LYRICS

Who She Is or Who She Was

traced the tattoo of your last lover’s name

on the corner of the cage that holds your breath

while i settled in next to your gentle frame

your secluded heart disguised in silhouette


you told me you loved me

but i could taste her name on the tip of your tongue

i breathed you in, in attempt to draw her out of your lungs

the truth is you don’t have the guts to admit that i am not the one

i’ll never be who she is or who she was


woke up to your arm asleep beneath my weight

the sanguine sun was breaking through the blinds

i basked in your insincerity

for a moment disregarding every time


you told me you loved me

but i could taste her name on the tip of your tongue

i breathed you in, in attempt to draw her out of your lungs

the truth is you don’t have the guts to admit that i am not the one

i’ll never be who she is or who she was


you told me you loved me

but i could taste her name on the tip of your tongue

i breathed you in, in attempt to draw her out of your lungs

the truth is you don’t have the guts to admit that i am not the one

i’ll never be who she is or who she was

Mismatched Poetry

Reckless Unapologetic (Run)


you call me your angel

eyes burning up with fire

all you are to me is dangerous

all you are is barbwire


rough around the edges

potent as a drug

reckless unapologetic, i need to run


you say i’m the one you want most

i say you are killing time

i feel it in the hand i’m holding

i feel it in the shattered night


you say i’m the one you needed

i thought i could mend your ways

i thought i would be your reason

but i never saw you make a change


oh, rough around the edges

potent as a drug

reckless unapologetic, i need to run


you don’t know how, you don’t know how to love

you don’t know how, you don’t know how

you don’t know how, you don’t know how to love

you don’t know how, you don’t know how


(you say i’m the one you needed)

you don’t know how, you don’t know how to love

(i thought i could mend your ways)

you don’t know how, you don’t know how

(rough around the edges, potent as a drug / i thought i could be your reason but i)

you don’t know how, you don’t know how to love

(reckless unapologetic, i need to run / never saw you make a change)

you don’t know how, you don’t know how


rough around the edges

potent as a drug

reckless unapologetic, i need to run


Moon & Back


i can feel your heartbeat from across the globe

even though the map says we’re far you’re never on your own


you see constellations as i open my eyes

your love means even more to me than all the stars combined


you are the one, you are the one


to the moon & back

that is all we have

to the moon & back

don’t forget me


i can hear you whisper “i love you” across the sea

even though the waves say we’re far you’re always a part of me


i see you in the sunrise in every pastel shade

kaleidoscope of all that you are please don’t fade away


you are the one, you are the one


to the moon & back

that is all we have

to the moon & back

don’t forget me


you (you are the one)

are the one, you are the one


to the moon & back

that is all we have

to the moon & back

don’t forget me


to the moon & back

no matter the map

to the moon & back

don’t forget me




Plans


you don’t know what love means, bit your heart out of your chest

bloodied your teeth, tasting victory in the mess

camouflaged in bravery that was clearly insincere

you were treading concrete, could not escape the fear


a lightning bolt so deadly but i only saw the light

determined to ignore the consequences of your strikes

i romanticized our cloudy skies a million times or more

welcomed you into my head when i should’ve slammed the door


i put my trust in something that you’re not, something that i need, something that i want

i always thought you could be a better man but it turns out that was never in your, never in your plans


skipped all of my secrets like stones across a lake

slipped under my skin and bones, infested in my brain

i held you to a promise you never said you’d keep

leaving me the captain of a vessel bound to sink


i put my trust in something that you’re not, something that i need, something that i want

i always thought you could be a better man but it turns out that was never in your, never in your plans


is it love when you’re feeling compromised

this solemn swear between us feels just like our demise

you flipped my dreams away from me like a coin

everything i thought i knew with you was just a ploy


i put my trust in something that you’re not, something that i need, something that i want

i always thought you could be a better man but it turns out that was never in your, never in your plans











Lullaby (feat. Corey Kilgannon)


you color in my heart

you hold me till it shines

make me believe our love will be safe through every night


you illuminate the kaleidoscope

turning in the prism of all my highest hopes


see i’ve got a feeling i caught you stealing my treasure of a heart

oh i’ve seemed to notice you keep me close and won’t let us drift too far


words of mismatched poetry falling from your lips

promise me you’ll stay a while, maybe i’ll get used to this


see i’ve got a feeling i caught you stealing my treasure of a heart

oh i’ve seemed to notice you keep me close and won’t let us drift too far


my lullaby, you love me right, my lullaby, i can’t get you off my mind


you’re my lullaby, you’re my lullaby























Darling (Meant to Be)


the night was trying

the stars were free

we sat in silence, afraid of what we’d speak


trapped in the corners of lovelorn minds

we knew it was over, i couldn’t look you in the eyes


to you oh i write all i wish i’d say aloud to you oh i try but my lips begin to shake


am i your one? am i your dream? am i your darling? is it meant to be? is it meant to be?


the night was fragile

the sky was made of glass

it began to shatter, our love began to match


used to be easy

i made a home within your beauty

now my heart it roams


to you oh i write all i wish i’d say aloud to you oh i try but my lips begin to shake


am i your one? am i your dream? am i your darling? is it meant to be? is it meant to be?


to you oh i write all i wish i’d say aloud to you oh i try but my lips begin to shake


to you oh i write the words you dare to miss

the ones you gently interrupt with your melancholy kiss


am i your one? am i your dream? am i your darling? is it meant to be? is it meant to be?

is it meant to be?

