Light Of Day 04:42
LIGHT OF DAY You’re my rock You’re my rock You’re my rock But you do not know it yet In the dark In the dark In the dark I kiss you to forget CHORUS All the battles I have fought From the trenches of my heart Oh the one that got away Stole the light of day Oh the light of day The light of day Oh the light of day You’re my rock You’re my rock You’re my rock But now I’m full of fire So kill the light Kill the light Kill the light Along with my desire CHORUS From the province I can smell the scent of blood Taste it in the air Oh the harbinger Fight me take my life For I’ve lived it full and fierce But you won’t catch me For love wins over fear Love wins over fear CHORUS

HEALED OF YOU I cannot feel your love anymore I cannot feel your touch or my feet on the floor I was not ready to let go of your hand Oh your hand CHORUS Where did it go? To the stars to the moon? I can’t touch it I cannot feel you Where did it go? That love that you told me was so true? When will I be healed? Oh when will I be healed of you…? There was invisible space between What we were and what we could’ve been Just let me keep your arms so they’ll rock me to sleep Oh just sleep… CHORUS And now I wash the floors From where you stood before you broke my chest But every single night I wear the dirt from ‘neath both your shoes And I howl into the light Where did it go? To the stars to the moon? Where did it go? To the stars to the moon? CHORUS

I AM A FUCKING UNICORN My whole life I thought I was a horse A horse a horse I thought I was of course Strong and lean and a running machine But you could pass by me and I would not be seen Then one morn I awoke And decided then and there I would not be a horse no more And so I told my friends that… CHORUS I am a fucking unicorn I fart glitter and sparkles from my bum And just in case you did not hear me I…I…I am a fucking unicorn! I arose from the darkness and rode right through the storm This time I had a shiny silver horn My whole life I’ve been waiting for this day When I could shit rainbows instead of just eat hay So to anyone who doubted me This is not a disguise You used to look right through me But now I burn your eyes CHORUS Why does this make me feel so much better? I’m walking on air, I’m magic, I’m floating And I think you know it I think you know that there’s something about me Something that I want to show ‘Cos I’m horny NO! Not like that! Well sometimes I am But not just right now But there’s a fucking magic horn on my head Did you hear what I said? THERE’S A HORN ON MY HEAD! I might look like a rainbow I might look like a cupcake I might look pretty fab But if you cross me I’ll turn you into a kebab I might look like a rainbow I might look like a cupcake I might look pretty fab But if you cross me I’ll turn you into a kebab CHORUS

Time 04:13
TIME I’ll hold your heart lightly my friend I know that it’s sunk and then surfaced again But it’s buoyant and filled with the love of five good men I know at times it’s been very hard But you’ve chosen to smile and you’ve chosen to laugh And we chose to dance for a moment in the dark CHORUS Oh but it’s time Freeze framing moments in stillness But the more that I squeeze I can feel this slip away Oh but it’s time that I must let go and allow it to grow from a seed to a flower into something unknown but not in a hour and maybe the petals will drown in a shower I don’t know Oh but time… I’ll hold your heart lightly my friend I’ll build it a home with the words that I’ve penned And mellifluous melodies coming round the bend It’ll have it’s own opus A lightening choral And the birds sing bel canto And I will conduct from the park And I hope that you’ll hear me I hope that you’ll hear me wherever you are CHORUS Oh but it’s time Freeze framing moments in stillness But the more that I squeeze I can feel this slip away Oh but it’s time that I must let go and allow it to grow from a seed to a flower into something unknown but not in a hour and maybe the petals will drown in a shower and maybe you’ll hate me but at least we devoured each other and felt it for even a moment and I do not care if you think I stole it for it was all worth it and I’ve no intention of turning my back on divine intervention Oh but it’s time… Time…

BROKEN ROMANTICS UNITE just keep on moving one foot then the other shuffle to the door my somerset st dancer he might never know the beautiful mess that's between your ears the somerset st best CHORUS broken romantics unite and howl for the lost love we send to the sky now it's in the dark that we store our light if but a spark it could save a life... just keep on singing one note than another i do not care what they sound like with each other breathe in the aloneness breathe in all the space and know, know that i love you my somerset st nutcase CHORUS i have been patient i have been kind i have been everything you like i have been here i have been there i have been god damn everywhere i have been love i have been love etc... we are the broken, broken romantics our heart is shattered but we’ll keep on standing we are not perfect a little bit cracked but we’ll keep on loving and never look back CHORUS
