Are you thinking? is she close? do you struggle with umbrellas? are you leaving? are you home? have you timed this badly? have we met before? are you staying? did you fall? can you count to ten in German? can you whisper? can you lie? did you design your own website? have we met before? are you sleeping? are you wise? what can you see from your window? are you hungry? are you calm? are you on a great adventure? have we met before? are you reading? did you choose? can you see into the future? are you listening? are you scared? will you know it when you see it? have we met before?

Pictures of a face Descriptions of the day I don’t know what to say about that Pictures Pictures of a face Descriptions the day He walked away It was raining And this pain in your heart never went You never said It would feel this way and I want you to stay That’s not what I meant to say But I mean it I mean it Yeah right There’s your honesty Honestly, I’m feeling fine Intelligent design Line of eye-shadow tears and more wine I don’t mind if I do Do you like my new shoes Mums, dads and home truths Like: what are we going to do about you You used to be such a happy child You dialled the number Didn’t speak How do new lovers meet Incredible feats Of bravery Wavering baby steps favouring Wild mood swings We were never not quite on the brink Not trying to not think Of missed connections Missing links Rose tints It’s just one of those things Imagining you It’s just one of those things we do Things things So many things So much to say Lonely strings Catch the bouquet Hey hey Here’s your soulmate Spinning plates One topples It’s too late It breaks Industrial estates And a canvas of cannibals of our entwined fates So let’s find a place To be complete Find names we repeat Find signs in the names of her street And when you sleep It’s still there Always there In a necklace of amber Take care Of your paint and your brushes You know the way she is The way she pushes A greater weight than a lifetime of crushes Playing back the day’s rushes Here’s the scene where you see him And you don’t know what to say And I don’t know what you say about that Pictures of a face I don’t know what to say about that Descriptions of the day He walked away I suppose Some boys Spend their whole life joking Reading lines like karaoke And opening wounds Tombs Visiting unspoken rooms In the Crowlands No romance No shall we dance Circumstance Limping men with beers cans Fortunes old hands Reading lines of love, life, good times and pretty bad plans Plots and parades Every day Every night The end was always in sight And when it ends It never ends It descends Into the centre of the earth Wish this curse Could be lifted Sometimes the world makes me feel like I never existed And I existed When she was laughing Pictures of a face I don’t know what to say about that Fortunes old hands Overrunning the land with you When you were laughing When she was laughing

We're all a bit scared, we're all a bit scared but don't be wet, don't be wet, don't be wet. I've been running, mostly nowhere, but don't be wet We're all a bit scared, we're all a bit scared but don't be wet, don't be wet, don't be wet like a flannel I've been chasing mostly nothing, but don't be wet I've been running mostly nowhere but don't be wet We're all a bit scared, we're all a bit scared but don't be wet, don't be wet, don't be wet like a flannel

It's nice in the morning, it's nice in the morning. I've got butter on my bread i've got thoughts in my head. Its nice in the morning, it's nice in the morning I got the sun on my toast, i got the sun on my toast. It's nice in the morning. It's nice in the morning. The Quiet is the king, the breeze it does sing. You're nice in the morning You're nice in the morning You gaze into your brew Oh the morning was builtfor you. Its nice in the morning, Its nice in the morning I got my butter on my face She's got smiles on her face We got morning all over place

Southern man who grows and knows about plants. Are you ok? Are you ok? The man who lies in fields is dying slow The boy who talks to trees is on his own Every road is just a field you know All the nice things lie beneath. Southern man who grows and knows about plants. Are you ok? Are you ok? The man who sows the seeds is dying The boy who wonders by the moons glow Most of this was never meant you know All the nice things lie beneath. Southern man who grows and knows about plants. Are you ok?

Was it worth it for the view. It all looked good from up there. All the roses were in bloom. There was pollen in the air. It all comes and goes. It all comes and goes. All these woes. I put three daisies in the notebook And watched the petals all fall out. It made a mark upon the paper. A mark that could not be rubbed out. It all comes and goes. All these woes. All these woes.

There's no escape but i'm looking out and i'll sit because i'm tired i'll never see you again but i've got a picture of us I put my finger on my head so i can just see you Let me be ,something dies every day and i've got plenty of hours I put my finger on my head so i can just see you Every silver lining has a cloud

He knew all the waves Some of them by name He kept them in a book One he called 'time' And time was with him again Forming on the left What if this voyage would take him to death And if this was the end There was so much he wished, he wished he had said.

I didn't walk how you said i should walk, i walk how i do walk, and that's fine I didn't go how you said it would go, it went how it did go, and that's fine. I look out the window somedays,i see a million ways and that's fine I didn't dance how i wanted to dance, i did a bit of prance and that's fine Take your guess, spurious at best, can't you see its all just chaos. I breathe in and then i breathe out, i've got a trillion doubts and that's fine I took a road that wasn't a road but it was something i chose and that's fine. Take your guess, spurious at best, can't you see its all just chaos. Take your guess, spurious at best, can't you see its all just chaos. I didn't go how you said it would go it went how it did go, and that's fine. Take your guess, spurious at best, can't you see its all just chaos.
