Track Name: Astronomy
Let's leave the city and get out where the sky is
Almost dark
There may be life on Mars, but when I see the stars
I always think
About how you gave me this
Beyond the Milky Way is there a galaxy
Where we will be ok?
Baby, we will be ok

I believe that what you gave to me
Is bigger than just this girl
I want to take it to the world
I may be naive but I can recognize
Heaven fallen from the sky
Down around our feet

Astronomy, Astronome

We've been given signs in this precious life
Who can sleep
In a bed of apathy?
And now you've seen me cry, so you know
That is my family
Killing them is killing me

I believe that what you gave to me
Is bigger than just this girl
I want to take it to the world
I may be naive but I can recognize
Heaven fallen from the sky
Down around our feet

Astronomy, Astronome

Gravity is holding all the stars
In the galaxy
So they never fall
And love is in our hearts
So we never fall
Love is in our hearts
So we never fall

Astronomy, Astronome

Let's leave the city and get out where the sky is
Almost dark
Track Name: Chickadee
Chickadee, you make me so happy
You have a voice like melting snow
Chickadee, you taught me how to sing
Even when winter brings the frozen cold
I can hear your tiny voice singing

Don’t let a moment go without rejoicing
Don’t let a moment go without singing
Dee da dee da dee da dee da dee, dee dee dee da da dee

Chickadee, you’re flying low
Over many kinds of snow
And some are light, but some so hard
Some so bright, you can’t see that far
But still I hear, way across the yard
Your tiny voice rejoicing

Don’t let a moment go without rejoicing
Don’t let a moment go without singing
Don’t let her go, don’t let her go
Don’t let her go
Without singing
Track Name: Neighbour
Neighbour

I am your neighbour, I live just next door
I know you move the snow and park your car
I’ve never seen the inside of your walls
And I don’t think of you that much at all

‘Cause I’ve been taught not to speak to strangers
And you’ve been told to watch your back
How will we make it through the ages
When we don’t even know the neighbours?

I inhabit orange, you reside in green
I have a mountain, you have just one bean
I’ve never seen the inside of your walls
And I don’t think of you enough at all

‘Cause I’ve been taught not to speak to strangers
And you’ve been told to watch your back
How will we make it through the ages
When we don’t even know the neighbours?

Articulate, you’re full of it, have you ever been outside?

‘Cause you’ve been taught not to speak to strangers
You’ve been told to watch your back
How will we make it through the ages
When we don’t even know the neighbours?

We’ve been taught not to speak to strangers
And we’ve been told to watch our backs
How will we make it through the ages
When we don’t even know the neighbours?
Track Name: I Will Come Back
It's a cold Canadian winter
The wind lies to your face
As you stand on the landing pad
Where he took your breath away

When skies are grey, will you wait?
Wind chime of hope, balloon of faith

I will come back
I will come back

So early Saturday morning
Come and dress your little girl
And walk out on the pipeline
To make a snow angel

When skies are grey, will you wait?
Wind chime of hope, balloon of faith

I will come back
I will come back
I will come back
I will come back

The Stars seem brighter
When you are afraid
The stars, they seem brighter
When you are afraid
They're bouncing off the light inside you
The light that never fades.

I will come back
I will come back
I will come back
I will come back
