Track Name: Yesteryear
Verse One
Take me back to yesteryear
I want to figure out my dear
All those things we boxed into nothing.
When the seasons start to sketch, bruises on my fingertips
I’ll know that all this time passed for something.

Build Up Chorus
Oh help me if you can
I’m walking on lonely land
I really want to know where I stand.
Oh help me if you please
My bones are tired from sailing streams
I’ve been sailing ‘round for hours.
There you go, when you’re the only thing I know.

Chorus
Only time will tell if it’s going to be, going to be
All those things that you said were ours
I did not see this coming my way darling,
Now it seems, so far gone.

Verse Two
Timing of the little things
To make sense of what might have been
When all of this just seems so peculiar.
When the morning light appears
Exposing all our hidden fears,
All of this will seem too familiar.

Build Up Chorus
Oh tell me if you know
Do I stay or do I go?
Can I make it on my own?
Oh tell me if you please,
My bones are tired from sailing streams
I’ve been sailing ‘round for hours.
There you go, when you’re the only love I know.

Chorus
Only time will tell if it’s going to be, going to be
All those things that you said were ours
I did not see this coming my way darling,
Now it seems, so far gone.

Bridge
Is anybody out there?
I know you care...
Is anybody out there?
I know it’s you, I still hear you.

Chorus x2
Only time will tell if it’s going to be, going to be
All those things that you said were ours
I did not see this coming my way darling,
Now it seems, so far gone.
Track Name: Lost
Verse One
I’ll detach the seems of broken tales, miseries and guilty dreams,
Empty these pockets of remorse, so I can stop.
If remorse means that i’m vulnerable
From all the things I thought i could handle,
I’ll use those stones to build a forte
To sail off, for I can’t stop.

Build Up Chorus
Going off like a cannon
It’s breaking my back, turning red.
These souvenirs of self-destruct
Are burning up in my head.

Chorus
I can’t wait to be alone with you.
I can’t wait to be alone with you.
Everywhere I go, it’s hurting me know,
It’s not the right thing to do.

Verse Two
Prepare a cup of coffee
For another night of sleepless times,
So I can blame the caffeine,
For giving me time to think.
A toast to you for being so high above it all,
Your sombre tune, your woeful air,
I’ve given in so I can’t care.


Build Up Chorus
Going off like a cannon
It’s breaking my back, turning red.
These souvenirs of self-destruct
Are burning up in my head.

Chorus
I can’t wait to be alone with you.
I can’t wait to be alone with you.
Everywhere I go, it’s hurting me know,
It’s not the right thing to do.

Bridge/Outro
It’s not the right thing to do...
It’s not the right thing to do.
It’s not the right thing to do...
It’s not the right thing to do.
Track Name: Thieves & Spies
Verse One
I want to question all the things,
All of the things that make us bleed.
While my body softly sleeps
The thieves and spies, they wait for me.

Inside your room are memories of dust
Weaving tales through the blood,
Of all the love you have lost
As the thieves, they guide me through,
To take back what’s not meant for you.

Chorus
I fear my love, I fear for you.
There’s nothing, no nothing I can do.
Fear my love, I fear for you.
No there’s nothing, no nothing I can do.

Verse Two
I’ll sail away to a pastures new,
To find an idleness covered by the bones of the moon.
As these bones they dissipate,
Into something this home cannot escape.

I’ll conjure the mess in the crux of my soul
To make sense of the new and fight war with the old.
The more I see, the less I know
For what you see is what I don’t.

Chorus
I fear my love, I fear for you.
There’s nothing, no nothing I can do.
Fear my love, I fear for you.
No there’s nothing, no nothing I can do.

Bridge
So I’ll fight through all these broken strings and tethers
And I promise my love i’ll try to forget it.
Darling, if I pull through for you, will you pull through for me?
I guess my love, we did not choose to carefully.

Chorus
I fear my love, I fear for you.
There’s nothing, no nothing I can do.
Fear my love, I fear for you.
No there’s nothing, no nothing I can do
No there’s nothing, no nothing I can do
No there’s nothing, no nothing I can do
No there’s nothing, no nothing I can do.
Track Name: Sandman
Verse One
I thought I heard you talk to me last night
Maybe it was all in my mind.
I painted no warning, no promises signed,
Led towards you from the greatest of heights.

