Track Name: Child
I ran away last night to the water
I bathed in the cold and clean like a child would
And it felt right, and I felt alive, like I could fly
But we all know that I'm dreaming
It will never solve itself that way

And I met a man last night; he told me one thing
He told me that I am blind like a baby
And he was right, and he said that I would regain sight
Once I learned how to close my eyes

Maybe it's my right to know that I don't know
And maybe it's my time to see that I
Am the product of my own bitterness
So turn it sweet, for me, oh, turn it sweet

I ran way last night to the water
I bathed in the cold and clean, and I felt taller
But I was alone in the unknown, so I ran home
To face myself
And what I've said, and what I won't
Track Name: Until I Try
Your enigmatic eyes breathe life into my heart
But boy you are so quiet that I don't know where to start

I wanna tell you I'm in love
I wanna tell you that it's fine
I wanna say that I'd do anything for you
Oh I want to run and hide

And as you tie your shoes, I watch your nimble hands
Hands that I could use to hold when things don't go as planned

I wanna kiss you on your mouth
And everywhere besides
I wanna say that I'd do anything for you
Oh I want to run and hide
Oh I want to run and hide

I guess I'll never know until I try (I guess I'll never know until I try)
I guess I'll never know until I try (I guess I'll never know until I try)
I guess I'll never know until I try (I guess I'll never know until I try)
I guess I'll never know until I try (I guess I'll never know)
So,

I wanna tell you I'm in love
I wanna tell you that it's fine
I wanna say that either way it's a-okay
But I want you to be mine (I'll never know until I try)
But I want you to be mine (I'll never know until I try)
Oh I want you to be mine
Track Name: Grave
I've been there on the wings of a bird
I've been there in my most beautiful dreams
I've been there and it's a paradise in the specks of your eyes
It's always just out of my reach

I've been there when you say hello
I've been there when you say goodbye
I've been there, and I've basked in the golden glow, oh that only I know
But you keep it locked and I don't know why

If you opened up to me, your light could pull me from the fray
(and we could sail away)
Your eyes the only sea I need
Your body made to be my grave

You've been there in your darkest hour
You've been there in your frightened mind
You've been there and it's a paradise behind your closed eyes
You go there late at night

If you opened up to me, your light could pull me from the fray
(and we could sail away)
Your eyes the only sea I need
Your body made to be my grave
Track Name: Lashes
Please do not talk to me, I am a fragile child (I am a fragile child)
I am a fragile one of these red faces will offer me blood
But I am a fragile one
I'm a lash on your eye and I'm beating, beating
I'm a lash to your back and I'm bleeding, bleeding
Oh please do not talk to me, I am a fragile child

Please do not touch me, no, I am a fragile boy (I am a fragile boy)
I am a fragile one of these quick glances will turn me to stone
But I am a fragile one
I'm a tune in your head and I'm halting, halting
I'm a wound to your flesh that you're salting, salting
Oh please do not touch me, no, I am a fragile boy

I have broken hearts, never bones, never my own
Oh I have said goodbye too many times to know when to cry, oh

Please do not love me, no, I am a fragile child (I am a fragile child)
I am a fragile one of these days I'll get more than I can take
Oh I am a fragile one
I'm the nails on your hand that you're biting, biting
I'm the nail that you hammer inside me, inside me
Oh please do not talk to me, please do not touch me, no,
Please do not love me, no, I am a fragile child
Track Name: She Took Your Breath Away
You wore a wrinkled dress and you got drunk
And you swore that you would never drink again
But she gave you something and you couldn't get enough
And it wasn't long before she lived inside your bed

She took your breath away
She took your breath away
She took your breath away
She took your breath away, and I loved to see you smile

You wore a winter coat and things got bad
You swore it was the end too many times
She bruised you for each memory you had,
And you cried, oh Lord, you cried

She took your breath away
She took your breath away
She took your breath away
She took your breath away, in a hard fought fight

You let her kiss you in the grass
I closed my eyes and let time pass
I'll worry for you if you let it last

She'll take your breath away
She'll take your breath away
She'll take your breath away
She'll take your breath away, and she'll leave you out to die

She took your breath away
She took your breath away
She took your breath away
She took your breath away
Track Name: In My Bones
I, I think that you should live
It's time for me to go to sleep
I've got this funny feeling in my bones
I've got this funny feeling in my mind
I've got this funny feeling in my bones, and it's there all the time

I give more than I can take
Pretend that I am being safe
I'm starving and it grips me like a knot
I'm starving for another measly bite
I'm starving and it grips me like a knot, and it grips all the time

I, I try to keep it down
I lie when no one is around
I've got this funny feeling in my bones
I've got this funny feeling in my mind
I've got this funny feeling in my bones and it's there all the time
