Track Name: Last Goodbye
It was January it was rainy and cold
She said don’t be afraid baby let go
This is my last goodbye
These are my final words to you
And as all our dreams turn to dust
Remember that we are just passing through

These white walls can conquer the mind
Just what she means to me I cannot define
This is my last goodbye
These are my final words to you
From here it’s easy to see
That the future’s not what it used to be

Well well, so here we are my love
Would you look what we’ve become
We thought that living was as easy as loving
And now we’ve faded to grey
From here its easy to say
I’m sorry I was made this way
Track Name: Penny
Paint me in your scene and I’ll write for you
Paint me in shadows in shades of blue
I took the easy way
Penny I found the words to say

Penny I’m coming back for you
Penny I couldn’t go
Penny I’m coming back for you
Penny I miss you so

By the crescent moon I lie awake all night
I see your pale face and all is right
You sang my melody
Penny you bring me harmony

Penny I’m coming back for you
Penny I couldn’t go
Penny I’m coming back for you
Penny I miss you so
Track Name: These Four Walls
As time blows away the lines on his face
Say he's learning how to behave
He remembers his father as he wrote down the words
"Be a man who is considered brave"

She read The Picture Show out loud to me
And I felt the words under my skin
Itinerent pan handlers poets and theives
Are showing me how to begin

Put me in your daydream
Or write me a verse in a song
Then put me on a train and send be back where I belong

These four walls
Will crumble all around us girl
And be forewarned
There's a ticking clock and a waiting world

So we follow the music go south of the river
Tomorrow is coming unstuck
I swam in catharsis and remembered the time
When I was young and in luck

Just black out the world for me
Amidst all this fury and sound
I'm thankful for mercy
I'm thankful for oblivion anyhow

These four walls
They will crumble all around you girl
And be forewarned
There's a ticking clock and a waiting world
Track Name: To Tomorrow
The honour guards of the house of cards
They hold a gathering
They drink fine wine and talk of happy times
Of when they served the king
“I won't go” Says the retiree
It’s too bad he couldn’t Keep his dignity

It’s how sweetness fades
Like daylight breaking to a chambermaid
This is how sweetness fades

Golden leaves on broken trees
Quiver in the wind
And a petty thief tells his priest
Exactly how he has sinned
“I can’t stop, I got a family”
On bended knee “Forgiveness If you please”

It's how sweetness fades
Oh my burden how heavy it weighs
This is how sweetness fades

So if we make it to tomorrow
If we make it through at all
Would you let me rest though i am second best
Would you let me know
If the fire burns cold

Oh it's how sweetness fades
Now you gotta lie in the bed you made
This is how sweetness fades
