Track Name: Drifter
Carry on my heart, though you're weighing down on me.

Just a drifter on my way, carrying the pain of yesterday.
All these memories I must shake. All the moments gone to waste.

Carry on my heart, though you're weighing down on me.

Don't know how I'll cope, while the world we shared is broken.
I'd like to think I never loved you, but that's not the truth, it's just what got me through.

Carry on my heart, though you're weighing down on me.

Scared to trust again.
Scared to start in case it ends.
Scared I'm nothing that anyone sees.
I'm scared to want.
I'm scared to need.

Carry on my heart, though you're weighing down on me.
Track Name: Tempest
They promised us a storm designed alone to rip.
They say we will go down with it.
But even if this day turns into our last, I would still be happier than when we held their hands.

Away. Let it rain. Breathe the change. Don't go away.

Their tides belied the shore.
White cliffs prepared the frame.
What was whole once before lay twisted in it's shame.

Away. Let it rain. Breathe the change. Don't go away.

A word to the sage.
The beasts do not change.
There's no justice for the brave in the depths of the waves.

Away. Let it rain. Breathe the change. Don't go away.

They promised us a storm designed alone to rip.
They say we will go down with it.
Track Name: December
Come closer, I want your touch.
Oh, hold me. It's never enough.
Your sweet lips, I'm lost in thoughts I can't explain.

Take me now, hold me tight 'til we fall asleep.
Call me yours, you are love & I'm falling deep.

We don't need forever as long as we remember.
We don't need 'together' when we've got December.
Ours to own.

It's always the same old thing.
It's rapture and then release.
Why pretend? It's all happened before, my love.

Take me now, hold me tight 'til we fall asleep.
Call me yours, you are love & I'm falling deep.

We don't need forever as long as we remember.
We don't need 'together' when we've got December.
Ours to own.

Can we get caught up in the state of mind?
Hands running down my spine.
Can we forget tomorrow?
Can we forgo time?
Keep you running to my side.

Take me now, hold me tight 'til we fall asleep.
Call me yours, you are love & I'm falling deep.

We don't need forever as long as we remember.
We don't need 'together' when we've got December.
Ours to own.
Track Name: Tall Trees
Tall trees, the first day of school and I stood as tall as them.
All these years and I could barely touch their branches if I stretched.
Your voice as you carried me home from the car in a sleepy daze.

I'm sure you know but let me say, I couldn't be without you.
You're why I'm who I am today.

I could take notes, watch you all day and never be, never be, as amazing.

Grazed knees, tears spilling endlessly down into your lap.
Dark dreams, you kept them away with just a word and your hand.
Our house, filled with the warmth and the scents of the things you baked.
Our world was always whatever we made.

I'm sure you know but let me say, I couldn't be without you.
You're why I'm who I am today.

I could take notes, watch you all day and never be, never be, as amazing.

Through losses and heartbreak, changes and mistakes.
Roadtrips & birthdays. Sunburn & snowflakes.
I've been there with you.
We saw them all through.

I'm sure you know but let me say, I couldn't be without you.
You're why I'm who I am today.

I could take notes, watch you all day and never be, never be, as amazing.

Tall trees, the first day of school and I stood as tall as them.
All these years and I could barely touch their branches if I stretched.
Your voice as you carried me home from the car in a sleepy daze.
Track Name: Another Day
So many thoughts rushing me, this is not where I want to be.
I don't want to spend another day locked away like I did something wrong.
Listening to soft sad songs.
This is not where I belong.

But in my sleep, I dream & I'm gone.

Bright eyes, bright eyes, how does it feel?
Bright eyes, to know you're going down?
Bright eyes, bright eyes, did they pick you up?
Or did they blame you when you drowned?

I'm not sure what part of me keeps me back when I break free.
For a moment I was strong.
Back again on another day paying twice for my mistakes.
Every day seems so prolonged.

But in my sleep, I dream & I'm gone.

Bright eyes, bright eyes, how does it feel?
Bright eyes, to know you're going down?
Bright eyes, bright eyes, did they pick you up?
Or did they blame you when you drowned?

But if he sleeps, he'll dream and I'll be gone.

Bright eyes, bright eyes, how does it feel?
Bright eyes, to know you're going down?
Bright eyes, bright eyes, did they pick you up?
Or did they blame you when you drowned?
Track Name: Whispers
Long nights listening, barely breathing.
Hearing you, feeling you.
Hold me through, days were gone soon.
All we had was sound.

I can hear you, if only whispers.
While you're away it's more than I can bear.
All was silence, you pulled me from it.
I'll never fully understand.

Never felt alone knowing your home was mine to share.
I'd find you there.
Couldn't tell you what we'd gone through.
It changed me, it made me.

I can hear you, if only whispers.
While you're away it's more than I can bear.
All was silence, you pulled me from it.
I'll never fully understand.

Long nights listening, barely breathing.
I can hear you, if only whispers.
While you're away it's more than I can bear.
All was silence, you pulled me from it.
I'll never fully understand.
Track Name: Legacy
Faces in the surface like accusations made in silence.
Coldly omnipresent in frames of the past.
I know you, I've seen you a thousand time.
I've recalled your burning touches in my mind.

I remember your gaze as it drifted from my bare feet to my lips.
Never could manage to remove your grip.
I don't think you like the pain you caused.
I think it consumed you to the core.
And though you could've broken free, you never did.
And it was the end of me.

Push me back, again. Come on, try it.
Push me back, again. Come on, I dare you.

Every dark night when I'm alone I think of your hands and how they closed around my wrist.
Your iron clad kiss.
There's no resolution that I can own.
You stole away my only home, nowhere is safe.
There's nowhere to go that your legacy won't show.

Push me back, again. Come on, try it.
Push me back, again. Come on, I dare you.
Track Name: Cold Mourning
It was cold in the morning when you closed the door.
The bed was still warm from where you were before.
And I walked through each room thinking of you,
Of the days that we'd spend out in the rain
and how you kissed me then & everything changed.
In an empty car park.
Everything changed.

Hold on my darling, hold tight my darling.
Hold me, my darling. Tonight.

I remember it fresh like it was yesterday.
Oh, the day that we met.
The moment I saw you I knew, everyone knew.
That we'd grow old together and cherish each day.
That we'd promise forever and never be strayed.
Oh how, how it all changed.

Hold on my darling, hold tight my darling.
Hold me, my darling. Tonight.

They came to the door with that look in their eyes.
Those two men in their coats and me all alone inside.
You left me behind.
And the dreams were all shattered, our promises shelved.
You lost forever and me all alone in this world.
You called me your girl.

Hold on my darling, hold tight my darling.
Hold me, my darling. Tonight.

It was cold in the morning when you closed the door.
The bed was still warm from where you were before.
Track Name: Fledgling
Take your look, take it now, the road you found bespoken.
There's no need for higher ground when we all know we're broken.
Take the lost with the found, there's no place for your faith.
To the core, we are broken.

Hear the words you ignored, heed their call.

Take my peace, take my part because it's all I offer.
I'll give it all, I'll give it up, there's nothing left to lose.
I've seen the fall, I know the drop.
No fears can not confront me.
To the core, I am woken.

Hear the words you ignored, heed their call and take the fall.

Years, days, months all gone past with no-one.
Fledgling, we belong to no-one.

Hear the words you ignored, heed their call and take the fall.
Hear the words you ignored.
