Track Name: An Old Vow
she taught me how to remove the doubt
to dream
that the words were erased

disturb some peace
find release
put everything back in its right place

so we sold the farm to everyone's alarm
we sure got the asking price
placed our bets
erased our debts
we tried to learn not to ever think twice

but oh
how'd the mockingbird come to know my name?
calling me out in the middle of the night
waking up the neighborhood

older now but still holding out for the stars to align again
with you
my friend
on the other end
with a little bit of time to spend

i don't disagree
that what we really need
is to see eachother
face to face
eye to eye
singing la dee da

an old vow since lost in words
mixed in
with the meaningless
slow train passed me by
carrying all the hints i missed

oh how'd the mockingbird come to know my name?
hold me darlin' for all it's worth,
tell me that you love me again
