Sweet 04:06
Sweet, like a peach in the heat of summer Don't you cover up your spots every time you stumble My word, you shine brighter than the coats of the spring I'm humbled! Oh, please, can't I stand beside the light just to hear the thunder? (You feel like...) Fleet, like the wings of a heart unshuttered Help me shore up all the cracks with a sheen, uncluttered My God, I'm lost! Running Up That Hill with a soul encumbered Sweet voice yet sounds, wrapping all that's seen in its vibrant colors You make a mess out of me You feel like home Lying on our backs in the peak of summer Stretching out our leaves just to catch the sun, burn Oh sweet, sweet Time C'mon, make me bleed, it's my skin you're under Have I become just another weed left chasing thunder? Sweet like a peach in the heat of summer Sweet like a peach every time you stumble You feel like...

Dreamin' 03:06
Let me be your answer, baby You know your love ain't fair Roll on down your window, baby I need that summer air This ain't the kind of thing I write But you got me feeling something different Hey, I can't get clear You're running through my head But I still need a couple seconds, baby To catch any breath you could spare When I'm crawling back to my old ways You pull me up with something different Hey, I need you to know I've been wearing myself down alone Wearing my heart down alone Shut off the telephone, baby Just to be dreamin' about something like this And how you give it to me Now I remember, darling All the people I've been You bring out the one I missed, baby And I don't wanna be different again Wearing myself down alone Wearing my heart down alone Shut off that telephone, baby Don't leave me dreamin' about something like this Don't leave me dreamin' now, baby

Heavy Soul 04:50
I took my heavy soul Wrung out and ironed out the folds I walked my feet on burning coals And washed them clean My iris darts from side to side Painting the colors of your eyes My inner portrait's smooth, it hides The parts of me that're never still Oh, what have I done? I'm standing out in the rain again I guess this's how it's supposed to go? 1-2, unto my heavy soul My heart is jumping through my throat It never does just what it's told Oh, what have I done? I'm standing out in the rain again What a beautiful day We fell asleep with the record on The one with all those sleepy songs It just keeps spinning (Sun when there is none) I guess this's how it's supposed to go Tangled, imperfect, heavy souls My heart is jumping through my throat Doing exactly what it's told What have I done? I'm standing out in the rain again Just tell me how it's supposed to go My heart is bursting, heavy soul

Hide 03:16
Find a point, but change your position Like a child, I wouldn't listen Dragging smoke on an olive leaf Yeah, it's cold, but we're sticking to the mission In all reality, this is the best of things I never wanted to happen Yeah, my colors get me some attention Under my coat, they're never worth a mention Run my nails on the backs of my teeth Pull 'em out, yeah, the Blood & apprehension In all reality, just sometimes say that you miss it Wait, tell me the secrets you're keeping all to yourself You're keeping all to yourself Push through me, your whisper I feel the gravity shift Trace your thoughts on my ribs Wait, tell me the secrets you're keeping all to yourself You're keeping all to yourself Push through me Your whisper cuts through the cars and the swells This tangled insistence (I know we're gonna make it but I'm running out of space to hide) I'm the only one who hates me All this jealous love frustrates me

Bloom 05:46
If I could say exactly what I mean I would Just cuz it's lost to words don't mean it isn't good What will I do when everything is beautiful? I hacking up my lungs They're full of all this coal This train is rolling slow What will I do when everything is beautiful? Take me down to the gardens All of these wires can't keep me going So take me down to the gardens Full of the sun, it will make me glow Not taking anymore chances I'll grow my roots where they're planted I'm a gift when I'm opened Magnificent and in dawning bloom I'm a stanza when spoken Mirrored the state that I awoke in I'm the lyre I'm the harp Plucked with kindness In the darkness

i don't wanna be anything i wanted to be rollin' round, hips down let 'em sway in the streets i don't wanna know what everyone claims cuz what do they know and what do we know i don't wanna be anything i wanted to be i don't wanna say anything I wanted to say it always comes out thin like we're oceans away i don't wanna know why everyone dies i know where they go i know where we'll go all i know is this all i've ever wanted to say hands slipping like we're made of the sea bend slowly as you're driftin' to me baby, if we melt and flow it's only 'cause of the heat all i wanna know is how to feel complete i don't wanna feel everything i'm having to feel i'm a muscle broken down give me no time to heal i don't wanna know how everyone deals man, where have they been is it where i've been i don't wanna feel everything i'm having to feel i just wanna sleep every time i'm falling to sleep thoughts ghostin' and the guard's not tending the keep i don't wanna know why everyone cries when anything close must now become closed just falling, yeah, the fallen's not falling to sleep hands slipping like we're made of the sea bend slowly as you're driftin' to me baby, if we melt and flow it's only 'cause of the heat all i wanna know is how to feel complete hands slipping like we're made of the sea bend slowly as you drift into me baby, if we melt and flow it's only 'cause of the heat all i wanna know is do you feel complete? chase it as it comes and goes :ohno: do you feel complete?

Crowns 03:06
There's a stream down in the valley for resting, weary hearts where the water's running gently as the daylight comes apart where some come to end a journey but some they never learn "You never know how much you love them till you know how much it hurts" "You never know how much you love them till you know how much it hurts" I saw you through the tall grass With your sword upon the ground Putting flowers in your hair But you never turned around And in that moment I discovered You already had your crown Sometimes you're praying for an answer When no one is around Praying for an answer When no one is around Put a lighter to a candle And kept it out of sight To either burn until it withered Or with a warring flame ignite Some nights I knew I heard it whisper And some I felt its cry "Go to sleep until tomorrow Don't you ever say goodbye" "Go to sleep until tomorrow Don't you ever say goodbye" There's a stream down in the valley for resting, weary hearts where in the silence I remember as the morning dew departs Where some come to end a journey And others come to yearn If I could call you by your name Then with my name would you return? If I could call you by your name Then with my name would you return?

Sunbeams 03:54
Sometimes you gotta chase your self Sometimes you're gonna let yourself down and, boy, let me tell you: It's gonna hurt like hell the first time but don't you do it too much to get used to it One day I'm gonna let you in cuz I'm shining like the sun when you're around But I'm wrapped up in curtains, and I've got some nails to keep it pinned down All my head is ringing, and All of me is singing From the inside I think about you every day (I can be patient, or at least I can try) (And that's just as well) Please, please be careful with yourself Please, please I only want to, love Oh, let me tell ya: Even if I had known it was gonna hurt like hell I can't afford to regret my whole self I can't afford to lose my whole way Can I be your eyes in the darkness? I think about you every day (I'll be as warm as the sunbeams) (I'll be as soft as a cool breeze) I've got staples in my head like, where you been? I wasn't ready for the time to let you in and I'm crying at all the time I've wasted feeling rejected when I'm just wretched

about

Silent, motionless,
calm as a summer-lit stream
little morning breaths
stumble into wakefulness,
the blessings of a new day.
