Track Name: Runner
finally found my tracksuit in a sea of dirty jeans,
tousled polyester cotton, i'd almost forgotten thee
started power-walking and i'm languishing again,
thinking about the neighbours staring, vow i will not care for them
because i'm true
and i'll run to the ocean, the only way i know to change your mind
i'll run until your heart is mine
trying to will my blistered feet and weary aching bones
know i've got to look the part now, know i've got to be alone
purgatory's started for the gluttony of past
i only want your longing looks, looking at my longer strides
and i'll run from the suburbs, the only way i know to change your mind
i'll run until your heart is mine
i shall only look at you with envy from asunder
for i am no adulterer and you are not my lover
Track Name: Dusk
synchronised but awkward teenage couple,
slightly pale on a grey day stroll
red tiled houses and a drying pavement,
slipped together to declare their love

an aimless shuffle to the shopping centre,
an air of whimsy, sunday afternoon
their laughter carries through the quiet back streets,
banishing any thoughts inopportune

crudely etched initials never fade away from that sunday
young romance and innocence immortalised before your eyes
daylight turns to dusk

an instant shared absurd, a moment's silence,
their mirth unstifled and their shoes undone
for a minute it seems life is perfect,
he shakes his head and then moves on

and when they finally reach their destination,
a cause forgotten as they overrun
a shrug of shoulders as they keep on walking,
it doesn't matter where you go

crudely etched initials never fade away from that sunday
young romance and innocence immortalised before your eyes
daylight turns to dusk
