Track Name: Green in Those Baby Blues
I remember all the puzzles
That you used to bend the rules
I was tempted by confession
But I saw your face refuse

I was always 23 when you called
Though the furrows weren't convincing
And the crow's feet lingered far too long

She was sinking from the corner of my mind
When the past was just revision
And the sidekicks held the prize

Too much hanging by the water
Til we're wading at our knees
An accomplice for the nightbirds
When the station drones repeat

But there's green in those baby blues

I recovered all precision
From a wilted aim I threw
You're a shield that won't be shadowed
An affray that I pursued

Put it all on 23 when you called
In a town that paints it's riddles
To the punch-drunk floors below

Taking shelter from the ashes in my eyes
Hanging all my contradictions
From the sparks that fled the fire

It's impossible to wonder
How the breaks fell in your hands
An acclaim found in translation
An appeal on your command

But there's green in those baby blues
Track Name: Head Above the Water
Keep your head above the water,
And your eyes beneath the clouds.
Tell your daddy's only daughter
She's the girl I love.

With her hands that tell the weather,
With her eyes that dance for me,
With her lips that whisper 'Never',
She's the only girl for me.

I won't fight to have and hold her,
I won't run to join the fray.
Though I'll never make a soldier,
Meet me on my wedding day.

Keep your head above the water,
And your eyes beneath the clouds.
Tell your daddy's only daughter,
She's the girl I love.
She's the girl I love.
