Track Name: Moving Forward
Moving forward
Moving forward

It’s the little things
That remind me

Moving forward
Moving forward

It’s the piece of me
That feels incomplete

Moving forward
Moving forward

How can you be in a better place?
When I’m here, without you?
Your perfect skin
And your liquid smile
Have turned to ashes

There’s no one
To call for recipes

Moving forward
Moving forward

Or cheer me on
When I reach for dreams

Moving forward
Moving forward

How can you be in a better place?
When I’m here, without you?
Your perfect skin
And your liquid smile
Have turned to ashes

They say
You’re at peace

Moving forward
Moving forward

That now
Your body’s free

Moving forward
Moving forward

How can you be in a better place?
When I’m here, without you?
Track Name: The Broken Man
Shrug off your cloak of night
Spin myself
Like a dervish, around you
Closing orbits

Blood shallows trail my dreams
Shadows pulse
To the rhythm of your breath
Only you can see

Oh, stranger than a lover’s hand
Stranger than the broken

A heartbeat a hoof-fall
Sorrow drives me
Onto rocks
And the waves

I am consequence of you
I feel the weight of love
Of lost intentions
Only you can see

Oh, stranger than a lover’s hand
Stranger than the broken

Holy, holy, holy, bottom of the sea
Lowly, lowly, low, sinks the sun

I’ve forgotten how to close my eyes
My sight cold
Brittle
Reassembled

Your mouth ablaze
Salted sky
I hear the rhythm of the stars
Only you can see

Oh, stronger than a lover’s hand
Stronger than the broken man

Only you can see
Only you can be
Only you key
Only you, only you
Only you can see
Only you can be
Only you key
Only you, only you

Moving forward

That feels incomplete

You’re at peace

Moving forward

Now, your body’s free

How can you be in a better place?
When I’m here, without you?
