The Dance 05:09
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

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

Slumber 05:08
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
