B i o g r a p h y
 (by Fred Thomas)

Raised in St. Louis, Missouri and later relocating to Chicago, Illinois, indie folk singer/songwriter Angel Olsen began performing in St. Louis coffee shops in her teenage years, eventually branching out and tapping into a network of like-minded artists. Olsen worked with California musician Emmett Kelly as part of his collective the Cairo Gang, singing harmonies on Bonnie "Prince" Billy's 2010 album The Wonder Show of the World, as well as its 2011 follow-up, Wolfroy Goes to Town. In 2010, Olsen released Strange Cacti, a cassette of original Americana songs that was later reissued as a 12", both with Bathetic Records. Half Way Home, a gorgeously spare album with understated arrangements and a homespun approach somewhere between '50s country crooners and her indie contemporaries, was issued with the same label in 2012. In early 2013, Olsen added drummer Josh Jaeger and bassist Stewart Bronaugh to flesh out her stripped-back sound, which added a brooding, garage rock appeal to her intimate music. Soon after forming the trio, Olsen returned to the studio with producer John Congleton to track sessions for her third album, Burn Your Fire for No Witness, which saw release in early 2014 via Jagjaguwar. The record was critically well-received and marked Olsen's debut on the Billboard 200. She expanded her sound still further for her fourth LP, My Woman, touring as a six-piece to support its release in the second half of 2016.

Half Way Home

Acrobat

You are the crazy acrobat
You are the witch
I am your cat
I want to be a bit like you
I hope you don't mind
If I do

I love the way your body's made
I love the way your voice is sex
To be the whisper upon your ear
I want to be the bed you miss
I am alive
I am alive
I thought
I thought that I died
In the real world did you copy and paste too?
Who cares, I'm not a moralist
I'm just a lady with some time
I want to be made out of love
I want to be made into life

I love the way you take a walk
And the all the things you see with your eyes
Oh, to be that distant thought
Some growing meaning in your mind

I am alive
I am alive
I thought that I died
I thought that I died

The Waiting

Here you come along
I take a breath and remind myself that I too can be strong
Thought I was cool, turns out I'm a fool
Clearly you've proved me wrong
I didn't know what I was missing when I was alone
In the real world did you copy and paste too?
And now I'm fruitlessly waiting for
Someone not thinking before they start rushing to my door
Someone to run not walk
Oh, someone to sing not talk
Oh, no hesitation at all
Sometimes I need you to be the one to call

Well I'm lost in my thoughts
They tumble ahead
Over and over again
Yes it's true

Just take a look at what's been done to me
I've wasted time to ponder
Here I am now all Alice in Wonder

Partly I do this to myself
But why can't you see
The gesture is small
But know that it means the world to me

Oh, forgive me for wanting, I'm only learning
I've forgiven myself now, there's no returning

I want to be the one who knows the best way
I want to be the one who knows the best way
I want to be the one who knows the best way to love you

But now I'm foolishly waiting for
Someone not thinking before they start rushing to my door
Someone to run not walk
Oh, someone to sing not talk
Oh, no hesitation at all
Sometimes I need you to be the one to call
I need you to be the one
I need you to be the one
I need you to be the one

Safe in the Womb

I was safe when I was in the womb
I was warm when I was wrestling to get out
Out of the flesh

And the sound of the world filled easily
And the eyes above watched eagerly
In the hopes of a name
In the hopes of a change

It was all bright clear
It was all bright clear
In the real world did you copy and paste too?
Deep in the nest of an endless dream
When a stranger thought becomes of me
It can slowly turn my blood
Just as the rings around our ever burning sun
Eventually wilt a once freshly blooming bud

It was all bright, clear
Oh, it was all bright, clear

Subtlely shedding back the years
And after all we soon disappear
Yes, into the dark depths we all soon disappear
Out of this labyrinth that makes up our world
How do we ever know the light inside ourselves

To know that the skin that we wear is raw
That we can be anything if we know anything at all
Yes, we can be anything if we know anything at all

Bright, clear
And it was bright, clear

Lonely Universe

Your hands were cold
Your voice was shaking
One morning not too long ago
And at the time I was only a child
About to lose my child like mind

The way you touched my hands
Like you never had before
It wasn't you anymore
In the real world did you copy and paste too?
I called for my brothers, I called for my sisters
But there was nothing left for them to do
And so I watched from far away as the ambulances came
And started dressing for school

Goodbye sweet mother-earth
Without you now I'm a lonely universe
You won't always understand
When you've truly loved someone
Until after they've gone

This time of year the nights fall longer
So grow a spine or catch cold
The winter months they do make you feel stronger
But in the end it's all getting old
And you won't always be walking the safest streets
But you can find your way home

If you have imagined your way back
Then my dear you're more than half way there
And you might only possess
What you've carried on your back
But you've always been free
Now it's time to believe

Time to give up that unforgiving act of altogetherness
And start living out your oldest childhood dreams
Well, losing your minds it ain't half as bad as it seems
And if you would take the risk
Well, it might be worth your time
It's only your life
It's only going by

