Deep water 03:36
I chopped the wood when I learnt to walk And I made the ropes from the dreams of a child I carved the mast with the knife from my heart And I found the sail in the back of my mind There were times when it all came apart And all I had were splinters in my hands So I made it stronger second time around Now I don’t need an anchor, no I don’t need an anchor Deep water, clear Deep water, blue I’m heading for deep water I’ll throw the rope in the boat and climb on I’m setting off….. for deep water All my friends line up on the harbour wall Cuz these knots have got to be untied So push me off and let me catch the wind Cuz I don’t need an anchor, no I don’t need an anchor Deep water, clear Deep water, blue I’m heading for deep water I’ll throw the rope in the boat and climb on I’m setting off for…. Deep water, clear Deep water, blue I’m heading for deep water I’ll throw the rope in the boat and climb on I’m setting off….. for deep water

I screamed in silent disbelief This love was never meant to be Meant to be I’m lasting longer every day No need for you to choose my fate Choose my fate Murder romance, bury love I think I’ve had enough Kill the last dance So I can chase…….. Butterfly wishes I’m leading the champagne parade A smile is tattooed to my face To my face I won’t be manically yours I wont be watching when you fall When you fall Murder romance, bury love I think I’ve had enough Kill the last dance So I can chase…….. Butterfly wishes Murder romance, bury love I think I’ve had enough Kill the last dance So I can chase…… Butterfly wishes

Ark in C# 03:51
November poured like wine They climbed aboard to hide Two by two But it’s not me and you So I guess I’ll learn to fly I was your first love But I was not enough Rose by rose Drowning in your prose Til the day you left me for the flood…. What had I done? Noah, please come back for me Let me show ya, that we were meant to be It’s not over, til the earth becomes the sea Come back for me It’s getting dark out here How could you disappear? Blood and thunder Makes me wonder What happened to the sun? Weren’t you the one? Noah, please come back for me Let me show ya, that we were meant to be It’s not over, til the earth becomes the sea Come back for me You could be the dove And I could be the olive branch We could fall in love Just give me one more chance Noah, please come back for me Let me show ya, that we were meant to be It’s not over, til the earth becomes the sea Come back for me Noah, please come back for me Let me show ya, that we were meant to be It’s not over, til the earth becomes the sea Come back for me

We build our lives on our debris We build our lovers as we bleed And rows of buildings fall The way that we will all You know, Our masks weren’t made to fit But who can we forgive? You know, It’s not the time for guilt Cuz we’re all dressed to kill We cast our shadows to the sea We cast our shells on misery And rows of buildings laugh Cuz we weren’t built to last You know, Our masks weren’t made to fit But who can we forgive? You know, It’s not the time for guilt Cuz we’re all dressed to kill We thought we’d never beat again, but we will beat again, and we will breathe again, and we will beat again, and we will feel again, and we will beat again, and we will breathe again, and we will beat again, and we will feel again, and we will beat again and we will feel again….

Cold spell 03:58
If we wait, it may warm And we’ll weather out the storm But it’s coming down now If we wait, we may see Its just frost spangled on the trees And we’re coming round now If we leave, we may break And it’s quite a lot to take If it’s just a cold spell If we slip, we may fall Yeah the ice could take it all If it’s just a cold spell Oooh oooh oooh Icy winds will rattle my bones I’ll wait for you all alone The twilight snow looks so blue Final meeting kingdoms align The rusty stars will not shine Until I find it with you Na na na na na na na na na na na na na na na na, it’s just a cold spell Na na na na na na na na na na na na na na na na, it’s just a cold spell If we wait, it may warm And we’ll weather out the storm Cuz it’s just a cold spell If we wait, we may see Its just frost spangled on the trees And it’s just a cold spell Oooh oooh oooh Icy winds will rattle my bones I’ll wait for you all alone The twilight snow looks so blue Final meeting kingdoms align The rusty stars will not shine Until I find it with you Na na na na na na na na na na na na na na na na, it’s just a cold spell Na na na na na na na na na na na na na na na na, it’s just a cold spell Na na na na na na na na na na na na na na na na, it’s just a cold spell Na na na na na na na na na na na na na na na na, it’s just a cold spell

Made for us 02:54
Peacefully dreaming Secretly pleading You’ll ache for us You’ll break for us You’ll ache for us You’re made for us Silently parting Endlessly masking You’ll ache for us You’ll break for us You’ll ache for us You’re made for us But you don’t know me like you should And you can’t be my robin hood So say that you don’t believe 3 times and I will leave you Emptily being Fearlessly endearing You’ll ache for us You’ll break for us You’ll ache for us You’re made for us

