Every evening I stay at home / there is an empty jar I keep in sight / You are a lonely little firefly / You think that you could be my guiding light? / Guide me home I will come to be so far away / I will sit beneath the apple tree / You are a lonely little apple tree / You think that you could maybe cover me / And bring me rest I wonder / how does it feel to be a / shapeshifter / and when I write another song You’ll sing along / You’ll sing along / You’ll sing along / You’ll sing along I’ll be an overcoat in time / You’ll be the only one inside I always find myself afraid of what it means to be in love I am someone that you haven’t met / Have you forgotten how to speak to me? You are someone that I haven’t met? / Have you forgotten how to speak to me? Speak to me / Speak to me / Speak to me / Speak to me

All that I wanted to do with your love when you gave it to me freely Was shake off the spells that I gathered by hand from the time that I didn’t have you What did I say when you told me you knew and that I should not be worried I said think of your life with someone like me and tell me it isn’t right But all our friends agreed that / something was going down It’s my masterpiece this love that you gave to me It’s my masterpiece this love that you gave, don’t take it away What did you say when I asked you to be mine until we both are buried Is this what you had in mind when you thought of us getting married All our friends agreed that something was going down It’s my masterpiece this love that you gave to me It’s my masterpiece this love that you gave, don’t take it away It’s my masterpiece, oh Lord Don’t take it away / Don’t let me stray / Don’t take it away / I don’t know my name Don’t take it away / Don’t take it away from me

I see nothing around / but the promise of a future / Staying late at the bar No one answers / No applause Do you want me back here again? / I’ll play anytime just tell me when I’ll never get it back again / All that time, that time I’ll dress just like him / smoke cigarettes / sunglasses I’ll hang around with the best / make in-roads / with the masses Do you want me back here again? / I’ll play anytime just tell me when I’ll never get it back again / All that time, that time Do you want me back here again? / I’ll play anytime just tell me when I’ll never get it back again All that time, that time All that time, that time

You say that love grows cold / I think I know what you mean / You say that love grows old I think I know what you mean / Like a river in the snow / it doesn’t feed anything Like a god that doesn’t show / it doesn’t mean anything If you feel the spark again / somewhere deep, off in a dream / will it matter even then Or will it be just as it seems / will you be like everyone / and drift away from everything Or will be just like I am / and never leave this place again And if knowing weighs a ton / I don’t wanna know no one / I’ve been searching in the dark I’ve been waiting for the spark / Will it come just like a rain? / Will it ask me for my name? Will it be something I’ve seen / somewhere off in a dream? / somewhere off in a dream? Dream

Slow ride on a long parade / I leave home and walk for miles There’s no one here but you to guide me / I see, I’m lonely for your love I’ll share with your altered hands / the ghost moves but I don’t mind Happens everytime the sun goes down / I doubt, I’m lonely for your love Looking for the truth in every stone / The stars abandon those who are alone If solitude is anger / I’m furiously maimed / It’s just the way that I was raised To be held is a truthful way / To be held in a sinner’s gaze / To be held / To be held / to be saved Closed windows and it looks like rain / cars climb and fall back in To your arms where I’m beside you / Hold true, I’m lonely for your love Looking for the truth in every line / Curiously longing for a sign The coriander prophets / have a name for every day / But they’re too difficult for me to say To be held is a truthful way / To be held in a sinner’s gaze To be held / To be held / to be saved To be held / to be held / to be saved

You see the ocean / I see the sea It’s the same captive freedom that makes us into we A disfigured soldier’s face / turns us all to weeping children when it’s shown at the wake I am stronger / than I’m weak / Or at least that’s how I want it to be / Let the hospice change the sheets Cause’ I don’t believe you / I don’t believe you / What you know means nothing to me / Cause I don’t believe you Divine prospect / with it’s hand / casts a shadow falling hard across a foreign land Intuition / respect / comes with someone else’s kids trading swigs from your neck I can’t show you / What I see / It’s a nightmare known only to me How it hurts when you tell me, “Please,” “I don’t believe you” / I don’t believe you / What you know means nothing to me Cause I don’t believe you And the curse / gets worse / I’m the one lifting God into the back of a hearse I go home / Help myself / To something I can disassociate from my health Don’t watch me / Turn away / You know I always stand by my man Even though I’ve got the upperhand, well “I don’t believe you” / I don’t believe you / What you know means nothing to me Cause I don’t believe you / I don’t believe you / I don’t believe you / I don’t believe you what you know means nothing to me / cause I don’t believe you

I tell you lies and I don’t feel so bad / I spend our money on each passing fad You have a perfect plan that I don’t understand Why don’t you want to run away? / Why don’t you want to run away from me? I saved the money that I thought I could / I can’t convince you that I am no good You are so beautiful and I’m an animal Why don’t you want to run away? / Why don’t you want to run away from me? Why don’t you want to? / Why don’t you want to? / Why don’t you want to run away?

I can't write that / You're like the moon on / Cold autumn evenings / That’s tired and useless I make coffee / most every morning / Sit by the window / chase what I'm after Hard light through window shades / Cold wind through the door Four in the morning / untouched perfection / Don't have to wake up / Don't have to get dressed No neck, no strings / Don't have to play this / I'm just a body / Doing it's business The sun hangs like a bell in the sky / It rings in my ears I'll be a writer / I'll be a writer / I'll be a writer

I sat by you in the back of the worship room / Hanging banners but only to be close to you Alison / Alison / Alison Participating in that shimmering praise / Your red, red hair brushed back from your face Why won’t you share some of that holy grace? Alison, Alison, Alison, Alison Four days on and I still haven’t talked to you / With pain and devotion I watch from across the room Alison / Alison / Alison You’re so cruel / You’re so divine / I wanna make your piety mine Oh, Lord Jesus, send me a sign? Alison, Alison, Alison, Alison

Forget the promises that our fathers made / they will conspire, then blow away But in your arms tonight it’s really all the same / because with you I’m never alone Only Jesus used to hear me when I cried / but like my savior you appeared at my side And I don’t know if we’ll get out of here alive / but with you I’m never alone Why do I worry / with all the banners falling down There’s a kingdom in your eyes / where I can really move around I’m cursed and fearful / most of the time / But it really liberates me when you tell me that you’re mine Collapse in courage, I’ve a family of my own / corrupted paradise rolls from me like a stone I’ve searched the tomb a thousand times and he is gone / but with you I’m never alone

I’m on a short dark wave / can’t see the shore for miles And while you’re sleeping away / it comes together but it won’t stay I found a door in the sea / down through the ocean floor Full dark through the windows and I’ll see you again Bright country in wait / cool hills crash lightly into space Air is clean and composed and I’m staring at a picture of waste The kind of shame that’s unreal / sitting pretty in my backseat I don’t know when we’ll get home but I’ll see you again
