. . .


It's not like it was before.
There's a beauty in slamming doors.
And the lightning plays in your eyes.
As it cracks through North Western skies.
Girl you were beautiful before.
But in the cyclone I love you more.
There's a pause in the faintest smile.
As the storm rages on for miles

There's no answers in the tempest.
Just a million other questions.
So just let it take you over.
So that we can learn our lesson.

And this has just got ridiculous.
Cause it's burned through the both of us.
In the crumble down cinema.
We can hide where we always hide.
On the blank screen project our lives.
Me as husband and you as wife.
And as the storm outside dissipates.
The screen wipes to ticker tape.

There's no answers in the tempest.
Just a million other questions.
So just let it take you over.
So that we can learn our lesson.

There's no answers in the tempest.
Just a million other questions.
So just let it take you over.
So that we can learn our lesson.

. . .


The fire, the wine, the bed and you.
In this crimson light I find the truth.
And the truth is like a punch or two.
It hits you hard it knocks you through.

So I... get on the road and ride to you.
I... get on the road and ride to you.

Kiss like a fight that neither wins.
A tender payment for our sins.
You are the drug that I can't quit.
Your perfect chaos is perfect fit.

So I... get on the road and ride to you.
I... get on the road and ride to you.

From broken farm to broken farm.
The engine noise like an alarm.
It breathes a thunder in my soul
Begins to rise through the dustbowl.

So I... get on the road and ride to you.
I... get on the road and ride to you.

The wheel it settles in my hands.
This is the measure of a man.
I point the car at north at you.
My route has scarred the country through.

So I... get on the road and ride to you.
I... get on the road and ride to you.

. . .


By the look in your down-turned eyes,
you've had enough of these angry skies.
I can't wait just like you can't wait
until we're out, past familiar gates.

Your hands are freezing cold on my face,
just like the winter snow that covers up this place.

It's what you wrote in the book's first page.
It's what I've hungered for on that stage.
Those seven words shook the life back in,
so let's just run 'til we lose our breath.

Point me at lost islands. Point me at the sea.
I've love to know the sound of nothing else but you.

For the life of me, I don't know
what took us so long, but here we are.
Standing face to face, suddenly
everything makes sense, at least to me.

. . .


Here's to every time that you rock a boat
Here's to every word that you ever wrote
There were clues but it was never clear
You've got to choose your own way out of here

I could say anything you need, anyone you knew,
Anything you see, anything you say,
Anything you need, anyone you knew, anything you
It would be this it would be this.

I've been waiting for the spark myself,
I've been scrambling in the dark for health
I have read your words a thousand times
All this spark but smashed up love and crime.

I could say anything you need, anyone you see
anything you knew, anything you say
anything you need, anyone you knew, anything you
It would be this, it would be this

I've been choking on the bones and tears.
You are the smoking gun ... front the years (?)
A broken heart won't get you far enough,
I'll beat up waiting through the ... roof (?)

I could say anything you need, anyone you see,
anything you knew, anything you say,
anything you need, anyone you knew, anything you
it would be this, it would be this

. . .


This light at the end of the day
When even the highways seem still
The map in my hands folded shut
There isn't one magical word
But a carnival of them instead
Like an old, silent cinema screen

In this light you are framed classically
Just a painting that hangs in my head
That I know like the back of my hand
And with the sun set, the neon awakes
And the cold colours dance on your skin
Finally the modern makes sense to me

You're effortless, you know you are
And all I want to do
Is let you lead me off into the dusk
Our shadows kiss before we do
Right here in the dark
I revel in the calm before the storm

The garden is haunted by us
And every mistake that we've made
Is at peace coz it led us both here
The thought that just burns into me
Of you in the ink of the night
Is the breath-taking danger of you

You're effortless, you know you are
And all I want to do
Is let you lead me off into the dusk
Our shadows kiss before we do
Right here in the dark
I revel in the calm before the storm

This is life
This is all I want from life
It's the fervour and the tenderness combined.
In the dark, in the ever-falling dark,
we are anchorless adrift but barely notice

(You're effortless, you know you are
And all I want to do
Is let you lead me off into the dusk
Our shadows kiss before we do
Right here in the dark
I revel in the calm before the storm)

(You're effortless, you know you are
And all I want to do
Is let you lead me off into the dusk
Our shadows kiss before we do
Right here in the dark
I revel in the calm before the storm)

(You're effortless, you know you are
And all I want to do
Is let you lead me off into the dusk
Our shadows kiss before we do
Right here in the dark
I revel in the calm before the storm)

. . .


