Track Name: Don't Know Why
Don't Know Why

It's coming true, you know it's almost over
it's coming true, you know it's almost over
you're missing him
looks like he might be staying
he's listening
can't hear a word your saying

And you're all locked inside
and you're all locked inside

Lying awake by the window that breaks
like your heart, all day
if you could say its over
what will you say
sit in a chair like you want to
as the hours fly
you can only say it's over
I loved you

Now look at you, you think that you
don't deserve it
it's comin' true you think it might
all be worth it
he's listening, it's not a game we're playin'
he's listening, can't hear a word your saying

And you're all locked inside
and you're all locked inside

Lying awake by the window that breaks
like your heart, all day
if you could say its over
what will you say
sit in a chair like you want to
as the hours fly
you can only say it's over
I loved you and I don't know why
Track Name: Take Your Time
Take Your Time

When you take the things you said
and let 'em melt away to nothing
and let 'em drift overhead
like all the things you want

And you take your time
and you try to find
something you can call mine

So why would you cry
even if you wasted so much time
let it fly by
when you can see forever in her

So you let 'em take the things you said
and you let 'em melt away to nithing
and you let 'em drift overhead
like all the things you want

And you take your time
and you try to find
something you can call mine

So why would you cry
even if you wasted so much time
let it fly by
when you can see forever in her
Track Name: Love & Maths
Love & Maths

Plunge into the lake
and float like paper boats
wash away your bad ideas
I'll harbour them for you
as they trace across the sky
burned into a memory

I wonder what you're doin' now
I wonder what you're doin' now

You're so far away
and you can read my mind
I'm thinkin I've been left behind
But you're so far away
that I can't read your mind
I'm thinkin I've been left behind

I wonder what you're doin' now
I wonder what you're doin' now

In the thinning atmosphere
that we will surely fly through
if you just come here
and don't ever go
And if we control the fear
that says its better than the unknown
if you'll just come here
and don't ever go...
Track Name: Weight Of Water
Weight Of Water

When you go you'll go for good and
i'll remember just what I gave away
get home early now, I'll remember
that I'm sitting in an empty room
with nothin' left to say

I found it out well
all this time I gave away
I found it out well
all this time I gave away

It's like it meant for nothing
and your eyes gave it away
well this weight of water gets too heavy
to stay, afloat, today

Now you're gone you're, gone for good and
I remember just what I gave away
I get home lonely now, I'll remember
I'll be sitting in an empty room
with nothing left to say

I found it out well
All this time I gave away
I found it out well
All this time I gave away

It's like it meant for nothing
and your eyes gave it away
well this weight of water gets too heavy
to stay, afloat, today
Track Name: She
She

He waits, for so long
before he leaves
he says, its all wrong
because its real

But she is weak, she's afraid
she's so fragile in his wake
and she is free, she won't stay
but she's scared now every day

She holds me so closely tonight
she holds me so closely

He takes, one last kiss
before he leaves
he tries one more time
to make it real

But she is weak, she's afraid
she's so fragile in his wake
she is free, she won't stay
disillusioned every day

She holds me so closely tonight
she holds me so closely

So now she's weak, and she's afraid
she's so helpless in his wake
and she's not free, she has no say
just went back for yesterday

She holds me so closely tonight
she holds me so closely

He holds her, forever
holds her, forever
holds her, forever
Track Name: Brighter Days
Brighter Days

Sick of all this waiting round
my fading footsteps hit the ground
I think I hear that all the time
The paper walls are looking thin
your broken heart won't let me in
I think I hear that all the time

ahhh

The busy streets are on the go
but you have never felt so low
I think you feel this all the time
There''s always traffic in the way
of what you really want to say
I think you feel this all the time

ohhh

I want you to be
free of all your pain
I want you to see
clearer brighter days

Days

Yeah, yeah

These are brighter days
Track Name: Angels To The End
Angels To The End

I think that you should know
our time is short but now we're born again
to do it all the same
and when they have to go
its all we think about
that we'll never see that point of view again

And when they fall
we live around the clock
and you don't know
that they'll never ever be with you at all

If we could see a sign
a reason for the way it used to be
before the end of time
well then there might just be
a better way to live inside
your heart again

And when they fall
we live around the clock
and you don't know
that they'll never ever be with you at all

And they might fall
to be with you again
to live with you again
to be that way again
Like angels to the end
Track Name: New York & California
New York & California

Theres a light outside my window
and I cannot sleep at all
feels like I've been awake forever
fighting for a lost cause
Theres a light on the horizon
the suns coming up too quickly today
and I feel like I've been lost forever
and all my ambition is draining away

And I know I'm losing the fight
but I can't stay up all night

So I dream of New York & California
and I hold them close and hope they don't fade
I remember New York & California
and all the mistakes I made

Streetlights shining through the curtain
and I don't know what to do
list the things that I know for certain
if that doesn't work well then what should I do?

And I know I'm losing the fight
but I can't stay up all night

So I dream of New York & California
and I hold them close and hope they don't fade
I remember New York & California
and all the mistakes I made

So I dream of New York & California
Track Name: Summer Lights
Summer Lights

The summer lights that sparkle in your eyes
leave the shadows on the floor
another moment as we get in the car
and drive around once more

I wouldn't leave you out here
so don't you leave me out there

The rising tide and lifeless view
look different on this side of the world
and empty condo's rise above and I know
there'll never be another girl

I wouldn't leave you out here
so don't you leave me out there

Theres nothing in the ink black sky
the traffic left for home a while ago
and while theres nothing on the road ahead
you like to drive this slow

I wouldn't leave you out here
so don't you leave me out there
I wouldn't leave you out here
so don't you leave me out there
Track Name: Heartbreaker
Heartbreaker

Sit by the window
and see the moon and count the stars
but in the darkness I can't remember
which one we said was ours

It's not coming back to me
it's not coming back to me

Sit by the window
and watch the cars fade out of view
I see one come from the horizon
I'd imagine that it's you

Coming back to me
coming back to me

And you say that you do
when everything that you want is one thing
and you say that it's true
and everything that you want is something
when you say it's all gone
and everything that you want is nothing
but you say that you care
and we all know you don't care
you don't care
you don't care

And you say that you do
when everything that you want is one thing
and you say that it's true
and everything that you want is something
and you say that it's gone
and everything that you want is nothing
but you say that you care
and we all know you don't care
you don't care
you don't care
