Track Name: Run and Hide
Time to turn around try and find
the courage not to fall behind, I'm feeling blind
Can't find your hand to lead the way
but I won't stray
I see the sun creeping in
through the trees as it shines
playing warmly on my skin
But I don't know where you are or where you've been

Been contemplating for too long
How could you be so wrong
When all along I've known you like to run and hide
So I guess I'll take a ride
to the hills where it's green
And get my head clean
The sun is getting low
Not sorry I have to go

Wrestling and rolling on the floor
First love I won't forget
Bluff would come running through the back door
She seemed upset
But don't you forget the time we misspent
Chasing dreams that got us nowhere
running faster
Running seemed to get us nowhere
Track Name: Heartbreak Bombardier
It'll be a quiet day when you're gone
Like the aftermath of a bomb
Heartbreak bombardier
Your target is getting near

It'll be a cold day when you're gone
I didn't have the time to run
I was caught in the open
And it was over in a moment

It'll be a sad day when you're gone
I won't have the stomach for anyone
I stop myself for a year
Maybe one day you'll appear

It'll be a dark day when you've gone
But I know that it had to be done
Just like the atom bomb
But it didn't bring us together

Such a waste
Why don't we go on a holiday
Maybe we'll find each other someday

There's a boy who's waiting for the 100% perfect girl
but he passed her by
There's a girl who's waiting for the 100% perfect boy
but she passed him by

Such a waste
Why don't we go on a holiday
Maybe we'll find each other someday
Track Name: Skippy's Delight
You know that you burst my bubble
I thought everything was just fine
Now it seems we're in trouble
And that was way out of line
When you said you'd try and didn't even bother
You didn't bother oh how I shuddered
You lied, I cried and you said goodbye

You said I love you and the birds sang for me then
The sun shown through your eyes
and you answered my wishes with your tender kisses
But the distance that you laid before us two
Tell me what you're gonna do now
Because you can't take it back
No you can't take me back now
You can't take it back
No you can't take me back now
Track Name: Don't Pose For The Picture
Don't pose for the picture
I like the way you look
With that distant smile
I hope that you would stay the same
That knowing girl
who'd rather stay and read all day

Swept back all black
like an old photograph
With an expression so mild that it takes me back
Love so lorn yet love so sweet
It kept me up all night I could not sleep

Picture picture
Don't lie to me
To freeze a day that was never that way
Photo photo
you've had your laugh now take it all back

Don't pose for the picture
It looks so bad
To stand so still when you know it's not like that
I had my chance
I squandered it away all in one day

Cryptic eyes do you ever lie
Your gaze pierces through me
That you make me want to
Up and down the western wall
We're on the edge I hope that we fall

Picture picture
Don't lie to me
To freeze a day that was never that way
Photo photo
you've had your laugh now take it all back
Track Name: Bomb, Drop On Me
You're a sudden accident
A highlight on an endless page
of black and white and grey
Park myself next to you with nothing to say
And every time I hit a stall
You're the one to catch me
Fall asleep into your arms
I'll just wait here for the bombs

Oh Bomb drop on me
I've got nothing left to see
Track Name: Off To The Races
I've been on my medicine since Tuesday
Oh hallelujah for today I feel alright
And I give thanks for these conversations
Where I get to say what's on my mind
Don't be on your guard it's just something you should know
Something we should talk about
When you're off to the races
I'll be counting my paces
Making sure I don't step too far

But now my covers' been blown
So where do I go
For a sweet alibi that will get me by
And I've seen you in my dreams
Where you seem to me to be
the sweetest thing I've ever lost
oh my god don't go
Because I've been a wreck since you have left
