Track Name: Let Go
The wind washed me blue, excavated thoughts of you
Prayers sent to the moon, foreign landscapes darkly loom

Chorus:
Let go, let go
Let go, oh oh oh oh oh oh....

The silence of this tune, forbidden loneliness in bloom
The sign of the cross, a sheet of dense, irregular loss

Chorus

Hands in my hair, ragged breath beating the air
Betrayal on your face, another love loses its place

Chorus

Page upon page, hardened silence built the cage
A cry from the dark, meets the deafness of your heart

Years take a seat, rest your tired and swollen feat
You won’t see me no more, no you won’t see me no more,
You won’t see me no more, no you won’t see me no more,
You won’t see me no more, no you won’t see me no more,

Chorus
Track Name: We Were Young
Muggy heat, bare feet, a sweet summer breeze
You caught my eye that rainy night we danced by the sea
We were young and unafraid, and ready to love
With open arms and busy hands, and no concept of
Loss-----

I kissed you then with eyelids closed to block out the tears
To shut away the darker days drawing too near
We were young and brazen then, and falling in love
With strength to spare, and hefty dares, and no concept of
Loss----

Chorus:
Oh no, my love, I just cannot stay
The time has come to take me away
Oh no, my love, I just cannot stay
The time has come to take me away

Science, religion, and desperate pleas
Are not enough to block the dark angel’s needs
We are young, and so afraid, gravely in love
With hurting hearts, and failing parts, a deep knowledge of
Loss----

Oh no my love I just cannot stay
The time has come to take me away
Oh no my love I just cannot stay
The time has come to take me away

We were young and so afraid, gravely in love. With hurting hearts, and failing parts, a deep knowledge of loss.
Track Name: Irish Wanderer
Down the Liffey the river runs
Past the land I’ve called home
Towards the flocks in the fields
Cross the ocean to land at your heels

Chorus
I would wander far and wide
Just to glimpse your lovely eyes
For tomorrow and for tonight
For the beauty of your eyes

I would climb the cliffs of Mohr
Trek the Causeway’s rocky shores
Cross the prairies and wheat fields too
I would cross them all to get to you

Chorus
I would wander far and wide
Just to glimpse your lovely eyes
For tomorrow and for tonight
For the beauty of your eyes

I will speak these works to you
In whichever way you choose
I would hold you and buy you gifts
Get every item on your shopping list

Chorus
I would wander far and wide
Just to glimpse your lovely eyes
For tomorrow and for tonight
For the beauty of your eyes

Down the Liffey the river runs
Past the land I’ve called my home
Towards the flocks in the fields
Cross the ocean to land at your heels

Chorus
I would wander far and wide
Just to glimpse your lovely eyes
For tomorrow and for tonight
For the beauty of your eyes (repeat the last 2 lines twice)
Track Name: This Lonely Space
I wrote him again, words from an empty drone,
I swore I wouldn’t, that I could learn to be alone

Challenged to forgive, and told to forget
Can’t manage to dispel my hatred yet

Chorus:
In this lonely space where love used to live
I know it’s useless I’ve got nothing left to give

Everything now’s about proving a point
Don’t even know who I am, he’s got me all out of joint

Pushing the line, tip-toeing on the edge
But he’s still got the power to push me off the ledge

Chorus:
In this lonely space where love used to live
I know it’s useless I’ve got nothing left to live

Bridge:
It’s simple science really, called spotlight attention
Looking at the same scene with different perceptions

I saw a horse, and you saw a frog
Instead of kissing it you ran from what you saw...

Now I’m a micro-expression, to little to see
Devoid of feeling, struck by this hollow disease

Pushing through people to hide from the pain,
To distract from the fact that it will never be the same

Challenged to forgive, and told to forget
Can’t manage to dispel my hatred yet

Chorus:
In this lonely space where love used to live
I know it’s useless I’ve got nothing left to give
Track Name: The Ties That Bind
The ritual of undying love, the secret's out to care about
The judge's thrown to cast a bone, to turn away more lonely days

Chorus:
The ties that bind, the sacred lines
‘tween truth and lies, my sacrifice
The shadow of your flickering love
Too many times, the ties that bind

The deepest low, the darkest show,
A loop repeats and sounds defeat
The choice to make, ‘tween love and hate
The ritual of undying love

Chorus:
The ties that bind, the sacred lines
‘tween truth and lies, my sacrifice
The shadow of your flickering love
Too many times, the ties that bind

Bridge:
Walls that stand, ‘tween longing hands
‘tis easier than this sinking sand x2

Instrumental Break

The drummers hand beats harder than
The stares that find my aching mind
Nerves will fire, transmitting wires
To mess about and conjure doubt

Chorus:
The ties that bind, the sacred lines
‘tween truth and lies, my sacrifice
The shadow of your flickering love
Too many times, the ties that bind

Bridge:
Walls that stand, ‘tween longing hands
‘tis easier than this sinking sand x2
Track Name: Sleeping Giant
Save your batteries, I'm running with the bulls today
You're not a veteran but you act like one

Oh...

Chorus:
I watched you tunnel through my heart
I didn't see you start
But now you're here to stay
Even though I'm far away
I wasn't looking for what I found

The problem hides in the solution
I want to tell you everything
That runs through my head
Was I someone special too

Chorus;
I watched you tunnel through my heart
I didn't see you start
But now you're here to stay
Even though you're far away
You weren't looking for what you found

I want to touch your sleep
Re-align our resting places
I'm scared if I keep breathing
I won't see you leave

You woke up a sleeping giant....
