Darling

Softly
Lovely
Slowly you fade

Hold me
Darling
Sometime, once more

You’re glimmering

In an empty ocean hue

Divine, you tonight
Endless sea

Devour what’s left of me

Awaiting, arms open wide

Softly
Lovely
Slowly you fade

Hold me
Darling
Sometime, once more

Suddenly

With one glance I’m undone

No pain, no memories
You’re glimmering

You’re levitating me

No pain, no memories

Softly
Lovely
Slowly you fade

Hold me
Darling
Sometime, once more

News From The War

Time standstill
In a perfect afternoon
Deep in you, my dear
And since I’m floating here

In this perfect vacuum

Covered by my fears

News from the war
I heard nothing
I hope you’re safe
Have you lost a friend?

Have you lost your way?

I’m still here

Found myself
One lonely afternoon
You were standing there
Is this a dream or just

Some lovely point of view?

Still you’re standing there

News from the war
I heard nothing
I hope you’re safe
Have you lost a friend?

Have you lost your way?

I’m still here

Nothing Compares To You

Nothing compares to you

And I’ll be

Your empty room

A lovely blue

And I’m

In love with you

I still need you

A song I wrote for you when we were

falling in love

[no lyrics]

Benny Boy (a beautiful embrace)

Sometimes I get so lost

Thinking of you

And how it felt before the end

Just to be in your arms

It’s been a month and I still can’t sleep

Much anymore

I’ve given up on being me

Just let me sit and breathe

Please, please don’t leave

Please, come back to me

Medicate in every way

But I still feel pain

Benny Boy, when did you leave?

This isn’t me

Suicide (It felt nice)

Woke up in ER

I felt the breeze, but it left me

Somehow I’m still here

Please, please don’t leave

Please, come back to me

You can always kill yourself tomorrow

Fall asleep

It always leaves you empty

Strobe lights and paradise

Please don’t leave me paralyzed

And don’t forget

How you fell for me

So sleep alright

A quiet subversion, anyway

And I’ll be gone before you wake

Perfectly Out Of Place

Take me back

Where I was

Your only friend

Well, I was

Patiently waiting on

Your response

You’re perfectly out of place

You say, “If I can’t love myself

then how the hell can I try to love you?”

Did you forget how it first felt

Or did you feel nothing when I held on to you?

You’re perfectly out of place

(You’re perfectly out of place)

It made me want to hurt myself

But I would never do that to you

But I still thought it through

Sleep tonight and think this through

You are the only one that I care about

You’re perfectly out of place

And you’re so beautiful

I wish I could reach out and touch you

Soft skin

Your lips

I could die, I could die

And never cry again

Soft skin

Your lips

I could die, I could die

And never cry again

And I’ll just say it outright

I won’t try to be poetic or silly

I cut myself on the bathroom floor

With scissors, and I bled

I couldn’t reconcile the pain I had

So I made myself breathe a new way

And I tried to hide my scars

But when you saw the bloodstains

On my bedsheets

You said “What’s wrong”

And held me

And I felt loved

And I felt loved for the first time

In what seemed like forever

And as you grasped me tight 

I felt like I was in the arms of God

And there I wailed

And there I wailed

You’re perfectly out of place

it all feels the same

I can’t quite explain

How I’ve been feeling

Both of us know

I’ve been unfolding

Holding you near

I’ll sit in silence

Holding you here

Your beauty unveiling

Yea, it hurts
Or it all feels the same

I didn’t know
That I was so loved

You sought the good

While I was a monster

I felt alone
But you were with me

You opened my heart

So I could be free

Yea, it hurts
Or it all feels the same

Yea, it hurts
But I love you the same

I love you the same
(I love you the same)

Sinking deep

Comfort me

Mercies seep

It empties me

(It empties me)

The World Is Still Beautiful

I can’t get you off my mind  (my mind)

Yea, you keep me up all night  (all night)

