1.The Love Within (修改)

[Verse 1]
Lord, give me grace and dancing feet
As I conquer all anxiety
The angel told me not to fear
The power tools in me
For I have learnt the way to pray
Like a missile growing tall now
Wind the past into a knot
And let the love consume us
Let the love consume us
Let the love consume us

[Verse 2]
Can you hear the stars now sing
Resounding in D major?
As the girl vibration resonates
And pulls us up towards her
Take your shoes off, feel the earth
Beneath your feet, respond to touch
And let our laughter now ring forth
As the love consumes us

[Chorus]
The love within is moving upwards
Sweeter than any drug
The melody is taking over
Guide my hand through this path
Pull back the veil
Let your eyes meet this world
The love within is moving upwards
So don't you want to get high?
Don't you want to get high?

[Bridge]
Don't you want to get high?
Don't you want to get-
Don't you want to get high?

[Chorus]
The love within is moving upwards
Sweeter than any drug
The melody is taking over
Guide my hand through this path
Pull back the veil
Let your eyes meet this world
The love within is moving upwards
So don't you want to get high?
Don't you want to get high?




2.Only He Can Heal Me (修改)

[Intro]
(For only he can heal me)

[Verse 1]
There are times I get to feeling
That this world has stole my grace
When every day feels like a hustle
Every day I'm saving face
Tell a lie to make the paper
Put a little coin away
It's never-ending

[Verse 2]
When the trappings of the body
Lead me to that hopeless place
And I feel my spirit crumble
Under strain and under guilt
Lay me down in rivers cleansing
Where the tall grass grows and grows
And let me wait until
My saviour comes home

[Chorus]
For only he can heal me
Help me overcome it
For only he can heal me with his touch
Help me overcome it

[Verse 3]
From the towns and from the cities
Came a feeling of defeat
From the lame and from the wretched
Pouring forth unto the street
Lead me to my only temple
Where I overcome defeat
And let me rest there
By my saviour's feet

[Chorus]
For only he can heal me
Help me overcome it
For only he can heal me with his touch
Help me overcome it

[Outro]
(For only he can heal me)
(For only he can heal me)
(For only he can heal me)
(For only he can heal me)




3.So Real (修改)

[Verse 1]
Heartbreak the first, comes to me in bursts
You danced with him whilst I could see you
Although it hurts, tears are not enough
To dissolve all the pain I'm feeling
Must not much have mattered, must I?
Moving forwards
Did not take long to pass me by
Moving onwards

[Chorus]
What am I supposed to do
When the only good thing about me was you?
What I am supposed to feel?
As you kept the only part of me that was real
So real

[Verse 2]
I'll bet you'll claim to him I was insane
Too much like a girl, I bored you
Release a dove, let grace into your world
Be still your wicked tongue, I loved you
Once before our cracks did show
I know I pleased you
But now my baby's got new slang
And a taste for strangers

[Chorus]
What am I supposed to do
When the only good thing about me was you?
What I am supposed to feel?
As you kept the only part of me that was real
So real
So real

[Outro]
It's got to be real
It's got to be real, oh




4.The Good News (修改)

[Verse 1]
Spent my commission on
Another diversion and I
Don't got no meaning
No purpose left at all
My pastor tells me that my
My light is dimming and I
Spent too long drifting
In an ocean
It's OK
You just need faith
Been looking for answers
In the wrong place
But how do I tell them that the
There's something missing and I
Don't got no substance that you got

[Chorus]
Every day I go down to the water
And I pray since you left me that way
Oh Lord, I'm trying to keep my mind
On the good news that's in my heart

[Post-Chorus]
For the good, good news
For the good, good news
For the good, good news
For the good, good news
For the good, good news
For the good, good news
Since my baby left, my light
Refuses to rise
Like a bird without a song or
A sun that will not shine

[Verse 2]
Now I can make the ire
To everyone that I desire
Burning downward for the lost boys
At the very edge of town
Now I can spin a lie
That burns me up all through the night
Cause I've got no one home to answer to
This guy
Every day is a repeat
Like a carrier bag stuck in a tree
But I used to find my answers in the gospels of St John
But now I find them at the bottom of this shot, and

[Chorus]
Every day I go down to the water
And I pray since you left me that way
Oh Lord, I'm trying to keep my mind
On the good news that's in my heart

