Find Myself 02:40
babe, I know you’ll be so bad for me, bad but you make me feel weak in the knees, i go weak in the knees can’t you see what you do to me, you have me true every time that i find myself within you
2.
Dark 04:11
oh, nighttime, bring your dark and drowsy folds oh, nighttime, bring your wild thoughts of grandiloquence resting themselves in the crook of my shoulder and building a network of nests on endless seaming ends of the bedspread head ooo, ooo, ooo, ooo at daylight break, i will them stay for teatime but like a rambling lover they will take flight in the early hours, sunbeams gently flowing through the blinds, soaking up those behind with the chains of the well-behaved with the chains of the well-behaved whoa, whoa, oh oh oh oh oh oh oh leave me here behind in the dark chains held together tight by warden daylight relinquished by the blustering tides of the pull of the moonbeam’s pride beaming inside of what pieces of life here arrive between left ear and right congregated for sermons elated, for ballads of the crimson tide with the chains of the well-behaved whoa, whoa, oh oh oh oh oh oh oh leave me here behind in the dark
3.
I To You 02:44
you’re a summer breeze, you’re a wave on the sea you’re a fistful of sand, i’m starting to comprehend but what am i to you? oh leave me here behind in the dark you’re a mouthful of fire, you’re a spark on a wire you’re a passing blast of heat, a chemical relief
4.
Lament 04:01
i wanted to love you and to give you everything, but it was too late the night you left, i thought i’d go blind from tears, but it was too late i wanted to love you and to give you all of me, but it was too late the night you left, i thought i’d go blind from tears, but it was too late help me, baby, i’m addicted to the words that flow from your mind and help me, baby, i can’t see whether this is for real help me, baby, i’m addicted to the words that fall from your mind and help me, baby, i can’t see whether this is for real ‘cause you made me want and want and want and want to love you and to give you all of me, but it was too late the night you left, i thought i’d go blind from tears, but it was too late
5.
Stardust 05:44
of all my useless alibis, of all my promises to god i’m still on this lonesome byway, stepping out on this highway without so much a left look or a right next time you ask me if i’m alright, take a good look in my eyes wonder if then you could see all the truest parts of me bursting underneath the phrase “i’m fine” nothing can pick me up, nothing can bring me down dust to stars and stars to dust, said the star-made man rest assured, our worried hearts will soon enough be sand my love is heavy, my love is light my love burns quiet, my love burns bright but dust to stars and stars to dust, said the star-made man rest assured our worried hearts will soon enough be sand oh, oh, oh oh oh... standing here, i can see nothing to fear and looking ‘round, i can see i’m standing on the ground
6.
Sunshine 03:35
whoa, can you feel that sunshine, can you feel it, can you feel it coming ‘round the bend? whoa, can you feel that love, can you feel it, can you feel it coming ‘round the bend? someday we’ll look around and see everybody singing as freely as you and me but whoa, can you feel that joy, can you feel it coming ‘round the bend? don’t forget that, don't forget that... whoa, can you feel that peace? feel it, feel it coming ‘round the bend
7.
go down low, low, low as you can go then dig forever, there you’ll find me, my psyche i can hurt, and i can kill, i can terrorize i can lie, and i can deceive, i can manipulate anyone that i please so go down low, low, low as you can go then dig forever, there you’ll find me, my psyche and when you come crashing down you’ll look around and never know that it was me so go down low, low, low as you can go then dig forever, there you’ll find me, my psyche
8.
sometimes when i open my eyes, half my body’s paralyzed and the weight of the world clings behind my eyelids, black and white leave me be, don’t want to fight sit on up now, give yourself a good slap find your shoes, sugar, now you’re on the right track give yourself some space to breathe and then you’ll be on your feet singin’ “don’t you worry” sing “i can take whatever comes my way, i can take whatever comes! i can take whatever comes my way, i can take whatever comes!” don’t you know that when you’re feeling low, that you can make it go far from home and free your soul, just take a walk right down the road roll along right down the road walk along here to the beat and feel the street beneath your feet bring your friends and soon you’ll see what medicine is melody like these crazy cats, running ‘round in their flats, singing “life gave me more than i need! it’s a miracle that i should breathe in this world, it’s the exodus of misery!” cause i can take whatever comes my way, i can take whatever comes i can take whatever comes my way, i can take whatever comes
9.
oh my love, i cannot see your face but i will love you until my body breaks though you roam as free as birds and snakes, i will love you until my body breaks watch the sea calling out your name, as i will love you until my body breaks rising high from the dust of days, i will love you until my body breaks though we go through many earths and quakes, i will love you until my body breaks when the world turns and backs away, i will love you until my body breaks every sunrise across your face, i will love you until my body breaks open eyes and illuminate how i will love you until my body breaks lay your head, rest easy in this vow: i will love you beyond what life allows
10.
if we run now, they might not catch us, love past all traces of the life they’d have us bluff if we run now, they might not catch us, love let them wonder where we’ll lay our heads tonight if we run now, they might not catch us, love tell them of this race that we have had enough run now and don’t look back, leave regret behind meet me at the gate and see what lies beyond give all that we have to our new paradigm trusting in all that we don’t know to carry us ever on when we lay our bodies down tonight under the stars our hearts will rise so bright, they might not come back down
