Track Name: Listen Closely
There’s a synonym, more beautiful,
Than the words I can find to describe,
The face thats hidden, under the hair,
On the pillow, near the one that I’m on.

You meet questions, with an ease,
To fall upon your feet.
Undo the laces, on your leather shoes,
They’ll look new until you leave.

If you’re wondering just why we are here,
Listen Closely.
I’ll remind you of all of the things that you are fond of.

You’re on the third rung, not even half way,
With your eyes set on a new height.
Your eyes, they flicker, with a green touch,
As you stare me our solution.

If you’re wondering just why we are here,
Listen Closely.
I’ll remind you of all of the things that you are fond of.

If you lead a lonely life, let your love know,
When you leave your lonely life, let your love grow.

There’s a message coming down from the rooftops,
Could you let me down to sleep in my bed,
I am tired, did you hear what I said?
There’s distance between us, we’ll take distance instead,
Of time, till then I’ll talk to the wall,
Cause she never needed to be up there at all.

If you lead a lonely life, let your love know,
When you leave your lonely life, let your love grow.
Track Name: Please Mend Me
There’s not much in these walls that I could bare to give away,
But the walls themselves, I don’t want, I see them every day,
And I’d like to give you more, than the rubble from my thunder,
Please settle with my well intentioned love.

And I can not do the basics, or complete some simple task,
But I can stand beside you when you ask.

And oh, my love, the world won’t compare,
With the life you’ve created in your dreams.
Please understand, I haven’t yet awoken,
I’m only slightly broken at the seams,
Please Mend Me.

This house is getting colder and my words are getting thick.
The words I use, I don’t want, I crave another pick,
Of better things to tell you, stories that are true
Instead I write a list of things to do.

And oh, my dear, there’s only what’s on offer,
But ask and I promise you’ll receive.
Please understand, I haven’t yet awoken,
I’m only slightly broken at the seams.
Please Mend Me.

This house has just collapsed,
And I’ve just lost some ground.
There’ll never be a perfect, whenever I’m involved,
But I can stand beside you in the cold.

And I can not do the basics, or complete some simple task,
But I can stand beside you when you ask.

And oh, my love, the world won’t compare,
With the life you’ve created in your dreams.
Please understand, I haven’t yet awoken,
I’m only slightly broken at the seams,
Please Mend Me.
Oh, my dear, there’s only what’s on offer,
But ask and I promise you’ll receive.
Please understand, I haven’t yet awoken,
I’m only slightly broken at the seams.
Please Mend Me.
