Track Name: Gentlemen's Bet
your heart beats like a bird out of hiding
and like a wild thing it will always come and go
the ancient forests fall and marshlands are drying
your blood runs like a river of all that you know

now once there were things that you thought you could hold onto
and things that you felt you understood for sure
and these days you lie awake in darkness
and the sun beats down like a sleepless kind of cure

and still the

chorus:
the sky it arches farther than you can see it
and heartbreak can't be seen but over time
and practice is a thing but love is stronger
a thing is only strange until its mine
and a gentlemen's bet
is still a wager
on a dime

now everything in you is restless for doing better
and every lack around you's a chastisement from the fall
you think that you just can't break any longer
and then you do, like before, and that's all

chorus
