Track Name: Your Boat
I wanna see your boat float across that sea
I want it to be just you and me
I know there’s someone else who haunts you to this day
But if you let me I’ll be yours and here to stay

All my life, I’ve never met someone like you
On my life, I want to be the one with you
You’re alive, in a way I can’t deny
Because I can see you

I know you seek a newer way to be
You’re breaking down doors I cannot see
You’re frozen in a world where you can’t stand to be
You’re hoping time will tell a tale you can believe

Head for open sea
Join with me today
Waiting there I’ll be
Hoping you will stay
Track Name: Today
There is a man we all know
He walks the thin night air, he plays his own tattoo
And what he has to say, we all need to hear
But we fear what we see

Today I remembered who I am
It was a revelation I had
Somewhere on the way to Cairns
I came to

Whenever I see his face, I see truth
He tells me where we go when the curtain comes down
He leads me in the strange cycle of possibilities
Without knowing why, I let myself fall, and let myself be picked up

I stumbled through the fields of grass
And my body twitched like dawn at the glass
And the ground rose up beneath my feet

Caught by a cry I came up
In a bright mirror I saw my home
And I put out my hand
Track Name: When You Said
You said, you’ve got a new job
All is well that ends well
Happy endings aren’t so hard
You’ve got firm hands, and it pays well, oh it pays well

When you said that you would call,
Did that mean I’d never hear from you at all?
When you said that you’d come ‘round
Did that mean you’d disappear without a sound?

You said, you’re getting better every day
The doctors all say, you’re on the mend
You’ve come a long way, from just one year ago
What you’re wondering, is when it ends, when will it end?

What about the time
You came back for more, had me knocking at your door
And what about your dream
You were so keen, for me to treat you mean
What about the time

And when you said, that you were mine
Was it all in my own mind?
And when you left, was that because
You didn’t like what I’d said?
When you left
When you left
Track Name: The Fall
We come to our senses
But only when we fall in the end
We claw at each other
All the while knowing it’s wrong

We do what we have to
Just trying to get by

We go to our graves
Fanning the flames
Of our illusion
We come to it all
After our fall
We’re tossed and broken

The end comes for us all soon
Might as well live while we can
What if we forgot the future?
And made a bet
On what we know now

And held on the moment
For as long as we can

We take our time but we don’t know
Just how fast our time will go
But we won’t get a second sip
Of this full cup, we’re bound to miss
Track Name: Trying To Get Clean
You don’t want to grow, any more
There’s no need to grow, any more
Who wants to be an adult anyway?
Look what they did to you

You were happy as a child
Before the nightmare began
If only you could get back
You could change everything

Now you’re trying to get clean, where you’ve been
No-one should have to go
You’re trying to get clean, what you’ve seen
No-one should have to know

If only you could, know why
It felt so sickly sweet
Each new man reminds you still
Of that one man you’d like to kill

Waiting such a time such a long time gonna be a
Fine time when you finally get your peace of mind
Today’s gonna be a brighter day
When you get a chance to move ahead and let it all fade away
