Track Name: Summer Day
Got my head in the sun,
And I’m blind for what’s to come.
It could all be undone.
When the right feels so wrong.

But I’m the sea and the tide,
That binds us together,
But I’m not able to move,
Cause I’m stuck,
To the things I was,
Before I fell in love with a summer day.

With my head in the sun,
The world seems alright.
I got enough on my mind,
Just hold me tight.
I know it for sure,
This is a perfect day.

And please don’t take my love away.

Got my head in the sun,
Lift we me up to where I belong.
And I know, I know, I know and I know,
We’re flowers, clasped till we’re gone.


And please don’t tell me,
I was wrong all the time.

Got my head, got my head,
Got my head, head in the sun.


And please don’t take my love away.
Track Name: Cigarette Smoke
You can’t look over your shoulder.
You can’t go the same way back.
Cause baby you still don’t know?
Admission bites you in the neck.

You’ve done it before,
Don’t tell me you didn’t.
You wanted more,
Enough is too few.
You think I’m lost,
But where is your map?
Find yourself the costs,
Of all your steps.

You’ve gone too far this time.
And you’ve overstepped another line.
But if you’d raise your hand,
Maybe I could see where you stand.

Please tell me what you wanted,
Were it my eyes that looked at you?
If you’d asked you could have them both.
Don’t worry, I’m just in love with you.

You know what you say,
Don’t pretend to be drunk.
You’ve got it all in the head,
But are you the junk?
Cigarette smoke,
Hoarse voices in the lounge room.
On your nose is coke,
As you attended the bathroom.


Thinking of you is what hurts,
Forgetting you is what helps.
Holding you is what reminds,
That losing you is what hurts.
