Track Name: Around You
Sorry to find out about it
Sorry to fall down, unstable

Someday we can stop the fighting / Someday we can make it right
In time we can end the crying / In time we will love, we might
One day we can laugh about it / One day we can talk all night
Maybe we can look back on this / Maybe I could wrap around you tight

I was about to lose my mind forever
But, in time, I put it all back together

Someday we can stop the fighting / Someday we can make it right
In time we can end the crying / In time we will love, we might
One day we can laugh about it / One day we can talk all night
Maybe we can look back on this / Maybe I could wrap around you tight

Around you, around you / Maybe I could wrap around you tight
Around you, around you / Maybe I could wrap around you tight

Maybe I could wrap around you tight

Around you, around you / Maybe I could wrap around you tight
Around you, around you / Maybe I could wrap around you tight
Around you, around you / Maybe I could wrap around you tight
Around you, around you / Maybe I could wrap around you tight
Track Name: Blue Skies
Blue skies / Brown horizons
If this is the city of angels / Then why have we chosen to settle in hell
Another shooting and a four-alarm fire
Porcelain diet to a body that's good enough to sell

All the swimming pools and movie stars
Couldn't lure me away from where you are
Driving limousines to the movie screens
Airbrushed hopefuls posing for magazines, underneath

Blue skies / Brown horizons
If this is the city of angels / Then why have we chosen to settle in hell
Any day it could explode into riots
Sending a shockwave from South Central to Mississauga

All those swimming pools and movie stars
Will dry up with the valley aqueduct
Driving limousines leaking gasoline
Airbrushed hopefuls shooting pornography, underneath

Buildings racing toward the city lines
Acid raining downward from the skies

LAX invites another flight
Actors, immigrants, and business types
Lusting for a piece of coastal life
California cornflake paradise

You talk, you talk, climb to the top with lies, all lies
The hills alight, a fire fight, you run for your life

Skyline fires turn the night to day
We can't make you leave but you can't stay

Handbag Shih Tzus cruise Rodeo Drive
Horowitz can't hear the farmer's cries
Acid's raining downward from the sky
Buildings race toward the city lines

Buildings racing past the
Buildings sprawling past the
Buildings creeping toward the

Blue skies / Brown horizons
Track Name: Old Hearts
Don’t go, come on back and take me with you
Not sure of where you’re going and where you’re gonna be
I know it’s not forever just for now but
Say so, you never know, you never know

Don’t wait, it won’t be long before I follow
Your name, engraved upon the stone above your head
You’ll stay, underground and waiting for me
That day’s not far away, not far away

Old hearts, unpack your bags, you’re never leaving
Under stars, waking up to sleep again
Don’t ever leave, we’re near the end

Your eyes are painted on the ghost that haunts me
You’re right that I’m not ready for the other side
Don’t cry, I’m holding on for just tomorrow
In time, you’re ever mine, you’re ever mine, and

Old hearts, unpack your bags, you’re never leaving
Under stars, waking up to sleep again
Don’t ever leave, we’re near the end

Old hearts, unpack your bags, you’re never leaving
Under stars, waking up to sleep again
Don’t ever leave, we’re near the end
Track Name: On The Radio
I can hear the sound of you jetting
I can see the sun as it’s setting
But I know that I’m never letting go of you

I’d be lying if I said I’m betting
That you’d be with me at the wedding
Still I know that I’m never getting over you

You’re a song on the radio / singing me back to sleep, and
You’re talk on the telephone / telling me tales of a thousand things
You’re a song on the radio / singing me back to sleep, and
You’re stuck on the stereo / making me wake from a thousand dreams

I can hardly believe that it’s ending
We’re both having a hard time accepting
Still I know that I’ll be attempting without you

I’ll be thinking of you every morning
‘till the sun goes down in the evening
I’ll keep holding on to the memory left of you

You’re a song on the radio / singing me back to sleep, and
You’re talk on the telephone / telling me tales of a thousand things
You’re a song on the radio / singing me back to sleep, and
You’re voice on the video / making me wake from a thousand dreams

I believed in us at the beginning
And you know that I’m unrelenting
But I feel that everything’s breaking into two

Is it mad to think that you’re getting
All the letters that I keep on sending
It’s a sign that I’m not forgetting me and you

You’re a song on the radio / singing me back to sleep, and
You’re talk on the telephone / telling me tales of a thousand things
You’re a song on the radio / singing me back to sleep, and
You’re long gone but you never know / you could be there, still thinking of me
Track Name: World War Z
Why you looking past my eyes?
Why you looking past my eyes?
Paris is calling and Beijing is falling
London slips away

