Track Name: Empty Handed
My heart is an empty vessel
Drifting out to sea
I try my best to be what you want me to be.

You can try and help me.
You could drown me gently.
You could tell me all of the things that I want you to say.

I hear running water
Hear you knocking on the door.
I spent an hour or more
Just lying on the bathroom floor.

You can try and help me.
You could drown me gently.
You could tell me all of the things that I want you to say.

And you
You could walk away
Empty handed
You
You could walk away
Empty handed.

The wave that came has broken
And the void has swallowed me.
A door before stands ajar
I thought I'd run but I'm not free.

You can try and help me.
You could drown me gently.
You could tell me all of the things that I want you to say.

And you
You could walk away
Empty handed
You
You could walk away
Empty handed.
Track Name: A River Loves a Stone
You are, brittle like the wind
But I can, see right through your skin.
Well you've got such beautiful bones
And I love you like a river loves a stone.

I am, fickle as I'm thin
I shut you out, but you still got in.
My worst intentions have all been overthrown
And now I love you like a river loves a stone.

Oh yeah I love you like a river loves a stone.
I love you like a river loves a stone.
Oh yeah I love you like a river loves a stone.
I love you like a river loves a stone.

You are, brittle but you'll bend
And I may, break you but you'll mend.
Well you paint me with such subtle tones
And I love you like a river loves a stone.

We are, brilliant though we're flawed
I wish you'd be a little self-assured.
Your best intentions, have all been overthrown
And now I love you - like a river loves a stone.

Oh yeah I love you like a river loves a stone.
I love you like a river loves a stone.
Oh yeah I love you like a river loves a stone.
I love you like a river loves a stone.

Well I could sit and stare at you for hours
Like a bouquet of funeral flowers
But every leaf is painted black
And every petal is as pale as wax.

Oh yeah I love you like a river loves a stone.
I love you like a river loves a stone.
Oh yeah I love you like a river loves a stone.
Oh yeah I love you like a river loves a stone.
