Track Name: Magic Hour
MAGIC HOUR

we sit at the Magic Hour
i take gin and he takes whiskey
what he needs, i can't give
that seems to be our history

i'm the worst, i'm cursed, i'm done

we make regrets in the morning
we stay up questioning at night
he provokes, i respond
we fight, i die, i die

i'm the worst, i'm cursed, i'm done

ohhh baby
you know that i
get a little tired of you
of every little thing
when you say that i
i do nothing
nothing nothing at all
nothing at all

you fight, i fight, we die, i die

i’m the worst, i’m cursed, i’m done
Track Name: Pony
PONY

run away from me
i'm so vile, you'll see
there you stand a sheep
can't you see i've got teeth
i am so lost

won't you stand where i stand
though i’m the worst
that’s my only one demand

he left me his misery
now there’s you that makes three and oh
he left me with things unsaid
i need you to say them instead
i am so lost

won't you stand, where i stand
though it hurts
that’s my only one demand

i can't be two people for you
i can't be two people for you

won't you stand where i stand
though it hurts
that’s my only one demand

run away, oh please
aren’t you tired of fighting me
Track Name: So Tired
SO TIRED

i saw your ghost
there in the bar
wearing your clothes
you southern drawl

i just wish i could see you
i like i once did

with all the depth and all the scope
needing so much
with so much hope

i just wish you could see me
like you once did

when you smell vanilla, i know you
think of something sweet
the way i, i touch your face
the way i, i left your sheets

aren't you tired
so tired of tattoo philosophies
you’ll find god
you’ll find love in what’s between your knees
Track Name: Veida
VEIDA

we don't love each other
no, none of us enough
it would be much better
oh, if we had just a touch
of empathy empathy
but you know and i know, that isn't me
so, don't you make me as you are
living in a house of cards
that's living for the breeze, that's living dangerously
oh, i know that you know when i say it
i mean, don't get so close to me
don't get so close to me

i just wanna feel, i just want to feel love
i wanna, i wanna, i wanna feel something

can't be tied together for an infinity
a moment, a second, an instance
that's what you get from me
cause i know that you know, i know that you know
That's just not me.
oh that's never me
so don't you make me as you are
living in a house of cards
that's shifting in the breeze
that's shifting blamelessly
when i know that you know that i know
when I say it i mean don't get so close to me
don't get so close to me

i just wanna feel, i just want to feel something
i wanna, i wanna, i wanna feel something

we're not water
we're not blood
no, we're none of the above
just a second
in our youth
but you know that its not love

i want to, i want to, i want to
i need to, i need to, i need to
i've gotta i've gotta i've gotta
feel something
oh something
Track Name: Kidd Cemetery
KIDD CEMETERY

silly little boy you belong here with me
i'm cold, you're cold
lets make some heat
lets make some heat

lover of another you're my only one
i hurt, you hurt
but its all in fun, its all in fun

all those boys with their good and bad
all those boys, all those boys
drive me mad
drive you mad mad

you like love you love love for loves sake
i want the ache, i love the ache, you make me ache
you like me, you want me, on my back
i want you for all you lack
i want you for all you lack
i want you for although you

all those girls with their goods and bads
all those girls drive me mad drive you mad
Track Name: Paradise
PARADISE

i saw you standing there
held captive in the night
tell me true speak me soft
do you think its right
look at me like a tease
sing me something tawdry
linger on for a while love
i know you want me

in the west
i was whole
in the west
i lost myself
in the west
i had it all
in the west, in the west

and i hope in every city
and i know in every town
theres a looker waiting for you
hoping you might settle down

i thought that i could find peace of mind in the west
i thought that i could find paradise in the west
and now i know that i was wrong

i saw light in the days
walk away grace was gone
gave my all to a man
kept his words on his arms
he’s my west
Track Name: Wild Kind
WILD KIND

you want a saccharine lover
sweet to a fault
she's sickness under cover
watch her lips part

me i'm the pirate girl
drink all your wine
you need the candy one
i am the wild kind

you want a golden lover
love her with ease
she waiting in the wings
so do what you please

you find the pirate girl
show you a good time
never the candy one
i am the wild kind

me i’m the pirate girl
lets drink some wine
never the candy one
i am wild kind

i am the pirate girl
drinks only wine
you want a sweet little one
i am the wild kind
Track Name: Bones 1
BONES 1

one of these days
i’ll shape up, face the now

though i know, now’s tough
and one of these days
i’ll get a nine to five
corporate parties, men in ties

today is not that day
and i am not that girl
i’ve got time
i’ve got the whole wide world
in my hands

and one of these days
we’ll have some kids
picket fences, mortgages
and one of these days
i'll go to sleep on time
only drink water,
i’ve got to stay in line but

what do we give up
what do we throw away
we used to live our lives
loving everyday
loving everyday
i love everyday
Track Name: Bones 2
BONES 2

its three AM again
sweetly, softly here i am
laced with something not thin
tastes like shame burns like sin
and

oh my god oh my god
i don’t want to be that girl

here we are foolish and young
daintily destroying we come undone
traipsing and tripping we fall down
and you're looking for a love
that will carry you around and i’m around

she’s no fun for anyone
you see her laughing you know
she’s done
she’s gone
i’m gone
Track Name: Ruins
RUINS

you better break out of the scene
gotta find your place
hope the grass is green
you’d be in ruins if you stayed
though i’d hold you close
keep you if i can

i feel it in my heart i know
this year its ours
i feel it in my bones
so deep like cut forms a scar
i hope you understand
i tried my best to make you proud
i hope you understand
i need you to be all some how

you leave me with your company
all the wasted ones
all the night time thieves
i’d be in ruins if you’d stayed
though i want you close
i’ll push you away

i feel it in my heart i know
this year it’s ours
i feel it in my bones
so deep like a cut you're a scar
i need you to know
i tried my best to make you proud
i need you to to know
i need you to be all some how
