Track Name: Cobblestones
i’ll wash your limbs in the icy stream of my laughter
as flightless birds we tremble upon the hot embers
i came to this place just to open my wings to the winter
but the light bursts from our mouths like some kind of poisoned water

don’t go running on cobblestones
come back and see me sometime
you keep growing sadder keep going backwards
keep on closing your eyes

like a newborn baby blindly stumbling out into the rain
you didn’t realise that you wouldn’t be allowed inside again
the breeze of early morning slips its rings once more round your fingers
now you wait filled with hate just to try to find a feeling that lingers

don’t go running on cobblestones
come back and see me sometime
you keep growing sadder keep going backwards
keep on closing your eyes
Track Name: Not The Only One
every morning i’m chasing rainbows
get to the bottom
see what it shows
got to the bottom where the butterflies glow
ain’t no escape from your to and fro, you know

your’re not the only one

take me places where i never been before
then lock them away behind your wall you know
i got the window but you got my view
‘cos i wanna see what a view with you can do

you’re not the only one

every morning i’m chasing rainbows
get to the bottom
see what it shows
got to the bottom where the butterflies glow
ain’t no escape from your to and fro, you know

your’re not the only one
Track Name: Bruised You Too
i hardly slept a wink last night
barely even closed my eyes at all
but i dreamed that you were there with me
dead fish on the surface by the shore

what was so hard to find
is easy enough to lose
i got so far behind
that the disappointment bruised you too

another invitation here
seemed to be sent right through time
i cant believe you want me there
i just don’t know what goes on in your mind

what was so hard to find
is easy enough to lose
i got so far behind
that the disapointment bruised you too
Track Name: Sun Gate
the sun gate is always in the right place
Track Name: Over Your Shoulder
weather will break today
rain’s gonna wash it all away
bring in the sheets it’s clouding over
dragging the dream over my shoulder

water will come and soak you
dressed up as a tear that nearly choked you
flow like a stream as it gets colder
been looking for light over your shoulder
Track Name: Small Animals
hope i die laughing cos i slept through the day i was born
think it was a tuesday but you know i can never be sure
spring breathes deeply breathes all the children back to life
mothers left weeping ‘cos they know just as you know nobody survives

when you’re playing with your lovers heart
its like pulling small animals apart
so you whisper into your lovers ear
so glad you’re here

just like ships, guess we must ride with the tide
like the substitute i am, i wait until you need me
if my hands weren’t tied, i’d be by your side,
but you’d have someone else in mind,
someone else in mind
who you’ll find in the little bit of kind
of thought that you’d never be listening
and silence seems to be breaking the clean
the clean of the air which stops me from breathing

when you’re playing with your lovers heart
its like pulling small animals apart
so you whisper into your lovers ear
so glad you’re here
Track Name: Autumn Flight
look how close they come to you
an intelligent distance to the door
see the leaves sailing on the breeze
in an autumn flight right to the floor

despite ourselves we go to them
to spite ourselves again
despite it all we live with it
it’s an autumn flight right to the end
Track Name: So Far Away
sometimes i get so tired
wanna’ take my muscles out
lay them on the side
next to you
and trains won’t bring you back to me
planes been grounded to save the trees
and all that means is that

i am so far away from you today

sometimes i look so hard
wanna’ take my eyes out
rest them on the side
next to you
and trains won’t bring you back to me
birds are grounded to save
disease and all that means is that

i am so far away from you today
Track Name: Black Ice
late night lightening strike hard
returning the keys of a rented
car watching the tv catching the times
we’re expecting delays because

black ice covered the runway
i cannot lift you to the sky

there’s a passionate feeling somewhere here
it’s an estimated boredom that slipped
right through the years
it’s a common example of the things
we do to test each other
oh you keep your distance dear

black ice covered your lifeline
i cannot lift you to the sky

see the patterns form around your feet
i expected so much more from you
you got what you wanted
back when i started falling apart

black ice covered your lifetime
you slip and you always seem to slide
Track Name: April Eyes
the things you make me do
make it hard to fit the feelings to the shapes you move
it’s a shame the time it takes to get things through
all because the love you needed was the love you’ll lose
you’ll lose

when the sun it rains
i get the feeling that i can fly
but the rain it stays
as close as your april eyes

the times i been myself
make it hard to be the me delivering the wealth
it’s a shame the cards you feel that we been dealt
are the same cards here lying on my shelf

when the sun it rains
i get the feeling that i can fly
and the rain it stays
as close as your april eyes
when the moon it breaks
it’s like a ray down from the sky
and i’m closer to wanna stay here all night

as a matter of fact the wheel still turns
and the sun still shines so bright that it burns
well now i’m ok and i’m alright
i’m just blinded by the moonlight

when the sun it rains
i get the feeling that i can fly
and the rain it stays
as close as your april eyes
when the moon it breaks
it’s like a ray down from the sky
and i’m closer to wanna stay here all night
