Track Name: Slipping
Days slipping through the net
It's unusual that I should forget
Sun goes in now
Weight from my eyes
Fade to blackness
Perfect disguise

Slipping into other people's pictures
Oh it's the easiest way to travel

Congratulations was it easy to achieve
Oh helping you with your bags was the easiest way to leave
And I don't know what happens next
But it won't be what we expect

Straight from a lifetime of waiting for playtime
Still the surprise at the end of the daytime
Trying to get out of the rising tide
Think all the things that you left inside
Oh it's unusual

Days days days days

Congratulations was it easy to achieve
Oh helping you with your bags was the easiest way to leave
And I don't know what happens next
But it won't be what we expect
Track Name: Silver Purse
I remember when you told me about the real things
About dreaming and believing in the daydreams
You told me how you'd see things the way they'd seem to you
I remember when you told me about things still left to do
But things are hazy except in hindsight
How were we to know it was the last night

You told me we can't make time slow its pace for us
And we can't lock the stars inside a silver purse
Now's the time to let them shine, the sky will always change
Things you feel, the things you know will never stay the same
I remember the last things you told me
And I replied
See you
In January
In January

So always take the chance you get to say what's on your mind
It's difficult to catch up when words leave you behind
Seize the day the poets say and some day you will find
You can trust today
More than tomorrow
You can trust today more than tomorrow

I remember the last things you told me
And I replied
See you
In January
In January

So always take the chance you get to play a different tune
Don't forget a heart that beats can never love too soon
Seize the day the poets say and some day you will know
You can trust today
More than tomorrow
You can trust today more than tomorrow
Track Name: Something In The Wine
I think there must be something in the water
My eyes seem to be flooding in the rain
And if there's nothing in the water there is something in the wine
I'm telling myself stories that I swore I'd left behind

Is it really such a mystery
That a favourite living enemy should come back to me
From the ashes of a memory?
It just doesn't seem right
There must be something in the wine

The history books are rising from the flame
The pages filled with your forgotten name
I'm mesmerised by memories of battles that we waged
Who said you could come back here rattling my cage?

Is it really such a mystery
That a favourite living enemy should come back to me
From the ashes of a memory?
It just doesn't seem right
There must be something in the wine

But while I'm lucid there'll be no more abuses
While I'm lucid there'll be no more excuses
There is no final happiness to capture
And there isn't going to be a final chapter
But I swear there must be something in the water
Or something in the wine

I think there must be something in the water
My eyes seem to be flooding in the rain
And if there's nothing in the water there is something in the wine
I'm telling myself stories that I swore I'd left behind

Is it really such a mystery
That a favourite living enemy should come back to me
From the ashes of a memory?
It just doesn't seem right
There must be something in the wine
Oh it doesn't seem right
There must be something in the wine
Track Name: Crossing The Bridge
Gave you a start when she came in last night
Shock of a face in the still
Takes time to settle down
She's not your little sunshine
She's the pale moon
In your room

What to do

You can't take the risk
Can't take the alternative
Can't take the kiss if you know it's the last
Now you're crossing the bridge
But you've nothing to burn it with
Peering through mist as she waits in the past
Let her go
Let her go

Sundays in markets and catnaps in bookshops
She's there by your side every day
Every day
She watches you burn every tiny memento
Catches your tears as the flames warm the sky
She understands all that you've been through
But she's not your reason why
She's not your little sunshine

You can't take the risk
You can't take the alternative
Can't take the kiss if you know it's the last
Now you're crossing the bridge
But you've nothing to burn it with
Peering through mist as she waits in the past
Let her go
Let her go

She's not your little sunshine
She's the pale moon
