Track Name: Line By Line
And it happens again...
all she did was smile & I find myself running.
Your words to you sound bare but I keep them in my room line by line.

And it happens again all she ever did was smile.
And I wish I didn't feel this but I know she doesn't care if I talked to you only if I talked to you.

If I talked to you.
Track Name: For Sake Of Space
I heard your good news in the strangest way
over bad synth music which is looped all day.
She seemed so different said our mutual friend
as our neighbours coughed & sneezed.

Was my invitation discussed at all
and rejected for sake of space and cost.
I'd have sat at the table with your distant relatives
and pulled conversation from the awkward silences.

And the club we formed didn't last too long.

I've heard the speeches served to re-invent the past
but three hundred glasses raised doesn't change the facts.
As the waiting room cleared, I considered your good news
and the music looped for the last time today.
Track Name: Shape & Size
Tired of my home
& the expression, it'll happen
the intention to take some action goes
with the car door closed.
My feet will lead me to your corner of this beer soaked floor.

The way you decide the pace
while drunk & laughing
of my actions.

It seems you can't remember the conversation we just had
one will come along again soon.
Bar closed, eyes back to normal colour, shape & size
we go, we'll go.
Damp shirt, moist with perspiration & the beer you spilt while we were laughing.
Seems you can't remember the conversation we just had;
sometimes I think I'd be better off if I just stayed on my own.
Track Name: Spelling & Grammar
To kill time before our coach arrives we try to look for spelling mistakes
on the signs up on the walls
on the posters showing bus times.

An earphone a-piece although the engine still overpowers the songs
you've chosen to keep you company on journeys that take too long.

Now I am far enough away that I can see distance is what we need.
Track Name: On The Return
Sold myself in the time it takes for you to smoke a cigarette.
Sit & wait & plan my reaction to what hasn't happened yet.
It's stupid to & I wish I knew how to stop me turning, turning red.
I know.

In the sun, when she calls
I'm reaching for a pen to write this down.

In the time it took her to decide I changed my mind but she called me then & changed it back again

And I wouldn't care if it hadn't been so long
in the times it take me to realise something's wrong I'll be gone.
Track Name: Favourite Films (the Films We Like)
Now I'm home the talk we had over too many drinks
seems so insincere but the tar on the ground below
kept us stuck
here.
We watched all our friends dancing
even though it's late I still hear people passing outside.

Outside I try to make you laugh but there's no reply
so I just look down

I will be alone in here waiting patiently
like I always did before I met you.
I don't know just how this is supposed to go
guess we never had a chance to practise.

Now I'm home the talk we had over too many drinks
seems so insincere but the things I know kept you stuck here.
We talked about the films we like.
The films we like.

I will be alone in here waiting patiently like I always did before I met you.
I will be trying my best just to alter me & take away the things that keep us only friends.
Track Name: The Constant Threat of Falling Buildings
Here's the truth or as I see it
you've made mistakes & you're making more right now.
I know the city can be restrictive
the constant threat of buildings falling down.
There's nothing wrong with feeling lonely
even if there's someone there with you.
I know the city can be restrictive.

The skies blue & I'm feeling better
I'm indoors but I have an OK view.
The noise from the streets distracting you as you plan the things you'll never do.
It's only right to still feel nervous
about the lack of structure to your views.
Here's the truth or as I see it.

Under constant threat of an accident
these weak & crumbling walls
and I'd go outside if I had the time
but there's nothing there for me at all.

Here's the truth or as I see it
you need to be reminded of the things
you have & take for granted your health & the promise that it brings.
There's nothing wrong with feeling lonely even if there's someone there with you.
Here's the truth or as I see it.

Under constant threat of an accident
these weak & crumbling walls
and I'd go outside if I had the time
but there's nothing there for me at all.
Track Name: Made Simple
It's so cold outside this year.
I'd hoped at least I would find some reason to go outside
before this temperature froze the front door closed.

I can't say I've tried as hard
as I say I've tried so far but there really is no reason to believe a change in circumstance is heading this way soon.

And the seven days I spent
trying to figure out what this all meant.
Has only made things worse.
I have only made things worse.
Track Name: The Hours Inbetween
I'm wondering how something so big gets off the ground.
I'd ask you if you were here but you're not.
And the thick glass blocks all the noise from the take off
so for tired travellers it's possible to sleep.

A time zone separates us, all the hours inbetween
I'm counting down down down from eight to one.
And I know the lights below are the ugly streets that we ignore every day.
It's hard up here to imagine that at all.

So I wrote this down.
With my feet on solid ground I wrote this down.
Track Name: Don't Go Without Me
How am I supposed to move on when the choice is gone
decisons are made by the things you do.

Bar queues shift & the company we ignore as we find the door we carved our initials in weeks ago.

All I ever need to do is remind myself I'm here
and so are you.

It seems I'm part of you re-invention
I'm here with my own intentions
So, I'm here with my own intentions.
