Track Name: By My Side
Oh how we carry with us, traumas of the past
Faithful to moulds in which we’re cast.

Hand me down dysfunction, recidivist desire watch me
Throw another lover on the fire.

There’s a great white elephant, hidden in the room
Maybe you didn’t see him in the gloom.

You say that I am empty, emotionally devoid
Blame it on whatever, happened to the boy.

And maybe it’s better we don’t talk about it all
Maybe it’s better we don’t talk at all but

Don’t you want to be by my side?
I only want to be by your side.
Don’t you want to be by my side?
I only want to be by your side.

The boy in the photograph made me want to cry
When I saw the emotion in his eyes.

Is it any wonder I’m struggling to cope?
Is it any wonder we’re giving up hope?

And maybe it’s better we don’t talk about it all
Maybe it’s better we don’t talk at all but

Don’t you want to be by my side?
I only want to be by your side.
Don’t you want to be by my side?
I only want to be by your side.

Don’t you want to be by my side?
I only want to be by your side.
Don’t you want to be by my side?
I only want to be by your side.
Track Name: Vampire Town
I need a break from this vampire town
It sucks my blood and leaves me to drown
In a lover’s bed I might rest my head
But don’t go thinking I’ve left you for dead.

The wind blows around these tired feet
That push me always down a one way street
You know I love you all I need is time
What’s yours is yours and what’s mine is mine

And I know that we, will always be friends
And I know that we, will always be friends
And I know that we, will always be friends
And I know that we, will always be friends

I wrote you a letter there’s no need to reply
I’ll be the one who always swallows his pride.
I believe in destiny, I believe in fate
I believe it’s never going to be too late

And I know that we, will always be friends
And I know that we, will always be friends
And I know that we, will always be friends
And I know that we, will always be friends