The Hourglass

The Hourglass


i can’t get you out of my mind

even after all this time

I can’t make it through the night

my nightmares come in black & white


on my soul like a tattoo

you were my nightmare’s muse

wide awake and all confused

i just don’t know what to do


how can i let you go, if you’re tethered to my mind           

how can i let you go, if i’m held captive by time

i’m stuck in the past, caught up in what we had

i’m locked in the tower of the hourglass, the hourglass


you always seem to be the star

of the worries of my troubled heart

you’re the reason for my scars

stole my serenity, you tore me apart


how can i let you go, if you’re tethered to my mind              

how can i let you go, if i’m held captive by time

i’m stuck in the past, caught up in what we had

i’m locked in the tower of the hourglass, the hourglass


second by second

minute by minute

time has it’s hold on me

second by second

minute by minute

i find it hard to breathe


how can i let you go, if you’re tethered to my mind              

how can i let you go, if i’m held captive by time

i’m stuck in the past, caught up in what we had

i’m locked in the tower of the hourglass, the hourglass


how can i let you go, if you’re tethered to my mind              

how can i let you go, if i’m held captive by time

i’m stuck in the past, caught up in what we had

i’m locked in the tower of the hourglass, the hourglass

Yours


running free through the daylight,

chasing dreams in the sunlight,

everything feels so right,

just being next to you


we are inseparable, unpredictable, invincible.

we are undefeatable.

our love is incomparable


you make me laugh while i sing,

climb into my wildest dreams,

distract me from the mighty storms,

protect me from the wicked war,

this is how i am sure, you are mine, and i am yours


we stay up talking until midnight,

getting lost in the moonlight,

you make my heart ignite,

just being next to you


we’ve got that fairytale love,

that you,

see on the screen,

our love is a palace,

you’re the king to my queen


you make me laugh while i sing,

climb into my wildest dreams,

distract me from the mighty storms,

protect me from the wicked war,

this is how i am sure, you are mine


you make me laugh while i sing,

climb into my wildest dreams,

distract me from the mighty storms,

protect me from the wicked war,

this is how i am sure, you are mine, and i am yours, & i am yours, & i am yours

Without You


i miss the way you held me tight,        

phone calls 2am every night,

telling secrets,

looking at the stars,           

playing songs on my old guitar


i can’t help thinking,    

this is how it ought to be,         

i loved you & you loved me

wish i could go back to before things went wrong    

back to you, where i belong so


let’s start over, let’s be strangers once again,                

nice to meet you, could I have a second chance,       

i promise to never let you down,             

just know i can’t live, without you around


i miss driving around town with nowhere to go,            

screaming along to the songs on the radio,

how you would get me through all the bad days,              

you always knew the right things to say


i miss slow dancing to all our favorite songs,   

& how our voices harmonized along,

your laugh, the way you smiled, boy it’s really been a while

       

i can’t help thinking,  

this is how it ought to be,          

i loved you & you loved me

wish i could go back to before things went wrong         

back to you, where i belong so


let’s start over, let’s be strangers once again,                          

nice to meet you, could i have a second chance,                

i promise to never let you down,                   

just know i can’t live, without you around

                       

let’s go back to the days, before you walked away.

this is all i want, i hope and pray


let’s start over, let’s be strangers once again,                      

nice to meet you, could i have a second chance,                

i promise to never let you down, just know i can’t live


let’s start over, let’s be strangers once again,                       

nice to meet you, could i have a second chance,

i promise to never let you down,                         

just know i can’t live, without you around

                                        






Cursive Line


i’m lost in his mystery

i’m caught up in his smile

he is like a daydream

yet his reality gives me butterflies


his eyes are like the ocean

hypnotize me with their potion

he’s got me hoping

that one day i will have his devotion


but he’s not mine

oh he’s a cursive line and i am plain


oh if his heart is made of gold

does he need another soul to keep him smiling

oh oh you gotta let me know

because i could be the one to keep him shining, shining


his words are bright as starlight

they guide me through the darkest nights

his heart makes the sun dance

to the melody of its romance


but he’s not mine

oh he’s a cursive line and i am plain


oh if his heart is made of gold

does he need another soul to keep him smiling

oh oh you gotta let me know

because i could be the one to keep him shining


oh if his heart is made of gold

does he need another soul to keep him smiling

oh oh you gotta let me know

because i could be the one to keep him shining







Red Eye


quarter of 2 is always the hardest

heartache comes with the stardust

baby all i want is

to be in your arms


quarter of 2 can’t see through the darkness

all i know is my heart is

falling apart in every way

oh i wish i could’ve stayed


i miss your voice

i only hear it through the telephone

I miss standing by your side

now i’m standing on my own


i know that you know

that i’d come back if i could

i know that you know

that i should

say


i’ll catch the red eye

i’ll see you at dawn

i’ve been away

for too long

just close your eyes

rest well my dear

dawn is approaching

and soon i’ll be here


i’m all alone watching the sunset

you’re on my mind i can’t forget

your silhouette

against the tie-dye sky


it makes me realize

that i’ve got to go

leave this new life behind

return to what i know


i know that you know

that i’d come back if i could

i know that you know

that i should say


i’ll catch the red eye

i’ll see you at dawn

i’ve been away

for too long

just close your eyes

rest well my dear

dawn is approaching

and soon i’ll be here


so i call you up

and i book my flight

oh i’m catching the red eye tonight

i’ll take a leap

i’ll makes things right

oh oh oh oh oh oh


see i caught the red eye

now it’s dawn

i’m back

in your arms after so long

you look in my eyes

as they shed a tear

quarter of 6

i’m finally here


caught the red eye

now it’s dawn

i’m back

in your arms after so long

you look in my eyes

as they shed a tear

quarter of 6

i’m finally here
