Hey lovers, take care of our girl She's done her best, and deserves a rest and Now it's time for A new leaf, a clean slate, a fresh start Hey lovers, take care of our girl A fallen star crashing down to earth A new chance, a surprise rebirth We watch her go with a collective frown Going down Far from our town Hey lovers, take care of our girl She's done her best, and deserves a rest and Now it's time for A new leaf, a clean slate, a fresh start Hey lovers, take care of our girl Oh, We are sad to see her go But in our hearts we all know That one day she will be okay, But till that day this is what we’ll say Hey lovers, take care of our girl She's done her best, and deserves a rest and Now it's time for A new leaf, a clean slate, a fresh start Hey lovers, take care of our girl Hey lovers, take care of our girl Hey lovers, take care of our girl

i've been running round you in diamonds you've got me trippin' over my own shoes and i'm sick and done with these old tired gods i wanna burn it all down and start again with you. they took it all, they took it all! now there's nothin' left for me my Los Angeli are on fire Winnipeg is in the sea but here in your arms i know this much is true i'll always be your Quitter but I won't quit on you. you're my wyatt don't you forget that these days lie heavy on my shoulders but i know one thing that's true i'll never quit on you. i still remember what i became inside the shell love and malice look the same nowhere's so lonesome so imagine my surprise to break free and meet my reflection in your eyes. you snapped me back, you snapped me out you never left my side next god that hecks with you is gettin' crushed between my thighs you're across the pacific but we'll find each other soon there's a better world for us waiting to bloom. you're my wyatt don't you forget that you've been right here by my side through this cold bleak night how could I ever quit on you? i'm your wyatt i won't forget it i'm spent, i'm sore but my feet keep landing sure cuz every step i'm running home to you.

I like you but you don't like me I try to move on eventually Then you like me when I don't like you Tell me what are we to do Won't ever meet eye-to-eye like a pitcher and a catcher I just wish I knew what you were after That microphone whining's been driving me insane We'll never be kissing in that ol' blood rain So we feedback our feelings Going back and forth for eternity So we feedback our feelings Never playing on the same team Even Val Games and Nagomi Mcdaniel Spent 22 days on the Breckenridge panel Every time we're close we seem to lose control In Sun 1 or Sun 2 your heart's a black hole So we feedback our feelings Going back and forth for eternity So we feedback our feelings Never playing on the same team Can we reverb and try again and again? Can we reverb and try again? When we're ghosts in the Hall It won't matter at all A total eclipse of the heart We're a shell of a thing We're two birds without our wings Can we reverb back to the start? I like you but I like you but What am I to do?

It’s a tale older than I when a man’s lover leaves him and he’s left looking up at the sky to wonder and cry oh I look at the night and wonder where you are, there in the starlight you shined so bright each morning when I held you in my arms I think you might be filling up the night with the light of your charms but you’re so far away though Luis Acevedo from me I thought I’d hold you forever That I’d always hold the warmth that you shone You looked to me, and said “Tot, I don’t want to lose you, now or ever” Then you rose, and left me alone I look at the night and wonder, do you see my eyes reflecting shining your light that falls on me like tears from the sky up above you shined each night in the outfield just for me, or was i only projecting

i remember the first time i looked up at you your hair was blowing in the breeze when you combed your fingers through your wisps of hair, i knew that i wanted your shadow arms around me i remember when you gave me a quick glance a month ago i remember it like it was yesterday the dance of light your opal-coloured eyes left me entranced you're the perfect girl in every way so i was thinking if you wanna grab some lunch some day? beats some child's score in pinball at the arcade? we'll have a lovely time, and we'll somehow end up at mine we'll snuggle, watch bad movies, drink a nice refreshing tea i don't ask for much, i just enjoy your company goodwin morin, hold me in your arms make sure i am away from god's that harm i love too much of you that it is hard to keep it concise who knew ancient shadow magic was so warm and nice i remember the time that you pitched at the lovers you seemed a little dazed by it all you fumbled with the ball as i gossiped with the others of my crush that is 7 feet tall i remember when two of my friends left you charmed the envy inside of me grew then i stepped up to the plate, and i saw in your eyes that i may have charmed you too so i was wondering if you wanna meet up after the game we’ll go to a diner, you’ll order pizza and i’ll order the same we’ll walk around all night, holding hands under the streetlights we’ll walk down to our buses, as the city starts to wake end the night off with a parting hug, that neither wants to break goodwin morin, hold me in your arms make sure i am away from god's that harm i love too much of you that it is hard to keep it concise who knew ancient shadow magic was so warm and nice and i wish i had more time to know you listen to your words that sound like gold maybe it’s too late, maybe you found another date, leaving my phone cold but i guess it’s fine, i guess it’s fine during the siesta i went up to seattle to see a friend of mine from long ago i saw you on the side of the street, staring at the gravel but i felt too awkward to say hello so i walked a different path than the one that gloogle maps said i was 7 minutes late, and the coffee tasted like dread as i remembered that night, with your opal-coloured eyes you summoned five arms just for me, just to say goodbye i wish that i had done better to stay in your life goodwin morin, you held me in your arms i was surrounded by your pure unrelenting charm looking back, i guess one hug wasn’t enough to suffice who knew ancient shadow magic was so warm and nice

