Someone, somewhere If ever there’s an absence in your heart Make a mark for me I’ll still be here, i will be here It cost me so dearly Two years to wait for the swallow tails to fall Forever absolution from the past Is all they asked of me I still feel there, i still feel there Celebrate a smoking gun All this blame to be hung On closing doors and setting suns What became of the good we knew Down in flames, up in subterfuge A restless mind misunderstood Or just the bitter ashes of a loss struck youth
2.
Closing time, suffering another silent red tide Down by the bridge and bride Oh, where to begin, what started with Fairhurst’s vision came cardinal sin In the howling wind A north east cove where the fallen run But the flag is flown The crane once rose to flourish On this midnight shore Ploughing through her youth, skirting streets To fleeting arms that once warmed you Now a noose around you Troubled water blue, her breath evaporates Below the pink, pink moon as she gives out to A north east cove where the fallen run But the flag is flown The crane once rose to flourish On this midnight shore
3.
The streets are walled with tenements Like a canyon swallows the sun With taxi rank around the steeple The church yard lives alone Kicking holes in fences found Wipe the slate clean, dust it down All is forgotten, drowned in the auburn Light that traps itself inside these Reckless nights All was forgiven but lost on the seventh Day that found itself behind these Endless nights As buildings fall and voices pass Like a slideshow in the rain Sleeping bags hold broken souls Between their loveless days Burning bridges to the ground Flood the senses, wash them out All is forgotten, drowned in the auburn Light that traps itself inside these Reckless nights Sirens wail, starlings swarm All these burnt out faces leave me worn All is forgotten, drowned in the auburn Light that traps itself inside these Reckless nights All was forgiven, through the lost and hidden Days that found us left behind Deep beneath our lives As we wrapped ourselves inside these Endless nights
4.
There are certain things that live in vain From a photo to a letter in the grave So raise your glasses to those who have passed See the candle light their colours on the mast Let their memory sleep Until it has been woken in the dream Break water sweet Heart is in the sea You raced in the shallows There are certain things we’re told to fear Darling, everybody moves away from here Come celebrate the shedding of the chain See the weary souls stand praying in the rain Shake the moment down Before the ashes settle on the ground Break water sweet Heart is in the sea You raced in the shallows Break water sweet Searching for the seed You are in shadows under trees Break water sweet Blood that only gave We all condemned you to the grave
5.
I’m not out to win friends He takes aim and he offers out a hand I’m not in this for my good health He breaths, bereft, absent of his good self Was there ever gladness A weakness in the scorn If ever there was fondness here Surely it has gone I’m not here to speak sense He takes a drink, losing trail of thought again I’m the absence in your eyes I’m the ringing in your ears He smiles as retribution gently reappears Is there ever gladness A flutter in the blame Son, if there was fondness here Goodness knows it’s strayed Love only came here to go So I’ll see this course alone Restlessly, i know The darkness gathers at my door This path is walked and set in stone This life is but a passing glow If ever bad blood lingered here In ailing arms, once held so dear If ever there was gladness here Surely it has come
6.
Sleepless eyes We should get out of here Draw a line Below the night We gotta ride Breathless or otherwise It’s never if not tonight To be out tearing wild There’s a world hidden in darkness Where we ought to go There’s a light beyond the heath Where the feelings wash over us Nothing finds Me like a bruising sky Above the river line Down by the North Carr Light We’ve got a right To spend our fading lives Just wasting the night trying to talk And forget why we fight There’s a world hidden in darkness We ought to go There’s a light beyond the heath Where the feelings wash over There’s a world hidden in darkness Where we ought to go There’s a love beyond the doubt Where the feelings wash over All we’ve ever known

He’s a model of the man That took a shot at love so they would understand His hollow words and modest plan What he’d change to have her To change the girl she was back then A stark runner in the world Following a voice in the dark A stark summer in the girl Whites of her eyes free and wild He’s a mirror to the past Troubled by the life he built to forget everything But he swears it all, some day, will end The repetitions in the reasons to be here Are gone again A stark runner in the world Following a voice in the dark A stark summer in the girl Whites of her eyes free and wild
8.
Sweet satellite New as the night, celestial sight for sore eyes Moving light Waxing away, in the dark of the day she belongs And now I’m telescoping to find those rays Her light turns the tides and the days When deep in flight She’ll hypnotize any regular guys with a gaze We sleep inside Heavenly face lighting the place where you lay Move in tight Some light the way to the opposite side Of the dawn And now I’m telescoping to find those rays Her light turns the tides and the days And now I’m barely coping without those ways Her life turns the tides and the days
9.
Some weight in the words Might change you for the worse Some understated opener Some thread of who you were Some feign in between The gone, the should have been Some overrated empathy Some glimmer of a dream Lost in a language of faint theory There’s a love Cracked, unbowed above Just the love Though cruel and maybe reckless, virtuous Some flurry or burst Could make the damage worth Some undulated sense of curse Some darker quip of verse Some day a subtle feat Lays waste to the ordinary Some slight of heart simplicity Some struggle to beat free Travel in lines of vague symmetry There’s a love Cracked, unbowed above Just the love Though cruel and maybe reckless, virtuous There’s a love That finds you in the end There’s a love That gets you in the end There’s a love That finds you in the end There’s a love That gets us in the end
10.
We were only trying To make a little fun Take in the morning sun Unaware, laying bare the birches gone We were hardly thinking A subtle change would come The middle fades as one Unbeknown, a seed was sown A growing love alone Hesitating moon Enveloped hearts, the fall and bloom Neon city gloom We were barely sixteen Two brothers by the light Bellefield through Small’s Wynd Like the river fades, the hours strayed We whiled away the night We were only trying To change the world it seemed Kicking through the fallen leaves I’ll be there just laying bare the birches To the breeze Hesitating moon Enveloped hearts, the fall and bloom So walk a while with me Throw your arm around me Glowing city gloom
