vixy_gogo This whole album is really lovely and poignant. In the realm of low-fi, this is so good - her voice is wonderful. I like all the tracks but my favorite is Stars, I love the chorus. I think my 2nd fave is Major Scales, or maybe the title track Eurydice ...really they are all great. Favorite track: Stars.

Track Name: A World To See
When it's cold and your bones shake
When you need a little break
When the words in a book no longer catch your eye
And the things you do don't help you to get by

There's a hole in your chest
That you just can't seem to fill
And when you crumble to a mess
And happiness seems only in a little pill
And you keep going and your heart keeps beating
And you keep breathing and walking and sleeping
Even when you lack the energy you need to give
You've still got the will to live

There's beauty in the leaves of a tree
How they move back and forth countlessly
And the clouds float by and by and by
You're not the only one who needs to cry

There's a hole in your chest
That you just can't seem to fill
And when you crumble to a mess
And happiness seems only in a little pill
And you keep going and your heart keeps beating
And you keep breathing and walking and sleeping
Even when you lack the energy you need to give
You've still got the will to live

So everyone has their hardships
And everyone has their pain
But such beautiful words come from your lips
You know you'll be happy again

And you keep going and your heart keeps beating
And you keep breathing and walking and sleeping
Even when you lack the energy you need to give
You've still got the will to live
Track Name: Major Scales
love is an ancient concept, but when you talk about it, it seems good as new
I've had my heart broken before, had my first kiss under stars, oh if only you knew
I'm not scared of what's to come, but now I'm careful outside
because when you've become someone new, it's hard to really know what's inside

but I can believe your big eyes, I can believe your dark skies, I can believe in your tales
and I can give you my long sighs, I can give you my dark skies, I can give you my major scales
I can believe your big hands, I can believe your silly plans, I can believe in your laughs
and I can give you my new jams, I can show you to new lands, I can take you off the graph

these recent days have been getting a little hard, been taking me around new bends
and I've had some days where I wake up and I feel like I can't even face my friends
oh I'm not scared of what's to come, but I'm always careful walking outside
because when you've become someone new, it's hard to really know what's inside


but I can believe your big eyes, I can believe your dark skies, I can believe in your tales
and I can give you my long sighs, I can give you my dark skies, I can give you my major scales
I can believe your big hands, I can believe your silly plans, I can believe in your laughs
and I can give you my new jams, I can show you to new lands, I can take you off the graph


but I can believe your big eyes, I can believe your dark skies, I can believe in your tales
and I can give you my long sighs, I can give you my dark skies, I can give you my major scales
I can believe your big hands, I can believe your silly plans, I can believe in your laughs
and I can give you my new jams, I can show you to new lands, I can take you off the graph
Track Name: Daisies
a million small daisies picked
still won't all stay alive
it doesn't matter till it clicks
no matter how hard you strive

where were you going
running off into a new world
what were you thinking
when you said goodbye
a million small daisies picked
still won't all stay alive

walking off into the sunset
sure sounds poetic at first
but then night falls and you get upset
surrounded by this ugly curse

where were you going
running off into a new world
what were you thinking
when you said goodbye
a million small daisies picked
still won't all stay alive

a wandering mind can only go
as far as your will lets it
but your footsteps started long ago
and you're the only one who gets it

where were you going
running off into a new world
what were you thinking
when you said goodbye
a million small daisies picked
still won't all stay alive
Track Name: Eurydice
poison shifting through your veins
taking you away with all your pain
no messenger to tell me where you've gone
no light to help me in this storm

oh Eurydice
won't you come back to me?
I love you
and without you I can't breathe
oh Eurydice
I need you next to me
I miss you
in my dreams you're all I see

we ran out of time way too fast
trying to find out how to change the past
they keep telling me that you're gone forever
but you know I'll search forever


oh Eurydice
won't you come back to me?
I love you
and without you I can't breathe
oh Eurydice
I need you next to me
I miss you
in my dreams you're all I see

where are you?
it's dark in here
please help me, I'm so scared
please find me because I'm not there


oh Eurydice
won't you come back to me?
I love you
and without you I can't breathe
oh Eurydice
I need you next to me
I miss you
in my dreams you're all I see


oh Eurydice
won't you come back to me?
I love you
and without you I can't breathe
oh Eurydice
I need you next to me
I miss you
in my dreams you're all I see
Track Name: 16
this is how we grow up
this is how we listen
we may seem stuck up
but our eyes glisten

we'll dream of perfect lives
a reality we don't see
and we're not afraid to lie
'cause we're only sixteen

we'll kiss strangers for fun
to mend a broken heart
tell our friend we're not done
until we fall apart

16 years of living loving
16 of bitten nails
16 years of working hard for
overcoming mistakes and fails

our spirit will not broken

watch us run away from you
away from responsibility
watch us do what we want to do
so you'll tell us we're pretty

16 years young, 16 years old
we're the oldest of the old and the boldest of the bold


16 years of living loving
16 of bitten nails
16 years of working hard for
overcoming mistakes and fails

our spirit will not broken
Track Name: Old Tree
oh you old tree
won't you tell me of your past
I'll sit patiently
and you'll watch me grow up fast

some things will change
but some will always stay the same
people come and go
like the rain and like the snow
but the consistency of one old tree

carved into the trunk
is a heart and some initials
while another side has sunk
under the weight of endless tears

some things will change
but some will always stay the same
people come and go
like the rain and like the snow
but the consistency of one old tree

little animals climb on your arm
claiming you as their own
while a child swings up far
laughing as they touch the sky

some things will change
but some will always stay the same
people come and go
like the rain and like the snow
but the consistency of one old tree
Track Name: Stars
be my sun, be my moon
be my collection of stars
I'll go there and back for you
I'll go near or far

be my courage, be my sin
be there to hold my hand
you'll be my happiness within
and I'll be anything I can

because when night falls and darkness comes
and when things get out of hand, I'll take you up
up into the stars

tell me now, are yo excited?
shall I be an open book?
tell me now should we get started?
do you need a closer look?

because when night falls and darkness comes
and when things get out of hand, I'll take you up
up into the stars

be my sun, be my moon
be my sun, be my moon
up into the stars
