Something About Distance

I need it on me
I need it on you
all the things I need to get through
once it happened fast
all day dreaming of the past
I need it so clear
I need it so cruel
all those years I felt like a fool
now I stand up fast
knowing that you'll be gone at last
and all I see
it happens away from me
oh I need them back
the things I left unsaid
I need it on me
I need it on you
all the things I need to get through
once it happened fast
all day dreaming of the past
just look at yourself you hate this weather
hide alone and dream forever
once it happened fast
knowing that you'll be gone at last
and I dream away
it happens away from me
oh I need them back
the things I left unsaid
to you
we were one, tired of some
give me something to rely on


Animal Bones

see through lives
I never go back I never go back
to be who I was then
she closed her eyes
I make you forget but I don't forget
for all this time with me
say you never trust this girl
and neither this world
waste more time on me
you turn and burn
someone to crush apart from a dog
you work your skin to the bones
to your bones
the blood like money it shines
it's like the light in my baby's eyes
this road is only you
you just need her down below
you trying to forget the past
but it's never meant to last
I wish I could cry
I wish I could stay
in this dream of mine
only for today


A Nightbus To Atlanta

White Floor

well I do as the sun's been kind to anyone
I was used to do
well I do as the world's been kind to anyone
I was hoping to
well I just driving on a highway
but I take this shortcut
oh you may come to save me
but beware it won't stop
I just drive around in circles
and miss all the things we love


Aeroplane Aeroplane

there is only one door
the other I wait for
hold on far too long
these pills are broken
a penny will save them
and growing into love
meat and measure
go make them bigger
my blinded youth is you
aeroplane aeroplane
my greatness of pain
never let me go
you taught me to dream
oh you taught me to sleep
you showed me around
in this world what to keep
I told you I'm yours, oh you told me you're mine
I reach out to the stars to give you more time
tell me you want me
a taste from the sea
the silence of you is still growing in me
and I spent my morning with you


America

all my loved ones they're making me sad
all those times when we were taking those risks
and I made you want to go
all my loved ones they're making me sad
all those times when we were taking those risks
and I made you want to go
now I'll go there
and I bring this love
those old times when we wanted to stop
all life I was weak for love
that's all I've got


Giving And Keeping

long time going on and on
no returning
flow to my arms
come on and flow to my heart


I Could Be The One But I Already Am

I'm travelling my world now
I found a new door
I'm changing the clocks now
and I make you even more
I make you yourself now
who you usually ignore
I'm changing the clocks now
who you ignore?
I make you yourself now
I'm changing the clocks now
I make you yourself now
I'm changing the clocks now
I make you yourself now
I'm changing the clocks now
I make you yourself now
I'm changing the clocks now
