Track Name: The Dolphin Song
I had two real friends, every time they climbed my fence
Oh I know that I belonged
See the tips of the trees from my red trampoline
I was on top of my little world

Oh every now and then, I wish I was a ten year old

I had a sister and when she had some spare time to spend
She could always count on me
We’d dip our toes in the pool, icy cold on the ledge
Then she’d push me off the edge

Oh every now and then, I wish I was a ten year old
There’s something beautiful in the way a kid can see the world
I wish I could depend on the kindness flowing from that girl
Oh every now and then, I wish I were ten.

Dolphin dive into the water
Feel it on your skin, forget about the cold
Dolphin dive into the water
Feel it on your skin, forget you’re getting old

Dolphin dive into the water
Feel it on your skin, forget about the cold
Dolphin dive into the water
Feel it on your skin, forget you’re getting old

Dolphin dive into the water
Feel it on your skin, forget about the cold
Dolphin dive into the water
Feel it on your skin, forget you’re getting old

Dolphin dive into the water
Feel it on your skin, forget about the cold
Dolphin dive into the water
Feel it on your skin, forget you’re getting old

Dolphin dive into the water
Feel it on your skin, forget about the cold
Dolphin dive into the water
Feel it on your skin, forget you’re getting old

Dolphin dive into the water
Feel it on your skin, forget about the cold
Dolphin dive into the water
Feel it on your skin, forget you’re getting old

Dolphin dive into the water
Feel it on your skin, forget about the cold
Dolphin dive into the water
Feel it on your skin, forget you’re getting old
Track Name: With No You
Can we please just be friends like we were at the start
When my rose coloured glass was new?
Can we please take it back to a time I knew nothing
Of this life I now live with no you

With no you, With no you
I don’t know what I’ll do with no you
With no you, With no you
I don’t know what to do with no you

I’m still wrapped in all of the memories
Of you holding me to sleep

I’m alone I’m afraid
I don’t know what I’ll do
With myself in a world with no you
I don’t know what to do...

With no you, With no you
I don’t know what to do with no you

If I threw away all our memories
Maybe I could sleep in peace tonight

When I sit on the couch
There’s no-one to talk to
I’m alone in the room with no you
I don’t know what to do...

With no you, With no you
I don’t know what to do with no you
With no you, With no you
I don’t know what to do with no you
Track Name: Darling
Why are you out this late Darling?
You should be warm in your bed Darling?
In your colourful sheets, dreaming sweet dreams, Darling

Darling, Darling
Darling, Darling

Might have to bite your tongue Darling
Walking at midnight alone Darling
Your heartbeat’s a drum but your shadow’s a gun Darling

Darling, Darling
Darling, Darling

Every star is an eye Darling
They watch as you cry Darling
They wish you the best
Then they leave you the rest

Darling, Darling
Darling, Darling
Darling, Darling
Darling, Darling
Darling, Darling
Darling, Darling
Darling, Darling
Darling, Darling
Track Name: Hopeless in Love
Got no sleep cause I’m in love
Getting down too low
Got cold feet cause I’m in love
Freezing every single toe

I’m a sailor
On a sinking boat

And I wish I could stop, thinking of this
Love that I have for you
How long will I take
I’m hopeless in love
I’m hopeless in love with you

Remember when we’re in love
And you’d hold me in a heap
In my bed we’re in love watching each other breathe

And I
And I

And I wish I could stop, thinking of this
Love that I have for you
How long will I take
I’m hopeless in love
I’m hopeless in love with you
I’m hopeless in love
I’m hopeless in love with you

Trying to pick me up
Trying to pick me up
Trying to pick me up
You drop me down

Trying to pick me up
Trying to pick me up
Trying to pick me up
You drop me down

Trying to pick me up
Trying to pick me up
Trying to pick me up
You drop me down

Trying to pick me up
Trying to pick me up
Trying to pick me up
You drop me down
Track Name: Extreme Highs
Living in a house with 9 plus 1 is pretty fun
Your kitchen’s full and you are buzzed
Because you have so many friends that you can’t microwave your mug and they
Will make your face and stomach ache
Seven months are great then out the blue
Who would bother with a birthday party no would show up to

It’s extreme highs to extreme lows
It’s extreme highs to extreme lows

Some days I get worn down so paper thin
I blow around like I’m a lonely feather in the wind
And all my friends are all weighed down because their bones are made that way
I hear them laugh, I hear them play but I cant stick around and stay

Cause my extreme highs to extreme lows
It’s extreme highs to extreme lows
It’s extreme highs to extreme lows
It’s extreme highs to extreme lows

I must be in the upside-down I’m getting overwhelmed again
(I must be in the upside-down I’m getting overwhelmed)
I’m a faulty elevator that can only land on one or ten
(I must be in the upside-down I’m getting overwhelmed)
There has to be a reason and that reason must be on my end
(I’ve just been crying in my bed I know that they can tell)
I’m a faulty elevator that can only land on one or ten
Track Name: Caveman
This is a song about what I wanna do for a week or so
Go out into the forest and drink some real mountain dew
From the river flow
Catch a fish and cook it like a caveman
Sleep outside to feel like I’m a brave man

