online

It took a heavy toll this time around
You magnetized my phone so I can't put you down
This constant touch and go ain't good for me
But when I'm looking now there's no one else I see

You take that picture and put it online
I know you know that you could have this heart of mine
And when I'm with you we do it alright
I know you know that you could have this heart
I’ll shake my head to clear these jealous eyes
It’s hard to see you here every day and night
I wish that I could go back in time
So I could get to know you offline

[Repeat Chorus]

I wanna see you when you ain’t online
I wanna tell you you’re on my mind
I wanna see you when you ain’t online
I wanna tell you you’re on my

[Repeat Chorus]

 

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

 

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

wild caves

Headed to Ohio on the highway
Dreaming about a bird that flew away
She's ten thousand miles now
But it would take a million more to forget her name
She's been bringing light to Barcelona
Making strangers smile on the train
He's ten thousand miles now
But it would take a million more to forget his name

So far from home
This love ain't heartbreak
‘Cause love is tidal waves
That make the earth quake

He's been singing songs about her sunshine
Making plans to see her in a week
Days go by in the nick of time
‘Cause he's going crazy just to hear her speak
She's up early waiting on the airline
Drawing pictures til she starts to weep
Hours go by in the nick of time
‘Cause she's going crazy just to kiss his cheek

You're not alone
‘Cause love is daybreak
From cliffside hideaways
And secret wild caves

You’re not alone
This love ain't heartbreak
‘Cause love is tidal waves
That make the earth quake
You’re not alone
‘Cause love is daybreak
From cliffside hideaways
And secret wild caves

 

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
