Track Name: Myra - not so sad and existential
And I can't see the stars
Without the darkness too
But that don't mean the days are bad
I think I'm just confused

The night's are dark
The days are bright
The moon relies on sun for light
The skies are grey but some prefer it when it rains

In the morning the light shines through my window
I feel the warmth on my face
In the afternoon on my way home
I watch the skies change colour

And as the light fades away
We say goodbye to another day
And as the dark's caving in
We watch the stars reappear

And they tell us
It'll be alright
You'll make it through the night
You are not alone

*Crazy frog part this is an in joke we had, it's really quite poetic*
Track Name: Myra - stones
I know it's hard to breathe here
I know it's hard to live like this
Unsure of what we mean here
Repeating day to day routine

With stones in our hearts
Trapped in our throats
Stuck on this road to nowhere we know
Held by our fears
Stuck on this one way road

We cross off dates and numbers
Counting down to this again
Make promises for times ahead
Even though real time is dead
We cross off dates and numbers

There's stones in our hearts
Trapped in our throats
Stuck on this road to nowhere we know
Held by our fears
Stuck on this one way road

What so we do here
To fix this big old mess
What can we do here
If time is in our heads

Stones in our hearts
Trapped in our throats
Stuck on this road to nowhere we know
Held by our fears
Stuck on this one way road x2
Track Name: Queenie - maybe someday
What good does it make me
If I don't have a plan
What good does it make me
If this all makes no sense

And you are who I want to be

Maybe someday I'll be fine
But maybe that day the sky falls down
So don't hurt me now (hurt me now)
Don't hurt me now (hurt me now)
And some of these days they never end
And some of these days we can't pretend
So don't hurt me now (hurt me now)
Don't hurt me now (hurt me now)

Oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh
Oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh
Oh oh oh oh oh oh ooooooh
Oh oh oh oh oh oh ooooooh

Find a reason to be and
Finally I can see it
Hopes and dreams, I can feel it
Callings calling for me

And you are who I want to be

Maybe someday I'll be fine
But maybe that day the sky falls down
So don't hurt me now (hurt me now)
Don't hurt me now (hurt me now)
And some of these days they never end
And some of these days we can't pretend
So don't hurt me now (hurt me now)
Don't hurt me now (hurt me now)

And you are who I want to be
Track Name: Queenie - 2262
I walked to the shore
Something I couldn't be
Felt, so many times before
But now I'm out to see
And you, standing there
Watching me as I built
Sandcastles that crumbled down
And washed away my guilt

I'm crashing like a wave
Ripping like a tide
In every single way
Every single time
Oh oh oh ohohoh ohoh oh
Every single time
oh oheohoaheoheew
Every single time

They say that lightning
Never strikes twice
So when you said were coming back
Was is all just lies
And you, waiting there
Inside and outside torn
Silent, still, quiet, tranquil
The calm before the storm

I'm crashing like a wave
Ripping like a tide
In every single way
Every single time
Oheohfoehehoho
Every single time
Ohreogiergohohoho
Every single time

My ship, my wreck
My mistakes on deck
Won the fight, lost the war
Left to die on the ocean floor
x3

I'm crashing like a wave
Ripping like a tide
In every single way
Every single time
Ohohohohohohohohohhhhh
Every single time
Oh oh oh oh oh hohohoh
Every single time
Track Name: Queenie - maybe someday (slow piano version)
What good does it make me if I don't have a plan
And what good does it make me if this all makes no sense
And you are who I want to be

And maybe someday I'll be fine
But maybe that day the sky falls down
So don't hurt me now (hurt me now)
Don't hurt now (hurt me now)
And some of these days they never end
And some of these days we can't pretend
So don't hurt me now (hurt me now)
Don't hurt me now (hurt me now)

OHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH
oh oh

Find a reason to be
And finally, I can see yeah
Opium dreams, I can feel it
Callings calling for me
And you are who I want to be

And maybe someday I'll be fine
But maybe that day the sky falls down
So don't hurt me now (hurt me now)
Don't hurt now (hurt me now)
And some of these days they never end
And some of these days we can't pretend
So don't hurt me now (hurt me now)
Don't hurt me now (hurt me now)

And you are who I want to be

But I'm not who I want to be, now
Who am I to seek out
What is life but certain doubt
And days come as they go
And years, they leave a toll
But five months, two letters I'll hold
And won't let go
I won't let go
