castle window keep it closed secret language I suppose who knows? nothing’s buried nothing grows mystic knowledge I suppose who knows? maybe we’ve gone grey and so maybe time will make a monument to us both you can darken my doorway or go
 I will love you in the next life, you know
Look Like 02:40
what’s the difference? what’s the use of wondering? we both know better you cannot just throw a sheet over the moon it’s up there shining it’s staring us right in the eyes I’ve spent a lifetime in a loop of what I thought it’d look like I’ve got a feeling I’ve got this wild idea I’m gonna spend a million days soft wishing you another world and in the next one, maybe I’ll do a better job of keeping you around or maybe I’d just do it all again what an evening what’s the use of sleeping in? Elle tells the car to pull around we just dissolve into the wind where maybe love is finding many ways to say one thing I think it’s better in a song it gives me something else to sing
have you seen the moon this afternoon? rising for me setting for you stoplights sway there’s birds in the breeze light in your eyes you turn like a key sit and watch the sunset with me alive and decaying afraid and so free tired of being upset it’s true but it’s peaceful right here with you
open sky or die I call on you open sky or die I follow you into a room prepare me for my doom lead me to it I have visions of the lake at night we fall asleep adrift in pure delight it’s good to to have you near I feel my future in a life here I’ve learned to paint within the shape of you I summon violins to play me through I lay down on the lawn I dream I’m in a dark marsh I wake up a cave I lose myself by midday no beholding open sky or die I’m terrified open sky or die it’s worth a try until I’m crushed the weight is just too much
I cast my winter vanishing spell I will see myself out it’s all blue skies from the valley to the dell with your magic around you know it’s gonna be a long time til I am back again you know it’s gonna be a long time I've been sleeping in I’m good at small talk "how’s the coffee?" "how’s your health?" "whatcha dreaming about?" but it’s a short walk between heaven and hell I think I know that now light pours in it fills my head with every sound I hear without you around you ever wonder how it gets better in time? will it get better in time? I started building my dream home you’re invited
Castle Mood 01:50
I’m in a castle mood yeah, I know I said it and yeah, I really meant it too I took some time for me hey, what do you know? maybe that was just the way to go to get on through when you dyed your hair to cover up something that was never even there, I held it back for you it’s not a big deal, there was really nothing better to do no one else but you you took a shape or two I just wanna spend another moment in the morning until the moon splits the room hanging like a diamond in the sky I should be honest with you to get on through
