Track Name: Ain't It Just A Beautiful Day
Waves are lapping on the shore
All this laid on just for us
Where’s the point of no return
I wonder if we’ll ever learn

Ain’t it just a beautiful day

Walking through an open door
Couldn’t ever ask for more
I know that in my hour of need
You will be there for me

Ain’t it just a beautiful day

Waves are lapping on the shore
How could anybody ask for more
Forget all of your mistakes
You can’t take em with you anyway
Waves are lapping on the shore
How could anybody ask for more
Forget all of your mistakes

Ain’t it just a beautiful day
Track Name: We Belong Together
So tell me the reason that
We found ourselves in this hopeless place together
And tell me the reason that
The sun and moon are the same size in the sky

Fade in the morning shade from the sun
Maybe one day yeah I’m holding on

Can you feel it, can you feel it
Can you see that
We belong together, we belong together
Know you feel it ,know you feel it
Can you see that
We belong together, we belong together

And right when I realised
That maybe I’ve been thinking bout forever
I saw something in your eyes
Reflecting back off of a speed limit sign

Fade in the morning shade from the sun
Maybe one day yeah I’m holding on

Can you feel it, can you feel it
Can you see that
We belong together, we belong together
Know you feel it ,know you feel it
Can you see that
We belong together, we belong together

I can see it very clear sometimes
But it’s gone in the blink of an eye
And half awake I can hallucinate it right
But it’s all white noise in the low light

Can you feel it, can you feel it
Can you see that
We belong together, we belong together
Know you feel it ,know you feel it
Can you see that
We belong together, we belong together
Track Name: Those Days
And they say a storm is coming in
Yeah the likes of which we’ve never seen
So far fetched and so within our reach to look away

And as I stood there silent in the rain
Faking disbelief for nobody
That’s when I knew that you were everything, Everything.

Up in the sky or low beneath the waves
In the missed connections in my brain
In all the words I wish that I could change or unsay

And the truth is I could see it all
I knew we were on a collision course
The night I made a promise to hold on or walk away

And in this orbit I attempt to reach
Trying to get some distant clarity
Going blind so I can see something that’s still the same

Who am I to even start to judge
A boy who crumbled at your slightest touch
New York has changed so very much
Since those days
Track Name: Can't You Tell
I keep a light in the window
Making sure that it’s on
So you know that I’m still here
So you know

You only did what had to
I don’t blame you for nothin
I still feel like shit without you
So you know

You’re tellin me that you met somebody
Say it’s easier than it’s ever been
I’m telling you I’m happy youre happy
Cant you tell that I don’t mean it
Cause it’s hard to hear that you found somebody
When i’ve holding on to get you back again
I’m telling you I’m happy you’re happy
Can’t you tell that I don’t mean it

Now I sleep in the day cause
At night it don’t seem to come
And time it dont seem to matter
Anymore

I chase the worst of the memories
Trying to piece it together
Till I just I can’t take it
Anymore

You’re tellin me that you met somebody
You say it’s easier than it’s ever been
I’m telling you I’m happy you’re happy
Can’t you tell that I don’t mean it
Cause it’s hard to hear that you found somebody
When i’ve holding on to get you back again
I’m telling you I’m happy you’re happy
Can’t you tell that I don’t mean it

Happy you’re happy...

You’re tellin me that you met somebody
You say it’s easier than it’s ever been
I’m telling you I’m happy you’re happy
Can’t you tell that I don’t mean it
Cause it’s hard to hear that you found somebody
When i’ve holding on to get you back again
I’m telling you I’m happy you’re happy
Can’t you tell that I don’t mean it
Track Name: I Need You
Suffer when you smile
Got me reeling there for a little while
Hearts a paperweight
Cause I know you’re so far away

But I need you
Yeah I need you
Yeah I need you
Yeah I need you and nobody else will do
Cause I need you

Days just passing through
Couldn’t half forget if I wanted to
When you shine your light
Making colours from black and white

And I need you
Yeah I need you
Yeah I need you
Yeah I need you and nobody else will do
Cause I need you

Sunlight falling in not a cloud in the sky
I'm counting little white lies
Silent signals take it one thing at a time
I'm losing my mind
Cause I need you
Track Name: Silence
Heard you in the distance
A storm on the scope
Almighty thunder
Coming for me I hoped
Rolled over the horizon
Swept up it all
Batten the hatches
And teardrops and branches

But I hear the silence now
Right to my core
I never heard silence
Like this before
But I hear the silence now
From wall to wall
I never heard silence
Like this before

Very tall buildings
Lights at high speed
Trails on the taxis
Heading all around me
Up on the rooftop
Wasteland of a view
The pierce of the sirens
Can you hear them too?

