Here I am at the door 
No ones there 
I'm scattered left remaining 

Tasseled hair 
Maybe it's meant to be 
Left alone 
Hand grasping air 

Butterfly bandaid 
Hiding yesterday 

No one looking back at her 
There's a time and a place 
But the clock never seems to be pointing 
In her direction 

What does it take 
To start over 
Do you see me 

Like holes 
In black sky's 
Feel me breathe in you tonight 

Here I am at the door
No ones there 
I'm scattered left remaining

Take me home to my heart . 

Sifted through ashes 
Conquering the wars 
Slaughtered lambs there's something to say for the living 

Something to remember for the lost 
I have a voice 
Lost under glass 
Concrete walls 

Free me from this 
I'm the wolf 
Pacing at the door 

Covered in the lambs tragedy 
So here you have the storm 
I have everything there is to be told 
I'm not an underestimation 

I'm the lullabie
To unanswered prayers 
So listen close 

There's something to be said for the living 

I been sifted through the ashes 
Found wanting 
Made into new beginnings 
Take heart I say 
As the clouds gather 
We will not fall 
I promise you 
We will not fall

If I sent you one last letter 
I would tell you I'm letting you go 
Your the ace missing from my deck 
The best whisky on the shelf 
But I can't hold on to love 
That doesn't love me back 

And I can tell you 
It would be worth waiting forever 
As you live in these over due pages 
With no return answers

Alice commits suicide 
Can't shake the shadow 
She runs one way 
Hearts another 

Kings sit pretty with crowns 
They watch her fall 
It only matters if she's on her knees 
As she band aids the loss of being incomplete 

There's an ace missing from my deck 
There's a storm over head 

Nothing can stop her 
From un becoming what they want her to be 

She looks past the shadow 
Like Peter Pan 
A fairy tale can't save her 

I sit here between words and periods 
In this world alone 
Says , Alice 

Searching through every window

It's this place
He says . 

Take my hand 
She says . 

Across the wall 
Built against oceans 

I make this boat 
Patch work left wounded 

Stitches and sails unfolded 

It's dark here 
The storm comes from her eyes 
She becomes a light house 

He said I see you 
She said 
Come . 

Lights faltering 
In and out through the haze 

I can be your sun rise 
But as I sit the sun only sets

A letter where words break apart 
The last letter I will

About how it changed my life 
Something I have to let go 
And can't say good bye 

If I sailed the world to find the darkest ocean 
It could never hear the torture 
Of losing what could never be 
Found again 

I listen in the darkness 

How do I say goodbye 
In this letter I write 

But I can't keep fighting either 

I'm a ghost
Your the sailor 

I see the pictures 
And I'm not your home 

I can't forget 
I can't remember 

Can't say good bye 
Can't say hello either 

So here's your stamp 
I'm home 
I'm not your home 

Writing to say 
I can't let go 

But I have to say good bye

I'm standing in the rain 
I'm not the midnight train 
Waiting at the station 
Coming and going 


Do you see me here 
Wait with me 
Traveling alone 

Never asking me where I'm going 
My suit case full 

Am I not the beauty 
As you cast your stone 

My heart beating on broken tracks 
And gone 

A leather cliche 
I'm more than fascinated 

But you can't read this can you 
Or your suitcase would be ready 

I'm more than this 
I'm a kiss 

Not just good bye

The Fall

I feel the leaves of you 
Wrestling under my skin 
It's always fall , in this place 

I sit in the warmth 
Watch trees changing shape 

I can't walk to winter 
Leaving you behind 

I hesitate in every moment 
Trying to find 

A smile in the silence 
Bringing you here 

I'm stepping on keys 
Black and white 
Can you still hear 

The scream of breaking me open 
The smell of home on your fingers 

I lie here now 
Leaves blowing in the wind 
Midnight of winter moving in 

I stay here quiet and alone 
Hoping you will meet me here
