LYRICS

1. Days In The Sun

And so I woke to the, the sun on the window of my car
And I said, I woke to the summer on my window
And I miss you most when the sunlight filters across these empty sheets
Days in the sun, the winter cold on your cheeks
And everything we need love I can feel in my bones
On days like these and days like those

Days in the sun
Nights on the streets
And I am singing to my mother, singing to the seas
See I’ve been singing to my father, singing to the trees
Singing to the things that help us breathe
Days in the sun
Are all, these days are all, all, always, they are always
The best with you
 
And so I woke to the, the sun on the window of my car
And I said, I woke to the winter on my window
And I miss you most when the sunlight filters across these empty sheets
Days in the sun, and Ben Howard on repeat
But everything we need love I can feel in my bones
On days like these and days like those


 
Days in the sun
Nights on the streets
And I am singing to my mother, singing to the seas
See I’ve been singing to my father, singing to the trees
Singing to the things that help us breathe
Days in the sun
Nights on the streets
And I am singing to my mother, singing to the seas
See I’ve been singing to my father, singing to the trees
Singing to the things that help us breathe
Days in the sun
Are all, these days are all, all, always, they are always
The best with you

2. Hands I Can Hold

And so keep, the things we can’t breathe without
And I’ll seek, a woman like you
And we’ll reach, for hands with which I can learn
And we’ll keep, these hands I can hold I can hold
 
So she said to me, give me words that I can fold
And then I’ll keep them in my pocket
Above my shirt and above my heart and above my home
These hands I can hold I can hold
 
Turmeric in teas and wisdom of our own
And there’s plastic in our seas
And there’s plastic in our homes, in our homes
These hands I can hold, I can hold

Hold, hands I can hold I can hold
Hold, these hands I can hold I can hold

And so we, we’ll share some tea on the porch
And then we'll spend time
In the sea before and after dark
And all this stone and wood
All this stone and wood will stay here, stay clear
And you know that we’ll get old
Hands I can hold I can hold

Hold, hands I can hold I can hold
Hold, these hands I can hold I can hold

See I can’t promise you much
But time by the sea
And I can’t promise you things
But I can promise you these

Hands I can hold I can hold
Hands I can hold I can hold
These hands I can hold, I can hold (x6)

3. Gone (The Pocohontas Song)

And I watch as the sun goes down, as another day lost for now
And I wonder where you woke up this morning
‘cause it was just last night, but oh your kiss
It was just a touch, but oh your lips
She was beautiful
And we put our hands up to the sky, screamed the lyrics loud, not shy
Then you put your hand in mine and
Well they, they fell perfectly together
 
She looks like Pocahontas but, she wears these high-top sneakers
With a button-up, she’s so indie but she’s, really beautiful, she’s beautiful
And she grabbed me closer so I said, well hypothetically, theoretically
And well, she said nothing and well she kissed me instead
As the sun starts to rise, and the twilight night is thin
She kissed me for the last time, and she was
 
Gone, gone as the daylight comes, and I’ll probably never see her again (x3)
Gone, gone as the daylight comes, and I'm falling in love, and I won't pretend
 
It was just a fling, but that is the thing
‘cause I don’t know if I want you to hear this song
Would you sing along, would you turn it off or turn it up
Would you learn the lyrics and come see me the next morning
Because I don’t know what I want, or what you want
But the thing is
 
She looks like Pocahontas but, she wears these high-top sneakers
With a button-up, she’s so indie but she’s, really beautiful, she’s beautiful
And she grabbed me closer so I said, well hypothetically, theoretically
And well, she said nothing and well she kissed me instead
As the sun starts to rise, and the twilight night is thin
She kissed me for the last time, and she was
 
Gone, gone as the daylight comes, and I’ll probably never see her again (x3)
Gone, gone as the daylight comes, and well I'm falling in love, and I won't pretend

4. Youngblood

An ochre love in the heart of all
An ochre love and the cold sea shores, dear
‘cause my blood is yours for the night
‘cause my fears are only little things like these cold seas and broken strings
 
‘cause my blood is yours for the night
So, late nights and this warmth between your thighs
So, warm eyes and this warmth between your thighs, dear
 
