Tides is a digital EP that we released in 2011 as a free download from our website, it features alternate versions of five songs from our album The Ocean And The Night.
we go one by one as we march along yeah oh we kept falling you know we had you young after we had a dance... you make me feel like little bourke street with all it's colour at the mercy of this cold winters night... but i don't mind bright lights big city throw your pretty face in the scene (i said) you're fast to run from all this again you don't ever want to stay you're like the first running away but you said you’d stay, you'd swear to me let’s stand and fight this love together... you know we could be the one this is our last chance so breathe in the morning air
oh please it's windy today so don't make me fly my body is weak, yeah it's frame is so light and i know falling asleep at the feet of this hungry beast is like taking to a wino with a bottle of red but we've all got to get fed and are just searching things to dine on. why don't we take the car and leave do you think we could make it past all the police because we're in need of something to excite us we're so damn scared that we'll fail, we don't try hard as we float....affluence these modern waters we swim yeah they're deep but we're not getting wet i'll paddle this shipwreck out to sea and let the ocean have it's way with me as it beats me round I hope you’ve been saved my broken youth has an icy face when you paint a mess like you and me washes of colour and passion make it hard to see but when you're staring at a claude monet the more you understand the more you move away
breathe through your bleeding honey i'm glad you don't lie on your back where you could watch this mess a knife can turn off your light (or cut you free cliff aided descents i'm looking sharp but i'm a lonely kid i wish i was brave and felt happier than i did oh when i was younger my face is worn because i'm tired honey i'm skin and bones on the floor it's so damn clear from up here this and ever is a long fight) so show me your ocean eyes in the morning i'll try to quit this isn't romance but it's much harder than i expected it to be we took a book of matches and set this place alight.... we walked to your house to see what we could find climbed up the water tower where our escape and the truth collide we walked through your house and took every thing inside you dropped the match and now we're running from the fire oh the sun went down over this small town tonight even your ocean eyes aren't blue enough to stop this fire
(when the lightning comes i'll be a spire or just an open field yeah i'm sparse, i'm middle of the road you're an avant-garde but i'm the only one out here who's dodging cars) do you want to be lovers... i'm tired of touching ice this fight is over... just like we're over designed and our coats say we're freezing... and these hearts will end up the same do you want to be lovers... we're facing outer space all of your pretty shapes slices on open arms make it feel ok to love but even better to suffer
i felt death today i felt death blow through me but it had nothing on a stiff winters breeze i thought it might be colder than this holes in my wrist it was my chance to leave relentless i'm relentless yeah that you've told me so honey hold me but don't hold me away and all the trees are fighting but its not worth fighting for this place it’s almost lost... and I needed a hole in my heart like a hole in the head but you still drew breath and aimed to the left of my chest cold faces get colder... oh for the love of god we’re alright everybody's alive baby yeah we're alright sugar we’re running with the first line attacking them at first light
