Dylan Bowman Quite possibly one of the most beautiful and tender album's I've listened to in quite some time. I have yet to hear the last song in it's entirety without it bringing at least one tear to my eye.

"['Ache'] is immersed in the dreamlike quality of being overly familiar and unnervingly uncanny, where memories and wishes intermingle to form a vivid-yet-spectral landscape perpetually on the verge of evaporating."
– Wake The Deaf.

"'Dream'" is soft but powerful, a spellbinding single of twinkling instrumentals and Mead's angelic vocals."
– The Grey Estates.

Track Name: Dream
Always always on my mind, It’s always seeping through me
waiting waiting for my time, I’m waiting for a sign
Whisper whisper in my room, I’m walking under water
Nothing nothing in the dark, there’s nothing for us there

Don’t look back, don’t look back
Let it go, let it go
Don’t look back don’t look back
Let it go, let it go

Slowly slowly touch your hair, she slowly looks up at me
Laughing laughing in my car, her laugh is crystal clear
Dreaming dreaming on my own, I’m dreaming of our future
Wishing wishing all alone, I’m wishing for my home

Dont look back, don’t look back
Let it go, let it go
Dont look back don’t look back
Let it go, let it go
Track Name: Drown
I don’t know what I want
Drown baby drown, pour it pour it down

Here all alone and solitude suits me
Dreaming away the night while you’re out and
Living your life I guess it’s for the best
When mercury’s in retrograde ill be
Track Name: Float
A perfect storm here, it’s fading far away
Soon autumn leaves fall all around, all around
One magic moment but you’re so far away
You can’t remember living in my ghost town

And I fall, fall into his open arms
But I’m on my own, I’ll be my lucky charm
Once and for all, my fate is open wide
And now you hold your breath, and now you close your eyes
Track Name: Ache
All alone, all on my own

Get out of my head, there’s not room enough for two
I close my eyes to be alone, but I can’t escape from you
Where were you when I needed you, is this how you want it to be
Scully tells me to move on, mulder wants me to believe

Can you sleep at night with the weight of all your fears
Will the visions in your eyes ever disappear
Where were you when I needed you, is this how you want it to be
Scully tells me to move on, mulder wants me to believe
Track Name: Bloom
Summer in limbo, pass out in the shade,
Drunk in nostalgia, wait for it to fade

Summer in limbo, listen to the rain,
Cigarettes at sunset, dream of better days

Plant me in your garden, plant me in the sun
Let me drink your water and smile for everyone
Absence makes the heart grow, and it blooms and it blooms
Absence makes the heart grow, and it blooms and it blooms
Track Name: Love
Will my heart, will my heart cave in,
From this love, from this love you give

How do you fall with grace, Will this love fall in place
A hundred miles away, Will you be mine someday
Can I call late at night, Can I know this is right
This new love crashing in, Destroying from within

Can we let our guard down, Maybe this time around
Will you pull me aside, Kiss me in the moonlight
Where do we go from here, Will my doubt disappear
Unravel me with lust, This love I want to trust
Track Name: Fly
Let me swallow, your pride for you
Can I prove my love, and trade blood for blood

Fly away, fly away

The other cheek, swollen and pink
As I turn and smile, and away I fly

Fly away, fly away
Track Name: Run
Let’s start a new chapter, I’m on my way over
We could kill some time with a bottle of wine and
Don’t forget to write me when I’m in the city
I’m saying goodbye and I’m starting a new life

Can’t stop looking at you
In my rear view
Magic words left unsaid
Float through my head
Streaks of light flashing by
Against the night
This is a perfect day to run away

Forgiveness is the best revenge
Forgive me and forgive my sins
And I’ll forgive all of my friends
Forgive forgive and start again
Track Name: Fall
Don’t let, don’t let him in,
Don’t fall, don’t fall again

But when I looked up you were looking back at me
Your eyes made my heart jump in my throat suddenly
And it takes every part of me to look away
Hate I’m still wondering if you’ll be mine someday

And even though my future looks bright from here
Can’t help thinking with you it’d be brighter still
Trying so hard just to keep you off my mind
Waiting for the day when our stars align
Track Name: Kiss
In my far away castle, in cabin fever dreams,
I’m sorry for the things I’ve done but what did it all mean
I didn’t mean to hurt you but now i can move on
Each day feels like a century but soon i will be gone
Soon i will be gone

Don’t forget to kiss me goodbye

Memories melt like warm butter as my fate closes in
And I’ll miss you so fucking much but I won’t fall again
I’m nursing demons from the very bottom of my glass
Im changing for the better now but can I make it last

Don’t forget to kiss me goodbye
