Track Name: Takeoff
Empty seats with tired faces,
silence spreads between the aisles.
It's midnight in the airport baby
and I miss you across the miles.

Fluorescent glow and shadowed hallway.
The shops are closed, the check-ins too.
The janitors do their swaying dance across the starlit floor
and I wanna dance with you.

And now they're calling out my flight.
Travelator's rocking me to sleep.
The plane is waiting now to fly me in a dream,
where the clouds are counted sheep.
Track Name: Second Time Around
First time, I didn’t understand
I took a train, I hailed a cab
Always rushing in the wrong direction
My radar jammed, compass cracked

But now I know
How fast it goes
Have to take it slow
Second time around
I will be there for you

Through the dark days, the early rise
On the treadmill that never stops
Coming home when you’re sound asleep
Hold my breath, kiss your cheek

But now I know
How fast it goes
Have to take it slow
Second time around
I will be there for you

Watched a comet from Midsummer Hill
They say it won’t be back in my lifetime
Shall not see its light, but I know you will
I wish upon your star, pray that it goes far
Blazing through the galaxies

Precious moments, shells upon the shore
They lie scattered in the sand
Footprints leading down to the sea
Jump the waves, take my hand
Track Name: The Gin Waltz
I don't know where it all went wrong,
there must have been a sign, must have been a song.
There must have been a turn in our little dance that I missed.
And you once told me winter would come,
cold and spite would see us both undone,
I told you then, I love the snow, I still do.

Bring me another glass of gin.
Lets see the new year in.
Tell each other lies, before the sunrise
and start the new year in sin.

I don't mean it when I say we're through.
Your eyes don't say it when I'm mean to you.
I forgive you for all the things I've done in your name.
And sex might rear its ugly head,
but you were always so beautiful in bed.
One more time before the clock strikes twelve to dull the pain.

Bring me another glass of gin.
Lets see the new year in.
Tell each other lies, before the sunrise
and start the new year in sin.

Bring me another glass of gin.
Lets see the new year in.
Tell each other lies, before the sunrise
and start the new year in sin.

And in the morning's scalpeled grin,
I see the shimmer of your snowfall skin.
Ice and lime and the passage of time, it's all gone.
And everything is frozen, everything is still,
everything is broken by our solid will.
Last night's fire and consuming desires burnt out.
