Swimmer 03:08
the way your arm felt under the soft felt of the blanket - you may not know it but i am loving you. with my fingers on your shoulders, i am loving you. i wanted to sing for you so i’m gonna sing for you. i hope you’re listening to me wherever you are. come a little closer, give me something i can hold. i wanna know they can’t take this away from me. and i knew you when you were swimming. you were stronger than i ever was. and i am loving you. i wanted to sing for you so i’m gonna sing for you. come a little closer, give me something i can hold. i wanna know they can’t take this away from me.

take away the ache. i lie awake in the morning, before the thoughts start forming, getting in my own way. nobody’s gonna save me and i’ll be disappointed. are your eyes yet open while you’re facing the other way? and i know that i’m asking for more than you can give, but isn’t love just living like that? take away the ache, make it over, make it an ember. we could keep each other warm, but only if we don’t remember. or turn it into dust, apparently it’s just a powder. it rises and it bursts and i feel it like i wanna. and i know that i’m asking for more than you can give, isn’t love just living like that? i’ll follow wherever you like. oh it happens all the time. the more you love, the more you lie. say you’re not going anywhere. i’ll follow wherever you like. oh it happens all the time. the more you love, the more you lie.

Party's Over 03:23
outside the party, i’m in over my head. i wasn’t invited. i wander the streets alone instead. don’t you know that the party’s o- don’t you know that the party’s over but you’re just getting started? oh, just keep walking. and you’re never gonna give it up. and you’re gonna have to make it through the night without stopping. just keep walking. after the party, i’m in for something new. i haven’t decided, but i know that what i choose is not for you. i wish they could see me now. i wish i had known it then. i wish i could tell myself “don’t do it for anyone else.” don’t you know that the party’s o- don’t you know that the party’s over but you’re just getting started? oh, just keep walking. and you’re never gonna give it up. and you’re gonna have to make it through the night without stopping. just keep walking. nobody’s gonna do it my way. nobody’s gonna do it my way. so i walk through the dawn and i don’t look back anymore. now that the party’s o- now that the party’s over, yeah, we’re just getting started. oh, just keep walking. and we’re never gonna give it up. and we know we’re gonna make it through the night without stopping. we just keep walking. just keep walking. just keep walking.

somebody buy me roses. somebody make sure i get out of bed today. somebody be my baby. somebody see that i don’t get in my own way. somebody hold my head up. somebody hope that i don’t give up, not this time. somebody check my email. somebody just give me the damn highlights. i don’t wanna be here. how’m i supposed to be healed? i don’t wanna be here, staring at the wall again. somebody hold me hostage. somebody make me think i might be worth something. somebody take a photo. somehow i know i won’t be remembering. somebody be my angel. somebody change the angle i see all the time. somebody fast forward. somebody just give me the damn highlights. i don’t wanna be here. how’m i supposed to be healed? everybody goes home and the way there is not clear. i don’t wanna be here. how’m i supposed to be healed? everybody grows up and leaves me in the tower. drinking from the bottle, knowing what it does to me. seeing every color sliding into shadow. while i can, i will carry my own bags. and i will call my father when i know that he’s alone. and i will plant a plot of yellow flowers. they’ll be a sign to whichever one of us survives. and when i see the ghost of orange blossoms in the snow, i’ll know it was you. and i’m coming soon.

sodium & cigarettes: i’m a mess in every respect. do i deserve what’s coming to me? i was holding my breath every hour of the day, wishing you would come back, knowing you won’t stay. but i believe in something more ok, give it another day. i’ll see you in the morning. it’s too late now to start taking it back so i better be looking forward. sodium & cigarettes: i made a bed, now i lie in it. no one’s gonna do it for me. i was holding my breath every hour of the day, wishing you would call up, knowing what you’d say. but i believe in something more ok, give it another day. i’ll see you in the morning. it’s too late now to start taking it back so i better be looking forward. in my dreams, we were flying. now we’re falling back. is it too late now to start running? in my dreams, we were flying. now we’re falling back. and it’s too late now to start running.
