Track Name: One Day I'll Come Home
One Day I’ll Come Home

Dear Dad,
I’m writing to you from the A train – the train from that old jazz song that you like
I worked late now I’m going home to finish off these songs, it’s gonna be another long night

I spoke with mum the other night don’t say I told you but she cried, she misses me my brother and sisters too
And have you heard from my dear brother or is he still fighting in another country’s war? Tell me what else is new

One day I’ll come home
And have a beer with you alone
On the footsteps of the door to our place
And we’ll talk of all the things that have made us who we are
But til then I hope my letter will fill this space

So my love? Well he he left and I’m trying to be ok
It’s hard sometimes to not feel so damn alone
So I dream and think and write and sing and put it in a song
Hoping to pass the time, it won’t be long


One day I’ll come home
And have a beer with you alone
On the footsteps of the door to our place
And we’ll talk of all the things that have made us who we are
But til then I hope my letter will fill this space

I’m coming home
I won’t be long
I’m coming home
I won’t belong

One day I’ll come home
And have a beer with you alone
On the footsteps of the door to our place
And we’ll talk of all the things that have made us who we are
But til then I hope my letter will fill this space
Track Name: Wolf In Sheepskin
The air was cold, the stars were bright
The Wind was wild, the moon alive
And the trees were dancing oh how they danced
So I took your hand, I took a chance

I breathed, I breathed the cold wind night
And we'd play, yeah we'd play, till morning light

But like a wolf in sheepskin
You got me in
Like a wolf in sheepskin
you got me, you got me in

The night wind twirled leaves through my hair
You didn't notice I didn't care
My heart was open my eyes were wide,
I thought it was love, I didn't have to hide

And I gave
I gave my heart to you
Because I thought you'd know just what to do

But like a wolf in sheepskin
You got me in
Like a wolf in sheepskin
you got me, you got me in

Then the night grew darker
The wind stopped whistling the air stood still
and then I realized that this whole damn time
You were the hunter and I was, I was the kill
I was the kill

But like a wolf in sheepskin
You got me in
Like a wolf in sheepskin
you got me, you got me in
Track Name: BFF
I miss you my best friend
We were gonna rule the world
We held hands and declared that we wouldn't be scared
So where did all the time go

And where did you go best friend?
Last I heard you left our home town
You went on a plane and you moved to Spain
While I was London bound

And now we don't talk like we used to
and ten years on, I know we'll say
Where, where, where did the time go?
Where, where, where did the time go?
Where, where, where did the time go?
Did the time go?

What did you do, best friend?
Did you grow up without me?
Did you get a real job just like those people from high school
Or are you still overseas?

And who did you meet best friend?
Did you meet a prince or a king?
Did you meet a boy, or did you save the world?
Just tell me anything

it's so sad we just don't have the time
and if we did, we'd be fine but I know I know We'll say
Where, where, where did the time go?
Where, where, where did the time go?
Where, where, where did the time go?
Did the time go?

So long my old friend, I hope to see you again
So long my old friend, I hope to see you again

Where, where, where did the time go?
Where, where, where did the time go?
Where, where, where did the time go?
Did the time go?
Track Name: Suburbia
We fall in love straight out of school
and all of our friends think it's really cool
we buy a dog and name him spike
we marry young you make me your wife

and we live in the house your grandparents built
and I'll grow fresh herbs on the windowsill
we have two kids by twenty-five
it would be a simple life

'Cause I'm with you, in sububia
where people wash their cars
and walk dogs in the park
I'm with you, in suburbia
Living the simple life

Our friends grow up and move away
chasing their dreams in the big city
It's too much for me I must confide
I prefer the simple life

'Cause I'm with you, in sububia
where people wash their cars
and walk dogs in the park
I'm with you, in suburbia
Living the simple life

And things don't change much
Except we watch the kids grow
and things don't change much except I love you more than I know
And things don't change much
Things don't change much

'Cause I'm with you, in sububia
where people wash their cars
and pray to jesus after dark
I'm with you in suburbia
living the simple life
living the simple life
living the simple....
Track Name: George (The Longest Winter)
You’d share your bed
And I’d find space in the sheets
And I’d hide in your arms and hear your heart beat da-dum da-dum da-dum
It was pure and good
And we’d lie still and awake
And hear the sounds of the night till the morning would break

And though outside was cold, I had you to hold me

I’d call you george and we’d speak in code
And in winter we’d hibernate while outside it snowed
And you’d call me your muse while I’d play my guitar
It was the longest winter by far
Then spring came
You were gone

You liked acronyms and you’d play with your words
And I’d indulge in your wit, it was always absurb

And though outside was grey, you and me were ok

Cuz I’d call you george and we’d speak in code
And in winter we’d hibernate while outside it snowed
And you’d call me your muse while I’d play my guitar
It was the longest winter by far
Then spring came
You were gone

We’d sit at your window
And watch the night streets glow
Like fire, marveling how beautiful the world seemed

And I’d call you george and we’d speak in code
And in winter we’d hibernate while outside it snowed
And you’d call me your muse while I’d play my guitar
It was the longest winter by far
Then spring came
You were gone
