Track Name: I'm Not There
Take the elevator up to the sky
Not where angels play but where people try
Work all day for their slice of pie
And wait for the weekend

It’s getting late on Friday night
We choke on cigarettes and wasted time
I see a pretty girl with wandering eyes
But I’m just lost in my own mind

I dream of 1965
where the flashing chimes of freedom chimed but
I’m not there

I’m lit up and I’m untied
And you pirouette and then you slide
Into my arms, into my mind
I’ve got love in my heart it’s not just in my eyes

I see the elevator up in the sky
Not where angels play but where people try
Work all day while they’re in their prime
But it’s no place for you and I

Dream of 1965
where the flashing chimes of freedom chimed but
I’m not there

We're not there
Track Name: Wake Up (Don't Settle)
Wake up now you’re getting old
Wake up now your fields are sewn
Wake up now and taste the smoke
Wake up before your fire’s cold

Wake up now and hear the call
Wake up now before it’s gone
Wake up now and have it all
Wake up before your fire’s cold

Too old to run, but we’re far too young
To settle
Too old to run, too young
To settle down

Wake Up! Wake Up! Wake Up! Wake Up!
Track Name: Way Around
Here we go, outta luck outta touch on our own
Here we go, outta sight outta mind all alone
And I know you know your way around
But I don’t just follow any crowd

Show me, show me the way around

Here we go, turning tears into fires as we roam
Here we go, will our nights turn to years on the road
If we’re broke our heads up in the clouds
and we’re only sure of all our doubts

Show me, show me the way around

Don’t hold me down, let me try
Break on through the doubtless sky
Chase a dream, I don’t know where
I don’t know how, I’ll get there

And I hope we’ll fight another round
And we’ll grow not tired of being loud

Show me, show me the way around
Track Name: Constant Sun
I’m tired of dreaming
I’m tired of sleeping in
I’m tired of what we’ve been through
But I’m never tired of you

I will love you in spite of it all
I will love you in spite of it all
You gave me hope when I swore it was gone
You’re my constant sun

Your shine never fading
Your smile it pulls me in
And time is ageing
But my love is blind for you

I will love you in spite of it all
I will love you in spite of it all
You gave me hope when I swore it was gone
You’re my constant sun
Track Name: Chapters
I know I’m cynical cos’ dreamers often lie
But I am just a fool when I look into your eyes
I may never shake these tricks my mind would play
But you’re swimming in my soul and I don’t worry anymore

I don’t, I don’t, I don’t, I don’t, I don’t worry anymore

I may be reckless, I don’t mean to be unkind
And I’m forgetful but you’re always on my mind
I won’t ask you to change my darling stay the same
You’re swimming in my soul and I don’t worry anymore

I don’t, I don’t, I don’t, I don’t, I don’t worry anymore

These words are hard to write and tougher still to say
But these chapters in my mind, your name’s on every page
Some say it’ll fade but I just see today
You’re swimming in my soul and I don’t worry anymore
Track Name: Rehearsed Love
I will be there darling, say you'll be there darling
I'll be waiting here for you

When all I can see are the tracks of your tears
and you're dragging me down with your same old fears
You try to be kind but you come unstuck
You're out of your mind and you're looking rough

I will be there darling, say you'll be there darling
I'll be waiting here for you

When all of it feels like a waste of time
and you don't understand what is on my mind
You try to be cool but you're blowing up
Am I just a fool for your rehearsed love?

Say you'll never change, say you'll stay the same
Say you'll never change, say you'll stay the same

I will be there darling, say you'll be there darling
I'll be waiting here for you
