about

New album Away out Tues Sept 23rd.

lyrics

i started drinking coffee cause i liked the taste.
now i find i'm addicted to caffeine
so is looooooove
i may not ever be able to bring back what has been

so ill work it out solo
find a way on my own
wrap myself up in something hemingwayan
and go swimming in the nearest ocean

what are these invisible strings attached to
that lead from my heart up to the clouds
they make it so some days i can't do anything
and at the worst times i cant tie my heart down

so ill work it out solo
find a way on my own
wrap myself up in something hemingwayan
and go swimming in the nearest ocean

tonight i find i can tear my skin away
and there you are behind my sternum
i wonder woul dit be possible to pull myself into myself
or would i find myself inside out

i find the time it take for me to write a poem
is the time that i could use to speak to you
and the time that it takes to read a novel
is the time that i could use to be a friend

my head and heart are running two different races
and heading in opposite directions
i wonder if i can stay in one piece
and not have to sacrifice emotion

i find the time it take for me to write a poem
is the time that i could use to speak to you
and the time that it takes to read a novel
is the time that i could use to be a friend

SO IS LOVE!
