Track Name: Avoiding a Fight
We're walking in the city tonight
Trying to avoid each other and avoid getting in a fight
Just ignore those feelings inside
Everything will work out fine

We're walking in the city tonight
Although the street we're walking down we're on opposite sides
I can see we're thinking alike
But everything will work out fine

Not knowing where we're going tonight
But if your feet wanna take us there then I'm coming for the ride
If I feel like being compromised
I'll give you a call sometime

But when everything I say is wrong
When everything we've ever had is gone
Why even bother

We're walking in the city tonight
But when our feet gain more attention than each other's eyes
Can't ignore those obvious signs
Something's just not right

Maybe we're heading to different places
Or we've just realised yet that all we're wasting is some time
If we'd listened to what's inside
Everything would have worked out fine

But when everything I say is wrong
When everything we've ever had is gone
Why even bother going on.
Track Name: Black Sky Yellow Moon
Black sky, yellow moon
You got the feeling that it's come up too soon
But when it comes into focus, you suddenly notice
You're more lonely when you're by her side

Black holes, shooting stars
You'll never see them if you're looking too hard
But if you just sit back wondering, you're sure to miss something
And never notice them until your time's over

Dark sky, the moon's high
No clouds in the sky
Go home, stay inside
No hope in sight
Don't say you wont try
Don't hold it inside
Don't say you wont try
No hope in sight
Track Name: Breaking Up Breaking Down
I saw you happy once
I even watched you smile
You're not alone, you're not alone
And you don't need someone

With all your indignance
The last thing could possibly need
Another love, another love
To pin your hopes on

She made you happy once
She even made you smile
You weren't to know, you were alone
Her problems were her own

Think back to yesterday
When all you could see was her
Did she see you, did she see you
Did she see no one
Did she see no one
Were you her no one
To make her someone
Track Name: Blind and Stupid
What made you think you would get away with it
How did you think I would never know
You must have thought I was blind and stupid
You see I was thinking the same of you

I kinda thought I was being generous
I should have taken the soonest possible out
Then you convinced me that this is usual
I gave you the benefit of the doubt

So why are you running around with your hands over your eyes
Wondering while this happens to you why it still comes as a surprise

How did you think you would get away with it
How did you think I would never see through you
You must have waited till I got used to you
You see I was waiting to see the truth

So why are you running around with your hands over your eyes
With some smile like you know what it's about but when it comes you still don't recognise that

Oh no, it's coming to an end
For you, oh how sad my friend
Oh no, it seems your luck has changed
How strange

I kinda thought you were being humorous
I never knew someone could be so damn mean
You must have thought I was blind and stupid
And you did a fine job of convincing me

But oh no, it's coming to an end
For you, oh how sad my friend
Oh no, it seems your luck has changed
Or had you had that arranged
Oh no, it's coming to and end
Which part of that don't you understand
Oh no, it seems your luck has changed
How strange
Track Name: I Can See Again
And another thing I was wondering tonight
Will this wondering ever offer respite

I still feel the cold wind from your sigh
I still hear the silence in your cry
I can feel a love has died tonight alone

It's the other things that keep me awake at night
When the wondering seems to gently subside

I still see your cold heart through you eyes
I can feel my sad mind sympathise
I can feel my love has died and i feel fine

It's the only thing that kept me safe in my mind
Was the wondering if I'd come out alright

I still feel the cold wind from your sigh
I still hear the silence in your cry
I can feel my love has died tonight alone
Track Name: Never
I never wanted this
I never wanted all of those things that you said I would need
I never wanted you
I never even knew who you were until I got in too deep

Here we are, we've come this far
To fake our affections would be so sad

I'm willing to change my mind
Unwilling to leave behind who I am to be some thing you invent
I'm gonna need more time
I gotta be sure that I'm still in love and not just feeling overwhelmed

Here we are, we've come too far
To change our directions would leave such a mess
But you'll never see, or you just wont agree
To change everything about me wont save us
Track Name: Easy
I'm looking at you, you're looking right through
All the promises I've been making

Seems so easy to say, turn and look the other way
But there's no use if I feel I'm faking this

Let's go back to when we got things right
Let's take back everything we said that night

I started walking away, got tired of saying the same
Kind of things just to make you understand

It's got nothing to do with anything about you
It's all inside my head as cliched as that sounds

Let's go back to when we got things right
Let's take back everything we said that night

Coz, I don't want to be the one that didn't work out
Coz now it seems like every time I'm trying I feel like I'm turning around
Or backing down
I'm going nowhere fast instead I'm slowing down
And taking my time, taking my time

It's easy to break up, but it's harder to make up my own mind

Let's go back to when we got things right
Let's take back everything we said that night

Coz I don't want to be the one that didn't work out
Coz now it seems like every time I'm trying I feel like I'm turning around
Or backing down
I'm going nowhere fast instead I'm slowing down
And taking my time, taking my time
Track Name: Word for Word
Look outside the sun is shining
The sky is blue, but so are you

It takes a while to fake a smile
In the corners you back yourself into

You look inside but won't confide in
The people you keep yourself close to

You're so unsure and insecure
You have some idea, just no real view

All that you know is all that you've learnt
All you repeat is all that you've heard
Coz you don't have opinions of your own
There permanent loans retold word for word

All that you know is all that you've learnt
All you repeat is all that you've heard
Coz you don't have opinions of your own
There permanent loans retold word for word
