Take Rest 04:08
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

Little Thief 03:46
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

Coco 03:03
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

At Bay 04:16
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…

(...) 00:36
(...) (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

Lies in Blue 04:39
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
7.
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
