lyrics

I saw the Summer burn through your eyes.
I'll pack a case of beer for the ride.
But Summer will come with a catch like it does every year.
Pressed in the pages are petals like lazuli tears.

How do you call a bird who sings only for the stars?
Come in and paint this on my heart.
Bound to your breath.
Shape of your voice carried constant and clear.
Just stay here.

Fleeing like failures.
Blue stained glass.
Like smoke on your jacket.
Warm smell of grass.
Stand like the old guards who watch over young hearts like ours.
A memory safe like the sand on the floor of your car.

How do you call a bird who sings only for the stars?
Come in and paint this on my heart.
Laws of the land.
August it ends as your cab disappears.
Just stay here.

[?] The sunset! The sunset! You guys it's the sunset! The sunset you guys!

How do you call a bird who sings only for the stars?
Come in and paint this on my heart.
Bound to your breath.
Shape of your voice carried constant and clear.
Just stay here.
