Track Name: Beginning
on the edge of the sea
where you took that part of me
fingers crossed in the sand
is it still where you stand

pain of the sun
calling as one
I have come undone
before it’s begun

try and see
trust in me
try and see
trust in me
Track Name: Bones
forget your fear
forget your fear, jump and be free
it’s one more step
just one more step and then you’re home
and I
I will be right there by your side
and you
yeah you can feel it in your bones

in your bones
in your bones

well listen, you can’t break a lie
I’m telling you now
it’s safer not to sleep alone
‘cause I, I could run my fingers through your hair
and you and me, we will have starlight in our bones

in your bones
in your bones

I could be mistaken
these could be lies
can you measure up their size?
if I could change a thing or two
well, I leave it up to you

and once you’ve done
and once you’ve done you can’t go back
to glow or fade
to glow or fade is but a choice
well you can choose
well you can choose to change your track
well you can find
well you can find your little voice

find your voice
find your voice
find your voice
find your voice
Track Name: Flood
The water’s rising, it’s rising, it’s rising up
it must be something I said
and I am searching, I’m searching, I’m searching out
is there still time to forgive?

my heart is beating, it’s beating, it’s beating hard
I feel it pull in my chest
and now I’m running, I’m running, I’m running fast
no time to think of regrets

If I could save you, if I could find you
if I could keep you safe from the flood
if I could help you, if I could raise you
stop you from hurting, you are my blood

I would move mountains, I would cross borders
I’d raise an army, bring them to war
I’d give it everything that I had
until I was looking into your eyes once more


and now the clock keeps on ticking
the sun keeps on slipping down
our time is rolling away

we could be miles from the nearest point
where we could rest a bit
before we start the next day

I don’t know how long this little boat
can keep us safe – I don’t know
how long your eyes will stay dry

but I am searching your waves for a small piece of land
or for a bird from your sky

and if I could give you reason for living
if I could help you learn to break free
if I could show you all of this beauty
if you could see the things that I see

I would move mountains, I would cross borders
I’d raise an army, bring them to war
I’d give it everything that I had
until I was looking into your eyes once more
Track Name: On the importance of spirals
just for a year, she said
just for a year, and then I’ll return
and our lives will begin again just like before
and we’ll pick up and start again just like before

just hold me tight, she said
remember this when you’re cold at night
life is long and there’s so much time for making up
even if you take someone in to warm you up

and so ‘till the sun comes back
then we’ll wait a year and we’ll wait a year again

we made our lives our own and we’ll
make ‘em up and we’ll make ‘em up again

we made our promises and we’ll
break ‘em up and we’ll break ‘em up again

we’ll have to wait and see will we
still be here, will we still be here then?


the biggest lie, she said
the deepest fear stuck in me now
that you’d put on your boots and step out in the snow
that you wouldn’t remember and you’d let me go
that you’d put on your armour and you’d let me go

and so ‘till the sun comes back
then we’ll wait a year and we’ll wait a year again

we made our lives our own and we’ll
make ‘em up and we’ll make ‘em up again

we made our promises and we’ll
break ‘em up and we’ll break ‘em up again

we’ll have to wait and see but I think
we’ll be here, we will still be here then
we’ll have to wait and see but I think
we’ll be here, we will still be here then
we’ll have to wait and see but I think
we’ll be here, we will still be here then
we’ll have to wait and see but I think
we’ll be here, we will still be here then

we’ll be here then
Track Name: Trace a Universe
the kind of thing
I think you would like
I pulled some strings
come over tonight

don’t ring the bell
just let yourself in
don’t need to talk
just need to begin

you want to try
ditch your other plans
you cannot know
until you feel my hands

and through the night
imagine what things
investigate
when it’s yourself you bring

when we lie in the dark together
we trace a universe inside our open arms
we can lie in the dark together
tracking bits of light across our dim lit forms

and oh
when I reach for you
and oh
this was overdue
and oh
done beyond a doubt
and oh
test, over and out



just hold it there
don’t move and don’t speak
a quiver there
your quick breath on my cheek

these tiny moves
that stave off our ascent
hold hold hold hold
then we go once again

when we lie in the dark together
drape yourself across me sighing to the floor
you are mine in the dark forever
these explosions they are what we were made for

these explosions they are what we were made for
these explosions they are what we were made for
these explosions they are what we were made for
these explosions they are what we were made for
Track Name: Maggie
and Maggie felt so abandoned
she shoulda done a bunch of things differently
and now she's listening alone to a different song
and now she's thinking of me

but go, go, be who you need to be
go, go; be who you are
go, go: don’t stand on promises
you don’t need me to tell you you’re free
you’re free

stuck in the pavement
electric light scares you so
but there are guns in the dark
I wonder what you’re afraid of below it all
‘cause you’ve gone wide of the mark

and now go, go, be who you need to be
go, go; be who you are
go, go: don’t stand on promises
you don’t need me to tell you you’re free
you’re free

inst.

and now go, go, be who you need to be
go, go; be who you are
go, go: don’t stand on promises
you don’t need me to tell you you’re free
you don’t need me to tell you
you don’t need me
Track Name: Newbridge
meet me at the panda store
and we’ll go
and we’ll go and we’ll go and we’ll go

there you will
you’ll be perfect
and you will and you will and you will


can we please leave this story
can we still change this fate
can we be once more reborn
can we or is it too late?
a flight to find ourselves
a new bridge to a disparate state
as we wind our way together
as we try to keep our story
straight


in dreams of water
there they’ll see us
and we’ll fall
and we’ll fly and we’ll swim

but then one day you’ll
realise we’re broken
and you won’t hear from me when you’re old


can we please leave this story
can we still change this fate
can we be once more reborn
can we or is it too late?
this flight to find ourselves
this new bridge to a disparate state
as we wind our way together
as we try to keep our story
straight
