Track Name: Pull Over
One hand on the wheel -
ribbons of smoke lit by the dash
Watching your profile as the night outside slips past
I never thought I'd meet you
I've been alone for years
Tomorrow is not promised
But we have right now, right here

Pull over
Pull over and kiss me
This could be something real
Just for tonight - for once in my life
I need to feel like I'm in love

You're like a crystal: sharp as a blade if held too tight
Beautiful colours of ruin and bliss if left in light
It's good to finally meet you
I've been alone too long
Tomorrow is not promised
And yesterday is gone....

Pull Over...

You're a handful of smoke, a scent on the breeze
A meteor in the night I was privileged to see
You'll be gone in a second, but I'm marked for all time
I know I can't keep you -
but this one night you're mine...
Track Name: Pieces of Light
If you feel a tickle down your spine...
I whispered your name out the window
To reach across the night
'Cos I hope you'll hear
And no, I can't go home again
And here I am, alone again
I think I might have found a little courage had I known it then...

Every word I write is for you
Every song I sing is for you
Every time I close my eyes
I see a different version of you
Every night I pray
I'll find the one note that will make you
Shatter into pieces of light....

Autumn knocks me down
Into gold and crimson falls
Of memories on the ground
Looking back, I see it all so clear...
I chickened out, I ran away
I should have kissed you on that train
And now I'm trying to take that single moment back again

Every word I write is for you
Every song I sing is for you
Every time I close my eyes
I see a different version of you
Every night I pray
I'll find the one note that will make you
Shatter into pieces of light....

Shatter into pieces of light....
Track Name: I'd Give Anything
All my pretty secrets - scattered in the street
The heart I really needed - shattered at my feet
And I'd give anything...
I'd give anything
I'd give anything to let it be...
I'd give anything to finally learn to breathe...

Eyelashes and sunbeams - strewn around the floor
Dusty souls and old dreams - dancing by the door
And I'd give anything...
I'd give anything
I'd give anything to brave the storm
I'd give anything to make it back to shore

But I packed my bag of ghosts up
And vanished into air
I wanted you to chase me
You thought I didn't care
And I'd give anything...
I'd give anything
I'd give anything to make this fair
I'd give anything
I'd give anything....
I'd give anything to really dare - to love...
But I know anything
Will never be enough
Track Name: Barstool Socrates
Lost at ten years old
Torn away from home
Now a ghost, you roam
Through a lonely world...
Living stories told
In the books you hold
Motherless and cold -
Little boy, you're hurt...

Dreaming - a head full of pictures
And you don't need any more lectures on love

Someday you'll face
You're not so safe from a distance...

Barstool Socrates
Would you spare me, please...
Don't you know you're easy
To see right through?
Crazy restless nights
And every heart in sight
Is just a peak too high
For poor old you...

So you stroll your minefields of pubs and beer
Stone blind - callous and cavalier love

Someday you see it's not quite real enough
Someday you'll face
You're not so safe from a distance
Track Name: Mirrors
If I could show you with my hands
What I think when you're near me
I'd rather not bring up the subject
It's too human for words 'cos I love you
I just love you...

Please have a little faith in me

Never doubt I love you
I never want to hurt you
But hold me down and I might disappear
Never doubt I need you here
More than anything else in the world
Anything else in my soul
Don't make me let you go...

It's not easy living here at the edge
Of the real world
And better unsaid is a promise
That I might not fulfill
'cos I love you
I just love you

Please have little faith in me

Looking in each other's mirrors...
