Lyrics

Here are the lyrics from our first album, And Now We’re Not Alone :)

Made of Hearts & Four Leaf Clovers

I’m climbing up the cupboards
For some wine to discover
But your hands are holding me
From all the harm that I can’t see

Why don’t we all keel over
If we’re made of hearts and four leaf clovers
Bought me for all I’m worth
And still you’ll heal all of my hurt

Stupid Girl, Crazy Horse

I must be trustworthy over the phone
When you see me all I seem to receive is a dial tone
You’re such a stupid girl and I’m a crazy horse
No reason in this world for you ignore

You’re right, I’m wrong all about you again
You’re mind can’t decide whether I’m still a friend
You’re such a stupid girl and I’m a crazy horse
No reason in this world for you ignore

You’re such a stupid girl and I’m a crazy horse
No reason in this world for you ignore
You’re such a stupid girl and I’m a crazy horse
No reason in this world for you ignore

Explosions in the Sky

I’m sitting on the edge of what I one day will acquire
I’m looking out as if to shout that all this will expire
O how my heart does fall apart inside of this consuming fire

I was sitting in my room when you renewed my mind
So why then do I pretend that your daughter is mine?
O how this omnipresence effervesces up into my spine

Tonight all my dreams align
Exploding in the sky
Colliding with my eye, Oh I…
But I’m terrified of flight
Of falling from on high
Of what it’s like to die, Oh I…

I’m looking for the honest love and reproof of a friend
So I’m walking through this crowded room into a sea of men
But none of ‘em know what I’ve done, who I am or where I have been

Holding onto us must feel like holding onto knives
We’re sorry for playing the whore for living double lives
Like lovers in the suburbs under cover as their husbands wives

Tonight all my dreams align
Exploding in the sky
Colliding with my eye, Oh I…
But I’m terrified of flight
Of falling from on high
Of what it’s like to die, Oh I…

Chasing Ghosts

I’m just lying on the carpet
Pretending that I’m just a carcass
A silly game, yeah I know
But all day, I’ve been chasing a ghost

We’re chasing ghosts…

My soul, or whatever it is
Is it getting cold from all of this
A dream in a dream led me to the coast
And at the end I was chasing a ghost

We’re chasing ghosts…

Spheres

My old man, welling up tonight
Cold calm cues to win this fight
Hiding out at your back door
Will we die after one more?

I don’t ever want to do that again
I don’t ever want to do that again
I can’t believe that I did again
I can’t believe that I did …

You don’t speak as I sneak out
Meek blood leaks as I freak out
The day is coming, the day has come
When all my apathy will be undone

And I will never have to do that again
And I will never have to do that again
And I will never ever do that again
And I will never ever do …

Who will save me from this body of death?

Into Your Hands

Turn out the lights and fall to the earth
Thrown like a stone to fall to the dirt
And if this cup can pass, take it away
But what you ask let it be as you say

Move in me like fire and if it must be, let it be done
Men I call friends, why are you asleep?

The weight of my soul’s beginning to tear
A heart in the grass with hands in the air
And if this cannot pass, I will drink death
Pour out your anger, drown out my breath

Move in me like fire and if it must be let it be done
Men I call friends, why are you asleep?

Soaked in the ground I’ve soaked in before
Soaked in this sound an old song of yours
And if this cannot pass, I will drink death
Pour out your anger, drown out my breath

Move in me like fire and if it must be let it be done
Would you betray me with a kiss?

Why can’t I hear noise, why can’t I hear noise?
Why can’t I hear noise, why can’t I hear noise?

Live by the sword and by you’ll die
Am I robber that you’ve come to find

You a mere man claim to be God.
You a mere man claim to be God.
You claim to be God.

What the Earth Can’t Hold

The mother of a friend was there with her eyes
The live among the dead they said she’ll never find
Seven miles from the holy land,
Didn’t know who was holding our hands

Lock the doors or we’re all going to die
How did this man come inside?
No ghost has ever had bones
My hand on your scar now I know

There is no one in here to find

Even Though

Even though I went home and I turned from the plow
Even though I let go and I started to drown
Even though I said no when she asked me about
Even though there were crows from the birds all around

Even though I’m here
Where you found me before
You still turn to my ear
And you ask me once more

Do you love me, do you love me, do you love me?
Do you love me, do you love me, do you love me?
Do you love me, do you love me, do you love me?
God you know I do.

Wrapped in Plaster

I can see that all of these old sounds are starting to turn
And I can see that all of these old towns are starting to burn

Wrapped in plaster
Beating faster
I’m the master
Of my dying heart
In plaster
Beating faster
I’m the master
Of my dying heart

But not in my new heart I won’t fall apart ever again
In my new heart I won’t fall apart ever again
In my new heart I won’t fall apart ever again
In my new heart I won’t fall apart…

From far away I hear the love of fathers and their sons
The sky is screaming, brooks are teaming gladness from their tounges

Wrapped in plaster
Beating faster
I’m the master
Of my dying heart
In plaster
Beating faster
I’m the master
Of my dying heart

But not in my new heart I won’t fall apart ever again
In my new heart I won’t fall apart ever again
In my new heart I won’t fall apart ever again
In my new heart I won’t fall apart…
