How to Save a Life

Length: 4:22

Release: 2005

Opening Lyrics:

Step one, you say we need to talk
He walks, you say sit down, it’s just a talk
He smiles politely back at you
You stare politely right on through
Some sort of window to your right
As he goes left, and you stay right
Between the lines of fear and blame
You begin to wonder why you came
Where did I go wrong?
I lost a friend
Somewhere along in the bitterness
And I would have stayed up with you all night
Had I known how to save a life

You Found Me

Length: 4:01

Release: 2009

Opening Lyrics:

I found God on the corner of First and Amistad
Where the west was all but won
All alone, smoking his last cigarette
I said, “Where you been?” He said, “Ask anything”
Where were you when everything was fallin’ apart?
All my days were spent by the telephone
That never rang and all I needed was a call
That never came to the corner of First and Amistad
Lost and insecure
You found me, you found me
Lyin’ on the floor
Surrounded, surrounded
Why’d you have to wait?
Where were you? Where were you?
Just a little late
You found me, you found me

Over My Head (Cable Car)

Length: 3:56

Release: 2005

Opening Lyrics:

I never knew
I never knew that everything was falling through
That everyone I knew was waiting on a cue
To turn and run when all I needed was the truth
But that’s how it’s got to be
It’s coming down to nothing more than apathy
I’d rather run the other way than stay and see
The smoke and who’s still standing when it clears
Everyone knows I’m in
Over my head, over my head
With eight seconds left in overtime
She’s on your mind, she’s on your mind

Never Say Never

Length: 4:16

Release: 2009

Opening Lyrics:

Some things we don’t talk about
Rather do without and just hold the smile
Falling in and out of love
Ashamed and proud of, together all the while
You can never say never
While we don’t know when
But time and time again
Younger now than we were before
Don’t let me go
Don’t let me go
Don’t let me go
Don’t let me go
Don’t let me go
Don’t let me go
Picture, you’re the queen of everything
Far as the eye can see under your command

Look After You

Length: 4:26

Release: 2005

Opening Lyrics:

If I don’t say this now, I will surely break
As I’m leaving the one I want to take
Forgive the urgency, but hurry up and wait
My heart has started to separate
Oh, oh
Oh, oh
Be my baby
Oh, oh
Oh, oh
Oh, oh
Be my baby
I’ll look after you
There now, steady love, so few come and don’t go
Will you won’t you, be the one I always know?
When I’m losing my control, the city spins around
You’re the only one who knows, you slow it down
