Witchcraft 04:28
My broken heart the world forgot I keep your picture with me, Betty I hold this grief I cannot speak The words are in my throat, oh I walked until Cathedral Hill Brought me down into the city And all that pain, it went away The day I saw your face It’s midnight on Main Street And this town’s all asleep But you’re still here with me And I know that Darling your loves like witchcraft (witchcraft) Oh, its witchcraft (witchcraft) Oh, its witchcraft (witchcraft) Yea, its witchcraft If I don’t have you by my side I’ll dream of you everynight If I don’t have you by my side I can’t live I wanna die It’s midnight on Main Street And this town’s all asleep But you’re still here with me And I know that It’s midnight on Main Street And this town’s all asleep But you’re still here with me And I know that Darling your loves like witchcraft (witchcraft) Oh, its witchcraft (witchcraft) Oh, its witchcraft (witchcraft) Yea, its witchcraft Oh my darling

Red Roses 02:42
It’s only me in the darkest dream where the river’s way too deep I can’t get across it It’s only me singing half asleep drifting slowly out to sea I can’t get around it Let the sun come undone get it out Let it overcome this doubt Let it be true Do you have any idea all the shit that I’ve been through Putting my world in your arms You were the moon and the sun For way too long If I can’t be saved Cover my grave with red roses If I die this way Cover my grave with red roses Just keep holding on to a day that is gone If all this will fade Cover my grave with red roses, babe It’s only me underneath these trees where the sun will never reach I can’t get over it It’s only me on these empty streets trying to find the room to breathe I can’t get outside it Let the time be kind let it in Let it finally start let it hurt Let it heal soon Do you have any idea all the shit that I’ve been through Putting my world in your arms You were the moon and the sun For way too long If I can’t be saved Cover my grave with red roses If I die this way Cover my grave with red roses Just keep holding on to a day that is gone You just keep holding on to a day that is gone You just keep holding on to a day that is gone You just keep holding on to a day that is gone

William 04:11
I see it Crawling up the walls, towards the ceiling Oh my love you never would believe it William, what is this feeling? I’m tired Laying in the forest by the water Underneath these ferns you’ll never find me William, why am I hiding? I kept it together in the house that you haunted I whispered your name but you never responded I feel it, your spirit is free William, she never loved me I waited Hoping something somehow could stay sacred Every little meaning keeps escaping William, what am I chasing? It’s ugly Why does every moment have to leave me? I try so hard to hold on to this memory William, I still feel empty It’s always a mystery to love and be loved I can bury these feelings they keep rising up Tell me, why is a lifetime not enough? William, what am I so afraid of? My heart, my heart stopped beating My lungs, my lungs stopped breathing My head, my head stopped thinking again My heart, my heart stopped beating My lungs, my lungs stopped breathing My head, my head stopped thinking again I kept it together and my heart it stopped beating I whispered your name and my lungs they stopped breathing I feel it, your spirit - my head stopped thinking again William, when is this gonna end?

Cassandra 03:37
The things you lost will not be found All the power lines hum in this river town There are bodies buried underground Cassandra sways in her wedding gown When I die will I come back as someone new? Maybe a brown-haired girl down the avenue This is all gonna end I dunno how soon Cassandra cries in an empty room I miss the moon I miss the moon I miss the moon Why don’t you? I woke up and the gleam in my eye was gone Take me back where I belong I woke up and the gleam in my eye was gone Take me back where I belong I woke up and the gleam in my eye was gone Take me back where I belong I woke up and the gleam in my eye was gone Take me back where I belong
5.
You finally found me My sorrow, my lonely one You wrapped around me In shadow, the sun is gone I’m an empty oyster in a sea of pearls Kid I’m a rollercoaster in an unknown, windblown world I’m a missing person way beyond the pines By now the town stopped searching All this endless time You finally found me My sorrow, my lonely one You wrapped around me In shadow, the sun is gone Be my huckleberry, when I have nothing left Put the past behind me and don’t look back baby don’t look back Be my great blue heron In a field of crows Cause Ricky I stopped caring where these highways go You finally found me My sorrow, my lonely one You wrapped around me In shadow, the sun is gone

It Hurts 04:13
Leave this I don’t wanna face it I don’t wanna think about the time I wasted Falling down a well kid Can you hear the future whispering? Die die honey I die every morning Living wants you back in the past Just to feel bad Try all that you got, you’re the boss I’m the lab rat One in every hundred wondering how to live Try to forget it It’s a lonely road To feel this lost at home But where do you go? Fall apart don’t break my heart I blame it on the endless dark I fought so hard to find the words It hurts, it hurts, it hurts, it hurts, it hurts Stay true how should I find you? I should I take off your mask and costume? Maybe make a plan to let everything fall through Searching through the dust the dust the dust the dust the dust Hang there slowly going insane Let it all unfold like a paper airplane What a disappointment, it turns out you’re just like everyone What should I have done? It’s a lonely road To feel this lost at home But where do you go? Fall apart don’t break my heart I blame it on the endless dark I fought so hard to find the words It hurts, it hurts, it hurts, it hurts, it hurts Letting go of yesterday The innocence I couldn’t save I tried so hard to find a way It hurts, it hurts, it hurts, it hurts Fall apart don’t break my heart I blame it on the endless dark I fought so hard to find the words It hurts, it hurts, it hurts, it hurts, it hurts Letting go of yesterday The innocence I couldn’t save I tried so hard to find a way It hurts, it hurts, it hurts, it hurts

