Track Name: Golden Boy
[Yeah, I could have fallen on the time]

A golden boy,
and a thank you,
a road long walked,
and a song repeating,
and I am the sun,
dim-lit and cool,
and the road must be walked.

So am I in love?
Or just in my head?
So am I loving you?
Track Name: Wallf
There's a kind of constant love,
there's a kind of permutation to the love,
we hold so dear,
we hold so dear to us,
the colors of our hearts and bodies,
our bodies,
my body aches for the color.
Track Name: Autumn Song
Can we, just for one second, unhinge?
Just to see what it's like,
just to feel the blood in our veins.

Can we meet in the spring?
Rule the evening storm,
share our warmth,
and when the rain dries,
to each other we say,
Track Name: Empress
"Splitting cracks in the pavement,
there's nothing left for us to conquer,
for whatever reason.
Track Name: Your Arms
All we want is the moment of bliss,
when we can say,

It could end right now,
and we wouldn't care.
We've felt so much,
even until now."

In so short a time,
I just need to be in your arms.

Just know,
I tried,
I tried so hard.
Track Name: Something Perfect
Do you feel,
the skin, the muscles, the bones?
Or do you feel a thought?
That's all I can wish for,
I can only have myself to offer,
I only want to share so much,

Can you think of something perfect?
Our warmth shared in the rain, again,
Can you think of something perfect?
Bits of our childhood saying,
Track Name: Sunship
"Let's say we missed those halcyon days,
we missed those halcyon days."
Track Name: Leo Sunshine
Oh, apologies, I'm a fool,
what can I love besides you?
Track Name: Ankh
Let's walk home in the dark,
let's get our clothes drenched in the rain, again,
let's walk through this door and into forever.
