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

Golden One 04:21
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

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

Like This 05:37
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

Broken Wing 06:55
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
