Track Name: Tangerine Heart
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
Track Name: Hatch
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
Track Name: The Wheel
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
Track Name: Missing Light
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?
Track Name: Last Rights
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
Track Name: Similar
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
Track Name: Shot In The Dark
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
Track Name: The Crickets
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
