Love Is 03:39
Once upon a time when you were young I really wanted to become Someone you looked up to Someone to protect you But we don’t always get just what we want While I was standing on the front Quickly I discovered I’ve always been a lover Oh, I hope now You won’t hold that against me Make me your enemy Once upon a time when I was young I really thought I would become Something of a fighter And someday I’d take you away But we never got very far Oh, I hope now You won’t hold that against me Make me your enemy No, I can’t vow To wrestle the clouds above you But I will always love you And love isn’t what you think it is It’s more powerful than lightning Magical and frightening Oh love, that’s all I can promise But it’s better than fighting And far more exciting Oh love Once upon a time when you were young I really wanted to become Someone you looked up to But I never got very tall And I hope now You won’t hold that against me Make me your enemy No, I can’t vow To wrestle the clouds above you But I will always love you And love isn’t what you think it is It’s more powerful than lightning Magical and frightening Oh love, that’s all I can promise But it’s better than fighting And far more exciting Oh love

The Nest 04:18
Are you coming home tonight Before I go to bed? Heavy are these hazel eyes I’ve been waiting for so long Are you coming home tonight? While the sky's still red Listening for your lullaby I’ve been waiting for your song Black birdie I long to feel your kisses In the middle of our nest Don’t worry I’ll linger in the silence Blind and at my best Are you coming home tonight? Saved you a piece of pie All my love in every bite I’ll be waiting, waiting, waiting Til I die Black birdie I long to feel your kisses In the middle of our nest Don’t worry I’ll linger in the silence Blind and at my best Black birdie I long to feel your kisses In the middle of our nest Don’t hurry Although we keep on missing I know we’ll have the rest Of time Of time

Tomatoes 03:52
There goes another one Another gone You can only imagine Til it happens to you I can’t believe my eyes What a bad surprise Is there anything I can do? These are the words So overheard So new I’ve never lost a friend Smiling was easy then And now it hurts You always saw the best Now where there was a bed I see a hearse And the cat sleeps where you lie And the house creaks as I cry And your garden doesn’t know So I keep finding tomatoes Days come days go And the world is so unforgiving Time didn’t even pause There was no applause We go on living Like we’ve forgotten Like we’ve forgotten you But you’re home here In my head Though the walls speak in your stead And the moon missed the memo So every night it tends to glow And the cat sleeps where you lie And the house creeks as I cry And your garden doesn’t know So I keep finding tomatoes

It’s New Year's Eve And I know you’re somewhere Feeling sad Well I’m not going out And I’ve got nothing to cry about So I’d be glad To take one for the team Shed a couple tears Or maybe more if it means You’d get a break from your broken heart I’ve had a lot of unhappy holidays But it’s not a tie See, I don’t know your pain You’ve got nothing to gain from mine And I’m not qualified... To take one for the team To cry your tears, rewind your years No I can’t even dream What it feels like in your shoes But if there’s one thing I can do I can always sing your blues When the ball drops and champagne pops Will you suddenly feel better Will you find somebody new to kiss? I know healing comes in layers Even though he hears our prayers There’s no quick fix for a pain like this How I wish... I could take one for the team Cry your tears, rewind your years But I can’t even dream What it feels like in your shoes But if there’s one thing I can do I can always sing I can always sing I can always sing your blues When the ball drops and champagne pops Will you suddenly feel better Will you find somebody new to kiss? I know healing comes in layers Even though he hears our prayers There’s no quick fix for a pain like this

I came to say I’m sorry You have every right to be angry With me I came to ask your forgiveness for the past Would you please consider how much I’ve changed? I just want to love you Want to love you And I can do it from over here If you want me to I just want to love you I came to pray All I ever do these days When I’m not counting all the ways I let you down But I’m soft and tender Since my surrender All I ever want to be new And now I just want to love you Want to love you And I can do it from over here If you want me to I just want to love you I just want to love you Want to love you And I can do it from anywhere That you want me to I just want to love you

Red Herring 03:50
Quiet morning Just the sound of a sleepy city yawning Monochrome morning As the silver skies await the dawning I keep checking Instagram for answers cause my grandma never gave me none And I’m burdened cause the world keeps making rules and I can’t seem to follow one Some days I’m up above it all Some days I can’t even find my keys Right now I’m horizontal Oh would that I should be on my knees Quiet morning Except for the sporadic siren blaring Monochrome morning Except for that mysterious red herring I keep plugging away at this dream I’m not even sure I still care about I keep picking away at this seam hoping Soon the whole thing will fall apart It will fall apart Some days I’m up above it all Most days I’m curled up in a ball All of my plants are dying All of my cooking taste the same I just want to be understood and good at everything All of my plants keep dying All of my cooking taste the same I just want to be understood and good at everything I just want to be understood and good at everything Some day I’ll be above it all Some day I’ll be above it all Some day I’ll be above it all Some day I’ll be above it all Quiet morning
