GHOST AND OWL There’s a ghost in this house But I don’t want to wake him There’s a ghost in this house But I don’t want to shake him Don’t know how to shake him There’s a bird that cannot fly Clipped his wings before they touched the sky So he sits and watches over me Sings a song of longing to be free Singing oh Sing a song for you sing a song for me Sing a song for you sing a song for me Do I cry in vain? I believe the universe is listening Sing a song for you sing a song for me Sing a song for me There’s a ghost in this house Keeps me up at night with his snoring There’s a bird in this house I close my eyes and I see him soaring Sing a song for you sing a song for me Sing a song for you sing a song for me Do I cry in vain? I believe the universe is listening Sing a song for you sing a song for me Sing a song for me

BLUE AND BORDERLINED i got a suitcase gotta get out of this place i'm used to running fast used to things that don't last i'm headed to the sea she traps and troubles me (that's what i need) storms to churn and rage to free me from this cage fly away to where the water meets the sky fly away got you tattooed on my mind blue and borderlined i got these aching wings you got your anchor strings and you'll just let me go you'll never fight you'll never know fly away to where the water meets the sky fly away got you tattooed on my mind fly away so no one can say goodbye fly away feel you fading from my mind horizon fading far behind blue and borderlined

CHEMICALS i woke up numb just three years ago thought my time had come my doctor said it wasn't so so he gave me pills to change the chemicals in my brain they made me feel alive they made me feel sane i'm gonna change (the chemicals in my brain) i'm gonna change so tired of feeling strange i'm gonna change i would try to eat so i could feel complete so i could feel anything but that's no easy feat i would try to kiss so i could feel bliss and everybody had a good time but my abyss is bottomless chorus i'm gonna change i wanna feel something real i'm gonna stick a needle in my vein i'm gonna feel the pain slip away

SKIPPING IN NYC i was skipping down the sidewalk on 6th avenue everybody looked at me like i was looney tunes they didn't understand i didn't have a care they put their noses in the air they didn't know i was in love i was in love i just realized it i found myself skipping down to Chinatown on the sidewalk there it's easy to get pushed around i stopped so i could get a tshirt made in red a message i could wear so everyone would know i am in love i am in love i took me by surprise the way i suddenly realized i am in love i am in love i just realized it today i'm in love yesterday i was not in love yesterday i simply cared for you but today today in the dirty subway my heart beat in a brand new way so now everybody knows why i skip around they smile and nod instead of looking down they understand why i can't keep my skip inside and rather than a shout i move my legs about i am in love i am in love i just realized it today i am in love and when you see me skipping up to you you'll realize the change my heart's been through and you'll say you'll say in your savoir faire way that you love me too side by side we skip back down to Chinatown i throw my brand new tshirt on the ground we get new tshirts made which accurately say so everyone can read so everyone can know we are in love we are in love we are in love today we are in love
