Track Name: Sunday Afternoon
Can't believe you're calling me friend again
I thought that it could never be
Can't believe this isn't the end just yet
Now life just feels so free

Cause you are the one
You are the one
And I'll wait here
I'll wait 'til Sunday afternoon
I'll wait to take you to the moon

Can't believe we're at it again, but just remember babe
Time isn't time at all
Can't believe you're lending me your soft hands
And breaking down your walls
Now my troubles feel so small

Cause you are the one
You are the one
And I'll wait here
I'll wait 'til Sunday afternoon
I'll wait to take you to the moon

Can't believe you're calling me friend, oh friend
I love you more than words could say
I love you more than words could say
Track Name: Dreamlight
I would like to thank you for everything, for everything
I would like to thank you for everything, for everything
I would like to kiss the ground for every time you gave me your smile
I would like to thank you girl for everything, for everything

‘Cause you are worthy of thanks
Soon our mouths will meet at the banks

I would like to tell you everything on my mind, everything
I would like to tell my secrets ‘til the end of time to you
I would like to thank you girl for everything, for everything
There’s not one moment I would give away

‘Cause you are worthy of thanks
Soon our mouths will meet at the banks
Of the Ganges, of the Nile, through your eyes

We are meant to be together, I know this
We are meant to be together
You wore your hair like Monday Dreamlight
You wore your hair like Venus night skies
We are meant to be together, I know this
We are meant to be one

I would like to thank you girl for everything, for everything
I would like to scold you girl for everything, for everything
I would like to make you smile; I would like to make you shine
I would like to thank you girl for everything

You are worthy of thanks
Soon our mouths will meet at the banks
Of the Ganges, of the Nile,
Through your shivers, through your sighs
We are meant to be together, I know this
We are meant to be together, I know
You wore your hair like Monday Dreamlight
You wore your hair like Neptune night skies
You wear your eyes through the rings of Saturn
You steal my thoughts but it doesn’t matter

We are meant to be together, I know this
We are meant to be together, I know
You wore your hair like Monday Dreamlight
You wore your hair like Neptune night skies
Track Name: Chrysalis
I may never kiss your lips again, love
Don't wanna pay for it in the end
And I may never hold you like I wanted
At least I won't pay for it in the end

Cause life can move so easily
But you're still tired from carrying those stones
And that's how much you mean to me
I'd rather be alone

We didn't think that it would end up like this
But we just have to play the cards we're dealt
So you can curl up into your chrysalis
And set my heart on fire until I melt

And I didn't feel nothing in your kiss, love
Cause you don't have the strength to share your warmth
Something I haven't had is what I miss, love
Cause I just wanna stand inside your storm

Cause life can move so easily
But you're still tired from carrying those stones
And that's how much you mean to me
I'd rather be alone

All because I want you near
I'd rather leave you alone
Track Name: Touch Me
There's a way that I would like to touch you
It's not a word that I'm gonna say out loud
Your skin is soft, and your baby hairs only pull me closer
'Til I might feel your soft breath dancing with mine

There's a way that I would like to get to know you
Darling if we weren't in such a rush
And you're probably most likely gonna leave me
But just forget about that for now, just be my crush (aw shit)

Well I'm rambling
I just don't want you scrambling away from me
I hope you like when I sing this way
I know I like it when you kiss me

Oh I'm still rambling
I just don't want you scrambling away from me
I hope you mind if I sing out of key
I know I like when you kiss me
When you're smilin' at me
When you're huggin' me
And when you touch me

There's a way that I would like to lay beside you
So I could feel your chest rise and fall under my hands
But for now I'll just do the dishes babe
And think about how crazy about you I am

Well I'm rambling
I just want you scrambling away too soon
I thought I could maybe just make you swoon
I know I like it when I kiss you

Now I know I'm still rambling
I just don't want you scrambling away just yet
Oh honey please promise you won't forget
I just want to know what makes you wet

Well I'm rambling
I just don't want you scrambling away just yet
Oh honey please promise you won't forget
Nothing that happens between us will I regret

Oh I know I'm still rambling
I just don't want you scrambling away too soon
I thought I could maybe just make you swoon
I know I like it when I kiss you

I'm still rambling
I just don't want you scrambling away too soon
I thought I could maybe just make you swoon
I know I like it when I kiss you
When I touch you
I wanna touch you
Track Name: In My Arms
Well all I know is I see it clearer than before
Well I guess it's far from what I had in store
But you are beautiful is every single dream
Yeah you are beautiful no matter what you think
No matter what you think

Drawing near is a time when we will go our ways
But I don't fear, I know my heart is where love stays
And there's no limit to the love I'll give to you
It's free, it's in my arms girl, don't you know it's true
Don't you know it's true
Don't you know it's true

Sophia, I don't care about tomorrow, I only want today
Sophia, I don't care what you borrow, I'll get it back someday
Why do I hesitate to make your skies turn blue?
The spirits that cling to your waist they will always sing for you
Like I always sing for you
Like I always sing for you

You said you don't want to give us the pain I'm looking for
But I know what's worse is the pain of wishing we'd done more
Either way you leave you're gonna bury me alive
So at least won't you give me something to survive?
Something to survive
Something to survive

Honestly, I don't know how I'm going to cope
The first time our eyes met, and the first that you spoke
Have changed the way I breath and talk, changed the way I love
I could swear you fell down from the sun above
From the sun above

Sophia, I don't care about tomorrow, I only want today
Sophia, I don't care what you borrow, I'll get it back someday
I want to tell you every single moment I'm so in love with you
But the footsteps you leave behind, they will always sing for you
Like I always sing for you
Like I always sing for you
Track Name: Fear
So why fear?
Track Name: Painful Games
Honey I think, think that I could really be in love with you
Honey I think there may be no turning back
Honey I wonder, sometimes wonder what's eating you
Honey I wonder do you let it defeat you too?

