Track Name: Fingertips
sitting on a train with music in my ears
passing by the same barren trees i have for years
coming home is a blessing
and coming home is a curse as well

a plateau of content is the current state of mind
if i were to leave would it be joy or pain that i
find the jagged peaks of a real life
leaving behind the slow drag of home

the jagged peaks of a real life
leaving behind the slow drag of home

and it all slips away through your fingertips

we've always been the same we've never changed
i'll go to your house and you'll come to mine in the
rain the houses stand far apart
cloudy over our impeccable yard

and it seems the color is drained from all
but your cheeks they are rosy and when did you get so
tall i haven't been here much
i've been leaving behind the slow drag of home

for the jagged peaks of a real life
leaving behind the slow drag of home

and it all slips away through your fingertips...
