Track Name: Eli
I’ve been turning these words over in my mouth
Writing them down, trying them out

Pretending that they’re mine already,

Making pacts with cupid

What If I spoil it by saying something stupid?



Spent but never wasted
A summer picking brains

We spent the summer catching trains

I can’t explain it and make it sound lucid,

Instead I’ll spoil it by saying something stupid...



A thousand words,

In my head

Three words to put to bed

Drowning in the overflow

I only wanted you to know....



You make me feel

Like home’s a person, not a place

You make me feel

Like life's a journey, not a race

I’m tongue tied, tired and blue

and the only thing I see is true

Is that I only feel like me when I’m with you...

Grass stains and sunburnt shoulders
Candy apples as the bonfire smoulders
When you went home I couldn’t place how I felt
Now there’s a part of me that lives somewhere else



A thousand words,

In my head

Three words to put to bed

Drowning in the overflow

I only wanted you to know....



You make me feel

Like home’s a person, not a place

You make me feel

Like life's a journey, not a race

I’m tongue tied, tired and blue

and the only thing I see is true

Is that I only feel like me when I’m with you...

(you make me feel) - repeated

I had plans y’know before you came and intruded
Now all I think about, now all I think about is saying something stupid...


I just wanna be inside your arms.. x 2

You make me feel

Like home’s a person, not a place

You make me feel

Like life's a journey, not a race

I’m tongue tied, tired and blue

and the only thing I see is true

Is that I only feel like me when I’m with you...
When I’m with you...
Track Name: Monsters
I’ve been looking for a story
for almost all of my life
I know there's one inside me
but I can't quite tell it right
I want to quiet my mind
and silence my fears
and just be honest
about the last few years

I was rowing upstream
One summers evening

I’d been ignoring the warning signs
That I’d been receiving
And by the time I realised
That I had gone off track
I had no idea how
To get myself back

I dove into the ocean
trying to to get back to the river
Swimming for the top but
The moonlight just got thinner
I thought I’d found my little boat
But it’s anchor had gone slack
I had no idea how 
To get myself back

Monsters live in the dark
And I've two wet sticks trying to make a spark
If I raise the courage to turn on the light
Maybe I'll sleep tonight x 2

Soon I hit the bottom
With weights around my feet
And as my lungs filled up
I felt my energy deplete
Defeated, I retreated
I found a place to hide

Soon enough three years had passed

And I hadn’t been outside



As I sent out an S.O.S

I wondered what they’d think

To know my life was not plain sailing

That I’d let myself sink

And by the time I’d picked myself up
from the ocean floor

I’d convinced myself 

They wouldn’t want me anymore


Monsters live in the dark
And I've two wet sticks trying to make a spark
If I raise the courage to turn on the light
Maybe I'll sleep tonight x 2


(I’ve been sinking, I’ve been sinking to the bottom of my mind 
I’ve been shrinking, I’ve been shrinking ‘til I’m too small to find) x 2

As soon as I stopped thinking

My mind began to float

I soon found my way back to my little old boat
Too busy swimming to see

That I never left the river
And the river never left me...



Monsters live in the dark
And I've two wet sticks trying to make a spark
If I raise the courage to turn on the light
Maybe I'll sleep tonight x 2
Track Name: Origami
There’s a fire burning out in your city
I can see the smoke but not the flames
Throwing sparks in whole new places
And there’s something different
When you say my,
you say my name

There’s a boat moving on down the river,
The lights are on but there’s no-one aboard
Nothing you say ever what it seems
And yet nothing you say ever seems untoward
seems unto, seems unto, seems unto, seems un-

Toward the nectar
drawn in by your colours
as I move a little closer
I see everything looks duller
I’m far too close for comfort now,
I let your words disarm me
I thought I’d found my answer but it was only Origami

There’s a bird flying out overhead,
She’s caught your gaze, torn a hole in your skies,
A universe glaring that you’ve never seen,
And everything’s different before your wide eyes..
before your wide -

Eyes fixated
I can barely stand to face this
What I see is just a mirror now
I had thought was an oasis
I’ve been collecting armour
For next time you come to charm me
You said you’d bring me flowers
But they were only Origami

I’m walking the footbridge looking out at the night
Your boats pulling up as if I might get in
I’ve learn not to notice, I know you won’t join me
Just let me jump over even though I cannot -

Swim until you find me
On an island in the ocean
Drag yourself to the centre
Just to declare your devotion
To your home that you have run from
As you wrap your arms around me..
You gave me your heart
But it was only.... Origami.
Track Name: Molly Brown
‘Molly Brown’ Lyrics

Feel like I’d probably better learn
How to be okay
With going completely insane
For just four or five days
Just four or five days
Let the stormy winds
Roll over the sea
Without capsizing
And drowning me
And drowning me
Is this what it feels like to die?
A working body and a broken brain
A straight face worn in vain...

Is this what it feels like to die?
A machine gun heart
And a river in each palm
A voice frantic with fear screaming
Keep calm

Is this what it feels like to die?
Like my home’s too small
But the worlds too cold
Like I’m watching the world
From inside my fishbowl

Is this what it feels like to die
Like I’ll never give up but I’ll never give in
but the harder I fight, the further I sink

Feel like I’d probably better learn
How to be okay
With going completely insane
For just four or five days
Just four or five days
Let the stormy winds
Roll over the sea
Without capsizing
And drowning me...
And drowning me...

Is this what it feels like to die?
I’ll be here in a year
No doubt a few more
But that doesn’t stop the fear
From waiting outside my door

Is this what if feels like to die?
Or am I growing in to something new?
I’ll be seeing you in the garden
Where you grew

Feel like I’d probably better learn
How to be okay
With going completely insane
For just four or five days
Just four or five days
Let the stormy winds
Roll over the sea
Without capsizing
And drowning me...
And drowning me...
Track Name: Humbug
‘Humbug’ Lyrics

If I only had the brain
I'd ask the wise-man to explain 
Why when I thought to turn around
I left my insides on the ground 

If I only had the heart
I'd ask the wise-man to impart 
Why when love's rain and thunder struck
It left me standing, staring, stuck

Muddied up
Gaze to the floor
And I can’t turn back
I can’t go on anymore
I’m just a little girl clicking my heels
Trying to remember how home feels x 3

If I only had what’s on your feet
I’d ask the wise-man to unseat
The powers that have been
And turn a whiter shade of green

If I only had the nerve
I'd ask the wise-man to observe
Me fighting demons I can beat
And lay my skin beneath his feet

Muddied up
Gaze to the floor
And I can’t turn back
I can’t go on anymore
I’m just a little girl clicking my heels
Trying to remember how home feels x 2

All I want’s somewhere to hang my coat
I want you to hold me as I hang my head
And I just wanna be inside your arms
But I’m trapped in the grips
Of something else instead
Staring at the desert I fall to the floor
As I see home’s not home anymore

Muddied up
Gaze to the floor
And I can’t turn back
I can’t go on anymore
I’m just a little girl kicking my heels

Trying to remember how home x 3
feels
