Track Name: Adult
Adult by Cat Bear Tree

I’m so sad to have broken your heart.
I wish I could offer you comfort, make you feel understood
Cos we talked and we’ve talked and we’ve talked and still
You say you have no idea why this is happening

Being an adu-du-dult is difficult
Sometimes I can’t look after myself

I sit back, arm self with paper and pen
In defence against the impending end of another friendship I can’t save
Course we’ve fought and we fought and we’ve fought until
We get lost in it, we lose everything
We felt close to heart, we felt head to toe

Being an adu-du-dult is difficult
Sometimes I can’t look after myself
Being an adu-du-dult is difficult
Sometimes I can’t look after myself

And I am struck
(You still turn me on you know, you still bring me up)
And I am struck
(You still turn me on you know, you still bring me up)

And I am cut by your lack of emotion
And I am struck by your fearless devotion

You still turn me on you know, you still bring me up
You still turn me on you know, you still bring me up
You still turn me on you know, you still bring me up
You still turn me on you know

Being an adu-du-dult is difficult
Sometimes I can’t look after myself
Being an adu-du-dult is difficult
Sometimes I can’t look after myself
Track Name: In Actual Fact
In Actual Fact by Cat Bear Tree

Living with a conflict over your shoulder
Sounds move in ever closer
You’re never too far behind an in comprehendible sight
To face, to survive when you can’t fight
For yourself, or your country
I don’t have a country I just live in here
My identity is not to be enforced
My identity is me

What’s you name, if my name is the same
How do we differentiate?
What’s you name, if my name is the same
How do we differentiate?
What’s you name, if my name is the same
How do we differentiate?
What’s you name, if my name is the same
How do we differentiate?

It kills, like nothing you have seen before
Limbs left out on the street side
No rules on these routes - a coo run on adrenaline lines
Cuts through the sound of the city walls falling
Spread out over the country
As we pour out into neighbouring countries
Displacement of families, faces and histories
Lost identities
Lost identities

What’s you name, if my name is the same
How do we differentiate?
What’s you name, if my name is the same
How do we differentiate?
What’s you name, if my name is the same
How do we differentiate?
What’s you name, if my name is the same
How do we differentiate?

In actual fact, in actual fact
It’s not for me to say, it’s not for me to say
Who goes, who stays, who knows, which way..
In actual fact, in actual fact
It’s not for me to say, it’s not for me to say
Who goes, who stays


What’s you name, if my name is the same
How do we differentiate?
What’s you name, if my name is the same
How do we differentiate?
What’s you name, if my name is the same
How do we differentiate?
What’s you name, if my name is the same
How do we differentiate?
Track Name: Arm's Length
Arms Length by Cat Bear Tree

I keep you at arm’s length
I keep you at arm’s length
I keep you at arm’s length (won’t you take me home)
I keep you at arm’s length (won’t you take me home)

But I could so easily say yes
I could so easily say yes
You could quite easily ruin me in this dress
I could so easily say yes

I could so easily say yes
I could so easily say yes
You could quite easily be the one I guess but like a cigarette I’ll put you out
You take away my breath

I keep my feet pressed up against the door
Because you’re ferocious
I keep far from your teeth spitting ‘I adore’
I build walls to benefit the both of us


I fight because it feels right for both of us
I want more when you tell me I’m ridiculous
I build walls to benefit the both of us
I build walls to benefit the both of us
Track Name: Relationship
Sometimes I can’t look after myself

Relationship by Cat Bear Tree

We’re in an annoying relationship
With an overdue ending and a love like friendship
I’m ready to give your things back
I’m ready to say I’m single


I’m stuck in this - release me
It’s been so long and we need to get out
You’ve taken the biscuit
It seems so hard now we’ve settled in our hearts

We’re in an annoying relationship
With an overdue ending and a love like friendship
I’m ready to give your things back
I’m ready to say I’m single


We built with bricks - constructed
You drew lines on a dot to dot to conquer my heart
Tried everything - can’t fix it
All the walls fall down around our jumble shop hearts


We’re in an annoying relationship
With an overdue ending and a love like friendship
I’m ready to give your things back
I’m ready to say I’m single
