Track Name: Golden Life
Anything before I go?
Anytime, I hope
it’s never wrong

Everything you’ve ever wanted
It’s written all over my face
There’s always someone else who’s waiting
Some “hope”, a “saving grace”

Out of time, but keeping calm
Someday, I’ll be gone soon
Then every night
You can run away, away.

I guess you know what this is for
so never mind
Cause I’ll still love you from afar

Golden Life
Golden Life
This Golden Life
isn't gone

I know we never counted
but kinda wanted
to play that scene
its just nothing you ever needed
nothing about the things I’ve seen

I wonder if you see it
everything I'm thinking about you now
oh my darling I’m trying to keep afloat
here in hell

Soft spoken, all night, I know
Everything I want is in this town
Just want it here with you

All thats gone and fleeting
stays here
in this song
Oh, that golden feeling
its time
there won’t be another chance
Track Name: Pivotal
On my way
We’re on our own
no more waiting, fuck the phone

There’s no need
to dream alone
Let’s pretend the world’s not home

Waves of light
All your own
Point the way towards the throne

Frenzied streets
now our home
Chill your soul down to the bone

Moments here
never slow
when your heart is out on loan

It’s ok
to set the tone
buried in the broken stone

Fractured hearts
in the zone
realign before they've flown

These million nights
bathed in chrome
Love stands frozen, overthrown

2 AM
All alone (but)
Your distractions keep me warm
Track Name: Slow Reply
わざとらしく平然とした態度
昔なじみの空気
あなたの眼差しは
船を千基も歓喜させ、動かす
我々が包み込む世界は
逆境に打ち勝ち、
切望あふれ、顔を上げる
太陽に近づこうとする花のように

あなたがしがみつく
禁止された礼儀
見事なものだが
罪である

だからそのことを考えてはいけない
Track Name: Only You
You're next to nothing
Could be someone's something
A devil in your soul
Scratching, kicking
Still looking for permission
Go wherever winds may blow

(But I)
I'll give you all my time
I live for only you
For only you
I'll leave it on that line
I live for only you
For only you

The arms of strangers
Handsome re-arrangers
Have fashioned you so cold
When you're curling, twisting
Never know what you're missing
Trading their glitter for your gold

(But I)
I'll give you all my time
I live for only you
For only you
I'll leave it on that line
I live for only you
For only you

And if there's a God in the sky
Go and ask him and he'll tell you why

I'll give you all my time
I live for only you
For only you
I'll leave it on that line
I live for only you
For only you
(But I)
I'll give you all my time
I live for only you
For only you.
Track Name: Deaux
Nothing really ever disappears
The face in the mirror
Your whys and my fears

Nothing really matters as seconds spill
Try finding something else
through life's side effects

So I had to have a drink or two
with the devil who took the shape of you

I would close my eyes
and think of the blue
behind the life I thought I knew

It doesn't have to make sense from what I’ve seen
Things are no longer what they seem

Nothing lives forever
Neither a breath nor a dream
Your smile over the touch of your skin
That simple moment, a perfect thing

Nothing really ever disappears
The face in the mirror
Your whys and my fears

Nothing really ever disappears
The love through the mirror
My eyes and your tears
