Maggie Rogers Past Life

Oh, I could feel the change a-comin’

Felt it in the breeze

Oh, I could feel the change a-comin’

Comin’ right for me

Oh, I could feel the change a-comin’

Saw it on TV

Oh, I could feel the change a-comin’

Saw it staring right on back at me

Oh, I could feel the shadow comin’

Straight on down the line

Masquerading like you was a friend of mine

Oh, I could feel the darkness wrappin’

All its arms in mine

Oh, I could feel the world was turnin’

All inside my mind

Oh, I could feel the world was turnin’

All inside, all inside my mind

I knew it when it started

Felt the shift right as it parted

Saw my feet cried down below me

Saw the whole room move around me

Saw my old life and my old friends

Saw me haunted, saw me back again

Oh, maybe there’s a past life comin’ out inside of me

Maybe it’s the song I’m singing’

Maybe everything’s just turnin’ out how it should be

Maybe there’s a past life comin’ out inside of me

Oh, maybe there’s a past life comin’ out inside, inside of me

Maggie Rogers Color Song

Ooh, ooh, ooh

Now that the light is fading

Silver and purple at twilight

Scenes of the day remain with us

Bright as the fire is burning bright

Blue is the sky above the lake

And blue the water flowing

White birch drooping on the shore

Rubies of emerald glowing

The night is roped in spangled black

And soon we shall be sleeping

Beyond the moon, the horizon high

The radiant dawn is creeping, creeping

Down through the leaves, the sunlight

Came in shafts of gold

Now by the dying embers

We watched the day grow old

Maggie Rogers Retrograde

You said, “I can’t take no more”

Lying by the sycamore

And I know we’ve both been here before

You said, “Fuck, let’s leave the blame”

But heartache always feels the same

And I know we’ve both been here before

Here I am

Settled in

At your house

Broken blinds keep the light coming out

And I am just the shape I’m in

Here I am

Settled in

Crying out

Finding all the things that I can’t do without

Oh, I am giving in

Oh, I’m in retrograde

Oh, I’m in retrograde

Retrograde

Standing staring straight ahead

Listening when Stevie says

“Mmm, come out of the darkness”

Feeling all I’ve ever known

Fall away and letting go

Oh, come out of the darkness

Here I am

Settled in

On your floor

Quieting all the world outside your door

And I am reckoning

Here I am

Settling

Freaking out

You bring me in to help me let me get you out

Oh, I…

I’m in retrograde

I’m in retrograde

Oh, if only I could give in

If I could get out

If only I could break in

You could let me out

If only I could let go

If I could sit out

If only I could get back

If I could let me out

Oh, I’m in retrograde

I’m in retrograde

Maggie Rogers Overnight

I remember way back, late night, throwback

Sitting on the front lawn talking

When I lost it, and do I lost it

I remember you were saying you would come back, come back

Find me on the front porch like that

But you waited, so I got wasted

And I’ve always said I’d never let myself hold on this long

‘Cause people change overnight

Things get strange, but I’m alright

I’m still here, and I’m still high

And I’ll still meet you in the middle of the night

But if you lie to me, lie to me, lie to me

I’m gone

I still wonder if I called you, what would I do?

