Track Name: stay.
turn it back again
just like a tape deck
my friend

eyelids sore with sleep
i said, "i need everything"

so just stay
just stay

i was foolish then
running through the forest we met
i was selfish then
you were grabbing hold of both of my hands

just to stay
just to stay
Track Name: field note
they said it couldn't happen any other way
they said that you had gone crazy
i wasn't home then
i saw it all before it happened

i couldn't find any space for you
he saw the line, he saw the line
i couldn't find any space for us
now it's time

darling, i said
Track Name: paper-thin light
one day my soul will float up right past the sun
i count raindrops on the leaves
i wanted you to see the wonder i could think up

it's just the way that it goes sometimes
it's just the way it goes sometimes

i can't breathe without you
i want to hear your voice in the night whispering, "i can't get through these paper thin lights without you by my side"

it's just the way that it goes
so long ago

bright light on my forehead,
i can see right through this
