Track Name: Enclosure (Demo)
It was getting late
she said "take my hand"
I don't know
trust me I'm a local, I'm a local I'm a...
I'm a local
Track Name: Thoughtful, But Irrelevant (Demo)
I said I wish it was that easy but there was just so much
that I can never understand
'cause I'm just so desperate for answers
holding up these frames with my pointless intent again

focused and forceful and leading with words
my mind's wandering off with your looks of concern
to the way your hair fell over your face
stop wasting my time, I'll admit my mistakes
but now its getting late so you have have to go
and I lost my last chance to show you what I was thinking
I remember you always wanting to know

I still hear it
"You know, you're sad. I know you care
but now I'm sure that you don't belong here"
Track Name: Northshore (Demo)
we're making habits of second chances and alibi's
but who's to say who knows what's right
I just want to feel like I know where I'm from
don't you want to feel like you know where to go
just take what's yours forget what's mine
I'll step outside to speak of better or warmer times

If it's tact that I'm missing I swear I'm not the only one
someone please send me a sign that I'm not the only one

The words mixed up in these lines
have never given me peace of mind
It's a shame but I'm aware I'm getting better
I'm getting better at staying there
three hundred miles from sayreville
I'm finally tired of caring for you

on the corner of atlantic and summer street
I lost sense of what you wanted me to be
as my words are falling through the floor
with the melodies of the northshore
Track Name: Whatever Helps You Sleep (Demo)
it took more than simple gestures to surrender all your doubt
this time I can't be sorry
because I still can't breathe underneath
all the words that you left me
they're breaking my shoulders
I was looking for anything,
searching for myself in your city
but to keep hope in your eyes
in rain or sunlight doesn't make it right
forgetting exactly what shade of blue
the silence settles in the room
it doesn't matter, I just never thought I'd see you so distracted

so go on with your life as if nothing between was ever kindled or cared for, I have this overwhelming feeling that the girl from the shore town I always thought I could count on is gone
gone away

stumble down, scrape your knees, call it culture
no one's listening
stumble down, scrape your knees
no one is taking you seriously

so pour another drink, maybe two or three
I hope it keeps you warm, I hope that it helps you sleep

someday you'll get it, no one forced your hand
one day you'll understand
Track Name: Northshore (Acoustic Demo)
we're making habits of second chances and alibis
who's to say who knows what's right
I just want to feel like I know where I'm from
don't you want to feel like you know where to go
just take what's yours forget what's mine
I'll step outside to speak of better or warmer times

and If it's tact that I'm missing I swear I'm not the only one
I swear I'm not the only one
someone please send me a sign that I'm not the only one
that I'm not the only one
that I'm not the only

the words mixed up in these lines
have never given me peace of mind
It's a shame but I'm aware
I'm getting better, I'm getting better at staying there
three hundred miles from sayreville
I'm finally tired of caring for you
