Isle of Yew 03:38
I feel like I've been living alone I guess I must be doing it wrong Ooh, I, I think about it Ooh, I, I dream about it I never wanna be alone again I love you and I hope you'll come through I hope you will come through You don't have to get so down If you look, you'll see I'm still around Ooh, I, I'm here for you Ooh, I will never leave you You don't have to get so down I love you and I know you'll pull through I know you will pull through You don't have to get so down
2.
I, I've never seen the moon so bright All my life never noticed the moments, holy and god sent I, until now I've never tried All my life I've never noticed the timing, oh where have I been All along and it's all been there Trying to make me more aware But I was in the heat like a fool Much too busy keeping cool, but That's when I met you and my life changed I have opened my eyes, now I see things If you find it hold it tight Give it water and sunlight If you keep the love unkempt You'll turn around and nothing's left All along and it's all been there Trying to make me more aware But I was in the heat like a fool Much too busy keeping cool, but That's when I met you and my life changed I have opened my eyes, now I see things Pick up the pieces Those little pieces Pick up the pieces Those pretty pieces That's when I met you and my life changed I have opened my eyes, now my heart sings
3.
I feel as though we owe the world and life in its entirety A well thought-out and warm, heartfelt, genuine apology Ooh, I love the way that you love me I'd love to teach the world to sing and syncopate in harmony I'd love to teach the world to live the way it sings in fantasy Ooh, I love the way that you love me This task is oh so beyond me I'd love to build the world a home and furnish it with empathy Grow apple trees and honeybees, and turn the soil and plant the seed Ooh, I love the way that you love me Please, oh please listen to my plea I can't live my life afraid Fill the cup up with cold rain Or I can change Or I can learn to love again This task is oh so beyond me Please, oh please listen to my pleas
4.
Now it seems You can't ask for more than what you're sure you're really ready to offer So what's your offer And though it seems You think you know - you don't - you thought you did, but now you're not sure No one's ever really sure So now it seems It's up to you to make your dreams come true and be home in time for dinner So what's for dinner But then you'll see There's no time to eat so get off your seat and go make me a winner Everyone's a winner And when you want it more than anything Then fate will bring you all that once seemed lost And when you see it more in every dream Then God will sing, sing a pretty song Oh, come on I feel it slipping from my hands I'm wasting time I'm making plans Oh please, believe in me I fall in love with all I see I see you now and I believe Oh I, I believe in you And when you want it more than anything Then fate will bring you all that once seemed lost And when you see it more in every dream Then God will sing, sing a pretty song

You came and lit up my heart and then you disappeared I was then afraid of the dark and the footsteps that I'd hear I need, yeah, I need to know You're still around and I'm not alone I need, I need to know You haven't left and I'm not alone Oh no, maybe, I've lost my mind Were we crazy to think we could try Is it time Oh I can feel it's time You said that there would be changes and we should lend a hand Universal ages and stages, supplied for what we demand I need, yeah, I need to know Is it for real or some kind of joke I need, I need to know Is there a glimpse, a fragment of hope Oh no, maybe, we've lost our minds Were we crazy to think we could try Were we crazy Or is this the beginning Now are the old days over
7.
I must have died a hundred times and I'm still breathing Each chance to get things right keeps my heart beating Your fatalistic thoughts inspire despite the impending If means can overwhelm us more than just the ending My heart is getting tired, the circles spinning All the things that we've started are never ending Your love will make the world go round Our love will make the world go round It's time that I clean up my act and start the healing I don't see how it could last without that feeling I guess it's true though, we do lack that real devotion But we'll do what we can with these emotions My heart is getting tired, the circles spinning All the things that we've started are never ending My heart is getting tired, the circles spinning All the things that we've started are never ending But I will try, oh, I will try Your love will make the world go round Our love will make the world go round

I'm Easy 04:09
As true as blood is in our veins Running older for the gain In the belief of something Chasing lines, dividing times Will make us colder Exacting rhymes to the stiffness In my shoulder We left a space for after while The time before contains miles and miles Of red tape, keeping it together Where motion eased on the reflection on the eye Is where the molecules of stars are born So we can die Find someone who’s easy to love… I’m easy. A monumental momentary Lapse of emotion only carries us To darker places Our mode of travel will be Breaking air and the sea We’re holding on to all the loving That we’re never letting grow Buried under rocks and places That we’d never know And it’s only in the being that we’ll ever understand The bodies exit through the heart And through the broken man Find someone with an easy love Find someone who’s easy to love… I’m easy.
9.
In search of means to occupy my mind I'm already living for my dog and my cellar door Escape through hatches in a baseball cap To places where we had a laugh And all we want is to remember that Free on the air Recollections get the best of me Picturesque and playful then Sublime now to a bitter end Free on the air
10.
You're Alive 04:12
Now I know why I can't Explain how I feel that What I believe to be real Is all I'll ever have So let the sunshine come out and make it better Don't ask yourself why the water is not wetter And you know you've been right all along You're not alone, you're not alone, you're alive Now I know why I can't Explain how I feel that What it wants to conceal Is what I'll never have So let the sunshine come out and make it better Don't ask yourself why the water is not wetter And you know you've been right all along You're not alone, you're not alone, you're alive Oh! No! So let the sunshine come out and make it better Don't ask yourself why the water is not wetter And you know you've been right all along You're not alone, you're not alone, you're alive You're so beautiful
11.
Now that it's over, I'm all alone Now that it's over, I'm on my own I know I am nothing and it seems all is lost I've got more than ever, I've found love
