Track Name: Every Time You Go
My love I say if only for tonight. The streets are empty and the night is wide. Words fly over telephone wires. I can be in your head in less than five. Wearing drunkenness like a suit of arms. Counting the pavement cracks like lucky charms. It’s been three years and you’re still mine. Every once in a moon, every once in a while. And the light gives away what the night’s yesterday let me hold in my arms, oh what can I say? Baby please stay ’cause when you go away I get lost, I get lost, in a world far away. Where the sirens’ say “come with us, come with us, the rocks are so far away.” Where the pirates’ play, “walk it off, walk it off to the sound of the waves.” Everytime you go. But nobody knows. In all the tenses we collide. Your victory and my suicide. A meeting of two restless lives, where we always leave a man behind. So I’ll tell you that I’m fine with borrowed words in stolen time, and hate you when you fail to find the truth in all my whitened lies. And the light gives away what the night’s yesterday let me hold in my arms, oh what can I say, baby please stay ’cause when you go away I get lost, I get lost in a world far away. Where the siren’s say ‘come with us, come with us the rocks are so far away.’ Where the pirates’ play, ‘walk it off, walk it off to the sound of the waves.’ Everytime you go. But nobody knows.
Track Name: Time
Remember me when I am gone away. Forget the things I didn’t say. Pictures of faces, of smiling places, are the prices we pay. Our memories scatter out, a merry-go-round of how I felt at the time. This ‘one for the books’, becomes ‘one for the road.’ And all of the cups of coffee and the ‘see you tomorrows’ were pulling on petals and one for sorrows. Is it liars or clowns that control the locks to my home? Because when I grow up I always wanted to be something more than just a ‘you and me’, I was always the one who jumped from the tallest trees. But time does what time wants, it doesn’t wait for you, doesn’t wait for me. And life goes where life wants, you don’t own the rights you don’t have the keys. And so it goes… Oh my love’s a red red rose but it doesn’t matter now, and so it goes. Sounds pretty when it’s broken, but where it’s gone noone knows. So la la la la I close my eyes, try to remember what it’s like to feel surprise, to ‘I will love you still my dear, till all the seas gang dry’. But time does what time wants, it doesn’t wait for you, doesn’t wait for me. And life goes where life wants, you don’t own the rights, you don’t have the keys. And so it goes… I remember when I was ten I cycled to your house and rang the bell, you said ‘hello’, I froze, got on my bike and rode as far away as I could go. To be climbing trees or stuck on my knees? When I miss the sun and I miss the breeze. So this is me now, this is me saying goodbye to you. And so it goes. So it goes.
Track Name: The Boy Who
The seasons have changed five times since I met you. The air is cold again and baby you’re still the one who I want to hide in the dark of my bed and drink red wine with, turn down the sound with. Outside my oasis the streets buzz like catwalks as the shoes from the trees taunt the art on the pavements, but my bed is an igloo, when you’re in it I don’t ever want to open the curtains. But I’ll never be this young again. If I don’t blow you away now then maybe I never will. And there’s a world outside my blues and there are treasures to be found. And there’s a life outside of you with a steadier ground. I long for you, for the times inbetween, before the guards change and I’m left wearing shadows of your hands, before the light leaves the words from before hanging like undeveloped photographs. I want to tell you that you got on through the right door but since the bus stopped I’ve been trying to keep my feet on the floor, because I don’t speak the language you hear when she talks in the code you’ve grown to know. And I’ll never be this young again. If I don’t blow you away now then maybe I never will. And there’s a world outside my blues and there are treasures to be found. And there’s a life outside of you with a steadier ground. Outside my window the music is playing, the people, the market, I feel like I’m failing. Why can’t you see it that my heart is taken? And if I was stronger I might keep on waiting. But the seasons have changed five times since I’ve met you, the air is cold again and baby you’re still the one who.
