lorojoro This is honestly one of my favorite albums in my wide music collection. It has a soul that's deep and sometimes scary, and I love that. Favorite track: How Do You Wait?.

Track Name: Promise
I loved a girl with two middle names
She broke her promise and now she's gone
Said I loved her so but she didn't stay
I was left alone with a broken heart
Where are you Lord do you hear me pray?
Track Name: You Are Not
I won’t listen to your shit
I’ve had enough of it
I’m taking back my mind
You said I was worthless
You removed my purpose
You are not a friend of mine

I’ve been so hard on myself
Never been good enough I don’t fit well
Always deficient, I try but I fail

[Chorus]

If I were smarter I’d figure this out
If I fight harder I won’t be beaten down
Just a little farther, it won’t be long now

[Chorus]
Track Name: The Garden
Your smile is hollow
Your eyes are empty
The dirt between my toes begins to swallow my feet

Rope that will not skip
A crown you cannot wear
Ribbons and bows for tufts of headless hair

Look but never taste
You will see
Held but not embraced
You will be

Rope that will not skip
A crown you cannot wear
Ribbons and bows for tufts of headless hair
Track Name: How Do You Wait?
Hands are moving in slow motion
My heart drifts on this static ocean
Are we there yet? Are we there yet?
What I do not have can I get now?
I need it now. I want it now.
Can’t you see that I need it?
How do you wait for love?

Teach me patience when I can’t see
anything but darkness
Give me hope so I’ll rest
Give me dreams in green

Attitude transforms the waiting
From delay to future training
Do not squander, do not waste it
Now’s the time for preparation

When you know that something’s coming
But it will not be here today
How do you wait for love?
Track Name: Broken Anew
I’ve broken my back a couple of times for you
And it hurt like nothing I’ve ever felt, it’s true
But I can honestly say it was my pleasure to
And if you ask me again I’d break my back anew

Couldn’t you see that I was in love with you?
But I never had wanted to

Couldn’t you see I was standing there
Standing right beside you waiting?
But you just walked away

I just wanted to say that I love you

I’ve broken my back a couple of times, it’s true
Track Name: Promise (Reprise)
I loved a girl with two middle names
She broke her promise and now she's gone
