about

west's second album shows a maturation into herself as a music artist as she explores, with skillfully nuanced lyric and layer, the complex topics of gender and identity, the absolute elusiveness of both, and how love might show itself in these embodied realms.

Track Name: my bedroom burns
today i woke up to a storm a beautiful fire on my floor
the neighbors saw the smoke and hail and they simply said
we don't understand
thoughts of you run through and through me
bedroom burns incense pachouli
you turn turn around in my mind
like a piece of art i watch you unwind

the icy waters that want for my soul
your tricks are no good here away we go
the people in the background chatter and chatter
looking at the fat cat look how he's fatter
the sky was free when i came to you and the people in the background wonder how i bought the moon
thoughts of you run through and through me
bedroom burns incense pachouli
you turn turn around in my mind
like a piece of art i watch you unwind
Track Name: flowers
i see flowers blooming from the hours
with her floating high above the towers
below us see the bees buzz the busy bees are buzzing
no one can touch this a secret garden surrounds us
flowers and soundscapes i hear my love in symphony

someday maybe time will come and change me
will you not forget this and the songs we sing in symphony
Track Name: without a map (remastered)
everything i'd say came out in the wrong way
why can't you find the one you fell in love with

here, my dear, i need you to hear this
here, my dear, we are

something to remind you love
something to let me find you love

black and white all night, my heart and your arms
i watched your appetite hide away, under guard
i crawled into the sky, alone, unafraid
i took apart each star and they fell to the earth
why can't you find the one you fell in love with

something to remind you love
something to let me find you love
Track Name: boyhood (remastered)
if you had the time i'd love you like a valentine
reaching for your name but like all the days you pass on by, here
wake up on my own i never thought i'd grow this old
how does he stay so real when he left so very long ago, here

all the games we played in here before the drugs, the golden years
i saw you naked saw you cry, you are not the same as i, am
we grew up and i was told i couldn't go where daughters go
too many nights we tried to die, all that's left is you and i, am
Track Name: the girl you see (remastered)