(Chorus)
Oooooh, love, youngblood
Winter love so soft, winter love so warm, youngblood, youngblood, youngblood
Winter love so soft, winter love so warm, youngblood
 
(Verse 2)
An ochre love in the heart of all
An ochre love and the cold sea shores, dear
‘cause my blood is yours for the night
Because my fears they’re only little things like these cold seas and broken strings
 
‘cause my blood is yours for the night
So, late nights warm eyes and this warmth between your thighs
So, late nights warm thighs and this warmth between your eyes dear
 
(Chorus)
Oooooh, love, youngblood
Winter love so soft, winter love so warm, youngblood, youngblood, youngblood
Winter love so soft, winter love so warm, youngblood
 
Say oh my love, oh my love, love, love
I said oh my love, oh my love, love, love
I say oh my love, oh my love, love, love
Love, love, love, love, love, love – love, love, love, love (x3)
 
(Chorus)
Winter love so soft, winter love so warm, youngblood, youngblood, youngblood (x3)
Winter love so soft, winter love so warm, youngblood
 
Say oh my love, oh my love, love, love
I said oh my love, oh my love, love, love
I say oh my love, oh my love, love, love
Love, love, love, love, love, love – love, love, love, love (x2)
Love, love, love, love, love, love – love, love

5. Settle Down

And the neoprene on my skin, a familiar warmth to the cold
Making memories out of dusty rooms, out of dusty roads
So when the winter comes, when the winter comes around love
I’m going to find myself a good woman and then I’ll settle down

And the taste of the nicotine on your tongue doesn’t seem so bad anymore
But the things that it’s doing to your lungs is kinda hard to ignore
So when this winter comes
When the winter comes around, I’m going to find myself a good woman
Then I’ll settle down
When winter comes around

And the neoprene on your skin, a familiar warmth to your tones
But I’m asking reasons why
Despite all of my best efforts and I was only gone days at a time but you
So when the winter comes, when the winter comes around love
Well I’m going to find myself a good woman and then I’ll settle down
 
And the taste of the nicotine on your tongue doesn’t seem so bad anymore
But the things that it’s doing to your lungs is kinda hard to ignore
So when the winter comes
When the winter comes around, I’m going to find myself a good woman
Then I’ll settle down
When winter comes around

I'm going to find a good woman
Settle down, when winter comes around
(x4)

6. Simple Things (The Ocean Song)

So shake the cold from your toes
And let the east coast walk you home
So shake the cold from your heart
If at all, and let it fall
‘cause it takes a lot to make a heart a home to love
And it takes a lot to love your own
But I, well I didn't even get your name when you walked on by, dear
But I held your eyes so you held mine
Hoping you would stop so I could ask you these, simple things
Like – well, do you love the ocean, and well, could you love the ocean with me?

‘cause I'll be yours love, ‘cause I'll be yours
‘cause I'll be yours, my love, my love
‘cause I'll be yours
Because I'll be yours
And these are the simple things, and I want you, love love
‘cause these are the simple things, my love, my love

So shake the cold from your toes
And let the east coast walk you home
So shake the cold from your heart
If at all, and let it fall
‘cause it takes a lot to make a heart a home to love
And it takes a lot to love your own
But I, well I didn't even get your name when you walked on by, dear
But I held your eyes so you held mine
Hoping you would stop so I could ask you these, simple things
Like – well, do you love the ocean, and well, could you love the ocean with me?

‘cause I'll be yours love, ‘cause I'll be yours
‘cause I'll be yours, my love, my love
Because I'll be yours
Because I'll be yours
Because I'll be yours, hey!
 