You said that it’s too late now  (ok)


You’re so insecure these days  (these days) You tell your friends that you’re ok  (ok)

(some day)


I can’t seem to keep things straight  (oh no) You loved me now it’s time for change  (ok)

Makeout


Oh, I thought you had moved on too soon (UH)
Do you wanna readdress this mess
Can we do this when you’re not so drunk 

No, I won’t take it 

I won’t take

I can’t take this anymore


Are you gonna talk now

A smile let out
A smile disguised
That look I knew

Makeout makeup
And kiss me slow
And lose control
I’m lost in you


Why do you hate yourself so much?
Honestly I can’t stand all this talk
You break me up every time we touch 

No, I won’t take it 

I won’t take

I can’t take this anymore

Are you gonna talk now

A smile let out
A smile disguised
That look I knew

Makeout makeup
And kiss me slow
And lose control
I’m lost in you


Fall back down

Hit the ground

Stop Control 

Prideful fall
It’s you I love,

It’s you I love

Come too sweet 

Feel relief

Would You Care


Well, I could see you a mile away
You mind your thoughts

And me mine


I don’t care if I die

Would you care if I die?


I take so long to change
But you look so pretty always


I don’t care if I die

Would you care if I die?


What if I don’t care if I die

Do you really care if I die

Lately


Lately I’ve been lonely

And bet that you’ve been lonely too

Can I talk with you again?

I just wanna be your friend
I don’t think I have to be

Emotionally wrecked this way
If I just had you again 

I could get outside of my head


Come down sweetheart

Come back in

Thoughts still going through my head
We broke up and we made love
To strangers while we fell apart
But when I looked in her eyes
I didn’t see the one that I loved
I was just hanging out
Hoping that I’d find someone to confide in

Lately I’ve been lonely

And bet that you’ve been lonely too

Can I talk with you again?

I just wanna be your friend
I don’t think I have to be

Emotionally wrecked this way
If I just had you again 

I could get outside of my head


Slow down sweetheart

Take a breath
You went out and made a mess
You got drunk and I stayed sober
I don’t know how I stayed sober
But when I look in your eyes
I see the sunlight that I’ve been missing
I’m caught up in a glance
And now I’d like to tell you

How I’ve been feeling

Lately I’ve been lonely

And bet that you’ve been lonely too

Can I talk with you again?

I just wanna be your friend
I don’t think I have to be

Emotionally wrecked this way
If I just had you again 

I could get outside of my head

Warm Now


Didn’t mean to hurt you babe

Didn’t mean to hurt you babe  (oh)


Smell like cigarettes

Drinking cheap wine

It’s 2AM and I’m leaving soon
Talk to your friends too
Soon I’ll remember you


The parties’ over now
I’m feeling sober now  (oh)

I’m feeling lost right now
I can feel you crying out  (oh)

Smell like cigarettes

Drinking cheap wine

It’s 2AM and I’m leaving soon
Talk to your friends too
Soon I’ll remember you

Outro

Intro


Waves came rushing in
Enveloped me in love
Came floating in

Floating in into my heart


I remember you

You were trying to be loved
Tears down your face

I wish I was there with you then

Your world will change

Suddenly you’ll see the light

So take my hand

Walk with me until the end


Fall asleep 

Fall asleep into my arms

Into space

In the corners of my heart

22


Looking into your eyes
the deep deep blue

The deep deep blue

And I wish that I could fly
And cry with you

Cry with you


Standing here looking out

Into an endless dream of you

Holding hands until the night ends

Why was I so ashamed of looking at you?
Why was I so afraid to really love you?
I love your smile
Why can’t I just love that?


And now we’re going to fast
In the unknown

In the unknown

And I just want to have you
In my life

Not in my mind

Standing here looking out

Into an endless dream of you

Holding hands until the night ends

Why was I so ashamed of looking at you?
Why was I so afraid to really love you?
I love your smile
Why can’t I just love that?