[Post-Chorus]
For the good, good news
For the good, good news
For the good, good news
For the good, good news
Don't got no meaning and I don't got no substance
For the good, good news
For the good, good news
Can't find no silence and I
Can't find no comfort
Since my baby left, my light
Refuses to rise
Like a bird without a song or
A sun that will not shine




5.Fortress (修改)

[Verse 1]
These sheets of ours
Shield our bodies like a fortress
They keep us safe
From harm
Intertwined
Our bodies lay there like a comma
The arch of your back
Invites desire
We put our bodies to the test
Follow the curve right down your neck
Your sweat, my sweat stuck in a web
And in the mirror, you relent
It's teasing me with every step
Reach down and feel how strong
My love grows just for you

[Chorus 1]
Pull me under, under the ocean
Cover my mouth with yours
Put it on me like no one's watching
Like it's the first time
And on the street
Our bodies ache for one another
I just can't wait
Till we're alone, mmm mmm

[Verse 2]
And I'm a fool for the sight
Of all the gold between your thighs
You still the sea
That's stirring deep in me
Make your base right here, next to me
As our notes blend in harmony
And when we sex, we hear the beat
And it's so serene

[Chorus 2]
Pull me under, under the ocean
Cover my mouth with yours
Put it on me like no one's watching
Like it's the first time
And if you're hungry, devour your morsel
Cover my mouth with yours
Put it on me like no one's watching
Like it's the first time

[Chorus 3]
Pull me under, under the ocean
Cover my mouth with yours
Put it on me like no one's watching
Like it's the first time we kissed




6.Different Drugs (修改)

[Verse 1]
Every time I go back home
Something's wrong, there's something missing
You're spinning away
From me
I don't bitch, no, I don't moan
But I can't try to fight this anymore
Our common ground
Has shifted
You're standing in the doorway
With a look I used to know
With all the best intentions
Somehow, our cover's blown
We're trapped inside this room
With no window or rear view
And now you're backing away from me
Well, what can I do?

[Verse 2]
And if there was a pill
We could take to find each other
Would you drop with me?
Would you follow me down?
And if there was a leaf
We could smoke to meet each other
Would you blaze with me?
Would you chase with me?
It started as a joyride
Just a way to let off steam
But now we're running off the road
Cause you're asleep at the wheel
Which way do you choose?
Cause right now I choose you
Do you still think of me fondly?
Do you still think of me?
I'm tryna broach the distance
That's growing in our lives
From the night until the morning
Like we're on different drugs

[Chorus]
Did I say too much?
Did I take too much?
The temptation to vacate
Seduces us

[Bridge]
I'm tryna beat the static
That's living in our hearts
Like white noise that's in the distance
That will only drown us out

[Chorus]
Did I say too much?
Did I take too much?
The temptation to vacate
Seduces us, oh

[Outro]
(It's like we're on different drugs)
(Different)
(It's like we're on different drugs)
(Different)
(It's like we're on different drugs)
(Different)
(It's like we're on different drugs)
(Different)
(It's like we're on different drugs)
(Different drugs, dif-dif-different)
(Different drugs, different)
(Diff, dif-dif-dif-dif-different)
(Drugs)




7.Into the Earth (修改)

[Verse 1]
This fennel tea that you bought for me
Well, it does its magic discretely
I wrote this song for you, it's true
In our only south facing room
See, I don't know what the future holds
But I hope we face it together
Cause rock and roll has got so old
Just give me neo-soul

[Chorus]
Into the earth, our bodies will go
We got to keep it all fluid
Into the earth, our bodies will go
You're gonna keep me good-looking

[Verse 2]
You've seen the colour of my cash
Does it not impress? Was I way too flash?
Are you backing away
From me?
Calm down, Yoshi, the fungi
Is helping this fun-guy deliver
When I get high, I dance all night
I'll sing you Al Green songs
I'm just trying to gently blur the lines
With my trusty sensimilia
Don't be so jaded or so coy
When you could just be familiar

[Chorus]
Into the earth, our bodies will go
We got to keep it all fluid
Into the earth, our bodies will go
You're gonna keep me good-looking

[Bridge]
Take a lover, start a life
And try to keep an open mind
I'll dress up for you, I scrub up nice
I'll make your mother proud
I'll make your mama proud
I'll make your mama proud

