Track Name: Melting
i met you once before
but i never call your name
the last time was years and years ago
why does it feel like yesterday?

we made love like falling angels
we were two drops of blood
among the pouring rain
so strange and so familiar
no other lover ever feels the same

so make love like melting ice cream
your best years are gonna circle down the drain

so make love like nothing matters
and no two tongues are ever going to feel the same
Track Name: Sinking
~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~

could've sworn that we were sinking
on a refugee bamboo raft
could've sworn that we were sinking
on a luxury catamaran

i've been trying to keep you calm
but i can barely move my arms

could've sworn that we were sinking
little bubbles above our breath
could've sworn that we were sinking
we were little kids again

...

then i woke to find that you spilled a glass a water in the bed and we shared a little laugh about how you nearly drowned us both

...

i was happier
thirty thousand fathoms deep
i was happier
in the belly of the sea

Track Name: Floating
i don't want to get sucked into your world again
but i can already feel it happening

i named every single reason that i should stay
but one by one i watch them float away

i don't want to get stuck inside a place
where tomorrow is never as good as yesterday

when i let my body float away
down your holy river
and i never felt so safe
and so delivered
from a cold and lonely fate

i don't want to get sucked into your world again
but i can already feel it happening

i named every single reason that i should stay
but one by one i watch them float away

why am i always breaking down
like a river
when you kiss me on the mouth?
like the ocean when you meet me in the south

and you're growing...
