Track Name: Stargazing
Head up, by waterside, I'll catch you out, catch you out tonight.
Lips shut, eyes open wide, not a word gets out from all that's on my mind.
All that is in my heart, is all that is in between us.
Head up, by waterside.

We can talk for hours sat under the stars.
But all these little lies, never get me very far.

Head up, by waterside, I'll catch you out, catch you out tonight.
Lips shut, eyes open wide, and into darkness we'll search for light.
All that is on my mind, is all that is in between us.
Head up, by waterside.

It's so cold but I don't want to leave here.
With my tongue tied tight, all my thoughts just disappear.

We can talk for hours sat under the stars.
But all these little lies, never get me very far.
I'm just holding out on you again. Another chance to play pretend.
I'm holding out on all my friends.
Track Name: Berliner
A thousand feet up,
We are onto a climb,
If we both take it slow,
We can both just take our time.
Halogen lights all in a row,
Out into the cold,
They'll lead us home.

These ticker tape lines,
Passing us by,
As the air clears my head,
The smokes stings my eyes.
Encase it in frames,
And lock it away,
But try as we might, memories escape.

Don't,
Hold me to your plans,
I am just starting,
To find out what I've been missing

We've got, we've got, all the time that we need.
We can take our time, take the time that we need.
Nowhere, nowhere, we've got nowhere to be.
We can take our time, take the time that we need.
Track Name: Quiver
In the light, it all unfolds.
We've left ourselves overexposed.
As colour fades, to subtle greys.
The lines we laid, were left to late.
But in the dark we see a spark and hold on hope.
But daylight breaks and it escapes as all we know,
Comes rushing in, with no restraint.
Down your throat, into your veins.

Wake up and smell the ashes won't you,
Close your eyes.

In the dark, down in the heat,
I'm losing weight, and grinding my teeth.
I haven't left my room in days.
On two hands can count the steps I take.
But in the fade it's not too late to make a start.
But all that's left is letters kept and question marks.
Every word it resonates, I find myself in everything you say.

The quiver in my voice, almost gave it all away.
Until I pushed it deep down, until I found the words to say.
"May every step you take, put you further down your path."
Because I know deep down, your heart's not mine to have.

We're just lines of thread, with knots for heads, with knots for heads, with knots for...

We can stitch ourselves together,
When we erupt at the seams,
We can tie ourselves down,
With all the comforts that we need.
We can close our eyes, to every sign that we see.
So we can be the same.
So we can always be.

I let the distance divide us.
I let the divide define us.
Wash away any trace of blame, that stains my hands.
But it sticks around, like what a coward that I am.
Track Name: Glow
My lipstick red stained cheek.
And her heart set on mischief.
As my blood begins to boil.
"Oh you're always the victim"

Her eyes lock onto mine.
She's getting closer one step at a time.
With every inch of myself, I smother the scream "This is not where I want to be."

Don't tell me to calm down.
Oh what do you know.

You left this trail for me to find.
So I started one of my own.
In case somewhere further down the line,
I'd change my mind.

The heat, has me.
Two feet, barely hold me.
The heat, has me.
Two words, come unravelling.

I can drink this drink, and you can tell me about the rabbits again George.

Cracks have formed,
In the walls we built,
But we can paint them up,
To look like patchwork quilts.

But it hangs around my neck,
Then slowly slips into my chest,
Take hold,
It's how I know,
When I'm alone.

But it hangs around my neck,
Then slowly slips into my chest,
There's always something left unsaid.
I know.

The glow in the dark fake plastic stars on my ceiling,
The planets and moons, they capture the feeling,
Of innocence once had, but now lost and is gone.
But I'd rather them glow than turn the light on.
