Track Name: The Moon For The Sun
the moon for the sun
beach bums for an english sea
the wait for a month
for living out every beat
you got me on your side
I don't know how you do it
every ambulance ride /
always on my mind
oh what you do to me
under the surf
I think we lost the boat above
l'archive du coeur
turn it off or turn it up
Track Name: Found In Honey
following the bees
running from the wolves
counting every heartbeat
guessing every move
she is all I need now
never had a plan
found her in honey
only lovers understand
we took some time to leave our books behind
can't ever take / get enough when you're falling in love
I won't compose a half smile
going to leave this school in style
carried on the thames tide
going to leave this school behind
Track Name: Point / Pottery St.
walking out of the picture
playing our losing hands
you are the point I revolve around
walking out of the picture
past portraits and plans
you are the point I revolve around


draining all the thames
drowning the kilns out
pouring down like sliver
drying up gold in drought
Track Name: 1st to Dream
walk with me to waste the time
we'll never learn to say goodbye
we'll never turn to history
take my name we'll jump the train to leave
still bound for glory
still lighting out for the streets
wake up in another life
halfway to the end of the night
my friends they pick me up
drag me on and they bring me luck
we've come up together and we're never coming down
we'll meet again far from the crowds
with our heads in the clouds
and with blind belief
in all the words that we heard
that we learned to read
still bound for glory
still lighting out for the streets
Track Name: Falling In 2
please don't think I'm easy
I need sunshine I need snow
another shadow on the ceiling
just wrap me up and I'll follow
tonight you've got me falling in 2
for you and you
please don't think it over
or look for guidance from above
leave the ghost stood at your shoulder behind
we're one and one and one
tonight you've got me falling in 2
(got me falling in 2)
(got me falling for you)
Track Name: Salt Edge
our ghosts and ghosts to be
stretched out on the beach
from coast to coast
the sea washes our bodies clean
bed the floor close and bind
stripped down from today
with peacetime promises signed
to face the light and face the shade
you face the light I face the shade
under the moon over the waves
where days taste sweet as nights
where our friends dry us from the rain
where waste land meets waste sky
where anywhere is home again
(you face the light)
fill your head clear your mind
send our sons away
(I face the shade)
the sea's a river wide
under the moon over the waves
you face the light
wild, cross the wild on our desire
Track Name: Three Lives
a time frame
a country song
a heartache
a life longing for
a run through under the lights
too soon today and too late tonight
Track Name: Started Something
if we started something
do you think they'd understand
would we say it's nothing
would we say we're only friends
(if we started something)
if we started something
do you think they'd ask us why
we had to fall so hard
why we couldn't compromise
(if we started something)
we'll wait until they're gone before we say goodbye
(if we started something)
we'll wait til we're alone before we say goodnight
no timing is perfect
and it's more than I deserve
that you'd love me through my faults
if I risked all that we've got
still my heart beats faster
and there's nothing more I could ask for
there's a life time to go
guess we'll wait through sun, rain and snow
if we started something
Track Name: Half A Story / Summer In Spring
caught out caught between you now until then
in coward's comfort sheltered with my friends
what to think what to do just to talk to you again
somewhere, hope I'll meet you there
half a story told
half open to anything
to luck, good and bad and all they bring
half a story told
enough to hook me in
caught out caught between tonight and today
rhythms rise as we're carved from clay
every form every hollow every knot that you've known
you took a land, shaped the rocks in your hands