I know I just need to let it grow
I know i just need to let it go
If you want it to grow
If you even want it at all

Honey I wonder, wonder when will I run away with you
Honey I'm afraid there's really no chance of that
Honey I wonder, wonder if I should start forgetting you?
But then I imagine your eyes, your smile and your thighs and I forget to
(I forget to forget)

I know I just need to let it grow
I know I need to let it go
If you want it to grow
If you even want it at all

Honey I hope you're not playing one of those painful games
Honey wonder if you even know what you could have
Honey I wonder if the skies still crush you, and am I to blame?
It makes my blood boil and freeze, still I just try to laugh
(Sometimes I try)

I know I just need to let you go
I know I need to let it go
If you want it to grow
If you even want it at all
Track Name: Losing My Faith in Love
I miss you so much, just like a stone on fire
That hasn't moved that much, except for what's inside
And I think I'm beginning to lose my faith in love
Because ending is now beginning and below is now above

Below is now above

And I think I'm beginning to lose my faith in love
Track Name: Smoke and Rain
Honey I don't feel pain when the smoke is in my veins
And I'll ride this hurricane of dust and smoke and rain
Dust and smoke and rain

Maybe I want the pain, but honey I can't complain
But it's just insane, this dust and smoke and rain
Dust and smoke and rain, rain
Dust and smoke and rain

I don't want to own you
I just want a little more time
For as long as I have known you
I've taken everything as a sign of love

And honey it just ain't fair that your everything's beyond compare
And these voices from nowhere say you're divine, I swear

Honey, I never wanted to own you
Just let me into your spine
Before I even knew you
It was etched in a past life

Honey there are things I wanted to have shown you
But honey, you're doing fine
For as long as I have known you
I've taken everything as a sign of love
Track Name: I'm Done
I'm done with all your smiling
I'm done with all your spells
'Cause I've got none but the blues that's piling
None but a story to tell

Lovers we might've been are tangled into one
But the lovers we are are the lovers we're not
Lovers we might've been are fading from my head
'Cause I'm done, baby I'm just done

And I'm done with all this hoping
I'm done cause your plate is full
Done 'cause you weren't joking
When you told me that you can't fill this hole

Lovers we might've been are tangled into one
But the lovers we are are the lovers we're not
Lovers we might've been are fading from my head
'Cause I'm done, baby I'm just done

And I'm done with all this confessing
I'm done with your maybe-so's
I'm done 'cause I don't get no caressing
I'm done with all these I-don't-know's

I don't know, I don't know, I don't know
Maybe so, maybe so, maybe so
I say it now 'cause if I don't I'm gonna fight until the death
And you and I both know I haven't really lived yet

And I'm done 'cause I want to feel you
And I'm done 'cause I want your touch
To rain down from the ceiling
I'm done 'cause I want this so very much

Lovers we might've been are tangled into one
But the lovers we are are the lovers we're not
Lovers we might've been are fading from my head
'Cause I'm done, baby I'm just done

And I'm done with all this giving
I'm done, didn't get what I bargained for
I know I said I would except what I was given
But I want more, I want more, I want more
I want more, I want more, I want more (x4)
And that's never going to change
I want more, I want more, I want more
And that's never going to change
Track Name: Laid Down to Rest
Songs for the skin were the stories I told
But all that I knew was the touch of dry bone
And they wildflower smelled so sweet and unchained
The scent that revived me is now stale on my brain

I'll miss you Miss Enchantress
All that's disenchanted is now laid down to rest
Oh I wish you the best
You put the down in my vest
And then you scattered my nest all over the ground
Oh I'll miss you Miss Enchantress

And the languid days they never did leave
Even when I started to float off, I clung to your sleeves
And I stuck with this illness, I cradled the blues
And I welcomed the stillness, made the best of bad news

I'll miss you Miss Enchantress
All that's disenchanted is now laid down to rest
Oh I wish you the best
You put the down in my vest
And then you scattered my nest all over the ground
Oh I'll miss you Miss Enchantress

And I tasted her wisdom, it made me naive
Drowning in the rhythm of the ghosts I conceived
And all of their pointless stories made sense
And I tried to carry them over, now I'm stuck on the fence

I'll miss you Miss Enchantress
All that's disenchanted is now laid down to rest
Oh I wish you the best
You put the down in my vest
And then you scattered my nest all over the ground
Oh I'll miss you Miss Enchantress
