A Heart to Plant

passing through your vein

a cell is on his way to your heart

so I can plant my love

a love that breeds and courses through your brain

like a riptide forms near shore

oh torn we are to the core 

 

poking through your maze

a little out of phase from my sleep

through many suns and moons

wake me now, take me to your room

where the lemons lime with a squeeze or two

and i can spend some time alone with you

 

 

Sleeping Love

the love inside my heart 

never goes to sleep

i try to play it down 

for fear you’ll run from me

 

my love won’t help to take me 

but i'm alright 

i’m patiently waiting for the time

 

oh yeah a sleeping love 

is more than i can take

don’t wanna jump the gun

i gotta keep it straight 

 

my love won’t help to take me 

but i'm alright

i’m patiently waiting for the time

 

my love won’t help to take me 

but i'm alright 

i’m patiently waiting for the time

 

 

Honeydew

i’ll come around for you

chasing dew across your stars like the sun

there’s nothing we won’t do 

the spirit burns with desire for the one

 

the spirit burns with desire for the one

the spirt soars from the honeydew of love

 

fill me up again 

with a warmth from the honeydew of love

flowing through my vein 

the spirit soars from the honeydew of love

 

the spirit burns with desire for the one

the spirt soars from the honeydew of love

 

fill me up again with a warmth from the honeydew of love

the spirit burns with desire for the one

the spirt soars from the honeydew of love

 

 

Windrider

instead of facing the problems in our midst

we can ride the wind back to the stars and say we did

 

oh those country days and city nights

i played my hand like a child who just wants a fight

if you're the sun then why won't you shine?

all in all i took you for one in my blind sight

 

instead of facing the problems in our midst

we can ride the wind back to the stars and say we did

instead of turning our eyes on fears within

we can ride the wind back to the stars and say we did

 

come along with me and we’ll take our time

coasting through our phase in this world on my wind ride

never change unable to say

everything we brought on ourselves was in our way

 

instead of facing the problems in our midst

we can ride the wind back to the stars and say we did

instead of turning our eyes on fears within

we can ride the wind back to the stars and say we did

 

cause if i turn around to face my shame

i don’t know if i’d win your love or stand to blame

 

 

Taken for Granted

give yourself to me tonight

hope one day i’ll be the right

one for you 

i feel it come to end

nothing that i can say

to change your mind tonight

 

so please 

before i’m left alone

i just wanna hold you close 

to say goodbye tonight

 

you said that we would love forever more

but now you wanna go even the score

i fall away again

why you gotta be the one to say

you can’t love with a fear inside your head

but pray that we can still be friends

 

so please 

before i’m left alone

i just wanna hold you close 

to say goodbye 

 

and please 

know i don’t wanna go

but i might as well be the one 

to say goodbye tonight

 

 

A(nother) Failed Attempt at Closure

send my love away again cause

it’s time to fight for youth

take me home cause

i won’t wake again for you

 

oh you love me like someone else for a year or two

and then realized it’s you

i’m asking baby if

 

love will fall away 

or love will find a way?

love will fall away

or love will find a way?

 

tell me ... 

do you love the way you used to?

tell me ...

do you come the way you used to?

it’s ok ... 

cause i don’t need your loveliness now that i’m alone

i let you go now i’m awake

 

i let you go now i’m awake

i let you go now i’m awake

A(nother) failed attempt at closure

video by Megan St. Clair, music by Drip Lines

The video, originally silent, was created by Megan St. Clair as part of her BFA thesis at the University of Colorado Boulder in May 2014. The description read: if an act of undressing a new lover creates a beginning, does the act of dressing an obsolete lover create closure?

The piece inspired Drip Lines to compose a work of the same title which ultimately led to the concept and creation of his debut EP "Evolution of a Love". As an artistic experiment, the two pieces were later combined.
