Pink Light Lyrics
Sorry I was cruel, I was protecting myself
Drifting along with my swords out flying
Tattering my own sails, and I tattered yours too
Took you and wrapped you around me like a spell

Oh, how now a cold seeps in, oh
Oh, how now I cast you into the wind

Wracked by winter, I'm cupping my coals in the sand
Growing like a starlight across the garden of night off land
Bones of lonely memories surround me
Good time skeletons were kicking at the ground

Oh, how the night drags on, oh
But I think I see a pink light and the coming of dawn
Oh, how the night drags on, oh
But in the fading of the constellations, I am growing strong
In the fading of the constellations, I am growing strong
In the fading of the constellations, I am growing strong

Ocean Night Song Lyrics
A handful of dreamdust for my pirate
he can hear the Pacific singing
the sea meets delight in his saltwater eyes
icy pictures of the water are captured in his ring

the petals of night are unfolding
a mermaids map floats by on the rolling green
a Japanese fishing float
carries my soul out to the whales
and out to the deep

I wonder 'bout the herds of the sea
if they will hurt or if they will help me?

swimming with my fallen blossoms
I drink from the source above...

A handful of dreamdust for my pirate
he can hear the Pacific singing

Drink Deep Lyrics
I'll be right behind you, Josephine
I won't leave you waiting in between
And the cigarette you bummed from me is almost burning out
You suck it till your fingers burn, then you throw it to the ground

I'll be right behind you, Josephine
Even after everything we've seen seen
In this sterile room with blinding lights and faces pointing down
I only want to scream but still I just can't make a sound

Now hold my hand, I'll hold my breath
There's nothing in this world we really own
And Jesus Christ, if you tore my heart out
The only thing I'd feel is less alone

I'll be right behind you, Josephine
I won't leave you waiting in this dream
While you watch the people speaking words you can't quite comprehend
You ask me if I'd pinch you but my fingers wouldn't bend

I'll be right behind you, Josephine
Just like I was when we were seventeen
I guess that's only been a year but still it feels like 34
I don't feel like I am living in the same skin anymore

Now hold my hand, I'll hold my breath
There's nothing in this world we really own
And Jesus Christ, if you tore my heart out
The only thing I'd feel is less alone

I'll be right behind you, Josephine
Even when my soul's an amputee
And my bleeding heart is sinking in the lake inside my chest
So I grab what I can cling to and I leave behind the rest

Now hold my hand, I'll hold my breath
There's nothing in this world we really own
And Jesus Christ, if you tore my heart out
The only thing I'd feel is less alone

Now hold my hand, and take my breath
And leave behind the things you'll never own
And Jesus Christ, please tear my heart out
I wanna feel a little less alone

Wandering Kind Lyrics
A strange July
a storm came down
from the North and pulled out the salt
and it tore out the leaves from the pear tree
my canopy

In the twigs and the bugs of sow
I knew somehow i was free
I held a stone above my bones
i was shaking

In the blue stained glass church
you gathered up my heart
soldered together all the tiny, shattered parts
I said "All I can see in front of me
is the armpit of a crow"
you closed the wing
opened the door
and you ran into the summer yard

'Cause the sun's been known to shine on our wandering kind
yeah, the sun's been known to shine on our wandering kind

Clocking on her wooden board
the tattooed girl took up her swords
and plunged them down into the earth
a twinkling tide filled up her eyes
and poured out to the lawn
we made a raft out of the scraps of her skirt
and sailed 'til dawn

'Cause the sun's been known to shine on our wandering kind
yeah, the sun's been known to shine on our wandering kind
(Repeat)

Our wandering kind (fade out)

Nightingale Lyrics
Nightingale sing
Though it's blacker than the bog
Nightingale sing to me
I need to hear your song
Nightingale come
And perch upon my tree
A terrifying light's
Been flashing over me

I would not bear to rest
I would not dare to dream
Til the nightingale came
And sang a song for me
She'll sing above the blasts
And the clothing singed by fire
She'll sing above the black smoke
Rising from the funeral pyre
Her heart a field in bloom
Her heart a sacred snow
Her heart a mirror blinding
All the greedy as they go

I would not bear to rest...

