Track Name: Bridges
No direction
The colour of my path, is traced all in black
All the focus, drains from the picture
All that remains, is grey and tear stained

Start racing back to the stars
'Cause apparently that's where you land if you miss the moon

I'll cross that bridge when you come to it
Those who aim, have something to miss
Something to lose
I'll try my best, but I'll hope you knew
Each day I was dying thoughts of losing you

Heart always a winner
But never a keeper
Always the same lines
Plenty of times I'll take the salty wound
Over something that tries to hurt me inside

Start racing back to the stars
'Cause apparently that's where you land if you miss the moon

I'll cross that bridge when you come to it
Those who aim, have something to miss
Something to lose
I'll try my best, but I'll hope you knew
Each day I was dying thoughts of losing you

Don't you fall now
Don't you fall now
Don't you fall now
Don't you try now
I should go before it burns

I've played the fool
Many times before
Am I wrong to want more?
I think its time for a new role
No fatal blonde
No big white horse
My turn to show that I will

I will
I will cross that bridge when I come to it
Track Name: Stained Glass Heart
Those first hours
Only ours
Silent glances
Rain on my shoulders and now

Now I can't say I've felt this before
No, I will stay to hear more because

You see through me like a stained glass window
Now I can't pretend to be unaffected anymore
No no no no no no

Your hands were cold
You wrapped mine in yours
When those words fell from your lips
I would have waited a thousand years for this
And now

Now I can't say I've felt this before
No, I will stay to hear more because

You see through me like a stained glass window
Now I can't pretend to be unaffected anymore
No no no no no no

I tried dimming the lights
But the switch must be broken
And now
Now my stained glass heart
Is yours for the taking because

You see through me like a stained glass window
Track Name: The Island
I was stuck in no man's land
Feet stuck in the sand
My eyes were wandering from the shore

Soon I looked out to the sea
Made a discovery
That I wasn't all on my own

Oh no
My world was on fire
But you taught me to swim
Man made desire a will to fit in

Calculating day by day
How things have come to change
Since I first left my island for you

My world through a stranger's eyes
Brought me to stranger tides
A brand new version of the truth

All alone left to survive
Soul didn't recognise the truth
When I laid eyes on you

Softer than the water's touch
Faster than the rush of floods
No fear but that of losing you

Calculating day by day
How things have come to change
Since I first left my island for you

My world through a stranger's eyes
Brought me to stranger tides
A brand new version of the truth

Oh no
My world was on fire
But you taught me to swim
Man made desire a will to fit in

Calculating day by day
How things have come to change
Since I first left my island for you

My world through a stranger's eyes
Brought me to stranger tides
A brand new version of the truth

The may say no man is an island
But I know that's not true
Were were both islands
You know you know you know you know
'Til tectonic plates moved

Calculating day by day
How things have come to change
Since I first left my island for you
Track Name: Goodbyes
Travelling back from Los Angeles
She had a ring around her finger
Dream in the pocket of her jeans
She said 'Mum I've got to tell you,
I'm leaving to be free'
She said 'Becca, you're only sixteen'

Goodbyes are always saddest when they're sudden
'Cause the pain tends to last
And I know we both said we'd be back in a while
To give it another chance

But you and I know its not that easy
To let go, of the past
Goodbyes are always saddest when they're sudden

Rosie always came here on Saturdays
She'd wear her best blue dress
Even in the rain
Laid a bunch of peonies down on his grave
'I can only stay 'til three'

Goodbyes are always saddest when they're sudden
'Cause the pain tends to last
And I know we both said we'd be back in a while
To give it another chance

But you and I know its not that easy
To let go, of the past
Goodbyes are always saddest when they're sudden

You were in the kitchen making a third cup of tea
I was in the doorway staring at my feet
You came around the corner and you looked up at me
And this is what you said

You said
Goodbyes are always saddest when they're sudden
'Cause the pain tends to last
And I know we both said we'd be back in a while
To give it another chance

But you and I know its not that easy
To let go, of the past
Goodbyes are always saddest

Goodbyes are always saddest

Goodbyes are always saddest when they're sudden
