Track Name: Birdsong
Never thought I'd feel this way again
But how could it ever be any different?
Your smile stops my heart from beating
Oh, I don't want this dream to end

Wake to the birdsong in the morning
And the light comes over the hill
Saw your face in a dream then I woke up and lost it
Can only hope I'll see you again

Never thought I'd feel this way again
But how could it be any different?
Your smile stops my heart from beating
Oh, I don't want this dream to end

Wake to the birdsong in the morning
And the light comes over the hill
Saw your face in a dream then I woke up and lost it
Can only hope I'll see you again

I'll come and find you
No, I can't stand waiting
I'll come and find you
No, I just can't wait

Wake to the birdsong in the morning
And the light comes over the hill
Saw your face in a dream then I woke up and lost it
Can only hope I'll see you again
Track Name: Somewhere Else
I can't explain
I gotta get out of this place
But my bones freeze up
And I can't get aboard that plane

Another day
Another chance put to waste
So scatter scatter, my friends
So I won't be tempted to stay

Don't wanna spend my life inside a prison cell
But I'm afraid to fall into the lion's den

Yeah, I'm afraid
They'll see my heart, they'll read my face
If you dig deep enough
You can hide your fears away

To tell the truth
I feel like such an old fool
I didn't think I'd have to
But I would've gone through hell for you

Don't wanna spend my life inside a prison cell
But I'm afraid to fall into the lion's den
Don't wanna spend my nights dreaming of somewhere else
Track Name: Peace // Sleep
Curtains open on the scene
I know that you can see right through me
You play your part so perfectly
I thought that it would be you and me

Tell me another lie, give me some peace
I need to think you're right here next to me
Tell me another lie, I'm so naïve
I need to think you love me so I'll sleep

I thought I wanted honesty
But I can hardly breathe
Darling, please
Say you'll love me, say you'll stay
Please don't go away

Tell me another lie, give me some peace
I need to think you're right here next to me
Tell me another lie, I'm so naïve
I need to think you love me so I'll sleep

You left me here by the doorway
Don't know if you're coming back
What if you find somebody else?
So I will stand by the doorway
Hoping that you'll come back
Could never love somebody else

So I'll wait

Tell me another lie, give me some peace
I need to think you're right here next to me
Tell me another lie, I'm so naïve
I need to think you love me so I'll sleep
Track Name: Can We Stay Here for a While
Staying up 'til the sunrise
We'll fall asleep at 9am 'cause we're tired
And we just ignore time
It sweeps softly through the rhythm of our lives

Can we stay here for a while?
Feels so sad to see this go
Can we stay here for a while?
I don't wanna let this go

Climbing up lots of tall trees
Then falling down onto the ground, we scrape our knees
I never wanted to grow up
But you aged eventually and somehow I aged too

Can we stay here for a while?
Feels so sad to see this go
Can we stay here for a while?
I don't wanna let this go

Time goes on, dreams get cold
Every child must grow old
Can we stay forever young
Even when the story's done?

Can we stay here for a while?
Feels so sad to see this go
Can we stay here for a while?
I don't wanna let you go

Can we stay here for a while?
Feels so sad to see this go
Can we stay here for a while?
I don't wanna let this go
