Track Name: Everything Should Be Easy Here
It's time to swim, we'll just throw ourselves in.
Roll on the sand, rough edges on soft skin.
I gave up on a suntan long ago,
I'll stick with the ginger English pasty glow.

It was quiet when we came.
No one saw you, no one harmed you,
Sorry if my words alarmed you.
You're the rainbow in my rain.
No one saw you, no one harmed you,
Sorry if my words alarmed you.

Everything should be easy here.
If it's hard you're trying too hard.

Birds in cages, the rivers, rice and leaves.
Colourful paper windmills catch in the breeze.
A bright fantastic green.
Waters rush to places unseen.

It was quiet when we came.
No one saw you, no one harmed you,
Sorry if my words alarmed you.
You're the rainbow in my rain.
I woke today with a distance before me,
Take a breath and give your story.

Everything should be easy here.
If it's hard you're trying too hard.

It was quiet when we came.
No one saw you, no one harmed you,
Sorry if my words alarmed you.
You're the rainbow in my rain.
No one saw you, no one harmed you,
Sorry if my words alarmed you.

Everything should be easy here.
If it's hard you're trying too hard.
Track Name: Colours
This is the place that I should be,
And yours is the face that I want to see.
So link your pretty eyes to mine
And leave the storms outside today.

We don’t make this easy,
I believe in us, you must believe me.
We don’t make this easy,
I believe in us, you must believe me.

We danced in circles, spun in time,
I held you high, your feet on mine.
Plan our escape, our own design,
Let everything we want align.

We don’t make this easy,
I believe in us, you must believe me.
We don’t make this easy,
I believe in us, you must believe me.

I can see the colours of everything,
I can feel the warmth of an early spring.
Some things come once, believe me,
I’d nothing to lose and I lost it easily.

I prefer to listen than to write.
I prefer my dancing in the night.
An easy trick for a wondrous sight,
I’d rather be happy than right.

I can see the colours of everything,
I can feel the warmth of an early spring.
Some things come once, believe me,
I’d nothing to lose and I lost it easily.

Come in and leave the storms outside today,
Come in and let the colours fade away.
Track Name: I Fell Asleep in Your Covers
My girl it looks as though we survived.
A year has passed, and we're both still alive.
I tried hard to cry and I managed sometimes.
It was lonely without you, as we reset our lives.

I’m secretly surprised tonight,
How quickly it became alright.
Forgive me that I didn't give you more.
We swept ourselves away with friends,
I burned the candle from both ends.
Forgive me that I didn't give you more.

This is my, lowest, lonely smile.
I did so much to hurt you...
I’ll frown ‘til I’m wrinkled,
And I’ll pace ‘til I’m spent.
I fell asleep in your covers,
I lost myself in your scent.

The endless patience that you gave,
There’s never guilt in being brave,
Forgive me that I didn't give you more.
I’m sorry it was harder for you,
You did everything that you had to do.
Forgive me that I didn't give you more.

The endless patience that you gave,
There’s never guilt in being brave,
Forgive me that I didn't give you more.
I’m sorry it was harder for you,
You did everything that you had to do.
Forgive me that I didn't give you more.
Track Name: New Moon
A secret life, a new moon,
Hides the leafless trees.
An icy lake,
As far North as I have ever been.

I'll sing to the moon tonight,
I'll say I'm right.

Spiders on the wood pile,
Ripples on the lake.
You've crossed your heart and promised,
More than I'll ever take.

I'll sing to the moon tonight
I'll say I'm right

The lake reflects the clouds today
Another world, so far away.
If I step out, my arms will raise
and I will float away.
Track Name: Blink Of An Eye
Where the water greets the sleepy land.
Where the silver grasses grow.
Where the sky dips down to smooth the sand.
Where every path seems to go.

If you could tell me just one thing,
What would you tell?
Life is the blink of an eye,
Enjoy yourself well.

Shipyard still busy late at night.
A thousand air-cons hum below.
Trick you into hearing heavy rain.
Purple Singapore glow.

We're drawn to the sea and the sand,
Rain washes the leaves.
The gap between air, water and land.
Ivy binds the trees.
If you could tell me just one thing,
What would you tell?
Life is the blink of an eye,
Enjoy yourself well.