Prescription


I saw you in between
Crushing pills and rolling nicotine Remember being young?

(Remember being young?)


I saw you in my dreams

But I don’t know why

Subconsciously unveiling
What it’s like to love

Like we were young

Holding your hand laughing
And all that time spent high

In a vacuous daze

Was vapor in the morning
I just want to live

Life young and free
But time will never be the same


Riding bikes down hill
Feel the wind now blowing in your face

Now all we are is moving on
Just getting by by ourselves

I saw you in between
Crushing pills and rolling nicotine Remember being young?

(Remember being young?)

I saw you in my dreams

But I don’t know why

Subconsciously unveiling
What it’s like to love

Like we were young

Holding your hand laughing
And all that time spent high

In a vacuous daze

Was vapor in the morning
I just want to live

Life young and free
But time will never be the same

Sleep Forever

I wrote a letter to you 

I took a train to meet you

I put myself into my time capsule

Nice to meet you

I thought that I had lost you

But all along you were right there

Went to the doctor’s office

Doc told me I was so hurt

Doc gave me lots of pills

Doc told me these will fix you

But all I needed was you

And losing you was all I knew

Tell me why should I keep holding on?

Getting lost and it's you I need

Tears stream down on the sink

And I don't remember my name

Tonight I'll finally meet you

This nights’ the last without you

I'll read my letter to you

I’'ll show you all my scars

Sleep now or sleep forever

I'll take my chances let me go

Transmit myself into your

Arms hold me

Hold me so tight

Get sober get off those pills

Find a new drug 'will do me

Get found down in the bathroom

So hold my hand

I'll see you now

Tell me why should I keep holding on?

Getting lost and it's you I need

Tears stream down on the sink

And I don't remember my name

Crucify

Sleep tonight

Crucify 'till morning you'll be loved tonight

Tell me why should I keep holding on?

Getting lost and it's you I need

Tears stream down on the sink

And I don't remember my name

Cocaine

Been floating inside my empty mind

For quite some time

'Cause it takes patience

To finally die

With you in mind

Take me home my dear

I'll hold you tonight

If this cocaine kills me

'Least I tried ringing through to you

I'll hold my phone

In case you call one last time

I dream of the day

When all of this goes away

Been numbing the pain of hurting you

Since you left me

And I'm in a box I can't see through

In an endless sea

I called you to say that I'm sorry

Before I die

Though I overdosed I still love you

You make me alive

Take me home my dear

I'll hold you tonight

If this cocaine kills me

'Least I tried ringing through to you

I'll hold my phone

In case you call one last time

I dream of the day

When all of this goes away

I dream if the day

When all of this goes away

Lost in the Dream

Look at me and watch me swim

In the sea of your thoughts

I think I like the way it's thin

I was so lost without you

But now I'm wondering

Are you lost too?

I was lost in the Dream

But now I'm living in the real life

Your face make-believe

Your crying in the daylight

Happiness in life whatever

I'm still floating but

I sometimes wish that I could cry

And when I look 

I see a mirror

Into your soul

And out the thin side wall

I was lost in the Dream

But now I'm living in the real life

Your face make-believe

Your crying in the daylight

Interlude (Dear Friend)

 

Dear Friend
It’s been a long time since I’ve seen you

Your deep cloud eyes

And long blonde hair
Don’t escape my memories
Nor does all the time

We spent Alone dreaming
We dreamt of days

We grew blackbird wings

And sailed away
But only got so far

Dear Friend I loved
Nights spent traipsing around

Quiet black fields
We built that tree fort against the hill

And hid it behind some leaves
Lest anyone found out about it
Sometimes it got cold

And I put my arm around you.

