Track Name: David Gregory (feat. Jeremy Casella) - Underground
Close your eyes and try to get some rest
I'll be gone all night
There's work out there; I'm putting in some time
So you don't have to cry

Not now baby, got a debt to pay
The cost is high and i'm pretty far away from home
Not now honey have to settle a score; I gave them everything
They need a little more
and the sun's gone underground

Say your prayers and if you have some time,
Say mine for me tonight
'Cause it's cold out there
Everybody's trying to sell their gods to me tonight

The Thief's in Heaven and the Brakeman's home
And the World's gone crazy trying to win back its own soul
Our father songs used to make us cry for the melodies we dance to in the night
Alone, because the sun's gone underground

Not now baby, got a check to cash
I think I won the race, but I can't seem to laugh
The moon and the stars have been washed away
I'm stepping out into the light of day
At last because the sun came back around
The sun goes underground
But the sun comes back around
Track Name: Name
It's all hellos and goodbyes
Nobody really says your name around here
I'm in love with a skyline
It baptized my dreams and left me with my fears

And i'd change my father's name
Just to sell a song
'Cause we're trying to make our way
But it feels like something's wrong

Now i'm trying to remember when our hearts were young and strong
And everybody said we'd never stand a chance
But still our words were filled with love
In everything we did and everywhere we went

It's all dollars and silk ties
I've got one blank page to tell you who I am
And they promised the high life
But the rich advise and never lend a hand

I could find another name
I could wright a different song
'Cause we're trying to make our way
But it feels like something's wrong

Now i'm trying to remember when our hearts were young and strong
And everybody said we'd never stand a chance
But still our words were filled with love
In everything we did and everywhere we went

It's a hard thing moving on
From the best laid plans of men, to tears and cigarettes
But there's a vision that we saw on nights just like these
That we'll learn to see again.
Track Name: David Gregory (feat. Jeremy Casella) - Whiskey Dreams
Outside your window
Your heart in your hands
I cant find the words now
But I never can

All at once
You were gone

I Turn the ignition
I've Nowhere to go
This city is empty
And you were my home

And all at once
My future's gone

Looking back the road was long
We were young and full of songs
But this is not a race that's won by most
Every night i'll fall asleep
To find you in my whiskey dreams
You have gone and left me with your ghost

I'll take the last exit
On 143
What's left in my rearview
It's the last thing I see
When all at once

Looking back the road was long
We were young and full of songs
But this is not a race that's won by most
Every night i'll fall asleep
To find you in my whiskey dreams
You have gone and left me with your ghost

Like bagels on a Saturday
Pictures left inside their frames
The Message on my mirror that you wrote

The scent you left on all my clothes
Little yellow post it notes
You have gone and left me with your ghost

Lipstick on my favorite scarf
Your kisses left behind like scars
Always and forever like you wrote
I'll slip away with one more drink to find you in my whiskey dreams
You have gone and left me with your ghost

I'll slip away with one more drink to find you in my whiskey dreams
You have gone and left me with your ghost
Track Name: David Gregory (feat. Jeremy Casella) - Light & Smoke
Light and smoke
Painted pictures in my head wrap their hands around my throat
Sing or choke - it's all the same here

Come down hard and break my back
With questions I don't want to ask

Like maybe my father did his best
Maybe there're others who'd attest that
He fell just like the others
The he got back up again
Maybe my pride is all I have
You know that I'm poor in that

I need a victory
To shake my bones
I need a victory
To call me home

Failure sweet
It rises up and clouds my eyes
Then falls burning down my cheek
Pence or pounds
It's all the same

I held this victory in my hands
And watched it fall like grains of sand


Maybe it should should have been the fall
Maybe there're others who recall that
The inkwell spilled a story
Much different than my own
Maybe my plans are all I have
You know that I am poor in that

I need a victory
To shake my bones
I need a victory
To call me home

Come down love and flood these streets
Bring those answers that we need

I need a victory
To shake my bones
I need a victory
To call me home
Track Name: Remedy
Pain is like an ocean
Deep, dark and bigger than me
But love could be the current that brings you to me

You change like the skyline
You burn me up with vows you can't keep
You could be the light after night's long relief

I fall in love every hour of the day
Every new smile holds my glance for a while
You'd lay down you armor just to fall on my blade
But you could be my remedy

Your lips are like a melody
I remember the word but can't make myself sing
It hasn't been the same without your harmonies

I fall in love every hour of the day
Every new smile holds my glance for a while
You'd lay down you armor just to fall on my blade
But you could be my remedy

You could be my remedy

Every night
Every day
I can't give you my heart
I can't wish you away

Every hour
Peels Away
If i'm yours it's for good
I'm just after the chase

You could be my remedy

My remedy
Track Name: Rise & Fall
Whats the word to describe it
The feeling you've lost and can't find it
Where's the time and place that it was last seen

Whats her name, I remember
The spirit you broke last december
Just to see if you could

'Cause there's hope for the beggar
And grace for the thief
But these menial sins we've committed have teeth
And they gnash

We're rising and falling
But we've set our eyes on a light thats growing
This promise is swelling, like daggers, its crashing
On shores left empty

So press on through the storm
We've been pulled down before
Drew in our lungs, there was peace in our death there

We're rising and falling
But we've set our eyes on a light thats growing
This promise is swelling, like daggers, its crashing
On shores left empty

Rise and fall
Rise and fall

And we rise... we rise
