Hindsight 03:20
I can see it in reflective light My perspective has been shifted right-side up Once oblivious - becoming obvious Staring me deep in the eyes Slowly I’m starting to realise In hindsight We’ll overcome the fading daylight And follow the winds of change Time can only try to give us insight ‘Cause we will never stop the fight The sun will darken, the moon will not give light Stars will fall from the night sky The world’s not concerned with our lessons learned Holding us ransom for life In hindsight We’ll overcome the fading daylight And follow the winds of change Time can only try to give us insight ‘Cause we will never stop this fight Soon the fire within will reignite Breaking you out of the cage Time can only try to remind us To fly with the hawk in the night

Break & Fall 03:42
My heart’s on my sleeve and thinking kills me What do I want, what do you want, what do we want? Tell me. Just wrap it up, please What do we got? One shot at this now? So we free fall down that dark hole And we hope for a hand to catch our hearts in the end So we don’t fall again Here we go Everyone talks, but nobody’s right It’s a fading light You just see it through your own eyes Tonight the weatherman’s out searching daylight We know the sun shines when your and my shadows collide Don’t bend back man You’ll break & fall Don’t lose hold and let go Sooner than you hope for Sooner than you know Here we go Everyone talks, but nobody’s right It’s a fading light You just see it through your own eyes So don’t bend back man You’ll break & fall Don’t lose hold and let go Sooner than you hope for Sooner than you know So here we go Everyone talks, but nobody’s right It’s a fading light Just see it through your own eyes Here we go Everyone talks, but nobody’s right It’s a fading light You just see it through your own eyes Break and fall

There is a mountain in my town Rising up between two oceans It is the keeper of a gateway Leading to a flood of emotions And I could sit here forever Listening as the wind keeps calling my name Between the grasslands and the thorn trees Figuring out what it’s trying to say I’m losing my heart in an urban wilderness Trying to find my way in this town I’m holding on to these signs of happiness While I’m keeping my head in the clouds I see the first light of the sunrise Striking the crest of the shore break Along the coastline, under blue skies We’ll be skipping stones ’til daybreak And I can sit here forever Watching as the shadows grow tall Between the city and the three peaks The Southern Cross appears at nightfall I’m losing my heart in an urban wilderness Trying to find my way in this town I’m holding on to these signs of happiness While I’m keeping my head in the clouds

You, you and I both know We were never meant to stay here In the unknown They never thought we’d see All the things we ever dreamed of When we were young Come along You don’t have to face this alone Wait a minute for your heart To sink into the sweetest feeling You’ll ever know Just stay afloat by my side Let your emotions Guide you home Say whatever’s on your mind Nothing you can say will scare me this time Try to let me inside I can help you make the broken things alright Lay your head on my chest So that you can hear my heartbeat Start to race Breathe into my neck As we synchronise and dissipate Disappear without a trace Like floating stardust into outer space You make me see Beauty hiding in everything All of it’s real Hold your breath to feel what I feel

Nomadic Love 03:44
Where do we go when you follow the road Leading you far from the places you know Into the other side of the world Where nobody cares if you stay or you go How do you find the piece of mind When you’ve left everything behind Just take my hand and forget the past Pick up the map that we used to dream of We can find a way to escape over distant troubled waters Seeking love, adventure and fate in the infinite abyss Together we can be nomadic lovers And navigate this never ending journey Where do you go when you follow the road Taking you far where your heart overflows Never look back on the steps that you take Many mistakes will show you the way How do you fight these runaway years Limbo lock and I just dissapear Stop motion is closing in It gets harder to restart in the end We can find a way to escape over distant troubled waters Seeking love, adventure and fate in the infinite abyss Together we can be nomadic lovers And navigate this never ending journey

Baby don’t you remember How we fell in love over that December we spent Chasing the sunlight all the time Trying to forget the moment we stopped to feel alive Baby don’t you remember How we fell in love over that December we spent Chasing the sunlight all the time Trying to forget the moment we stopped to feel alive
