I remember when I first surrendered 
I was holding up my arms 
And the night it had fallen about us 
Every solider to a shelter, 
Every man into his mask, 
I held mine up high in the darkness. 
Could I shed my second skin 
And throw my costume to the wind 
To sing out...

I saw you in color that day 
A rainbow alive in your hair 
Cannot stay 

You had just smiled in the cold 
A vein of fire burning inside out 
Won’t blow away 

That was then 
The fire burned on 
It raised its back 
And kept us warm in the night 

What is alive in the da...

When I awoke, I opened my eyes 

Under the eternal blue 

I would trace the lines on your face 

To see where they were running to 

The sun in the sky was spinning round 

The clock on the wall was singing out 

But we didn't hear a sound..... 

Soon I found, we had mirrors for eye...

here I am, just the stranger in the storm 
wanting just a little warmth 
a place to hide my form 
so let me stay, once a king but now a knave 
give me calm beneath your shade 
a quiet place to lay my head down 

you're right on time 
I was sure to lose my light 
it's all...

I know, but I don't got a reason 
That you and I could hold up a sky 
And I felt, when you're moving and breathing 
That just that could up the sky 

Cause we can't run back again to stay 
We only flow one way.... 

But when you say 
My heart is alive 
I know, I know 

May 2, 2016

I remember when I first froze 
I was buried in those winter snows 
I couldn't move or turn about 
My love was gone and I was crying out 
That oh what I couldn't do 
Was hold on love to you 
Though I wanted to 
So I held on in the cold 
With my shadow growing tall

Shake the dreams from your hair
With the sunlight coming down
And you can’t be what you were
When the sunlight hits the ground

All my kingdom lies
Subject at my feet
But a moment in the light
I cannot quite keep
All the spires rise
To open in the sun
When I have close...

Come on over, I've got nothing left to hide 
My days are rollin' over, I'll be lying down to die 
Come on over, I'm not the only mark 
Abandoned all my friends and took the winnings in the dark 
Come on over, I'm not the one betrayed 
I gave you up for silver and carri...
