Track Name: Fight Tonight
Fight Tonight

When we fell in love I laid a trail of bread crumbs
Scattered in those old wounds leading to your heart
For when the walls come down

Now we're growing old I feel my heart grow colder
The streets all feel the same now, the avenues are tame
The walls are coming down

I don't want to fight tonight, but I feel it's coming

Now I fear I drought, I'm tasting tired in your kiss
I sleep facing the window, I see it in your eyes
The walls are coming down

I don't want to fight tonight

You and I we're dancing somehow without moving our feet
We're battered and bruised, we're losing our way in the world tonight
A warning shot goes out
I don't want to fight tonight

When we fell in love I laid a trail of bread crumbs
Scattered in those old wounds leading to your heart
For when the walls come down
Track Name: SOS
SOS

We slept in blankets on the beach last night
As they searched for us through the restless dawn light
We'd been playing games of truth or dare
I send an SOS

I thought it right to give you one last call
To say goodbye - for what it's worth I'm sorry
She's been hanging on by tooth and nail

Give me one thing, give me just one thing
Give me one thing that I can rely upon
I send an SOS

If you had a window into people's souls would you stop and stare, or would you turn away?
She's been hanging on by tooth and nail
I send an SOS

We stole a car, drove it to the beach
Watching her undress as a silhouette
Wrote a letter in the soft white sand
As the light house turned we dove in darkness

Give me one thing, give me just one thing
Give me one thing that I can rely upon

Take this longing from my heart
My heart can only take so much of this

I send an SOS
