I’m still waiting, waiting here I’m still waiting Every day, every night In all of the places I found you In a corner of the Lost And Found you can hide But every day I can hear and see all the places you’ve been to When I am at the edge, you are by the wayside Now I’m on the brink of jumping in Only you can bring me every kind of story I’m holding on to you now ‘Cause you do, you move me You talk to me and understand how I feel And all I can hope is some day I can give something back to you So many times I thought that you’d walked away That you’d had enough, sick of all the frustration But if I was at the edge, you’d be by the wayside If I was all alone, you’d be with me Only you can bring me every kind of story I’m holding on to you now ‘Cause you do, you move me I don’t want to feel like anyone else I just want to feel like there’s more to this life than sitting on the highway And I don’t want to feel like anyone else I just want to feel like I did I just want to feel like I did You will always bring me every kind of story And I’m holding on to you now ‘Cause you do, you move me

Deep breath in, another slow breath out Time makes her stand and I lay myself down And all at once her leaves will start to fall The beauty swept aside as her arms reach for me You’re so close to the start, when you’ll come into being And if you learn to begin, it will all keep coming Let it in, let it all pour down on you And dance under the rain And time hangs heavy for this restless soul As she digs her feet into the dried up ground And as she brings what I lie waiting for The wind finds voice with the words she’s found You’re so close to the start, when you’ll come into being And if you learn to begin, it will all keep coming Let it in, let it all pour down on you And dance under the rain When did I fall down? Or did I never climb? Don’t you know? And I feel like I’m hanging on a line But I’ll take you at your word You’re so close to the start, when you’ll come into being And if you learn to begin, it will all keep coming Let it in, let it all pour down on you And dance under the rain

One of these days we’re gonna find our way home One of these days we’re gonna climb over that wall Over or under And we’ll be the lucky ones One of these days we’re going to run out of this place And they won’t see it coming One of these days we’ll leave together in the boot of a car Just you remember And we’ll be the lucky ones And we’re waiting for the day For a good day to disappear ‘Cause we don’t feel the same as all the other ones We don’t feel the same We can’t stay watching this place steal the best of us And lose what we could have One of these days we’ll see the colours We’ll hear new sounds and we’ll know everything One of these days we’ll be free from the shadows Free from a lens and free to do anything And we’ll be the lucky ones We’ll be the lucky ones And we’re waiting for the day For a good day to disappear ‘Cause we don’t feel the same as all the other ones We don’t feel the same We can’t stay watching this place steal the best of us And lose what we could have When you reach out, I will be with you Waiting where you are With hearts racing, who could stop us Who could hold us back that day ‘Cause we don’t feel the same as all the other ones We don’t feel the same We can’t stay watching this place steal the best of us And lose what we could have Safe to say, we won’t be the only ones We won’t be the only ones

What’s done is done, what’s through is through And I helped dig the hole I fell into I can feel the weight resting on my shoulders I don’t see a turning tide This is where it starts, the battle for the soldier This is where the future lies We are only flashes of the people that we used to be Forever living in history What’s done is done, what’s through is through And I can see where this is headed to ‘Cause I can see a light burning in the distance I can see a waving flag Been walking on my own, this road of least resistance Dwelling on the things I had We are only flashes of the people that we used to be Forever living in history It’s always been a fine line between hope and opportunity I’ve been living by the wrong time Can I find the day? Can I make it down? Staring at the scan lines, wasting what I never had Sifting through the pieces Can I find the day? Can I start again? Can I bring love? Broken people taking chances When will we learn how to let go? Broken People

Singing Out 03:31
I remember how you used to say You could bring the life back into my days Just by singing everywhere, in every place It’s easy to bring light back into a face So you would be singing out no matter where you were It’s a thin line that separates the looking and the lost There are times when I find myself Wishing to the world I was where you were But there’s no point in waiting for a better hand I don’t have your voice but I know the words So I will be singing out no matter where you are It’s a thin line that separates the looking and the lost And if these streams of words run dry If I should slip or wander I will not still my voice So I will be singing out no matter where you are It’s a thin line that separates the looking and the lost I will be singing out

