Track Name: Hold Me Close
Hold me close and never let me go, please
tell me all the things that I should know, please
I used to shine so bright, I lit the night,
I was the light in every midnight sky

Hold me close and tell me not to fear, please
tell me all the things I want to hear, please
I used to have such wings, I used to sing
I was the ring on planets in other universes other than here

I was a star, I fell so far, I did it all for you
I gave my grace, I gave my face, I did it all for you
all for you, all for you now, all for you

so teach me how to be someone like you, please
I am so lost so tell me what to do, please
I used to know my part, knew where to start
but now my heart is empty
oh fill it, please

I was a star, I fell so far, I did it all for you
I gave my grace, I gave my face, I did it all for you
all for you, all for you now, all for you

so don’t pretend that I’m the same as I once was
just hold me a little bit tighter now and kiss me because

I was a star, I fell so far, I did it all for you
I gave my grace, I gave my face, I did it all for you
all for you, all for you now, all for you

I was a star, I fell so far, I did it all for you
I gave my grace, I gave my face, I did it all for you
all for you, all for you now, all for you
all for you
Track Name: You Were The Best
I said, “I don’t alway say the right thing”
he said, “I know”
I said, “I really need a drive”
he said, “let’s go”

“I’m not good,” I said, “I’m dirt”
He said, “can’t you see?
you’re fields and hills and mountains, Dean,
you are the world to me”

He was the best, he was the best of anyone
and now he’s gone
and I’m supposed to just forget him
and carry on

but my fields are dead and empty
I fell asleep in my car
the earth sits still in darkness ‘cause it’s missing
it’s missing a star

I said, “I don’t always do the right thing”
he said, “don’t cry”
I said, “when you come back, will you
teach me the sky?

‘Cause I have lived my life afraid
to take to air
but I think I would be all right
if you were there”

you were the best, you were the best of anyone
you can’t be gone
‘cause I can live without you
but it feels wrong

I lie on my back and think of you
and how you can’t be far
the earth is cold tonight because it’s missing
it’s missing a star

I said, “I don’t always know the right thing”
but I am sure
that you and I cannot be over
there must be more

during the day the stars are there
just hidden out of view
they won’t come out until the night
Cas, I will wait for you

you were the best, you were the best of anyone
I know you’re there
I used to be so mad at you
now I don’t care

I just want you here beside me
everything that you are
of all the constellations you’re the brightest
you’re my favorite star
