Oh, Love 02:18
Oh, love wanes as we get older. The shift of space Into your arms. Should we say this now? Could we wait somehow? Sink your teeth into the autumn. Weighed back down and covered with snow. Should we say this now? Could we wait somehow? You open yourself to me now, and tethered us both into doubt.

Fear 03:58
We were tied through fear in the hope we’d grow. Your retreat from home could end where we slept beneath the side of my bed in an empty house I shared with my friends. When the hope fades south and the steps caved in. When the embers hold below and remind me of you coming home to wash all the smoke from your clothes. But I don’t mean to say that all my love had turned away. But I just need you for the weekend or a while. Are you right with god? Was he on your side? As the days shrink back again turn to quiet, sink into dread, shading all the thoughts in my head. So, I speak with death. Will he work with time? To the days longer in light. He picks her from the back of my mind. blots her out and changes my sight and with the sense from you that all my love had turned away. And I believed that for these weeks and for a while. I don’t mean to prepare for this. I could never say why. I don’t need this now. But I just need you for the weekend or a while.

The Lake 03:53
Wend your way through me, with a call from my father and the fear you leave. Set me wandering, in the blush of the morning with a weight to keep. Some thought of longing, waiting for the sun. You can keep and shelter. If I could have known, would I bend? To get you back from the side of my head, and I never thought to wonder if I'd thank god for all of this fiction, thank god you said whatever's on your mind. Were you more to me than the lake, and the harbor, and the tallest trees? The thought we wouldn’t speak, spools on the table and slips beneath. Some thought of longing, waiting for the sun. You can keep and shelter. If I could have known, Would I bend? To get you back from the side of my head, and I never thought to wonder if I'd thank god that this is my fiction, and thank god you said whatever's on your mind. Thank god you said whatever’s on your mind. The Lake bowed down.

Say you meant as much to me, as all this it slips right through my hands. I watch you turn away, now I spent all my time wondering if I should just wait. I’ve been up to my head now. I may never forget you. And if I walk away at least we’ve ways to go and oh I, oh I needed to let you find your own way to get to shut it all away, away, away. We know that oh, I think I’m ready, oh, I think I’m ready to break. But in my heart at least you stop to tell me I’m the only one. Oh, I think I’m ready, oh, I think we’re ready to break. Cause in my heart at least you stop and tell me I’m the one who knows you. Build me up, we’ll take the time to let go and break it off for good. In ways it’s been much better now that we both know that we are finally understood. I’d been up to my head now. I may never forget you. If I had walked away at least we’ve ways to go and oh I, oh I needed to let you find your own way to get to lock it all away, away, away. You know that oh, I think I’m ready, oh, I think I’m ready to break. Cause in my heart at least you stop to tell me I’m the only one. Oh, I think I’m ready, oh, I think we’re ready to break. Cause in my heart at least you stop and tell me I’m the one who knows you. I’m not scared to waste my time. You say that it’s over. Say that we’re closer. I’m not scared to waste my time. Say that it’s closer. Say that it’s over. If I had more time to just waste on you. Traded all my time just to waste on you. If I had more time to just waste on you. Oh, I think I’m ready, oh I think we’re ready to break. Cause in my heart at least you stop to tell me I’m the only one. Oh, I think I’m ready, oh, I think we’re ready to break. Cause in my heart at least you stop. Now tell me I’m the one who knows you.

I sink back below as the water surrounds. You’d known all this trouble could bring me down. Find something sweet to say and keep it to yourself. Let it get out. Keeping it down. I’ll sink back below til you change me enough. Fade out, lose our sight as it changes to dusk With every single word that says we’ve come undone. Not making a sound, don’t let me leave now. You look as if it’s something I should know. The undertow we built into a home. I never want to know if I even love you now. You left it here, thinking it’d be saved somehow. I sink back below as the current surrounds. See me, and feel that all of our actions were bound I can’t remember which way that it went wrong. Some memory drowned. I can’t make it out. You look as if it’s something I had known. The undertow we built into a home. I never want to know if I even love you now. You left it here, thinking it’d be saved somehow No, do I even love you now? And I don’t see that I’ll ever figure out. We’re turning into something and you have held the line. Will you turn me into someone who takes it all in stride? I gotta know. I’ve gotta tell you. If I could ever, if I could tell you. Oh, no if I even love you now. You left it here, Thinking it’d be saved somehow.

