Track Name: The Dance
in the twilight
i go out and talk about them
in the twilight
we walk the roads thinking of ghosts and their half-closed eyes

there’s a dance tonight
and everyone knows about it
in the sound tonight
their shadows waltz and waltz around it

people say that we shouldn’t talk the way we talk
we’ll only end up scared
“lights out now babies, don’t let me find you out
with the ghosts tonight
don’t let me find you out with the ghosts tonight
in the twilight”

when they come back
they don’t want to talk about it
but in the fading light
they stay awake and sing strange little songs about themselves

people say that we shouldn’t talk the way we talk
we’ll only end up scared
eyes closed, maybe we’ll sleep now we’re safe and sound in the house tonight
now that we’re safe and sound in the house tonight
Track Name: Stacks, Mountains
You come to me when your nights don't seem to end
Come to me when your fire has been spent
come to me when you're written out
Come to me when the house blows down
Come to me when there's no one left in town
And you want me to be there

These are the walls of a broken house
These are the lies you told to get me out
Now we pass each other by
Sails silent at night

Come to me when your house burns down
Come to me when you're buried in the ground
And you want me to be free
Track Name: Slumber
darling let’s never go to sleep
this night is the last of the summer
darling let’s never go to sleep
don’t let the dark pull you under

and i listen
and i write
and i wonder
and i fight

darling let’s never go to sleep
our dreams are all bruises and thunder
the sun is caught up in its travelling plans
this is the last night of the summer

and i whisper
and i write
and i wander
through the night

to the sound of slumber

and i listen
to the tides
of your breathing
by my side

the sound of slumber
