Track Name: Indienne
you flew into my room
the paper on the wall
began to move and form the moon
sliding with your hands behind my knees
grasping foreign things
pin on the wings

lean into me
will your hands go numb as we pass carefully
beyond the sea
the air that you breathe
you've chosen on your own
i'll never share it with you
but the sea is blue

i saw you throwing stones
from the balcony into the water down below
give it up we're better without words
we'll stare them down
into the ground

lean into me
will your hands go numb as we pass carefully
beyond the sea
the air that you breathe
you've chosen on your own
i'll never share it with you
but the sea is blue

let the giants come
our work here
our work here is already done
look here look below
we'll fight them off
fight them into the snow
Track Name: Edie and the Indigo Kite
it's all in your back and she likes it
and in your voice she hears her name
there's no other reason for it
but to feel her hands and feel her veins
her knees have met the floor
hey hey
the glow shines through the door
hey hey

indigo kite flying at night
the rags tied around our arms
chase the wind in the field's skin
take me with you
flower bombs grew
into vines around our house
when you sat here
when you bled here

it's all in your back and she likes it
and in your voice she hears her name
there's no other reason for it
but to feel her hands and feel her veins
her knees have met the floor
hey hey
the glow shines through the door
hey hey

indigo kite flying at night
the rags tied around our arms
chase the wind in the field's skin
take me with you
flower bombs grew
into vines around our house
when you sat here
when you bled here

can you undo what's done
to make your hands become
lighter than dust or air
leaving your prints to swear

so you think you know
they've told you so
all of the voices shouting
inject the color in my dreams
so that the light starts pouring
Track Name: 2153
the rainwear in your closet's gone
the mess you've made has been here to long
younger
bring it young girl
your boots come dragging in the cold
we move at the same pace we know
younger
bring it young girl

you left me here to think about
the things we said the things we'd shout
younger
bring it young girl
taken by the magazines
of queens and dreams and wooden things
younger
bring it young girl
bring it young girl

watch your step
watch the way you move outside of the light
look into the mirror
make sure you'll do it just right
open the door
tell them you're ready for tonight
come here
come here
