Intro
He slipped through the cracks of society's mold
found himself ready to explode
with no escape plan

Verse 1
Serendipity his reward system
feeds it loose change
high hopes in crucifix trees
his fingers follow
sorrow lines in leaves
He's stuck in a fug and can't get out
Wonders what it was
What it was
And what it is

Chorus
He has a hashtag heart
I've got a hashtag heart
Seems like everyone's hashing their hearts
Hashing their hearts
He has a hashtag heart
Breaking apart
Hashtag heart
Hashtag heart
Hashtag heart

Verse 2
He's a blur on the system
they want to rearrange
his hopes now squeeze
through hands hollow
fair game for thieves
He's stuck in a fug and can't get out
Wonders what it was
What it was
And what it is

Verse 3
Chances, he missed them
ripped in exchange
for swinging trapeze
hard pill to swallow
when he doesn't believe
He's stuck in a fug and can't get out
Wonders what it was
What it was
And what it is

Bridge
Of all the blood that flows
Wars mar the ground
Centuries overturn
Bury those hatchets deep
Knives tongue for eternal curse
Careful what you will
What you will
What you will
Earth listens
Never done gone
Never done gone
Never done gone
Careful what you will

Chorus
He has a hashtag heart

Intro
Beauty where I walked my youth
Sin marked landscape
Catalyst of thought
Hides as they chastise
Where I was baptised
In a challis now empty

Verse 1
This place doesn't remember me
I don't recognise these streets
My repatriated thoughts
That Art Deco hotel
Caring for the aged
As they slide sunset years
Counting cars out their window

Verse 2
Shadows on those maiden hills
Run long lines as I diminish into ether
Melancholy in tandem, hangs on a whisper
Insignificant satellite of earth
Time evolved violence for universe
Discarded galaxy a Mayan sacrifice
Plagues my soul no end now

Chorus
And the dreams hold on
Through distorted days
Dreams hold on
Dreams hold on
Delayed, delayed
Through distorted days
The last place I was young
The last place I was young
Dreams hold on
The last place I was young
I was young
I was young
Dreams hold on

Verse 3
Insignificant light, Redshift right
Second tier villain holds his hand out
Stripping energy from its blood route
Soft guilt dove is quiet
In his hand, still before flight
Contradiction wails Apache tears, white
Bruises on the green grass I loved

Bridge
My last dawn will blush a trillion stars
Moon light, moon dust
I'm a consequence of all this
A light that will join the dark
Where I have no hold and there is no end
My last dawn will blush a trillion stars

Chorus
And the dreams hold on
Through distorted days
Dreams hold on
Dreams hold on
Delayed, delayed
Through distorted days
The last place I was young
The last place I was young
Dreams hold on
The last place I was young
I was young
I was young
Dreams hold on

Last Place I Was Young

Verse 1
Darling Darling, down by the harbour
twisted ropes ravaged by hopes
fury of the ocean
draws me to her
heave ho, heave ho

Verse 2
Souls quicken to foreign shore
savour long for solid ground
drown in rum
barrels roll in
heave ho, heave ho

Chorus
Darling Darling
Down by the harbour
Solid ground beneath my feet
East Indies reminisce
Darling Darling
Down by the harbour
Darling Darling
Down by the harbour
Darling Darling
Down by the harbour

Verse 3
Sky and sea, saw a thousand years
lashing waves, southern storms
shiver me timber
burn to cinder
heave ho, heave ho

Verse 4
Countless men sail close to death
glimmers of hope on salt wash deck
open your doors
to heaven's arms
heave ho, heave ho

Bridge
Head above water
Anchor my heart
Seven seas depart
Sun, sea, salt
Anchor my heart
Anchor my heart
Seven seas depart
Anchor my heart
Anchor my heart

Chorus
Darling Darling
Down by the harbour
Solid ground beneath my feet

Down, down, I fall
Steep stone walls

Ancient sea will falter

Verse 1
Could've been a better night, as the bitter wind blows, and I watched you turn and walk
towards the street light in the distance where the road turns right
As I run to you
As I run to you

