1.
Under Doors 01:57
Lips like pillows, eyes like stone You stand tall, want to be alone I slip in like wind under doors And I croon to you softly, to your core You fall down like a clover in arms And you sail straight ahead unaware you're torn
2.
A soft glare of red flame brings us close again An open palm gives way to smoke inside my head Despite the threat of coming pain I choose to raise the dead With you I walked backwards in time feeling no regret You know I can't go A heart in pieces is what I have to show Silver in hand scratches my eyes, I don't impose Whether I convince myself, you convince us both She's locked away like a day dream, she's foggy at most But tonight you're mine, saltwater sinks on forest floors You know I can't go A heart in pieces is what I have to show
3.
Eve 03:32
Stay for a while and I'll give back the love we once had lost All me, for you I can't get it out of my mind That it wasn't wasted time But still, I release my bind Stop it there, you know perfect was lost When Eve tasted all the wrong Please forgive, I can't get it out of my mind Stay for a while and I'll give back the love we once had lost All me, for you
4.
Scales 03:28
Deep unto deep you call From the waterfall I underestimate the love that rages in your eyes Always forgetful I push off and then I take flight Remove the scales I beg you please let me see the light I need clarity for I have embraced the night Remove the scales I beg you please restore my sight What can make the angels cry? Cause their wings to hide their eyes?
5.
Jaded Lens 00:30
I'm lit up inside pretending you are mine In the night time you hold me I feel like I'm the only One who can love you and be true Memories of twisted hands Cause you to see through a jaded lens
6.
Haze 03:14
He is my star, for him my eyes only drew Unbridle love within a dizzy hue I follow him like the lamb that Mary knew Lopsided white it lifts me out of blue So the first becomes the last As I see through a haze That's filled with only you Your touch, your smile And all the while, I'm waiting for the Wind to come, to see the sun We're headed east, into the deep I'm grasping now, at threads undone The least of these They end up the ones Rumblings come from mountain tops to valleys deep His voice provides me with a solid beat Time sways but our irises they keep the heat His shoulders convince me to take the leap So the first becomes the last As I see through a haze That's filled with only you Your touch, your smile And all the while, I'm waiting for the Wind to come, to see the sun We're headed east, into the deep I'm grasping now, at threads undone The least of these They end up the ones
7.
Satellite 04:51
Satellite orbiting me Circling so willing You are the sun And I am your moon You pluck my heartstrings Orchestrating a lovesick tune When hope is deferred and gone, still I'll feel the same My love is so strong, it will never wane Satellite you take me Passed things material, spiritual energy We belong together Like waves that pull at the sand For this I was made Created to love this man When hope is deferred and gone, still I'll feel the same My love is so strong, it will never wane
8.
I've been looking for love, all the wrong places All the wrong times, all the wrong faces Looking for a place where I could simply lay my head Unlock my knees, bury inside Something that the flesh can never compromise I am ruined for anything less than our experience Fleeting shadows have only hold in disguise Though I play vagabond, truth is I want you Written on palm of hand, your name, I've turned you Into a harbor from all of the ties Drinking from broken cisterns that never satisfy Beauty for ashes, joy for mourning, praise for heaviness Beauty for ashes, joy for mourning, praise for heaviness
