Track Name: Solemn Star
Sun casting light out by the stairs
I fill my lungs up with the cold, cold air
It's clinging fast to window panes
I turn again and find my shadow's not the same

Day's done now
These too will fade

And when it sets one solemn star
will guide my keys into a freezing car
Wind from the north came howling in
I get this feeling closing doors erasing names

Day's done now
These too will fade

Soon they'll have you tracing lines that never end
I have come to turn away from my old friends
Just take the carefulness bottled up as such
To keep my thoughts away so I won't have to think so much
Track Name: Down Primrose Lane
No sense to wait
though it might come back another day

That I can't tell
Don't make me sad to resign myself

Now I know what you are

Those parting words
All I said and all I've heard

Pale memory
Come around again to cripple me

Now I know what you are

Down Primrose Lane we'll go
