Lyrics:

We go out like air-deprived flames in a jar Bottled up, but hopeful for the heat A summer’s flash A dance in the street So, call me out by name This wild heart can be tamed And I’ll hold you close – so closely Shake my soul off the Richter Technicolor, bigger picture When the static’s clean I could let go But there’s so much I want to know You burn so bright With your blue eyes aglow I’ve fallen inside – glistening and beaded On your back Your arms, outstretched in your prowess For silent attacks So, call me out by name This wild heart can be tamed And I’ll hold you close – so closely Shake my soul off the Richter Technicolor, bigger picture When the static’s clean I could let go But there’s so much I want to know Change the channel We’re starting over Drop the anchor So I can hold you Life is fragile Our dreams unravel in a sad exposé (Whoa oh, oh oh) Shake my soul off the Richter Technicolor, bigger picture When the static’s clean I could let go But there’s so much I want to know

Lyrics:

You know better than to feel my pain Better you should know to be ashamed If it’s hard enough for you, my child To look me in the eye Cause if honestly ain’t your best policy I damn sure am gonna tell you goodbye Oh, this heart is worse for wear I’m only here, not there If you want me, got to know (I’ve got to know) You lead me on with those innocent eyes You shut me down when I try to take my prize Don’t I love you all the ways I should And don’t I keep you satisfied? We communicate, but then you subjugate All of the things I have to say Oh, this heart is worse for wear I’m only here, not there If you need me, got to know (I’ve got to know) You’re bad news and I’m the war But I won’t make your headlines no more You’re bad news and I’m the war But I won’t settle any of your scores Cause if honestly ain’t your best policy I damn sure am gonna tell you goodbye Oh, this heart is worse for wear I’m only here, not there If you want me, got to know I’ve got to know

Lyrics:

There’s a row of cars In this heatwave But you condition my air The evening sun Strobes hot on the dash Neutrons change with every flash And you’re here with me There’s nowhere I’d rather be I knew when we met Your loving would set me free Now, I’m free People come and go, but girl I know you’re staying Think of all the foolish games we could otherwise by playing It’s one thing to say good love is hard to find But quite another of a love that is one of a kind You leave me breathless in open air You get me restless in this bed we share Everything is nothing short of amazing And I believe it’s in the seasons – Even when they change I know we’re the same And you’re here with me There’s no one I’d rather see I knew when we met Your loving would set me free And I’m free People come and go, but girl I know you’re staying Think of all the foolish games we could otherwise by playing It’s one thing to say good love is hard to find But quite another of a love that is one of a kind There ain’t a day that I don’t feel so lucky There ain’t no inch of you I haven’t studied And honest as they day is long The best of you will always inspire My sweetest song People come and go, but girl I know you’re staying Think of all the foolish games we could otherwise by playing It’s one thing to say good love is hard to find But quite another of a love that is one of a kind Our love is one of a kind

Lyrics:

It must have been in a dream The first time I saw your face The sun and the stars were out at once As if the atmosphere had been erased And at the risk of being forward There was a little girl there with your eyes Piling sand upon your knees Laughing otherwise My heart ignites at the hint of a spark I’m a fool’s rewrite that’s read in the dark But I photograph much better Next to you And I don’t put my dreams first anymore Cause I’ve finally learned what our kisses are for Oh, Elizabeth I’ll love you till I’m bones You come on like a hurricane I weather winds and I wait for rain Finding peace in the comedy Love, I’m pining for your soliloquy “So, come in for the kill,” she said “Hold me like I want to be held Cause all these rerun words – They’re making me swerve ?Like a salesman desperate to sell My heart ignites at the hint of a spark I’m a fool’s rewrite that’s read in the dark But I photograph much better Next to you And I don’t put my dreams first anymore Cause I’ve finally learned what our kisses are for Oh, Elizabeth I’ll love you till I’m bones We’re gonna turn back the clocks tomorrow But there’s so much more than daylight ?In the hour I’ve borrowed from you My heart ignites at the hint of a spark I’m a fool’s rewrite that’s read in the dark But I photograph much better Next to you And I don’t put my dreams first anymore Cause I’ve finally learned what our kisses are for Oh, Elizabeth I’ll love you till I’m bones

Lyrics:

I’m not alone I’m not afraid of the dark There’s more that I’ve been shown And I see more than just a spark You keep the beat of my heart Apart from the sand A finite glass in the palm of your hand So, I’m not alone Not a chance I’m bouncing off of the walls like sonar I feel you – hear you coming closer I’m bouncing off of the walls like sonar I’ve been sitting here Still enough to feel the earth turn Cause calm is to disappear When we’ve got so much to learn And I know your hands could only call a truce Your inadvertencies would untie a noose So, I’m not alone cause you cut me loose I’m bouncing off of the walls like sonar I feel you – hear you coming closer I’m bouncing off of the walls like sonar There’s no job too small I’ll come when you call I’m here through the thick and the thin of it So scream all you want It’s me that you’ll haunt And I could still love the ghost of you I’m not alone I’m not afraid of the dark I’m bouncing off of the walls like sonar I feel you – hear you coming closer I’m bouncing off of the walls like sonar

Lyrics:

