Dancer 03:02 video
Born to be a dancer Unfulfilled by their spectating eyes She was cast away, a stray Running to survive 
And she was a stranger Unfamiliar with their cast iron smiles She had gone out west to bury what's left Of a speculative nest she tried to forget So I guess (I guess) This is it (That's it) I'm not anywhere closer to where I was going Oh (I guess) That this is it (That's it)
I'll send you a postcard if something reminds me of you And she felt the danger On lonely highways growing desolate and wild Her tattoos fading in the rays Of the summer smile And quick like a cancer She made her way to where she lived as a child Back out west where the only thing left are the memories she repressed In the valley of death So I guess (I guess) This is it (That's it) I'm not anywhere closer to where I was going Oh (I guess) That this is it (That's it)
I'll send you a postcard if something reminds me of you Tried my best to stay clean and satisfied But I couldn't figure it out to save me I'm back home to disappear but I don't want to talk about it I was never enough for you to love me baby, please So I guess (I guess) This is it (That's it) I'm not anywhere closer to where I was going Oh (I guess) That this is it (That's it)
I'll send you a postcard if something reminds me of you

Don't Speak 03:13
Shame, bitterness and judgment Why? I just want to let the feeling die And get on with my life Blame, misdirection and resentment Tried to diminish all my exits Why? Thought you wanted me out of your mind Cause I was a waste of space and time Think it'd work when stars align But now we don't speak Isn't that weird? I want to believe it was something special Now it's just history that I can't remember Did you know I'd go to spare you the argument? If it's your move I can handle the truth but without you I've got nothing to lose Forgot all the names of your crew
Now it feels like a daydream so Here's a song of redemption sung for you. And now we don't speak Isn't that weird? I want to believe it was something special Now it's just history that I don't remember Tell me you felt a sudden fear of affection And I kept calling you out of love Now you're calling me out of the blue just to say I'm thinking of you Now we don't speak Isn't that weird? I want to believe in you And now we don't speak Isn't that weird?
I used to believe it was something special Now it's just history that I won't remember Tell me you feel a sudden fear of affection And I keep calling you out

Fistful of bees and a mouthful of honey The second for love and the first ones for money And I can't compete with the bruised up persuasion Is it diamonds or me? An anxious confrontation My damage cast us overboard I can't control it anymore I wanted your heart and your soul You left a sting that never let go I'm swelling again guess you already know Fisful of bees and a mouthful of honey So come pollinate me with fruit from a bad tree We are cursed to conceive it we don't want to believe it We should sow azaleas and daisies Your sting left my joy in vein and swollen for hours My damage cast us overboard I can't control it anymore I wanted your heart and your soul You left a sting that never let go I'm swelling again guess you already know Too cold to integrate Now I can barely stay awake I was never a king, just a drone for a queen My damage cast us overboard I can't control it anymore I wanted your heart and your soul You left a sting that never let go I'm swelling again guess you already know

There's a hole where the home goes Tufts of weeds left to overgrow In years of neglect the sun still glows Need to grow before I grow old I keep sleeping in my wet clothes It's not raining, inside my head it pours and pours Trying hard not to reach you Don't worry I don't hate you I just think we need a summer apart I left my heart at home in the dark I won't tell you what you want to know
I drove myself home all alone in the dark I really want to take it slow I hope you already know During normal waking hours I waiver in my self worth Feel so anxious beneath the summit of love Everything losing pressure How do I address her? When the years drag on I forget it's been so long Trying hard not to reach you Don't worry I don't hate you I just think we need a summer of love I left my heart at home in the dark I won't tell you what you want to know
I drove myself home all alone in the dark I really want to take it slow I hope you already know Trying hard not to reach you Don't worry I don't hate you I just think we need a summer of love I left my heart at home in the dark I won't tell you what you want to know
I drove myself home all alone in the dark I really want to take it slow I hope you already know I hope you already know

