Cold

 

Can we
Talk about the truth
Clear the haze
We’ve been living through
Closeness tends to make you go numb
But honesty goes soft on my tongue

Drifting closer to insanity
Showing me your instability
Babe, you burned my palms to the third degree
When you needed me, you need me

Can we
Talk about the lies
A masterpiece hidden in plain sight
The bliss of ignorance always seems to pull me in
When you say you need my strawberry kiss again

Drifting closer to the edge of this
Hanging off of our own precipice
Babe, you burned my tongue to the third degree
When you needed me, you need me

Slow, baby
This is what it’s like to be cold
Slow, baby
This is what it’s like to be cold

Can we
Talk about that night
Your stereo
As your drove off for the last time
Looked me in the eye and told me you were just fine
While your face says you’d still kill to be mine

Drifting closer to the end of this
Fading out of chemical madness
Babe, I’ll burn your heart to the third degree
When you need me, you need me

Slow, baby
This is what it’s like to be cold
Slow, baby
This is what it’s like to be cold

Drifting closer to the end of this
Fading out of chemical madness
Babe, I’ll burn your heart to the third degree
When you need me, you need me

Slow, baby
This is what it’s like to be cold
Slow, baby
This is what it’s like to be cold

Enough

 

Fill my lungs one more time
Fumes so strong I think I’ll die
The air of you inside the room
How I hate inhaling you

You soaked my heart in bitter wine
And drenched your own in tears I cried
You’re always taking, all the time
You’d drain the oceans till the earth ran dry

Was the night not dark enough
Was the sky not high enough
Was the sea not deep enough
I gave you all my love

Was the sun not bright enough
Was the ground not hard enough
Was the clock not fast enough
I gave you all my love

Strip me bare yet again
Take my pride and leave my sin
Drain my giving soul with greed
Why do you take more than you need

Unwind me like a spool of string
All my threads unravelling
Piece by piece I fall apart
But all of me can’t fill your heart

Was the night not dark enough
Was the sky not high enough
Was the sea not deep enough
I gave you all my love

Was the sun not bright enough
Was the ground not hard enough
Was the clock not fast enough
I gave you all my love

All my love
All my love
Why can’t my light fill your night
There’s such an emptiness inside
I’d give you everything and more
Love me back, or let me go

Was the night not dark enough
Was the sky not high enough
Was the sea not deep enough
I gave you all my love

Was the sun not bright enough
Was the ground not hard enough
Was the clock not fast enough
I gave you all my love

Lover, Please

 

Asking me
To forget
Is asking me
To pretend
That the sun
Does not exist

Lover, please
Just hear this
All I do
Is sit and reminiscence
While the moon cries back to me
And offers a kiss

Days fading fast
Falling to ash
I’m living in the past

Floating through
Memories
Thick with fog
Sick with remembering
My breath losing my lungs

Lover, please
Hold me once
I’ve become
So empty and undone
Heart beating like a time bomb
I can’t out run

I can’t go
To the depths my
Mind roams
You filled the space between my skin and bones
Sealed in a rose
Days I miss most
All I have now is your ghost

Take the moon from my head
And you’ll just have the sky
There’s no sun left to rise
I’d take all the fault and blame
Just to hear you say my name
Won’t you put my mind at ease
And come home
Lover, please
Lover, please

Alarm The Sun

 

Three dandelions
For the bedside table
I try to give you a lively thought
You say, “they’re wilting”
While I just see life
I’ll love you while I play mercy with God

You have your problems
Hands dipped in black ink
And you never sing anymore
Slow and anxious
You’re a game on practice mode
Don’t you see you’ve caused this storm

Cause I can’t write in the dark
I can’t write in the dark
I can’t write in the dark
Tell the birds to alarm the sun
I can’t write in the dark
I can’t write in the dark
I can’t write in the dark
Tell the birds to alarm the sun

I dance in yellow
I’ll be your candle
I’d burn myself just to give you light
But would you follow
When I lead you higher
You’re so addicted to the night

But I can’t write in the dark
I can’t write in the dark
I can’t write in the dark
Tell the birds to alarm the sun
I can’t write in the dark
I can’t write in the dark
I can’t write in the dark
Tell the birds to alarm the sun

The lightswitch in my heart is missing
And I’m starting to grow numb
With painting my lips and pretending
You’re something other than fog
Cause I would wipe the mud off your heart
With my own
Angel I can’t watch you break the
Wings with which you’ve flown
Don’t be afraid to feel the sun
Warm you like before
'Cause all along, it’s always been
Your fever I adore

But I can’t write in the dark
I can’t write in the dark
I can’t write in the dark
Tell the birds to alarm the sun
I can’t write in the dark
I can’t write in the dark
I can’t write in the dark
Tell the birds to alarm the sun

