Track Name: The Muse
The angry night awaits outside, bent on engulfing me
But here inside your eyes am I-- a safe haven made for me
I want you to know how my heart bleeds to be held by you
Loved by you
And to make it through the night
I want you to know how I can't breathe with you close to me
These faded tears might surface tonight
As I face the sleepy ocean
And these three insipid stares
I am filled with new emotion
I could leave my body here
But I fear the only way to touch you
Is through the skin that has captured me
I can't quell these jealous shadows
But my heart dances within me
You're my fount of inspiration
You're the muse that sings for me
I can't quell these jealous shadows
My heart dances within me
I want you to hang onto me
Let our flesh melt together in sweet agony
Track Name: Hopes Fall
This feels like something I've felt before
Too many times before
This feels like hitting my head on the floor
Weighed down by too many feelings- regret and revenge
And yet I stand, arms at my sides
For two seconds I hoped it was different
I thought something good and then gave up once more
It's happened too many times and I trained myself not to cry
And yet here am I
And the tears pour down
It's over, it's over before it starts
And I had no chance to win your heart
Your face, your face I will never kiss
And your arms, your arms- how I hate this
Watching you knowing I'll never know what it would be to know your deepest hopes
I feel like taking a dose of this perilous medicine
And knowing no more, knowing no more, knowing no more, knowing no more
And the tears pour down
I'm alone, I'm alone
It never starts, it will never start
I will never know
And I'll never hold you
I'll never kiss your forehead, kiss you goodnight
And I fall, that's all
This is all I'll ever know
Hopes fall
It's all I will ever know
This is perilous water
I've crossed it before and I'll cross it once more
And it's over, it's over before it starts
And I crave your heart
But my grave is hard
And this feels like something I've felt before, yeah
Too many, too many times before
This feels like something I've felt before, too many times before
This feels like hitting my head on the floor
Track Name: So Deep
"I'm better off without you," is the pretty phrase I play with when you tell me you don't love me and you've taken all my happiness away, away
And suddenly I'm lonely, but I'll never let you see because I don't want you to know that you were everything to me, to me
And I'll take my chances on my own
If I can't be alone with you, then I'll just be alone
And tell and tell and tell myself I'm better off without you
I'm better off without you
I'm better off without you
I'm better off without your arms around me
Without your light about me
And life is good again
I tell myself it's never been so wonderful as now that you are gone
And now that I can see behind your face
And see in space that up or down- there's no such place
Such love has never been more wrong, more wrong
And I feel better now that I can see
Clearly, I know better now than to fall in love so deep
In love so deep
Tell myself it will all be alright
I tell myself it will be just fine
And yell and yell and tell myself
I'm better off without you
I'm better off without you
I'm better off without you
I'm better off without you