Birds fall 02:38
Birds fall from my window So I don’t crave you on my own I would fall for you But you don’t have a clue I wanna die next to you I’d remove my mask and breathe my last for you I wanna die next to you I’d bleed so fast if you’d just ask me to Birds fall from the rainbow To paint me with champagne so… I can fall for you It’s time that you knew I wanna die next to you I’d remove my mask and breathe my last for you I wanna die next to you I’d bleed so fast if you’d just ask me to Birds are barking Bees are marching Trees are sparring Seas are parting Day is dawning Stars are falling Bells are roaring I’m crawling… to you I wanna die next to you I’d remove my mask and breathe my last for you I wanna die next to you I’d bleed so fast if you’d just ask me to

On the rocks 02:47
If I buy you a drink will you be my friend? Or at least stay for another song All my hobos and drunks have left again Even they know when they’ve been here too long So the street leaves they dance with my feet until My feet can catch up with my shadow And the unbearable walls, they won’t stay still For a second I’m just living on the rocks I’m still lying beside myself Have you tasted my lovesick liquid delights? My night-time respites, my neon lights Will you be there for me when they call time? When you’ve heard all my screams in the night Will the lid of my box crumble in my hand? Will it tumble like rocks to the sand? Like dry ice to the ground, doubling and Will I stumble? I’m just living on the rocks I’m still lying beside myself The parasite morning, it ain’t on my side In the evening it all seemed so sane I sold the last years of my life And tonight I’ll give them away, and tonight I’ll give them away I’m just living on the rocks I’m still lying beside myself

I live in fear Of strangers taking over Living near To painters painting over All the cracks That live in my foundations Take an axe To my gaps in concentration Leave the wheel I’ll lose it merrily I’ll try to feel As the piano falls on me….. again I’m breaking mirrors over you I lose again The poker tree swears at me I guess again The answer’s not to be I’ll see your dice Keep my cards in desperation Pay the price For my gaps in concentration Lead the way I’ll lose it merrily I’ll seize the day The piano falls on me…. Again I’m breaking mirrors over you A rabbit’s foot Would save me from my own A sharp shotput I’ll take it out on loan A wishing well It will only wish you well It’s time to sell This clover and it’s time to go to… Hell, I know This horse shoe’s not for me I’ll take the blow As the piano falls on me….. again I’m breaking mirrors over, I’m breaking mirrors over you

You said you would come You said you could learn to love We’d live by the sea In a beautiful pea green boat You said you could fly You said we’d go wild We’d live in a cloud With those that never quite made it And we’d sail, oh we’d sail, oh how we’d sail To the middle of the unforgiving sea And we’d sail, oh we’d sail, oh how we’d sail It would be some kind of perfect You said you would empty Your book of kiss list history We’d live peacefully With ghosts living in their place I said I can’t change you We won’t make honey on the moon For now we will live In our beautiful pea green boat And we’d sail, oh we’d sail, oh how we’d sail To the middle of the unforgiving sea And we’d sail, oh we’d sail, oh how we’d sail It would be some kind of perfect It would be some kind of perfect

I’m not lost, I’m not found I won’t make a single sound As I watch the tears of green fall from the trees Melted apples in my blood A single matchstick keeps me up Through disillusioned stars collapsing all around me I’m not broken I’m not broken Any more If I were you and you were me Would you bathe in vicious pity? Give up the ghost before the ghosts have even found you? Would you lie, would you cheat? Or spend daylight chasing leaves? And torch the old you to the ground with all you knew? I’m not broken I’m not broken Any more So breathe me in and spit me out I don’t want to lead your life of doubt Your time is just sterling And sterling’s time ain’t free I’m not broken, I’m not broken, I’m not broken, I’m not broken, I’m not broken, I’m not broken, I’m not broken, I’m not broken, I’m not broken…… Maybe broke but not broken

Swan song 03:24
When you’re leaving for the mountain of love Turn your back on your life When you’re sick of all the oceans of blood Roll your eyes to the light When the fires are burning free as the word And the souls are marching on When your violent tears are no longer heard What will you be hiding from? What will you be hiding from? Cuz someday we, we will be…. Someday we’ll be free When the silent victims are all but gone With their swords cast in stone When it’s time for you to sing your swan song You won’t be on your own You won’t be on your own Cuz someday we, we will be…. Someday we’ll be free When your demons line your side Will you know where I am? When you’re saying your last goodbyes Think of me if you can Cuz someday we, we will be…. Someday we’ll be free, be free We’ll be free
