Track Name: Boxes
Springtime comes today
A new life found in a land far away
Friends and family are here to celebrate
Unpack your lives as we pack it all away

I’ll pack it in boxes
They’ll pack them in boxes
We pack them in boxes and we leave
All our knickknacks and paintings
Those lamp shades and green things
All labeled in their boxes and they leave

We take all our lives
We’ll take all our lives
Try and tie it down and leave it all behind
I’ll take your plates to remember your face when you’re not here

I’ll pack them in boxes
We’ll pack them in boxes
All packed up in boxes and we’ll leave
All my books and your diplomas
The coffee cups in storage
Oh and all the hats and shoes and shoes and shoes we never wear
And the Christmas lights and reindeer
And the keepsakes from this past year
And all those empty boxes we save for moving day
All packed up in boxes
We pack all those boxes
I’ll pack all those boxes and I’ll leave

What will they say about us when we’re gone?
What will they do with the things I leave behind?

Oh we’ll pack them in boxes
They’ll pack them in boxes
They’ll pack up those boxes and they’ll leave.
All our knickknacks and paintings
Those lamp shades and green things
All labeled in their boxes and they leave

What will they say about us when we’re gone?
Track Name: Fireflies
Searching skies with tired eyes for bottles on the sea
Writes her soul on a page and sends it off to me
Her cheeks they glisten with the tears of a thousand failed tries
I reach into her dreams from mine to wipe them from her eyes

Though I’m far away it’ll be okay

Eyes are closed, minds alive with memories of we
Dreams are cruel, they beckon me with a face I long to see
Our hope it burns like fireflies, it flickers in the night
The dreams we share, searching the air to find our lover’s light

Though I’m far away it’ll be okay

Our hope it burns like fireflies, it flickers in the night
The dreams we share, searching the air to find our lover’s light
Track Name: Stars
Lying awake, looking at the stars
Imagining I am where you are
I sing you to sleep in my head
I sing you to sleep in my head

Coming awake, wishing you were here
So I could lean and whisper in your ear
I saw you in my dreams last night
I saw you in my dreams last night

Maybe this sounds crazy, but I think it's worth a try
What if I wrote words to you and set them in the sky
You will hear a thousand voices, no matter where you are
and know my love for you is like the stars

I just want to hear your voice tonight
I just want to feel your hand in mine

Maybe this sounds crazy, but I think it's worth a try
What if I wrote words to you and set them in the sky
You will hear a thousand voices, no matter where you are
and know my love for you is like the stars
