Track Name: Tape Echo Dreams
You’ll never really know,
What it takes to be alone.
To breathe the open air
To think and dream yet no one cares
And slip down through the cracks.

The songs we sing about love
(The songs that we hold so close)
And the way a piano feels,
(The touch of the keys, the notes on the breeze)
Breaks your heart, just the notes in one bar
(A melody that reaches deep inside)
The needle is skipping the groove, again.

I dream a melody,
Forgotten but unearthed by me.
I listen to their songs,
The guitar fast, the rhythm strong.
It washes over me.

The songs we sing about love
(The songs that we hold so close)
And the way that the guitar bleeds
(The touch of the strings, tape echo dreams)
Can’t we be, playing live at Leeds?
(Just for the weekend, or the night)
It all seems so perfect for them, for me.
