Track Name: Passing Cars
I don't think
We need a drink
What we need
Is a way to sleep and to wake up

To find we find traffic like
A water stream, it seems
One more round
Then we’ll get to where we’re bound

One eye on each other
One eye on passing cars
One eye on each other
One eye on passing cars

Seven years
Down south
We moved here
And built a house

And we can count
On an open sunroof all the time
We'll find a way to take
The heat in stride
One more time

One eye on each other
One eye on passing cars
One eye on each other
One eye on passing cars
Track Name: Cold Coast
Creatures in the night
Glimmering eyes
Their thoughts dealing with fright
But their hearts keep beating

Creatures in the night
Heading for the hills
Saying “We are winter
Have always been”

Where the trees grow so tall
It's nothing at all
It's nothing at all
You say we're getting close
To the cold coast

Creatures in the night
Glimmering eyes
Find out what could have been
Heading for the hills

And we just want our warm wishes to go
And hear them hissing through the cold coast

Where the trees grow so tall
It's nothing at all
It's nothing at all
You say we're getting close
To the cold coast
Track Name: Can't You See
Evening, made on a whim
Are we the last part
Of this hopelessly lost art
Just to be

People rise and descend
One step ahead of trends
One step ahead of me
Can’t you see

We’ll never stand in the sun
Nights are cool
I feel warm
In the darkness, bittersweet
When tired lights flicker in the street

Oh, this wild devotion and desire
Spread like a forest fire
Fight back or choose to retire

I was made on a whim
That’s how I’ll always be
That’s how I’ll always be
Can’t you see

We’ll never stand in the sun
In the darkness, bittersweet
When tired lights flicker in the street
(Wild devotion and desire)
Track Name: My Messenger
It could be like the leaves
Falling slowly to the street
Then vanishing, disappearing
It could be a new season
Like a fashion finally
Lack of passion

Pick me up, my messenger
With your thoughts, my messenger
Pick me up, my messenger
With your talk, my messenger
(I'll sit and wait)

It could be like a dream
Fraying gently at the seams
Then unravelling, disappearing
It could be a way to reason
Like a fashion finally
Lack of passion

There is nowhere to go
There is nothing to do

Pick me up, my messenger
With your talk, my messenger
Pick me up, my messenger
With your thoughts, my messenger

I'll sit and wait
I'll sit and wait
Track Name: NHNT
All the while
Practicing lines
Living room
Temperature mild
Whispering them to shadows
Fall is banging on the window

Wild winds declare the storm
Sweeping in like never before
I bend
Gracefully
Faithfully
Hopefully
You can't hide your feelings from me

Neither here nor there
Neither here nor there

I want to match the colours of your mind
I want to catch these feelings on time
Fallen down the stairs, you've committed a crime
Don’t run away from home

Wild winds declare the storm
Sweeping in like never before
I bend
Gracefully
Faithfully
Hopefully
You can't hide your feelings from me

Neither here nor there
Neither here nor there
Track Name: Feather
If I say “Don’t get me wrong”
I wish there could be a song
You could sing
Like a blanket for the weather
Lay your blanket lay forever
With your voice of feather

If I say “Don’t get me right”
Could you use words as dark as the night
Oh you might
With memories like stars
They are never very far
Memories like stars

Your voice of feather
Held me from the weather
Your voice of feather
Held me from the weather

Is this heaven or a game
Well you know to me it’s all the same
When you sing
When you play it as it lays
Play it for the warmer days

Oh, the warmer days
Oh, the warmer days
Oh, the warmer days

Your voice of feather
Held me from the weather
Your voice of feather
Held me from the weather
Track Name: Don’t Behave
I dream of clues
I cook for two
I see it clear
I am smoke and mirrors
It's an open house
But no one's been told
Only animals
Come to the door

I wash it up
I see it through
I could go without
The daily news
Then step outside
Where the beach is kin
To the latest colour of my skin

Didn't we say
Don't behave
Don’t you wanna save
This time and place

In an open house
With room to be bold
It's okay to write
So I've been told
I like the clear
Smoke in the wind
And the latest color of my skin

Didn't we say
Don't behave
Don’t you wanna save
This time and place
Track Name: City
Sometimes
City like a fanfare
Bursting everywhere
Hollow sounds set the mood all around

I can recognize
A city in disguise
Hollow sounds for my old treading ground
I can recognize
My tactics are revised

With every melody
Melody
A whisper in my ear
It’s enough for me
Every melody

Though I
I know I have to stay
Have to live this way
So I tell this city

Show your hidden beauty
Undress it for me
Show it again, won’t you please

Melody
With every melody
A whisper in my ear
It’s enough for me
Every melody

Hollow sounds set the mood all around
I can recognize
A city improvised
Hollow sounds for my old treading ground

I can recognize
My tactics are revised

Oh, a whisper in my ear
Oh, a whisper in my ear
Oh, a whisper in my ear
Track Name: Stay Still
We are glad
We are meek
Minutes pass
Then a week
Through the window
A breeze

I can make
My mind stay still
When I work
By the sill
Of my window
I hear

Metal hearts
Clicking heels
Chatterbox
Clacking steel
Former glories

I can make
My mind stay still
When I work
By the sill
Of my window

Stay until
The moon is out
Cool your head
Float about
Until morning
I hear...
Track Name: Crashing Waves
Want to be by your side
Everything can subside
When we both close our eyes
I see what you see

Half asleep, half awake
I am yours to take
Half awake, half asleep
I am yours to keep

In the sand, our bodies lied
Tracing out contour lines
When the tide pulls us
To the dark sea

There will
Still be you and me
There will
Always be
I want to live in peace
Count the days one by one
Count the crashing waves
One by one

Half awake, half asleep
I am yours to keep

There will
Still be you and me
There will
Always be
I want to live in peace
Count the days one by one
Count the crashing waves
One by one