Build Up Chorus
The Sandman, he tried to beg me wake
I had a date with the devil
My biggest mistake.
If mercy so hollow is all that I have
No man could carry me,
I’m stuck to this bed.

Chorus
All I want is nothing more
Than what you gave or what you sold,
Blame me for a love so cold.
All I need is what there is
And all there is, is what we missed,
Blame me for a love so cold
Blame you for a love so cold.

Verse Two
Spoke to a stillness colored by night,
Gave it a talking to, to rid my pride
If there’s nothing to say for,
Nothing to show,
I swear to be better, I swear to let go.

Build Up Chorus
The Sandman, he tried to salvage my blame
I could not forget it, my love could not save
And if mercy so hollow is all that I have
Please momma carry me, I’m over my head.

Chorus
All I want is nothing that more
Than what you gave or what you sold
Blame me for a love so cold.
All I need is what there is
And all there is, is what we missed.
Blame me for a love so cold,
Blame you for a love so old.


Bridge
Don’t you know how much I love you darling?
Don’t you know how much I care?
I did not mean to bother you lover,
But know I still want you here.

Don’t you know how much I love you darling?
Don’t you know how much I care?
I did not mean to bother you lover,
But know I still want you here.

Chorus
All I want is nothing more
Than what you gave or what you sold
Blame me for a love so cold.
All I want is nothing more
Than what you gave or what you sold
Blame me for a love so cold.
All I need is what there is
And all there is, is what we missed
Blame me for a love so cold,
Blame you for a love so old.
Track Name: Lonely Love
Verse One
I did not want to know at all,
I was hollow.
Thought that I could do it all,
On my lonesome.
Then you chose to come around
And give me a second chance.

If you came into my life for a lesson
Let me tell you what love,
You’re a blessing.
If you could just stay around,
I’ll give you a second chance.

Chorus
We ain’t the lonely loves
We are the lucky ones,
Who will be again
When we let go of what could have been.

Verse Two
I had no place to put my faith,
I was only,
Second guessing all the things,
You barely told me
Each time there was a start to a mend
It was always you again.

If there’s something that we’ve both been missing
Let me tell you what love, if you listen,
If you could just stay around
I’ll give you a second chance.

Chorus
We ain’t the lonely loves
We are the lucky ones,
Who will be again
When we let go of what could have been.

Bridge
I need a saviour
To come and rescue me,
For when I’m lonely and I am on my knees
I did not mean to let to go so easy,
But it’s all I know now.
It’s still all I know.

Chorus
We ain’t the lonely loves
We are the lucky ones,
Who will be again
When we let go of what could have been.

We ain’t the lonely loves
We are the lucky ones,
Who will be again
When we let go of what could have been.
Track Name: Better Now (Live)
Verse One
I did not see this from the start
A little piece of science for my heart.

Build Up Chorus
Little did I know back then,
That we could be more than friends.
I didn’t know, I didn’t know, I didn’t know.
Even after all this time,
Spaces that I left behind
I let it go, I let it go, I let it go.

Chorus
You make me want to oh la na, oh na lala, looh na
Oh nah nah, oh nah nah, oh la

We belong together now.
You can make it all better now.

Verse Two
Looking at the things we leave behind,
To make room for the things we have to find.

Build Up Chorus
If I knew that such a face
Would find a way to my embrace
I would have known, I would have known,
I would have known.
Thank god He brought you back to me,
To salvage my insanity,
I’ll say amen, I’ll try again,
I’ll try again.

Chorus
You make me want to oh la na, oh na lala, looh na
Oh nah nah, oh nah nah, oh la

We belong forever now.
It can all feel better now.

Bridge
And I love you,
Even when you’re cold and tired and teary.
For I want you,
Even when your eyes are getting weary.
If you love me so, tell me now,
Say it so, don’t let it go.
If you love me so, tell me now,
Say it so, don’t let it go.

Chorus
You make me want to oh la na, oh na lala, looh na
Oh nah nah, oh nah nah, oh la
Oh nah nah, oh nah nah, oh la
Oh nah nah, oh nah nah, oh la

We belong together now.
You can make it all better now.
