Track Name: Heavy Hearts
We’ll see tonight if words can come out right
With heavy hearts and years on our minds

Trying harder to get myself back on my own side again
If I can find words to puncture the quiet

Needed time to see that I tried
To hold it down and keep it all inside
We’ll see tonight if words can come out right
With heavy hearts and years on our minds

Trying hard to just get my voice out, afraid I’ll forget the words
One more might free me from my own nerves

Needed time to see that I tried
To hold it down and keep it all inside
We’ll see tonight if words can come out right
With heavy hearts and years on our minds

Needed time
To be free
Tonight

We’ll see tonight, tonight
With heavy hearts
Track Name: Keep Your Head Down
If I’m distant it’s because I’m not really around
Eyes on the sun, I’ve got my head in the clouds

No time to wait for anything again
No, time won’t wait for us now

Keep your head down
Let’s see you tough this out
Grin and bear it
You have to live without

All our hearts
Still waiting for the start
All our hearts

The pangs in your heart and aches in your back
Won’t make you stronger when everything it’s all bad

Keep your head down
Let’s see you tough this out
Grin and bear it
You have to live without

All our hearts
Still waiting for the start
All our hearts

All our curses won’t break this curse and
Another year is here
