Track Name: True Love Will Find You In The End
True love will find you in the end
You'll find out just who was your friend.
Don't be sad, I know you will,
But don't give up until
True love will find you in the end.

This is a promise with a catch
Only if you're looking can it find you.
‘Cause true love is searching too,
But how can it recognise you
Unless you step out into the light, the light?
Don't be sad, I know you will,
But don’t give up until
True love will find you in the end.

Track Name: In For The Kill
We can fight our desires
Oooh but when we start making fires
We get ever so hot
Oooh whether we like it or not.
They say we can love who we trust
Oooh but what is love without lust?
Two hearts with accurate devotions
Oooh but what are feelings without emotions?

I'm going in for the kill
I'm doing it for a thrill
I'm hoping you'll understand
And not let go of my hand.

I hang my hopes out on the line
Oooh they'd be ready for you in time.
If you leave them out too long
Oooh they'll be withered by the sun.
Full stops and exclamation marks
Oooh my words stumble before I start.
How far can you send emotions?
Oooh can this bridge cross the ocean?

I'm going in for the kill
I'm doing it for a thrill
I'm hoping you'll understand
And not let go of my hand.

Track Name: The Velvet Cell
To understand the killer
I must become the killer
And I don't need this violence anymore
But now I've tasted hatred I want more.

To understand the killer
I must become the killer
And I don't need this violence anymore
But now I've tasted hatred I want more.

The velvet cell within men
Gloriously rusted masks
Grey death heart crocuses.
The velvet cell.

And I had always thought
The desire to kill was a disease you caught
But it's dormant in the hearts of everyone
Waiting for a spark, an emotion.

The velvet cell within men
Gloriously rusted masks
Grey death heart crocuses.
The velvet cell.

Track Name: Am I Wry? No
Farah, now that we're here
Can you tell me exactly how I should have done?
Farah drives with her eyes closed.
Do you ever inflict unwanted memories?

I know you
And I know it won't take you long
To make me smile.

Farah, angelic girl,
I'll have you know it's you and me potentially.
Farah, don't pull the carpet
From under me. Indifference is killing me.

Track Name: In the Aeroplane Over the Sea
What a beautiful face
I have found in this place
That is circling all round the sun.
What a beautiful dream
That could flash on the screen
In a blink of an eye and be gone from me
Soft and sweet
Let me hold it close and keep it here with me.

And one day we will die
And our ashes will fly from the aeroplane over the sea.
But for now we are young
Let us lay in the sun
And count every beautiful thing we can see
Love to be
In the arms of all I'm keeping here with me.

What a curious life we have found here tonight
There is music that sounds from the street.
There are lights in the clouds
Anna's ghost all around
Hear her voice as it's rolling and ringing through me
Soft and sweet
How the notes all bend and reach above the trees.

Now how I remember you
How I would push my fingers through
Your mouth to make those muscles move
That made your voice so smooth and sweet.
Now we keep where we don't know
All secrets sleep in winter clothes
With one you loved so long ago
Now he don't even know his name.

What a beautiful face
I have found in this place
That is circling all round the sun.
And when we meet on a cloud
I'll be laughing out loud
I'll be laughing with everyone I see
Can't believe how strange it is to be anything at all.

Track Name: April Come She Will
April come she will,
When streams are ripe and swelled with rain,
May she will stay,
Resting in my arms again.

June she'll change her tune,
In restless walk she'll prowl the night,
July she will fly,
And give no warning to her flight.

August die she must,
The autumn winds blow chilly and cold,
September I'll remember,
A love once new has now grown old.
