  1. Keeping Me Awake

    Keeping Me Awake

    Summer, it came
    like a light across the highlands
    and we laid it down.
    You wore a dress
    made of light from the islands
    and we sent postcards home.

    In dying light
    this was not to be forgotten
    .cause we are the chosen few.
    Into the sea with the touch of softest cotton
    Beneath this angel moon
    Its been keeping me awake

    Leaving this behind was my first mistake
    and I’m not so strong
    to be satisfied by all the things I’ve done
    and the things it threw away.

    You wrote your name
    as we lay among the heather.
    What you left behind
    Following paths that would lead us both together
    Let us lose our minds
    Its been keeping me awake

    Leaving this behind was my first mistake
    and I’m not so strong
    to be satisfied by all the things I’ve done
    by the things it threw away.

    Summer, it fell
    and it coursed across the highlands
    and so quickly gone.
    Your faded dress for years now tied away and silent
    and the night’s late lullaby
    has been keeping me awake.

    Leaving this behind was my first mistake
    and I’m not so strong
    to be satisfied by all the things I’ve done
    by all the things it threw away.
    By all the things it threw away
    By all the things it threw away
    By all the things it threw away

  2. Caroline Avenue

    Caroline Avenue

    Things you said
    were they true?
    .cause I haven’t got a clue
    and wouldn’t know if they were not true.

    .Cause I am here, paper doll
    and I am waiting for your call
    but I won’t wait until tomorrow.
    So hard to mention
    if you’re in my shoes
    but I’m tired of riding shotgun for you

    as we glide down Caroline Avenue.
    Time will tell you
    that you’re thinking you’re right, when you are wrong.
    And I’m thinking that this evening won’t last long, no no,
    .cause I’m getting pretty tired of you waxing so inspired
    .bout the lights down Caroline Avenue.

    Serves you right
    Feel this way
    Be so clinically deranged
    that I won’t stand for all of your bullshit.
    So take your time,
    .cause we’ve got time.
    Remember, what is yours is mine
    Don’t let it slide by the wayside.

    Reeling from the tension,
    it’s all ending here
    and I’m chasing shots of whiskey
    with everclear

    as we glide down Caroline Avenue.
    Time will tell you
    that you’re thinking you’re right, when you are wrong.
    And I’m thinking that this evening won’t last long, no no,
    .cause I’m getting pretty tired of you waxing so inspired
    .bout the lights down Caroline Avenue.

    And you’re trying so hard
    but it takes more than just flipping off traffic cops
    to impress me.
    You underestimate me.

    Emptied out
    Falling free
    It will all catch up with me
    And I am in control and patient
    But I will wait .til you decide
    It’s all over for the time
    and I will stay behind .til you decide.
    Carry me .til daylight
    when your wisdom clears
    .til tomorrow finds me shoeless and jaded.

    as we glide down Caroline Avenue.
    Time will tell you
    that you’re thinking you’re right, when you are wrong.
    And I’m thinking that this evening won’t last long, no no,
    .cause I’m getting pretty tired of you waxing so inspired
    .bout the lights down Caroline Avenue.
