Universe 02:51
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

Mirror 04:18
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

The Floor 03:09
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

The Mess 03:57
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...

New Wind 03:14
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
