'Tomorrow Again'

THE PLACE I WANT TO BE///​

Old town seven times erased 

Crawled out from the pyre again

This is the place I want to be

Is the place I’ll fall 

 

Silkworm spin a thread for me

No waste, nothing left that I don’t need  

Yours is the face I want to see

It’s the place I’m warm

 

And I won’t turn my back on this 

Though I never knew that I wanted it 

Bough bent beneath my weight 

I’m broke

In my own

Kinda way

 

It’s magical

And I’m allowed 

To see it straight

I’m older now 

It thawed me out 

It’s in my wake 

 

This is the place I want to be

It’s the place I’m yours

This is the pain I longed to feel

You’re the place I’m home 

 

I won’t turn my back on this

In The Seams'

INTRO - SORRY///

 

I've made considerable mistakes

Tried to be someone else

I've smoothed the creases from my face

Fought a war, for myself    

I could say that I was sorry

Without losing face 

But I'm far too proud to let this go

 

You say simplicity is key

But my head, won’t believe

I'm complicated to a tee

Lose a thread, roll a sleeve

 

I could say that I was sorry

Without losing face 

But I'm far too proud to let this go

 

I could tell you not to worry

‘bout your number in the race

But I'm far too proud to let you know

LET IT GO///

 

Every second I get older there's a line

I get down and pray for time

Every moment is a boulder being fired

Every night a day has died

Let it go, you can't try to race it

Don’t you know you don’t have to face it

Keep your head don’t be misled to waste it

 

Run away with me

 

I'm a sinner cos I'm led by vanity

Someone come and save my soul

Say the word and I will take you down with me

Somewhere we can both grow old

 

Let it go, you can't try to race it

Don’t you know, you don’t have to face it

Keep your head; don’t be misled to waste it

 

Run away with me

Just run away with me 

Run away with me

Just run away with me 

 

I don’t know what to do about this any more

You know sometimes I forget I’m alive

And then it hits me in the night 

 

When I realize it’s

Too dark and it’s too light

And it’s too loud and it’s too too bright
And it’s too hard

Too long to be on your own 

Run away with me

Run away with me

Run away with me

Run away with me

 

INTRAVENOUS/// 

 

Summer lays in field and fern

There’s no return from what you learn

 

Leaves behind a keener burn

I'll drink to you tonight

 

Intravenous, intravenous

Come to me undissolved

 

Intravenous, intravenous

Take on this whole

 

There’s never any medicine in sugar pills

But I have grown addicted to your high

There's heaven in an innocently given will

I'm craving for a love that's simplified and pure 

 

Winter, wise, in sleep we find

We dream, we fall behind

 

Intravenous, intravenous

Come to me undisguised

Intravenous, intravenous

Open my eyes

 

And all I really care is that the sun will rise

‘Cos I can find a certainty in light

In younger days I couldn't find the compromise

But now I understand that you were right 

And everything around us will regress to this

Depending on each other for a high 

There’s only you and me to make the best of this 

And everyone outside can stay behind the door 

 

 

BANG////

 

Let’s go out with a bang

Steal a car let the sirens sing

You keep your keys by your side

Cos you are only here for the ride 

And you couldn't care less if you tried

 

Would you turn me in?

Like a chime leave my name to ring? 

Well I couldn't care less if I tried

I couldn't care less if I tried

 

‘Cos I know your pain, and I can take it away

I'm not the same, I'm special baby 

Yeah

 

Tongue tied and torn

Spit it out, what you come here for? 

Open house for the dead

Saw the sign, saw the light go red

 

But I couldn't care less if I tried 

I couldn’t care less if I tried 

 

‘Cos I know your pain, and I can take it away

We’re one and the same, this is my favourite game 

I know your pain, comes around like a tired old refrain

Let’s blow it away

Let's go out with a bang 

I REMEMBER///

 

I remember when we were skin and bone, tough and cruel  

But bruises brown and fade away  

Trinkets in a coat pocket stolen from kids at school

Burned a hole and fed a shame

Someone should have told you that you'd always have a place to go

Uh oh I thought you would have known  

Someone should have told you that you'd never find yourself alone

Uh oh, we lost you to the snow  

 

I remember when we would hang about in hollow trees  

New sounds, sitting smoking leaves

Walking past boarded up windows kept you down

Shit town, knew you couldn't breathe  

Someone should have told you that you'd always have a place to go

Uh oh I thought you would have known  

Someone should have told you that you'd never find yourself alone

Uh oh, we lost you to the snow  

 

Or maybe you climbed out after all  

I didn't wait around to see you fall

Found you on facebook soft and warm    

You must have known it. You must have known it.

