Track Name: Absence
Lyrics:
They say absence makes the heart grow fonder
Well that don't make much sense to me
I guess to see then one of us will have to wander

They say distance will make our love grow stronger
Well that don't make much sense to me
I guess we'll see if it can change how much I want ya

They say patience is a virtue
Without knowing what we're going or we've been through
And you know it's up to us two
To decide when this debate will be continued

'cause I'm head over heels for you and that's fine
Now I don't know what to do with my time
I'm head over heels for you and that's fine
'cause now you're not by my side
I don't know why I act this way

All this distance has made my love slow
I know this is difficult darling
But it's hard for me as well you know

And I've got these commitments, you know I had to go
These things you've said are so unkind
They've got me going out my mind
But I'm trying not to let it show

They say patience is a virtue
Without knowing what we're going or we've been through
And you know it's up to us two
To decide when this debate will be continued

'cause I'm head over heels for you and that's fine
Now I don't know what to do with my time
I'm head over heels for you and that's fine
'cause now you're not by my side
I don't know why I act this way

Absence.
Track Name: Arms Of Another
Video: youtu.be/iDOoTQ70buo

Lyrics:
A Parisian parting of lips
Now he's in the full swing of her pendulum hips
In industrial lights they begin to French kiss
He won't be sleeping alone

She's never done a thing quite like this
She's bouncing right back from a failed relationship
As he touches her hand she tightens her grip
She won't be sleeping alone

Now he's hooked by the hue of her hosiery
Shifts its shade at her knee so suggestively
And you know they're both acting regrettably
No-one likes sleeping alone

We all fall into the arms of another
Might take us a day to discover
It's just for the night we'll be lovers
No-one likes sleeping alone

With hands intertwined they've started their trip
Getting more distant sip after sip
When the morning arrives will he give her the slip?
Will she be waking alone?

He's never been one to get out of there quick
Kind of naive, not particularly slick
Well the morning arrives and the clock starts to tick
Will he be waking alone?

He's still hooked by the hue of her hosiery
Shifts its shade at her knee so suggestively
And you know they're both acting regrettably
No-one likes sleeping alone

We all fall into the arms of another
Might take us a day to discover
It's just for the night we'll be lovers
No-one likes sleeping alone

Well of course you know it will never be enough
But everybody wants to be in love

Where? Where will you be waking up?
Track Name: Swimming
Video: https://youtu.be/5T2G1thD80Q

Lyrics:
Stop talking all the time
Please rest your weary mind
This nervousness is hurting us
And I am not inclined
To draw out these grand designs

So won't you come swimming?
Swimming on back to me
Won't you come swimming?
Swimming on back to me

You've set sail for far away
I know this won't be night and day
I'm telling you that you'll be fine
To have a backbone, show some spine
If only I could do the same.

So won't you come swimming?
Swimming on back to me
Won't you come swimming?
Swimming on back to me

It's far too cold to be out there alone
There's this place I know we could build a home
This works all right for some
Can we give it a run?
I know we're only young

But won't you come swimming?
Swimming on back to me
Won't you come swimming?
Swimming on back to me
Track Name: Far Away (Saudade)
SAUDADE, n. portuguese - a feeling of longing, melancholy, or nostalgia

Lyrics:
When you're alone in bed
And your whole day plays through your head
Picture me instead
Talk to me, you can talk to me for hours

When it's raining out there
I hope you stay unaware
Stick with me and we'll share a little time
Seconds, minutes or some hours

So when you can't convey
Can't find the words to say
You're feeling Saudade you know
I'll never be that far away

When you've got too much on
And everything you're doing feels wrong
Get through 'em one by one
I wish that I, I wish that I could do them for you

Stay in bed all day
Curtains keep the whole world away
And we can do whatever you want to do
As long as I, as long as I can do it with you.

So when you can't convey
Can't find the words to say
You're feeling Saudade you know
I'll never be that far away

I know you've had your highs
I know you've had your lows
I'll be there by your side
Through all the to's and fro's
Ignore the warning signs
I'll show you how this goes
If you just shut your eyes
I'll be there for you, love

So when you can't convey
Can't find the words to say
You're feeling Saudade you know
I'll never be that far away.
