Track Name: Boy
Boy

Lift that arm
Need to see the bruises

Oh, Ain’t you cold and lonely?
Baby, I got news
Fresh this morning,
I'm gonna spill the beans
I'm gonna come clean

Everything I said
Oh, they was lies
All the letters you wrote
I threw on the fire
All the promises I made?
With fingers crossed behind my back

If you get hit hard enough too many times
Things get kind of dark at night
Goodnight boy, goodnight boy
Goodnight boy, dying words

I swear to God,
This is the last one
I just love ‘em all
So much
These are the days of wine and roses
But just for me
Always only me

Everything I said
Oh, they was lies
All the letters you wrote
I threw on the fire
All the promises I made?
With fingers crossed behind my back

If you get hit hard enough too many times
Things get kind of dark at night
Goodnight boy, goodnight boy
Goodnight boy, dying words
Track Name: I'm The Ghost
I'm the ghost

Nothing burns like a bridge to you
I had never known suffering
Til I had to watch your silhouette fade
It seems my thoughts are a shrine to you
Do you remember when the rains came down
And you drank the sweet water from my mouth?

Well the rains don’t fall here anymore
Torn up pictures of you haunt my bedroom floor
They’re afraid of me because I’m the ghost
Of a boy who never lived at all

Summer came and I slept right through
I have never known suffering like the darkness in you
Echoes of pain shake my rusted heart
Do you remember when the rains came down and you drank the sweet water from my mouth?

Well the rains don’t fall here anymore
Familiar blood stains my bedroom floor
They’re afraid of me because I’m the ghost
Of a boy who never lived at all

Well the rains don’t fall here anymore
Torn up pictures of you haunt my bedroom floor
They’re afraid of me because I’m the ghost
Of a boy who never lived at all
Track Name: Parts
Parts

These are the same old lines
I fall for every time
Ancient and bold
Or just tired and old?
You decide

It’s a shame you spend your days so lonely
I hope your colours never run
Things you do should never fade

There’s teeth in the rocks
And parts underneath the stair
More tied to strings yeah
And hung into my hair

It’s like she hates the words
But loves to watch me talk
Like lyrics are soaked in rain
There are colours I will never see
It’s a shame you spend your days so lonely
I hope your colours never run
Things you do should never fade

There’s teeth in the rocks
And parts underneath the stair
More tied to strings yeah
And hung into my hair

There’s teeth in the rocks
Track Name: Alone Tonight
Alone Tonight

I was aching at the bar once again
Everybody here knows my name
If the conversation starts
Where do I begin?
I would love to walk you home
But you confuse me staying around
With hanging on

We reach an easy truce in the twilight
Somewhere between the town and home
If the universe is fucked
Where do I begin?
She would love to see me gone
But you confuse me staying around
With hanging on

Please don’t leave me alone tonight

Feeling like a clown when the laughter stops
Dancing in the searchlight on the hill
Every hour hurts
The last one kills
Silhouettes do not lie
That thing the colour of a dying bruise?
That’s the sky

Please don’t leave me alone tonight

Please don’t leave me alone tonight
