Track Name: Sleepless
I'm sick of waking up inside my own dreams
I know I'm just escaping from me
And the person I was meant to be
I'm losing count of ways to forgive myself
When I should have some faith in the life I lead
Where do our hearts go when this is over?
Are we just like scattered leaves in the wind?
Are we taken with tides of the ocean?
As the waves come in
I'll try to keep my head above the swell
Track Name: The Last Dance
We've been through this a thousand times
And I'm not tired yet
I don't just want to leave this here
I couldn't live with the regret
I think we lay asleep for years
Time flew past our eyes
And I would give up everything
For just one more minute of your time

So take me back to your house
It's where I want to be
That old look in your eyes that burned a hole through me
I think we both finally know what it's like to be alone
One more time I promise, I promise I'll be gone

It's just something I'm missing
It's in those blue eyes of yours
Please take my hand
And Ill follow you home
Dig your nails into my bones

When we've finished this dance
Like so many other times before
We'll lock our arms
And cross our fingers
And hope there's something more
And when we've finished this dance
Like so many other times before
I'd pull you so close
I'd never let you go

So take me back to your house
It͛'s where I want to be
That old look in your eyes that burned a hole through me
I think we both finally know what it's like to be alone
One more time I promise, I promise I'll be gone

Dance a while longer, I'll miss you by my side
Dance a while longer now, I can't say goodbye
I'll never get to your house
It's out of reach for me
That look in those blue eyes, it's finally finished me
I think we both finally know what it's like to be alone
This is it I promise, I promise that I'm gone
Track Name: In Colour
I can remember the taste
That morning your heart fell from my hands
I can still see your face
And the way my soul fell as I let you go

The sun never touches us
Still it climbs through my windows
I let the night cover us
Because it knew our names so well
All our colours were so bright
Still the sun never touched us
But the night would cover us
It knew our names so well

We made a friend of the night's sky
Casting long shadows in the moonlight
But that͛s not how it ended
That's not how I thought I'd deal with the pain
I was looking at you
You were looking at me
And we knew we weren't the same

The sun began to rise on us
It climbed through our windows
The night couldn't cover us
It had forgotten our names
The sun had swallowed our night
It showed us who we really were

We hoped for the best
But all our colours started to run
We walked down your old street
And all our colours started to run
Following signs into our older life
Our colours bled into each other
Until there was nothing left

You go down that old street
Following signs into an older life
Your drive down that old street
And all you remember was the taste

It's such a bitter taste

We let our colours run and bleed into each other
When I look at all we've done, it's just the taste is all that's left.
Track Name: Waiting
Hanging on the end of the phone
I'm hanging on your every word
Dying to see you
Dying in this light
Wanting to hear your voice
Find new ways to tell me it's okay
Wanting to hear you
Waiting to hear myself
Waiting to start again
As the nights get darker
I'll be waiting for our colours to run
As the nights get lighter
I'll still be waiting
For my heart to burst
Track Name: Broken
Lying awake inside my own dreams
Left stranded in mid-July
Waiting to hear your words
Still hanging on that line

I've lost count of the years
I've lost sight of what I'm doing here
Waiting to hear your words
Still hanging on that line

It's like I spend my whole life waiting for nothing
Waiting for my heart to burst

When our Spring began
You made the cherry blossoms shine
And hope hung heavy in the morning sun
Then our summer arrived
And you left without giving a sign
You made the leaves change too soon
But it would take too much to hate you

Because I'm still in love
Just tied to your heart strings
Hanging on every word

Hide my face
Throw what's left of me to the wind
Take me down to the harbour
And cast me off to sea

Because I'm still in love
Just tied to your heart strings
Pulling tighter every single day
Because I'm still in love
Just tied to your heart strings
Hanging on every single word you say

How will there be a tomorrow, when you make me feel there was no today?
So just take me down to the old harbour
I'll take my heart with me
And cast me off into the open water

