Track Name: Cross Borders, Common Lines
It feels so easy to write about love
I'm up late and waiting again for you
We've hands clasped asking the truth about what comes soon when you choose to move
Well, we'll see
But will you be the one who waits for me?

Tell me your temptations, your worries and doubts
And all the people you can't live without
I know how it looks when my eyes close and my head drops
Like i'm sleeping when you're talking
Yeah, but don't stop

I know that you'll be thinking two years from now
How we'll make it work but somehow cross borders, common lines
You'll be alright
Track Name: Concourse Bridge
Under the Concourse Bridge I hid, and waited and waited
Seeking shelter from the rain
I know that I could stay here
But one step at a time my patience can get the best of me
I just gift myself a sigh, hold you, turn my back and say goodbye

Under the Concourse Bridge i've been thinking
And taking my time to get back home to streets as narrow as minds here
But one step at a time my patience can get the best of me
I just tell myself i'm fine, drag myself up and say goodbye

And all of a sudden we're back to square one
And i know that in these cold months, before I leave, I will be up before the sun

Under the Concourse Bridge I wish that our time would come soon
I'll meet your coy smile from the train
Can you feel it getting closer..

(Under the Concourse Bridge I hid and waited and waited
I'm thinking and taking my time to get back home to streets as narrow as minds here)
Track Name: Matthew
I can't help thinking about what i'm going to do

The ideas I had at 8 were still so great at 9
The things I did at 24 were flawed by 25

Matthew calved his arm with his name and favourite band

The ideas he had at 8 were still so great at 9
The things he did at 24 were flawed by 25
Track Name: Counting Steps
9am's Brocco Bank doesn't sleep like you wish you could
Awake with cars, morning rushes, troubles misunderstood
You write yourself into ruts
I've got a mountain range for miles
They tell me that i'm preparing to self-destruct

Keeping photos non-existent
I won't forget you in an instant
Trace a love affair in song

The view from the platform shares lovers coming, going
Shows them in the comfort knowing that they'll be together soon
A keepsake i'm constructing in search of hopeful wanting
Were they over before they began?
I'm rebuilding love up from the ground

Keeping photos non-existent
I'm consistently inconsistent
You were right to call me wrong
I'm tirelessly persistent
I won't forget you in an instant
Trace a love affair in song

Writing pre-sleep goodbye notes so convinced that I wouldn't need to meet the morning light
I wish that I was sick of you
Trying not to sleep on trains on the way home
A late weekend of abandoned buildings, counting steps, tempting traffic, I hope it never ends
