Lyrics

Butterfly Eyes

I couldn't say if things have changed
I just know that I don't feel the same
The night is gone, and the morning shines
You've helped me leave the darkness behind

But it never goes away
And it flies with me
Through everything I see

Your butterfly eyes
Your hands holding me
And you'll sigh again
And breathe quietly

The candles burn and the room is lit
Yet there is no answer fit
To tell you of the lights and sounds
That I can see now that you're around

Let your eyes close slowly
Your head below my chin
And sorrows wearing thin

Your butterfly eyes
Your hands holding me
And you'll sigh again
And breathe quietly

I screamed at my god
And fell to my knees
And you held me close
I knew that you could see
Me

Your butterfly eyes
Your hands holding me
And you'll sigh again
And breathe quietly

 

I Only Walk In The Rain

I wasn't lonely here
And I wasn't held down here
But I walked anyway
But I walked anyway

I met a man down there
He held me in his stare
And I couldn't look away
I had nothing to say

He said "listen carefully,
And keep your eyes on me.
I've seen it all, I broke through the wall
In order to be free,
In order to be free."

And now it's been agreed
I will not concede
I only come around
To get what I need.

But I had to move on
He never knew I was gone
No, I just walked away,
I had nothing left to say

Though I'm still so void of form,
I'm just wandering in the storm,
And no words can persuade,
Or teach me their ways,
I'm waiting for my dawn,
I'm waiting for my dawn.

And now it's been agreed
I will not concede
I only come around
To get what I need.

Now I'm still on the road,
And I'm still tired and slowed,
I only walk in the rain
I only walk in the rain

I've lost nothing on the way,
I've only now gone astray,
And I know that too soon,
It's my afternoon,
I only walk in the rain
I only walk in the rain
I only walk in the rain.

 

Somewhere By The Sea

Let's not leave the house today
I have some things I want to say
The comfort from the pictures on the wall

You have a smile like smoke, I try
To grasp it but it slips and I
Would like to hold it and then I'd feel tall

But it strays from my hands
And runs through them like sand
It keeps me going, keeps me going
But I know that someday it will change

And now the window's open wide
The room is lit by fairy lights
And I could stay here for a thousand years

And sometimes when you don't feel sad
It feels like nothing I've ever had
And there is nothing that I need to say

A bottle my grasp
I'm emptying it fast
It keeps me going, keeps me going
And I know that's never gonna change

And this was just something we never said
And nobody knows
And nobody knows how it saved me
Somewhere by the sea
In a way you've come back home
Home to me

 

Tides

It's quiet here, we're drifting by
A stack of books near where we lie
The stars shine through a window at our side
A yellow light that bathes the street
The grass against my soaking feet
Nowhere is just somewhere where we hide

And gathering speed
The patterns that have filled my eyes
Have left and I am nearly blind
But I still see you
In case we're lost forevermore
I can't change this now

Over and over is it?
You were understated
And I could not ignore
The way you rub your eyes

We spent a day inside our minds
And laugh at everything we find
Shouting at my stomach in the street
It warped our minds, but some things stayed
While everything was rearranged
I couldn't help but love the way you sleep

The wolf at the door
With you curled up on the floor
He doesn't come 'round anymore
We beat him back down
In rosy-minded, lazy days
The best I've ever have had

The tide comes in, the tide goes out
Remember when we had some doubt
A time we can forget about
The tide comes in the tide goes out

 

Tunnel

It's never desperate when I miss you
No longer frantic or strange is my mind
This is hard to find
Blast the air out in a vacuum
Leave a silence behind
In a fire is where I can tire

I don't want to be gone
I just don't want to be wrong

It's the turnaround in a tunnel
It's the point of no return
Watch it burn
And you will learn
You will learn

And so long to my sunrise
It's never been at my side
For too long but it's kept me strong

I don't want to be gone
I just don't want to be wrong

It's the turnaround in a tunnel
It's the point of no return
Watch it burn
And you will learn
You will learn
