I’ll tell of a boy who carries an arrow he flies around with little wings he thinks of himself as some kind of sparrow stalking victims just like me a god of the slaves, a god of the pharos he brought them both down to their knees his aim is quick, his focus is narrow yeah this morning he shot me in the spleen well, hello! I am lost in this world where things glow with the touch of you love and I’m not letting go I’m in love and I’m not letting go I'll tell of a girl who’s purple and yellow she lurks beneath the morning wind she dances around she plays on a cello! yeah she twirls her bow between her strings well, hello! I am lost in this world where things glow with the touch of you love and I’m not letting go I’m in love and I’m not letting go inside of this box I carry my heart I give it to you so you’ll break it apart to pluck out its feathers, rub on a fish to glue back together however you wish when I get it back I know it’ll be the best iteration of me I’ll wrestle a bear, I’ll shovel some snow I’ll save all the whales and I’ll learn how to sow ‘cause I know this world is waiting to see the best iteration of me I’m in love and I’m not letting go I found love and I’m not letting go

hoy dejaste de morir hoy tu ser te pide más regresó el color a tus labios y tu piel abandona el gris que fingía la humildad hoy dejaste de sufrir hoy te late el corazón hoy la vida toma un paso más allá del liderazgo del orgullo y del dolor y hoy eres tú, la misma que arriesgó y no se dejó vencer por el mundo y la ilusión hoy se ve de nuevo un rasgo, una y otra vez de esa luz que se apagó hoy comienzas a vivir se oye solo tu canción marcha el tiempo más despacio y se abren los espacios de la mente en tu honor y hoy estás aquí, la misma que amó y no se pudo perder lo que el día le ofreció hoy se ve de nuevo un rasgo, una y otra vez de esa luz que fuiste tú y hoy creo en ti hoy creo en el amor hoy se ve de nuevo un rasgo una y otra vez

hoy voy a botar, las alas que tu me diste porque ya no soy tu angel guardian me voy a quitar, los cuernos que me pusiste porque estamos en temporada de casar en ese dia que te fuiste tu me diste la única historia que quisiera yo poder borrar Imagínate por un instante que yo no fui ni tu ex ni tu amante que nunca te regale-ese diamante que supuestamente no se podía romper y al ver, que todos somos personas de diferentes madres y zonas pero una sola es la vida al nacer quedate sola si no quieres volver sin ningún prejuicio a tu forma de ser pero tratemos de tratarnos major mi amor si es posible hoy voy a botar, las alas que tu me diste porque ya no soy tu angel guardian me voy a quitar, los cuernos que me pusiste porque estamos en temporada de casar

service station parking lot in a Massachusetts road, you were scared I was torn, 'cause one line says that life is gonna be easy for a while, two lines and we’re not alone, she had your eyes, she had my style, she made you cry, she made me smile, but only for a moment, and then she was no more, Sunday morning sermon has a message for us both, the sunlight glides across the church’s walls, the preacher says that life is not in the flesh but in our minds, oh we are never going to be alone, she had your eyes, she had my style, she made you laugh, she made me smile, but only for a moment, becoming something more, she’s running ‘round, she’s being wild, she's got a laugh that carries for miles, she's going to be a woman that changes the world, she’ll have your eyes, she’ll have my style, she’ll make them cry, she’ll make them smile, but only for a moment, becoming something more,

about

Spend some time with us in the studio, on the stage, with our friends... in the tour van making weird animal noises. "Iterations of Me" is every iteration of us: the silly, the contemplative, the beautiful, the rockin', the harmonious, the improvised, and at least for us, the unexpected. This album is not exactly one we saw coming, but we're sure glad it did.
