Track Name: Hold Fast
There on the moor
His cape lay still
Sun-bleached worn
Materials

Because I remember when
A thousand miles
Was just beyond the garden wall
And we could escape there then
To become whoever
We wanted to be

We were kites
Rising high
Pulling Twine
Til' you were blown away

Cos' I remember when
A thousand eons
Lay across the fence, waiting to be explored
With capes around our necks
We ruled an empire
And as we ran, yours fell to the ground

Cos' these changes aren't forever
Time moves on we fade away
And like cotton slowly fraying
The circle never sways

I fly your kite
Rising high
Pulling Twine
Til' i am blown away

They are kites
Rising high
Pulling Twine
Through the people who remain
Track Name: Plans (Acoustic)
A one track mind
Is sure to win
He calls the shots
He knows where he's going

But he spends all his days making plans
He'll never live with his head in the sand
As the beauty of the journey passes

We were always on the outside but locked in
Let the light through all these plans our minds lost in
Though the grass maybe greener, I'm not waiting
Cos' now we know

A heavy heart
Is sure to lose
We're young we're smart
And times surely ticking

But we hold onto all of these plans
But they are held light in our hand
Content with the taste of freedom

We were always on the outside but locked in
Let the light through all these plans our minds lost in
Though the grass maybe greener, I'm not waiting
Cos' now we know
