Track Name: one day
ooooh
whoa

so i'm here again
things changed a lot
outside of heaven
that's all we've got

but one day, you'll remember all our dreams
one day, there'll be nothing in between
one day, ooh
oh, one day, oh



there’s nothing here, there’s nothing but you
there’s nothing here, there’s nothing but you
there’s nothing here, there’s nothing but you
there’s nothing but you



i could find some objects
they might last a while
i could write some letters
it might take some time

i could build a tower
glowing in the night
i could light it up
but it wouldn’t feel right



hold us in your hand
help us understand
there’s nothing here, there’s nothing but you
take us where you are

there’s nothing here, there’s nothing but you
take us where you are
there’s nothing here, there’s nothing but you
there’s nothing here, there’s nothing but you

there’s nothing here, there’s nothing but you
there’s nothing here, there’s nothing but you
Track Name: without mountains
i wait
all day
for you
but nothing ever happens

i’ve got something in my eye
i just bit my tongue
didn’t get much sleep last night
i think i’m coming down with something

i don’t know what to think about
i don’t know what to think about
i don’t know what to think about
i don’t know what to think about
i don’t know what to think about



i don’t know where i’m going
don’t know what i’ll do
i don’t know what i’m writing
but i hope that it’s true

i’ve got so much to say
and so much to lose
and so much to be proven wrong about

without mountains i hike for days
without nightmares i stay awake
i’m all right but i’m still afraid
and i don’t wanna fall away



i don’t
make plans
i only
try to understand

there’s no one else like me
and there’s no one else like you
but there’s no one left to be, so
what are we gonna do?

i don’t know what to think about
i don’t know what to think about
i don’t know what to think about



i don’t know where i’m going
don’t know what to do
i don’t know what i’m running from
or running to

i don’t know what to say,
don’t know what’s true
i just throw it away
and stand here in this room

without mountains i hike for days
without nightmares i stay awake
i’m all right but i’m still afraid
cuz i don’t wanna fall away
Track Name: no more
oh vastness asking what could be
within these flames of tapestry

perhaps you thought that i would speak


for death and life
to live and die
oh vivid light
there’s no more time
Track Name: Butterflies
it might be wise to hesitate
but i suspect that it’s too late
i’ve no defence against your eyes
these are somebody else’s butterflies



i’m just trying to figure something out
precisely what are these wings about?
am i in love, am i in love? is that
why i’m above the ground



Butterflies are distinguished from moths by having clubbed or dilated antennae, and being active in the day.
if only i could distinguish
my feelings like that



i’m just trying to figure something out
precisely what are these wings about?
these butterflies are all right
but some time to spend with you would be nice



i wake up early and bright
i look up into the sky
i look the sun in the eye

then i remember my dream
it was a message for me
“don’t fry your retinas, please”

yeah, well, that’s fair enough, i guess. can’t really argue with that one

i’m having feelings and stuff
i think i’m falling in love!
i think i’m falling in love



i’m just trying to figure something out
precisely what are these wings about?
because i feel, like i could fly

(like i could just, literally just.. take off, you know)

i’m just trying to figure something out
precisely what are these wings about?
with these butterflies i’m all right now,
high above the ground
Track Name: back around
the streets of hamilton
defeat this traveller
her feet can't carry her
and she feels just barely alive

there's never any night time here,
never any rest for a weary soul,
never any room for the weary hopes
of those who wander down the road

and it comes back around again
yes it comes back around again

she pleads with the empty streets:
"redeem this wasted evening,"
–"i don't care how much you need it,
i won't show you my secrets."

but she walks all night
she feels all right
cause deep inside
there's a distant light

and it comes back around again
yes it comes back around again
and it doesn't matter when
it'll come back in the end

it'll come back in the end



"I'd walk outta the house, and I'd – I'd look at the trees... and smell the flowers, and – and I'd run across the lawn and lie down under a tree and read a book. A book of poems, maybe."
Track Name: Frost
something isn't right
i thought you would be here by now
it's getting pretty late at night
but you said it would be warm inside

i can feel the frost
forming underneath my feet
might i be mistaken?
could it be that i'm still asleep



you're not here to lead me down another
garden path again, are you?
i guess it's for the best
it wouldn't have worked out, anyway

we live in different worlds
you don't have to say it
so take your spaceship far away from here,
my love



i guess i'll be okay
it's not like there's another choice
thanks for coming anyway
it's good, just to hear your voice

one last time, ooohh
ooohh, whoa
ahhh, ooohh
ooohh, oooooh

can you see your star from here?
i guess you've gotta go back home
gotta leave me here
alone



you're not here to lead me down another
garden path again, are you?
i guess it's for the best
it wouldn't have worked out, anyway


(one last time) we live in different worlds
you don't have to say it (this doesn't feel right)
so take your spaceship far away from here,
my love
Track Name: be with
moving in circles far above
talking about the things we love

you know there’s nothing here to fear
there’s nothing here to fear

cause i love you
i’ll be with you
i love you
i'll be with you

i love you
i'll be with you
i love you
i'll be with you

cause i love you
i'll be with you
i love you
i love you
