A phantom drifting through my door, she took all the warmth away I am only death my child, you don’t need to be afraid She was covered in a long black cloak when I let her in Standing there in the darkness I saw the light within Death is a teacher every time i see her I’m letting someone go Still i receive her when she’s at my door I greet her with my head hung low And when i’m afraid she lights up the stage Her whispers they lead me home Death is a teacher, every time I see her I wonder how long it will be til I go Shadows on my face are gone, but I can’t stop calling out And every time I lose a friend I get a new stripe on my belt I’ve come to understand that forever is a long long time And no matter what I learn I’m lost when she arrives Death is a teacher every time i see her I’m letting someone go Still i receive her when she’s at my door I greet her with my head hung low And when i’m afraid she lights up the stage Her whispers they lead me home Death is a teacher, every time I see her I wonder how long it will be til I go I close my eyes, I cannot see And darkness, she’s surrounding me Death is a teacher every time i see her I’m letting someone go Still i receive her when she’s at my door I greet her with my head hung low And when i’m afraid she lights up the stage Her whispers they lead me home Death is a teacher, every time I see her I wonder how long it will be til I go

I’m older now And I don’t mind the things that used to cut my crown at least that’s something time brings You gave it to me better than anybody else But it’s now or never And someone has to drown Any way the rain goes, lets water inside Any way the rain goes inside I would stop if I could turn it off I need you and your love when Im lost Can’t stop, heart is falling I’m in mourning And i’ve gotta turn it off can’t stop with your heart I just can’t turn it off 
I’m sober now Still I can’t believe That it’s over now And everything you’ve done for me Was wasted on a feeling and i gave no meaning to our love when I could not explain Any way the rain goes, lets water inside Any way the rain goes inside But I’m always lost.. (you know that I’m always lost) But I’m always lost
And I never want to turn it off I’m older now and I don’t mind the things that used to cut my crown at least that’s something time brings You gave it to me better than anybody else But it’s now or never And someone has to drown I would stop if I could turn it off I need you and your love when Im lost Can’t stop, heart is falling I’m in mourning And i’ve gotta turn it off can’t stop with your heart I just can’t turn it off

Always brittle always blue Tell me is your mind on fire Were you thinking we were through Locking eyes with no desire I know to save this we might have to lose it all But it would take this to the grave for you If to prove at all, I see through the wall You say baby are you done? Cos this space is growing old And I’m not the only one Looking for the love I sold I know to save this we might have to lose it all But it would take this to the grave for you If to prove at all, I see through the wall I know to save this we might have to lose it all But it would take this to the grave for you If to prove at all That know to save this we might have to lose it all But it would take this to the grave for you If to prove at all I see through the wall I see through the wall I see through it all

Blue Home 04:18
There's a storm coming in, grab your coat I've found my shelter and I won't let go There's a girl in the sky And she calls your name You hear the thunder but you don't feel the rain and then You hurt me in the room You hurt me from a’far The sky is moving There'll be no more stars All of the tales that we would always read I never stopped listening so They ‘came a part of me Let me be your girl inside our blue blue home Let me be your girl inside our blue blue home A blue house is not a home seasons of torment and heart-break alone Everything's distorted That's what you told me Heart on the floor Cos you would never hold me You better not be cry When you call out my name I've been on a hard road You don't know the pain The way is twisted but I'm twisted too So let’s celebrate insanity Just me and you Let me be your girl inside our blue blue home Let me be your girl inside our blue blue home Dreams will leave the room Dreams will leave the room Dreams will leave the room I know one day Dreams will leave the room Dreams will leave the room Dreams will leave the room Coming up to sunrise, waiting here outside For the words to come For my heart to hide Waiting for the countdown Waiting for the gun Waiting for the shadows I’m waiting for the sun Waiting for the fire I’m waiting for the air Wait for me darling I’m almost there Waiting for my life I’m waiting for my death here All this time I’ve been waiting so just Let me be your girl inside our blue blue home Let me be your girl inside our blue blue home Let me be your girl inside our blue blue home Let me be your girl inside our blue blue home

