Revolving Doors Street sweeper, what do you see? Do you notice parts of winter hearts Wrapped in rotten leaves Street sweeper, will you marry me? I’ve been looking for a guy Not afraid to get his plans a little dirty Revolving doors, revolving doors Revolving doors, revolving doors Street sweeper, what do you see? What if I was her and she, she was me Then I could walk in high heels I could hide how I feel I could melt away the snow Pave over sticks and bricks and stones Revolving doors, revolving doors It felt pretty warm on the inside But now I’m standing in the snow I have nothing to show Just a heart shaped hole in the frost of your window Street sweeper what do you see? What do you hear? What do you believe? Revolving doors, revolving doors It felt pretty warm on the inside But now I’m standing in the snow I have nothing to show Just a heart shaped hole in the frost of your window Waiting to evolve Waiting to evolve Wait a minute, what if this ship’s real and we are coming back again And where we’re trying to get We’ve already been Oh, let me in Revolving doors, revolving doors Revolving doors, revolving doors

Birds Come Back Ladybird, fly away home Where two birds sit on a stone One flies away, there is one And soon the other is gone Birds come back Birds come back All of the birds will be back Birds come back Birds come back Holding a bird in your hand Heart beating, feathers and wings You want to let go but you can’t Until she sings to you Promising Birds come back Birds come back All of the birds will be back Birds come back Birds come back I came through the fire By turning to stone Wasting my time wanting better Now I’m just trying to get back what's flown Birds come back All of the birds will be back Birds come back Birds come back Most of the birds will be back Birds come back Birds come back

No Time To Waste Who knows what’s good or bad Are you happy or sad Could be the planets or the weather That is making us mad And our bodies feel the rhythm of the tides on the sand So why don’t we just go with what we can’t understand Who knows what seasons bring Is it winter or spring Are you Monday or Friday I thought that we had a thing And our bodies feel the rhythm of the tides on the sand So why don’t we just go with what we can’t understand Don’t push my love away Don’t wait for another day Don’t push my love away Don’t let this good heart go to waste Who knows if this is it Marshmellows or brick Oh, I’ve been blowing bubbles That you pop with a stick But our bodies feel the rhythm of the tides on the sand So why don’t we just go with what we can’t understand Don’t push my love away Don’t wait for another day Don’t push my love away Don’t let this good heart go to waste You say your phone was off You couldn’t hear the calls I used up all the space Speaking words that you’ll erase Don’t push my love away Don’t wait for another day Don’t push my love away Don’t let this good heart go to waste

The Sky Is Green It starts with a seed and the root breaks free Open up your arms, unbend your knees All new leaves The sky is green Unfurling the smallest sprout Poetry before words had mouths Before we waltzed between the trees, there were leaves, leaves, leaves All new leaves The sky is green, the sky is green Lit with leaves, good and good and green When we lost the plan and you smashed your phone There were people right beside us that we got to get to know Then the plane broke down on the runway All we could say was this day we are not supposed to fall We are not supposed to fall We are green new leaves All new leaves The sky is green The sky is green Lit with leaves, good and good and green They said you died of a rare disease But April’s bride, I still see your leaves All new leaves The sky is green, the sky is green Lit with leaves, good and good and green
