Track Name: Intro
And the morning we wrote began,
I will never grow old again,
And the morning we wrote began,
I will never grow old again.
Track Name: Long We Stood
All the winter sighed
All the trees undressed
Rambling though the road alone
Only animals were left

Before the city stood
A sealed road and a gate
But it’s been dying in the light
I think we sealed it’s fate

And how long we stood
With nowhere to go
Lost rambling stones
with no childhood home
No childhood home

I can’t rebuild this wood
And I don’t wana try
I’m forever wading through the ash
Did you hear my sigh?

Then the path got split
And we can't take both
so if you follow in my steps
We'll take the light trodden road

I’ll watch from afar as it unfolds
Who will we love when we grow old
Track Name: Viking Burial
Feel my pulse racing around your body
Feel nights clockworks starting to slow
And we stay up, late now, waiting for the storm to be over
With a Glass in hand and waiting for god

Oh wont you Bury me at sea,
And I'll sleep where the world can't reach,
Drift out where no-one sees me go.

Feel my shadow, clinging on your footprints
Feel the coldest air biting on your neck
Mornings frozen, the world’s grown much older tonight
A torch in hand and looking for God

Oh wont you Bury me at sea,
And I'll sleep where the world can't reach,
Drift out where no-one sees me go.

These days I wait for my fate
But I know how it feels to be awake
Track Name: Broken Horses
This old horse broke down,
It had nothing left,
And don’t I know how it felt
And you can’t carry me home,
You ain’t got the legs
I’ll watch the ground beneath you wilt

This old love grows red
I don’t understand
Why i’m burning through your lens
Watched the crows fly by
So beautiful
Wish that I could fly like them
Track Name: Cureless Love
Ours a cureless love, and yours the atoms I prefer
Old and weather worn, but I’m still dreaming of the woods

But I’m sure I will remain
As a creature of the night
with your vows run in my veins
On a the night you set alight

Now I’m camped out here, but someday I will rise and go
Time now it widowed me, but you’re still see me home

But I’m sure I will remain
As a creature of the night
with your vows run in my veins
On a the night you set alight
Track Name: Wooden Castles
We are just a crazy burnt out constellation,
What a life we had when the rain all turned to gold,
Red Red top misty mountain
Hide, hide me in your arms

Oh we’ll burnt those wooden castles down,
Run and our bodies may never be found
Oh we’ll burnt those wooden castles down,
Hide and our bone may never be found

We are just the devil breaking at temptation
I have found a place where no-one knows our name
Gold, Gold winter forest
Hide, Hide me unknown

And our bones are aching
And our hands are tied
Track Name: All is Grace
Wooden castles and forts made of sand, and all that lies between
Englands mine, I have breached its walls, with hands you can’t see

Rise up my shipwrecked love oh never more I’ve I swoon
I found my voice in her sweet melodies, in a dark piano tune.

And now all's left is grace
And now all's left is grace
And now all's left is grace
And now all's left is grace
Track Name: A Restraint
Curse this day, it’s too heavy to move,
and you swallowed me up under your sky.
Though I seem so calm, all this rage has grown
Now it wont be long till I’m on fire

So leave me be now
So leave me be now
I am gone
I am gone far away

Curse the sky, now there’s nowhere to hide,
I’ve got no-one left here in my defence
And today I’ll feel, a restraint so real
Descend and shatter above
Track Name: In the Summer
Oh in the summer when you go when you go
You know I’m still waiting, in the winter you stole.

Awoken by thunder in the storms that you bring
Was as graceful as the lightning, that ignites my skin

And Though our fiercest storm I’m calling your name
Will you doubt my love when It’s all that remains

Oh in the summer when you go when you go
I follow your fires but they lead me from home

Take me to another, where we live in no haste
You know I’ll be waiting when you rise and awake
Track Name: Restless Sounds
Oh restless sounds, settle down, It’s time to leave
Friends follow me, our time of need, descends

Breathe in no sigh, for this our time, to show heart
Before my children grow, sinicle and old, we must reign

We thought we were safe, in our state, we evolved
And set down our arms, down our guard, to the king

escape from the nest, a world's unrest, yet to see.
We’ll grow old so fast, I'll make this last, I promise this
Track Name: Step Lightly
Boldest that you vow
and you step lightly now
I know now, you are nobodies child
Belongs to no-one found

Old love old love,
Sings no more

Coldest love lies
In your travelers eyes
You know I've never flown before
But all my clothes you tore

Old love old love,
Sings no more

The oldest drum sings
And our forms ran wild
But now you, never speak of that day
Your mind flown far away

Old love old love,
Sings no more
Track Name: Final Waltz
Strap me tight to dawns flight
that pulled me up to the stars
Where air is thin I found my home
in all you do tonight

Will you hit the water with me?
Will you hit the water with me?
Will you hit the water with me?
Will you hit the water with me?
