Track Name: Winter's Song
I wish it were winter
I wish you were here
and all the while you’re away
I’m away as well

the flowers in my garden are all frozen
or they are asleep under the ground
and I am a shadow in the morning
waiting for the sun


How I wish that I was stronger
I wish that I was there
I’m getting so much older I’m getting scared
I wish you were here


When I was younger
When I was, Oh I don’t remember
And oh how we have changed
and I have changed as well

the people on the train they never smile
or do anything at all
I’m getting tired of being a number
and waiting for the sun

Chorus
How I wish that I was stronger
I wish that I was there
I’m getting so much older I’m getting scared
I wish you were here


I am not a hero
and I am not a saint no
But all the while you’re in pain
I’m in pain as well

The voices in my head are getting louder
they’re saying please don’t come undone
I’ll hold you in my arms until the morning
waiting for the sun
And I am a child who is stumbling and wondering what’s to come
Unafraid and unaware, just waiting for the sun
Track Name: Paper Hearts
Paper hearts and paper souls
Paper people who crease and fold
Darling darling do you know?
You know

Oh my how you’ve grown
Oh my how you’ve grown
and we stifle seeds that were sown
then we kill the one that we own

Blisters sting my heels
I love to steal and I have stolen many things
what you felt I stole away
what you feel I stole away

I cannot see I cannot hear
blur the words and I am noticing
the changes that are me

Oh my how we’ve grown
Oh my how we’ve grown
And we stifle seeds that were sown
Then we kill the one that was home

Darling darling do you know?
hide behind your teeth and let it go
No-one here will ever know
how you feel
and your becoming a stranger to yourself

No place feels like home
No place feels like home
I’m getting tangled in these roads
and every house just feels hollow

Darling darling do you know, you know
Paper hearts and paper souls
paper people who crease and fold
Track Name: Dubious Fowl
I'd follow you into the dark
would you follow me into the light
the dogs were snapping at my heals
they made me bleed
and I left a trail for them to hunt me down
all of my clothes were stolen
so I ran naked for a while
I wear a crown of those who failed long before I ever did
now I hear them whisper in my head
you are the dubious fowl
you are the sweat on my brow
you are the eyes that look me up but then look me
down down down down down

We need eachother
no other one will do
I have a fever
I'm burning over you

Am I living
foolish little doves
they come and beat down on their little drums
Am I living
for the foolish one I love
I tried to love him but now
he is gone
it bring me
down down down down down

We need eachother
no other one will do
I have a fever
I'm burning over you

Am I living
foolish little doves
they come and beat down on their little drums
Am I living
for the foolish one I love
I tried to love him but now
he is gone
it bring me
down down down down down

So I keep my pain
In a jar
You watch me try to escape
but then you claw your way
but then you claw your way
back into my heart
we're foolish as they come
who am I fooling?
This is where I'm numb
could you pick me up
before I go and fall back down down down down down
Track Name: Flying Fish live
Do you have any wings
Oh no what should I speak
alas I don't have any wings
only fins only fins
and I would swim away

But I'm just a fish without any sea
now all the birds are laughing at me
where are your wings
where are your wings
how can you fly away with those things
how can you fly away with those things

Do you know
how, how to change
said the bird
to the fish
he doesn't know why
he doesn't know why
but he saw the fish cry now
I don't know how
But I lost my ocean

and I want to fly
up up above
but I don't know why
I wasn't born with wings

But I'm just a fish without any sea
now all the birds are laughing at me
where are your wings
where are your wings
how can you fly away with those things
where are your wings where are your wings
how can you fly away

one by one
they went their ways
oh my God
what am I meant to do with these fins
what am I meant to do with these fins

But I'm just a fish without any sea
now all the birds are laughing at me
where are your wings
where are your wings
how can you fly away with those things
where are your wings where are your wings
how can you fly away
