Sunscreen 02:25
And in comes that smell again The one where you put sunscreen on my face And I start shaking like a child Wrapped in a towel again The one with water dripping down my leg Hey how long can you stay and play? How long can you play? How long can you play? How long can you play? And in comes that song again The one that you sing softly by the side of my bed And I can hear it in my head Play with my hair again That one with diamond stars and sunny days Hey how long can you sing and stay? How long can you stay? How long can you stay? How long can you stay? How long can you stay? How long can you stay? How long can you stay? How long can you stay? And in comes that dream again That one where I can never run away I thought that it would go away

Baby Calf 02:25
Baby Calf with your head so small Never give you a break in that baby stall The chains are growing tighter all around you Mum was crying for you when they took you away Her shaky brown eyes won’t see the light of day That love is in the past and its behind you You’ll never know what’s wrong Never know what’s right You’re only good for what you make tonight A couple of punches take you off your feet And you’re trying to stand but your legs are weak You don’t know where you are and what’s inside you You’ll never know what’s wrong Never know what’s right You’re only good for what you make tonight You’ll never know what’s wrong Never know what’s right You’re only good for what you make tonight

I washed away your clothes with all my sadness This cotton heavy load won’t make it through You’ll never see your socks again They disappeared, I don’t know when Gone, the waste that traced me back to you Cause I Lost it in the Laundry, lost and found me Like I’m living the dream now Woah Lost it in the Laundry, lost around me like I’m living the dream now Woah Cause you’re gone (cause you’re gone) I’m not wrong (I’m not wrong) It’s the way it has to be You’re gone (you’re gone) You’re gone (you’re gone) I’m running thin on tight detergent madness To carry out a load not meant for two But now you’re clothes are washed away They’ll never see the light of day This heavy bin’s not made to carry you Cause I Lost it in the Laundry, lost and found me Like I’m living the dream now Woah Lost it in the Laundry, lost around me like I’m living the dream now Woah Cause you’re gone (cause you’re gone) I’m not wrong (I’m not wrong) It’s the way it has to be lost it in the... lost it in the... lost it in the... lost it in the laundry lost it in the... lost it in the...

Come up crawling on my floor So insecure Trying to pick up the clothes that you wore This day is yours Step out the door And look all around to the people that The people that show me Harvey High School doesn’t slow me For all that you know me Harvey High School doesn’t own me Touch her hair and make her cry You change your eyes The weight of a word made her want to go hide They say it's the magic of chasing your dream He can’t sell your name when you’re playing it clean But people they show me Harvey High School doesn’t slow me For all that you know me Harvey High School doesn’t own me You don’t own me You don’t own me Come up crawling on my floor I’m not afraid But people they show me Harvey High School doesn’t slow me For all that you know me Harvey High School doesn’t own me

Running Back 03:09
Here you go again, here you go again I think I’m missing you, something You say you want it to end, but here you go again I think I’m missing it, something And I ran to meet the doctor up ahead Said it’s got to be one of those dreams Ran to meet the doctor and he said We’re keeping it down and clean Here you go again, here you go again I think you’re missin it, something You follow through now and then, but here you go again I think you’re missing it, something And I ran to meet the doctor up ahead, Said it’s got to be one of those dreams Ran to meet the doctor and he said We’re keeping it down and clean And I ran to meet the doctor up ahead, Said it’s got to be one of those dreams Ran to meet the doctor and he said We’re keeping it down and clean

Look at me softly just another time I don’t need anything but this Look at me softly and I’ll look at you too Look at me softly look at you Speak low speak slowly for another hour Quietly carrying the room The whole world goes silent when you speak up from quiet like my Ears were made for only you Sing Up Sing Softly and I’ll sing with you too And that’s all I’ll ever need from you I swear that I know you from another place One where we’ve gone and left before Your eyes look so softly so far home in my memory and I wish I could see them longer soon Sing Up Sing Softly and I’ll sing with you too And that’s all I’ll ever need from you Never be sorry Sing Up Sing Softly And I’ll sing it quiet, like you do Never be sorry Sing Up Sing Softly Cause softly was made for me and you

I’m coming to the edge And I can hardly even tell you What I’m looking for Cause every side I’m looking through Is filling me with shades and colours That you wore Now I’ve got some faces I belong to Some eyes to call my name when I’m alone And when I need somebody to hold onto Your path of watercolour brings me home I think I’ve been here before I recognize these walls I’ve been here all alone I think I’ve been here before I think I’ve seen it all I’ve felt this way before Young and rainy days of blue The other kids would run Say you’re not old enough I’d try and put a crate against a fence Cause its too tall And I can’t see over Now I’ve got some faces I belong to Some eyes to call my name when I’m alone And when I need somebody to hold onto Your path of watercolour brings me home I think I’ve been here before I recognize these walls I’ve been here all alone I think I’ve been here before I think I’ve seen it all I’ve felt this way before

Turn off the light, crawl into the sheets I stay up thinking and you fall asleep The smell of your clothes, moonlight on your cheek Helplessly hoping you’d wake up for me The sound of your breath is like hearing the rain Your chest full of air and mine full of pain And I will not wait one more moment for this kind of love Don’t ask, I don’t have it I will not wait one more moment for this kind of love It's not like you want it It’s not like you care And all these things come in time The sun will break, I’ll be fine Which books are yours, which socks are mine? When did we let all our laundry combine? The words that you use, figures of speech What were you saying and what did I teach? The sound of your breath is like hearing the rain Your chest full of air and mine full of pain I will not wait one more moment for this kind of love Don’t ask, I don’t have it I will not wait one more moment for this kind of love It's not like you want it It’s not like you care And all these things come in time The sun will break, I’ll be fine All these things... And I’m awake, all at rest This night is a mess I will not wait one more moment for this kind of love It’s not like you want it I will not wait one more moment for this kind of love It's not like you want it It’s not like you care And all these things come in time The sun will break, I’ll be fine All these things come in time The sun will break, I’ll be fine

Muddy Water 03:44
Muddy Water running away I want to see your eyes in every colour Hear your voice at every time of day Our shoes are soaked, it’s so hard to take You know it’s never one without the other Lying in this river wide awake I can feel you coming closer Seasons change and we grow older I can feel you coming closer Seasons change and we grow older Rising up and over my knees Soon I’m floating higher so much farther Wondering of the places you could be And though the ground is so hard to see I never doubt whatever’s fallen under I never doubt a day of you and me I can feel you coming closer Seasons change and we grow older I can feel you coming closer Seasons change and we grow older I hear your voice it speaks so clearly It speaks from 40 miles far away Muddy Water’s running near me I feel you closer every day I hear your voice it speaks so clearly It speaks from 40 miles far away Muddy Water’s running near me I feel you closer every day I can feel you coming closer Seasons change and we grow older I can feel you coming closer Seasons change and we grow older
