Track Name: Universe
In the summers where I used to walk
Stars were shining too
Sunshine washing over bare white limbs
I could hardly wait to go

When the night would fall I’d see the sky
Galaxies galore
And I’d only want to run and climb
I could hardly wait to grow

But now the spring has come
And I am all alone
Green emerges by my window
Only want to go home

Bruising knuckles in this brave new world
Measuring the sky
Holding hope for something grand
Watching time go by

I remember days of warm light winds
Happiness and joy
Sunburnt skin and scraped up knees
Days that can’t return

But now the day is drawn
And I am all alone
Sunshine bursting through my window
Only want to go home

And if you were to behold me now
No longer a child
Trying hard only to carry on
But I don’t know how
Track Name: Mirror
A mirror where I can’t see myself
It’s clearer to everybody else

Ooh

Come down to the end of the lane
An ocean I only see from pain

I can’t believe it

Maybe today I’ll get out of bed
Maybe today I’ll be dead
Maybe it doesn’t hurt enough yet
Doesn’t hurt enough yet

I’m here to leave me on my own
In tears and softly sniffling sounds

Ooh

A mirror where all the lines are drawn
It's clearer when it's finally gone

How is this real

Maybe

Maybe today I'll drown in regret
Maybe today I'll forget
Maybe it doesn't hurt enough yet
Doesn't hurt enough yet
Track Name: The Floor
If you heard the shouts that come out of my house then you might understand
If you knew how loud, how loud it could sound from the top of the stairs
But I'm on the floor again
It never ends

I'm trying to say that this is the way and approach that I know
Time and again we will scream and defend till the last drop of hope
But I lost control again
As if it I had it then

See if you can imagine the view from down here
And my twisted arms are nothing to how helpless I feel
Tell me that I got what I deserved
Tell me that it’s my own fault of course
Tell me using words

I thought I could trust in the single most lasting impression you made
I thought it was us facing the rest, wrapped hand in hand
But I'm on the floor again
It never ends

See if you can imagine the view from down here
And my twisted arms are nothing to how helpless I feel
Tell me that I got what I deserved
Tell me that it’s my own fault of course
Tell me that it’s high time that I learned
Tell me using words
Tell me that I got what I deserved
Tell me using words
Track Name: The Mess
My hair says more of faded years than age
My memory goes and with it my stories

My nose will grow until my dying day
My ears will too, will you still like them then?

Oh goodness I’ve run out of room
There’s not a bit of space for you
Objects of mine in every corner
This mess has nearly taken over my head
My head

Do you get caught in simple mindless games?
Do you move on as quickly as you claim?

Do you wish I were older than I am?
Do you admire me for the way I shine?

Oh goodness...

Bridge

Should I let go and throw out what I’ve found
Should I choose to ignore you when you’re loud

Should I spread out and then consolidate
Should I spend hours to sift through everything

Oh goodness...
Track Name: New Wind
Lift up your head and smile
You love the rain as much as I do
Just as you say you’re tired
You’ll catch a new wind to blow you on through, once more

It’s easy to play the child
I know it well, I’ve been there myself
What do we think we’ll find?
Playing gives everything that we could hope for

Ooh you are everything I love

Lift your head to the sky
Drink up the rain and think of nothing
Good doesn’t mean not hard
Remember the days you’re most regretting, and hold on

Ooh you are everything I love
