Track Name: State of Mine
Climbing over the mountain
Feeling so out of season
Hoping for a moment
Where I can take a deep breath and let it out

Finding all my reasons
Wishing I couldn't see them
Hoping for a moment
That finally puts me in that state of mind

State of mine
I'm looking for that state of mind

I'm forcing all my opinions
I hold back every feeling
Hoping for a moment
Where I'll embrace myself and take a ride

Scratching every surface
Yielding to every purpose
I'm hoping for that moment
That finally puts me in that state of mind

State of mine
I'm looking for that state of mind
Track Name: My Somber Season
I rid so many thoughts
I take a lot of walks
I try to push the silly things aside
I can't keep you around
If I'm always feeling down
I try to think about the things inside

It's my somber season
The voice to my reason
So I'll have to ease into the fall
The coldest of weather
Is around the corner
I'm making my way there to it all

I said a lot of things
That I really didn't mean
But some of them still linger by my side
This time has brought us here
The sadness creeping near
All because my patience has run dry

It's my somber season
The voice to my reason
So I'll have to ease into the Fall
The coldest of weather
Is around the corner
I'm making my way there to it all
Track Name: Nowhere in Sight
Take what you asked for
I'm alright with this emptiness tonight
You slip out the back door
I'm surprised you're nowhere in sight

You're nowhere in sight

Everything's in question
Go find some place to hide while we're seeing what it's like
Every day I'm waiting for your light

But you're nowhere in sight
Nowhere in sight

You're nowhere in sight
You're nowhere in sight
Track Name: Leaving the Valley
Look at me now that I'm free from all the pain inside
Been seeing how my mind thinks
And I don't like what I can find
Done with the south side cause I can't see past the entitled life
Leaving the valley, my high peaks and now I'm feeling so alive

There's not much to say
I'll go away
I won't forget your face

Been so afraid to explain all the ways that we feel inside
Better to quiet, turn away and hang your head than try
Sometimes at night I awake in a place where I don't feel safe inside
All I know is I've gotta go
Time to see what I can find

Not much to say
I'll go away
I won't forget your face
Let's not pretend
This life won't end
Just do your best to embrace
Track Name: Now That I'm Gone
Wanting you to know
Everything I never told you
Look me through the eyes into my soul

My heart has been alone
And I'm feeling like we're strangers
And things have gotten stranger
Now that I'm gone

Now that I'm gone
Do we both belong
In a place where we can't share each others love

Wanting you to own
Everything I never sold you
I'm battling within to gain control
So just leave me alone
Cause I'm speaking out of anger
Now the weight inside my heart will take its toll

It's taking its toll
Cause we're getting older
But the last thing that I want is to dissolve this love
