Track Name: two tapes
You go and run away,
You go and run away,
You go and run away,
It all sounds the same
(rep.)
Track Name: pluckstring
Sitting on the oceanside
And I can no longer hide
No longer
It’s stronger
Track Name: swoons and dies
I have danced a good long while in your outworn shoes
And now these laces have come loose
Oh, and I need to choose
That I am through with my blues
Oh but what would it prove
After we’ve died and swooned
You gotta help me choose
Track Name: fleeting
Now the light is getting low
In the overgrown road that we follow
The blindness had us up in bows
All we really ever know
Is each feeling is fleeting

Visions never burned so bright, so clear
Woke with blooming eyes for you, my dear
Track Name: something out there
When I wake these days my lake like eyes are lightly lapping
At the something out there that’s never had me lacking
The dream I’m spun out of
Is the only choice: love
And it’s heady up above but blue heaven’s right here.
And I’m finally seeing clear
I’m gonna hold it dear
Don’t it feel damn good to feel good?
He asks me
Track Name: lazy lemons
Everything wrapped up in twine
Rippling, begging to unbind
Tingling at the base of your spine
And what gathered all this up in you?
What made it true?
Sun’ll come and I’ll rise
Heart will crack like breaking light
Lover know when I am blind
That my eyes are still so full of you
Track Name: go back to sleep
Glancing up I’m asking please
Through the fog and fantasies
Teasing dreams and splitting seams
I’m breathing reams reaping steam
And nightly my demons come scheming in sound
How many times quietly can I be drowned
Toss turn and listen, what’s singin down deep
I don’t want to hear it I don’t want to go back to sleep


Laugh in the face of my quiet heart
Re-light the pathways all in the dark
Banish the fear and it’s haunting mark
And start knowing me knowing me
Start showing me
Track Name: swudge grass
Lonely, how lonely, how holy it went: my heart
Heavy, oh heavy, oh how was it sent
Up up and away, carrying this love in some foggy mirror
And it’s no clearer than yesterday
Calling all moments whose momentum’s blocked
‘Cuz it’s time to tick now
Falling between all the cups and the clocks
You can’t have it your way:
Almighty memory measured and labeled, down on the table,
Lines to be erased


Dewdrops in morning light drowning the right
To buy out your past
Dotting your body like stars in the sky
And they make a map
So look up, lay down in the grass
Track Name: black and blue remix
Oh my dear, oh my dear, I'm seeing awful clear now you're here.
Oh my love, oh my love, it runs, jumps to the deep when you're near.
And darling please stop stealing my poor breath
Because I haven't had enough today.
And I know you won't try to steal my heart
But it was yours, long gone away from the start.

In the end, in the end I guess we can pretend that this mess didn't matter.
But today, yes today, you've changed the way I play
And now my toys are tattered.
Though it's really just a couple facts, do you think I could come clean?
Even if those walls all burned to ash
Would you let me give you everything like I asked?

Because on one holy howling Hollow's Eve
And almost every other day
I came so close, so close, so close, so far away
From taking my own breath away
Simply by settin' myself near you.

Busy brains, paper cranes, cowboy coffee mornings
And I will miss you dear, yes even the madness
Stupid games, maybe electric trains you make me want to give you
Every single thing you never even wanted.
Tired eyes, lofty sights, you know I think
I'm done with all my buying all that brave bullshit
But for you, oh for you,
You know I'd fight and fight and fight and fight
Until my eyes were black and blue.

My eyes are turning true for you.
They're true
And you're blue.
