Track Name: Cherish You Alone
Well, I tried to drink you outta my skull
Sour wine surely took its toll
You're in my heart, you're in my head
While I'm dreaming of Chesed
You're my companion

Well, I whined and spouted at the air
It's not a crime if no one's there to care
I spewed it out
My vomit mouth, I threw it all up
and I lost my kind companion
I'd like to cut off my own tongue
I'd like to make it all undone

I will flow into your motion
I'll let go with you and then
I will ride into your ocean
On its tide I'll soak you in
I will crash in waves upon you
I will chill you to the bone
I will kiss and then caress you
I will cherish you,
Cherish you alone
I will
Cherish you alone

For you, an amulet made of acacia
For you, a seed to sink in fallow ground
For you my glorious is jubilation
My sweetest love, you turn me to a hound

Oh, nix it all and burn with adoration
Oh, nix it all and resonate with love
Hey, let it go these words I say
Down in your brain, driving me insane
Observe me as I nix it all for love

I will flow into your motion
I'll let go with you and then
I will ride into your ocean
On its tide I'll soak you in
I will crash in waves upon you
I will chill you to the bone
I will kiss and then caress you
I will cherish you,
Cherish you alone
I will
Cherish you alone
I will Cherish you alone
Track Name: When You Said
When you said you loved me
There might have just been something
When you rolled your eyes at me that way
When you said you loved me
Your words would not deceive me
A ray of light shot thru me anyway
Anyway…

I could cry.
I could measure all my teardrops.
I could fly away with all my butterflies
Or misbehave
Be a slave to what intoxicates me
Be a slave and hope to God this nausea pulls the stops and saves the day

When you said you loved me
There might have just been something
When you rolled your eyes at me that way
When you said you loved me
Your words would not deceive me
A ray of light shot thru me anyway
Anyway…

Me oh my.
Goosebump shivers stand my hairs up
Pitter pat, trip, tripping, stutter step – Don’t!
Don’t wanna look into your eyes
Don’t you dare!
Hook me, harass me, handcuff me
I will stare into your glare, pucker up, lean in for kisses from a snake

When you said you loved me
There might have just been something
When you rolled your eyes at me that way
When you said you loved me
Your words would not deceive me
A ray of light shot thru me anyway
When you said you loved me
I hoped for only nothing
I hoped that you would drift and wash away
When you said you loved me
I wished to God you’d leave me
Your words of loss got to me anyway…
Anyway…
Anyway…
Well, anyway!
