Track Name: Last House In London
People rushing by
Can't take it anymore
No-one's looking
No-one's looking at me
But I hear them laughing
Oh I know they're laughing at me

I wanted
I wanted to get out
Get out and join them
But every time I try
There's too much noise
I've got to stop the noise

Can you see me now?
Are you laughing now?
I can't help you anymore
Welcome to the last house in London

One thousand faces
One thousand faces every hour
Pass by my window
I see them by my window
I see them smiling
No-one's smiling at me
I hear them
I hear them talking
No-ones talking to me
Know they're talking about me
There's too much noise
I've got to stop the noise

Can you see me now?
Are you laughing now?
I can't help you anymore
Welcome to the last house in London

Yeah
Can you see me now?
Are you laughing now?
I won't help you anymore
Welcome to the last house in London

Yeah
Can you see me now?
Are you laughing now?
I won't help you anymore
Welcome to the last house you'll ever...
Track Name: Escarpment
Feeling breathless as we make it to the summit
The sun is slowly setting changing colours all around
I never dared dream that this place would be so peaceful
That the view would be so beautiful
Or you would be here with me
And now I'm breathing like a fish that's out of water
I'm watching as you're laughing
Falling to the ground
I never knew we would be able to see quite so much
But I know this would mean nothing
If you were not here with me

Don't say you'll go
Don't say it's over
'Cos I won't
I won't listen

Looking down now at the path we took to get here
The rocks that blocked our way before seem nothing more than stones
I always hoped one day I'd climb up this escarpment
And when i finally made it
You would be here with me
And so we're lying on our backs as daylight fading
Still shining in the setting sun
Reaching for the stars
I know I've found someone who'll help me when I need them
Who'll keep me climbing higher
Who'll always be here for me

Don't say you'll go
Don't say it's over
'Cos I won't
I won't listen
Track Name: Darker Than Midnight
She walks wearily down the street as another nightshift ends
She thinks about what he said but she doesn't let it trouble her
No there's no way he could be right
No there's no going back tonight
She turns the final corner but then something has distracted her
She spins around and looks behind
But there no-one in sight
She tries to use her mobile phone
But there's no signal to be found
No there's no way this could be right
No something's going wrong tonight
She looks up just too late to see
That something moved above her

C'mon take me now
Won't you show me how
C'mon take me now

Those words are ringing in her ears
As she lies wide awake
She's given up all hope of sleep
But not because it's bothered her
No no-one will believe her
No she'll keep this to herself
So she heads back out to work again and doesn't say a word
Now she's counting down the hours
Until the night shift ends
He's been acting really tough
But she wont let it bother her
No she can't wait to leave work
No she cant wait tonight
Now she's standing in the street
And gazing at the stars

C'mon take me now
Won't you show me how
C'mon take me now
[C'mon and take me now]

Do you live in a town?
A town is full of buildings
Do you live in a town?
The streets have cars and buses and lorries
Do you live in a town?
The streets are full of people
Do you live in a town?
A town is full of buildings
Do you live in a town?

C'mon take me now
Won't you show me how
C'mon take me now
Track Name: View Of A Room
I want to live in a building with a name
I want to live in a street with a number
I want to live in the land of the buy one get one free
And I want to have a room
With a view of a room
Because I want to watch them living without me

Every time the phone rings
Every time the music plays
Every time the laughter starts
Every time the curtains close

I want to live in a city that never sleeps
I want to live in the state of the permanent state
I want to live in the fears of the people that I meet
And I want to have a room
With a view of your room
Because I want to know you before you know me

Every time the phone rings
Every time the music stops
Every time the laughter stops
Every time the curtains twitch
Track Name: Escarpment [I Won't Listen]
I won't listen

Don't say you'll go
Don't say you'll go

Don't say you'll go
Don't say you'll go

Don't say you'll go
Don't say you'll go

Don't say you'll go
Don't say you'll go
Don't say it's over
No
I won't
I won't listen
Don't say you'll go
Track Name: Darker Than Midnight [Darkest]
C'mon and take me now
[Streets are full of people]

[Streets are full of people]
Gazing at the stars
