Track Name: Troubles
Tell me what is it that hurts you
I've been lost so I can help you

Think with your head
Keep it in check
Break to rebuild
End up a wreck
Always be sure
It's so worth it

We're in trouble
Track Name: Leaves
Leave me in the night-time
Watch me follow straight lines below
And I will go through all this
Just for you

A just intention
Never question questions my dear
And I will go through all this
Just for you

Just for you
Just for you
Make me new

Feeling so hopeless
As faith comes between us
I wander in wonder
And pray that no one ever

Leaves me in the night-time
Hanging on a lifeline so dear
And I will go through all this
Just for you

And I won’t mention just how much
This tension it burnt
My wings and left me hanging
Just for you

Just for you
Just for you
Just for you

No one will go
No one will follow
I’m falling so slowly
Just for you
Track Name: Sympathy
Oh what a thing to say
I have never thought about you in that way
Oh please receive a piece of deepest sympathy
I give you my love because it’s going cheap

Oh I’ve not a single rock or stone to throw
So I declare I love you yeah I love you so,
I don’t have a question nothing set in stone
Won’t you go and give the little dog it’s bone?

Our useless back hand habits
Our useless back hand habits
I know something else is coming to get me

Cos I love you cos I hate you come into my home
I just wanna keep you back for my own
Oh I’ll just wrap a ribbon and you’ll shake at the knees
It’s on the top shelf ‘cos it’s only for me

Oh what a thing to say
I have never thought about you in that way
Won’t you come on over I’ve got nothing to do
I could come a long way if I’m coming with you

Our useless back hand habits
Our useless back hand habits
I know something else is coming to get me
Track Name: Stay
Stay with me please
I can’t sleep
I can’t breathe,
I’m lost in you

Light up my way,
And let this hand
Outline your face
To feel something true

Don’t you close your eyes and start to walk away
Won’t you hear my heart? Please listen to its case
I stumble with all my stupid sentences
And try, and try, and try

To carve out some words
So I can say what can’t be heard
So you’ll know it’s new

Please don’t close your eyes, your heart held in dismay
It’s just the voices in my head lead me astray
I stumble with all my stupid sentences
And try

Darling understanding
I’ve been lost in so much sorrow
Place your tiny hand in mine
For so in love, for so in love am I

Stay with me please
To wash my skin
Of this disease
‘Til all turns to blue

Just go close your eyes, don’t look at me that way
Now you see my heart you tell me it’s been stained
I stumble with all my stupid sentences
And try to say it’s fine, we’re fine, it’s fine, we’re fine.

Darling understand
I’ve been lost in so much sorrow
Take your tiny hand in mine
For so in love, for so in love am I
That I don’t hear you leaving
Saying your goodbyes
It’s for the best
You need this
More than words
Could ever say
For so in love
For so in love
For so in love
Am
I.
