Descent 01:53
i'm so scared of airports and being alone

Virgin 04:19
oh, my darling, what a mess you've made of me the bathtub's full of cherry coke, there's blood between my knees oh, my darling, what a night i chose to fall i want to be a little girl, i want to have it all it doesn't mean a thing to me it doesn't make me yours it doesn't make me less of who i used to be don't mistake, it didn't mean a thing to me i will not be yours i will not be less than who i used to be it doesn't mean a thing to me you can feel the lightning in the air come home and find me sleeping on the stairs you hold my skin so softly, press into my bones i am the one who found you here when you were alone it doesn't mean a thing to me it doesn't make me yours it doesn't make me less of who i used to be oh my god, i didn't even feel a thing it didn't even hurt it didn't get me closer to the god i want to know

Raphael 05:10
please don't try to change my mind, your struggling makes me weak they're taking you away from me, you cannot even speak now my body feels so empty and so cold they told me "kill what's killing you", but now i'm all alone i fell in love with a promise, a shell of what you could be in another life, i will hold you raphael, don't you cry for me i will sing to you someday the world will hold my trial for your sins never meant to see the sky, never meant to live god, please promise me that i won't go to hell they broke into my fragile heart, they've taken raphael in another time, in another life maybe i could love you, raphael there will be no funeral for a boy that no one ever knew but i'll still kiss your coffin, raphael

Stranger 03:32
something's got my head repeating melodies something kept me slipping into fever dreams of writing on the mirror that i cannot read i woke up to find a stranger sleeping next to me i know it hurts, i know you try you know i'd rather live a lie than let you down you can come around any time you want and i'll be here if somebody hurts you, if somebody tries just give me their name, baby, i wanna fight for you but you won't fight for me something's got you straying into darker seas something's got you wandering away from me love notes on your palms, darling, where have you been? i fell asleep and saw a stranger pressed against your skin wake me up and take me home if you won't hold me then i wanna go you say i'm crazy when you know i'm right it's what's keeping you up all night it's in her eyes, it's in my chest beating so fucking hard, i feel like i'm gonna die so i want to know, if she's got your body who's got your soul?

Nichole 04:01
down in pennsylvania, tired smiles and broken cars maybe i could meet you there, nichole drowning in my empathy, the wicked eyes i could not see stared and stared and shattered all my bones and you said "don't forget the reason you are here your heart could fuel the moonlight with its fever leave all that you've known down by the water you're bruised but you're not dying rest your burning eyes you're only just a child put away your knives" you rose from childhood suffering, an ache inside too deep to reach but close enough for all the world to feed the stars were never quite aligned, god was never on your side but you became a precious burning light don't let any earthly force defeat you i won't forget the reasons that i need you spoke so soft and loved just like a mother i won't let you down i'll hold my head up high i'll be the gun and i'll be the one who points it to the sky down in pennsylvania, sinking ships and baby shoes and a love so strong it burns the city down if i escape what i've been told, if i make it through this year alone maybe i could meet you there, nichole

Settle Down 03:33
settle down, won't you take it easy on me? turn off the radio let's take the long way home your heart of gold resides in the lines around your eyes our friends all moved away and left us behind baby, don't you turn away, i need you on my side settle down, don't you worry, it's alright i'd rather set myself on fire than watch you leave cause when you walk away, i feel like i can't breathe this feeling's bone deep and it aches like a cavity oh, i can't settle down when you're not with me
7.
Nathan 05:05
you keep a little piece of the past beneath your skin spider legs crawling through your cold bloodstream baby's got a slow pulse, he's hearing static sounds again he changes like the autumn trees, shiver shaking limbs you take their words for gospel and leave me in the rain nathan, don't make me lose my breath again you built yourself a bed from ashes and string nathan, don't fill up your lungs with fire again there's summer in your hazy eyes though the winter steals the air it feels like i've loved you my whole life cause i see you everywhere in dreams where i cannot move, i can only stand and stare your milky skin, my piano hands putting flowers in your hair i'll drown these nightmares in apathy til i believe that i'm okay nathan, do you feel powerful when you're pushing me away? i'll sleep with open windows in case you come back for me someday nathan keeps me on the run, begging him to stay nathan holds me to his chest, begging me to stay
8.
cigarettes and champagne you break through the outside and look right into me now nothing feels the same i guess i should have learned this long ago but i always kept my eyes on the ground this world just got too loud we've got friends, we've got places to go but i can't take my eyes off of you we've got time, we could take this slow but i can't keep my hands off of you no one knows me quite the way you do cigarettes and champagne i want to sleep beside you at the end of the world when there's no one left to get in our way your cold hand clings to mine, walking home and your eyelashes catch the snow you know i love you so the freckles on your shoulders and this burning in my eyes when i just can't find the right words to say all these blurry eyed mornings and confessions in the night i love the way you keep me awake we've got friends, we've got places to go but i can't take my eyes off of you we've got time, we could take this slow but i can't keep my hands off of you no one knows me quite the way you do no one loves me quite the way you do

Jupiter 04:31
overwhelming ecstasy our bodies move in harmony always waking breathlessly from dreams that leave me wanting more of you these silly games we play stupid ways to make you stay my heart's split open on display and i can't wait another day to touch your face, to hold you i just need you by my side tonight overwhelming ecstasy your name repeated endlessly we'll eat ice cream by the movie screens and make out in the backseat of your car ripped shirts and perfect throws til my body overflows in the summer afterglow i love you more than you will ever know but it's alright i'll just keep it all inside tonight we can leave right now, never come back home you're all i need forget everything that we used to be take me to another place, fly me up to jupiter we can run away but i'll always feel at home with you overwhelming ecstasy your skin is like a melody your heartbeat brings me to my knees just begging for a chance to simply taste the moonlight on your lips the fever sings, the honey drips curtains closed, the record skips no one has ever loved like this i'm certain, it must be holy to feel something so pure overwhelming ecstasy twisted in your entropy clinging to you desperately and i can taste the sweetness of your breath the stars are screaming loud the world outside is breaking down burning cities, whispered vows and i can feel you all around me nothing feels the same nothing feels quite like you we can leave right now, never come back home you're all i need forget everything that we used to be take me to another place, fly me up to jupiter we can run away but i'll always feel at home with you and if you run, i'm right behind you, we'll make it out nothing left between us but light and sound take me into outer space, fly me up to jupiter i'm yours forever and i'll always be at home with you
