Under The Same Stars - lyrics

1. these cold nights

These cold nights
With flooded eyes
We warm our hands
By blowing into them
Home is us
But wanderlust
Pulls me far
We’re under the same stars

And I’m calling you from the station

So goodnight
Love won’t die
With goodbyes and distance

These dark days
I’ve been away
I’m missing things
All the colors you would bring
Crows land by
Our aging eyes
I’m lost in time
I wonder if I cross your mind

And I’m calling you from the station

So goodnight
Love won’t die
With goodbyes and distance

Under the same, under the same stars, under the sam, under the same X2
Good, good, goodbye good, goodbye X2

So goodnight
Love won’t die
With goodbyes and distance
So goodnight
Love won’t die
With goodbyes and distance

2. ellie

Ellie I've been on the road for miles
You told me to call you when I get into your county 
Looking for a place to lay a while
Take me into all the corners of your 
Daydream pull me in to listen to a heartbeat
Long enough to loose all track of time

And I’m driving at sixty five 
Cause you said come and get me
I can’t stand one more sleepless night alone
Getting closer to you

Ellie I've been dreaming dizzy since you
Kissed me and put your name in ink below my shirt sleeve 
Told me I could call you anytime

And I’m driving at sixty five 
Cause you said come and get me
I can’t stand one more sleepless night alone
Getting closer to you

Headlights in the sky
Staying up all night
And I'm coming back to you
Thousand mile drive
They go flying by
Getting closer to

Ellie I've been on the road for miles
You told me to call you when I get into your county 
Looking for a place to lay a while

3. letter

This is the letter 
I don’t think I could write to you
Maybe it’s better if I leave you alone
But it’s two AM and I’ve been missing 
All the time we spent on the phone

We used to sing together 
Till we were half asleep
And we’d begin to make up most of the words
You would sit on the piano
Catching me forgetting all of the chords
And I don’t know where to start
I keep on playing hide and seek with my heart

I don’t know if I ever 
Want to get through to you
But I’m afraid to let the silence go on
Cos the last time that I saw you 
We pretended we we’re getting along
And I don’t know where to start
I keep on playing hide and seek with my heart

SOLO

This is the letter 
I don’t think I could write to you
Maybe it’s better if I leave you alone
But it’s two AM and I’ve been missing 
All the time we spent on the phone

And I don’t know where to start
I keep on playing hide and seek with my heart
Oh I don’t know where to start
I keep on playing hide and seek with my heart

4. dancing on the weekend

Lost going fast
On this blacktop in the afternoon 
Just for a weekend 
We can runaway from everything and
Drive crooked roads 
Up to Canada to hideaway 
With miles and music
We're escaping from our everyday and

Dancing on the weekend
Leave it all behind
Dancing when we know we should be sleeping
But we will sleep after we die

Ohhhh
Ohhhh

Days go by
Far to quickly in this paradise 
We’ll wave goodbye
Sinking south again on a Sunday night we’re

Dancing on the weekend
Leave it all behind
Dancing when we know we should be sleeping
But we will sleep after we die

We will sleep after we die (We will sleep after we die)
Sleep after we die (Sleep after we die)
Sleep after we die (Sleep after we die)

Ohhhh
Ohhhh

5. nine mile kite

Rain showers in September sun
Her flower petal lips begun
Showing all her teeth in rows
Toss your clothes and run outside

These sour apples overrun
Devour yours and leave me none
Endless eyes of indigo
Leave me standing here untied

She’s a nine mile kite
Stitched with dynamite 
Watch the clouds ignite
And she’ll dance in the storm

I called you to tell you
That it’s raining in Whitefield
And this loneliness I feel
Has been bringing me down

The twilight is coming 
Turning into the nighttime
And my eyes will be drying
Once I get on the road

You walk to the mirror 
Trying to see what’s behind you 
And I wanted to find you
Before the memories fade

I’ve checked all the backroads
And I’ve looked by the ocean
But you’re always in motion
And you never come home
