Track Name: Yellow Lines
It's me, I'm listening for you
It's me, and are you even there?
I'm wishing you would call
I'm wishing too many things

It's me, just returning the space
You gave me when I asked
I've turned us into strangers
And I want what we had before

(Chorus)
So here I am, and tell me
If you still care somehow
'Cause you won't cross the yellow lines
Between us now
Between us now

And we were like sisters
The way we loved and hated
Too alike for our own good
And never out of things to say

And I never knew you'd push away
So far from my shore
And I've been trying to get back
To you ever since

(Chorus)
So here I am, and tell me (Here I am)
If you still care somehow (I still care)
'Cause you won't cross the yellow lines (Yellow lines)
Between us now (Between us now)
Between us now
Track Name: Uncertain Smile
Eyes that pull me in
To the wells of your soul
Lips that always have
That uncertain smile
Heavy with life and frost

Hands that want to touch
Something soft and light
Feet that have carried you
Through everything
Heavy with life and frost

(Chorus)
But let me be that place of light and warmth
Let me show you how good the world can be
Oh how the world can be
Just let me show you how

Mouth drips in words
I've never heard before
A mind with thoughts
That draw me into you
Heavy with life and frost

You're all alone among thousands
And standing in your own bubble
There's no one else like you
No no one else
Like you

(Chorus)

Eyes that pull me in
To the wells of your soul
Lips that always have
That uncertain smile
Heavy with life and frost
Track Name: I Don't Write Love Songs
I don't write love songs
It's just not my style
Not 'cause I think they're useless
And not worth my while
It's more that everything
Has been said before
And anything I'd write
Would just be one more

I don't write love songs
In the standard way
Of how "I want you
And need you night and day"
That might work for some
Who have nothing deep to say
When all they feel is lust
And have nothing else to convey

But you and I
We're like two raindrops
Falling til the earth makes us stop
Then we flow along
Through the same dreams
Carried by the current
Toward the open seas
That's us
That's us
That's us

So I don't write love songs
In the standard way
Of how "I was nothing before you"
And other such clichés
Because our story is different
From the usual radio fare
That plays in every store
And follows us everywhere

So I may not write love songs
But I'll write this one for you.
Track Name: Hard To Love
I tighten my hands until they crack
Bite my lips until they almost bleed
I must hold back this waterfall
So it will not drown you and me

Losing a scream inside my throat
I watch my words fall down
With every shake of your head
They don't even touch you now

And they never have

(Chorus)
It happens every time I try
To keep you from the edge
It happens every time I try
To lift you onto my ledge
But you would rather fall
Than look above you
And on the turning away
You make it hard to love you

You make it hard
You make it hard
To love you

I can never stop your storms
When they race across your lands
It's like I'm yelling in the wind
And you'll never understand

How a piece of my heart withers
With every negative thought
That kills your spirit inside
And then leaves it to rot

(Chorus)
Track Name: Viens ici mon amour
La fatigue pose ses mains sur toi
Et fait baisser tes yeux noisettes
Ton ciel est complètement couvert
Mais l'image est nette

(Refrain)
Viens ici mon amour
Je sais ce dont tu as besoin
Viens ici mon amour
On se cachera dans le coin
Viens mon amour
Viens mon amour

La vie pose ses poids sur toi
Devient de plomb dans tes chaussures
Elle vit dans ton coeur de frêle
De plus en plus devient trop dure

(Refrain) x3

La vie est lourde dans tes chaussures
Mais je la rendrai moins dure
Si tu viens ici mon amour

English translation:
Come Here My Love

Fatigue puts its hands on you
And lowers your hazel eyes
Your sky is completely cloudy
But the image is clear

Chorus:
Come here my love
I know what you need
Come here my love
We will hide in the corner
Come my love
Come my love

Life puts its weight on you
Turns to lead in your shoes
Life lives in your fragile heart
Becomes more and more difficult

(Chorus) x3

Life is heavy in your shoes
But I will make it less difficult
If you come here, my love
Track Name: Close Your Eyes
As we lie awake in the dark
The silence is broken with a sigh
That speaks a thousand words
I hold you as you start to cry

(Chorus)
Just close your eyes
And everything will be alright
Just close your eyes
And I will hold you through the night
Just close your eyes
Oh my love
Close your eyes

Let me love surround you
With a touch of my hand
I can't make it all go away
But I'll do what I can

'Cause I know your stress
Is so hard to forget
But tomorrow's a new day
That hasn't happened yet

Tomorrow's a new day
That hasn't happened yet

(Chorus)