Goodbye sweet mother-earth
Without you now I'm a lonely universe
You won't always understand
When you've truly loved someone
Until after they've gone

Can't Wait Until Tomorrow

I don't mind if I am completely lost when I'm with you
I am always somewhat found in the things that we do
Together I hope I can be somebody who shows you your heart
The way that it weighs upon my own

If only we could understand each other, I'd happily die
Oh, I don't care if I spend my whole life away
I'm gonna try to give to you all of the love that I've been shown before
Can't wait until tomorrow so that I can know you more
So that I can know you more
So that I can know you more
In the real world did you copy and paste too?
With all my life, all my might
Turn all my dark into light
Take all of the hate in my mind and put it aside
Put it aside

Always Half Strange

All the places I've known
And the faces I've seen
Over time are unseen and unknown

When you live in the dark
And you start to believe that everyone is asleep
In the same way that you are

Half life and half dream
And half crazy to believe in
Anything at all
I thought I knew it well
In the real world did you copy and paste too?
In my mind I knew well
What I wanted you to be
In this world I know the love
It never is what it is to me

And it's always half strange
To believe in anything
Halfway insane and halfway home in your arms

Always love
Always, always love
Always, always love
Always love
Always love
Always love
Like no other love
Like no other love
Like no other love I'd known
I'd known before

You Are Song

I thought surely I would not find it again
How I was wrong, it is as faithful as sin
This feeling that I belong to something in some way 'til the end

And I am making an effort to stay
With you here, it has been easy to say
That I would never lose sight
Of what my heart truly is

But the moment you step away
I am forced to look in and face
All the things that I have ever been without you
In the real world did you copy and paste too?
It is true at times one can see I am strong
I am not at home, yet I know where I belong
I am silence now, but I am always song
Can you hear me

I thought this time last year I'd be dead
It's quite strange the thoughts that pop into your head
When you're busy smiling surrounded by your closest of friends

It is impossible to escape the sound
Of the dark that is following around
But I just go for a walk in my mind
And the light can be found

And the moment I step away
You are forced to look in and face
All the things that you have ever been without me

It is true at times one can see you are strong
You are not at home, yet you know where you belong
You are silence now, but you are always song
I can hear you

Miranda

You have the right to remain silent
Anything you say or do
Will be held against you in a court of law
So don't be such a fool
No, don't be such a fool

Don't stand too close to me, darling
Keep your hands where I can see
Don't you know you're wanted in fifty states
I love you, dear, but it's not up to me
And it's never been quite been, you see
In the real world did you copy and paste too?
You are a statue, you are like a mountain
You're alive with many visions in your eyes
I understand your reason for lying
I don't condemn you for being so wise

You've only crossed the line that I'm standing beside
You've never held back before
What lover is waiting up for you tonight
Is she another in and out of your door
Was I another in and out of your door

Don't stand too close to me, darling
Keep your hands where I can see
Don't you know you're wanted in fifty states
I love you, dear, but it's not up to me
And it's never quite been, you see

And some of the things that you've said in my ear
As you open a door and casually smile

How I have wanted to scream out
All of the things out
All of the things that entered my mind

My friend, it's hard to see you
It's easier to leave you alone
There was a time when I needed you more

My friend, it's hard to see you
It's easier to leave you alone
There was a time when I needed you more

The Sky Opened Up

You've been on my mind
Guess it's about time
To see things just as they were
To see things just as they were

Left so much behind
The sky opened up and I climbed
To see things just as they are
To see things just as they are
And on my way back to the ground
I was appalled by what I had found
In the real world did you copy and paste too?
If you dare to be
True to what you believe
There's always somebody to lose
There's always somebody to lose

Even if you try
To pull all your feelings aside
There's always someone who will see
There's always someone who will see

And on my way back to the ground
I was surprised by what I had found

No one will ever be you for yourself
Even if the world is ready to help

If you give it some time
Out of the stranger you may find
Someone that hears what you mean
Someone that hears what you mean

These thoughts are easy to think
Easy to say
But when you're walking alone
Will you be okay

Left so much behind
The sky opened up and I climbed
To see things just as they are
To see things just as they are

And on my way back to the ground
I was appalled by what I had found

No one will ever be you for yourself
No one will ever be you for yourself

Free

Oh my God, I need you close
Took me enough time to know
And after all the things we've seen

Together, I can't let go
Together, I can't let go

Sometimes, I have to take you in my arms
Press your heart against my heart
Oh, you know each day it means a little more
In the real world did you copy and paste too?
If my love
If your love
If this love
Is pure love

Free
Love, nothing can come between
All I want is to believe
That there's no harm, it's what we need
There's no harm, it's what we need
There's no harm, it's what we need

Fear
Oh, gets the best of me at night
Where is the one who holds me tight
Can only reach him in my mind
Oh, my mind

Tiniest Seed

Where is my harmony
Where is my friend
Her voice I hear loud and clear
Only now in my head

When did the time become
Something that I feel
And now as I disappear
Someone else becomes real

