Track Name: Jaws of Love.
Jaws of Love.

In the jaws of love, hold me tighter
In the jaws of love, tear me apart
It’s so hard to know what you should focus on
How high you’re rising, or how hard you fall.

In the jaws of love, you remember
In the jaws of love, you can’t forget
Where you were when you first were lifted up
When you knew that you’d have to surrender.

Ain’t it the life?
Ain’t it what you wanted?
Track Name: Hawaiian License Plates.
All night running wild
Swore we’d do it right
Leave it all behind.
Release all that guilt
Every drink is gonna spill
Just a little.

Your love is all I need
Your love is all I need
When I can’t face the actions of
A world I don’t believe
Your love is all I see.

I saw through the rain
All Hawaiian plates
Are a number short
Well I don’t think there are
Islands small enough
For the both of us.
Track Name: Lake Tahoe.
I put the red brick door-stop on the pedal of the piano
so that it rings out every note
You said you wanted to get away, well we’re here and you still wanna run away, what are you running from?

Look out the window, all our friends are gone.
They’re at the lake all singing to stay warm.
They’re going like, “Oh oh oh oh oh”
They give it all to be on fire.

Can’t you feel it floating through the air?
Grab it and don’t let go.
Hold it and then you’ll know what it feels like to be young and know nothing.
Fill your lungs up with something.

I get a laugh when I try to have you repeat what you think is Spanish.
I record it on my phone.
We start a fire and can’t believe how many stars are outside of the city,
We become amateur astronomers.

Look out the window, all our friends are gone.
Feels like forever that we’ve been alone.
We’re going like, “Oh oh oh oh oh”
We give it all to be on fire.
Track Name: Microwaves
I called out your name
You had your headphones on
So when I thought my whole world was lost
I forgot you always say
Don’t look down.

Laid in the backseat of my car
Cedars-Sinai garage
Through the phone I heard you say,
“Repeat after me:
Don’t look down.”

We are always pretending
The other would rather
Be alone and suffering
Like we’re staring at microwaves
We know it’s too easy
To pretend that when we fight
We think we’re right but it’s a lie
Cause we would die
Without us.

I don’t know
I don’t know where the flower grows
(no no I don't know)
I’m only subservient
To the powers around me
(all I know is when I look into your eyes)
All I know is I love ya
(then I know)
I love ya
(then I know).
Track Name: Shrink...
We’re sown into the past
With the strongest thread
And I know how to cut it
But I don’t bother
I don’t bother
I don’t bother
I don’t bother
I don’t.

Keep it to yourself
’Til you explode.

We’re sown into the past
We’re sown into the past
Again.
Track Name: Everything.
I see your face
You had no calls for a week and you’re
Counting the fingerprints on your phone
While everyone else
Is alive in the place that no one told you to go.

We’re crawling past
A crumpled heap of metal that is
decorated with blue and red lights
And I heard you say,
“If we’re all gonna die than it doesn’t mean anything.”

Doesn’t that make it mean everything?
Doesn’t that make it mean everything to us?
Doesn’t it make you want everything?
Before they take away everything from us?

Doesn’t it make you want everyone
That you have ever loved something they know?
Doesn’t it make you feel anything
Is better than feeling nothing at all?
Track Name: Love Me Like I'm Gone.
I’m always thinking of you
When I’m up this high
I see me at your funeral
I see you at mine
I get embarrassed and rub my eyes
This always happens every flight
I see the plane going down
Counting the seconds of my life.

I want you to love me like I’m gone
The way that I love you when you’re gone.

I fast forward five years
Got the place that we wanted
You’re on the veranda painting
Early morning, blurry eyes
I knock the vase off the shelf
Dog jumps, baby cries
You just smile cause you know
That things can break but we stay alive.
Track Name: Before the Hurting Lands.
I’m leaving you today
I’m packing all my years away
And I’m not even close
So I’ve got to go.

Before
The hurting lands.

I’m believing it will fade away
As my pockets start to lose their weight
And I’m as light as a balloon
Rising high, naming rivers on the moon.
Track Name: Costa Rica.
Why don’t you believe me when I say, “I love you”?
Why don’t you believe me when I say, “I care”?
I’ve spent so much time with you
How could I not care about you?
As if blood was just as thick as the air
I know you’re smart
And you know that’s not fair.

So why don’t you believe me when I say, “I love you”?
And that all you need to see is that I’ll always be there
If I did something to hurt you
How could I have ever meant to?
So poison helps to numb all the pain?
I know you’re smart
And you know that’s not fair.

There’s a picture of me saving you
From the tide in Costa Rica
And I know if we’d been switched
You would do the same for me.
Track Name: Nightlight.
In dreams we find
All we’ve ever wanted
Between flying cars
And being on your favorite TV shows
We get what we want
We get what we want
Until the bars let out
And you realize you’re waking up.

I’m your nightlight
When every creak is out to tell you
You’re not where you thought
I’ll be here to help you
You get what you want
You get what you want
So you can lie back down
And know that I’m the one that you can count on.

You know that I’m the one that you can count on
You know that I’m the one that you can count on.

I’m your nightlight
I’m your nightlight.
