Track Name: Cal
At a dive on the Hill with Noah
He's a friend I'll take to the end
Sipping beers talking records and women
And the hours wasted on them
Start thinking about a girl from Ohio
And the night she showed me some skin
Fell asleep on the floor of her bedroom
Though her sheets were calling me in


I know we haven't talked in a while
I haven't seen your face in three years
Somehow it's hard to pick up the dial
It's so easy to disappear


Drove that long road up to the mountain
In the town where we gave up the ghost
Got as far along as your doorstep
Before my conscience told me to go

Track Name: Heaven
Heaven won't take me back
I know I'm a martyr and I overreact
But I waited in line with the rest of the world
When it came to my time I wasn't brave enough for the thrill

So they turned me on my heels and pushed
And I fell back to Eden and never felt worse
If life was a game I'd been playing it wrong
Burned all of my bridges like I knew all along I would fail

Heaven won't take me back
Never a question it's a matter of fact

When I'm holding your hand on the rocky shore
The salt on our skin kissed by the breath of the ore
There's nothing in this world I've wanted more than to be here

Heaven won't take me back
