Track Name: The Bell
Time is lost
Take my hand
My heart is open now forgiving
There's no pain
There's no shame
Life is open for the willing

Lay
Lay

In the heart of the land
There's a loud bell keeps on ringing
Leaves no time
Leaves no space
And it drowns out all the singing

Lay
Lay

Can you call
Can you come
Can you set my senses ringing
Can you drown out the pain
Stop that ceaseless bell from ringing?

And lay down
Lay down

Time is lost
Time is lost
Time is lost
Time is lost
Track Name: Fully Formed
Fully formed are you fully formed
Or weak
Fully formed are you fully formed
Or asleep


And part of all of this is you’re young
Part of all of this you’re a letter that has just begun


Fully formed are you fully formed
Or wise
Fully formed are you fully formed
Or weary

Even when it’s cold you can see
The kind of beauty that will
Keep you coming home to me


Fully formed are you fully formed
Or wise
Fully formed are you fully formed
Or weary

Part of all of this is you’re young
Part of all of this is you’re a letter that has just begun
Track Name: Willow
There was a time when we just knew
Through the willow leaves we flew
When we ran home to beat the sun
The whole town saw us as one
And we were

You were bright in armour too
All the country girls they knew
That you were running on a dream
There were songs you'd never sing
Just like me

Falling
Winter
Willow
Falling

Now you're all coloured in in blue
And all my words just fall straight through
So why don't you just chase with me
A dandilion in the breeze
And remember

Colour
Lover
Colour
Lover

Falling
Winter
Willow
Falling

Lover
Colour
Lover

Lover
Track Name: Empty Rooms
Empty Rooms
Think someone else is here

And from the middle of her pain
I can find no coming rain

Did she come for me
To take it out on me

Clothes strewn everywhere
Seems like they're perfectly there

Did she come out for me
Or did I come too soon

Shall I scream at her
Take an open stare or just, just leave

Oh oh oh oh

Empty rooms
See her there

Don't throw out on me
Things I won't believe
Don't invest in me
Things I will never be
Don't throw out on me
Things I won't believe
Don't invent in me things you will never be

Just leave your empty room
