gray

lately ive been feeling gray
a little less human
a little less human
a little less human

thinking about the ways i used to like to be
maybe some day well create some harmony

thinkin bout a way to get all that i want
maybe some day you could be the one

lady come on

lately ive been feeling gray
a little less human
a little less human
a little less human

(maybe im a bit less)

 

hollow

slip back in my heart
just slip back in my-

hollow
ive been so empty with out you
id follow you to the grave if you asked me
theres something bout how you see the world
and all its been through its beauty never leaves ur side
X2

~~~
Sweet thing you know I'm following
Your eyes, your eyes
Morning never looked so bright
'fore you were mine
you were mine
This hollow heart I dug
For you to step inside
Hoping you'd stay the night
Hoping you'd treat me right
oooh you were mine

~~~
hollow
ive been so empty with out you
id follow you to the grave if you asked me
theres something bout how you see the world
and all its been through its beauty never leaves ur side
hollow
ive been so empty with out you
hollow
ive been so empty with out you

~~~
You know im poised
To take all of your pain
To me its all the same
Just tell me what to say

Youve flown far
Forgot about the past
You think youre gonna crack
think its all your fault

just slip back in my heart
just slip back in my-

 

sublime

ive been here for far too long still got too much to do
i heard these words a thousand times but nothing sticks like you
ive been here, in the moment
i saw it so clear
its all in your eyes
i wanna be yours and you wanna be mine
lets take our time, were living so sublime

Ive been breathing through the night so free
all these thoughts unwind
riding up my body to my ears
too many times

today, ive been alone, for too long too long too long too long yea
ive known your ways, for too long too long too long too long now
just slipped away ive been gone for too long too long too long too long now
so heres the place i belong belong its been long too long now

(chorus)

Finally got myself to feel a bit better
Had a bit of spare time to spend how id like
Took a second to appreciate your beauty
Still impressed at how you make me feel so sublime

(chorus)

 

polychromatic

heights
looking down from above
the sky by my fingertips the polychrome below

you wanna play it out
live
walking through a sea of colors

floating through
I wanna see you lie down

its so surreal
its so slow

Kaleidoscope
Thousands of crystals down below
Spend all my time to let it go
You wanna play it out
of my mind

~~~

I feel so right
stop me if you want it all
hold me down and beg
i still wont give you anything

spent time in a polychrome
still i got my head right
still i got my head right
i feel alright
i feel alright

~

all my thoughts tesselate for you
its been so wrong
its been so wrong

a single breath i drew from you
its been so long
its been so long

~

dont wanna be in it all
dont wanna be in it

i wanna be in it all
i wanna be in it

 

pressure

pressure
feeling your pressure
feeling your pressure

maybe we can spend the night together

~~~
ive been a madman
ive been a madman all my life
its been so obvious
maybe if you

took a look at me
spent a minute matching skin with eyes
its been a long night out

swaying on my feet
this subtle mess has got me weak
a drink or two might lighten up my sleep

if you
want me
i can stay here nightly
maybe for the weekend
we can spend it under
~~~

pressure
under pressure
under pressure

your pressure
your pressure
yea

~chorus~

pressure
feeling your pressure
feeling your pressure

maybe we can spend the night together
~~~

if you might
ive been calling your name all night
i just want you to be all mine
you seem to be my type
one more time
i just want you to spend the night
ive been waiting for you sometime

~bridge~

~chorus~

 

one of us

You said that youre one of us
Sitting around the wild fire
Sinning around with her wild side
she said that youre one of us
One of the kids from back in the day
When the world was more lonely
Be cool for her
Dont act like a fool because
Youre one of us
One of us
One of us
And dont try to offer her
The silly things you do on a day
to day basis
Because youre one of us
One of us
One of us
You said, youll never run from us
Told us that youre ours until youre dead and gone
But youre running from us now
And chasing after her wont get her heart to trust you again
Since you became the one who tore her heart apart as a friend,
You wont be one of us,
One of us, one of us.
Be cool for her
Dont act like a fool because
Youre one of us
One of us
One of us
And dont try to offer her
The silly things you do on a day
to day basis
Because youre one of us
One of us
One of us

 

oasis

So hung up
Got sun sitting in my blood
I wanna leave
To dip my feet
I spent some time
To search for a place to hide
I saw your face from underneath

Drip away
My vision flawless
As i await your full reveal
I am captivated
You reel me in

Steps from shame
I wanna see your whole body sway
I step inside as you call my name
You let me in

~~

Falling through the symphonies
I just wanna hear your voice
Hidden inbetween theirs
Melt into cacophony
Ringing in my ears is yours
Swimming through the white noise

~~

Gasp of air
A grasp of something is all i need
Maybe you
Could be the one that will decieve me
Sing your songs
Enchant my senses with your stories
Make me feel like
i will never be left lonely

Drip away
My vision flawless
As i await your full reveal
I am captivated
You reel me in

Steps from shame
I wanna see your whole body sway
I step inside as you call my name
You let me in

~~

Falling through the symphonies
I just wanna hear your voice
Hidden inbetween theirs
Melt into cacophony
Ringing in my ears is yours
Swimming through the white noise

 

homestead

spent my days
locked away from your eyes
letting myself create
a place
to getaway
away

daydreaming
years to leave my mark as I grow old
spent scheming
visions I've had
space that I belong

home always whispers in my ear
home is quite lovely i hear

feels like home
it feels like home

splash of paint
watch its ends curl and dry

as sun rays escape
all i see is my little hideaway
away

home always whispers in my ear
home is quite lovely i hear
