Track Name: Belly
I am waiting for an open door.
I don’t want to stay so still, I don’t want to wait any more.
Circling the same old thoughts,
they’ve bought and sold my time.
Returning to the same old place
where I wait, wait for a sign.

I wish I could lick my wounds and
carry on with my days
but clarity is just so slow to be seen
and I remain just the same in the belly of the beast.

No I can’t hold my own hand much longer
when it just slips away.
And I can’t hear the words of others
when your lines are all they say

It seems a very sorry tale to tell
because I’m no longer there.
And I can’t trust anyone
because now I’m just too scared.

And I can’t open up a space
for anyone
because I stand on the end of the line
where you belong.

I wish I could lick my wounds and
carry on with my days.
But clarity is just so slow to be seen
and I remain just the same in the belly of the beast
Track Name: Sweet Bones
Thank you for fueling my art
Thank you for the wounded heart

So I’m tossing in your bones now
and churning them to dust
I’m tossing in your bones now
and swallowing my trust

Like those before, you’ll move along
Without a thought you’ll carry on

So I’m tossing in your bones now
and watching as they fade
I’m tossing in your bones now
as I turn to run away

In my mind I’ve heard you say
A million times, a million ways

I don’t care about your bones, girl
I only want your flesh,
I don’t care about your bones, girl
I don’t care if they’re a mess

And because I know all too well
the games you play and the lies you sell

I’ll be crushing your sweet bones now
while wishing they were whole
I’ll be kissing your sweet bones now
While aching in my soul


Oh,
Time and time and time again
I hold out my hand to grasp the same end
Faster and faster and faster I go
As I close my eyes and pretend that I don’t know
Now I’m taking back all I said
The ways I’ve held you and all it meant

Because I’m letting go of all of your bones now
and laughing as they fall
I’m forgetting your sweet bones now
Because I don’t need them at all
I’m letting go of all of your bones now
and laughing as they fall
I’m forgetting your sweet bones now
No, I don’t need them at all
Track Name: How
How?
How?
How

can you stand
to feel what I feel?
When you let in the fullness
and see this end is real?

How?
How?
How

do you go on now that
you’ve lost what you had found?
And take each day now,
as thought I was never around?

How?
How?

Don’t you, darling, still remember
in the water then?
As the New Year broke upon us
our souls spoke unsaid
words you’d later come to forget,
words you’ve taken back?
Tell me, darling, how you do it
and still look so sad.

How?
How?
(do you stand yourself
knowing the truth,
that the end of our love
belongs to you?)
How?
Track Name: Companion
Sleepless minds have always been a little free.
Its hard to find a companion with which to dream.
I know he’s out there, under some tree
harvesting knowledge to someday share with me.

Dancing hearts are always a little loose.
It is hard to spot my companion’s moves.
I know he’s out there, under some tree
gathering knowledge to someday share with me.

(La da da da, da da da…)
Dream, oh dream, dream, dream with me
Dream, oh dream, oh dream, dream with me.

Gentle skin is never in a rush.
Its hard to think without my companion’s touch.
Track Name: I'd Touch Myself
God convinced me I was safe to cry
Then he held me, held me at his side
And I could have tried a little harder
And I forget where I am

It's plain to see, I always climb back on
And truthfully, I don't know how to stop
And I could have tried a little harder
I forget where I am

I'd touch myself, begging for a chance
I'd touch my own love, looking for a path
I'd touch myself, hoping for some truth
I'd touch myself, searching for you

God convinced me I was safe to sleep
Then he left me stranded in a dream
I could have tried a little harder
I forget where I am
Track Name: Great Unknown
How do you know
which path to take?
Feeling so sure,
easy to fake.

And on the other side
my soul takes flight to the great unknown.

How do you choose
between safety and gold?
The promise of warmth,
the stale kiss of old?

And on the other side
my eyes are open wide to the great unknown.

On the other side,
living in my mind,
biding my time,
waiting for my life
from the great unknown

And on the other side
my heart always decides on the great unknown.
Track Name: Still Love
You offered up the sweetest dream
and thats where I lived until I’d seen
its breath was cold, its eyes were closed,
and it just goes to show, you never know.

I won’t give up now,
I’ll still show up some how.
My bones are aching and my heart is breaking
but I… I’ll still love.

