Track Name: Almost Do
Mood lighting sets the perfect scene.
It's so inviting that it's deceiving.
So while you're staring at me in the dim of the room
Trying to fake a connection
You'll reach out for the simplest thing to do and tell me what I think is real;
Tell me what you think you feel
'cause you almost do
Yeah, you almost do.

Your hand on mine means so much to me
But it's just how you pass the time while we're driving.
So while we're stuck in traffic halfway up the hill
contemplating a change in direction,
You'll quickly settle for the same old drill and tell me what I think is real;
Tell me what you think you feel
'Cause you almost do, yeah you almost do.
You almost do, yeah you almost do.
Track Name: Tricky
You say "no" and I say "maybe"
You mutter my name and it drives me crazy.
The ride is long, and it's longer now.
I say "now" and you say "later
I say "rock" and you say "paper"
The ride is long, and it's longer now.
So I'll be dreaming and you'll be silent
My heart is thrilled and yours is violent
You'll never know just how well you show that you're
Tricky, tricky, tricky
That's how you like to be
Tricky in the plainest sight of me.

So they'll be believin' and you'll be lyin'
How am I supposed to know when it's time to stop trying?
It's so clear to everybody here
I'll be left 'cause you'll be leaving
You'll think you're sweet while you're deceiving me
You'll never know just how well you show that you're
Tricky, tricky, tricky
That's how you like to be
Tricky in the plainest sight of me.

We're at a standstill
Why are you still standing with me?
Give me a good reason or just please, set me free.
Track Name: The Veil
Waiting for your answer kills me
Your silence just seeps its way in.
If I were a magician I'd make you be there for me before you could leave a hint.
But now I now I know how you're hiding and I think that I understand
That sometimes you need a disguise for how tiring life is from where you stand.
And it's old news now how you'll bring us all down with you 'cause maybe I have figured you all out.

You hurt, I know, I feel it when I'm with you
Your smile is a fraud and your expression is stoned
The veil you wear is exquisite, but I see right through it
You hurt, but I know you mean me know harm.

So does it ever get old trying to fix who you are?
Are you this scared? Are you this unaware that to me you're a work of art?
And it's old news now how you'll bring us all down with you 'cause maybe I have figured you all out.

You hurt, I know, I feel it when I'm with you
Your smile is a fraud and your expression is stoned.
The veil you wear is exquisite, but I see right through it
You hurt, but I know you mean me no harm.
Track Name: The Last Time
Our last conversation wasn't when I thought it would be
If I'd known, I'd have tried to slow it down
And taken it in like it was a part of me; memorized every detail and every sound if it was the last time.
The last time I saw you wasn't when I thought it would be
If I'd known, I'd have tried to cheer you up
And pull you in close so you'd be a part of me and made sure that you knew you had my love if it was the last time.

Oh I would've made you stay longer before I let you go
Oh I would've pulled you in harder so that you would know that it was the last time, the last time.

The last look you gave me wasn't when I thought it would be
If I'd known, I'd have smiled back with all might so all you'd remember was how happy you made me, just in case I missed my chance to say goodbye.
If it was the last time; the last time.

Oh I would've made you stay longer before I let you go
Oh I would've pulled you in harder so that would know that it was the last time
That it was the last time
That it was the last time.