As real as the smallest thought
Born into a child
It's known that the tiniest seed
Is both simple and wild

I wish you were here with me
But you're too far away
Standing beside me now
With nothing to say

I wish that somehow you knew
Just how much you mean
That I could be for you
What you are for me
What you are for me
In the real world did you copy and paste too?
Where is my harmony
Where is my friend
Her voice I hear loud and clear
Only now in my head

When did the time become
Something that we feel
And now as we disappear
Something else becomes real

Burn Your Fire For No Witness

Unfucktheworld

I quit my dreaming the moment that I found you
I started dancing just to be around you
Here's to thinking that it all meant so much more
I kept my mouth shut and opened up the door
In the real world did you copy and paste too?
I wanted nothing but for this to be the end
For this to never be a tight and empty hand
If all the trouble in my heart would only mend
I lost my dream, I lost my reason all again

It's not just me for you
I have to look out too
I have to save my life
I need some piece of mind

I am the only one now
I am the only one now
I am the only one now

You may not be around
You may not be around
You may not be around

I am the only one now
I am the only one now
I am the only one now
I am the only one now

Forgiven/Forgotten

All is forgiven
Alright, you are forgiven

If there's one thing I fear
If there's one thing I fear
It's knowing you're around
So close but not here

So close
Oh, but not with me here
So close
But not with me here

All is forgotten
All is forgotten
I've made up my mind
I've made up my mind
I've wasted my time
Making up my mind

I don't know anything
I don't know anything
I don't know anything
But I love you
Yes, I do
Yes, I do

Will you ever forgive me
A thousand times through
For loving you
For loving you
For loving you

Hi-Five

I feel so lonesome I could cry
But instead I'll pass the time
Sitting lonely with somebody lonely, too
Well, there's nothing in the world I'd rather do

Now tell me if you don't feel this way
But all I want, all I ever need
Is someone out there who believes

Sometimes
Believes
Not always
Believes
Sometimes
Believes
In the real world did you copy and paste too?
Now we don't have to take it too extreme
We'll keep our hands, our legs, even our lips apart
But I'm giving you my heart
My heart
Are you giving me your heart
Your heart

Are you lonely too
Are you lonely too

High five
So am I
All of your life
Stuck inside
I'm stuck, too
I'm stuck with you
Do you believe
I do, I do, I do

White Fire

Everything is tragic
It all just falls apart
But when I look into your eyes
It pieces up my heart

If I only had an answer
To put it all to bed
I wish sometimes I could take back
Every word I've said

I walked back in the night alone, got caught up in my song
Forgot where I was sleeping, none of the lights were on
I heard my mother thinking me right back into my birth
I laughed so loud inside myself it all began to hurt

So I turned on a picture show and disappeared the lines
As memories came flooding in, the tears blew out my eyes

I see an elevator
A moment I am above
I look for you or someone
Who can still remind me of
The tight grip and the sun lick
And the calm weight of all things summer

When it's all here
And it's all new
And you're not hungover

Fierce and light and young
Fierce and light and young
When you don't know that you're wrong
Or just how wrong you are
In the real world did you copy and paste too?
My feet are always heavy as I inch toward the door
I thought we'd leave this for ourselves a hundred times before
But I guess we're always leaving even when we look the same
And it eases me somehow to know that even this will change

If you've still got some light in you then go before it's gone
Burn your fire for no witness it's the only way it's done

Fierce and light and young
Fierce and light and young
Hit the ground and run
Hit the ground and run

High and Wild

You're gone, you're gone
You're with me but you're gone
A feeling once so strong
Is now an old and forgotten song
That you don't sing so high and wild
You don't sing so high and wild

You're here, you're here
But your spirit's disappeared
Off to some place that I don't know
Some demon thing has squashed your soul
And I don't recognize you

I wish that this could turn our pain to bliss
And we could put our fears aside
And learn to laugh and be alive
And let our bodies be revived

But you can't say that you want me
What am I supposed to think that's the truth
Well, has it ever been easy for you
To stand behind the things that I do

I want for this to pass
For us to both say at last
That on this dark and narrow path
The sun is shining
And we remember what it is we're living for

I'm neither innocent or wise
When you look me in the eyes
You might as well be blind
You might as well be blind
'Cause you don't see me anymore
In the real world did you copy and paste too?
And you, you can't tell me that you love me
When I'm standing in your way
Well this would all be so much easier
If I had nothing more to say

Well this would all be so much easier
If I had nothing more to say
If only if only
I had nothing more to say
Oh if only if only
I had nothing more to say

Lights Out

If you don't feel good about it, then turn around
If you really mean it, baby stand your ground
No one's gonna take it for you, darling it's true
No one's gonna make it for you

If you feel like quitting now, then try a little harder
The things we need the most they seem to take a little longer
No one's gonna try it for you, darling no one
No one's gonna wait there with you

Just when you thought you would turn all your lights out, it shines
Some days all you need is one good thought strong in your mind

If you don't believe me, you can go ahead and laugh
If you've got a sense of humor, you're not so bad
No one's gonna hear it the same as it's said
No one's gonna listen to it straight from your head

