Track Name: Keeping Time
Now I'm keeping time, or at least I'm learning how to
I'm taking flight, or at least I'm just about to
all the ways we can bruise are of use to us
all the things I have burnt, I have learnt their cost
and oh there's cracks in me
oh, the cracks in me
I've been braced by the ignition,
waiting for a command
Young girl, I'm tired of your wishing
and waiting has done me harm
I've done me harm

I was sinking in to lust like it was water
always juggling something I could not afford to
but I want someone who doesn't mind it when I stand,
I want someone who's funny looking when they dance
I wanna dance with them,
I wanna dance with them

I've been braced by the ignition,
waiting for a command
Young girl, I'm tired of your wishing
and waiting has done me harm

I want the time to pass so I am speeding down the road
I want the time to pass so I can move on and swallow this
and God, I want the time to stop so I don't have to grow old
Track Name: Pasta
My bedroom is a disaster
My dog has got kidney failure, failure
I've been sitting at the bar too much, kissing people in my head
and saying rubbish things I should not have said

And they're building things outside my window
Everywhere I look there are signposts, signposts
But I just sit in my house making noise for fun
and I'm not moving much, or proving much to anyone

I've been lost, I've been lost
I've been lost, I've been lost for a while
and I'm feeling tired
I've been lost, I've been lost
I've been lost, I've been lost for a while

And I spend so much time eating pasta
Though I'm probably allergic,
and other people seem to move so much faster
I wonder why I'm feeling lonely
When there's plenty of ways to be alone,
I guess I spent all of yesterday on my phone

I've been lost, I've been lost
I've been lost, I've been lost for a while
and I'm feeling tired
I've been lost, I've been lost
I've been lost, I've been lost for a while


How am I simultaneously on top of someone's pedestal
and also underneath someone else's shoe
Oh, isn't it a shame about the view

Can anybody climb aboard this structure I have made
to wrap myself around,
I promise that there is room
Oh, isn't it a shame about the view

I've been lost, I've been lost
I've been lost, I've been lost for a while
and I'm feeling tired
I've been lost, I've been lost
I've been lost, I've been lost for a while
But now I'm really trying

I've been lost, I've been lost
I've been lost, I've been lost for a while
but I'm really trying
I've been lost, I've been lost
I've been lost, I've been lost for a while
Track Name: Slow Mover
Friend, old friend, it’s 4am
What are we doing in the street?
I don’t want to buy fried chicken,
I wish I was going to sleep
I don’t want to kiss you underneath that flashing sign
What’s the hurry, we’re not ready, we’ve got plenty of time

Maybe we’ll get married
Maybe fall in love
Could you make me fall asleep when you’re holding me
Try set me on fire, try set me on fire, try set me on

There’s someone else but I twist all of his words and he twists mine
I’ll have to let him go, we sometimes fit but we always lie
He thinks we could make it work but only when he’s drunk
and you think you could help me swim, but I’ve already sunk

So maybe you’ll get married
Maybe fall in love
Could you go on and fall asleep, when you’re not holding me
Go get set on fire, go get set on fire,
go get set on

Friend, I am a slow, slow mover
Friend, I am a slow, slow girl
trying to be kind, kind, kinder
crawling in another world

But maybe one day we’ll get married
Maybe fall in love
Could you make me fall asleep when you’re holding me
Try set me on fire, try set me on fire, try set me on fire…
try set me on
