Track Name: Light the Catch
from the moment i met you
i couldn’t get my head clear
from where is the well you knew

it’s your comment I am drawn to
I want what’s worth your fear
only a chain I chew

well then so long my scheming
go crawl on the earth
the only song i am keeping knows what it's worth
i just gotta do the work

you were the only one to ask
if the sigh arrives too fast
then perhaps it is not your task

i was so obssesed, my revealing
was only overcast
then you pulled my painting from the trash

you said so long my meaning
back to as you were
it aint your assignment to measure your worth
you just gotta do the work
Track Name: Catch the Light
darling wait
all i want
is for people to know you
someone ought to show you
I'm in no place

you're entertained
by why I try
how reduced am I
this business of being
leaves me behind

this will not do
who knows the knot
my fingers have long forgot
free me from the pebble
my shoe has caught

autumn days
start now
for somewhere summer fades
so fear no shadow
or feel no shade

a moment i
could’ve kept all to myself
I abandoned on the lowest shelf
why is it everyday why
must my heart rebel
how does it lie so well?

you ok?
no not at all
you are not done for
aim for my eyes
quit looking at the floor

oxygen
find the flesh
under the apple's skin
measure the trouble we all are in

to swallow all the
emptiness that I possess
another melody
I know,
it ain’t the best
I know that now
if I fish with my own flesh
nothing will be left

if the muddiest of water can catch the most light
if the muddiest of water can catch the most light
if the muddiest of water can catch the most light
if the muddiest of water can catch the most light
if the muddiest of water can catch the most light
if the muddiest of water can catch the most light
if the muddiest of water can catch the most light
if the muddiest of water can catch the most light
if the muddiest of water can catch the most light
if the muddiest of water can catch the most light
if the muddiest of water can catch the most light
if the muddiest of water can catch the most light
if the muddiest of water can catch the most light
if the muddiest of water can catch the most light
if the muddiest of water can catch the most light
if the muddiest of water can catch the most light darling wait
if the muddiest of water can catch the most light all i want is
if the muddiest of water can catch the most light for people to know you
if the muddiest of water can catch the most light someone oughta show
if the muddiest of water can catch the most light you
if the muddiest of water can catch the most light before it's too late
if the muddiest of water can catch the most light
if the muddiest of water can catch the most light you're entertained
if the muddiest of water can catch the most light by why i try
if the muddiest of water can catch the most light how reduced am i
if the muddiest of water can catch the most light this business of being
if the muddiest of water can catch the most light leaves me behind
if the muddiest of water can catch the most light
if the muddiest of water can catch the most light
if the muddiest of water can catch the most light