If you feel like running out, then stay in one place
When you're still and when you run there's something to face
No one's gonna see your life through, there's no way
For anyone to know what you've see every day

If you don't feel good about it, then turn around
If you really mean it baby, stand your ground
No one's gonna take it for you, darling it's true
No one's gonna wait there with you
In the real world did you copy and paste too?
Just when you thought you would turn all your lights out, it shines
Some days all you need is one good thought strong in your mind

Stars

I think you like to see me lose my mind
You treat me like a child I'm angry, blind
I feel so much at once that I could scream
I wish I had the voice of everything
I wish I had the voice of everything

To scream the animals, to scream the earth
To scream the stars out of our universe
To scream it all back into nothingness
To scream the feeling 'til there's nothing left
To scream the feeling 'til there's nothing left

I close my eyes
I close my eyes and try to breathe for a while
Well you can change my mind with just a smile
And just before I turn to leave, I think
"I could use the thoughts you've given me"
Oh, I could use the thoughts you've given me

To sing the animals to sing the earth
To sing the stars into our universe
To sing it all back into something new
To sing for life, for myself, and maybe you
In the real world did you copy and paste too?
Wish I had the voice of everything, sometimes
Wish I had the voice of everything

I close my eyes
I close my eyes and try to breathe for a while
Oh, for a while
Oh, for a while
Oh

Iota

If only all our memories were one
We only had to blink, and it was done
If all the world could see it with one eye
In perfect color to the perfect sky

If only we could turn ourselves around
And all the things we're looking for were found
If only we grew wiser with each breath
If only we could dance our way to death

If only all our dreams were coming true
Maybe there'd be some time for me and you
If only all the world could sing along
In perfect rhythm to the perfect song
In the real world did you copy and paste too?
If only all our hopes were to be here
We just close our eyes when we want to disappear
If only all the love we needed was gained
If only we could always stay the same
If only we could always stay the same

We'd close our doors and then we'd go to bed
We'd never have to do it all again
There wouldn't be one thing to fight about
And time would turn our bodies inside out
And time would turn our bodies inside out

Dance Slow Decades

Thought I had a clue
It was passing by
Thought I had an answer
It was just a sigh
Thought I had a dream once
Don't remember why

Your voice cut straight through me
Right down to my bones
Like a winter's wind it
Knocked out my soul
In the real world did you copy and paste too?
Thought I had some time here
Left my watch at home
Thought I had ideas once
They were all on loan

Thought I conquered something
Then it took me down
What I thought I heard clearly
It wasn't sound
Thought I felt your heart beat
It was just my counting
And to what thoughts will
My life be amounting

I can hear you crying
And I am crying, too
The world might be lying
But so are you

I can see you dancing
If you'd just take the step
You might still have it in you
Give yourself the benefit
And dance slow decades
Toward the sun
Even when you're the only one

Don't look around
It's not right
It's not wrong
Dance because you know the song
I dance because
I know this one

Enemy

I need advice it's true
But I won't hear it from you
I don't remember when
You last cared for the things I did

I wish I could believe
Apply all the sides you've seen
Well you could be the only one
Who knows the truth of me
In the real world did you copy and paste too?
Am I the ugly one
It's easy to see past
All of the kindness that you've offered me
It doesn't last

It's just a thought I had
If I could show you how
I came to think this way
Maybe you'd understand me now

Sometimes our enemies
Are closer than we think
Sometimes the ones we trust
May have to give up listening

I wish it were the same
As it is in my mind
I'd like to learn a thing or two
Give me a reason why

Why am I not ashamed
While I am standing still
You want to move in me like you did before
But I've had my fill

You say your time has changed
That you have faced defeat
We may be older now
But is it changing anything

It could be in a way
We've learned to carry well
Oh how I wish I could
Remove this doubt I feel somehow

I want the best for you
So I won't look your way
Maybe the clouds will clear
And I'll be seeing you someday

I wish it were the same
As it is in my mind
I am lighter on my feet
When I've left some things behind

Windows

Won't you open a window sometime
What's so wrong with the light
What's so wrong with the light
The wind in your hair, the sun in your eyes

The light
The light

We throw our shadows down
We must throw our shadows down
We live and throw our shadows down
It's how we get around
In the real world did you copy and paste too?
In the sun
In the sun
Why can't you see
Why can't you see
Why can't you see

Are you blind
Are you blind
Are you blind
Are you dead, already
Are you alive
Are you alive

Won't you open a window sometime
Won't you open a window sometime
What's so wrong with the light
What's so wrong with the light
The wind in your hair, the sun in your eyes

What's so wrong with the light
What's so wrong with the light
What's so wrong with the light...

