Patchwork 04:18
your words all mangled and broken you don’t really make sense stop motion sentences that hang in the air unvoiced incomplete i piece them together like a crossword puzzle starting at the edges trying to get to the core a patchwork of guesswork to make it complete a patchwork of guesswork to fill in the blanks a patchwork of guesswork fraying at the seams a patchwork of guesswork let’s face it a bloody mess a bit of a sudden twist, oh such suspicious suspense pauses announcing a pause too good to be true you have got to be kidding left here in limbo till hell freezes over all i asked of you was not to string me along a patchwork of guesswork to make it complete a patchwork of guesswork a stab in the dark a patchwork of guesswork snarling at the snarl a patchwork of guesswork unpause or cut me loose is this too much to ask can’t be too much to ask is this too much to ask shouldn’t be too much to ask

In Time 05:04
in time i thought i’d find the words i need to tell you in time i thought i’d find the spunk to spill my guts to you now days have come and gone weeks and months have passed and i to whom words come so easily otherwise have kept quiet have kept quiet in time i thought you’d find out why all this attention in time i thought you’d find yourself wondering at last now days have come and gone weeks and months have passed and you to whom words come so easily otherwise have kept quiet have kept quiet (open the door) (pick up the phone) is there still time? is there still time? is there still time? is there still time? now days have come and gone weeks and months have passed and we to whom words come so easily otherwise have kept quiet have kept quiet can’t keep quiet can’t keep quiet anymore

Too Soon 03:40
life in the balance out of our hands out of control life by a thread claw, cling, clamber, clutch don’t let go (too close a call) (too far away) not now not yet too sudden too soon unheard of still life connected to tubes where never was standstill frozen in time we hold our breaths read the morse code (too close a call) (too far away) not now not yet too sudden too soon please wake up open your eyes please come back don’t give up (too close a call) (too far away) not now not yet too sudden too soon

Afterglow 03:54
i put it in a drawer and leave it there for a little while just to take it out later and marvel at it by then it’s gonna shine from within an afterglow to warm my hands and heart with leave me with the afterglow it will be more beautiful than the blazing flame it was a million moments ago when it finally fades you’ll be on your way here to shine for me and warm my hands and heart ...till then leave me with the afterglow it will be more beautiful than the blazing flame it was that burnt us out almost gone but almost here almost gone but almost there you're almost here you're all
