Track Name: Take Rest
TAKE REST
(Dear Criminals)

My mouth full of you
I couldn’t speak
Barely breathing
I was neither living or dead
I came to you
I was broken as the leaves
Falling deep
Into your eyes,
where
I couldn’t make it

Would you hold me if you could
Would you know how to fill the void like young lovers do
Would you hurt me
I know you could
Like a last kiss on a cold afternoon

So take rest
I know we’ll never be, never be friends
It’ll hurt less
We’ll never be so close again
You know

So take rest
I know we’ll never be, never be friends
It’ll hurt less
We’ll never be so close again
You know
Track Name: Little Thief
LITTLE THIEF
(Dear Criminals)

Hush little baby don’t you cry
Troubles shouldn’t haunt you as long as I’m alive
And when I shall follow my road to the sky
Know that I will whisper to the stars to shine you bright

Tell me thief, would you tell,
And I will show no pride
If it’s time for you to leave
The moon will cause no tide
And no tide will take you away
Break us away

Hush pretty baby,
Save all your words
Life here will wait for you dear
Rest a little longer

Hush lil’ lion
And try to lay down
Grow pretty darling grow tall,
Slowly open your eyes

Tell me thief, would you tell,
And I will show no pride
If it’s time for you to leave
The moon will cause no tide
And no tide will take you away
Break us away
Track Name: Coco
COCO
(Dear Criminals)

There was fire in my words
Yet they watered your eyes
I dried ‘em with my hand
The one that waved goodbye

We could have called it love
But that ain’t clear
I’ve never felt your lips
You’ve never seen my tears

There was dust in her head
And in her ears,
The sound that pierced her fate
The noise that brought us fear

We rest in the shade
Or did we crawl in the light
We could have called it a war
We could have called it a lie

How can I be even sure I didn’t dream it all
I’m spending more time thinking of you that I have seen your face for
Etcetera Etcetera, and I am trying to move on

The cloud in your heart
Rained upon our nest
Flooded all our laughs
And took away the truth

Along with the storm
That shattered me and you
Came the lonesome times
That healed all that you bruised

How can I be even sure I didn’t dream it all
I’m spending more time thinking of you than I have seen your face for
Etc etc and I’m trying to be strong

How can I be even sure I didn’t dream it all
I’m spending more time thinking of you than I have seen your face for
Etc etc and I’m trying to move on
Track Name: At Bay
AT BAY
(Dear Criminals)

I’d be your daydream if you could be my story
Rivers of words I’ll never tell you

I could have stolen half the moon but too late now
All that I had was not enough for you darling,
All that I am


I could never free fall with you
I will always stand tall
Never would I dream small
I could never, I could never…

I’d be your black star if only skies could open
Just a halo of light against your sorrow

I’d be your last drug if you follow me
All of the bad things we craved for,
All the bad 


I could never free fall with you
I will always stand tall
Never would I dream small
I could never, I could never…

(Dear Criminals)

Wild flowers blooming / in your hands
Are melted melodies
Stirring our hearts with the cold rain
And water kept us warm inside
Covering her little lies
In blue
Track Name: Lies in Blue
LIES IN BLUE
(Dear Criminals)

We could have feigned love
They call it faint love

Can’t stop flirting with the dark seas of chaos
If I slip will you insist to be my Baywatch
While you run in slow motion I feel my lungs crush
So I wait for you to either see me or say goodbye

They call it faint love
I drank up all the ocean still
Faint love

We could’ve feigned love
Play pretend until the end of
Faint love

As you rushed to lay me down on your shoreline
There was no more pounding in my chest only glaze lights
Then you pressed your salty lips against mine
And there we were like young lovers defying time
Black waters were looming in your head
Threatening reveries and aims
Love it kept you armed inside
While the ocean took you away
Track Name: Where We Started
WHERE WE STARTED
(Dear Criminals)

Piercing your soft skin
To lay down where it started
Oh where it started
Where we all began
Dance me to the end
Somewhere in someone else’s skin
Crash and feel again
Just tell me when

Digging through darkness
To start back where we ended
Oh where we ended
1 and 1 made 3
Made us all so weak
You said « don’t let the light fade away »
Out there it’s still burning
Just show me how 


Living deads they melted
So all their ashes could dance
Death will dance
