Get up 04:09
And you're smiling til your cheeks hurt Too young to choose your tshirt You were created in a moment You won't know about til you're older But while you're pushed round supermarkets Your seat is itching for you to depart it You're crying out crying out You’re crying out crying out Crying out for life to begin So get up Why you crawling round? Get up This place is waiting for you to get out Why you crawling round? Get up This life is waiting waiting   Now you're residing on a sofa As these games consoles console ya Staring up at a poster Dreaming of falling in love But you're scared to even get started You're not a statistic in a jobs market You're a person And you’re crying out for life to begin You may feel that life has passed ya But before you start quoting sinatra You can save that stuff til after And if you're bruised then make a plaster Once again lost in a supermarket But now you're pushing round the kid in the basket You're both crying out crying out You’re both crying out crying out Crying out for life to begin So get up Why you crawling round? Get up This place is waiting for you to get out Why you crawling round Get up This life is waiting waiting We’re born original but we lose it It’s time to disregard that and use it If you want something then choose it And my legs were built for moving We’re not 11 digit numbers We must awaken from this slumber Your path was carved out by hundreds and hundreds Who passed on this life to you And we’ll only be here briefly There’s no pedestal there beneath me I’m as scared as you believe me I’m just clinging on to the ceiling So just leave the supermarket Forget your car or where you parked it Feel us rising out of the basket We’re crying out for life to begin Why you crawling round? Get up This place is waiting for you to get out Why you crawling round Get up This life is waiting waiting

19th of July 03:43
I just don’t know what’s happening My heads a training bike I’ve never felt the way I feel tonight And I’m spinning like no ones business And I’ve never felt more alive We’re drinking through straws of course tonight And they say that Simon’s drinking better But he’s practically twice my size We’re alone in the universe tonight The first evening of our summer And we’re gonna do what we like We’re not getting picked up ’til past midnight! We could be birds We could plant trees We could strip the earth or bask in it’s streams We won’t rest ’til tomorrow We could be light Or we could be rain
We could be the same or we could be change We won’t rest ’til tomorrow Tomorrow! It was the 19th of July Date imprinted in my eyes Threw a party in a field with the sunshine Almost got busted as the flyers were thrusted And the buses just departed the scene Found our saxophone player in a heap under the trailer He was drinking with another band But no music infidelity could creep into the melody ‘Cause summer’s here we understand Yeh summer’s here we understand And they say that Simon’s drinking better But he’s practically twice my size We’re alone in the universe tonight The first evening of our summer And we’re gonna do what we like We’re not getting picked up ’til past midnight! We could be birds We could plant trees We could strip the earth or bask in it’s streams We won’t rest ’til tomorrow We could be light Or we could be rain
We could be the same or we could be change We won’t rest ’til tomorrow Tomorrow! (Breakdown) And they say that Simon’s drinking better But he’s practically twice my size We’re alone in the universe tonight The first evening of our summer And we’re gonna do what we like We’re not getting picked up ’til past midnight! We could be birds We could plant trees We could strip the earth or bask in it’s streams We won’t rest ’til tomorrow We could be light Or we could be rain
We could be the same or we could be change We won’t rest ’til tomorrow Tomorrow! It was the 19th of July!

Half Way 03:44
I was almost running with the crowd but my head was like half way Took a walk the centre of this crowd but my head was like half way You can try run into the ocean but my head was like half way submerged You can try read your favourite novel but my eyes were like half way asleep Not something you should keep I don’t know where we’re going to But I’m kinda liking where we’re at I almost got lost there in the sand I guess my head was like half way I couldn’t part the waters with my hands not even just half way We should just drive to Barcelona hear the people sing the whole way ‘I don’t know where we’re going to’ And if you get tired of Barcelona we could just turn away Or stay a couple more days I don’t know where we’re going to But I’m kinda liking where we’re at Sometimes I feel exhausted Like my life plan isn’t going exactly the way I thought it should I tell myself to ignore this The path seemed straight but it’s more like a contortionist Full of awkwardness and wrong turnings Just write this off as another one to learn from And I feel like a small fish in the same like Life skills in school didn't live up to its name sake And I keep second guessing Stop guessing for a second and realise seconds are precious And just live to the maximum ‘Cause our lives start off as empty encyclopaedias They’d be better with facts in ‘em I don’t know where we’re going to But I’m kinda liking where we’re at

I tried to live every minute it was just taking hours I tried to climb a hundred mountains I guess I’m a coward Or maybe I just realised that we could make it round It all goes round I made a list of everything I know I should be doing Did I need to colour in that list? no So why is it that everything’s so big at 2am It all goes round It all goes Feeling my way
 I’m just feeling my way Isn’t it obvious Feeling my way I’m just feeling my way Isn’t it obvious Isn’t it obvious I wake up on what seems like an almost daily basis Grab a coffee and I sit and think of all the faces Doing the same thing but in San Jose they’re still asleep It all goes round I catch the train and it reminds me that this world is moving I’m sitting still but I am flying out of London Euston Seems in life you gotta run just to keep up with it It all goes round It all goes Feeling my way
I’m just feeling my way Isn’t it obvious Feeling my way I’m just feeling my way Isn’t it obvious Isn’t it obvious It all goes round it all goes Feeling my way
I’m just feeling my way Isn’t it obvious Feeling my way I’m just feeling my way Isn’t it obvious Feeling my way 
I’m just feeling my way
