Track Name: Takes As Long As It Takes
walk, don't run
this ain't no time to be having fun
and i'm not done
it takes as long as it takes
to fix all the mess that i make
and mend all that i break

all the yarns, that i spun
are all now coming undone
i see another sun
it takes as long as it takes
to fix all the mess that i make
and mend all that i break
Track Name: The Distraction
i'm on the mend
but we get closer after every day we spend
lying to each other, so we can just stay friends
no one say when

i wanna distract you, so you can help distract me

we're on a fence
and fall off either way and need to be repaired
the years have made us frightened, made us both just scared
no one say when

just take a guess
or even better yet dig deeper and confess
but always cautious never want to cause offence
no one say when

i wanna distract you, so you can help distract me

i wanna distract you, so you can help distract me,
so i can help distract you, so you can help distract me...
Track Name: I Always Hid
a fresh start it broke my heart
i fell into a hole i'd dug myself
my stage persona, the fragile loner
caught up with me & affected my health

but i always hid
i always hid

the white lies were cut and dry
evidence of fear in a damaged soul
my magic beans, those vivid dreams
all one by one turned into trolls

but i always hid
i always hid

the quiet night, the one man fight
a lengthy monologue in an empty home
the twilight sky, where i learnt to fly
got darker and turned me into stone

i always hid
i always hid
Track Name: The Gale
memories float in on a breeze
but i'm currently caught in a gale
i try to sleep and get blown off my feet
i'm not sure that i'm very well

a few hours ago
was out drinking somewhere i didn't know
so i stopped and followed myself home
got lost on the way
like i seemed to do every other day
the journey was clumsy and slow

i'm never alone
haunted by everyone that i've ever known
the casualty list will grow and grow
and over the years
the illusions hopefully will disappear
but i'm banned from casting the first stone

the pouring rain derailed my train
of thought and my head starts to swell
and open my eyes to look up at the sky
as i wait for my sunny spell
