Nosebleed 02:49
I never meant to make your heart my favourite thing that day the sun was shining when it all came down I cut my fingers up just trying to get in there was an opening then the blood fell down you know exactly why you can’t sleep through the night claw back the shadows and step out into your light muster up your valour, girl, and you might see your might why won’t you just fight? I held your secrets up so tight against my heart window was falling slowly then it crashed down I kept your breath under my skin beneath my scars there was no time for screaming when it all came down you know exactly why you can’t sleep through the night claw back the shadows and step out into your light muster up your valour, girl, and you might see your might why won’t you just fight? I never meant to make your heart my favourite thing there was an opening you know exactly why you can’t sleep through the night claw back the shadows and step out into your light muster all your valour, girl, and you might see your might get up and fuckin’ fight

hey step on up yeah I can feel your breath it’s like an autumn breeze blowing through a late summer afternoon only at night can I hear my heart break when the lights fall low could you pick it up, spark it up hold onto it until the morning? iridescent eyes shimmer like a rainfall out from undercover I am walking into your storm hey, now or no? my dangling heart-ache is hanging so low could you pick it up, spark it up hold onto it until the morning? if I could be… the one who walks you home hey, now or no?

Stalker 02:53
in the night I hear you breathe from the top to the bottom of your lungs and you carry me through the day and the next week when you feel a weight upon your heart you think of me in your bed and on your skin from the top to the bottom of your high you let me in in my head and in my sin I can’t think of another single solitary place within when you’re mine when you’re here from the top to the bottom of my soul I’ll keep you, dear and your blood on my teeth when you’re looking at the meaning of your life you look at me in the night I watch you sleep from the top to the bottom of the morning you carry me in the night I watch you sleep from the top to the bottom of the morning you carry me

Henry 03:47
oh my love you were fair like a hurricane hit the streets just to dance in the pouring rain you were made of light came into your town for a revolution caught a harvest moon falling straight into the sun we were made of light we were made of light how you held me up how I was holding on and the darkness was closing in it was closing in was closing in how I made you mine how you took my heart and the morning was rising up it was rising up was rising up and I did not take your picture you were born in the east from a hearty stock spent every day working for your body clock you were paid in light baby when we met there was no contemplation gave you heart and my hand and a dedication and your name in lights your name in lights how you held me up how I was holding on and the darkness was closing in it was closing in was closing in how I made you mine how you took my heart and the morning was rising up it was rising up was rising up and I did not take your picture oh my love I carried your heart through the sidewalks of your city to the top of the tallest building and i let it flut- ter how you held me up how I was holding on and the darkness was closing in it was closing was closing in how I made you mine how you hold my heart and the morning was rising up it was rising up was rising up but I did not take your picture oh my love you were fair like a hurricane hit the streets just to dance in the pouring rain until the sun came up

oh my dear whose hands are on you tonight? oh my dear whose heart are you keeping tonight? cause I’ve been waiting all these days to hear your voice and touch your face drinking through the nights alone and counting time till you come home oh my dear whose eyes are you holding tonight? oh my dear which lie will you crawl from tonight? cause I’ve been waiting all these days to hear your voice and touch your face just drinking through these nights alone and counting time till you come home I’ve been waiting on your call patiently? Oh, not at all you accept my known advances so why am I the only one who’s taken chances? my lovely heart your siren’s calling all these months I have been falling come home and I will make it right and forget those hands on you tonight oh my dear

Requite 03:50
I’ve got a flame that won’t die I’ve got a flame that won’t die climbing to the sky I’ve got a flame that won’t die I’ve got a heart that won’t light I have got a heart that won’t light a love I can’t ignite I’ve got a heart that won’t light do you think that all I’ve got is time here to wait on your fleeting mind? do you think I’m holding your hands just hoping that you bleed on mine? if you keep it up up, darling, with your heart heart letting-down there’ll be nothing left but ashes by the time you come around I’ve got a pain I can’t fix I’ve got a pain I can’t fix no medicine for this I’ve got a pain I can’t fix I’ve got a song I can’t sing I have got a song I can’t sing yes I saw your ring I’ve got a song I can’t sing do you think that all I’ve got is time here to wait on your fleeting mind? do you think I’m holding your hands just hoping that you bleed on mine? if you keep it up up, darling, with your heart heart letting-down there’ll be nothing left but ashes by the time you come around I’ve got a girl I can’t save I’ve got a girl I can’t save gone under the waves I’ve got a girl I can’t save and I’ve got a flame that won’t die I’ve got a flame that won’t die climbing to the sky I’ve got a flame that won’t die

Thaw 04:21
stay with me till the spring we won’t call it settling just a fire-kissed winter fling gone with the snow melt for me in the night warm up in the dawning light in my mind not in my sight if you say so go go go go don’t go love no no no no I know— no you could be my carnival and you could be my funeral but you won’t be typical (this I do know) maybe you’ll be my enemy the drift that’ll haunt my dreams shining so bright you’ll gleam I’m struck blind by your glow go go go go don’t go love no no no no I know— no I could never see your eyes dim in the early dark when the ice cracks under us will you find your heart? I hope you find your heart melt with me tonight

you think that you’re a secret but really you’re a window with the shades up you fuck-up I know I know you play me like a stranger but I’ve been in your sideshow how ’bout I call up our dust-up I know I know and you kept all my love take your tokens veils and cloaks and everything we’ve sown say goodbye don’t you cry just take your little heart take your little heart home you touched me like a cipher armed with an arrow it was bloodless not gutless I know I know you smiled just like a liar grinning through your last blow “don’t do this” you were ruthless I know I know and you kept all my love take your tokens veils and cloaks and everything we’ve sown say goodbye don’t you cry just take your little heart take your little heart home

North Star 04:05
you are made of fire and I, of dynamite elemental, consequential revelations incidental still, a better love I have not known I carried you into the dark an unknown punctuation mark a breath apart here comes the spark here comes the spark and you are made of rainfall and I, of spiderweb complicator, oscillator this reluctant hesitater step by step into your smoking hands I carried you into the dark an unknown punctuation mark a breath apart here comes the spark here comes the spark light of my heart I know you now I know you now I know
11.
tonight when you showed up at my door I knew just what you were waiting for how can you want me to fall again? how can you want this all again? take some of this hurt I’m holding I’m still hanging by my throat here maybe someday we can move along that night when you showed up at my door said I was all you were waiting for by the time I knew it you had run away how can you want this all again? take some of this hurt I’m holding I’m still hanging by my throat here maybe someday we can move along all those nights we spent just screaming I need something new to believe in maybe someday we can move along how I used to wait for you to come around kept digging up my heart out of your shallow ground baby when you were on you were really fuckin’ on but I can’t wait anymore for your heart to become strong take some of this hurt I’m holding I’m still hanging by my throat here maybe someday I can move along by then you’ll be gone