I cannot help but want
To solder all the parts
Solder back together
All the shattered hearts
Nightingale come
And perch upon my tree
The terrifying night's
Been crashing over me

I could not bear to rest...

Saltbreakers Lyrics
Serpent tails and flying fish
sup up all the wishes
that you sent to the stars
Chinese dragons incandescent
mirrors in the waves
I want to put them in jars

With my-y-y saltbreakers
(ringing all the underwater, underwater, underwater bells)
saltbreakers
(look inside a space, look inside a space and you can tell)
saltbreakers
(what you need to sow, what you need to know by any means)

You will not burn me up
though I've dreamed nightly of your face
and walked the streets of my life
with your singing in my silent brain
you cannot burn me up
i'm a fallen leaf who keeps her green
and don't forget I've got my
trusty bag of oh-oh-oh

saltbreakers
(flashing in the night, crashing all around my eyes)
saltbreakers
(throwing me down turning on the fire flies)
saltbreakers
(the ebb and the flood, clearing all the channels of your heart)

bleached by the dark
oceans of clouds
rainstorms of ash
stars on the ground

all around my-y saltbreakers
(floating like a butterfly singing like a bumblebee)
saltbreakers
(dashing alright, splashing and slumbering)
saltbreakers
(mirror to the serpentine stars)

To The Country Lyrics
Don't recognise my face
(Everybody knows your game)
Feel like i'm running in place
(Everything's changed, everything's changed)
I'm gonna move to the country
(She's gonna move)
So I can see the stars
(Heavenly stars, the heavenly stars, the heavenly stars)

(She's gonna move
Heavenly stars, the heavenly stars, the heavenly stars)

I dove into the night
(Bathed in the beautiful blue light)
Sheltered inside a bat cave
(Me and my baby had a conversation)
Gonna move to the country
(She's gonna move)
So I can see the stars
(Heavenly stars, the heavenly stars, the heavenly stars)

I'm gonna move to the country
(She's gonna move)
So I can see the stars
(Heavenly stars, the heavenly stars, the heavenly stars)

Phantom Mountain Lyrics
At the top of
Phantom Mountain
I saw the turquoise
Brilliant burning sea
The sweat on my shoulders
The silvery haze
Swords of lightning
Hawks and Gulf Stream
Made me crazy, crazy

I could not tell the truth
I could not tell the truth
From the mirage, from the mirage

Yellow butterfly
On the rocky path below
Fluttering lifeless
In the shimmering glow
Of the Phantom Mountain
Took her heartache
Took her beautiful face
To a distant place

I could not tell the truth
From the mirage...

Black Butterfly Lyrics
Goodbye black butterfly
You can take those perfect wings
Into outer space
Cuz there's no place
Left in this blood
For your restless fluttering
Your sleepless ways

Black butterfly
Flutter me by
Kick a little glitter into the night
Spark up the stars
Leave alone my heart
I'm trying to be good by you alright, alright

Salt breeze Rose City sunset
The bats are swinging 'round me
Like drunken ships
Ever, evergreen boughs
Above me tower singing
Quiet stories 'bout forgiveness

Black butterfly
Flutter me by
Kick a little glitter into the night
Spark up the stars
Leave alone my heart
I'm trying to be good by you alright, alright

Wrecking Lyrics
Looting the destroyed vessels of the sea
I wondered if the waves had taken all of me
All of me back
Down to the black
Down to where the worms reign silent and green
Silent

We can do some wrecking here
'Till a little color comes into your face
We can do some wrecking here
And find something to love in this broken place
This broken place

And the king is a hand
And slaps you like a wave
And shackles you down
Bound like an anchored chain in the sand
Sends your ships to the rocks
Sends the keys to the lock of the chain on your heart
To the mouth of a serpent
And his scaly glass shards

He's holding all the cards
And waiting in the waves
With a poker face and no trail to trace
No trail to trace

We can do some wrecking here
'Till a little color comes into your face
We can do some wrecking here
And find something to love in this broken place
This broken place
