Lyrics
 

1. Baby Blue

where i've been
i can't recall
no you don't remember me at all
i spend my life
getting high
and thinking of you most the time


i heard your name
in a song
but i thought on for way too long
about a girl
who wasn't you
she don't sparkle the way you do

my baby blue won't you come too
my baby blue won't you come to


when the sky 
and sun repeat
i stumble over my lonely feet
i think of where
your face would go
if you'd been too scared to let it show

cuz you remind
me of a ghost
that used to hang around
i haven't seen
her face in days
cuz all i can think about

when i sail out
she flies in
we don't know where we begin



2. Changing Me

another rainy day
the skies are bare of any songbird that flew
makes it hard to walk away
disguised as anyone that you once knew

but she's quietly changing me

if you listen the city will speak
she'll tell you she's only 
in love with the loneliest
poetic know it all kings
yeah that's what she thinks

but she's quietly changing me
she's quietly changing me

these looks are just for show
i'm no one you used to know
will you just sail away
will you just keep on floating by


take this time to walk around
every day you find
you leave behind more of your mind
see the worst lies they can't quite make sounds
it's why i quit your town



3. Bad Wine

from the first time your world was serenaded
to the last time you said you wouldn't show
you danced like you were a raindrop
with a sky who loved too much to let you go

we'd run around the city
i held your hand while you were sleeping

we looked for excuses not to wander
under sheets was everything we'd need
we took turns separating heart strings
and kept them for a rainy day in spring

we'd run around the city
i held your hand while you were sleeping

this town is just full of bad wine
you can leave but you're just leaving me behind
this town is just full of bad wine

when the snow fell you watched it from your coffee
and like anything you said you weren't afraid
i know i know that when the snow melts we'll be laughing
built from unaltered faith that time heals everything

did you know that you impressed me
all along you made the best me



4. Oh! Mistress

oh! mistress
just one wish
to be on your lips
to taste you
and chase through
this game to your hips

oh! mistress
one more wish
my fingers on your dress
to touch you
so much you
light up my cigarette

and as it burns we can dance across the floor
i'll sing you stories like i've never sung before
la la la

oh! mistress
just one wish
to live in your lungs
to fulfill
your sinful
secrets from everyone

and as we burn we can roll across the floor
i'll stir up stimulating songs you can't ignore
la la la


oh! mistress
one last wish
to sleep in your palms
to want you
and flaunt you
on the tip of my tongue



5. Wake Up

wake up the moon
she's sleeping in
i can't believe
she's giving in

to a girl
a girl she loved
herself ago
pieces come falling down


the driving eye
behind your tears
waste away
a thousand years

you walk the clouds
you burn my face
you turn to be everything
that's just a little out of place

wake up
wake up to me




6. City Lights (blinded)

i turn over my shoulder
it's just garbage cans and city lights
car alarms and too much time
to be thinking about you
i know you must be crying
when the snow keeps falling
and you're still trying to get back home

man these buildings sure look bare
like the memory of three days ago
snow flakes and stomach aches
just thinking about you
i know you must be lonely
when the snow keeps falling
and you only want to forget about me

but these city lights keep me awake at night
i've got cold hands but i'm not gonna fight it
i'm not sure what to say but i don't want it to go away
so please come back and see these pretty sights
these city lights

i try to relive the moment
of our arms around a few days or so
pretty eyes and butterflies
just thinking about you
i know you must be crying
when the snow keeps falling
and you're still trying to get back home

you know she's gonna face the night
when i go my own way




7. A Hard Day for Dreaming

nothing stops this broken
sky from falling on me
lifting clouds with sounds of
kissing lips so far away

it's a hard day for dreaming

rusted sun in my mind
swallowed up this sad machine
will we atrophy
the hands we're holding
my hearts crossed and folded

it's a hard day for dreaming
it's a hard day for dreaming

heavy water buries
bridges in the room
heart felt waves from seas
just passing by a blueing sky

it's a hard day for dreaming
tell me are you dreaming
