Heavy Love

I'll give you mine, all my bends are for her and all my teeth get warmer for my anchor

selfishly, I lick slip between your knees to find me reeling up my feet to fight the ceiling

while I wait I watch you skate from place to place, a wave of grace in your wake

and I fear the way these words come to the page so easily, you got so deep in me

I dream of you when I'm upright

you use me as your nightlight

I sweat so much I skid by

your tongue licks up all of my bites

a cigarette in the half light, we're beach bums we fuck in the daylight

you're scared and I know why, 'cause I'm the one that feels right

 

I know that time, does all he can to rhyme and to make us feel like every bed we make is a coffin

I've heard that seasons change with the way your face gets when I tell you that I will yell of my secrets

but I'm for you like noah walking through in twos in my priestly collars I will yell all the ways you've won me

 

I dream of you when I'm upright

you use me as your nightlight

I sweat so much I skid by

your tongue licks up all of my bites

a cigarette in the half light, we're beach bums we fuck in the daylight

you're scared and I know why, 'cause I'm the one that feels right

 

you're so heavy love

you're so heavy love

Safety

You are as perfect as all the seven days of creation, god must have loved it

salt leaves and door screens, blood bed and night screams

I'll be your safety, if you'll be my safety

but soon I will try to fly out and leave you

but please don't believe me, tie weights to my feet

 

I don't wanna tell you now

I don't wanna tell you how I know

I don't wanna break you down

I don't know if I can take the load of our love

 

I'm too pop for the basement scene of sludge and drop jaw

but I can't fit see, I'm faceless but I'm not your dream queen

But i fit right in between your legs and your feet they will hold me, your arms will enfold me

 

I don't wanna tell you now

I don't wanna tell you how I know

I don't wanna break you down

I don't know if I can take the load of our love

 

 

Snowday

I was right where you found me, you were kneeling behind me, your hands in my hair

I kept waiting for too long till sleet and snow got me so drunk, and I can't remember the first one

I dig your darkness in all my veins, I feel it right when i hold tight

my lungs clench up when you call my name, I feel it weigh like a soft pain

 

I fear the ignorance that comes with bliss

I fear the ignorance that comes with bliss

I fear the ignorance that comes with bliss

I fear the innocence will flee my flesh

 

I'll be burning for you babe, morning love is the one way the lord made on sundays

read me all your red skin and show me who you have been, and I will love all them

I dig your darkness in all my veins, I feel it right when I hold tight

my lungs clench up when you call my name, I feel it weight like a soft pain

 

I'm afraid of having you, I'm afraid of needing anything

I fear the ignorance that comes with bliss

I fear the ignorance that comes with bliss

 

I fear the ignorance that comes with bliss

I fear the ignorance that comes with bliss

I fear the ignorance that comes with bliss

I fear the innocence will flee my flesh

Hold Me DOwn

I'll take you in long strides, I'll teach you my night rhymes

deny me just three times, I won't forget the mess or your red face

just help me to speak slow, grip down my hips when I feel low

my dirt black fathers, I'll find a different way

my dirt black fathers, none of them were saved

 

but I still yell at the moon

I'm close to making it a song

I'm close to learning where I went wrong

I'm close to learning where I go wrong

 

hold me down,

hold me down

 

I waited for you to see, I wanted for there to be bones in my wood floor

things unsaid and feelings I'd died for

just help to speak slow, grip down my hips when I feel low

my dirt black fathers, I'll find a different way

my dirt black fathers, I'll teach them how to pray

 

but I still yell at the moon

I'm close to making it a song

I'm close to learning where I went wrong

I'm close to learning where I go wrong

 

hold me down,

hold me down
