Track Name: Lighthouse
Lighthouse

You leapt from the ship
From your body, or what was left of it
Mind a ripped mainsail
Skin a holding cell
And I'll descend with you in the end
But it's okay, you go on alone

And I'll stay away and watch you waste away
To be a lighthouse for you
I'll stay away, and if you withstand the waves
I'm a lighthouse for you
However you wash to the shore

Heart an empty sardine can
Bobbing on the ship's wake
And I often feel like jetsam
Legs tangled in algae and plastic bags
But it's okay, you go on alone

Wind brushed the ship's bow like my hand on your brow
Wind brushed the ship's bow like my hand on your brow
But it's okay…

Wind brushed the ship's bow like my hand on your brow
Wind brushed the ship's bow like my hand on your brow
My hand on your brow…
Track Name: Best for You
Best for You

I am very patient.
I hold my tongue. My tongue is sore.
My eyes are numb.
I always try, and I will
keep on waiting for you.

My mind is clean.
I have these nice intentions I'm collecting
that I want to launch at your
happy head when you're not looking.
Me and my cannon
are waiting for you
(and loading an arsenal).

I want what's best for us,
peace and pretty things. I want,
I want what's right, what this should be.
And I'll stay right here, on guard
while the others sleep
while the others have sweet dreams of you
like I hope to, too

I am very patient. I hold my tongue. I have these nice intentions. I want what's best for you. What’s best for you?
Track Name: Gold Irises
Gold Irises

I know these hills—
I've sat in the dry grass long enough
Just scanning the horizon
a sunset burnt in my corneas.
Few people have come this way
and I admire your gold irises—
your search for love that never sets
‘cause you can't see what you've found, yet.

So let the clouds wisp white in the soft, soft blue

I'd like to show you something brighter than this—
But I'll leave it untold, in a blindfold
It's in what you feel burn your skin.
Few people have got it all
and I don't know what kind of sense it makes
To keep staring at one distant star
when you know you can't ride that far.

So let the clouds wisp white in the soft, soft blue
Track Name: Swing
Swing

Come here, come sit by my side
Come here, come stay in my life

I had a dream of a lake with a swing
And your smile beamed as you swung
Your yelps warmed my chest
Your life was a mess, so was mine

We swam, kicking our legs like a frog in a pot
It was hot
And in water that heavy a conscience can float
Like a boat, easy-now

Then you laid on a boulder lit with the sun
You were done
I climbed a rock to breathe in the view
Of what we'd become

Lifting my shoulders, I captured the sky
In my palms
But I slipped in the mud
My knee stung with love, I was fine

We hid something ahead
With what we left behind
Like a rock for the current to slide against
When you need a safe place to rest
I'll be here every time

Come here, come sit by my side
Come here, come stay in my life
And things will get better in time
