By My Side 03:51
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.

Vampire Town 03:16
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
