Quiet when I heard your voice Breaking on a breath, beating in my chest, smash Putting on a face for show Now every-time you’re slipping through my fingers I’m losing all the things that I hold Shake me even though I’ll break Leave me in the rain, drown me in the pain, splash Hoping I don’t let you know That every-time I’m gripping to the past cause I’m Too afraid of just letting go Don’t keep driving I’ll settle my, settle my, I’ll settle my debt for you Don’t keep hiding I’ll tether my, tether my, I’ll tether myself to pursuit If Rome keeps burning I’ll take a torch, take a torch, and darling I’ll burn with you Don’t keep driving and confirm what I already knew City never felt so cold Sitting on the stairs, I wasn’t prepared for The shatter that came with the blow Now every night I’m watching sparks turn into fires Shut off eyes, don’t know where you go Don’t keep driving I’ll settle my, settle my, I’ll settle my debt for you Don’t keep hiding I’ll tether my, tether my, I’ll tether myself to pursuit If Rome keeps burning I’ll take a torch, take a torch, and darling I’ll burn with you Don’t keep driving and confirm what I already Won’t lie, I wanna lie with you Don’t move if its not towards me Door closed as sky went blue We bend, we break, we chew right through but Won’t lie, I wanna lie with you Don’t move if its not towards me Door closed as sky went blue We bend, we break, we chew right through but Don’t keep driving I’ll settle my, settle my, I’ll settle my debt for you Don’t keep hiding I’ll tether my, tether my, I’ll tether myself to pursuit If Rome keeps burning I’ll take a torch, take a torch, and darling I’ll burn with you Don’t keep driving and confirm what I already knew

Saw the spirit I drink on a billboard The ghost of you in a record store I danced with both and I cant feel it anymore When the winds of change become a hurricane Blow in through your lungs and out again I’ll hold on to your heart and steel bar frame Oh my love we are getting older Yet I can’t seem to lift my head from your shoulder So we fell into the eye of the storm And watched our bodies fall from their forms Cause I’ve been paralysed, paralysed From time that’s come and gone  Will you walk with me back home Saw the moon fall through my floor last night It gave me the fright of my life And your arms swooped in cradled my bones Like that old armchair in my childhood home Oh my love we are getting older Yet I can’t seem to lift my head from your shoulder So we fell into the eye of the storm And watched our bodies fall from their forms Cause I’ve been paralysed, paralysed From time that’s come and gone  Will you walk with me back home Can you stay a little while longer  (Paralysed, paralysed)  Can you stay a little while longer (Paralysed, paralysed) Can you stay a little while longer  You make me brave, you make me sane, you make me stronger  You make me brave, you make me sane, you make me stay a little You make me brave, you make me sane, you make me stronger  You make me, you make me, you make me

The Mend 04:53
Stomach churning Burning moments long ago Selfish lover You know not the flames you throw While rivers rolling Bodies swept in undertow Tied up thumbs and silent ghosts on my phone Enemy line in my bed  I’ll rile you up again Needle head without it’s thread All the harm without the mend Petty word Become my swollen tongue Answer query With a guarded shrug Build foundations Never meant to move Then you’ll make home only inside of you Enemy line in my bed  I’ll rile you up again Needle head without it’s thread All the harm without the mend

Give Me Time 04:41
Walk down the hall Windows reflecting A strangers face back at me If I was twenty-three Maybe I’d be stronger And I’d be taller than that guy Give me time Give me time I’d jump off this ledge I’d get off this couch I’d live in a house ten stories high I think I lost my way sir But I’m not about to face her Spend your whole life waiting for a sign Give me time Give me time Give me time Give me time Give me time, give me Give me time, give me Give me time, give me love (x4) Escaped one mistake With an inch of your life To land in a house With a kid and a wife Hope you make something of yourself There kid Don’t make the same mistakes Your father did Give me love Give me time Give me love Give me love Give me love

On My Mind 04:19
Come to the junction He asked what's my function Let's not have this debate I saw the future we're gonna be late Remove layer from layer I think I might stay here and I'd appreciate if you stayed too Past brickwork that matches the stale face reactions of those that I've met before Hands in warm pockets and eyes glued to the floor While I was retrieving some light that was leaving a space between two walls I saw the future and erased it all Yeah I erased it (all) Yeah I erased it (all) Yesterday we we're talking Felt something inside me move Said some vulnerability won't kill me or anybody in this room Yesterday we we're laughing like we owned our innocence Suddenly in front of me I saw a house, under a tree behind a white picket fence Still you'd throw it all away Your night not yet turn to day To me your glass was never stained My eyes they cut right through the pain Still we're banking on the down We're betting on the high Walk in and out of night You're on my You're on my mind Yesterday we we're talking Felt something inside me move Said some vulnerability won't kill me or anybody in this room Yesterday we we're laughing like we owned our innocence Suddenly in front of me I saw a house, under a tree behind a white picket fence Still You'd throw it all away Your night Not yet turn to day
