Track Name: In the Backyard
And this time one year ago – I was in the studio
Drawing pictures with all of our fingers – covered in charcoal
Cause I want it all – without all the strings
You are one of my favourite things

I’m glad I met you now – and not four years ago
Cause now we’ve got all the time we need – to take it slow

And I’m starting to wake up to the sound
Of the voice through your lungs - and – out – that perfect mouth
And I’m starting to wake up to the view
Of the trees in the backyard – out the window – of our room

I’m glad I met you now – and not four years ago
Cause now we’ve got all the time we need – to take it slow

And all we have is all I need (x3)
Track Name: Sound of Home
And I'll hold my head up high
Eyes looking up towards the sky
And I'll give - give -give away
One more minute a second of my day
And I'd give anything - anything to stay in your light
The one you keep on shinning - the one that makes me feel alright

Through the dark and wooden trees
Are the sounds of birds and bees
But down - down - down the road
It's the sound of home

Lying in the fields of green - floating in the clouds of dream
Dog panting through his teeth - wind whispers through the leaves
Sun scolding my face nothing is stopped in my way
So I'll keep you in my heart - I won't forget the words you say

And we'll never know a love - a love like that
So real in the moment - that you can't look back

Through the dark and wooden trees
Are the sounds of birds and bees
But down - down - down the road
It's the sound of home
Track Name: Seaside
Let’s walk down to the sea
Watch our little boat – sail away with our dreams
Write a wish down – in the sand
Running through the waves – holding your hand

Catch your eye – but you look away
Trying to find the words to say
But I decide that the silence says it best
And your laugh it fills in the rest

Down by the seaside
Watch the ships as they rolling on by
Down by the seaside
I’ve never felt so alive

Tug of war – you push – I pull
Never knowing when to let go
Nothing left to do but watch the sunrise
The wind chills us to the bone – but moves the tides


Down by the seaside
Watch the ships as they rolling on by
Down by the seaside
I’ve never felt so alive

Row – row – row - your boat
Gently down the stream
Merrily – merrily – merrily life is but a dream (x2)
Track Name: Fearless
Fearless – immortal being
Shattered by the way – you look at me
Lift the curtains from my eyes
So that I can finally see

That I’m no ones property
And I don’t belong to you – you don’t belong to me
And it’s not right to hold on tightly
To old lost dreams that don’t mean a thing

Don’t be devoured by your past
The sun will rise – the sun will rise
These moments too – they shall pass
Seize the day – seize the day

Cause I’m no ones property
And I don’t belong to you – you don’t belong to me
And it’s not right to hold on tightly
To old lost dreams that don’t mean a thing
Track Name: Unlearn
Why are we so far away
From the truth – come what may
Why are we – so far?
See the truth beneath the lies
It’s in your eyes
I see you

So move in a little closer
I want to feel your chest up against mine
So move in a little slower
I want to feel your lips up against mine

Sometimes – I get caught up
With the words – that you say
And they lose their meaning
Missed the point
That your trying – to convey
Don’t hide from - the life your living
Don’t try to – justify
Don’t be scared – hold me tight
And look to the sky

Make mistakes – taking wrong turns
I once was lost – but now I’m found
And ready to unlearn – ready to unlearn
Track Name: Violent Love
I need a warrior – a fighter of light
To help me fight these demons through the night
And I’m sorry for the way I am
If you could only read my mind
Then you would understand
All this self-pity – poor me
Oh are you blind – or can you see ?
I’m sorry for the pain I’m placing on you
But I’m walking around – with scars and open wounds

From violent love (x6)

I need a soldier – who’s stronger than me
Who can see past the meaning of the words I’m speaking
And this fight that were having – a fragment of the past
It’s all an illusion – I know it won’t last
But there’s a lurking fear – this will be the last time
That I’ll push you away – that you’ll change your mind

From violent love (x6)

I need a warrior – a fighter of light
Who can hold my hands – and walk through the shadows
Your reaction – a reflection that I can’t ignore
Will you help me bury this monster under the floor ?

With our violent love (x6)
Track Name: Freedom
It leaves me breathless – it leaves me blind
I feel so reckless – all the time
It’s the oneness you feel – running through you
With the things that you say – and the things that you do

Freedom – I’m feeling free (x2)

It leaves me breathless – it leaves me blind
I feel so reckless – all the time
It’s the oneness you feel – running through you
With the things that you say – and the things that you do

Freedom – I’m feeling free (x2)
