Track Name: Original Sin
Waiting for the night to crawl into your heart
a party in a warehouse loft to keep you calm
but this is not the way it always used to seem
and this isn't original for you and me

This is an original sin

Lying in our beds at night we start to dream
eyes moving like flashlights under sheets
up until the morning hours we are set free
there's nothing across from us but what we see

This is an original sin
Track Name: Kites
My wings are like his
all my words on his lips

And my brain is on edge
I'm next to the bed
where I saw you

My weight is like his
we both lost what we kissed

and my hate burns like this
in my hands in his fist

and my love is so quick
like the legs of my kids

All the worlds I could lift
only fit
where I saw you

Pile lover upon lover
'til we're covered with skin

There's nothing to discover
from the thunder and lightning

There's no way to recover
this is love not loving

But now we are all each other
I was a brother when i saw you
Track Name: Verona
You call me all the right words but the right words sound so wrong
you say that I am changing I guess I will before too long
will you give me a way out or a past to live down
either way it couldn't be worse than it is now

I'm watching while a wild dog makes ripples round and round
is every single whisper a life that we should know by now or is it just a sound
something keeps a river from sinking into the ground
was I ever any different
it's the simplest ones, the simplest ones

White lies in the night
if I could be yours then you could be mine
as long as it rhymes
it's all that i'll ever need
I hear white lies in the night
if I could be yours then you could be mine
we keep what we hide
and you told such simple lies

Now that we are free Verona, won't you keep me out
drive me to the city where every building shouts
I want to hear some people i want to leave the windows down
I never will believe you, you should know why by now

It is the simplest things we want
but we can never see enough
it's the simplest ones, the simplest ones

White lies in the night
if I could be yours then you could be mine
as long as it rhymes
it's all that i'll ever need
I hear white lies in the night
if I could be yours then you could be mine
we keep what we hide
and you told such simple lies
Track Name: Paris
That look will take me right to the ground
and I'll be laughing the whole way down
with thunder beneath us all I want to feel is your arms
I know I'm leaving but we all leave no matter what

If time is a mouth to feed
every hour is ice in our fingers' heat
so give your time to me
if it changes you I will never see
old lovers fall like leaves
but just if you let them

The roofs of the city like an ocean spread for miles
I swear I saw my whole life flicker in a window light
you think you know what I'm thinking but you don't know why I need you tonight
you say you feel nothing hoping nothing's all I'll leave behind

If time is a mouth to feed
every hour is ice in our fingers' heat
so give your time to me
if it changes you I will never see
old lovers fall like leaves
I hear them beneath your feet
but nothing is endless
Track Name: Heaven Waits
White waves that crash before us
call out some siren’s chorus
still heaven waits for no one here

Carved out a perfect circle
right where the memory left you
still heaven waits for no one here

Streetlights cascade in ribbons
up to the moon
they're waiting to see you
beneath the weeping willow
playing its tune
it howls through you

Lightning’s an orphaned dream who’s
trying to find a reason
still heaven waits for no one here

Streetlights cascade in ribbons
up to the moon
they're waiting to see you
beneath the weeping willow
playing its tune
it howls through you

I was awake for it all
I was awake for it all
the heart of a child is beating
and it goes hoooo
Track Name: Night Winds
A photograph and a whisper
will find me in the night
like the sound of sad dogs
wishing they could cry

It's somehting only we know
underneath street lights
shadows make things easy
so i made you mine

This would be so simple
if you were fast asleep
and all the bottles you throw
they would be lost at sea

And you could take my letters
and rearrange the words
you could read them backwards
Until you like what you heard

If I could know what they know
then we could sell this gold
and I could wear your halo
when the nights grow cold

And you could wish my child's eyes
would turn to clouds and part
and I could wish that I lied
when I said I lost your heart

So long the days
that melt away
so loud the words
you could not say

If only last December
had stayed beneath the snow
I hear your muffled laughter
after the curtains close

To the sound of night winds
in the dark you grope
trying to find some likeness
under my wrinkled clothes

So long the days
that melt away
so loud the words
you could not say
