Track Name: Release
wish i could give you the clothes to try on
but i don't think they'll fit quite right,
i don't think they'll fit quite right,
i've been waiting for you all day to come over and see me
i'll send another invite
send another invite
i can't
because you are like a dream to me
i'm awake while you still sleep
won't you come back, come back to me
please
i need you here, i need to breathe
release
wish i could give you the clothes to try on
but i don't think they'll fit quite right,
i don't think they'll fit quite right,

Track Name: 65
you know you have a way with your hands
when you're holding,
shifting,
turning me around
i can't say it, but,
it's the feeling that keeps on
keeping on keeping me around


one day you'll be 80 and i'll be 65
i haven't a doubt in my mind
that i'll always remember your eyes
one day you'll be 80 and i'll be 65
i haven't a doubt in my mind
that i'll always remember your eyes
Track Name: We've Been Here Before
a thousand glittering skies
couldn't calm my night frights
if i kept on all of my clothes
could i still stay the night

and i pity the fall,
i fear nothing at all
you already told me
you'd never love me
and i broke the mirror last night
i dug the shards into my eyes
make me something pretty
so unlike me

i know where this is going,
the sweat on your forehead
i know where this is going,
fists all red and your eyes sizzling
i know where this is going


and i pity the fall,
i fear nothing at all
you already told me
you'd never love me
and i broke the mirror last night
i dug the shards into my eyes
make me something pretty
so unlike me
Track Name: Holy Holding
walking upon steady beats
your heart pumping the wells behind my eyes
and my face isn't waterproof
you don't mind, you kiss me every time
the sky was grey
and the rain lavender, i sway
o'er the fields you walk me through
could it be you
could it be you
could it be you

but love can't come so easy
you can take your time to learn me
i will trace the lines between your teeth
you can make me feel less empty

but love can't come so easy
you can take your time to learn me
i will trace the lines between your teeth
you can make me feel less empty
come and take me in my daydreams
feel my body writhing
shifting turning holy holding
if you'd like, maybe some time
some time
some time
Track Name: Blue
cover me in blue
i need more nights spent inside of you
and i've never clung to anyone like that before

and i don't have my words,
but when i do,
i'll be sure to thank you
and i don't have my words,
but when i do,
i'll say i love you too,
i'm sorry, i love you too

and i can feel my heart breaking
i can feel my soul shaking
and i've never clung to anyone like that before

and i don't have my words,
but when i do,
i'll be sure to thank you
and i don't have my words,
but when i do,
i'll say i love you too,
i'm sorry, i love you too

and you still loved me when my
hair was wet and when my
face was bare and when my
clothes were off
and you still loved me when my
hair was wet and when my
face was bare and when my
clothes were off

and i don't have my words,
but when i do,
i'll be sure to thank you
and i don't have my words,
but when i do,
i'll say i love you too,
i'm sorry, i love you too
Track Name: I Let You Have The Good Pillow
i'm sorry for the bags under my eyes,
i was awake all night trying to synchronize my breath to yours.
and in a way, it was still resting.

the sun rose and birds started to sing,
i watched the window turn
from the midnight to the morning grey.

practice is a heavy song -
its heartbeats and steady symphony
have a way of swaying and encompassing you.

i let you have the good pillow.

i wonder how you laid when your body began to change,
where your chest was too sore to sleep on your stomach,
your valleys and mountains and great plains spanning further,
the bed becoming smaller,
the weather getting stronger,
but it's not a crisis, it's mother earth.

we shift at the same time,
i follow the softest lines
my legs cross and i rub my feet together.
my fingers trace the waves in the air,
inhale gently - barely there -
exhale like a tide to drift away.

now an incandescent glow kisses the flesh above the blanket.
it's warmer now,
you turn over.

i let you have the good pillow.
Track Name: Wicked Reveries
you told me about living in a dream
i caught something in your wicked reveries
i drank the water as we swam upstream
i pull my lips together and i think about your teeth

the sun rose between my thighs
i felt the warmth behind your eyes
your heart is there all on your sleeve
i'm there pulling at the stitching

so can i call you my baby tonight
only if for a night
i can't see my body right
i can't see another night

you told me about living in a dream
i caught something in your wicked reveries
