Track Name: Bright Blue Sky
Hate that I change just like the weather
Wish I was better like a bright blue sky
Hate that I change just like the weather
Wish I was better like a bright blue sky

I understand in every way
Why you've no place to place your faith
I understand in every way
Why you've no place to place your faith

Hate that I change just like the weather
Wish I was better like a bright blue sky
Hate that I change just like the weather
Wish I was better like a bright blue sky
I understand in every way
Why you've no place to place your faith
Hate that I change just like the weather
Wish I was better like a bright blue sky

Oh I try and I try and I try
Every summer
Every summer

We keep it distant but close
We keep it close to our chest
I wanted something more
You wanted something less
We keep it distant but close
We keep it close to our chest
I wanted something more
You wanted nothing more of this
Track Name: Always Summer
We left at night like we were spies
A bus to train with sleepy eyes
We left a note for those to know
Won't wait for sunset
Won't wait for sunset

The bus smelled of foreign skin
Places we had never been
Your hand in mine, the city lights
We're almost
We're almost home
Home
Home
Home

With songs like this one
Songs like this one
You and I are safe
You and I are safe
With songs like this one
Songs like this one
You and I are
You and I are home
Home
Home
Home

If you just stay here
Stay with me dear
I promise you a better place
I promise you a better place
I promise you a better place
A better place

We left at night like we were spies
A bus to train with sleepy eyes
We left a note for those to know
It's always summer
It's always summer here
Track Name: Hands In The Car
You are all I need now
You are all I need now
You are everything now
You found your way inside, how?
I have so much fear now
I have so much fear now
Cuz you are everything now
You caught me with my guard down

I'm showing friends your picture
Showing friends your picture
(everywhere I go)
I am like a junkie
With a new addiction
(a delicate line I've never known)
I know this is danger
I know this is danger
(I can feel the under ..)
But I can't stop my heart
From being such a cancer
(.. tow)

I'll keep my hands in the car
(til I know where you are, where you are)
I'll keep my hands in the car
(til I know where you are)
Cuz I can't take it if we can't get far
(til I know where you are, where you are)
Is this what I need to protect my heart?

I'll keep my hands in the car
I'll keep my hands in the car
Track Name: TV Set
Leave me alone, I wanna be alone
I'm better off on my own
I have always been this way
It's your decision if you decide to stay

You can try to pull me offsides
You always try, you always try
I wish to God that you were meant
To be as simple as a TV set
Oh oh

It's easy enough cuz you always try
Cuz I have a line and you have a line
I wish to God that I was meant
To be as simple as a TV set
Oh oh

We'll all fall down, we'll all hit the ground
In just a little while, little while
We'll all fall down, we'll all hit the ground
In just a little while, little while
In a little while oh oh oh oh
In a little while oh oh oh oh
In a little while oh oh oh oh
In a little while oh oh oh oh
Track Name: Stars
We don't see the stars
We don't see the stars
Anymore, anymore, anymore
We don't see the stars
We don't see the stars
Anymore, anymore

We don't believe it hurts
We don't believe it hurts
When they die, when they die, when they die
We don't believe it hurts
We don't believe it hurts
When they die, when they die

What I am afraid of
Is the end of the world that she's made of
What I am afraid of
Is the end of the world that she's made of

Keep my Vivienne safe
Keep my Vivienne safe
Vivienne safe
Vivienne safe
Vivienne

Blankets and sweet dreams
And pillows full of things
And melodies that you sing
Are beautiful, beautiful to me

What I am afraid of
Is the end of the world that she's made of
What I am afraid of
Is the end of the world that she's made of

Keep my Vivienne safe
Keep my Vivienne safe
Vivienne safe
Vivienne safe
Vivienne
Track Name: Stop, Please, Softly
If my heart was on a clock
And you could just make it stop
Would you?
Timing is your device
I will take no advice
From you
Hate and spite is where you live
Hate and spite is where you live
It's true

Lost inside a frequency
Static and sonar bleeds
You
Transmit only what you fear
Transmit it to me my dear
You
Aimlessly in the skies
Aimlessly lost inside of you
Are just cutting out

Stop! Stop!
Please, softly
Stop! Stop!
Please, softly

If my heart was on a clock
And you could just make it stop
Would you?

Stop! Stop!
Please, softly
Stop! Stop!
Please, softly
