Track Name: Is this closure?
Silence, hello my old friend,
It’s been a long time and you’ve been waiting
Violence, controlling our hands,
Destroying past lives which we created

I wanted more but I shattered our hearts,
Threw a brick of betrayal and left you with these scars
I won’t hurt you anymore,
Now we’re over and long due for fresh starts

Few were sworn to secret’s and then told,
Broke our trust and then watched it all unfold
Some of us will never learn,
Let’s start a fire just to feel the burn

Goodbye, I apologise, you’ll be safe this time…
Track Name: Love loss
Caught you singing in your sleep,
And dancing whilst you’re dreaming
Friendly little beats penetrate your ears,
Dirty driven riffs scare all your fears

Wake up, wake up not the one,
Get from under the sheets
Shake up, shake up and have some fun,
Make up, make up scream from our lungs
Gets so hard to leave/breath,
Break up, break up its time to run/you selfish cunt

Lips pressed on lips, one night one kiss,
Hands on your hips, last night pure bliss

Remember these eyes if you will,
But once closed they are forever sealed
For I will not fall in love, only fall for lust,
Remember my face if you must
But it plays on your mind like a drug,
No need to fall in love, only fall for lust

For I won’t fall in love
Track Name: Car crash TV episode
You’re down on luck my friend, I’ll make you feel much better,
I fucked it up again, we always said forever
You said you’d never do regrets, what do you call this?
I let it get inside my head and now it’s torturing

I’m just sick of seeing the ugly side of love,
All the drama, I refuse to play along

A strong shoulder to lend, will not bring us together,
Please let’s not just pretend, it’s always now or never
I said I’d never do it again, you pulled all the strings,
You let it get inside your head and now we’re suffering

You have drowned the noise out, I am no longer louder than a whisper,
I have doused the flames out, you are barely burning brighter than anyone else

And you scream your words over me,
Are you listening?
Sing it!
Track Name: Four letter words
Lost at sea, the taste of this salt filling our lungs,
I can’t breathe, we’re just a song that’s already been sung
Avoid mistakes, when we talk in these four letter words,
Stop heartbreak, but these voices chose not to be heard

A distant cry for help my love,
The voyage ended long before we learnt

Wash away our memories, now it’s over,
Burning bridges down is all we know
Colours burst in time and fade, it’s all over,
Screaming last goodbyes before we choke

Set her free, swim to shore and recapture the time that’s yours,
Speak softly, she’s insecure but she is always heard
Bodies crave, when we talk in these five letter words,
Our minds shape, into burdened and forever cursed
Track Name: Collapsed under our creation
We live, we learn, just to survive,
Hold back our love, wear a disguise
Shy away from the rest of the world,
Decide to take then lose it all

Were on our way down we are all falling,
Collapsed under our own creation, this won’t last forever
Were on our way down we are falling,
We have to divide ourselves before we come together

My, my you missed you’re turn,
Take, take you’ll ruin the girl
Rely on your faith then someone gets hurt,
Lie awake and justice is served
Track Name: Distress calls (part one)
I’m afraid that the water will fill up my lungs
before I get to show you my voice,
Wash away my everything, it seems so far
that I can’t shout that hard,
Memories made, they have not yet begun
to tell you I wish that I had a choice,
So it fades out to a dark background where I’ve made my mark

I’ve been burning bridges down,
I’ve been building on top of my doubts,
You may as well admit that I don’t fit in
All thoughts turn to storm clouds,
I’m sure that we’ll capsize before I figure you out,
Who will steer this ship if there’s no captain?

Your silhouette casts shadows over the sea,
You’re the calm before the storm or so we’re led to believe
Using all my strength trying to stay afloat,
Giving up is giving in, I don’t want to choke
We look up to the stars and gaze, they look down upon us and pray,
In hope that we’ll find land someday, and make it our home to stay

No we can’t tread this water and I’m sure we’ll drown,
Feel something’s holding us under, feel like it’s pulling us down
Track Name: Holding us under (part two)
I feel something is holding us under
Track Name: Give up the ghost
The light has gone, just another day wasted,
No longer hold on, our presence has faded…
Into darkness, we can’t return

The nights are long, it’s where we want saving,
And someone to hold, a body to lay with
It’s where I need you most,
But I can’t give up the ghost

I shouldn’t ask but could you act as lonely as I feel now
I shouldn’t hold onto this hope but it kills the time…

With you has passed, and we’ve had our last,
So goodbye my friend, this heart could not mend

I shouldn’t ask but could you act as lonely as I feel now
I shouldn’t hold onto this hope but it makes the time pass
Track Name: Deceive or believe?
Been a cheat without the regret,
Lacked the guilt but stacked up intent,
I’m a mountain that won’t break,
Played the victim that can’t be saved
I’m a word that is only said,
Without substance only pretence,
I’m the kind to pass all the blame,
And you know that it’ll never change

I’m a story that’s over told,
That lie that’ll always unfold,
I’m the face that you won’t forgot,
A song that sticks in your head
I’m the frost when it is cold
And the silence when you’re alone,
I’m part of you like a sixth sense,
And every gasp in your breath

Would you change it all my love?
Could you sacrifice the hurt?
Replace all rage with words,
So who will give in first?

You won’t let go,
Because you hope there’s a happy ending,
Then let’s elope,
Because we know that we’re done pretending

I love you my dear,
But I have a funny way of showing it,
I know it’s not ideal,
I’ll write as many songs as I can sing

I’ll keep writing these words,
For as long as you’re here my love
Track Name: Past,present,future
Bring back the good times, please just stay,
I guessed I lacked promises and pushed you away
Let’s not kill the romance that’s left my love.
Like I killed the romantic in myself all at once

I’m sorry that I let our time pass
