Gabby Sarmiento There's something about this album that makes it seem nostalgic and eerily familiar. Must admit that even though this was only released five years ago, it is one of my most listened to albums. Favorite track: double word score.

Track Name: seahorses
i'm not sure
where i've gone
when i wrote this song

and i move my hands
through these wires
as i play for you tonight

i'm not all right
god knows i've tried
but i'm not one for suicide

i'm not ok
when you say
it gets better with time

i can't stay, no
not this way
will i be missed someday?

i'm not all right
you're just polite
i know i've lost this fight

and i won't wake up
Track Name: double word score
hole in the street
heart in my hand
back on the heap
i will stand.

and into the wild
back on the heap
said you won't lie
talk is cheap.

when this is right
quarter to nine
walk in the fields
under moonlight.

and i'm not afraid
when are you fine?
although you stay
you are not mine.

end of the night
heart in my hands
wondering how
it will all end.

break of the dawn
into the light
a cold embrace
after the fight.

and with no faith
yea its not right
wondering how
i'm still alive.

and i'm washing in your ocean
and i'm washing in your ocean
and i'm washing in your ocean.
Track Name: new born
I’m afraid of dying now,
Like you want me to,
When the world is at your feet,
You’ll know what to do,

Breaking through but water holds us,
We’ve got so much time and the water, holds us down like babies water holds, us down,
Down again,

Send the ships to sail away,
Strings will break in the middle of June,

Which is worse you wont apologize,
Which is worse, you act like you don’t have the time,

Take me from this hollow state,
Please just take me out,
While the words pour out of me,
Please just take them now,

And we’ve been wrong,
And we’ve been right,
And we’ve been fools,
And we’ve been wise

but i will be the one.
Track Name: losing light
i sit here and watch you go,
starting the beginning to the end,
and as i sit upon these steps,
it plays inside my mind over again,

you said you did what you could,
you said that i'm no good,
you left me in the air,
you never really cared,
you knew that i was lost,
you burn up at any cost,
you must have suddenly realized
that you're with me,

send them to wake me up,
like they did when we were young,
we sit with our legs crossed,
watching fairy tales that we trust,
the battles that began,
we seem to find them safe,
the blankets were our walls to shield, us from the rain,
chairs were rocket ships,
a table was a plane,
we'll fly to disney world,
or up in outer space,

you said you did what you could,
you said that i'm no good,
you left me in the air,
you never really cared,
you knew that i was lost,
you burn up at any cost,
you couldn't look at me,
you wanted to be free,

you said you did what you could,
you said that i'm no good,
you left me in the air,
you never really cared,
you knew that i was lost,
you burn up at any cost,
you didn't even try,
no i'm not dead i'm dying.
Track Name: when our bedrooms were once haunted
god won't come,
if i leave today,
that sounds fair,
as long as i don't have to stay,
i am dead,
on the inside anyway,
give my soul,
to the devil if he'll pay,

cause the ghost in me,
is the ghost in you,
and it wraps itself around your room,

i am tired,
too much fuckin' time,
i haven't lost,
i just lost my mind,
life is hell,
without pitchforks and a fire,
when you ask,
i will tell you i am fine

cause the ghost in me
is the ghost in you
and it wraps itself around your room
Track Name: compass and guns
take me down these winter grounds
i'm quite sure i'm dying
and we've been better friends before this ever happened
it happened anyway

watch the world collapse beautifully
beneath my feet
and don't forget all the things i taught you
when we went out for walks
took rocks and threw them across the street
i'm not down, but i am wandering

cast out
break down
watch your feet and wonder how they get around
do you know where they'll be going
and you take off all your sheets
and wash them clean of me
i will get lost
go cross out my name

go cross out my name
Track Name: fences
i won't wait here,
standing so clear,
i've been unsure my whole life,
and all we've got is time.

to watch new york go,
to san francisco,
we'll find a new home,
what do we know?

you've gotta wonder,
how it all goes,
will you find god?
or get a real job?

we'll watch new york go,
to san francisco,
we'll find a new home,
what do we know?
Track Name: dear daddy
i'm not ashamed not any
i'm not feeling sad
i thank god you were around when things were bad.

i'm not ashamed of what you've done
three lives were saved and i was one
i know mother's sick and leaving
and god knows that she didn't mean it
i hope you understand.

when you hold a son
water turns to blood
i remember watching as you start your day
dress and shine your shoes

i know i've let you down
and never been enough
but i'm not feeling down, no no
i won't let this go, oh no.

i will be your son
long after you're gone
i can't get away from this your blood is in my veins
i hope you understand

i will be your son

long after you're gone.
Track Name: home is here
stay with this life
we've got time

yeah in the right way i'm home
yeah in the right way i'm not at home

covered by night
your inside's bright

yeah in the right way i'm home
yeah in the right way i'm not at home

many have tried
but you've stayed by

yeah in the right way i'm home
yeah in the right way i'm not at home

you're home

this will work, i will write it down.