[Verse 3]
And if I stop
I won't go hungry cause I know how to steal
I got to thank my older brothers
For keeping me real

[Chorus]
Into the earth, our bodies will go
We got to keep it all fluid
Into the earth, our bodies will go
You're gonna keep me good-looking

[Bridge]
Take a lover, start a life
And try to keep an open mind
I'll dress up for you, I scrub up nice
I'll make your mother proud
I'll make your momma proud
I'll make your momma proud




8.My True Name (修改)

[Verse 1]
Into your eye line
Keep me in your sights
I asked about you
And how to get into your life
Like daylight through a stained-glass window
Our colours run
Her voice sings like the Thames in the morning
It makes me strong

[Chorus]
If you're looking for devotion
Then come to me
If you're fearing your emotions
You gotta believe me that it goes both ways

[Verse 2]
Into your orbit
I will not be denied
I asked about you
And how to keep you on my side
If we are part of the same constellation
Shifting in the night
She whispers to me 'Don't waste the daylight'
It brings me round

[Chorus]
If you're looking for devotion
Then come to me
If you're fearing your emotions
You gotta believe me that it goes both ways

[Verse 3]
Lean on me, lean on me
I'll take your strain
I'll soften the blow
I'll tease away
And I'll take on anyone
That tries to mess with us
Your love
Should be good enough

[Bridge]
From this day forward
You will call me by my real name
You must call me by my true name
Today
From this day forward
You will call me by my real name
You must call me by my true name
Today
From this day forward
You will call me by my real name
You must call me by my true name
Today
From this day forward
You will call me by my real name
You must call me by my true name
Today
Today
Today
Today
Today
Today
Today
Today
Today




9.Virtue (修改)

[Verse 1]
Temptation hides
In the space between
Lord, help me fight
This desire for fire
Words can cleanse and purify
Or tear down a pack of lies
In your presence, consequence
I can't stop trembling

[Chorus]
For all of my virtue
Why can I not hold the truth?
For all my good fortune
I would change my place with you
This path will lead us back
Will lead us back to ruin
For all of my virtue
Why can I not hold the truth?

[Post-Chorus]
This path will lead us back
Will lead us back to ruin
For all of my virtue
Why can I not hold the truth?

[Verse 2]
Once in a while
The urge resurfaces
So we split hairs
As rumours circulate
And there's a need to fertilise
Behind my lover's trusting eye
Like water drops on burning rocks
I can't stop trembling

[Chorus]
For all of my virtue
Why can I not hold the truth?
For all my good fortune
I would change my place with you
This path will lead us back
Will lead us back to ruin
For all of my virtue
Why can I not hold the truth?

[Outro]
I've fallen
I've fallen again
I've fallen
I've fallen again
I've fallen
I've fallen again
I've fallen




10.Exes (修改)

[Verse 1]
If you seek explanation
Well I'm afraid there's not one
See all I have are excuses
My daddy was a hunter and I am my father's son
There was a time for about two weeks
I thought you were the one
But I could tell you anything
You were more than a trick, you were more to me than all of it

[Chorus]
To all the exes
That I left behind
These words will fall short
But I must try

[Verse 2]
Everything I was proud of
With everything that I've done wrong
In your eyes, I was someone
With another history, another past
In the lobby of the Ace Hotel
You will not meet my eyes
Secrets spill on pillows shared
You were more than just light, you were more to me than all of it

[Chorus]




11.Living Lux (修改)

[Verse 1]
Shirtless and faded on the Champs-Élysées
The world was ours then
I had conviction, but you, you had style
Such a lethal combination
The years changed us, the money weighed us down
We lost our way
Let me spoil you, pick a place to go
I want to spend my money on you

[Chorus]
And don't you remember
How this began?
You begged me for a chance
Don't waste your sorry
No, don't waste your goodbyes
Tonight
From hand to mouth and now
We're living lux

[Verse 2]
I order the lobster, and you, the Moët
The waitress thinks that we can't pay, no
What does she know? Our pockets are full-grown
And we've earned the right to fine dine
So raise your glass, my old friend
For we both know that this is the end
For the times we fought and the times we shared
I'll sing you a song the way I used to then

[Chorus]
Don't you remember
How this began?
You begged me for a chance
Don't waste your sorry
No, don't waste your goodbyes
Tonight
From hand to mouth and now
We're living lux
We're living lux




