Track Name: A Song For David
I'm gonna try and not let you be defined by sorrow
I'm gonna fight to smile when I think your name
Chainsmoke these cigarettes through tomorrow
When every gust of wind feels like a hurricane

And I wake to hoping I dream that phone-call
And I wake to the knowledge you're not there
The corner that we walked by one million times
Would come to be the place that our childhood died
There's heavy hearts in The City tonight

You said we need to live with Energetic Action
You sang songs to work towards a better place
Where love could overcome politics and fashion
Now all I hear is static on the radio waves

I won't waste a single second looking for a reason
I won't wait for an answer that's not there
I try to eat the pain that I feel inside
Drive down to the corner where David died
There's heavy hearts in The City tonight

It's like spinning into gold, every lie that we're ever told
How to turn something hideous into something to behold
But I looked into your Mother and your Father's eyes
I can't begin to think the pain they feel inside
There's heavy hearts in The City tonight

And I wake to hoping I dream that phone-call
And I wake to the knowledge you're not there
I try to eat the pain that we feel inside
Drive down to the corner that David died
There's heavy hearts in The City tonight
Heavy hearts in The City tonight
Heavy hearts in The City tonight
Track Name: Anchors
Let's not conclude this story
I hope this day will never end
Just a sliver of time and comfort
Embracing nothing and talking nonsense with my friends

I swear most times I can't recall
A single good goddamn day, but that's alright
Yeah that's alright
Most times I fake my smiles
But it just don't feel that way tonight

They're the grass under my soles
The water seeping through the holes
The words you feel but never take the time to say
The substance over style
That keeps you laughing all the while
You're the anchors keeping me from drifting away

And the drugs, there were a couple drugs
None were half as strong as the bond shared between us
I've made mistakes, some big mistakes
None of which seem relevant or important today

I've been a fool for far too long
Most if not all my life and that's alright
Yeah that's alright
Most times I fake my smiles
But it just don't feel that way tonight

The holes in my soul and heart
Have been tearing me apart
No time to talk but a thousand things to say
And when the times have got too tough
Your laughter sews me up
You're the anchors keeping me from drifting away

Oceanside down at CRAB park
The sun sets quick and it's nearing dark
Girls walk by in their summer colors and we pay them no mind
Standing in the Vancouver rain
On the corner of 12th and Main
I wish I've found a single place I didn't want to leave behind
I've been running for so long
But could stay for the right reasons
The truth is life is only as good as the folks that we believe in

But the holes in my soul and heart
Have been tearing me apart
No time to talk but a thousand things to say
When the times have got too tough
Well your laughter sews me up
You're the anchors keeping me from drifting away
