Track Name: like poetry
you are like the world to me
you are like a summer breeze
you are like a red, red rose
and every cheesy simile

every time you touch my hand
you feel like a first dance
you feel like a waterfall, a waterfall, an avalanche



I need you to know when you come this close
it's unbearable i am romeo what light through yonder window breaks
what you do to me
it's insanity
it's like poetry


something in the way you do
i feel like im langston hughes
i feel like i'm lucille clifton
maya fucking angelou

something in the way you look
make me wanna write a book
make me wanna write some po-e-try
when i should stick to writin hooks

I need you to know when you come this close
it's unbearable i am romeo what light through yonder window breaks
what you do to me
it's like chemistry
it's like poetry

I look into your eyes
and the whole world ends
you are the sweetest dream
but dreams never make sense
i fantasize in cursive
and everything i do
im in rapture trying to capture all
the poetry of you

every time you say my name
i am like the pulsing vein
i am like the fire wood
you are like burst of flames

every time you touch my hips. GIRL.
i am like a clenching fist
you are like a bonfire a bonfire the catalyst

I need you to know when you come this close
it's unbearable i am romeo what light through yonder window breaks
what you do to me
it's insanity
it's like poetry. Like poetry.
Track Name: lighthouse
Your love insists
Your light persists
Across the water
i see your face in every wave
across the water

you pull me close
you know me like
no one knows
i see your eyes
they show their light
across the water

you pull so hard
you pull my heart
across the water
you're all i see
but you can't see me.

Cuz you only lead me on.
let go, let go
and your light it pulls so hard
let go, let go
I could break upon your shores
you're not ready for this love.


you just don't get
how hard this is
when we're apart it breaks my heart

Cuz you only lead me on.
let go, let go
and your light it pulls so hard
let go, let go
I could break upon your shores
you're not ready for this love.
Track Name: rain water
She taste like rain water.
She taste like California Sky.
She's got the sun on her tongue.
She got the ocean in her eyes.

She taste like rain water.
She takes the thunder from the sky.
She's got a drum on her tongue.
And I can tell the way she sighs

I'll die tonight if I can't feel this right now
She's light, light strikes, let the rain come down
down, down, down.

Ooh she taste like rain water.
She taste like soil and spring
and green
she is the sky's daughter
she is the rain that falls for me.

She taste like rain water.
She is the earth, the breeze, the sky.
She takes the moon on her tongue.
So full it makes me want to cry.

I'll die tonight if I can't feel this right now
She's light, light strikes, let the rain come down
down, down, down.

Let it come, let it come down
Let it come, let come come down.
Let it come, let it come down
Let it come, let come come down.

She taste like rain water.
Track Name: don't go
she
hates when i smoke cigarettes
i tried to quit for her i guess
i never managed to
they say it takes three days to clean
your system of the nicotine
how long's it take for you

i am afraid but
somewhere i know
you won't be happy until you go
my lips betray me
i never meant to say

don't go
don't go
don't go
don't go

sleep
she doesn't keep me company
she never was that fond of me
anyway
now
everyday is like a dream
time it slips away from me
i've lost another day

i am afraid
you will forget
i ever made you smile like this
my lips betray me
i never meant to say

don't go
don't go
don't go
don't go no no please

don't go
don't go
don't go
don't go

love
just before she drove away
she never looked at me that way
before
she
is crawling out of love with me
but the hole it got so deep
we've got a while to go

now that you're gone
i am afraid
you will forget all of our mistakes
my lips betray me
i beg for you to stay

don't go
don't go
don't go
don't go

don't go
don't go
don't go
don't go

they say it takes three days to clean
your system of the nicotine
how long's it take for you
