Track Name: i'm not a morning person
i'll see you in the morning
it's been a week or so since the last
i'll see you in the morning
go to sleep to make it come fast

wipe sleep from your eyes
i'm finally here
it feels like i haven't
seen you for a year
your speaking is slurred
and your eyes are all red
who have you been out all night with?

please don't try
when i've given it up
your eyes won't meet mine
have i figured it out
you didn't have to speak
you didn't have to say
this cold winter morning is giving you away

i'm back by 10:30
wet to the bone
it rained all the way
all the way home
i peeled off my clothes
and climbed into bed
it's been a week and i haven't left it yet
Track Name: love bites
you’ve never been good at saying what you’re thinking
i think i’ve only seen you say it when you’re drinking
it’s getting harder to talk to you
it’s a folie a deux a madness shared by two

i'm biting my lip and the blood’s showing through
it feels like your teeth are biting me too
and even when you’re drinking you speak true lies
lies that aren’t true but are true in your absent mind
and i beg and i plead and i fall at your feet
but your balance is off and you stumble over me

im biting my lip and the blood’s showing through
it feels like your teeth are biting me too
and these bites arent nothing but a glorified bruise
that do nothing but remind me of me loving you
Track Name: a cloud above glenferrie station
one falls one falls
as frequent as the rain and twice as transparent
i lie
to be exiled
to be outcast
alone again
how you have your fun

and they just want to tear us up
nights not sleeping
dreaming through the notes on my guitar
ooo
man it kills us
it kills us
and that's what they want
another night alone
i'm a prisoner in my reason
ooo
say no
say no
and hold me when i fade away

a crowd forms
a crows forms
a line to chase the line
you need to stimulate your senses
i'll try
but it's hard to raise a hand
when you lower my defenses
and i know
to be exiled
to be outcast
alone again
how you have your fun

and they just want to tear us up
nights not sleeping
dreaming through the notes on my guitar
ooo
man it kills us
it kills us
and that's what they want
another night alone
i'm a prisoner in my reason
ooo
say no
say no
and hold me when i fade away
Track Name: beach sounds
and i'll be staring out
that window
to the end
how the birds leave
and the trees die
again
and i never thought
that i'd miss this
as i never thought i'd go without
and the thought of another time
oh what i think about

what am i to do on a pretty day like this without you?

staring out that window
yet again
how i wish it was the window
to what you said
and i never thought
that i'd miss you
as much as i do right now
and the seconds pass like days
i'm running
like time is out
Track Name: summer
a lost love in the tree it sits
looking down into the black now
trying to find
calling my name
come home to me
when will i get back here?
how will i get back again?
whats the point of it all
in the warm months?
keep me cold like you always will

oh owl in my tree
sing a song so i can feel
like i belong again
what's the point of it all
in the warm months?
what have i become?
steer me back to the path that i should tread

oh owl in my tree
sing a song so i can feel
like i belong again
what's the point of it all
in the warm months?
what have i become?
steer me back to the path that i should tread

to be already dead
sing a song so i can feel
like i belong again
to be already dead
sing a song so i can feel
like i belong again

and i'm fading out
sing a song so i can feel
like i belong again
and i'm fading out
i'm fading out
steer me back to the path that i should tread
Track Name: fire in the street
we passed shops
filled with counterfeits
to burn for the dead
ancestors in the ground
mother praying out loud
lighting incense and bowing low
bowing low to the ground

fire in the street
it's a fire in the street
cover your eyes
as the gray fills the skies
with that fire in the street

and the smoke fills the air
and the fire in the street burns brightly
and the dread that you feel in your stomach won't leave
but hopefully this will bring you peace

fire in the street
fire in the street
cover your eyes
as the gray fills the skies
with that fire in the street

it's been a while now
but still she cries
and she's stopped wearing black
but i can hear behind my back
she's not smiling
and her sadness fills the air
and the fire in the street burns brightly
and her eyes are bright too
as the tears that fall
are dried by the small

fire in the street
it's a fire in the street
cover your eyes
as the gray fills the skies
with that fire in the street

fire in the street
Track Name: lighttower
here at the beach as the sun slowly sinks into the sand
where i'd rather be
on the sea
no sign of land
be my lighttower and i'll be your raft
and we can float away

if i sleep another night on this hotel floor
i'll break through and lose it all
finally fall
when you realise that people mean nothing at all
we'll float away together

and the fear i felt when we set sail
was unmatched
so vulnerable
so cold
so frail
so guide me my lighttower
i know we won't fail
we'll float away together

no ocean between us but i feel unsure
and i mightn't have much
but we've got each other
so guide me my lighttower
i know we won't fail
Track Name: sand
staring down the barrel
of a life lead
oh what a life lead
a life lead indeed

how i
miss my
former self so bad
so bad i do

living in the shadow of
myself
i'm cold in the darkness

oh i
i miss them so bad
no nights i knew
where did
where did the sun go?
so far ahead
Track Name: the rocking dream
my twisted silhouette is
the landscape of my mine
i don't mind
i don't mind
i don't mind
the fact that our landscape's changing

the days become weeks
i feel weak
i feel
i feel
and that's the cause
because our landscape's changing

what a time it's been
back to the all one
old ones
sad days
and lonely nights
what a time
what a time

i know
i'm turning to the sea
to see
you're drifting away
be mine
be mine and stay
Track Name: the long and painful drive home
here i am
driving at 80
down the black spur at night
oh i try sometimes
but i
watching the lights of the cars go by
i've tried and i've tried

i won't be alone and afraid
i won't be alone and afraid

here i am
headlights peering into the dark
hold my hand
and show me you're near
not a sound
not a song
i am alone
without you near

i won't be alone and afraid
i won't be alone and afraid
i won't be alone and afraid
