Track Name: Minutes
Well the moon is a wound in the sky
(Moon is a wound is the sky)
And it bleeds out into the streets
It lights the way for hearts like mine
(Lights the way for hearts like mine)
It understands the way they beat

And time is just running away I
Wish it could stop
Minutes from hours it doesn't seem a lot what we've got but I
I need it
I need it so bad
Minutes from hours it doesn't seem a lot but it's all we've ever had

I'm caged in like an animal
Darling you set me free

But this town has no charm it's a skeleton
It's certainly no friend of yours or mine
Under rocks and roads and pavements
Buried treasure we cannot shine
(No we can't)

And time is just running away I
Wish it could stop
Minutes from hours it doesn't seem a lot what we've got but I
I need it
I need it so bad
Minutes from hours it doesn't seem a lot but it's all we've ever had

I'm caged in like an animal
Darling you set me free
Yes you do yes you do
Track Name: When I'm With Her
Well it's a clever game to hide in plain sight
Gonna steal away my sunshine to make it my night
I'm hounding you baby
The walls are surrounding us baby
And there's a million things I need to get you alone
But there's this woman I know that waits for me to get home
I gotta get out before you burn this place down
Got my head on the pillow sleeping sound but then

Dream is all I, dream is all I, dream is all I do
When I'm with her
I'm dreaming 'bout you
Dream is all I, dream is all I, dream is all I do
When I'm with her
I'm dreaming 'bout you

I must've lost my mind
'Cause you're the only thing I care about
I need to find something else to do
And I can't search my soul
For anything at all
Knowing that you want me for your man

Just one look in your eyes I get a heart attack
You cried me an ocean so I came sailing back
It's hard to explain baby
I think I'm going insane
And I know I was wrong to make a fool out of you
But I've never been strong so baby what can I do
I've got nothing left to make this thing right
Not even refuge in sleep because every night is like

Dream is all I, dream is all I, dream is all I do
When I'm with her
I'm dreaming 'bout you
Dream is all I, dream is all I, dream is all I do
When I'm with her
I'm dreaming 'bout you

Hey
Track Name: Night & Day
I need your loving arms around me yes I do
Night & Day
'Cause my heart it's bleeding all the time it never stops
Night & Day
And if you need just a favour baby I'll come running right to you
Whenever you want me to

I was lost and lonely until something told me
You feel the same
Now we go to a place to forget this nonsense
And ease the pain
And if you need just a favour baby I'll come running right to you
Whenever you want me to

Is this world so cruel and cold
No horizon to behold
Sick and tired of being stoned
Down the river
Girl you're hard enough to burn
So no more twists and no more turns
No more surprises
Track Name: Halfway
He's always so bold
I must be nothing at all in your eyes
My blood runs cold
I know when you're telling me lies
A fool knows when he's being fooled
A slave knows when he's being ruled
Never before been afraid of the truth
Need to hear it from you now

He's always running to you my girl
And if you meet him just halfway
Then this love is just a game
I'm only halfway in the frame
Things can never be the same no

And I've done all I can
No more cards I can play left at hand
I cannot stand
To know that your grand master plan
Has no room for someone like me
I'm lost like a drop in the sea
The further I sink is the closer I see
How it's going to be now

He's always running to you
He's always running to you

And if you meet him just halfway
Then this love is just a game
I'm only halfway in the frame
Things can never be the same no

'Cause I remember the halfway
Something that never leaves you
I was only asking
I was only asking