Maureen 03:25
Isn’t anyone a saint? Is there such a thing called fate? In the dark I touched your face Oh Maureen Can you hear the crickets sing? Everyone at home’s asleep I can feel you here with me Oh Maureen Streetlights tonight are all flickering Isn’t anything enough? Has there ever been true love? Does the spirit hold you up? Oh Maureen Something’s wrong inside my brain My head is full of ghosts again I always felt so out of place You know I never could relate to the world I’m living in Trust, refreshing, beautify, more, healthy, fresher, perfect, rich, better, luxury, longer Famous, natural, pleasing, as easy as this Oh Maureen, Oh Maureen, Oh Maureen Oh Maureen, Oh Maureen, Oh Maureen

I don’t want a life with the lights around me I don’t want a life with the lights around me I don’t want a life with the lights around me I don’t want a life with the lights around me Why can’t I say goodbye? Tears in eyes look like diamonds Empty form and crooked sound You were a bird What are you now? Fill my open mouth with feathers Everyone I knows got a different heaven Glowing jack-o-lantern light Open up my skull Take out all the insides I don’t want a life with the lights around me I don’t want a life with the lights around me I don’t want a life with the lights around me I don’t want a life with the lights around me Why can’t I just move on? Stuck in place by the weight of a sad song Concrete legs, iron arms Its all too soon, it took so long Let the tears become an ocean Say your name into every empty room Seashells woven in your hair Fill up my lungs with summer air I don’t want a life with the lights around me I don’t want a life with the lights around me I don’t want a life with the lights around me I don’t want a life with the lights around me I don’t want a life with the lights around me I don’t want a life with the lights around me I don’t want a life with the lights around me I don’t want a life with the lights around me Why can’t I feel a thing? I live life from under glass again Saturday was gone too soon The world kept crawling towards the moon Minneapolis slept through sirens Blackbirds in the dead eyed pre-dawn light Waiting for the ice to fade Hold tight, live life hindsight Don’t change

Birdie 02:58
Don’t tell lies, take advice It’s way too late at night I take drink after drink I start sinking Compromise, you can let the blackbirds have my eyes It was never enough I never really felt your touch Live in pairs, hold my hand down skinny attic stairs Don’t be scared, stay lightheaded in the mountain air Hold my breath as I stare into the TV set I’m empty yet somehow filled with regret Because the life you deserve is with the trash out on the curb Birdie Loosen up, tell me how was work today my love My light, my light, my light stopped working Am I blind or have I seen beyond you all this time You take this home Make it into a catacomb You start to sigh, is this real life? Because it’s been disputed Everything’s fake my minds a lake these poison thoughts polluted Nothing is real, its all what you believe Am I a stranger to you? Cause you’re a stranger to me You fell from the tree, and now the gardens full of weeds Birdie My light, my light, my light stopped working My light, my light, my light stopped working My light, my light, my light stopped working My light, my light, my light stopped working

Deathproof 03:44
Multiply you and I Leave me this lonely life Never fail nightingale Everything’s bound to die Well my life’s gotten heavy I dunno what to do Your body is gone but my true love is deathproof Break my heart, crack my skull Maybe tear out my eyes Please don’t cry dragonfly Everything’s bound to die Well my life’s gotten heavy I dunno what to do Your body is gone but my true love is deathproof You’re nowhere to be found But you follow me around Well my life’s gotten heavy I dunno what to do Your body is gone but my true love is deathproof Deathproof Never fail nightingale, let it die Please don’t cry dragonfly, I’m alright

Dreamland 02:52
I’ve been having visions staring at the ceiling Wearing white jeans with my nostrils bleeding Love, love, love I’ll never be myself again I keep chasing you but I can’t get closer My insides full of cherry soda Love, love, love I’m living in a dreamland Darling, I won’t be afraid of nothin’ It’s only blood I prayed all day I dunno what for I die each night but I always get reborn I’ll never be myself again You’re a single pearl in an empty sea It’s a broken world but you belong here with me I’m living in a dreamland Darling, I won’t be afraid of nothin’ It’s only love Let the tide recede, it’s all a fantasy that you don’t have to believe Set the tigers free, isn’t life bittersweet? This world is all a dream

(Instrumental)
13.
There are weeks in January when the sun forgets to rise And the grey inside my head matches the grey up in the sky What was full somehow is empty now You see it in my eyes I’m miles and miles away I could keep your love just like a plastic rose It could never die But it could never grow There are days I walk into the woods, with snow up to my knees And although my hands are cold as ice, it’s my thoughts I hope to freeze I keep replaying every second, everything you said to me And I feel miles and miles away I tired to hide my love with invisible ink It was always there You just couldn’t see There are hours I spend driving, to the border of this state And wonder now why I felt then, such a steady pull to stay Life is not something to be waited for it’s something to be chased By now it’s miles and miles away Love and fear are two wolves fighting over me And the one that wins Is the one I feed.
