Track Name: Hello
Hello
Is there anybody in there

The snow
Is falling in Times Square

Below
the musty smell of stale air

Go slow
Take me out, take me anywhere

Hello
There must be someone in thete

The snow
Is melting in Times Square

Below
The musty smell of stale air

Go slow
Take me out, take me anywhere
Track Name: In The Night
The hum of a million lives lived
They rumble and they drift
Relentlessly they lift
And the colours all shift
And the ones I missed in the night

Sheets of rain fall all around
And down it pours
Distant echos of all that
Was here before

The buzz of a million lives lived
From the edges where they drift
Restlessly they lift
And my mind begins to shift
And the ones I missed in the night
Track Name: Clouds
Open up my bright eyes
In the hazy evening light
As the sun sets in the orange sky
Is this my last flight?

As a new moon rises
Starlight breaks through
Above the clouds the sun always shines
Another storm brews

Up in the clouds
I'm looking down
But I can't hear a sound here
Up in the clouds
I'm looking down
I'm waiting to be found

Am I freezing or am I already frost?
Am I losing or am I already lost?

Up in the clouds
I'm looking down
But I can't hear a sound here
Up in the clouds
I'm looking down
I'm waiting to be drowned here

Am I looking?
Am I lost?
Track Name: Morning
Wake (Feel the sun)
Open up (Your eyes)

Low clouds lie
In Fine lines
All across skies
smoke from camp fires

Rise up
A new day is dawning
Stand up
Another day is calling
Reach out
The new hope of morning
Move on
It's ever changing

The day is breaking
Our dreams are ending
We will forget them when the light comes
Track Name: Manhattan
Now I'm walking the streets
Of a city
I don't live in
And I don't have my keys

On adventures again,
Though the road wends
It never ends
And I'm caught by the breeze

Yes I'm walking the streets
of Manhattan
I don't live here
Not a cent on me

Now the worms they will glow
And the owls they will screech
And the fish will weave
Bumble little bee

Take me out tonight
When the day has died
And the fire flies
Fade into the light
Track Name: The Great Plains
I fail, I float over the Great Plains
I fade, away, leave only my remains

After all the smoke has cleared
I will be found

Today, only today, once I have been here
I drift, away, I leave behind my fear

And, when we're gone, we can go back to where we belong
Now, that we're gone, we can go back to where we are from

We will rise
In the smoke
Of the ash
And the oak

In the dust
In the mire
In the dirt
In the fire

We will grow
In the leaves
In the woods
In the trees

In the grass
In the fields
In the heath
In the seeds

In the sea
And the waves
In the wind
And the rain

It all comes round again

We will rest
In the peace
Of the sun
In the east

We will flow
In the creek
In the snow
In the sleet

In the sea
And the waves
In the wind
And the rain

In the sea
And the waves
In the wind
And the rain

It all comes around again
Track Name: Breaks
Breaks upon the shore
The tide rolls in
And drags me out
Beneath the waves
Beneath the sea
Into the blue

Is this, just a dream?
Am I awake?
Am I asleep?
Pull me back
Eat me up
Swallow me down

I descend, I decline
Underneath the ocean waves
Down I drift
Down I sink
And settle down
Track Name: Red Kite
Oh red kite soar up high
A forked tail rise up and glide
And twist and turn in thermals
And bank and drift in wide circles

And lift me up
In a thousand suns
Across the lake
This was my miss

I plummet, I plunge now
I stumble, I tumble down
I break up, I capsize
Unfurled across the orange sky

And lift me up
In a thousand suns
Across the lake
This was my mistake
It never ends
I won't forget
Your dying light is still warm
