Baby Teeth 04:41
your cheap drink tricks and cigarettes keep you locked inside a cage your mother fears you, your father can't hear you, you're money, a voice on a stage i still ache from the night that you dragged me, kicking and screaming, out the door but i won't let go, no, i left my baby teeth in your drawer if i can't hold you like a lover i won't hold you at all the tide is turning on you, baby, and i feel nothing anymore if we could stay this way forever would it ever be enough? i wear your bruises on my shoulder now forever and evermore your lip got split, spill grenadine kisses, the codeine kids got you down picking fights with the devil, you know, you've got a real smart mouth driving you home from the bar and you're touching my face but i don't make a sound lost your baby teeth in the back seat, said somebody knocked them out if i can't hold you like a lover i won't hold you at all if i don't pull myself together this could be the end of it all i hear your voice inside the tv telling me to follow you home i taste your teardrops on my tongue at night and it still turns me on there are things that we will never say, but we know, we know even baby teeth will hurt you when i'm biting down if i can't hold you like a lover i won't hold you at all the tide is turning on you, baby, and i feel nothing anymore we could have stayed this way forever but it would never be enough i wear your ache inside my heart, my dear, forever and evermore

keep me caged with the animals, tasting my sorrow and teaching me lessons you found me asleep with the roses all over my body, like a confession cigarette burns on my collar, i don't think i like this life that we're living surviving on honey and milk, you don't give me much more to make sure that i'm breathing i think god's staying at the diane motel and he's smoking out on the lawn and you're crying in the parking lot again, just praying that i will come home but i've been lost for so many days on the interstate, i don't know morning from dark the kindness of strangers and the strangeness of everyone i know has just fucked with my heart you laugh like an angel with comatose love in your eyes, like a sleeping city you put me to rest in your gravestone chest, tell me i've never looked so pretty the funeral party had drinks and nobody asked why you smashed up the table your promises fold and your voice is so loud but i'm living in the light of your halo i think god's passed out in the bathtub again, cause nobody answered the door and the love that you made me fight for was never love at all the red light shines through the window and i've got a black eye for every bed that you've made the honey and milk on my fingertips was never enough to make you stay
3.
never thought that you'd teach me to walk away you said "i love you so much, baby, won't you stay?" so it goes, goes, goes, so it always goes so it goes, goes, goes, so it always goes i went down to the river to wash away the things i've done and all the names i've traced into my skin since you've been gone his hands, they feel just like yours against my arm but his voice, it sounds nothing like yours when you're telling me i'm wrong i sleep in agony, i sleep alone your hangman hands have got me cold guess you don't know, know, know, guess you'll never know now you don't know, know, know, now you'll never know so i went back to the devil and told him everything i know let him drink my blood and feed me wine in the TV glow and his hands they feel just like yours against my throat but his voice it sounds nothing like yours when you're begging me to come home i went down to the river to wash away the things i've done and all the names i've traced into my skin since you've been gone

three bullets in a wedding dress well i know he'll kill me, but i love that boy to death felt it bad when he took those pills saying "ha ha ha, we're going straight to hell" the smell of sweat and sweetness in your room yeah, i was scared, but what can you do? you turn around and tell me it's okay but my hands have still got the morphine shakes i'm alive but i don't know where i am wanna leave but i don't know if i can i'll drop out of art school spend my life in hotel bedrooms i think i saw him slow-mo crashing on the interstate think i saw him sleeping through a hurricane he's a violent man and his heart's decayed he's a liar but i just can't stay away now he's smoking out the window every morning while i get high in the bathroom always on the upswing, baby phosphenes in our starry eyes today april to our deathbed we're always on the upswing, baby he's got a new girl and i'm sure that she's alright but he still calls me late at night never meant to leave him here like this voicemail sings a fucking wreck i'm still written in his arm six years between the thing he wants nose bleeds like an afterthought baby, don't breathe out, it's all we've got live life on endless holiday you're so fun but i've got bills to pay i don't love any of these men just want to feel the most i can and he's smoking out the window every morning while i get high in the bathroom always on the upswing, baby phosphenes in our starry eyes today april to our deathbed we're always on the upswing, baby soft skin press cold hands sleep sweet sleep gentle hey, baby, are you okay? you're always on my mind coffee stains, radio static, slice my collarbones i love a boy who's made of gold i love a boy with curly hair and river eyes now he's smoking out the window every morning while i get high in the bathroom always on the upswing, baby lightning in our fingertips today i jump each time you touch me always on the upswing, baby phosphenes in our starry eyes today april to our deathbed we're always on the upswing, baby

