Track Name: PHX
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.
Track Name: keep
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
Track Name: i heard the devil coming
I heard the devil coming
He wove his way through lullabies
So I kept my candles burning
He left me breathless for a while
Track Name: in time
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.
Track Name: firebird
I will build the house on solid ground.
I am my own.
