LYRICS

Atlantis

The early morning sea is purple in the light of the moon
Our moving hands disrupt the surface of the still lagoon
Shadows dance across her face
She is cloaked in outer space, consumed
And all the mysteries of earth and sky will be ours soon

I can see Atlantis in her eyes
I can see Atlantis in her eyes

In a rush of red and gold we dive into the rising sun
Clouds of salt and silver envelop us and fill our lungs
What is real, and what is myth?
She paints watercolors with her tongue
We're a desert island invisible to everyone

I can see Atlantis in her eyes
I can see Atlantis in her eyes

Standing O

The lights start to glow as we wait for the show
All abuzz for the star to appear
I'm dressed in black, sitting way in the back
It don't matter, you'll know that I'm here
You don't get nervous before shows anymore
You're too good for that now, you've assured me before
But an ex should give you something to be nervous for
People pay to watch you lie but I will know the truth

I could tell stories of the things we did,
How you hit it less often than in Battleship
'Cause you suck down whiskey on an IV drip
Ooh, how much your fans don't know
You're smaller than you seem onstage in real life
In every little way that that descriptor applies
And don't forget that I know what your face looks like
During a real standing O

The curtain ascends, and you're paid to pretend
The crowd eats up each word you say
I settle in, smile at how long it's been
Since I let you fuck me that way
To everyone here, you're alluring and strange
But isn't it funny how all the could change?
If I dispel the myths that surround your name
I hope it bothers you to know that I control the truth

I could tell stories of the things we did,
How you hit it less often than in Battleship
'Cause you suck down whiskey on an IV drip
Ooh, how much your fans don't know
You're smaller than you seem onstage in real life
In every little way that that descriptor applies
And don't forget that I know what your face looks like
During a real standing O

Bravado and charm only get you so far
When the doors to the theatre close
Won't get me in bed, but I'll be in your head
For the rest of your standing Os

Puerto Rican Rain

In the beginning we'd talk through the evening and wake up together
Now every night out just ends when it's light out and TV sounds better
My darling, cariño
Let's get back to the root of what we know
Passion, adventure
Como nunca has visto 

Let's get lost in the Puerto Rican rain
Let your eyes find a world they can't explain
Let your blood flow like fire through your veins
And when we're done, we won’t be the same

You are a vision in cotton and linen in front of the sunset
Though we've been drifting, the darkness is lifting, I know we're not done yet
So kiss me, un besito 
Find a home with me everywhere we go
‘Cause nothing’s an adventure
Si no estoy contigo

Let's get lost in the Puerto Rican rain
Let your eyes find a world they can't explain
Let your blood flow like fire through your veins
And when we're done, we won’t be the same
Let’s get lost in the shadows of the streets
Find the place where the sea and city meet
Let’s unwind in our Caribbean sheets
And when we’re done, we will be complete

What We Do

The roads are empty as I drive home
My body burning from your touch
I keep a careful watch on my phone
Always afraid I’ve said too much

I don’t stay, and you don’t ask me to
That’s just what we do

You think you’re barely shy of famous
Always a joint between your lips
You wear this mask of being shameless
I want to be there when it slips

I don’t stay, and you don’t ask me to
That’s just what we do
I could stay, but you don’t ask me to
That’s just what we do

There’s something hypnotic about you
Something curated but real
But my head and heart can hardly doubt you
When from the start I knew the deal

That I don’t stay, and you don’t ask me to
That’s just what we do
That’s just what we do
 

Chaos

He walks through the night, like he owns the street around him
King of all in sight, worshipped by the ones who crowned him
In our velvet lives, we live for tuxedo evenings
Painted lips and eyes, words that don't have real meanings
When it's late, we will make our escape
Shadows under streetlights flicker
World around us smells of liquor
But I get drunk on summer air, his fingers linger in my hair
Calm no matter how you play us, perfect harmony in chaos
He's a broken man, but I adore the pieces of him
'Cause I understand, it takes a lot of guts to love him
Through his days, I'm the one thing that stays
Shadows under streetlights flicker
Ground beneath us smells of liquor
But I get drunk on city air, the way he drowns me in his stare
Everybody says we're star-crossed, but they're just the voice of chaos
He bites my lip and makes me promise
That I'll always keep him honest
If we lose, we'll never stay lost
We're just stronger when there's chaos
