Sideline Kid 05:16
sideline kid don't pull any punches it's not forever you can weather this sideline kid don't give up on yourself you've got so much strength you carry oceans sideline kid the tumult persists i know you burn like a sea of melted suns all you are all that you could be stretched in the distance like great blue oceans cos you carry oceans you carry oceans hey kid! you can wear what you wanna don't let 'em tell you you're not the same they're all just building boxes to replace the old ones so nothing's changed we all need to agree to disagree until it counts we all wanna be free to be you & me let's work it out!
Touch/Keep 03:53
all i know is that you want to touch me to keep me all i know is that you want too much for one person all i know is that you want to touch me, to keep me so safe! i know you couldn't help it wouldn't hurt me wouldn't harm me wouldn't harm me... endless nights if i could i would keep them same as old times before the glow before the blows we took the seconds counting i could stay awake a little longer i could take another shot with you ask me not to go but my mind takes me far away when i am i'm with you back to the point when you hadn't crossed the line yet and i'd bury the ghosts but it doesn't work so easy, no all i know is that you want to touch me to keep me all i know is that you blew your chance to touch me to keep me half person won't complete me
All Together 04:04
i won't say another word until you admit it you liked me best when i was soft you were the first one i felt truly, madly, deeply now you won't see me again and i'm best, i swear on my own we're on our own i've set off on something bigger than you and you still spend a night each week curled in your bathtub we both care too much to let our full battered guards down so we meet up at 10 o'clock with different people, in different towns on our own we're on our own altogether altogether all together i'm not so bold as to pretend i got here all alone trace back little chips and scents to right where i left you i'm not sorry that we met not sorry it's over cos i've still got room left for me yet on our own we're on our own we're on our own altogether altogether all together all together


this ep is for anyone who's ever felt like a sideline kid.
take care of each other. <3
