Track Name: Paradise
Tired eyes and thoughts that scatter
I’ve been so restless for a while
Lost the course with no direction
Missed the target by a mile
While I dream
I dream of when the days of holding back
And all this talk can cease
Oh I dream
About a place where time it goes to rest
And we can be at peace

Ooh paradise

Roads that curve and bridge too narrow
For the both of us to fall
Water seed and soil too shallow
For anything to grow at all
So I dream
Dream of when the days of holding back
And all this talk can cease
Oh I dream
About a place where time it goes to rest
And we can be at peace
Track Name: Don't Bury Me In Love
With my last breath
Waking the once departed
Talking to god
Mending the brokenhearted

Before I leave
Will any clarity bequeathed
Stay with you or follow me?

Don’t bury me in love
Don’t carry on and on
Don’t bury me in love

As I approach
My final destination
A shooting star
Some distant constellation

And I concede
That any clarity bequeathed
Will stay with you not follow me

Don’t bury me in love
Don’t carry on and on
Don’t bury me in love

All of this serpentine surrender
All of our subtleties collide
What happens to all of the answers
All of the love we leave behind
Track Name: Wasted Light
When does tomorrow become today
I’m not too sure should I just play it safe?
And keep on working until I’m dead
I’ll save the living for inside of my head

This wasted light
Caught in the meantime
Take what I can
Stuck in the meantime

My own inestimable jest
From some undigestible mess
The times and winds they are a changing face
No better age to save a human race

This wasted light
Caught in the meantime
Take what I can
Stuck in the meantime

This beautiful life of ours we share
Just like some beautiful dream
This beautiful life of ours we share
Is like some beautiful dream
This beautiful life of ours we share
Just like some beautiful dream
Track Name: Restless Soul
All I care to pretend to know
Your false signs of hope are just for show
Unsure times await
Hard choices make or break us all
A lifetime away
A moment to say

My restless, breathless soul
I just want one more song before you go
My restless, breathless soul
You left us too soon to know

The first one to fall will tell you so
There’s less left to lose in letting go
In good times and bad
Impostors are had and treated so
A lifetime away
A moment to say

My restless, breathless soul
I just want one more song before you go
My restless, breathless soul
You left us too soon to know
Track Name: Skeleton Key
Come and fire walk with me
Tell me just how bad your luck can be
Take a breath and rest in peace
Rest in peace

When near is far enough away
Save your promise for another day
Spend it on a wretch like me
Wretch like me

And it feels like I’m getting old
The sun is warm but the nights get cold
I might be lost but i’m dressed up in gold
Dressed up in gold

Take everything you need
I’ll be your skeleton key
The promise on the breeze
Take everything you need
I’ll be your skeleton key
Would you follow me?

Tell your friends a little lie
Excuse yourself and join me outside
Meet me by the edge of the road
Together we could be bold

We’ll find ourselves a little space
Where peculiar is common place
Somewhere kind of out of the way
Somewhere to stay

When it feels like we’re getting old
The days are long but the nights get cold
We might be lost but we’ll dress up in gold
Dress up in gold

While the sun is still our friend
Just making time for us to spend together
Never coming down

Take everything you need
I’ll be your skeleton key
The promise on the breeze
Take everything you need
I’ll be your skeleton key
Would you follow me?
Track Name: All We Do
I know
It’s only conversation
To follow all that’s in your sights
Free from trials of expectation
The dizzy enchantment of great heights

Seek the divine in your reflection
The subtle grace in imperfection

In all we do

Dream on
Embrace a little rapture
Save your tears for darker clouds
Find yourself in all this action
Fashion despair into light

Seek the divine in your expression
The subtle grace in imperfection

In all we do

All over reaction
All over sadness and in truth
All in all there’s something pure and true

In all we do
