GOLDEN HOUR - LYRICS

HUNGER

Looming threat
In my head
I found I’m in the thick of it
Forming threads
From my hands
Lead me back, I’ll follow it

I got my eyes on the horizon
I let the seed grow in my mouth


Bite my hunger
Let my mind, wild
In the Jungle, wild
Bite my hunger
Let my mind, ride
With the thunder, wild


Fell asleep
All a dream
Awoke to hear it calling me
Final leap,
I’m on my feet, 
I’ve no idea where this will lead…
 

I got my eyes on the horizon
I let the seed grow in my mouth


Bite my hunger
Let my mind, wild
In the Jungle, wild
Bite my hunger
Let my mind, ride
With the thunder, wild


Forward
Homeward bound
Sink into
The Golden Hour


DOTS

I know I lost something
I searched the map, don't know where you are

Looked everywhere
But all I found were embers from the sparks.
 

Everybody's changing location, 
I thought we'd never part
Point me in the right direction
Should I connect the dots?
 

Ahhh
High and low I search for you
Ahhh
High and low I search for you

 

I know I lost something,
I listen but no familiar sound
You left a trail but now I wonder
Do you want to be found?
 

Everybody's changing location, 
I thought we'd never part
Tell me have we lost connection
Should I connect the dots?
 

Ahhh
High and low I search for you
Ahhh
High and low I search for you


NORTHERN LIGHTS

Take me to the edge
I start to breathe
So caught in my head
I’m in too deep

I close my eyes
Don’t have to fight
I come out here
No need to hide

Wanna be wanna see
Wanna free what's in my mind 
Moving in slow motion
All the time
Wanna be, wandering
Underneath under the northern lights 
I hear it calling


I move with the wind
Flows in my veins
Stronger now within
Lost in in this space

I close my eyes
Don’t have to fight
I come out here
No need to hide  

Wanna be, wanna see
Wanna free what's in my mind
Moving in slow motion
All the time
Wanna be wandering
Underneath under the northern lights
I hear it calling


RUN FOR IT

Wolves are out
Whistling
Say "Come here baby
Walk with me..”

Curious behaviour
Only human nature...

Little birdie
broken wings
your voice is lost, 
To the machine

Curious behaviour
Only human nature

In the dark there are eyes
Lurking in the shadows
I’ll shoot a flame
into the sky
A light that you can follow

Make a run for it
Make a run for it


See that girl
dressed in red
She’s someone’s daughter
Someone’s friend

Curious behaviour
Let it entertainment ya
 

Just a taste
A touch of skin
Talking while the
Wolves close in
Like a fallen tree
Alone, it makes no sound.

In the dark there are eyes
Lurking in the shadows
I’ll shoot a flame
into the sky
A light that you can follow

Make a run for it
Make a run for it


ORIGAMI

Something 'bout cha
I think we could make a sculpture
Just something while we’re waiting
Paper mediation 

I know every crease and every fold
These lines will tell us where we need to go  

We tessellate
Cast a new shape
A thousand cranes to come and fly us home

Fold yours arms, around me
We make origami
We got paper bodies
Let’s make origami

Answer to the question
Polygons and problems
We can make it happen
Following our pattern 

I know every crease and every fold
These lines will tell us where we need to go
We tessellate
Cast a new shape
A thousand cranes to come and fly us home


Fold yours arms, around me
We make origami
We got paper bodies
Let’s make origami


HIGHER

Lately I’ve been drawing lines around you
Each one leads me, 
Closer, a silhouette that I see-through   

If you feel like you’re fading
I can try and colour you in
If you feel I can’t take it
Know I’ve been here from the beginning

Folding on a feeling, to be sure
Boy you got me wondering what for... 
Can I do without it anymore? 


Higher
I aint gonna fight it no more
Cos I can make you feel higher       
You & me I feel so strong
Make you feel high
You can make me feel high


So maybe
We can spend some time
And just see
If in a moment, this too shall pass
And we’ll breathe 


If you feel like you’re fading
I can try and colour you in
If you feel you I can't take it
Know I’ve been here from the beginning  

Folding on a feeling, to be sure
Boy you got me wondering what for... 
I can not do without it anymore…

Higher
I aint gonna fight it no more
Cos I can make you feel higher       
You & me I feel so strong
Make you feel high
You can make me feel high


I can make you feel so much more than love
This fault, is all I need to prove
I can make you feel so much more than love
We’ve all, seen this wall fall before...  


STILL SO YOUNG

Small flakes of snow  
Or just grains in a globe
That you shake

Passenger trains, 
Getting slower the older you get

But time don’t, scare me, no
The future's still so young


All of my friends
All of their ghosts
Try to remember, the days when they drew all their plans

All of their hopes

But we’ll never bend, 
Cos you know that once it was impossible to fly
Follow the ones with dreams too high

Star-studded sky
Or just cheap plastic lights
that just blink  

Waiting on magic
Won't find it if you don’t believe 

But time don’t, scare me, no
The future's still so young

All of my friends
All of their ghosts
Try to remember, the days when they drew all their plans

All of their hopes

But we’ll never bend, 
Cos you know that once it was impossible to fly
Follow the ones with dreams too high

*nasa samples,too!*
