Track Name: Bright Skies
I see you leavin' on the train
It falls off the horizon going back to where you came
And i hope,
Hope to see you soon
'Cause the skies' a little brighter
When i'm close to you

The whistle blows, the engine starts
Each car is gaining speed
The tracks are shakin' like my hands
When i drink to much caffine
But i hope,
Hope to see you soon
'Cause the skies a little brighter
When i'm close to you
'Cause the skies a little brighter
When i'm close to you

(solo)

I ride my bike home in the rain
The droplets seem to permeate my solitary brain
But i hope,
Hope to see you soon
'Cause the skies a little brighter
When i'm close to you
'Cause the skies a little brighter
When i'm close to you

When i'm close to you
The sky is brighter
When i'm close to you
The sky is bright

And if it takes
All my life
Or two
I will wait for you
Track Name: Little Birds
Little birds they were a flyin'
Above my head like fireworks
Their colours, falling straight on me
Their clicks were tickin' quicker
as chicks were hatchin' in their
leafy nuseries

oh oh

Sing little bird
Sing to me
Way up high in your Sycamore tree
Sing little bird
Sing to me
Show me what it means to be free

Look whats up around you
Remember to hold onto
The things that pass you by
Little birds dont live forever
So stop tryin' to be clever
Love will set you free

Sing little bird
Sing to me
Way up high in your Sycamore tree
Sing little bird
Sing to me
Show me what it means to be free

Sing, Little bird
Won't you sing
Sing to me
Oh oh sing
Little bird
Track Name: Father
Father lyrics

I know a man stronger
Than warrior of old
He fights off the demons
That torment my soul
He picks me up when
I fall to my knees
And he carries me over
These troubled seas

A man so courageous
As he holds his tounge
Where other men let go,
And let their lips run
He teaches me patience
To listen and wait
Cause he's been through the valley
And he's come out again

A father who knows me
A father who cares for me
A father who know who i am and reminds me

A man who's heart
Knows no bounds
As deep as the ocean
In kindness i'd drown
Washed onto the shores of
His mercy and then
He'd lift me back up to
His arms agin

A father who knows me
A father who cares for me
A father who hopes, when hopes' gone and left me

My father loves me
My father cares for me
My father knows who i am and reminds me

My fathers' good
My fathers' kind
My father is who i want to be like
Track Name: Wood and Stone
You were right all along
I miss your loving arms
I was such a fool to stray
I'll never run away

And i know i'm not alone x2

For years i've called to wood and stone
without reply
I'd rather give my heart to one
Who breathes joy and life

And i know i'm not alone x2
Track Name: I Lie Awake
She arrived on the night of my birthday
Start of the month
Her eyes to the skies, searched for hope in the cloud
I know the look

Shaking hands move like snakes in the sand
Back and forth
Coins in the machine rattle 'round endlessly
And on it goes

I lie awake at night
Thinking of you
I lie awake most everynight
Afraid to dream of you

Pendulum swings hold our hearts by a string
To and fro
I reach in my mind to remember the times
So long ago

I lie awake at night
Thinking of you
I lie awake most everynight
Afraid to dream of you
