Track Name: Bloom
Well I hit the road before daylight
And I caught the old and naked night
With the moon in bloom and every star in sight

And the music blurred to washed out strums
As I dreamed about the things to come
With the sky ablaze and shadows on the run

And I never would have thought I would end up here
I thought that there was nothing left to see
And I never would have thought it would take so long
Just to learn how to be free

Well the winter sun it came up slow
And the light was pale and settled low
As the mist grew on the restless car and road

And I never would have thought I would end up here
I thought that there was nothing left for me
And I never would have thought it would take so long
Just to learn how to be free

Well I used to think that we were doomed
All the good had came and left too soon
But now I see, in fact, we've just begun to bloom
Track Name: Circus Child
Should I hold my tongue?
Should I keep you guessing?
Cause after all it’s done
I have learnt my lesson

But there’s something different about this time
Something clearer about my mind
And now I’m leaning towards your dreaming
As all my dreaming runs wild, circus child

It’s been a long, long time
Since I left my window
But what was there to find
But stacks of broken arrows?

Now I’m burning the clothes I wore
Now I’m shedding the sights I saw
And I hope no spaces can hide your aces
Cause all my aces are played, circus babe

And so I say to you:
Let’s not force a meaning
Forget the lines we drew
Forget your teenage demons

We have nothing to state or prove
We have nothing to fear or lose
And I’ll be trying to catch you hiding
As all my hiding is seen, circus queen