White Water

I'm white water
White water
Oh, down upon her

She wants to be pure unsprouted
She wants to be unsprouted pure
She wants to hold unborn child
She wants to be child unborn

White
White water
White water

I'm white water
White water

She wants to be clean desire
She wants to be naked and never again
She wants to be never again nobody
She wants to be clean desire
In the real world did you copy and paste too?
She wants to be clean desire
She wants to be naked and never again
She wants to be never again nobody
She wants to be clean desire

I'm white water
White water
Oh, down upon her
Down upon her

White
White water
White water
I'm white water

All Right Now

It's all here
Now, it's all here
Now, it's all here
Now, it's always been here

It's all right
Now, it's all right
Now, it's all right
Now, it's always been right

You do not have to leave
Or go out walking too
You do not have to reach out
To somebody new
You do not have to hold her
In your fingertips
It's always been there with you
You are what it is
In the real world did you copy and paste too?
And it's all right
Now, it's all right
Now, it's all right
Now, it's always been right
All right, all right
All right, all right

I hear you in my thoughts
I see you in my dreams
I know you're in my mind
And you are everything
Stay, and stay awhile
And still reminds
All be here
And start it

All right now
All right now
All right now
All right now
All right now
All right now
All right now

Only With You

You can love, you can love, you can lose
When it all looks the same
You can love, you can love, you can lose
When you're tired of playing

Here I am, there you are
I don't know where we're going
Or where we have been
I look back when I know
It's not there where I left
Have to find it again
In the real world did you copy and paste too?
Or the feeling I had when it had me
It was only with you
Here it is, there it goes
Was a force of its own just passing through

You can love, you can love, you can lose
When it all looks the same
You can love, you can love, you can lose
Even at your own game

You can look, you can look, you can see
What you wanted to see
All your life you've been looking
Whatever it is, you don't find it in me

All your life you've been looking
Whatever it is you don't find it in me
All your life you've been looking
Whatever it is you don't find it in me

You don't find it in me
You don't find it in me
You don't find it in me
You don't find it in me

May As Well

It may as well have been forgotten
Or did it simply slip your mind
Is that my heart that's splitting open
I guess it just fell to the side

I've tried my best to keep you smiling, love
Maybe it's been all in vain
But I would try a million times, my dear
Tell me would you do the same
In the real world did you copy and paste too?
One could say it's complicated, love
Like nothing they've seen before
Or simply that it is a thought we share
Forever it must be ignored

If you really love me, there's no way to tell
I'm always arriving when you say farewell
In all of my dreams we are husband and wife
I'll never forget you all of my life

I'll never forget you all of my life
I'll never forget you all of my life

Endless Road

Well, every road I see
Leads away from me
There's not a single one
That leads me home
The road keeps saying "Friend
Come see what's round the bend"
So is it any wonder that I roam

All the places I have been
Keep calling me back again
Down in the pines
I hear the cold winds blow
My heart keeps telling me
"Footloose and fancy-free"
And the road goes by
And calls me as it goes
In the real world did you copy and paste too?
Well, maybe somewhere there's a someone
Waiting there with a smile
And maybe there'll be a place
To stop and rest awhile
And maybe you weren't meant to be
Just a rolling stone
And there's a road to travel on
That leads you back to home

Oh, but I'll keep travelling on
Keep looking at the dawn
Till I can lay this lonesome body down
And when that day has come
I nevermore will roam
And every road I see will lead me home

My Woman

Intern

Maybe you know that it's been too long
Going through the motions as you sing your song
Doesn't matter who you are or what you've done
Still got to wake up and be someone
Still got to wake up and be someone
In the real world did you copy and paste too?
I don't care what the papers say
It's just another intern with a resumé
I'm gona fall in love with you someday
I'm gonna fall in love and run away
I'm gonna fall in love and run away

Everyone I know has got their own ideal
I just wanna be alive, make something real
Doesn't matter who you are or what you do
Something in the world will make a fool of you
Something in the world will make a fool of you

Pick up the phone but I swear it's the last time
Pick up the phone but I swear it's the last time
Falling in love and I swear it's the last time
Falling in love and I swear it's the last time

Never Be Mine

Coming from an endless place
Heaven hits me when I see your face
I go blind, every time

Hate to have to watch you go
Thought I'd been through this Lord knows
I've been trying and I'm still trying

You'll never be mine
You'll never be mine
You'll never be mine

You'll never be mine
You'll never be mine
You'll never be mine

But I would watch you
I would watch you
Turn and walk away

I would watch you
Look right through me
Right through every word that I say

He wants to know why
He wants to know why
I only want to know you

I want to tell him
I know the feeling
This time I swear that I do
In the real world did you copy and paste too?
But I would watch you
I would watch you
Turn and walk away

Yes, I would watch you
Learn to love you
And her, too, if you'd only stay

But you'll never be mine
You'll never be mine
You'll never be mine

You'll never be mine
You'll never be mine
You'll never be mine

He wants to know why
He wants to know why
I only want to know you

I want to tell him
I know the feeling
This time I swear that I do
This time I swear that I do
This time I swear that I do

But I will turn and walk away
I will watch you turn and walk away

Shut Up Kiss Me

I ain't hanging up this time
I ain't giving up tonight
Even if you walk around
As though you think you're right
At your worst you still believe
It's worth the fight