Why you falling for these lies?
Why you falling for these lies?
New York is breaking and my heart is aching
Darkness fades to grey

Well, don’t worry darling, we’re gonna find a way to survive
We’re gonna find a way to make it out of this town alive

We can avert this disaster
If we can put out the fire
We can avert this disaster
We can make it out of this town alive

We could live in the forest – learn to hunt and to forage
We could live so peacefully in a cabin up north where no one would ever hear

We can avert this disaster
If we can put out the fire
We can avert this disaster
We can make it out of this town alive

Why are you looking past my eyes?
Paris is calling and Beijing is falling
Why are you looking past my eyes?
New York is breaking and my heart is aching
Why are you looking past my eyes?
Paris is calling and Beijing is falling
Why are you looking past my eyes?
London slips away
Track Name: Interlude
By the way, you can't change me
I'm a lot like you when you were seventeen
By the way, you can't tame me
I go out of my way just to see you fallin'
Track Name: Timebomb
It’s the topline of a lifetime
Everyday we stretch the limit
Of energy / irony / you and me
Take me downtown
Affluence spreads / without consequence
But it feels wrong, like a timebomb

Take a look at what you thought you wanted
Do you see where you went wrong?
Turn back the clock and do it over
Instead of designing a timebomb

It’s a new day; brings a heartache
We never even took a minute
But anyway / who’s to say / brand new day
Pushin’ onward
Gentrify / socialite / suicide
But it feels wrong, like a timebomb

Take a look at what you thought you wanted
Do you see where you went wrong?
Turn back the clock and do it over
Instead of desigining a timebomb

It’s the topline of a lifetime
But it feels wrong, like a timebomb
Track Name: Girl By My Side
Pulling in the driveway in the dead of the night
Calling to my baby to come out for a drive
Passing through the neon-coloured city lights
Rolling ‘round the corner and we’re out of sight tonight

Flying down the freeway at the speed of sound
Past the city limits so we’ll never be found
Glancing in the rear view as I’m holding your hand
We’re never going back there, never turning around tonight

You and I
A girl and a guy
Even if we never make it
There’s a chance so we should take it anyway
If you’re right
This’ll take all night
And no matter what tonight brings
You and I will be all right tomorrow

Winding through the traffic, we keep going for miles
Pull over to the shoulder and we’ll rest for a while
Money in my pocket and a girl by my side
Doesn’t matter if we make it, just as long as we tried tonight

And I wanted to go fast / But you wanted the feeling to last
Yeah, you wanted to go slow / Making our way back home
Track Name: Call And Answer
The daylight fades so fast
And midnight comes to pass
By morning, winter's here
And summer disappears

I never thought I’d see the day
When all illusions slipped away
No man to answer the call
My past, my future, my fault

Call and answer / You said you ran out of time
Call and answer / You thought you’d tried
All the answers that you’d set out to find
Now or never

The leaves fall, settling in the snow
Unraveling secrets down below
The sky turns black then fades
And memory’s all that remains

Call and answer / You said you ran out of time
Call and answer / You thought you’d tried
All the answers that you’d set out to find
Now or never

You stay the same, or make the change
You never know what you’ll find

Call and answer

You stay the same, or make the change
You never know what you’ll find
Track Name: North Wind
That's how it goes
You take one last good look in the bathroom mirror before the show
That's how it goes
Breath mint, time check, wallet and keys / time to leave everything you know
That's how it goes

The summer sunshine was not enough to make you want to stay
The north wind, to spite me, it picked you up and carried you away

That's how it goes
If you could choose only one thing to take down south with you when you go
That's how it goes
Make it this song to remind you of just how strong the north wind can blow
That's how it goes

The summer sunshine was not enough to make you want to stay
The North wind, to spite me, it picked you up and carried you away
Winter weekends without you near will never feel the same
The distance between us is not so great it can’t be bridged by plane
Track Name: Republic Of Sunshine
So there you are
Like a freshly fallen star
Too hot to touch
Too bright to stare
I could try, but do I dare?

I’ll roll up my sleeve so you can’t see my heart
Though it’s long since stopped beating right from the start
Of your lashy eyelashes right to the tip of your fingers

I’ll write you up with a glowing citation
And I’ll mail it off to the United Nations
Who’ll appoint you the Queen of the three most beautiful stations

The Republic of Sunshine, the Kingdom of Sky
And these United States of the Clouds That Float By
So that I can live under your rule forever and ever

So there you are
Like a freshly fallen star
Too hot to touch
Too bright to stare
