Track Name: When We Are Young (We Run and We Run)
When we are Young (We Run and We Run)

I saw you standing there
All without a care
Smoking a cigarette
On the stairs

Though the music’s loud
You will turn and say
Now’s the time for us
To be on our way

Chorus:
‘Cause when we are young
We run and we run
We run and we run
When we are young
We run and we run
We run and we run
We run and we run
When we are young

Open roads to drive
And we will drive all night
Wind up on a beach and
Build a fire

Golden flames will die
And dance in your eyes
I will sing you songs
I stole from Desire

We’ve still got time
We’ve still got time

‘Cause when we are young
We run and we run
We run and we run
When we are young
We run and we run
We run and we run
We run and we run
When we are young

So let’s leave it there
Find out if we care
You can take a year
And see what’s there

And when we get back
If everything has changed
I’ll just be a face
And you’ll be a name

We’ve still got time
We’ve still got time
We’re out of time!

‘Cause when we are young
We run and we run
We run and we run
When we are young
We run and we run
We run and we run
We run and we run
When we are young
Track Name: Corrugated Heart
Corrugated Heart

Let’s go back to the space in-between
When I was there but couldn’t be seen
You were a dream that I would keep hid
And we will meet yeah, 25 years from now.

When you’re born with a corrugated heart
The rain gets in right from the start
Patch it with blood and angel wire
And never forget you’re made of fire

Take me back and I’d never believe it
That we would be joined at hip and the seasons
There would be infinite reasons
But you would stay and I’d never believe it, man.

The girl with the corrugated heart
Who loved you right from the very start
Patched you up with love and angel wire
And never forget she’s made of fire

When you’re born with a corrugated heart
The rain gets in right from the start
Patch it with love and angel wire
And never forget you’re made of fire
Track Name: She Don't Mind
She Don’t Mind

Up all night
I was talking to the dark and
I’d make it right
If it would leave me half alone, so

Let us try
Leave it as an understatement
That I find
Words can’t do the half of it, but
You are in the end
The coin I’ll never spend

She sees right
Knows I’m only faking it, but
She don’t mind
She knows that I don’t have a clue
What I should do
Except about you

When it’s time
Leave me at the home for aged
And I won’t mind
My mind will be so far gone by then
There can be no regret
But my heart will never forget
Track Name: Will You Light a Candle?
Will You Light a Candle?

When the day arrives
Will you be beside?
And will I have a chance
To say goodbye?

And later on that night
When everything is quiet
Will you light a candle?
Will you leave it alight?

Will you light a candle?
Will you light a candle?

You will be alive
And I will be alive
At least in the spirit
As the poet would divine

A year to the day
Will you find the way?
Will you light a candle?
Will you leave it alight?

Will you light a candle?
Will you light a candle?

I am to die and you as well
I am to die and you as well

If you listen hard
You can hear the shards
Of glass
Deep in my heart

Put there by age
Despite the page
And the words
We know by heart

Will you light a candle?
Will you light a candle?

I am to die and you as well
I am to die and you as well
I am to die and you as well
I am to die and you as well
Track Name: Can I Belong to You?
Can I Belong to You?

Let’s take a train we’ll leave for Spain tonight
Wake up in a town we don’t know
You can you get the news you need on the radio
Leave a note we’ll take the window
You can be the nurse, I’ll be your Hemingway
And we’ll never run out of things to say

Can I belong to you?
Can I belong to you?
Can I belong to you?

Let’s take a plane to Prague, it’s Xmas Eve
We can dance upon the old bridge
The lights are on we’ll find a room in town
You can watch TV, we’ll order in
I will bite my tongue until it’s time to go
Cause there is this thing I really need to know

Can I belong to you?
Can I belong to you?
Can I belong to you?
Can I belong to you?

Let’s take your car we’ll go we’ll leave tonight
Take our time we’ll take the coast road
You can get the news you need on your telephone
But your friends won’t even notice that you’re gone
Track Name: Seven Hills
Seven Hills

When you said you were dead
And we were through, do you
Recall the words you used?

I was there and I surmise
That you were gone alright
And then you left again

And so we start again
We build up from the end
And though you can’t believe your eyes
We will rise again like the bird from a fire

This life is not to live
It’s just to give away
To one you don’t despise

Take me down to Seven Hills
Make me drink from river stills
Make me live another day

Fill the trench with barbed wire
Spiteful tongue and ire
And we will never part

‘Cause a captive audience
Will take what you give them
If you can sing right through the pain
You’ll take us back to the place where we know each other’s name
Track Name: Umbrella Skin
Umbrella Skin

I don’t believe that I will really die
Don’t believe in my parents
(They’re breaking up now too)
And don’t you know that I called time
On your list of loves and on your list of sheets
(We’ll never sleep on twice)
On the list of hearts
Burdened by your feet

But can I just make a scene
In front of your funny friends
We’ll make a time
To grieve
All the injuries

I don’t believe but I can surely try
Be the man that you think I am
But it’s all wrapped in ice and golden lies
Umbrella skin we’re living in

But can I just make a scene
In front of your phony friends
We’ll make a time
To grieve
All the injuries
Track Name: The Light
The Light

Silence comes, like, a rolling storm of old
Though I do try to find the words for you, they don’t
Bridge the clear line, they fall flat and die
And in your blue eyes, I search but cannot find

I don’t know about you but I long to see…
I don’t know about you but I long to see…
I don’t know about you but I long to see…
I don’t know about you but I long to see…
The light

Chasms of the mind, in the heart and in your bones
Like the grand tides, they take more than you know
Can we not lie across this terror divide
And let your life become one with mine

I don’t know about you but I long to see…
I don’t know about you but I long to see…
I don’t know about you but I long to see…
I don’t know about you but I long to see…
The light

There is no why in beauty, and yet
There’s a straight line to the day we met
Let us string lights, in our garden of love
And we will yes, find, that we have enough

I don’t know about you but I long to see…
I don’t know about you but I long to see…
I don’t know about you but I long to see…
I don’t know about you but I long to see…
The light
Track Name: This is How it Ends
This is How it Ends

This is how it ends
Time is not your friend
Despite the way it bends
And I am not in love
I am not in love

But I know this
We may never know the bliss
That we had on that island
We made out of the tides
We made out of the tides

Will you dump my body when you take
Me out to sea or in the lake?
Or drag me up by my feet
And let the vampires
Have their way with me

Did you ever doubt
That I have known for years about
The time you set alight the house
Left the building burning bright
I never dropped a dime

And then a year will pass
We’ll say it went so fast
And when it comes to write this song
On you, will it be the last?

And will you recognize
I told the truth almost every time
I though I really tried
I could hardly find
A way to make you wrong