Angela 04:44
daylight, i dream of you softly i wrote you a letter that will never reach you in montreal, the days are much colder there now you grow older there, without me on the lookout, baby won’t you look out? a car full of raccoons, i think that i’m crazy and downtown, the bar lights illuminate lost in a cityscape where i try to find you you walk like a miracle, bathing in starlight your voice burning holes in the frame i danced in the parking lot, cried in the taxi home cause i still remembered your name and oh, i’m not in love anymore but i will keep you close to me forever moonlight, i dream of you endlessly drowning in reverie, waiting for morning dim light, i’m drunk at the bar again holding a stranger’s hand, a crowd with no faces and there you are, beautiful just like the first time you reach out, i’m shaking again you’re gone in a moment, you leave me alone but i swear you were real in my hands and oh, i’m not in love anymore but i will keep you close to me forever i know these words might mean nothing now while i’m stuck in this ghost town your softness still haunts me someday i’ll find my way out of here if you don’t change your mind, my dear i’ll take you with me

you slipped suicide notes beneath my pillow as i slept and in the morning the sun didn’t come up, and the sun never came up again everything here reminds me of you and it’s getting harder to sleep the sheets on my bed still smell like your skin and it makes me sick, you make me sick, but why did you have to leave? i told you “never die”, i told you “never leave”. i didn’t want you to haunt me, baby you slept in the backyard under the tree, i didn’t want you to haunt me, baby i don’t want you anymore, i don’t want you anymore while your mother arranged flowers in the vase downstairs i undressed in your room the night was quiet but the sirens blared in the evening gloom i find traces of your footprints on the floor, i laugh at things i never would before who are you to make me new? who are you to leave? let’s drink to our eternal life and all the things that brought us closer to the sky our endless passion, our endless strife, when you pushed me to the edge but never let me fly the curtains open to the streetlight glow, i didn’t want you to haunt me, baby i wish i could sleep out in the snow, i didn’t want you to haunt me, baby i don’t want you anymore, i don’t want you anymore i don’t miss you anymore, i don’t need you anymore

Interlude 01:36
here we've got angel, he's sick in the head and he sells all my love for a hole in the wall i think maybe he'll kill me someday hold me down baby and choke out this fantasy love is a trap door that leads to a hole i am a liar and a thief and i know what i've done

i hate to see you hurt but i love to watch you cry i want to make you squirm, i want to get you high i like to watch you sleep, watch the light break through your eyes i want to crawl into your skin like a poison parasite tell me if it hurts, tell me when it hurts you won’t love it anymore cause you only love me when you’re bored tell me if it hurts, tell me when it hurts you won’t love it anymore and i’ll always hate you when you go i want to make you smile, i want to push you around i want to kiss you soft, i want to hold you down i want to live inside your lungs, i want to feel you from inside you know i’ll never stop until your skin’s all mine tell me if it hurts, tell me when it hurts you won’t love it anymore cause you only love me when you’re bored tell me if it hurts, tell me when it hurts you won’t love it anymore and i’ll always hate you when you go i want to hold your hand, i want to hold your throat i want you marked with blood and broken bones i want to eat at you the way it eats at me i want you so bad that i can’t breathe tell me if it hurts, tell me when it hurts you won’t love it anymore cause i only hurt you when i’m bored tell me if it hurts, tell me when it hurts you won’t love it anymore but you’ll always love me when i’m gone tell me if it hurts, tell me when it hurts

hey where'd you get those shadows on your face? and promise you'll put flowers on my grave you know i'm counting down the days wait our bitter hearts are made out of sand let me give you all the love that i have before it slips right through my hands my angel boy, i'd never ask for more you've got the whole wide world crying at your door baby don't bite the hand that holds you again and you don't have to run from your friends everyone's just trying to contend so many days you've spent giving all your bullets my name if you can't shake the thrill of this game i'll let you shoot me all the same it's alright you can crucify whatever you'd like but love is not a war that i'll fight i'm standing by your side tonight if i give it all, how could you ask for more? now this world's not right, they're breaking down your door why do you let them eat away at your mind? now you're waking like a dog in the night but you look like an angel in the light when did love become the thrill of the chase? i'm terrified to even touch your face how much of me can you replace?

Always You 03:44
you drive fast, you’re heading west every sharp turn is a blow to my chest we lie stagnant in your bed saying things we’ve never said drunken runaways to your left all these sirens in your head you just don’t know where to run follow streetlights to the sun smashing chairs against the wall chasing stairways just to fall breaking down the bathroom door “i won’t hurt you anymore” spread out records on the floor, falling on my knees i said i couldn’t find them and i’m sorry but i gave them all away i just don’t know what to say, losing feeling every day i’m a hypocrite, i know doing better on my own when everything’s turning, who do you love? now everything’s changing, but it’s always you
11.
Another Life 04:49
static songs on the radio back to the city where we fell in love now tell me we’re better off backroad headlight dancing queen backseat where you held my hand, now tell me it’s easier this way cause i loved you then and i love you now what does this all mean, what’s it all about? if it’s not enough we can let it die and i will see your face in another life sleepless angel, sundance kiss gentle lover, break that fist don’t leave me knocking at your door sometimes i’m alone out here sometimes i’m a sparrow or a ghost just weeping at your window and someday, by the train station my lover, he will wait for me and i will look for you cause i loved you then and i love you now don’t need to practice love, we already know if you leave me now i won’t ask you why but we can start again in another life maybe god will let me sleep or take away these dreams when you painted yourself red i wiped all your handprints clean i do it all for you cause i loved you then and i love you now what does this all mean, what’s it all about? if we leave right now, never tell them why we can start again in another life
