This Side 04:03
Honey It's late you've gotta go Didn't mean to take you on smooth dark oak Your voice & breath are sirens Like the light of day A speckle in your iris While you shake like a train Have you ever seen a face That makes you feel like you're spinning in place? If you haven't, haven't yet I highly, highly recommend it You're a freak I love it I'm a liar You're so above this Have you ever taken time Or modest reflection & fall in love with someone's mind? If you haven't, haven't yet I highly, highly recommend it. You're a freak I love it I'm a liar You're so above this Come on honey I like it rough Make me wait so long It fucks me up I have never Seen this side Of love

Someday in another life It'll feel good, It'll feel right Where you're from Will have you laughing If you choose to lie & steal Things you love won't seem real Years from now The same mistake Will never be a lesson Someday when the fire ain't kind It'll burn up half the mountain side Lights & Sounds & Colors Collide We are young So we play with matches Years from now The this, The then Won't matter when 'Cuz it already happened Someday when the fire ain't kind It'll burn up half the mountain side Lights & Sounds & Colors Collide The things we do out of love Have the best reactions

Life’s getting heavy kid Why’d you put it on a shelf? It’s all gonna fall on your face man. Spinning in dizzy reflection Catching snowflakes there’s misconceptions She can tie her shoes all by herself now. Standing on clouds of inception Looking over misconceptions Dry your tears honey The suns gonna rise in Memphis Maybe we could get some breakfast? Rex Land he don’t look like Elvis But he damn well should! Life’s getting heavy kid Why’d you put it on a shelf? It’s all gonna fall on your face man.

Summer Shoes 03:24
I don't know where I'm going But I think i just arrived These images you've been showing Favorite of mine Clouds like balloons Wind inside the dunes Time is moving Far too soon For you I'd ruin My summer shoes If it means that you are warm Darlin' I can keep you safe These things I really swore I would never say You are You are the truth i've longed to know This canvas paints a better home To where we wake in the same room For you i'd ruin My summer shoes I can feel the change now I live inside your name You have kept me warm Darlin' you have kept me safe You have kept me Accountable for the asshole I can tend to be All the laughs & sex While we get stoned On dirty sheets This canvas paints a better home To where we wake in the same room For you i'd ruin My summer shoes I don't know where i'm going But I think I just arrived

Cinci 03:18
I run my hands through dirty hair It's nice to breath in different states Of mind & body It's north Cinci No one's afraid of kissing I bite my tongue so much lately I'm swallowing blood I think i'm in love Such a sweet strange affliction To find an unlocked door When you were running around With keys to everywhere Such a strange sweet affliction I think i'm love The window blew open at 8am Startled I had a feeling you resented your dad My stomach turned My face had creases Changing up the set list for single releases I'm sleeping on my jacket on a strangers couch She was way too young to be in anyones mouth My stomach turned my face had creases You told me you loved me I could not believe this I bite my tongue so much lately I'm swallowing blood I think i'm in love

Where did the time go? It looks like the tide's low While you hang your head Like the reaper collecting his debt Out the window You've lost hope Hold on sweetheart In this shipwreck All alone on different paved roads I don't seem upset It's because I'm not You don't get that We fight more than we fuck This anchor feels stuck After 4 strange years Our crocodile tears We say we'll change Yet stay the same I won't sink again No matter how many times You hit my head Love it seems Like you're sailing with your dreams Until you're splitting up the rent No sex, or respect We're capsizing Well LANDHO! I'm so glad i've stayed a float I see the silhouette of your hand Waving goodbye I've found land Don't be scared Have no fear You'll find another boat In a few years Some regret No more shipwrecks

Fang 02:42
Please don't change your mind Hold these words You should be mine After all these sour times There's strawberry fields A tall glass of... Dance fast or slow Move how you want I won't let you go It's been hard Look what they've done People hurt each other Yet they still find love It's not perfect It's a start I'm done with my head I want to feel with my heart It's been awhile Since i've sang to you I was afraid If you knew That you Are the one You are the one Hush lil darlin Georigies in the garden writtin Here come the Something in the way You chose me
