Honesty 03:08
I spent all-day Making sure I wasn't late To sit inside the car and wait for you We spent all night Making each other feel alright Under street lights You turned around and said Be honest But not too honest Be careful With what you choose to say (With what you choose to say ) I want it A little too much And it tears me up Makes me wonder why This feeling won't die We talked about love and selfishness Life's insignificance Why the ones we hold tight Can have the sharpest bite I am having trouble acting normal now Are you okay? Are we okay? We spent all night Making each other feel alright In the moonlight You turned around and said Be honest But not too honest Be careful With what you choose to say (With what you choose to say ) I want it A little too much And it tears me up Makes me wonder why This feeling won't die Haven’t seen you in days My heart is feeling betrayed I just want you to know I hope this wasn’t a phase Love is a losing game It always ends up the same way Be honest But not too honest Be careful With what you choose to say (With what you choose to say ) I want it A little too much And it tears me up Makes me wonder why This feeling won't die

Breathless 03:42
I want to take you out tonight We’ll make it last forever The moon in your eyes The moon in your eyes Save your words Our hearts are beating now The world is slowing down We’re on our own It leaves us breathless Every kiss We know every moment Could be like this Feeding off the energy Feeling your eyes on me We hold each other tight We’ll make it last forever The moon in your eyes The moon in your eyes Save your words Our hearts are beating now The world is slowing down We’re on our own It leaves us breathless Every kiss We know every moment Could be like this It leaves us breathless It leaves us breathless It leaves us breathless It leaves us breathless Save your words Our hearts are beating now The world is slowing down We’re on our own It leaves us breathless Every kiss We know every moment Could be like this

Four Years 03:26
What were you thinking Taking all of that? Did you find comfort throwing them back? What were you doing going to that house? What did you find that you couldn’t talk about? ‘Cause we talk for hours And get nowhere Yeah we talked four years And wound up here What were you thinking Making all that noise? Did you find comfort hearing your own voice? What were you doing going to that house? What did you find that you couldn’t talk about? ‘Cause we talk for hours And get nowhere Yeah we talked four years And wound up here

Like The Movies By NYIKO Take my hand We’re dancing in the street We don’t need no music Keeping rhythm with our heartbeats You run into the ocean Now you’re looking back at me Asking questions like Isn’t this meant to be? Underneath the moon Howling like lovers do Even the brightest stars burn out How do you know we won’t too? You want love like the movies Wishing on a star Someone who truly sees You for who you are  When house lights turn up And the credits start to roll Will you stay until the end Even if it’s all pretend? It’s the only love you know A letter On a doorstep In the hometown That you never left You open and read it And start feeling something You just want to feel Anything but nothing You’re hoping and dreaming That this is the one who Will make you feel like you were Underneath the moon Howling like lovers do Even the brightest stars burn out How do you know we won’t too? You want love like the movies Wishing on a star Someone who truly sees You for who you are  When house lights turn up And the credits start to roll Will you stay until the end Even if it’s all pretend? It’s the only love you know The critics will say what they will And all of your friends will have their opinions You open and read it And start feeling something You just want to feel Anything but nothing You’re hoping and dreaming That this is the one who Will make you feel like you were You want love like the movies Wishing on a star Someone who truly sees You for who you are  When house lights turn up And the credits start to roll Will you stay until the end Even if it’s all pretend? It’s the only love you know

You’re the smoke filling up my lungs You’re the drink filling up my cup Oh I take your pills like their honey And I don't ask questions You could leave me bruised and bloody And i would tell myself i’m lucky I love you but you’re bad for my health I don’t know why I do this to myself And every time I feel like I could die It’s you, it’s you, it’s you Keeping me alive You’re the thought keeping me awake You’re the blood rushing through my veins Oh I take your words as truth And I don't ask questions You could take away my food You have my cake and you eat it too I love you but you’re bad for my health I don’t know why I do this to myself And every time I feel like I could die It’s you, it’s you, it’s you Keeping me alive I love you but you’re bad for my health I don’t know why I do this to myself And every time I feel like I could die It’s you, it’s you, it’s you I love you but you’re bad for my health I don’t know why I do this to myself And every time I feel like I could die It’s you, it’s you, it’s you Keeping me alive

Call the boys inside Tell them it’s alright There’s no shame in your pain We need an exemplary Symbol of masculinity For these boys Beyond violence and raising a voice It’s the quiet moments That we choose to ignore And the space it creates is innate suffering In these boys In these boys These boys Call the boys inside Tell them it’s alright There’s no use for abuse We need an exemplary Symbol of femininity For these boys Beyond sexualizing a voice It’s the quiet moments That we choose to ignore And the space it creates is innate suffering In these boys In these boys These boys For these boys Call the boys inside Tell them it’s alright There’s no shame in your pain For these boys These boys For these boys For these boys For these boys For these boys For these boys For these boys For these boys For these boys For these boys

Glow 03:25
I walked into this room and fell in love a hundred times Full of pretty young faces and heart-shaped behinds You got your third eye watching and it’s working overtime I’m a lover of the night I put it all on the line Now watch me shine Glow I’m gonna glow Turn the lights off I illuminate the room I’m gonna glow For you You walked into this room and broke a hundred different hearts They’ll all chomping at the bit to get a piece of your art I see your third eye looking for a place to relax But I’m your lover for the night I’m not taking any chance Now watch me dance Glow I’m gonna glow Turn the lights off I illuminate the room I’m gonna glow For you I’m gonna glow for you I’m gonna glow for you I’m gonna glow for you For you I’m gonna glow for you I’m gonna glow for you I’m gonna glow for you For you I’m gonna glow for you I’m gonna glow for you I’m gonna glow for you For you I’m gonna glow for you I’m gonna glow for you I’m gonna glow for you Glow I’m gonna glow Turn the lights off I illuminate the room I’m gonna glow For you

Live Long 03:25
(I want to seize every day) (Until the last light fades) I wanna live long enough To sing songs To my daughter when she Is having trouble falling asleep Oh how lovely It would be To love unconditionally So tonight we gotta take it easy Take it easy Take it easy Take it easy For me I wanna live long enough To write songs As a father Do you see that possibility In me? Oh how lovely It would be To love unconditionally So tonight we gotta take it easy Take it easy Take it easy Take it easy For me I want to seize every day Until the last light fades I want to seize every day Until the last light fades I want to seize every day I want to live long Enough Take it easy Take it easy Take it easy For me Take it easy (I want to seize every day Until the last light fades) Take it easy (I want to seize every day Until the last light fades) Take it easy (I want to live long Enough) For me

We found our love at the end of the summer Before the days fade into grey Two hearts aligned Of the same kind  But the nights grow dark and there's nowhere to stay  Now I'm just the ghost in your dreams And you're fighting for sleep  It takes the life out of me Our love is a vampire it seems A vampire it seems Two hearts aligned In perfect time  But they’re skipping beats and growing farther away Was this what you had in mind? Am I what you hoped to find? Is this a nightmare? You know I still care But I’m the ghost in your dreams And you're fighting for sleep  It takes the life out of me Our love is a vampire it seems A vampire it seems
