Lyrics

Pictures

If you crash a car into your best friends house,
would you be quiet as words came out of their mouth.
“stop don’t do it, i have been waiting for it,
stop i knew it would come”

If you find a guard next to your girlfriends bed,
would it be hard to sort out your spinning head.

stop don’t say that dear, that you wanted him here.
stop don’t give him the clear.

take a picture of them.
take a picture of them.

If you are afraid don’t be, i have the whole thing planned.
we’ll start in the ocean baby, and when we find the land..
we will be thankful to all of our friends,
that they didn’t leave us as we got to the end…

Take a picture of them
take a picture of them
take a picture of them
take a picture of them

If you find your faith in your parents god,
don’t be so quick to point out the flaws in it,
because you’ve been around and you’ve seen the way that things work.
but you need a compass to get around your house….


Box Of Stones

My harbor has a boat in it,
The water makes it’s way around it,
And when the sun shines down, the hills winds blow,
I miss you more.

You said I’m young and I’m yours I’m free but I’m flawed,
I’m here in your heart, I was here from the start.

The forest had a rock in it,
Roots and animals were blocked by it,
And when they turned all their bones were changed to stone,
They lost their faith.

You said I’m young and I’m yours I’m free and I’m flawed.
I’m here in your heart, I was here from the start..

Then when the rain came it settled on your skin..
Not like before when you let it all in..
To your heart… Was the only part.
From the start, you were set apart.

You said I’m young and I’m yours I’m free and I’m flawed..
I’m here in your heart, I was here from the start…


1904

All of our friends survived,
When a plane crashed in their minds.
And in 1904 I found, some real real strength in my ground…

You look at me with your old old eyes, that you used to…
Look at god in your old old way…

All of our thoughts collide,
When our hearts smash inside.
And in that place, I saw..
A cold dark diamond on the cold dark floor.

You look at me with your old old eyes,
That you used to..
Look at your god in your old old way,
Have you lost your way?


Butterfly Culture

Even though a faded glow won’t burn through all your bars,
You put out to put up.
Even while your lightning smile was shaking in the smoke,
Your head was full of hope..

Because I am a member of the butterfly culture.
Where we work and we take, we play and we pray to god…
That the girl in that dress will undress and distress you with the way that she moves.

Even now when you know how to measure up the risk,

Your still not tired of this.
Even when the pills you take turn you to a ghost,
You still spin around the most..

 

Because I am a member of the butterfly culture

where we work and we take, we play and we pray to god..
That the girl in that dress will undress and distress you with the way that she moves…


Atlas Hands

Take me to the docks there is a ship without a name there,
and it is sailing to middle of the sea,
the water there is deeper than anything you’ve ever seen,
jump right in and swim until your free.

I will remember your face
because i am still in love with that place
when the stars are the only things we share
will you be there?

Money came like rain into your hands while you were waiting,
for that cold old promise to appear.
people in the churches started singing about their hurts
you said my god is a good god and he cares.

I will remember your face
because i am still in love with that place
when the stars are the only things we share
will you be there?

I’ve got a plan, i’ve got an atlas in my hands
i’m gonna turn when i listen to the lessons i’ve learned
i’ve got a plan, i’ve got an atlas in my hands
i’m gonna turn when i listen to the lessons i’ve learned.


Stole You Away

I couldn’t believe what I saw was true.
I swam out through the waves,
And I caught it as it moved away..

I said I stole you away,
I said I stole you away,
Next time I steal you away,
Next time I steal you darling will you stay.

There was a change in the way you breathed,
I couldn’t believe you would change for me.
And if you hear the sound of shooting stars protect your heart, coz it burns back and turns back around.

I said I stole you away,
I said I stole you away,
Next time I steal you away,
Next time I see you darling will you stay..

High strung lover your soul is uncovered by believing in the things that you see.
You spent so long running but there’s nothing coming so turn around and run into me…

I said I stole you away,
I said I stole you away,
Next time I steal you away,
Next time I steal you darling will you stay.


Shine

I could live in a different place with a different house and a different name.
I could sing you your favourite song and you’d sing along yeah you’d sing along.
I could wrap you in your favourite clothes and kiss your face just so you know
that I’m the one who has got your back, now turn around and don’t be sad.

I hope you find a love that’s true so the morning light can shine on you.
I hope you find what your looking for so your heart is warm forever more.

I could fly you away with me to the furthest place you’ll ever be.

And we could smoke till the sun goes down and without a sound, without a sound..
Wed fall asleep by the big blue sea but with open eyes so we could see..
The way it shines for you and I and you know itl shine untill we fly.

I hope you find a love that’s true so the morning light can shine on you.
I hope you find what your looking for so your heart is warm forever more.

I could wait with you by the water.
I could wait with you for the winter to come.
I could stand with you with your snow boots on..

I hope you find what your looking for so your heart is warm forever.


Snowship

I was only looking for the treasure in the dark,
Not the tree’s and people in the middle of the park.
But the treasures buried under years and years of time.

He put his hand in my hand and he told me son..

When they all come looking for you where you gonna run?
Your hearts wired up to the eyes in your head and their flashing bright.

Be careful what you wish for when your young..

I signed a deal with the devil and he took my soul…
to a room with a table in the dark and cold.
I signed my name just the same as I’d done on the line before.

I was in the middle of the cliff and the sea..
with a ditch right behind me that the bitch couldn’t see.
She came right at me with her teeth and her dress …
And they both fell of.

Be careful what you wish for when your young.


Last Smoke Before The Snow Storm

This is just the start, You got a cold heart,
Don’t you want to spend more time around here..

I ran out through the garden,
Ended by your home,With broken arms and stolen charms,I knew you weren’t alone..

Don’t you love me yeah,Don’t you wanna be my sky,
If you trust me yeah,We won’t ever have to fight…

We are not departed from the place in which we started,
We just got up on the bridge so we could see it glow..

The things that we have left in, The city’s which we slept in…
The coming of the winter on the fields..

Don’t you love me yeah,Don’t you wanna be my sky,
If you trust me yeah,We won’t ever have to fight…

This is just the start,You got a cold heart,
Don’t you wanna spend more time..around here.


Don’t Go Slow

Don’t go slow,
You’ll miss all the things that you need.
Your love and heat,
Runs from your head to your feet.

I saw you first in the car on the way to the lake,
I kept you there…

If my bones we wrapped around you,
And my skin was right in front of you..

Would you smile and close your eyes,
I’m yours tonight.

If you stay I promise to keep it alight,
For all these days..

When you fell .. Like a feather from out of a plane, you’ve got time.

If my bones were wrapped around you,
If my skin was right in front of you.
Would you smile and close your eyes,
I’m yours tonight.
