Track Name: Not Gonna Lie (feat. Rachel Fraser)
Wanted to call wanted to say
So many things but I got all nervous
So then I did what I always do
Convinced myself it wasn't worth it
Now every time I run into you
You look confused coz I couldn't say it
That's not fair not on you
So I'm not gonna lie to you

I'm not gonna lie to you no more
I'll tell you the truth
I'm not gonna lie to you

This is a test I feel it best
When my head is full and I can clear it
I do recall even the small things
When we're walking can't forget it
Let it go I sing that song
I need it now I want to move on
Clear the air space to share
No I'm not gonna lie to you

I'm not gonna lie to you no more
I'll tell you the truth
I'm not gonna lie to you

I'm gonna tell you the truth
Track Name: Modern Marvel (feat. Esther Stephens)
I am up and getting drunk
tonight your love was tantric
You're asleep, am I too old
for this to be romantic

When you reach for my body I want to leave
But I can't seem to do so quietly

Oh my modern marvel
Am I pretty, pretty, pretty without your love
Oh my modern marvel
Something is always better than nothing

What a piece of work is a man
Though cannot see the bird in his hand
Until it flies, he cries

When you reach for my body I take the keys
Wash my hands of your agony

Oh my modern marvel
Am I pretty, pretty, pretty without your love
Oh my modern marvel
Something is always better than nothing
Track Name: Good Things (feat. Jessie Cassin)
Good things
They come
But there's no future
In all the good things

I have a torch
To light your heart dear
But you only know
How to revoke it

You should think twice
Don't you see it
You know
My heart is true
Let me be there for you

You think paradise
Is only in your future
But that's just your mind
Playing tricks on you

You should think twice
Don't you see it
You know, my heart is true
So let me be there for you

Good things
They come
But there's no future
In all the good things

You should think twice
Don't you see it
Track Name: Love Me Not (feat. Esther Stephens)
Tell me
Tell me again

Falling down again
Coming round again
Wake up inside
A love, that wasn't meant to survive
And all I lost
And all it cost
Was the chance to be
Something more than you and me

Your fingers
(Baby she bends)
So cold in mine
Your lover
(Baby she bends)
Took your hand from mine
Love me not

You could have told me
You could have shown me
You could have owned me
Hold me, hold me, don't leave me
A swollen smile
At the borderline
I am alone so you don't have to be

Your fingers
(Baby she bends)
So cold in mine
Your lover
(Baby she bends)
Took your hand from mine
Love me not

He loves me he loves me not
Track Name: Fly Low (feat. Esther Stephens)
Every time you said
I wasn't good enough
Every time you said
I wasn't hard enough
And every time you said
I didn't have the...
Made me want it more

No more
Falling in line for me and no more hide behind
No more
I know whats inside of me

Throw window wide open
Let the light light light

But I am made of stronger things
Won't fall apart at the sight of you
So now I make fear my enemy

No more
Falling in line for me and no more hide behind
No more
I know whats inside of me

Throw window wide open
Let the light light light

In line

Throw window wide open
Let the light light light
Hold the embers high
Let it burn the line line line
Track Name: Say The Same (feat. Courtney Meredith)
Some nights I woke inside the wrong woman
She wrote of drowning in measured loops
I have no real sadness
You have pinned me to my shadow

Everything moves in fast forward
'lest I forget
In this nothing city
You need blood to get you wet

I want all things on all sides at all times

And she said
No one like me again
Choose and pick a side
All things to an end
Nothing in due time
No one like me again
I won't, but I could say the same

I want all things on all sides at all times

She would have loved you forever you know
Time only goes by too fast or, slow
And you in my bed, dressed in my clothes
All things I do color me ugly and low

I want all things on all sides at all times
