Goldmine 07:07
Looks like we’re on the right side of love again. It’s easy to breathe again. It’s easy to see my hand in front of my face again. The mist has cleared and I am looking at you now, I am looking at you now. If the ocean is a long way from the land Will the gulleys and the rivers take us down? In the water is a possible escape line At the bottom of the barrel is a goldmine. You can tear away the scabbing of the old wound ‘Cos there’s a tender piece of skin that will be tough soon. Looks like the logs on the fire are burning out. There’s much more where that came from. The embers should keep us warm Until we can see the dawn Then we’ll fetch some more And we can build it all again. We can build it all again Some say that nothing ever dies I say that I’m not satisfied, I’m not satisfied. In the water is a possible escape line At the bottom of the barrel is a goldmine. Did you ever dream of anything without love? The only difference is that nothing’s ever simple. But what’s the point of doing anything that’s easy anyway? Come on, love, lift your head up. We’ll see what’s on your mind. Come on open your heat up, And let me walk inside. In the water is a possible escape line At the bottom of the barrel is a goldmine. And you can tear away the pieces of the old; Cut the message in the mould that we’re never letting go now. Did you ever dream of anything without love? The only difference is that nothing’s ever simple. But at the bottom of the barrel is a goldmine. At the bottom of the barrel is a goldmine.

Please don’t feel shame As if I could never look at you the same For the record there is nothing that’s changed And I won’t be holding you from me, Folding you up, cold shoulder and into my pocket Stowed like a dated, discarded newspaper article Read and absorbed and replaced Please don’t feel shame Does desire leave a blemish on your name? You’re entitled to your relevant aims And I won’t be telling the world Of the stories I heard From the mouth of the girl Whose heart wasn’t far From the places that I also strayed Please don’t feel strange I’ll attempt to make it easier to stay Even though you’ll still be feeling this way For a time, and I have to decline So persist with what’s yours, I’ll keep mine And we’ll both carry on with our lives And the passage of time Please don’t feel shame You and I will just be heading on our way With regrets about the needless mistakes But we can’t be holding a grudge When the headlines change every day And the stories I was absorbed in Are soon yesterday’s news And as much as I’d like to Retain them and you You’ll probably struggle to stay No, you don’t have to cover your face No, you don’t have to exit in shame

Call To Arms 06:27
Thirteen months and a few days Since I made a pact with myself And I knew that I was foolish to throw down my gun I got two further years ‘til my armistice is done And you weren’t far from the same strip of land I called home Solitary and sworn so You were sure you had no call to arms Bow to the inevitability now We broke truce, I crossed into your borders somehow I’ve been digging myself an open grave So oblivious to the trap I laid Help me honey, I’m inches from the edge And there’s no need to fall in love, I didn’t mean to fall in love I just got carried away, there’s no one to blame I was warming to enough, but now I’m howling for too much And there’s no easy escape, no tug of the chain But I think we’re ok There’s no such thing as fear of flying There is just the aversion to fall And I’ve dropped too many times to be jumping again Without good assurance of wind in these wings But honey I’ve gotta tell you Although the trepidation is strong Each little morsel of hope you provide Fills me with the belief I can leap from these heights We’ve been kidding ourselves to walk away Deaf to pressure that heralded our fate Now there’s nothing I long to do but stay And there’s no need to fall in love, I didn’t mean to fall in love I just got carried away with that breeze in my face And I not calling for a crutch, atop this cliff I need a nudge I just get nervous these days, so easily phased But I’ll try to be brave Funny thing, funny thing is You and I are getting by easy Funny thing, funny thing is You and I are getting by

Throw back the sheets, take in the sight Blow away the cobwebs, set the burners alight Trust time to heal, learn from mistakes Fire up the engines, adventure awaits With brambles wrapped round every side The time to uproot has arrived So let it all out, don’t get swallowed by shame Or bury your head in the sand once again Whenever in doubt you might find someone to change your mind And make the sun shine for the first time again Cut back the weeds, mark out the way This age-old machine will be moving again Inch by inch, step by step The forgotten feel of the ground that you tread The wheels in motion; you take flight No destination in your mind So let it all out, don’t get swallowed by shame Or bury your head in the sand once again Whenever in doubt you might find someone to change your mind And make the sun shine for the first time again Tarred with a brush that belongs in a bygones gallery Sold in a lot with a box full of junk And perished antiques Cursed with the season and seeds of the past agonies Safe in the blackest of thoughts taking root Tear it from you
