Track Name: Lost In Time
my hair's a little longer now
and you look taller too
it's funny how the months have gone
i've somehow managed to hold on

waking up when you're asleep
my sundown at your noon
the blue between our reaching arms
i'd swim it if you weren't so far

and so the time
was a fingerprick compared to the demise
i felt when you got lost inside
another's eyes
right in front of mine
and i told lies
baby i am fine

was it all my fault
something that i missed
did you feel me gone
look for another kiss
place a hand upon
the hands upon your wrist

sit back and sigh
baby got lost in time

spending my nights thinking how
we seemed to be so close
the hardest thing i'll ever do
is stepping back away from you

hours passing used to be
mere seconds when with you
and now i look upon that face
the clock has stopped, i've been replaced

and so the time
was a fingerprick compared to the demise
i felt when you got lost inside
another's eyes
right in front of mine
and i told lies
baby i am fine

was it all my fault
something that i missed
did you feel me gone
look for another kiss
place a hand upon
the hands upon your wrist

sit back and sigh
baby got lost in time

and i'm just secondhand
counting seconds and
waiting for my chance
and i
i'm just secondhand
failing to understand
how i got lost, so far behind

and so the time
was a fingerprick compared to the demise
i felt when you got lost inside
another's eyes
right in front of mine
and i told lies
baby i am fine

was it all my fault
something that i missed
did you feel me gone
look for another kiss
place a hand upon
the hands upon your wrist

sit back and sigh
baby got lost in time
Track Name: In The Night
we’re both waiting here
but we won’t talk to each other
is the presence enough
almost like a touch

can you see me right here
waiting under the covers
could you push little letters
to make me feel better?

two am for a spark on the screen
but I’m waiting for nothing
cause on your side of things
there’s a violent party
and you’re checking the scene
for the girls
who only message in the night

i gave into the light
and I’m two hours over
how come i never surrender
to the dreams where you lie

three am and I’m losing my team
I’m the only one left
but for your little green
and you’re talking to them
you’re not talking to me
oh your girls
who only message in the night

give it to me baby
say something mundane
& then let me tell you
‘bout the fire in my brain
this insomnia’s killer
but its making me shy
give me something to sleep for
give me phrases to try

four am
and a spark on the screen
why you up at this hour
i just got back from queen
there was a hell of a party
if you know what I mean
and the girls...

and you say that you’d thought it be alright
to talk
to the girl
who’ll only message in the night
Track Name: Wannabe
several things i wanna do
seem so distant makes me blue
several lives i wanna lead
falter as my fingers reach

put my thumb in rolling stone
look at all the open roads
they say that i’ve gotta fight to make it known

so i ask:
is this right for me?
am i living.. completely?
oh, should there ever be
something not meant for me
that i wanna be
oh i wanna be

many men like jewellery
round my neck i wanna see
laugh when i say i can sing
well where’s the work you’re putting in?

thumb in mouth, i bite it down
so bitterly i want the crown
they say that i've got to fight to pin it down

so i ask:
is this right for me?
am i living.. completely?
oh, should there ever be
something not meant for me
that i wanna be
oh i wanna be

maybe i will get the luck
or courage as they’re propping up
my sinking heart,
my dying art

maybe i will just stand up
and sing a lyric on my deathbed
director snaps says there’s the girl
we’ve waited sixty years for her

put my thumb up i'll accept
cause in ten minutes i’ll be dead
so give me ten for entertainment, and five to mourn what’s left

and i ask:
is this right for me?
am i living.. completely?
oh, should there ever be
something not meant for me
that i wanna be
oh i wanna be
Track Name: April, Part 2
tell me you sometimes remember
the night we walked home in the rain
promising next to the highway
we'd stop it from happening again

you threw it away when you held me
bringing your face next to mine
but living in april is tricky
if only it could give me time

the water continued to patter
between steps i made down the lane
we'd parted on better terms lately
but the sting of the truth made me sane

no longer alone in a daydream
i wandered the coldest terrain
'cause april is tricky, it's tricky
and everything must stay the same

and i walked to the place where we once stood
thinking about the last night
why i cried when you left
sitting on the concrete steps

and i crossed to the house where we once lay
and i promised to not tell a soul
april is the cruelest month
it gave me teeth marks on my tongue
april is the cruelest month
it gave me teeth marks on my tongue
april is the cruelest month
it gave me teeth marks on my tongue

april is the cruelest month
it gave me teeth marks on my tongue