You must have known it. You must have known it.

NOBODY DIED///

 

Hey

Anybody know the way back where I'm from?

Too much freedom has sent me dumb

Ooh, try to kid yourself you knew it all along

But the right was becomes the wrong one

 

But hey, we're ok my friend

Nobody died in the end

And the stupid things won’t matter in the light

So hold tight

 

Ooh did you ever think it's you they're looking for?

But they don’t knock upon your door?

Day becomes the night and once again

Light a candle it never ends

 

But hey, we're ok my friend 

Nobody dies in the end

And these stupid things don’t matter in the light

Wait, you're ok my friend

Nobody dies in the end                     

And these stupid things won’t matter in the la la la light

So hold tight

DEVOTION///

 

Sisters in threes

Pilgrims from overseas

Borrowed belief

Garlands and bilva leaves

 

On hands and knees 

Crawl to a saintly scene

Crazy to me

I don't see what they see

 

Gasoline dreams

Raging against machines

Peaceful release

Marigolds mark the street

 

Eyes for the blind

No question in his mind

Knots intertwined

Can't quite believe it but

 

I wanna feel devotion

Feel devotion

I wanna feel devotion

Feel devotion

 

Scrolls from the sea

Gods tied to cosmic trees

Arrows and spears, preachers and pioneers

Cubits of stone

Make walls for a wailing on

Stories of home

Bring people comfort so

 

I wanna feel devotion

Feel devotion

I wanna feel devotion

Feel devotion

A WORD///

 

I’ve been thinking about you today

I've been working out what you would want me to say 

Put the words in an order that works

Leave out the sharp ones that might make you hurt

 

You know I’ve never been good with words

Things I mean to say tumble out stuttered and slurred

Now I'm standing here racking my brain

You've gone and made me lose my thread again

 

Hooooooooooo

I prefer silence to being unheard

Hoooo I can be kind without saying a word

 

Maybe you could just gimme some time

Understand it's not easy to make this all rhyme

Though the rhythm comes slowly to start

I can't just seem to get all this by heart

 

Maybe I just don’t have what it takes

Maybe you could just put up with all my mistakes

Not exactly a sweet serenade!

But I need you near me and words only complicate 

Oooh I prefer silence to being unheard

Hoooo I can be kind without saying a word

 

 

JAMES///

 

Wake up

James it's dark out 

Stand your ground now, use your will

Shape up, knocked you spark out

Every winter, you fall still 

Always, looking inward

Never knowing , who to be 

These things, never matter

When you're older, you will see 

 

That it's easy to forget

The moments that descend

It's easy to forget 

The time

 

Mittens, knitted for you

Kept together by a string

Football on a white field

You could never quite fit in 

 

It's easy to forget

The moments that descend

It's easy to forget 

The time

Memories through a window 

See him falling time again
 

 

ST MALO///

I've been proud of my place

Taking the back streets  

Not an easy thing to do

Listen to me now

I’ve been out in a crowd

Beating the bounds in and   

 

It's never been easy

Bough from the willow tree  

Keeping the birch off me

It's never been easy

 

Take me walking if you go

Round the walls of Saint Malo

Knights in houses either side

One a secret, one a bride

Tell me stories as we go

Round the walls of Saint Malo

 

I can hear them whispering

As the night bird starts to sing

 

I've been counting the worms in the woodwork

Not an easy exercise, listen to me now

 

I am humble and know

Keeping my eyes low but

 

It's never been easy

Bough from the willow tree

Keeping the birch off me

It's never been easy

 

