You Run

ChiChiMiMi This is probably not usual type of music I normally listen. But the melody came to my ear like air and now I am listen to the album at house, in the car (singing), at work. Siren is my favourite song and melody, I think it's very clever how the tone changes in the middle of the song. Crack & Break is probably my next favourite - made me realise how banjo sounds beautiful. Thank you xx
Favorite track: Siren.

Beast 02:48
War against me, dear Drink my fires, starve me still Dimming the light to feel our scars up close You’re burning now It’s so sweet, how you lie Waiting for a blind angel, to take your hand It’s a long way to fall, if you’re looking up But you‘ve found some peace Down to a place Where you’ll feed your beast You’ve learned to love this kind of sadness Torn between rage and calm The bottle holds you, in a place without fear The scent lingers, your hands shake Your eyes say nothing I haven’t heard before
Leaving a hole, here for now You look at me with a simple face Sinking through silence I pray for noise Wait for the words to burn Pour me a drink of your thoughts Toast to the fate we’ve settled for One mangled promise, we chose to keep Wait for the light to fade Look away, for my sake How much more will you take Hold me to rest through the night Swallow the dust left on our lips Without a fear of drifting Let me fall into a new dream I could stop, for your sake Breathe in slow, crack and break
You Run 02:59
You run Like sand between fingers Your voice slaps cold Against my cheek And I clench my fist Ready to swing But I see that you're too weak I bite Back my breath You're not worth the air. I swallow my pride like a key I'll light the match and walk away I’ll let you burn and I’ll sleep well You think that you know me so well We do what we must dear, you never can tell You reached through the insides, but that wasn’t me I saw a new creature, let’s bury it deep I still can’t look you in the eyes Without grinding my teeth
Water's Edge 03:41
When I feel you start to shake, fingers raw Slow drop from sickness, sleep more in head than body Waiting without a wound to show I’ll hold you this time, if you promise not to look Should I save you from yourself Or hide in silence from the signs Somewhere beneath the skin and blood I wonder if we ever saw past our first gods If only I could close our book, so tightly Tie up all loose ends, and never have to speak I bring you to the water’s edge, for us to plunge I cannot breathe but oh the scene, is so perfect with you here I wait for you to find me And speak in tongues we used to know Engulf yourself with what you wish Forget the silence ever ate us alive
Know Me 02:29
Bring us to our knees You think you know best Cling to who you trust In bubbles we live I don’t want to show too much I don’t want you to know me Screams are held inside Growing just the same Under someone’s god The rest must obey Cold hands take my own Praying for life He is free to roam This body’s not mine I don’t want to show too much I don’t want you to know me
February 00:39
Oh how I’d wrap my arms around you Oh I could never quite reach Oh how you showed me all of your heart I was meant to see
Bolten Abbey 02:29
Siren 02:33
You pour a cup into my hands Let the light fill the room The air fills our lungs, been a while since we’ve breathed Tilt your face, to see mine Can you tell, something’s changed The time you threw away Lies broken, draining slowly You say you’ve seen these stars before All mine, have been hidden Did I drop them off along the way Or is light slowly fading Street sounds so loud when you’re trying to take it in And remember the sound of your siren
Silence comes with gentle hands, I’ll let you lead me down stand up straight and take your arm, I will not make a sound Listen to our echoes, I used to know when you were a lie Kiss me slow and beat me quick, standing down with grace Pick the pieces from the fall, are you worth the taste? Holding my head under Until you feel you’ve used me enough
Lightning 04:27
To save his life We cut right through the bone And stop the beat the breath you've always known Rearrange the wires of the soul that carries you Keep yourself from sinking Cause there's more still yet to come We wander through the halls, to keep our heads And watch his mind outrun, his failing lungs The rooms that we hide in, when we're told that there's no hope Keep yourself from sinking Cause there's more still yet to come We want the unexpected to stay uneventful It's unbelievable How lightning keeps striking all in one place We're here for you my dear, this place is kind Death will never wait for the right time Never have I listened for the timing of a breath Keep yourself from sinking Cause there's more still yet to come
How We Grow 03:04
I’m moving too much I’m thinking too far and now even love is hard to show in truth We should know This is not how we grow Close your eyes Breathe in sleep I know you need it more than time itself We should know This is not how we grow
