Track Name: Sirens ft. John Smith
Oh one day we will both be fine,
And I'll sing of the years that made up this time,
And as the autumn passes by
I will leave the sea in sounder mind.

I recall those hopeless nights,
When I dreamed of blue sails passing by,
We'll have time again for fear
Because you were all I had my dear.


Oh I loved you,
Oh I loved you,
And we must be sinking far too deep
For these ropes of theirs to ever reach.


I won't care if you speak to her
About all those things we murmured,
You may give her time, but give me
The tide where we found our demise.


Oh I loved you,
Oh I loved you,
But the voices fade like siren calls,
And I'm left with only words and walls.

Oh I loved you,
Oh I loved you,
But the voices fade like siren calls,
And I'm left with only words and only walls.
Track Name: Setting North
As the autumn catches the streets,
I feel a sadness like the sea.
I can't explain it,
Can't explain it.

We'd run through rivers by the dam,
All hopeful heads and hand in hand,
Gilded silver
Dressed in lavender.

But I have slept,
I have kept my promises.
I have wept,
I have let my lover go.

But do I want my home,
And all I really know?
You pick up the phone,
Aren't we alone?

I took the stillness of the night,
And kept it here and set it to rights,
I belong here,
I belong here.

I belong here,
I belong here.
Track Name: Fathoms Deep
It's never been clearer, my dear,
You ceased to make me smile.
And everything is unclear,
It has been for a while.

You know I never wanted this,
You know I never wanted this.

And we've hit deep water now, my dear,
Depths beyond our ken.
The storm has passed,
Oh, how clear everything was back then.

Tell him I never wanted this,
Tell him I never wanted this.

Tell him I never wanted this,
Tell him I never wanted this.
Track Name: Far
Sitting, rain on windows rolling,
Waiting to forget,
Darkened rooms and seaside views,
And words we never said.

And it's in your eyes,
Your perfect symmetry,
And you have gold in you.

But you're too much too soon,
And so far you're so far away,
And every day I lose you,
You're so far, you're so far.

And I won't count all your regrets,
And mine are all forgot.
Keep me in your memory,
It's really no one's fault.

But this love-stained heart I offer you
Is not enough to see us through.

'Cause you're too much too soon
And so far you're so far away
And every day I lose you
You're so far, you're so far.

'Cause you're too much too soon
And so far you're so far away
And every day I lose you
Not too fast, not too fast.
