Track Name: Blue Electricity
Love when you whisper
Blue electricity.
Know we can feel it.
Feel it when you’re looking right at me.

This night will be perfect.
Perfect though you feel so out of reach.
So hard to not want you.
Pulse is racing fast as I breathe deep.

Love when you whisper (whisper words into me)
Blue electricity (whisper words into me)
Know we can feel it (whisper words into me)
Feel it when you’re looking right at me

Electric sensation. (Feeling like I’m melting)
Controlling, time slowing. (It’s all so overwhelming)
Come closer, next to me.
One more time, (Diving off the deep end)
I will go,
Escape to the real world.
Feel so good next to you. (It’s just another weekend)
Releasing emotions, (I can only stand here)
Evading the motions,
Close my eyes and just breathe. (Loving that you are near)
Track Name: Out the Window
Lucent exhale.
Light is fading, breeze picks up.
Fractals appear, we’re all the same just cosmic dust
Cosmic dust, cosmic dust.

Gripping tightly,
Holding close this coffee cup.
Peeling paint off buildings aging these pipes rust
These pipes rust, these pipes rust.

Never gonna be another way
Never gonna be another way to say it.

Pallet of dry paint is all I am but you’re
Raining on my colors again.

Never gonna be another way
Never gonna be another way to say it.

Treading lightly, twigs snap smell of kerosene.
Incandescent, crystal clear a living dream.
Track Name: Ribbons
Been escaping shadows.
Running fast from my past.
But I want you to know
Though it’s still swimming inside my head.
Its only ribbons of what I am.

I fear all the spiders,
Swallow them in my sleep.
I close all the windows
But they’re still crawling after me.
Its only ribbons of what I am.

Addicted to comfort,
But its adventure I want.
Will I always wonder
or dive into this world alone?
Its only ribbons of what I am.
Track Name: Something 'Bout the Way
Something to be said about the way I’ve been feeling lately.
Track Name: July
It was pitch black.
There were just bursts of light.
Fourth of July
Such a perfect night.

There was dew on the grass
So our clothes got damp.
I was wrapped up in you
For an hour or two.
I lost track of the time.

Like a balloon floating in the sky
I was going up fast, going up aimlessly higher.
I never knew but I always tried.
It happened so fast, it was such a quick drive.
But now we don’t care.
Tell me you want me for one more night.
I promise to say all the things on my mind, but now it’s too late.
And now we don’t care.
And now we don’t care.
