Track Name: Stars
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
Track Name: The Rhythm You Started
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.
Track Name: Little One
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.
Track Name: Song To Fall In Love To
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.
Track Name: Oil & Gold
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...
Track Name: Battles
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.
Track Name: Butterfly Child
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
Track Name: Change The Numbers
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
Track Name: Come Follow Me
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
Track Name: Hypothetically Yours
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
