freshman

Since then it's been a book you read in reverse
So you understand less as the pages turn

Don't, don't tell me when it's coming
No don't, don't, I just want to see it for myself

I know our filthy hands can wash one another's
And not one speck will remain

When the stars, and the moon
And the sky, fall through
I'd throw them all away when I'm hollow
Deep as the sea goes, all I know is
I would throw it all away

What are the odds, what are the odds?
This ends and we don't meet again

When your love lets you go you only want love more
Even when love wasn't what you were looking for
Speak slow, tell me love where do we go... ah ah

And you don't mind, you smile
And say the world doesn't fit with you
I don't believe you, you're so serene
Careening through the universe
Your axis on a tilt, you're guiltless and free
I hope you take a piece of me with you

So what if you catch me,
Where would we land?
In somebody's life
For taking his hands





sophomore

Tell myself, on the ride home
Getting tired, hating all I've known
Holding on, like it's all I have
Count me out, when it's clear that I, find it hard to say
And you, find it hard to care

We’ll drive for miles maybe never turn off
We’ll find a cathedral city you can be handsome I’ll be pretty

Blue jean baby, L.A. lady, seamstress for the band
Pretty eyed, pirate smile, you'll marry a music man
Ballerina, you must have seen her dancing in the sand

Take me back to the other place
Take me back to when I'm alone
I can see all the little things
That once could make me whole

I tripped on my way in
And got kicked outside, everybody saw...

My love, she is the wind blowing
Through my heart in my chest
And she's the sun, the afternoon
I've seen her shining the whole day through

Oh my love, it swims in the deepest oceans of fear
And as soon as you lower your head
I am here

I'm writing the folks back home to tell them
Hey I, hey I'm doing all right




junior

It hasn't felt like this before
It hasn't felt like home
Before you

Is this the part where you let go
And sinking under a shadow
Is this the part where you find out
I'm there for you

Sometimes all I can do is weep, weep, weep
With all this rain fallin' down

I wanna come home to you and only you
Cause making love to just anyone ain't happenin'
I just gotta be with you

I love your cranium, I love your neck,
What the heck, I love your arteries, too.
I love your fibia and your tibia,
I love your bone tissue.

Huggin' and squeezin' and kissin' and pleasin'
Together forever through rain or whatever
Yeah yeah yeah yeah you and me




senior

I want a dream lover
So I don't have to dream alone

If the sky that we look upon
Should tumble and fall
And the mountain should crumble to the sea
I won't cry, I won't cry
No I won't shed a tear
Just as long as you stand, stand by me

Once I get you up there I'll be holding you so near
You might hear angels cheer 'cause we're together

Oh dream maker, you heart breaker
Wherever you're going, I'm going your way

If to distant lands I scatter
If I sail to farthest seas
Would you find and firm and gather 'til I only dwell in Thee?


Well you can't have a dream and cut it to fit
But when I saw you, I knew
We go together
Like a wink and a smile
