Ingwit I listened to this so much Bandcamp told me I had to buy it. I hate when people describe music as "infectious" so I'm not going to call this album infectious dreampop, I'm going to say it's full of dreampop companions.

Track Name: Stay
Awake but always sleeping
You’re not alone now
Can’t get in trouble
I listen to you breathe
I see you dreaming, I count your sheep

You learn my every movement
My voice when I’m angry, my stare when I’m troubled
You never say a word
There’s nothing to say now
So stay now

You don’t know where I go
Track Name: Taken
In a daze you were found
Strange timing, I suppose
I was taken by your eyes
Fascinated by your mind

I don’t dream anymore
There’s nothing but daylight stopping me
As I lie there awake, the hum of the air is soothing
As I watch you sleep
And I hear you breathe

You’ve aged but haven’t grown
You find the door but can’t get out
You rely on what you found
Track Name: Ghost
I don’t know how you made it out the way you did
What did you say to make them think you’re not okay?

You like to lie with your eyes closed
You would leave me behind if you could
You were a ghost in a bad dream
I still remember

You come around when there’s nothing left to think about
I can’t forget how innocent we are
All I want is to take these memories of you and throw them away

Between you and I we were always broken deep inside
What did you say to make her think you’re not okay?

You were a ghost in a bad dream
Track Name: Melody
This is just a simple thing, you’ve heard it said before
I can tell when he blinks twice there’s nothing more
Do you know better, baby?

It tires me out to listen to another word
When you go too far, focus on the space between

This is just a simple thing to make you feel beneath the dust
All the energy put forth is wasting precious time
Do you feel better, baby?
Track Name: Brightest Star
You fall hard, she once told you
You fall hard and they forget you
And it’s on and on her voice it travels faster

Does it sting when she hurts you?
She won’t turn around and love you
But it’s easier to give into the night

It’s like the brightest star is an atom bomb
And our words are floating in the smoke we made
Look deep enough she’ll make you blind
And all you could remember was her face

Stop my love
The earth stood still and we were barely moving
Lost, no need to be discovered
Cause we can’t even get there on our own

It’s like the brightest star is an atom bomb
And our promises are floating into space
Just say the word, and I’ll say goodbye
And all you could remember was her face
Track Name: If It's True
When we go away, we can leave this mess behind
It’s so cold to say, ‘won’t miss this road anymore’
Going nowhere

When I walk out that door, I’ll forget the things I learned
To feel something else
Something happy

If it’s true, there’s no time to turn around
I’ve made mistakes before but now I don’t know better
Track Name: Alive
Let’s get out of here
Will anyone believe you?
It’s just the white lies you’ve heard so many times

Cause we’ve been wasting all these hours barely living
And I know our time’s not infinite
The writing is on the wall
It’s time to go

She stares at the sun now, as a reminder
She stares at the sun now, it keeps her alive

I had a fantasy penned out perfectly
I can’t articulate disappointment
Track Name: Youth
In another time, would you even notice?
I probably would forget you
Amidst my mistakes

You have got a beauty I can’t seem to realize
I looked out for trouble
A reason to stay

We are the young ones
We’ll just watch the stars at midnight
Share secrets underneath the streetlight

You put the car in drive, don’t know where we’re going
It will soon be over, you say
Track Name: Wake Up
One day you’ll grow up
No one will know what happened to you
You’ll ride the train all day
Put that degree to use
Maybe you’ll meet some interesting people
But they will never see your face
What is the point of this?

You’ll learn to wake up, cause the days are coming fast
You can’t waste your time
Writing songs and compiling words
Cause no one will hear them
