Track Name: Salisbury
you look so pretty in the dark
and we've never walked so far
buried beneath the stars

kisses on the mountain-tops remind me
of every little game
married just not in name

oh maybe every night grows cold
but i'll never leave you shaking
and the colors fade and lovers fall
as i feel the sweetness, forever speechless
everything that you don't want back
every little secret memory
i will carry back, with love and more
because i feel as if i'm breaking into your heart

you're swimming circles in my heart
drowning in movie scenes
cutting into your jeans
listening to songs that make us feel like
riding to Salisbury
lighting the kerosene
floating into a dream
Track Name: All The Bleeding Roses
on our way
it was burning fast
we were hurling past
the moribund faces fading away
and then break apart
like a million hearts
but she wouldn't stop the bleeding

cut the stone and you find
you're all gone
strings have come undone
your faith has never been so shaky
you lie awake thinking of
how you fell in love
your mind just won't forget
all the summer nights you spent inside a dream
the kisses on the sheets
oh so sweet

you don't even notice
all the bleeding roses
you want me to close it
wasn't me that chose this

night and day
she was far away
in my arms today
tomorrow a distant feeling
dark yellow marigolds
that i carry home
rewind our heads
but the sun don't ever rise
like in those pictures
we're swimming in a dream
and what a dream
until you're gone

you don't even notice
all the bleeding roses
you want me to close it
wasn't me that chose this
now i'm feeling dizzy
love, it seems so grisly
but i hear your silence
you could be so violent

i can't see the line between us
underneath me fire's roaring

maybe not our time yet
but i think we'll find it
Track Name: Lights
fate told me i can't retreat
three trees and a wedding bell
and a heart made to break
two pieces separate
memories please just let me be
unseen in the merry maze

and the look on their face
makes me forget the weight
i'm falling into the electric lights
a new love

just like a lonely dream
my heart melts into the see
i might never fish it back out

i wonder why i left the key
she would never let it go
in a blink imagine
a fleeting heart of passion
stifled cries in the morgue
discreet tears carry me away

in the cold, cold night
by the ice so white
a colorful surprise awaits me
i'm falling into the electric lights
a new love

just like a lonely dream
my heart melts into the see
i might never fish it back out
a new love is carrying me
Track Name: Miscollected
wondering why wanting
love seems so daunting to me
heart feels so shallow
pierced with an arrow, and i bleed
on a boat, unashamed
i was ripping out the pain
with lights so colorful
raindrops keep falling
i'll keep on crawling away

and then we drive back
to a time where we were naked
heaven collect me
and then resurrect me
and my apologizing
hollow eyes are shaking
sorry for whining
your colors are dying
may the spades fade to roses on your head
all in red
through the flame
our once-tethered souls will separate

love may be dangerous
but time seems to weigh less with you
kisses on the pavement
shifting conversations
with a you i wish i knew
i stay home, i forget
what it feels like to regret
the heart's so dutiful
those raindrops keep on falling
i'll keep on crawling away

trying to breathe
but hums and screams were following behind me
and if i make it to the quarry
i'm gonna wash me clean of you
Track Name: Calling Out
steady as she writes, i wake up
tell her that i like her make-up
never one to lightly sleep
a wave was crashing into me

curl our arms around each other
told myself i'd always love her
sorry that you have to leave
"i know, i'll see you in the eve"

oh, we had it
won't forget about it
i keep on calling out to you

remember all the times we stayed up?
waiting for the clock to break us
a quiz show no one's ever seen
turned in to part of our routine

made you mine in time for summer
took you to the drive-in, hearts fluttered
you told me that tonight could be
all i was ever meant to find
you know i've dreamt of you

oh, we had it
won't forget about it
i keep on calling out to you

i know we were meant to fall in love completely
i know i'll think of you when i think about love
