Track Name: Curled Into A Ball
The world, it curled into a ball
Pretended we weren’t here
There’s too much it needs to solve
It couldn’t start here
Where the radiator hates me
Waits for cold and then breaks down
Would have been an excuse to hold you
If you’d happened to be around

But coincidence only happens
At times you don’t expect
I’ll probably only ever see you
When I’m drinking and I haven’t slept

And you’ll ask how I’ve been
And I’ll pause for far too long
So you’ll know that I’m lying
When I promise nothing’s wrong
I mean, I’m bad, but I’ve been worse
And all my friends are closer to it
So I’ll put my fears into a verse
So no-one has to hear it

And in the awkward silence
I’ll wish I was freezing in my flat
When you sit down next to me
On the train that we both catch
Track Name: Feel Anything
Dressed in just my T-shirt that you said you liked
As you walked down the stairs in the dark last night
You thought to yourself:
“Why do I do this to myself?
Will it always be like this?
With more people I won’t miss?
I know I can sell myself for a higher price than this”

I want to know if you feel anything at all

I felt your back against my chest
when I was lost with you
I felt your back against my chest
And I fell
I fell for you
Track Name: Pretending To Pretend
I appreciate all of the time
That you spent on me, trying to be a little less tongue tied
If this sounds wrong, I’m asking out of interest
Do you take your mask off at night when you get undressed?

Will these feelings have an end?
Should we think about an end?
Or keep pretending to pretend?

‘cause if you don’t know where I’ve been
And I’m so used to me
Then I’m not fighting clean
I am not where you want me
‘cause I don’t treat me kindly
Weighed down by personal history
I’m working for a day
That I finally forgive me
That I finally forgive me

But, I learnt to love you less
but then I couldn’t seem to stop
I learnt to love you less
but then I couldn’t seem to stop

Well fuck you, I don’t need you,
I never loved you anyway
Fuck this, I don’t need this,
I love you, please stay
Fuck you, I don’t need you,
I never loved you anyway
Fuck this, I don’t need this,
I love you, please stay

I love you, please stay
Track Name: Lost In Conversation
Lost in conversation with
strangers on the flight
As it throws itself towards me
I’ll wait so patiently for you to arrive
I’ll have my heart painted on my sleeve

I’ll become
The man you always thought I would be
Wasting hours
Content with the way you looked at me

We slept in separate beds that night
And the day died so young
You walked around your house for hours
I woke, and laid waiting for the day

But not for you
It’s easy to fall back to your sleep
You close your eyes
And fall through the sheets, back to your dreams

We were lost in conversation
Track Name: Faux-Constellations
When you were sat with your glass of wine
Both hands raised to the sky
With the silhouette of Eva Braun
From the distant streetlights on the other side of town
You waved your arm
Traced shapes in the stars
Faux-constellations of things you saw
That would disappear if you stopped looking any more

I try to tell you what I wanted to say
Before you sleep or you leave
The world could keep you for a long time
A long, long time
And so could I

I met a girl like you today.
She had her hair like yours, and she dressed the same
I fell in love all over again
I would wash her clothes, I would meet her friends
She thought it through,
said “My stars were true,
They said I would meet you today,
I’m not ready for my life to change”

I try to tell you what I wanted to say
Before you sleep or you leave
The world could keep you for a long time
A long, long time
And so will I

So will I
Track Name: Send Me To The Stars
I wanted to get hit by your car
Want it to take my knees and send me to the stars
It never quite happened how I wanted it to
Sometimes life is cruel

I only wrote you songs so I could tell
you everything that I wanted to yell
They were all about how much I loved you
None of them were true

I can’t find any water down this well
I made you look with me and we fell
Now I can’t find anyone who I prefer to you
So I guess you’ll have to do