Winter 04:32
Say that it’s over, if that’s what we need to say. In our one bed apartment the street passes through the shade where we gave it up. I watched from the hallway on some afternoon the ghost of us packing up our living room. you spoke to me softly, said something we knew. The light changed its hue, it’s leaving us soon. Another sort of lantern for you. One that only measures to you. Put your head on my shoulder, and dance by the kitchen sink, where I may not have told you in the blue of the tv screen that you gave me love. Is this what you needed to know it was true? Some kind of reminder of something we knew the light changed its hue, it’s leaving us soon. Another sort of lantern for you. The kind that really measures to you.

Snow Day 03:38
Drawn from Orion, we bend while picking you up through the last days of autumn. Climbing the steps to your bed, the drifts building upwards like cards on a table towards home. Oh, winter takes me four hours away. Pick through the pines Where we met my grandfather. He told me you looked quite the same. Your coat filled with burs, and we grinned at the thought of it. Saying we know you’ll be safe. The sun howling down on your path to the bottom towards home. Time won’t change that you never looked away, if you pass so unexpectedly. And when we travel where you go through several weeks of snow to see. Backwards inside the lines, and you sit by my side as I read. The forest where we had just to leave you now. Oh, summer brings us back from far away. Soaked to the bone, overlooking the garden. And though all words may have changed, you’re picking me up by the turn of the autumn.

We met just once, but I really knew. And this heartache that you barely may remember still pulls me through. And if time spanned back again, would you know and try to change my tune? Could we take it back? But you moved out west or some thing like that. Where seasons barely had a sense of meaning and the coast slips back. And swallows up the end as we know and try when you asked again. Will you take it back? And you always were type. And I said it first if you remember. Under the weather Where I found a sip of you Just for a moment, And you’ll always be my type.

Ghosts 04:55
Find a way back home. Where the shade has gathered ever since we left here, and the trees have overgrown. I forgot you in a way. Since then the weeds drew up and covered up the doorstep, and the floors have given way. I still pray for rain, In my sleep a place we meant to keep I’ll lay my head beneath somewhere the ghosts still meet. And if I woke too soon, to see them fade from view into the afternoon somewhere I thought I knew. You’ll weather when I’m gone. Dead of night, in time the shapes all sway together where the trees bend, and they gather in the light. Then they all just stepped away in time. I’ll forget whatever may have changed here with the first of the light. The shade has left my sight. In my sleep a place we meant to keep I’ll lay my head beneath somewhere the ghosts still meet. And if I woke too soon, to see them fade from view into the afternoon, somewhere I thought I knew. You’ll weather when I’m gone.

Fiction 04:08
By the big hunt in this light. Did you wonder if we might? Cause you were like sun on the side of this room that I wandered through. There’s nothing you could possibly say to change this for me. Wrapped in the sound of some fictional life. Where someone like you was kissing my eyes. You were like sun on the side of this room, that I wandered through. You feel like summer before the rain. The trip we took to the lake. Say what you meant all along. You taste like coffee and cinnamon. Caught in the thick of it, I’ll send of all of this to you now: You’re ever my love Taken our time cause we have never been scared. And you hardly knew yourself, and your books may never leave my shelf. You hardly knew yourself. I won’t be another. I don’t mean to say that I was just another. I don’t think there could ever be another. I don’t mean to say I was just another.

Though it may not be right now, with the way things have worked out, it was often that I should have said I was tied in fear throughout. Then you took me by surprise, with the way you looked that night. With your coat turned up against the snow, we were taking our time, and you couldn’t have known that you’d gone to my head as I’m walking you home. She has gone. She has gone right to my head. When I wake before you now, settle in and settle down. Where the trees are dark and hollowed out, with the winter drifting south. I will know just what you mean, a kind of golden age thinking. Where we both look back to things we’d known, as we’re taking our time, and we’re taking it slow. And it’s gone to my head, and you couldn’t have known You have gone. You have gone right to my head. Though it may just be right now, with the winter drifting south.
