Track Name: The Quiet Inside
instrumental
Track Name: The Noise Outside
lately lately lately
i've been tired
there's so many people to meet
in the city tonight

and i'm frankly grateful, hateful
every time
there's so many things i'd like
to do with my life

and it wakes me up
when i find you lying there
street light in your sweat-soaked
matted hair
and the noise outside says it's time
we got out of here.

and a night is a night is a night is
a year gone by
and if my mom could only
see me now

and we're waiting waiting like candy
on a shelf
hoping for the rent
to pay itself

and it wakes me up
when i find you lying there
sun light in your sweat-soaked
matted hair
and the noise outside says it's time
we got out of here

and the grass is still green in the spring
flowers will still come out
no matter how hard the winter's been
no matter how much we've been torn apart.

and lately lately lately i've been tired
but there's so many people to meet
in the city tonight
Track Name: When it's all Over
So much easier to let go
than hold on
so much easier to let it grow
than break down

This is our goddamn war
and when it's all over
I won't be so sad she said
I won't be so sad anymore

So much easier to hold on
than let go
So much easier to break down
then let grow

When it's all over
i won't be so sad she said
i won't be so sad she said
Track Name: The Old Railroad Bridge
Took the path that led up
to the old railroad bridge
easier to leave up than tear down

There's no use for this now
City can't find a way
out or in or through
a soft northern view

Spanning side to side
this train is long ago passed
There's nothing left but steel and ghosts and

What was and will never be
There's no use for this now
out or in or through
a soft northern view

a soft northern view
Track Name: A Short Pier
includes recitation of "There Will Come Soft Rains" by Sara Teasdale