Mmm yours love, ‘cause I'll be yours, well I’ll be yours love
Know that I will be yours
 
These are the simple things
I want you, love, love
Because these are the simple things
My love, my love

7. Follow The Ocean

Hmm walking
Walking on these roads we thought we might have known
Holding onto things from which we thought we’ve grown love
Walking on these roads from which we knew but now we’re lost
 
So when you walk your demons tonight dear
Let’s hold their paws and we’ll keep them warm
And we’ll keep them warm now
When you walk your demons tonight my dear
Let’s hold their paws and we’ll keep them warm
And we’ll keep them warm

So follow the ocean back to your heart
Follow your fears back to the start
So follow the ocean back to your heart
Follow your fears back to now where we learned
And where we were taught
To fear this falling
This falling for you

Hmm because I’m not
I’m not sure now when I’m coming home
‘cause I’ve come to love this time alone
And I’m not sure how
I’m not sure now when I’m coming home, ‘cause this road we lost dear, we lost here
 
So when you walk your demons tonight dear
Let’s hold their paws and we’ll keep them warm
And we’ll keep them warm now
When you walk your demons tonight my dear
Let’s hold their paws and we’ll keep them warm
And we’ll keep them warm

So follow the ocean back to your heart
Follow your fears back to the start
So follow the ocean back to your heart
Follow your fears back to now where we learned
And where we were taught
To fear this falling (Hey!)

Because I’m not sure I’m coming home love
Coming home love
Because I’m not sure when I’m coming home love
Coming home love, coming home love
Because I’m not sure when I’m coming home
Coming home, coming home
Because I’m not sure, when I’m coming home, coming home

So follow the ocean back to your heart
Follow your fears back to the start
So follow the ocean back to your heart
Follow your fears back to now where we learned
And where we were taught, where we were taught
To fear this falling for love, falling for love, falling for love
This falling for love
Falling, this falling, (yeah)
 
This falling for you

8. Church Man

Waking up to the morning light with you by my side
And the sunshine through the window
We were in love
You're at my door at 9 in the morning telling me
All that I have done wrong, you’re saying I’m a fool

So you're not probably going to like that I’ve been hanging with Mary Jane
And I’m high on sex not amphetamines
So damn it call me a fool

I said Mr church man stop knocking at my door
I said oh Mr church man you know that I’ve heard it all before
When I go let me die fool by the sea
And if the ocean lets us maybe you can come and drown with me
We’ll die fools in love, die fools

And I love running my hands along your throat
My fingers along your neck
And your chest can lay against mine ‘cause see
This trust is reserved
And oh we’ll be up late at night, losing sleep, drinking wine under the stars
And the fear that I hear you speaking of, sir
I’ve heard it all before
 
So you're not probably going to like that I’ve been hanging with Mary Jane
And I’m high on sex not amphetamines
So damn it call me a fool

I said Mr church man stop knocking at my door
I said oh Mr church man you know that I’ve heard it all before
When I go let me die fool by the sea
And if the ocean lets us maybe you can come and drown with me
We’ll die fools in love, die fools
We’ll die fools
(x2)

9. Slow Dance

Let’s pretend like we have had this for years
And you smiled
But I can’t pretend to try and love you with the touch of time
With your big brown eyes and a smile girl
Well you asked
Could you be the guy to come home and slow dance with me tonight?
 
And one soft kiss at a time, we’ll move a little closer
And you can entangle your heart in mine
And the touch of your lips down my neck to send shivers up my spine
And well I, your eyes they are closed
And your hands are wrapped in mine
 
And a slow dance and a bottle of wine
And a slow dance by candlelight
And once, and once, we are done
We’ll take the phone directory in my passenger seat
Guide us home, guide us home
Take the phone directory in my passenger seat
And guide us home
 
(x2)
 
Guide us home

10. Used To

Waking up here to blue skies, and I’ve been going to sleep a little too tired but I am
Still learning how to switch off, been relying on my alcohol a little too much
Nineteen but my eyes have grown old, and people ask me where my bones don't show
I said this youth is something that I've earnt
I said this youth is something that I've learnt to love, who am I, who am I
There’s two sides to a candle there’s, two sides to a candle, being burnt
 
(Chorus)
Cold ground with no shoes on, my old van in your front yard
And making love to you all night long, running my lips along your outlines
Waking up to the morning light with you by my side, these are
See these are the things that I want to get used to
And you are someone that I want to get used to
 
(Verse 2)
Waking up here to blue skies, and I’ve been waking up just a little too tired but I am
Still learning how to switch off, been relying on my coffee just a little too much
Nineteen but my eyes have grown old, and people ask me where my bones don't show
I said this youth is something that I've earnt
I said this youth is something that I've learnt to love, who am I, who am I
There’s two sides to a candle there’s, two sides to a candle, being burnt
 
