EVERYWHERE I GO

Can't tell one day from the other no
There's no setting a midsummer sun 
And I can never recover no
Keep running, keep, keep running

Oh wait, have you got to go?
Say it ain't so, say it ain't so
You know I wanted to go slow
Say it ain't so, say it ain't so

Everywhere I go, we run out of sight, we run out of mind
Everyone I know, they run out of love, they run out of line

I heard that you got a place somewhere
About a million miles away, but I'm still hearing myself say
You're taking your time and I'm just give 
Giving it away

Everywhere I go, we run out of sight, we run out of mind
Everyone I know, they run out of love, they run out of line


PAINT

June was over way too soon
Another day done and I've got nothing to do
Lying in the sun all afternoon
June was over way too soon

I'm painting my bedroom blue
Trying to get away from you
I'm painting my bedroom blue
Trying to get away from you

Darling July don't you fly by
I need a little time to occupy my mind
I wanna go dive in indigo sea
Darling July don't you fly by me

I'm painting my bedroom blue
Trying to get away from you
I'm painting my bedroom blue
Trying to get away from you

I can't face another August in this place
Wrap myself in another coat of paint
What a beautiful shade, what a day, what a waste
August in a day dream I don't want to wake

I'm painting my bedroom blue
Trying to get away from you
I'm painting my bedroom blue
Trying to get away from you


BLEED

Why try to run when you can't even talk?
Why try to shout when you can't even talk?
And you only hear what you want to hear
The years rolling easy with your kind of ears

When you bleed a little love on me
You bleed a little love on me

And there's no use you kicking back shaking your head
With your tribe of sycophants breaking your bread
And the days drip, and stick to you like honeycomb
And a ghost on your lips says there's no place like home

When you bleed a little love on me
You bleed a little love on me

A part of me, departed
A part of me

A part of me departed (a part of me you wore)
A part of me(then what was I before?)


FEELS LIKE HOME

Stars were falling right out of the sky
Falling slow like snow on my bed
We're brighter than bone by the light of the moon
Softer than silver of a spider's thread

Oh my god just the way that you breathe in
Feels like home to me, feels like home
Oh my god I can't believe it
Feels like home to me, feels like home

I wanna fall just under your skin
Shaking the walls like thunder for fun
I wanna stay just under your breath
But you got this way of holding my tongue

Oh my god just the way that you breathe in
Feels like home to me, feels like home
Oh my god I can't believe it
Feels like home to me, feels like home


VULTURES

We don't need to talk
I can wait, I can replicate enough
Right behind these walls
You can stay, you can isolate my love

All these vultures flying down, lead me to their feeding ground
All these vultures flying down, break my skin and make me howl

Frightened sightless words
That you say, they're manipulating me
And they feed those god damn birds
Patiently, they'd be waiting in the trees

All these vultures flying down, lead me to their feeding ground
All these voices flying round, break my skin and make me howl


HERE COMES THE RAIN AGAIN

Here comes the rain again
Falling on my head like a memory
Falling on my head like a new emotion
I want to walk in the open wind
I want to talk like lovers do
I want to dive into your ocean
Is it raining with you?

Talk to me, like lovers do
Walk with me like lovers do
Talk to me, like lovers do

Here comes the rain again
Raining in my head like a tragedy
Tearing me apart like a new emotion
I want to breathe in the open wind
I want to kiss like lovers do
I want to dive into your ocean
Is it raining with you?

Talk to me, like lovers do
Walk with me like lovers do
Talk to me, like lovers do


DON’T HIDE YOUR LOVE AWAY

You dream in silent stone
Where do you go, where do you go?
Moonbeam on collarbone
Where do you go, where do you go?

I was only trying to make you stay
I was only trying to make you wait
Don't you hide your love away

Lying there, laid bare
Holding you in, holding you in
At the end of your shoulder blade
You're folding me in, folding me in

I was only trying to make you stay
I was only trying to make you wait
Don't you hide your love away
You're hiding your love

Mornings like raindrops fall
Where did you go, where did you go?
Light is a cannonball
Why don't you call why don't you call

I was always trying to make you stay
I was always trying to make you wait
Don't you hide your love away
You're hiding your love


NEW DAY

Smiling with the sunrise come on now open your eyes
Oh hey new day
You're thinking too much it's just another day to survive
Oh yeah yeah yeah

Didn't we dance all night?
Didn't we do it right?

Oh hey new day
Oh hey new day

Tripping up the stairs but I can't feel my feet on the floor
Oh no no no
Kicking off our shoes with the blues bouncing off of the walls
Oh yeah yeah yeah

Didn't I take your hand? 
Didn't I understand?

Oh hey new day
Oh hey new day

Smiling with the sunrise come on now open your eyes
Oh hey new day
You're thinking too much it's just another day to survive
Oh yeah yeah yeah

Didn't I take your hand? 
Didn't I understand?

Oh hey new day
