you’re not the oblivious kind take my hand and fall off the line I’ve been waiting so long to start since I found you inside my heart choose a corner on your street choose an hour for us to meet no matter what you care to do you will know that all these things are true
2.
bottoms up, we’re going down and it was me who fired the shot you’re unarmed, I killed your guard now I know exactly what we’re not keep your heart where they can see the parts I can’t let go of when you’re far from this town use its light to guide you home save me from my mistakes I have made the gravest one today if I knew how to stay the same you would not have to walk away keep your heart where they can see the parts I can’t let go of when you’re far from this town use its light to guide you home halfway from the hospital I am not sure which way is home I don’t think I can be here anymore resolution fogs your face I want to take it all away but I don’t think you should be here anymore walking home with your head down the worst of it is over now so tell me, dear, what are you dreaming of? when you feel as sad as this lost against a ventured risk at the very least you can know you were loved

Yeah You Are 03:09
hand on heart it’s breaking through I want you, I want you, she said, I want you, I start it up I’m fighting too I want you, I want you, he said, I want you, I comfort calls you always knew I want you, I want you, she said, I want you, I a gracious fit this noble truth I want you, I want you, he said, I want you, I falling down so far it turns into a climb and I am ready now to ascend with you blazing in your chest light pours from your mouth I want to bask in it until I burn up inside your glow could you be in love with a broken man? I am not sure I can ever be better than I am worry not, my love I am shattered too and we crashed at once to be everything everything I wanted you are everything
4.
Big Talker 04:11
I wanna be better by the time you come home clean up, clean out and get respectable and I will hold back all the things that scare you I will hold back all the things that scare you I will hold back all the things that scare you I will hold them back and I could line up so that you could fall down quietly and safely, breathing sound I have got your back when the world defeats you I have got your back when the world defeats you I have got your back when the world defeats you I have got your back and I dug out your heart with my bare hands pulled up all the shards they left in it and I will beat back all the girls who stuck you I will beat back all the girls who stuck you I will beat back all the girls who stuck you I will beat them back come home, my love
5.
I’m so sick of you trying to make it and of fucking folk songs that fake it at the end tired of waking up just to repeat it the same sodden gray that never seems to bend to white you think you lied to spare me but you’re just saving yourself and when the fog cleared did you see what you wanted? when the fog cleared could you reach what you wanted? when the fog cleared I lost everything I wanted when the fog clears I won’t watch you hold what you want when the fog you think you lied to spare me
6.
you’re an out-of-focus movie screen you’re the radio with one headphone out close the windows they can hear you screaming falling, swinging, lacking any clout flicker you’re better than the worst of it you’re older than you wanted to be close the windows they can hear you screaming close the windows they can hear you screaming flicker smashing all the glass apart screaming your light out until your heart flickers
7.
Blood Ablaze 04:22
seasonal allergies have always come and gone like you inside my mind on the good days meteor showers fell on my bravest gesture while you were throwing darts with Happiness and there was nothing I could’ve played I want to feel nothing until you run away I’d tell you one thing if you could hear my heart falling northeastern wind stirs up memories like photographs the images constructed in your likeness they wouldn’t be a mirror, no, they wouldn’t tell the truth if I met you now I wouldn’t want you like this if I met you now I wouldn’t want you like this and there was nothing I could’ve played I want to feel nothing until you run away I’d tell you one thing if you could hear my heart falling all of the songs you carved out and played they mean fucking nothing without your face I’d tell you one thing if you could hear my heart falling over the sound of your retreat
8.
Snow Heart 04:01
how does it feel to be good? I figure you’d know better than I could like you know how it feels to be beautiful in the dark shone a beam that I knew was a string of white lights leading straight back to you wrap us up and we’d be beautiful you fought so hard for your mind you rewrote every worthless line if I come around for mine make it easy on your time if I come around
9.
word is that you’re sad, it makes me sad too they say the light inside your eyes is a duller blue I wish I could be the one to turn it up again I see you making changes but I don’t know why you think your heart needs fixing or the reasons you would try to fight against the grace that was never meant to bend do you need to play so strong? baby it’s gone on too long you could be easier on your love filling up your backseat with tattered maps folded up inside your mind with everything you lack when you’re out there on the road you always stop to start in the footlights’ glare you feel another way and you face them like you mean it but what you don’t say is: “you can hold my songs but you’ll never take my heart” and do you need to play so strong? baby it’s gone on too long you could be easier on your love did you really wish it gone? baby it’s gone on too long you could be easier on your love when will you love you like I love you? keep this declaration where you need to you won’t ever have to voice it cause you know it’s true I won’t ever say no to holding onto you
10.
speak easy, my darling your dreams are filling up my flask don’t spill me, my darling this is the kind of love that lasts all day or until the stars fall past fall backward, my darling these waiting arms won’t fail you now look forward, my darling these bashful eyes will blink their vows all day or until the stars fall past could you be mine, just for this time? I am not asking for your hand oh baby, not maybe let’s just dance to our favourite band I would have have been so so easy, easy on your heart
11.
oh, sin in the making I am not your connoisseur but I know that you know you would be be the biggest score hard enough to know I want you harder still to know it’s wrong hard enough to even look at you easier to just move along lost the map inside your trap you said I should not wait now it ends we can’t be friends maybe our time came too late hard enough to know I want you harder still to know it’s wrong hard enough to even look at you harder still to just move along
