I can feel the static build Coming in like clouds Covering the moon I can feel the static build Coming in like clouds Gotta take a pill just to meet you in the city If it’s too heavy will you carry it with me? Beauty is a heart that you want to stay beating Ugly is the sun coming up for no reason Used to walk to the water and say It doesn’t matter if you take me away Used to look at my body and say It doesn’t matter if they treat you this way Gotta take a pill just to meet you in the city If it’s too heavy will you carry it with me? Beauty is a heart that you want to stay beating Ugly is the sun coming up for no reason
2.
You have to want to go Past the access roads With your flashlight drawn Run the darkness through Past the bullfrog choirs And cicada drones For the rest of my life Will I gnaw at this bone? That I am always alone Past your heavy door Swung open wide Sweet chimney smoke Must I walk on by? And will I know your face Every crease and slope For the rest of my life? Will I gnaw at this bone That I am always alone
3.
Actual joy what are you hiding behind? I rolled the windows down in the van Can I summon you up just by grasping enough At the wind blowing over my hand? Headphone splitter in the parking lot We got closer than we usually do I was hiding from me by putting you in the way And I can tell that you were hiding from you Like a flashlight on, following you I need you When there’s no moon to see to Look at my face We’re too old to run away And what direction to go anyway? I’d be following you and you’d be following me I would turn into you and you would turn into me Two empty things exchanging emptiness Just following light, no direction at all I’ve spent so much of my life with no passion at all Just want to get lost, point the flashlight and walk
4.
Living is hard, I realized I never really tried Caring for you So I don’t have to care for myself Living is hard When you don’t want me to So I just think of you I think of you Run around the school Telling everyone How I think of you I think of you I’m telling everyone And I like you Crooked glasses leaning Or when you clean them with your t-shirt Because that’s like seeing you completely But there is the one you love And there is the love you want And there is the want you love And you can’t hold them all So I just think of you I think of you Run around the school Telling everyone How I think of you I think of you I’m telling everyone

Whirlpool 02:18
When we talk it’s like a whirlpool By the time your words get to me They’re just silt making clouds in the creek And I just want to hear you speak Please The sky’s not blue it is everything else That it won’t bounce back, that it keeps for itself And the sky’s not blue it’s the only thing it can’t hold So it gives it to you I just want to know you But that’s hard Because I used to
6.
Family Still 05:39
I can’t even get lost When the woods are tall And the light is low And I always come back home Like a hermit crab crawling Past a shell she’s outgrown A little less in control A little duller each day Like a painting fading on the living room wall Where the light is low Where the kids moved away Where the parents are old Where the mortgage gets paid Just in time for the doctors to call Power isn’t taking It’s making you give in freely And I hope you don’t come home And think it’s enough to be near me Did you know that most people die Within a couple of miles Of the place they spend their whole lives? What can be said of desire When every longing instilled in my heart Was instilled in such a violent world? M dad listens to you when he’s driving around He says he likes the guitar sound You’re my family still Even though we don’t talk now And I probably look strong From the outside in with my curtains drawn Like I don’t need your love at all! I put my hand on your chest I hope it beats when I leave you Like a watch in the desk drawer You’re my family still Even though don’t talk now
7.
No Backpack 02:18
No backpack on You swing the front door open Your leather jacket on With the angled zipper I have a love for you The kind the burns too quickly The kind that fills the margins up But I don’t want to run with you I don’t want to run with you When there’s someone you’re devoted to You’re always living with a trap door under you I could pack my life into the Honda, Leave you upstairs, and drive by the moon But I don’t want to run from you I don’t want to run from you When there’s no one you’re afraid to lose, you lose
8.
Moon and Sea 05:30
Moon and sea conspiring to sand the earth away Earth upon its axis aims to spin me off one day How can I impart this in what little time I have: In our little time we must impart the things we can We can talk until the birds are waking Up with the sun, another day the earth has taken And learn about the things that only moonlight can draw out That set the page on fire when you try to write them down Don’t stop this breathing Don’t stop this breathing I can tell you’re drinking with the door closed Sunday Morning playing in your headphones Sometimes there’s no one around you who will call Sometimes I’m too angry to be kind to you at all Look at what we’ve made into a normal way to be If I cannot lift it I just cast it off of me But what we cannot carry only piles up at our feet Rise, water, and take me Rise, water, and take me
9.
Hold out your hand It’s only some darkness The way home’s the same Even when you can’t see it I didn’t mean it When I said I felt alone in the room with you I think I just needed to know that I could hurt you too You check the mail I push down the french press We go to sleep and dream different things The backseat, the night drive, the fog on the glass Your thumb moves in circles on the back of my hand By the seat belt buckles there is nothing wrong I wake up ashamed And though you’re still sleeping I say I need you around like I did before It was hard before It was hard Before it was hard before It was hard before it was hard before It was hard before it was hard Before it was hard it was hard Before It was hard How much can you lose and still be you? When I think of you I just lose And when I have nothing left to lose Will I lose that to?
10.
Anchor 02:06
I will wait for you forever Like a sunken boat-less anchor It’s a secret, you can’t see it I don’t care about the ocean I don’t want to be an astronaut I just want to fix what’s broken Do you want to pry this open? Do you want to fix what’s broken too? I hope I keep on knowing you You look into me like water When the gutter bounces up the light blue glow From neon open signs What’s scary isn’t darkness It’s the moment you switch on the light I hope I keep on knowing you
11.
There’s a moment in the morning Where I don’t yet know anything Just sunlight, eyes closed, orange glow Don’t go don’t go don’t go Don’t let me crash into My body What will grow in my wake? Like ferns spike up on graves Talking out of phase with you I can I can I? Can I can I? Can I Stop loving you You’re right, there’s just wind in my heart There used to be more So quiet, there’s just wind on the phone I should have ended the call But I don’t get wobbly for anyone So I’ll stay with you, stay with you, even when it’s scary to Take all these cannon drum, heaven trumpet feelings that I have for you Looking at you looking at me Feels like peeking at the ending I want to see the world without me Like Tom and Huck up in the roof beams But I don’t get wobbly for anyone So I’ll stay with you, stay with you, even when it’s scary to Take all these cannon drum, heaven trumpet feelings that I have for you

Walking with the moon Shouldn’t I love you? Although you make me mad Shouldn’t I love you? Highway overpass Shouldn’t I love you?
