they can't be talking to me this isn't real how can i stop the nothing? i'm just a little girl
three thousand miles between most of your friends and you wish they could meet they have so much in common and you can't believe that you are in portland with your good friend from new york on vacation the world it is shrinking, pathways intertwining some of it's planning a lot of it's timing suddenly face to face with jake and jack you ask them to sing you their songs back to back jack says "i'm alone but i'm not scared" then jake says "i am alone but not afraid"
i wish i could be that brave but the second person's always in the way i tried to hide you where no one could find you but you were a baby and i was a little girl they caught us and brought us back to their world that's when i decided the only place i could hide was in the stories and dreams in the seams of my mind i was so busy dreaming, running from demons i didn't even hear you screaming
yesterday you got an email from prague that said me and my friends think your band really rocks you can't believe it's all really real you don't know what to say, you don't know how to feel you think it's a joke just like in the sixth grade when nick asked you out then he laffed in your face you prepare for the worst when you go out on stage you block out the crowd, you dissociate the music's your blood and the words are your breath you sing and you sing like it's all there is left
rock-a-bye baby, beautiful thing don't ever, ever let them clip your wings when the best and the worst coexist there's a fist fight between what's left and the right of way i hope you believe me when i say things will get better give it one more day
it's hard to sleep when the lullabys are songs you don't want to miss you could listen all night long and you can't believe that you are in texas and jeff lightning lewis is sitting right next to you singing the song about the three quarter moon you squint your eyes and look inside you and the fractions and fragments all become whole the music erases the pain in your soul the tears in your brain that your memory saved evaporate and skate away
