Track Name: Bronze (Desert Mix)
BRONZE


V1
Old dust roads
Dust is swirling round our weary souls
Burning breeze
Bronze the only color that we see
Days gone by
On and on and by and by and by
We will tread
We will tread until we’re dead


CH
Don’t quite know
Where we will go
Oh oh oh (2x)


V2
Dawn dark still
Waiting for the light to rise and spill
High noon now
We are far from where we started out
Bruised by time
Throwing us an empty empty line
Could you please
Could you plea for me to bleed


CH
Don’t quite know
Where we will go
Oh oh oh (3x)


V3
We we we proceed
Wistfully into the evening
Lay lay lay me down
Down onto my bed upon the ground


CH
Don’t quite know
Where we will go
Oh oh oh (4x)
Track Name: Can We Stay (Hushed Mix)
CAN WE STAY


V1
Moonlight streaming through
Through the leaves onto you
And your face all aglow
I see what I had not known

CH
Can we stay here longer
Can we stay until tomorrow
Can we stay here forever

V2
Pale rays forging through
Through this unearthly view
And so perilously
Notions underneath agree

CH
Can we stay here longer
Can we stay until tomorrow
Can we stay here forever

B
Ooh ooh ooh
Ooh ooh ooh

CH
Can we stay here longer
Can we stay until tomorrow
Can we stay here forever
Track Name: Better Than The Pain (Mellow Mix)
BETTER THAN THE PAIN


V1
Never really meant to hurt you
Never really meant to break down
Even though I tried to reach out
From so far down
It was hard to feel the moment
Moments are all we have now


CH1
Was I mistaken to ever think that
You’d love me better than the pain did, the pain did
My heart is breaking
So come and take it from me now


V2
Never really thought I’d find you
Never really thought I’d be found
Even now we’re rushing, rushing out
From so far down
Finally we feel the moment
Moments are what we have now


CH2
We won’t be shaken I have a faith that
You'll love me better than the pain did, the pain did
My heart awakens
So come and take it from me now


B
I always wanted to find you
I always wanted to be found
I knew that I would know you
I knew it somehow
Finally we have our moment
Moments are what we have now


CH3/CH4
We won’t be shaken I have a faith that
You'll love me better than the pain did, the pain did
My heart awakens
So come and take it from me now


CH5
We won’t be shaken I have a faith that
You'll love me better than the pain did, the pain did
These hearts awaken
And now we start to hear the sound
Track Name: King And Queen (Interlude)
LIGHT VOCALS

Ooohs
Track Name: Long Lost Century (Hushed Mix)
LONG LOST CENTURY


V1
On a moonless night in a burned out building
Your heavy cries were floating
Seems all your life has needed mending
So you cut the ties to the old things
Oh whoa whoa


V2
Oh golden light of a daydream dawning
Now held so tight by the story
Of a carriage ride in a long lost century
Through a countryside in the morning
Oh whoa whoa


CH
I’ll take you out of here tonight (2x)
I'll take you out of here


V3
A man in white his gold watch turning
Was pressed for time you hurried
To drink his wine and follow blindly
But in your mind was folly
Oh whoa whoa


CH
I’ll take you out of here tonight (2x)
I'll take you out of here


B
Ooh ooh (4x)


V4
Your breath inside the window fogging
On the panes you write a warning
To the promised bride, her spotted ponies
And velvet shrine of endings
Oh whoa whoa


CH2
I’ll take you out of here tonight (2x)
You need no longer suffer fright
I’ll take you out of here tonight (2x)
Track Name: Hold You Tonight (Mellow Mix)
HOLD YOU TONIGHT


V1
Should I forget you oh
Do I need to let you go
Holding onto you in my mind
Every shadow hides your face
You're the one I can't replace
Oh I know because I have tried


V2
I hear you call my name
Voices go from where they came
I can feel the echo inside
If only to pretend
I imagine once again
We collapse and then we collide



CH
Is everybody wrong
Is everybody right
Does it really matter tonight
‘Cause everybody longs
And everybody cries
I just want to hold you tonight (2x)



B
Tonight
Oh I just want to hold you tonight (4x)


V3
I see you in my dreams
Monochrome and memory
Everything a moment in time
Can we shine within the dark
If i touch you will you spark
Burning up again we ignite


CH
Is everybody wrong
Is everybody right
Does it really matter tonight
‘Cause everybody longs
And everybody cries
I just want to hold you tonight (3x)


B
Tonight tonight
Oh I just want to hold you tonight (2x)


CH
Is everybody wrong
Is everybody right
Does it really matter tonight
‘Cause everybody longs
And everybody cries
I just want to hold you tonight
Tonight
Track Name: Aeroplanes (Acoustic)
AEROPLANES



INTRO
Huh, hu-uh, hu-uh, hu-uh (3x)


V1
You and I, you and I, you and I
Both ought to
Know the night, know the night, know the night
Comes from the day
Passed away

V2
By the time, by the time, by the time
We close our
Weary eyes, weary eyes, weary eyes
We drift away
To the grey



CH
Aeroplanes flying across all the oceans
Continents crying oh what have we lost over there
Did we find it so soft and so silent
What do you think we should do


B
Do do do / Hu-uh, hu-uh (3x)



V3
After all, after all, after all
These webs have
Spun along, spun along, spun along
Most things escaped
We regain


CH
Aeroplanes flying across all the oceans
Continents crying oh what have we lost over there
Did we find it so soft and so silent
What do you think we should do


B
Do do do / Hu-uh, hu-uh (3x)
Track Name: Sudden Love (Acoustic)
SUDDEN LOVE



V1
My heart is still here
Sometimes it disappears
Buried underneath the years
Bottled in fear
And when your sudden love appears
I find I’m nowhere near
Hidden deep and dark unclear
The number of tears


V2
My heart is saving its thoughts
Up for the sidewalks
And pockets are lonely with no one to talk
Over the walls
My feet have faltered and hands are distraught
Holding a heavy plot
As my heart reaches the door that it locked
I feel what’s been lost



CH
And the hardest part this time
Is knowing you might be right
And the hardest heart inside
Is hoping you might be mine


V3
Slowly my loneliness opens its eyes
Issues an alibi
There inside your hand where it tries
To push back aside
When the quiet speaks and we tremble inside
Feeble hearts revive
I can’t explain though I will not deny
What happened tonight


CH
And the hardest part this time
Is knowing you might be right
And the hardest heart inside
Is hoping you might be mine (2x)
