Track Name: Colour and Detail
LYRICS

I saw a garden in black and white and you said “what’s the point?”
But I’d sketch it out if you use your paints.
Add your colour to the details; drawing out what we’re going to make.
But my blue isn’t your blue, it’s a tiny ocean from me to you.
And your green isn’t my pride but our red is the fact of life.
Like parents and their children, a generation is no separation,
You got to cut it out. Cut it out and put the pieces in a frame.

Then I dreamt that I was new and I grew up outside the lines.

You gotta draw yourself from different views, showing every side of you.
So when they’re crying out, don’t you let ‘em drown.
But your world isn’t like mine; you’ve got a lot more new, free designs.
Don’t you cut them out or if you cut them out, put that picture in a frame!
I saw a garden in black and white and you said “what’s the point?”
But I’d sketch it out if you use your paints.
Add your colour to the details; drawing out what we’re going to make.

Then I dreamt that I was new and I grew up outside the lines.
Yes I dreamt that we were new, let’s not stay inside the lines!
Track Name: Hard Love
LYRICS

I’m so hungry for connection
But I keep feeding my addiction
All these objects no affection
Please, enough is enough.

I said give me hard love.

I go stumbling through the darkness
Where I found this dusty chair
And that’s where I think I’ll stay
For all these decades to come.

I said give me hard love.

I go shaking with the devil
Where I make all kinds of trouble
I was sifting through the rubble
When I saw who I was.

I said give me hard love.

Lets go get every kind of dirty
And fly around in circles
Ain’t that just what this world is?
God now don’t that seem rough?

I said give me hard love.
Give me hard love.


Lyrics written by Luke Nares.
Track Name: Youth
LYRICS

I’ve been living out of shoebox cities
I won’t mind the space when I’m six feet down.
I’ve been jumping country to county,
Haven’t met myself, how can I know your love?
Still haven’t met myself, how can I know your love?
Still haven’t met myself, how can I know you?

I want to lay my head in my mamma’s arms
Count the days, explain how life has just begun.
You are my sunshine baby.
I’m scared that somehow, I’ll somehow let you down.
I’m scared that somehow, I’ll somehow let you down.
Scare that somehow, I’ll somehow let you.

Youth is wasted on the young.
Youth, what have we become?
Youth is wasted on the young.
Youth, I still hear those songs we’d sung.

You know what they say about a photo don’t you?
It could steal your soul and not leave much else.
I haven’t checked in on my people lately.
I think mine know me more than I know myself.
I think mine know me more than I know myself.
I think mine know me more than I know my -

Youth is wasted on the young.
Youth, what have we become?
Youth is wasted on the young.
Youth, I still hear those songs we’d sung.

Sure they’re paper stars but they’re still ours –
We are the cardboard kings of our own worlds.
And my ghost’s been found just as good as new
And my ghost’s been lost but still shining through.
If it’s a sleeping race by now I’d won it all
But I fell into my place where I still try to how.
Winter’s come around but before we’re gone,
Separate into our houses how bout just one more song?

While we’re young, until we’re gone
How about just one more song?
