Track Name: When It Was Summer
When it was summer
I played until the moonlight
And my vision of the future was a day or two ahead

When it was summer
I lived the way I wanted
Now I try to do that but live the way I think I should instead

I’ve gotten older but not wiser
Because I know that things were simpler then
If someone tries to tell you these are the best days of your life
Well next year they’re gonna tell you again

When it was summer
It was all a big deal
Except for things that now occupy a big space in my brain

When it was summer
All I wanted was to be grown up
But I don’t remember when that changed

My my my my my intentions
Are inventions and dimensions
Of a never ending thread
My my my my my intentions
Are just misdirections
Disguised inside my head

When it was summer
I looked in the mirror
But only after a shower to draw pictures in the glass

Everything was better in the good old days
But we can’t help it, we grow up too fast
There’s nothing wrong with thinking back on good times
But you’re in trouble when you’re living in the past
Track Name: Not The Same
You put your head up to the window as the bus drove away, eyebrows raised and
I knew it would be a long two weeks
The thought of you just won’t do, the more I say your name
I’ve got everything to do but without you it’s not the

Same things keep happening day by day but slower and slower, the days go by and
I’m sitting in my room counting the whys
The thought of you just won’t do, the more I say your name
I’ve got everything to do but without you it’s not the

Same things happen to you
Oh of course they do
Do the same things happen to you
Of course they do
Can I believe you
I have to

You put your head up to the window as the bus drove away, eyebrows raised and
I knew it would be a long two weeks
The thought of you just won’t do, the more I say your name
I’ve got everything to do but without you it’s not the
Track Name: I Knew It Was Goodbye
In your room we sat down
You looked away I looked at the ground
I said do you still love me the same

The air stagnant and stale
My foot shook, my hands cold and pale
My eyes met yours as you answered the question

Oh I had to turn away
When you took my hand and said baby kiss me
‘Cause I, knew it was goodbye

I came to drop off your clothes
I rang the doorbell but no one was home so I
Let myself in with your keys which I left on the stairs

I turned round as I drove
Checked to make sure you weren’t on your way home
And I thought ah, maybe it all will be fine
Eyes on the road, bit my lip and tried not to cry
But it didn’t work, I knew it was goodbye
Track Name: Power Them Off
Let’s look at ourselves
And stop looking at each other
It’s all up to you
Don’t think anybody cares
You do what you want
Don’t let anybody stop you
Let’s power them off and start again
Track Name: The Sun
What is it about the sun
That brings the good in everyone?
Do you notice that you change when it rains?
But it just takes one
Moment of sun
So what does that say about us?
What does that say about us?
Track Name: Make Believe
Let’s pretend the world is crashing down around us
Let’s forget that we’re ok
Pretend that we know nothing of the future
And maybe we want it that way

Up above us there are stars painted on the ceiling
The closet is shut, the nightlight holds our hand
And luckily for us everything is perfect
But let’s pretend that we don’t understand

Imagine what would happen if we made a big mistake
And there was no turning back
But don’t think too hard about it
Cuz that’s all make believe

The doors are locked, triple checked, we’re safe in here
Peak out the window confirms there’s nothing to fear
Let’s all pretend it’s a matter of time
Before we’re faced with the evidence of our crimes

Imagine what would happen if we made a big mistake
And there was no turning back
But don’t think too hard about it
Cuz that’s all make believe

We’ve worked it out and we’ll be fine
Make believe, the future will come in time
Make believe, you do your thing and I’ll do mine
Track Name: Power Them Off [2]
Let’s look at ourselves
And stop looking at each other
It’s all up to you
Don’t think anybody cares
You do what you want
Don’t let anybody stop you
Let’s power them off and start again
