Track Name: Key Largo
why you wasting it?
soul can't breathe straight

Sold and loaded
with arms spread stolen
in a forward motion
we'll dissolve slower

for your warmth it's worth amber and gold
palms already worn
Track Name: Beach Side
Whenever you're travelling, imagine
Whenever the tide drops your sailing stop
Whenever you take time it's only mine
Whenever you're running it's nothing


I'm only perceiving what seeps in
It's only a day out from dreaming whilst sleeping
We're only escaping what mentions our ventures
Next season let's keep still, i keep still, you keep still
Track Name: Swing (Abridged)
But it works like a charm I know how to relate
it's half a mile around but it breaks, i only want what you want
i'll say that i'm half carried away
Track Name: Mango Fever
If i try to get you by would you know?
If i want to lift you up would you know?
If i see just what you need would it show?

If i work a bit harder and I move a bit faster
cos my running's all backwards and i only want you around

If you swim a bit further
and you last a bit longer
it'll make it all better
but i only wanna bring you down
oh man
Track Name: Don't Know What To Do
see it there
count your dollars trace the papers
you're always pulling it back
but i know you're off track
what it means to me
is you're barely asleep
rule of thumb room of orange
pull you in so i'm winning
don't lose your mind
cos i'm hardly on time
i'm envisioning it right
the nights just slide by
don't waste your time
there's no telling you twice
the way you caught up your sight
makes me think we're just right
we'll be braver next time
the way we're undone all the time
but you're always, undone
when he tells me he's freer
go paint your landscape
cos it's only the rules you break
and you're always, undone
Track Name: 45
Unedge myself from stone below
to lose myself to overflow
don't tell me what I know is mine
sounds boring but it's all the time

go hide and wait near steps and pools
to see you there a vision full

don't tell me what is mine
don't hesitate, don't sail away
don't hesitate to feel the same
don't lose your game, don't take your faith
