Track Name: Dead Affection
Join me closer, I don’t care about ‘em
It could be a sweet world
If you could stop your looking, say
(Why are you still afraid)
But I’ve been trying so hard

Just trying to get into your circle
Open my head and edge your chest open
(Is that a heart)
It’s my way in
Am I being too emotional

You told me that things’ll be fine
All it’s gonna take is a little bit of time, well hey
(Look at the clock)
It’s been a little while now

All I wanted was a strong kinda love
But it fell through when push came to shove, yeah
(Why can’t you do this for me)

That’s what I get
For believing
(That’s what I get for believing that it ain’t true)
Oh that’s what I get
For believing in you

It’s just a matter of time
For you and I
To realize, we got nothing left to hold together now
It’s just a matter of time
Gotta look out for mine
Sometimes that means leaving it all behind

You keep me young babe, cryingIt’s what we had
It’s what I’m needing
(What do you do when a love affair is over)
Oh that's what we had
It’s up and leaving
on my shoulder
Even when I was young, wished that I was older
(Might wanna watch the skies)
Yeah if you’re looking for a full moon

I can’t help with your vain resurrection
You can’t breathe life into my dead affection
(Wish that I could bring it back)
Oh, oh

I used to wish on a cosmic star
Hoping I could sleep if I landed where you are now
(You’re never in my dreams)
Yeah I wanted it all better but

Distance don’t make the heart grow fonder
When we meet up, we’re still left to wonder
(When’s this gonna end
Kissing like it’s alright, playing pretend)

It’s just a matter of time
For you and I
To realize, we got nothing left to hold together now
It’s just a matter of time
Gotta look out for mine
Sometimes that means leaving it all behind
Track Name: Reverie
Am I in my bed,
Or someone else’s sheets instead?
What will I regret?
Did I grow old inside my head
Because of all the things I said?

This scene’ll pass
The sunlight driving in too fast
A glow that seems to last
Blocks your face it’s overcast
These pastel shades soon turn to ash
All I remember is a flash

It’s just late night activity
Closed-eyelid creativity
Visions that mean nothing
But they’re everything to me

Pretty sensible it seems
A tourist in captivity
Visions that mean nothing
But they’re everything,
Everything to me

Have I been here before?
The layout of the second floor
Viewing deja decor, architecture I adore
Visit once more at 24

The horizon’s high
Reclined skyline
From another time
It still floods colours in my mind
Here the strangest things collide
Here the strangest things’ll shine

It’s just late night activity
Closed-eyelid creativity
Visions that mean nothing
But they’re everything to me

Pretty sensible it seems
A tourist in captivity
Visions that mean nothing
But they’re everything,
Everything to me
Track Name: Summer Daze
I wait through the cold
Just to get a hint, get a glimpse
That winter hurt so bad without your kiss yeah, and

I can’t help these old
Memories, you and me
I’m burning with the hope I should dismiss
Yeah yeah

I’ve done my time, I’m in my prime
And I want you
The seasons change now let’s exchange
A moment of truth
Oh I was young and you were shy
But now under these bright skies
I’ve got a fantasy we should try

This is the summer scene
Sweatin' all soaked in gasoline and
These are the summer days
Watching you work hard from the shade yeah
This is the summer sun
Glowing hot halos you’re the one hey
These are the summer ways
C’mon baby let’s go back to your place

Oh what can I do
My head is now in the clouds
Oh when I see your face in every crowd

I can’t help my mind
My imagination runs wild
You got a full grown woman, acting like a child
Yeah, yeah

Your spell it turns and now i’ve learned
That I want you
You turn a realist to optimist
That’s how you do
Oh I am sweet and you are fine
You got a smile that matches mine
When you laugh it’s magic in your eyes

This is the summer scene
Sweatin' all soaked in gasoline and
These are the summer days
Watching you work hard from the shade yeah
This is the summer sun
Glowing hot halos you’re the one hey
These are the summer ways
C’mon baby let’s go back to your place

C’mon baby let’s go back
(HEY HEY)
Leave behind this world regime
(HEY HEY)
Falling in love with a simple daydream
(HEY HEY)
You got something I’ve never seen
Like an ode to youth and purity
Or loss of what that used to mean
Bring me back to a warmer breeze
Come on show me what it means to be free

This is the summer scene
Sweatin' all soaked in gasoline and
These are the summer days
Watching you work hard from the shade yeah
This is the summer sun
Glowing hot halos you’re the one
Oh, oh
C’mon baby let’s go back to your place
Track Name: Caffeine ft. JonoJosh
I’m on the sidelines again
Trying to fit my heart into my head
Everyone that holds me is a lover, but they’re not a friend
Before you I never knew the difference

Still in hiding
I’m in love with my imaginary man
In my mind tithing
To the memories he left to me
They slip through my fingers like grains of sand
A kind of apparition haunting me and
He never even held my hand

If you’re trying to forget me
You got too much time on your hands
In your late night frenzy
Don’t you wanna see me again
These days I don’t know if my heart is pumping absence of your love and caffeine
Looking for new love is sorting unfamiliar faces like a machine

I’m in the background again
(Background again)
Dodging in between the reverb
Of her spacious head
Every time I reminisce, I have to reprimand
I know can’t see her here but, I never did see the end

I hear her voice in the black
And I’m in the love with an echo of the past
I turn back
To face a subtle breeze, musing tease
I won’t even care about it think about it for today, yeah
(Oh, oh)
But tonight I’ll be wondering how to
Get back what I never had

If you’re trying to forget me
You got too much time on your hands
In your late night frenzy
Don’t you wanna see me again
These days my heart ain’t pumping all the numbing late nights, alcohol and caffeine
Trying to keep old love is playing scenes rewind, repeat, just like a machine

Yeah, yeah yeah yeah

If you’re trying to forget me
You got too much time on your hands
(Too much time right on your hands, yeah)
In your late night frenzy
Don’t you wanna see me again
(Dontchya, don’t you wanna see me again)
These days my heart ain’t pumping all the numbing late nights, alcohol and caffeine
Trying to keep old love is playing scenes rewind, repeat, just like a machine
Track Name: Late Night
Don't bring me home
It's been a long night
And i'm not ready to face the sheets, yeah

Don't bring me home
I only came out
On the chance that we would meet, and

I'm not expecting anything
'Tween our eyes
Except empty words if only we tried
Still hiding the truth
Our words how they soothe
Hoping this is endless
Do everything but still you

Don't bring me home
Don’t, don’t bring me home baby
Don't bring me home
Won't you won't you bring me home yeah
Still feel alone
Bet you're still feeling alone, baby
Don't bring me home
Won’t you, won’t you bring me home yeah

Don't say goodbye
It's getting real late
To stop these words and rise

Don't say goodbye
Leave your coat
And try me on for size

I'm not expecting anything
'Tween our eyes
Except empty words if only we tried
Still hiding the truth
Our words how they soothe
Hoping this is endless
Do anything but baby just

Don't bring me home
Don’t, don’t bring me home baby
Don't bring me home
Won't you won't you bring me home yeah
Still feel alone
Bet you're still feeling alone, baby
Don't bring me home
Won’t you, won’t you bring me home yeah

And I still think about you in the black, eyeing cracks in the door
Hoping for your
Footsteps to come walking in
Show me the original sin,
I’ll show you how to begin, and

I still think about you in the black, eyeing cracks in the door
Hoping for your footsteps
To come walking in
Show me the original sin,
I’ll tell you how to begin

Think about you