I heard what you said about what makes you happy.
I heard what you said about what makes you sad.
Track Name: The Rain Dissolves Me Away
Standing on the corner, my heart in your hands.
Empty out my pockets, find my shoes full of sand.
Bring me a coffee and bring me back to the world.
I feel bad about my hair but it’s a fight I can’t win,
When you meet me by the bus stop will you know where I’ve been?
You’re so sweet.
Do you know where I’ve been?

I miss you more when you’re further away.
Gather up my thoughts and put them neatly away.
I haven’t slept and it’s cleared my head.
A hundred miles away from the nearest bed.

I’ve lost my way,
The rain dissolves me away.

Standing on the corner my heart in your hands.
Empty out my pockets, find my shoes full of sand.
Bring me a coffee and bring me back to the world.
And find my shoes full of sand.
Bring me back to the world.
Find my shoes full of sand.
Bring me back to the world.
Find my shoes full of sand.
Bring me back to the world.
Find my shoes full of sand.
Bring me back to the world.

I haven’t slept and it’s cleared my head.
A hundred miles away from the nearest bed.

I’ve lost my way,
The rain dissolves me away.
I’ve lost my way, the rain dissolves, I’ve lost my way, the rain dissolves me away.
Track Name: Forgiven, Forgotten
Trees tangle their branches,
Wrestle in the orange street lights.
Wind rushes recklessly through the night.
The time has made a difference,
The sky makes me feel small.
The river knows my rise and fall.

Put on my warmest coat,
Wrap my most colourful scarf around me.
Wander round the South Bank,
Singing along to songs too loudly.

So pack my face with chocolate,
And leave me somewhere nice.
It’s gotten late, wish me goodnight.

Put on my warmest coat,
Wrap my most colourful scarf around me.
I wander round the South Bank,
Singing along to songs too loudly,
In a long forgotten storm.
Forgiven, forgotten.
Reach out your arms and pull yourself together.

In a long forgotten storm.
Forgiven, forgotten.
Reach out your arms and pull yourself together.
In a long forgotten storm.
Forgiven, forgotten.
Reach out your arms and pull yourself together.
In this long forgotten storm.
Forgiven, forgotten.
Reach out your arms and pull yourself together.

I’ll stay out in the storm just a little longer.
Track Name: One More Try
I watch the weather from the train.
The folded fields and endless rain.
It's hard to leave my friends all tucked up safe inside.

Out in the endless New Year's rain,
the windswept sands were slowly swept inland.
I try to read, my eyes chase words around the page.

I would apologise for all I've done,
But there just didn't seem a way.
I'll give it one more try,
I'll give it one more try.
Track Name: Trouble
I find your big eyes beguiling.
They really do it for me.
I find your moves mesmerising.
Looks like trouble to me.

I've the charm of a winner but I can't tell a lie.
It's the sun on my face causing that glint in my eye.
There's a silence around you into which words can be dropped.
Oh my girl, oh my love, how I wish that you were here.

Where were you on the morning the storm finally broke?
I held you high off the ground.

You're a bundle of energy held together with skin.
You're so full of life you can barely hold it all in.
You're a thief, you're a saint, everyone who's ever cared for me,
I hope you've found somewhere to be safe, warm and happy.

Where were you on the morning the storm finally broke?
I held you high off the ground.

I stumbled, I fell, I tripped into the night.
And now I don't want to be a part of this any more.
Track Name: The Longest Day
I moved the furniture when you left.
And now it's like you were never here.

We lay outside-by-side in the garden,
Our eyes on the skies, our heads head-to-head.
The longest day I can remember.
We missed the sun when it finally set.

I remember watching snow from the stairs,
On a cold night, street lights on the drive.
Watching the snowball fight outside.
We stayed in the warm, keeping warm.

I’m moving out, from this sad house.
I moved the furniture when you left,
And now it’s like you were never here.
Track Name: I Love You, Goodnight
Save me with an outstretched arm and open hand,
We’re the team to beat.
I feel knotted up inside, and judging by the looks,
The outside’s not too great.

Have I messed you around?
Because I’m done with messing around.
I wish we’d talked more.
I feel knotted up and sick,
My insides trying hard to twist themselves around and get away.

Going to build my city with you at the centre.
I melt when I see your eyes.
We’ve not made it easy but we’re a team, in it together,
And I can tell you why.

Have I messed you around?
Because I’m done with messing around.
I wish we’d talked more.
And I’ll do my best by you,
I admit I’m scared shitless.
You look after me and I’ll look after you too.

I love you, goodnight.
I love you, goodnight.
I love you, goodnight.
I love you, goodnight.