i see you walking on the field and my heart starts to thunder i wonder if your defense will ever yield when i see you round the bases i think about all the places i'd take you if i could the puget sound, the pitcher's mound the stadium ground, just to kick around 'cause everywhere seems magical with you it's difficult to tell you in a splort that kills off half its players but here i am spilling my soul on a wing and a prayer i'm stumbling over my own tongue but i think this message is better sung than said, so with that said i'm in love with a blaseball player i'm in love with a blaseball player i see you round the city streets i try to catch up and talk to you but i don't know what to say so all that ends up coming out is "uh, um, i think you played really well today" you say thanks, because you're nice even though i am now dying inside and i think i might be the most awkward person who has ever walked the earth but then you give me that smile and all is forgotten it's difficult to tell you in a splort that kills off half its players but here i am spilling my soul on a wing and a prayer i'm stumbling over my own tongue but i think this message is better sung than said, so with that said i'm in love with a blaseball player i'm in love with a blaseball player it's hard to fall in love when tomorrow we could wake up and have to face horrors undreamed of but i think i am anyway i can't stand not to find a lifeline in this game

from the moment I saw you I knew you'd be the most exciting man in my life but from the moment you joined me my darling you've been standing on the edge of a knife you rose above all the rest, dear with no fear but now I think you're in over your head love, I swear that it won't be you or me if someone's coming out of this dead I'd kill for you though I'm afraid of having to... with a heart full of love and a mouth full of blood I'm comin' back, comin' back, comin' back up got my hooks in the win I can taste it again gonna save, gonna save you and all of our friends you took us all to the top then the champions and god, they ground us into the dirt I'm gonna take care of you now don't know how but I'm sick and tired of letting you hurt now look at everyone taking from our team when we've got nearly none left to lose you can't steal from a thief, see you taught me so let me take a step in your shoes I'd kill for you though I'm afraid of having to… with a heart full of love and a mouth full of blood I'm comin' back, comin' back, comin' back up got my hooks in the win I can taste it again gonna save, gonna save everyone that I can I'll make the strikeout, take their blood, how good it feels to bring it home now bring the fire now, bring the crows, look how much stronger I can grow I'll defend this team alone... I'd kill for you I'm not afraid of having to... with a heart full of love and a mouth full of blood I'm comin' back, comin' back, comin' back up got my hooks in the win I can taste it again gonna save, gonna save everything that I can with a heart full of love and a mouth full of blood I'm comin' back, comin' back, comin' back up got my hooks in the win I can taste it again gonna save, gonna save anything that I can

hey. this is kinda out of character from me i don't talk about myself that much, and you'll probably think it's funny guess it couldn't make things that much worse to just let my facade crack so i'll write a song to help me pass the time until the day you come back it might be too long and i couldn't get the rhymes to work and if you tell me that you think it's good i'll- (be normal about it, i'll be- deeply, deeply normal. yeah, right.) (let me try again) i miss you. it's strange to admit i've never had much i could cling to, my guy, you were all of it and they say i overreacted but i've been waiting for you so long that all my yeast putrefacted i think it was cool what you did but lame. mostly lame. and also not cool at all you, like you do, took the world on your shoulders why not let someone catch you when you take the fall? i miss you. it's strange to admit i'd like to be the one to save you but i don't think i'm cut out for it i miss you. it's cliched, just a bit but i keep your old ballcap on the counter where we used to sit and i say a small prayer to whatever god's out there waiting for me at the end that someday i'll be selfish in a way that helps me instead of just hurting my friends but for now my dough's gotta rise. not much else to do but switch a timer on, and wait in the kitchen for you (guys, you don't really have to back me up or anything, it's--oh. okay. this might as well happen) (alright i gotta do the outro, everybody clear out) the alarm woke me up, my dough's risen too and you left me all alone, waiting in our kitchen for you