Verse 2
All the cars that line the street are second hand at least, and that cigarette you smoked
joins the gutter where you turned and you waved and waited
As I run to you
As I run to you

Chorus
Looking in
Shadows claim
Through the bitter wind
Down streets of this city
As I run to you
England's soul was wrong
As I run to you through the bitter wind
Forbidden as I run to you
Forgiven as I run to you
Mind clear as I run to you
Looking in
Looking in
Looking in
As I run to you

Bridge
On this bitter night when England stung
Our eyes blind
Beaten guitars sing
City's inner heart
Devours us
As lovers immortalise
Through heat
Heat of our bodies
Heat of our youth
Heat of truth

Chorus
Looking in
Shadows claim
Through the bitter wind
Down streets of this city

Intro
Sick of the straight and narrow
I was ripe for you
right for you

Verse 1
Held your own in the karaoke club
Painted innocent, on your cheeks
Fools falling deep for their chance
Serenade you over drinks
Love's a slippery slope

Chorus
Tiger moth in fragile skies
I got mixed up in your chrome eyes
Stainless steel, beaten brass
Chrome eyes, chrome eyes
Tiger moth in savage skies
I got messed up in your chrome eyes
Yeah, yeah
Your chrome eyes, chrome eyes, chrome eyes

Verse 2
Our eyes met like a lightning bolt
Tattooed mood my body over
Mind followed, impossible
Resistance denied noble
You were so irresistible

Bridge
Separate fact from fiction
Separate fact from fiction
Stainless steel, beaten brass
No apologies, cold, hard
Your sunken room
In the setting sun
What have I done?
What have I become?

Chorus
Tiger moth in fragile skies

Verse 1
Brave me over
I’m coming home with you
We’ll walk along the river winding to the surging sea
An Easterly breeze will cool us
Dance about the leaves
Eucalyptus sage green

Chorus
I’m coming home with you
Said and done
Said and done
Only one, only one
No more to say
Said and done
I’m coming home
Coming home with you
Said and done
Said and done

Verse 2
Save me over
I’m coming home with you
We’ll dance to midnight to whatever music is lying around
The pulse of the rhythm moves us
Thread bare carpet
Egyptian fade scarlet

Bridge
Nothing don’t come easy and easy slips away
So take it while you can
Tomorrow isn’t planned, everything can change
Beauty bound and beauty broken
Had your chance, now it’s taken
Easy slips away
Easy slips away

Chorus
I’m coming home with you
Said and done
Said and done
Only one, only one
No more to say
Said and done
I’m coming home
Coming home with you
Said and done
Said and done

End
I’m coming home with you
Take your chance
Take your chance
Take your chance
Take all your chances with me

Paris on Tuesday
It’s a blue day for sure
Paris on Tuesday
A blue, blue day
Paris on Tuesday
You’re not here anymore
Not here
Not here
It’s a blue day for sure

Verse
All the places we’ve been
Places we planned
Seem so pointless
Now you are not here
London on Friday
Berlin, forgotten when
Sydney, soaking in sun
New York, sometime when
Norway, Denmark
On the cards
Switzerland on my mind
Oh, oh, oh, Tokyo
Can’t forget you
Can’t forget you
Can’t forget you

Hook
Came to my senses when you entered
Came to my senses
My senses inside
Senses that I hide
My senses abide
Deep down inside
Came to my senses
Came to my senses
Come share my senses
Come share my senses

Verse
All the places we’ve been
Places we planned
Seem so pointless
Now you’re not here
London on Friday
Berlin, forgotten when
Sydney, soaking in sun
New York, sometime when
Norway, Denmark

Switzerland on my mind
Oh, oh, oh, Tokyo
Can’t forget you
Can’t forget you
Can’t forget you

Bridge
All those cities so far away
You have gone, I’m alone
In this room of honeycomb walls
Hopes and dreams subside
All those cities
So far away
All those cities
Are in yesterday
All those cities
All those cities

Chorus
Paris on Tuesday
It’s a blue day for sure
Paris on Tuesday
A blue, blue day
Paris on Tuesday
You’re not here anymore
Not here
Not here
It’s a blue day for sure
