Track Name: In These Walls
In These Walls

I’m coming around to the world outside my window
They’re taking it down and I know the view will change
And the sound of another prisoner’s call
Fall’s like a leaf
With what’s hidden in these walls

It’s been a long time but the dust has started settling
I’m writing my name in it’s skin, and every day
It grows thicker, like the branches of the ash
That hide my face
In the safety of these walls

There’s something that you used to tell me
That time can kill where patience fails
You told me not to be a stranger
I was and the wind fell from my sails
The wind fell from my sails

The corners won’t hold the glass that makes my window
It’s melting away into the cracks made by the wind
And the river at the bottom of the stairs
Calls out my name
As I sink within these walls

I’m turning away from the world outside my window
I’ll no longer stay with these castings from the war
And the door now opens out instead of in
And as I leave I hear you singing in these walls

There’s something that you used to tell me
That time can kill where patience fails
You told me not to be a stranger
I was and the wind fell from my sails
The wind fell from my sails
The wind fell from my sails
The wind fell from my sails
Track Name: Back On The Road
Back on the road
Letting the perspective take the load
Squinting at the sun
You hold the road just like a gun
And there’s no going back
Your bridges burned your fuses blown
And your tired of all that
Reach for the horizon on your own

You came too far, got out of the car, 
this time you know you can’t admit defeat again
You give you take, you love and you hate, 
hold your head high you’ll get back on your feet again
There’s only one direction you know, you can’t escape but your free to go

And when your buried at sea
And the fish and waves pick your bones clean
Ocean reads your life
From the book she tears the pages free
Now there’s only a spine
Where the love and wisdom used to be
Dancing with the tide
You look to the moon for company

You came too far, got out of the car, 
this time you know you can’t admit defeat again
You give you take, you love and you hate, 
hold your head high you’ll get back on your feet again
There’s only one direction you know, you can’t escape but your free to go
There’s only one direction you know, you can’t escape but your free to go

Ooo when your eyes shut slowly you’ll float away
With a paisley sail you’ll conquer the world
You’ll take her hand in yours down on the chamomile
She’ll look at you and smile
Like a queen…
Track Name: Come Back To Me
Come Back To Me

It’s been to long now
I’ve waited for you
I never thought that
I’d see it through
I look for the signs in the sky above
I only find your love
Waiting for me by the road
It’s been five years now
I’ve thought of you every day
I never thought you’d do that
Fly away
And the sun shines brighter when I think
You’re still here
The world turns and you disappear

Come back to me now
I need your loving
I want you in my arms
One more embrace now
Till the end of time I
Want you in my arms
Take the needle from your palm

The pieces shatter
Then fall back in place.
It’s not the same but
It works anyway.
I looked for the signs in the sky above
I only found your love
Waiting for me by the road
It’s been five years now
I’ve thought of you every day
I never thought you’d do that
Fly away
And the sun shines brighter when I think
You’re still here
Then it goes and you disappear

Come back to me now
I need your loving
I want you in my arms
Just one embrace now
For the end of time I
Want you in my arms
Take the needle from your palm.
Track Name: Before I Fall
Before I Fall

The sun floats down to the river’s edge,
And the leaves are all clapping up above my head,
The stones make me slip but I won’t get wet,
And I know that the pike hasn’t seen me yet

I’m a long long way behind you, but I’ve never been out this far
And the sound of the river running, is the sound of a breaking heart
La la la la la-la-la-la la laaaaaaaa
La la la la la-la-la-la la laaaaaaaa
Make me strong, before I fall

I’m holding a branch as I make my way
But there’s not much left I don’t think it’s safe
It snaps from my hand but my balance stays
My hands turn to wings and I fly away

I’m a long long way behind you, but I’ve never been out this far
And the sound of the river running, is the sound of a breaking heart
La la la la la-la-la-la la laaaaaaaa
La la la la la-la-la-la la laaaaaaaa
Make me strong, before I fall

I see your face on the river bead
I can hear your voice as the rapids spread
I feel your love as the river turns red
And I know that I’m not ready yet

I’m a long long way behind you, but I’ve never been out this far
And the sound of the river running, is the sound of a breaking heart
La la la la la-la-la-la la laaaaaaaa
La la la la la-la-la-la la laaaaaaaa
Make me strong, before I fall
