invisible ink

music & lyrics by a. trapnell

You promised me that you would tattoo my name into the stars, that you would tell the world that this is ours, that every tongue and every lip would profess our love to everyone. You swore to me, that you would sketch your vow across the sky, that you would etch the words into the night, so every tongue and every lip could profess our love to everyone. Just anybody’s love won’t do. Not anybody it’s gotta be you. But I can’t live with your invisible ink it’s killing me. What to do with your invisible ink it’s drowning me. What am I supposed to do when everything you said it won’t mean a thing. Just you and your invisible ink will be the end of me. You made it seem like you were gonna send a note to sea, so any sailor and every dreamer could see, and every tongue and every lip would profess our love to everyone. Just anybody’s love won’t do. Not anybody it’s gotta be you. But I can’t live with your invisible ink it’s killing me. What to do with your invisible ink it’s drowning me. What am I supposed to do when everything you said it won’t mean a thing. Just you and your invisible ink will be the end of me. I’d like to say farewell now. I’d like to say farewell now. Coz I can’t live with your invisible ink it’s killing me. What to do with your invisible ink it’s drowning me. What am I supposed to do when everything you said it won’t mean a thing. Just you and your invisible ink will be the end of me.

Completely

music by A. Trapnell & P. Turcio

lyrics by a. trapnell

There’s so much space between these moments. I stretch my hand and I caress you. I wish that I could draw you in and keep you warm. And find a safe place we could stay wait out the storm. Keep your hands on me just so I can breathe. You cast a spell and I go weak. We lay awake and watched the star-strewn summer skies. And right there and then we discovered you and I. Follow me make this a home. And swear your love completely. Take me on and lay me down. I swear I’m yours completely. I taste your lips and I feel butterflies. You know me well you’ve kissed away my solitude. We take this slow coz there is no need to rush. Coz we have made a vow that will stand the test of time.  Follow me make this a home. And swear your love completely. Take me on and lay me down. I swear I’m yours completely. And every little hope I ever dreamt of you. Was building up an image that I had of you. A perfect little vision of a love I never thought be true. And somehow you came in and swiftly made my view. Fulfilling my desire to have a piece of truth. I know my darling you came through. Follow me make this a home. And swear your love completely. Take me on and lay me down. I swear I’m yours completely…

survive

music & lyrics by A. Trapnell

I know that I’ve been on your mind. I know that you’ve been by my side. I feel the trembling as we start to collide. I know, I know I feel it. I know, I know I want it. No matter who we are we don’t take sides. No matter what we are we still have the time. It’s gonna take a lot to get things right. I know, I know I feel it. I know, I know, I know... No matter where the road my lead I know I will survive. No matter what my heart can take I know I will survive. I know that I’ll survive. I know that I’ll survive. I know that I’ll survive. I know that I’ll survive. I know that you’ve been hard to find. I know the battles are never behind. I feel the trembling as our worlds collide. I know, I know I feel it. I know, I know I want it. No matter who we are we don’t take sides. No matter what we are we still have the time. It’s gonna take a lot to get things right. I know, I know I feel it. I know, I know, I know... I know that I’ll survive. I know that I’ll survive. I know that I’ll survive. I know that I’ll survive. Now that we’ve come this far there’s no where we can go. Stand in the light of day and let your spirit glow. Now that we’ve come this far there’s no where we can go. Stand in the light of day and let your spirit glow. No matter where the road my lead I know I will survive. No matter what my heart can take I know I will survive. I know that I’ll survive. I know that I’ll survive. I know that I’ll survive. I know that I’ll survive.

take it slow

music & lyrics by A. Trapnell

Turn off the lights and I’ll take a breath. I am aching for your hands upon me. Draw the blinds, block out the sun. Keep the world outside it’s only you and me in here. There’s nothing else to distract me from your kiss on me. Lay me down enfold me in your arms my dear. Take it slow. Take your time. I’m a fragile thing so be kind. Take it slow. You’ll be mine. I’m a broken thing it’s on my mind. Take it slow with me it’s my first time. Turn down the bed and I’ll fold right in. I am desperate for your gentle lips. On my skin, encasing me. Leaving all my thoughts and fears at the door outside. A bitter past, shattered dreams and more behind. Awakening, I step unknowingly and follow through. Take it slow. Take your time. I’m a fragile thing so be kind. Take it slow. You’ll be mine. I’m a broken thing it’s on my mind. Take it slow with me it’s my first time. I’m lying here finally. My darkest dread has been relieved. I’m no longer the shadow of a person I used to be. I am free. Still take it slow. Take your time. I’m a fragile thing so be kind. Slow your haste. And I’ll slow mine. I’m a broken thing soon you’ll find. Take it slow with me it’s my first time.


Let us be

music & lyrics by A. Trapnell

The world is changing it needs to if you ask me. I don’t wanna see children dying, people hurting, families torn apart. Oceans rising, forests falling, countries break a part. And my life has been so heavy and I’m not saying yours is easy. I know we each have our own crosses to bear. But if it’s not hurting you let us be. Let us be. Let us be. Coz if it’s not hurting you let us be. The world is bleeding we need a kindness that can save us. I don’t wanna see children dying, people hurting, families torn apart. War uprising, building crumbling, bombs fall from the sky. And my life has been so heavy and I’m not saying yours is easy. I know we each have our own crosses to bear. But if it’s not hurting you let us be. Let us be. Let us be. Coz if it’s not hurting you let us be. Love is love and if I love then God abides in… Love is love and if I love then God abides in… Love is love and if I love then God abides in… Love is love and if I love then God abides in me. God abides in me. God abides in me. Yes God abides in me. And my life has been so heavy and I’m not saying yours is easy. I know we each have our own crosses to bear. But if it’s not hurting you let us be. Let us be. Let us be. Coz if it’s not hurting you let us be. Let us be. Let us be. Coz if it’s not hurting you let us be.
