Track Name: Carousel
CAROUSEL


Intro
Dream… (2x)


V1
The carousel my horse and bell oh whoah
The motion fell with rise and swell oh whoah
You caught my eye the blurry night oh whoah
To risk a try for this I might oh whoah


CH
Wide awake I dream in the night
Wide awake I dream in the night (2x)


V2
A flash and spin reflecting lens oh whoah
The portrait when we did begin oh whoah
The touch of hands a heart’s demand oh whoah
The sea expands at our command oh whoah


CH
Wide awake I dream in the night
Wide awake I dream in the night (4x)


B
Dream… (2x)


V3
Your mouth to mine, the taste of wine oh whoah
The dawn arrives oh nevermind oh whoah
Did I mistake asleep for wake oh whoah
And did you take me far away oh whoah


CH
Wide awake I dream in the night
Wide awake I dream in the night (4x)
Track Name: Beating Hearts Ablaze
BEATING HEARTS ABLAZE



V1
Everything within you caught my eye
I could barely breathe as you passed by
All I couldn’t say was in my mind
So I turned ‘round

Everything within me lost in time
I could feel my hands but they weren’t mine
Floating over words I could not find
I made no sound, made no sound



CH
By the way, we’re dancing dancing
By the way, we’re dancing dancing
By the way, we’re dancing dancing oh



V2
Everything around us starts to fade
I can feel you looking back my way
Suddenly we’re standing face to face
As we turn ‘round

Everything between us will not wait
The moment in our hands is not misplaced
Speaking with our beating hearts ablaze
A silent sound, silent sound



CH
By the way, we’re dancing dancing
By the way, we’re dancing dancing
By the way, we’re dancing dancing oh (2x)



V3
Everything between us will not wait no (3x)
When love comes ‘round
Speaking with our beating hearts ablaze (3x)
Our love resounds



CH
By the way, we’re dancing dancing
By the way, we’re dancing dancing
By the way, we’re dancing dancing oh (3x)
Track Name: Aeroplanes
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
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)
Track Name: Histories And Sympathies
HISTORIES AND SYMPATHIES



V1
Our sympathies how they grew
Beside us on those afternoons
Unraveling histories
I carefully tried to mend
What had been broken


CH
Oooh
What had been broken
Oooh



V2
I came upon unaware
You were filled with despair
We talked awhile oh in the sun
Your name was not your name
You hide it away


CH
Oooh
You hide it away
Oooh



V3
As we embraced our goodbyes
You turned aside
Time closing in oh falling down
You pleaded me from the door
But I had to go


CH
Oooh
And I had to go (4x)
