Stars 03:56
The stars wonʼt shine until youʼre mine The moon wonʼt glow until you know That ever since you stumbled blindly fell into my world I have come undone my hearts unfurled No sun has set ever since you left The clocks all stopped but you did not I need to wind the earth again to start it going round Oh I need to right what let you down The time has come to take a breath Get out this hole get out this mess of mine, of mine Well Iʼve dreams of you but I need more than Fiction in itʼs purest form and now I, I am willing to try. So Iʼll call you up with words of love And write you songs with your name on And wait for all the orbits in your head to align Oh the stars wonʼt shine until youʼre mine No the stars wonʼt shine until youʼre mine

You took the beat of my heart And you moved all the pieces, you pulled it apart Now it plays on repeat and I cant stop the rhythm you've started. You took the tune in my head And replaced it with melodies you wrote instead Now they're coming on through and I'm spreading the song that you've started, Oh now play me another melody, melody Stay, light a fire under me, under me And I'll make up a cover to keep us dry, As the raindrops beat down rhythms from the sky. You took the breath from my lungs Now there's nothing else left and I've clearly begun To fall head over chest so now come carry on what you've started You took the words from my tongue And you silenced my troubles, you hushed every one And I finally heard all my thoughts clear and strong and I started Oh now play me another melody, melody Stay, light a fire under me, under me And I'll make up a cover to keep us dry, As the raindrops beat down rhythms from the sky.

Little One 03:41
Oh little one, I know you will grow so bold and strong Oh beautiful, there's no way you can go wrong But tread in footsteps follow my heel I'll provide a break, a shield. Ooh. Oh little one, I know they'll be knocking at my door Oh beautiful, you'll go and you'll leave them wanting more. But tread in footsteps follow my heel I'll provide a break, a shield. Ooh. And even when cold wind's blowing right through I'll cripple my back to shelter you.. you. And when they're calling your name Donʼt forget what you're leaving ʻCause I'll be singing the same Little song that I taught you this evening By the fireside whilst you lay sleeping, little one. Now my girl, you'll fall for the one who doesnt care How he'll hold your heart and how he'll hold your stare But tread in footsteps follow my heel I'll provide a break, a shield. Ooh. And even when cold wind's blowing right through I'll cripple my back to shelter you.. you. And when he's calling your name Donʼt forget what you're leaving ʻCause I'll be singing the same Little song that I taught you this evening By the fireside whilst you lay sleeping, little one.

A rustling of leaves blows in through our window Itʼs been carried on a breeze straight on to our pillows And it sounds like a song. A song to fall in love to A song to fall in love with you Butter coloured light melting through the curtain Mixed with honey-scented sighs. Now we've both been bitten And it tastes like a dream. A dream to fall in love to A dream to fall in love with you. And we're cast in light and shadow. Weʼre a picture. We are two And we fit just like a puzzle. And it feels like a scene A scene to fall in love to. A scene to fall in love with you A song to fall in love to. A song to fall in love with you.

Oil & Gold 03:31
Well I've walked a thousand miles with a thought in my head Through the rain and sleet and snow and every word he said It was time for me to go, I just could not pretend that I wanted it too. That I wanted it too Now I'm working my heart into the ground Trying to find something that can't be found. Breaking my fingers, breaking my back. Searching for a needle in a hay stack Searching for a needle in a hay stack Drilling for oil, mining for gold Looking for a love that never gets old Drilling for oil, mining for gold Looking for a love that never gets old So I'll draw a map to follow, find the lay of the land Make a compass to the heart of one who'll understand And I'll gather up my scars, oh Iʼll endure all I can Just to bring me to you, to bring me to you... Drilling for oil, mining for gold Looking for a love that never gets old...

Battles 03:35
Every time I find your smile My head battles my heart Up and down my spine Those soldiers softly start to march Theyʼre defending every weak point that you find But I'm losing every war thatʼs going on inside.. I surrender. I'm giving up. I surrender. I lay down my guns. I surrender. Now I'll wave the flag. I'm beaten by the best enemy I've ever had. Now and then I hold your chin and your face fills my hands But you could break my fingers with one smile I know you can I resisted every movement that you made Now I'm losing everything and I am bound to break I surrender. I'm giving up. I surrender. I lay down my guns. I surrender. Now I'll wave the flag. I'm beaten by the best enemy I've ever had.

Butterfly child is leaving. Flutter of red and gold Fickle and wild, she's fleeing Love that has now grown old. Taking the next air current. Catching the breeze that blows. Butterfly child is keeping the moss from off her stone. Butterfly child is teasing, playing the game so well Sheʼs already won, before its begun by catching you with her spell Stealing your best intentions. Soaking up all your worth Butterfly child has only to smile. She wonʼt have to say a word But I wont let you feel it when she goes No I wont leave you bleeding in the cold Oh you can share my shelter and I'll melt your frozen heart ʻTil butterfly child is nothing but only a fading scar ..Butterfly child is stunning carrying on her show but after a while she's nothing, with nowhere to call a home... But I wont let you feel it when she goes No I wont leave you bleeding in the cold Oh you can share my shelter and I'll melt your frozen heart ʻTil butterfly child is nothing but only a fading scar

Turn back the clocks, change the numbers Wind backs the watch on your wrist Turn back our lives through the summers Rewind back to find the first kiss 8 7 6 5 watch us in the moonlight 4 3 2 1 catch that second of time Donʼt tick donʼt tock. Iʼm keeping the clock from turning Donʼt tick donʼt tock. Oh and maybe if it stops The fires in your heart will keep on burning Remember when we caught the midnight train Then lost ourselves goodbye-ing in the rain Now think of that before you turn Upon your heel and go Because that is all that matters now, you know. Call back the love now departed. Unpack the bags in the hall End all the fights that we started. Mend every wound heal them all 8 7 6 5 back to when you were mine 4 3 2 1 hearts and fingers entwined Donʼt tick donʼt tock. Iʼm keeping the clock from turning Donʼt tick donʼt tock. Oh and maybe if it stops The fires in your heart will keep on burning

Hush now chase those troubles from your head. You can run. To a place where you feel alive instead. Oh now run. You can breathe in deep Let the air taste sweeter in your lungs And we could soothe our souls see our hearts unfold If you come. Come follow me. Come follow me. I lost myself in a sea of dreams, I was gone I could not get through those moments in between dusk and dawn. And so I searched all night, singing lullabyes to the sun And I found your face and a warm embrace, oh now come. Come follow me. Come follow me Oh come feel the beat, come feel the rhythm. Come follow me and letʼs start living. Shadows fall and mirrors break and love can fade away Caught up in our own mistakes we fight to bare the weight So take my arm wrap it right 'round yours, it's begun We can move to beats never heard before, new rhythms Oh I can see for miles, there are distant smiles coming on And we can wear them well on our broken shells Oh now come. Come follow me. Come follow me

If I could swim to your shore, then walk right up to your door, Would you open up? Open up for me? If I gave my body and soul, changed my for sale sign to sold. Would you do the same? Do the same, for me? Just for me.. Hypothetically yours. Hypothetically yours. If you want me I could be your honey. I'll be yours to pour Oh I am hypothetically yours. Hypothetically yours Iʼm just testing, second-guessing you Dipping my toe in the stream. I'm not saying that I'll break in two if you make like a tree ...and leave. But I'll mend those cracks in your heart, Erase each one your scars. If you'll do the same, do the same, for me. Just for me... I'm hypothetically yours. Hypothetically yours. If you want me I could be your honey. I'll be yours to pour Oh I am hypothetically yours. Hypothetically yours
