Astronaut

he wanted to know about my time
on the other side of the moon
he wanted to know i'm doing fine
without orbiting his sun
but i can't hold back

he wanted to see my sun shine down
and watch it catch my eye
he wanted to feel my wall fall down
and cross my picket line
but i can't hold back

i can't hold on
i can't hold on
without it slipping through my fingers
without it falling from my hands

he wanted to give me room to breathe
so that i wouldn't run
he wanted to ask about the stars
and my travels to orion
but i can't hold back

i can't hold on
i can't hold on
without it slipping through my fingers
without it falling from my hands

been on a cruise in the heavens
and how i flew
down on earth it was a little colder
missing you

he said that i could light up the sky
said i was a lovely burn
said i am his night
i never was one for the sun
but i can't hold back

i can't hold on
i can't hold on
without it slipping through my fingers
without it falling from my hands

it was a lovely burn

1984

hello i rang for me
from 1984
if i knew the difference then
i'd have kept my word

am i a traveler
or do i just dream
i dreamed i found myself
in a dream you were me

i could see the end
with the dirt falling on my head
i wrote it down to not forget it

how 'bout i show you
pictures that won't fade
i can't count the time i realized
i'd never return

i could see the end
with the dirt falling on my head
i wrote it down to not forget it

waking up sundays
in all of its drag
i'm not quite here yet
am i forgotten
so close to the start
of the end

wipe it out completely
before it starts to spread
i can't hold it tight enough
should i let it go instead

i could see the end
with the dirt falling on my head
i wrote it down to not forget it

Coming Around

close my hand to the world
you already have what i spilled
over ground i've already been

i'm not coming around
i'm not coming around for this

poison the word 'til it hurts
no more pretending
no more guilt

i'm not coming around
i'm not coming around for this

i have been the girl
and i am over the bend
i've been the left behind
the pieces you'll never find

so close the door
i will bury what i can't burn
i'm over the bridge
and into the clear

but i'm not coming around
i'm not coming around for this
