Amber Green Red I’ll never understand it Just can’t find the flow All this stop and go, this stop and go Ask for no guarantees Ask for no security There never was, there never has I have to be deluded Why, to stay motivated This is a different kind of heartbreak How many kinds are there Out there Red Amber Green Red What is a rainbow Lord? A hoop for the lowly This is a different kind of heartbreak How many kinds are there Out there Red Amber Green Red

It’s Only A Love Song It’s Only A Love Song What should I write now? More sweet nothings Things would be better If the river was running She said ‘write me a love song’ ‘A cheap trick, but what the hell’ I left the room laughing She called out ‘it’s a shame that you’re so shallow’ But there are bigger questions You and me just fell into each other’s charms Like magnetism How does the world keep rolling around? It’s Only A Love Song You give me just enough love Never too little, never too much You’re the girl of someone else’s dreams But you’re manifest and real to me We’re both so far from home We’ll forever be on the run We traded in all friendships Just for this one A band of two A synth duo group You monopolise me, and me you And the highs are high The lows are low This the stuff that only our hearts know We share a light in the heat of the night We share a light and it’s a vital light We share a light when there’s no other light We share a light, all night every night It’s Only A Love Song

Wild Sunsets In that foreign bigger scheme of things There’s a time and place for everything And you can cheat the damn reaper once or twice This cat lying here, he’s got one last life In the shock of June we’re on a precipice A gathering, where life meets death And it’s a headlong rush into the grip of fear He’s in the anteroom There’s two doors out of there Come back to us, we’re all waiting here Those who love you much, they’re scared, scared, scared Strangely life goes on the same But the question remains; can you take the pain? It’s hard to tell in life when you’ve been truly blessed Wake up now brother, forget the rest It’s times like these real peace you’ll get From music and wild sunsets Where once all details clearly read Have now been turned to silhouette Sunset He manages to dream, a while For a while In a lonely, roofless Cadillac He’s on an open road And he won’t look back It’s a bright blue cloudless morning sky It’s the greatest drive And he wonders why There’s a world of possibilities And it’s a world of much facility It could be said that it’s a strange privilege To be brought close like this A tectonic shift It’s times like these real peace you’ll get From music and wild sunsets Where once all details clearly read Have now been turned to silhouette Sunset It’s times like these real peace you’ll get From music and wild sunsets Helicopters landing as their golden blades shed flakes of red sunset

Your Weird Career It’s not easy On a sun shy day When looking for an Eden on earth And all you see is dirt All those lonely forces in your head Gather to thwart your career And all your aspirations dead What it is that you do is not clear You just keep walking to see what’s round the next Curve The more lost you get, the more strangeness occurs All ideas are stillborn The ladders that you climb are Escher drawn Opportunity appears and then disappears Like a bird on the hand of your weird career In your atelier In your atelier alone Either evangelical or full of doom What’s wrong with you? All those processes are fake They help you get through the day But you’re so far from home So many miles away You just keep walking to see what’s round the next curve The more lost you get, the more strangeness occurs All ideas are stillborn The ladders that you climb are Escher drawn You’re trying to ride a Hog but you can’t change gear Another rut for the wheels of your weird career You’ve done everything right but it’s all gone wrong So now you’re doing it all wrong hoping it all goes right Here comes a nervous breakdown You just keep walking to see what’s round the next curve The more lost you get, the more strangeness occurs All ideas are stillborn The ladders and the doors are Escher drawn You’re trying to fly in the highest atmosphere Like Icarus of old and his weird career
