CAPTURE the CASTLE You are the reason I've been up all night You make me feel like I'm ready for the rest of my life Come closer, baby, let me feel you burn You're gonna ride in the morning to the edge of the earth Don't tell anyone About the music, Don't tell anyone Where you have gone Yeah - I'll be here at surrender, Love you forever, Mountains together We'll go burning it up And settling down Where time goes unmeasured I want you 'til the end Of centuries of fireflies, Always and ever You're gone onto the sea To capture the castle And bring back your heart to me, To me Bring back your heart to - I'll be here when you lose your light Don't it make you run, run, baby For the rest of your life Forever chasing down what we knew, You get your soul immortal By the weight of your truths But don't tell anyone About the music, Don't tell anyone Where you have gone Yeah - I'll be here at surrender, Love you forever, Mountains together We'll go burning it up And settling down Where time goes unmeasured I want you 'til the end Of centuries of fireflies, Always and ever You're gone onto the sea To capture the castle And bring back your heart to me, To me Bring back your heart to me, To me Bring back your heart to me I feel the weight on me I feel the weight on me I feel the weight on me I feel the weight on - I'll be here at surrender, Love you forever, Mountains together We'll go burning it up And settling down Where time goes unmeasured I want you 'til the end Of centuries of fireflies, Always and ever You're gone onto the sea To capture the castle And bring back your heart to me... (To me, bring back your heart to -) I'll be here at surrender, Love you forever, Mountains together We'll go burning it up And settling down Where time goes unmeasured I want you 'til the end Of centuries of fireflies, Always and ever You're gone onto the sea To capture the castle And bring back your heart to me, To me Bring back your heart to me Capture the castle for me, For me Bring back your heart to me, To me Bring back your heart to me 2022 Ainsley McNeaney/Pet Lion

DEACON STREET On the first night We laid awake in the dark, In the dark Making promises To put an end to this war Mmm And in the moonlight You told me I’d be a star: “It’s what you are” But on Deacon Street We counted footsteps apart I was brave, I was foolish I was bound to the music I was raised by the ghosts of a people ever-losing You were cruel, you were crazy You took every failure out on me, but - We didn’t know how to love Now I feel More than I want to say I never walked away What is real, I just wanna hear you say, “I’d never leave you, baby” You put your hands in mine And told me we could be smarter Mmm But on the mountainside You smashed it all at my heart Whoa - I walked a straight line, I thought it’d make me immortal, What was it all for? On Deacon Street, Where we burnt down every door Yeah – what was it for? ‘Cause I was mad at the music, I was sad at the bruises, But your words hurt me more than any fist of my choosing Turned around when I needed you the most But I concede the truth is, We didn’t know how to love Now I feel More than I want to say I never walked away What is real, Oh yeah I just wanna hear you say, “I’d never leave you, baby” Now I feel, mmm Far more than I want to say I never walked away What is real, Oh yeah I just wanna hear you say, “I’d never leave you, baby” I hate that Deacon Street Means nothing more to me Than stupid broken dreams And feeling like you’re holding me back This much is true: I can’t remember you As loving me as much as I loved you - Oh baby! On the last night We laid awake in the dark (In the dark) On Deacon Street, Where I last felt my heart... Now I feel More than I want to say I never walked away What is real, I just wanna hear you say, “I’d never leave you, baby” - Now I feel Far more than I want to say I never walked away from you, uh-huh What is real, Oh yeah I just wanna hear you say, “I’d never leave you, baby” You know it’s true I can’t remember you As loving me as much as I loved you (I just wanna hear you say, “I’d never leave you, baby”) Oh baby You know it’s true I can’t remember you As loving me as much as I loved you (I just wanna hear you say, “I’d never leave”) Oh baby You know it’s true I can’t remember you As loving me as much as I loved you Oh baby You know it’s true I can’t remember you As loving me as much as I loved you Oh baby You know it’s true I can’t remember you As loving me as much as I loved you Oh baby You know it’s true I can’t remember you, I can’t remember you, I can’t remember you

Firefly 03:50
FIREFLY In my previous life I think I was a firefly But I can’t remember anything I saw Maybe it was all sensation Maybe I had expectations Of lighting your way through it all And I know That you’re lying there awake And I know Any moment I could break ‘Cause you are the one I need You are the one I need All that we ever felt is Radioluminescence So it is underground we’d go There we would stay forever Pressing so tight together Hoping that our bodies start to glow And I know That you’re lying there awake And I know Any moment I could break Any moment I could break ‘Cause you are the one I need You are the one I need You are the one I need You are the one I need Ahh.... Ahh.... Ahh.... Ahh.... Hold back it’s a new sensation By the light of the radiation Hold back it’s a new sensation By the light of the radiation Hold back it’s a new sensation By the light of the radiation Hold back it’s a new sensation By the light - And you are the one I need You are the one I need You are the one I need You are the one I need Hold back it’s a new sensation By the light of the radiation Hold back it’s a new sensation By the light of the radiation Radiation Radiation, oh.... And you are the one I need You are the one I need Mmm.... 2022 Pet Lion/Ainsley McNeaney

Common Woman 04:01
COMMON WOMAN I wanna be your common woman And you can be my common man And we can live together Where our story never ends All we heard was silence When life was about the grand slam Now that I’m older I know that it’s love That speaks in the end Oh hold on I still want you, baby I still need you, baby So, I wanna be your common woman And you can be my common man And we can live together Where our story never ends Now there are voices all around me In the music, in the wind We went so deep in the woods We could not believe we would hear it again Oh hold on I still want you, baby I still need you, baby Oh hold on I believe you, baby There’s so much say I wanna be your common woman And you can be my common man And we can live together Where our story never ends I wanna be your common woman Forever 2022 Ainsley McNeaney/Pet Lion
