giants

Tuesday, October 17th, 2017

I don’t wanna see the wires in the circus anymore
I wanna dream and make believe people can fly
I don’t need to be reminded what it takes to kill the fun
I’ve got a head full of sharp knives

Yeah, it’s easy to get colder
And it’s easy to forget
So meet me where the light’s dim

We can wake up every mornin’
We can set ourselves on fire
And we can do it all again

The world don’t speak for us
They lack the confidence
Yeah, we’re only hearts and bones and blood
Oh, but we are giants
Giants

The walls are closing in
We climb and they descend
With nothing but the clouds against our skin
Oh, we are giants
Giants

I wanna roll around the darkness
‘Til the darkness goes away
‘Til the television finally tells the truth
You know everybody’s scared of things they don’t understand
And all the living they don’t do

Yeah, it’s easy to get colder
And it’s easy to forget
So meet me where the lights dim

We can wake up every mornin’
We can set ourselves on fire
And we can do it all again

The world don’t speak for us
They lack the confidence
Yeah, we’re only hearts and bones and blood
Oh, but we are giants
Giants

The walls are closing in
We climb and they descend
With nothing but the clouds against our skin
Oh, we are giants
Giants

I’m done tryin’ to fit in
And be half-forgiven
For things that I never did
We’re more than what scares us
We’re final and fearless
We’ll dance where the ice gets thin
Gets thin

The world don’t speak for us
They lack the confidence
Yeah, we’re only hearts and bones and blood
Oh, but we are giants
Giants

The walls are closing in
We climb and they descend
With nothing but the clouds against our skin
Oh, we are giants
Giants

sadness

Thursday, September 21st, 2017

I don’t know what I’m doing
I’ve been standing still
I spend my life burning bridges
And digging holes to fill

You gotta get low-ow-ow
You gotta get low-ow-ow
To get high
You gotta get low-ow-ow
You gotta get low-ow-ow
To get high

Yeah, I can feel you with me in the darkness
Reaching out a hand to pull me through
Sadness used to think that it owned me
Now, sadness has got to share me with you

You gotta get low-ow-ow
You gotta get low-ow-ow
To get high

I don’t know how you do it
You’re the calm at sea
You find flowers in the ruins
And the good in me

You gotta get low-ow-ow
You gotta get low-ow-ow
To get high
You gotta get low-ow-ow
You gotta get low-ow-ow
To get high

Yeah, I can feel you with me in the darkness
Reaching out a hand to pull me through
Sadness used to think that it owned me
Now, sadness has got to share me with you

You gotta get low-ow-ow
You gotta get low-ow-ow
To get high
You gotta get low-ow-ow
You gotta get low-ow-ow
To get high

You gotta lost to let go
You gotta lost to let go
You gotta lost to get free for a minute
See clear for a minute
Let go
You gotta lost to let go
You gotta lost to get free for a minute
See clear for a minute

I fell asleep
Had a dream
Bill Murray and I were friends
We drove the world
From Boston to Japan
Blasting old Van Halen
And one night over drinks
Bill started crying

He said to me “kid, of all the stupid things I ever did
You know, I let her go when I should have pulled her in”
And he handed me his cell phone
When I called you were on your plane
Moving back to Portland for the rain

I won’t only love you when you’re winning
Other fools pretend to understand
Come on take my hand and we’ll go down swinging
Let me be your man
Let me be your man

A hundred days
We hiked the coast
Of Galway in the rain
And Bill said something
Late one night in Spain
And it’s always just stuck with me

“You only get one person knows you best
And it’s temporary everybody else.”

I won’t only love you when you’re winning
Other fools pretend to understand
Come on take my hand and we’ll go down swinging
Let me be your man
Let me be your man

I’m done with sleep,
Imagined things,
Cause dreams aren’t dreams
Til you wake up
So wake up
Just wake up here with me

I won’t only love you when you’re winning
Other fools pretend to understand
Come on take my hand and we’ll go down swinging
Let me be your man
Let me be your man