I wanna go outside
I wanna go outside
I wanna go outside

It’s a perfect little picture I put up in my world of thoughts
When I am worrying
An open window in a crowded space
A dream one step away
Fresh air fresh everything
I could climb the tallest pine tree in the forest
To see the world through the eyes of Pocahontas

I wanna go outside
I wanna go outside
I wanna go outside

Oh man, let's go back to basics
I know a better place to go
I know when I spend time in nature
Lightning, it strikes me in the soul
Do we belong out in the open?
Do we belong beside the sea?
If I ran away forever
Don’t come running after me
Track Name: Take Me to Harley Street
Waiting for my hope to die so I can move on with my life
Help me find my way home
Ruined all my favourite songs with one love story that went wrong
Help me find my way home

Take me to Harley Street and they’ll remove my cold heartbeat
And help me find my way home

Poisoned by my human brain, I bit the apple once again
Help me find my way home

Take me to Harley Street and they’ll remove my cold heartbeat
I’ll tap my red shoes once or twice
Cause you can’t see yellow bricks at night
Help me find my way home
Somebody help me find my way home

Take me to Harley Street and they’ll remove my cold heartbeat
I’ll laugh I’ll smile then after a while
My heart re-breaks, a failed retake
It won’t help me
Somebody help me find my way home
Track Name: Painting of a Trench
Today I draw a line under the sand
A trench to mark a splitting of the land
Like a chainsaw cutting down the middle of an old willow tree
It pushes against the human in me

Barbed wire to secure my place
Slogging away at a parapet
It’s a pretty filthy way to be
My clothes are wet
Stones in my shoes
Dirt on my knees

Here in a hole is a lonely girl, making herself lonelier
Here in a hole is a lonely girl, making herself lonelier
Here in a hole is a lonely girl, making herself lonely
Track Name: The Innocent Girl in the Blue Dress
A girl lies in the distance
Hidden by a bed of clouds
How the innocent of faces
Has been trained to be a hound

When she hears a whistle
She will answer to its call
Just a brainwashed ammunition
That was made to do it all

Ohhh, the blue blue dress is gone
Ohhh, your girl is on the run
Ohhh, Ohhh
Ohhh, your girl is on the run

I think I’ve found forgiveness
But pity might just be enough
Cause the girl that wore the blue dress
Is still gonna rough me up

She’s barking at the window
When I stand outside the gate
And she’ll kill a little rabbit
Even if it’s just for game

Ohhh, the blue blue dress is gone
Ohhh, your girl is on the run
Ohhh, the blue blue dress is gone
Ohhh, your girl is on the run
Ohhh, Ohhh
Ohhh, your girl is on the run
Track Name: If You Really Loved Me
If you know it’s raining
You wouldn’t wear a t-shirt
If you found a precious stone
Then you would keep it
If you really loved me
You would never leave me
Everybody knows it’s all the same

You put your favourite picture
In a silver locket
Keep it wrapped around you
So you can keep it safe
If you really loved me
You would never leave me
Everybody knows it’s all the same

Cause you can say that you love me all you want but
If you really loved me
You would never leave me
Everybody knows it’s all the same

If you bought a puppy
You’d stare at it in wonder
It’d be cruel to never touch her and keep her locked away
If you really loved me
You wouldn’t do that to me
Everybody knows that’s just insane

Cause you can say that you love me all you want but
If you really loved me
You wouldn’t do that to me
Everybody knows that’s just insane
Track Name: A Lifelong Pursuit
Love is not a card, it’s not a card that you can play
To make all of your bad decisions go away
Love is not a plaster or a band-aid that you put
On a nasty wound to hide its nasty looks

Oh love is hard oh love is hard, that’s how you know it’s love
A lifelong pursuit that’s supposed to build you up
But when hurts, it really hurts, each fall is fifty lashes
I hope to stick out to see beauty in the ashes

My favourite superhero is the Priest from Les Mis
Cause when he gets screwed over he just offers more to give
And even through his character I’ve only seen on screen
I hope that there’s a possibility it could be me

Oh love is hard oh love is hard, that’s how you know it’s love
A lifelong pursuit that’s supposed to build you up
But when hurts, it really hurts, each fall is fifty lashes
I hope to stick out to see beauty from the ashes

So I stared at you, I stared at you, I stared you in the face
Until I couldn’t talk and my hands were shaking
Then freedom, freedom, freedom stole me away
And a single tear made an oasis
How can you love without forgiveness?

So drive your car, and buy your flights
and write the cards you need to write
Talk your talks and hug your hugs
Make sure you love the ones you love
Rip the band aid, punch the wall
Pull the curtain, hear the call
Talk your talks and hug your hugs
Make sure you love the ones you love
Make sure you love the ones you love
