Track Name: Til We Part
Asleep on the subway
Body clocks kicking in
The veins of the freeway
Bring Jacks back to Jills

As vows are foreclosing
The parting of souls
Indefinite journeys
Slip back into role

Short affairs
You‘ve had your share
Cruel to be kind
No tears, no demise

This pack of cards fell from our tree
Hit every branch, broke everything

Mum when will the sadness end?
Dig deeper protect myself

Stick to the facts, make your next move
Dressed up in black, yeah you can‘t lose

Dad, when will this sadness end?
Dig deeper ride out the storm

Ear splitting rowing
False token remorse
Hallmark-coined farewells
Par for the course

A timeshare parent
A boy needs a dad
Got married so young
We‘re all that we had

False surprise
Kids cover your eyes
Greased palms
No tears, no qualms

This pack of cards fell from our tree
Hit every branch, broke everything

Mum when will the sadness end?
Dig deeper protect myself

Stick to the facts, make your next move
Dressed up in black, yeah you can‘t lose

Dad, when will this sadness end?
Dig deeper ride out the storm

The dotted line
In blood we‘ll sign
A shift in stakes
Less give, more take

Wandering eyes brought your demise
It meant nothing babe at the time

Mum when will the sadness end?
Dig deeper protect myself

Follow us back our loves for free
Indefinite, encompassing

Dad, when will this sadness end?
Dig deeper ride out the storm
Track Name: What You Mean To Me
You give yourself away
With every word you say
I know it’s not that late
To get it back this time

What you mean to me
Words they could not feel
We’ve blown it all away
Let’s get it back

You could be half a world away
I can’t say the things I want to say

And when it got to tough
I'm prone to mess it up
In cautious tones always
In fearful holding back

What you mean to me
Can’t someone help us out
To get it through to you
To get it through and

You could be half a world away
I can’t say the things I want to say
Green or blue, any shade will do
See right through the hazel in front of you
Pale or grey a different shade today
You can’t see what you mean to me

Like dreams you can’t recall
In Autumn or was it Fall?
A motion springing forth
To drop this cold recourse

I confess I’m not the man I was
Under grey dark rainy skies
Follow me to southern beaches
Help me find

You could be half a world away
I can’t say the things I want to say
Green or blue, any shade will do
See right through the hazel in front of you
Pale or grey a different shade today
You can’t see what you mean to me
