Track Name: Second Hand
The knots we tie mean a lot 'till they're just the loose ends they imply
We try and we try to make sense of the senseless and truth of the lies
So tell me who's at fault when the fool decides to jump to the road underneath from the curb of a sidewalk, and expects to fly?

Well soon this will be long ago, soon this will be long ago
Your fingertips trace me so slow, but soon that will be long ago

The webs we spin turn to dust so fast so how could we win?
Atop of his highest branch he comes up beside me to cut off the limb
So tell me who's at fault when the fool decides to jump in so shallow a puddle they found on the street-side, and expects to swim?

Well soon this will be long ago, soon this will be long ago
Your fingertips trace me so slow, but soon that will be long ago

Little words blind your eyes, you won't reach no compromise
You just call for fire

Soon this will be long ago, soon this will be long ago
The second hand just goes and goes and soon we will be long ago
Track Name: Blame
Once upon a time when I was only mine, I only had me to blame if not feeling sublime
Not a word about a boy
Yeah there was a time before there was a crime, I never knew how I'd be if someone crossed the line
Not a word about a boy

Things that should never be said
It's your ego I fed
Don't worry I won't let it happen again
It's too late to be bold
Now your heart is stone cold
In with the new, holding onto the old

Every day we'd meet, assured and guaranteed. So it cut right to the core when you just pressed delete
Couple words about a boy
Was not an easy feat, I missed a couple beats. But all in all in the end I landed on my feet
Couple words about a boy

Things that should never be said
It's your ego I fed
Don't worry I won't let it happen again
It's too late to be bold
Now your heart is stone cold
In with the new, holding onto the old

You don't even know what you are
How could I expect to tame you?
You don't even know what you are
It's not right for me to blame you

Things that should never be said
It's your ego I fed
Don't worry I won't let it happen again
It's too late to be bold
Now your heart is stone cold
In with the new, holding onto the old
Track Name: On Your Feet
They're out there every morning, white figures in the snow
They're at their work for hours, cursing all they know

But we call out together trying to break every rule
And we'll search forever for some diamonds and jewels
As light as a feather but they're still in no mood
Don't stop staring at me like I'm something you don't normally see
There's some rushing to that stream and some sirens in the sea to keep you up on your feet
On your feet

The leaves up on the tree tops, falling from the cold
Some of them get blown away while others turn a colour so bold

And we call out together trying to break every rule
And we'll search forever for some diamonds and jewels
As light as a feather but they're still in no mood

Don't stop staring at me like I'm something you don't normally see
There's some rushing to that stream and some sirens in the sea to keep you up on your feet
On your feet

Like we would heed your warnings
Keep it up, keep it up
Your never-ending stories
Give it up, give it up now

Don't stop staring at me like I'm something you don't normally see
There's some rushing to that stream and some sirens in the sea to keep you up on your feet
On your feet
Track Name: Suddenly
I love your pretty words but I don't know how I should react
I'm reeling you in knowing that I'll have to throw you back
And I don't want to be the kind of girl who would do that
Please just understand I can hardly even tell where I am at

Don't worry about leaving me, suddenly
I know, you know you can't ever be the rest of me
I hope that you don't ever doubt what I said, hope you don't pull the thread
Just believe me that I was compelled by something that I felt

You caught me by surprise now things seem so complicated, don't they?
I learned long ago baby timing was never my forté
Wasting this potential seems wrong, I wish I didn't have to do that
Gotta go with higher stakes, wish I could keep you close but I can't

Don't worry about leaving me, suddenly
I know, you know you can't ever be the rest of me
I hope that you don't ever doubt what I said, hope you don't pull the thread
Just believe me that I was compelled by something that I felt

And I don't want you to ever change your shape
Like a fast car you were my escape
Such a pity to throw this all away
So much harder to do than to say

Don't worry about leaving me, suddenly
I know, you know you can't ever be the rest of me
I hope that you don't ever doubt what I said, hope you don't pull the thread
Just believe me that I was compelled by something that I felt
Track Name: The Sound
Looking for the flare but don't see any sign
Leaves rustle in the moonlight playing tricks on me
Run until they give out, you're nowhere in sight
Voices in my head, words never easy to find

Still see the look on your face, hey
Ashes falling like rain, hey
What's gone could never, no it could never...

Pick up, pick up, pick up, I can't make it alone
Thought give up, give up, all up, and I'm left with the sound
Pick up, pick up, pick up, I can't make it alone
Thought give up, give up, on us, and I'm left with the sound of my heart

Sun's way beneath the clouds, now. Went so long ago
Waves picking up the sound - just echo, echo, echo

Still see the look on your face, hey
Ashes falling like rain, hey
What's gone could never, no it could never...

Pick up, pick up, pick up, I can't make it alone
Thought give up, give up, all up, and I'm left with the sound
Pick up, pick up, pick up, I can't make it alone
Thought give up, give up, on us, and I'm left with the sound of my heart