Dear Friend I loved you
And even when you’d show up

With bruises on your face

I still thought you were pretty
We gazed at stars and thought about flying

Into ocean waters
Or over the bridge to anywhere

Dear Friend I loved you

More than anyone else
And I wrote songs about you

On the piano in my living room
I never showed them to you

Because I couldn’t sing very well
Or because I couldn’t stand to see you cry
Thin wisps of time flew by

When I was going to tell you

But they died
I loved you 

And didn’t want to lose you
 

Dear Friend

You were more than a friend

My special friend

My only friend

But one day you were gone 
And that night

I went to your window and cried with you
And showed you the crushed, w
ithered Wildflowers I kept 

From our first blackbird dream

Dear Friend
I’m sorry

I never told you
That I love you
And I hope that
Someday I too
Will grow my blackbird wings

 

 

I Still Love You

Scars left on your face

You’re still beautiful

I couldn’t imagine

What breath could flow

Through parsed lips

And desert lungs

Sing Tonight a lullaby

Float away until you can't breathe

Hide away, hallucinate

Losing you or dying slowly

See you in rear view

Float by float away

I could see it in your eyes

The pain I caused

I could see it in my eyes

The friend I lost

Sing Tonight a lullaby

Float away until you can't breathe

Hide away, hallucinate

Losing you or dying slowly

I still love you

My best friend

My best friend

Fading from view

When I had you

I had you

...And I Know Nothing Will Come of It,

But I'll Keep Waiting

[no lyrics]

Nothing Ever Changes

Lay me down beside you now

Say that you love me

And if I'm gone before you wake

Please don’t miss me

And I'm gonna grow my wings and fly

Far away from here

Memories float between my eyes

Of times we spent laughing

Will you cry with me?

Will you lay me down

On your hurt side?

Will cry me to sleep?

Do you still love me?

Everlasting joy and pain

Falling through the lack of hurt

The heaviest weight of all

The weight of nothing

I'm dissolutioned cause I'm free

Yet heavy chains surround me

But trust me you'd want what I have

This feelings’ unchanging

Will you cry with me?

Will you lay me down

On your hurt side?

Will cry me to sleep?

Do you still love me?

La da da da da

Nothing ever changes

Do you still love me, well

I still think your pretty

Outro

You can take what you want

And if you're drunk 

I'll drive you home

And if you're high

You can cry on my shoulder

But please don't fall into too

You can take what you want  (I'll still be here)

And if you're drunk

I'll drive you home  (I’ll still be here)

And if you're high
You can cry on my shoulder  (I’ll still be here)

But please don't fall into too

Dreaming with You

Lucid Dreams


You wake up

In reality

Only when

It all just falls apart

All I wanna do

Is flee from reality

It's all just falling apart

If I don't escape from you

I might fall in love

From your lips I've learned

That with them I will die

I can't imagine

Just how hard it's been

But it just seems as if

It could never end

All I wanna do

Is flee from reality

It's all just falling apart

Only in your dreams

Do dreams come true

If I don't escape from you

I might fall in love

From your lips I've learned

That with them I will die

I can't imagine

Just how hard it's been

It just seems as if

It could never end

All I wanna do

Is flee from reality

It's all just falling apart

I Saw You

I saw you riding

On a rainbow last night

What are you doing there?

I saw you riding

On the back of a seahorse

Why are you standing there?

I saw you clasping

To those jellyfish wings

Why don't you come down from there?

I saw you climbing

Up a ladder with no rungs

Don't you know it's better down here?

If you come down here

I'll show you what it's like

To live the world

From my perspective

It's much easier to see this way

So take my grey glasses

And look through them

So please, please, please

Get your head out of the clouds

It's so hard to see

Your little mind at ease

It's so hard to see

Someone thinking differently

Don't you understand

That it's easier this way?

I saw you kissing

Little flowers on the hill

Flying through the universe

At the speed of light times two

I saw you playing

Hopscotch with your friends

But you were hopping

On the lily pads

Of a lava lake

I saw you drinking

A cup of ice cold tea

With three gulps

You swallowed the milky way

I saw you laying down

Right beside your bed

You were just sitting there

Eating your friend chuck

If you come down here

I'll show you what it's like

To live the world

From my perspective

It's much easier to see this way

So take my grey glasses

And look through them

So please, please, please

Get your head out of the clouds

It's so hard to see

Your little mind at ease

It's so hard to see

Someone thinking differently

Don't you understand

That it's easier this way?

