Track Name: Aurora
I've wandered lone
for longest hour
to ask the eyes with no reply
is just as sour

I see the still
and feel the chill
please understand the light
has left me quiet tonight

Aurora
Save me from the fallen shadows
Pull me out of my dream
Aurora
Wade me through the phantom shallows
Shelter me from the screams

you hear me call
and shine your eyes
blind my heart, linger inside
beneath your skies

an ancient sense
reveals your charm
such a delicate grace
of embrace within your arms

Aurora
Save me from the fallen shadows
Pull me out of my dream
Aurora
Wade me through the phantom shallows
Shelter me from the screams

Shelter me from the screams
That I see in my dreams
Shelter me from the pain
Appear to me in my dreams

Aurora
Save me from the fallen shadows
Pull me out of my dream
Aurora
Wade me through the phantom shallows
Shelter me from the screams
The scream
The scream
Track Name: All She'll Ever Hurt
Yesterday, I wanted to replace everything but your sorrowed face.
Such a beautiful bitch, lapping up the charm.
Impervious, you know she can't be harmed.

She can't tell every time I yell...

She's stepping through the doorway, shattering all of my broken words.
She cuts me like a child, and that's all that she'll ever hurt.

Pink shoes are filling up her floor, and her lips drawn on like a whore.
She paints her hear and lies up in the bed and dances dreams of the things that I once said.

She can't tell every time I yell...

She's stepping through the doorway, shattering all of my broken words.
She cuts me like a child, and that's all that she'll ever hurt.
Track Name: I'm In Love With A Girl (But She Used To Be A Man)
I'm in love with a girl, but she used to be a man. Somewhere in between, she had a change of plans.
I'm in love, I fell in love.

I've got a story that I need to tell about a man and a woman whose love was doomed to fail.
I was walking down the way, Ponce De Leon avenue.
She's fine and she's mine but I didn't even have a clue.

Something's going on.
Feels like something's wrong.
Something's going on.

I'm in love with a girl, but she used to be a man. Somewhere in between, she had a change of plans.
I'm in love, I fell in love.

Strolling down the street in six inch platform shoes, lipstick, fishnets, so so sweet, then she told me the news.

Something's going on.
Feels like something's wrong.
Something's going on.

'cause I'm in love with a girl, but she used to be a man. Somewhere in between, she had a change of plans.
I'm in love, I fell in love.
Track Name: An Hour Ago
She was drunk and she gave me a call.
We talked about the world as it revolved.
The night end glimmered into the vast.
Tell me tomorrow, I'll try to make it last.

Don't give it away, 'cause no one nowhere can explain;
the way I feel, I see you feel the same.
Don't try to deny the funny feeling you hold inside,
I can tell you spell it in your eyes.

Corridor ahead narrows to a sliver space.
Hold your breath above the darkened place.
I don't really know but I think I care.
I still know that there's something else out there.

Don't give it away, 'cause no one nowhere can explain;
the way I feel, I see you feel the same.
Don't try to deny the funny feeling you hold inside,
I can tell you spell it in your eyes.

You seem to see, with your hand in mine, just what we had an hour ago.
