Track Name: Atlas
Sunlight fades, when it comes it comes,
the autumn.
The leaves they change and all too soon
They've fallen.

And I can't wait,
And I cannot wait,
For the change.

I hope one day
I can find my way
With an atlas.
And I hope one day
I can find
My way home.

So I'll say goodbye to the girl I knew
And wander.
And I'll think no more on the things
I used to ponder.

And I will run,
And I will run,
Into the rain.

I hope one day
I can find my way
With an atlas.
And I hope one day
I can find
My way home.

I don't want to love her,
I just don't want to have to miss her.

And I don't want to hold on,
I just don't want to have to let go.

And I don't want to know her,
I just don't want to know myself.
Track Name: Floods
I didn't see the rain
But it came all the same
And I didn't see the flood
'Cos I ran into the woods.

I couldn't see the tree
Where you told it all to me
Because the river it had come
Half way to the sun.

The floods, they filled the sea,
As my heart it ceased to bleed.
And as the waters rise,
We can't believe our eyes.

Lights in the trees
And a lover on his knees,
In prayer to a song
That could show him what was wrong.

The water's running deep
And it's singing me to sleep
But I've never been as bright
As the river in the night.

The floods, they filled the sea,
As my heart it ceased to bleed.
And as the waters rise,
We can't believe our eyes.

Waterfalls run
And the weaker walls have gone.

The floods, they filled the sea,
As my heart it ceased to bleed.
And as the waters rise,
We can't believe our eyes.
