Track Name: Snitch
I feel like I’m running out of explaining breath
What do you need me to say to bring your heart to bay?
Everything I take for granted I keep with me
And put it in a jar beneath my pillow for when I can’t sleep

I know a good mixer down the road
When the argument’s chewed down to the bone
I know, I know I don’t know how to say it but I love you
I’m a riddle of a man I know
Let me show you how I feel real slow

I hear you calling me and I hold my breath
Now don’t go telling me that love don’t exist
I’ve got some secrets I need to get off of my chest
I didn’t mean it when I called you a snitch
Track Name: Marilyn
We went swimming in the water
And we went driving in our wet clothes
You had a towel wrapped around your waist
And I was dreaming how to let go

You brought me up so high
Then you taught me how to get down
We hit the water with a splash
And we went swimming form the waist down

Now baby I know that there are reasons you say love don’t exist
But baby you know all you’ve gotta do is turn around and give me a kiss

Call me closer Marilyn
Pluck my feathers one by one
I’ll be your friend Marilyn
But we were struck by a lover who went and married another
But I wanna say to you today

How many days have left us broken
Still we rejoice in things unspoken
I’ve got a lot of things on my mind
Let’s just relax into the ocean
Track Name: Strangers Alive
The weather’s getting colder
Can you feel me getting older, I can
Things may come between us
But that doesn’t mean that we’re dead

Let me in the water I’ll let you swim through me
I’ll show you who I think I am
Let me in the water I’ll rest you on my shoulders
Let you see what’s next

Home never told me to wait
Sometimes it hurts but sometimes it’s great

I was hiding underneath your mother’s kitchen table
You were running your hands in the sink
It was all upside down I apologize for it
Nothing could bring you back to me

Home never told me to wait
Sometime it hurts but sometimes it’s great

But I swear I can make it upstairs
I’ll hold my head up and I won’t have to think
You can follow me there
We’re all on the brink of it

I won’t know you in four years
I’ll be bitter in five
I won’t know you in four years
We’ll be strangers alive

You can find me in the walls and I’ll love you for it
I’ll be tangled in the wires of your room
You’ll throw up your arms and I’ll dare you to
Find somebody else like me
Track Name: Ceiling Fan
We sat in chairs, in ones upholstered by my mother
We sat in chairs in separate rooms
Under a ceiling fan that healed our dripping bodies
Our baby skin melts in different rooms

Meet me in the warm rain and I'll wrap you in a sheet
Sink into my feathers, melt into my skin
When the barometer's low and the air hangs suspended
Our siren song plays madly on
Track Name: Letting You Go
Though it never seems that far away
This harbor’s sinking lower everyday
Now if I only had the nerve to say will you stay?
Letting you go

I know a place where we can stay
They leave the curtains up and the beds are made
There’s a radio that we can play but I don’t know
Letting you go

I know by now that there’s a time to end
A time to quit and a time to mend
But where will you be when it’s all pretend, do you know?
Letting you go
Easy to do
Harder to say

Come back inside and spend the night
Just say you love me for the weekend
I know that we can make it right
I bet that we could find the weird things
But I’m letting you go

Let’s fuck the rest and run the night
Tell me that everything is blooming
I wanna paint your color courage
I knew it when I saw you bleeding
But I’m letting you go

And now you tell me it’s my fault
That I didn’t know how to bring you back to life
Track Name: City of Lights
Oh, City of Lights
I wake to you, curl up by your side
Run to you, wake to you
Run to you, wake to you

Oh, turbulent tides
The current flows strong at our lips
Toast to you, drink to you
Toast to you, drink to you

Would it be alright if I lived inside you?
It could snow too and I could wear that coat you loved

Au revoir, City of Lights
Farewell to all my disguises
Though I've found some comfort here

So long to bridges and gates
And the color you placed on my cheeks
I thought you one were mine

Would it be alright if I lived inside you?
It could snow too and I could wear that coat you loved

Oh, City of Lights
I wake to you, curl up by your side
Run to you, wake to you
Run to you, wake to you
Toast to you, drink to you
Toast to you, drink to you
