LYRICS:

SPACE FOR DAYS

 

Pick up the pieces and give it just another day

Quiet like lilac moving from the sun to the shade

Go by, step inside, it’s alright, have a drink on me

Monday’s fine, I don’t mind, what’s your name? 

Talk about the mundane grey goose; pick the pocket recluse, loose, 

Looking out the door to find

Outside conversations slow down, now it’s in the same vein, 

Pull out another spirit, man. 

 

I got space for days

What I matter didn’t say

Still keeping same

 

I got space for days

What I matter didn’t say

Still keeping same

 

Let it all breathe

 

Outside conversation slow down, now it’s in the same vein, 

Pull out another spirit, man.

 

POUR DOWN

 

Well it poured down rain this morning

What a time for the clouds to let it all out

 

And I was trying to tell you what I was thinking

When the words they all held tight to my tongue

And then I fell down into this groove, believing

That I could surely find some calm in sound

 

Well it poured down rain this morning

What a time for the clouds to let it all out

 

If I was a bird in flight, I’d listen for and turn my eye

To a rooftop oh nearby

So I could watch the trees green

Moving as the sky tapped light

And rolling off the leaves to dive

Deep into the earth

 

I would try to tell you what I was thinking

When the words they all held tight to my tongue

And I would try to tell you what I was thinking

I could surely find some calm in sound

  

 Well it poured down rain this morning

What a time for the clouds to let it all out

 

TELEPHONE

 

Go along as you were

Sinking through the floor

Speak up the words you know

Hold on the telephone

 

Ohh what are you gonna do 

 

Go along it's alright

Call on the other line

Speak up, time to go  

Hold on the telephone

 

Ohh what are you gonna do 

 

I am here now

So come along

We are here now

So come along

  

Ohh what are you gonna

 

SIDEWALK

 

Why, did you fall all the time

and begin, to forget our names?

 

Who, did the weight fall into?

Breathe, worry fall away

 

Hey there, watcha doin'?

Would you leave that burden behind?

 

Go, lay down on the floor

The window, light shine through

 

If only just for a moment

it would shine on a dream just right

 

Back when there were no sidewalks

No long roads, no dark and stormy dusty trails

This chica called Josefina,

With blue eyes, saw the world as if it all stopped

 

Right now the tree outside

Is the one that she would surely like to climb

Up and up and up and up she'll go

'Til dark clouds are far and bright below

 

And I can see her now

Dancing through the sky

It’s a marvelous sight 

 

Green lights on the hill side

It’s a marvelous sight

 

WHEN I FELL OUT…

 

Hush

Hush

I need you

I bleed you

 

Touch

Touch

You're gone now

Let it take you

 

When I sat alone what was I thinking?

Thoughts and memories creeping in

A hue of blue I turned, I could see then

Oh but I could not stop

 

When I fell out it was like a dream

From a dark sky the moon cried down to me  

He said "I’m ashamed"

And with long arms, he dropped me alone in the sea 

 

By the light tall waves crashed into mountains,

The sun pointed down to a fallen tree, 

Just like that tree we will all fall and

Break down to dirt in time 

 

Oh I watched it all

I was only thinking:

Am I living inside a dream?

 

I said fuck it all

I could sure believe in

A dream more serene than it seems

 

INNERSTATE

 

I pick apart the brains of the interstate and you catch me wide awake to see that I've been dreaming

Put the book on the floor with every knock at my front door it reminds me it isn't worth reading, anymore

But still I read it everyday, searching for the words that play like beams of light inside of an avalance

Out of mind and out of sight, I can tell tonight's the night the day never cared to shine on

 

Say goodbye to the golden leaves that grace the ground beneath your feet, a simple echo of the days that are to come

Could've tried to light a spark to the fire burning in the dark for an eternity that felt like a day

See it now, the dragonfly, skaters dancing in the sky as it falls down into the ocean

What they wrote, I cannot say, watch it now, clear as day, everyone we have is a moment

 

JOSEFINA

 

Uno dos tres

Cuatro cinco seis siete

 

¡AY, QUÉ PENA!

 

There she goes again,

And she’s blown it

This train is…

And she knows it

 

Desperté pensando que todo andaba bien

¡Ay, qué pena!

Todo iba perfecto hasta recién

¡Ay, qué pena!

Calientas la pava pero no cebas los mates

¡Ay, qué pena!

No es lo mismo que voz hacías antes

¡Ay, qué pena!

Esto no puede seguir estando así

¡Ay, qué pena!

Para mi, voz ya dejaste de existir

 

EXPIRATION DATE

 

You know it’s more than that I mean

That’s why I came right back

But I’m awfully scared you see

More than ordinarily

 

SIDEWALK SLAMMER

 

Yesterday I found myself standing in the middle of the road,

Wheels turning on both sides to and fro

Every time I tried to take a step out, a car would roll by 

Tellin' me it's not my turn, so step aside

 

If it’s all the same to you, I’ll spend the night on the moon

Drinking champagne 'til the blues wash away 

You can’t go there, you're stuck here

It's a damn shame

 

I began to take bigger and bigger steps out, lost my feet and spin around,

Wind blows by like a house falling down, I can’t catch myself

Then I saw you up there on the moon and I knew that I could be there too

i took the biggest step that I possibly could and landed next to you 

 

 If its all the same to you, we could dance on the moon 

Drinking champagne 'til I can’t see that road no more 

No more, no more

Check it out now

 

¿What

Is

Yes?
