Track Name: Dust
The ground is shivering
Awakens the dust in your delicate heart
We share a perfect faith
We close our eyes when we kiss

In the quiet sighs
As you breathe in slow
I can hear you sing
Don't give up, please don't

I will not lose your love
I will not run
I'll continue to fight
You are my open eyes
The colour of my landscape

If it tastes like a secret
Then it must be a secret
It's balancing rhythms on forever
Just visible

I will not lose your love
I will not run
I'll continue to fight
You are my open eyes
The colour of my landscape
And the dust in my heart
Track Name: The Art Of Healing
All my friends they ask for you
My home is by the river
There are two sides to the truth
And love forever echoes
I have known that tenderness
From eyes just like a fortress
And a heavenly poison

It's how you look at me sometimes
Collapse into the moment
The joy of questioning the night
A million different answers
I have known that loneliness
From words that never surface
And a hopeless devotion

We are balancing desire
With the promises we keep
How are we supposed to tell ambition go to sleep?
It's how you look at me sometimes

The art of healing is a gift
And love is an adventure
We are learning to forgive
My home is by the river
I have known that endlessness
Of hope that never falters
With my best friends

It's how you look at me sometimes
Track Name: Armies Of Weird
This is not trouble, this is not hurt
We are all just seeds scattered in the dirt
But we grow strong with every single hit
We are not jaded just used to it

You're so good with your tongue or so you say
I was your beautiful boy but now i'm ok
You were so wired, I was so numb
You said you were better than everyone

But I won't be your last to know
The arrow in your crooked bow
You can't love too much and that's a fact
So what I'm over-dramatic and you over-react

I wonder where is this promised land
Where the good run free of the worlds demands
This is not now, there are no saints
Just armies of weird who barricade the gates

A happy soul put the devil in you
Track Name: Not Only Scars
You laughed and half admitted
You were the most cynical girl in the world
It's our secret, no one suspects anything

As we were deep in conversation
I caught you retracting a smile
But your eyes said it was only intended for me

These nights are etched on my memory
My dreams are further away
Not only scars

Open doors, the taste of summer air
Reminds me of streets where I once was a child
Funny thing is now it only reminds me of you
It only reminds me

These nights are etched on my memory
My dreams are further away
Not only scars
I just act, a statue or acrobat
Imagine you looking back
Not only scars

A blessing of a tender love
(Deserving of attention)
I watched it fade from blue to grey
(As you eclipse devotion)

Open doors, the taste of summer air
Reminds me of streets where I once was a child

Imagine you looking back
Not only, not only scars
Scars, scars
Not only, not only scars
Track Name: Sometimes I Feel Like Norma Desmond
Don't stop, keep starting over
I know it hurts, I know it hurts

There's that familiar stare
The one you always rely
To turn them all to stone
The struggle loosens your grip
But stubborn hearts they deny
How the world sees their future

We're not alone, we are blessed
To have known the turning of tides
In our eyes there are sparks not confusion
We don't wait in a line for redemption

Don't stop, keep starting over
I know it hurts, I know it hurts
Don't stop, keep starting over
I know it hurts, I know it hurts

The replay of past highs
Them wrong turns, them goodbyes
Now silent old memories are flickering on '35

Don't stop, keep starting over
I know it hurts, I know it hurts
They said "You lost it."
Track Name: As Tender As Enemies
The night is all over me
I'll tear it down
Before we run out of time
As tender as enemies
I count your bones
As you take shelter in mine

There's no need to wrap yourself in silence
You loved me in my darkest hour

This is our secret sky
We breathe in sharp
All that temper desires
Swim in its viciousness
You count the stars
While I kiss them goodbye

But I'm such a boy
The river to your sea
I didn't give up on you
I just gave up on me
It's so good to hear your voice
To know you still believe
To know that you're listening
That you still harbour my dreams

I count your bones
You count the stars
Please don't wrap yourself in silence
You loved me in my darkest hour
I count your bones
You count the stars
Please don't wrap yourself in silence
You loved me

I count your bones
(The night is all over me)
You count the stars
(As tender as enemies)
Please don't wrap yourself in silence
(Tender, tender)
You loved me in my darkest hour
