Track Name: English Roses
I'll take my jacket off
Only if we'll stay a while
Your mind was made up
Driving round to pass the time
All through my childhood
I walked these streets passed every day
For this place is changing
A shadow of what I would claim

I think about the gardens roamed
Amongst the English roses
there is stood is stood the place we own
Surrounded by the houses

They set it on fire
Don't look back we'll flee from this city
We'll fight our desire
Don't look back for fear that we'll turn to salt

And I hear my hearts cry
To my head my hands my feet
Speaks of this city
This feast I find my table seat
They'll find our absence
To empty chairs perverse our names
But this place is changing
A shadow of what I would claim

I think about the gardens roamed
Amongst the English roses
there is stood is stood the place we own
Surrounded by the houses

They set it on fire
Don't look back we'll flee from this city
We'll fight our desire
Don't look back for fear that we'll turn to salt
They set it on fire
Don't look back we'll flee from this city
We'll fight our desire
Don't look back for fear that we'll turn to salt
Track Name: This Time
Push my weight into the ground
I never thought I'd make it
Dust in my mouth I have found
I never thought I'd take it
On
On

We were thinking about this world we made together
Time will come back around
This time this time I'll say I love you
Calm my conscience it's overrun
I'll bear this measure
Time will come back around
This time this time I'll say I love you
I'll say I love you

Clear my thoughts so I can hear
I always thought I said it
Touch to know if you are near
You're further than you let it
On
On

We were thinking about this world we made together
Time will come back around
This time this time I'll say I love you
Calm my conscience it's overrun
I'll bear this measure
Time will come back around
This time this time I'll say I love you
I'll say I love you

We were thinking about this world we made together
Time will come back around
This time this time I'll say I love you
Calm my conscience it's overrun
I'll bear this measure
Time will come back around
This time this time I'll say I love you
I'll say I love you
Track Name: Hidden Ground
We walk to the river
And rinse the dirt from our feet
The path cuts through the
Trees which shield relief

We'll claim this hidden ground as our own
Yes we'll claim this hidden ground as our home.

We're never turning back to the place that we've come from
Sit by the riverside we don't care that the suns gone.

And all that you noted
Evades my eyes
The long for this river
Will fade with time

We'll claim this hidden ground as our own
Yes we'll claim this hidden ground as our home.

We're never turning back to the place that we've come from
Sit by the riverside we don't care that the suns gone.

We'll claim this hidden ground as our own
Yes we'll claim this hidden ground as our home.
We'll claim this hidden ground as our own
Yes we'll claim this hidden ground as our home.

We're never turning back to the place that we've come from
Sit by the riverside we don't care that the suns gone.
We're never turning back to the place that we've come from
Sit by the riverside we don't care that the suns gone.
Track Name: Heartbeat
All of these dreams that I have searched
lie over the mountain
but the sun on my skin
makes me want to stay

For my mind that absorbs the things that I've read
is confused when my heart won't align with my head

Summer comes kisses the fields
but this heart won't beat forever
Seasons pass with greater ease
but this heart won't beat forever

Held to the cord of my ambition
hemmed by the wayside
But this pull on my hand
begs me to be free

For my mind that absorbs the things that I've read
is confused when my heart won't align with my head

Summer comes kisses the fields
but this heart won't beat forever
Seasons pass with greater ease
but this heart won't beat forever

Heartbeat carries on
I'm looking for a way over my
Mountain clothed in sun
I'm hoping I won't run out of time

Summer comes kisses the fields
but this heart won't beat forever
Seasons pass with greater ease
but this heart won't beat forever
Track Name: The Fall
This citadel this heavy name
this stake to which I lay my claim
we're coming down we'll fall again
back to the old road

This is the life we've chosen
Now this space grows colder
This is the life we've chosen
Can't get away from the robes you're clothed in

You've said enough now to be safe
You've seen these lines form across your face
Clutch to youth for your namesake
Caught like a dreamer

This is the life we've chosen
Now this space grows colder
This is the life we've chosen

You'll fight the fall
Holding on for your dear life
Just feel the tension grow
That foreign toil
I wish I could cure the strife
Stop slipping here below

