Track Name: Comprende!
Tell me something out of kindness

Uncover a glimmer of weakness

I can’t help but remember

A time when you were more fragile

Its funny how (this su-ummer)

This summer can be traced

Back to a handful of mistakes

Connected decisions and doubts

I’ve compiled a list

Of the things holding you back

Holding you back

Holding you back (x2)

Memories fade and stutter like a flipbook

Single frames and clippings in a notebook

Smiling

I remember when it was

Before the colours drained

And it’s funny how

This summer can

Be traced back to a handful of decisions

Mistakes and doubts

I’ve compiled a list

Of the things holding you back

Holding you back

Holding you back (x2)

White noise and static interferes with our lives

Count back from ten

Inhale and exhale

Realise that this is turning inside out (we were happy)

Remember when, remember when we were happy

Remember when, remember when we were happy

Imagine we were happy

Trace it right back, trace it right back, I will

Trace it right back, trace it right back, If you’ll (etc)

Please try to see the sense in this my darling

Count back from ten

Inhale and exhale

Realise we could be happy

Remember when, remember when we were happy

Remember when, remember when we were happy

Imagine we were happy

Track Name: Whiskey and Water
Let’s start today

Mix whiskey with water

Find out how

To waste a weekend

Staying awake in the back of this vehicle

Rectangular views from the back of this car

Watching lines roll by

Steady pulse of the streetlights

We’re chasing the distance

A place to aim for

You always said

Things are cyclical

Oncoming lights seem twice as fast

You always said it’s relative

Watching them pass

Trails from headlights

It’s easy to forget we’re moving

Dead ends

And wrongs turns

And loose ends

And false starts
