Track Name: Leave The Lights On
Fallen leaves and the sunlight's getting low.
Now the branches frame the sky from empty roads.

Vapour trails, crossing pylons, silhouettes.
Shadows, homes, libraries, schools, decay and death.

(September) I'm growing too attached, stop me growing too attached.

"I'm outside thinking about lines between stars,
aware that you've left your friends and are approaching"

Leave the lights on, leave the lights on,
Leave the lights on, leave the lights on.

(September) I'm growing too attached, stop me growing too attached.

"Selves - goes itself; myself it speaks and spells"
Track Name: Treehouses
As the dark sky perfectly frames you, for the moment
And it's cold but I pretend I'm not.
And the stars are out in the sky like they were just for you
I hope you find your solace there.

You're still afraid to talk,
you're looking for some inspiration.
You're still afraid to look in people's eyes
'cause you know that it scares you.
'Cause it scares me too.

And I don't know how to speak to you when you're like this,
And I know I speak too quickly when I'm nervous.
I'd smash every globe and tear every map to be lost like you;
to be lost with you, now.

You're still afraid to talk,
you're looking for some inspiration.
You're still afraid to look in people's eyes
'cause you know that it scares you.
'Cause it scares me too.
Track Name: Leave (With) Me
Hold on tight, if this is what you want, keep it close.

Leave me alone.

Leave with me so I don't feel alone
Track Name: Waltzing Into Winter
Every day I can't look away, watching where the apple falls.
(And I don't take pictures of my house)
That's because they speak to me too much, remind me that I'm happy here.

Waltzing into winter, you took me by the hand.
I can't stay here forever, I hope you understand.

Now I'm jaded, I'm not healthy, so I'm going back to the country.
I can't help it, I'm just lazy, so I'm going.

I'll catch a train to anywhere it rains, I love the sound on window panes.
That's alright, I'll be back in a fortnight, I get a little down sometimes.

Strolling into springtime, the summer in my sights.
These days they last for ages, I miss the orange lights.

Now I'm jaded, I'm not healthy, so I'm going back to the country.
I can't help it, I'm just lazy, so I'm going.
Track Name: Fail
You don't even stop to take a breath.
And I don't think you mean it,
Sometimes I think that you're just getting attention from us.
You work so hard,
that the evening hurts your eyes when you walk outside,
and its not like you never care, still it's not like you to cry.

You'll never fail,
All this acting; we're bound to fall out.
You'll never fail,
What's the use in quiet appreciation;
when you know that you're the best.

You learned too much and never stopped,
and you're not going to waste that.
So lose your stupid attitude. Shut up.
You work so hard; why can't you be less melodramatic.
I told you that you won't fail, but you already know that.
Track Name: James 1v19
The quiet, when all the things we could say
cancel each other out.
This will never happen again,
You won't let this ever.

I think it would do you good
to not know what to say,
Sometimes it would do you good
to stare at the floor because you don't know what to say.

The quiet, when all the things we could say
cancel each other out.
This will never happen again,
You won't let this ever happen again.

I think it would do you good
to not know what to say,
Sometimes it would do you good
to stare at the floor because you don't know what to say.

You can't say that, you see no cause for concern.

I think it would do you good
to not know what to say,
Sometimes it would do you good
to stare at the floor because you don't know what to say.


James 1 verse 19

"Of that you may be certain, my dear friends.
But everyone should be quick to listen,
Slow to speak and slow to be angry."
Track Name: Awkward Silence
I planned it, I planned it all.
I had the words all thought out long before.
I walked in and you were there
And you threw me off completely, again.

And you may say I take too much to heart.
And I won't show my disappointment.

And you may say it didn't mean a thing.
And I won't show my disappointment.
And you maintain I take too much to heart.
And I won't show that that's true.

And then I wondered if both a comfortable
and an awkward silence were recorded
Could you tell them apart?

You can't, you can't tell them apart.
Track Name: Beaudesert
When we get there; stay.
When we get there; stay.
When we get there; stay down.

(What if they find us?) Stay.
(What if they find us?) Stay.
(What if they find us?) Stay down.

What if they know that there was nowhere we could go?
My hands are cold, pine needles, pine needles.

What if they know that there was nowhere we could go?
What if they know, in castle ring there's nowhere to go?
I saw torches in between the trees.
Track Name: Song Four For Friends
Stephen, why should I try?
I'll fight you in the playground but you always make me cry.

Jonathan, did you have to leave?
Have you forgot what all those Bible verses mean?

Matthew, you shouldn't care
You'll not be in the action you'll find no trouble there.

James, I never knew
You left me standing - dropped without a clue.

Even though the rain is still falling down from the sky,
These are the greatest days of our lives.
So roll up your sleeves and fight.
Track Name: Tear Every Map
If you change your mind, I'll be here.
