Track Name: Come Home
Come Home
Written by Andrew Taylor
You told me not to think aloud
Look after myself and try to be home soon
Take a leaf out of your book
Taking my time and lie if I had to
Come home, Come home

Testing what you could recall
Finding your feet, never in doubt of
Failing at the things you love
Forever in fear of facing the climb down
Come home, come home

Where are you to go after this, trying to move on
Where are you to go, after this, trying to move on

Come home, Come home
Come home, Come home
Track Name: When It Starts
When It Starts
Written by Andrew Taylor

When it always starts, waiting till we part
Going on in my head, you’re there

Taking over mind, thoughts are in decline
Overboard, take me as I am

Feelings incomplete, dying on your feet
Never them, connecting dots again

I’ll go, go anywhere with you
I’ll go, go anywhere with you
I’ll go, go anywhere with you
I’ll go, go anywhere with you

When it always ends, waiting time sets in
Going on, in my head you’re there
Track Name: Halfway Round Again
Halfway Round Again
Written by Andrew Taylor
Why’d you want to be hiding today?
Why’s it always so hard for you stay?
It wouldn’t hurt you to guess what I want
It wouldn’t take you a long time to run

Why’s it always much harder for you?
I know what that’s like, I know what that’s like
Did you really have to stop trying too?
I know what that’s like, I know what that’s like

Where’s the love that you’re locking away?
Where’s the words that you want me to say?
It’d help if you guessed what I thought
Then I wouldn’t be expected to talk

Why’s it always much harder for you?
I know what that’s like, I know what that’s like
Did you really have to stop trying too?
I know what that’s like, I know what that’s like
I’d like to meet you when we’re halfway round again (x4)
Track Name: Some People
Some People
Written by Alastair Taylor

Some people, they don’t go home
Some people, they stay too long
They never believe you when it’s time to go
They’re always too slow

Some people, they tell you lies
Some people still act surprised
When they tell you stories but you never laugh
Too clever by half

Believe what they say and you’ll feel better
Pack your things and hop aboard
Don’t ever look back, it’s all behind now
You don’t need them anymore
Track Name: Jump Start
Jump Start
Written by Andrew Taylor

I’m all out of plans in my diary
I’ll sit on my hands in the same old way

I don’t mind what you tell me, I won’t take it to heart
It’s alright if you blame me, I just jumped at the start

Feelings never change even if they should
Knowing they’ll remain, if you only could

I don’t mind what you tell me, I won’t take it to heart
It’s alright if you blame me, I just jumped at the start

I don’t mind what you tell me, I won’t take it to heart
It’s alright if you blame me, I just jumped at the start
Track Name: Butterfly
Butterfly
Written by Andrew Taylor

I won’t know until it’s there
I don’t plan to hide
And when I find where to go
I won’t look behind

The grass has grown around your feet
The time has almost gone
You stand still while they all pass
You have lost your will

Maybe it’s only the timing that’s wrong
Butterfly

Easy done, overblown
I will help you try
To take the path, the one you need
I will shine the light

Maybe it’s only the timing that’s wrong
Butterfly
Track Name: Style
Style
Written by Andrew Taylor

So wake up and start again if you know I need you
So what if and when again if you want I need to
Maybe the time is now, once in a while
Take up the chance and see
And change your style

So face up and start your brain if you know it’s in there
I won’t laugh and cry again, if you want I’ll be there
Maybe the time is now, once in a while
Take up the chance and see
And change your style

Why do you never finish what you start?
Why waste your time instead of following your heart

So wake up and start again if you know I need you
So what if and when again, if you want I need to
Track Name: Rainbows
Rainbows
Written by Andrew Taylor

I can’t stop chasing my tail, I don’t know what it means
I always seem destined to fail reaching out for my dreams
You’re always ready to speak even when you’re not asked
The future can’t really be bleak as things in the past
When I don’t know what to do, I listen to you

Maybe the summer ahead will lighten my mood
I always start dragging you down but you knew I would
Lately there’s things on my mind that spiral away
And nothing I try seems to work and nothing is great
When I don’t know what to do, I listen to you


When I don’t know what to do, I listen to you
Track Name: Wishing
Wishing
Written by Andrew Taylor

You say you have my trust
Then say it’s not enough
Half the time I’m wrong but then I’m right
Half the time you won’t but then you might
Stop wishing, you won’t have your life your way

You say you’re insecure
You fake being sure
Half the time you’re there you want away
Half the time it’s clear but turns opaque
Stop wishing, you won’t have your life your way

Half the time I’m wrong but then I’m right
Half the time you won’t but then you might
Stop wishing, you won’t have your life your way
Stop wishing, you won’t have your life your way
Track Name: It's My Life (not ours)
It’s My Life (Not Ours)
Written by Alastair Taylor

What are you doing coming round here unannounced?
I need some time all by myself
Need to recover from the things I think I heard
Or is it only in my head?
Where are you going turn around and listen up
Well did you hear a word I said?
Your mouth looks happy but your eyes don’t hide the truth
That you still wish that I was dead

‘Cause it’s not ours
It’s my life, not ours
It’s my life, not ours
It’s my life, not ours
Should it feel this good, not ours
Should it be so good all the time?

My time’s a wasting, not got long before I go
I need to pack up all my things
I’ve checked the oil and tyre pressure too
But where I’m going I don’t know
Track Name: Carry Me Home
Carry Me Home
Written by Andrew Taylor

I wish the sun would go down before
You notice the sound
It’s not the time to make peace in your book
I know that now

Wait here to lighten my load
Or carry me home
Wait here to lighten my load
Or carry me home

Words end, just close all your thoughts to the crowd
Outside it’s bright

Wait here to lighten my load
Or carry me home
Wait here to lighten my load
Or carry me home
