Track Name: Terminal 4
I assign meaning to railway stations, street signs and park benches
Landmarks of my triumphs, traumas, heartbreaks and adventures
Cities feel like chapters from my autobiography
Brought to life in a movie screening only I can see

London Heathrow arrivals, you were waiting at Terminal 4
That's when I first knew you did not love me anymore
Every time I pass through there I can see us standing there
In amongst all the smiling faces, our ghosts still hang in the air

Certain locations, precise coordinates transport me
Like combinations of words and melody they bring back history
Now I’m five and I’ve got nothing but time
Now I’m old and I want to go home

I never felt so excited as Christmas 1993
We waited so impatiently, just my big brother and me
Standing outside the house we lived in, strangers live there now
As though we never existed, but we’ll be always there somehow

Certain locations, precise coordinates transport me
Like combinations of words and melody they bring back history
Now I’m five and I’ve got nothing but time
Now I’m old and I want to go home
I just want to go home
Track Name: 100,000 Fireflies
I have a mandolin
I play it all night long
It makes me want to kill myself
I also have a dobro
Made in some mountain range
Sounds like a mountain range in love

But when I turn up the tone
On my electric guitar

I'm afraid of the dark without you close to me
I'm afraid of the dark without you close to me

I went out to the forest and caught
A hundred thousand fireflies
As they ricochet round the room
They remind me of your starry eyes

Someone else's might not have made me so sad
But this is the worst night I ever had

I'm afraid of the dark without you close to me
I'm afraid of the dark without you close to me
Always was

You won't be happy with me
But give me one more chance
You won't be happy anyway
Why do we still live here
In this repulsive town?
All our friends are in New York
Why do we keep shrieking
When we mean soft things?
We should be whispering all the time
