Skyrocket 04:15
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?

First Love 02:25
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
3.
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
4.
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
5.
Night Planes 02:37
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
6.
Little Abyss 03:48
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
7.
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?
8.
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
9.
For My Love 02:44
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
10.
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