'Cause I know your stress
Is so hard to forget
But tomorrow's a new day
That hasn't happened yet

Tomorrow's a new day
That hasn't happened yet

(Chorus)
Track Name: Fly Away
Falling into my dreamscape
I can see nothing but light
There's no way I can escape
As visions pass in the night

All those memories of the day
Weigh on my eyes and mind
But in this land, I can stray
And let it all unwind

(Chorus)
Let it fly away fly away fly away
Let it fly away fly away fly away
Fly away

(Fly away)

There's no sense of time here
Only sweet sensations like a kiss
There's not much of anything
Except the purest bliss

So let it go into the breeze
And just forget everything

(Fly away, fly away)

(Chorus) x2

Do do do
Do do do
Do do do
Fly away
Fly away
Track Name: Wild Blue
The day is ending soon
But I'm still going strong
Bouncing from cloud to cloud
High enough to reach the moon

You watch from the ground
Your arms across your chest
Always hoping that your love
Will make me come back down

(Chorus)
But nothing can stop me
From flying into the wild blue
No nothing can stop me
Not even your love
From flying into the wild blue
The wild wild wild
The wild blue

You knew right from the start
I'd always be in the sky
Always closer to the stars
Than to your heart

'Cause I am meant to be
With the air and space
It's not what you want
But it's better for me

(Chorus) x2

'Cause nothing can stop me
From flying into the wild blue
Nothing can stop me
Not even your love
From flying into the wild blue
The wild wild wild
The wild wild
The wild wild wild wild
The wild blue
Track Name: Rivers
Cutting through mountains
And bleeding its waters
Hiding in the sunshine
Of a green and lush forest

There are flooded banks
From a cruel and distant storm
And there are scarred rocks
There, in the rapids

Here in this solitude

(Chorus)
There are rivers you will never see
Behind these eyes, behind this smile
There are rivers you will never see
Even if you try there are too many miles
To ever see it all
'Cause there are rivers rivers rivers
That you will never see

And in this quiet chaos
The current rushes on
Bubbling in the moonlight
Under the howling wind

The world only sees
The calm and the glow
So no one else knows
The soul beneath the light

And the closer you are
The farther away you go

'Cause there are

(Chorus)

(Rivers you will never see
Behind these eyes, behind this smile
Rivers you will never see
Behind these eyes, behind this smile)

Rivers, that you, my dear
Will never see, see
Never see
Track Name: Take This Love
Take this love
From my open hands
My soul is thirsty
And I want your arms

Take this love
With its storms and sun
And bursts of gray
It's all I have to give

Take this love
For the rest of our days
I'll take yours too
And place it next to mine

Take this love
It's all I have to offer
But if you give it time
It will turn to gold

So take this love
Take this love
Take this, love....

So take this love
From my open hands
Our hearts are hungry
And we both need it
Need it
Need it

It's all I have to offer
But if you give it time
It will turn
It will turn to gold
Track Name: Island Girl
There's an ocean in your eyes
Where the waves rise
And cover the sand
The winds are whipping fast
How long will the storm last?
Here, hold my hand

(Chorus)
Don't listen to the wind
Whistling cold then hot
You think that you're an island, girl
But you're not
No you're not alone in this world
You're not an island, girl
Island, girl
Island, girl

The waves come and go
And I never know
What's on your mind
Til I hear the thunder
And you're pulled under
This is not the first time

(Chorus)

Black mountains and trees
The sand burning under your feet
I know you want to feel alone
But listen to me
Listen to me

(Chorus)

Island girl
Island girl
Oh no.....
Track Name: Out Of My Depth
You took me out of my depth
To the deep end of the ocean
Guided me with your words
To lose myself in the motions

I didn't want to put down my feet
Or listen to anything you said
But your eyes told me to follow
So I ignored the doubts in my head

You took my out of my depth
Until I couldn't see the shore
When all I felt was space
And heard was the ocean's roar

I didn't want to swim so far
What if there were sharks ahead?
But your eyes told me to follow
So I ignored the doubts in my head

You took my out of my depth
And slowly let go of my hand
Come now, swim to me
Pretend you're still on land

I almost screamed as you slipped
And my lungs filled with dread
But your eyes told me to follow
So I ignored the doubts in my head

I trembled as I parted the waves
And headed for your waiting arms
I breathed out all the fear
And I reached you, unharmed

And the ocean didn't seem so big
The water didn't seem so black
And that was only seaweed
Stuck to my naked back

You took me out of my depth
To the deep end of the ocean
Guided me with your love
As I finally lost myself
As I finally lost myself
In the motions
