Track Name: Anemone
I drowned slowly,
As my lungs spilt all over board,
You watched over me,
Set sail, off into the pale sun,

It's a game that neither of us could win,
It's a forfeit, a simple refrain,
It's a catch 22 all the same,
but now, I'm sleeping with anemone,

Deep blue calming,
Always current but I'm laying still,
High above me,
Something that I want but never will,

Win the game that both of us did play,
Take the stalemate, start over again?
Still a catch 22 all the same,
'Cause I'd, be sleeping with an enemy,

Ten thousand leagues,
My lover, he waits for me,
He longs for the woods, and the trees, and the leaves,
I'll never understand his meaning to be free,

I can't ever see, how we weren't meant to be,
left me alone with a simple goodbye,
let go of my hand and now I'm left to die,

I drowned slowly,
As my lungs spilt all over board,
You watched over me,
Set sail, off into the pale sun,
Track Name: Winter winds can't warm me
Cold breeze, in the night,
Keep me inside,
From the demons that run around outside,
You're under my skin,
My bones are shivering,
From the root that stems the frozen wind,

Take my body, for it's only flesh and bone,
It's the only way you've ever known,
Sweep me off my feet,
And into your heart,
But on the bitter night,
I won't venture into the dark,

I wake and it's bright,
The sun it burns my eyes,
like thoughts of you that flicker on inside,
You're under my skin,
My legs are aching,
From running from a thing, I cannot hide,

Take my body for it's only flesh and bone,
It's the only way you've ever known,
Sweep me off my feet,
And into your heart,
But on this bitter night,
I won't venture into the dark,

I miss you, but you were the issue,

Take my body for it's only flesh and bone,
It's the only way you've ever known,
Sweep me off my feet,
And into your heart,
But on this bitter night,
I won't venture into the dark,

I miss you, but you were issue.
