I know it’s nothing but a curse But I’ll pray for you in vain You’d hate to be on my mind But I’ll pray for you in my time I know it’s getting late No point wasting the days I walked ‘round through the streets of our time Couldn’t spot where you left me behind Your back Over my head Out of reach Everything moves But nothing’s new You can leave it all behind But I’ll still love your mind I lay back on a changing tide And tried to look down the line Life doesn’t make much sense No point trying to pretend Maybe I’ll drop you a line sometime If you don’t write back well that’s fine You know we care We always will Everything shifts Everything’s still There’s a rope Behind our backs Everything moves But nothing’s new

Sleepers 02:38
Sleepers sleep through the day through the week while life drifts onward Sleepers crimes are nothing sublime just a little too distant You're probably thinking that it’s time It has been for a while But I fell for a distant gaze And that's just our style Sleepers sleep on the real tough speak while the days get darker Sleepers dream through the troughs and the peaks, keep their path oblique and follow your heart You're probably thinking that it’s time To pick up the slack But I fell for a distant gaze And she's got my back Nah nah nah nah nah nah.....

Alive 04:12
I saw you out on the lawn Met my gaze carried on I didn’t know how to carry on Losing touch, holding on Lost nights, try to remember Feeling alive, feeling alive Blue skies in the middle of the night Feeling alive, feeling alive I was once hypnotized Now nothing left but cloudy skies I don’t know how to say goodbye Is it time, to run it dry Lost nights, try to remember Feeling alive, feeling alive Blue skies in the middle of the night Feeling alive, feeling alive And I thought I couldn’t wait to be alone I’ll guess I’ll find out And I thought I couldn’t wait to be alone I’ll guess I’ll find out And I thought I couldn’t wait to be alone I’ll guess I’ll find out

Upside Down 03:39
It must've been a trick, yeah a, a trick of the light That turned all these faces upside down tonight ‘Cos I’ve got the sunshine that bends through the air And tells you all the secrets of love and despair Like who do you love And what’s the fuss Who do you love Apart from me, baby Would you trade your fortune and fame For a sentimental favourite who will go unnamed And it worked in my head when I was sitting out back But when they turned on the lights it’s a heart attack Like who do you love And what’s the fuss Who do you love Apart from me, baby Let it grow Watch it bloom Whatever happens There’s a place for you Let it grow Watch it bloom Whatever happens There’s a place for you Let it grow Watch it bloom Whatever happens There’s a place for you

Carry On 03:01
Carry on When the night sings And your ears ring, you think Carry on When the time bends And the party ends, you just Carry on You feel hopeless You feel breathless, then you hear me whisper Carry on, carry on You know I love you Just let it come to you Carry on When the day breaks And your head aches, you just Carry on It’s all routine A dull daydream, where you Carry on Into nowhere But you don’t care, because you just Carry on, carry on But you know I love you I’ll tell you again You know I love you Just let it come to you

Dakota 02:32
I put a stop to my wages I tore up manuscripts and pages And I felt free, for a while And then I broke down in denial Oh my Dakota You’re getting older Can you help me break my hold of Feeling blue, getting old There’s no paint on the canvas Just an absence filled with sadness And I’ve seen friends come and go But only one stayed through the snow Oh my Dakota You’re getting older Can you sit here let me ponder What it means What’s my fate Nights go by I dream awake Is this a phase It’s getting late Strike a match Until it breaks Oh my Dakota You’re getting older Can you help me break my hold of Or just sit, a while, with me