12.Eden (修改)

[Verse 1]
Underneath the iron cloud
That will not let my daylight out
So I smoke myself until I go
See-through
Atomized and bugging out
Signal fades in the CBD
So I hold my breath until I start
To glow

[Chorus]
Take me to the garden
Stand with me naked by the tree
Feed me poisoned apples
Feed me till I forget everything
With each bite we take
Let the moonlight awaken in us
So we can dance
To the beat of the drums

[Verse 2]
Underfoot this serpent ruled
Watching us with a crystal gaze
Eyes that record every
Wicked thought
There are times I feel like
I've seen everything
That I need to see
Oh, make me someone new

[Chorus]
And take me to the garden
Stand with me naked by the tree
Feed me poisoned apples
Feed me till I forget everything
With each bite we take
Let the moonlight awaken in us
So we can dance
To the beat of the drums




13.New Blood (修改)

[Verse 1]
I've been living too long in the tundra
I've been living too long at sea
And all my loved ones
Forgot about me
So I tame the urge to fight back
Sounding off to who I see
I used to be a renegade
But now I'm just me

[Chorus]
With this new blood, you'll hear me
I'm making you a deal
I kept my house in order
So I dare you, I dare you, I dare you to rise

[Verse 2]
They said they're going to teach me a lesson
They wanna show me how to kneel
I used to be a wild one
But now I'm done
When I brought you an offering of honey
They said you needed blood
And in that moment
I made my choice

[Bridge]
Hear my prayer and clear the corners
Let this blood wash away all the sins of all the fathers
Guide my hand and on my honour
I will keep your words alive, I will keep you in my heart

[Chorus]
With this new blood, you'll hear me
I'm making you a deal
I kept my house in order
So I dare you, I dare you, I dare you to rise

[Chorus]
With this new blood, you'll hear me
I'm making you a deal
I kept my house in order
So I dare you, I dare you, I dare you to rise

[Outro]
(I dare you, I dare you, I dare you)
(To rise)
(I dare you, I dare you, I dare you)
(To rise)




14.Paraiso (修改)

[Verse 1]
It was a look that I understood
In another life, maybe I would have been yours
Pictured in white standing by the bar
Like a wrecking ball, like a Japanese weight
It makes the waters rise
In me

[Pre-Chorus]
How'd you do that thing you do?
This beautiful charmer could be a deceiver too
It's making me do things I mustn't do
My appetite for love is now a hunger thirst

[Chorus]
Whoever you are

[Verse 2]
We spoke of Lagos and Rotterdam
Dancing cheek to cheek, get behind me, Satan
And all my good will is coming loose
Like a ball of yarn, like a bad excuse
It makes the embers glow
In me, it's your mood

[Pre-Chorus]
How'd you do that thing you do?
This beautiful charmer could be a deceiver too
It's making me do things I mustn't do
My appetite for love is now a hunger thirst

[Chorus]
Whoever you are
Whoever you are

[Bridge]
I don't believe in coincidence
You were sent this way for me
For it takes two to step this dance
Let us find a quiet place to sit
Into night is all
Let me gaze upon your lashes
Let it be known
That I gave myself completely over
Paraíso
Paraíso




15.Evening Song (修改)

[Verse 1]
There's a spirit
In our bedroom
That lives between the walls
He listens deeply
To our music
Manifests when we are wrong
In the evening (there's a spirit)
As we lay sleeping (in our bedroom)
He peers into our thoughts
He guides us gently (he listens deeply)
To one another (to our music)
To the point when our dreams meet

[Chorus]
For I have a message, it's in my voice
For I have a message
For I have a message, it's in my voice
For I have a message

[Verse 2]
He is there in (there's a spirit)
Leaky faucets (in our bedroom)
In the creak of wooden floors
As our heartstrings (he listens deeply)
Start to harden (to our music)
As our love becomes unspun
(It's in my voice)
He can sense that (in the evening)
We are drifting (as we lay sleeping)
In the autumn of our love
(It's in my voice)
In the morning (he guides us gently)
When we awaken (to one another)
And our love is all restored

He says
He says

[Chorus]
For I have a message, it's in my voice
For I have a message
For I have a message, it's in my voice
For I have a message

[Bridge]
If you should fall or come undone
My voice will lead you home
If you should fall or come undone
My voice will lead you home
