Sold

I sold your love for another one I lost it while you were out
I sold your love for another one and I want you out

There are two men that I can't see Lookin for the way to me

Oh where do they go,
the promises that my father told? 

Where will he go,

the one that I did behold?

I sold your love for another one I lost it while you were out
I sold your love for another one

And I want you out

And I want you out

No, I want
you

 

 

Midwater

I tried to write a song about you
But like my faith the details fell short
And I don't know what they call that here, but to me, its null and void

Its in the darkness I awake
And in the darkness that I might stay. Forty days without your face...

I only wandered to this place because I thought I'd find you here. I'm at the bottom of the ocean, without breath till you appear. Won't you breathe into me, finally?

Some say I'm lookin' for a man that never came to be. After twenty years the joke's on me
..Well, maybe
After months of ceaseless searchin'

all my letters been returned
I keep writing and I still believe that you notice me

I only wandered to this place because I thought I'd find you here. I'm at the bottom of the ocean, without breath till you appear. Won't you breathe into me, finally?

 

Shelly

If its time to call it out
if its time to lay her down
If its time, if its time, if its time

Then I will go to the graveyard, oh and I will fall, like they all will fall and I will walk back home alone

 and she'll watch me go

if its time to cut it out
if its time to cure my doubt
if its time, if its time, if its time

Then I'll let her go where the greatest go
And I'll watch her soar more than she has flown
And I'll let you take till I have no more

this is my bargaining plea
I walk around on empty
you're not in the business of sparing, I know
but is there a limit to how far hurt can go?

no, no, no

if this is life above the ground,
what's the fear in going
down?

Gatekeeper

You could call him the gatekeeper, if you wanted to

Cause he's the only one who knows the way from me to you

You could call him the zookeeper, Oh if you wanted to

Cause I'm caged with the thought of you. I'm caged

with the thought of you.

 

 

Discerpo

Untie the rope and let me go this time. Drifting faster than you thought I'd try

I could pave every road
I could spare every dime
Lead you down the dotted line
But you'll only do just what you like, You'll only do just what you like

Oh, endless sea, cut me from the vine. Solitary is my ship, my life

I could pave every road
I could spare every dime
Confess my love a thousand times, But you'll only do just what you like, You'll only do just what you like. You'll only do just what you like

Spinnin' silk sorrow, Oh its a web so fine. Your limbs entwined. Helpless by design Helpless by design Helpless by design

Well, I don't need that tree
I don't need that tree
Cut my branch, let me leave Cut my branch, let me leave Cut my branch, let me leave

Oh endless sea, cut me from the...

 

 

Requiem

My mother gone, my love, my mother gone.

My lover gone, my love, my lover gone
To see whats beyond the blue high plains, I go to see whats beyond the blue high plains, I go I go

My sister gone, my love, my sister gone. My brother gone, my love, my brother gone. To see new life beyond the plains, I go
To see new life beyond the plains, I go
I go
to wait
no more.

 

 

 

Mine to Bear

You can't move
I'm paralyzed too
In my mind, there is nothing new
Just pictures of you, just pictures of you

I wasn't pleasant
Tryin to survive on
an hour of sleep
and old sappy love songs

And you always wish
someone could know just how you fair, but it is mine to bear
it is mine to bear

 

 

Destroyer

I am that one,
I'm easy to leave
He looked at me and said I'm not what you think

He said take it apart if thats what you need to build it back together,
your life without me
I'm your destroyer

in lovers' clothing

You are that one
You write your letters long
But you won't stay for hardly at all And I've set myself up for the fall

Well, take it apart if that's what you need to build it back together,
your life without me
You, my destroyer

in lovers clothing

I am,
I am,
I am, that one.

 

 

Nothing

I am nothing more, than what you found
