Track Name: Underneath The Cloud Cover
We have wished ourselves away
Too young to die and too old to play
You get hit so many times and you just lay down
Underneath the cloud cover

I am giving you my new face
In place of my love
In place of the place I've gone
I'll look for you when I reach the world
It could be a while, it blinks at us from the distance
