Snitch 03:08
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

Marilyn 04:38
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

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

Ceiling Fan 03:42
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
5.
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

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