Oh no you don't, not so fast And certainly not before I'm home at last Is this reason now to believe that You're on a great escape Quietly this conceit And I fell so hard You could fold my bleeding star I love it, I love it all, And this thing I'm in I'm the best I've ever been I love it, I love it all, I remember you, up in arms About the spot of wine On your red dress charm And all these chances of being young Are passing by as we come undone And I fell so hard You could fold my bleeding star I love it, I love it all, And this thing I'm in I'm the best I've ever been I love it, I love it all, I can never lie to you Who makes all my dreams come true Yeah, you see them through And I swear I'm beneath the stars again I never comprehend What it meant before you And I fell so hard You could fold my bleeding star I love it, I love it all, And this thing I'm in  I'm the best I've ever been I love it, I love it all

Lyrics:

My eyes do their share of deceiving When I get my hopes too high Or when it's memories of you I'm retrieving Beneath the give of that super-moon sky And sure as the sun will rise I will keep us together I will keep us together With every bit of truth to your lies I will keep us together I will keep us together Love is all we can make My soul, yours to take You have my heart And that don't need explaining I know it can't be foretold But honey, now I know We'll get it right, you and I If we choose fight over flight You're lovely My perfect fifth in every chord You're the syrah in my song And I don't believe you - I could never believe How incredible you make me And sure as the sun will rise I will keep us together I will keep us together With every bit of truth to your lies I will keep us together I will keep us together Love is all we can make My soul, yours to take You have my heart And that don't need explaining I know it can't be foretold But honey, now I know We'll get it right, you and I If we choose fight over flight I spent days upon my knees Blood and scarring underneath I was just bracing for your call I was so predisposed to my belief That those I loved would never catch me But I'll never break my own fall Love is all we can make My soul, yours to take You have my heart And that don't need explaining I know it can't be foretold But honey, now I know We'll get it right, you and I If we choose fight over flight

Let Down Your Guard Where The Rain Ricochets

Lyrics:

I was born without life's lessons Despite good will and true confessions Never thought I'd be faced with one like you And all my friends act half my age These days, I spend on a different page But I'm all-in, taken on the chin, and Just maybe I'm yours I must have dreamed this moment You must have caught me sleeping But without reprise, the sun in my eyes Has shown me what can make this fly She says it's love, babe Let down your guard Cause the shots I take Ain't the ones that mar She says it's love, babe Let down your guard Come over tonight and Win over my heart If I am learned with one true lesson Love will find the gates of Heaven And I believe true love will get you through And oh, what seems to be Can often cause you misery But to my surprise, the sun in the sky Has shown me what can make this fly She says it's love, babe Let down your guard Cause the shots I take Ain't the ones that mar She says it's love, babe Let down your guard Come over tonight and Win over... My heart is where it's always been She said, it's be-stilled not unmoved And we'll stay in style - we'll be our Hopeless romantics Love does what you let it Don't it baby? She says it's love, babe Let down your guard Cause the shots I take Ain't the ones that mar She says it's love, babe Let down your guard Come over tonight and Win over my - To my surprise, the sun in the sky Has shown me what can make this fly She says it's love, babe Let down your guard Come over tonight and Win over my heart

Lyrics:

You and I were long before our time We couldn't think to run without the fear Of falling behind Now I'm caught up in dramatics The cynics and fanatics that Walk a straight line And the earth, it might as well be flat When the sun won't shine I said I'd call just as I got home But there's no need to wait up Or answer the phone if you're gone So why can't I feel all this love That I'm made of When I know my heart is still beating I'm at a loss, but I swear I'm not losing - I'm holding on I'm holding on to you You and I were long before our time We couldn't think to run without the fear Of falling behind But it's a postcard summer A song for another And you were just too busy When I was undercover for you So why can't I feel all this love That I'm made of When I know my heart is still beating I'm at a loss, but I swear I'm not losing - I'm holding on I'm holding on to you I'm breathing fine without you Won't hide all my laugh lines I know my dreams will wake up And I'll do all I can do Make it up to you

Lyrics:

To the one that got away I found all the words I'd been meaning to say Found them on streets Where the rain ricochets In shops that we'd visit From plans that we made Outside New England sees Winter again Sweethearts in cabs When the night's parties end I don't know how, but can I Still pretend to see clearly Through love without the use Of a lens? Love, I haven't been right Ever since you've been gone Restoring near sight To see what's been here All along It's my clothes in the dryer The ticking of clocks That Sunday inspires 'Neath the jaded tongues' talk And all we'd do is watch adverts to sleep Toying with a notion that neither would keep Love, I haven't been right Ever since you've been gone Restoring near sight To see what's been here All along I'll make the time in the evening Put up a fight if you need it to know I'm still here and I still care I miss the notes in the kitchen All the parts of your life that I'm missing They don't say goodbye Love, I haven't been right Cause I know I was wrong Restoring near sight To see what's been here All along

Lyrics:

Life tears you up Knocks you down Brings push to shove Goes the rounds I could prove my chin Take you on Thicken my skin Bruised and drawn Oh, but life is based on heart Not proving grounds Soon I’ll understand The miles that make a man from another There is no substitute for your cover When this life don’t fight so fair You’re like that moment of repair From a cutman Oh-oh, oh-oh Oh-oh, oh-oh There ain’t no greater purse When you just ask the universe For what you want But it’s always on the line Those richer titles Like calling you mine And worry haunts Oh, but life is based on love Not passing time Soon I’ll understand The miles that make a man from another There is no substitute for your cover When this life don’t fight so fair You’re like that moment of repair From a cutman Oh-oh, oh-oh Oh-oh, oh-oh Won’t you stop the bleeding End the swell I never thought I’d sleep this well (Soon I'll understand) (Won't you stop the bleeding) Oh-oh, oh-oh Oh-oh, oh-oh
