Track Name: Never Been Wrong
You always said I’ve never been wrong
Now you’re seeing
It’s not as though I’ve never been right
Still, you're leaving

Sarah said she’d rather stay in
Feels like sleeping
It’s not so often that I miss something
‘till I’m screaming

You always said it should be easy
To know your reasons
I believed in keeping busy
To hold out even

Never been wrong (x4)
Track Name: Lied to Strangers
I stood out on the street last night
And I lied to some strangers
I gave out in a field last night
And I lied to some strangers

Told them my bedroom
Burned up one night
Told them my sister
Was born too bright for this world
Told them I’ve seen an awful lot
But all I’ve seen is barely a dot on this world

Dreamed of heaven again today
In the basement, in the daylight
I was me but also nothing
And everyone, they loved me

I was starting again
Having seen everything
Twice is enough to reach the end alright
I’d see it again
That awful lot
And it'd all still fit beneath a dot in the sky
Track Name: Carry Away
I saw someone
I didn’t know
I watched dawn land
Shattered on the road

I saw you running
And I caught
My world flooding
Though I knew
I could not carry away

I wrote letters
Could not stand the phone
Life was small then
Smaller than my home

I saw fools run in
And I caught
My world flooding
Though I knew
I could not carry away

There's no room
Here in the light
Plans fall through
Most of the time
All our rules carry away
