The air is thick and it burns with the heat of your lies, your lies Time slows down then it stops dead like your eyes, your eyes The way that things used to be, you relying on me Oh, snap yourself out of it, snap yourself out of your lies, your lies You don’t deserve a love song No words of love we spoke You’ll reap this storm of love gone So wrong, we are undone Undone Oh catch yourself out, you keep catching the light with your eyes, your eyes Too stupid to see the truth here and watch you deny, you deny Strap yourself in for the ride, ran out of places to hide Trapped in a cage, oh you're trapped in a cage with your lies, your lies You don’t deserve a love song No words of love we spoke You’ll reap this storm of love gone So wrong, we are undone Undone I only wish you never knew what I wanted My skin burns with the echo of your touch I can’t remove the memory of that feeling I curse myself for giving you too much You don’t deserve a love song No words of love we spoke You’ll reap this storm of love gone No words of love we spoke You don’t deserve a love song No words, no words You’ll reap this storm of love gone So wrong, we are undone Undone

I Dare You 06:11
This summer, wish you were my lover All day the rain soothes my daydream This summer, I ache to bring you gifts But every day steals more one flower Ooooh Ooooh D'you never wonder if I'm breathing without you If my heart is closer to breaking Every night I've been thinking about you But you're using her as your disguise Smoothing the edges of thought Washing down the barriers This summer, wish your peace was shattered The sea between us in tempest This lover can wish you didn't matter But behind his kiss you seek my eyes Useless, jewelled in steady death Whilst you lie there in her This summer I wait alone for dark This summer I wait alone for dark Nights I just lie back, let my fingers slide and graze Rough like yours might be Keep my eyes open, watching the body you draw in your mind Tracing it for you, gently Drawing you here a hundred times Useless, jewelled in steady death While you lie there in her My lover My daydream Come, I dare you Come, come, come, I dare you I dare you I dare you I dare you I dare you This summer, wish you were my lover All day the rain soothes my daydream My lover My daydream Come, I dare you

Casino Blues 03:21
It's party time The next round's mine Ain't leaving here till I'm a millionaire Roulette's my game Ain't got no plan Gonna spend my rent, my tax, my soul It's never easy when you're down on your luck Sometimes you win but you know it's a fluke Spinning away Spinning away Spinning away Spinning away Spinning your way back home The morning dawns On the night before The party's over, don't you know? Such a mystery All the things you see The party's over, don't you know? It's never easy when you're down on your luck Sometimes you win but you know it's a fluke Spinning away Spinning away Spinning away Spinning away Spinning your way back home

Don't damn a man without reason The ropes will catch him in the end His life float by regardless Just one hand to count his friends The path appears to end in darkness He stumbles on but there's no light All his dreams are hiding from him In the shadows of the night But what is happening here A trial without a crime There's no escaping They're getting higher all the time The odds against tomorrow Today has brought this misdemeanour His pulse is flowing to the shore The fire's been left untamed He can't take it anymore But if he pulls himself together He knows that he can't lose He's gotta start believing Strike a match, light the fuse But what is happening here A trial without a crime There's no escaping They're getting higher all the time The odds against tomorrow The odds against tomorrow The odds against tomorrow The odds against tomorrow The odds against The odds against The odds against

Autumn 02:22
Rain again this autumn Without promise now that destiny's sealed Watery light can only manage half a rainbow What treasure have I lost with you? Is there any yet to find in her? What treasure have I lost with you? Is there any yet to find in her? Rain again this autumn Without promise now that destiny's sealed

The Island 02:48
I have to go I have to go Now the load I bear Has been lightened I have to go I have to go Now my eyes have been They've been widened Do you even Understand why Understand why Understand why I have to go, go, go, go, go Understand why Understand why Understand why I have to go, go, go, go, go I have to go I have to go Now my darkest thoughts Have been brightened I have to go I have to go No matter what you say This wrong I'm righting Do you even Understand why Understand why Understand why I have to go, go, go, go, go Understand why Understand why Understand why I have to go, go, go, go, go, go, go, go, go I have to go I have to go Now my self-esteem Has been heightened I have to go I have to go The noose round my neck Has been tightened I have to go I have to go Oh I have friends to meet And they're in hiding I have to go I have to go I have friends to meet On the island On the island On the island On the island

Right Here 06:24
Ever feel like someone’s at your shoulder Looking through your eyes Don’t you feel like we are getting older Ever wish we’d never said goodbye Don’t you feel sometimes like you’re writing Your life for me to read Don’t you think I turn the page uninvited Happy you’re with her Sad for losing me Used to be my past and my tomorrow Glassy eyed, forgiving all my faults Was it unavoidable to leave me on this shore Take the time to think of me, if you think you have the time Wasn’t I the one who stole the moment Written in the book of who you are Did you lose your courage love, the past is gone Did you ever think we’d let it go so far Used to be my past and my tomorrow Glassy eyed, forgiving all my faults Was it unavoidable to leave me on this shore Take the time to think of me, if you think you have the time Tied to the ending Tied to the start Try not to doubt me you’re tied into my heart Try not to doubt me you’re tied into my heart Used to be my past and my tomorrow Glassy eyed, forgiving all my faults Was it unavoidable to leave me on this shore Take the time to think of me, if you think you have the time Take the time to think of me, if you think you have the time If you think you have the time If you think you have the time If you have the time If you have the time If you have the time If you have the time If you have the time If you have the time If you have the time If you have the time

First Time 05:15
There’s a first time for everything In a small town, you need to leave Wide open sky, a wire ring Pretend to mean forever When you really don’t believe And oh, I remember Breathing in the colour of your hair I wanted you to sign your name in blood for me And promise me that you’d always be there There’s a first time for everything Stars always shine for you and me Lost innocence, like poetry All told, in the end, it was never meant to be And oh, I remember Breathing in the colour of your hair I wanted you to sign your name in blood for me And promise me that you’d always be there It's all in the past First love is not supposed to last There’s a first time for everything Blue never seemed so blue All that I chose over you Pretend to mean forever, if only it was true And oh, I remember Breathing in the colour of your hair I wanted you to sign your name in blood for me And promise me that you’d always be there There's a first time There's a first time There's a first time There's a first time