Appearing through my empty gaze
I see this form beyond the haze
Now you're eclipsed by this new day
born to a lover

This is the life we've chosen
Now this space grows colder
This is the life we've chosen

You'll fight the fall
Holding on for your dear life
Just feel the tension grow
That foreign toil
I wish I could cure the strife
Stop slipping here below
Track Name: These Trees
I'm overthrown
Longing for the doves which fled these trees
Just to return
This foreign home
move to douse the flames that plague this dream
I won't watch it burn

I'll fight before I fall
seek out the man I used to know
Stand fast amongst it all
grounded by this stone

I long to overthrow my fears
I'll stand and know my heart is clear

I'm overthrown
Longing for the doves which fled these trees
Just to return
This foreign home
move to douse the flames that plague this dream
I won't watch it burn

This sodden ground I'll crawl
Through mist plagued plains I will emerge
Ten fold repaid in all
Still grounded by this stone

I long to overthrow my fears
I'll stand and know my heart is clear

I'm overthrown
Longing for the doves which fled these trees
Just to return
This foreign home
move to douse the flames that plague this dream
I won't watch it burn

I will never leave your side

I long to overthrow my fears
I'll stand and know my heart is clear

I'm overthrown
Longing for the doves which fled these trees
Just to return
This foreign home
move to douse the flames that plague this dream
I won't watch it burn
Track Name: Piano Song
I'm coming before the
Silence that sees my figure drown
I'm waling beside the shore
You're all i have left once more

We will run
From the dust of which we've come
Just to return
This time forever we will know
We've stood before
All those scars which we once bore
But now we'll run
Until our hearts last beat is done
Track Name: Picture Of
Take my hand through everything
I've found the courage of my youth
To guide us to the shore
We won't hide from anything
This is the picture of our youth
To guide us to the shore

Running through the mire that coats this land
Just say you're here
Fighting for the words I'll understand
Just say you're here

Come towards the light dear
We'll find the colours of our dreams
discarded on the floor
I can't afford the fight dear
This is the picture of our dreams
discarded on the floor

Running through the mire that coats this land
Just say you're here
Fighting for the words I'll understand
Just say you're here

I'm waiting cause in time we'll go under
No need to take me there
I'm waiting cause in time we'll go under
No need to take me there

Running through the mire that coats this land
Just say you're here
Fighting for the words I'll understand
Just say you're here
Track Name: Only Words
It's calm in the water still
But I won't come to the depths to greet you
And now that I finally feel
I'll rise from the pit that will soon defeat you

It's hard not to live my life
Like it's only words
It's hard not to live my life
Like it's only words

My thoughts and I
became lost
In the city that sleeps
Bound to debt
there I lay
With my back to the wall

And now that I've come for you
this shoreline will call for the depths beneath it
My lungs filled with smoke ensue
A breath that will grasp my own fear to meet it

It's hard not to live my life
Like it's only words
It's hard not to live my life
Like it's only words

My thoughts and I
became lost
In the city that sleeps
Bound to debt
there I lay
With my back to the wall

We were holding back the tears
We were holding back the tears
For I know this life draws near
From the city we were swept to different shores

My thoughts and I
became lost
In the city that sleeps
Bound to debt
there I lay
With my back to the wall
Track Name: This I Know
This I know
For Bacchus we kissed
and we hid in our wistful youth
Now we've grown
With fruit here we bear
Our leaves the don't dare to wilt

Dark ropes climb this mast
That seldom will last
We were doomed from the start
Doomed from the start
We fell from this grace
Wrong course set to chase
We were doomed from the start

This I know
For Bacchus we kissed
and we hid in our wistful youth
Now we've grown
With fruit here we bear
Our leaves the don't dare to wilt

And though this harvest surpassed
the hopes held in hearts
The rain failed to fall
The rain failed to fall
Though we scorched the land
Our mistakes held in hand
We failed to fall

For Bacchus we kissed
and we hid in our wistful youth
With fruit here we bear
Our leaves the don't dare to wilt

This I know
For Bacchus we kissed
and we hid in our wistful youth
Now we've grown
With fruit here we bear
Our leaves the don't dare to wilt
