Track Name: Our Love…
Our Love Love Love, Love Will Bring You Down
Our Love Love Love, Love Will Burn it Down

And the summer on the run, I Slowed it Down
By the fire we were young, our heart knows it pounds
Swear to God, a million odd, to make it right now
and I can still bring us down right, now and then

Somewhere in the dust I know we'll find it out
A bullet bit and my heart, won't help ....

Our Love Love Love, Love Will Bring You Down

And the days when we were young, your body repaired
Get in closer crying love, your heart it was scared
Swear to God, a million odd, we had it right there
I'll pick you up, let you down in the end

Somewhere in the dust I know we'll find it out
A bullet bit & my heart, won't help us now
All we really want is to let this go now
and all we really want is to slow it down
and all we really want is to let this go now

Our Love Love Love, Love Will Bring You Down
Our Love Love Love, Love Will Bring You Down
Our Love Love Love, Love Will Bring You Down

Our Love Love Love, Love Will Bring Us Down
Our Love Love Love, Love Will Bring Us Down
Our Love Love Love, Love Will Bring Us Down
Track Name: This City
The City is cold and it cuts through my toque
I file into your rust-covered coupe
I don't know what we're going to do

I don't want to be there by you
As the City explodes through the defrosted view
I don't know what we're going to do

Oh, but for now it's all gone
We were waiting to be right, waiting to be wrong

The City is cold and it cuts through my toque
I'm just stuck sitting here loving you
I don't know what we're going to do

And the City is dark tonight
We're doing fine, we're doing alright
And I don't want to be stuck if I'm with you

Oh, but for now it's all gone
We were waiting to be right, waiting to be strong

And oh, given all that's going wrong
I just wanna know if it scares you now if we're done

And the City is dark tonight
We're doing fine, we're doing alright
And I just want to be stuck if I'm with you

And the City is dark tonight
We're doing fine, we're doing alright
And I just want to be stuck if I'm with you
Track Name: On the Rocks
Let's rush into the city
Try to punch its lights out
And I'll object because
We'll have to skip the make out
There's nothing going wrong
There's nothing going down

On TÍte De Vache
We set the path we're walking down again
There's nothing in your heart
We've lost the fight again
There's nothing going wrong
There's nothing going down

Hearts they were strong
Never made a sound
Our love was on the rocks
The day we let it out

Nothing going wrong
Nothing going down

Our love was not dead
But I've lost the fight again
There's nothing in your heart
It's all we got my friend
There's nothing going wrong
Nothing going down

Hearts they were strong
Never made a sound
Our love was on the rocks
The day we let it out
Nothing going wrong
Nothing going down

Hearts they were strong
Never made a sound
Our love was on the rocks
The day we let it out
Nothing going wrong
Nothing going down
Track Name: Terrified
I'm terrified, honey I got you if you pull the knife
It's only right, put your hand around the hilt tonight

Lovers unaffected how did you expect it'd go?
Lovers undetected how did you expect to grow old?

I'm terrified, honey look me dead square in the eyes
Oh terror "My heart's a ghost," you cried
"living off another ghost now."

Lovers unaffected how did you expect our love was gonna go tonight?
Lovers undetected how did you expect our heart was gonna grow tonight?

Lovers unaffected how did you expect our love was gonna go tonight?
Lovers unoffended how did you expect our heart was gonna grow tonight?
Lovers uneffected how did you expected our heart was on a ghostly ride?
Lovers undetected how did you expect to grow old?
Track Name: Runners in the Night
I saw you rushing to the fire
Balanced on the bones with a darkness in your eyes
Our thoughts were crippled by desire
Suddenly gestalt just colliding in the light

I know, concentric rings in the bones aside
We've surely grown enough
I know, they lead to hands that wring and dry your eyes
Before it's too much

Our thoughts were wicked by design
If we could get home then we could get us right
I'll watch you wither up in time
Than let you grow alone just colliding in the light

Though in time we were hanging on the subtlest sign
Waiting on the final cry
just ringing outta sign
but tonight we're surprised if we're runners in the night

I know, concentric rings in the bones don't lie
We've surely grown up
I know, these hands that wring they're gonna dry your eyes
Before we give enough

Though in time we were hanging on the subtle sign
Waiting on the final cry
but when you gonna dry your eyes

we were holding up the keep and more
after hanging on the final chord
"It'll be alright" his voice informed
just ringing outta sign
but tonight well you're mine and we're runners in the night

after that night and more
after hanging on the final chord
"It'll be alright" he screamed and more
just ringing outta sign

but tonight well you're mine and we're runners in the night
Track Name: To Be Scared
Oh there's nothing to be scared
Oh there's nothing to be scared of
Tonight I got you running in my mind
Lord I got you hanging on a line
Go to sleep on rotten bed alone lonely night
Lord My God you're running out of time

Oh there's nothing to be scared of
Tonight the wolves they're crying in the night
Sleeping in the cold I was clutching on a knife
Lord I got you running through my mind
Lord I know we're running out of time

When the wolf cries out, She need me now
When the black bear growls, I need you now
I need you now

