Track Name: Back To The Sea
Back to the Sea
Returning stones
Returning stones
Silver and bone guided me
Out in the night
When they come
Star light star light disguise me

If we get no sleep
how do we dream

Rise Up
C'mon
Rise Up
Be Strong
This freedom
Is So Hard won
We must make our bones
Make them count

Storm clouds forming on the horizon
Small craft warning
If we do nothing then the seas will come
and our eyes will not be our own
If we get no sleep
How do we dream

Rise up
C'mon
Rise Up
Be strong
This freedom
is so hard won
We must make our bones
Make them count

Take your strength from the ground
Rise up
Rise up and make a sound yeah

This freedom is so hard won
We must rise up
C'mon
Rise up be strong
Rise up C'mon
Track Name: Rules Of Love
I was alone
When I went out
You turned up unannounced
Sat yourself down by my side
Seemed to think that was all right

You don't play by the rules of love
Is that your game
You don't play by the rules of love
Well thats ok

Suddenly this is beginning
No ordering of natural things
You're in my mind where ever I am at night
Bite my tongue and see through covered eyes

You don't play by the rules of love
Is that your game
You don"t play by the rules of love
Well thats ok

Don't look at me that way
Don't look at me that way
Like you don't know me
Like you don't know anything about me
Knife across my chest
Oh everything changes

You don't play by the rules of love
Is that your game
You don't play by the rules of love
Well thats ok

You're not my lover
You're not my friend
We're something in between
Still connected
When we were alone , you reached for me
When we were alone, didn't we?

You don't play by the Rules of Love
Is that your game
You don't play by the rules of love
Thats ok

Sweet bitterness
Oh everything changes
Track Name: When I Met You
I was like you
Now that has changed
Why am i drawn to the floor
its something to do with the shame
There's always a woman
one ahead
one behind
Hey gorgeous
I want the last word
Its fatal and desperately unkind
you couldn't walk when I met you
You couldn't walk when I met
that is not now
that is not now
How can you exist
Broken like this
My will made you strong
Somethings wrong
Every part of London
Reminds me of someone
a part of my life that is not now
That is not now
Is not now
That is not now
watched them push holes in your mouth
and staple up your skin
stabbed boy in the next room
shield you from him
you couldn't walk when i met you
you couldn't walk when i met you
that is not now
that is not now
that is not now
that is not now
not now
not now
not now
not now
its not now now
not now
not now
not not now
not not now
not now
not not now
not not now
