down
Even when the crowd is pouring out


Higher
You think you’re gone
But you’re not so low
Yeah, you’re not so far away

I’ve been the one
When you’re money’s spent
And your heads under the waves

Here I am again
A hotel bed in Colorado
I’m just waiting for your call
But it’s not going to come at all

Higher, higher
Oh, I’ll take you higher
Higher, higher
Oh, my love

Higher, higher
Oh, I’ll take you higher
Higher, higher
Oh, my love

You’re a wanted man
But I wanted you to know my name

Don’t push me away, girl
I’m not here to save you
And you don’t need to explain

Here I am again
A hotel bed in Colorado
I’m just waiting for your call
But it’s not going to come at all

Higher, higher
Oh, I’ll take you higher
Higher, higher
Oh, my love

Higher, higher
Oh, I’ll take you higher
Higher, higher
Oh, my love

I’ll raise my glass
I’ll raise my only, lonely glass
I’ll raise my glass

I’ll raise my glass
I’ll raise my only, lonely glass
I’ll raise my glass

Higher, higher
Oh, I’ll take you higher
Higher, higher
Oh, my love

Love Love Love

Higher, higher
Oh, I’ll take you higher
Higher, higher
Oh, my love

Love Love Love

Higher, higher
Oh, I’ll take you higher
Higher, higher
Oh, my love

Higher, higher
Oh, I’ll take you higher
Higher, higher
Oh, my love


Holy War
I want it all
But only for a moment
Heard the call like a memory

I touched the wall
Just to say I’d done it
I climbed the mountain just to see

In these holy wars
Where they ain’t no rest
In these holy wars

In these holy wars
Where you’ll find no rest
In these holy wars

Nothing but fire fire fire
‘til there’s nothing left
Nothing left
Fire fire fire
Into your gun

Nothing but fire fire fire
‘til there’s nothing left
Nothing left
Fire fire fire
Until it’s gone

I saw the sights
Tanks they line the roof
I saw the coast I saw the trees

I heard the cries
Cries looking for truth
But I was always free to leave

In these holy wars
Where they ain’t no rest
In these holy wars

In these holy wars
Where you’ll find no rest
In these holy wars

Nothing but fire fire fire
‘til there’s nothing left
Nothing left
Fire fire fire
Into your gun

Nothing but fire fire fire
‘til there’s nothing left
Nothing left
Fire fire fire
Until it’s gone

Holy war
Holy war

Nothing but fire fire fire
‘til there’s nothing left
Nothing left
Fire fire fire
Into your gun

Nothing but fire fire fire
‘til there’s nothing left
Nothing left
Fire fire fire
Until it’s gone


On My Way
I’m on my way, my way
I’m on my way, my way

I was nobody’s brilliant child
But I’m the oldest living son
And I’ve got such an honest smile
That you’ll forgive me when I’m done
And if I’m gone again awhile
Don’t think me unkind
There’s a million things I wanted
To tell you all in time

(Don’t look)
Don’t look, don’t look, don’t look now
(Don’t look)
Don’t look, don’t look

We were standing on the back porch
Like we did so many times
If we thought this was enough
We wouldn’t have to say goodbye

I’m on my way, my way
I’m on my way, my way
And I’m losing track of all the nights and days
I’m on my way, my way

And the light will lead you on
And the light will lead you on
And the light will lead you on
And the light will lead you on

I’m on my way, my way
I’m on my way, my way
And I’m losing track of all the nights and days
I’m on my way, my way


Cold
When you wake up
Do you still see her face?
Do you toss and you turn
Like the will of the world is replaced

‘Cause it’s colder now then it’s ever been
And you’re holding on to what’s left of him
And I know you’re here but oh so far away

Oh
Do you love her
Oh
Don’t Lie
Oh
Do you love her
Oh
Tell me one more time

One more

When you look back
Will you try to erase
Like I’m just your
Just your final mistake

‘Cause it’s colder now then it’s ever been
And you’re holding on to what’s left of him
And I know you’re here but oh so far away

Oh
Do you love her
Oh
Don’t Lie
Oh
Do you love her
Oh
Tell me one more time

One more
One more

Wait up
For your old lover
Wait up
For your old love
Wait up
If you still love her
Wait up
For your old love

Oh
Do you love her
Oh
Don’t Lie
Oh
Do you love her
Oh
Tell me one more time

One more
One more


The Old House
Said to get my things
We gotta go right now
While it’s still around
Before they tear it down

Like pilgrims packed into a borrowed car
We didn’t go too far
Just to the years before

We’re the strangers that we were
Remembering our choices
At the house we used to live
Where the memories feel like voices

It’s like they’re calling your name on the way back home
You’ll never get over it
It’s like they’re calling your name on the way back home
You’ll never get over it

Overgrown and wrapped in vines
Under the same old stars
And power lines

There with everything that we left behind
Boxes and lines
Like it was ours to find

We’re the strangers that we were Remembering our choices At the house we used to live Where the memories feel like voices

It’s like they’re calling your name on the way back home
You’ll never get over it
It’s like they’re calling your name on the way back home
You’ll never get over it

They’re calling your name
You never
They’re calling your name
You never
They’re calling your name
You never
They’re calling your name
You never
It’s like they’re calling your name on the way back home
You’ll never get over it
It’s like they’re calling your name on the way back home
You’ll never get over it
It’s like they’re calling your name on the way back home
You’ll never get over it


Strung Up in Lights
From up here we’re the skyline
From up here we’re the sights
And someday they might wonder
What life meant from these heights

