Track Name: Handful of Hurricane
black moon lilith/
cheeks stained in kisses/
longing for you/
she's dripping in wishes/
tomorrow's just another day/
she's missing you

Chorus:
she's a handful of hurricane/
a bouquet of heavy rain
x2

we garden a home/
the shutters never close/
the faucet's always running/
she built a shack near her heart/
dreaming on shooting stars/
black shoes lay across the kitchen floor/
she's waiting for you/
damp and divine/
smelling of bloody red wine

Chorus:
she's a handful of hurricane/
a bouquet of heavy rain
x4

we were suppose to grow old/
toothless and in love/
rocking chair and white dove
x2

Chorus:
she's a handful of hurricane/
a bouquet of heavy rain
x4

now we're childish and alone/
stubborn in clouds/
above concrete city streets/
without a home/
without a home
Track Name: Be Brave
dear little fire fly/
can i capture you/
come take a seat in my mason jar/
i wanna rap to you/
tonight i am your raging god/
in the backyard of a borough/
where cricket spirits charm the dark/
im mulling over the myth of man/
in the middle of mind/
human sirens made of longing light/
we toss our grins toward the corners of our eyes/
gathered in a kiss/
a morsel of fire

Chorus:
I want you/
so be brave/
the heart is wild/
let's not behave
x2

burning in shelters made of skin/
your moan is a memorized poem
flowing from the heart/
a river of blue violet flame/
im dribbling love/
im trembling drunk

Chorus:
I want you/
so be brave/
the heart is wild/
let's not behave
x2

welcome to our past lives never realized
x2

Chorus:
I want you/
so be brave/
the heart is wild/
let's not behave
x2

dear little fire fly/
can i capture you/
come take a seat in my mason jar/
i wanna rap to you/
