lyrics

take my breath keep it sealed inside a mason jar
toss in a bag over your shoulder back of your car
so i know that i'll be with you when you're far
take my breath keep it sealed inside a mason jar

take this pen let the inkwell be your guide
deep in your pocket with a notebook at your side
so your wildest dreams don't linger on inside
take this pen let the inkwell be your guide

take this match for the darkness in the night
when confidence crumbles and you're paralyzed in fright
so the flickering embers lead you to the light
take this match for the darkness in the night

a carousel of wonder
will whisk you down an unfamiliar road
despite the distant thunder
a watercolor spirit will lighten up your load
and every dead end, and every every dead end
and every dead end
is a chance to begin again

take this frame paint a portait with your eyes
dissolving like water as it drizzles from the skies
so i know that i don't have to say goodbye
take this frame paint a portrait with your eyes
