Cocoon 03:52
Darling You deserve everything One day you’ll realize Your heart Wraps around everything In sight Though these times are ripe with strife So much love Ain't that hard to find And though this does confuse the mind So much love Is always in your life When you’re cold I'll be your cocoon Darling, you’ll feel better soon Honey You deserve To be surprised Just take it Slowly One day at a time Though these times are ripe with strife So much love Ain't that hard to find And though this does confuse the mind So much love Is always in your life Your life When you’re cold I'll be your cocoon Darling, you’ll feel better soon You are truly one of a kind Let your kindness be eulogized Lift your spirit into the sky I will be there right by your side You are truly one of a kind Let your kindness be eulogized Lift your spirit into the sky I will be there right by your side If you’re cold I'll be your cocoon I promise you’ll start to feel better soon Darling You deserve everything One day you’ll realize

They've been circling They've been circling Since the day they were born It's disturbing How they're circling Fifty feet from the pond Pretty often Pretty often I don't want to be told It's a problem It's a problem It's a problem I know And I won't keep what I can't catch in my bare hands without a net It's hard enough to walk on grass so conscious of the consequences They've been jerking They've been jerking In a pail by the dock I know that oxygen might Make them blossom and die But I'm not going to talk Feed them details Feed them emails They'll eventually grow It's not working It's not working Not as far as I know And killing things is not so hard it's hurting that's the hardest part And when the wizard gets to me I'm asking for a smaller heart And I've got you And I got you Now I'll ruin it all Feeling helpless Acting selfish Being human and all And they're jumping And they're jumping But they'll never get out Just keep touring Keep ignoring Be a good little trout And the butcher stops and winds his watch and lays their lives down on the block He raises up his hatchet and the big hand strikes a compromise Wait, we'll trade you Wait Please just one more day And then we'll go with no complaining No complaining No complaining No complaining Stop complaining And they're killing And they're cutting And I think that I know And they're gutting And they're gutting And I think that I know And it's beating it's still beating And I think that I know And it's beating Look, it's still beating God, I don't want to know And killing things is not so hard It's hurting that's the hardest part And when the wizard gets to me I'm asking for a smaller heart And if he tells me "no" I'll hold my breath until I hit the floor Eventually I'm know I'm doomed To get what I am asking for Now my heart is exactly the size Of a six-sided die cut in half Made of ruby red stained glass Can I knock you unconscious as long as I promise I'll love you and I'll make you laugh? And my heart is exactly the size Of a six-sided die cut in half Made of ruby red stained glass Can I knock you unconscious as long as I promise I'll love you and I'll make you laugh? Said I'll love you and I'll make you laugh. I'll love you and I'll make you laugh...

We conversed through the night about the new selves that we discovered But there is a pit feeling inside that I’m losing you like all the others Picture me unchanged and I would’ve jumped that bridge in a heartbeat-eat-eat-eat I know you care but you’re so far away You are so far away You are so far away And this hurts more than ever The words you have strung together Have made my 12 ounce heart even heavier heavier heavier heavier heavier Pour your heart out We’ll get lost There is a cure that way When you go I could find you And you’ll know You will know That I love you I love you too I said I’d be there sooner than you know But I didn’t take into account that I’d be so poor Now I’ve got no way to go Now I’ve got no way to go No way to go And this hurts more than ever The distance between one another Has made my 12 ounce heart even heavier heavier heavier heavier heavier Pour your heart out We’ll get lost There is a cure that way When you go I could find you And you’ll know You will know That I love you I love you too Pour your heart out We’ll get lost There is a cure that way When you go I could find you And you’ll know You will know That I love you I love you too Pour your heart out We’ll get lost There is a cure that way When you go I could find you And you’ll know You will know That I love you I love you too Come on, Come on Closer, Closer Come on, Come on Closer, Closer Come on, Come on Closer, Closer Come on, Come on Closer, Closer Come on, Come on Closer, Closer Come on, Come on Closer, Closer Come on, Come on Closer, Closer Come on, Come on Closer, Closer Come on, Come on Closer, Closer