Helsinki 04:38
I’ll chase a light from anywhere to any place Waiting for all traces of the memory to fade away I Should never have given up a single part Of who I was or who I am I want to be where you are I want to be where you are Helsinki I’ll take my time Take back my words and promises and start again And I will look upon this day as my release As my escape, as my one and only way to show Who I was and who I am I want to be where you are I want to be where you are Helsinki We’re at a distance I can’t work out how to bridge And we’ve gone too far to ever get it back again Who cares about the others? Who cares what the others do? I want to be where you are I want to be where you are Helsinki I want to be everywhere I want to feel everything I want to be everywhere

In my hands, a thousand words that never found their way out loud And in this house he was giving it up but he didn’t know how And if this is a sign of things to come If this is a sign It’s one line and one direction and nothing can ever change that He’s struggling to keep up, already been forgotten And his only way was to lose himself completely And this was a sign of things to come This was a sign of things to come This was a sign You can’t hold the night out But take your stand against the storm And you will find your way out of here And when it feels like the rain is seeping in And when it feels like the walls are no match for the wind You don’t have to run when you know where you have to go In my hands, a thousand words that never found their way out loud And in this house he was giving it up but he didn’t know how

The Mountain 03:39
There’s a silence on the mountain That is deeper than a memory It’s a silence that I’m hoping Will be louder than the dreams I’ve had But it’s too late, I’m already home I keep coming back here again And it’s just as real now as it ever was then I keep coming back here again But I can never change the way the story ends There’s a stillness with eyes open That I can’t find with them closed It’s a secret I don’t want to know I keep coming back here again And it’s just as real now as it ever was then I keep coming back here again But I can never change the way the story ends Time is not the answer It can’t heal all things Bathe a little longer In the foothills of the dream I keep coming back here again And it’s just as real now as it ever was then I keep coming back here again But I can never change the way the story ends

So you never quite found out What it would have felt like Or what it was to be Standing under a raincloud Or sitting with the lights out Waiting for someone Now you’re in my head You’re in my head now Like a creeping light That gets everywhere we are Underneath the raincloud Is where you’ll find me Standing still Rushed out Stones flying everywhere Light fills up the sky How long until this night is out? You gave me enough to know that I need it Now you’re in my head You’re in my head now Like the creeping lights Everywhere we are

May Avenue 03:48
Well it feels like the hours and the days Turned into months and years And the reason has faded away And time’s still running and I’m still waiting For lights from heaven to take me with them ‘Cause I don’t want to be alone anymore When your ship comes down I will be waiting for you A good living or even living well is not it’s own reward Without something to be living for And time’s still running and I’m still waiting For lights from heaven to take me with them ‘Cause I don’t want to be alone anymore When your ship comes down I will be waiting for you Soul searching leaves you nowhere But there’s someone to be found In all the worlds that must be out there And I will wait till you appear I’m making circles to guide you here I’ll be on May Avenue looking up And time’s still running and I’m still waiting For lights from heaven to take me with them ‘Cause I don’t wanna be alone anymore When your ship comes down I will be waiting for you I will be waiting for you

Fall Back 04:02
I can hear the sounds coming through Small things get louder in a quiet room I’m waiting for the world, to see it changing soon But it just keeps slipping away I can feel the words affecting you Almost makes sense of what I thought I knew It’s the things we feel that become the truth But it just keeps slipping away And I don’t want to lose all of the little things I don’t want to turn to someone new With an eye on the world I keep a distance and fall back I fall back from view They say that life can be so cruel We’re all just people but people are fools There’s always something to get us through But we just keep slipping away And I don’t want to lose all of the little things I don’t want to turn to someone new With an eye on the world I keep a distance and fall back I fall back And I will fall like a stone till I find my place Until I find the day Falling back is all that I can do And I don’t want to lose all of the little things I don’t want to turn to someone new With an eye on the world I keep a distance and fall back I fall back from view

about

Temple Scene are back with their first full-length album, ‘A Good Day To Disappear’, 11 new songs that draw on themes as wide as border escape and alien abduction to enfold the listener in a world that is both poignant and intensely personal.

‘A Good Day To Disappear’ draws on the duo’s years of studio work with the likes of U2, The Verve and Bassment Jaxx, distilling their experiences into their unique style of dark, atmospheric pop, deftly mixing infectious melodies with swirling electronica and guitars.
