ensign

itís getting colder, iím getting pale
youíre asking questions i wouldnít dare
the floor is creaking beneath my feet
youíre so enlightened itís killing me

can hardly hear you from on the floor
your hesitation is my reward
you want an answer from me tonight
i couldnít tell you to save my life

why weíre even hear after all this time
iíll never understand, youíll never realize

in our reflection i can see
you look so lonely next to me
you always swept it underneath

why weíre even hear after all this time
iíll never understand, youíll never realize

in our reflection i can see
you look so lonely next to me
you always swept it underneath

and itís getting very near the end
and iím wondering what it might have been
if you believe in that sort of thing you ought to know
iím pulling backÖ and letting go

sweet and ordinary

lies are sweet and ordinary
listen closely youíll hear it in me

find my way back so i can downsize
stayed up so late i could hear the sun rise
be it quiet be it soon 
when you sleep take my penance
make me guilty

in your bed beneath my room
the water quickly covers you
slowly i regain some feeling 
my hands are blue my fingers bleeding

lies are sweet and ordinary

in your bed beneath my room
the water quickly covers you
slowly i regain some feeling 
my hands are blue my fingers bleeding

it all comes down

it all comes down to what i never said
when iím breaking your heart just like you broke my head
you said i could believe you still but i didnít then
and it all comes down to what has never been

so you set me down into a padded cell
all i get today is a little taste of hell
you let me to believe you so you could shut me out
and now you rest assured beyond a show of doubt

can i fall apart in your tired willing arms?
i lack the courage to admit you were ever wrong
do i seem afraid when you turn the other way?
from everything I do that comes back around again

a little while

iíve taken every word you say to me with of grain of salt
and itís not just your fault anymore
if you would have thought back way before it all went bad
you might have taken to heart the things we had

thatís enough from me for a little while
not that you could see through a sorry smile
and in case you canít tell youíve broken this shell of me

iím taking every word you say to me with of grain of salt
because itís not just my fault anymore
if you would have known me way before it all went bad
you might have taken to thought the things we had

thatís enough from me for a little while
not that you could see through a sorry smile
and in case you canít tell youíve broken this shell of me

if i had a shred of compassion for your aching head, you might feel older
holding you so dear like angel in the stratosphere could be my only hope

tuesday morning


written by Nick Barber
with Rose Blossom Punch
what do you think of
in your room at night while eyes turned over 
and wonder through night skies

do you stay up
and stare at glowing wires
youíve said it now 
the moonís gone and left me alone

did you even notice that those words were in my heart
could have stayed forever in this word of joy and
i wonít be long now
i donít belong

so alone, alone
i know itís wrong
i waited an hour for you

recall the memory of one dream
where all i wanted was 
ice cream and caramel wings

did you even notice that those words were in my heart
could have stayed forever if you werenít apart
didnít know i waited for this day to end up right where we started
but i know it wonít

so alone, alone (to see against the wind, i wonít)
i know itís wrong (but i wonít pray)
i waited an hour for you (itís falling down around, like me)

i canít stop wondering
and i wonít sleep knowing
iíll wake

sleepily

  quietly i drown myself in dreams
to find it all iíve taken liberty to fall asleep
wanting everything

if you awake to find itís all the same
iíll try again 
i swear iíll try again to fall asleep
wanting everything
just to be completely free

at least believe thereís something else this time
you know youíll find me here asleep under this spell
whoíll notice?
iím wondering myself

now you gaze between love and despair
itís hard to see a look become a prayer to fall asleep
wanting everything
just to be completely free

at least believe thereís something else this time
you know youíll find me here asleep under this spell
whoíll notice?
iím wondering myself

all at once it occurred to me:
itís the way that iíll ever be
well never mind 
what i meant to say was along the lines of making you stay
and i whisper this as you walk away
"at least believe in me"

at least believe thereís something else this time
you know youíll find me here asleep under this spell
whoíll notice?
iím wondering myself
