Track Name: High Speed Wobble
I'm not saying I am not scared
I am petrified
I've been here before
And I fell off
But since then I've learnt a lot
I hesitate
At the top again I wait

I knew no fear
Boy I could really fly
Peddled my hardest
While the world whooshed by
But then it all went wrong
I got a high speed wobble on
And lost control
I got thrown
A helicopter in trouble earth bound
Speedometer read 38
When my head hit the ground

You said "we should be sailing down
This is your chance you have to take it now"
But I moved to Cardiff because it is flat!
Ahh what the heck
Let's do this my love
No holding back
Track Name: Something Small
I turned you into something small
To make myself big

Kept you at arms length
As if you were a threat

Our love grew so fast
It almost collapsed
But now we're built to last

Those questions I asked
That I wish I never had

I was in love
But I let you go and think that I wasn't

Our love grew so fast
It almost collapsed
But now we're built to last
Track Name: I'm Not a Book You'd Want to Read Again
Some days it feels like I will always be the same
A lonely statue staring with a vacant gaze
The world passes by
Leaving its grubby stain

Can't help feeling that I could never change
Plot of my life unclear
I am a torn out page
I'm not a book you'd want to read again

These days I get the sense that I cannot be free
A boat without a crew
Bobbing on open sea
Drifting wherever the creeping tide takes me

Holding out on everything
Watching each train pass me by
On and on to wherever it may be
Stationary me

Can't help feeling that I could never change
Some days it feels like I will always be the same
Track Name: Spectacular View
We stock-piled our bad memories
Hoarded things that hurt into a heap
Over time we'd made a mountain of our old dirt
Which we climbed and could not leave

The sounds of another time
Rattled and chimed in us
Making the ground shift and shake up on the peak
So precarious!

From something old
Came something new
This spectacular love
Spectacular view

Now that we've levelled off the top
Old Smokey stands so sturdy
Bound together by fleshy moss

It's a special hill we've built
Never budging when we stamp our feet
And make the dirt reverberate

From something old
Came something new
This spectacular love
Spectacular view

We didn't know until we tried
How it would look on the other side

I'm just so glad that I've built it with you