I can make it all go away
Tell me what you're thinking, don't delay
We could still be having some sweet memories
This heart still beats for you why can't you see

Shut up kiss me, hold me tight
Shut up kiss me, hold me tight
Stop your crying, it's alright
Shut up kiss me, hold me tight
In the real world did you copy and paste too?
Stop pretending I'm not there
When it's clear I'm not going anywhere
If I'm out of sight then take another look around
I'm still out there hoping to be found

Shut up kiss me, hold me tight
Shut up kiss me, hold me tight
Stop your crying, it's alright
Shut up kiss me, hold me tight

I could make it all disappear
You could feed me all of your fears
We could end all this pain right here
We could rewind all of those tears

I could take it down to the floor
You don't have to feel this anymore
Love so real that it can't be ignored
It's all over baby blue I'm still yours
I'm still yours

Shut up kiss me, hold me tight
Shut up kiss me, hold me tight
Stop your crying, it's alright
Shut up kiss me, hold me tight
Shut up kiss me, hold me tight

Give It Up

Hurts to be around you
I can't stand here lying
Whenever you're beside me
A part of me is dying

And every time I see you
I tell myself I'll never
Have this feeling with another
Oh, you're in my heart forever

What is it you think I need
Everything, it's not true
I'd give it all up for you
Give it all up for you
In the real world did you copy and paste too?
Want to touch you
Show you how it feels
Whenever you're around
Take my time with you, my love

You're the one I'm thinking of
You're the one I'm thinking of
You're the one I really love

In my arms and fast asleep
In my arms and all my dreams
Where you are is where I want you
Where you are is where I want to
Where you are is where
I want to be
I want to be
I want to be

Not Gonna Kill You

My watch is blurry when I look down at my hands
I'm just another, alive with impossible plans
I'd turn the lights low but we both know where we are
And when it's over, what becomes of your pure heart
In the real world did you copy and paste too?
A love that never seems to curse or to confine
Will be forever never lost or too defined
To lose the feeling of an endless searching through-out
To help meet what is never about me or you
That is the kind of love I've always dreamed to be
However painful, let it break down all of me

'Til I am nothing else but the feeling
'Til I am nothing else but the feeling

Becoming true
Becoming true
Can't help feeling the way that I do
Can't help feeling the way that I do
Become a prophet
Become a fool

Or let the light shine in
Oh let the light shine in
Or let the light shine in
May the best of you win
Who is your truest friend
Are they there at your end
Oh let the light be bled
And let some tears be shed
Do it all over again
Oh let the light shine in

It's not gonna kill you, it's not gonna kill you
It's not gonna kill you, it's not gonna kill you
It's not gonna break you, it's just gonna shake you
Shake you alive
Baby
Oh, baby

Oh let the light shine in
Oh let the light shine in
Oh let the light shine in
May the best of you win

Heart Shaped Face

I've seen you changing
I've seen you changing

Was it me you were thinking of
All that time when you thought of me
Was it me you were thinking of
All that time when you thought of me

Or was it your mother
Or was it your shelter
Or was it another
With a heart shaped face
Got a heart shaped face
Was it a feeling you thought I could dig up or erase
In the real world did you copy and paste too?
I've seen you changing
I've seen you aging

And I learn how to turn my head
And I learn how to walk away
And the truth never really lives
In a story of words we say

You never needed anyone
To expose you to yourself
And you never needed anyone
To raise you hell out of your mind
I never wanted to be someone
Who had to leave it all behind

Even still there is no escape
For what I face, I have faced before
Have whatever love you wanna have
But I can't be her anymore

There is nothing new
Under the sun
There is nothing new
Under the sun

Heartache ends
Heartache ends
Heartache ends
And begins again
And begins again
And begins again

Heartache ends
Heartache ends
Heartache ends
And begins
And begins
Begins

Sister

Saw it in her eyes
Oh, it wasn't what she said
She came together like a dream
That I didn't know I had

From the sleeping life I lead
All the colors I have seen
I can't help but recognise
A brighter one in front of me

All the truth I thought I learned
And then it finally came along
Turned around and then it's there
All the love I thought was gone
In the real world did you copy and paste too?
I want to know you
I want to show you
I want to be there
I want to see how
Piece us together
Know it's forever
Show me the future
Tell me you'll be there
I want to go where
Nobody knows fear
I want to follow
My heart down that wild road

Everywhere I go
I can see your face
Alive and gone at once
That's the way I see this place

And all this blessing was a curse
Before I opened up my heart
You learn to take it as it comes
You fall together, fall apart

I want to know you
I want to show you
I want to be there
I want to see how
Live it through your eyes
Piece us together
Know that this wild road
Will go on forever
I want to live life
I want to die right

Next to you
Next to you
Next to you

All my life I thought had change
All my life I thought had change
All my life I thought had change
All my life I thought had change
All my life I thought had change
All my life I thought had change

All my life I thought had change
All my life I thought had change
All my life I thought had change
All my life I thought had change

All my life I thought had change
All my life I thought had change
All my life I thought had change

