Ugly 03:45
You are across the table from me Your face lit up by candlelight And you offer me your open paw, I take your hand it feels right  Then I tell some dumb joke And you smile wide I can’t help but think it’s the one you keep For when you're just being polite And are we getting below the surface? Or are we just moving in the night? Or am I holding out for just a little more than I have a right to? Just show me your ugly heart I’m not afraid of who you are I’m not afraid of your face when you’ve been crying Just show me your tired soul ‘Cause I’m not afraid to know I’m not afraid of who you might be I’m only afraid of what you’re not telling me Now I’ve made the mistake before, Confusing kindness for love But if i could live inside your palm-- Well, would that be enough? Now are we getting below the surface? Or are we just sweating in the night? Or am I holding out for just a little more than I have a right to? Just show me your ugly heart I’m not afraid of who you are I’m not afraid of your face when you’ve been crying Just show me your tired soul I’m not afraid to know I’m not afraid of who you might be I’m only afraid of what you’re not telling me

All the jewels of the sky All fall on me As I saw I’d never be All I wanted to be My name is nothing My heart is dust Never felt so free Never felt so lost Let the last note ring Bring the curtain down Let the silver moon Light the cactus flower I won’t give up But I’ve come undone Take a minute to rest You’ve fought enough When all of your wanting starts to eat you up Aching for a dream becomes a poison love Twist you into something you don’t want to see Saw that what had saved me meant to bury me All the jewels of the sky All fall on me And I can’t put them back Where they’re supposed to be My name is nothing My heart is dust Never felt such relief Never felt so lost Let the Milky way Crawl across the sky White mountain tops, Blue in the night Let the old way go Let the light come in This is not the end you can begin Again

Somebody asked me What are you waiting for? Paused for a moment then I said, "Well, I’m not exactly sure" And maybe that’s a lie Or at least a half truth Been looking for love a long time Or at least some kind of proof That there might be something better Than I’ve ever known But at this point I would settle for A hand that I could hold Someone to talk to Who gets what I mean Someone who could look me in the eyes and say What it is they need What if someone asked you, What would you say? Are you looking for the rest of your life Or you just living for today? Look, I don’t need and answer Not here right now I trust that you’ll tell me If and when you got it figured out But I know we’re getting older Feels hard to take the risk When I show up to a party empty handed I think...What the fuck is this?Everyone is married now And they’re talking about their kids And I wonder if I missed my chance at love And any happiness? Do you think that we missed our chance at love And any happiness?

The sun through the breakers Finally bends after all its travels Casts a dark and emerald light A day trapped inside a night Oh look, now isn’t that my kind The light is slowly fading The night it has been waiting To brush up with the day As they go their separate ways Oh look, there’s magic in their passing Old friend I see you worry You’re wondering how to help You don’t have to do a thing You don’t to say a thing You’re here and that’s everything to me You don’t have to do a thing You don’t to say a thing You’re here and that’s everything to me The light it’s slowly fading The night it has been waiting To brush up with the day As they go their separate ways Oh look, there’s magic in their passing
