Track Name: Lemon Suns
There's a hundred lemon suns
I'll find time to gather every one.
Track Name: Give In To Your Heart
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
Track Name: Theme
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
Track Name: Low & Longing Moon
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
Track Name: New Balloon
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
Track Name: Hidden Treasure
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)
Track Name: Isn't There A Way
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?
Track Name: It's Over
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
