There's a hundred lemon suns I'll find time to gather every one.
2.
Two, unopened flowers in the grass Waiting for a moment that has passed I can't think about how long it's been It doesn't help to know and there's still heat within me Oh you've gotta give in to your heart You learn a lot when you hide away Like how to think the things you'd never say You know that you can't fail at what you never try But what's the point in hiding from the thrill of life? Oh you've gotta give in to your heart Don't be estranged from who you really are You've gotta find out how to make your mark You've gotta listen to it You've gotta give in to it Oh you've gotta give in to your heart

Are you the one who's come to take me away? From all of the things that I alone just can't face? (My terrible fate!) A human capable of more than they know Just say you'll hold me tight and never let go Can we pretend it's what I know it can't be? A love that exists without a vulnerability? (I won't be alone!) Not one of many but the only true love A reason to believe I'm worth thinking of A love defined By the images of what money can buy Can I change my mind? Can I expect there's something on the other side? I won't pretend that I'm immune to the theme But I often wonder of the possibilities (There has to be more) 'Cause I don't know where I fit in to the scene That shows a world of people nothing like me

I am the thief I am the find The seed in your mind I am the grief The need in spite The thrill of your life I am the reason you will find To make things better The feeling no one can deny It strings us together What you intend What you defy What you endeavour Like the low and longing moon you'll live your love in dreams Waiting for your silver moment, glowing through your seams Like the low and longing moon you'll live your love in dreams Waiting for your silver moment, closer than it seems

It won't be long now Until you're a new balloon Rosy red and laughing At the memory of this broken, broken heart Come to my room tonight I know what love is We're the evening Warm and sweet It's all All a dream It's alright We know how to love baby It's about time I won't give it up It's alright We know how to love baby It's about time I won't give you up Heart, come, To my room tonight I know what love is We're the evening Warm and sweet It's all All a dream
6.
The sound of rain Clear as morning Ushers in a gentle warning But like a dream It passes while we're asleep Far from view But close as ever Thought I knew Cloud from feather Life from loss Lines from letter (Thought I knew where to find the light in your mind There's a space in my heart, fill it up. Come apart from the loss of love, come untied There's a new place to start, right away) Talk to me Make it better It's in my head It's just the weather But like a dream It's endless and incomplete Thought of you Like hidden treasure Far from view But close as ever (Thought of your and the light that hides in your mind There's a space in my heart, fill it up. Come apart from the loss of love left behind There's a new place to start, right away)
7.
Isn't there a way for me to shut my eyes And see you walk away like You finally came to realise that you're a bad man I don't have to time to hear you criticise A life where you decide I'll listen when you recognise that that's a bad plan I won't be waiting by the phone To hear about the bullshit you have flown I won't calm down or change my tone until you understand That you should have known better from the start How to use your head, how to use your heart Your ignorance is a work of art and I'll gladly be the one to say Isn't there a way hey hey?

I can't turn away My heart is still Held by your heart Don't be lead astray I'm insecure That the fun is over It's over
