Track Name: Sarah (Part 1)
Hold her in Your arms
When I can't hold her in mine
Hold her in Your arms
When I can't hold her in mine

I'm wearing holes in the knees of my jeans
'Cause I believe You listen to me
I'm wearing holes in the knees of my jeans
'Cause I believe You listen to me

Hold her in Your heart
Like I hold her in mine
Hold her in Your heart
Like I hold her in mine

I'm wearing holes in the knees of my jeans
'Cause I believe You listen to me
I'm wearing holes in the knees of my jeans
'Cause I believe You listen to me, oh!
Track Name: Sisters and Brothers
Some people think that rules keep us alive
You're only worth your shirt and your tie
If you don't own these then you're not worth a damn
And you will surely die

Crawl up a mountain on your hands and knees
If you are in pain then God's wrath is appeased
You can't be happy is what you believe
And you have surely died

You look at me through the places I've been
The first stone is cast from the one with no sin
Here in this place where I do not fit in
I will surely die

And in the darkness the truth surely comes
The cold of the night where righteousness falls
Where you are standing I do not belong
And I have surely died

Hold on Sisters and Brothers
Hold on, hold on to each other
We can, we can be stronger
We can, we can be stronger
Track Name: To the Backs of My Sleeves
I spend all my days pretending
Things that don't matter, matter to me
When things are bad my heart starts leaking
From my eyes to the backs of my sleeves

And though you seek you may not find
The things in life that make you smile
The road is hard my troubles deep
And I am tired but I can't sleep

I spend all my days pretending
There's still something left for me to see
And when I do I get this feeling
From my head to the soles of my feet
Over and over and over again
I feel like I've gone right back to the start
On days like these I can't help thinking
You and I should never be apart

And though you seek you may not find
The things in life that make you smile
The road is hard my troubles deep
And I am tired but I can't sleep
Track Name: A Start to an End (Part 2)
If you don't love me
Then you should probably leave
And although it hurts to say
We will be better off this way

When you made your choice
You left me without a voice
With nothing left to say
and no way to make you stay

I don't want you
If you don't want me
I wish this were true
'Cause then I'd be free

You left to be happy
Turns out that this does not involve me
I'm starting to resent
That I brought you joy with my absence

If you don't love me
Then you should probably leave
And although it hurts to say
We will be better off this way

I don't want you
If you don't want me
I wish this were true
'Cause then I'd be free
Track Name: Said You Saw It Coming (Part 3)
You said you saw it coming
I swear that I did not
I thought we'd keep on loving
'Till I asked you if you'd tie the knot
But you had different ideas
And now I'm full of fear
'Cause it's the first time that I've been
Alone in almost two years
