Track Name: i hold my own hands now
read a lot of books, never learned enough
got a lot of friends, count them on my toes

tell a little joke, make a little prayer
walk along with me, let me know i'm here

i hold my own hands now
i've held them for some time

waking up alone, you're in the other room,
hear you through the wall, hum a little tune

i hold my own hands now
i've held them for some time

blocks of colour
rays of light
stack together
what feels right

i hold my own hands now
i've held them for some time
Track Name: helmet song
i always wear a helmet cause i never know when i'm gonna fall
it doesn't do much but it's better than nothing at all

and i don't wanna die
i'm not ready to die
i'm not ready to say goodbye

i always wear a helmet cause i never know when i'm gonna slip
your brains on the pavement and your blood on the ground and that's it

i know it's not good to be scared
i'm not trying to make you scared
i just like to be prepared
Track Name: movie life
life is a movie you watch in heaven when you’re dead
“My life is a storybook,” she said

everything means so much! everything means so much!

write me a letter and i’ll write you back next week
i’ll write a song about things when i can’t speak

i once stopped talking cause i didn’t wanna be a liar
take the truth, take the truth, take the truth, seriously

nothing truly bad has ever happened to me
But everyone I love is part of my body

and everything means so much! everything means so much!

and i’m sorry that i didn’t respond when you told me you loved me
it didn’t seem right to put that into words

everything means so much! everything means so much!

and life is a movie we can watch in heaven when we’re dead
Track Name: think of who you always wanted to be
let's believe in space
we don't need to breathe to live
we don't need the air in our lungs

don't believe in lies
you will never feel safe in them
you will always gasp for air

you are not alone
things you've had to learn by doing
things you've had to learn the hard way

take care of yourself
you deserve a place among the stars
take care of your mind
you deserve a place among angels

think of who you never wanted to be
think of who you always wanted to be

it's getting colder outside
i turn the heat up and stay in at night
i'll put my hand out the window

there are different ways to be happy
this could be a way to be happy
Track Name: i've been spending too much time alone
you can read my mind
i can put it down on paper

and i don't see the difference
between a word or a picture or a sound

when i transmit my thoughts to you
only you know if they're going through

and my body is a rock
it is heavy and i carry it around with me
and i don't understand
how to move it to make you understand

that i can't do this on my own
i've been spending too much time alone
