Innocent Ghosts

# Title Duration
1. Can't You Wait
all the ways
that I called you brother
you couldn't wait
but I'll never love another

all the days
all the waiting hours
I lost your name
but I hear your laughter cowering now

all the days
I tired to call you brother
you couldn't wait
but I'll never love another

I see your face
when I'm dreaming of her
wash it away
but I cannot love another

the sun
Is older than you are and
my love 
is younger than your heart and
the sun
is older than you are and
my love 
is younger than your heart and

the sun, the sun, the sun, the sun…

2. Rushing In, Rushing Out
I'm waiting for
your open arms
but I won't wait forever
when the river breaks
my eyes light up
but they don't look to heaven

I feel it rushing out
I feel it rushing in
I feel it rushing

and in the waiting room
doctors did the best they could
but nothing lasts forever
some things you cannot choose
some days you cannot lose
some nights you just cannot forget her

this stain will not come out
I try to live it down
not even God will last forever
well, I hope so

I feel it rushing out
I feel it rushing in
I feel it rushing

3. Caught a Fire
woke this morning with a lonely thought
woke this morning with a lonely thought
you weren't the one I was dreaming of
you weren't the one I was dreaming of

woke this morning with a lonely thought
I woke this morning with a lonely thought
you were not, not the one, I was dreaming of
you are not, not the one, I would lay here for

you caught a fire I can't unlight
ashes like snow fall from the sky
you caught a fire I can't unlight
ashes like snow fall from the sky

woke this morning with a lonely thought
I woke this morning with a lonely thought
you were not, not the one, I was dreaming of
you are not, not the one, I would lay here for

you caught a fire I can't unlight
ashes like snow fall from the sky
you caught a fire I can't unlight
ashes like snow fall from the sky

4. Leave
I don't want to feel the ground
when you finally let me down
I don't want to fade away
if I'm standing in your way

so go from my gate 
I want to see you walking in away 
with that look on your face
don't hide it away
so you can leave me and not be lonely

this time's too slow to speak
and I am waiting to believe
this flame's too dim to keep
the kettle watching me

your shadow's on my wall
it's grown much too tall
you reach for my ceiling
night becomes day
you can leave me and not be lonely

you're standing at my door
but your not knocking, not like before
you open up to speak
there are no words left for you to breathe

my hand's tied to your sleeve
my heart's tied to a key
it won't blow me away 
if I'm holding on tight
you can leave me and not be lonely

5. Each Other's Ghosts
tonight it rains down
houses from pale clouds
covering whole towns
with nothing to keep out their sound

the light
is coming
again

fires will burn out
from the breath of a million mouths
the whispers sounding like shouts
you never see the moment when it hits the ground

the light
is coming
again

your heart's a candle burning
i'm wax around your wick
my head's an open page in
a book you cannot lift

i feel it coming in
turning heads and breaking locks
i feel it like a boy
falling leaves and dreams we trust
buried each other's ghosts
floorboards creaking while we walk
if they forget us will
we miss the halls they used to haunt

your heart's a candle burning
i'm wax around your wick
my head's an open page in
a book you cannot lift

6. Underneath My Heart
go
you're on your way
the hardest part
is counting days
and finding 

when you stop to see you're nowhere          (wait underneath my heart)
they don't even care
when you stop to see you're nowhere          (underneath my heart)
they don't even care

oh
the purest heart
a heart of gold
won't keep you young
won't matter

when you've grown to see you're nowhere          (wait underneath my heart)
they don't even care
when you stop to see you're nowhere                   (underneath my heart)
they don't even care

And you stop to see you're nowhere                    (wait underneath my heart)
they don't even care
when you stop to see you're nowhere                   (underneath my heart)
they don't even, they don't even

and you stop to see you're nowhere                      (underneath my heart)
they don't even care
and you stop to see you're nowhere                      (underneath my heart)
they don't even, they don't even

7. Wonderful
and it makes me want to love you
when the music hits my eyes
makes me want to be part of you
so you have nowhere to hide

and he's wonderful
til he's under you
then the lies he told
pouring over you
le petite morte
in the afternoon
kills the way you love
what's been loving you right

I got a dream coming fast and lonely
I used to keep it where you lie
I try to sleep but it won't stop glowing
like the light of a funeral pier

and he's wonderful
til he's under you
then the lies he told
pouring over you
le petite morte
in the afternoon
kills the way you love
what's been loving you right
04:31
8. Asleep
wake me now
where you wander I won't wander out
take me down
while you wake me I won't wonder how
I've been asleep til now
my dreams were real somehow

take me down
while you wake me I won't wonder how
I've been asleep til now
my dreams were real somehow

take me down
while you wake me I won't wonder how
I've been asleep til now
my dreams were real somehow

9. Native Son
I am an apple tree
covered up in your leaves
and no one else can feel my sin

your head's a burdened cloud
that never lets it out
until the desert cries your name

but now
my hands are the words in your mouth
my fingers are the days that you count
my eyes are the lovers you doubt

fortune's fools
naked as we are
in the woods
with heaven dropping stars
fortune's fools
naked as we are
in the woods
with heaven dropping

this weight it feels so cursed
i hear it calling out
over everything but you

and over everyone
i saw the native son
waiting to hear my voice too

but now
my hands are the words in your mouth
my fingers are the days that you count
my eyes are the lovers you doubt

and over everyone
i saw the native son
waiting to hear my voice too

10. The Morning
didn't mean to wake you in the morning
slowly move my feet along the hall
all the light is flooding through our window
all the world is waking to the sound

and I didn't need it anymore
cause I found something more
in this home, in this home
and I didn't want it anymore
cause I found something more
in this home, in this home

don't move your head though it's spinning around
waited so long with your head towards the ground
standing so close waiting to hear the sound
of all your fears scattering on the wall

the walls are falling down

didn't mean to wake you in the morning
slowly move my hands along the wall
all the light is flooding through our window
all the world is waking to the sound

don't move your head though it's spinning around
waited so long with your head towards the ground
standing so close waiting to hear the sound
of all your fears scattering on the wall

the walls are falling down
04:33
11. Atmosphere
it is me, it is me my dear
with my coat and a dream so clear
and the side of my face like a golden rocket
burning in the atmosphere
can you see me from down here

time like a diver fights
for the surface when it's time to die
and the pearls from his pocket falling down like snowflakes
catch them on your tongue this year
in your heat they're gonna disappear

I'm giving up my life of prayer
I'm gonna throw your ashes in the air
and I'm watching while the wind blows back and forth
but it's gonna let you down somewhere
it doesn't matter how much we care

the frozen flower 
will never open again
when the cold winds howl
you have but seconds to live

cover me in night so black
that I could never find my way back
to the stream in the woods where the footprints drown in
rain coming down like tears
drinking up all those years

the frozen flower 
will never open again
when the cold winds howl
you have but seconds to live
