Lyrics

Geek Love

Written By: Amy Bleu

What's the story Scarecrow?
Are you still a little boy?
Does your heart feel like a toy?
Do you wanna throw it back to the dogs in the February snow?
Tell me which way to go
I can't find my way home
'Cause my blood is too cold

So does your heart still pump gold?
Are you getting too old
For the circus, is it worth it
To warm my blood again?
I'll let you hold the reins this time around

I followed my chicken
To the dubious wizard
I couldn't see the blizzard I was headed for
You knew what was in store
So what do I need wizards for?
I only know for sure
I can't do this to you
Anymore

So does your heart still pump gold?
I'm getting too old for the circus
It's not worth it
To peel back my skin
And let the freaks rush in
So if you love me just the same
Let me hold your heart again
And warm my blood again
I'll let you hold the reins this time around.

Tryst

Written By: Amy Bleu

I can feel it coming, here it goes
At night I go where no one knows
You have got me wrapped up in a bed sheet
In every room where we meet
Your heart is a goldfish
Our love is an old wish
And I would raise my fist, I would raise my fist, I would raise my fist to defend this
Tryst

That's why the smell of hotel rooms
Reminds me of you
And all the things you do
No one else can see the spark
Hidden safely in the dark
There's always some place I miss
On all the skin that I kiss
And I would raise my fist, I would raise my fist, I would raise my fist to defend this
Tryst

Your heart is a goldfish
Our love is an old wish
And I was so lost, I was so lost, I was so lost without you
Once was lost, now I'm found
Once was lost, now I'm found.
