Track Name: Piggybacks
Piggybacks

Put your weight into me
Put your weight into me

You're heart has been still for so long
Like an owl staking a prey, I'd be foolish
To slip on your words and
Give you mine

You'll be careful and be sure not to break it
It will shatter like an antique vase
But for now let me hold you like you
Belong to me

Put your weight into me
Put your weight into me

And you tell me you're no good with words
Shielding your face from the sun
You glance at the ground
And won't take what you've earned

Like a sheepish child concealing a secret
Only to be ratted out
But your dream ridden eyes cut me scissors
And I know
Whatever the threat, I'll go
Whatever problems arise, I'll still go
I'll pack up all of your worries and fears
I can assure you when you're with me
It will all disappear so...

Put your weight into me
Put your weight into me

I've decided to let you know
I would prefer you were close
My gestures are subtle and serene
While some are not so

I don't intend for this feeling to last
I understand if you must go
But I would predict the best is
Yet to come
Track Name: The End of the Day
The End of the Day

Don't tell me because I know what you'll say
Don't pretend you'll feel this way in a year
But my lust for you swells like twisted joints
Don't pretend you'll feel this way in a year

All things grow old
And my feelings for you will too

Inseparable like twins hooked at the hip
Don't pretend you'll feel this way in a year
All I want is to keep you close and by my side but
Don't pretend you'll feel this way in a year

All things grow old
And my feelings for you will...

Bloom, whenever times are right
But like all plants and flowers they too will wilt and die

Don't suspect it's in the works
Don't suspect I've changed at all

All things grow old
And my feelings for you will
Build and descend
Crumble and fade too
