LYRICS

Broken Wing (Schultz)

 

Flying home on a broken wing

Making us all believe you

Pulling out all the silver feathers

On the way to spring

 

No one can catch you when you’re already gone

No, no one can get you when you’re gone

 

Trembling and tripping on your way outside

You’re hurting yourself just as bad

You’re hitching a ride to any, anywhere

So long as she’s around

 

No one can catch you when you’re already gone

No, no one can get you when you’re gone

 

Headlights (Scharf)

 

You got a funny way of taking off

I love how you race right down to the ocean

Slip into your silver skin
Like a jewel disappearing

 

Headlights on the highway

Searchlights past the bridge

 

I’m haunting the shore

Do you see me in the white fire of the moon?

Ships come and go

Oh, green eyes! I’m the lonely one

‚Äč

Since you went away

 

Headlights on the highway

Searchlights past the bridge

 

Where, where could I go?

A flare, all that I know

 

Waves (Scharf / Schultz)

 

Beneath the waves I swim for you

Your lips turn blue against mine

I hear your voice echo inside of mine
I’ve been dreaming we were older

But I can’t make that true


I’ve forgotten how to forget the bad parts

It’s getting harder to remember the good

 

Quiet baby let’s try not to make a sound

Just our breath just our breath.

Stay here baby hold on to me til the light

Make it through the night make it through the night

 

I’ve forgotten how to forget the bad parts

It’s getting harder to remember the good


I’m out of tricks now my magic slipped through these tattered sleeves

We did our best we tried our best

Every night I’m waking up to whispers in these rooms

I feel you here I still feel you here.

 

I’ve forgotten how to forget the bad parts

It’s getting harder to remember the good

California (Schultz)

 

Bring me to California

Fly me to where you are

Bring out dozens of white doves

Make ‘em spell out my name, babe

 

Cuz farewell ain’t what you mean

And goodbye’s only causing a scene

When we can’t quit

 

Hush up. Make up your mind now

The moon will come anyhow

Your palms are kissing like saints, babe

Begging a new kingdom to come

 

Cuz farewell ain’t what you mean

And goodbye’s only causing a scene

When we can’t quit

 

Four Letter (Schultz)

 

You live in your glass house

You’re listening for footsteps

You’re watching for someone to come

You’re cornered, you’re stuck here

Window pressed on your ear

You’re wishing on pennies again

 

They say hope’s a four-letter word

You can’t let it carry you away

 

You live in your glass house

Window pressed on your ear

You can’t get to carried away
 

Crooked Teeth (Scharf)

Crooked little teeth 
Smiling at me from behind my eyelids
I can see you in the dark 
Climbing stairwells in the yard

Daddy's crying in his sleep
Mama's walkin 'round that clear blue lake
I press myself against the wall

Feel you dreaming after me 


Lonely little child 

Wandering along the old stone path

Our secrets hide inside the moon

You wait for me, I'll wait for you
 

Towards the Sun (Schultz)

I lost you in the parking lot

Found you barefoot stumbling towards the sun
You've been coming up against brick walls 
We've been coming up against ourselves 

We all get lost inside our heads 
We all get lost inside 

You're hearing voices sing to you
They're calling to you in your dreams
They're whispering secret instructions 
You believe everything you hear

We all get lost inside our heads
We all get lost inside 


I lost you in the parking lot

Found you barefoot stumbling towards the sun
We've been coming up against brick walls 
You've been coming up against ourselves 

 


We all get lost inside our heads
We all get lost inside 

 

Hide The Moon (Schultz)

We're missing exits we're dropping calls 
This don't make no sense at all 

We're fumbling, stumbling we're skipping stairs

All you keep saying is it's not fair

Cuz it's one foot in front of the other 

You buy the round, we'll put 'em down

We'll run this night into the ground
If the night don't end, the day can't come
So we'll hide the moon and beat back the sun

 

Cuz it's one foot in front of the other 


Sponsor (Scharf)

I learned it all from you
How to sing in tune into a bottle 
Dance like you
I learned all the moves

Now I'm on top 

I'm rattled up all night 
A drug dog I look so good in the moon 
My hollow eyes
Drink the diamond light

Glowing in your hands 
 

I'll be waiting around 
Here for you when you're alone

Shake me up 
I am just a ghost among your loves
I'm writing on my skin
Maps of the rooms where secrets 
Grew in our hearts

I'll be waiting around
Here for you when you're alone

I'll give you all you need 
I'll give you all you need

I'll be waiting around

Here for you when you're alone
