Fields 04:32
When you lay down to sleep Do you dream Of unspeakable things Like I do? And in the silence you see What it means There's no one waiting for you Fields are haunted Strange lights Honest And what you say is a sin A breakdown To the point you begin With no sound And all that matters Is here When you know That all that matters is now Fields are haunted Strange lights Honest
And soon you've got to follow But I've got nothing left to lose All my soul swallowed All my soul swallowed But you don't even bother And I may soon follow suit All my soul swallowed All my soul swallowed I've seen a forest fire In my mind, I've seen it clear All my soul swallowed All my soul swallowed The ashes raining down on Me and you, we never knew All my soul swallowed All my soul swallowed You needed someone to cling to And I knew it from the start All my soul swallowed All my soul swallowed Now that this friendship's over Well, I'll pretend and play the part All my soul swallowed All my soul swallowed All my soul swallowed All my soul swallowed
Burn the bridges that you cross Burn the pages you say were lost Every part that you can't see Is revealed to me In this solitary way Every day is like today Where it ends is where it ends Every now and then Now the time is nearly come For you to laugh and come undone Spin those words just like a wheel Show him how you feel To the point of letting go See it die now see it grow Where it ends is where it ends Every now and then
I walk home, alone with you It's okay I wanted to It's okay to be free when It's okay to be a freak I know... Oh, I tried to Oh, I tried to say... I watch Home Alone with you It's alright I wanted to It's alright to be free when It's alright to be a thief I know... Oh, I tried to Oh, I tried to stay... Oh, I tried to Oh, I tried to say...
Eyes 03:48
Try another song Until you get along Your eyes Tell the stories of how you will know The difference between the stop and go In mornings of true love Or so you think Fly another kite Until you get it right Your eyes Tell the glorious of how you get off With nothing but forced love And softest kisses that feel hardly soft It won't stop Shed another tear That one that brings her near Her eyes Tell the story of how she will know The difference between love And so much heartache That feels hardly so Until you recognize all you know Like a weight crushing you Even though it's not what you had planned on And so you hurry but now it's time to go So you stop
Showers 04:03
When I tried to call you When I tried to reach you You were always in the shower And if you knew how much it meant For me to hear your voice Would you stay in the shower? O! And so, I grew tall And went on several dates with girls Who didn't take no showers But what really bugged me Wasn't all those girls But weeds of time killing love's flower O! And still, not a day goes by When I don't think about you And of all the hours... Spent thinking about you Imagining, me too, with you In the showers. O!
So Far 04:12
You laid your head Face down on the bed You hid your eyes Away from me and said, You'll not get hurt... And on that walk I felt so safe Didn't you too? Or was it all erased When you said, You'll not get hurt... And so shall it be In the beginning as in the end We'll meet again Introduced as friends And we'll get hurt. Don't say you will Don't say you won't Don't say anything
I I wanna And I I told ya Why Why I wanna You feel so good in me... You feel so good. You You wanna And you You told me Why Why you wanna I feel so good in you... I feel so good. We We wanna We We wanna
I watched you slowly Slowly undress A tattoo, only Only I confess That I For a moment, I In a moment, I Just a moment, I Loved you You watch me only Only to see Something that slowly Slowly could be And you For a moment, you In a moment, you Just a moment, you Loved me
Morning Star 04:27
It's been a long day And I don't know what to say I say nothing You look so tired Skin is like wire frame A frame stretched too thin You are the morning star It gets darker So much earlier now And now we find ourselves lost But if you took my hand We'll figure out what comes next And next is all there is You are the morning star
Watch what you say I know it'll end this way You've always had to pay no mind No mind But I still try And in time you'll see Just what you're meant to be It always worries me that I still lie Next to you I try So you think it's smart And you'll call it art But it's just a start And not much more And not much more
