Track Name: Boat
If photographs could tell a story
Would these postcards be black in the white
Shaded by the leaves that bind so freely
Cracks in the trees let through the light

Do the trees whisper in the sidewalk
Do the waves in the water talk

If I sketch out an atlas in the lakeskin
Drift past wood as I wait
If I take back the compass to the water
Would I find you or would it be too late

Should I put the flash on the camera
I'd be scared for it to all flicker by
As we floated in the glitter of the meare
I didn't expect your reflection in the sky

Do the trees whisper in the sidewalk
Do the waves in the water talk

If I sketch out an atlas in the lakeskin
Drift past wood as I wait
If I take back the compass to the water
Would I find you or would it be too late
Track Name: Miss A Turn
Pick a card, any card,
Turn it over and never see it again
Those were the days when your worst choice
was catching a bus or a train

But I know now life is just a game
You win you lose you learn to take the blame

And we all keep spinning in circles
And climbing up ladders and falling down snakes
We all get to land on a payday
We all have to miss a turn
But we learn

Higher or lower,
Noone in this world really has a clue
You just roll the dice and don't think twice
Cos somehow you're gonna make it through

But I know now life is just a game
You win you lose you learn to take the blame

And we all keep spinning in circles
And climbing up ladders and falling down snakes
We all get to land on a payday
We all have to miss a turn
But we learn

Pick a card, any card,
But for heaven's sake don't let anyone see
Ace of spades, or queen of hearts,
Maybe a joker it will be

But I know now life is just a game
You win you lose you learn to take the blame

And we all keep spinning in circles
And climbing up ladders and falling down snakes
We all get to land on a payday
We all have to miss a turn
But we learn
Track Name: Faces
In this crowd of faces
I can't see yours
In this world of places
With so many wars

In this clockwork of hours
There's not a minute to waste
In this lifetime of years
We should quicken our pace

The thing with faces,
They're never the same
So if you can't see someone's
When you think of their name,
Why waste the time and wait
You should find them before too late
