Track Name: Wild (Beach House cover)
My mother said to me I would get in trouble
Our father won't come home cause he is seeing double

Our windy, endless spring
Your eyes are so misleading
That's when your car pulls up
It's hood is black and gleaming

A little wine
You stole a smile
The earth is wild
You've got no time

Wild in our ways
What will you make it
Heartless to say
Go on pretending

Once chance to fall behind the lines that would not let you
Can I believe in how the past is what will catch you
Track Name: Nightcall (Kavinsky cover)
I'm giving you a night call to tell you how I feel
I want to drive you through the night, down the hill
I'm gonna tell you something you don't want to hear
I'm gonna show you where it's dark, but have no fear


There something inside you
It's hard to explain
They're talking about you boy
But you're still the same
Track Name: Fiction (The xx cover)
Fiction lyrics:
Fiction, when we're not together
Mistaken for a vision, something of my own creation
I wake up alone, with only daylight between us
Last night the world was beneath us, tonight comes too long
Were we torn apart by the break of day?
You're more than I can believe would ever come my way

Fiction, when we're not together
Mistaken for a vision, something of my own creation
Come real life, why do I refuse you?
Cause if my fear's right, I risk to lose you
And if I just might wake up alone
Bring on the night

Fiction, when we're not together
Mistaken for a vision, something of my own creation
An uncertain haze, how am I to tell?
I know your face all too well, still I wake up alone
Fiction, when we're not together
Track Name: Walking In The Air (The Snowman cover)
Walking in the Air song lyrics by Howard Blake for the Snowman movie soundtrack:
We're walking in the air
We're floating in the moonlit sky
The people far below are sleeping as we fly

I'm holding very tight
I'm riding in the midnight blue
I'm finding I can fly so high above with you

And walking in the air
We're dancing in the midnight sky
And everyone who sees us greets us as we fly

Suddenly swooping low
In a frozen sky
Nobody down below believes their eyes

We're walking in the air
We're walking in the air
Track Name: Eyes That Say I Love You (Beck cover)
Eyes That Say I Love You lyrics by Beck Hansen

When the night has gone cold and you're standing so alone
On the threshold of the rest of what you know
When the fever has died out, turned a flood to a drought
Left a chill inside that's growing like a ghost

You'll come running with eyes that say 'I love you'
You'll be blind, you'll be blind
And I won't know you, I won't see you
I won't need you, I won't love you anymore

When the poison from the wound slowly takes hold of you
And the only way not to drown is not to fight it
When you're falling down the stairs with your superstitions and despair
On a helter skelter fall to your demise

Oh you thought that you would never need what I could have given
If you'd given half a chance

Start again from the end, from beyond where you've been
You can't wash away your sins in shallow water
Cast a stone in a grave of the plans that you made
They can only go as far as you can throw them

You'll come running with eyes that say 'I love you'
You'll be blind, so blind
And I won't know you, I won't see you
I won't need you, I won't love you anymore
Track Name: Whispers in the Dark (Mumford & Sons cover)
You hold your truth so purely
And swerve not through the minds of men
This lie is dead

And this cup of yours tastes holy
But a brush with the devil can clear your mind
And strengthen your spine

But fingers tap into what you were once
And I'm worried that I blew my only chance

Whispers in the dark
Steal a kiss and you'll break your heart
Pick up your clothes and curl your toes
Learn your lesson, lead me home

Spare my sins for the ark
I was too slow to depart
I'm a cad but I'm not a fraud
I set out to serve the Lord

But my heart was colder when you'd gone
And I lost my head but found the one that I love
Under the sun
Under the sun

But my heart was colder when you'd gone
And I lost my head
Let's live while we are young
While we are young
While we are young
While we are young
