Track Name: Leaps and Beats
I’ve been looking for someone
You see I’ve mused on more than one
I tried to think of other things
I’m failing
There's something different about this face
I keep it with me in other places
I think of funny things to say
When I see her

Oh she’s so fine
I can’t talk about it
My heart, it leaps and beats
I hope she beats for me

She’s been acting differently
Like she’s nervous of when to speak
Our souls are little dancing fools
In the rain

Oh, she’s so fine
I can’t talk about it
My heart, it leaps and beats
I hope she beats for me
Oh no, she’s so fine
I can’t talk about it
My heart, it leaps and beats
I hope she beats for me

Then came time to make the move
I didn’t speak ‘cause I got no groove
She fades away into the air
Is she beating?

Oh, she’s so fine
I can’t talk about it
My heart, it leaps and beats
I hope she beats for me
Oh no, she’s so fine
I can’t talk about it
My heart, it leaps and beats
I hope she beats for me
Track Name: Imaginary Dragon
I’m walking home and it’s getting dark
And the other one is free
She’s taking care she’s following
She towers over me

She’s keeping back to the shadows
Though she’s rarely perceived
There’s no one on the street with us
And I turn to my old steed
It’s been so many years and now
She’s over twenty feet

And oh, she takes me up to the sky
We fly the rest of the night
Farther up than ever before

I see her more and more again
Wherever I’m alone
We rest on lonely mountain-tops
To the north of Monaco
In these moments taking in
The view she seems to glow

And oh, she takes me up to the sky
We fly to desolate isles
Places I had never known

Tonight I see her waiting there
In the middle of our field
She seems a little restless
Like she has a truth concealed
Nonetheless, she bows and I
Get on my dragon’s seat

And oh, she takes me up to the sky
And cries a mournful cry
Takes me back to the falling leaves

We set down in this darkened place
Of memories dead and gone
I fled this world a lifetime past
To the Rock of Monaco
Time has passed and I am old
And I just want to go

And oh, she takes me up to the sky
We fly like the first time
Free to never again be blue

Meet my friend
Her name’s unknown
I met her when
I wasn’t grown
She takes me here
She takes me there
She always cares
We’re quite a pair
She flies
Track Name: Voices of Reason
Take us back to your home
‘Cause you won’t find what you are looking for
There’s no need to be sad
You’re not alone though it can feel like that

You’re following your heart
But babe it’s broken, you can hear it
Louder through your cocoon
The sound of twenty thousand violins

I see your sorrow
Baby, I see it all
Listen to all the voices of reason
They know what I was

Take us back to your home
‘Cause you won’t find what you are looking for
There’s no need to be sad
You’re not alone, though it can feel like that

I see your sorrow
Baby, I see it all
Listen to all the voices of reason
They know what I was

This mess is like a lot of things we spoke about
This mess is like a lot of things you told me about

I see your sorrow
Baby, I see it all
Listen to all the voices of reason
They know what I was I see your sorrow
Baby, I see it all
Listen to all the voices of reason
They know what I was

This mess is like
You told me
You told me
You told me
Track Name: Hold Back
I don’t wanna be alone with you
I don’t wanna be alone with you
Waiting for a bell to ring
‘Cause I don’t wanna be alone with you

Hold back

I don’t wanna be alone with you
Taking back what’s rightly mine
Waiting for a bell to ring
‘Cause I don’t wanna be alone with you

Hold Back
Hold Back

I don’t wanna be alone

In the night you lie awake and
You suffer for your feelings
You’ll waste away, you’ll die here
Get up, get off
You feel free of every burden
As you float up to the ceiling
And you look down at your body
Get up, get off

You’re looking for the other
You’re seeking what I’m seeing
I hope I am mistaken
Get up, get off
I shit you not, you’re losing
Your very sense of being
The thing that makes you human
Get up, get off

My words wasted on her
She waits
The long endless summer
She waits
She waits
She waits
