Little Signs EP

There's a half moon high There's people in the sea it's a low tide I shouldn't be smoking I've got a heartbeat I've got a new fear Speaking with clarity What do you want to hear? How do you walk in someone elses shoes? I'm an old man I've messed up many times I've been missing All of the little signs How do people fall in love with each other? How do we all fall in love with each other?

Night Fox 03:41
We're breaking into school after dark Make no sound with your footsteps I know where there's a gap in the trees They put up higher fences We roll before we go And trace the tracks of animals I learned the routes around To not set off the light security You don't know what I saw What I said, the front door closed behind me But I've got all I need And my pocket watch You could be walking downtown You could be in a foreign land No language, no alphabet Don't worry The world ain't ready for you yet We roll before we go And trace the tracks of animals I learned the routes around To not set off the light security

Felt A Love 05:03
Okay, so I'm standing by the kerb on Grey's Inn Road And I've been waiting 15 minutes Cos you haven't showed We'd arranged to meet by Starbucks I feel kind of directionless as I realise there's about three of them In a quarter-mile radius So I've got two choices I can either stay put Watch all the people pass or slowly circle 'round I don't know the odds of seeing a familiar face In a city with this many people in a crowd Now ours is a history characterised By meetings and encounters that happened by chance They punctuate a midnight sky Little specks of light Between the lifetimes that we spent apart Just then I catch the sight of your eyes looking at mine And you do this little thing, this tiny movement Where you just tilt your head And I'm the only person in the world Living or dead

Balance Lost 04:15
There is a balance that has been upset We've suffered a loss that we need to address You dwell in the gutter with your head in the sky Never stop playing your nightmare lullabies The callouses on the tips of your fingers A symptom of playing 6 steel strings forever The face of a friend will remain hidden Behind a veil and you wish You could see them one last time And just say goodbye... It's good to have known you But I don't believe We're gonna see you on the other side So goodbye And I hope I am wrong I hope I am wrong But you can't change facts with hope alone So goodbye And you can't be replaced With somebody who cares I can still hear your voice But there's nobody there The stage is empty And I am a try-hard Yes I am a try-hard Not trying hard enough Becoming a victim of noise abatement We must move it downstairs Into the basement Our enemies faces Will remain hidden And they don't believe in direct action No they don't believe in direct action So goodbye But I don't believe We're gonna see you on the other side So goodbye And I hope I am wrong I hope I am wrong But you can't change facts with hope alone I know cos I've tried It's good to have known you But I don't believe We're gonna see you on the other side So goodbye And I hope I am wrong I hope I am wrong But you can't change facts with hope alone So goodbye
