Track Name: April 6 (Humble Wind)
she's far away escaping me astray from my path I won't do the math
I don't want to see
how they sway in her wake her force so strong
it pulls them along its claimed a vortex in my soul
Oh I don't feel so whole I desire her change
Without I'm standing strange

When she'd lift me up
with ease I'd feel her breeze that was my chance to save
to capture her in phrase

but it's always lacking
that tingling sensation only she brings to me
I end up flailing, concealing the connections I seek

Yet when we greet I still feel I can fly
suddenly I'm incomplete I fear she's passed me by

she said she is illusion nothing more than empty air
that it was really him from afar that caused her motions to stir
that I should be aware not to expect her for long
just trapped in the atmosphere, locked in his complex: a ceaseless cycle hypnotizes

its the sum of my fears he's pulling her away
she's less willing to sway says I'll become detached
I'll fall prey to the wrath so fast on her path

she left before I'd catch on reaching out I'm chasing doubt
I cease to face conclusions Falling from her flow
the potential lies unknown perpetually I wait here
Scanning for a sign of our wills to realign
the future remains unclear
Track Name: Aim High
So what if I try-try-tried to tell you
all the time before I thought to show up all of it
I spent moving towards you from far away
I felt a tug
it pulled
but all that I did do was write down
what I'd attempt to say to you
riding in your gaze
In a haze
I felt the days as they passed me
phased by the way the time apart would grow
impassioned me to flow trailing as you'd go

If you'd listen for a moment
I couldn't quite convey what you really mean to me I just spit it out in a second when you said to me that it was the end

So what's the use with all these rhymes when my longing feels like a crime?

in a flurry as I hurried I felt it blur
the truth I fear now lies
beneath, unknown, profound, and now
its buried like lost treasure If you should decide to seek it out for proof if you should decide to see if I'm worth the use I drew a crudely depicted map from when we first began to split in our path

If you'd listen for a moment
now that I've taken a chance to breath
I couldn't cope when you said it was broke The very thing I was striving to mend

So selfishly I hid behind my fears
couldn't break my way through the barrier or climb
now I'm still struggling with my refracted truth,
I've compacted subtle ties into a mine of diamonds

It's made an impression in my view but what's the use I'm confused
a recluse seems somethingʼs loose
I tend to lose
You're my muse
that's the news I'm consumed
Our views they're skewed
I never told you so you thought I let you go
Track Name: Nostalgia & The Architect
You acted as if we'd be fine
just like we'd get along
if that's the barren truth
then there's no purpose to this song
you promised things beyond belief
I didn't ask for proof
well I fell for the fantasy you drew

did you forget
what you once said it meant
was it all just in the moment

yeah I was moved by what we had
we played our quirky beats
and then we stopped to rest
must have got accustomed to the scene
I carried it in melodies
but I just didn't see
i couldn't tell how much you must have craved a harmony

so you can go
just forget
if it really didn't mean that much
you never took the time
how could I have felt the punch

but I don't dare
disbelieve in what we shared
so why would I go and try to clear the air
When I just can't give up on how much I cared

with nostalgia I made walls
here my architecture falls

see now I'm tryn' to move on with these songs that seem amiss
where I just can't help listing all the things I never risked
between us now we share a gap
I can't help feeling phased
when I see that you're so nourishing
seems the way I swayed I pissed it all away
wonder would you have stayed
if I came out true and delivered how you moved my means
Oh I let it slip between my grips
our timeless rhyme the ways I pined its passed on by
