Track Name: A Rainbow In His Hometown
A Rainbow in His Hometown
© 2013 Ambush Hymnal (SESAC)

And they told him the rain was all he’d ever know
But he knew they were lyin and they wouldn’t say so
So he ran to the sea, and stole the tears of the sun
And they called him the Devil and they went for their guns

And he wanted to leave, but they held him inside
Till he went off and found a place he hide
But they tore through the wall and they shot the boy down
And they painted a rainbow for him in his hometown

And the one that he loved, she was married away
On a dark windy morning to a man made of clay
And she let him inside as she spit at the dark
Till it bled into light and poured into her heart

Con sus ojos azul and her hair ocean black
She cried for her fool, he would never come back
So she ran to the sea, with her shadow untied
She held up her arms and fell into the sky

O no I got trouble in mind
I need to dream it away
So I sleep all the time

O no your dreams ain’t no crime
So just stay there with yours
And I’ll stay here with mine

O no to dream ain’t no crime
So just stay there with yours
And I’ll stay here.
Track Name: I'll Love You If You Let Me
I have my heart
It's still mine if I throw it away
or pull it apart
it'll beat at the end of the day

it colors my ears
with a sound that i can't even name
but this head i've got
tells me stories that i can't contain

like the song of the birds as they hum through the trees
i won't give it a word
it'll do what it please

and these hands of mine
won't touch nothing that i cannot see
so i will not bind what you are to the inside of me

these things i say
may be awhile before you hear them again
so please find a way
to keep them with you until then

i won't burn myself down
i won't dig my own grave
i won't look to be found
i won't look to be saved

But I'll love you if you let me
it's the least i could do
the sun above won't forget me

like the song of the birds as they hum through the trees
i won't give it a word it'll do what it please

No good time
When the one you love is leavin
Who in their right mind
Has a reason to believe
That they’ll do fine
He got everything he needs and all the empty spaces beckon and call

10 to 9
he’ll be running late again this morning
rain or shine
he ain’t making no apologies
it ain’t a crime
to drink another night away
when all the angry ghosts they cling to the walls

he’d forgotten
he’ll be dreaming for a thousand years
of how she taught him
how to shower the eternal in his tears

in the shadow of his teacher he cried tears

he remembers
when he saw her for the first time
with her face like embers
burning out into the morning air
there’s nothing left now
but the smell of her perfume
on someone’s unmade bed, and a key on the floor

she burned heaven
to try to show him how to reach her
but then no one set him up
to lay him any lower than right here

in the shadow of his teacher he cried tears
