Track Name: Welcome To The Night
Welcome to the night
Welcome to a strange affair
Creeping through the blinds
Blink and you’ll be there

Young crime, this isn’t a ballet
I know you only came here to play
But we’re entwined
Smile and say the lines

Lost tomorrow in this crowd
Under the waves and into her arms
Just found that southern charm
suddenly on my way

You let it rust
Ignored all the signs
I know all your schemes
Remember they were mine

Left me here
Hanging on the line
Tomorrow could be different
But you’ll never find the time
Track Name: Myth To Many
Never thought you’d peak so early
My envy couldn’t read the tell

But I don’t live here
So I don’t see you around
we mostly left town

Back at Fletcher you were everything
slept with all those debutantes and made ID’s (for free)
and saved me from being at home

Myth to many
You gave us hope
But borrowed all your dreams
Living on smoke
Myth to many
No one fixes legacies
and yours just broke

Called last minute
Like you used to do
Feel like strangers
Barely recognize you

New money changing hands
Old cotton doesn’t cut it
(You can't win)

All the beach house parties coming back
Was it even really owned by your Dad?
Could be, eventually – we never asked

Let it go - you're the only one

Two can always fight
But two can’t win
(You can't win)
