Ask

Forgive me for everything I've done
And what I'm about to do in the name of love
If you're my age maybe you'll understand
But right now is when you do what you can
At 23 can you give me something to feed my insecurities, I'm just a fiend for tragic words
If my skin was made to bleed I'll gladly give up all that you need, just promise me you'll love me when I'm 24

Oh ask me, are you looking for someone to love you tonight?

You're fool proof, you're silver and gold
I wish you could look past the fact that I do what I'm told
I make plans and I hold up the rules
Black and white don't scare me, but grey is new
And I've been meek, tender and mild just as much as you'll always be wild, please hear me when I say we can be good
Though we're so far apart in mind, a match like this is hard to find, you asked me if I could stay and I wished I could

The Star

I used to dream about the planets, a cosmic lullaby
I used to pray at my bed, for a heavenly answer to my cries

There’s nothing that the universe can do for broken boys and girls, 
I’ll never get any closer to the sun

If I want more than Earth can give, I’ll have to admit I want it all
But gravity has got a hold on me, and stars are dead long before they fall

I’m here to say i couldn’t make it, I couldn’t ever break through
So at my death, if you could take them, I’ve left my dreams here just for you

If you want more than Earth can give, You’ll have to admit you want it all
And when gravity takes hold, you’ll see, that stars are dead long before they fall

Oh I was dead long before they saw

Kingdom Come

Solemn, poor princes
You come to me tonight
To tell me all your woeful tales

Robes all a glitter, 
Crowns snug, rings tight
You ache with every slow inhale

But thrones you seek in dreams
They’ll do no more than gleam
And earth can offer no more than dirt

And coin is much the same
It’s a poison it’s a shame
You’ll die and leave the gold inside your purse

Take hold of my words
Every promise every curse
And rule forever knowing of your fate

Oh when they kiss your ring
Make you feel your sovereignty
Take heed for after it hits every vein

It goes away

You’ve got your courage
Every blade that’s in your sight
It’s best to put your parchment to flame

Let go of your turrets
Your servants and your spite
Watch your kingdom go to waste

For every song you sing
Is louder than common screams
If it’s madness, your likeness will still end up in stone

And if enemies are keen
They’ll continue your decree
To slip into a fury all their own

Soft Mouth

Tell them your lips are soft
As petals
A noble cause
If i could say i would
But i’d have wrought

Are these simple instances
How many lost in your canvases
I’ve prayed don’t let me
Love please God

Would mary have given up
Kisses flesh and more than blood
If angel wings had inklings just to touch

Oh barren hearts so palpable
If you would keep me
Vulnerable
My fate is yours and also his

And all because of those soft lips

Protect

You’ve walked on harder stones
Remember where you are
You’ve set out your own course
Following the stars

How far you go
We go
There’s no turn
We can’t hold

No map or constellation
Takes us from your side
Let us bring you to Heaven
Let us be your guide

Pray for us
We are your light
If they don’t make you mine
Oh we know how to fight
We will protect you

Eager

it's wednesday Night/thursday Morning
I've got acne cream on my face
I've waited ten years to tell you this
but there was never a good time or place
I'm so eager to let you make me cry again

it's wednesday night/thursday morning
and your number is still on speed dial
I've had 16 shots of jager and you know i'm gonna give it a try
I'm so eager to let you make me lie again

it's wednesday night/thursday morning
and i'm trying to fuck up
whether it's embarrassing my mother or just plain messing up
i'm so eager to let you make me die again
