Track Name: Opposable Thumbs
Are you there?
Watching me fall
Into your arms
Just like I hoped you would
Just like I hoped you would

We’ve come so far
In such short space of time
And I can’t even tell you how many times I’ve tried to rhyme your name
Into this song
I’ll scream it out loud
And a symphony will blare
Because you’re what this song is all about

So hold my hand
It’s always summer somewhere
And I’ll thank life that I’m so lucky to be given this day
To hold your hand
With my opposable thumb
And the sun it rises somewhere
And my tongue has got so numb

Because we’ve talked
All through the day
Your hands have got so cold tonight
But I’ll warm them up
Easily

The earth spins around
And so does the moon
My blood pumps through my arteries
As I sit next to you

And we’ll sit
And we’ll talk
We’ll exchange funny stories and I’ll love you even more

But you deserve a band
To carry this song forth
But it’s just me and my guitar
Just like it's always been before

So hold my hand
It’s always summer somewhere
And I’ll thank life that I’m so lucky to be given this day
To can hold your hand
With my opposable thumb
And as the sun it rises somewhere
And my tongue has got so numb

Because we've talked
Into the night
Your hands have got so cold
But I can warm them up
Just right
Track Name: Brother
Brother, you're more to me
You fight a fight that the world cannot see
Where you are right now,
That's where I want to be
I'm just sat by the sea

I think I'll go and hide in a tree
It doesn't come to me that easily
Facing fears is one thing
But to fight them every week
Brother, you're bursting at the seems

You've got to hold me down
And throw me away
Cause I don't want to be famous today
You've got to write on me
All of my sins
In all my favourite colours
And teach me how to win

I'll grab a bud and sit next to you today
Maybe grab some conversation space
But you're so in the clouds
With everything you say
Brother, just listen to me

Cause every time I breathe I start to fall asleep
Just a little bit more
And every time I blink I start to think and then I fuck it up a little bit more

You've got to hold me down
And throw me away
Cause I don't want to be famous today
You've got to write on me
All of my sins
In all my favourite colours
To teach me how to win

I am just another animal
I take a bite before my mighty fall
I stand tall like a bear
But I need friends like a wolf
Brother, I will not let you fall

Long times staring out into the sea
There's nothing at the bottom of this bottle but me
I seem so cavalier
But I'm mesmerized by monkeys
Brother, you're more to me

You've got to hold me down
And throw me away
Cause I don't want to be famous today
You've got to write on me
All of my sins
In all my favourite colours
And teach me how to win

Brother, you're more to me
Brother, you're more to me
Brother, you're more to me
Brother, you're more to me
