- Track Name: Same Bed
I will teach you to fly if you promise to ground me. We will take on new heights, as you hover above me. I will keep your confidence pure. If you will help me to be sane. One day we will sleep in the same bed. And all of the losses that we insisted on counting will be worth precisely nothing. You can be who you dream if you let me tell you you’re lovely. We will both surely bring the stunning along with the ugly. There will be days that you are too much and I am simply not enough. But on those days we will sleep in the same bed and all of the losses that we insisted on counting will be worth precisely nothing.
- Track Name: The Only Miracle
She’ll work her fingers to the bone and we will not know. We will not know. We’ll hide the cost, whatever it takes. And gladly consume everything she’ll ever make. I would like to alleviate that for you. Diagnosis complete, we took notes and analyzed his speech, But whispers become echoes in a young man’s soul. Another case we’ll add to the load. But surely he knows. Surely he knows. I would like to alleviate that for you. But the only miracle is that I live where I do. I never asked one thing from you. Now the mystery is somehow I became the guilty. Stunning, aggravating, this is the risk that we have not been taking. Stunning, aggravating, this is the life that we have not been making. And we lie and say I would like to alleviate that for you. But the only miracle is that I live where I do. I never asked one thing from you. Now the mystery is somehow I became the guilty.
- Track Name: Storylines
I’ve been writing new storylines again. Starring the form of a friend. Set in a city-scape with someone who can take a stand. I’ve been writing new storylines again. Starring the form of an alternate friend and set in a city-scape with someone who can take a stand, meet reasonable demands. I’ve been practicing scenarios where I’m in control of where my feet go, how hard my heart will follow. There are scenes with bold colors and sharp lines. All I need is the right kind of time to pour unnecessary bottles down the drain. To say the words that I’ve been reciting. I wanna change everything thing in this place. Ill start with how I write my A’s.
I’ve been practicing everything that you had been despising and wearing thin my welcome. They’ll all say it isn’t fair the way that she just disappeared and refuses to come to the house on the street where we grew up. And the room where I clearly fell in love now I’ve got stacks of cards that I’ll never send. A slew of words I’m pretty sure I think I meant. Reminders in every space I swear I’m changing how I write my A’s. If it takes four days to make it through one page then I will wait. But if, in the end you still don’t understand then I’m done trying to explain.
- Track Name: Underneath the Window
We can take it down if you want to. We can take it down and box it away. We can take it down if that’s what you’re asking me to do. We won’t even need it on a rainy day. The vines will grow, you and I will know, it’s buried deep beneath the window pane. Or we could burn it down if you want to. We can burn it down it’s easy to fake. We can burn it down. We’ll start in the living room. We won’t even need to give our things away.
The flames will rise, we’ll catch each other’s eyes and know that’s where we buried all of the pain. Or we could turn around if you want to. We can turn around insurance will pay. We can turn around, god I’m practically begging you. I won’t even ask you to explain. We said those words a million breaths ago now we say these words because we know. Let’s grab the dirt and go get the box we buried underneath the window.
- Track Name: Lullaby
Lullaby, please don’t go. I have loved you. Lullaby you gave me the sweetest dreams and kept me from the most frightening things. If I cannot sleep will you come back for me? Lullaby you kept me safe. From the horrible thoughts that come when I am wide away. Lullaby if ten years from today, I can’t remember your melody or your ways. Please show me your face. I’ve no bad feelings about you. And I understand why you think that you need to leave. Usher in new dreams and responsibility. Lullaby I’ve one if there comes a day when I have nothing left, but shriveled dreams inside a shriveled chest then do your thing and put this girl to rest. Lullaby.
- Track Name: Casualties
You had the chance to mess it all up again. And I saw you take it without much hesitation. And all those dreams you swore you would do anything to see. Now I see you were faking. These are things we do to get where we’re headed to and the casualties are part of the process. Maybe I lied too, but at least I wanted to believe it. For countless days I lived based on faith in smoke signs and appropriate steps to take. And it’s crazy to say but there are days that I dearly miss that which never existed and these are the things we do to get where we’re headed to and the casualties are part of the process. Maybe I lied too, but at least I wanted to believe it.
I don’t mind the solo kind if it means I don’t owe you any of my time. If I opened any blind eyes. If I convinced any dying minds it was just something I did. And the casualties were a part of it. I know I lied to you, but I really did want to believe every single word that I said. It was just something that I did.
- Track Name: Beautiful Body
Light it up to lay it down. Hold it close to tug it around. Whisper songs you know are only known by the lonely and the brave. Get your initials on the body of a beautiful slave. Dress it up to take it out. Say what you can to keep it around. Intoxicate it to make it yours. But don’t be surprised when they find her dead at your door. No one can say that we didn’t warn you. No one can say that you were not properly warned. They’ll find your initials on the body of a beautiful whore.
- Track Name: Alarmingly the Same
We had the same steps, yours were always quicker than mine. We breathed in the same breath your harmonies were easy to find. I walked the fine line for so many years that no one was surprised to hear that I had finally changed my mind. Our conversations are now so strange and you are alarmingly the same. I told a little lie and you told me the littlest truth. We both went home that night to sleep it off until the morning would prove, time heals all wounds but doesn’t guarantee the bonds of youth.
Our conversations are so strange these days and you are alarmingly the same. I think about you when I’m up late every Saturday and in the afternoons when I know that you pray. I know we said some things would never change, but you are alarmingly the same.
