about

It's free again. Why not?
You can still buy all the other projects. I like it when that happens. Supporting music in the present tense is a good thing.

Track Name: Always Have My Love
I'm not here for your confession
We've said all there is to say
This house was made of tinder
And we both set off the flames
I went wild in the wreckage
You were wandering off into the smoke
There shouldn't be a chance we could recover
I shouldn't be holding you so close

But I still see you as you are
Before the tears, beneath the scars
Kisses sweet and words so rough
You will always have my love

I've no interest in perfection
I just want some honesty
And our little indiscretions
Are just spittle in the sea
Why'd we think that we were different
Everybody knows it's nothing new
So someone might've spent the night beside you
But he can't love you like I do

'Cause I still see you as you are
Before the tears, beneath the scars
Kisses sweet and words so rough
You will always have my love

I can see you in my mind
With half a smile and hungry eyes
And it may never be enough
But you will always have my love
Track Name: Blood Pressurize
i know i'm the shit cause you're with me
you make the world spin faster
you give it gravity
and the taste of a breath from the base of your neck
it sets me shivering
you're everything i've ever wanted
you're everyone i've ever wanted
and i know what i want
yeah i know what i want

push ourselves together lock and key
you make my heart beat harder
loud as a symphony
so when the gas runs out and the money's all gone
we'll be right back here where we started from
and it's everything we wanted
it's everything we need
and i know what i want
yeah i know what i want

come back here
you make my blood pressurize
come quickly
you make my blood pressure rise
come back here
you make my blood pressurize
move faster
you make my blood pressure rise
i'm not gonna do this alone
you make my blood pressurize
you make my blood pressure rise
Track Name: Don't Lose Your Voice
i lay awake
i lie in wait
we're running out of time
running out of patience
and every day that passes offers
one more line that i can't swallow

don't lose your voice
don't lose your voice

i sigh and strain
can't say it straight
we're running out of time you know
running out of patience
and every day that passes offers
one more rule that i won't follow

we're running out of time you know
running out of patience
we're running out of time you know
running out of patience

don't lose your voice
don't lose your voice

don't lose your voice
don't lose your voice
Track Name: Return To Me
we will see the sun rise
twice within a day
champagne through a straw, love
and tablets from the tray

with a finger i will lift you
gently from your seat
and pull you near
embrace you as we spin
all grace and beauty
and once the earth regains its hold
you will return with me

will you think of him here
when i've taken you so far
and i have made you mine
beneath the naked stars

with a kiss i will claim you
as my own
the heavens are my kingdom
the galaxy my home
so no matter where you go
you will return to me
you will return to me
Track Name: Thankful
forgive me this sin
i’m falling over
flashing tin grins
and rolling in clover
so ready to get out
and eager to please
well, it’s late in the day in the middle of a life
but it’s early in the century
i never got it, i never got it before

hey, hello, how do you get on
with so much undone, it’s like it was before
we’ve both got a lot to be thankful for
we’ve both got a lot to be thankful for

forgive me my tongue
it doesn’t know what it’s doing
it used to get washed out
now it’s undisciplined and crude
i’m losing my language
and calling a truce
and the shape of the thoughts in my head
aren’t right for the words i’ve got to use

i got it never, never it got i before

hey, hello, how do you get on
with so much undone, and still you shine like a sun
we’ve both got a lot to be thankful for
we’ve both got a lot to be thankful for

white dwarf, red giant
it’s empty in space
and where there’s matter there’s violence
i never got it, i never got it before

hey, hello, how do you get on
with so much undone, and still you shine like a sun

we’ve both got a lot to be thankful for
we’ve both got a lot to be thankful for
Track Name: Crowing
been waiting to find
you could've been happier
given the time
if he'd make up his mind
you'd give yourself to anybody
who would cross that line

and it was never a question
you were crowing for repair
you'd give him love and affection
but you couldn't keep him there

get over regrets
while you were sleeping with the angels
he was under the bed
and the more skin that you shed
the more that the air in your throat will linger
when you call him your friend

and it was never a question
you were crowing for repair
you'd give him love and affection
but you couldn't keep him there

staring at a cold little hand
reading fault lines
of a shell of a man
you were waiting
for a word from above
wouldn't you know it
no answer ever did come

and it was never a question
he was crowing for repair
you'd give him love and affection
but you couldn't keep him there
Track Name: Everything But You
don’t know what to say, i don’t know what to do
everything gets lost, everything but you
i’m not sure what it takes, fuzzy on the rules
everything’s so dark, everything but you

i’ve forgotten how to pray, forgotten what was true
everything feels bought, everything but you
the battle of the bands, the rattle of the news
everything’s too much, everything but you

break me on the wheel of fortune
take me to the town for torture
all this entertainment’s no good
it just leaves me hungry for you

i’m messing up the words, murdering the tune
everything’s so slack, everything but you
something’s got to change, someone’s got to choose
everything’s sewn up, everything but you

take me dancing pale and knock-kneed
spin me through the crowd and drop me
dizzy in the middle of the floor
oh my god you terrify me
oblivious you breeze right by me
spilling wine and melting ice cream
random, warm and mesmerizing
you terrify me, you are everything
you terrify me, you are everything

well i’ll just stick to what i know,
im proud to be your fool
everything’s a crutch
everything but you
Track Name: The Hole
behind the house
the ground has opened up
and there's so deep a hole
it's bottom can't be found
it sucks the air inside
and makes quiet sea sounds

we sometimes stand
and linger at the edge
we like to dare each other
how close that we can get
and there's a pact we have
if one should fall the other follows in

a letter came the other day
from clear around the globe
it said:
we hope that you're the ones
on the other end of the hole
could you take a few things back?
our country is getting full

behind the house
the ground has opened up
