Not My Body 04:43
This is not my body No, they made a mistake Still every morning I move these arms and these legs And I turn this head And I look your way And I try my best to say the things I think you want me to say Is it all a mistake? I’ve been looking for the answers in the palms of these hands Can’t say for sure if the stars understand In the mirror now Just a pile of bones A hollowed out version of someone I left on the side of the road Where did everything go? Maybe all that’s left are fragments of myself Never feels like enough to be said So I drown it out instead Maybe all that’s left are fragments of myself Will it ever feel like enough Will it ever feel like

Doctor says “take those pills, You’ll be alright, I know that you will. Nothing wrong with dulling the edges of a too-sharp mind, You’ll be just fine” So I choke them down, And I lose my head The sweet decline to the softened step I turned my back, but I heard what they said They said, “you sweet, sweet girl Go back to bed” Maybe I’m off the rails Somewhere between here and Montreal I lost my grip, I lost sight of it all I slowed myself from a sprint to a crawl And now my back is pinned against the wall He talked me down, he told me I was good He loved me still, like I knew that he would In the shadows where I once stood I see light and lines, and weathered wood Maybe I’m off the rails I can be as sweet as you need me to be But don’t put me behind the wheel Because I’m going to steer us right off the rails Doctor says “take those pills, You’ll be alright, I know that you will. Nothing wrong with dulling the edges of a too-sharp mind, You’ll be just fine”

Garden 03:10
Planted myself a garden To colour in my point of view It’s overgrown since I’ve started Pulling petals, Thinking to myself— Does he love you Does he love you or not Roses rest on the counter He’s holding me like there’s never been anybody else What was mine is now ours We’re dancing in the kitchen And all the while I’m thinking All the while— Does he love you Does he love you or not Do I love you Do I love you or not Flowers keep growing higher A cold daydream of growing older too Half the world is on fire Who am I to sit with my head in my hands Just trying to understand How I love you Do I love you or not Does he love you Does he love you or not

Garden II 05:06
On the edge of it all I scream to hear A little part of my stays A little disappears I’m so sick of second-guessing So sick of second-guessing Every good thing that I see Every good thing that happens to me So I’m burying my burdens I’m burying my burdens There’s no need for hurting No more No more

Good Year 04:28
I thought that I saw you Driving your car through The back parking lot Where we used to shop I said I was fine I'm finding I’m not I wander the aisles Stare at the cereal for a while Thought I heard you calling my name The days, they came and went All my time was spent with my head down How do I start letting it go? How will it end? When will I know? Don’t want to stay down But scared of the fall I’m a balancing act That’s all Been speaking in tongues It’s touch and it’s go With nowhere to run And nothing to show When I fall apart, nobody knows It’s all spinning around me I’ve got nothing to ground me I went to the house It all looks the same The baby blue couch The photoless frames And I’m just outside And nothing is clear My nose to the glass And I can still hear you say It’ll be a good year It’ll be a good year It’ll be a good year It’ll be a good year It’ll be a good year It’ll be a good year It’ll be a good, good, good, good year

I can hear your voice in my ear It’s ringing loud, it’s sharp, it’s clear Calling me back to yesteryear Some cruel parade of youthful days, disappeared Are you sick, or are you lonely? Wasting all your hours only filling my head with regret Then I said, “wait, no— I’m not finished here yet” All this time I’ve been holding the space on your side of the bed I can see how it’ll all play out I’ll get the kids, and you’ll get the house That’s how the world works now Things get hard, we close the book, we burn it down Are you sick, or are you lonely? Wasting all your hours only filling my head with regret Everything I could’ve said Am I sick or am I lonely? Wasting all my hours only filling my head with regret Then I said, “wait, no— I’m not finished here yet” All this time I’ve been holding the space on your side of the bed I’ve been writing everyday, Just trying to rid myself of any power you might have over me Under my breath Edge of my lips Send a message, say you’re proud of everything that I am now You’re holding to a photograph that’s faded I try so hard to see the light behind your eyes, but how can I when you have only brought me to the darkest of places The darkest of places But I hold the space I still hold the space for you

Keeping Time 04:24
I’ve been having trouble keeping time A whole thought’s a half-step behind I slow it down and seem to miss my spot In the meantime I’m running, tripping, busy buying-in to it all A stop in New York wasn’t what I thought it’d be Wish I could see it through your eyes Wish I could see it through I know the moon isn’t there for me to hold on to Now I keep watching people pass me by It pulls the focus from the corner of my eye So I’m using horoscopes to plan my life There’s got to be something bigger than me, than you I know the moon isn’t there for me to hold on to It’s true I know the moon isn’t there for me to hold on to Well I’ve been having trouble keeping time, keeping time, keeping time And I’ve been having trouble keeping time, keeping time Oh, I’ve been having trouble keeping time, keeping time, keeping time And I’ve been having trouble, I’ve been having trouble Every time I close my eyes Another year passes by Every time I close my eyes Another year passes by Every time I close my eyes Another year passes by Every time I close my eyes It’s true I know the moon isn’t there for me to hold on to
