Track Name: Safe House
I won’t say it’s the way I am
Won’t make you cry just because I can
No need to read me, cos I say what I think
Speak in indelible ink
Cloud blood we shed from your teeth sharp
Mouth sharp, your tongue is so sharp

But I think I’ve found my safe house
yeah I think I’ve found my safe house
oh I think I’ve found my safe house
but I’m the only one home

I’ve been seeing you everywhere
In my mind I know you wouldn’t dare
Show your face round me, since I built that tower
Disease and barbed wire
Windowless bricks and slits
Hurling stones and sticks
Breathing sickness

But I think I’ve found my safe house
yeah I think I’ve found my safe house
oh I think I’ve found my safe house
but I’m the only one home

I pretend I’m strong but I’m falling apart
I pretend you’re wrong about my broken heart
I’ve got too much pride to go back to the start
Cos honey you broke me down and all that’s left is parts
Yeah honey you broke me down and all that’s left is parts

But I think I’ve found my safe house
yeah I think I’ve found my safe house
oh I think I’ve found my safe house
but I’m the only one home
Track Name: New Friends
I got a new friend I think I met her outside
she’s so lovely she said she’d give me a ride
I got a new love we said we’d be together
I got a new love we said we’d be forever
So many new friends I think I’m having a ball
And in the morning I’ll remember them all

New friends New friends New friends
I’m gonna have them all
I got a new friend, I got a new friend, I got a new friend, I got a new friend
New friends New friends New friends
Gonna write on my wall
I got a new friend, I got a new friend, I got a new friend, I got a new friend
New friends New friends New friends


Hey guys look I’m having so much fun
Take a picture so we can show everyone
Tag us all so they can know we’re together
Take another you know it makes us look better

I’ve got a problem
I think I’m lonely
am I the only one?
No matter what I do
nobody thinks I’m cool
am I the only one?

am i the only one?

I’m having trouble believing whats true
I can’t connect though I’m connected to you
I’m having trouble figuring out whats real
if it’s not public how’d i know how to feel
Track Name: Hollow
I’m nurturing a garden
planting seeds and pulling weeds
carefully and slowly
giving each one what it needs
My nails are thick with dirt
sweat caked upon my shirt
and my wrists and hands are raw
with thorns and thistled sores

I’m making our flat cosy
hanging bunting and coloured lights
I’m watching youtube videos
on how to make origami fairy lights
I’m painting walls not pictures
I’m fixing more than just guitars
I writing songs of love
and I’m healing old scars
I might not settle down
I might not stay long in one place
but each morning I want to wake up
looking at your face

We’ll be together
You and me forever
Where you go I follow
Without you I’m hollow
We will never be apart
We are joined at the heart
Where you go I follow
Without you I’m hollow

We can grow-up together
and grow old whenever
we’ll have matching rocking chairs
and dye each others greying hairs
I’m terrible at knitting
and lawn bowls and golf
even though grandma was lady captain
at the jewish golf course
But then I thought I’d never garden
or write earnest love songs
it feels so strange
I guess that’s why they say people change

We’ll be together
You and me forever
Where you go I follow
Without you I’m hollow
We will never be apart
We are joined at the heart
Where you go I follow
Without you I’m hollow
Track Name: Letter
‘Cos I can’t write it in a letter
and I can’t tell you on the phone
no I cant put it into words
but I cant leave you alone
so I’ll sing ooh…
I’ll sing ooh…
and I hope you understand

If you could step into my mind
and see the things I see
If you could listen to my heart
and translate every beat
you wouldn’t wonder what I’m thinking
or ask me what’s the deal
I wouldn’t stumble over sentences
just to tell you how I feel

If you ever noticed
the little things I do
then you’d start to realise
they’re all revolving around you
So come a little closer
I’m trying to explain
but I know you think I’m lame

I can’t draw you in a picture
or dance you on a stage
I tried my hand at poetry
but all I gets an empty page
cos music is the only language that I know
and this is how it goes

Cos we go round and round and round
and we turn upside down
we spin around and round and round
but theres no words oh theres no communication anymore
