Track Name: Gulls Hovering
Don't be fearful
Life is only half complete
Seen from here
Love is near

Late spring morning,
Sky is dawning
No-one here has much to do
Save for you

Gulls hovering
Far from the coast
Sky red, Sky blue.
Track Name: Islands
I went walking in the stream
I dreamt of Islands floating too
I went walking to the dawn
I dreamt the morning dripping through
I see you come and see you slide.

Is it any wonder, the picture in the frame,
Leaving nowhere to call your own again?

I went stumbling down the hill
I dreamt the evening in the sky
Flowers falling at your feet
And on the ocean drifting by
I see you come and see you slide.

Is it any wonder, the picture in the frame, Leaving nowhere to call your own again?
Track Name: The Light Of the Sun
There's no easy way to cry
There's no easy way to say goodbye
All you feel is lack of light and laughter
Are we further from the ever after?
Have you even read the rules?

And the light of the sun Shines on you and me
The light of the sun Makes no demands

The love that you are just grows and grows and grows
There's no easy way to love someone
There's no easy way to hold someone
In the moment where you least expect it
Something's growing if you'd only let it
If you'd only let it be

And the light of the sun
Shines on you and me
The light of the sun
Makes no demands
The love that you are just grows and grows and grows
The love you share burns light on the air
The love you hold back goes to waste.

And the light of the sun
Shines on you and me
The light of the sun
Makes no demands
The love that you are just grows and grows and grows
Track Name: Song For Matthew
Rain soaking fields and the dust on the leaves
And the road to the lake and the note by the trees
You in the grass with an eye on the past
And a calling from St. Jerome.

I often tried to kill my soul
The lonely part that kept me wanting to be whole
That lead me down under the wheels.
Morning trembling to the thrill of birds in flight
Pancras on the middle path of autumn light
Old love ties you to a wheel of compromise and hate
Spun by hands we only see when it's too late
That leave you locked in stone.
Track Name: All the Leaves Are Gone
Far beyond dry land
I tried and failed to understand
How you see it from your point of view
Can you point me where we're going to?

All the Leaves are gone

You were standing by the launderette
Wearing clothes you hand't washed yet
You were waiting very patiently
Like you'd always wait for me.

All the Leaves are gone

As a child I looked to you
I tried to learn from you
What it was the world really saw
What you were loving for
All the while

All the Leaves are Gone.
Track Name: No Use
I wanted the sky to fall on me
And all its dazzling harmony
Take me apart
There's nothing in my heart

Cos it's no use in loving someone who just doesn't need to be loved
It's no fun in holding someone who just doesn't need to be held.

I made a mistake in loving you
What I compelled myself to sit through
For so long
With nothing going on

Shows there's no use in loving someone who just doesn't need to be loved. It's no fun in loving someone
who just doesn't need to be loved.
Track Name: Love Kills All Fear
It feels new
Even when it's not
And then it hurts you
Even what you got can hurt
Through compare of lovers past and present
'Til you find

Love Kills All Fear
Love Kills All Fear

The heart breaks
The tide can be too much to take
The lead lines
The avenue of dreams you fake
The false tries, the educated guess you can't deny

Love Kills All Fear
Love Kills All Fear

You can't hold on to yesterday
You can't hold on to tomorrow
And all your joy and sorrow
Goes rolling back

'Til Love Kills All Fear
Love Kills All Fear
Track Name: The Ride
Late in the morning looking for the sky
I picked you up and we went for a ride
You said 'how are all these situations unravelling'
I'm living in another's skin.

You were asking the answer
And the question I replied
Asking the answer with your eyes
You were asking the answer even then.

The road lead onwards to the dawn
Beneath a sky stripped of form
You said 'If love is real why does it hide?'
I'm looking with another's eyes.

You were asking the answer
And the question I replied
Asking the answer with your eyes
You were asking the answer even then.

I'm hooking the world around my shoulder
Time stretching the line between you and me
I'm hooking the world around my shoulder
Time stretching the view between you and me.
Track Name: Beginning The World
When you know
The words of others show
Nothing of yourself
Their approval don't count for nothing.

When you please
Run around and please all the others
And leave yourself alone
How cheap do you feel?

Well I know
All of this will end
And be worth nothing
All the riches you could spend
- Nothing - So be sure to hold a little back for yourself
You might need it.
