Track Name: Cut The Rope
How does it feel
When you break a heart
Does it start to peel
In the weaker parts
Does it fall to dust
Or crumble slow
And does it help you, woh oh
When you cut the rope

So take me in
You perfect soul
My heroin of this hallow grove
And would you take my sin
When you’re on the road
And will you treat me like a kid
When you cut the rope

So are you weak
Or are you hardened by pain
Does it stain your hands
Or can you wash it away
And would you ever think
About the love that we knowed
Every day and every night
Before you cut the rope

So how does it feel
When you’re sleeping alone
Are you weak in the head
Or were you left in the road
Oh and how we walked
Oh and how we’ve grown
Pretty talk to me, woh oh,
As I cut the rope

Oh and how we walked
Oh and where have you gone
Pretty talk to me, as I cut the rope
Track Name: Lamplight
And lover, where’d you lose your patience
I know you had your patience
And I was just a kid

And clueless, you never stop to wonder
If lightning strikes the thunder
Or if it’s just coincidence

Every time your father beat you down
You told him, "Dad it won’t be long,"
And as your tiny body slept that night, I had my lamplight burning strong

And hated
Your bedroom is a dark place, but you've broken all the doorways
And now you're stuck inside

But hopeful
Your memory's still around though, you can see it from your window
As it starts to pass you by

Now I'm in your car, you hold your apples in your arms
You're a friend I used to know, but you still lean against my walls
Tell me beauty I won't bluff, I set my mind to worthless stuff
But I was hoping you'd have the decadence, the appetite of love
But that's alright, yeah that’s alright

Every time your father beat you down
You told him, "Dad it won’t be long,"
And as your tiny body slept that night, I had my lamplight burning strong

And when you came to me, and said, "We gotta leave,"
And so we took your parents' car
And as your tiny body slept that night, I had my lamplight burning strong

And when we got away, but in a couple days
We crashed in Arkansas
And as your tiny body slept that night, I had my lamplight burning strong

And when the cop cars came and took you away
I knew I had to write this song
And as your tiny body slept that night, I had my lamplight burning strong
