The Place Where Lost Things Go

Do you ever lie
Awake at night?
Just between the dark
And the morning light
Searching for the things
You used to know
Looking for the place
Where the lost things go
Do you ever dream
Or reminisce?
Wondering where to find
What you truly miss
Well maybe all those things
That you love so
Are waiting in the place
Where the lost things go
Memories you've shed
Gone for good you feared
They're all around you still
Though they've disappeared
Nothing's really left
Or lost without a trace
Nothing's gone forever
Only out of place
So maybe now the dish
And my best spoon
Are playing hide and seek
Just behind the moon
Waiting there until
It's time to show
Spring is like that now
Far beneath the snow
Hiding in the place
Where the lost things go
Time to close your eyes
So sleep can come around
For when you dream you find
All you've lost is found
Maybe on the moon
Or maybe somewhere new
Maybe all you're missing is inside of you
So when you need her touch
And loving gaze
Gone but not forgotten
Is the perfect phrase
Smiling from a star
That she makes glow
Trust she's always there
Watching as you grow
Hiding in the place
Where the lost things go
 

It's About Time

Walking down to the water's edge
Where I have been before
If I don't find my love sometime
I'm walking out that door
Some may come and some may go
But no one seems to be
The person I've been searching for
The one who's meant for me
 
Biding my time
Trying to find a heart that's lonely
Looking for her
My love, my one and only
Maybe I'll dream
Tonight about the girl who'll be coming my way
So I'll take this chance and celebrate the day
 
When I'm making my way through an open door
I've got some love and so much more
And I'm ready to make someone mine
Making my way through an open door
I've got some love and so much more
And I'll find her, 'cause it's about time
 
You try too hard and it feels just like
You're running on thin air
Why does luck happen by surprise
If you don't really care?
The past is gone, the flames are out
From fires that have burned
From new ideals and different thoughts
From lessons I have learned
 
Biding my time
Trying to find a heart that's lonely
Looking for her
My love, my one and only
Maybe I'll dream
Tonight about the girl who'll be coming my way
So I'll take this chance and celebrate the day
 
When I'm making my way through an open door
I've got some love and so much more
And I'm ready to make someone mine
Making my way through an open door
I've got some love and so much more
And I'll find her, 'cause it's about time
 
Got the feeling this could take a pretty long while
To find that smile
I put my faith in another piece of good advice
Well, I tried that twice
Waiting for a little something more
To inspire and take me higher, oh
 
And I'm ready to make someone mine
 
I'm making my way through an open door
I've got some love and so much more
And I'll find her, 'cause it's about time
It's about time
It's about time
It's about time
 

Age Of Anxiety

I just wanna live inside sometimes
Don't wanna have to beg you to subscribe
Are you a man before your father dies?
'But what’s a man these days?' I hear you cry
And are we raising up our children right?
Is my career gonna reignite?
See all the virtue signalers tonight
I want that bandwagon to pass me by
 
Well, I've been scratching around in the dirt
Looking for meaning in the cold, cold earth
To gather in what's left of your self-worth
Cause only love is what survives of us
 
Cause I hold onto you
And you hold onto me
A tiny victory in the age of anxiety
 
Do those kids know that I was somebody?
And I’ve kept all my texts from Amy
My mother was one of those bodies
Another stranger off the ferry
 
Don't wanna put my hands up in the air
And raise my phone up like I just don't care
And [?] blow me down the White House stairs
Oh, did I waste my time on all that prayer?
No, I won't be your apparatchik
And be the kind who's blind to all its magic
So here comes your European exit
With asylum seekers in your attic
 
So I hold onto you
And you hold onto me
A tiny victory in the age of anxiety
 
Today I do not feel like being strong
I don't wanna admit to the world I'm wrong
Don't make me feel that I have to belong
I hope the band won’t make me sing along
 
Cause I hold onto you
And you hold onto me
A tiny victory in the age of anxiety
A shining victory in the age of anxiety
 
I hope the band won’t make me sing along
I hope the band won't make me sing along
Oh, mmm
The age of anxiety
I hope the band
I hope the band
I hope the band
I hope the band
 
I hope the band won’t make me
Whoa, whoa
I hope the band won't make me
Whoa, whoa
I hope the band won't make me
Whoa, whoa
I hope the band won't make me
Whoa, whoa (Love survives of us)
Whoa, whoa (Love survives of us)
Whoa, whoa (Only love survives of us)
(Whoa, only love survives of us)
 

Taller

I realize there's something in you missin' in me
Now we are tryin' to fight the fight more eloquently
Now you are bending beautifully toward the bright light
So please let me take you through this glorious night
 
So I don't measure up, I was sober and furious
Playing out my life
So hand me a rope, will I climb, will I choke
Till I make the stars align?
 
I wish I was taller
I wish I was wiser
So can I stand next to you?
So can I stand next to you?
So can I stand next to you?
So can I stand next to you?
 
Face it, we don't belong in the traditional sense
We, we know we're as solid as a sky-high fence
 
To be loved in the arms of a glorious life
With your body as my shrine
I'll be happy to drown when we're both lying down
I'll commune with the divine
 
I wish I was taller
I wish I was wiser
I wish I was taller
I wish I was wiser
So can I stand next to you?
So can I stand next to you?
So can I stand next to you?
 
I just wanted to be next to you
Ooh, I just wanted to be next to you
Can I stand, so can I stand?
I just wanted to be next to you, oh
I just wanted to be next to you
I just wanted to be next to you
 

London Skies

Paint a picture,
Clear cut and pale on a cold winter's day,
Shapes and cool light wander the streets like an army of strays,
On a cold winter's day.
 
Will you let me romanticize,
The beauty in our London Skies,
You know the sunlight always shines,
Behind the clouds of London Skies.
 
Patient moments you chill to the bone under infinite grays,
Vision hindered mist settling low like a ghostly ballet,
On a cold winter's day.
 
Will you let me romanticize,
The beauty in our London Skies,
You know the sunlight always shines,
Behind the clouds of London Skies.
 
Nothing is certain except everything you know can change,
You worship the sun but now,
Can you fall for the rain
 
Will you let me romanticize,
The beauty in our London Skies,
You know the sunlight always shines,
Behind the clouds of London Skies.
