Track Name: (If You Follow) We Just Might Get Near
We've outgrown this place
The changes we have made
Shouldn't walk away alone
Headed for the great unknown

Once we make it through
Chance to start a new
Couldn't waste another year
Waiting for the coast to clear

All the money in the world can not buy the
Happiness that we deserve
If we don't gamble on ourselves

If you follow maybe we just might get near

Home is built on sand
With Shaky legs and hands
Ready for your cold feet
Not giving up your seat

Can't see a return
Bridges we have burned
Leaving us with no way back
Don't expect a welcome mat
Track Name: Seachange
Kinda like the feeling of getting lost
Through cobblestone streets and aged walls
The lady on the corner she knows them all

Voices all around me I can’t understand
Wishing I was part of their daily plans
Earning my keep, working on the land

In this town we got all day
Passing our time in this small café
Sit and watch the world away

At night the streets ain’t still
Drinking with strangers, eating up your fill
Follow the lights right over the hill

I want the simple life
Looking out my window
Feel a different light
We’ll both be satisfied
I don’t want to go
Track Name: Them Fighting Words
Nobody wants all the crumbs left on the floor
Shut the back of your head screaming out for more

In spite of all reservations, we returned
When its heart vs mind no one ever learns

I’m gonna turn my back
You’ll be back to front
Wearing my shirts inside out
If this is what ya want
You got it

I’m indecisive
I’m gonna make you mad
I’m gonna serve you up
Them Fighting words

Every day is a battle so it seems
What is small to you is big for me

Took a chance and I came off second best
A bruised ego and a part missing off my chest

Read aloud and you punctuate
Fighting words they are way too late
Made up for you

Got a feeling of déjà vu
On a spiral back to you
We’re never through

I know you’re angry but you mean well
Track Name: In A Minute
I don’t want to hear about the downside
Set the scene for a long ride
I will go with you anywhere

You’re not alone
Though you may think that I’m wrong
Take a cue from the old folks
They’ve been doing this everyday

What comes in a minute
Goes in a second I know
You better believe it
Crossing the meaning
With eyes closed

Sleep and get a decent nights rest
Waking up in your sundress
There’s nothing else to do anyway

Scraping your knees
Running circles when you leave
Don’t know if it’s all on me
No better time for you to stay
Track Name: Overnight
Its alright, though baby's blue
I'll stay around for a week or two
Alright Yes its alright

Your letter's filled with stories of
Drunken nights and long distance calls
Alright Yes its alright

I was told long ago
You'll pack your bags and no one will know
Alright Yes its alright

You're knee deep high in the shallow end
Don't mistake it for the safer bet
Alright Yes its alright

Since you've gone astray
Its so funny how we get in the way
All those years we cannot be the same
And it's all true

First in line, last to know
Sticks and stones will break my bones
Dry your eyes and carry me home

Go back to where you belong
Even just for a day
All the hurt has been forgotten, stay
Track Name: Nothing At All
Unaffected by the night
You remind me of something
Passing strangers in mid flight
Go away please don’t come by

Sometimes I feel the push
Everybody is staring
On tender hooks we hang
Only no one is caring
Misty mind

Lessons learnt we will forget
Spill the wine and its over
Only doubt leads to regret
I came with nothing remember

I need you
Some of them they feel nothing at all
I need you
Some of them they feel nothing at all
Track Name: Come What May
To be born to be brave
To be wiser than your age
Get In line, Get on board
Get a feel for the road

If the picture don’t fit
They’re all shooting from the hip
It’s the meaning that’s been blurred
If you listened, If you heard

There you go
Come what may
Better to have lived
Than to see it all fade away

Happiness in a jar
A laundry list will get you far
Tick it of as you play
Adding more every other day

It’s the search for the reason I’m in now
A case of believing it somehow
I know I’ll be seeing you again
Track Name: Restless
Used to rule the world with an iron fist
I ain’t gonna let go
Tempted by the wrongs that I can’t resist
I ain’t gonna let go

Tonight the world will sleep
And we’ll be dreaming of
A peaceful, easy load

Pitying the man who has lost his will
I aint gonna let go
Envying those who chase the thrill
I aint gonna let go

Tonight the night the world will sleep
And we’ll be dreaming of
A peaceful, easy load

I’m a tornado who’s lost his way
I ain’t gonna let go
Caution to the wind and a gentle sway
I ain’t gonna let go

Your lions roar too quiet and meek
I ain’t gonna let go
This is how it ends, be the last to speak
I ain’t gonna let go
Track Name: Arms Reach
I'll see it when I believe it
I'll reach it when I can feel it

All laid on the table
Is where I’ll be
Are you willing and able
To start our deal

I could never touch you
I wouldn't if I can
What matters in this world
Is in your hands

On tender hooks it's hanging
Flowing free
Close enough to smell you
An arms reach

Been there a million times
And still you’re lost
Still you crawl
It only plays out that way
If you go
If you go
Track Name: She Vs Him
Confirmation you were fine
When I read your words online
Reasons I thought you won’t proclaim

Saw your friends, they politely wave
Half a smile it’s the mourning stage
Too early too soon to re-engage

I’ll float like a bottle on the shore
With a message you won’t know
Its all buried now

Built a life, made a home
Lived together but lived alone
What we could have reaped, we could not sow

In denial but we knew
Maybe I was afraid of you
Either way, we let the years slip through

We’re left with stories of losing face
Convinced that what we lost can be saved

I miss you
Track Name: Nobody Has To Know
Is it what you expect?
A little off to the left?
So cold it can melt
Seeing we are so patient
Give me one more day

When I first met you
Like a bolt out of the blue
This crooked frame just wont do
Here for your protection
Shield you from the rain

Do my words sense?
Carry on in the present tense
High hopes, no demands
We are here with nothing
Richer than we think

Nobody has to know
Nobody has to say it so
Nobody has to know
