The first was released in February 2011 (you can also get that here!) and the third will be released in deepest darkest winter time. They all consist of demos.

Track Name: Love Never Lasts (feat. Aude Solievna)
Love never lasts
It's just a photograph,
Caught in the act,
Caught in the moment
But the moment has passed,
The colours have faded
And love never lasts...

You taught me too
Come out of the darkness
When the knife cuts through
And the tears flow freely
But it's all in the past.
Unlike the scars we share
Love never lasts...

Love never lasts,
It's good for a moment,
A summer on the lash,
A winter in the sunshine,
But now it's overcast.
I wanted this forever
But love never lasts...
