Niki Sorogas I haven't heard such graceful notes of immortality in the burning voice of lyrical pain, thirst, rejoice and sacrifice for love's sake in a long time..but all I can think of is raising my glass to love again.... Favorite track: For My Love.

Track Name: Skyrocket
Out in the driveway
A lit skyrocket
Here comes trouble again

Dizzy ideas
Could be the weather
Low clouds are coming in

You walk right through
Taking over my imagination

A Catherine wheel
A color bomb
Can I kiss you now?

Walking barefoot
In the wet grass
A bright sound spinning out

You walk right through
Taking over my imagination

So who are you, who are you
Who are you this time?
Track Name: First Love
Summer comes
And we hang out in the street
I taste the thunder in the breeze
I hear you mispronounce my name
And now you want to walk me home
I feel unsteady on my feet
Oh, I hope you feel the same

My first love
You were the beating of wings
You took me so high up
I couldn't see a thing

Now the sky
Glows a lonely blue
And I’m learning how to wait
I know but just don’t want to say
That you’re not coming back
Now that everything is you
Here’s to hoping anyway

My first love
You were the beating of wings
You took me so high up
I couldn't see a thing

Now you're gone
The ache was planted in my heart
It blooms into my blood
It makes my body weak
But it was always in me
Singing in the dark
You just set it free

My first love
You were the beating of wings
Track Name: Arrow Breaks Skin
The cold rushes in
Arrow breaks skin
And it's too late to start anew

Nowhere to hide
No great divide
Now it's part of you

And all those accidental moments
That you bared your soul
Keeping alone the flesh and the bone
When you could've turned to gold

Images fade
The one note unplayed
Your bluest song unsung

Caught in midair
And you’re just standing there
Knowing that this is the one

And all those accidental
Moments of beauty and grace
And the fury of love, and the hope it's born of
They're scattered all over the place

And then it’s real and one by one
Colors appear around the sun
Track Name: Something to Prove You Right
A crowd of faces
Has nothing on the thought
Of falling down
Falling down

Little star
Reflected on the water
Thinking she’ll drown
Thinking she’ll drown

Everywhere you look you find
Something to prove you right

You turn away
Because a counterfeit heart
Can never be true
Never be true

When skies are grey
It darkens what is bright
Inside of you
Inside of you

Everywhere you look you find
Something to prove you right
Track Name: Night Planes
A lonely stretch of land on every side
We are caged in
By nothing at all

Right from the beginning
It was waiting to happen
I think I saw it in your eyes

Night planes touch down so soundlessly
In the distance
Home at last

This is all for the better
Just imagine the future
We’ll be happy when we’re free

Right from the beginning
It was waiting to happen
You must’ve seen it in me
Track Name: Little Abyss
I can’t make sense of this
Could’ve sworn I was almost there
Now I’m back in my little abyss
I could be anywhere

So we are just grains of sand
That shift on the ocean floor
So we are a marching band
Don’t know what we’re marching for

Children pretend to fly
I pretend I’m brave enough
To give it just one more try
Betting it all on love

I guess I can see the grace
Even if there’s no point at all
In this treacherous, heavenly place
Riding the rise and fall
Track Name: Magical Thinking
This bed is so cold
And on the ceiling
Angelic faces wear halos
Of fluorescent light

These hours are nothing
But hands that cast us
Like skipping stones
Into the stillness of night

Was there something you wanted to say

This fortress of hope
This magical thinking
Won’t keep us safe
From the storm

Now the rain
Thinks it's a river
And I'm sailing down
This highway alone

Was there something you wanted to say?

An empty room
Flooded with light
Sudden and bright
Like the sun in a mirror

Nothing’s the same
But nothing’s changed
We’re still just making it up
Down here

Was there something you wanted to say?
Track Name: Walking Dream
One foot in front of the other
You were my walking dream
Blurred white like the light on our high school stage
Thin lipped, eyes sharp as a butterfly blade

Warm drumming
Heart in a rib cage
Warm drumming

I think you always knew you'd lose your way

Closer to home than you ever thought
Long gone, walking dream
You fall into yourself again
You fall into the wind
Track Name: For My Love
I walk through hell for my love
Because my love is buried in flames
I bring him cold pomegranates
The color of the blood that I bleed in his name

And I hear his voice
And he calls me near

I walk through hell for my love
Because my love, he was taken down
I tell him sweet white lies
Because they crushed the beauty we found

And I hear his voice
And he calls me near

I walk through hell for my love
Who else will stand by his side?
It’s hard to tell if this is love
My heart is a chamber of fire

And I hear his voice
And he calls me near
And he tells me things
Only I can hear

I walk through hell for my love
Because my love is waiting for me
He was torn from the blue sky
And he fell so gracefully
Track Name: Something to Prove You Right (Synth Reprise)
A crowd of faces
Has nothing on the thought
Of falling down
Falling down

Little star
Reflected on the water
Thinking she’ll drown
Thinking she’ll drown

Everywhere you look you find
Something to prove you right

You turn away
Because a counterfeit heart
Can never be true
Never be true

When skies are grey
It darkens what is bright
Inside of you
Inside of you

Everywhere you look you find
Something to prove you right