Or is it just silence now
Cause I tell you what
It feels like this silence
Is all that I’ve got
Yeah I won the battle
But I lost the war
I never heard silence
Like this before

The plane flies so high
Can't be seen or heard
Looking down on the hills
Looking down on all the birds

But I hear the silence now
Right in my core
I never heard silence
Like this before
Yeah I hear the silence now
From wall to wall
I never heard silence
Like this before
Track Name: Our Time Will Come Again
I thought that it would be nothing
I thought that it was the end
Just trying to imagine
How it was before it all began

There’s nothing to be afraid of
If this echo fades away
It’s all happening right now
Coming back going round again

So when we touch is it real
Am I feeling what I feel
Right now
So when we touch is it real
Am I feeling what I feel
Right now

Cause I would wait
Forever
If you told me that our time will come again
Yeah I would wait
Forever
If there’s half a chance our time will come again

Silhouettes on the horizon
Faces I can’t seem to place
Seems impossible now I
Thought i’d never ssee yours again

Can we start again?

Cause I would wait
Forever
If you told me that our time will come again
Yeah I would wait
Forever
If there’s half a chance our time will come again
Track Name: 20/20
All of the reasons I didn’t wanna see
Like a range mountains how did they hide from me
What is it they say?
The forest for the trees
Well now they’re 20/20

All of the fault lines, the ground beneath her feet
All of the lost time, the sun dives in the sea
all the warning signs I couldn’t bring myself to read
It’s all 20/20


Every raindrop threatening to fall
So many rainclouds obscuring the sun
Somewhere in my heart did I always know, did I always know

All of the last times I didn’t quite believe
Was I out of my mind or walking in my sleep
Hidden in plain sight but now it’s out of reach
It’s all 20/20
Track Name: So Easy To Love You
Looking out over the river
In grainy black and white
It looks the same every second
It’s different all the time

I don't hear a word you're saying
But I know what you mean
Secrets for safekeeping always
Washing out to see

Everything
Is so hard faught
I can’t believe this thing I got

It's so damn easy to love you
It's just so easy to do
Not sure I could stop now
If I wanted to
It's so damn easy to love you
It's just so easy to do
Not sure I could stop now
If I wanted If I wanted
If I needed to

All the flashes on the water
Never twice the same
Tell me do you have an answer
Or at least someone to blame

When everything
Is run aground
I can’t believe this thing I found

It's so damn easy to love you
It's just so easy to do
Not sure I could stop now
If I wanted to
It's so damn easy to love you
It's just so easy to do
Not sure I could stop now
If I wanted If I wanted
If I needed to

Sinking like a stone
To the bottom of
I don't even know
I don't even know
I don't even know

It's so damn easy to love you
It's just so easy to do
Not sure I could stop now
If I wanted If I wanted
If I needed to
Track Name: Falling In
To the fever to the end
To the breathless blow away the air

Can we ever make it back
To places we’ve never been

To the fever to the king
To the thoughts I never have
No

Breathing in time
With the ocean
Coming around again
Can’t believe i’m
Really falling in
Track Name: Love You More
And I love you and you’ve gotta take the blame
And I love it when you call my name
Love the things that you don’t like about yourself
Cause if they weren’t true then you’d be someone else

And I love travelling with you by my side
Or doing nothing staying home on Friday nights
And I love the way you never suffer fools
Even sometimes when I am one of them to

On a scale of one to ten love
1s I don’t know and 10‘s sosure
If you said that you loved me a million
Then I’d still love you more

I love the way you get me everytime
I love it when you put your hand in mine
I even love the way my words just disappear
When they are not the ones you want to hear

On a scale of one to ten love
1s I don’t know and 10 is sure
If you said that you loved me a million
Then I’d still love you more
Yeah you know I’d love you more

And I loved you for a while yeah I rehearsed
But I love that I still said it first
And I love the way you said it back
Don’t wanna think about how you could’ve not done that

On a scale of one to ten love
1s I don’t know and 10 is sure
If you said that you loved me a million
Then I’d still love you more
Yeah you know I’d love you more
Yeah I’m bit and there’s no cure