XO Skeleton 02:37
No matter what I say I will never escape this (XO Skeleton) Feel it crawling beneath the floorboards to where I'm sleeping (Somethings creeping) And I'm confusing grace with fear and love and what feels right for me Makes your body sore and slow how dare it fail you (XO Skeleton) Brings you down to your knees as you plead and beg for mercy (Sunday sleeping) Cause I've been losing grace over fear and love and what feels right for me I don't want to feel down or shame If only I could change my XO skeleton I've been losing this race, last place If only I could change my XO skeleton Feels so strange to be dead and walk among the living (XO skeleton) Nothing impresses me but damn taste that sugar (Got me shakin') Now I'm losing sleep over fear and love and what I don't need to say I don't want to feel down or shame If only I could change my XO skeleton I've been losing this race I'm last place If only I could change my XO skeleton I'm just fixing my crown, xo skeleton Don't try so hard to let yourself down I don't want to feel down or shame If only I could change my XO skeleton I've been losing this race, last place Only I can change my XO skeleton I don't want to feel down or shame If only I could change my XO skeleton I've been losing this race I'm last place If only I could change my XO skeleton XO skeleton XO skeleton

Lurkin' 03:40
This ain't the type of rain That I like to see when I'm walking in dreams This ain't the time and place To be seeing your face When it's been so long, so long since the day We went our separate ways So give me a brace or fair warning When you're back in town Staying home if you're lurking around I don't mean to place no blame I just gotta retreat, maybe get some sleep I hate to be so vain, guess I'll never change When it's been so long, so long since the day We went our separate ways So give me a brace or fair warning When you're back in town Staying home if you're lurking around I never bothered you Labored or fathered you Baby you're not my sun But I shouldn't argue when I never really wanted to call It's been so long, so long since the day We went our separate ways So give me a brace or fair warning When you're back in town Staying home ever since that day We went our separate ways So give me a brace or fair warning When you're back in town Staying home if you're lurking around So long, so long

Get Out 03:19
Do you remember wasting light in September? Thought that we'd grow old forever Only true friends matter And like old photographs they scatter Love or hate you take the ladder I'm still locked in a cage you rattle No way out I was a fool when I met you I'd do anything just trying to impress you, undress you I hid my feelings like I had none Cruisin' with you shotgun Friendship is the new sport With you I'd go anywhere So tell me where you want to stay Cause baby I could change I'm really up for anything at all I want to save this, maybe rearrange it And try before there's nothing left to reconnect us now I can only hope to make things right someday Your new number evading me You couldn't help to change my ways it was all too crazy Now I keep on acting out And you know I'm hurting I'm too slow Why can't I just apologize, compassion it's basic Self hatred's shameless And I don't want to go out I want to stay I don't want to change Not really up for anything at all Don't want to say this, but I'm tired of waiting We tried before, there's nothing left to connect You are breaking my patience There's nothing left to reconnect us now Get out Just tell if you want to stay Cause maybe we can change I'm really up for anything at all Maybe we can save it, maybe rearrange it And try before there's nothing left to reconnect I was waiting so patient When there was nothing left to reconnect I don't want to say this but I'm tired of waiting We tried before, there's nothing left to reconnect us now

Lost cause, baby why'd you bother You give and never receive the right attention from me When I was broken, dirty and called it natural I hadn't grown from the kid you use to dig way back then And yet unafraid you waltz into my wicked world Don't mind the ghosts while we sleep
We both prefer to leave early but do you want to go home? Cause we can stay out, it's getting late out We could go back home and watch our shows We can move, we can stay Make a home right here or far away As long as I'm there with you We can turn down the lights and draw the blinds When the world outside has lost its mind I feel a sudden relief whenever you're next to me So hard, how can I even tell you the kind of person I was before you gave me your love I was naked, ready to give in to dying alone But your eyes wide as the valley where I go alone every february And now I want to go home This place is played out I want you right now So lets go upstairs and love some more We can move, we can stay Make a home right here or far away As long as I'm there with you We can turn down the lights and draw the blinds When the world outside has lost its mind I feel a sudden relief whenever you're next to me I'll keep you guessing Limit my messes And drive you through the new york state When I'm racing It's only you I'm missing So pack me up and return me to love Return me to love Return me to love We can move, we can stay Make a home right here or far away As long as I'm there with you We can turn down the lights and draw the blinds When the world outside has lost its mind I feel a sudden relief whenever you're next to me Whenever you're next to me Whenever you're next to me