Leave you too long voicemail that I hate and then erase it

I’ve got planned it

And I wonder if I still lived in the city, would I see you at a party

Take a big sip of my whiskey and then I’ll leave quickly

And pray you missed me

And although I still know exactly how this ends I keep holding on

‘Cause people change overnight

Things get strange, but I’m alright

I’m still here, and I’m still high

And I’ll still meet you in the middle of the night

You know I’ll meet you in the middle of the night

But if you lie to me, I’m gone

Oh, I feel it in me

Please forgive me

Leave this memory

Don’t say you miss me

I know it’s still in me

Please forgive me

Leave this memory

Don’t say you miss me

‘Cause people change overnight

Things get strange, I’m alright

I’m still here, and I might still be high

‘Cause I’ll still meet you in the middle of the night

But if you lie to me, lie to me

Change overnight

Things get strange, but I’m alright

I’m still here, and I might still be high

But I’ll still meet you in the middle of the night

Know if you meet me in the middle of the night

You know I’ll meet you in the middle of the night

But if you lie to me, lie to me, then lie to me

I’m gone

Maggie Rogers Fallingwater

Hold on

I thought that I could take it from here

Oh I thought that I was calm in the clear

Now it’s getting harder

Hold on

I thought that I was doing so well

Oh like everything was under a spell

Now it’s getting harder

I never loved you fully in the way I could

I fought the current running just the way you would

And now I’m in the creek

And it’s getting harder

I’m like fallingwater

Go on

And tell me just what I’m supposed to say

As if it could be any other way

Oh it’s getting louder

Go on

And tell me just how I could allow

All that’s light to end up somehow

Where it’s getting darker

I never loved you fully in the way I could

I fought the current running just the way you would

And now I’m stuck upstream

And it’s getting harder

I’m like fallingwater

Fallingwater

Fallingwater

And I’m like fallingwater

Set me free

You were like fallingwater

Coming down on me

I never loved you fully in the way I could

I fought the current running just the way you would

And now I’m in the creek

I never gave you everything I wish I could

I should have seen it coming from the way you stood

But now I’m in the creek

And it’s getting harder

And it was coming down on me

When I was standing in the creek

I’m like fallingwater

Maggie Rogers Back In My Body

I was stopped in London when I felt it coming down

Crushing all around me with a great triumphant sound

Like the dam was breaking and my mind came rushing in

I was stopped in London, oh, I was awakening

I was

I was so embarrassed and I almost ran away

Two times round the block before I decided to stay

Puffed along a cigarette that went and made me sick

Spent another day pretending I was over it

This time I know I’m fighting

This time I know I’m (back in my body)

This time I know I’m fighting

This time I know I’m back in my body, oh

I’m back in my body, oh

And all along the highway there’s a tiny whispering sound

Saying I could find you in the dark of any town

But though that I am here and in the poem of my mind

The silent, twisted words finding their way in every line

All this time, all this time

This time I know I’m fighting

This time I know I’m (back in my body)

This time I know I’m fighting

This time I know I’m (back in my body)

Lost you in the border town of anywhere

I found myself when I was going everywhere

This time I know I’m fighting

This time I know I’m

(Back in my body, oh, oh)

(Back in my body, oh, oh)

(Back in my body, oh, oh)

All this time, all this time

All this time, all this time

All this time, all this time

All this time, all this time

This time I know I’m fighting

This time I know I’m (back in my body)

This time I know I’m fighting

This time I know I’m (back in my body)

Lost you in the border town of anywhere

I found myself when I was going everywhere

This time, I know I’m fighting

This time, I know I’m back in my body, oh

Back in my body, oh

I’m back in my body, oh

Back in my body, oh, oh

Maggie Rogers Split Stones

I can see all night you’ve been on split stones

Trying to make it so we could play loud

Picking at our souls like we didn’t notice

Like we were only playing with the sound

Trying to control what was so low, but

I never knew how then to just go and let it out

Let it out

But if you could fight, if you could choose

If you could say all the things you wanted to

If you couldn’t lie

If you would only move like you had something to lose

If you could cry, if you couldn’t sleep it off

If you could feel everything you’ve ever caused

If you couldn’t lie

If you would only move like you had something to lose

Like you had something to lose

Like you had something to lose

And I’m not saying I would always speak up

That it didn’t creep up on me all the time

I’m just saying there was a window

Where you could’ve let go in that place and time

Laughing all it off like it was innocent, oh

All I ever wanted was to get rid of it and let it out

Let it out

But if you could fight, if you could choose

If you could say all the things you wanted to

If you couldn’t lie

If you would only move like you had something to lose

If you could cry, if you couldn’t sleep it off

If you could feel everything you’ve ever caused

If you couldn’t lie

If you would only move like you had something to lose

Like you had something to lose

Like you had something to lose

And I could see us there, you staring at me

And me just praying for it

I could see us there, standing cheek to cheek

And counting week by week

Wishing everything would be clear

I could see us there

I could see us there

But if you could fight, if you could choose

If you could say all the things you wanted to

If you couldn’t lie

If you would only move like you had something to lose

If you could cry, if you couldn’t sleep it off

If you could feel everything you’ve ever caused

If you couldn’t lie

If you would only move like you had something to lose

Like you had something to lose

Like you had something to lose

Maggie Rogers Light On

Would you believe me now if I told you I got caught up in a wave?

