"Roses" from Blood Red Blooms
I’m jumping over barricades running after you I’m climbing in the motorcade only to look you in the eye and know that you are mine I’m breaking all the rules // So can I touch, touch, touch the seam of your coat? and would you catch, catch, catch the roses that I’m throwing? // It’s not enough to know your name and not say it aloud it’s not enough to watch you pass and stand here with the crowd // the roses that I’m throwing, the roses that I’m throwing The roses that I’m, roses that, he rose and I rose with him, He rose and I rose with him he rose and I rose with him.
"Blossoms" from Blood Red Blooms
Blossoms, blossom, life folds out of death Blossoms, blossom, sweetness in each breath And I am not afraid, I am not afraid and I am ready now, I am ready now // Come and sit on the throne Of my heart // Blossoms, blossom, winters cold reversed Blossoms, blossom, from the barren earth And I am not alone, I am not alone and I’m letting go, I’m letting go // New sides of your face are all I can see New hallelujahs are growing in me Blood red blooms at the foot of your tree Let everything that has breath sing
"Hound of Heaven" from Blood Red Bloom
I could make my bed in the deepest sea, in a desert storm you’d find me, in the streets of New York, with a million people, you're always right behind me, I fled you down the days, I fled you down the nights I fled you down the years // Where could I go, Where could I hide To you even the dark is light around this foggy mountainside got the Hound of Heaven on my heels tonight Got the Hound of Heaven on my heels tonight // To the feet that follow, every hill and hollow Every burning swallow of liquid fear trying to evade you, as your love pursues that constant beat is nothing new // A jealous heart is on my tracks all the time, all the time And I can hear him whispering, you are mine, you are mine
"Against the Bricks" from Blood Red Blooms
Only God can pull apart, the walls around a heart, I could beat my fist up against the bricks, but what good would it do? It wouldn’t change you // so I am leaning my back upon your gates, and here I will wait for, love and grace to befall, answering all, the wanderings of your soul // only love would stick around make its bed upon the ground When the wild dogs howl when their on the prowl I’ll be wide awake, however high the stakes // Rain will fall upon a thirsty ground and we’ll watch the seeds we’ve sown coming up all around, they’ll come up all around.
"Sparrow" from Blood Red Blooms
Oh little sparrow with despair in your wings the deeper the sorrow the sweeter you sing your song la la la these days are only passing shadows like cars driving by a bedroom window // your sweet song like an arrow making my heart bleed, as you cry in the fallow I’m swaying can’t you see, you are more than many sparrows to me // sometimes the city makes you an orphan, so sit on my branches and I’ll be your portion // I heard your sleep deprived sigh, looked deep into your bloodshot eyes, saw your worn and weary heart.
"Rabbit Run" from Blood Red Blooms
Run, rabbit run, rabbit run, rabbit run // I begin to burrow my heart deep under the dirt, like it’s mine to keep I hide away inside the earth // I run like I’ve got something to lose when all along all I’ve had is you, I know it in my head but every now and then I run.. // I begin to wonder how long I can hold my breath Just like Jonah I am caught between two kinds of death // I run like I’ve got a race to win but you’re the beginning and the end, I know it in my heart of hearts and I don’t want to run.
"Cross of Christ" from Blood Red Blooms
Show me my pain in the light of your love, remind me your wounded side is enough, Oh my soul, my soul won’t you bring // Nearer to the cross of Christ, let it be my heart's reprise, oh I'm clinging for dear life, nearer to the cross of Christ // when I feel misunderstood and alone brush my hands over the holes in your own oh to see, your sorrow filled eyes // show me my pain in the light of your love, hide my life deep in the red of your blood, oh my soul forever will sing.
"Walking on Air" from Blood Red Blooms
Day after day, they lock the gate, send me down to earn my wage, break my back, skin turns black, under the weight of earth I cannot last // walking on air, I’m walking on air, there’s confetti falling everywhere walking on air, I’m walking on air, there’s confetti falling everywhere I turn, all I see is light, lighting up the wings of the heavenly hosts, as I lift my eyes // night after night, so full of fight, I relent, rest my mind, under the stars, your heavy heart, under the weight of who you are // and I see your face everything else begins to fade, as I go from glory to glory, only closer to this place.

In the fire and in the flood I watch a town collect it's dust, and everything I've ever loved is all the sudden not enough. // For this broken, young heart, dying for a new start. // I am a creature of habit, you are the master of change. You are one in a million and I am terribly plain. So plant a seed inside of my soul. Give it some water and watch it grow and grow and grow. // In the morning in the night watch my spirit fight its fight, against the flesh and bones on me, I cannot set myself free. // stop the cycle, I can't live this way. show me a new path and I will walk that way. //
"Tell Him I'm Not Ready" from White Flag
Tell him I'm not ready, tell him it's not time even though he's perfect I'm waiting on a sign. Ask him if he's angry, ask him if he'll wait just a little longer until my heart is tame // And I can feel it rising in my bones, I am clinging to my fear and clinging to control // He said "give me one good reason you should stay a minute more, just take your fickle heart and walk right out the door." But he's more than what I want, he's more than what I need.

A soul as warm as yours can melt a heart like mine. //
"White Flag" from White Flag
Giving you this pain means giving you my heart and giving you my heart is a white flag. Every little want, every single dream, hidden in my heart is bursting at the seams.

I love you all of you, completely, this way. // Giving you my heart means giving up my pride and giving you my pride is harder than it seems, the last thing I need is a war inside of me 'cause I know how it ends, with a white flag // at the end of the day when I lay my head down I want you to stay, at the end of the day when I lay my head down I want to hear you say... //

"A Home Around Him" from SHE
She has built a home around his body. She has been working from the start. Lavished with bright color and beauty, the only thing missing is his heart.