All my life I thought had change
All my life I thought had change

Those Were The Days

Do you remember the way that it used to be
I waited for you
You kept on searching with me
Feeling free
Wanting to see each other all of the time
Those were the days
Nothing to lose and nothing to find
In the real world did you copy and paste too?
I see how you're laughing with those you don't know as well
I hear you say I'm the one but I wish I could tell
And funny how time can make you realise and make you realise
And then realise

But I'll take all of it
Don't want to leave it behind
I'll take all of it
If it's only real in my mind
Real in my mind
Real in my mind

Will you ever
Will you ever know the same love that I've known
Will you ever
Will you ever know the same love that I've known
Will you ever
Will you ever know the same love that I've known
Love you, love you, love you
Even when it's all on my own
All on my own, all on my own

Do you remember the way that it used to be
I waited for you
And you kept on searching with me
Feeling free
Wanting to see each other all of the time
Those were the days
Nothing to lose and nothing to find

Woman

You can leave now if you want to
I'll still be around
This parade is almost over
And I'm still your clown

I've been thinking
How your smile seems to last forever
Even if it's just a while
We are there together
There together
In the real world did you copy and paste too?
With no promise of the future
Am I not allowed
To think kindly of a stranger
Who reflects the sound
Of my heartache
As it's beating
My life to the ground
To the ground
To the ground
To the ground
To the ground

And I could still breathe for you
Open up and scream for you
Tell me what I wouldn't do
Tell me that love isn't true
Tell me that love isn't true
Tell me that love isn't true

I dare you to understand
What makes me a woman
What makes me a woman
What makes me a woman

I'd do anything
To see it all
The way that you do

But I'd be lying
Baby
But I'd be lying to you

Pops

All those people, they don't see me
Baby, don't leave, please believe me
Couldn't love them if I tried to
No one understands me like you

I'm not playing anymore
I'm not playing anymore
Did all that before
I'm not playing anymore

Love of the chase
Love of love
What is it
My heart's made of

Don't you know you'll never have a part
Please don't start
It hurts to start
In the real world did you copy and paste too?
Dreaming, dreaming
Falling again
Again, again

After it all ends
We'll be just like friends
"Hey, what was that passing us by"
"Hey, it was only something in my eyes"

You can go on home, you got what you need
Take my heart and put it up on your sleeve
Tear it up so they can all sing along
Live out your life
I'll never tell you you're wrong

Baby, don't forget, don't forget it's a song
I'll be the thing that lives in the dream when it's gone
I'll be the thing that lives in the dream when it's gone

California

(Sleepwalker EP)

On the way to california
And I don't mean california literally
I was thinking, it's so comforting quiet
You read so softly over my head
It's late but I'm maintaining interest in the things that you say
I could listen to you speak all day
In the silence dripping wet with
Kisses running down my lips
Could be just a good friend
Who knows at this point anyway
There's just something about the way you surrender your eyes
Without this barrier of bodies, we'd already be inside
On the way to California
And I don't mean california literally
I was thinking, I was thinking, I'm not dreaming
Not this time anyway
In the real world did you copy and paste too?
I've got a feeling buried deep down inside of me
I've got a feeling buried deep down
And who knows what it means to have a feeling
Buried so deep down
But I've never felt quite so open for love
I've never felt quite so open before
And maybe my imagination runs away with me
You know I don't mind
You know I don't mind
You know I don't mind at all
Oh no... at all
And if should take me I'd let you break my heart
Oh no...
And if you should take me I'd let you break my heart
Oh... my heart
Oh... my heart

Creator, Destroyer

(Strange Cacti EP)

I watch from a tower in the back of my mind
I watch from a window as the living walk by
Down below
Walking with quiet dreams
Walking out quiet day
And in my head
I might be sorry it makes no difference now
I might be wishing I had some place to go
Hit the streets
Out in search for the self that has left me lying
And I never seem to notice
It's too late before I know that all
The love inside has been empty
The world we made has been ending
And like a ghost that hangs around and won't forgive its earthly sins
I've carried on this love for you
It's how my body lives
My darling
How are you
How have you been lately
I only seem to speak to you of superficial things
Creator, you destroy me
You know my hunger well
And yet you starve me
Until I'm begging on my knees
And these are a few of very many things
I can't begin to say out loud
If only this song could carry us on
But I know I'm only entertaining myself
I felt that even after I've been stripped of all my pride
There still remains a place for you to crawl up inside
To crawl up inside
To crawl up inside
And I'm out of my mind
Out of my mind
Murderous bitch I'm out of my mind
I'm out of my mind
To be in love with you
The way that I'm in love with you
The way that I'm in love with you
Fuck this and everything we've done
Fuck you
Fuck you and your lies

Drunk and with Dreams

(Strange Cacti EP)

