Track Name: Suntanned Soul (Demostration Recording)
I saw the light but missed the point
When we were over come
And falling for the yellow boys
It took us thirty thousand days
Before we landed on the sun
And got blinded by the truth

I never worked so hard, I never
Never worked so hard
Never gonna get it
Grow up boy, with sun tanned soul

Staring at defeat again
We should have seen the signs
And listened to the yellow boys
It’s not written in the stars
It’s there upon our hearts
But they never saw the light on day

I never cried so hard, I never
Never cried so hard
Never gonna get it
Grow up boy, with sun tanned soul

[instrumental]

You’ll find me coming back for more
Until the sun burns out
And then we will be born again
So after thirty thousand days
If it takes a million more
It will be worth it to be home again

I never loved so hard, I never
Never loved so hard
Never gonna get it
Grow up boy, with sun tanned soul
Track Name: The Crush (Demostration Recording)
Sleep tight under Bakelite
Feels right on your skin tonight
We fall and we burn alive
Feel small, feel it all arrive
Bee stings
Sown in
To us
All hail the crush
Sun sets behind audio tapes
Love tries to conceal the shakes
Night comes over Astroturf
God knows Brian never surfed
Bee stings
Sown in
To us
All hail the crush
Come over whelmed into dust
The fear and the rust is ours
Hairs stand on the back of your neck
The Hesperus wreck
The price that you pay
Forever a day
Your tears run away
Something wicked this way comes
Cool memories everyone
Live hyperreality
Take in all the scenery
Bee stings
Sown in
To us
All hail the…
Bee stings
Sown in
To us
All hail the crush
Track Name: Cosmology & Longing (Demostration Recording)
The things he said that broke your heart
Will cause us to go back and start again
My only friend
Wicked thoughts and evil deeds
Will never satisfy his needs
Alone when you are not at home

You are like a star
I'll build myself a rocket ship
And fire it up into your iridescent light
A light that burns so bright
Our tears are stuff as dreams are made
The cosmos is an early grave tonight

Words won't heal the wounds he made
Your stitches torn apart and frayed
Dissolve your scant resolve
Fingers can't recall the tunes
That once filled all these little rooms
With hope do you remember hope?

Chorus

No one can hear you cry in outer space
Ma, look at me now
Look at me go

The light from you will take an age
To reach the hearts and brains of those
Who care when you're not there
You went super nova weeks ago
It will be years before we know
Or understand

Chorus
Track Name: Saving Grace
You’re born out of my soul
Out of my dreams, out of my mind
You go where I can’t go
Into my eyes, on your way to my heart
You fall into my arms
At least in my dreams, as strange as it seems
Oh please
One of these days
One of these days
My saving grace

When you wake does sunlight hurt your eyes
Do you hesitate to break your dream? Alright
Do you remember what he said
Before he took his shoes from under your bed
And when you wake does sunlight hurt your eyes

Your skin feeds my desire
Drinks all my tears, consumes all my day
The air that separates us
Is touched by your hands, is moved at the sight
Breath out then breath you in
I’ve come to this place to savour your face
Oh please
One of these days
One of these days
My saving grace

When you wake does sunlight hurt your eyes
Do you hesitate to break your dream? Alright
Do you remember what he said
Before he took his shoes from under your bed
And when you wake does sunlight hurt your eyes
Track Name: Golden Skin
You used to be so beautiful
On golden skin
Please let me in
It takes a second, love, to say goodbye
Forever then, to say hello again

Tell me how you feel
Does it make you reel?