I saw you scuba diving

In the river

You were talking to the sea urchins

Talking to the crabs

I saw you on

A rocket ship to space

This was not Apollo

It was 1492

I saw you talking to

Johann Sebastian Bach

You held secret

Illuminati meetings

I saw you going against

The flow of the world

Don't ever stop being you

Being you

Fly Away with You

I wanna fly away with you

We could go up with the sun

And the waves

Could come flying away

To you, they'll never be the same

I'm gonna get there with you

(I'm gonna get there with you

I'm gonna get there with you)

I wanna fly away with you

I'll fly away

With you

I wanna get to that place

Where there will be no trace

(I wanna get to that place

Where there will be no trace)

And time will never be in place

The clocks will always be in space

I want to fly away with you

(I want to fly away with you)

I'll fly away

With you

And we can fly

Upon the farthest stars

'Cause when were fast

Theres no space and time

And we can crawl upon the depths

'Cause baby I know

I'll fly away

With you

Dreams I've Had

The dreams I've had

For me and you

Have not gone past

Since I've seen you

It might seem strange

That I can't explain

Since years and years

Have been passed by

My love for you

Has not gone dry

The sky is blue

And I love you

The grass is green

And I'll stay true

The dreams I've had

For me and you

Have not gone past

Since I've seen you

It might seem strange

That I can't explain

It's been a while

Since I've seen you

I don't know why

I've never said this before

The sky is blue

And I love you

The grass is green

And I'll stay true

The dreams I've had

For me and you

Have not gone past

Since I've seen you

It might seem strange

That I can't explain

Baby I know

It's been a while

But I know my love

Will make you smile

The sky is blue

And I love you

The grass is green

And I'll stay true

The dreams I've had

For me and you

Have not gone past

Since I've seen you

It might seem strange

That I can't explain

Dreaming with You

Everyday I spend with you

I plainly see

How true love is meant to be

You look past all my insecurities

You see me as I am

Words cannot express

How much I love you

There's nothing 'bout you

That I'd ever change

Your perfect love for me

Is so unfailing

I can't believe that

Someone like you cares for me

Finally something

Has set me free

That nothing in this

World could do

And I know it's true

Only in my dreams

Has my wish come true

I'm dreaming with you

Words cannot express

How much I love you

There's nothing 'bout you

That I'd ever change

Your perfect love for me

Is so unfailing

I can't believe that

Someone like you cares for me

Benny Boy

Sometimes I get so lost

Thinking of you

And how it felt before the end

Just to be in your arms

It’s been a month and I still can’t sleep

Much anymore

I’ve given up on being me

Just let me sit and breathe

Please, please don’t leave

Please, come back to me

Medicate in every way

But I still feel pain

Benny Boy, when did you leave?

This isn’t me

Suicide (It felt nice)

Woke up in ER

I felt the breeze, but it left me

Somehow I’m still here

Please, please don’t leave

Please, come back to me

Nothing Anyway

Look at me 

See my human face

Did you cry?

Oh, you looked away


I will remember you

(I will remember you)


Empathize like you used to, oh
Saw Jesus’ face

Fuck I was so enthralled


I will remember you
(I will remember you)
I was just caught in you too

I will remember you


I was on the edge

I wouldn’t hesitate
My skin feels so cold
I’m nothing anyway 

I’m floating anyway
Oh shouldn’t I just fade?
Suffocate me now

I settled for the knife
Let it all run down
Touch my broken face

Say loves’ still beautiful

Well I would die for you

 

I will remember you
I was just caught in you too

A postmodern apology
I was just caught in you too
