Track Name: Opener
As the world becomes a little smaller than it was before
I thought I saw you yesterday, but now I see you more

There's a light inside that heart of yours which never got to glow
A little light of summer starts to show, mid-winter
A little light of summer starts to show

As the world becomes a little smaller than it used to be
I understand the love between the people that I see

There's a meadow in this heart of mine which never got to grow
The lines are gone, the cracks begin to show right through me
The lines are gone, the cracks begin to show right through me
The lines are gone, the cracks begin to show
Track Name: Something That I'd Like
Wake up in the morning light
Never have to wake too soon
Never have to wait for coffee
When you've got an automated brewing machine

So rest, my darling
Wait, my darling
You know you'd say the same to me
I'm only trying to paint a scene of summer

We've got a good thing going
You know that we've got another sweepstake
A good thing going
You know that we've got another sweepstake
Maybe this could be out break
Maybe this could be out break

I can smell another loaf
We can have our friends to stay
You can pick your favourite numbers
And win the jackpot every day

So guess, my darling
Wait, my darling
Everything it yours to keep
I'm only trying to paint a scene of summer

I've got a good thing going
You know that we've got another sweepstake
A good thing going
You know that we've got another sweepstake
Maybe this could be out break
Maybe this could be out break
Track Name: God Song
I can't wait to see you darling
But you wait for me
I can't wait to hold you darling
But yours is love that I can't see

Alone in a crowd
And singing the songs you sang to me
Remembering how

All I can hear is the sound of the voice in my head
And the ripples affecting the shape of the slowing river

All I can see is an ever-changing colour wheel
The shape of the world goes round and round

All that I know are the words to the script I'm shown
Everything else must go together

I tried hard to talk about it
And pushed it aside
I tried to communicate it
But yours is a love I can't describe

Alone with you now
And singing the songs you gave to me
Remembering how

All I can hear is the sound of the voice in my head
And the ripples affecting the shape of the slowing river

All I can see is an ever-changing colour wheel
The shape of the world goes round and round

All that I know are the words to the script I'm shown
Everything else must go together
Track Name: Promises
I've made promises before
Standing at my door to let you in
Someone's standing in the back
Hoping that I crack and make a scene

There ain't no easy way out
There ain't no easy way out
I'll leave you at the door

I've been talking in my sleep
All the words I'd like to speak to you
Something's standing in the way
Making me ashamed of all I do

There ain't no easy way out
There ain't no easy way out

I'll stay with you
And take me wherever you go
But stay with me
And show me whatever you know

Because I wanna find out
Oh yes, I wanna find out
I'll leave you at the door

I'm embarressed by the cards I'm holding in my hand
I played to win
Passing over what I owe
Walking out to go and play again
Track Name: To've Never Loved At All
I believe if anybody cared that much for me
They'd only end up lonely and aggrieved
Cause love is for the others
Who hold eachother close and walk away from me

I don't want to tell you that I love you
A broken heart's a price I can't afford
Although I'm thinking of you
It's better to've never loved at all

I believe if anybody handed me the key
The world of love does not belong to me
The sunset on the harbour
Is something I would rather keep away from me

Why, why don't I hold you like the others?
I'm scared that I will break you if you fall
I'll keep you at a distance
It's better to've never loved at all

Why don't I call you?
You're always around
World full of laughter
I can't make a sound

In a dream I vividly recall us holding hands
A day of love that I could understand
I'm seeing you on Sunday
I'm hoping maybe one day I can break this spell

I don't want to live a life of silence
A lonely kind of safety in these walls
Remind me that I told you
It's better to've never loved at all
Remind me that I told you
It's better to've never loved at all
Remind me that I told you
It's better to've never loved at all
