Track Name: Slippers To A Wedding
You've fallen asleep live on air, again, while the world's listening
'Oh here comes the weather report' you thought you'd said, but you're dreaming

Sometimes life escapes our grasp when we're not looking
You've just arrived in slippers to a wedding

I'm locked out the house, with only seven hours to kill
'Oh here comes the snowstorm, perhaps I'll build a fire until
My knight in shimmering armour arrives, smiling'
It's all too much, can't keep myself from crying

We're trying

Sometimes life escapes our grasp when we're not looking
Where am I? I keep forgetting
Track Name: Beneath The Shadows
Beneath the shadows,
Cold concrete and steel bear the weight
The waiting, the hunger,
Under her smile, bittersweet

The forced conversation
Without a word
We all knew what'd happened
The sorrow endured
But in the apartment,
A halcyon light filled the air

She told us a story of magic and truth
It burst from her heart, and it lit up the room
Though no longer with us, she'd witnessed him there
Beneath the shadows
Beneath the shadows
Beneath the shadows

There's never a minute,
This caged bird can't sing her own song
Forever and ever,
Invisible, holding her tongue

The ambush insistent, the infinite grey
A palpable longing right from the doorway
But in the apartment,
A halcyon light filled the air

She told us a story between salty tears
Her one true love lost; no answer through prayer
Though no longer with us, she'd witnessed him here
Beneath the shadows
Beneath the shadows
Beneath the shadows
Track Name: Along The Lonely
Sing me a lullaby, and hold me close
Take my hand, and I will love you most

Kiss my forehead when I’m asleep
Take me out to dine, and I won’t peep
Yeah I won’t peep

Cause you make me feel so good along the lonely
Yeah you make me feel so good along the lonely
Yeah you fill my cup right up, along the lonely
Among the lonely
Among the lonely

Don’t forget the date that we first met
I saw our future flash through my head
I could be the one to save your seat
Now the battle’s won, I won’t peep
Yeah, I won’t peep...

Among the lonely
Among the lonely
Track Name: Circles
Hold her, tell her no lies
Unfold her, while she closes her eyes
Enrapture, carry her home
Captured by the beat of your drum

Therein lies a secret
Will you be the one to keep it?

Listen to the sound,
Keep it going round and around and around and round
Softly to the end,
Keep it going round and around and around again

Catch fireflies as they glow
And never, ever let go
Circling, they collide
As your heart beat, close to mine

Therein lies a secret
Can you be the one to keep it?

Listen to the sound,
Keep it going round and around and around and round
Softly to the end,
Keep it going round and around and around again

'Til it runs right out
Until there's no doubt
'Til it runs right out
Go around and around and around and around and around again
And around and around and around again
Track Name: When I Hold You In My Arms
When I was fifteen, I had a temper
Slammed doors, told lies
I couldn't distinguish wrong from right
What good would it be to make new life like mine?

But now I am older, and hopefully wiser
I find you here, kicking my bladder
And I won't mind you making me fatter
As long as you are mine

(Chorus)
When I hold you in my arms
The puzzle piece lost in my heart
Will suddenly reveal
Itself to us
When I hold you in my arms

And when you are troubled, and life is a worry
I'll take your hand, so long as you let me
And I won't mind you throwing up on me
For you'll always be mine
