Track Name: The Simplest Things
Your lips move,
With delicacy as you say 'Hello',
Time stops,
I look at your eyes like a deer in the headlights.

I'm blown away,
There's electricity running through my veins.

I can't do the simplest things around you,
It's like I'm scared you're reading into my thoughts.
I can't do the simplest things around you,
Life's been flipped,
I'm taking baby steps once more.

It's like you,
Have silenced my words before I can speak.
My hands shake,
There must be an earthquake, I'm feeling my heart ache.

I'm blown away,
There's electricity running through my veins.

I can't do the simplest things around you,
It's like I'm scared you're reading into my thoughts.
I can't do the simplest things around you,
Life's been flipped,
I'm taking baby steps once more.

One foot in front of the other,
One heart right next to the other one,
My whole mind undercover.

I can't do the simplest things around you,
It's like I'm scared you're reading into my thoughts.
I can't do the simplest things around you,
Life's been flipped,
I'm taking baby steps once more.
Track Name: Safety Net
Counting the seconds down,
Crossing the numbers off,
To when I can hold you again.

Staring at plain white walls,
Missing familiar laughs,
They always made me feel at home.

I wish I could see a familiar face,
I'm out of my comfort zone,
Surrounded but I feel so alone.
I wish I could fall into your safety net once again,
There's no one to catch me here.

Faces are fading fast,
What did you look like last?
The glass is misted over.

I may have a photograph,
But if I break this branch,
I'm falling.

I wish I could see a familiar face,
I'm out of my comfort zone,
Surrounded but I feel so alone.
I wish I could fall into your safety net once again,
There's no one to catch me here.

I'd quite like your company,
Quite like your company,
And I'm waiting up here,
Up in this canopy,
Up in this canopy.

I wish I could see a familiar face,
I'm out of my comfort zone,
Surrounded but I feel so alone.
I wish I could fall into your safety net once again,
There's no one to catch me here.
Track Name: Birds Eye View
Oh the mountains and the trees aren’t tall enough to reach,
The height of my love for you.
No letter that I write or words I say won’t quite describe it.

And I won’t go, I’ll never go without you.

I’ve been waiting a very long time for you,
I’ve been waiting, and now I see us from a birds eye view,
Me and you.

As the music plays the people sway and I hold you tight,
Not letting go all night.
My heart it sings, it sings for you but no song could ever portray us,
It wouldn’t be perfect enough.

And I won’t go, I’ll never go without you.

I’ve been waiting a very long time for you,
I’ve been waiting, and now I see us from a birds eye view,
Me and you.

We’ll fly away from this town,
Like a bird fly away.
We’ll fly away from this town.
We’ll fly away from this town,
Like a bird fly away, fly away, fly away,
We’ll fly away.
Track Name: Backwards
Where did it come from?
I don't dare to ask,
In fear of losing it all,
And breaking the glass.

Retracing my steps,
Through the trail that I left,
In fear of forgetting where it started,
Forgetting the best.

Walking backwards through the streets,
To the place where we meet.
The smiles disappear and I lose you my dear,
I think I'd rather go forwards.

I see a box of broken things,
But it's hidden behind a sepia mist.
And I see her crying in her bed,
Not the faintest clue of what's up ahead.
Ooh...

Walking backwards through the streets,
To the place where we meet.
The smiles disappear and I lose you my dear,
I think I'd rather go forwards.

Flashbacks in my head before I ever had you.
I'd rather not think.
I've come a long way from back in that day.

Walking backwards through the streets,
To the place where we meet.
The smiles disappear and I lose you my dear,
I think I'd rather go forwards.
