Pull Over 04:43
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...

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....

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

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

Mirrors 05:07
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...
