Track Name: soft touch
you haven’t seen me seeing you yet but i’ve tried
i’m the thing in the corner of your eye
i’m the soft touch of a cool breeze when you cry

you don’t know how well you know me; be assured
i’m the creak from an unoccupied floor
i’m the soft touch of a cold hand on a ouija board

you’ve seen me in your photos
you say i’m specks of dust
i know you and i know those
things you dare not discuss

you’re perceiving my perseverance in some ways
you can’t bring yourself to say
you can’t admit to yourself in the light of day

you’ve seen me in your photos
you say i’m leaking light
i know what you don’t disclose
and keeps you up at night

you haven’t seen me seeing you yet, but i do
i’m the thing that you feel supporting you
from the shadows of a dark room when you’re blue

you don’t know how well you know me, but i’m here
like i’ve been for immeasurable years
like i will be 'til you’re gone and long after you disappear
Track Name: under you
i’d like to be slightly less than six feet under you
can we see eye to eye or am i only see through?

i do not peek— i’m not a sneak— but lord you wash your hair for hours
i trace letters in the steam that fogs the mirror near your shower

just yesterday i heard you say “lately i swear it feels i'm
never alone, it’s like there’s someone with me all of the time"

i feel your things, your silver rings, sometimes put them out of place
just to see the look of doubt and excitement on your face
is that wrong?

you hook the latch and strike a match, you light a candle and ask
"can we be introduced? i’ve seen your messages on the glass
"i know you
"i know you

"you are the wind against my skin when the curtains are still
"you are that inexplicable feeling of terror and thrill
i know you
i know you"

now in the house, nobody else, just you and me and the dark
and what i think would probably be the increased beat of my heart
Track Name: shivering
open your doors
i try my best to leave your friends all undisturbed
when i come through the wall, they all seem so perturbed
please can you tell them there's no need to be concerned?

turn up the heat
when i get close to you, you're always shivering
you know i'd warm you up if i could touch anything
but when i try to, all the lights start flickering
