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

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

Return To Me 03:40
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

Thankful 02:56
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

Crowing 02:50
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

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

The Hole 03:34
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

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.
