Track Name: Brightest Beginnings
If blankets are blessings
That hold back the sea
Then stay close and tell me
Wherever you will be

Until the clouds run and hide
And cower in fear
At the brightest beginnings
That we've both held so dear

And nothing so precious
Could ever pull me away
From the safety and sweetness
And all that you say

When you imagine the future
Yet more precious still
Are the hopes sleeping softly
On your windowsill

Until the clouds run and hide
And cower in fear
At the brightest beginnings
That we've both held so dear
Track Name: Holding Hands
I'm so jealous of you
I'm not proud of this feeling
And counting all you friends
I wonder who you're feeding

Holding hands

I'm so angry with you
It's such a base emotion
Imagine wrecking it all
Such misplaced devotion

Holding Hands

I need alcohol drinks
To get over seeing you
I have to calm myself down
Too excited, too long, too new

Holding hands
A long, long way from here
Track Name: Waiting
I'm not trying to make things hard for you
I just wish i knew the best things and the right things to say
To make all the hurt go away

And i'm waiting
I'm still waiting

Lines on my face get deeper each year
And after everything what are we still doing here
It's never seemed any less clear

And i'm waiting
I'm still waiting

For all your...
Track Name: Breathe
And look
I know just how you feel
Wait, please don't say
Anything today
To keep everyone safe

Just the slightest look
Gives it all away
The blankest stakes
Keep me safe

Stay close by
Watch me fly
Breathe anew
It's all because of you
Track Name: Blue Skies
If I tell myself
It's OK
If i take it all
Just day by day

This coat of pain
Might fade away
Don't know how
To live this way

To watch your life before my eyes
And see your grey turn into blue skies
You'll never know how much i tried
For you, for me, for all we let slide

And you're so in love
And i can see
You're happy now
That's how it should be

To watch your life before my eyes
And see your grey turn into blue skies
You'll never know how much i tried
For you, for me, for all we let slide
Track Name: Cellophane Words
If there's a mountain of thoughts each day to climb through
So cold and confusing I'd dress up for you
And cover the silence in buttons and dials
While the delicate leaves on your tree of denial
Disguise all the meanings behind your cellophane words
Wrapped in a blanket of hope I can't preserve
As the promises empty out of your lungs
And into the insides of our eardrums

And I'll stay

Well you know there's a line that's been drawn in the sand
And the tide's coming in though we've got nothing planned
And I'd run for my life if i just knew the way
But tomorrow just tells me to trust yesterday

And I'll stay

And all your cellophane words hide near the ceiling
The softest amber glow lights what you're feeling inside

If I'm not content then just take my hands
The carpet is worn but my heart understands
And the tangle that binds us could build a whole city
From the grass on the ground to the skyline so pretty

And I'll stay
Track Name: When You Were Mine
On a night like this
Nothing else existed
Only you and me
And what we wanted to be

Everything else can just fade from view
I knew you so well
And at least for some little while
I was yours and you were mine

Wrapped up in the sound
Words are on the ground
I know we will stop
I'll breathe but just not
With feeling that anything could happen

Everything else can just fade from view
I knew you so well
And at least for some little while
I was yours and you were mine
Track Name: It's Not Simple
Today I'm wondering how you are
The distance seems so far
But you're just steps away
Today a million things I've said
And your words in my head
Can't get me through

I know there's no point talking more
We both know the score
It's all just circles now
Round, and all around again
If you were just my friend
This would be easier

It's not simple at all in my head
It's not simple

Hiding underneath the skin
The surface is so thin
It could be broken
With all with of just one word
And everything I've heard
About you

It's not simple at all in my head
It's not simple

Foolish old girl
In your arms you held the world but
You didn't know what to do with it

If it all turns out this way
I will just stay
And get on with things
Like Ive done for so long
I know it seems so wrong
I should just get a life

It's not simple at all in my head
It's not simple
