“Honey” 

 

You had me wrapped around your finger 

But that’s not where I wanted to stay 

You had me talking in circles 

But left me empty at the end of each day 

 

I find it funny how the flowers and the bees 

Made me think we were lovely 

Even though you were no good for me 

It’s cause you were sweet like honey

But I know what you’re made of 

And I’m not that naive 

Honey, you and I both know 

You’re not fooling me 

 

You had my heart out on the floor 

Telling me you were my natural remedy 

You had me begging you for more 

But baby boy there is no perfect cure for me 

 

Still I find it funny how the flowers and the bees 

Made me think we were lovely 

Even though you were no good for me 

It’s cause you were sweet like honey

But I know what you’re made of 

And I’m not that naive 

Honey, you and I both know 

You’re not fooling me 

 

Why am I so caught up on the sting

Mama warned me of your type 

He’s not worth fighting for 

You deserve something more 

She said you know better girl

 

Still I find it funny that you were sweet like honey 

And I find it funny that I thought we were lovely 

When learning to be alone is learning to be free

Sometimes I want someone I really just don’t need 

Cause I know what you’re made of 

And I’m not that naive 

Honey, you and I both know 

You’re not fooling me

 


“Tiptoe” 

I have been pacing across the floors 

Film photographs hang upon your door 

Tiptoe quietly to your room 

I whisper do you see me the way I see you 

 

Dandelions floating like feathers 

separate wishes casted together 

Tiptoe quietly up to me 

We tell our secrets 

In the branches of the trees

 

I sit 

I breathe 

I wait 

I think

I think of you loving me 

And us 

And he 

He is mine 

 

Covered in moss 

Covered in dirt 

Covered in petals 

I watch the world as the summertime settles 

Tiptoe quietly so it seems

I catch a glimpse of you

In every passing breeze 

 

I sit 

I breathe 

I wait 

I think

I think of you loving me 

And us 

And he 

He is mine 

 

I'll fall asleep writing letters you might keep 

I'll fall asleep with wild flowers in my dreams

I think of you loving me 

And us 

And he 

He is mine 

 

Tiptoe into a hidden place 

To be alone with you 

To be alone 

Again

 


“Ellamoon” 

They said she ran away too fast 

They did 

Stumbled her way off of the path

She hid

Covered her ears and closed her eyes 

She heard their cry 

 

And the wolves they howl 

 

One after one all in a row 

Facing the moon 

Time after time she'd go astray 

To hear them croon

Covered her ears and closed her eyes 

They brought her in 

 

And the wolves they howl 

 

Silver fur and freckled skin 

As the summer nights begin

And the wolves they howl

 


“Blind Sailors” 

It never once worked how I planned

I spent the whole day talking to a blind man

He said he'd sailed the world around

I knew his life was off the ground

 

And there I stood amongst the wicked waves

I felt the wind push me to the right place

 

Words and feelings

Words and feelings

He had only touch and taste and hearing

The blind man did yes he did

 

We spent the days out on the sea

We spent the nights talking of our first loves

About our first moments free

He took me as he wife

To sail the world without our sight

 

And there I stood amongst the wicked waves

I felt the wind push me to the right place

 

Books and theories

Books and Theories 

Up with law and down with meaning

I didn't know before

I didn't know the blind mind

 

Words and feelings

Words and feelings

We traded our sight

For a new meaning

Oh yes we did 


“New Heartbeat” 

I felt like a child 

Heard you talking 

Felt like a child 

I couldn't help but eavesdropping 

 

Called your name out 

said I don't mean to interrupt 

Called your name out 

You said it don't bother you much 

 

When I sleep I feel it when I breathe

And I see it in my dreams 

I've got a new heartbeat 

 

I lit a candle

Left it on and walked out the door 

I lit a candle 

It burned our house to the floor 

 

I said I'm sorry now all we have is turned to dust 

I'm so sorry 

You said it don't bother you much 

 

When I sleep I feel it when I breathe

And I see it in my dreams 

I've got a new heartbeat 

 

My world is spinning so fast

Will you carry me forward 

I keep slipping through every crack 

Will you carry me forward

 

Because when I sleep I feel it when I breathe 

And I see it in my dreams 

I've got a new heartbeat 

 


 

“Falling Down Again”

 

 

I am so tired of living in this haze 

weeks keep on passing 

I've lost all sense of days 

Have I fallen down again

 

Down by the river 

by myself again 

Saw my reflection 

Saw a good old friend 

Have I fallen down again

 

Found your old letters 

Doused in your perfume 

As I read them I saw images of you 

Have I fallen down again
