Track Name: Bare My Soul (Remastered)
Stephen said why not write something
That’s not so deep and meaningful?
But the truth can be so,
Tragic and beautiful.
Blythe said she could never
Tell anyone just how she feels.
How will anyone know when,
She caves in and it all gets real?
I want to bare my soul -
In a way that no one can.
In the hope that
some of you might understand
How it feels
To be so alone.
To be so alone.
To be so alone.
Cassandra said she’d lost the plot
When she stopped the car to drop me off.
I watched her disappear
Her face reflected in the rear-view mirror.
Sophie woke me in the dead of night
To tell me how her dad had died.
I lie here in the dark but,
Now there’s nowhere left to hide.
I want to bare my soul
In a way that no one can.
In the hope that,
Some of you might understand
How it feels
To be so alone.
To be so alone.
To be so alone.
I want to bare my soul
In a way that no one can.
In the hope that,
Some of you might understand
How it feels
To be so alone.
To be so alone.
To be so alone.
Track Name: Everything Will Work Out
As the dawn breaks, on the last day -
Of a long, long year,
My head aches, but the bedroom is bright and
I'm wide awake.
And you’re here -
And it's such a relief to finally
Have you near ...
But I almost hear you thinking,
I can almost hear you thinking,
About ... him.
And all that you'll leave behind,
Lies heavy on your mind -
Heavy on my mind …

But I've got this funny feeling everything will work out
I've got this funny feeling that everything will work out
I've got this funny feeling that everything will work out
I've got this funny feeling that everything -
Will fall --- into place.

So pack up your things and just leave him,
Come right out and just tell him where you were tonight.
Or kiss him tonight with the same mouth,
You used on me in my ... cold house,
And I promise I won't tell.
But I almost hear you thinking,
I can almost hear you thinking,
About ... him.
And all that you'll leave behind,
Lies heavy on your mind -
Heavy on my mind …

But I've got this funny feeling everything will work out
I've got this funny feeling that everything will work out
I've got this funny feeling that everything will work out
I've got this funny feeling that everything -
Will fall --- into place.

Here I go, another romantic on overflow,
I locked you out but you won't go,
The keys tied round your neck
Haven't quite strangled you yet.
And I live with my regrets,
Like you with your cigarettes,
I long to give you up,
Before you kill me.

We're too tied, too well-tied together.
Track Name: Trampoline
Coming down again
Won't you leave a trampoline
At the foot, of the stairs?
So I won't break my neck
Falling out, of your favour.

White powder, speaks louder
Than any words you're saying
My flower, turned sour
I found the petals at the end, of the bed.

'It's just 'media-types' -
You know what they're like'
Well yeah, I do, but I never pictured you with them,
Coming in from the cold,
You're losing your hold,
On a part of me you'd stolen.

I've stopped, calling you when I'm drunk,
I've taken the time to hear the one,
Voice that's telling me,
That you don't really care,
I'm getting there -
I'm almost at the point of no return.

But there's a light that burns

White powder, speaks louder,
Than any words you're saying,
My flower, turned sour,
I found the petals at the end, of the bed.

'It's just 'media-types' -
You know what they're like'
Well yeah, I do, but I never pictured you with them,
Coming in from the cold,
You're losing your hold,
On a part of me you'd stolen.

Just turn out the lights
You know what they're like'
Well yeah, I do, but I never pictured you with them,
Coming in from the cold,
You're losing your hold,
On a part of me you'd stolen.
Track Name: Firelight
Soft, soft the firelight
On my mother's face
Reading by candlelight
Everything in its place.
Outside the willow tree
Weeping in the wind.
I'm a man more sinned against
Than sinning oh I swear.

You know that I'll love you
No matter what you do.
You know that I'll love you
No matter what you do.

When she walked her feet were bare
The wind played in her hair
And when I fell she carried me
She said son, I don't care.
She made me feel like I could do
Anything I wanted to.
I'm a man more sinned against
Than sinning oh I swear.

