Track Name: Stunted
She used to sneak me sips of her coffee when mom wasn't looking
Stunted until love was looking at her with grumpy eyes
Don't leave me alone, don't leave me alone
It got in his bones

He grew small and looked a hundred years old
He grew small and looked a hundred years old
He grew small and looked a hundred years old
Track Name: Anything Worth Keeping
Keep my love in a jar
Poke some holes in the lid
Make it cozy with a stick and some leaves

Feed it bits of my heart
Syrupy crimson shards
Wash my hands with warm water
Imagine the warmth of another

Knowing how clumsy I am
My wet grip lets it slip
From the shelf where it lives
And I'll be sweeping up the pieces

That hasn't happened yet
Small things grow significant
Remember that it's delicate
Anything worth keeping is

Feed it bits of my heart
Syrupy crimson shards
Wash my hands with warm water
Imagine the warmth of no other

Knowing how clumsy I am
My wet grip lets it slip
From the shelf
Lands in my palm
Lean the broom
Against the wall

Remember that it's delicate
Anything worth keeping is
Remember that it's delicate
Anything worth keeping is

Keep my love in my palm
Watch it run along
Till it reaches the edge
Then I pull it back again

Knowing how clumsy I am
My wet grip lets it slip
From the shelf where it lives
And I'll be sweeping up the pieces

Remember that it's delicate
Anything worth keeping is
Remember that it's delicate
Anything worth keeping is
Track Name: Faded Mask
So quit doing this and start doing that
They only wanted what is best
Look bleary-eyed into the distance
A ripped green dress from rolling in the grass
And all those lonely dreams
Odd and even, a goodbye kiss in a handkerchief
Worn over the face, it veils fears we throw far away

The faded mask
It is gossamer thin

The faded mask
It is gossamer thin

The faded mask
It is gossamer thin

The faded mask
It is gossamer thin

So I haven't done that and I've been keeping up this
Thank you for asking
The ripped green dress has been mended with
Red thread that's dripping down your chest
And all those lonely dreams turn to ones
Where my friends help me
In a pinch, baby, can you help me?

The faded mask
It is gossamer thin

The faded mask
It is gossamer thin

The faded mask
It is gossamer thin

The faded mask
It is gossamer thin
Track Name: Root Cellar
With the scent of dill
Dripping off of each bill
My wealth remains intact
Cuz I'm pickling my money to make it last
And I'm chewing olives right off the branch
And I don't like the taste but I can make peace with that

The apple rots near the tree
I'm wasting produce the devil picked for me

The apple rots near the tree
I'm wasting produce the devil picked for me

I'm traveling four circles
Down to my root cellar
As I shovel diamonds in my mouth
When I stop smelling sulfur
I'll find a place to spit 'em out
They got a pretty long shelf life
But I'll lick the salt brick to be sure
And I don't like the taste
But hey I'm a long term investor

The apple rots near the tree
I'm wasting produce the devil picked for me

The apple rots near the tree
I'm wasting produce the devil picked for me

The apple rots near the tree
I'm wasting produce the devil picked for me

The apple rots near the tree
I'm wasting produce the devil picked for me
