Textbook Holiday

Please sit still I am trying to map out your face
And the ways to your body and I feel just like a kid in school
So happy to be a fool in love with someone like you...
Someone as perfect as you.

The sky looks blue against your eyes.
The grass so green here on this side.
The clouds take shape of love in its full form.
With every single day I love you more and more.

Please don't think that I am trying to creep you out.
You're just all I think about and if you ever change your mind
I will be right here with open arms
My dear to make it crystal clear.

Please don't ever say its so
Please don't ever let me go
Please don't ever let me go

The Plea

He met her at a party on the dodgy side of town.
She offered him a cold one but his mouth was gagged and bound.
He listened to the song she played and watched her dance around.
She held him close and pondered my dear god what have I found.
Don't go. Don't go.

She wrote him every morning and he prayed she meant each word.
He felt to love and be loved sounded morbidly absurd.
She took him to the house where she learned to live and grow.
He met the ones that taught her and the ones she felt were foes.

He crawled into his mind then in her bed.
He kissed her on the mouth her legs came next...
And as she falls asleep he paces to and fro.
He looks up to the sky and cries please don't go.
Don't go.

Now everything's great but nothing is perfect.
She felt him in her lungs today.
He rolls another cigarette and wishes that he could stay.

She crawled into his mind.
Then in his bed.
She kissed him on the mouth his heart came next
And as they fall asleep she says I love you so.
She looks into his eyes and cries
Please don't go.

Snowflakes & Earthquakes

Just the other day I felt so out of place
The weight of the world left lines across my face yeah
I felt so powerless as if I could not change
Then I heard a voice say everything's ok yeah

So I took to my skin and realized I'm not that different
We walk the same streets passed different buildings
And if you feel alone just make sure that you know
You're beautiful and all your own, your own

Just the other day I felt so out of place
Events occurred that I could not erase yeah
I saw a stranger in the mirror the image wasn't quite clear
But I'm alive and I'm still standing here yeah

We're unique like snowflakes
We fall like them too
We're strong just like earthquakes
The damage we do

Just Faded Lines

I still had a lot to say the day you left the day you walked away.
We cried for hours and hours made morning showers your magic powers...
saved me from who I am or who I was way back when.

As our walls came crumbling down they did not make a single sound.
I asked if we're ok.
Yea I'm ok I'm just the same as when we first kissed, a lovers bliss...
But something missed.

But you can't leave me now.
I've got my heart on my sleeve
And I've got this hole in my chest
And I need you to believe that I can't breathe.

And as the sun came up I hoped that night had meant something much more.
Not just a notion or a nudge given by some lonely spores
and if you give it up we'll never see more
.
So u can't leave me now...

And you can live in all your darkness but soon you'll crave some light.
You can win the war inside yourself but not without a fight.
And I love you more than ever crying on our floor
I can carry on without you but with you life means more.

Yes I can carry on.......

Folding Maps

Did you ever think that it would happen, Fate, would bring us here?
Well I've been on a mental teeter totter the plausible possibilities fuel my fear.

Well I'm just fine with the distance
But if the world were flat...
Just once. Here. Now.
I'm blind to this, your drunken sorrow
Around we go. It stops when you say so...

Did you ever wonder what would happen If we left this place?
Well I knew the answer to the question Once I saw all the light leave your face.

All I wanted was a sign to give me some piece of mind.
All I needed was a way to work this out / to know that we would be ok.
And all I want is for us to go
It's just a place of retreat that we like to know

Helm & Anchor

So what if the world keeps spinning? So what if the sun don't set?
Oh I want you! Oh I want you!
So what if I keep on singing if you're not there to hear?
Oh say it's true! Oh say it's true!
I've given up on building walls to keep you out!

Alone, I'm left infected with anxious gloom
At peace I'm left perfected with my own impending doom
I've given up on all my fears just to keep you standing here

Cause' you opened up my eyes
Made me feel so alive
Without you by my side I can't think straight
You opened up my eyes
Made me feel so alive
Without you by my side I can't think straight

When I'm trapped inside a bubble
All I want to do is get out
And when I'm outside of that bubble
Getting in is all I ever think about
with every single moment

You've given me something to believe in other than myself.
I picked you up off the shelf...
I need you

Bird On A Wire

We watched from the bleachers as the grass caught fire
We were untouchable but aware
Like birds on a wire blissfully flying our way into oblivion
The children are chanting are you out or are you in?

It's much warmer where you are
I see the embers on the floor of your car
Burning for something maybe it's nothing
This place full of talkers mainly debating
If it's heaven in your eyes

We went from the fire to the ribbon row
So painful/aggressive
You'd never had wished it on anyone
But yourself, you know
So we never talked about it
The children are chanting all about it are you out or are you in?

Oh, take it back to everyone that I knew
Never knowing where were going
Just admit we live it up ...up ...up!

Indian Giver

Remember when I said you could take it all away
And I would be okay ?
Well when you did I felt a twitching where my heart used to be..
Now I want it back.
This arrow need some slack..
My shoes are stuck to your floor
Please let me loose I can't take it anymore!

Now I am useless... feeling quite anxious, sick of the habit.
I'm losing my mind when you're around.
Stupid!
My breath feels wasted... sad cause' I hate it.
I'm tired of being so damn confused.

Remember when you left all of your stupid cigarettes?
I felt my lungs collapse and when they did it was
Done for you and me I knew it then...
And now I cannot breathe!
You have ruined everything!
Give me back my oxygen!
I want you to lose cause' I need to win.

Now I am useless... feeling quite anxious, sick of the same shit.
I'm losing my mind when you're around.
Stupid!
My breath feels wasted... sad cause' I hate it.
I'm tired of being so damn confused.

You break my heart! Oh! No! No!

Melt The Snow


I swear we only speak when it's cold outside
I've got a lot of room for your peace of mind,
On a bridge by a tree where you used to hide
All alone, by yourself, nearly invisible.

But you chose me to hold you as you sleep and you...
Well, you know...
I lost your hand in that snow.

I know it's hard to speak about all those fears
Strong enough to hide all of your lonely tears
On a bridge by a tree where you used to hide
All alone, by yourself, nearly invisible...

But you chose me to hold you as you sleep and you...
Well, you know...
I lost your hand in that snow.

And you, trust me!
I'd still hold you as you sleep
But you pulled the trigger
To your loaded gun

Time moves so slow...
But you wouldn't know

Endeavour


I woke up in a cold sweat
With cold breath as I was talkin' to myself
Some in audible thread...
Felt like I was dead...
So I went right back to bed

And I put my helmet on
Then I climbed right up that rocket ship
Now I'm flying over the stars
And if you see me believe...
I'm not the same me
As I just came back from Mars

And as my eyes opened
Nothing was what it seemed
There were cars on the street
My chest had a beat
I was no longer asleep

So I put my T-shirt on and
Grabbed my keyboard wrote another song
Now we're talkin of what could be..
And if you see us believe that reality
Is much better than the dream

We started with our backs against the wall
Face forward, knocking each other down
All we had was time,
Sweet precious time.

Find your way back home.