Hopes a devil when you raise ‘em
Raise ‘em up this high
But you know it’s a devil regardless
So you might as well try

So breathe now
Away from it all
Look down
You won’t fall fall fall

I’ve seen every city
I’ve seen every city twice
But no city looked so good
As this one does tonight

It’s alive
And it’s wild
And all strung up in lights

And all those girls look pretty down there
Pretty in the lights
But nobody broke my heart like these girls will tonight

I’m alive
And I’m wild
And all strung up in lights

So breathe now
Away from it all
Look down
You won’t fall fall fall

So breathe now
Away from it all
Look down
You won’t fall fall fall

Doesn’t matter where you hide
Doesn’t matter what you run to
Look down
But you won’t fall

Doesn’t matter where you hide
Doesn’t matter what you run to
Look down
But you won’t fall fall fall

So breathe now
Away from it all
Look down
You won’t fall fall fall


Seth Jordans
We were cheap seats
And we were shared moves
Sharp turns and borrowed bikes
We used to think we had it pretty good with the secondhand life

We were heads down
As long as we could
Short loves and shorter fights
And we would sing, sing around the city on the corners at night

I tried to find you
They say you’re moving on
I tried to find you

Will I love this city when you’re long gone
(City when you’re long gone)
(City when you’re long gone)
Will I love this city when you’re long gone
(City when you’re long gone)
(City when you’re long gone)

All the scenes
Together make something
All the scenes
Together make something new
All the scenes
Together make something better than it was

We would be together ‘til the morning
We would be together just to prove our youth
We would think it’s better in the morning
Better than it was

I tried to find you
They say you’re moving on
I tried to find you

Will I love this city when you’re long gone
(City when you’re long gone)
(City when you’re long gone)
Will I love this city when you’re long gone
(City when you’re long gone)
(City when you’re long gone)
If I wait for you here alone
If I wait for you here alone

They’re inside my head saying
Don’t look over, don’t look over
They’re inside my head

They’re inside my head saying
Don’t look over, don’t look over
They’re inside my head

I tried to find you
They say you’re moving on
I tried to find you

Will I love this city when you’re long gone
(City when you’re long gone)
(City when you’re long gone)
Will I love this city when you’re long gone
(City when you’re long gone)
(City when you’re long gone)
If I wait for you here alone
If I wait for you here alone


Heartless Come Around
All the miles I’ve done I’ve left behind
Those left to come keep me alive
There’s some good I’ve found from living blind
Or how I learned to love the lie

I missed a few good nights with a few good friends
I let some right ones out and some wrong ones in
I let a few good flames die in the wind
And I’m learning to begin

I’ll come around, come around when it’s over
We’ll take it all, take it all from here
I’ll come around, come around when it’s over
We’ll pick it up and take it all from here

Spent way too long selling myself short
Took it all too far, took it all to heart
Spent way too long thinking this could work
Learned that some good love ends in reverse

I missed a few good nights with a few good friends
I let some right ones out and some wrong ones in
I let a few good flames die in the wind
And I’m learning to begin

I’ll come around, come around when it’s over
We’ll take it all, take it all from here
I’ll come around, come around when it’s over
We’ll pick it up and take it all from here

If I started it over, would I get it right?
If I started it over, would I get it right?
I don’t know how I’m going to end tonight
I’ll come around, come around when it’s over
We’ll take it all, take it all from here
I’ll come around, come around when it’s over
We’ll pick it up and take it all from here


This Time
Oh my god where have you been?
The sun’s coming up and it’s 5 am
Leave my keys I need my car
How’d things ever get this far?

If you need love, go find love
But don’t drag me down this hole
If you need love, go find love
But you won’t drag me down no more

This time I’m taking my, this time I’m taking
This time I’m taking my, taking my own advice
This time I’m taking my, this time I’m taking
This time I’m taking my, taking my own

How many times did I take you back?
How many times did I take you back?

Every time you swear you’ll change
(Change)
This scene always ends the same
(Same)
Least I know, I’m out the door
(Door)
I can’t take it anymore
(More)

If you need love, go find love
But don’t drag me down this hole
If you need love, go find love
But you won’t drag me down no more

The sun’s up, I see your face
(How did it get this far?)
The sun’s up, I see your face
(I told myself this time no)
The sun’s up, I see your face
(How did it get this far?)
The sun’s up, I see your face
(I told myself this time no)

This time I’m taking my, this time I’m taking
This time I’m taking my, taking my own advice
This time I’m taking my, this time I’m taking
This time I’m taking my, taking my own

How many times did I take you back?
(How did it get this far?)
How many times did I take you back?
(I told myself this time no)

Saving Time
I was hiding in the back room
Going nowhere too soon
Wishing I was anywhere at all
Working on my regrets
Studying the footsteps coming down the hall

You said you’d only tell me one more time
Said you’d only tell me one more time
You said you’d only tell me one more time
Like I don’t even, don’t even know

Years they fly, days stay low
But only the waves will take you home
Years they fly, days stay low
But only the waves will take you home

Lost all of our old plans
Found a heart in your hands
Again I’m learning how to fall
Making up for lost time
Saying all my best lines when I call

You say you’ll always tell me one more time
(One more time)
You say you’ll always tell me one more time
You say you’ll always tell me one more time
(One more time)
Like I don’t even, don’t even know

Years they fly, days stay low
But only the waves will take you home
Years they fly, days stay low
But only the waves will take you home

I never even liked it
Didn’t want to fight it
I let go
I never even liked it
Didn’t want to fight it
I let go

Years they fly, days stay low
But only the waves will take you home
Years they fly, days stay low
But only the waves will take you home
