Track Name: Light Bends (Live Session)
Please don't touch me now
I'll find peace somehow
This is not our end
You forget that light bends

You lay me down
And the room is spinning
Faster than the record we put on
My eyes are filling with salt
Oh, this is no one's fault

Turn the lights down
Maybe in the dark, you won't seem so far
How much hope exists
When waiting for
A sleeping limb
To awaken

You come around
And ordinary people
Stop and take a seat
Just to watch our eyes meet
And how far the ground is from our feet

You talk of lovers
Like picking flowers from a tree
While you sit
And pick the parts you like off of me
I know you love
The scripted mystery
Living without borders
Doesn't mean you're living free

Turn the lights down
Maybe in the dark, you won't seem so far
How much hope exists
When waiting for
A sleeping limb
To awaken
To awaken...
Track Name: Blue (Live Session)
We met in an April shower
Oh, what a lovely hour it was
I learned your eyebrows first
And your hands next
Your heart was still an open mess

You love with no consequence
Taking none of the blame
And none of the offense

You ask me what I hide behind my teeth
Save for my sense of self and security
How much more
Do you want from me?
How long before
You will let me be?
How much more
Do you want from me?

Blue, you're made of
Fire and grace
And not sure how much more heat I can take
'Cause I'm running
On cold all the time
Before you I was running just fine
Blue, are you a romantic who's lost all his hope?
Waiting around
For it to prove its worth?

You ask me what I hide behind my teeth
Save for my sense of self and security
How much more
Do you want from me?
How long before
You will let me be?
How much more
Do you want from me?
Track Name: Water (Live Session)
I was still dancing at your feet
Trying to keep up with your beat
I was learning your streets
But I kept tripping over the shadow at my feet

When the water was up to my neck
Did you think I’d forget?
I can’t get out of this wet
Did you think I’d forget?
Every time you were surer than the rest
Did you think I’d
Did you think I’d
Did you think I’d forget?

We take on the shape of what ever contains us
You break down walls before I can really brace
You forget your lines are drawn in sand
And when you closed my legs you were still holding my hand

When the water was up to my neck
Did you think I’d forget?
I can’t get out of this wet
Did you think I’d forget?
Every time you were surer than the rest
Did you think I’d
Did you think I’d
Did you think I’d forget?
Track Name: Honey (Live Session)
I’ve got bells on my back
And silence on my heels
I’ve got stars in my head
I’m holding on to everything I can’t feel

I’ve got yellow on my mouth
I won’t whisper if you don’t shout
I’ve got black on my fingertips
I’m pulling at your edges until they rip

I’ve got honey on my throat
My words are sweet, but sometimes I choke
You have salt on your tongue
You think you’ve won

You have diamonds to your name
Bending rules in your own game
You have power in your hands
I keep trying to make you understand

I have secrets in my ear
Tell me quickly what you don’t fear
I’m a lioness in a frame
And I’m not ashamed

I’ve got honey on my throat
My words are sweet, but sometimes I choke
You have salt on your tongue
You think you’ve won

You think you’ve
You think you’ve
You think you’ve

I’ve got honey on my throat
My words are sweet, but sometimes I choke
You have salt on your tongue
You think you’ve won
