Track Name: Little Purple Flower
I think it started when I was on my tippy toes: a little silence trapped behind a heavy door. And I don't know if I can keep on standing tall. I'm a mini-ballerina but it tightens around my jaw. "What did I ask you for?" "A little silence trapped behind a heavy door.

Now the silence ain't quiet any more. And it makes a sound; it sounds like a slamming door. It's hard to breath, he's a purple little flower from Tattooine.
Track Name: A Year Ago
Your stories paint that time we had in leaves of gold
And frankincense and Merle
I was your girl
A year ago
A year ago

You probably felt so cool when your fingers stretched out on my inner thigh
While I would try to drive
We’d almost die
A year ago, a year ago

The tracklist to your cd
Mysterious yet telling

Since I’ve been loving you, I just don’t know
What to do with myself, jump into the fire
Too much love will kill you, sing me Spanish techno
Do you realize someone great stay don’t go

That was a year ago
A year ago

Now it’s probably kicking around under my passenger seat
Unreadably scratched by his feet
what did you mean?
A year ago

You know you’re right I am trying to break your heart
Tomorrow is a long time to be alone with you
Girl you have no faith in medicine
Don’t go to strangers go to sleep do you want to take it in
do you want to take it in

I’ve noticed you staring with the back of your head
Was it something I said
A year ago
Have all your lies
Become your memories
About a year ago

True love waits until the real thing comes along
God only knows what you know kill your idols
Dress sexy at my funeral
Dream a little dream of me I will, about a girl
