Track Name: Start The Fire
i hear your footsteps behind my door
and i know that this means more than before
i see the scars above your skin
and i can see just what it takes to breathe in

well i know this isn’t about me
but i still feel lost between what i can’t see
i know your pain makes sense to you
but it hurts for me to know there’s nothing i can do

but it hurts
it hurts
to watch you burn away

every minute of the day
you’re counting the seconds
you’re counting the calories
counting the steps between you and me
before you’re stripped away
all by yourself
you don’t need anyone else
to reignite the fire

you're gonna start the fire

you’re puppet in your own show
an actress directing what she doesn’t know
tripping along, slipping along
repressed memories
dancing away, trying to shake off
the nothing you eat

every minute of the day
you’re counting the seconds
you’re counting the calories
counting the steps between you and me
before you’re stripped away
all by yourself
you don’t need anyone else
to reignite the fire

you're gonna start the fire

and i’ll try to find
the corner of your mind
i’ll keep trying to find
if there’s anything left behind

so i can turn off the light
put out the fire in your eyes
before you start the fire
you’re gonna start the fire
i can’t stop the fire
Track Name: First Days of Spring
you bring me back to the old days of
restless nights
you bring me towards the future
where i can’t see the light
and when i stop to ask if it's really over
i see your lips next to mine
telling me that you love her

well its the first day of spring
but my bones are crumbling
and i don’t know how to sleep anymore
so i’ll lie next to you
lie next to you

how do you spell nostalgia
for what’s to come
dreaming of a life with you
though my body feels numb
the ice freezes over the layers underneath
it might be time to forget
the girl i meant to grieve

well its the first day of spring
but my bones are crumbling
and i don’t know how to sleep anymore
so i’ll lie next to you
lie next to you

i’m left behind
by the seasons that gave me my name
and i can’t find
a part of me to blame
without you

well its the first days of spring
but my bones are already crumbling
and i don’t know how to sleep anymore
so i’ll lie next to you
lie next to you
Track Name: Lulu's Lullaby
i know the pain you feel right now
but there’s nothing i can say
to make it better
you saw me fall into the same hole
but no one can make it better

but i
i love you
maybe that’s all that matters
and we
we love you
maybe that can be what matters

i know those painful nights alone
i know that
they creep inside you
but i also know good times at home
on the moon, on top a tree,
or just when the sky’s blue

but i
i love you
maybe that’s all that matters
and we
we love you
maybe that can be what matters
Track Name: Unresponsive
i don't think we've made
any eye contact
but i'm not too sure
hugging you would be
wrapping my arms around
a car bomb

at least i would get a response
at least i would get a response

coloring between the lines
unsaid
well i've written
everywhere i could

so take the ink from my hands
please take the ink from my hands
Track Name: Violent Love
oh my love
i’ve been fighting a war
in my mind
i've been here before
well i thought so
did you think so
oh my dear
i’m dying over here
don’t see you see
you’re killin yourself for me
all for me

it’s a violent love
a starving love
it’s a violent love
a starving love

oh my dear
every now and then
don’t you know
we can’t die again
amen
amen

it’s a violent love
a starving love
Track Name: Ghost
i look in your eyes
see only disguise
but i don't know what it means
i've locked the doors and
closed the windows
but your ghost comes back to me

chases me down the hall
makes me remember what i threw at the wall
for you

i walk through the sunrise
facing up towards the clouds
but i hear your words crawling at my feet
i run past the train tracks
and into the void
but your noise is whispering at me

it chases me down the hall
and i remember what i let i fall
for you

for you

i’ve searched all the cupboards
looked under the floors
but there’s a hum inside my ear
i’ve opened the raindrops
i watched you throw past the years
but i'm never coming back here

for you
Track Name: Don't Know You
i don’t know you
anymore
you’re the one who knocked on my door
one year ago
two years ago
i still loved you

you don't know me anymore
i'm not sure if you ever did
or what that was for
three years ago
three days ago
i still loved you

i still loved you
you still loved me too
not anymore

you were so close to me
so recently
your heavy mind
was rested on mine
i carried the weight of your love
four years ago
you held my hand
and i still loved you

i still loved you
you still loved me too
not anymore
Track Name: Blue Lakes, Tidal Waves
you were a bad idea
from the start
you locked me out to sea
eyes closed, mouth glued
mouth glued to you

blue lakes and tidal waves
blue lakes and tidal waves
Track Name: Red Winter
summer came
with no surprise
and i ran from the monsters in your eyes
you came to me in my dreams
slipping through cracks of memories

you disappeared so fast
now i can see that nothing lasts

i miss you

winter fell
sticks and stones
you were haunting through me through my bones
i came to you in your dream
told you we were meant to be

you disappeared so soon
i thought we almost walked the moon

i miss you

well, i thought you were the stonehenge
i thought you were the leaf
but when i snapped
there was nothing

well i looked for you
in the forestry of green
and i found nothing at all
nothing

tell me how we got here
tell me why we’re still here
tell me how we got here
tell me how to leave here

how to leave
how do i leave
she says to me in the dark
im losing my spark
she says to me in the dark
she steals my spark

you don’t leave here they say
as i lay down next to you
and they laugh
like i am nothing

i can’t look at the sky
can’t even say my name
so when i speak
there is nothing
nothing but you

tell me how we got here
tell me why we’re still here
tell me how i got here
tell me how to leave here

how to leave
how do i leave
she says to me in the dark
im losing my spark
she says to me in the dark
she steals my spark

i lose my spark
when i'm with her
