Track Name: Limbless
Pre train rides our bodies glide
I'm taking my time, my limbs ache
I feel like I can make enough of an effort to see you again
3 hour train rides
Will you be there when i've biked 20 miles?

And they'll say that our love flies like a bird near limbless whose feathers are frayed
Will you still care when i'm buried by shame

Post train rides through heady sighs
You said you cried when I left
I'd be lying if I said I was fine
But after 2 hours sleep at 5am I realise that love is a burden that pays off in the end

And they'll say that our love flies like a bird near limbless whose feathers are frayed
Will you still care when i'm buried by shame

When we started it was all hiding in steel car parks, waiting for storms to pass
Now it's love, hope, lies and hands clasped
Be my last

And they'll say that our love flies like a bird near limbless whose feathers are frayed
Will you still care when i'm buried by shame
Track Name: Hospital / Funeral
Four days done in a second
I reckon that luckily six months is my limit
We've been in luck so far with it
I'm grabbing my coat
Taking stale hallways and stairs
Feeling like a hospital, looking like 2010

I can't pretend that i'm not waiting for you
I can't defend the stupid things I do
I said that I'd rather choose
The distance and quiet nights over not knowing you

Six months gone in a minute
I'm in it for more than familiar streets
In which I knew that I always wanted to live
I'm grabbing my keys
I take elevators over stairs
Feeling like a funeral, looking like I care

I can't pretend that i'm not waiting for you
I can't defend the stupid things I do
I said that I'd rather choose
The distance and quiet nights over not knowing you

I'm grabbing my coat
I take stale hallways and stairs
Feeling like a hospital
Looking like i'm grabbing my keys
I take elevators over stairs
Feeling like a funeral, looking like I care
Track Name: March
When young love unwinds worries dissipate and disappear from mind
Screen light keeps us blind
Up all night, we're sleepless and can't keep track of time

We're moving into March and memories of Summer sun and love are still with me
We build on it and off we go wondering how every day we see will unfold

With our hands gripped like vices we take on the day alone
Knowing that outside advice is probably best left untold
But we're taking our time

I'll wait for four more days, catch the train, we'll make our way to someplace safe
I hate the fractured way we have to bear the wait until we meet again

Faster we will march through memories of Winter Streets to heat that we once knew
Every year is the same, repeat the cycle, freezing fingers, holding out for June

With our hands gripped like vices we take on the day alone
Knowing that outside advice is probably best left untold
But we're taking our time

But it's never enough, no call is ever long enough // No hold is ever strong enough
And i'm done with streets that were right for me when I was young
I felt stuck between a coast and love but all that was here for me has long since gone

With our hands gripped like vices we take on the day alone
Knowing that outside advice is probably best left untold
But we're taking our time
Track Name: Nights #2
Are you trying to dissapoint me?
Time and time again I've tried to take blame
You're out of sight
I'm out of line
I dread every day the same

Another night at the foot of the stairs
You're listening in
The only way to really know what i'm thinking
When we've had another night alone sleepless, scared
Falling out, our night routines
Holding out for a familiar repeat
At least soon, in the morning, we'll meet
Track Name: Disappoint You
Will the familiar feeling of you leaving ever change?
I write a list of all the people that I miss and I start at the top of the page
But it's always the same
I write your name and let my head change lanes
Close the cover, go about my day
And I wait

I just don't want to dissapoint you
And I don't want you feeling wronged
Laid there in denial
Silent in our sighs
We'll take another night
Then say our goodbyes

I spent nights with eyes on the ceiling almost every day
Hours awake laid in a semi-there state
Both too stubborn to admit it's late
But it's always the same
Because between the fight and unavoidable decline lies a worry that you're not alright

I just don't want to dissapoint you
And I don't want you feeling wronged
Laid there in denial
Silent in our sighs
We'll take another night
Then say our goodbyes

(But will you want this anymore, will you still want this, Eleanor?)

So here it is
My note to you
Now that we're through
I love you
Track Name: What I'd Give
What I'd give for cold floors, phone calls, late nights
Rides home, failing tyres
Fulfilled and tired, lights fading
But carry on with how it felt when Orion's Belt led us home
Bodies furled, us against the world

And I know that I'd be better off if I wasn't sleeping alone

What I'd give to hold on to all the long nights and long walks
No good goodbyes, exhausted but lying, eyes drop
But carry on with what it meant each time you said let's go home
Bodies furled, us against the world

And I know that I'd be better off if I wasn't sleeping alone

My clothes were in your drawers
Neatly folded and then thrown in
You're still in my thoughts
And that's not going anywhere

And I know that I'd be better off if I wasn't sleeping alone
