(Oh No) Midnight is coming Close to the time when I saw you running out of my mind Heart is a beatin' Out of my skin and Stops when I see what I might have been Stop me before I go Lead me to my bones I can be your home I can be your new home (Oh No) My mind's filled with cotton The day's pass to quickly Morning is broken Midnight is comfort So bring me your mind Let straight thinking soothe me Ill be your comfort if you will be mine Stop me before I go Lead me to my bones I can be your home I can be your new home (2x) (Oh No) (19PM)

Undertow 04:34
I miss you, my best friend Gave you up for a swim Got caught in the undertow That's alright I like being pulled Why am I so easily fooled? Why am I so easily pulled? Why does my heart still beat faster when I see you? I hope I burn you like the sun And I hope you feel the current... run around your skin until the water touches bone and you will Feel the same chill that I breathe into my lungs when I Feel the emptiness that lets me know when I'm alone I hope you feel the current run I miss you my new friend Don't ever wanna see you again Just wish you'd pick your phone And tell me you don't wanna be alone (but you're not alone) Why do I always assume? Why am I never immune To anyone who shows me their skeleton? And I'll remember you like our sea I hope you rain down on... me and teach me how to swim the water thats so cold so I can Feel some warmth from memory and find the hidden gold and I can Leave emotion at the door when I climb in your bed I hope you rain down on me I hope you rain down on me (20-21RQ)

I wish I was the wind around you so I could touch your body without ever holding me down I wish I was the wind around you so you could never see me but feel me in your tired aching bones You run me ragged You run me dry You say I use you I wonder why (I am constant I am changing) You wish I was your phone so I could fall asleep beside you and be with you wherever you may go You run me ragged You run me dry You say I use you I wonder why (I am constant I am changing) And I can be whatever my baby wants But I can not afford to lose anymore of my desert thoughts You run me ragged You run me dry I love you Why? (I am constant I am changing) You run me ragged You run me dry I love you Why? (21PM)

Blue Eyes 04:34
I've been living underground I've been looking at the sky and seeing nothing But a man holding me down You came and asked me why I lived this way and suddenly With clarity I had no reason left to stay And you took my hand And you helped me up Now I can feel the blue sky and your heart under my cheek And I can see your blue eyes and your hands all over me In the summer time Before I have to leave And I know we are just two circles spinning Meeting whenever fate is in a funny mood I know I'll see you soon I know I will never hear the words you say to me Silently In the quiet of my room At 6 you pushed me down But you picked me up at the age of 22 And now I feel the blue skies and your heart under my cheek And I can see your blue eyes and your hands all over me And I'll miss you But I have to leave And I am always a step to comfort I am always a ladder to something new I am always a place to hide in I am always supposed to mercy fools And I have always been used But not by you And I can see the blue skies and your heart under my cheek And I can feel those blue eyes and your hands all over me And I'll miss you I'll miss you Those blue eyes Because I have to leave (21BM):)

Fireproof 04:12
Explosions in the sky Cars going by and I'm alone Fireproof, blue Celebrations seek presentations of love songs No meaning to you, Blue I wish they did, I wish they do Light in the navy Flowers in the rocks Gunshots scare silence and leave you all alone I'm fireproof The only thing thats good enough for you Shade made from fake light restrains me Into a temporary artwork for you, Blue Light in the navy Flowers in the rocks Gunshots scare silence and leave you all alone And maybe my thoughts will never have a partner And maybe I will always be a wanderer But I don't know who I am anymore But I still think about you Light in the navy Flowers in the rocks Gunshots scare silence and leave you all alone Light in the navy Flowers in the rocks Gunshots scare silence and leave you all alone Fireproof Blue.

20.7 03:42
I'd like to live in the moment before you wake up and realize you're in the same space Covered in blankets and warm summer lighting Before all the sickness creeps in through the shades And I spend my life in uncomfortable stillness Hoping my mind won't bring its thick fog And I hope for something to give me an answer so I know that I am not lost So I'll house the creatures that come to my window Listen to what they have to say And I will be nice to the ones that bring secrets Even if they are hard to take Ill hold their words to my broken body And hope that they heal me and take me away Ill house the creatures that come to my window Leave it open Leave it wide till I break I wish my feet didn't touch the ground When I walk on the pavement it rattles my bones And I wish that love was always beginning Because what opens will always close And I wish that I could always feel pretty without ever trying like most people are But I want to many things to get in this world Show me what is important and what I don't know And I'll house the creatures that come to my window Listen to what they have to say And I will be nice to the ones that bring secrets Even if they are hard to take Ill hold their words to my broken body And hope that they heal me and take me away Ill house the creatures that come to my window Leave it open Leave it wide till I break At night when its dark I can hear the birds singing Like the sun is high in the blue-day-lit sky And I know someday that I'll feel light And I'll fly with them into the night And know someday that I'll feel light and I'll fly with them into the night (20.7LG)
