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.

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.

Trampoline 03:44
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.

Firelight 03:38
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.

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

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.

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

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.

All It Takes 04:16
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?

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

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.
