Track Name: Missing Hours
Glenn is on the phone, drunk and alone
Says he doesn’t have much time
Believes the speed of life moves fast
And before you know it we die
Well, most of the days I would agree
But feel he’s had too much wine
Who’s to say what really matters
Before the last sigh

Yes, Sal, I’m still doing well
Still slumming on State Street
One day I’ll finally meet a love
And you’ll think me complete

Missing hours where do they go
Do they disappear in the hole in my coat
Another season soon to be gone
And all the plans never quite done
The past is a city we’ll soon forget
As we travel closer to the sunset
Like to think that the bird on the wing
Always has a new song to sing

Yes, Sal, I’m still doing well
Still struggling to make ends meet
One day I’ll finally disappear
And who will ask of me

And the outcome turns
When you never expect it
Because you never expect it
The outcome turns
Track Name: Falcon
Before the fire we sit
Watching old dreams burn
And even though we travel
It’s here we return

To the light

Let’s run into the woods
And leave the path behind
Hidden with our promise
To one day join

In the light

Do you hear it in the wind
When the falcon takes its prey
Do you feel it at dusk
When the night takes the day

And takes the light