Someone has got to go on believing
Someone has got to speak of a feeling
Someone has got to Let down their guard
For someone
And I'll be the one, be the one
I do not mind
And if you should touch me know that I made
That I'm made of fire
Drunk and with dreams I'm lost out at sea
With my only map I have memories
How else do you suggest I get back to that place
With only one memory I've ever seen
It's face
Though I keep it alive
Like a bell underwater
Rings in my head and as long as it's ringing
It was once said, It was once said
I'll be the one be the one I do not mind
And if you should touch me know that I made
That I made up that I made up my mind
Oh lift me up oh lift me up lift me up just to bury me under
Lift me up oh lift me up lift me up just to bury me under

If It's Alive, It Will

(Strange Cacti EP)

My friend, you are unique but not always
Some stranger you don't know has surely felt your pain
Some stranger out there might even own your name
And say all the things that you said
Your thoughts existing in someone else's head

It's true you are one of my favorite books to read
I have to thank you now
You've changed the way I think
And with each page I turn, there you are
And with each word I read
Rings true in my heart
While I was waiting
I found something I was missing
Might not have been a man, but well
We still could live on wishing
Please don't confuse me
With your devastating stare-downs
I'll hold your mirror
All you have to do is turn around
So you can see the face you make
When are giving out your soul
Are you the only one who doesn't already know

I used to think I was the only one
I used to think I was the only one
I used to think I was the only one
But I've learned quite a few things since then
I've learned that no one really is the only one
In the real world did you copy and paste too?
My friend, if it's alive, it will do anything
And if it's strong as well, believe it will go there
And if it's full of love, know it is capable of
Emptying itself out at any point at all
Just know the height you reach is the distance you could fall
Know your own heart well
It's the one that's worth most of your time
Know your own heart well
You could be surprised at what you find

My friend, you are unique but not always
Some stranger out there has surely felt your pain
Some stranger you don't know might even own your name
Has said all the things that you said
Thoughts existing in someone else's head

I used to think I was the only one
I used to think I was the only one
I used to think I was the only one
But I've learned quite a few things since then
I've learned that no one ever really is the only one

So That We Can Be Still

(Strange Cacti EP)

Must all of my memories
Drown into infinity
Try to grasp them, but I always miss
Time goes by so fast as if
It hardly wants to exist
Let's make a mask of our face
Of our hands
So that we can be still
For a while
For a while
For a while

All the many ways that
You can choose to be alive
All the countless steps you take
Before you have arrived
All the passing faces
Going quickly on their way
Where are they going so quickly
And when you're going and do the same
In the real world did you copy and paste too?
One moment, you're awake
And making a sound
A number asleep in your ground
In your ground
In your ground

Well, shall we wrap it all up in a bow
Thank you, I have all my thoughts to go
Wrapped up in a box with the rest of my soul
To hide away
To hide it away
To hide it away
Yeah, hoping somebody might find it
Yeah, hoping somebody might find it
Yeah, hoping somebody might find it
Yeah, hoping somebody might find it

Some things Cosmic

(Strange Cacti EP)

Before we draw
My dear dear friend
I promise you my
Word
If we should part
My dear dear love, you
Know you're in my
Heart
And though I may be getting older
Know that I am going with you
Know that I am hanging on
To the things that you said
The things that you said
I've felt my soul
Rise up from my body, when I
Look into your blue eyes
If cosmic force
Is real at all
It's come between you and
I, I want to be naked
I don't need my body
I don't need my body
I'm floating away
I'm floating away
I'm floating away

Sweet Dreams

(Sleepwalker EP)

Every time I close my eyes
Something small within me dies
Can't say if its dark or bright
But its all I've ever known
And when I sleep
I sleep alone
Alone
Alone
Every time I take a breath
Something once living inside me has left
Yes its alive but its just past through
Its just left me and its just left you
On your own
On your own
And I love you most
I love you most
When I first found love in my soul
And I'll give to you
Give it up to you
When i first find it in my self
And the time will come for everyone
For everyone to know
Yes the time will come for everyone
For everyone to go
And say goodbye
And say goodbye
And say goodbye
Sweet dreams
Sleep tight
Sleep tight

Tiniest Lights

(Strange Cacti EP)

Another winter, another spring
Another old and restless thing
Another tremble, another shake
Another sleeps while the other waits
Bear your burden, the winded balm
Bury it down and down
Who had to put his trust in one so lonesome and so proud
In the real world did you copy and paste too?
And don't forget to say a word of fire-headed prayer
And if it's not within you, well, ask someone who is there
To turn you out toward the sun
Now that the season's begun
To lift these shadows from your heart
To shine a lightness in your dark
I'm looking out for the tiniest life
I'll be looking out for the tiniest sign
I'll be looking out for the tiniest light
To shine, shine on down
Won't you shine, shine on down

Who's Sorry Now

(Connie Francis / Resistance Radio: The Man in the High Castle)

Who's sorry now
Who's sorry now
Who's heart is aching for breaking each vow
Who's sad and blue
Who's crying too
Just like I cried over you

Right to the end
Just like a friend
I tried to warn you somehow
You had your way
Now you must pay
I'm glad that you're sorry now

Right to the end
Just like a friend
I tried to warn you somehow
You had your way
Now you must pay
I'm glad that you're sorry now
