Spark 02:53
I wanna feel that way, I wanna feel that way Used to know the rush of love, but now I don’t know I don’t know And the sea will have me waiting for it Always and always and always I’ll hang around here forever My hands are soft, my mind is weak Someone reaches out to me, I cannot speak I cannot speak When the wave comes When the wave comes (Will I dive beneath?) When the wave comes When the wave comes When the wave comes When the wave comes (Will I rush its peak?) When the wave comes I cannot speak

Dirty Water 04:06
I don’t know from whom they’re running Born to lose the fools I summon It’s the muse for the blues of a siren Never thinking it was me all along Oooo I don’t know from whom I’m running Born to choose the ruse I summon It’s the muse for the blues of a siren Always knowing it was me all along ‘Cause I took a glance at myself in the dirty water I took a glance at myself in the dirty water Oh, think I’m gonna drown But I took a glance at myself in the dirty water I took a glance at myself Dirty water Oh, think I’m gonna drown
3.
Oh, we both know what You do to me But ask, I’ll tell a lie Even though you’re so damn endearing I can’t reveal it I don’t know why I can’t confide When you’re around me I don’t know why I should hide My fears set aside I’m so happy that you found me I don’t know why I should hide Oh, we know I won’t die You gave me a condition It’s not a sickness Even though you know what I’m concealing I can’t reveal it I don’t know why I can’t confide When you’re around me I don’t know why I should hide My fears, set aside I’m so happy that you’ve found me (still) I don’t know why I should hide
4.
So you told me you’re moving up north You might as well be moving to the stars I’ll stay here, embracing my fears Surrounded by this twisted metal forest ‘Cause I prefer a place with noise over space Where city bars lay haunted by the living Who sip away their regrets, but never forget The memories of the ones that got away But in my heart is the sweetest refrain of love And my heart, it pleads for you to stay, oh love But you leave me here, your ghost of LA As a ghost, I’m partial to play The music of those no longer stars With Jack in my veins, and Patsy on play I lay down to write you a letter But the words, they fail in my brain The needle gets stuck in the record And by now it’s become a cliché With you I never knew what to say But in my heart is the sweetest refrain of love And my heart, it pleads with my brain above Don’t leave me here, your ghost of LA One day our hearts will cease and refrain, oh love And this song will fade with the stars above All roads lead here, I’ll see you some day

Galapagos 04:27
When I wasn’t so much older Before my second teeth Over sand I would go running Turning tiny beach homes over For creatures underneath On a spool I’d watch them reeling Sunbeams licked my shoulders The water sniffed my feet When the moon came calling Galapagos Now I am a little older With children at my feet Over sand I watch them running Throwing lines out to the ocean For creatures underneath In a rush they break the ceiling Sunbeams lick our shoulders The water sniffs our feet When the moon comes calling Galapagos

I Don't Mind 04:41
He talks in his sleep He says it’s good to see me “This,” he says, “is my old lady.” He’s not talking to me We’re invited to the wedding of his ex-girlfriend She weighs less than me I don’t mind, I don’t mind, I don’t mind I don’t mind, I don’t mind, I don’t mind He says their love was fleeting Nothing but a distant memory I think he wants to show her Another side of history, what could have been, she as me I don’t mind, I don’t mind, I don’t mind I don’t mind, I don’t mind, I don’t mind Ooh-la la-la, ooh-la la-la, ooh-la la-la Ooh-la la-la, ooh-la la-la, ooh-la la-la He watches me get ready He taps a melody I don’t mind, I don’t mind, I don’t mind I don’t mind, I don’t mind, unless he hurries me, makes me fuss Then I mind! Then I mind! Then I mind! Then I mind! Then I mind! Then I mind! Better not check his cheeks before he greets her, uh-huh Better not check his teeth before he sees her, uh-huh He won’t make a fool of me He’ll be just a memory Ooh-la la-la, ooh-la la-la, ooh-la la-la Ooh-la la-la, ooh-la la-la, ooh-la la-la

Cold is the siren’s calling Echoes that shatter the peace in my mind Songs of a love once taken Over a great divide I see your portrait fading Younger and blistered, frozen in time Inside the cracks I’m crawling Towards you, love, don’t hide Water is wide (Water’s wide, I’m falling) Over a hill I’m falling Familiar shadows cling to my side Calm is the river waiting Hands are adrift behind Water is wide (Water’s wide, I’m falling)
8.
She wastes away in bed And tastes her last breath As the moon makes to rise In her eyes the sun sets Everyone goes, empty rooms We all walk alone Lonely roads, faded wounds They’ll still lead you home Sheets of lead Drape the bed in which we’ve all slept You can hear Baby cry In her arms a son wept Everyone goes, empty rooms We all walk alone Love the bramble for the bloom We are cut from both The moon’ll go down, the sun will come ‘round All of her dreams will be gone Queen of pain Queen of pain Queen of pain Queen of pain
9.
Starlight 04:01
Made a spark in darkness You thought you had something to show Didn’t know which way to go Didn’t know how long the road Laid it bare in the crucible Held out hope each night Tore down the silver walls (Blue sky!) And tried to frame life right Starlight Unseen all these years Can’t seem to stop it from reaching cold, deaf ears