(Chorus)
Cold ground with no shoes on, my old van in your front yard
And making love to you all night long, running my lips along your outlines
Waking up to the morning light with you by my side, these are
These are the things that I want to get used to
 
Cold ground with no shoes on, my old van in your front yard
And making love to you all night long, running my lips along your outlines
Waking up to the morning light with you by my side, these are
See these are the things that I want to get used to
And you are someone that I want to get used to
And you are someone that I want to get used to

11. Time Alone

What we've found in this time alone, time alone
From the room to grow and some stones to throw
Was a little love in the wood carved from the tree tops
A little love in the ocean and the salty skies
So I stood by the trees here to learn some wisdom
So speak clear, speak clear now
If you can be clear, be clear how
You stood with the silence

Singing grow
So let the wind blow, we can let the wind blow
Grow my love
Singing grow
So let the wind blow, let the wind blow
This time alone, this time alone now

So I'm gonna let my heart walk further then my feet
So my feet can follow, so my feet can follow
And I’m gonna let my heart walk further than it needs to here
And so when I stood by these trees here to learn some wisdom
So speak clear, speak clear now
And if you can be clear, be clear how
You stood with the silence


Singing grow
So let the wind blow, we can let the wind blow
Grow my love
Singing grow
So let the wind blow, we can let the wind blow
This time alone, this time alone now

So let's find some beauty in the silence before we go
And some beauty in the silence before we leave
Because well, I said nothing makes me nervous
I said nothing makes me nervous, like you
And so let's find some beauty in the silence before we go
And some beauty in the silence before we leave
‘Cause nothing makes me nervous
I said nothing makes me nervous like you close to me

Singing grow
So let the wind blow, let the wind blow
Grow my love
Singing grow
So let the wind blow, let the wind blow
Grow my love
Singing grow, let the wind blow, let the wind blow
Grow my love
Grow
Singing grow (Hey!)

12. Land & Sea

The pollen on my nose, marks the start of the spring and the death of the cold
So I move south down the east coast, hope for west winds and for warm toes
To try and understand
The words we know
To try and hold your hand and learn
The ways we speak the ways we fold

Land and sea, land and home
Taking off all, taking off all your clothes
I don't know, I don't know if I'm good for you
Land and sea, land and home
Gave my eyes to the sun, sold my heart to the road
I don't know, I don't know if I'm good for you
‘cause I can't give you, things to keep or things to lose
And I don't know
If I'm good for you
I don't know
If I'm good for you

Just because it's good for you, it doesn't mean, that it's something I've worn I've worn, and
Even if you're worth holding to, with sunburnt lips and morning stars
And I know I'm not good for you, it doesn't mean that it's something I've worn I've worn, and
Even if you're worth holding to, with sunburnt hips and open arms

Land and sea, land and home
Taking off all, taking off all your clothes
I don't know, I don't know if I'm good for you
Land and sea, land and home
Gave my eyes to the sun, sold my heart to the road
I don't know, I don't know if I'm good for you
‘cause I can't give you, things to keep or things to lose
And I don't know
If I'm good for you
I don't know
If I'm good for you

13. Waterside

What these chapters showed us well
And what these chapters showed us how
And from all of the stones that cut our feet, walking to the sea
Can teach us to be softer as our lovers now
Can teach us to be softer as our lovers now
Hmmm

To be lost in your loving now
To be drowning by the waterside
But I’m not lost in your loving now, no
I’m not drowning by the waterside
I’m not lost in your loving now, no
I’m not drowning by the waterside
I’m just in love here by the waterside
Hmmm
‘cause I want to be your bad habit when the night's done
When everybody’s gone home and we’re sober, you know love
‘cause I want to be your bad habit when the night's done
When everybody’s gone home and we’re sober love

And these chapters taught us well
And these chapters taught us how to know
From all this talk of the terrors in the night
And these wolves in the dark but we’ve come too
I said we’ve come too far, I said we’ve come too far dear
Not to be lovers now, to be lovers here, to be lovers dear, no
And we cannot drown I said we will not drown here because
We are made of water, we are made of water dear

