UNSUNG (FEAT. ARETE)

Some songs are better left unsung
Some things are better left undone
Sometimes all we could ever want is someone to hold on to
Someone to hold on to

It's hard to walk away sometimes
It's even harder to pretend that you don't care when you do
But like a last resort brought forth by words that you don't wanna hear
Nothing's harder than the truth

And I've got music in my veins
and a little bit of rhythm in my heart
I've known people that I lost and ones I loved too much
I spent too long not knowing what I want

Some songs are better left unsung
Some things are better left undone
Sometimes all we could ever want is someone to hold on to
Someone to hold on to

And the way it always seems
You surround yourself by things that come around once they go
I say the words I wanna sing but never think of anything
that would be better off on show
Just hold tight to what you love

Some songs are better left unsung
Some things are better left undone
Sometimes all we could ever want is someone to hold on to
Someone to hold on to

The unsung heroes
Dillinger's gun zeroed on that someone to hold on to, make me fear no evil
I'm touching the picture perfect while eating a bag of Cheetos
I guess I smudge it on purpose, I guess I'm getting frustrated
Put creases in puzzle pieces
and bleed the coagulation of music written in vain
When it's early it's getting late
and the rocks I toss at your window are bouncing right off the pain
Found the fountains of euthanasia
The sun is out but it's raining
I'm saying congratulations if maybe you had the patience
of flowers without a vase
and I'm weighted as floats deflated by thorns in the rose parade
and everyone knows my name
With binomial nomenclature I'm only a Homo Sapien
It's the tongue in cheek behavior, whatever dilutes the taste
And something 'bout music playing accelerated lunar phases
Nights darker than Bruce Wayne
So ready for newer days
Stole a halo from and angel
 I'm joking she threw it away

Some songs are better left unsung
Some things are better left undone
Sometimes all we could ever want is someone to hold on to
Someone to hold on to

SNOW

It's almost midnight, and it's freezing outside
I'm by the piano, keeping warm by the fire
My body is warm and you're on my mind
I can't help but wonder if you're thinking of me tonight

Because I'm falling for you like snow
I'm falling for you like snow

I dial your number, but I hang up the phone
It's getting colder, but I'm keeping warm
I'm thinking about you, yeah that much is true
But baby without you I don't know what to do

Because I'm falling for you like snow
I'm falling for you like snow
I'm falling for you like snow
I'm falling for you like snow

 

SOMETHING
ABOUT
DISTANCE

 

LOVING YOU

You're the sun on my face when it's raining outside
You're the light on the coast in the darkest of nights

Eyes so bright I finally see
That you and I are meant to be
I'm lost in thought I know it's true
I just can't stop loving you

You're a warm summer breeze when the weather is dry
But I would weather the storm just to make you all mine

Eyes so bright I finally see
That you and I are meant to be
I'm lost in thought I know it's true
I just can't stop loving you

And it's fine by me if you're taking your time
I'm in love with you girl and I don't need a reason why

Eyes so bright I finally see
That you and I are meant to be
I'm lost in thought I know it's true
I just can't stop loving you

Eyes so bright I finally see
That you and I are meant to be
I'm lost in thought I know it's true
I just can't stop loving you

 

FEEL THE NIGHT

I drive my car into the night
Just need to get away sometimes
I know we're gonna be alright
But I know it's gonna take some time

Here we go again, chasing dreams with coffee
Starting to pretend that stars are paparazzi
Getting into cars and starting to get it right
Running from the sun for the chance to feel the night

I'm finding ways to spend the day
While everything remains the same
Writing words I can't erase
And trying hard to make a change

Here we go again, chasing dreams with coffee
Starting to pretend that stars are paparazzi
Getting into cars and starting to get it right
Running from the sun for the chance to feel the night

And it feels good to feel something
Even if it's not that
It feels good to feel good

And it feels good to feel something
Even if it's not that
It feels good to feel good

Here we go again, chasing dreams with coffee
Starting to pretend that stars are paparazzi
Getting into cars and starting to get it right
Running from the sun for the chance to feel the night

Getting into cars and starting to get it right
Running from the sun for the chance to feel the night

 

GREETINGS FROM TOKYO

It's all new - it's all new to me
I'm far from you somewhere by the sea
Catch my breath - no I just wanna catch my breath

Take me home
Greetings from Tokyo
I fear the winter snow is coming soon

It's a whole new sense of latency
Late phone calls from across the sea
And the airport lights won't go to sleep tonight
And I know where I need to be

Take me home
Greetings from Tokyo
I fear the winter snow is coming soon
I can't sleep
Above all these city streets
Because you know I'd rather be holding you

Catch my flight
No I just wanna catch my flight
Catch my flight
No I just wanna hold you

Take me home
Greetings from Tokyo
I fear the winter snow is coming soon
I can't sleep
Above all these city streets
Because you know I'd rather be holding you

 

RED DRESS

You walk by me in your high heels and I try to catch my breath
And the thought of having your love is scaring me to death

Then you're smiling right at me with a flash of red lipstick
And I wonder what it'd be like to be the one to win your kiss

Girl you are wearing that red dress
Oh you're turning me on
I'll take you out on the dance floor
And we'll dance until dawn

Then you give a quick kiss and my arm's around your waist
And your eyes are on mine - I don't want to look away

Girl you are wearing that red dress
Oh you're turning me on
I'll take you out on the dance floor
And we'll dance until dawn

Baby put your arms around me
We can feel the night grow old
Baby put your arms around me
Girl, you're everything but cold

Girl you are wearing that red dress
You're turning me on
I'll take you out on the dance floor baby
And we'll dance until dawn

Girl you are wearing that red dress
Oh you're turning me on
I'll take you out on the dance floor
And we'll dance until dawn

 

BLOOD BANK

The blood bank is calling
Can I come in for a spell
And give a donation
God knows I'd love to help

But my heart's still sick from you
My blood's still warming up
I fell in love with those sins
And now my soul is warming up

Maybe this was supposed to be a test of faith
Blindsided terrified of what you might say
Maybe I was supposed to write the whole thing down
Pen paper heart in hand sitting on your couch

I can't keep going on like this
I need the blood back in my soul
There's a stain on my heart
From a love that's black as coal

There's a poison in my system
And an aching in my bones
From lying facedown on the floor
If I'm dying please carry me home

Maybe this was supposed to be a test of faith
Blindsided terrified of what you might say
Maybe I was supposed to write the whole thing down
Pen paper heart in hand sitting on your couch

 

THE GIRL FROM IOWA

I met a girl from Iowa - I'd never laid my eyes on her before
Never thought I'd find her, no I never thought I'd see that kind of girl
I fell in love with the girl from Iowa

I met a girl from Iowa - her smile only made me love her more
I got lost in her eyes like an ocean, though I'm miles from the shore
I fell in love with the girl from Iowa

And now she's gone, oh now she's gone
And now she's gone, oh my baby's gone
And now she's gone
And now she's gone

I fell in love with the girl from Iowa
