about

A huge, warm thank you to all for taking the time to listen.
To my amazing parents who made me kind and loving.
To Shaun Day, an incredible engineer and mixer to work with.
To Andrew Jones, who brought it home from miles away.
To Jasmine Lin, who took the image in my head and made it spring to life.
To Stevie, who sat beside me on the windowsill and listened to me play.
And to Trevor Marcotte, my best friend and producer, without whom this wouldn’t exist...
I hope I always lay where your heartbeat meets my own.
- Delaney

Track Name: Meets My Own
If my world didn’t turn before,
it sure as hell is turning now
If I’m spinning and I’m lost, not a chance to be found
I’ll be waiting for you to bring me home.

A life without a vision of the future
Stuck on the past wrongs I’ve made
Redemption isn’t promised so I’m buried in my head
I’ll be waiting for you to bring me home.

I’ll be waiting for the days when life is simple
A candle burning, dinner on the stove
And I realize that all I’ve ever wanted
Is laying where your heart beat meets my own.

If the hazy days of summer bleed into the fall
And the earth keeps it’s color and my pride,
I’m wandering the roads without direction
I’ll be waiting for you to bring me home

When the last light fades from my horizon
And the darkness starts creeping upon on my soul
I’m at the edge of a cliff of my own making
i’ll be waiting for you to bring me home.

I’ll be waiting for the days when life is simple
A candle burning, dinner on the stove
And I realize that all I’ve ever wanted
Is laying where your heartbeat meets my own.

A place without your kindness isn’t any place at all
Your good nature shadows everyone with hope
I’m following your footsteps, wishing for the same
I’ll be waiting for you to teach me how to learn
Track Name: Get Out
You're going to get out
what you're putting in
so get ready for your own ride

And at night when the wind whispers
try not to listen to your dust it's shaking up

And the dreams
that dance across your eyes
may they escape the prison that made them what they are

And when the day comes
When someone loves you
try your best to be the one you'd want to love

Oh, you don’t want to remember
You don’t think you can forget
Oh, but it’s harder
To live your life with that one regret

You’re gonna find out
That life is so much more
Than the pictures that you saw when you were young

And the dreams
That flashed across your mind
May they remain despite the changing of your world

And when the day comes
when someone loves you
Try your best to be the one you want to love

Oh, you don’t want to remember
You don’t think you can forget
Oh, but it’s harder
To live your life with that one regret

You're going to get out
what you're putting in
so get ready for your own ride
Track Name: War Poems
All the world is running but nobody can move,
They said the war is coming so what's a young boy to do?
Any side he chooses will be the side of death,
His young love sits at home whispering prayers under her breath,

No God can help you now, only powder and a gun
You can try to shoot if you want to live but don't you try to run
At night you starve and wait for another day to come
The pens are full of lovers young who've begun to kiss and hunt

God save my lover, he is mine and yours alone
Help him find safety and peace and make it on his own
I love him God as do you, I could never love another
Save him now, oh save him please, oh God he's my only lover
Save him now, oh save him please, oh God he's my only lover

The trenches are full of sand and dirt and mud
Thought I'd never get to know myself enough, but I was wrong
Down in the trenches another grenade blows the world away
And at home my young love sits wasting her life away

God isn't picking any sides this time
I can't tell the difference besides the color in our eyes
But if someone tells you to shoot, you better be fast to draw
Nothing good comes at the end of a bullet shot right at your heart

God save my lover, he is mine and yours alone
Help him find safety and peace and make it on his own
I love him God as do you, I could never love another
Save him now, oh save him please, oh God he's my only lover
Save him now, oh save him please, oh God he's my only lover
Oh God he's my only lover, Oh God he’s my only lover, Oh God he’s my only lover
Track Name: Come Back Home
Sitting on our bedroom floor
Writing on a notepad, wishing you were coming home.
Why’d you have to leave me for?
Hate that you have to work another week more, but

These are the days that I’m missing you.
Not one goes by that I don’t think of you,
And the birds and the bees, know it’s you and it’s me,
Come back home I need you close to me.

Walking with you hand in hand,
Hiking up the mountains with the Red california sand
Why’d you have to prove me wrong?
Never thought I’d fall in love with just about anyone, but

These are the days that we’ll think of soon
And I can’t forget the way the sun sets on you
And the birds and the bees, know it’s you and it’s me,
Come back home I need you close to me.

I’m in love with you
Wanna kiss you on the lips at the altar and say I do
Why you wanna marry me?
Wouldn’t blame if you ran to get yourself free

This is the life that I see with you,
I just can’t wait to see the whole thing through…
And the birds and the bees, know it’s you and it’s me,
Come back home I need you close to me.
Track Name: Sun Drops
Can’t remember the last breakfast we shared in bed,
I can’t even anticipate what’s in your head,
Someone out there can love you better than I can,
But I can’t seem to let you go

Can I just stay in your arms til the sun drops?
Can I hold you in mine until our hearts stop?
I can’t handle the pain of losing you today
Tomorrow, or next year

Can’t remember the last time you took me out,
Can’t remember the last time I loved you without my doubts,
And someone out there can love me better than you can
But you can’t seem to let me go

Can I just stay in your arms til the sun drops?
Can I hold you in mine until our hearts stop?
I can’t handle the pain of losing you today,
Tomorrow, or next year

Can we see it through?
Can we see it through?
Can we see it through?

Can I just hold you, until the sun drops
Can I hold you in mine until our hearts stop?
Track Name: Surely
Life was easy now it's not anymore,
but surely that's how it goes.
How do I keep myself above the water?

I used to need you now I don't anymore,
but surely that's broken trust,
How do I move myself beyond your hurt?

There's a light at the end of the tunnel, they say
Time will heal any heart that aches,
I don't want to watch you slip away,
I feel you getting closer every day.
You help me find the will and then the way

Life was simple now it's not anymore,
but surely that's how it goes.
How do I keep my mind above the matter?

I used to need them now I don't anymore,
but surely that's just my pride,
How do I keep my life outside the lines?

There's a light at the end of the tunnel, they say
Time will heal any soul that aches,
I won’t watch life pass me by, baby
I cant forget the promise that I’d stay
Love is sometimes funny in that way

Life was simple but it’s not anymore,
But surely that’s growing up?
How do I keep myself above the water?
