Track Name: Suburbs
Verse 1
So far past the setting sun
Beyond where the wreckage won
By the ocean
Oh yeah

Painted dreams of L.A.
Bleach blonde, surfing on the face
Of the West coast
Doing what you love most
Yeah

Chorus
I’m just a girl from the suburbs
Living through her lovers
Flying on what you give to me
I become fascinated
Kind of liberated
Take me on
Where you going babe?
Where you going babe, where you going baby?
Ahhh

Verse 2
You see something in me
Green grass and topiary
And the sadness

Lying under clothes on a line
Your body taking over time
Making something
Come alive from nothing
Yeah

Chorus

Bridge
Am I coming on strong
Living on your love
Praying you’re the one
Dreaming on your arm

I’m just a girl from the suburbs
Living through her lovers
Flying on what you give to me
I become fascinated
Kind of liberated
Take me on, where you going babe

Where you going babe
Track Name: Attention
Verse 1
Harder to lose
Than love and affection
You want to use
Every dimension
Good, bad and the feeling so low down

Chorus
Oh you say, you’re over your invention
But you can’t let go
You can’t let go of the attention

Verse 2
So sensitive to any direction
Give yourself a name
And live by extension
See stars in the wake of old goodbyes

Chorus
Bridge
Lalalala
Chorus
Track Name: Golden Kimono
V1
Golden kimono
Looking out the window
Talking to your hands
Drawing a map of the fire escape
I see inside your ocean
Full of starfish
Full of darkness
Alone with you

CHORUS
Blue wave
I might be your only hope tonight
Let me stay
Separated by your lonely light
Oooh, oooh, oooh X2

V2
Take me to your party
Where nobody knows me
Dress me in your clothes
Paint on my face with your rivers of gold

PRE
I see inside your ocean
Full of kindness
Full of blindness
Sinking deeper into your

CHORUS
Blue wave
I might be your only hope tonight
Let me stay
Separated by your lonely light
Oooh, oooh, oooh X2

BRIDGE
Let’s walk underwater
Let’s see if we can hold our breath
I’ve loved you forever
But you say you’re not ‘there yet’
But you treat me baby
To the bad shit in your mind
And you preach my faith
And you make me think your mine
My blue wave
I might be your only hope tonight
Oooh, Oooh, Oooh
Track Name: True To You
True To You
Verse 1
So close to the bone
I see you in him
Your heart, your politics
The way you showed him how to love me
and to know himself
his fragile heart
was yours first

Chorus
And I know doesn’t make sense
When you see the way we are together
But I want you to know
I will be true to you

Verse 2
All of this time
He needed you too
Yeah I know how you see me
I feel the friction in your smile
Its not lost on me
Every fear you had awaken then
Stayed so alive

Chorus
And I know doesn’t make sense
When you see the way we are together
But I want you to know
I will be true to you

I know it causes you pain
And the emptiness can drive you crazy
But I want you to know
In my way
I will be true to you

Outro
Ooh I’ll be true to you
Ooh I’ll be true to you
Ooh I’ll be true to you
Track Name: Soft Reply
It's a soft reply
to a cold winter
this spring the flowers are pale
when they open their eyes
lying in the shade
starring at the sun
calling your name
falling for the one

after all
after it all

a sleepless night
in shallow water
skipping waves in a dream
awake at the seams
and seeing your face
falling from heaven

after all
after it all
after all
Track Name: Powerlines
Verse 1
I’m only 23 but I spend a lot of time
Wondering, if I’m doing it right
I relied on my cleverness
And never learned to fight
Thought I’d be braver when this shell thrust into light

Pre
And we were chasing guys
Singing hit me baby
one more time

Chorus
Kissing girls, chasing guys
Getting drunk
Getting high
Lose your mind swinging from powerlines

Verse 2
Believe in me and I know I’ll make it right
I didn’t know then that time wasn’t on our side

Pre
When we were chasing guys
Singing hit me baby
One more time

Chorus

Bridge
I wanted to see you
I wanted to find out
Who you are now
Can you believe in me
Now I’m fragile as a little bird
Fragile as a little bird
In your hands
In your hands

Outro
Kissing girls
Chasing guys
Getting drunk
Getting high
Lose your mind
Swinging from powerlines
Oh yeah yeah
Oh woah yeah
Track Name: Dragging Your Bones
Verse 1
Look at me playing to your room
Breaking up the audience like you used to, used to, used to

I see you little butterfly
Who's that boy back there begging for, begging for, begging for?

Chorus
Dragging your bones
To the airport
Dragging your bones
To the airport

Verse 2
Call me when you're back in town
Takes a big man to admit when your, admit when your, admit when your wrong

Now when you see me around
Taking over your life
It's alright, alright

Chorus
Dragging your bones to the airport
Dragging your bones to the airport
Dragging your bones to the airport

It's alright, alright
It's alright, alright
