Track Name: We Are Here
Sharp as a childhood warning
And slick like magazine
Hot as a cardboard cup
And sweet as medicine
We're going to stray where the world won't want us
We're going to run out of every seam
We're going to build every stitch back up
Just to prove we've been

And we are here
We are here
We will always be here

High as an M1 hoarding
And slip like margarine
Hard as a curb-stone fall
And then street as anything
We're going to stray where the world won't want us
We're going to run out of every seam
We're going to build every stitch back up
Just to prove we've been

And we are here
We are here
We will always be here
Track Name: In A Dream
Somewhere in a dream
I know you remember me
Somewhere in a dream
I know you remember me
Oh, my darling boy
Oh, my darling boy

Somewhere in a dream
There's a warm and shining sea
And you will cling to me
And I to you eternally
Oh, my darling boy
Oh, my darling boy
Track Name: The Seventeen
Summer's in the hedgerow now
And I'm walking home to you
The silence in the morning light
Reminds me of the truth
And the seventeen years since I
Met you in our youth
Little did we know then how
Life would turn out

The summer's in the way
You turn your mind away
The summer's in the way
Your mood will twist and sway
The summer's in heart of all you do
The summer's in the heart of all you lose

Laid out in the midnight grass
With a star for every fool
That loved you from the minor league
Gave up their heart in school
But happy we little band
Devotedly uncool
Little did we know then how
Life would turn out

The summer's in the way
You turn your mind away
The summer's in the way
Your mood will twist and sway
The summer's in heart of all you do
The summer's in the heart of all you lose
