You sound like a hillbilly."

Track Name: 25
The surface value doesn't change
His words and smile are exactly the same
But see what it takes to break
As you cast off another line

You find yourself in awkward space
Too close to become estranged
He knows what it takes to fail
As you fall down again

It's not like you had a chance
It's not like you could change the circumstance
It's not like you had turned the steering wheel
It's not like you could change the way he feels

He promised one December day
I'll never let this happen again
You can choose the friends you trust
But you can't choose where your love turns up

Chances are it's in-between
And the unrequited reappears
You'd think after twenty years
That the childish games would stop

It's not like you had a chance
It's not like you could change the circumstance
It's not like you had turned the steering wheel
It's not like you could change the way he feels

What you want is never what he's got
Because what he's got is never good enough
Track Name: Sea Notes
I am just a dull blade
I scratch against your skin
It's not as simple as you think
You'll never let me in
Numbers don't quite add up
The pieces do not fit
Another game you've played so well
I don't think I can win

But you
You see it differently
And that's so unclear to me
When you live in secrecy

I was just a ringing
Unanswered in your ears
Might not have been so loud
Had you not kept me so near
You could have saved us
So much precious time
Didn't need a grapevine
To tell me you'd never be mine

But you
You see it differently
And that's so unclear to me
When you live in secrecy
And you
You walked a different way
Wrote down a different name
Had nothing more to say

Cut me away
Cast me astray
Bend the truth when I misconstrue
