Track Name: skyline, friction, fire
sun set fire to the leaves
the city glows across the lake
legs encircling your waist
hold me close in the dimming light

i lose sight of the skyline
friction burns my thighs
i feel like i am home
sun set me on fire

sun set fire to my hair
strong hands guiding my fleshy hips
blue eyes set in smooth tanned skin
safe pressed against your chest

i'm breathing into you
breathing into you
cool breeze on my spine
i'm breathing into you
breathing into you
one million insect choir
Track Name: meat and comfort
i am meat and comfort
it doesn't have to be complex
i'm all pathetic eyes
wanting re-defined

why should it be a waste?
i won't let you walk away
as long as i can have your flesh
i'll let you decide the rest

whatever you're looking for
i know it's not with me
i just want a little more
i can be what you need

you'll find someone better
moments or weeks later
i've seen it all before
i don't deserve much more

sick to my stomach
and i can barely see
i will take the scraps i'm fed
as long as you don't leave
Track Name: fever
it was all a mistake
for one brief moment, i felt worthy
thinking you were different
and trusting you to tell to truth

i must've been delirious
a fever spreading from the moment we pressed our bodies together
you're too beautiful for me, i should have known that
i should have known my place

i'm buried in the blankets
i still smell you and i can barely breathe
begging for one last chance
but you won't look me in the eye

i am withered, feeling haunted
shards of glass have replaced my heart
my bones are broken
and i feel cheated by the safety that you radiate

i must've been delirious
a fever spreading from the moment we pressed our bodies together
you're too beautiful for me, i should have known that
should have held my tongue
Track Name: fuzzy peach
the best days start with sunrise in my bed
i always wake before you
and trace the contours of your back

you're my favourite, love
and it feels so good to say

the best days end with a cup of tea in hand
under piles of blankets
with your breath on my neck

you're my favourite, love
and it feels so good to say
and even if you don't feel quite the same
i'm your girl and i will wait
Track Name: out of water
stop existing to wait
be less impatient, less paranoid
cuz it's always okay
and though this pacing feels strange

it's new and i am cancerous
prone to nostalgia and nervousness
freckles and scars

there's no way to compare
the fish and lion
though i worry
and it's always okay
though this pacing feels strange

and i still get scared that i'll ruin everything
a little ragged and unrequited

heart stopped though you never fail
uneven, 'til we're breathing hard
cuz i know what you like

don't give me reasons to be afraid
keep these worries in my head
i don't want to live in fear
Track Name: thin ice
when the weather was cold, so was your love
so i begged and froze
and i was warned that you'll never warm
and i stayed quiet in your strong arms

i've been waiting for the spring
but dreading the changes you promised
and you don't need to go running
as new light finds us entwined
and everything is fine

it's like those little sunbeams are melting frost in your eyes
lying side by side
hoping you'd change your mind
cuz it feels so right and i think i keep you satisfied
Track Name: the very last happy song (rainy nights)
lyin' here beside you, sharing this little bed
rain is falling, thunder creepin' close
safe and content in the haze of your glow
i'll never need anything more

this is why i want to share a home
after long hard days i smile at your face on the pillow
a place to meet again after time apart
somewhere to keep our happy hearts

it's taken so long to find someone like you
took even longer for you to let me in
i watch you sleepin', my face against your chest
and i'll never need anything more

this is why i always dream of you
after restless nights, i awake to a kiss on my shoulder
a place to hold you close when life gets hard
i'll always keep you in my heart
Track Name: drown
sad, sad girl
in a tiny dress
young, young man
with a big, big crush

manson on the stereo
i've got a joint in my hand
bare feet on the dash

and i miss you
with the wind in my hair
and he's saying all the words i long to hear from you
and if i could put his brain inside your head
the things that i would do
the things i'd do to you

the liquor's gone
and the lighting can't be ignored
rain hits my naked skin
and i'm wishing i could drown

sad, sad girl
in a tiny, tiny dress
young, young man
with a big, big crush

and i'm missing you
and he's saying all the words i long to hear from you
and if i could put his brain inside your head
the things that i would do
the things i'd do to you
Track Name: i will leave a trail for you
i was right all along
now there's no more begging you'll let me do
a ruined womb, a year like hilly scenery
you've proven to me that i'm not allowed to stay happy

i've given you everything
i'm lost, dried, half-alive inside
you held me tight through the morning
despite my tears, you are my comfort still

thinking of taking the train out of this place
cuz it would hurt too much to see your sweet face
and i'd sell everything but some clothes and my guitar
and i'd run real fast from where you are

i'll leave a trail of breadcrumbs
and when you realize what you've thrown away
you can follow them to my waiting arms
and maybe this time you'll stay
Track Name: come to bed
everyone has gone to sleep
and it's raining outside
so come, come to bed
lie down beside me
lie
and come, come to bed

the fire's been replaced by stars
thin walls and muffled sounds
so come, please come to bed
let me wrap myself around you
around
and come, come to bed

i might have been drinking
but i promise it's alright
i don't want to spend this night
any other way

northern cold, i can barely feel my toes
but my belly's warm from wine
so come, please come to bed
you can pretend to be in love
pretend
just come, come to bed
Track Name: princess
oh princess
you were mine because...
oh, my un-worth it shines
we were ready to be out of sight

so we ran
the flowers in your hair were farther than i am
and i saw in you
all the beauty i ever needed to

i need you like the sun
when it all
when it tumbles back
in her curly-faced gaze
and in the glaze of her french braid

so many seconds
we were standing numb just because...
but when it all comes back
well it always comes back to you

i need you like the sun
when it tumbles back
in her curly-faced gaze
and in the glaze of her french braid

in the glaze of her french braid
