Track Name: Kite
Bright grey sunrise, nearly white
Steal my breath and weigh me light
Questions of the time it takes to fall in love
I mean, I mean, the time it takes to lose it all

And they say,
Baby, baby, baby, baby, baby
You keep on stomping through the ground
And, honey, honey, honey, honey, honey
I see you, you are on your way down

But, lose my head, your hands and mouth
Spit slick lips, a moving sound
Light is a force until it's gone
Darkness in my heart, so strong

And they say,
Baby, baby, baby, baby
I am just trying to help
And, honey, honey, honey, shhhh
You know you can't do this by yourself

Lose me
No, don't lose me now
Wobble feet, make mistakes
But, don't let me down
And this peaceful pulling to the ground
Is a way, but couldn't we fly?
Don't our feathers splay?

Blood read sunset, clouds so ripe
And all the power of an empty sky
Come on cut the string, you're a straining kite
Oh, and crashing, darling, is just part of the flight

So you can lose me
Oh, but, don't lose me now
Skip a beat, make mistakes
But don't let me drown
And this peaceful, dark pulling to the ground
Is a way, but we could fly
My wings are raised

Oh, and how long does it take to fall in love?
Just the time it takes to lose it all
Track Name: Love You Light
She knocks on my door
She just wants to hang
And never asks more
She knows where I've been
Don't care what's she'll be
Babe, you know I don't talk
And you get what you see

Now, step into the light
Let me see your face
You course at me like a river
Your hands to my waist
Let me take your coat
Would you like a seat?
I guess the night is looking young
I've got nowhere to be

Sure, shake out your hair, I never mind
Hold me tight, but what are you looking to find?

Child, you're too young to know
But, the harder you hold, the faster they make you let go
So, I'll hold you light, if you want that tonight
It's been a long and winding road
You don't look like you're ready to go

Move on in
Nestle up
Take a warm sip from this cup
There's no rush
You're so sweet
The darkness is soft
Your breath the heat

Oh, now, Girl
Your eyes so wide
Your hands on my chest
Slip down to my sides
That whiskey scent
We pulled in here
Feel it in your arms
It's gonna fill up our ears

Then, you step close, trip over your shoes
I can tell you've been learning what it's like to lose

Child, you're too young to know
But, the harder you hold, the faster they make you let go
So, I'll hold you light, if you'd want that tonight
It's been a long and winding road
You look like you might want to know

And I could never
Turn her away
She never asks
Already sure she can stay
Here tonight
You feel so right
My little tempest in a teapot
Look the storm in the eye
And she'll fly
Out the window to dawn
Never wakes me for a kiss
Before she is gone
And that's alright
I just bid her good flight
She always seems to come back around
When she feels like taking my time

And that's fine, no, I never mind
Storm Cloud Baby, let's make thunder tonight

Child, you're too young to know
But the harder you hold, the faster they make you let go
So, I'll hold you light, if you want that tonight
It's been a long and winding road
You look like you already know

So, baby, fly in here
I am not one to land
I am not one to force
Rivers into my hand
Go on and ride your wave
To the top of the crest
You find you never crash down
If you have nothing left
They could want

Child, you're too young to know
But, don't hold on too tight, they just make you let go
So, I'll hold you light, would you let me tonight?
Oh, babe, this ain't about your soul
I think you already know
Track Name: Honey
Honey's dripping from a watch face, ticking off against my lips
A first time for everything is embodied in her hips
Out pockets empty out of seconds before we know they've left
Kiss me just a little, I want to taste the calculations on your breath

Two silver summer moons, a graduation into bloom.
The sounds we utter ache like gravity holding off impending flight
And sailing through the noise, wave to wave, joy of joys
She is washing through the spaces I'm denying in the light

And I won't fight
City bright
You want to dance?
I'm whiskey white

Every heart beat takes a minute, swiping years off of our lives
She'd give them all away for anything to speed the pairing knife
Strike away all brittle pieces that prick sharp in the night
We needed them at some point - she can't remember, but I've tried

And the clock strikes dry
All puddled time
Stretching sweet above our heads
And laughing at our "Why?'s"

Don't fight
Glitter night
You want to dance?
I'm whiskey white

Morning sunbeam caught in curtain falls too short and hits no skin
Older in a nighttime, underneath, and deeper in
Do you think it's where we wander, or who we keep along the flight
Or how her hands lay while she's sleeping that's measured when we die?

I'm out of fight
Name the height
How do we last
So whiskey white?

You want to dance?
I'm whiskey white
Track Name: Runaway
I wish you'd have run away with me
Uproot this sapling of a Poison Tree
And get us some Western sun for our cheeks
I wish you'd have run away with me

We'd look out the window on a back wooden porch
That would splinter sometimes in our feet
See all the things we've never seen before
Oh, I wish you'd have run away with me

Right now, we could be racing through bright sky
With amber waves, blowing free
Oh, and purple mountains, upside-down in your eyes
I wish you'd have run away with me

'Cause I tried to hold you, engulf you in love
But, darling, you're made of boundaries
So many fences I tried to jump
And you never once followed me

Well, it's hard to be idle and just bide my time
When a future's so painfully in reach
If you'd only let me give you my all
And trust, run away with me

I wish you'd have run away with me
Uproot this sapling of a Poison Tree
And get us some Western sun for our cheeks
Yeah, I wish you'd have run away with me

I tried to hold you, engulf you in love
But, darling, you're made of boundaries
So many fences I tried to jump
And, hey, you never once followed me

Yeah, tried to hold you, engulf you in love
But, darling, you're made of boundaries
If you'd only let me give you my all
And trust, run away with me
Run away with me

Yeah, You could have run away with me
Oh, I wish you'd have
Yeah, you could have
Oh, I wish you'd have run away with me
