She is a song I sing Isn't afraid of anything She is a well of joy An ocean of love, nobody's toy A woman, and I am just a boy She is a daffodil Quick with a charm before the kill Her smile is a ray of light My one shred of hope, my kryptonite She's hot as the sun, dark as the night Ahead of her time And under that skin Is a woman who may never let you in But to love is not a sin And she knows it Under the Manhattan skies She'll open her mind and close her eyes And drift off to paradise The world melts away as if it's ice She'll leave it behind And under that skin Is a woman who may never let you in But to love is not a sin And she knows it deep within La da da da da da La da da da da da da da

Clouds 03:22
A dark green hill upon a sphere Standing still, I look out and disappear And melt into nothing Into all things I taste the light of murky grey Of blinding white heat, of a painless decay So painful to watch They don’t notice I’m all alone with my thoughts, I can’t tune out my screaming mind I want to feel your hands touch my soul Shape me, erase that which I can’t control I wonder who I’d be without you Looking out into the night, the wind bites at my aching heart I pull you close to my chest, and the wind dies down The moon hides away behind the dark blue clouds You say you saw a shooting star Is someone up there looking down from afar? They’d be disappointed Save for you You’re falling asleep on my shoulder The moon pokes out from behind the dark black clouds

In Love 03:44
As she floats into the room, a hundred eyes fall hopelessly in love A voice like melting honey, she looks off You wonder what she’s thinking of Oh darling, oh darling, count on me My darling, relax, I guarantee There’s no need to hurry Just slow down, don’t worry In love is the best way to be Voices in her mind, they question every move They never let her rest She sees devils in the eyes of men Every honest moment, second-guessed Oh darling, oh darling, count on me My darling, relax, I guarantee There’s no need to hurry Just slow down, don’t worry In love is the best way to be You remind me what it means to be alive Oh darling, oh darling, count on me My darling, relax, I guarantee There’s no need to hurry Just slow down, don’t worry In love is the best way to be In love is the best way to be

Blue 03:21
I’m in love with the places I’ve never seen and all the people yellow and green and I wake up in the morning looking contented But my dreams, they leave me so empty So let’s run, run away Catch a flight to the moon We’ll be gone yesterday Not a day too soon, oh If you feel how I feel And I know that you do Then let’s make our escape From this world so blue Late at night, the sky is an indigo forest And I’d like to go and explore it The morning sun, it shines with orange beginning But my hope is rapidly thinning So let’s run, run away Catch a flight to the moon We’ll be gone yesterday Not a day too soon, oh If you feel how I feel And I know that you do Then let’s make our escape From this world so blue Hollow eyes, there’s something missing from your smile Maybe something this world can’t provide I’ve thought this through I think we all need something new What is there left to do But run, run away Catch a flight to the moon We’ll be gone yesterday Not a day too soon, oh If you feel how I feel And I know that you do Then let’s make our escape From this world so blue And we’re all so blue And we’re all so blue And we’re all so blue And we’re all so blue

I Guess 03:07
I can’t believe that after all this time You’re gonna leave me here alone with my guitar I gave it all to you You know, I didn’t have to I guess I went a little bit too far And now the memories come flooding back You’re in the face of every girl I see I gave it all to you You know, I didn’t have to I just wish you’d give it back to me But now I guess it’s just a bit too late I need to step back for a moment, reevaluate the decisions I’ve been making Though you know I hate to ask why Oh, I I can’t believe that after all this time After all the earnest promises we made I gave it all to you You gave it to me too But it must have all been a charade But now I guess it’s just a bit too late I need to step back for a moment, reevaluate the decisions I’ve been making Though you know I hate to ask why Oh, I I can’t believe that after all this time That after all this time

Incomplete 02:41
You left your earring here in my bedroom I’d love to walk it over back to you But you wouldn’t be there If you were, I’d be scared to hear what you’d say, anyway You left your scent all over my bedsheets, inside my sweatshirt, and in my memory I can’t fall asleep because you are a dream And my simple brain can’t compete I’m incomplete I guess you’re left with only one earring It seems so useless now on its own I’m sure you’ll soon find a new one, and leave behind that old piece of who you were when you were young

