This Is What You Do

My tired eyes
Are like
Lonely stars
Trying to find a little
Order in the chaos

So I take a bus ride
In the afternoon
You all look so happy, and me,
I'm barely hanging on

This is what you do to me
This is what you do to me

Drag myself out on
To the floor
Trying to find a little chaos in the order
So I take a bus ride
Past your house every day
You never fully leave me
But you, you never fully stay

This is what you do to me
This is what you do to me

My tired eyes
Are like
Lonely stars
Trying to find a little
Order in the chaos

This is what you do...
This is what you do to me
This is what you do...

Come on
Smile
Smile
Come on
Smile
Smile
Smile…

 

Out Of Our Hands

The subtle shift inside, a battle's won, the inside killed the outside
And I’m sorry, if I let you think, better of me
But you were holding on too tight

Maybe we'll fall, maybe we'll fly
It's out of our hands, it’s out of our hands this time

The night's collapsing on us now, you'll feel better when you go
You didn’t push me, little one, I jumped on my own
And I’m glad , as I release my grip I’m picking up speed
No-one will follow us here

Maybe we'll fall, maybe we'll fly
It's out of our hands, it's out of our hands this time
Maybe we'll fall, maybe we'll fly
It's out of our hands, it's out of our hands this time

Meet me at the back of the crowd
This could be our time to slip away
You say the bigger you dream
The smaller your street looks in the rain

Ah come on now, but you and I know now it's so much more now
Than just being bored

Maybe we'll fall, maybe we'll fly
It's out of our hands, it's out of our hands this time
Maybe we'll fall, maybe we'll fly
It's out of our hands, it's out of our hands this time

 

January 14th

I hope this letter finds you well
Everyone here misses you so
The trees are bare and the swallows have flown
And the yard is covered in snow

Your dogs are acting crazy
I can’t figure out why
And me, well I'm thinking of you...
All the time
All of the time
Almost all of the time
All of the time

Write soon

 

Home

Guarded by the darkness, waiting side by side
We tag along at the back of crowd
You and I
Full of sorrow, full of light

This is Home
Your face is home
No taste like home
Home

Wait for me golden memories
‘Cause I have too few
Help pull me up
‘Cause I’m hanging on, help me remember
When no-ones watching
Take me Home
Home, your face is home
Home, no place like home
No taste like home
Home

Home
Home, no place like home
Home, your face is home
Home, no taste like home
Home

 

In Over My Head

Kept all the funny things you wrote
Take them with me where I go
Keeps the darkness from my door
And makes me happy

'Cause it's in over my head
It's in over my head
Over you

Stand let the winter warm your skin
Leaves you when you least expect
This is what you do to me

'Cause it's in over my head
It's in over my head
Over you

'Cause it's in over my head
It's in over my head
Over you
Over you
Over you

 

Chasing Dragons

The morning has no sympathy
It just screams across the room
Making light of everything and taking you
Now I got a creature on my mind
Go chase your dragon and I’ll chase mine

They say time is just one long straight line
They can’t deaden a girl while she's still alive
Well man, we've had one hell of a ride
Go chase your dragon and I’ll chase mine

I know, I know, I know, I know
The sweeter it gets the deeper you go
I don’t think we're coming back this time
Man, go chase your dragon, I’ll chase mine

Now there's nothing left to say, that's true
So forget about me and I’ll forget about you
Well I'm gonna find a way to catch that sun
Then I’ll leave you behind my beautiful one

 

Don't Forget

Good morning
What took you so long to receive our transmission
Now let it comfort you
Don't forget

The light never left
Don’t forget this ain’t the truth
Don’t forget yourself so soon

I see the state you're in
Felt too much and now you don’t feel anything
Don’t forget
It’s just a light a you miss

Don’t forget this ain’t the truth
Don’t forget yourself so soon

I cant believe it

Late at night the air is beaten black, we're lying,
You've got your head on my stomach

Don’t forget this ain’t the truth
Don’t forget yourself so soon
Don’t forget yourself
Don’t forget yourself so soon

 

Sad Ol Song

It's a wave from a car
As it exits the driveway
It's that silent awkward motion
The goodbye that you didn’t say
It's that sad song on the line
That cuts right through your ribcage and gets stuck inside
As the wheels kick dust in your view
You know the longer you look
The further she'll get from you
Where's the light now you've only got the shade
Well she took all the colour
Now it's back to black and white days
That sad song stings your eyes
Singing "wonder do I ever cross your mind"
Such a sad ol song
Such a sad ol song
Such a sad ol song

 

At Constant Speed

A lonely burden rests gently
This is harder than I thought
Your face is distant and paler now
It’s funny how things work out

But if I keep a constant speed
And watch everything rush past me
It’s the quickest way to leave it all behind
Only it never leaves
I'm beginning to forget, I'm beginning to forget you
I just see an outline
I'm beginning to forget, I'm beginning to forget you
I hope that's alright

I miss your kitchen window view
The effect I had on you
Your voice is lost in static waves
Erased by every day

If I keep a constant speed
And let everything rush past me
This bloody mess I can leave behind
Only it never leaves

I'm beginning to forget
I'm beginning to forget you
I just see an outline
I’m beginning to forget
I'm beginning to forget you
I hope that's alright

I'm beginning to forget
I'm beginning to forget you
I just see an outline
I'm beginning to forget
I'm beginning to forget you
I hope that's alright
I just see an outline
I just see an outline of you
Just see an outline
Just see an outline of you
