Track Name: Heavy Heart
Heavy Heart

Oh please just understand that constellations form to spell your name
And in darkened skies, I see you illuminate the night again
You may not realise but dreams that form awake my soul
Searching for a heart to hold that understands
As shooting stars collide, as they combine, as they divide,
and as they create a glowing light, that could be us tonight


Hold on to me, ignore your heavy heart
Close your eyes and breathe, we'll never be apart
Just keep me warm, keep my blood flow pumping
Just keep me still, I feel a blackout coming on
And I don't want to fall and lose my memories of you


I'm just so unsure, I'm struggling to find my feet
Begging you to make me feel alive again
I feel numb inside and every single word you speak
Makes me believe my heart is weak and open wide
You're welcome to control me now, you're welcome to be everything I knew you would
Because I can't explain how free I feel, emancipated by the fact that finally I'm understood


Hold on to me, ignore your heavy heart
Close your eyes and breathe, we'll never be apart
Just keep me warm, keep my blood flow pumping
Just keep me still, I feel a blackout coming on
And I don't want to fall and lose my memories of you
Track Name: Lights Don't Shine
Lights Don't Shine

I never meant to let you down
But secrecy made my world go round
Always hiding what I'd done.

We were never built to last too long
With the stakes so high, I went so wrong
But I've never fallen out of love

Lights don’t shine this side of the city
We’re operating blind
Lights won’t shine until you forgive me
Please open your eyes

I could never put the world to rights
But it kills me to think that for just one night
I could have lost you for eternity

But as the lightning tumbles from the sky
With the rain around, I'll keep you dry
Do you remember why you fell in love?

Lights don’t shine this side of the city
We’re operating blind
Lights won’t shine until you forgive me
Please open your eyes

So she comes to me she says
I want to talk about, talk about us
I say well how do you mean
Are you saying there’s a chance that we could start all over

And then the clouds all part
And she says living without you would never work
Oh it would be too hard
I want to start all over

Yes I’m willing to give this another try
Yes I’m willing to make a sacrifice
I’d do anything that you require
To keep you by my side
Track Name: Heartbreaker
Heartbreaker

Picture the scene, it's dark and the clock strikes ten
A young sitting alone on the pavement crying again
She doesn't realise that there's something in her eyes
That grabs my stare and keeps it there each and every time

She throws compliments away (she throws them all so far away)
Because her father told her she was a waste of space
The youngest daughter of a broken home
Working in a supermarket, feeling so alone

Oh she could be a heartbreaker
She could be the one to keep me up at night
Oh she could be a heartbreaker
She don’t know the way I look at her
She don’t know what she’s worth

It’s the way that she dresses
It’s the way that she walks
It’s the way that she whispers
It’s the way that she talks

She could be in magazines (she’s got a face for magazines)
She’s got a perfect smile and eyes, she’s got everything it seems
But confidence has always stopped her going anywhere
She’s looking in the mirror but she’s still so unaware

Oh she could be a heartbreaker
She could be the one to keep me up at night
Oh she could be a heartbreaker
She don’t know the way I look at her
She don’t know what she’s worth

Heartbreaker
If she could only realise, realise
Heartbreaker
She’d lose me in her eyes, her eyes

Oh she could be a heartbreaker
She could be the one to keep me up at night
Oh she could be a heartbreaker
She don’t know the way I look at her
She don’t know what she’s worth

It’s the way that she dresses
It’s the way that she walks
It’s the way that she whispers
It’s the way that she talks
Track Name: The Tallest Tree
The Tallest Tree

I knew a girl who spent all her days in the woods
She never had anything worthwhile to love
She had soft blue eyes, an earthy smile
She had long blond hair that went on for miles

And all that she would say is that she wished she were born
So that the cruel, cruel autumn caused her leaves to fall
She wished that she could call the forest her home
Oh she wished that she had some roots to call her own

And she said

I'll stand as still as the tallest tree
Embracing the sun as it warms my leaves
And all of the creatures that live in my branches will say
What a beautiful place to spend a warm summer's day

I knew a boy who thought that the city was dead
And we should build our houses in the stars instead
He said just give me some space to float so free
He said I don't want to be tied down by this gravity

And he knew this girl and he loved her to bits
But they couldn't agree on a single thing
She said how you gonna live without this air to breathe
And he said well how you gonna live without these stars to see

And she said

I'll stand as still as the tallest tree
Embracing the sun as it warms my leaves
And all of the creatures that live in my branches will say
What a beautiful place to spend a warm summer's day

But does it really matter where you are
Where distance only keeps you far apart
If you love her then you know the choice that you must make
Because you know you’ll never find a girl like this again

So he said

I'll stand as still as the tallest tree
Embracing the sun as it warms my leaves
And all of the creatures that live in my branches will say
What a beautiful place to spend a warm summer's day
