Track Name: Barcelona
hotel rooms and borrowed beds
she indulges while i pretend
that if i have enough to drink
there will be no room to think
about the end or who i am

sleeping til the sun slants low
narrow alleys, hidden plazas, don’t know where i go
she helps me disappear
a day, a week, a year
far from home, all alone

barcelona let me in
i am tired of who i’ve been
let me be somebody else barcelona give me shelter
in your shadows and your spells so i can leave myself again

before the new century made her shine
we ran away and we stayed up all through the night
picking random subway stops
not knowing where we would get off
finding life at morning light

barcelona let me in
i am tired of who i’ve been
let me be somebody else barcelona give me shelter
in your shadows and your spells before i have to be myself again

let me try another life
lose me on a taxi ride
put my pieces back together tell me we will live forever
let me try another life
lose me on a taxi ride
tell me we will live forever
tell me we will live forever
tell me we will live forever

barcelona let me in
i am tired of who i’ve been
let me be myself again barcelona give me shelter
in your shadows and your spells so i can leave myself again barcelona..... barcelona.....
Track Name: Catch Me
it feels like years since i last really slept
i got chills through my skin from nervous sweat
accelerating, hallucinating, digging in my nails
but one thing i have: they don’t see me yet

they will fake a smile, hunting all the time, never close their eyes
but what they don’t know, what they never gonna know,
what they don’t know: how to catch me

such a white knuckle high, when i burn too fast
i’m addicted, to the rush, i’m addicted to the crash
dues are paid, my mistakes are made, and all the money spent
and there’s no one now who can hold me back

they will fake a smile, hunting all the time, never close their eyes
they could know it all, they can write the code, they can take control
they could scout around, nose to the ground, try to drag me down
but what they don’t know, what they never gonna know,
what they don’t know: is how to catch me

all my meters are broken down, i run super hot
but i’d rather burn, manic up and down, than not burn at all
oh my body burns, my belly churns, but i like it this hard
i wear jewelry made of scars
i won’t stay quiet in the shed
i’ll stop when i am dead

they will fake a smile, hunting all the time, never close their eyes
but what they don’t know, what they never gonna know,
what they don’t know: how to catch me
Track Name: Burn
you, sun flare in my eyes
you flicker on my skin
you, lightning down my spine
you whisper down the wire

if only you could be with me and feel what i feel
we could light it up, light it up, light it up and
watch it burn, let it burn let it burn, let it burn

we crackle in the heat
we, hunted but complete
we, wearing fire rings
we float above the street

so come with me, i’m all you need, tear up your history
c’mon let’s light it up, light it up, light it up and
watch it burn, let it burn let it burn, let it burn

if this is what it costs to change, then make the cut, i’ll take the blame whatever parts remain ashes will rain
and we will blow away as we rise into the sky
mixing matter, you and i, ten seconds
together forever time and space untethered
edges feathered, surrender, it’s now or never,
so close your eyes, cross wires, spark fire and watch it burn

let it burn, let it burn, let it burn
Track Name: Awake
sun is up and you breathe barely out of reach
sneakers off jeans on you sleep
time to go, c’mon, wake up coffee in your cup
see you soon talk all night again

what i like about you is your different mind
but there will come a morning when we’re out of time
so let’s talk all night so we’ll know one day

at least we stayed awake
at least we stayed awake

you met a girl, someone new
i was scared but then i did too
fell in love with the days gaining speed
try to mail, try to call spring turns into fall
“keep in touch” so we say
drift away

what i liked about you was your different mind
but came a morning we were finally out of time
I’m glad we talked all night, now we can say
at least we stayed awake
at least we stayed awake
you can keep me talking til the morning light
i don’t know how you do it but you make time fly
at least we stayed awake

now you are there and i’m here
and so many years have gone by we don’t look the same
but i know if i call, if i catch you after all
i’ll hold on and we’ll talk again til dawn

and we will stay awake yeah we will stay awake

you can keep me talking til the morning light
i don’t know how you do it but you make time fly
at least we stayed awake
and we will stay awake
yeah we will stay awake
Track Name: So We Love
“what’s your name”... so it begins
and it’s okay if this is where it ends
strangers can tell the truth
so say what you see, and i’ll remember you

each one fleeting
it keeps repeating
our patterns weaving and none of it will last....

so we love, so we love

young mirrors, these faces, eyes up, ready for the seeds
someday they’ll see the roots they grew into me

we are daughters now, but soon ancestors
we chain a lifeline, and we know that it will last

so we love, so we love
so we love, so we love

i was sitting on the beach, a week before my wedding to the wrong guy
and this man comes up to me, this crazy looking dude,
i didn’t know if he was going to ask for money, or my number...
but he put his hands together like he was going to pray
and he bowed
and he said the exact words i needed to hear
i swear, the exact phrase word for word
and then he walked off
he just walked off

so we love, so we love
so we love, so we love
