Track Name: No Song For You
Loads of happy times, I’m silent
Simple things and peace, just quiet
All the things I thought to say, they all fade, they all fade away.
But I hope your memory’s good.

Slowly winding down, you’re there now
Take a trust that’s strange, you’re free now
All the things I thought to say, they all fade, they all fade away

She cant write a song for you.
No she cant write a song for you
So I hope you’re memory’ good.

Things we swore against, we do now
Touch that’s only them, they know now.
All the things they thought to say, well they all fade away.
Track Name: Oblivion
You try yourselves out at night, Reflecting off the fauna
The sadness you keep inside, the young wine wont let you hide
And everything goes to Hell

Sensitive to the bone Got a smile that can open the world
The warmth between your hands is all you want to feel
Out of you or out of her

And you laughed out loud together Finding company in despair
The lonely nights of waiting are over
Left alone in the car, forgetting where you are
Take yourself away.

You study wood and wire, Hoping it will take you away
To a wild adventure world full of something new and something good that will let you love again
You share the same delusions, but now you’ve talked too much
She laughed when you asked for help Now shes going away,
you should have had her tonight

You laughed out loud together,
You can hardly believe its true, a woman more bastatd that you are
Now she’s alone in the car, hot lonely and far
Sending messages into oblivion.
