Track Name: Autumn
You grew young as I grew older
I thought I saw your soul
I used to say I didn't judge you
But I'm afraid I do

And as the leaves tumble from the trees
We open up our arms
And greet them with relief
Dancing in the breeze

Cause yeah I'm ready for the winter
I've had enough of summer
It sheds all its light on
All my flaws


And we'll be in Autumn


And I said to you, I won't waste my youth
Pandering and smothering with you
The blistering winds, and the blistering words that
I could say to you

But I'll miss the swallows, the way they fly
I'll miss their saving grace
And in the dark that comes quicker
I'll lose sight of your face


And we'll be in Autumn
Track Name: Eastern Shores
I said you can't have all your dreams
Especially involving me
Your silhouette against the sea
Forever in my memory

You take up so much space just by making that face
Yet again running late, yet again in a state
You say to me that your heart's under attack
And I should know that, yeah I should know that


But I wish you wouldn't say things like you said on that day
And I wish we could go back
To how we were before, stood on eastern shores

On eastern shores, on eastern shores


See, I love this friend for seven years
How I wish I had him here
He tucked my hair behind my ear
Oh how I wish I had him here


And I wish you wouldn't say things like you said on that day
And I wish you could go back
To how you were before, stood on eastern shores

On eastern shores, on eastern shores
On eastern shores, on eastern shores
Track Name: Violets in Snow
I apologise for being in this state
Today I buckled under, I couldn't hold the weight
And there's a dark and empty hollow in my brain
At the back of my mind

And I said I don't want to feel that way again
But there's nothing to hold on to when I'm lost in that haze
I feel misrepresented, misunderstood
Has the world gone blind?


This is not a choice, I swear it's not
I wanted to hear your voice to pull me out the dark
Lying in your arms I'll dream of violets in snow
And you'll go quietly before the dawn


Well there's a crowd of people now, they're talking at me loud
And they've started asking questions, but I've got no response
So I hold my hands over my ears and I pray
For another day


This is not a choice, I swear it's not
I wanted to hear your voice to pull me out the dark
Lying in your arms I'll dream of violets in snow
And you'll go quietly before the dawn
Track Name: Crows Fly
I think it's time to go home now
It's been seven weeks and I've been at this far too long
I want to be where I belong

And I can't take my eyes off the sun today
There's clouds all about but he's pushing and pushing on through
He light's up my face

And on the train I can see my reflection
On the window my face transparently reflected
And the clouds that lie behind my eyes

And I really thought that I knew the way
To be by myself and not think of you for a while
I think about you all the time


And I can't believe that this is what it's all about
And I can't believe I still haven't figured you out
But I want to try


And I felt the need to express it
To come up with words and satisfy this whim
Make you feel everything

And it comes in waves punctuated by faces
And then I'm surrounded and the tide is coming in
I'm getting ready for a swim


And I can't believe that this is what it's all about
And I can't believe I still haven't figured it out
But I'm gonna try
