Pedestal 04:03
Some people have got their theories That the heart is supposed to be a house for the soul Well I’ve got my fair share of queries When will my love find its way back home? Philosophy keeps me going round in circles Just like how I chase you like I chase my tail The world ain’t gonna stop spinning ‘cos I ain’t got you How did you get to the top of the hill? So come on down! Standing on that pedestal babe Don’t you wanna get together? So come on down!
 Swinging like a pendulum hey Gotta let me know where this is going sooner or later I found myself losing the art of believing Some place somewhere down along the line You came and went and left me here so alone But somehow I’ve never felt so alive Here I am now messy in my misery The way you drop me like a bomb then you come hit me so hard with your cold technique I often wonder how you get to play with gravity But don’t you get it babe All I really want to know is what you really need So come on down! Standing on that pedestal babe Don’t you wanna get together? So come on down! 
Swinging like a pendulum hey Gotta let me know where this is going sooner or later

Throwing smoke Cast the first stone I stayed up While you left home How do I know If this is worth keeping Should I measure the tears we’ve cried Against the arc of conversation? One last kiss One more cigarette Abandon me A dead soldier in your bed Where did you go Were you shown some revelation? Should I remember the scene of the crime Or lose it in translation? You were my everything/I tell myself that this is just a bad dream There is no love No future in nostalgia No blessing in brokenness Only feelings to be guilty of But I'm waiting for someone to prove me wrong Closing wounds Things we dispose I’ll steal your books You’ll bury my clothes When did we end up Playing in the dark? Were we really tired of stalling Or just afraid of false starts? Revel in This post-apocalypse Undo the seams Of two hearts' eclipse You were my everything/I tell myself that this is just a bad dream There is no love No future in nostalgia No blessing in brokenness Only feelings to be guilty of But I'm waiting for someone to prove me wrong

I beg time to give me a window A sliver of your smile, a slice of your life But what can I do With this love of mine? Why do I feel like I could hold you Till the sun wears off her shine Till the oceans stop turning their tide You left me looking for love And what can I do With this weight crushing down on me How can I breathe When infatuation is a curse I choose to keep How do you keep me here wondering If there's already a body lying beside you in your bed? How do you keep me from sleeping Thinking about all the things unsaid? You left me looking for love I can see you smiling back at me I know it don't mean a thing Why d'you keep me hanging by your string? I can see you smiling back at me I know it don't mean a thing Why d'you keep me hanging by your string? You left me looking for love

Rust 05:59
Love You’re just a war You shoot me down Like the morning star Girl Just take your time I wait for no one else Until you’re mine Oh Is it too late? To tear your walls down And lay this weight You fall Into my arms Into this pit of love Into my heart But you crawl Back into his bed His bones his body His mind his head Wait Before you go I cannot love you If I don’t know True We know the facts Time is running and We can’t look back Stop Before we cross Our minds are flooded now And our lives turn to rust Forgiveness Is by grace But I’m not God So why should I stay?
 But you wait For a while Even though I know He wants to bear your child But you crawl Back into his bed His bones his moaning His mouth his head Wait Before you go I cannot love you If I don’t know I know you lie I know you cry But you should know I’ll be here I’ll be waiting I’ll be praying Till you’re gone, gone, gone Till you’re gone, gone, gone Till you’re gone, gone, gone Till you’re gone, gone, gone
