Track Name: Strange Summer
Strange Summer


It's been a strange summer, with you not around
Been such a strange summer, sun ain't goin' down

Not just the empty bed, not just the empty house
I miss the way you touch me when you aren't around

I know you miss me too, but we gotta hold on tight
If I could close my eyes, I could dream of you at night

It's been a strange summer, with you not around
Been such a strange summer, sun ain't goin' down

I miss your sparkling eyes, I miss your sweet, sweet smile
I can't forget about you across these lonely miles

If we close our eyes, we can feel each other near
But when we open them, we always disappear

It's been a strange summer, with you not around
Been such a strange summer, sun ain't goin' down
Track Name: Something About Leaving
When all those minds are falling, like the leaves are from the trees
In October's winds they fail and yet they still succeed
Because they always come back, so new and so green
How I wish that we could grow back new every spring

Throw your life into those boxes and head on down the tracks
It's always someone's time to go so don't look back.

There's something about leavin' when you have no choice
We'll never be there again, (how) we lost our voice
And she's somewhere better, you know this in your mind
Still your heart is sayin' you left her behind

Every place we go now, won't be the same
Any place we go now, might feel unsafe
But we'll soon get comfortable and forget we have to change
When the leaves fall from the trees we'll do it all again

Throw your life into those boxes and head on down the tracks
It's always someone's time to go so don't look back.

There's something about leavin' when you have no choice
We'll never be there again, (how) we lost our voice
And she's somewhere better, you know this in your mind
Still your heart is sayin' you left her behind
Track Name: Hungry Wolves
Take a walk with me, down to the ocean's edge
The sand under our feet was once a mountain peak, 'cus
What crumbles at the base, will soon fall to the ground
If it takes a million years, I hope you'll stick around

Hungry Wolves - outside your window
Hungry Wolves - outside the door
Hungry Wolves - they're comin' after you
Hungry Wolves - outside your strip mall
Hungry Wolves - outside your school
Hungry Wolves - we gotta push on through

You're waiting for a spark to ignite your heart again
A spark under a tree can burn a forest down, but
The fire only burns 'til it runs out of fuel
I guess that that makes two of us

Hungry Wolves - outside your window
Hungry Wolves - outside the door
Hungry Wolves - they're comin' after you
Hungry Wolves - outside the strip mall
Hungry Wolves - outside the school
Hungry Wolves - we gotta push on through

Maybe we should live above the clouds so high
We'd see the sun all day and all the stars at night
It's just a fantasy, I know, it's just a fantasy

Hungry Wolves - outside your window
Hungry Wolves - outside the door
Hungry Wolves - they're comin' after you
Hungry Wolves - outside your strip mall
Hungry Wolves - outside your schools
Hungry Wolves - we gotta push on through

Hungry Wolves - outside the nightclub
Hungry Wolves - outside your pools
Hungry Wolves - they're comin' after you
Hungry Wolves - outside the motel
Hungry Wolves - outside our door
Hungry Wolves - we gotta push on through
