remember when we sang until we couldn't feel our heads? but who's to really say that it hasn't already happened yet? and to say that i miss you might be better left unsaid so-called beginnings are also so-called ends tangerine heart turn me on right from the start breathe in two, one we are the origami cranes folding in the sky sucking candy apples, sweeter than time you know you are the grapes that make the finest wine oh, please tell me what song is in your head tonight tangerine heart turn me on right from the start breathe in two, one and bite my tongue to taste the words i never told to anyone to start again, we'll let this end

Hatch 02:53
a summer without any sleep we are higher than the trees batten down into the hatch scrap pretending to b flat shed our skin; what could’ve been am i the only odd man in? the last balloons are on their way into space take me with you just in case we can't know what time will bring i want to swim inside your brain what we think we know is true we only see what we want to the last balloons are on their way into space take me with you just in case

The Wheel 03:00
rinse your wounds off in the sea let the sting make you clean and even though our place is in the sky i’m a rider on a dream but tonight we feel real you’re all i have as i spin around the wheel and someday we won’t heal and someday we won’t feel anymore our eyes will be shut to the world wrap your hand around my wrist you can cross me off your list an owl glides low through the night seeing all that isn’t lit but tonight we feel real you’re all I have as i spin around the wheel and someday we won’t heal and someday we won’t feel anymore our eyes will be shut to the world

it only stings because it's new nothing time can't heal, if you want it to but do you want it to? what if i could say to you? all the things that i wanna do but i can barely make a move melting like candles in your room there’s no logic behind love's gate i don't know why i keep what i keep inside of me imagine if we acted differently but nothing happens over night ‘cept a bad night’s sleep and a missing light it's okay to like what you like as a child, growing up what if kurt cobain was told he was loved? it kinda makes you sick and have you changed enough? oh have you changed enough?

Last Rights 03:44
i tried hard not to hear you hide and look the other way a gorgeous crush in the rearview looks like with something to say they try to make us feel older colder and farther away but we are ice in the fire fragile, not meant to stay one of the luckiest dozen a billion broken backs and i can know how i got here not how to give it all back the tepid culture of circumstance steered off of the track easy victims of finance nickelodeon gak you say reading over last rights make way we can hardly breathe try not to let it get under your skin and don’t be ashamed i see my breath in the mirror i see it inside the rain you say reading over last rights make way we can hardly breath you say reading over last rights make way we can hardly breath

Similar 03:50
we’re not the center of anything or are we too wrapped up to grow? decisions are complicated and doubts they’re always changing some days are just made for driving alone tangerine rain in the garden of splintered wings there’s so many ways to see the same thing but i see your face radiate in hundred-year-old paint let me in and oh, let me stay we’re more similar than we think we’re all what could’ve been in someone else’s skin through habits and judgement to the birds i crave your citrus and all its forgiveness let me in and oh, give me yours we’re more similar than we think we’re more similar than we think

i'm waking up to your needle burning slowly, where does it go? sand, glass, and stone if we're alone, send us back into the glow dripping honey all the way home hmm listen close how much we’ve grown why don't you tell me you know? i'm waking up to your needle the lights are off but i see you caught in a net and i need you one eye open; shot in the dark wash ourselves gone i'm seeing stars send us back into the glow another wheel is spinning round i'm making plans just to break them i've payed for all my addictions and now you'll pray for forgiveness ahh how quickly we lose sight you know burning slowly, where does it go? how do you want to be forgotten? how do you want to be forgotten? or did you think you’d be remembered? i’m waking up to your needle

The Crickets 04:51
when you were connecting the stars on my forehead together we were figuring out what the forecast read are you really leaving so fast? your smile might save us all, well that and good timing but let's try to keep that between just the four of us tonight but the fireplace is asleep and the piano is not listening feeling time melt away down your beautiful face your eyes contain more life than space maybe you can stay just one more day grab some of those books off the bookcase pressing queen anne's lace into glowing snowflakes falling on your beautiful face oh, your beautiful face fall is comin' around again in the city nestled inside of the wind between china and italy take as much of me as you can let me lay my head in your chest slowing down whatever's too fast 'til four in the morning feeling time melt away down your beautiful face your eyes contain more life than space maybe you can stay just one more day hold me as tight as you can as we drift down this wormhole nibbling your perfect ear like september's first apple the crickets always know what to say when dancing without any judgement i think you were carved by the world's greatest architect feeling time melt away down your beautiful face your eyes contain more life than space maybe you can stay just one more day
