Fresh Paint 04:05
I trace every curve Outlining our latest work The fresh paint Dripping down You always get my deepest blues The reds and orange, well, that’s all you It’s the mixing that’s magic A new cosmographical hue Yeah when we move real slow Watch as our shapes transform Into another world I ain’t seen before Floating through uncharted air No parachute, but I don’t care Know I’ll land safe as long as you’re there Lost in waves deep in the sea Made of Egyptian cotton sheets I find you And then I can breathe I taste the ocean on your lips I feel the sand through your fingertips Your hands through my hair like the wind What a trip, what a trip And when we move real slow Watch as our shapes transform Into another world I ain’t seen before Floating through uncharted air No parachute, but I don’t care Know I’ll land safe as long as you’re there I don’t need no sleep You are all my dreams A canvas just for me Endless possibilities I don’t need reality When you are lying next to me Adrift in reverie A picture only we can see And when we move real slow Watch as our shapes transform Into another world I ain’t seen before Floating through uncharted air No parachute, but I don’t care Know I’ll land safe as long as you’re there I trace every curve Outlining our latest work The fresh paint Dripping down

Settle 04:35
Feels like we’ve been here before Back to back against the wall Trying to find where we went wrong From deep in love to high and scorned Blurry tears roll down my cheeks As hazy words play on repeat Trying to peg just you what you meant And if I meant just what I said We can’t seem to land on the same page Maybe ours should’ve been an unwritten story And now I can’t help but wonder If we could be better Would we stay together And should we recover Will we have won a battle Or simply settled For some time, been hard to see Is this contrived or meant to be Lovers clash and that’s alright But we cash in on every fight Then I think how can it be Our love began so naturally Held on to this fantasy But maybe it’s just blinding me We can’t seem to land on the same page Maybe ours should’ve been an unwritten story And now I can’t help but wonder If we could be better Would we stay together And should we recover Will we have won a battle Or simply settled And now I can’t help but wonder If we could be better Would we stay together And should we recover Will we have won a battle Or simply settled And now I can’t help but wonder If we could be better Would we stay together And should we recover Will we have won a battle Will we have won a battle Or simply settled

You walk on in With that look about you and I can see that grinny grin in your eyes You nod hello From the comfort by the door Act like coming over’s not worth your time But I see through you baby Oh you bet I do Think you’re too cool Take me a fool But I won’t bite So quit your playin’ I know you’re fakin’ And it ain’t right You are not my friend Seems that you never were in the end So let’s not do that thing where we pretend Cause we’re not friends I’m not your friend You’re not my friend Yeah we’re not friends I’m not your friend You’re not my friend I think back to When I met you, I just knew Something bout those steely blues screamed so loud With that charm you donned Came to play like you were armed Still I let you plead the benefit of the doubt Now I see through you baby Oh you bet I do Think you’re too cool Take me a fool But I won’t bite So quit your playin’ I know you’re fakin’ And it ain’t right Cause you are not my friend Seems that you never were in the end So let’s not do that thing where we pretend Cause we’re not friends I’m not your friend You’re not my friend Yeah we’re not friends I’m not your friend You’re not my friend Yeah you are not my friend Seems that you never were in the end So let’s not do that thing where we pretend Cause we’re not friends I’m not your friend You’re not my friend Yeah we’re not friends I’m not your friend You’re not my friend

One more candle on the cake, dear One more line when you smile One more friend dressed up in white with One more “Oh you’re next in line” We’ve only a few good years left now Yeah that’s what they say But who’s really counting anyway One more penny in the bank, yeah One less loan left to pay One more eighty-hour week so You can finally get that raise Cause you’ll never be rich If you ain’t hustlin’ every day But who’s really counting anyway One failed driver’s test Too many exes, I confess Three strikes to my name For all the chances I’ve not claimed And size, no it doesn’t matter Said nobody ever, never measuring up You’ve got to be better You’re on the clock It’s now or never One more minute for the goodbye That you wish wasn’t your last One more shot at that old daydream That you left in the past Cause there’ll always be next time For the things that you didn’t say But who’s really counting anyway Cause there’ll always be next time For the moments you didn’t make But who’s really counting anyway Yeah who’s really counting anyway Who’s really counting anyway

Take You 05:07
Say what you came here to say Honey don’t hesitate You’re okay Hey, so you had a hard day Let me take you away Away Spill the tea I’ll pour the wine We can ease the pain While we share some time You’ll tell me where it went wrong I’ll tell you you’re not alone One more hour One more cup Won’t you stay the night Let me fill you up We need more than we let on I’ll hold you ‘til the light dawns Why, there’s no need to be shy Being real’s not a crime Let me undress your mind Unwind, free yourself of confines Feels so good just to cry Baby cry Spill the tea I’ll pour the wine We can ease the pain While we share some time You’ll tell me where it went wrong I’ll tell you you’re not alone One more hour One more cup Won’t you stay the night Let me fill you up We need more than we let on I’ll hold you ‘til the light dawns (Let me take you) Let me take you, let me take you away I’ll take you, let me take you away I’ll take you, let me take you away I’ll take you, let me take you away I’ll take you, let me take you away Hey, so you had a hard day Let me take you away Away Spill the tea I’ll pour the wine We can ease the pain While we share some time You’ll tell me where it went wrong I’ll tell you you’re not alone One more hour One more cup Won’t you stay the night Let me fill you up We need more than we let on I’ll hold you ‘til the light dawns Spill the tea I’ll pour the wine We can ease the pain While we share some time You’ll tell me where it went wrong I’ll tell you you’re not alone One more hour One more cup Won’t you stay the night Let me fill you up We need more than we let on I’ll hold you ‘til the light dawns

Each day, waking up Feeling like you got something to prove Don’t let it fool ya It’ll do something to ya Shutting down, with your mind made up Acting like you got so much to lose Won’t make it better Ain’t no warmth in fair weather And he can tell ya it’ll all be alright “But baby, that don’t help me sleep at night” You can’t let go If you could just let go of Those walls Let them come down You can’t hide from the fear But you can let it out And you may not see it now But there’s always sun Up above the clouds Above the clouds, yeah They ask, so you say “Doin’ well, seeds are starting to grow” Can’t let them see It’s not quite so green Hiding out in your empty grove Trying to reap what you never sewed It won’t ease the pain Ain’t no life without rain And he can tell ya it’ll all be alright “But dammit that won’t help me sleep at night” You can’t let go If you could just let go of Those walls Let them come down You can’t hide from the fear But you can let it out And you may not see it now But there’s always sun Up above the clouds Up above the clouds so high There’s a bright, blue, wide open canvas sky Up above the clouds so high There’s nothing but sunny days And space for you to fly To fly Yeah
