WAVES

They told me don’t dive in too deep

The rocks are harder at the bottom of the sea

You’re just a small fish with a big story

You’ll get lost down there

 

I didn’t hear the lies they told

I threw myself into the cold

I found smaller fins a thousand fold

Was glorified and ensnared

 

I cried,

I’ll eat you for the hope of salvation

No defense is good enough

You’ll have to learn, this sea is tough

I’ll eat you for the hope of salvation

It’s not your plight, but never mind

The devil is a close friend of mine

 

I swam from shore to shore

Went on a tour of the ocean floor

On every bigger fish, I declared war

And won

 

I rode the lacy waves curling in

But craved the velvet touch of air again

As soon as I leapt out, I was condemned

I could swim but couldn’t run

 

He cried,

I’ll eat you for the hope of salvation

No defense is good enough

You’ll have to learn, this land is tough

I’ll eat you for the hope of salvation

It’s not your plight, but never mind

The devil is a close friend of mine

 

Sometimes, I’m not so good

But you don’t always have to be good at what you love

God isn’t that the truth

MR. BLUE EYES

Hey, Mr. Blue Eyes

Don’t go outside

I can’t stand to see you go

 

Hey, Mr. Blue Eyes

Don’t go outside

For it may be goodbye

 

We’ve got no arrow to follow

So we’ll follow the sunset

The stars and the moon

We’ve got no arrows to follow home

So we’ll follow the sunset

The stars and the moon

 

Hey, Mr. Blue Eyes

Don’t go outside

I can’t stand to see you go

 

Hey, Mr. Blue Eyes

Don’t go outside

For it may be goodbye

 
 
GOOD GOODBYE

Fall is hanging from a tree branch

Like the leaves that tumble down

The air is made of gold and spice

And babe, we’re rollin’ round in the dirt

 

But it’s okay ‘cause autumn sun has kissed my cheek

And if I could I’d catch the wind for you

 

Winter’s playing hide and seek

My cheeks are glowing amaranth pink

And babe, you’re beautiful when the snow shines

 

We’ll hide away in blankets twisted ‘round our feet

While pristine angels guard the door

 

It’s a good goodbye

When auburn skies become ivory nights

When these months are on repeat

We’re on repeat, you’re on my mind

It’s a good goodbye

 

Spring is skipping through the creek

On rocks we through from drier ground

Flowers tease my ankles

Babe, it’s raining hard but I don’t care

 

The lightning strikes and lights us up

A crackle says the sky is waking up

 

Summer’s almost over now

The night is cool, the moon is out

My toes stick to the soft green grass

Babe, this is our last night for a while


But it’s alright ‘cause seasons come and go

And I’ll be back when falling leaves turn into snow

My lovebird, please don’t fly away

 

It’s a good goodbye

When cloudy skies make room for earth shine

When these months are on repeat

We’re on repeat, you’re on my mind

It’s a good goodbye

SUN KISS

Let me be your secret stardust

Nightcap blondie

Midnight suits us well

My darling

 

Let me be your little sailor

Full moon flower

Starlight leads us well

My darling

 

Whisper, lover, don’t make a sound

I’m still dreamin’, don’t wanna be found

 

Seashore sweetheart, lead the way

I’m still dreamin’ of our perfect day

 

My legs grew out of the sand

You’ve got sun rays in your hands

 

Let’s take a walk and never look back

Unless we’re counting shoe steps in the sand

 

If I had you

Maybe this daydream could come true

If I had you

Even on a night without a moon

 

Champagne supernova in a motel room

I’m charmed and tryin’ to be cool

 

Ocean eyes, let me swim in you

You only exist when there is a moon

 

If sunsets could speak

This one would say to me

 

Go take a walk and never look back

Unless you’re counting shoe steps in the sand

 

If I had you

Maybe this daydream could come true

If I had you

Even on a night without a moon

 

Say I love you

So that this daydream could come true

And if I do too

Maybe this daydream could come true

 

Let me be your secret stardust

Nightcap blondie

Midnight suits us well

My darling

 
PHONECALL SONG

I’ve got a lot to look forward to

Like tellin’ you I told you so

I’ve got a lot to look forward to

You’ve got a lot to be shown

 

I’ve got a lot to think about

Why won’t you hang up the phone

I’ve got a lot to think about

Now I’m here thinkin’ alone

 

You want to do this your own way

Don’t give a damn what they say

 

I’ve got a lot of growin’ up to do

Now that you’re on your own

I’ve got a lot of growin’ up to do

Thought I was already grown

 

You want to do this your own way

Don’t give a damn what they say

You want to do this the hard way

Don’t give a damn if it’s a mistake

 

I’ve got a lot that I’d hate to do (x 8)

 

A lot of it I’ve already done

 
MAY AND OCTOBER

Her leaves, just sprung from the stem

Her petals, still buds growing in

She felt the wind pick her up

Floating, falling buttercup

 

His breeze smelled of pepper and old books

His trees held spider webs and hidden nooks

He felt a chill in his bones

Falling leaves on cobblestone

 

All he ever wanted was the innocence of spring

Everything she wished for was the wisdom found in memory

So the wind rose she and he

And landed flower bud by autumn leaf

And May fell in love with October

 

I’ve been falling for you

I’ve been sinking fast

I’ve been trying to hold on

For the fear of breaking bones when I land

 

I’ve been falling for you

I’ve been sinking fast

I’ve been trying to hold on

For the fear of breaking bones when I land

 

I’ve been calling for you

You’ve been screaming loud

Crying out

 

Oh, pick me up

Blow the clouds away

Hey pick me up

Bring the sunshine for forever

Oh, buttercup

These days are long and dreary

Oh, buttercup

I need you here with me

 

All he ever wanted was the innocence of spring

Everything she wished for was the wisdom found in memory

So the wind rose she and he

And landed flower bud by autumn leaf

And May fell in love...

 

All he ever wanted was the innocence of spring

Everything she wished for was the wisdom found in memory

So the wind rose she and he

And landed flower bud by autumn leaf

And May fell in love with October
