U.O.I. 04:42
Turn to face I'd forgotten what it takes I'm not violent anymore I'm not silent either It's too late No decisions left to make You've not bothered anyone You've stopped crying, cheater! So we wait And we gather up the page I gave you my father I gave you my soldiers Save the date It's not too much longer, hey? It's not no-one looking It's not nothing to come in Dissolve away Throw out all our un-used takes I'm not silent anymore But my violence awaits

Ooh ooh ooh ooh ooh... Long night trailing in your shadow Now when time begins to narrow You were all I wanted You the one who cared When I needed courage Power to be held Held in our willing hands Long night trailing in your shadow Now when time no longer matters You blew in from somewhere Wisdom on your tongue Contradictions, make-believe Magic to be born Born in our willing hearts Born in our willing hearts Born in our willing hearts Ooh ooh ooh ooh ooh... Long night trailing in your shadow Now when time begins to narrow You were all I wanted You the one who cared When I needed courage Power to be held Held in our willing hearts Held in our willing hearts Held in our willing hearts Well I'm old enough to know better I know enough to see The years go by so quietly Yet another Sunday comes and goes Another Monday waits for me And I'm old enough to know better I know enough to see The years go by so silently Yet another Sunday flashes by Another Monday turns to the sky Ooh ooh ooh ooh ooh...

The pieces on their own You came out swinging, I waited Are stronger than the whole You came for blood, I was patient We'll take them on alone You were my anger, my anchor We're big enough, I know You took my fears, and made them all But if we back down Our eyes are open, we're golden That's all she wrote Our eyes are open now, they are open now Closing in on you Watching every move Say it if it's true Waiting for the proof I know this once I'm right Hey come on Tick tock it's time The people left alone I took advantage, we managed Will do just as they're told You came for help, we held on Please don't back down You were my mirror, my motive, devoted Word won't get round But what you came for was stolen If we fall out Our eyes are open, we're golden That's all she wrote Our eyes are open now, they are open now Closing in on you Watching every move Say it if it's true Waiting for the proof I know this once I'm right Hey come on Tick tock it's time

He follows me Through the trees On his knees amongst the reeds So discreet And just at once He takes in all of me It's what we seek Head or tails One moment of release And there's one true love who waits for us Out of the way and hidden up Until he comes you'll find the rest But I won't love you again No I won't love you again, no Didn't anyone say it's fair Didn't anyone help prepare For the loneliness you'd find just waiting there I've got a wallet full of 'I don't knows' and 'No-one Dares' We could disappear and nobody would care Yeah I followed you downtown Hoping maybe you would stop and turn around Turn around Fortunate for my place Didn't break despite this weight Until you face what we made I won't love you again No I won't love you again, no I'm fading out Fading out Within a life without You followed me But it's not like I knew where to lead I'm not the kind of guy to leave anyone behind That doesn't help explain just why I'd leave Maybe I'm so sorry it was wrong When you woke alone and I was gone But I felt it better to move on And you got away Yeah, you got away, hey? Didn't need you Couldn't see through Wouldn't be true Sorry that I failed Sorry that we failed Our fault in that is shared Finally Finality You gave up on me All I have found All we have blown All falling down All that I've shown You should have seen You should have known That by the end You'd be alone Once at the end you'd be alone All alone He follows me Through the trees On a path no-one leaves So complete And all at once Lost himself to me You and me Could not believe It wasn't meant to be

Young love An old love left behind New love An old love not on my mind We made what we could out of what we had We leaned on each other to see if we held Tread softly when you go, telling everyone you know I'm the one, you were right Ooh through heartache and sorrow Ooh through darkness and shadow Don't worry about the sunset, this house we built will hold us Ooh the heartstopping endings Ooh the ones least suspecting You wrote the book while I wrote the song Young love Our old pride left to mend New tide To turn our thoughts to instead We were left to ourselves and we left in a rush The life that we lead is in spite of it all Tread softly when you go, telling everyone you know I'm the one, we were right Ooh through heartache and sorrow Ooh through darkness and shadow Don't worry about the sunset, this house we built will hold us Ooh the heartstopping endings Ooh the ones least suspecting You wrote the book while I wrote the song

Shorter Days 03:40
Clouds gathering rain In the moonlight glow Shorter days and icy mornings Bracing for the cold Snowflakes fall, snowflakes melt It's a windy day On the western shore The lines are down, the power's out And our evening's on hold Snowflakes fall, snowflakes melt Wild storms Break the silence of the night Come close Trees are shaking in the sky In the morning frost In the quiet dawn All is calm the worst is over All is bright in turn Snowflakes fall, snowflakes melt Wild storms Break the silence of the night Come close Trees are shaking in the sky Snowflakes fall, snowflakes melt

Polished with lyme Turn on a dime Together in time But only just This city is mine The bottom line A matter of time But only just Call and reply Try to deny We'll keep you as mine But only just

I've bought love I've bought faith Never alone Never in wait Solid heart Cinched in waist (No-one needs to muddle through) Busted tart But what a name (Do what you do, I won't let you) Don't fret Every little detail is set You'll get just what you deserve I'll bet By now our lives are spent By Jove! What have we done? What a mess! I won't be held responsible I won't be held responsible No I won't be held responsible Didn't care Couldn't bear To look under the bed at night Wouldn't share Couldn't tell All the lies I've had inside Did you fare alright despite the water's turning tide? I'm not there I'm sorry love But I'm not the type to care

Insight 02:51
Still your words come back to me Walking some phantom fine line The lines that we draw We know them so well And still we're missing everything Brave your simplest enemy Fear is the last one standing It kicks to the curb And keeps out the good And leaves us lost and loathing See the dark and clouded eyes The distance rolling in across the prairie skies The harsh hand of judgement leaves No space to breathe Illusion leaves its watermark Looking into our fine lives One for good measure One for the road Until it's overflowing Swim fast and for our lives The racing hearts and bellowed lungs that keep us dry A small start, a new idea The space we need
