Borderline 03:13
What must I do? To win the fair alliance with you? Why don't you shred my soul? 'Cos our love is so weak and old Who are the lost ones walking with me? Who are the wounded all I can see? Oh, Borderline in the sea. Oh, cross the line here with me. Oh, Borderline. I caught a thought for you, it was melting iron, black and blue You threw the stone so far, it was rippling in the river afar The silhouette has faded, there's nothing to see The boat's have gone, abated, there's nothing to see but fear and coast The shore's only filled with lonely ghosts.
2.
When the stars they go, when the night sky fades you know When the stain it goes, when the fog lifts you know Hold on, the sun's gone, it's dark in here Hold on, the sun's gone, its' dark in here Hoping that I might see you again And all I want and all I need is your soul The Breaking Point, the falling arc of your love The frozen discussion it grates the soul The violence it kills my heart I will find you where ever you are
3.
The dust I see on my window, the moths that stick to the walls The fire keeps burning, the embers that spread like diamonds Please Don't Call My Name 'cos I won't answer, these city walls lock me out, lock me out. The pauper who keeps all his pennies, will one day become his own enemy, The crystal ball keeps breaking, unfiltered and senseless like war. If I could tell you your future, I would do but I'd be afraid.
4.
Stowaway 02:32
Turn me away, I don't mind 'cos I've had my day, and you too Follow in my footsteps in the dirty path that I see before me. You tell me I'm being abused, You tell me I'm being used But I don't care what they say to you 'cos I'm in my hole all day I'm a Stowaway Take me away, I don't mind 'cos I'm here to stay, a Stowaway I don't even know where I'm going to I'm free like the wind that blows And you may find I'm watching above And you may find I'm guilty of the crime.
5.
Lighthouse 02:12
In the silent slumber where time is thunder Our troubles melt into rain The silent watchman, so broken-hearted, he slips away in sheer pain You're my Lighthouse, though I can't expect you to light up my only way home, You're my Lighthouse, though I can't accept that you'll light up my only way home In the streets of London, the tide is rising, I'll be there one day with you I fled to Cromer to see my owner, our fears they turn into gold
6.
Eliza 03:17
The stonelight in my heart Our souls so apart A diamond in the sky, ready to reprise Oh Eliza in my heart, Oh Eliza our souls apart Let's pretend it'll go away, all the fear and the pain A filter in my sight Oh I know I've lied So delicate in tone, always on the 'phone. Hoping that you might be rested 'til dawn Delicate milk in your eyes and your soul.
7.
Los Feliz 03:40
You could be lost in Los Feliz You could be hot in Hollywood You could be drinking in the Sunset Strip You could be high in Bel Air You could be smoking in the chair, in the hotel where travellers go. I wasn't where I said I'd be, you wouldn't know, there's more to LA than Hollywood. You saw the sign and drove towards the ocean, I wasn't there, on my way to Silverlake Careers don't come out of thin air You thought you were ugly so you had some surgery You had gone, your soul had died. I thought you had But it wasn't to be
8.
Reflection 05:08
I could call myself up, I could bring myself down You could be where you are Inside this hell I hear a bell So I look up the past It burns like a stone There's no point crying when you're all alone You could be a good writer You could be a good soul But nobody loves you, you're too old I could be there inside a page To witness the toxic, all the rage I could be with you now, I could be there Apologies come to those who wait But I don't owe anything to you You held your cards and you're playing them now
