Track Name: Where Once Were Roads
As we walk where once were roads,
we’ll talk to strangers about our woes,
sympathise on common ground
as we never could,
before the snow it filled our eyes,
with the blindness of its light,
reflected from the sky above,
forcing us to talk.

The gifts we leave to mourn those past,
will take stock into the ground
and flourish beside where once were roads,
as they never could
and as we walk where once were roads,
we’ll talk to strangers about our woes,
sympathise on common ground,
as we never could before.
as we never thought we could before,
well, we never talked before,
why did we never talk before?

We go by every day,
without a word to say,
to the passers-by,
who make up our lives.
Track Name: Dancers in a painting
I drew a picture on your wall,
so you’ll always have a view
If it’s dark outside and you feel scared,
you’ll always have a view
and all the things you love the most,
will show themselves in there
and change the picture from day to day
as so much changes from day to day.

So a different picture every day,
depending on how you feel
and each one may appear short lived
but then so much is...
and all the friends you love the most,
will dance together in there
and change the picture from day to day
as so much changes from day to day

All the people dance together
Hand in hand they hold each other
No one asks much of the other
Know that nothing lasts forever.
Track Name: School Friends
As we count the stops that stop us on our way
do you count the stops to wish away this day?
As we sit here alone saying nothing...

Problem is I don’t know who you are, anymore
problem is I don’t care who you are,
or what you’ve become.
there’s so many things you’ll never do
so many places you’ll never go to,
so don’t just sit there and let regrets wash over you.

Get out my way, please do,
now that we’re older and wiser.
Get out my way, please do,
now that we’re older and wiser.
Get out my way, please do,
now that we’re older, wiser...

There’s no one better than you
at being you... so just be you.
There’s no one better than you
at being you... so just be you.

There’s no one better than you.
Track Name: Bubble Clouds
I wrote some words for you,
but they were twisted blue,
So I covered them in light, and they floated away.
In the sky they found,
all the clouds around,
were also made of words that had floated away.

There are threads coming down from the sky,
Each one leaves its mark on our lives,
Don’t be scared for they’ve always been there,
Find out, which one you are,
Find out, which one you are...
