walking at night

tonight i found an outline of a shadow of a tree
lying still as death in the middle of the street
swaying from one of its branches
was a handmade catcher of dreams

billions of years of direct hits
yet somehow the moon's still there
leaving no trace of pain or bitterness
just a scarred kind of grace, a relentless glare

secret things

have you ever felt like there are flames inside your veins?
flowing just like the blood that's somehow been replaced

this is what it feels like when i think of secret things

i see something in your eyes that says you've felt this way
i can hear it in your voice sometimes, it's written all over your face

this is what it feels like when i think of secret things

eggshells

we're only given this one life to live
why you gotta be so careful with it

i don't wanna walk on these eggshells
anymore

we're only given this one love to live
why you gotta be so careful with it

i don't wanna walk on these eggshells
anymore

on empty

spend too much time dreaming
not enough real life living
sleepless nights staring at the ceiling

and running
running on empty

there's no sign of breathing
in any photograph i'm seeing
just listening and living without feeling

and running
running on empty