And when we all drift out to sea
I hope it all sinks to the bottom
Along with everything that you've given me
Track Name: Death of Youth
There's that lump in my throat
The one that I get when I'm sat all alone
Brought to me by anxiety and a life unknown

It's the thought of death it completely surrounds me
It never lets me go

Wait 'til tomorrow, they say
But what if it doesn't come
Because so many things keep ending
As if they'd never really begun

Writing out all these useless words
As if they'll ever mean anything anyway
Writing out words that I͛m never going to read again
Filled with "yours" and "mine" and "yesterday"
And what happened to them

Reliving old stories
I'm too entrenched in my past
Reliving my youth
I think I'm just too long in the tooth

I'm never looking forward
I͛m always looking back
Nostalgic thoughts surround me
As if I'll somehow get it all back

It's these thoughts I carry with me, they weigh on me in my bed
About life and death and dying
And the soil pouring over my head

I'm always counting down
I'm always ready to think the worst

Tied to old stories
Tied to my youth
Reliving old stories
Reliving my youth

It's these thoughts I carry with me, they weigh on me in my bed
About life and death and dying and the soil pouring over my head
Track Name: Lost
If I could measure the distance
Between the lightness and the shade
I could make sense of this dark
And I could find my way

It felt like it was raining
But only inside my head
Waiting in that dark room
For her songs to guide my way

The world won't listen anymore
Not the way that you think it should
The rain falls in the same way
Like it did when I was young
Sitting in that same old room
And just sang about love

I'm sure if I could see the stars
They might shine for me
But all I feel is the rain
And it soaks me to my skin

It seemed like the song played for hours
It turned and it turned and it turned
And I remember it skipped at the part where she sang about love

And I'm still in that room
Next to that skipping record
I'm still in that room
Where the minutes seem like hours
The song plays loud It drowns out my pity
I remember the day and I remember the hour

I remember the day and I remember the hour
It's a vice squeezing on my skull
I remember the minute and I remember the second
And how it came apart so fast

These thoughts will last me my whole life
These thoughts will plague me my whole life
My heart it beats in the same way
Beating out of time

My hearts stops beating in my sleep
Track Name: 1994
I drew a line in the wet sand
Then watched the smoke rise in the distance
Listening to time standing still
The birds in the air
Sing the songs of my childhood
Listening to time standing still

The grey smoke rises
It carries my thoughts with it into the air
My childhood carried on the breeze
The smell of the fire
Makes me long to see your face
It's moments like this where I think I'll forget you

I long for the scraped knees
I long for your kind face
Lifting me up out the sand
The comfort of your hands
It's all lost to the fire
We're all just carried in the smoke
You were lost to the fire

Take my hand
I'm still finding it hard to understand you're not here
But I can still feel you next to me
Oh please take my hand
I'm still finding it hard to understand
You're not here

Death touches us, from the moment we begin to love

I dream you take my hand
And I swear I can hear your voice
Carried on the breeze
And when we're both lost to the fire
At least we'll be lost together
Track Name: Memorial
I've woken up cold
Feeling like the loneliest boy in the world
Waking up freezing
Knowing that you're gone
I'm woken up sick to stomach
Knowing I can never see you again
Waking up so lonely
Knowing that you're gone

I'm having one way conversations with you inside my head
Repeating those words
That fucking kill me to have never said

It's these thoughts that I carry with me
It's that knot in my stomach, it's the pain that surrounds me
I just wish I could say this to you
That after everything that you put us through
I thought that the worst in me was everything that I got from you
(I just missed the chance to tell you)

If I scream loud enough, do you think you could hear me?

And I could tell you one last time how much you meant to me
And how just one little word would help me write a better ending
And I could tell you one last time how much you meant to me
And I could say that I tried my best, and it would help me put you to rest

There is a light and it guides us through
All the heartache that life decides to throw at you

Now I can sing our songs
So much louder than before
They will keep you with me
The soil won't matter any more
