Track Name: No Song For You
i can't even think
i don't know anything now
not even how i came to

i can't even sing
i don't have any voice now
not even when i want to

i can't even think
i don't know anything now
not even how i came to

open myself to the absence of you
and hold onto what could never be true

i can't even feel
i don't hurt anywhere now
not even where i need to

i can't even sing
i don't have any voice now
not even when i have to

i can't even breathe
i don't have any strength now
not even when i try to

comfort myself with the absence of you
dreaming about what will never come true
as though nothing was meant to be
an there's no one who can help me through

i can't even speak
i don't have any words now
not even when i need to

i can't even breathe
i don't have any strength now
not even when i try to

release myself from the absence of you
and move beyond what has never been true
fading away like melodies
when there's no one to sing this song for you
Track Name: In Some Fictional Place
in some fictional place
i already know you
can't explain falling
and how i still do

in some fictional place
i already love you
can't explain falling
and why i still do
just let me go

in some fictional place
i already miss you
don't delay falling
and when i kiss you
don't let me go
Track Name: Colder
you are tickling my brain
tiptoeing around
feather in your fingers

i look forward to seeing you
as i would the arrival of a
la la la la la la la la la la la la la la
la la la la-la la la la la la la la la-la la la la

funny how we just talked
about how it's always there
had to close my eyes to
see it coming out of nowhere

i hold your arm to steady myself
the road is slick
i kiss your shirted shoulder
did i tell you that part?
i left my coat in my sky blue car
and it seems to be getting...

it's like talking to myself sometimes
when you're on the line
it's almost enough to make believe
i knew you in a past
la la la la la la la la la la la la la la
la la la la-la la la la la la la la la-la la la la



funny how we just talked
about how it's always there
had to fall asleep to wake myself
except i'm not sure where

i hold your arm to steady myself
the road is slick
i kiss your shirted shoulder
why didn't i tell you that part?
i left my coat in my sky blue car
and i think it's getting colder
Track Name: Last Summer
as recently as last summer
i felt fine
nothing but time
losing my mind
and i wait, but now: the seasonless glow
and there's nowhere to go
blowing the grass that's lost all its green
and the trees hide their shade

as recently as last summer
i felt fine
nothing but time
still in my prime
and i wait, but now: the winter will slow
and there's nothing to show
savor the morning cold
no longer old
still goodbye
Track Name: Little Left
there is little left to define us
to remind us anymore

there is little left to incite us
to ignite us anymore

there is little left to invite us
to delight us anymore

there is little left to excite us
what's inside us anymore
Track Name: Touching Bruises
maybe the rain washed it away
maybe i never wrote it in the first place what you meant to me
now this isn't for me: dried up flowers, scattered on the windowsill and blowing away

nothing is missing
i won't missed
i won't be mistaken for someone who mattered to you
i don't overlap
and i don't cry
and i don't bleed into the other parts of you

maybe the sun burned it away
maybe these flowers would have dried up anyway
there's no way to know

believing all unspoken untruths
while making all the right deductions
i've ended up where
i've ended here: deluded beyond all possible repair

touching bruises
chasing ghosts

will you tell me a story?
yes: there was this man, who thought he loved you…
Track Name: What It Was
what it was
it wasn't quite
too fast
too slow
what could have been a minute
went away
construct a myth
of trust
through time
and suffer, dearly, emptiness
in the space
it takes to live through