Almost gave it away

Would you hear me out if I told you I was terrified for days?

Thought I was gonna break

Oh, I couldn’t stop it, tried to slow it all down

Crying in the bathroom, had to figure it out

With everyone around me saying, “You must be so happy now”

Oh, if you keep reachin’ out

Then I’ll keep coming back

And if you’re gone for good

Then I’m okay with that

If you leave the light on

Then I’ll leave the light on

(Light on, light on, light on)

And I am finding out

There’s just no other way

That I’m still dancing at the end of the day

If you leave the light on

Then I’ll leave the light on

(Light on, light on, light on)

And do you believe me now that I always had the best intentions, babe?

Always wanted to stay

Can you feel me now that I’m vulnerable in oh so many ways

And I’ll never change

Oh, I couldn’t stop it, tried to figure it out

But everything kept moving and the noise got too loud

With everyone around me saying, “You should be so happy now”

Oh, if you keep reachin’ out

Then I’ll keep coming back

And if you’re gone for good

Then I’m okay with that

If you leave the light on

Then I’ll leave the light on

(Light on, light on, light on)

And I am finding out

There’s just no other way

That I’m still dancing at the end of the day

If you leave the light on

Then I’ll leave the light on

(Light on, light on, light on)

I’ll leave the light on, oh

Would you leave the light on?

If you keep reachin’ out

Then I’ll keep coming back

But if you’re gone for good

Then I’m okay with that

If you leave the light on

Then I’ll leave the light on

(Light on, light on, light on)

And I am finding out

There’s just no other way

That I’m still dancing at the end of the day

If you leave the light on

Then I’ll leave the light on

(Light on, light on, light on)

Oh, if you leave the light on

Then I’ll leave the light on

Oh, if you leave the light on

Maggie Rogers Burning

I’ve been sleeping

Barely dreaming

Through one year and one half

Found another

Called him my lover

Helped me get my old self back

It was you

It was you

Only you

You remind me, oh, you bring me back

And you said

“Let me help you wake you up

Let me help you break you up

Let me help you open up”

I’m in love, I’m in love

Oh, I’m burning

Oh, I was reckless

Once was breathless

Running from that day I snapped

But I’ve got a feeling

And keep believing

I’m never gonna give this back

It was you

It was you

Only you

Oh, I’m never gonna give this back

And you said

“Let me help you wake you up

Let me help you break you up

Let me help you open up”

I’m in love, I’m in love

Oh, I’m burning

And if you’re giving up, would you tell me?

I’m gonna keep this love if you let me

And if you’re giving up, would you tell me?

I’m gonna keep this love

And you said

“Let me help you wake you up

Let me help you break you up

Let me help you open up”

I’m in love, I’m in love

Oh, I’m burning

“Let me help you wake you up

Let me help you break you up

Let me help you open up”

I’m in love, I’m in love

Oh, I’m burning

Maggie Rogers Alaska

I was walking through icy streams

That took my breath away

Moving slowly through westward water

Over glacial plains

And I walked off you

And I walked off an old me

Oh me oh my I thought it was a dream

So it seemed

And now, breathe deep

I’m inhaling

You and I, there’s air in between

Leave me be

I’m exhaling

You and I, there’s air in between

You and I, there’s air in between

Cut my hair so I could rock back and forth

Without thinking of you

Learned to talk and say

Whatever I wanted to

And I walked off you

And I walked off an old me

Oh me oh my

I thought it was a dream

So it seemed

And now, breathe deep

I’m inhaling

You and I, there’s air in between

Leave me be

I’m exhaling

You and I, there’s air in between

You and I, there’s air in between

You and I, there’s air in between
