Track Name: Moved On
I wasn't lying
When I said that I loved you
But I can't speak for time when
Time won't wait for you
I said that I'd miss you
You went to the other
Side of the world and
I guess that I waited far too long

Too long...

Now there is an ocean
Of difference between us
But I always liked to
Look at the interests
Just people together
Love at it's simplest
But I lost desire
I guess that I grew up and moved on

Moved on...
Track Name: Riding A Dead Horse
When you work do you work the hours
Or do you work the job?
Riding a dead horse to my grave
Worse things I can think of

When you walk do you walk with purpose
Or just to catch the day?
I don't mind having no place to be
But I'd like some company

I exaggerate the negatives
But that's just the way it feels
I could learn to get perspective
But it's just too fucking big
Track Name: Another Year
Don't ask me why
I cannot say
I've heard so many answers
So many questions remain

I'm not in love
I long to be
But there are so many people
So little community

Take another year
Now how shall we celebrate?
I don't need a thing
All I want is someone

I have to share
This open bottle
But good friends are hard to find
And I won't drink on my own

Take another year
Now how shall we celebrate?
I don't need a thing
All I want is someone

I have to share
This open bottle
But good friends are hard to find
Good friends are hard to find
Good friends are hard to find
And I won't drink on my own

Take another year
Now how shall we celebrate?
I don't need a thing
All I want is someone
Track Name: Change The Sheets
I change the sheets just to forget
All the ones the ones who slept here
You are not the only one you are not the
You are not the only one

I'd change the locks if I could
And keep this house all to myself but
I am not the only one I am not the
I am not the only one

Oh whatever happened to the day?
I try to sing but I am disengaged
There is a story behind every face
But I don't care to know you at all

I am in love with a shadow
But that is all. I can't look you in the eye
You are just another one of my desires
You are just another one

So meet me on the corner
Just one last time. Smoke and laughter
Freedom is the only thing that I can see
And maybe I'm just reaching out for you
So you'll reach out for me

Oh whatever happened to the day?
I try to sing but I am disengaged
There is a story behind every face
But I don't care to know you at all
Track Name: Don't Exist
It would be so nice to lay down
With you in your bed in the day time
But you don't exist at all
Don't exist at all

In my dreams I get by
Waiting for a change
What I don't realise is I'm changing all the time
My hair is growing brittle and my skin is not so tight

It would be so nice to lay down
Without a thought of tomorrow
Like I don't exist at all
Don't exist at all
Track Name: Look
Mirrors in the sea
Sky is it falling?
It's the way you look
It's the way you look

Roses in the weeds
Potent memories
It's the way you look
It's the way you look

Was it meant to be?
Am I incomplete?
It's the way you look
It's the way you look

Inspiration dry
Sweaty palms and thighs
It's the way you look
It's the way you look that'll change what you see
Track Name: Radio
The radio doesn't work no more
I turn it on. The frequency is lost
I'm feeling like I'm in that coastal town again
Maybe I'll just put myself onto a train

You thought I'd gone but I'll
Never be done with you
Just play it over
Let's pretend I'm someone new

The television keeps tuning out
It's for the best. I'll get my notebook out
It's been so long since I told the truth
And now I don't care what that might mean to you

You thought I'd gone but I'll
Never be done with you
Just play it over
Let's pretend I'm someone new

You thought I'd gone but I'll
Never be done with you
Just play it over
Let's pretend I'm someone new
You thought I'd gone but I'll
Never be done with you
Just turn me over
Lets pretend I'm someone new
Track Name: Words That Seem To Slip Away
Sometimes you just have to let the
Paper tear apart
People come and then they leave
But that's ok. There's more to life than you or me

Words that seem so out of reach
Will I sing them tomorrow?
Should I try? Should I even bother?
Should I just go to sleep?

Words that seem to slip away
Well let them fade
