about

'I craved distance - begging the landscape to be my only companion, my muse. I awoke in the palms of an existence larger than my comprehension and wider than my own soul. Slowly I was swallowed up by the ravenous ocean of time - a wander's paradise. With ambivalent bones, words poured from them like my very blood - hot, passionate, relentless. I continue to exist within the realms of my own daydreams and night dreams - pining, longing, creating, admiring, and drifting.'

All songs written by Kirsten Ludwig EXCEPT 'The North' written with Sam Weber.

Track Name: Two-Halves
zeus says separate them now,
zeus says take away their powers,
two of one, cut from the cloth,
binding them to a lonely life.

idling their time is spent,
weepin over anythin,
there's a wound in your heart singing ,
where's the other half of your heart?

who is half of me?
with the moon, earth, and sun matching?
oh the gods will see,
that half of you is me

divinely put your hands on me,
like they grew from my side,
limbs alike with minds double,
watching us just fall

departing from our living soil,
down to haethes hall,
in the shadows, you will gather,
not two but one soul

who is half of me?
with the moon, earth, and sun matching?
oh the gods will see,
that half of you is me

who is left of me?
the cosmos in the right degree?
oh the gods will see,
that half of you is me

what do you want, do you want to be whole?
i will melt you into one, let you grow,
searching and pining, like all the gods did want

in the shadows, i will find you,
wait til crimson light
Track Name: Over
i crave every inch,
of your travelin skin and,
you need someone who knows,
how to deal with pride and egos

i want the dusk in my hair,
like the ocean has been on us bare,
you got, you got,
what you want, what you want

over, over my body now,
hold your body over me now,
closer, move closer,
i whisper to you, you silence me with your mouth,
palm to palm, warmth inside our hands,
our bodies are made of distance

it's like i crossed a mirror,
with the sea my spine appears,
i'm a laughing fool, i'm a laughing fool,
all a sudden i'm in a winter noose

the cold is in my hair,
the grey lonesome chills me bare,
i try to hide,
what i feel like

over, over my body now,
hold your body over me now,
closer, move closer,
i whisper to you, you silence me with your mouth,
palm to palm, warmth inside our hands,
our bodies are made of distance

i can't feel you so close to me now,
my thoughts are ringing like an ambulance sound,
how do you, you go back to livin alone?
when you led, led me to destruct your home

over, over my body now,
hold your body over me now,
closer, move closer,
i whisper to you, you silence me with your mouth,
palm to palm, warmth inside our hands,
our bodies are made of distance
Track Name: Frame (Gold)
i'd like to think that the fingerprints in the dust,
are your hands slowly weeping in the night

i'd like to think you've only slipped away now,
for a moment, you're still just around the corner,
holding on...

take what you want from me, even my strength,
no one will lose you no, your name won't change,
i still remember your body, your brain,
on your conscious is more than your frame,
more than your frame

drifting in my sleep to a place you used to be,
and the library you'd sit was in your mind

don't break the day for the day will break to you,
oh million colours showerin you with gold,
gold, gold in your hair

take what you want from me, even my strength,
no one will lose you now, your name won't change,
i still remember your body, your brain,
on your conscious is more than your frame,
more than your frame

bones are frames and frames are bones,
bones are frames and frames are bones,
bones are frames and frames are bones,
bones are frames and frames are...

take what you want from me, even my strength,
no one will lose you now, your name won't change,
i still remember your body, your brain,
on your conscious is more than your frame, more than your frame
Track Name: Don't Let Go
Lie with me in my twin bed,
Wrap your arms 'round my head,
Skinny dip with me in the dark,
Emptiness within the stars.

Ten days left 'til end of time,
Leave me sittin' sippin' white wine,
I'm the mountains confinin',
This town.

Too big to realize, what effect we have on time,
Sleep with me every night, hear you dream by my side,
Hold my hands like they're gold, come to canada feel the snow,
When I ask you 'don't let go?', don't let go,
Don't let go.

Taste buds tingle, respect tastes good,
All the mountains freeze as I stood,
Don't keep waitin' you need to go,
There is freedom breathin' back home.

