Track Name: Wanted
Start with peace, and see where we'll end up
When we slow down, no one says hurry up
Float around, then whisked away
I'm tired, and you wanted more of me

Start with love, and see where we will grow
Touching skin, begin the natural flow
Dance around, then whisked away
Reckless, and you wanted more of me

With nothing to prove
I'm ashamed without you
I don't love like you
Sorry, I know it's not what you're used to

Start in front and watch us fall behind
Memories and time are not as kind
We unlock, and whisked away
Happiness, you wanted more of me
Happiness, you wanted more of me
Track Name: The Fall
Copy all your clothes
You don't know what you want
And I'll be standing by
You don't have to lie on the floor
Standing still but time
You know we have luck
Farther than we stand
You don't have a plan

And I'll just keep
All my sleep

Sink into regret
And pause all of your dreams
Sit and stare at walls
Think about the fall

And I'll just keep
All my sleep