Oh Oh, I didn’t get a chance to tell you how I’d love to hold your hand just one more time and take you to that spot up on the hill Between the castle and the dreary city skyline Where we used to sit and watch the cars and trucks hum down the highway And you sat so close to me, I couldn’t breathe My hands were sweating and my mind was racing You looked like a goddess But you fade away as quickly as a half-remembered dream I’d like to trade for this reality we’re forced to live in every day But anyway You’re the sun lighting up my sky You’re my June afternoon And I, I love you, I really don’t know why But I do, you’re the tears I cry Oh Oh, I didn’t get a chance to ask you if you’d like to lie beside me one more time On my bed, or on yours, it doesn’t matter We’d put on some Dylan, close our eyes, and drift off to a beach somewhere in California Where the sunlight burns away your worries and your restlessness and trepidation Darkness has no business being near you You’re an angel sent from somewhere high above me And I hope one day you’ll love me like you did when we were sitting in the courtyard and you laughed at how you were supposed to be at some dumb party But you realized all you wanted sat beside you And you took my hand and told me that you’d never been so happy And we shared a smile and walked inside You’re the sun lighting up my sky You’re my June afternoon And I, I love you, I really don’t know why But I do, you’re the tears I cry Oh Oh Oh, I shouldn’t love you like I do You left without a word of warning I woke up alone that morning, terrified It’s right out of a nightmare, or a movie, but at least in most good screenplays, there’s a reason You just changed your mind and cut me out completely Now you treat me like a stranger who’s not worth your time And maybe I am not But, still, you haunt my dreams and all my waking hours I can’t escape your voice And all the words you said live in my mind and in my heart You sounded so sincere, and I believed you like a child But I was blind My vision is still blurry Please just hurry and come home You’re the sun lighting up my sky You’re my June afternoon, July Harvest moon December makes me cry, November too October I was high When I’m with you, I feel like I can fly You wake me up, you make me feel alive You put the colors of the rainbow in my life You left me here, you make me want to die And I love you, I really don’t know why But I do, you’re the tears I cry This afternoon, you’re the tears I cry This afternoon, you’re the tears I cry Oh, what I would give to go back in time Oh, what I would give to go back in time Oh, what I would give to go back in time Oh, what I would give to go back in time Oh, what I would give to go back in time Oh, what I would give to go back in time Oh, what I would give to go back in time Oh, what I would give to go back in time

Oh, darling, you have given your life to the breeze Spending your nights thinking too much on your knees Lost in your mind, a sea of black candy cane trees A forest of plastic smiles and dripping disease And darling, I know that it’s easy Changing your mind with the seasons I’m tired of chasing your reasons So I’ll stop Just don’t try to come home Oh, darling, you have given your soul to the crowd Feel them close in, their footsteps are terribly loud Step, now, with care, as you’ll soon learn what’s allowed Straighten your hair Be unique, just like everyone else And darling, I know that it’s easy Changing your mind with the seasons I’m tired of chasing your reasons So I’ll stop Just don’t try to come home ‘Cause I changed the lock And you lost the key Tomorrow, I won’t be where you used to find me Darling, I know that it’s easy Changing your mind with the seasons I’m tired of chasing your reasons So I’ll stop Just don’t try to come home Don’t try to come home Don’t try to come home

Oh, my darling, girl, why won’t you look my way? It’s been since yesterday that I saw you smile Tell me, is there something wrong? Something I can do or say? You take my words away, hold my hand awhile I can tell you’re not okay Your voice gives it all away Oh, my darling, girl, you haven’t been the same Tell me, am I to blame? Have I lost my mind? Oh, I I just don’t understand how overnight, you changed But when I search your eyes, all that I can find is a void where there was light You told me you loved me just last night And if you leave tomorrow I don’t know how I will carry on without you You’re the moon, and when you’re gone The stars, they barely glow You’re like the snow You fall for me, then melt away You’ve turned so cold Oh, my darling, girl, it’s been a few months and I can’t help but want to die when I hear your name You’re in my dreams all day, and you don’t leave at night I wish you’d reignite that dying flame inside But you feel better on your own You’re far more adept at being alone But when you leave tomorrow I don’t know how I will carry on without you You’re the moon, and when you’re gone The stars, they barely glow You’re like the snow You fall for me, then melt away And once in a while, when I just need to smile or cry I’ll think back to lying by your side when you looked in my eyes and told me you loved me And nothing else mattered at all Oh, my darling, it has to have been years since we last saw each other He has your brown eyes I can’t believe how you’ve changed, but you still look the same I smell impatience under your disguise And I know you’re dying to leave this town This life could never tie you down But when you leave tomorrow I don’t know how they will carry on without you You’re the moon, and when you’re gone The stars, they barely glow You’re like the snow You’re beautiful And when you left I really did not know how I could carry on without you You’re the moon, and when you’re gone You leave a gaping hole You are a song You are my soul You are my soul She is a song I sing She is a song I sing She is a song I sing She is a song I sing
