LYRICS:

Intro

The darkness I wait for
is untouched by the cure
solemnly striding
i start to look around for you


Constellations // The Blessing

And if it’s any consolation
I just wanna go out under the stars with you
and make up constellations
is that really too much to ask?
got a pocket full of secrets and a half full flask
and a promise to my self, I know it’s not gonna last
I been working too hard for this shit
to not go perfect, listen, my wish list
is growing, i was gonna try to make it all happen
i was gonna put in the time
and I’m too caught up in your eyes
and if the world ended tonight
i’d just wanna go out under the stars with you
and if we just pretended tonight
that this is all there ever is, was, and will be
smoke it down you feel me
Up the fire escape to the top of the building
Have you ever seen a night this clear?
Gotta fight this fear that’s been hangin
I might this year
I been planning on taking you with me
and I’m too caught up in your eyes

the setting of the moonlight was inviting
I felt welcome in the rush of emotion that came in sight
and the effervescent crystal glasses tipping toward mystic paths
that lay of ahead of us
called my name
It’s a blessing i met you here
I can’t the stand the outside world


Make Believe

I saw you in the foreground of the photograph I thought I’d lost
Were you waiting there for me?
Clothed in white, bathed in glory
People these days seem to talk too much and drown out
The beauty around them, I hate it
When can I go
I close my eyes and remember the sound of the wind
the babbling brook
the wound at your chest, mended
could you hear my whisper
Oh, we’re growing old
don’t waste your time, but we’re gonna lose it anyway
I still feel the cool breeze sweeping over me
and I can’t quite describe the arising emotion
undying devotion
You’re still so cold
Maybe we can pretend for a little while that you don’t have to go,
that you never left, that I’m still holding you
Maybe we can pretend for a little while that I’ll never lose these memories
hold me in your heart forever
I’ll try my best
I’m still waiting for you
Pretending, pretending you’re with me baby
Make believe isn’t the same without you
Make believe isn’t the same without you
I will always wait for you
pretending, pretending you’re here with me babe
Make believe isn’t the same without you
Make believe isn’t the same without you


Locked Up

had you on some shit going crazy
I never promised you a good outcome baby
who the fuck you think you are?
got me trapped got me trapped
left hand on my back tongue tied in limbo
Look where we’re at
Maybe the end won’t be so bad
I could take you with me
Do you remember the we promise we made
or has the memory floated away
Our lips lock as the sun hits the window
i think i’m starting to like this limbo
I can always come back later baby
I got all the time in the world
we’re locked up, searching for solace
Im restless I need you babe


Up North

I’ll be waiting
where the grass grows green
close your eyes right there between
your breaths you can find me
even if you can’t
seem to see how things are going right
Close your eyes disguised behind the rising sun
You’ll hear my voice call
You can always go to sleep, babe
I’ll be right there
between the currents of the summer air
We’ll make the sun come up before the dawn
you can find me in your dreams, babe
just close your eyes
in the shades of blue below the summer skies
You laid out a map and traced a path with your finger
It all looked so familiar
walk the stairs between the pillars
i feel like i live in a state of deja vu
do you believe in silver age? I do


Purgatory

if i told you i could see the future
would you believe me?
Face down in the water, baptized
Child like wonder streaming out your blue eyes
way down in the meadow, baby
what a sight to see
who ever would have thought you and i
would rule the world
as I fall to the ground, ashes
cradle me like a child
face down in the water, baptized
cradle me like a child
Is it sad that I still expect to see your face
every time I wake up
My dreams deceive me
been losing my mind lately
Purgatory is a lonely place
such a lonely place
If i held you underwater, baby
Would you see then
All I’ve been feelin lately,
Would you reconcile or would you hate me?
Dawn will break, the wait will be over
How could all this be?
The universe hides its face
Meet me where we met for the first time


Kaleidoscopic World

Have you ever experienced perfection?
I thought it was a just myth until it hit me
Atop the waterfall in your reflection
As you go I hope you never forget me
Here you are
amidst my kaleidoscopic world
i feel atop the world
Arm in arm
Watching the beauty all unfurl
It all went by in a whirl
the esoteric call in my direction
leads me high where i’m alone, the view is pristine
Just in case you slip my recollection
Can you promise to never forget me


The Low Down // Truth Be Told

I’m not blaming you
or the sun beams setting
on your eyes
its a blessing in disguise
I made it here
Always caught up in my thoughts
As the sun is moving across the empty field
Did you bring me for a reason?
Am I supposed to see something more?
I’ve heard it all before, it’s perfect
i know
What’s the point of trying if it’s all downhill?
I am trying to go up but i stay down still
but the way you’re standing there
so picturesque in the moonlight, now
where did time go
I gotta get out of my head
it’s been way too long,
it’s been way too long
sick of being tied down

i never had the strength to tell you all I felt
I still wonder bout your reaction
i think of you and cross my fingers all is well
I still can’t believe all this happened