You know that I'll love you
No matter what you do.
You know that I'll love you
No matter what you do.
You know that I'll love you
No matter what you do.
You know that I'll love you
No matter what you do.
Track Name: Seeing Stars (Remastered)
Everybody knows you’re not perfect
But you still do your best to hide your flaws.

Everything you do is just surface
But we all know what goes on behind closed doors.

You’ll never know how it feels
To be out on a limb, in the wind.

And you’ll never know how much it hurts
To fall so hard you see stars

To fall so hard you see stars
To fall so hard you see stars
To fall so hard you see stars
To fall so hard you see stars

Everything we do is falling snowflakes
It will all have melted by the dawn.
Give up all your fears for your own sakes
And follow me out into the storm.

You’ll never know how it feels
To be out on a limb, in the wind.

And you’ll never know how much it hurts
To fall so hard you see stars

To fall so hard you see stars
To fall so hard you see stars
To fall so hard you see stars
To fall so hard you see stars
Track Name: By My Side (Remastered)
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 (Remastered)
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
Track Name: Safe From Harm
I want know, where your sorrow flows
I want to go where no one goes.
I want sail, the dark ocean in you
And make it to the other...side.
And I won't wait
For the flood gates to break
And I won't wait until it's too late

I want to know where your sorrow grows
I want to know what no one knows.
I want to scale, the dark wall around you
And break through to the other...side.

And I won't wait
For the flood gates to break
And I won't wait
Until it's too late.

I will keep, you safe from harm.
I will keep, you safe from harm.
I will keep, you safe from harm.
I will keep, you safe from harm.

And I won't wait
For the flood gates to break
And I won't wait
Until it's too late.

And I won't wait
For the flood gates to break.
And I won't wait
Until it's too late.
Track Name: All It Takes
Woke up at her place, tired and yawning
Looked out a window on a, perfect morning, there’s a
Sailing boat, in the square
Just like me, wondering how it got there.

Stood by her bed, and I, watched her sleeping
Through her scattered clothes, I go creeping
And I’m wondering
What the hell am I, so afraid of?

This is the beginning of something wonderful
This is the beginning of something magical
This is the beginning of something wonderful.

This is the beginning of something wonderful.
This is the beginning of something magical
And all it gives, and all it takes away.

Woke up at her place, early evening
She floats towards me and I’m, barely breathing, there’s a
Ray of sun, in her hair
Just like me, wondering how it got there.

Stand on the ledge, and I, walk out on the air
I could die here and I, really wouldn’t care
I’m dropping in, I’m dropping out
I’m calling in, I’m calling out.


This is the beginning of something wonderful
This is the beginning of something magical
This is the beginning of something wonderful.

This is the beginning of something wonderful
This is the beginning of something magical
And all it gives, and all it takes away.

Dry docked and landlocked
What the hell am I, so afraid of?
Track Name: Burroughs & Bukowski
Leave a light on for me
So I can find my way into your dreams.
When I look at you
I always catch you looking, back at me.
I know you’re afraid
And I know deep down you’ll, never leave.
What do you want from me?
I guess I'm just your little, fantasy.

I'm on my way back home
Burroughs and Bukowski
Time better spent alone
Burroughs and Bukowski

What did it really mean?
Was it just another dream within a dream?
We’ll shed another skin
Becoming something we have, never been.
You’re like a flower in bloom
As I watch you walk back, to your room.
Sew my shadow back on
And I’ll return wherever, I came from.

I'm on my way back home
Burroughs and Bukowski
Time better spent alone
Burroughs and Bukowski
Track Name: Walk Right Out (Remastered)
White light broke the dead of night
Screaming woke the household from their sleep.
No one dreams here any more
At least not for the moment.
My little sister rise up from, your bed again
Think happy thoughts and let it go.

Hold on tight, let go lightly
One last night -
Battered and bruised but not broken
You walk right in, and walk right out.

I'm not sure what to feel
And I'm not sure of the best advice to give
And I'm not sure we will readily forgive him but
Think happy thoughts and let it go.

Hold on tight, let go lightly
One last night -
Battered and bruised but not broken
You walk right in, and walk right out.
