Track Name: Take It On The Chin
The winds getting colder
you better stay in, you know what's good for you
hunker down a little lower
why you looking' over there? There's nothing there for you.

but you take it on the chin because that's what you do.
you love it oh you love it oh you love the abuse
you take it all the time, yeah you take it all the time

The rates are getting higher
You better pay up, you know what's good for you
And the days are getting harder
You better step up, what the hell's wrong with you?

Just take it on the chin because that's what you do
Say you love it, oh you love it, oh you love the abuse
Hell, you take it all the time, you take it all the time

The wind will blow your mind
If you step outside
The wind will blow your mind
If you step outside the line

You've heard tell of something golden
A happy little place out on the country side
But for now you're still beholden
Nevermind to whom, it's not for you to decide

And you take it on the chin because hey that's life
You take it on the chin and go along for the ride

The wind will blow your mind
If you step outside
The wind will blow your mind
if you step outside the line
Track Name: Nesting
I put myself out on a limb all the time
I'll navigate winds and branches and manage just fine
I had an idea I could build us a skyward home
I had an idea we could make this limb our own

If you come out here with me the weight
might bring us to the ground
But I'd rather fall for you
than stay up here wafting around.

I put myself on a limb all the time
Watch the wind blow away all the things that I think are mine
I had an idea we could tie each other down
I had an idea that for once we could feel real safe and sound

Chorus

It's a long way down but a short way up from here
and you can't see the view but to me it's crystal clear
You build the nest and I promise to show you the sights
We can navigate winds and branches and we can be alright

I put myself out on a limb all the time
I've been hoping a bird like you might just stop by
I had an idea that you’d like what I’ve done with the place
I had an idea you might have an idea to stay

Sure, if you come out here with me the weight
might bring us to the ground
But I'd rather fall for you
than stay up here wafting around
Track Name: It's Been Too Long
While you were sleeping I laid awake in my bed
The memories I've been keeping relived, indulged and fed
It's been too long

've been wanting you too long
You've been haunting me too long
But I'll stay cool
But I'll stay cool
But I'll stay cool
But I want you

While I'm exploring the paths you used to tread
My body's resenting hands traveling in your stead
It's been too long

Chorus

While you were sleeping did you dream of me at all
Did I come to you sweetly? Did you say it's been too long?
It's been too long
