Track Name: Trillion
don't let your guard down
there's a thousand ways to fuck this up
don't give up now
see it through and hope for the best
there's nothing here that we can't fix, that can't be helped
there's no place to lay the blame, there's no way out
don't let your guard down
there's a thousand ways to fuck this up
don't give up now
see it through and hope for the best
let time take care of the rest
there's nothing here that we can't fix, that can't be helped
there's no place to lay the blame, there's no way out
this time i'll come home armed to the teeth
prepared for the worst but hoping for the best
you can't bring it back
it's time you trust in something new
Track Name: At Your Feet
i'm an open wound, i'm a burning book
i'm a broken record when i'm with you
but i want to be your super hero
i want you to trust in me to save the world
i've seen enough to know that when it starts to go it almost always goes
every night, almost every time
from every side it's just a waste of time
i've seen enough to know that when it starts to go it almost always goes
and i know that you know that i'd set myself on fire
i know that you know that i'd set myself on fire
Track Name: Safety in Numbers
you wake up asleep
you wake up asleep
noone will ever know how little you really show
never been good at letting go
noone will ever know
it broke my heart
i push too hard
i guess that's a start
it broke my heart
your shape it means the most
you make the brightest ghost
all wet and here for show
your shape it means the most
you make the brightest ghost
all wet and here for show
Track Name: Feast of St Anthony
voices collided in foreign tongues, echoing down the alleyways
from your hotel window, saw what was left of the night stretching up to meet us halfway
you would not back down
the buildings sat languid across the skyline outside, splayed out against the boot black night
as your legs hung crooked off the bed, I knew that I was not misled
but I just stared out upon Lisbon and slowly lost my nerve
Track Name: Follow You Home
all your doubts can wait outside
so we can go indoors and appreciate the warmth
i'm not going away
i will follow you home
just to make sure you are safe
and i'll return every day
good morning, i missed you
i've been up all night hoping to find a reason to be here when you wake up alone
it haunts me. i know it haunts you too.
i'm not going away
i will follow you home
just to make sure you are safe
and i'll return every day
Track Name: Trampoline
you have a way of finding a way out
ways most other people never think about
all your avenues are endless, most don't even start
the end and the beginning never far apart
the finer things you've come to know
don't mean anything all alone
buried in the backyard of your humble home
i know you're far away
and that there are more then miles between us
but if you say the word
i'll be right there with my bags packed
the finer things you've come to know
don't mean anything all alone
the finer things you've come to know
don't mean anything all alone
