Track Name: Islands
fill this with silence)

Silence, and we're sat silent.
We're our own island.
Don't need words - we converse in movement.
We do this with the hills our witness.
It's our strength and weakness -
It always was

With these eyes, we can shout,
Shatter glass, deafen doubt,
Drown out all others
With these worlds in our hands,
An imagined expanse
Leaves our bodies twitching

Though time leaves its scars
You still look like stars, you do,
You always will

(fill this with silence)

With these tears, we can grow,
We can drown out tomorrow,
Leave our hearts drifting.
With these feet, we can show
So much more than we know -
Leave our bodies.

Silence, and I'm sat silent,
I'm my own island -
Don't need words; don't needs hers,
Just...
Track Name: Solar System
One day I'll be part of something,
And part of someone
Given half a chance

My heart holds a solar system
A solar system
But not at first glance

I feel I'm in my very own orbit
It seems I'm in my very own universe
I'm struggling to put this into words

I'll survive, flinging my arms out wide
Soon I'll be singing I am yours and you are mine
I'll be singing I am yours and you are mine.

I'll run rings around your body
Around your body
And you will mine

My eyes are faded to a faint glow
But dying stars know
That there's still time

I feel I'm in my very own orbit
It seems I'm in my very own universe
I'm struggling to put this into words, I'm in reverse.

I'll survive, flinging my arms out wide
Soon I'll be singing I am yours and you are mine
I'll be singing I am yours and you are mine.
He'll take his time and my goodness, I'll take mine
For now I'm happy fooling myself I don't care
For now I'm happy fooling myself that he's there.

Everyone falling in, falling out of love.
Track Name: Soweto
It's like we're the ocean
And she's the breeze
And our only hope is calm seas.

It's like we're the sunrise
And she's a cloud
And our last chance is dry ground.

So let me go Soweto,
I'm just guts and I'm just bones,
We're just human, but we know
If we waste this moment, we won't grow.

She's got us anchored
To the sea floor
When all our hopes are pinned on reaching shore.

Yeah, and I never liked her anyway:
I've never met someone so fake.

It's like she's a fox cub
And we're the hounds.

I'm just human, I don't know,
Just wake me up and take me home.
Track Name: This Time of Year
Heavy nights, early starts,
But still we work to perfect our art
But these heavy skies breed heavy hearts

We still take the routes we took before
The cold light of day has just burst through an open door
To blind our hopes with all our flaws

And we want it - we just don't know how
But she said "if you need it,
you're gonna get it somehow,"
And "I'm sorry, but I don't need this trouble"

And I love this time of year
All the sweet and all the sweat and all the sadness disappear

This sense of hope is out and out
The hardest thing we live without
We're still breathing, but we're burning out.

And we get it, we've got wounded hearts
But it's not like we protect our hearts,
And I'm sorry but I don't need this trouble.

And I love this time of year
All the trust and all the hope and all the gladness reappear
Track Name: Bearings
All got different names
Channeling the same way
Rotating around covering much ground

All mapped out in lines
Draw me The Long Divide
Now folded away, the distances all fade.

Just land and sea between us -
It's all connected and we're all connected by one.

I sit and wait by a front door
And put ear to a cold floor
I swear I can feel your footfall
and I'm right next to you

I stand and watch from the pier end
And turn my face to the sea wind
I swear I can hear you breathing
and I'm right next to you

Tell me something new
Just make me feel it too
Physically far, finding it so hard

Hours passing up
Catching up with the time
The days disappear, nothing to fear

I sleep alone but it's alright
I watch the starts, when day is night
Your moon is mine and it shines bright
And I'm right next to you.

You took my heart to the fault line
And flew it up to a new sky
And I'm on the ground as I watch it fly
And I'm right next to you.
Track Name: Abyssinia
I surface splashing, gasping at the night,
Keep my head above the water.
All my limbs are aching, lungs are tired
Sick of holding this together

And all I see is future me:
This path laid out, this destiny
But I can't shake this old city,
I'm losing and I'm tired

She said, "Swim away

"Use the waves, use you words,
Push your body under, Abyssinia"

Desire on a shoestring sunk the boat,
Now we're all in this together.
The clocks go back -
This girl goes back to waste another week,
Witness the ending of my tether.

And all I see is future me:
This path laid out, this destiny
But I can't shake this old city,
I'm losing and I'm tired

She said, "Swim away,

"Use the waves, use you words,
Push your body under, Abyssinia.
Hold your tongue, hold your nerve -
You're just treading water, Abyssinia"

Oh, the morning slips away...
Track Name: Confidence
I know,
it's not the way you've played it, it's the game,
And you're not to blame.
But everyone surrounding you is earning more each day
While you struggle just to pay your way

Too long, they've kicked at me constantly,
No longer
This whole world is stretching out in front of me,

And I'm feeling my confidence growing with every step

You won't know it's happening to you until you're lost
The years have disappeared and you remain,
And you haven't changed
And no amount of fighting it has brought you out on top -
there's no amount of wishing that away

Happiness was deciding to let loose with your tied up tongue
You need to start to believe it
Show them you mean it
Show them who you are
Show them you feel it
Show them the stars
Track Name: Everything Unsaid
Dust collects beneath the bed,
A place that was once filled
Where we left everything unsaid

Heavy heart and heavy head
I lay my dreams down,
Be careful as you tread

Covered mouths with tongues so cold,
Maybe we were just
Growing tired of growing old

All I ever seemed to want was the strength to fight back;
Throw my hands over my head, release and react.
And whatever happens now I guess we'll just adapt -
But to be in love again...

Feel the minutes 'til the day breaks
Upon the cold floor,
Slowly counting down the days.

Silence held us as we lay,
Alone in our thoughts,
We hid everything away.

To be in love again...
Track Name: This Symmetry
Half of me wants to fight
Half of me's scared I might
I'm at a loss for words
She's at a loss for hers:
Shouldn't have dived in head first,

Should've just took it slow
But how were we supposed to know?
Be still my beating heart
Be still my beating heart
Watch as I fall apart

You are a part of me.
We've got this symmetry.
But you're growing out of me
And I don't have the energy

It's too late to start again,
I've given this everything:
So many secret fights,
So many sleepless nights,
So many wrongs to put right.

And though we're both near the end
Imagine we could begin again.
Do you think we'd be the same?
Would we believe the same?
I like to think I'd change.

I don't have the energy
