Track Name: sequences
Verse 1

We don't need another way, don't look outside honey, sequences we've long since found
You've got the right to be drawn in and to choose to divide, as life isn't full ’til its tried

Chorus
We're always moving in the same lines then starting over again
If you could change it for a moment would you?

Verse 2

Crowded, an array of sparks, my tired mind slows with sequences that come and go
This is the time to be gone and to learn to survive, as past is the time to revive

Chorus 2

'Cos we're still running in the same lines just getting older
If I could change it in a moment I would

Verse 3

Elements that form the day from light to dark as a full rotation makes its way
The order runs like a course that converges to end, so choose to evolve or pretend

Bridge

Under the roofs of a thousand houses, sequences create our day
In the cool, cool breeze of the night we'll find it, as the full of the moon illuminates...

End Chorus

Under the roofs of a thousand houses, sequences create our day
In the cool cool breeze of the night we'll find it, as the full of the moon illuminates...
(If we feel something, we could spend some time here as things move along
If we feel something in this day)
Track Name: feels like home
Alone, so alone in my mind is the only soul
Its a sign that maybe I should get on the road
I've never been the one that you need, so darling I'm done
I've given you my halcyon days

I was only looking back (x6)

All you ever do is side with somebody else
its gonna wear you thin in time
'cause you're reading to much into life
the meaning you take is far too literal
its gonna wear you thin in time

Cause you were brought up to tell it like it is
another indecision of momentary bliss (x2)

sooner or later we're drawn where the east wind blows
cause it feels like home (x2)

I was only looking back (x6)
Cause you were brought up to tell it like it is
another indecision of momentary bliss (x2)
Track Name: june
Wander the hills in the air of June,
Places that only we know,
Set for the woods in the afternoon,
You lead with followers in tow

There is a hole in the shore headland,
Where all the warriors go,
Making their way through the cold red sand,
To gaze on the folly below

If you decide, don't even ask the question, lead and I will follow
For it goes, in time, that we'll grow ever sadder but you were never so low.

Climb on the arch 'neath the fallen home,
down to the colliers pier
Dive in the blue-green salty foam,
and bathe in the headland's tears,

Paring the leaves of the evergreens, we swore we'd never to war
But now there's a hole in the shore headland
Where all the warriors go.

If you decide, don't even ask the question, lead and I will follow
For it goes, in time, that we'll grow ever sadder but you were never so low.
