harumphus I saw TYAY live in Inverness at the XPONorth festival. Blown away by the live performance. I've since had a chance to make my way through the Gestures album. Awesome! All the way through. Favorite track: Escher Drawn.

Track Name: Every Atom Of Me
Oh heart, racing in the silence, it loved with such violence only it only it could, not face the truth.
A mind, set for stormy weather, emptiest of gestures on display on display so, the heart can see.
Two sides, parallel in distance, pray that you don't miss this chance to be chance to be saved, as the day breaks.
Track Name: Escher Drawn
If only for a time, I've been waiting so long oh so long.
Don't you leave me where I lie, I've been sleeping too long far too long.

Each and every time I get lost, when I wake up among your theories and your plots. Of relativity these Escher drawn thoughts if this is where you end I hope to god its where I begin, I'm singing at your door.

Love me for a lifetime, leave me stranded on the rocks? But I won't go, I won't go. I keep seeing ships they've come to take you away for all I know, all I know.

Fill my nights with perilous thoughts and I'm not trapped, I'm just caught between worlds. My head is pacing the corridor while my heart becomes a lion makes for hospital doors, oh to be free again.

Love me for a lifetime, leave me stranded on the rocks? But I won't go, I won't go. I keep seeing ships they've come to take you away for all I know, all I know.

If only for a time, I've been waiting so long oh so long.
Don't you leave me where I lie, I've been sleeping too long far too long.

In one instant, flowers burst and the sun will melt the snow again.

Love me for a lifetime, leave me stranded on the rocks? But I won't go, I won't go. I keep seeing ships they've come to take you away for all I know, all I know.
Track Name: Whispers
I felt the wind, coming over her like a song I pretend I don't see the clouds, It's only us now. Faithless convinced, Heaven knows sure as Hell there's nothing after this. Agree to disagree, or stay here with me.

And we'll make a start, and just pull apart other things. Might break a few hearts, but they won't be ours and isn't that what counts?

Honest to God, raised with ignorance unaware of what goes on behind the closed door, not any more. Whispers make sure, to do the rounds until the truth can come about no matter what's lost. Well who weighs the cost?

And she tries so hard, remembers the arms that held her close. So scared of the dark, but he was the light in her heart of hearts.

Lets go somewhere I want to go, Lets go somewhere.
Lets go somewhere you want to go.

And we'll make a start, away from the places of hurt, you flourish and flower, your heart starts to swell till it's full.
And we'll make a start, with little regard for other things, might break a few hearts, but they won't be ours and isn't that what counts?
Track Name: Before The Wind
Is there happiness where you are? Being sold the fear by the voices from afar. Can't you see they all play a part? They care not for you, machine men, with machine hearts! Is your happiness built to last? Colours cut and dyed in the wool and on the mast, talk of promises made of glass. I can spare a thought for the seasons as they pass.

You've been waiting oh so long for the winter, will that bring it around? The leaves are yet to leave the tree's think now, of now.

Sing to me so I don't feel alone, and make it something delicate, or out of key, or forced. I care not if the words are wrong they live with me, let me hear the music in these hopes. There can be no divide.

The horizon brings the false dawn. There's a man on screen with his hand upon his heart telling me I need to believe, and I ask myself "Am I that naive?".

To concede his honesty is a given, ever given not earned. The truth will out, I'll come around if you, won't you.

Sing to me so I don't feel alone, and make it something delicate, or out of key, or forced. I care not if the words are wrong they live with me, let me hear the music in these hopes. There can be no divide.

Where's your heart? Where's your home? Though the compass dial might try its best I'll know, where to go, and the cross I'm on will land where it wants (in my soul).

Sing to me so I don't feel alone, and make it something delicate, or out of key, or forced. I care not if the words are wrong they live with me, let me hear the music in these hopes. There can be no divide.
Track Name: Blueprints
If I could draft a blueprint of what was, could we conceal our secrets in the walls? That hide behind the pictures in their frames, of strangers who believed in fun and games.

Over and over I wait. For you to tear me down.

We might have tread the floorboards in this place (This house was never home). I drawn the blinds for fear I'll see your face (This face that's not my own). Come shatter all the windows slam the doors (I know you love the noise). Just to break the silence (A tidal wave of sorts).

Over and over I wait. For you to tear me down.
(I'm asking, not asking, for your forgiveness. If you need it, I'll be it, I'll be a witness. We're moving, I'm moving, want to me move in my friend, the wrecking ball?).

A bedroom, chalk outline where we drew all the sweetest shapes from time to time. A household, filler in the keyholes, empty though your absence haunts these halls.
Track Name: Every Atom Of You
If all your luck runs out (Don't go holding your breath).
I'll still be yours don't have a doubt (You seem sure of yourself).
When all has been and gone (Well does that include you?).
I'll kiss the dirt so you feel tall.

Cause' you are, the silence, the stars, and you are the end of me.

Just to see your face (Tell me what would you do).
Walk under ladders, cut my brakes (What a fool thing to say)
And my last coins I'd spend (But will that be enough?).
Who needs to eat, or room to rent?

Cause' you are, the silence, the stars, and you are the end of me.
Track Name: Little Sky
If a young man fights his corner, leaves no room for growing old. While she's smiling like the summer, with her eyes like truth be told. I could be...

Violent ocean, calmest breeze, smiling gently to myself while the world is on its knees. High as mountains, tall as trees, never swallowing the wind cause' it's at the back of me.

So I go, make you hurt for all the lost time. Every song that's in this heart of mine says I can lead you on. These idea's are built from smoke, come save me from all I know.

Though your name can sound like history, Know I hope for by and by. Say your name before I kiss you, underneath our little sky. You could be...

Bold and effortless, shyest thing, say you cannot take the world or the sorrow that you've seen. So I feign indifference, plot and scheme, how to make you feel above everything that's ever been.

So I go, make you hurt for all the lost time. Every song that's in this heart of mine says I can lead you on. These idea's are built from smoke, come save me from all I know.

Each cornerstone it's, a place in time. Do you notice this heart of mine singing?

So I go, make you hurt for all the lost time. Every song that's in this heart of mine says I can lead you on. These idea's are built from smoke, come save me from all I know.
Track Name: Atlas
Don't need to win but you know that I hate losing, what a stalemate. It's worth the effort well that's solely dependant on the time it takes. Oh deepest insecurities they come straight to the surface when my friends speak (They still speak). Make way for self indulgence please, I'm selling skeletons to you directly (They're dirt cheap).

Oh how this fragile heart wait's it's turn (Lover, don't leave me alone).
Lungs filled with fire that just won't burn (Only want to find a home).

I see a guiding light it sits just out of reach on the horizon. I dream of only you but lets not go forgetting bout' my nightmares (Or how I'm so scared). Oh brother cutting father deep, the corner where my mother weeps for their love (It's a lost love). Blank canvas come be good to me with endless road and roaring sea just this once (I'll be long gone).

Then I but came along quiet things (I can see us growing old).
Come keep me grounded and give me wings (You already feel like home).

What if? Love is a lions roar, deafening caterwaul, kaleidoscope of sorts? This life could but be a passing dream, so it has always been so it will always be.

What if? love is a lonely shore, something to lead you down by way of letting go? They tell me "love is a risk you see", strange curiosity, a window to the soul.
