Track Name: Come Back Here
I don't know why I come back here
I'd call it home if my head was there
The written word doesn't make it true
My one thing is falling through

Been gone a month out on that road
They tell me where's the place to go
Not once does any mention this
Unbeaten track of pure bliss

For good times we don't pack the car
For we don't need to travel far
No theatre it's on TV
Down the road at Jess and G's

Oh baby them hugs high water or hell come
Like we're always here and you're always welcome
A face to face a heart to heart
A hand to mouth back to the start
Where no such cities cried out for escape

How could I not want to stay when the sugar's just a knock away
It's love relation big blood stations
Reality's no obligation
When you're on holiday all night winters long
Yea we're on holiday all night winters long

My blood and hope and my bucket of lists
Know full well that I asked for this
I can live with grace from this lonesome place
That might always evade the answer
But I'll trust that it leads me to places that teach me how to know
Why I come back here
Track Name: Golden One
Asouplier
Se de tendre
Stay pure my friend
Till the cows aint coming home

Shine through our fears
With a blind view of our tears
Bright sunrise like a summer solstice
You come bursting through

I can see the sun in your eyes already
I can feel the love and the warmth so heavy
Aint a single day gonna sail unsteady
Wishing you weren't around

Gonna be a golden one

I could not believe what I could see
Little breaths taken from the same place as me
We've known you're worth the weight somehow
In gold our hearts would cease to tell
That you've only just come in and now
The world will all unfold itself
To be yours, to see its shores
To open doors that leave you longing for more

Welcome

I can see the sun in your eyes already
I can feel the love and the warmth so heavy
Aint a single day gonna sail unsteady
Wishing you weren't around
Track Name: Matters Of Magic
I was born freer than, this man I've become
Build it up and pour it on, thick enough to carry on
Fill my head, with nonsense
Taking off but nothing landing
The more I see the less I need to know

These moments of magic can be captured
Standing still never again
Cos these matters of magic are so fleeting

The more we think the less revealed our instincts are to take the wheel
The more we drink the less we feel the sinking of our old ideals
And I know you have moments too of inner calm for those precious few
But I'm worried through for those people who are flying by

These moments of magic can be captured
Standing still never again
Cos these matters of magic are so fleeting (see how long/grab a hold)

I wish for these moments of magic to learn to stay

Cos these moments of magic can be captured
Standing still never again
Cos these matters of magic are so fleeting
Track Name: Like This
Every day awakes with a huff
Every night departs it with a doubtful mind
If it stays like this the stuff that we knew will get left behind

Fading fire and the spark
Now it takes the sun just to see the dark
Through the cloudy dusty smoke and ruins
There's a child waiting to be saved

Never have been sure of less
How are we supposed to know
Never have been sure of less
I just know that we can't go on like this

So much more to do and be
Got this one here life to get to me
Through the shroud of rusty broken fool
There's a dial waiting to be spun

Black and white would sing the blues for gray
The colours of some time away
When the birds and the planes hold such freedom
I'm a smile away from some
But I'm a mother away from her young
And I just can't wait to step up off this bottom rung
I'm just a child waiting to be saved

Never have been sure of less
How are we supposed to know
Never have been sure of less
I just know that we can't go on like this

Lets play fun and games
Lets all run away
To an island off the coast of let it go
Lets play fun and games
Lets dream of the day
Where we lost the constant urge to heal and grow
Track Name: Broken Wing
Here we go around again
Deja hoodoo baby
Grin and bear the sound of when
Rage meets ruined lately
Pick me up just to cut me down
I play the fool so ably
I could come around again
You could lay me down to rest

I was just learning how to fly with the broken wing
You were lost and yearning for something to hold
I was just learning how to fly with the broken wing
Now it's cost this quiet thing and it's burning up inside baby

Marigold supplies within
To keep that lighthouse turning
Out at sea and running thin
But the call for more keeps churning
Id love to be at your beckoning
But I didn't ride the storms for this
I can see the river mouth
You build the dam
I'll bring the water

I was just learning how to fly with the broken wing
You were lost and yearning for something to hold
I was just learning how to fly with the broken wing
Now it's cost this quiet thing and it's burning up inside baby