Swim, surrounded by birds and trees Whites in stripes on every peak Don't take me back I don't want to go home Peace, wine at night and your cold knees Light a fire and feel the valley breeze They'll name that park for just me and you So why can't we stay? It's only been a few days There's no price I wouldn't pay just to roam free with you, baby I'm gonna tell the folks back home we took the show on the road Far, never felt as far as it could be Needed someone I love next to me This world felt flat before you came my way Oh then there's home, not a choice just like anything goes Where I sleep and where I fold my clothes But will I find peace tomorrow never seems to know Don't you hate this stupid play I never really act too much like me I've got no reason left to stay So let's just roam free, me and you, baby I'm gonna tell the folks back home we took the show on the road So why can't we stay It's only been a few days There's no price I wouldn't pay Just to roam free with you baby, roam free with you baby I'm gonna tell the folks back home we took the show on the road

Bother You 04:17
I can't be chasing you when the sun goes down Please come and save me Restless in our quiet town If you say take me away I'd ask you how far So we broke our engagements, bounced the checks And left our home Hopelessly waited for some time alone But there's kinds of stress that await no matter how far When you break your own heart And let it bend the way that you shouldn't Forget to lock the doors that you open I cannot wait to bother you whenever I want to I can't outweigh the pros with you You can't be chasing me when I'm coming down I desperately waited for you to come around
I hope we can chase our dreams no matter how far So let's hope we make it Fix the fence and make a home Save our late ages for some time alone Explore anywhere we please no matter how far So don't break your own heart Or let it bend the way that you shouldn't Forget to lock the doors that you open I cannot wait to bother you whenever I want to I can't outweigh the pro's with you, and not cause I want to I cannot wait to bother you I cannot wait to bother you I cannot wait to bother you I cannot wait to bother you (wherever you want to, wherever you wanna go) I cannot wait to bother you (wherever you want to, wherever you wanna go) I cannot wait to bother you (wherever you want to, wherever you wanna go) I cannot wait to bother you (wherever you want to, wherever you wanna go)

Bar Harbor 05:18
Off my balance hit my knee hard on the coffee table Left my bruises at the door Walking to the car, take me far to the bar harbor fog in the fall with my dog Mountain climber she's an old timer but she still knows how to bark And howls in the night when we fight waits at the top of the stairs when I'm gone Crawled up the hive and felt my knee scrape, scared awake From the droning feeling of this emptiness And so hungover, just don't fall over, just get over Your heart is not breaking it's just caving in But from the peak I can see All that it means
Everywhere we've been Our hopes and dreams of what we will never be Don't it make you want to let go? The distance? If falling was your favorite season I don't get why your leaves are changing now As we drive into the distance I get this feeling that we're Too divided to find a reason I can barely understand you now But I'll listen The bed that you sleep The people you meet The memories you keep seem to wane and fade endlessly Don't it make you want to let go? The distance? If falling was your favorite season I don't get why your leaves are changing now As we drive into the distance I get this feeling that we're Too divided to find a reason I can barely understand you now But I'll listen She's climbing up the ladder To take another picture She's calling in the distance, listen Off my balance hit me knee hard Left my bruises at the door, listen If falling was your favorite season I don't get why your leaves are changing now As we drive into the distance I get this feeling that we're Too divided to find a reason I can barely understand you now As she drives into the distance Away from me and everything She's calling in the distance (she's calling in the distance) I'm starting to unravel (I'm starting to unravel) So take another picture She's calling in the distance Listen
