Track Name: Runners
There was a man atop a hill
He asked if I would go with him but I declined

Now every day I pass his house
He watches me with hungry eyes and says
Girl I will never forget

Now even though I’m gone for good I don’t think he was understood
By anyone

Intentions are so hard to read
And bad things always follow me
So I run far away from them

So I run, run run, run, run, run, run, run

Now even though I walk these woods
There’s things that stalk in
blackened hoods for me

If I just stayed on beaten paths
I should be wise and get out fast
But I’m stuck
Runners can never go back

So we run, run, run, run, run, run, run, run, run, run, run, run, run, run, run, run
Track Name: Going Away
I’m not here, just my body
Resides in the space I occupied
My mind is fleeting
Painted walls cover years gone astray

But then is gone and I’m going away
I’m going away. I’m going away
‘Cause then is gone and I’m going away
I’m going away

You’re not here, just your trembling eyes
On the way that I could hide my own
Long whiles took for granted diverted lives
No longer hooked

But then is gone and I’m going away
I’m going away. I’m going away
But then is gone and I’m going away
I’m going away

But then is gone and I’m going away
I’m going away. I’m going away
But then is gone and I’m going away
I’m going away

But then is gone and I’m going away
I’m going away. I’m going away
But then is gone and I’m going away
I’m going away
Track Name: Space Travels
I know I can’t make me be the one
I like my shoes just fine
No boy is going to take them off

I’ve no way of knowing where I’ll end up
But space travel’s getting better in the dark

I don’t want to fall anymore to get back up
It’d be nice to have someone to hold when I fuck up

I know I won’t be there
‘Cause you said “Please don’t”
But I will always want to know how it goes

I don’t want to fall anymore to get back up
It’d be nice to have someone to hold when I fuck up

No I don’t want to fall anymore to get back up
It’d be nice to have someone to hold when I fuck up
Track Name: Solace
I never noticed before
That the sky and the ocean floor
Go on for miles, and miles

Me? I want to explore
And see if I can walk on that floor
What if I dive down a little more?

Flying must be something I can learn
Birds they aren’t born with the means to soar
And I’ve been told that the world’s my back door

And trees, they look too good holding swings
To be tall and alone in the woods
Oh birds can sing and live in that church

Flying must be something I can learn
Birds they aren’t born with the means to soar
And I’ve been told that the world’s my back door

An eye for and eye, or a leaf for a leaf
Hard I will try but alone I’ll be
But I will find my solace in me
Track Name: 15 Clothier
It’s hard to find these kind of people anymore
All the ones that I adore are right here,
They always said it takes a village to raise a child
And the children are what makes a village grow
I never thought that I’d make this town my own
But I couldn’t find a better place for home

The hands will come if your lifting is too loaded
Or your water’s overflowing in the dark
What you give stays within this ground well-trodden
Coming back around to meet you at the start
You couldn’t ask for a better place than this
Homes the heart and this is where it lives

What you need, is within easy reaching
So much so that you don’t know you’re alone
People you meet don’t know that you’re strangers
They’ll help you if they’re able,
Well I don’t know if I’ll stay my whole life long
But if I go, I’ll miss it when I’m gone, gone, gone

Home is not where your from its where you’re going to and who you’ve become
I won’t leave you behind Home lives somewhere in your mind
Track Name: Benches
Same time same place every day
I will count on the clockwork
Same smile same face holding me
Too bad my dreams are filled with what I long to be

No one has ever told me
That I’m the only one they want to have
I’m terrified of being
The one and only gal

Ahhhhh
You dress me up but you won’t take me out
Hold me up
And I’ll stay there, I’ll stay there

The covers up and the cold is out
The space beside me I could live without
The pillows ready, where your head should be
But its only me

Colours fade as the sun gets strong
Life is short when you think of it
Benches sit all alone
I don’t sit outside anymore

Ahhhhh
You dress me up but you won’t take me out
Hold me up
And I’ll stay there, I’ll stay there
Track Name: Good Eyes
Patience is a game you shouldn’t play
You have better things to do than stay
Bull into the shops and break the china
Don’t think about the livelihoods you’ve bent

Take it as it comes they said
Walk all over you until you’re dead

How nice to not follow that advice
Don’t let the money make your mind
You’ve got two perfectly good eyes
Don’t let the people make your mind

Take everything that your arms can hold
Make sure that you don’t do what you’re told
People are like pawns for you to move
Anger is a drug that you should use

Take it as it comes they said
Walk all over you until you’re dead

How nice to not follow that advice
Don’t let the money make your mind
You’ve got two perfectly good eyes
Don’t let the people take your mind
Track Name: Only That'll Do
Every time you said “to die for”
I felt it fall
The bridge outside leads right to my door
And the Berlin wall

You stood so tall and proud on your own, then you watched the leaving
All alone your fingers trembled solid, and you couldn’t believe it

Time is slowly etching in our faces, the people weve wronged
Like feathers falling slipping through the ceiling our heads are in fog
I wanted me to heal
I wanted you to crawl
I wanted you to feel
The way I did that long long long long
Only that’ll do, only that’ll do
Only that’ll do, only that’ll do
Only that’ll do, only that’ll do
Only that’ll do, only that’ll do

Every time you said “to die for”
I felt it fall
The bridge outside leads right to my door
And the Berlin wall

You stood so tall and proud on your own, then you watched the leaving
All alone your fingers trembled solid, and you couldn’t believe it
Track Name: Round and Round
Round and round the earth is turning
Turning always into morning
And from morning into night
Track Name: Benches (acoustic)
Same time same place every day
I will count on the clockwork
Same smile same face holding me
Too bad my dreams are filled with what I long to be

No one has ever told me
That I’m the only one they want to have
I’m terrified of being
The one and only gal

Ahhhhh
You dress me up but you won’t take me out
Hold me up
And I’ll stay there, I’ll stay there

The covers up and the cold is out
The space beside me I could live without
The pillows ready, where your head should be
But its only me

Colours fade as the sun gets strong
Life is short when you think of it
Benches sit all alone
I don’t sit outside anymore

Ahhhhh
You dress me up but you won’t take me out
Hold me up
And I’ll stay there, I’ll stay there
