when i was young the summer felt so long it's just a sign of age one foot into the graveyard and my whistle stops it's song white autumn spiders climb in from the cold afraid to die climb in through my troubled winter mind as kids we ran and vanished from the street we knew where we should be the sun snuck past the tree line and we'd run back home to see white autumn spiders climbing through our windows from outside climb in through my troubled winter mind eventually all my friends will leave I need to know when time gathers speed you'll remember me when all my memories are fading with the light the leaves fall from the trees this darkness in the evening creeps in faster all the time white autumn spiders climb in through my troubled winter mind

Little Mouse 05:42
echoing about the walls of this glass house the stirring of a mouse who's cleaning off his snout and singing no no no no there's nothing to worry about no no no no there's nothing to worry about his nervous little hands will wash then wash again the hair stands on his neck when somewhere from the darkness a stranger calls his name and whispers no no no no there's nothing to worry about no no no no there's nothing to worry about You silly little mouse You Worried little mouse What can you do? with quiet hissing breath the dark ophidian says don't be afraid don't be afraid soon you will see soon you will see you're as guilty as me

Little Bird 04:11
this little bird this little bird, he sings for love for love, for love for love only this gilded cage this gilded cage betrayed my heart for love, for love please, don't take my song away from me for love, for love for love only

when we are old and you forget my name will i be there when you are not the same some make a vow and some swear on a plan don't be so sure that i am such a man i can't forgive myself for things i've said out loud you won't remember now anyway when we are old and time has changed your mind if you don't cry the day we say goodbye would i be mad or would i understand that all things must pass, all things must pass i can't forgive myself for things i've said out loud you won't remember now anyway

I can't lift you from yourself but i can try to do what i can to lighten your load but there's not a soul who can go and truly see your face or define the define the things we are or have been so lets give up this silly little game and we'll never be the same again when your cravings give you pain ill do what i can to lighten your load so you can let go but there's not a soul who can go and tell you what to do or make your mind for you old friend so i'll give up my guru attitude and i'll let you live for you again

this party is no fun anymore for the tablecloth stained with wine as the glasses pang and knives collide all night the conversation turns to a toast meant to anecdote how they met napkins leap from laps so we can dress our smiles the music calls the eyes down toward the lovers dancing slow there's just two on the floor this moment stings a little more than any has before it hurts to watch her go so settle on the red and then pour just a little more for the room 'till we speak in tongues that slur the truths we hide

I want to understand the reasons why we make-believe the things we dare not try there's murmurs in the ocean of a tremor coming from the other side underneath the surface rarefaction just before the waves collide don't be cruel cause i am on your side don't be cruel cause i am on your side such subtle movements when you're satisfied syncopated rhythms when we're locked in stride when the water rises we will climb up to the roof so we stay dry you and I will watch our friends and families be swept up in the tide don't be cruel cause i am on your side don't be cruel cause i am on your side when things I know don't match the way I act when I cant see the things I'm looking at when the water rises up above my head will you be at my side I will hold my breath and i will count the time until the waves subside don't be cruel cause i am on your side don't be cruel cause i am on your side i am on your side

I can't see the end yet I'm happy to ignore it There’s such a long night ahead Let's stay away forever I’ll kiss your eyes I’ll gently lie you down I’ll tell you how I’ll build a place where we can go I’ll tell you all the secrets that I know Then I’ll be quiet, silent As much as I can manage To keep these things in secret fear A burden not to borrow I’ll tell you lies I’ll heavy hold you down I’ll show you how I'll break apart when times are tough I'll leave before I give you any trust But I can't see the end yet I'm happy to ignore it There’s such a long night ahead Let’s stay awake forever

Enough 02:33
in the morning after my dream's breakup just as I'm leaving her pillow fills up and I know a kiss before I go will have to be enough in the evening I've just begun to brush the city from me but she is rushing out the door a kiss before she goes will have to be enough as surely as the moon will watch the sunset in the evening when every night the sky will fade to black so she and I will waltz around in circles gently reaching for a time when we can have each other back when the bed light and the TV crush my eyes around me my dreams will fill up like a bowl a kiss before I go will have to be enough
