Track Name: The White House
In the white house on the hill
That is where I lost my will, To learn
In the woods that surround it
You never would have found it, Again

In the white house by the sea
That is where I learn to be, Alone
And the birds that flew past it
They never would have lasted, in there

[Chorus]
Now when the white house calls
To the lights I crawl
To the lights I crawl

In the white house on the island
I learnt old age is tiresome, for all
All the boats that come near it
have only learnt to fear it, for now

For all the years I've lived
The words I'm left with, Are few
From white house by the sea to the city of silent dreams, I'll run

[Chorus]
Now when the white house calls
To the lights I crawl
To the lights I crawl

From now on I will live
Give all I've got to give, to life
I'm the island, I'm the sea
And all I want to be, Is me
out here

[Chorus]
Now when the white house calls
To the lights I crawl
To the lights I crawl

Now when the white house falls
To the streets I'll call
To the streets I'll call
Track Name: You Won't Find Love If You Look
I saw the commotion
When branches start falling
On the trees of the past
The leaves never last at all

When old friends stop calling
The path that leads home
Is always alone for some

But all the commotion
Leaves us on our own
but you're never alone

[Chorus]
You might find peace in a book
But you won't find love if you look
And the lives of the lovers it took
No you won't find love if you look

I saw your intentions
Eyes wide like fawn dear
and your legs frail and young
have a verse to be sung for sure

As you start to yawn dear
The search you are on
Won't be too long I know

But for all your intentions
The path that leads home
Is always alone for some

[Bridge]
All the signs
Cry out
All the bonds
die out
All the lives
continue
Track Name: Comfort
Sometimes I'm more aware
The comfort that you are there
Sometimes I can't respond
Cos I just can't repair
Sometimes I lose my sight
But I still stand and stare
Sometimes I breath too fast
And I just gasp for air


Won't you take me from this island
Far away
To another land where I can
Grow old
Won't you take me from this island
Far away
To another land where I can
Grow older


Sometimes I'm more in tune and I can play for you
Sometimes I need some space
Oh but that's nothing new
Sometimes I drift away
But I don't know where to
Sometimes I lose myself
And I just call for you
Track Name: Autumn
Leaving home
Feels like autumn
Falling leaves
And the ground that caught them

I know
There isn't far to go
I know
You will be coming home

Travelling
Feels distorted
Lessons learned
House is haunted

I know
There isn't far to go
I know
You will be coming home

I won't wait
But I'll still be here when you return
Tell me now what did you learn
Tell me now would you wait your turn
I won't wait
Track Name: Come Home
As the dawn breaks
And the sky turns blue
All the birds cry
Yeah they cry for you (come home)
Lest the wind breaks
And the trees do to (come home, home, home)

As the ice melts and the cliffs fall through
When the waves crash
They crash in to you (come home)
All the lights gone
'Til the day is new (come home, home, home)

Time is healing
But the now hurts, true
Now he sleeps and
He waits for you (come home)
I am grateful that he gave us you (come home, home, home)
