Try to tell you how I'm feelin' I really thought we had a spark Then you treat me like a villain while you're creepin' in the dark Maybe you're the criminal Bye bye, baby I really hate to see you go But the way you treated me last night had me lyin' on the floor Bye bye, baby You know I thought you were the one And when you shot me down, felt like you dropped me with a gun Feelings change just like the weather And when it rains, it really pours The more we try to hold on tighter, the more we start to feel ignored I think that I'll be on my way Bye bye, baby I really hate to see you go But the way you treated me last night had me lyin' on the floor Bye bye, baby You know I thought you were the one And when you shot me down, felt like you dropped me with a gun Yeah with a gun Bye bye, baby I really hate to see you go But the way you treated me last night had me lyin' on the floor Bye bye, baby You know I thought you were the one And when you shot me down, felt like you dropped me with a gun

To fall in love it does take time To fall in love it does take trying We’re on the road yah we’re getting by But I can’t help and feel this life passing my eyes And I don’t want to wake up at the finish line In the shadows we hide the feelings that we really can’t find And I don’t want to spend my life wondering ‘Why?’ We hit the floor naked all alone And I, for one, I could handle it On and on and on and on and on So get it right now Get it right now Pick up the pieces and relax your mind Pick up the pieces and create your life We hit the floor naked all alone And I, for one, I could handle it On and on and on and on and on So get it right now Get it right now To find your love it does take time To fall in love it does take trying If we believe we’re set for life If we succeed we’ve found our light So get it right now Get it right now Get it right now Get it right now To find your love it does take time To fall in love it does take trying If we believe we’re set for life If we succeed we’ve found our light But I cannot make you fly

All is well, all is well, all is well Daylight, caresses us into waking life Tangled till we get lost in the morning light, our dreams continue The quick of you is warm honey All is Well, All is well, All is Well Your presence puts me at ease All is Well, All is well, All is Well Your presence as I swim in sleep and settle in blissed in this motion some distance from dawning I guess I dreamt I sunk in front of you pulled through to morning then woke to your warming You cleanse me with you weightless movements You blind me with your serene beauty The quick of you is warm honey All is Well, All is well, All is Well Your presence puts me at ease as I swim in sleep and settle in blissed in this motion some distance from dawning I guess I dreamt I sunk in front of you pulled through to morning then woke to your warming this part our space mapping out across my face love that I can almost hold reaches further in to mold this quick memory changes what’s in front of me looks as though it’s… looks as though it’s… this map custom made every time we find our place this in sleep this on ground shifts in ways we understand this path this pace drawing light across my face looks as though it’s… love just how it’s… All is Well, All is well, All is Well

I glued my eyes shut For one year of silence But I don't know what I'm worth With my head under water. Oh! At first I asked, There's no difference Oh Jesus Christ, Save me instead. Now my skeleton shivers Bent over backward If I make a mistake If I let my hair down. Oh my God, At first I asked There's no difference Oh Jesus Christ Save me instead Ill eat your bread Body and blood All true in spite Save me instead Save me instead Save me instead

Forget everything I told you Forgive all the lies This is it, I’m doing what I’m supposed to do Coming to you should come as no surprise What I did wasn’t really what I set out to do What it did, didn’t play out how I planned it I was a kid going hard Running hot on forgotten fumes I’m still a bitch, the problem is that wasn’t for you You forgive, I forget You come in, love sick, let’s do it again Let’s forget Let’s forget Come into your window Let me tell you something bout yourself Come into your window Let me tell you something about yourself About you. What I did wasn’t really what I set out to do What it did didn’t play out how I planned it I was a kid going hard Running hot on forbidden fumes I’m still a bitch, the problem is that wasn’t for you That wasn’t for you You forgive, I forget You come in, love sick, let’s do it again Let’s forget Let’s forget Come into your window Let me tell you something bout yourself Come into your window Let me tell you something about yourself About you. Lay me down gently Tell me I’m your pet I’m so glad you get me I’m so glad I get any of it

