Track Name: Mayflies
a book by Matt Haig called How to Stop Time inspired this song. it's about a secret race of people who live for hundreds of years. they call the rest of humanity mayflies, because of their comparatively short lifespan. the more you know!

--------------------------------------------------------------

we're the mayflies, buzzing around this town
the time may fly but maybe it's all all right
i'll running write you poetry for now,
about how our lives are running out
Track Name: Song in the Night
whoa oh oh-oh
she wants to be a lot of
different things
oh-oh-oh

and maybe she's a genius
ahead of the curve
and maybe you can see this
in her eyes, oh girl



i need you like a song
in the night
when nothing but a song
can make it right

when all the light has gone
and sound is all you want
the ache to go back home
is strongest when i'm with you



i know you feel it too
it's all in the way you looked
right past the sky
whoa whoa oh


stared out of the window
like the words you didn't know
to a song you hadn't heard
were haunting you


left that coffee shop with the TVs
and walked for hours through the streets
we talked about who we could be
the city didn't see us leave



oh, i need you like a song
in the night (in the night, oh, in the night)
when nothing but a song
can make it right

when all the light has gone
and sound is all you want
the ache to go back home
is strongest when i'm with you

whoa oh oh-oh
whoa oh oh-oh
whoa oh oh-oh
when i'm with you



oh, i need you like a song
in the night
when nothing but a song
can make it right

when all the light has gone
and sound is all you want
the ache to go back home
is strongest when i'm with you
Track Name: If I
if i could tell stories with that wistful type of joy
If my songs were strong enough to get through all the noise
if the curtains opened and our wishes all came true
perhaps i'd find the perfect line, the one you listen for

(you know, when you put on a song you really love, but there's really just one line that you're waiting for the whole time, and if you miss it you have to, like, go back and... and listen again)



when you're singing along to the cold that's in your bones
and when your eyelids are trying to convince you that there's no hope
when the marrow collapses and you're left with the unknown
my hope is that this song can guide you home



so if the world is waiting and forgetting to make sense
and if you're watching news reports
maybe that's the signal to remember who you are
and what you have, and where you'll be, and why you watch the stars


i'm sorry, i miss you so much
i worry we're gonna lose touch
i'll say it and i'll say it again
it's gonna be all right in the end



when you're singing along to the cold that's in your bones
and when your eyelids are trying to convince you that there's no hope
when the sparrow collapses and you're left with the unknown

my hope is that this song can guide you
i hope you know this song's beside you
i hope, i hope this song might take you home
Track Name: Everything Looks Perfect
light up the dust on my aeroplane window
impossible world of tomorrow, whoa-oh-oh
my troubles shrink with the fields and the freeways
we're so much closer to heaven



whoa oh oh oh
where can we go
whoa oh oh oh
you and me both

whoa oh
whoa oh
whoa oh
whoa oh



something is given from cities above
falling right out of the sky, whoa-oh
bright shining like silver and lilting with love
falling right into the ocean

into the sea
what will we be
and how will we know
whoa-oh

whoa oh
whoa oh
whoa oh
whoa oh

whoa oh
whoa oh
whoa oh
whoa oh

whoa oh
whoa oh
whoa oh
whoa oh

whoa oh
whoa oh
whoa oh
whoa oh

whoa oh
whoa oh
whoa oh
whoa oh

whoa oh
whoa oh
whoa oh
whoa oh

whoa oh oh oh
where should we go (where should we go?)
whoa oh oh oh
i think that you know

and if we were free
what could we need
if we were free
who would we be

i hear
you're here
i'm here
we're here

i hear
you're here
i'm here
we're here

i hear
you're here
i'm here
we're here
