Track Name: An Invitation
They wear masks in varied colours
They make silver look like other
Not so bright metallic hues
But I've seen gold inside of you
And whilst these walls are black
I know you're coming back soon
And all this hope I lack
You will be bringing back with you

But I won't hold you
To anything
If I see your red light
I will halt everything for you
But I won't hold back
Would you like me too?
If I see your red light
I will halt everything for you

There's a new moon tonight
Where have they put the silver light?
There is a back room in my head
Up the stairs and you're invited
Round the bend, it's bare
That will not matter when you're there
I'll throw the keys outside
Once I've locked it from the inside

But I won't hold you
To anything
If I see your red light
I will halt everything for you
But I won't hold back
Would you like me too?
If I see your red light
I will halt everything for you

Ahhhhh
Could I possibly know you?
When the day
Comes I'll show you
What you are

But I won't hold you
To anything
If I see your red light
I will halt everything for you
But I won't hold back
Would you like me too?
If I see your red light
I will halt everything for you
Track Name: Your Pictures
Take your flowers and
Give me your heart
You're nervous and
It suits you well
So keep it on

I see you
Even now your colour's gone
Don't leave me here alone
Your form
Is painted and my eyes are full

Give me what I want
Oh before I
Turn
Your pictures on the wall
Into life

Make me what you want
Oh your ecstasy
Now take me into yours and
Embrace mine

Take away your words and
Give me your love
We will grow in confidence
If given chance

Show me into
When your lights are on
And lead me when they're off
Your shape
Is hiding in my dark

Give me what I want
Oh before I
Turn
Your pictures on the wall
Into life

Make me what you want
Oh your ecstasy
Now take me into yours and
Embrace mine

Take your uncertainty
And give me hope
Release your breath in me
Lingering grope

Your hands can read
And make a map unfold
Sculpting on their own
You press your fingers
To my bones

Give me what I want
Oh before I
Turn
Your pictures on the wall
Into life

Make me what you want
Oh your ecstasy
Now take me into yours and
Embrace mine

Give me what I want
Oh before I
Turn
Your pictures on the wall
Into life
Track Name: Like You Do
Come over here
But who are you?
Keep me at loss
I said who are you?
Cover me here
But who are you?
Still at a loss
I say who are you?

Are you
Are you
Are you
Are you
Are you
Are you
Are you
Are you

Come over here
But who are you?
Keep me at loss
I said who are you?
Cover me here
But who are you?
Still at a loss
I say who are you?

You touch me like you do
There's nothing here not wanting
Keep holding me in you
And I'll be slowly dying

You feel me like you do
There's something here and I want it
Hold up and onto you
And we'll be slowly dying

Dying
Dying
Dying
Dying

Come over here
But who are you?
Keep me at loss
I said who are you?
Cover me here
But who are you?
Still at a loss
I say who are you?

You touch me like you do
There's nothing here not wanting
Keep holding me in you
And I'll be slowly dying

You feel me like you do
There's something here and I want it
Hold up and onto you
And we'll be slowly dying
Track Name: Be Air
We're losing time to
Days, I know
It's black outside
Even when the lights are on
The air is breathable
If it's even there
The water's wet, we seem still alive
And so fully aware

Throw your arms around me
Like you're saving air
And if we're two times one
Then are we somewhere?
Save this, slow down
Be air
Oh if we're two times no one
Nowhere

We're losing time to
Days, I know
We'll go outside soon
Find out if it's serious
What is this sixth sense I'm feeling?
If we're just not there
When I check, we're both still breathing
And so fully aware

Throw your arms around me
Like you're saving air
And if we're two times one
Then are we somewhere?
Save this, slow down
Be air
Oh if we're two times no one
Nowhere
Track Name: Shared Vision
Feel you run down
Your way
And it's easy

Just a trickle
Delight
You flow in me

Can we build on
And along
A plane of our shared vision

If it comes down
With you
I will bury me

Under
Under
Under
Under

How we're moving
Is so light
And freely done

Around the shape of
The love
We've built this on

Keep it growing
And arousing
Moods of our shared vision

If it falls in
To you
I'll be holding on

Under
Under
Under
Under

Feel you run down
Just a trickle
Can we build on
If it comes down

Under
Under
Under
Under

How we're moving
Is so light
And freely done

Around the shape of
The love
We've built this on

Keep it growing
And arousing
Moods of our shared vision

If it falls in
To you
I'll be holding on

Under
Under
Under
Under
Track Name: Now We Are Giants
I feel so tiny
In all the things we do
And the world seems so pretty
Loving you
On your shoulder, I'm crying
The mountains are moving
The mountains are breathing
Breathing us in

Leave me here (crying)
On your mountain
Leave me here (loving you)
Up in the air
Leave me here (crying)
Under your sun
Leave me here (loving you)
In your atmosphere

