the blessed moons been making faces so she's lost count of her paces the branches crack beneath - her feet as if they were on fire the walk could be a lonely one if not for 'lele - and a drum which she reaches for now and then - leaving not much else to desire and all the spirits know her name she talks to rocks and creeks the same they see the darkness in her is just as deep as the light watch her move among the foxes reds and purples in her pockets and every bit of forest are her walls and dolls each night the moon's been making faces the parties lost her traces her breadcrumb path is gone SHE'S LEGEND NOW MOVE ON

Oranges are falling from the trees and there's no young boy to catch them and I've been sitting singing to the bees don't see them anymore but I'm sure if I - could float - away... and books are falling from my window pane splashing in the gutters from the rain cuz I'm the one who knocked them and there they go - two stories the words will all flow out - to filling drains and ride those secret riverss ss ss ss sss but if I - could float - away you wouldn't see me anymore at all and no more books would fall and I make sweater pillows as a lark for eyes that close to dream away the dark cuz I've been part of that club for some time now and when my coffee cup has all run out my balloons will start to kick about and back my lark will go to being just a pillow but if I could float away you wouldn't see me anymore at all and no more books would fall no more would fall no more books would fall

Believin' is hard when you know you're wrong, and you know she's gone but I can't tell what you wanna hear My jaw gets stuck and my mind gets slow when I'm mesmerized by the way your dress fits by the way your dress fits and to me I'm lying in a cave and I got to get out lying in a cave and I got to get out lying in a cave and I got to get out I wanna hold you don't wanna ask to I wanna hold and I need to see you and I wanna hold you I do I freeze up like a deer in an accident my palms speak in a language more eloquent a reproductive machine and I don't mean to be mean but your the prettiest thing in nature the body will sleep when the body is weak the body will sleep when the body is weak the body will sleep when the body is weak and I'm not asleep but I 've got no strength in me I'm a lion in a cage and I got to get out tryin' hard to find where to pull my head out head out! head out! head out! I wanna hold you don't wanna ask to I wanna hold and I need to see you and I wanna hold ya I do ooooohs x 1 million

you dirty man you dropped your clothes off feet in the sand you won't say nothin' at all you just stand tall you lost your voice (ssssss ah) or just my number but it's your choice (ssssssssss ah) some rising thunder has drowned every warm sound you might be around but I ain't no hound until you call - I'll be sitting on our wall but you said you said you can't stop me I'm already king and you can take my crown but that don't change a thing and I'll hurt you and you'll hurt me - fairs fair you just make sure that you call me when you're there you just stand tall time was wasted on our youth and I was held to my word I guess by now you know the truth so why'd you go believing her - oh nooooooo you just stand tall but you said you said you cant stop me I'm already king you can take my crown but that don't change a thing and I'll hurt you and you'll hurt me - what's fair oh you just make sure that you call me when you're there you just stand tall you cant stop me I'm already king you can take my crown but that don't change a thing and I'll kill you if you hurt me - fair's fair oh you just make sure that you call me when you're there

You made me just some mistake made me think I was a fake but there will never be and there will always be another day take off those glasses - I wanna see your face you left me in limbo thinkin' what do I know what do I know lazy smile that pointed me with nowhere to go and all in slow mo all in slow mo oh oh now I get dressed with the idea of something perfect chalked with fear but there will never be and there will always be another you yeah I take my chances but I don't lose walkin' out of your shadow holding onto all that I've known bare to the bone no more guessin' numbers from now from now on the tone I set is my own set is my own Mornings creep on me giving me days openin' in to much more - of a maze I know my answers but habits obscure which way to go and whether I'm sure I'm sure

Mary I promise to be good to you and each day I hope it's at least half as true I'm mining for diamonds in your basement floor the gravel sprays in my eyes but I want more But it's a long way home to your door and these days I sleep on the floor you want more for less he's tied to your chest but he'll slip through your fingers and I roam the forest with the wolves and bears and they tell me stories how they once ruled the air and me, I'm a sailor with an ax to grind my anchors are tethered to my windswept mind but its a long way home to your shore my compass is smashed on the floor you're drowning in anguish and I know CPR if you'll just let me near you Inside your lighthouse you are safe and warm Mary I promise to live through this storm But it's a long way home to your shore my compass is dead on the floor we want more for less you're tied to my chest will you slip through my fingers yayayayaya!

I had a dream and you were in it walked lotsa miles to come to you I was in love I was in love with you I had a dream and you were in it had lotsa good times in my mind I was in love I was in love with you and all day, and all night I waited for you maybe when we're both a bit older we can buy a house in the beach near the shore sometimes I dream we're both older but that's a dream just a dream with you with you and all day, and all night I waited for you...
