Track Name: things that remind me of you
Despite what you think I’ll never be
Nor have I been disappointed with you
And I’m waterproof but not impervious
I’ll shied myself from your grace and your charm

I have forgotten to name
Things that remind me of you

And I love you still so I don’t understand
Why I bite and I scratch at your beautiful eyes
And the bullets fly so I must protect myself
I won’t walk on eggshells anymore

I have forgotten to name
Things that remind me of you
And I never want this to end
I never want this to end

In my nightmares I walk away from you
When I wake up it’s almost true

I have forgotten to name
Things that remind me of you
And I never want this to end
I never want this to end
Track Name: wire wool
you’re becoming wire wool against my skin
it’s dangerous up close and the friction begins
and I don’t need to live my life in stereo
to know what we have is real

and when you feel like that you’ve got something to prove
it’s easy to lose
easy to lose
and it’s dangerous up close and the friction burns
it’s easy to lose
easy to lose
it’s not some kind of game that you can control
you can roll your dice once more but I already know
and I don’t need to live my life in stereo
to know what we have is real

and when you feel like that you’ve got something to prove
it’s easy to lose
easy to lose
and it’s dangerous up close and the friction burns
it’s easy to lose
easy to lose

winning the battle might mean losing the war
Track Name: something in your eye
i know you and you can’t decide
don’t know if it’s dark outside
don’t know if it’s black as night
and you’ve stubborn you don’t compromise
the politicking the rhetoric
doesn’t make the jigsaw pieces fit
and you can’t see
there’s something in your eye

you are everything that she’d choose
Elvis’ blue suede shoes
the Eiffel tower
and you are paul newman in the sting
and the mystery that you bring
is everything

you try to minimise the risk
studing the books and numbers
hasn’t given you the answers
and you’ve got to analyse the scene
remember furtive looks and subtle smiles
it’s the evidence she’s left behind

you are everything that she’d choose
Elvis’ blue suede shoes
the Eiffel tower
and you are paul newman in the sting
and the mystery that you bring
is everything
Track Name: time
take it all in
this scene might never be visible again, my dear
everything has to change
songs are stories
that is why you can never be part of them dear
you’re too real to me

recently moments of wonder are becoming rarer
and increasingly I am unable to trust my eyes
nothing seems clear anymore
nothing seems clear anymore

time keeps moving
all I have to show for it are these weary bones
and a few grey hairs

recently moments of wonder are becoming rarer
and increasingly I am unable to trust my eyes
nothing seems clear anymore
nothing seems clear anymore

take it all in
this scene might never be visible again my dear
Track Name: ignore the monsters
didn’t take too long to forget, forget
yesterday all I saw was you, was you
so hold me, hold me, tightly

all this time you’ve been here waiting, waiting
only in this dark hour will I , turn to you
so hold me, hold me, tightly

ignore the monsters
hiding in the corner
ignore the monsters
be mine

just sleep tight tonight

i’m inside you’re through the keyhole, keyhole
did you forgot who I am, who I am
so hold me, hold me, tightly

ignore the monsters
hiding in the corner
ignore the monsters
be mine

just sleep tight tonight
Track Name: butterflies
and I see you my friend
grinding yourself into the ground
chasing dreams
and I give you some advise
give yourself a chance
one time in your life

like I did before I saw butterflies
dancing in her eyes

and I see you my friend
you walk the miles I thought would fix
these leaks I’ve found
but I’m stronger now
I’ll call frustration trust
And hang it on the line

like I did before I saw butterflies
dancing in her eyes

and those butterflies dance within me
when I look in her eyes
Track Name: a bridge pt. 2
I met you now you course through my veins
And I am over the moon
Over the moon with you
I breathe you in and I will breathe you out
And I am over the moon
Over the moon with you

I won’t ever let you go

And in your eyes I am free

I love you ‘cos you smile all the time
And I am over the moon
Over the moon with you
I love you and your crazy hair
And I am over the moon
Over the moon with you

I won’t ever let you go

And in your eyes I am free

I met you now you course through my veins
Track Name: footnote
Years later they
Uncovered your lives work
And realised, you already knew

In the history books
Searched for your name
And discovered, you’re only a footnote

Retiring and coy
Your nonchalant ploy
And I’ll save you all you need

With a second chance
how differently would you act
I don’t know

Retiring and coy
Your nonchalant ploy
And I’ll save you all you need
Track Name: big brothers watching
Lock up the things you fear
Tigers no longer roam
The prophet from the north
Made Los Angeles his home

You’re so insecure
In your little world
You left him like Jesus
Rejected and despised

Lock up the things you fear
They are too dangerous
Make plasticine pop stars
Who will never speak for us

You’re so insecure
In your little world
You left him like Jesus
Rejected and despised

Big brothers watching you
Go to the diary room to pray

Lock up the things you fear
Karaoke entertains
It’s the only way
For the apathy to be maintained

You’re so insecure
In your little world
You left him like Jesus
Rejected and despised

Big brothers watching you
Go to the diary room to pray
Track Name: role models
we’ve lost our way
said a girl to me
in an un-named bar
Our heroes
have disappointed us
because we thought they were gods

giants that came before
cast enormous shadows I can’t ignore

and our roles models
are broken

imagination was lost
when we extinguished our fears
and I don’t know if we’ll last
another hundred years

and our roles models
are broken

you intimidate
with your perfect skin
mine’s just not so great
