- "If the best I can do ain't gonna stop whats coming; whats the point of trying to change how the hand plays out?"

- "When you looked at the light did it hurt your eyes, did it hurt you, like it hurt me"

- "Was that a change in topic or a beat in the scene?"

- "Makes me question, was it love or just lust, caked in blood or old rust? I don't know."

- "Maybe its just as much about what comes our way, as it is how we react."

- "...but if we're still here, and we still breath; at least we've still got time, to figure it out, to know what to do, to know how to feel. Know the things that I've been making up inside my head; and to know what's real."

- "I wanna know if I've had any control; I wanna know if it'd comfort me."

- "If my heart just stops keep me alive for a minute; I wanna know if a curtain drops"

- "I thought I heard a plane crashing, but now I think it was your passion snapping."

- "There are ghosts in the walls and they crawl in your head through your ears"

- "We are not clean, we are not pure, we will not rest until we're sure"

- "You've opened my window, but broken the glass"

- "Only something in me understands the voice of your eyes is deeper than all roses."

- "The river's not flooded this time"

- "Oh precious distance, oh precious pain; you've given me a name"

- "Always is valueless, I wish I'd never heard her speak a word"

- "I swear he's made of stone, and I am barely stirring up a breeze"

- "I guess loves a funny thing, the way it fades away without a warning. It doesn't ask to be excused. And when it's gone, oh it's gone; it ain't ever coming back. There is nothing you can do to save it; to make it breath the way it did when you were sliding on the ring. Trust me it's gone for good."

- "You know that hope you're holding to? It looks an awful lot like fear"

- "If I can't find a mistake to blame, we didn't have a choice"

- "But when I leaned across to you, you kissed your fear instead of me"

- "That fear is not some product that I made, it crept unwelcome in my head"

- "At the end of every day I lay awake at night and wait to feel the wires of my brain get cut and quietly rearranged."

- "We escape to our mistakes for they wait patiently for us"

- "If my fear has kept me here, only my fear can set me free"

- "There's so much beauty in a storm"

- "The tide clung like an anchor to her feet"

- "Remember not our faulty pieces, Remember not our rusted parts, It's not the petty imperfections that defines us, but the way we hold our hearts and the way we hold our heads, I hope they write your names beside mine on my gravestone when I'm dead, but when we are dead, let our voices carry on, to find a better song, to find a better song, we'll sing along, we'll sing along, we'll sing along"

- "He could not break apart the waves, to bring her safely back in"

- "Forever wait inside the sea for me my dear, I hear you. You speak in every curling wave and sing in every violent breeze."

- "We will hear the seraphs cry, they will still envy you and I"

- "We can blame it on our hands, the lifted the drink to our mouths so we drank it, or we can blame it on our bodies; they say we like the way we feel when we get touched"

- "The past is a liar, the future a whore"

- "An unshakable absence like most of my insides crawled out through my mouth and went west but that's fine"

- "We cast our hearts in plaster, we imagine our bodies are fashioned from stone, but they chip at the brick and the mortar, we find out that we're only layers of skin hiding bone"

- "And our bones are like chains all rusted in the rain; they're gonna snap when the weight shifts"

- "You've been flirting with distance princess, I tasted its spit in your kiss"

- "It was our mouths that opened up to swallow; and our heads that commanded us drinks"

- "Your silence speaks you're giving in to failure"

- "One cannot stop the wind from blowing; nor refuse the falling rain"

- "Sure as the rain will fall, love just fails without a reason"

- "They say that death is not a problem, it's a promise"

- "Trying to figure out what my head thinks; but my head just ain't what it used to be. Then again, what's the point anyway?"

- "It must be true what people say, that only time can heal the pain"

- "I still remember how the distance tricked us"

- "We'd always find a way to turn and run to our mistakes"

- "I held your name inside my heart, but it got buried in my fear"

- "So dear no matter how we part I hold you sweetly in my head. And if I do not miss a part of you, a part of me is dead. If I can't love you as a lover I will love you as a friends, I will lay a bed before you, keep you safe until the end."

- "I think I saw you in my sleep, darling, I think I saw you in my dreams you were stitching up the seams on every broken promise that your body couldn't keep. I think I saw you in my sleep. I thought I heard the door open, oh no, I thought I heard the door open but I only heard it close".
