Track Name: minus one together
every bit of flame begins to float away
disappear in dark or can it feel
whispers something bringing back the memories
of what was strong
take my hand and walk me down to the fallen tide
run with outstretched arms like when you were five
grab the broken flower feel it soft inside
like when we were young

then suddenly it comes to me you're gone

waiting for waves to crash into the side of us
sink our ship or sail upon the rougher waters
for fear it will come again but with a tougher heart
like the stone inside
fast approaching now I run with all my might
I run not looking back I run with eyes closed tight
for the warmth for the feeling of your skin again
like I know I could

then suddenly it comes to me you're gone

if i could find you now what would i see
would you be smiling again would i find you happy
would you be dancing again would you feel light
like you were then, like you were then
Track Name: time to go
Oh my god I said as she leapt into my arms
Oh, my girl, where have you gone why did you run so far
To get away to see the place that I dream about each night
But the more I ran the farther the dream seemed from my eyes

I climbed so high I could taste the clouds with my tongue
They were sweet at first but I had too much and I had to climb back down
I tired to run home but I couldn’t move so I cried out why can’t i
Then all the birds took off and carried me right through the sky

I need you to know
It’s time for me to go
Track Name: you don't need to disappear
just before the silence breaks, just before the second that you take
a single breath before you start to scream
you feel so brave before you disappear in me
when everything around you changed so much it all began to feel the same
when nothing even strong enough to break
will you be, will you be brave enough to stay

hurry, hurry before you breathe, before you breathe

pull the covers over face decide to sleep it all away today
dream until the moon is full again
you pull yourself, you pull yourself together straight
run outside to howl so howl the thunder claps the rain right from the clouds
you open up your arms to catch the rain
will you be, will you be brave enough to stay

hurry, hurry before you breathe, before you breathe
you don’t need to disappear
Track Name: sleep, happy heart
He fell asleep with my hand on his back
I can feel every bone I can feel every crack with each breath
From the tiny crook in the side of his mouth
I can hear every thought I can hear every doubt with each breath

Sleep happy heart

Ending each day with a kiss on his cheek
Imagine you’re flying imagine you sing at your death
Holding his hand as we walk through the night
We take on the shadows and leave all the darkness behind

Sleep happy heart