Hold her hands like you held mine,
Present honour will leave you cryin',
Won't forget you, I'm honest,
I'll be honest to ya...

Too big to realize, what effect we have on time,
Sleep with me every night, hear you dream by my side,
Hold my hands like they're gold, come to canada feel the snow,
When I ask you 'don't let go?', don't let go,
Don't let go.

These words you speak, they will be,
The last ones standing in between,
The salty water will kiss our feet,
We'll just let it be.

Too weak to realize, what effect you had on time,
Lie alone every night, steer all your words out of my mind,
Melt these locks of pure gold, bitter I am with the white snow,
Trapped in the sleet, black as crow,
I am so cold, I am so cold,
Trapped in the sleet, black as crow,
I am so cold, I am so cold,
Trapped in the sleet, black as crow,
I am so cold, I am cold.
Track Name: Wait
miles and miles, we're separated,
the grass, the trees, the mountain crease,
the cold grey pavement

whoever said distance was romantic,
was writtin from imagination,
didn't do it

why does my heart, belong to the world?
not next door, across the street, the middle of the earth,
how long will you wait?
how long will i wait?

here i am crying and begging for you,
i've never loved somethin' so much like your soul,
through and through

tell me, oh tell me,
that this is gunna work,
all the weight is weighing on your last and final words

why does my heart, belong to the world?
not next door, across the street, the middle of the earth,
how long will you wait?
how long will i wait?

rocks are placed on my chest,
i broke your soul with this distance
Track Name: The North
break all my bones, turn them to dust,
i feel so selfish, but you are a must,
skies bleed out white, stone rivers freeze dry,
your blood is the rain, we leave out on the ice

that'll break my world in two

thirty-four days, in six days we've stayed,
in hilltop side country homes,
meeting abroad, with little to lose,
servin the needs of two jealous young fools

who'll tear my world in two

our ways have been changing, i've been so compliant,
faster and faster, but i wouldn't buy it,
winter is running his course,
i turn my heart to the north

wrapped in dust, in a clearing i freeze,
i wind through the pines, with snow at my knees,
tracin old steps over powdery miles,
the top of my head, exposed to the sky

you kept me alive, inside an embrace,
i'd cross every line to be back in this place,
shut up inside, or buried away,
calgary longs for the ring of your name

to cling to the things that i knew

our ways have been changing, i've been so compliant,
faster and faster, but i wouldn't buy it,
winter is running his course,
i turn my heart to the north

fates had been braided, but you were defiant,
searchin for something, but you'll never find it,
winter is running his course,
i turn my heart to the north

winter is running his course,
i turn my heart to the north
Track Name: Adrift
i am no saint, i'm tellin you now,
i watched a forest, burn to the ground,
smoke in the air, i trickled away,
while the ash stood, in my place

just because flames, burn everything,
phoenix still grows, with the life that it brings,
rivers still flow, with the ocean's veins,
don't give up on this now

adrift, sailin west,
i float, in the choppy seas,
all of the ores, pushin me,
adrift

bare country side, no figure stood,
palms open wide, footprints in soot,
i left a trail, i left a trail to where i hide,
instinct runnin wild

absent in thought, cloudy of mind,
lost on the shore, the changin tide,
dried up i fight, with the ocean's eyes,
don't give up on this now

adrift, sailin west,
i float, in the choppy seas,
all of the ores, pushin me,
adrift

bones and brick, leadin up to this,
sheltered thoughts, crashin out,
i'm lost

i am no saint, i'm tellin you now,
i watched my mind, burn to the ground
Track Name: Skye
bony spine don't run and hide,
i'll walk your carpet at midnight

let the rain fall at the shore,
where the hills descend to the waters floor

i want the earth beneath my feet,
where gravel roads are between the green,
and i can get lost next to the sea,
love has rained on me

dark and placid table top,
the lakes remain scattered in dusk

quilted skies bring memories,
misty fog blankets the trees

i want the earth beneath my feet,
where gravel roads are between the green,
and i can get lost next to the sea,
love has rained on me

love...

sunset sky don't run and hide,
you're slowly crouching to midnight

on the shore i thought i'd find,
but in the hills my love does lie