Language of Letting Go

 

I first saw hell
When I went inside your mind
And read each line
Of poetry that I could find
I’m sorry you’re so plagued with these demons so deep
I wonder how you ever find the time to sleep
Carrying a head
Filled with so much dread

You say you still want me
But you never let it show
You say you still need me
But baby, you’re never home
You say you still love me
You don’t, and you let me know
In the language of letting go

You don’t care if you die
I can tell cause you kiss me while you drive
Covered in scars
Would it kill you to value my heart?
You’re the darkest night, somehow you’ve put out all my light
Let the sun go down, I don’t even wanna try
I’ll come down to you
To see the haze that you look through

You say you still want me
But you never let it show
You say you still need me
But baby, you’re never home
You say you still love me
You don’t, and you let me know
In the language of letting go

One more time
Baby, say it’s alright
One last time
Stay just for the night
One more time
We’ll pretend we don’t know
One last time
Then I’m letting go

You say you still want me
But you never let it show
You say you still need me
But baby, you’re never home
You say you still love me
You don’t, and you let me know
In the language of letting go

Moonlight

 

Rub my salt on your broken skin
Think of me as you breathe her in
I’ve been bathing in sunshine
And finding my good side
I hope that you miss me
But I’ve been coming alive

There’s a galaxy in me
A paradise to be set free
It’s a house with no darkness
A new kind of calmness
Like sleeping in motion
In lavender oceans

Crack your heart on
The marble of my mind
You always miss the
Things you try to find
I wanted to be yours
And wanted you to be mine
But falling for you
I was a moth to the moonlight

You want to change but you never do
Stuck to monotony like glue
You wear out the soles of
Your shoes finding somebody new
Every night when I would have
Just been here for you

I forgot what dreaming was like
When I lived in your black and white
I’ve got a soul full of wildflowers
And you were a wildfire
But they’ve grown back and for you
I have no desire

Crack your heart on
The marble of my mind
You always miss the
Things you try to find
I wanted to be yours
And wanted you to be mine
But falling for you
I was a moth to the moonlight

I thought you
Were the light in darkness
Could you feel the brightness inside our kiss, oh
You’ll crave me now that you’re away
You’re too dull for me anyway

Crack your heart on
The marble of my mind
You always miss the
Things you try to find
I wanted to be yours
And wanted you to be mine
But falling for you
I was a moth to the moonlight

Hide With You

 

Found you by the light of the full moon
Constellations in the sky
Galaxies in this high

Teach me all of the mysteries
That our eyes could never see
Ethereal hearts intertwining

Ask me what i’m thinking about
I’m thinking 'bout leaving this town
Run away, and just get out
Rise above the noise of this crowd

Ask me what i’m thinking about
I’m thinking 'bout kissing your mouth
Loving you with no doubts
Hide with you when the sun goes down

Floating, just like i’m dreaming
Through these clouds of desire
A fever rising like a fire

Writing love letters to you
Memorising the way you move
Enamoured by the things you do

Ask me what i’m thinking about
I’m thinking 'bout leaving this town
Run away, and just get out
Rise above the noise of this crowd

Ask me what i’m thinking about
I’m thinking 'bout kissing your mouth
Loving you with no doubts
Hide with you when the sun goes down

Goodbye

 

The grey double doors inside your eyes

Slam themselves shut, it’s different this time

Hello, we’re here once more

Apologies spread across the floor

But there will be no espresso

Only dark figured shadows

There will be no more kind hands

Only tear drops and door slams

 

It’s just goodbye,

But my heart is in my stomach for a swim

It’s just goodbye,

But I have goosebumps from your blade on my skin

I don’t have to cry, you know this kills me inside

This goodbye will turn your tongue to ice

 

Tucking my swollen eyes to bed

Shut off the light inside my head

You won’t leave, and I won’t stay

I’ll close the door once you look away

‘Cause there will be no more clenched teeth

Only black, scorching concrete

There will be no forgiveness

Only the smoke of the incense 

 

It’s just goodbye,

But my heart is in my stomach for a swim

It’s just goodbye,

But I have goosebumps from your blade on my skin

You don’t have to cry, I know this kills you inside

This goodbye will turn my tongue to ice

 

But I’ll keep writing all of the words you spoke

Your promises are all mirrors and smoke

There’s no such thing as a last goodbye

When every day we are frozen and tongue tied

 

It’s just goodbye,

But my heart is in my stomach for a swim

It’s just goodbye,

But I have goosebumps from your blade on my skin

You don’t have to cry, I know this kills you inside

This goodbye will turn our tongues to ice
