Track Name: Lost Course
and there the boat light lay
damaged by the salt
broken by a tail pipe
glass scattered

and when the men cried
it was hardly for the cost
more for the deliverence
of course, lost

when will they call it?

and when you first
spoke my name
it was because
she had left you
sailing a lost course
Track Name: Storming
you storm in
now i am awake
you're stumbling
like i was

by spring
it was near pointless
with you heading
where i was

near me

your hair
like a lion's
but the manner
not quite as riotous

need me

you said
yet again
storming still
i just wanted you
to need me
Track Name: There's A Line
there is a light
creeps in through your
grandmother's blinds
lying there
you're still, cold
your shape holds
a breathing boulder

but i cannot touch you
i won't
though i could
sing out to you
i don't

humming along
as you pour the tea
i sit. plaiting the threads
of my nightdress
would you undress me?
in the morning light
right before i've chance
to wake. quite

i cannot touch you
i won't
though i could
sing out to you
i don't

there's a fine red line
running along the floor
the bedspread
inbetween the pillows
inbeween our hands
there's a line