Worse Things 04:00
I take comfort in the cold hard truth of it I take comfort in the getting over myself of it When I let my pride drive I end up on the edge of the ledge Take cover down below When somebody else’s rising up feels like I fell When somebody’s ocean overflowing dries up my well I look to justice, she tells me to go to hell and try to see Way worse things have happened To way better people than me It’s a big sky hanging there right over my head Oh big sky keep letting me know Instead of crying me a river, bringing in the violins Take comfort in the panorama When somebody else’s rising up feels like I fell When somebody’s ocean overflowing dries up my well I look to justice, she tells me to go to hell and so I can see Way worse things have happened To way better people than me It’s a little sky, a little sky Looking through small frames Who am I, who am I? Crying me a river, crying me a river when Way worse things have happened To way better people than me (Way better people than me) When somebody else’s rising up feels like I fell When somebody’s ocean overflowing dries up my well I look to justice, she tells me to go to hell where I can see Way worse things have happened To way better people Way worse things have happened To way better people Way worse things have happened To way better people than me Than me

You look sad in the morning As the shadows start falling My portrait of a lady on fire All the paint has stopped drying Its years been years now I’m still hiding This portrait of a lady on fire I made my bed in the dark and I feel fine I can see the dawn I’ve been moving on in my foolish mind I must have painted her a thousand times The colors form and she is all I ever find This portrait of a lady This portrait of a lady on fire Fire Was that look worth the ending? Are you here now or pretending? We must live with these choices I wish I’d met you long before this This portrait of a lady on fire I made my bed in the dark and I feel fine I can see the dawn I’ve been moving on in my foolish mind I must have painted her a thousand times The colors form and she is all I ever find This portrait of a lady I love this portrait of a lady On fire, fire, fire, fire I made my bed in the dark and I feel fine I can see the dawn I’ve been moving on in my foolish mind I must have painted her a thousand times The colors form and she is all I ever find This portrait of a lady I love this portrait of a lady on fire

I hide these habits well Friends are too high too see The way that I’m walking out They don’t know our history I walk like a solider to my own defeat Another year older, and I don’t want to be Saying give me something good Tell me what you want to see I don’t feel what I should Now you’re telling me on New Years Eve Nothing lasts forever And maybe I don’t want to see that it isn’t getting better 
I’m coming down on New Years eve Saying give me something good You hide your madness well ‘Cos everyone’s drunk and free I know things aren’t working out That’s why you keep telling me Go out with your friends So I’d stumble home at three but in my defense you weren’t waiting for me Give me something good Tell me what you want to see I don’t feel what I should Now you’re telling me on New Years Eve Nothing lasts forever And maybe I don’t want to see that it isn’t getting better 
I’m coming down on New Years eve Saying give me something good (Give me something, give me something) Give me something good (Give me something, give me something) Oh, give me something Give me something good Or tell me what you want to see I was hoping that I could ‘Cos you’ve always been enough for me But nothing lasts forever And maybe I don’t want to see that it isn’t getting better 
Now I’m begging you on New Years Eve Give me something good (Give me something, give me something) Give me something good (Give me something, give me something) Oh give me something good (Give me something, give me something) Give me something, just give me something Give me something good

Who you gonna spend your dark Sunday with Or will you wait alone as your dark thoughts unfold Will it feel like the end when no one understands What will set free from your dark Sunday dream Grey clouds in the sky Dead leaves on the ground It’s a new world to discover when Dark Sunday comes around The rivers in your eyes Run down into the light A new world waiting for you on the other side What colors will you see in your Dark Sunday Dream Will they all be black and white when the sadness does arrive Some days you feel like your on top of the world You feel like nothing at all could ever drag your heart down And then you’ll wake and feel so cold inside your bones so far from being found Grey clouds in the sky Dead leaves on the ground It’s a new world to discover when Dark Sunday comes around The rivers in your eyes Run down into the light A new world waiting for you on the other side Now what, what will set you free From this dark Sunday dream what will set you free I know you’re not where you wanna be And sometimes life can seem like one long dark Sunday dream Grey clouds in the sky Dead leaves on the ground It’s a new world to discover when dark Sunday comes around The rivers in your eyes Run down into the light A new world waiting for you on the other side

Floating through a bed of cloud I sit with this grief ‘though I will never understand it And every demon has it’s teeth I can hear the guns singing and it echos in my ears Tell myself not to take cover in this apathy and fear Look up, be strong the world is beautiful from here but you can’t forget where you came from Look down, you belong to the love that still lives here it’s time to face the fear and take your song Ha ha, Ha ha Ha-a Ha, Ha, ha Ha-a ha, Ha ha Ha-a Ha There were many other colors But we descended through the blue And I saw my sister waving But there was nothing I could do Look up, be strong the world is beautiful from here but you can’t forget where you came from Look down, you belong to the love that still lives here it’s time to face the fear and take your song Ha ha, Ha ha Ha-a Ha, Ha, ha Ha-a ha, Ha ha Ha-a Ha Floating through a bed of cloud I sit with this grief
