Track Name: New Home (remix)
(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)
Track Name: Undertow
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)
Track Name: Run Me Ragged
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)
Track Name: Blue Eyes
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

Track Name: Fireproof
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.

Track Name: 20.7
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)
