I don’t know ‘bout glory I don’t know ‘bout fate Do you still want to know me? Don’t tell me it’s to late Heard that God had failed you Saw the heavens break Fool among the pales, blew The glue that seals the gate I don’t know ‘bout glory I don’t know ‘bout fate Do you still want to know me? Don’t tell me it’s to late So I’ll sit and wonder So I’ll make a change But I’m not growing fonder There’s a piece inside the rain I don’t know ‘bout glory I don’t know ‘bout fate Do you still want to know me? Don’t tell me it’s to late

You Tell Me 04:46
Do you remember When we sang together? I was a boat, I was lost in your sea We would go walking Could feel the boat docking But my only care was for you loving me Loving me, you loving me My only care was for you loving me Never quite settled The keys to the metal Matter of fact we were barely home He smokes what you give him Hopes he’s forgiven You’ll let him off ‘cause you love him so Love him so, oh love him so You’ll let him off ‘cause you love him so You tell me what you want… I hear you crying Crying for someone That doesn’t mean anything to me A beauty in sadness You’re not so bad, miss Clear your mind, it’ll set you free Set you free, oh set you free Clear your mind, my love, it’ll set you free Clear your mind, my love, it’ll set you free

Hollows 02:25
Turn around to make sense of it all Walk away if you start to fall Feel the ground that you walk upon Expect nothing more On repeat, that’s how I show it off Try to sleep, oh I know it’s tough It’s crystal clear, yeah it’s smooth and soft Get yourself off the floor If you’re feeling obscene Like a cog in the machine Take it easy, give it time, time, time A hollow gesture springs to mind

Whole 03:23
If you love yourself enough To make it right when it’s all tough Then you should know That it all comes around If for some reason you don’t feel Like any love you feel is real One day you’ll see That you aren’t on your own I’m feeling whole I’m feeling whole again I’m feeling whole I’m feeling whole again Serendipity is real As real as any of the meals That you will find Keep turning up again And when the joker and the thief Come knocking at my door, good grief I’ll feel alone Like I’m on my own again I’m feeling whole I’m feeling whole again I’m feeling whole I’m feeling whole again I wish that I had an excuse To take my neck out of the noose That ties us down Holds you to your own When the daffodils have died I wish that I had maybe tried To let you know That I’m on your side On a Sunday I walk past The fearing folk that have a blast When they aren’t home When they are far away I feel you crawling up my spine A spider or a porcupine Is not enough To make you understand That I’m feeling whole I’m feeling whole again I’m feeling whole I’m feeling whole again I’m feeling whole I’m feeling whole again I'm feeling whole I’m feeling whole again

Summer 03:55 video
Summer and the weather is fine Summer and the weather is fine Any way the wind blows, that’s the way the river flows Summer and the weather is fine Problems of a worried man Problems of a worried man Resting on your shoulder, leave it till you’re older Problems of a worried man Summer and the weather is fine Summer and the weather is fine Any way the wind blows, that’s the way the river flows Summer and the weather is fine Wait until the sky turns blue Wait until the sky turns blue Sunrise it will cover you, sisters and your brothers too Wait until the sky turns blue Summer and the weather is fine Summer and the weather is fine Any way the wind blows, that’s the way the river flows Summer and the weather is fine Worries will all fade away Worries will all fade away If you find a lover, take her under cover Worries will all fade away … All I’m waiting for is you All I’m waiting for is you Tell all of your friends to, wait until the sky’s blue All I’m waiting for is you Summer and the weather is fine Summer and the weather is fine Any way the wind blows, that’s the way the river flows Summer and the weather is fine … Summer and the weather is fine Summer and the weather is fine Any way the wind blows, that’s the way the river flows Summer and the weather is fine

Fear I’m still standing here! Hold in every day And joy Joy surrounds Me and you I was howlin’ Saw me cowlin’ now and then Shaken broken Wake and hope there’s nothing left to mend Alone A wolf in the woods Tree falls down To think That you’re my handful Shields the wind I was howlin’ Saw me cowlin’ now and then Shaken broken Wake and hope there’s nothing left to mend I’m lost On my own Mind when you see me fade The cost Of being alone No one here when I’m afraid I was howlin’ Saw me cowlin’ now and then Shaken broken Wake and hope there’s nothing left to mend Walking past Other people How do you breathe? Oh, I don’t think I Want to leave here and work it out myself I was howlin’ Saw me cowlin’ now and then Shaken broken Wake and hope there’s nothing left to mend I was howlin’ Saw me cowlin’ now and then Shaken broken Wake and hope there’s nothing left to mend

You and I, you and I Me and you, me and you I have to say I was surprised I have to say you make me new Round and round, round and round Back and forth, back and forth Once again I was confound Once again I wanted more I tell myself I’m cooking I tell myself I should Tell other people I’m not looking But I’m still looking Start again, start again Take two, start anew It’s funny that we’re even friends It’s funny that I know you Different pages, different wages  It shouldn’t be as it is I’ve no seen you in ages When you don’t see you start to miss I tell myself I’m cooking I tell myself I should Tell other people I’m not looking But I’m still looking Who do you see in me? Who do you expect me to be? I’m just here to let you know That it’s all for show And it’s all for free It’s at end, at an end Turn the page, turn the page Look at me I can’t pretend I’ll see you at a different stage I tell myself I’m cooking I tell myself I should Tell other people I’m not looking But I’m still looking

Oh my love! I’ve been loosing my sleep Trying to keep it together, but I can’t keep it forever Oh my home! I’ve been counting my days Thinking up ways to be alone, like a phone that’s never phoned Be the one that cares Love she’s fine and fair I don’t know how to go with the flow How to let it go when my bones don't grow Like they used to Oh, like they used to Oh my sleep! Can you help me find? Been losing my mind most nights, sing along and you’ll feel alright Oh my feet! They’ve been searching the town Dragging me down today, but I’m sure I’ll find a way Be the one that cares Love she’s fine and fair I don’t know how to go with the flow How to let it go when my bones don't grow Like they used to Oh, like they used to Oh my days! I’ve been solo You gave me somewhere to go, you’re a fire in the frost After all There’s a light in the dark A crucible spark, it’s the feeling that keeps us on Be the one that cares Love she’s fine and fair I don’t know how to go with the flow How to let it go when my bones don't grow Like they used to Oh, like they used to

I feel delirious You know I'm serious I want to know When you're coming home It's so much easier When you feel queasier To just let it go Once for all If you find me on the floor I'll say again once more I'm feeling whole Like I've never done A different circumstance When you don't want to dance Just let me blow Your mind Let the moonshine Let the moon glow Let It all fall apart As it sails down your throat Let the moon find Let the moon go Let the thunder take hold You're the strings to my bow The food that's on my plate Will be a real estate Sit down and chew You’re skin and bones And you will take control The borders and patrols And let me in Let me know When the night has ended We'll kid on we pretended To have a home Let the moonshine Let the moon glow Let It all fall apart As it sails down your throat Let the moon find Let the moon go Let the moonshine Let the moon glow Let It all fall apart As it sails down your throat Let the moon find Let the moon go Let the thunder take hold You're the strings to my bow
