Track Name: Thaw Draft
doot doot doo
doot doot doo
aah aah
Track Name: Rain
Dull rain in late July
We tried our best to stay inside
But the cold wet fingers on your bones so dry
Convinced you not to run or hide

And the days got shorter and the seasons changed
I’m in stranger places learning strangers’ names
But the strangest feeling is the guilty pain
When I’m afraid I’ve forgotten your face

So we drive on the highways
With both of our eyes closed
And keep all the lights on
While our lovers disrobe
Because we love to be scared
By the things that we don’t know
And not the ones you love

Darling why
Did I ever have to
Say goodbye
To your voice your scent those
Irish eyes
But there was never enough time

So we find ourselves as tall as clouds
When rain itself is plagued with doubt
To start or stop or end the drought
And put the fire out

Like that autumn afternoon in an empty house
When you first kissed me on the mouth
You said that we had figured out
The secret of electric love

Cause it flows from your fingers
like songs from the radio
In silent transmissions
Delivered in stereo
To a metal receiver
That sleeps deep in my bones
And screams for you today

Darling I never wanted to have to
Say goodbye
To your singing voice and those
Irish eyes
Now I’m not sure if I’m alive

You say leave I say ok

She’s three sheets to the wind
And I think that she means it
Her words might be slurred
But her voice is so clean
It’s like rain in your bones
Like a home you could live in
Says “honey I don’t wanna leave alone”

Like a dream
Now she’s calling me to bed again
Sounds so sweet
And I’m not sure how this is gonna end
Sound a sleep
But I’m quite content that it’s happening
Next to me
Track Name: Gold Stars (free download)
dusty piano plays a tune
notes like skipping stones
i'll change the rules for you

like a fish and a lightbulb
tied to a string
the sun's in the ocean
trying to swim
you'll be the waters you wade through
but i'll always be thirteen years old
Track Name: Stream Dream
ankles just like apple cores
tell my time's a marrow bore
sleep alone during the day
our dreams can carry us away

white wakefulness can clock us in
while dizzy dripping streams will spin

glass on, stumble sickly down the streets
like trickle rain, hold back the repeats

white wakefulness will wash us in
while dizzy drippin dreams will end
like hopes you'd know my head's absurd
i'll probably never say a word