Where's the silver necklace you, never wear anymore,
does it hurt just to see that thing.
Where's the sense in holding on, to the lie,
that has cast such a shadow on the both of us.
I can't see myself for you, it's no use,
I've been struck stupid floundering for far too long.
I've not found the strength to say, nor the urge,
cause I'm too scared you'll agree we need to talk.

The reigns are off they're off for both of us.
It's changed so much but we've barely noticed it.
And all I want is right in front of me now.
Right here in front of me.

I can't for the life of me, read the signs, read your mind,
read your lips, read your diary.
Everything is all at once with you dear,
I can't see were the now starts and next begins.
Coupled with your majesty there's your heart
there's a unflinching kindness I won't forget.
So let's smash it up and start again
there still time to recall everything that was good for us.

The reigns are off they're off for both of us.
It's changed so much but we've barely noticed it.
And all I want is right here in front of me now.
Right here in front of me.
I've banged my head against this brick wall so much.
That you can see the daylight through it.
I just, I want you to see the light.

. . .

I Am A Landslide

[No lyrics]

. . .


I've been terrified since you walked out the door
These are not the lies I told you once before
This is not the end it's still an outside thing
I'm not taking off my wedding ring just yet

In it's years since I took stock of it
Seems that it's become to much
This is everything I ever wrote
Collapsed into the core

I've been terrified for far to fucking long
What is that thing I lack that makes you so damn strong
Your letter in my hands is rolled into a ball
With drunken comedy it's thrown hard at the wall

In it's years since I took stock of it
Seems it's become too much
This is everything I ever wrote
Collapsed into the core

The stitches are unravelling
And the seems have all but burst
Maybe all my years of travelling
Have quenched what I've thirsted

These years have flown by
These hands have shaken
I have no notion
What happens next

There's a kind of feelings
And I think of it
Then the panic quickens
There is no sorrow

. . .


You were saved by the good book,
I was saved by the half full glass,
So come on take a good look,
Cause this party will be your last.

And they've closed down the old bar,
This town's like a empty box,
And they can't have gone that far,
Cause I can still see some swing in the box.

The fall it feels like flying,
There's a dangerous hope,
Cause the ground comes at you faster than you'd think,
Lurking in the shadows,
With the bears and wolves,
Cause that's where you feel the most upon these days.

When you called I was screening,
It confused me that hear your voice,
It was like I was dreaming,
And ten years became a life(?),
I could barely remember,
Just enough to open the wounds,
In the darkest December,
I can howl at the early moon.

The fall it feels like flying,
There's a dangerous hope,
Cause the ground comes at you faster than you'd think.
Lurking in the shadows,
With the bears and wolves,
Cause that's were you feel the most upon these days.

. . .


I see her from the deep garden
And her hair is soaking wet
The bedroom light is flickering
To the pounding of your heart
You close your eyes and count to ten
When they open you are (steel?)
Slow your breathing down to meet
All the shadows and the ghosts
Pieces of your heart collapse
To the sound of beating drums
You can't contain it anymore so just let the madness come
There's something in the way she moves that just terrorises you
You try to piece confusing clues together in your head

I see you there, shining like a beacon
(Fabric tears) Fabric tears
My love burns for you
(The end of me) The end of me is in there with you right now
(Car engine) Car engine, still too hot to touch.

You're married to her in your mind
And she loves you like a son
Yearning for a place in time
And a hope to call your own
Smashed into you hard enough
That you will not soon forget
He wants her like a sword and sheild
And he wants her here and now

I see you there
You are my only empire
(Call you name) I call your name but it becomes the wind
(A sudden lurge) A sudden lurge, a quickening of footfalls
(Bible held) A Bible held above me like an axe.
