Track Name: All I Can Offer
This is the time and the place if we make it
This is our chance if we reach out and take it
This is the time and the place if we make it.
Track Name: Home
Separation's got the best of me before, but not anymore
Turn my head from everything, it's the only way I stay sane
Time will pass until I see you, face to face and hand in hand
The only thing that gets me by is knowing that you understand

Sit with me a little while 'cause we both know that soon I'll be gone again
I promise I'll be back but I promise that I'm yours 'til then

You're all I know, there's so many miles from here to where you are
So I won't let go 'cause it's hardest to leave when your heart turns your,
Your feet to stone so I'll waste no time in telling you
When I'm with you I am home
With you I'm home

Patience never was my strongest point, it just leads to anxiety
Forever wondering where you are when I'm gone
Distances mean nothing anymore, cos my heart at home is where you are
And I'll take you with me wherever I go

Sit with me a little while 'cause we both know that soon I'll be gone again
I promise I'll be back but I promise I'm yours 'til then

You're all I know, there's so many miles from here to where you are
So I won't let go 'cause it's hardest to leave when your heart turns your,
Your feet to stone so I'll waste no time in telling you
When I'm with you I am home, with you I'm home
Track Name: Cave In
I'd like to break inside my head
I can't keep telling myself that I feel fine when all I feel is numb
Self worth is only worth so much to me
Picture perfect imperfection is all I ever see
When did life decide that I was done

I'm not the kid I used to be
Someone please tell me what happened to me

I'm giving up on giving up
I'm giving myself every chance to get back up again and face the world today
I might not have my own life again
No rush to move on to better things
All it takes to rise above is just to try

I've given this a lot of thought
And found nothing but dead ends and misunderstandings in my past
It's not something I can ever leave alone
I won't let the past get the best of me again

I'm not the kid I used to be
Someone please tell me what happened to me

I'm giving up on giving up
I'm giving myself every chance to get back up again and face the world today
I might not have my own life again
No rush to move on to better things
All it takes to rise above is just to try

I tried so hard to understand
I couldn't let myself be honest
I caved in under my own pressure
I caved in under my own pressure
Track Name: Polaroids & Picture Frames
We spent so many sleepless nights
Lost out in these city lights
Never any expectations except to watch the sun rise
All those sweet autumn evenings, fires on the beach in July
Or those road trips in the summer
This is our highlight reel with no end in sight

And all these memories of my best friends
Live on in Polaroids and picture frames
No matter how this story writes itself
I know that we'll be there together

We had a running start
At a hundred miles an hour
Cos that's what it takes to keep up with each other
We'll go our separate ways
We'll live our lives day to day
All these pictures on my walls
Remind me of where we came from and the youth we shared

And all these memories of my best friends
Live on in Polaroids and picture frames
No matter how this story writes itself
I know that we'll be there together

Guest vocal: Tom Lanyon of CERES
We used to lie like it didn't matter
We used to talk in exactly the way we wanted
We used to laugh like we didn't know what the point of it was
But god, we loved, we loved, we loved

And all these memories of my best friends
Live on in Polaroids and picture frames
No matter how this story writes itself
I know that we'll be there together

And all these memories of my best friends
Live on in Polaroids and picture frames
No matter how this story writes itself
I know that we'll be there
We'll be there
Track Name: Best Distraction
I've got this desperate feeling
I'm still searching for words to say
I've never been so nervous in my entire life
And it's all I can do not to tell you that this is how I feel
And this could be what it seems to be
I'll take the risk and tell you now

You'll never know
You're the only one on my mind
A broken record scratched on both sides
Stuck on rewind
And these thoughts of you are breaking through all the time and I can't stand it
You're the best distraction that I ever had

Every time I'm around you my heart is screaming out the words to say
And I don't want to hold back
But something stops me every time
And I can only stand by
As all these butterflies inside me try to pick me up and carry me away

You'll never know
You're the only one on my mind
A broken record scratched on both sides
Stuck on rewind
And these thoughts of you are breaking through all the time and I can't stand it
You're the best distraction that I ever had

You can't see what you're doing to me and I don't mind

You'll never know
You're the only one on my mind
A broken record scratched on both sides
Stuck on rewind
And these thoughts of you are breaking through all the time and I can't stand it
You're the best distraction that I ever had
Track Name: Time And Place
We let these songs get the best of us
It seemed like a good time to see if we'll turn out okay
Something to save
Somehow we could break away
Taking the time never seemed so hard
When we were younger and careless
No, time wouldn't test us
We were different and could have been wrong
Looking back is easy when you know what you could have become

This is the time and the place if we make it
I'm giving you all I can offer
But the waiting's killed me up until now
This is the first and the last time I'll ask you
We'll make the most of these moments
So I won't be left here wondering again

We wanted more than you were willing to give
You thought if we could just take it then you'd know we'd made it
Twelve months is a long time to wait
The only way that this works is if we go right back to the start
Through every fight, missed chance and indecision I feel like we've risen
Take this moment, it's our time to own it
Close your eyes to the lights, take the stage and you'll see

This is the time and the place if we make it
I'm giving you all I can offer
But the waiting's killed me up until now
This is the first and the last time I'll ask you
We'll make the most of these moments
So I won't be left here wondering again

I know you miss this
While you ask for more distance
I can't say I wouldn't do the same

This is the time and the place if we make it
I'm giving you all I can offer
But the waiting's killed me up until now
This is the first and the last time I'll ask you
We'll make the most of these moments
So I won't be left here wondering again

This is the time and the place if we make it
Close your eyes and just reach out and take it
This is the time and the place if we make it

(I know you miss this
While you ask for more distance
I can't say I wouldn't do the same)
