PHX 03:13
i saw light above your head. you said, darling, could i hold you through the night? but you should try to forget my name cause you know that i was nothing but a sin to you. and i was a fool for loving you wishing we could fly away from here. i was a phoenix and you were a lullaby and you, you were a god of stone.

keep 05:50
so take me higher and notice that nothing was falling apart lift your head up and swallow the mouth to the darkness i will keep my light on for you, come morningtime so take me higher and notice that nothing was falling apart tell your stories another way write yourself out of the darkness i will keep my light on for you, come morningtime

I heard the devil coming He wove his way through lullabies So I kept my candles burning He left me breathless for a while

in time 06:32
someday i'll wake you softly with lullabies we'll take on the day with nothing to fear and i'd like to feel your pulse in the morningtime i'll ask you who you want to be and where you want to go someday someday we'll leave the party early and we might take the long way home and someday we'll pay our bills with whiskey by our sides and we'll do all the dishes with the radio playing our favorite song someday i'll trade my wisdom for bravery i'll clear out the way when you want to go but we'll have our time to make this feel holy so babe, i will love you while i can.
