Track Name: Exchange Spit
This might be the last time we exchange spit
and that sorta bums me out
truth is i like you but i've a feeling this wont work out

This might be the last time we exchange spit
and that sorta bums me out
truth is i like you and I'm not like that but I think i've got to be
Track Name: Teeth
I sat in peace in that piano room
You played the teeth and I gave into your tune
Your hands were softly pressed against the keys
where the magic happened or so it seems

out on the Oviatt i sit and stare
the thousand faces that would pass my way
some were familiar yeah and some were new
but i just hoped that i'd run into you

find me
haunt me
Track Name: Kiki
kiki was playing on the tv
we watched the whole thing
i lay among your scent with my face across your back
this feels so damn good

then we were on your bed
tangled in each other's legs
lay bare upon the sheets
pressed up onto me
like this was always meant to be

a new rejoice
a new sound sung
they all kept ringing like an echo
before we know it
we're out the door
can we do this again

why dont we have a day where we watch all the Ghibli movies
from start to end
that's how our day is spent
amazing animations and flawless sex
Track Name: If You Know, Then You Know
best kept secret rolling off my tongue
dont want to hide
its rolling off my tongue

best kept secret in the back of my mind
when im with the gang
i can keep you here

if i could shout this to the world, you know I would
and even if they dont quite understand, they dont have to know

they dont have to know about anything we do
as far as im concerned its all about me and you
as far as im concerned this is me and you
Track Name: Shades of Blue
i can see all shades of blue when you tell me how you feel
you can trust me i dont judge you
it's disgusting but its real
we're sitting on some ledge spilling all of our emotions
this is normal unlike us, but we're just going through the motions

i could tell you were uncomfortable but i still hope
that you're thankful despite all our playful insults
im expecting great results when all of this is over and you change your ways as we grow older

your heart is covered in layers of metal and stone
you keep to conversation through the messages on your phone
you dont have to pretend that you want to be alone

I can see all shades of blue when we're speaking our minds
you keep saying you cant trust me but honestly its fine
just give me one good reason why we shouldnt even talk
if you find one i will leave and take my ever shameful walk

this is better than sitting in some room feeling trapped
hiding feelings - good or bad - because it keeps you intact
i'll watch you as you grow
make sure that you get better
cause you know as friends we fall (we fall), we fall apart together
Track Name: In the Arms of the Trees
stay in the forest in the arms of the trees
dont feel no shame no more
it was best that you leave
hold onto your tears
no need to let yourself cry
just stick to traveling mountains with your head towards the sky

let mother earth catch your arms in embrace
she'll take that sadness away and keep a smile on your face
the view from the top surrounds you with despair
but you're on your way
you recover/repair

dont come home too soon
get lost in the blue
go find something new

dont come home too soon
the world has something better for you
Track Name: Dead
if i ended up dead now
i wouldnt fall in love
i wouldnt have a future
i wouldnt get better

if i ended up dead now
i wouldnt do what i love
i wouldnt wake up
i wouldnt feel like shit

no id be stuck 6 feet in the ground in a box of boens and hollowed eyes and you wouldnt ever see me
Track Name: Love Covered Bones
mourning has been all that i could do
you understand because you know you know these feelings too
on days like this i never wonder what I'd do next
I'd rather bottle inside all that I've got left

dont you worry bout these wounds they will soothe
put some pressure
hold it tighter
and i know that the pain will subside
your love has covered my bones, running in through my veins
the thought of you are rushing to my brain

you say I care too much
how much do you think is enough?

you say i care too much
well, i think i'd rather call it love
Track Name: Explore
i've been so low but you have always been there for me
you're the only one who knows how i feel about these god awful folds between the pages that would tear me up
and there is no one here like you
they all assume too much

i cherish friendships and connections more than anything
so if you ever need somebody you can come to me
come escape with me, we'll find all there is to explore
I know you wanna go to places that you've never been before

dont ever leave me all alone
i need you now before they've broken all my bones
and i know that you're so far away
but I've never felt so close
Track Name: If You Know, Then You Know (Mellowed)
best kept secret rolling off my tongue
dont want to hide
its rolling off my tongue

best kept secret in the back of my mind
when im with the gang
i can keep you here

if i could shout this to the world, you know I would
and even if they dont quite understand, they dont have to know

they dont have to know about anything we do
as far as im concerned its all about me and you
as far as im concerned this is me and you
