In a cheap hotel on the Spanish coast We argued who loves who the most I saw a side of you I'd never seen You made a list of your fears I know you're pissed for your lost years You hate to think how differently it all could be Hold your breath And I'll hold mine There'll be No cars on the road tonight No headlights dancing through the bedroom window But the birds are singing once again Now they're Louder than they've ever been One day we'll wonder Where the time goes In my mother's house in the countryside We gathered wood to build a fire Sowed seeds on the windowsills There's so much yet to realize Like the sacredness of silent nights As the rest of the world's frozen still Hold your breath And I'll hold mine There'll be No cars on the road tonight No headlights dancing through the bedroom window But the birds are singing once again Now they're Louder than they've ever been One day we'll wonder Where the time goes Hold your breath And I'll hold mine There'll be No cars on the road tonight No headlights dancing through the bedroom window But the birds are singing once again Now they're Louder than they've ever been One day we'll wonder Where the time goes

You left just like the summer Slowly then all at once Tell me why'd it take you six months To say ‘I'm sorry I did you wrong’? And the past it is a funny thing It keeps fools like us hanging on Take this silence, take this distance It's too quiet, it's been too long But does she make you happy? That's all I want you to be Does she make you feel like a child again? Does she make you feel free? Does she feel closer than family? Does she sleep inside your bones? And does time stretch to infinity When the two of you are alone? One day I looked beside me You were already long gone All that's left is what's inside me These fading memories and some songs And the future it is a funny thing It keeps fools like us moving on Take this silence, take this distance It's too quiet, it's been too long But does she make you happy? That's all I want to know Does she make you feel like a child again? As though nothing's impossible? Are you overcome with love for her When she simply says your name? And can you tell what she's thinking of Just by looking at her face? I hope she makes you happy That's all I wanted to say I hope she makes you feel like a child again I hope she fills your oceans with waves I hope she ignites your nights with poetry I hope she lights up your days with songs I hope she paints you with all the colours Of A Thousand Setting Suns You left just like the summer Slowly then all at once

I did everything I could To try and stay you know But when a broken thing is broken, it's broken All the ways we broke You're the only boy I've ever loved With all my soul But I had to go And I left as you were sleeping I didn't even say goodbye Then I sat until almost the evening By the Avon Riverside I threw that dream catcher you gave me Into the waters and I cried And my head's still full of flowers But they've withered with Your lies I took that bus to Manchester All alone 'Cause when a broken thing is broken, it's broken All the ways we broke You're the only boy I've ever known With all my soul But I had to go And I left as you were sleeping I didn't even say goodbye Then I sat until almost the evening By the Avon Riverside I threw that dream catcher you gave me Into the waters and I cried And my head's still full of flowers But they've withered with Your lies Some nights I lay awake 'til morning light comes Creeping in But I can't say a word For fear I'll fall again Singing 'I'll see you somewhere before the end' But until then I write letters I'll never send And I left as you were sleeping I didn't even say goodbye Then I sat until almost the evening By the Avon Riverside I threw that dream catcher you gave me Into the waters and I cried And my head's still full of flowers But they've all gone And died.

Call it a nightmare, call it a dream Take it apart now, apart at the seams Something broken, something to fix Hold me I'm choking on whatever this is Take your space, I'll take my time A slave to rage, rage that blinds This is hard to say, this is hard to write A Saving Grace in the nick of time A list of how to make amends A page torn out, 'let's not let this end' Tell my mother you won't hurt me I'm wide awake now, sing me to sleep Take your space, I'll take my time A slave to rage, rage that blinds For goodness sake I thought we'd be fine A Saving Grace in the nick of time We hurt each other as we've been hurt A step mistaken, a heart misheard Take your space, I'll take my time It's not too late, you know that, right? Anyone can change if they just decide A Saving Grace in the nick of time

All boarded up, no open doors Eyes that don't meet mine no more Staring somewhere over my shoulder A face that looks so much older We talk about Where you've been and where I'll go But all the things I'd love to know I don't dare ask about I bite my tongue, I bite my lip So many words I'd love to give But they won't work it out Your voice no longer resonates And your advice, I don't think I'll take I've heard your stories too many times Now I'll write mine if you don't mind I'll write about Where I've been and where I'll go And all the things I'd love to know But don't dare ask about How I bite my tongue, I bite my lip So many words I'd love to give I'll write them all down People like seasons they change Stars they shoot and waves they break So I guess that I'll be seeing you Somewhere on the Other Side of the Moon
