Silly Love 03:23
What makes the soul connect to you, I only know it’s what I do We’re born apart, we fall in love, Its all untold, but I am sold This silly love This silly love This silly love I won’t look back if you come to, Just hold the hand I give to you, This silly love This silly love This silly love I’m the ball, that pulls the chain If I were you, I’d run away Hoh hoh Oh, deep the chord you struck! Oh, it’s ringing in my heart! Don’t wake me if I’m dreaming… Oh oh oh oh Somehow the sky, is so damn blue I don’t know why it must be you! It won’t be long, ‘fore my heart sings It’s tragic song, and all it brings This silly love This silly love This silly love This silly love This silly love This silly love This silly love Oh oh oh love…

Better 03:38
Up again with the sun Can’t sleep with you gone It’s darker now with the winter’s come And the songs won’t sing And if they did they only bring You back to everything And the conversation hurts It’s not getting better And the truth is we have purged The time we had together And there’s nothing left to say You put it all in a letter Things are gonna spin Before they get better I don’t want to love you anymore But I think that I’m a fool for it all I can’t see the way, and I can’t hear what you say I only know the feeling’s gone away And the conversation hurts It’s not getting better And the truth is we have purged The time we had together And there’s nothing left to say You put it all in a letter Things are gonna spin Before they get better Ooh Ooh oh oh And the conversations hurt It’s not getting better And the truth is we have purged The time we had together And there’s nothing left to say You put it all in a letter Things are gonna spin Before they get better

I see a tree, broken Beauty broken A tree made of wood, made of wood This must be this can be only Brokenwood I see a view, a quarter acre view In this quarter view acre view A house made for us Feel’s like home I love it like crazy, let’s settle down Love it like crazy, let’s settle down let’s settle down let’s settle down If you could, you really should move to Brokenwood Brokenwood I see a view broken Beauty broken A view made of dreams, burning wood This must be, it can only be Brokenwood I feel so free, swinging in the tree This burning broken tree By the house made for us, Feels like home I love it like crazy, let’s settle down I love it like crazy, let’s settle down let’s settle down let’s settle down If you could, you really should move to Brokenwood Brokenwood, Brokenwood You never should move to (Brokenwood) You never should move to (Brokenwood)

This is my vanishing point, I leave you to your devices I’m not prepared to put myself through, Witnessing the destruction of you There is a grace to coming clean There is a world inside unseen I was a part of your world, You made it easy to be I would have danced the nights away with you If you had been more honest with me There is a grace to coming clean There is a world inside unseen I really hope, it’s hallelujah I want you to know, there’s beauty to ya.. If life is but a dream don’t let it fool ya.. I really hope, it’s hallelujah for you For you, for you There is a grace to coming clean There is a world inside unseen I really hope, it’s hallelujah I want you to know, there’s beauty to ya.. If life is but a dream don’t let it fool ya.. I really hope, it’s hallelujah for you For you, for you

Dreamer 05:10
I never knew beauty, To be so severe Where loss is a duty And love’s only yours to revere Cos you never believed it And you never could When you guard your secret It’s understood Hold on to my love Hold on to it love Cos it’s real and it’s still alight The fire’s burn me alive And you you never believed it And you you never could When you guard your secret It’s understood And you’re just like the sea When it’s calm you sing to me And I sail to your heart Where the storm pulls love apart And I’m just one more soul who is left on your shores Ooh You are the dreamer I am a dream But you withdraw The closer you get to me Cos you, you never believed it And you, never could When you guard your secret It’s understood And you’re just like the sea When it’s calm you sing to me And I sail to your heart Where the storm pulls love apart And I’m just one more soul who is wrecked on your shores Ooh, ooh Ooh, ooh And you’re just like the sea When it’s calm you sing to me And I sail to your heart Where the storm pulls love apart And I’m just one more soul who is wrecked on your shores Ooh, ooh Ooh, ooh
