Track Name: Sparks
Shuddering, you were made, my love
To shake up my heart
Sputtering, you were made, my love
To light up the dark

I’ll give a little bit of my love to you
Is it what you want?
Give a little bit of my love to you
Is it what you want?

Oh, as we move along our way
We leave pieces as we go
Just moments for the dark
We’re shaking off the sparks
Oh as we move along our way
We leave pieces as we go
Just moments for the dark
We’re shaking off the sparks

Honestly, we were made, my love
To flee
Honestly, we were made, my love
To float on the breeze

I’ll give a little bit of my love to you
Is it what you want?
Give a little bit of my love to you
Is it what you want?

Oh, as we move along our way, we leave pieces as we go
Just moments for the dark, we’re shaking off the sparks
Oh, as we move along our way, we leave pieces as we go
Just moments for the dark, we’re shaking off the sparks

Oh, love, and as we move through time
We’ll leave a piece behind
What happens where we stand
Will happen here again
Our hearts, they carry on, they grow

As our hearts shake off sparks, they grow!
As our hearts shake off sparks, we go!
Track Name: Mirror Love
It’s amazing, in this mirror love
We’re holding on by the moment
It’s amazing, in this mirror love
Who we wanna be
Who we’re gonna be

Flash, spark
All of the times you broke my heart
Start
With each time we’re laughing

Well we fall apart when there’s no one around
And we’re moving off to a dying sound
We’re all just passengers waiting here to go down
Screaming, “Give me what I need!
Just give me what I need!”

It’s amazing, in this mirror love
We’re holding on by the moment
It’s amazing, in this mirror love
Who we wanna be
Who we’re gonna be

Stay back it isn’t safe,
Keep your heart intact,
Keep your eyes away

Cause we’re a mighty howl
We’re a body at bay
Screaming, Give us what we need!
Oh, just give us what we need!

But you fall apart when there’s no one around
And you’re moving off to a dying sound
You’re just a passenger waiting here to go down
Screaming, Give me what I need!
Oh, just give me what I need!

“Stay back,” the people say
It’s the same old fire, but the violence is growing

It’s amazing, in this mirror love
We’re holding on by the moment
It’s amazing, in this mirror love
We’re holding on by the moment

Well, we fall apart when there’s no one around
And we were moving off to a dying sound
We’re all just passengers waiting here to go down
Screaming, Give me what I need!
Oh, just give me what I need!

It’s amazing, in this mirror love
We’re holding on by the moment
It’s amazing, in this mirror love
We’re holding on by the moment

Oh, there will come a time when there’s no one around
‘Cause we were moving off to a dying sound
We’re all just passengers waiting here to go down
Screaming, Give me what I need!
Oh, just give me what I need!