Oh there's nothing to be scared of tonight
Track Name: 45/33
She sings electronically on the breeze
Spinning 45s between her 33s
Reaching out to you between the sheets

And I give you something that you need
Something that'll bleed out of your heart

Can I love?
Can I love you too much?
Can I love?
When your heart turns to dust

And I will guide you in the night
Cause we don't have to die
If the heart is getting cold

And your body's getting old with mine
We're dark horses in their prime
Jesus don't you try just to start

Can I love?
Can I love you too much?
Can I love?
When your heart turns to dust

Can I love?
Can I love you too much?
Can I love?
Can I love you too much?
Can I love you too much?
Can I love?
When our hearts turn to dust
Track Name: All We’ve Ever Known
The winter's wrapping around your throat
And our life was a terrifying force at the start
Never wrong, never grown
And all along we're all alone

It's alright! It's all we've ever known
All along! Just shaking in the coals
It's alright! It's all we've ever known

Winter's wrapping around your throat
And our life is on a terrifying course getting old
Of all your fears I inspired
I know that I am scared more

All along! We'll shiver in the cold
It's alright! It's all we've ever known
It's alright! It's all we've ever known

Back for a time we were terrifying
Snap bands around the wrists
Convincing you're alive

Back for a time we were terrifying
Snap bands around the wrists
Convincing you that you're alive

The winter's wrapping around your throat
Now our life has a terrified ghost realized
In dusty corners sleepy eyed
For all she knows she's on her own

It's alright! She's all we've ever known
All along! She's tracking in the cold
It's alright! She's all we've ever known
Track Name: The Build
Hold me close I love your hands
Thunder cracks like the old man's back
We saw the Hero collapse
Holding onto our old plans

They stole my bags from the car
They stole the shells out of my shoes
I had so many plans for the heart
I had so many plans for you

Hold me close I love your hands
Lightnin' frightens the old girl again
She's given about all she can
Hanging onto our old plans

They stole my bags from the car
They stole everything but you
We had so many plans at the start
And I had so many plans for you
Track Name: Vulcan, AB
Oh tonight
Under those old prairie skies
There's a lonely heart like yours that's breaking mine

In my life
I've been about as far as I'll climb
And the winter's hiding our desire lines

But I'm gonna wake you up
gonna break you out
gonna steal your heart
and save you now
gonna try, gonna fight, gonna forget how

And I'm a gonna tell you lies
gonna let you down
gonna break your heart
and grow up now
gonna try, gonna fight, gonna fuck up now

Oh, you and me and the Enterprise
Stuck in Vulcan, telling lies

Oh tonight
our love was on a slow decline
waiting on a empty heart to tell you tonight

And I'm a gonna tell you lies
gonna let you down
gonna break your heart
gonna grow up now
gonna try, gonna fight, gonna forget how

But I'm gonna wake us up
gonna break us out
gonna steal your heart
gonna save us now
gonna try, gonna fight, gonna fuck up now

Oh, you and me and the Enterprise
Stuck in Vulcan, telling lies, now

Lovers with a terrible doubt
Lovers via kiss of the mouth
tonight our love was on a slow decline

Oh, you and me and the Enterprise
in Vulcan another night
Track Name: Not Love or Death
Nothing's gonna tear you away from me, not love or death now
Nothing's gonna hold you back to me now
And our love is want again doll

The fire's gonna burn you back to me and, in the end, die
We've been running hard, the body's starved for going on awhile
And our love is what you want again oh
And our love is on you in the end

Oh we're on fire, alone
There's nothing bringing you home
Oh we're just lying here, alone
There's nothing saving this home

The fire's gonna burn you back to me and, in the end, die
We've been fighting hard, the ember's been gone for going on awhile
If our love is always waiting then oh
Then our love, let's burn it to the end

Oh we're on fire
There's nothing bringing you home
Oh we're just lying here, lost
There's nothing saving this home
Track Name: …On the Run
My Lord, My Lord, My Lord
We been facing this day, facing us both

Oh the lights go down
On a life been running through now
And our love was on the run now

The dust came out
And your heart it pounds
like a drunk on the door now
come to lose all he ever found

My Lord, My Lord, My Lord
We been facing this day, facing us both

My Lord, My Lord, My Lord
We were chasing mistakes, chasing us both

But tonight, into the lights, we were working on making it go
And tonight, under the lights, I was working on letting you go
And tonight, into the lights, we were working on making it go
And tonight, under the lights, I was working on letting you go

But tonight we're gonna grow up
But tonight we're gonna grow up

Our love was holding you down I know
For now it's time to let you go
Our love might be gone I know

Your heart will soon pound and grow
And our love was on the run I know
And our blood still pounds I know
And our life it's been fun I know
But our hearts they'll still pound and grow

(Our love) [I don't know you now]
(My Lord) [I won't hurt you now]
(My Lord) [I don't know you now]
[I won't hurt you now]

(My Lord) [I don't know you now]
(My Lord) [I won't hurt you now]
(My Lord) [I don't know you now]

{I don't know you now}
{I won't hurt you now}
{I can't love you now}
{I'm here for you now}
