Track Name: Maybe
there’s something in the light
that keeps you coming back for more
but when you’re here it looks so dark
is that what you saw before?
i could show you where i’m from
but the maps won’t tell you why
cos all that sings lives in the sun
and we have nothing
we have nothing to become

after all the hallelujahs
after all the silent nights
after all when truth is dancing at your door
and you can see, cos you’re not searching anymore

baby, maybe we’ve all been a part
of the same thing from the very start
baby, maybe we’ve all been a part
of the same thing from the very start

she told me nothing’s ever lost
she taught me time is just a game
and every death another breath
can you hear our names in the pouring rain?

after all the hallelujahs
after all the silent nights
after all when truth is dancing at your door
and you can see, cos you’re not searching anymore

baby, maybe we’ve all been a part
of the same thing from the very start
baby, maybe we’ve all been a part
of the same thing from the very start
baby, maybe we’ve all been a part
of the same thing from the very start
baby, maybe we’ve all been a part
of the same thing from the very start
Track Name: Where Did The Time Go
hello stranger, i'm a child
i can show you how you used to smile
and be the things you can't express
that's when truth is at its best

i remember well
the way you used to tell
of how we found the sea
by mama’s mango tree
we all live in between
the silent silver screen
and someone’s fading dream

mmm, where did the time go?
mmm, where did the time go?

is this the way to half moon bay?
are these the words that you could never say?
is this the place i learned to laugh
before the silence in the photographs?

i remember well
the way you used to tell
of how we found the sea
by mama’s mango tree
we all live in between
the silent silver screen
and someone’s fading dream

mmm, where did the time go?
mmm, where did the time go?

mmm, where did the time go?
mmm, where did the time go?
mmm, where did the time go?
mmm, where did the time go?
Track Name: Please Don't Change
she said "what do you mean?"
baby, can’t you tell?
yesterday came quick
now i’m someone else
i’ve got to get back
i wish you would stay like that

that’s the stuff we need
let’s wait for a song
la da da da da
la da doo da da
let’s get back

please don’t change
please don’t change

take a second guess
we don’t live like that
she said now’s the time
change is all we’ve got
but i’m gonna hold on
i’m gonna keep the sun

behind the windy beach
that’s where we laid down
i remember well
we were drowned beneath
the sound of silent life

please don’t change
please don’t change
please don’t change
please don’t change

let’s be strangers
please don’t change
let’s be strangers
please don’t change
let’s be strangers
please don’t change
Track Name: The Light
she was asking about the way we always say we’re new
when there is silence between the words we say and that should do
i can’t remember behind my self, behind my selfish walls
so take me outside, take me to a place where i recall

something about the light
there’s something about the light
there’s something about the light

we were watching the shadows painting sand beneath the palm
if i am you babe, how can i feel alone in twilight’s arms?
we don’t need to keep the cold out while we’re living in the sun
she said "it’s time babe, to begin now to forget what we’ve become"
i said

something about the light
there’s something about the light
there’s something about the light

won’t you tell me when you’re tired of this take
we can start again and try to stay awake
won’t you tell me when you’re tired of this take
we can start again and try to stay awake

something about the light
there’s something about the light
there’s something about the light
Track Name: The Shade
give me shadows, give me hard times
give me something, i want something i can’t change
give me foolish, just the laughter
i know you want to learn to live without a name
because it’s all the "i am's" and all the small talk
that make it hard to listen, make it hard to play
but we could let the day pass
watch the feelings fading past us
save the words for things we want to say

come with me babe
you know we’ve got god’s attention
in our silent souls
if we can find the shade
in the midst of all the tension
that's where i'll feel at home

give me secrets, it’s an old dream
we can see the things the mountain doesn’t hide
but the view looks different when you find yourself beside it
sign the papers and wait patiently inside
i will love my pain, you can do the same
i think it helps to see the ocean in your eyes
but there’s something lost with every moment we don’t trust
time will take us to a place beyond the lies

come with me babe
you know we’ve got god’s attention
in our silent souls
if we can find the shade
in the midst of all the tension
that's where i’ll feel at home
Track Name: It's You
if i could paint my words with colours undefined
if i could be a man who moulds a million minds
if i could build myself that empire of dirt
if i could feel like i've forgotten how to hurt
if i could see myself with nothing left to hide
i'd leave it all behind if i could have you by my side
yes i'd leave it all behind just to have you by my side

so when i ask you where you're going
you might tell me that it's fine
but i have seen that love lives in your smile
won't you stay with me a while?

i've realised it's you i'm trying to find
with all this searching that's been taking up my time
i don't know why i keep on hiding my mind
when i've realised it's you i’m trying to find

if i could feel the foggy magic of the dream
if i could know the lives of everyone i've been
if i could stare the end right in the eyes and smile
if i could make the judge laugh when i go up on trial
if i could bare it all with nothing left to hide
i'd leave it all behind if i could have you by my side
yes i'd leave it all behind just to have you by my side

so when i ask you where you're going
you might tell me that it's fine
but i have seen that love lives in your smile
won't you stay with me a while?

i've realised it's you i'm trying to find
with all this searching that's been taking up my time
i don't know why i keep on hiding my mind
when i've realised it's you i’m trying to find

i've realised that it's you i'm trying to find
with all this searching that's been taking up my time
i don't know why i keep on hiding my mind
when i've realised that it's you i’m trying to find
i've realised it's you i’m trying to find
i've realised it's you i’m trying to find
i've realised it's you
Track Name: Lines of Time
i have seen the lines of time
carved like music in your mind
melodies of childish dreams
life is only what it seems

can you know me, do you see
the silent salted certainty
that keeps me laying down my soul?
truth is here but i am old
truth is here but i am old

are you sick
are you bound?
are you a sailor
have you been lost and found?
are you a messenger
do you play the game?
are you a gambler
or are you just a name?

the paint is thick, the painter tired
he cannot stop till love and fire
is lain down on his canvas bare
for all to see, for none to care
for all to see, for none to care

are you rich
or do you late?
are you a reason
will you see her backstage?
are you a writer
are you in it for fame?
are you a gambler
are you just a name?

i have seen the lines of time
carved like music in your mind
i have seen the lines of time
carved like music in your mind
i have seen the lines of time
carved like music in your mind
i have seen the lines of time
carved like music in your mind...
