"Once, A Glimpse" as written by Duncan Robert Lloyd, Paul Anthony Smith, Thomas Alexander English, Archis Tiku and Lukas James Wooller....
Put away hard to find,
I don't remember why I started speaking,
A fast track operation,
Slow exertion over-ridden,
Unseen tough to catch,
I can't remember why I started drinking,
One track mind each and everytime,
Speed exertion country living,
Engage the men in trust,
I can't remember why I started hurting,
Another street light going down,
The night reveals itself to you,
Slipping under sliding down,
All I need is a certain trigger,
The path you take will never make you happy,
All I need is a certain spur

Once a glimpse was all I needed,
I don't remember why I had to give you back,
I just remember I kept all of your souvenirs,
Discarded traces of a love I never had,

Enforced and then enabled,
I don't remember why I started breathing,
Tied up turn him loose,
Slow desertion kept me hidden,
That's that no escaping,
I can't remember why I started thinking,
Wrapped up cutting back,
Their inertia left you driven

Once a glimpse was all I needed,
I don't remember why I had to give you back,
I just remember I kept all of your souvenirs,
Discarded traces of a love I never had

Once a glimpse was all I needed,
I don't remember why I had to give you back,
I just remember I kept all of your souvenirs,
Discarded traces of a love I never had

I wish that I could say that I don't need you anymore,
I heard every word you said and that is all

I wish that I could say that I don't need you anymore,
I heard every word you said and that is all

Once a glimpse was all I needed,
I don't remember why I had to give you back,
I just remember I kept all of your souvenirs,
Discarded traces of a love I never had

I don't think your gonna get that early night,
I don't think your gonna get that early night,
I don't think your gonna get that early night,
I don't think your gonna get it

Just a glimpse was all I needed,
I don't remember why I had to give you back,
I just remember I kept all of your souvenirs,
Discarded traces of a love I never had

    General Commentit's my favourite on a certain trigger too, but I like the second album better. This song is awesome, though. One of my favourites.