To be lost in your loving now
To be drowning by the waterside
But I’m not lost in your loving now, no
I’m not drowning by the waterside
I’m not lost in your loving now, no
I’m not drowning by the waterside
I’m just in love here by the waterside
Hmmm
‘cause I want to be your bad habit when the night's done
When everybody’s gone home and we’re sober, you know love
‘cause I want to be your bad habit when the night's done
When everybody’s gone home and we’re sober
Hmmm
Hmmm
Because I want to be your bad habit when the night's done
When everybody’s gone home and we’re sober, sober love
Because I want to be your bad habit when the night's done
When everybody’s gone home and we’re sober love

14. Sleep Well

Watching the way that you lose your threads
With open eyes
Watching your eyes fall, your hands falling
Watching the way that you lose your threads
Losing my mind
Hmmm

‘cause you, you are
The best of reasons to be nervous now
 
Between these threads, you're the best of reasons
Not to sleep well, sleep well
Between these threads, you're the best of reasons
Not to sleep well, sleep well
Sleep well, to sleep well my love
 
Watching the way that you lose your threads
With open eyes
Watching your eyes falling, your hands falling
Watching the way that you lose your threads
Losing my mind
Hmmm
 
‘cause you, you are
The best of reasons to be nervous now
(x2)
 
Between these threads, you're the best of reasons
Not to sleep well, sleep well
Between these threads, you're the best of reasons
Not to sleep well, sleep well
Sleep well, to sleep well my love
Not to sleep well, to sleep well
 
Well we see the most in the dark, when your eyes are shut
‘cause your hands don't stop love
We see the most in the dark, when my eyes are shut
‘cause my hands don't stop love
We see the most in the dark, when your eyes are shut
‘cause our hands don't stop love
We see the most in the dark, when your eyes are shut
‘cause your hands don't stop love
 
Between these threads, you're the best of reasons
Not to sleep well, sleep well
Between these threads, you're the best of reasons
Not to sleep well, sleep well
Not sleep well, to sleep well my love
Not to sleep well, to sleep well my dear
C’mon sleep well, to sleep well my love
Not sleep well, to sleep well now c’mon dear
Sleep well, to sleep well my love
Not sleep well, to sleep well my dear
C'mon sleep well, to sleep well
No, no, not to sleep well

15. Warm Coffee (The Market Song)

‘cause she’s the sort of girl you find early in the morning
Somewhere at the markets, early eyes
And she’s, she’s the sort of girl you find down by the sea
‘cause the sea never left
And I don’t know much about her
‘cause I met her at the markets and didn’t ask her name
But her eyes were soft and her words were the same

But these were things that I, things, things that I was sure about
Oh my love, oh my love
Things where I, these things where I felt the same
Now that I am trying, now that I’ve been singing softly again
Same way she said, “Thank you” when I told her she was beautiful

‘cause she’s the sort of girl you find early in the winter
With, a cold wetsuit in hand, and she’s
See she’s the sort of girl you find down by the sea
‘cause the sea it always comes where she goes
She’s the sort of girl that your father would love
That your mum would be so proud to show some things
And her eyes were soft and her love was the same

But these were things that I, things, things that I was sure about
Oh my love, oh my love
Things where I, these things where I felt the same
Now that I am trying, now that I’ve been singing softly again
Same way she said, “Thank you” when I told her she was beautiful

Warm coffee on your lips
Warm coffee on your lips
Warm coffee on mine
Warm coffee on your lips
Warm coffee on your lips
Warm coffee in the mornin’ light
Warm coffee on your lips
Warm coffee on your lips
Warm coffee on mine
 
And there was somethin’ in these ‘thank yous’
There was somethin’ that was beautiful
 
‘cause she’s the sort of girl you find early in the morning
Somewhere at the markets, early eyes
And she’s, she’s the sort of girl you find down by the sea
‘cause the sea never left
And I don’t know much about her
‘cause I met her at the markets and I didn’t ask her name
But her eyes were soft and her words remain the same
