Track Name: Forever In Negative
Flash bright, trapped light
Holding you so tight
I envied its caress
Short sleeve style and
Regulation smile
Caught up in my camera's kiss

You are frozen there for me
With your gentle Celtic beauty I knew
All I wanted was you
And 'cos I never said
And 'cos you'd never see
You are forever in negative to me

You will always be there
Posing patiently and I could pretend
You could just be a friend
But there's cruelty in those memories now
Making me believe that I could still make it right
But I will never go back

So you are frozen there for me
As the gentle Celtic beauty I knew
All I wanted was you
And 'cos I never said
And 'cos you'd never see
You are forever in negative to me

Better if I never remember
Better if I never remember
So much you never could have known
Love could never bring us together
Love could never bring us together
Your image fading in the sun

So smile for me
Smile for me

Always frozen
Never free
Just a photograph of someone I knew
Just a moment of you
'cos when I looked in your eyes
I knew how it would be
You are forever in negative
Track Name: The Glass Arcades
Lives in transit
Arrive, depart
Crossing over
In temporary arcs
Wordless strangers
United here to wait
We linger in the glass arcades

Drinking in our daily measure
Of what will pass for pleasure
Hoping love could still arrive
We try to bide our time

Standing where they laid the lines
And built a shrine
To solitude in modern times
We are surrounded on all sides
But silent we remain
Even though we yearn to speak
We never try
We keep our distance by and by
But love is all our hearts desire
Within the glass arcades

O silence
Thy will be done
Keep us dumb
O silence
We are your faithful ones
Keep us dumb

Standing where they laid the lines
And built a shrine
To solitude in modern times
We are surrounded on all sides
But silent we remain
We will be the rails
Reflecting back the sun
In parallel we'll run and run
But closer we can never come
Unless we break away

So now we must stand and wait
Now we must stand and wait
Here in the glass arcades
Now we must stand and wait
Who knows if we'll be saved?
Here in the glass arcades

Come for me, why won't you come and take me?
Come for me, why won't you come and take me?
Come for me, why won't you come and take me?
Come for me, why won't you come and take me?
Come for me, why won't you come and take me?
Come for me, why won't you come and take me?
Come for me, why won't you come and take me?
