Track Name: Smoke & Mirrors
Smoke & Mirrors

You were not what I expected
Aren't we all a little less and more
We set aside preconceptions
I fell for what you sold me
Oh

Was it just smoke and mirrors
Did you really care for me
After all the benefits of all the doubts
There was nothing left to see

We cling so hard to the mistake
Simply 'cause it took so long to make
Hide behind self-righteous truth
When the one who chose to ghost was you

Was it just smoke and mirrors
Did you really care for me
After all the benefits of all the doubts
There was nothing left to see

You turn the night, you fling your words like darts
Saw behind the guise, you've missed your mark
So paint your picture of what I am not
While we disagree
Agree to disagree
Yeah, we disagree on what this was

This was not what I expected
Track Name: Longing (Fernweh)
Longing (Fernweh)

I want to know you, I want to see you
With your guard down before we go
Tell me your stories and I will listen
To each word you say, my hand's to hold

We are not just flesh and bones
There is something in our soul
I just want to wake to you
Rest in knowing the search is through

I will love you
"It's not that simple" is the biggest lie we have been told
I will like you
We can choose this even when fear has taken hold

We are not just flesh and bones
There is something in our soul
I just want to wake to you
Rest in knowing the search is through

Share your life with me and spend your time with me
That is the only thing
That I need
Track Name: Sagittarius
Sagittarius

When the skies go dark, that's the hardest time
The days are full, the push and the pull
Of the work to build a life

But when it gets so quiet, I can't help but have you on my mind
I pretend we go back again
Color in the black and white

Teach me to omit the good so I can switch my heart to my head
'cause I remember your words
And I cut myself on all you said

I opened up my heart, you tried to make me feel small
I know your body, the way you take your coffee
But I'm not sure you let me in at all

You turned on the lights, so your shadow would make you seem tall
Come close, no, not so close
You'd never let yourself fall

(When the skies go dark, that's the hardest time)
Track Name: Little One
Little One

Little one, go to sleep
Dream of wondrous things you will see

Little one, rest your eyes
Let your heart know it's alright

We waited for you
And we prayed for you
We longed for you
Since before you were born
We've chosen you
And we know you
Will be loved
All the days of your life

Little one, you are love
In our hearts we keep you with us

Little one, let the sun
Be the reason that you wake

We waited for you
And we prayed for you
We longed for you
Since before you were born
We've chosen you
And we know you
Will be loved
All the days of your life
