Track Name: Edge of the Night
On the edge of the night we lived, we were just a couple kids back then

By the break of the dawn we missed any chance to get a good night’s rest

Though our brains couldn’t work as fast, we were searching for another glance

At a moon, or a star or hill, to send us tumbling for another thrill

Tumbling for another thrill

(ooohh’s)



On the edge of the night we lived, the moon reflecting in your blood-shot eyes

And we watched as the fire danced, every leap and twirl we’d memorize

Though our tongues, they were lost for words, the crackling glow made conversation

It reminisced of the nights before, and shared it’s hopes of all the nights in store

Hopes of all the nights in store

(ooohh’s)



On the edge of the night we lived, jumping in, the water set us free

Off the end of the dock we left every burden and priority

Though our skin it was cold and white, our souls were thirsty for another fight

With our lungs and the ticking clock

that tried to keep us from the cleansing flood

Keep us from the cleansing flood

(ooohh’s)
Track Name: I Promise
Eye to eye, but we’ve lost our sight, and I don’t think you care to get it back

Side by side, I’m on your side, but we’re the farthest apart we’ve ever been



Line by line, you state my crimes, but I’m not making any sense of it

Sigh by sigh, you shake my cries, you say you haven’t, but you’ve given up



I promise I’ll do better

I think we’ll be just fine

I promise I’ll do better

It all takes time, it all takes time



By and by, we’ve said our goodbyes, but I’m not buying any of it

Time after time, you say I’ve wasted your time, well I hope you’re happy, isn’t it about time


I know that we can do better than this
Track Name: Mother
She likes blues and greens, the colours of the ocean
She dances with the tide
She likes blues and greens, the colours of the ocean
The colour of her eyes


She likes oranges and reds, the colours of her flowers
They make her feel alive
She likes oranges and reds, the colours of her flowers
Their life keeps her alive


She likes purples and pinks, the memories of her daughters
The innocence is peace
She likes purples and pinks, the memories of her daughters
The peace is what she needs


She likes yellows and white, the feeling of the sunlight
It tickles all her skin
She likes yellows and white, the feeling of the sunlight
It heals her from within


She has tasted, and smelt the beauty
She has endured, and done her duty, as lover and other
The colours she holds as her proof


She likes blues and greens, the colours of the ocean
She dances with the tide
She likes blues and greens, the colours of the ocean
The colour of her eyes
The colour of her eyes
Track Name: Glue
Emptied out into the breeze

The parts of me I wish you’d see

You chased the wind, caught all we need

To start a masterpiece


Hidden underneath the stairs

Your box of shattered hopes and cares

The jagged pieces felt my tears

We’ve gathered all we need


Broken souls and twisted hearts

We’ll staple up the missing parts

We’re ripped and fragile from the start

But that’s alright with me


A smile from you, a laugh from me, what doesn’t stay we’ll stick it down with
Glue


Broken souls and twisted hearts

Our melancholy piece of art

It has no name but it’s a start

It’ll grow on us in time

It’s growing with the time
