+ Don't Burn Yourself Out

You're so quick to slip into the silence
Like you'd rather get lost in a screen,
but could you make your mind up just to be with me?
You tune out everybody around you,
search for answers, and scroll through your feed
like you don't know when to stop and make time for me.

I don't want to have to storm out and slam doors just to get you to talk to me

Lately, everything feels so overwhelming,
and maybe we need to take some time for ourselves
I don't want you to hate me, or blame me
I'm afraid you're gonna burn yourself out
And it's a long way back if you let yourself get down

You can count all the minutes and hours,
all the moments you miss in a day,
but if you can't let it go, you just lie awake.
So, look up, disconnect for a while.
Pick an end of the candle to keep
before the blue lights fade out, and you're fast asleep.

I don't want to have to storm out and slam doors just to get you to talk to me

Lately, everything feels so overwhelming,
and maybe we need to take some time for ourselves
I don't want you to hate me, or blame me
I'm afraid you're gonna burn yourself out
And it's a long way back if you let yourself get down

Don't burn yourself out.
Don't burn yourself out.
Don't burn yourself out.
Don't burn yourself out.
Don't you burn yourself out.

'Cause it's a long way back
Yes it's a long way back
Yes it's a long way back
if you let yourself get down.

+ Atlas

You and I, dear, were never too different,
Always wandering, curious souls.
And the love between us so persistent,
it would follow wherever we'd go.
From the docks on the Boston Harbor,
a tall ship we would commandeer,
and set out there onto the water,
no direction, no compass, no fear.

You are the wind in my sails.
You are the star to my north.
You make my world spin on its axis,
and you carry my weight.
Baby, you are my Atlas.

So with our backs to the shoreline,
the current carried us off to the sea.
Oh, the decks are all covered with starshine,
And there's no place that I'd rather be.
Oh, I've never successfully captained
any vessel, they all ran aground,
and I've no idea where we are going,
but I'm thrilled with the journey we've found.

You are the wind in my sails.
You are the star to my north.
You make my world spin on its axis,
and you carry my weight.
Baby, you are my Atlas.

(Whoa, woah, oh) Oh, the storm clouds may gather and thrust us below,
(Whoa, woah, oh) And the tests will get harder the farther we go.
(Whoa, whoa, oh) But the heart still grows fonder, no matter which way the wind blows,
So I'll never let go.

You are the wind in my sails.
You are the star to my north.
You make my world spin on its axis,
and you carry my weight.
Baby, you are my Atlas.


You are the wind in my sails.
You are the star to my north.
You make my world spin on its axis,
and you carry my weight.
Baby, you are my Atlas.

+ Slow Burn

Spare me your tired excuses.
You should just tell me the truth.
I know I've blown all your fuses,
but, baby, lies don't look good on you.

'Cause if you don't want to take time anymore
And if you don't have the desire,
If you won't work to make love work for us,
then baby help me put out this fire

Don't let us slow burn, slow burn.
Don't leave us to dying embers, no.
Don't let us slow burn, slow burn.
'Cause if we let it go now, maybe we'll remember the times we were better.

Can't you accept that it's over?
There's no point fanning the flames.
Our conversations go nowhere,
So it's time we both go our separate ways.

'Cause if you don't want to take time anymore
And if you don't have the desire,
If you won't work to make love work for us,
baby, help me put out this fire.

Don't let us slow burn, slow burn.
Don't leave us to dying embers, no.
Don't let us slow burn, slow burn.
'Cause if we let it go now, maybe we'll remember the times we were better.

Maybe it's not for good.
Maybe we need some time and space.
It's for both of our sakes.
And so it's over now,
and I just have to walk away, dear,
even though my heart breaks.

And if you don't want to take time anymore
And if you don't have the desire,
If you won't work to make love work for us,
then baby help me put out this fire.

Oh, don't let us slow burn, slow burn.
Don't leave us to dying embers, no.
Don't let us slow burn, slow burn.
'Cause if we let it go now, maybe we'll remember the times we were better.