Take me walking if you go

Round the walls of Saint Malo

Knights in houses either side

One a secret, one a bride

Tell me stories as we go

Round the walls of Saint Malo     

I can hear them whispering

As the night bird starts to sing

 

Take me walking let me go

Round the walls of Saint Malo

By the window she will stand

Broken body in her hand  

No more song of sweet sorrow

Round the walls of Saint Malo

Bind her heart in golden thread

For her nightingale is dead

 

'Union'

 

MERCY///

 

C’mon open your eyes

You’re my explorer

Searchlight

Dark night

Calling out for your mercy

 

C’mon and shoot me again

You are my hunter

You read my mind my friend

I’m calling out your mercy

 

Ooh

You are my history boy

You’ll be my future

Gold sands

Spade hands

Calling out for your mercy

 

When you’re falling

I will follow you down

A mile of smiles to the ground

Calling out your mercy

TIGHTROPE///

 

I walked a tightrope without a care

The crowd took pictures, I walked the morning air

When I was falling, you held my hand

I heard you calling as I returned to land

 

You acted like you knew me

You acted like you knew me and I knew you

 

I went to pieces there in your arms

You straightened creases, you brought me back from harm

I ask no questions, you pin no blame

And when I'm restless, you set me free again

 

You acted like you knew me

The others see right through me

But you acted like you knew me and I knew you

REASONS///

 

There's a light on in Union Street

Burning holes in with its fire and heat

Well let it melt the skin from my feet

Won’t stop me walking home

 

I am laden but strong enough

For loving hard and fighting rough

Knock me down and break my bones

Wont stop me walking home

 

I got reasons

(This is where we meet, this is Union Street

this is how I want you to remember me)

I got reasons

I got reasons

I got reasons

 

I can see that the water's deep

But I have taken a running leap

Well they can weigh me down with stone

Won’t stop me swimming home

 

For I am laden but strong enough

To carry on when things get tough

I'm not sure of where I roam

But I know I’ll make it home

 

I got reasons

(This is where we meet, this is Union Street

this is how I want you to remember me)

I got reasons

I got reasons

I got reasons

 

For you, I'd dance alone

I'd turn into stone for you

I'd cry my eyes blind

I'd lose my poor mind without you

I'd stop all the clocks

I'd live in a box just with you

 

THIS AIN'T NO HYMN///

 

It depends on surface area

Whether you do, whether you don't

Climb a mountain, run a thousand miles

Grab on and hold, grab on and hold

 

It's a myth to behold, it's a fire in the cold

Grab on and hold, grab on and hold

It's a snake in the grass, it's a stop sign to pass

Grab on and hold, grab on and hold

 

Oooh

This ain't no hymn

This ain't no hymn

This ain't no hymn

 

This ain't no hymn

This ain't no warning to run from sin

This ain't no dagger for sticking in

 

So let me be

So let me be

So let me be

 

So let me be

I'll follow something that I can see

I'll worship something that I can be

 

It depends on you and you alone

Whether you do, whether you don't

Don't believe in more than flesh and bone

Grab on and hold, grab on and hold

 

Oooh

This ain't no hymn

This ain't no hymn

This ain't no hymn

 

This ain't no hymn

This ain't no warning to run from sin

This ain't no dagger for sticking in

 

So let me be

So let me be

So let me be

 

So let me be

I'll follow something that I can see

I'll worship something that I can be

 

FALLEN TREES///

 

Dried wells and fallen trees

Breaking Ice and poison seas

All these things I'm told could end my world

Sunlight and missing shields

Flooded plains and blackened fields

All these things I'm told could ruin my world

Statesmen and lawful thieves

Short term gains and hidden deals

All these things I'm told could end my world

 

Ain’t it time we had a saviour

Someone beautiful, beautiful

Were in need of a redeemer

Someone wonderful wonderful

 

Air Power and rapid streams

Sailing ships and solar dreams

All these things I'm told could save my world

Small feats and bigger dreams

Greater goods and less machines

All these things I know can change my world

But as far as I can see

There's no one watching over me

No one who could come and save my world

 

Maybe I could be a saviour,

Someone beautiful, beautiful

Maybe you could be our leader,

Someone wonderful, wonderful.