I’ve been a fool to trust your eyes,
I should have known to just trust mine.
But what you saw seemed so damned true
and even now all I see is you.

I won’t give up now,
I’ll still show up some how.
My bones are aching and my heart is breaking
but I, I’ll still love.
Track Name: Fool's Gold
When I saw your eyes
I didn’t read their lies.
It was all a joke,
Made of fool’s gold.

And I was the fool
who abandon the rules.
Yes, I was the fool who believed it.
I believed.

When you wanted me still
and our love was real,
we lived in our wealth,
in a world for ourselves.

Our riches are sand
now you’ve run from our land
and I’m stuck with my hand full of fool’s gold,
full of fool’s gold.

How, how did you give without,
without being sure?
I, I could have lived without,
without asking what for.
Why, why did you give without,
without being sure?
I, I could have lived without,
because now I’m asking what for.

When I saw your eyes
I didn’t read their lies.
It was all a joke,
made of fool’s gold.
Track Name: Love is Here
You wandered in with open arms and wooed me with your inborn charms and I was swept away.
And in your eyes so crystal blue I saw myself and knew it was true, yes
I knew, I knew I’d stay.

Love, it is here.
Love, I know it’s real.

You took no time to learn my name and with it’s sound, I felt the change,
my life, forever us.
And in the deepest part of me, you’ve made your home and set me free.
There’s no choice because this is love.

Love, it is here.
Love, I know it’s real.

Why try? To spare my heart, to spare my soul, my eyes?
Its true its you.

In this life of magic truths, one for me is me for you and you,
you feel the same.
Track Name: Winter
You think it grows on trees
but it doesn’t.
You think you can pick as you please
but you can’t.

Because when you return it’ll be winter
and when you return the fruit will be dead
and when you return the ground will be frozen
and when you return you’ll see what you had.

If you think it will grow twice,
well you are wrong.
And if you recall all that was so nice,
I swear that you will feel the loss.

Because when you return it’ll be winter
and when you return the fruit will be dead
and when you return the ground will be frozen
and when you return you’ll see what you had.

One day you’ll think about the seeds and you’ll wish you’d stuck around to see
all that climbed up from the soil you so carefully spread
all around, all around, all around me.
One day you’ll think all about the seeds you laid down and you’ll wish you’d stuck around to see
all that climbed up from the soil you so carefully spread
all around, all around, all around me.
All around me, why can’t you see?

Because when you return it’ll be winter
and when you return the fruit will be dead
and when you return the ground will be frozen
and when you return you’ll see what we had.

You think it grows on trees
but it doesn’t.
You think you can pick as you please
but you can’t.
You think it grows on trees
but it doesn’t.
You think you can pick as you please
but you can’t.
Track Name: By The Ocean
In your bedroom by the ocean
I lifted up my covers for you.
In your bedroom by the ocean
I lifted up my covers for truth.

Still I find myself waiting, braced to see your form.
But these hopes are just so fleeting,
as I open the door they are gone away.

In your bedroom by the sea
we swam until and swam until we flew.
In your bedroom by the sea
we looked until and looked until we knew.

Still I find myself waiting, braced to see your form.
But these hopes are just so fleeting,
as I open the door they are gone away.

In your bedroom by the ocean
we let it go though how, I can’t tell.
And your bedroom by the ocean
is now just a memory as well.
Track Name: Beautiful Things
Try, it’s no good.
Why is the word.
My, my heart hurts.
It hurts, oh, it hurts.

I should have bet
on what was left.
The answers are hiding or don’t exist at all and I am finding someone oh so small
in here.

Dreams, piling up.
Hope is not enough.
Time never gave a fuck about us,
about us.

I should have bet
on what was left.
The answers are hiding or don’t exist at all and I am finding someone oh so small
in here.

Don’t you see I still believe in beautiful things, beautiful things.
Don’t you see I still believe in beautiful things, beautiful things.
Can’t you feel the sun so real, my soul is so warm, my soul is so warm.
Can’t you feel the sun so real, my soul is so warm, my soul is so warm.

Don’t you see I still believe in beautiful things, beautiful things.
Don’t you see I still believe in beautiful things, beautiful things.

Don’t you see I still believe in beautiful things, beautiful things.
Don’t you see I still believe in beautiful things, beautiful things.

Don’t you see I still believe in these beautiful dreams, these beautiful dreams.
