Don’t fall asleep
We’re only just beginning to speak
I wanted you to show me where those mountains peak
And maybe get some insight into what they might mean
But the white in your hair won’t talk
This leaves me at the start

What’s so hard to recognize
My youth is such an elegant reprise
or maybe we’re a picture perfect case of divide
where the heart and head won’t talk
that’s where we fall apart

If I could show you what I've longed for
I’d be careening at your love
If I cannot anchor when I’m lost at sea
then why not come an rescue me
That’s all I need

Is there something I have to prove
This curtain paints us overly obtuse
Emphatically persistent in the things that we do
Cuz’ a dog at the end won’t start
and it's tearing me apart

So why not come and rescue me


from Don't Fall Asleep (11​.​09​.​16), released November 9, 2016