You've been under my carpet all this time I'm so happy to find you Come with me carpet ride into the silver sky die next to me I hear sweet melodies icicles breaking apart walk with me into the light I'm made of triangles sharper than right angles city lights silver and white it's never night hard as a pillow sick as two sickos break me a window Feed me a shark I'll bite its heart I'll bite it hard hard You've been under my carpet all this time I'm so happy to find you Come with me carpet ride into the silver sky die next to me I hear violins imaginary friend where have you been? Roll the dice asking for snake eyes crack in the ice lightning is nice silver and white silver and white it's never night hard as a pillow sick as two sickos break me a window Feed me a shark I'll bite its heart I'll bite it hard hard silver and white it's never night hard as a pillow sick as two sickos break me a window Feed me a shark I'll bite its heart I'll bite it hard hard silver and white silver and white silver and white

It's bad for me. But I need your help to figure out why. I won't make a scene. If you just take the time to figure out why. While you were in LA I found the devil at your place. When I put your lipstick on I saw it on my face. Remember Annabelle, that used to live with you? She got home from work one day and I was in her shoes and they said: We're at the door Mrs. John its the Law, Everybody's saying that its all your fault. So I want to be a woman, so what? You don't want to be here, tough luck. I'm lovely, I'm lovely, I'm lovely yah, I'm going out for cigarettes all dressed in my drag. I'm hungry, I'm hungry, for something new, Even if it means giving up on you. Its bad for me. But I need your help to figure out why. I won't make a scene. If you just take the time to figure out why. You were in LA and the Devil's from LA, Everyone I've ever known they all come from LA. I got pretty loaded in the backyard of your place, So when I woke and looked up I had someone else's face and they said: We're at the door Mrs. John its the Law, Everybody's saying that its all your fault. So I want to be a woman, so what? You don't want to be here, tough luck. (2x) I'm lovely, I'm lovely, I'm lovely too, everything I do is just to be like you.

I'm just waiting on the end I'm at the end of my wits waiting for the apple to drop / I'm gonna figure this out crack the code and kill the messenger before the sun comes up / Its so close its so far away / Its so close its so far away / I'm deciphering dreams I pull apart the images and paste them on my bedroom floor / So when I'm sleeping on the ceiling trying to get some sleep I can see and be reminded not to dream bad dreams anymore / Its so close its so far away / Its so close its so far away / Its so close its so far away / Theres a darkness in me theres a darkness in you / Theres a darkness in one theres a darkness in two / Theres a darkness in many theres a darkness in few / Tell me where does it lead to / Its so close its so far away /

I like being quiet, staying home at night, cooking something good with vegetables I like making love, sleeping outside Tranquil rainy mornings in the fall I like a good hike in the mountains and big trees and aliens and abstract art and oddities Swimming in an ocean, lake, a river or a stream reflecting on the nature of reality Lying on the floor doing nothing special not caught up in fear or longing to be elsewhere uncomplicated sometimes just doesn't happen I like playing this guitar, playing with my band I like Adley, Tyler, and Dan I like Kaitlin and my mom and dad Ava and Sophia and some other people too but I can't say everybody (sorry if I didn't say you) I like the change of seasons as the days grow long a stunning sunset poetry by Ryokan I like to improvise as much as writing songs I try to keep some fascination going on Lying on the floor, doing nothing special not caught up in fear or longing to be elsewhere uncomplicated and other things that must end Much of this is easily obtainable in my convenient modern life plenty to eat and all kinds of pleasures hey, I'm grateful for my life guess I'm lucky or something I do what I want all the time still, there's no promise of satisfaction

The sun it rises Paint a rose to please me jewel covered king The sun it rises Notes never repeating wind up birds sing The sun it rises A day at every door and garments green Sunshine sunshine sunshine (repeat over and over and over)
