Track Name: Spiral
Keeping photographs, though I know I should
Burn them all 'cause it does no good
Staring at your smile all day
Only amplifies my fragile state
And I just can't find the reasons to explain
Why my mind just circles back again

Every time you walk away
I start to slide with every day
I spiral out of control
Every time you say goodbye
My head's a mess, I just won't lie
I spiral out of control

See the same old faces everyday
Drinking coffee in the same cafe
Where we would go to talk all night
The people ask me now if I'm alright
So I just lie and tell them I'm okay
But in my mind, I'm a million miles away

Repeat Chorus

I'm like a lost dog looking for a home
A lone star in the midnight sky alone
And though I know you're well and truly gone
It don't make it easier
Lord, I wish it was easier
To just move on

Repeat Chorus
Track Name: Can't See The Light
Drink a glass half full to a heart half empty
Are we too far gone or just about to fade
Looking back there were signs a plenty
Looking forward are we too late to save

Can we work it out baby
Tell me if everything will be alright
'Cause I just can't see the light

Like the morning sun will we rise tomorrow
Like the midnight stars will we light up the sky
Our fragile hearts have had their taste of sorrow
Will the taste still linger or will it soon subside

Repeat Chorus

I'm done waiting for so long
If we're through then baby won’t you set me free
The time when you used to feel like home
Is a distant memory [hold on F] Eb
(That’s why I’m asking)

Can we work it out baby
Tell me if everything will be alright
'Cause I just can't see the light
Can we work it out baby
Tell me if everything will be alright
'Cause I just can't see
I still can’t see
No, I just can’t see the light
Track Name: Mess I'm In
Last night, words were said
You mentioned love and then falling apart all in one breath
I wish you would make your mind up and choose
'Cause if you don't want me around
Then baby, stop lighting my fuse

I'm in two minds to stay
But in no shape to drive away
I know two wrongs don't make it right
So I just won't say
Girl you've been at it again
Got my heart in a spin
Reeling from the mess I'm in The reason for the mess I'm in

Last night blood was spilled
Tongue tied and twisted
But still enough venom to kill
I wish you would open your eyes and see That if you don't want me around
Then baby try setting me free

Repeat Chorus

Oh, your lies leave me unstable
That's what they do
I hope you realise when you're able
What you put me through

Repeat Chorus
Track Name: Hummingbird
There's a hummingbird singing in the old oak tree
Where we used to run and play
Every night I sit and listen from my window sill
To hear what song she brings today
The swing I pushed you on
The fragile branch it dangled from
Has long since disappeared
But the memory locked away inside of me
Comes alive each time I hear

Her sing a song
And she sings at the top of her lungs

The girl I've always loved
Who had to go and find herself
Has now come to realise
All the shiny things won't replace the joy it brings
When the hummingbird flies by

To sing a song
That she sings at the top of her lungs

Is it wrong to assume that with all its imperfections
Love can conquer and consume
Is it wrong to assume that even with her broken wing
The hummingbird still can sing in perfect tune

Little hummingbird perched upon my window sill
Tells me my love has arrived
So I won't hesitate
Rush to meet her at the gate
With all my feelings brought to life

We'll sing her song
And we'll sing at the top of our lungs

There's a hummingbird singing in the old oak tree
Where we used to run and play
