Track Name: Mon Amour
La vie avec toi
C’est la vie en rose
Et j’espere que l’amour
Est assez

Cold scared, nowhere
I'll always deceive you
I know, I know
'cause you are my soul now
And this is the only road away
And I wish you'd never
Become so easy to sway
So fast we slow down
Throw all these poisoned years away
Just don't get so sore
When you sit on these thorns
You know it's the only way
C'est la vie en rose

Do you rememeber those stars
That you said you'd forget
But I'll make a bet
That you don't owe me that

Do you remember those stars
Can't you see that it's time
Au revoir mon ami
Mon Amour
Track Name: (If It's No) Then Just Say No
Looking down at the water, I can see you again
Float your eyes towards me, please, this is where I fell in love
Remember me as I was, please, this is where I fell in love

You look so good all purpled up, standing in the snow
I'll wait for you to ask me in, or just to send me home
Tell it to me yes or no, because I can't rely on maybes
And if it's no then just say no, so I don't rely on you

You look so good with your bright red cheeks and your hair blown by the wind
I bet that you would like the warm, so I'll ask you to come in
I don't know what I want right now, so I'll just drive you crazy
I'm no certainty, darling don't rely on me

I'm having such a good time
So let the good times roll
I'll take your hand and squeeze it
Like I'm hanging on

Let's do this again sometime, I know the perfect place
I mean if you want, it's up to you, but I've got time to waste
I act like you've caught me off guard, I don't know what to say now
I know that lie, get your coat and follow me
Track Name: Running Backwards
It's another page we wrote
Now every day feels like a hurricane

I wouldn't stay the same
I am broken, piece by piece
Think of every way you set me free
My heart beats for it

The sun sets in the east today
I know I'm wrong, you know another way
But it's so far
Running backwards
In the shoes you gave to me
And so we go on

I'm sitting at the shore
Without a trace, I'm lost at sea again

Why do you try to plead to me?
When you've never seemed so far away
And the more you slip, the less you say
I can't feel you here anymore
Track Name: Our Eyes
Take me to the place that
We won't know in two years
And I'll take a picture
Keep the photo
Just delay what's next

If there was more time then
Believe it I would take
Every second
Just to ask myself
What's old these days?

And with our eyes
We can see the night sky

I'll piece together what I
Can't take through with me
Or I'll try
It won't get easier
To erase these thoughts

Come with me, and I'll make you see
Track Name: Half Past Nine
I love windy days
When your hair gets blown in your eyes
And we play way too loud
Half past nine

I'll never see the clouds
Behind the silver lining
So I'll stay stuck in my ways

I love when I sleep
Because it's easier to get lost in the tide
Rest my sore knees
My eyes

I hope with my hands
Cross my fingers and curl my toes
That my smile will disguise achey bones

Can't you see
Now is our time
What's the danger?
Track Name: Way Back Home
It's a long way back home, further back than I can see
I stuff my hands into my pockets, just cotton and receipts
The ice I walk is paper thin
I collected us stones, it felt like I was floating away
I won't be a balloon lost on a windy day
I'll take each step one by one

So when you feel disgraced, out-of-place and abused
Step into my feather coat and fly away
I'll be with you
But I'm a mess when you're gone
So come back soon
And if you don't then just stay safe
I might be miles and miles away
But I'll never forget you
Track Name: Don't Make The Call
Don't make the call
It's too much all in all
You don't think it is
You'd know

Be young
Be your own
Be young
Be beautiful

Young are your eyes
But you cloud up your mind
Give yourself your own time
Like it was

Don't take my hand
'Cause you don't understand
You might make all these plans
But we don't
