So, Stars... 03:33
Watch the stars falling out of the night You said When they are gone We should go too It felt so poetic I thought you were so romantic Now I have to let you go I can’t keep you with me, so… There’s something I can’t resist In you We’re sad and alone A knot in my soul I thought I could stay with you Keep your head above the water Now I have to let you go I can’t keep you with me, so… You say I was wrong to love you Even now I’m too scared not to I never thought I would leave You, but When I held a light You closed your eyes Falling on a bed of thorns You are taking me down with you Now you have to let me go If you loved me, you would say… so

A moment too soon Your eyes look away You’re making small talk A little too hastily When did you ever Need so many words to tell me about your day You’re choosing your clothes So carefully Lips brush my face So fleetingly When you’re standing close You’re not quite as close as you used to be There’s something unwarm There’s something unright Time washed the colour out and Left us living in shadows… and silhouettes We don’t do, We don’t dare We lie awake just Waiting not to be where… I don’t think you notice These things you do You don’t see me watch When I look at you You’re doing so well I haven’t the heart to say... me too

True Face 03:31
When I woke up you were sleeping And I thought it would be neat If I could fix you breakfast And surprise you with a treat But I’ve been here twenty minutes And I don’t know where to start I can’t see where you keep stuff I can’t tell your things apart And I’m laughing at myself Being useless feeling pleased I just want to make you smile When you wake up and see me Cos this was our first night Bit of a surprise night I asked and you said right Maybe we could try it And we came to your place A home and a warm space You let me see your true face And took me to your place Early light shines through your window Room is warmed by quiet dawn Your face peaking round the doorway Your smile breaking through a yawn Everything alright? you ask me What is it you’re looking for? I was gonna bring you something Couldn’t find your cupboard door Come here, you said. Your arm around me Held me while you got some cups Made some coffee, got the corn flakes Sat me down and kissed my lips And this is our first day A kind of a test day But I’m going to say I’m having the best day With you in your place A home and a warm space A beautiful true face Together in your place

You To Call 04:06
Had my say Now it’s a war Had a bed Now it’s the floor Waiting quite a while for you to call Hit the target There’s a score Hit the ceiling There’s the door Waiting quite a while for you to call Stirred it up this time, that’s for sure One day we’ll find out Just what it is I’m looking for Chorus If we had that time again Would I stand by what I said Or would I take it back? Tell the truth it’s what I meant And if I hadn’t spoke Think I would have broken then In a corner ‘gainst the wall See my bags Out in the hall Waiting quite a while for you to call Stirred it up this time, that’s for sure One day we’ll find out Just what it is I’m hoping for Chorus If we had that time again Would I stand by what I said Or would I take it back? Tell the truth it’s what I meant And if I hadn’t spoke Think I would have broken then I would be the first to move But this time could it be you? Waiting quite a while for you to call Stirred it up this time, that’s for sure One day we’ll find out Just what it is I’m fighting for Chorus If we had that time again Would I stand by what I said Or would I take it back? Tell the truth it’s what I meant And if I hadn’t spoke Think I would have broken then Instrumental And if I hadn’t spoke Think I would have broken then

The Well 05:16
You just said “No”, I knew what it meant We’ve both been aching to end the pretence That soulless word, out in plain sight, Cut us adrift. My heart sank right To the bottom of the well. Just want you gone don’t Drag it out so long Soonest ended, soonest mended How long we have wanted this day to come So we should feel better now that it’s done Fallen so far from the happy height Of our love. My heart sank right To the bottom of the well. It’s too far to see the day I can’t reach out all that way I hate myself
