As we walk where once were roads, we’ll talk to strangers about our woes, sympathise on common ground as we never could, before the snow it filled our eyes, with the blindness of its light, reflected from the sky above, forcing us to talk. The gifts we leave to mourn those past, will take stock into the ground and flourish beside where once were roads, as they never could and as we walk where once were roads, we’ll talk to strangers about our woes, sympathise on common ground, as we never could before. as we never thought we could before, well, we never talked before, why did we never talk before? We go by every day, without a word to say, to the passers-by, who make up our lives.

I drew a picture on your wall, so you’ll always have a view If it’s dark outside and you feel scared, you’ll always have a view and all the things you love the most, will show themselves in there and change the picture from day to day as so much changes from day to day. So a different picture every day, depending on how you feel and each one may appear short lived but then so much is... and all the friends you love the most, will dance together in there and change the picture from day to day as so much changes from day to day All the people dance together Hand in hand they hold each other No one asks much of the other Know that nothing lasts forever.

As we count the stops that stop us on our way do you count the stops to wish away this day? As we sit here alone saying nothing... Problem is I don’t know who you are, anymore problem is I don’t care who you are, or what you’ve become. there’s so many things you’ll never do so many places you’ll never go to, so don’t just sit there and let regrets wash over you. Get out my way, please do, now that we’re older and wiser. Get out my way, please do, now that we’re older and wiser. Get out my way, please do, now that we’re older, wiser... There’s no one better than you at being you... so just be you. There’s no one better than you at being you... so just be you. There’s no one better than you.

I wrote some words for you, but they were twisted blue, So I covered them in light, and they floated away. In the sky they found, all the clouds around, were also made of words that had floated away. There are threads coming down from the sky, Each one leaves its mark on our lives, Don’t be scared for they’ve always been there, Find out, which one you are, Find out, which one you are...