Now we aren't so tiny
Climbing onto
The shoulders of giants
Loving you
Take me don't leave me
I'm kneeling at your feet
The mountains are breathing
Breathing us in

Leave me here (crying)
On your mountain
Leave me here (loving you)
Up in the air
Leave me here (crying)
Under your sun
Leave me here (loving you)
In your atmosphere

Now we are giants
The world is all new
And I feel so frightened
Loving you
Don't let me down yet
From rising on her chest
Rising on her chest
Breathing us in

Leave me here (crying)
On your mountain
Leave me here (loving you)
Up in the air
Leave me here (crying)
Under your sun
Leave me here (loving you)
In your atmosphere

Now we are giants
Up on the mountain
Now we are giants
Breathing us in

Now we are giants
Up on the mountain
Now we are giants
Breathing us in
Track Name: Sans Toi
Quand il faisait froid
You came
Reste avec moi
I call your name
Je suis rien
Maintenant
Sans toi

Your hands are holding mine
Why are you standing in one place?
You can't stay frozen

I'll be by your side
I am the silence of the day
I see your eyes, now close them

And then you wonder how far
Away we'll be
When the light greets dark

Oh I wonder how far
You'll get with me
Dear

Late in the day but
We steal away
Watching the night grow
Old and so frail but
We stay awake

Quand il faisait froid
You came
Reste avec moi
I call your name
Je suis rien
Maintenant
Sans toi

Quand il faisait froid
You came
Reste avec moi
I call your name
Je suis rien
Maintenant
Je crois

You smile and I am lost
In all the sparkle of your eyes
I can't stay frozen

If you fall down know that I
Will pull you up and into my
Heart where the space is open

And then you wonder how far
Away we'll be
When the light greets dark

Oh I wonder how far
You'll get with me
Dear

Dark fills the day but
There's clarity
Within our shadow
We can't lose the day if
We stay awake

Quand il faisait froid
You came
Reste avec moi
I call your name
Je suis rien
Maintenant
Sans toi

Quand il faisait froid
You came
Reste avec moi
I call your name
Je suis rien
Maintenant
Je crois
Track Name: I Can't Sleep
Under a bridge
There's a little black fox
Came back to run
You reason
Oh you read it like a book
All these worn out thoughts
Came back to run

Will you run with me?
We're out now go
I can't sleep (without or with you)
Will you run with me?

Upon the bridge
There's a life that's hanging on
Came back to love
We're far above
There's flesh on our thoughts
But that worn out heart
Came back to love

Will you run with me?
We're out now go
I can't sleep (without or with you)
Will you run with me?

Between the ends
All the one's who can mend it
Come back to love
There's reason
Oh the tail of that fox
In the mouth that breathes
Run back to love

Will you run with me?
We're out now go
I can't sleep (without or with you)
Will you run with me?

Will you run with me?
We're out now go
I can't sleep (without or with you)
Will you run with me?
Will you run with me?
Track Name: Run Under The Tree
And when I'm older
If not tomorrow
I'll stay forever
Under the tree

And if you're older
Well past tomorrow
Will you take cover?
Run under the tree

I see you distantly
Pulling you into me

And when I'm older
If not tomorrow
I'll stay forever
Under the tree

And if you're older
Well past tomorrow
Will you take cover?
Run under the tree

Keep your eyes on me
Beneath branches and leaves
I see you distantly
Pulling you into me
Keep your eyes on me
Beneath branches and leaves

And when I'm older
If not tomorrow
I'll stay forever
Under the tree

And if you're older
Well past tomorrow
Will you take cover?
Run under the tree
Track Name: Your Windows
You're not open
Like me
Falling in
Too easily
I'm naive now

You're older
Than me
Looking through
Cynical eyes you'll see
How naive I am

Through your windows I've seen
Your comfort comes from the same chair
Your lights don't run on electricity
Increase the brightness with your fear

You're not open
Like me
Falling in
Too easily
I'm naive now

You're older
Than me
Looking through
Cynical eyes you'll see
How naive I am

Through your windows I've seen
You only read so your don't stray
You are too fond of your routines
And draw your curtains in the day

Through your windows I've seen
Your comfort comes from the same chair
Your lights don't run on electricity
Increase the brightness with your fear

You're not open
Like me
Falling in
Too easily
I'm naive now

You're older
Than me
Looking through
Cynical eyes you'll see
How naive I am

Through your windows I've seen
You lock a door after each day
You've done away with all the keys
So you aren't tempted to escape

Through your windows I've seen
You only read so your don't stray
You are too fond of your routines
And draw your curtains in the day

Through your windows I've seen
Your comfort comes from the same chair
Your lights don't run on electricity
Increase the brightness with your fear
