Track Name: You Wish You Were Here
Broke down on a freezing foreign pavement, still unsure of where we’ll leave this doubt. Could it be more than I am meant to climb, I’m finding out. These dulcet tones flying ‘round, seduce me as I hit the ground.

Well it’s all right now; all I hope is all I have to say.

You’re right, I’m so fearful of debating whether or not I’ll ever leave this cloud. What I need right now is a home from home, we’re miles out. But I mess it up, let you down. Between the lines is where I’m found.

But it’s all right now; all I hope and all I have to save is this, now.
Track Name: Alright, Okay
Home. To face unopened letters that define us. All you never knew is all I have. Bitter prose and metaphors; reminders of all it ever was: Awry.

So deny another memory to stifle any word of truth. I cannot remember when I could take a compliment, without the feeling that I’ll mess it up again.

I don’t think though. God damn it! I never knew it could be so derisory, whilst painful.

I’ve wasted my potential. When? I’m not sure but I’m tired and mispent.
I faltered by design, but you would rather blame it on your friends.
And I’ve done most anything to circumvent the world around my neck, as it’s useless to implode.
I’ve wasted my potential. When? I’m not sure but I’m tired and mispent.
I falter by design, but go ahead blame it on your friends.
And I’ve done most anything to circumvent the world around my neck, as it’s useless to implode.
Track Name: Just So You Know I lost My Balance
It's raining here tonight, perfect for a fight, but tomorrow will be gone and we'll be by ourselves and I think of all the opportunities to speak that passed us by, but tomorrow will be fine, or will it.

Miles away, still your here beside me. I cannot believe.

Take the time to get it right, because every word that we speak tonight, could become the last they knew. The silence irrevocable without you.

I suggest as we're sitting down and lucid, we could exclaim our fears to truly be honest, in an attempt to reconcile the wrong. As it can't be that hard and we owe it to each other.

Miles away, still your here beside me. I cannot believe.

Track Name: I Feel Like Steven Glansberg (Brightr Covering Veto)
I can't live up to your expectations, you say you cleaned yourself up when you threw me in the dirt. Dowsed in double standards you drown me. Break my back and bring me to my knees, things will never be the same since you got the best of me, the best of me.

But I hope that things will change eventually. I hope, I hope, I hope, eventually. Things are bound to get easier, this regressions not me. And honestly, honestly, I'm coming out as a better me.

It's my life, it's my call I don't need your crutches to stand tall. I brought home the battle but I'll win the war. Tell me something I don't know, your lack of common sense is wearing thin I hope that the winds change, I hope they change for the better.

But I know that things will change eventually. I know, I know, I know, eventually. Things are bound to get easier, this regressions not me. And honestly, honestly, I'm coming out as a better me.

You say you cleaned yourself up, dowsed in double standards you drown me. You say you cleaned yourself up, dowsed in double standards you drown me. You say you cleaned yourself up, dowsed in double standards you drown me. You say you cleaned yourself up.

Things are bound to get easier, this regressions not me. And honestly, honestly, I'm coming out as a better me. I'm coming out as a better me. I'm coming out as a better me.

Let me tell you a story about the life I made
It started back in 1948 I was a boy lost at war
Left school at eleven
Was never made for education
I rolled up my sleeves and just got on with it

But you saved me
From the mess I'd be
The one who kept the demons in my mind at bay
The one who moved up north to start a family
You were 18 regardless of the man I'd turn out to be
I asked your hand and you took a chance on me
You said you would marry me

10 years, 6 kids and a place to call home
A wife that I could depend on
In the town that I grew up in
This life was ours for the taking
I think, I came out this one swinging

But you saved me
From the mess I'd be
The one who kept the demons in my mind at bay
The one who moved up north to start a family
You were 18, regardless of the man I'd turn out to be
I asked your hand and you took a chance on me
You said you would marry me

But in 9 years I started to realise my worst fears, I was losing you to dementia
I wish I could have saved you
And dear, I know that it sounds selfish
But I wish that I could have died first, cause I can't live withou you
And love was never just a word, to us
And love was never just a word
And love was never just a word, to us
And love was never just a word
And love was never just a word, to us
And love was never just a word
And love was never just a word, to us
And love was never just a word
But you saved me
But you saved me
From the mess I'd be
Track Name: Veto - Red Granite
The subject of conversation is entirely up to you,
I'll happily float in silence and we'll burn into
Sun dried, sun died tan lines will fade away but I won't even out without you,

Photographic evidence,
I don't need to understand everything you meant
When you think about it
Don't think about it
I'm only seasons away

We'll take the long way home

Distort my vision, Hello chlorine eyes
I've got cold feet from this height
If you jump then I will, what are the odds?
Drown in vitamin D, you'll float beside me

You never said goodbye,
I get it, I understand why
When you think about it
Don't think about it
Just think about it
I'm only seasons away

I want you to peel away my skin where the sun has left his hand print
Track Name: Veto - Sleight of Hand (Veto Covering Brightr)
Straight lines make emotionless designs. Come on where’s the sense in breathing when you lack the will to fight. Fame? I don’t know, I can’t promise anything as the best I have is riding on the hope that we can watch it start again.

We are shuffling the packLike Darwin ortiz, aiming to deceive; you’ll never bring us down again.
We are hiding in the back with empty faces quiet and discreet; you’ll never see it coming.

Hearsay, there really wouldn’t be a scene without it. Too honest, soo unique. A phase to feel important in. All I know is what it is to me, a rotten fountain of vilest critique, they’d rather see you stumbling.
