Would’ve Known

Here’s to you my pretty one, its time to dash its time to run

My ears and eyes are open wide, I still can’t choose I can’t decide

Is it real beauty or is it youth? the two are easy to confuse 

Was it love I never knew? I would’ve known I could’ve told.

At least I know I’m not alone, there’s another soul just up the road,

Suffering alone like me and wallowing in self pity

All the smoking all the drink, its altering the way I think

And I don’t need no more of those old weekends wasted up my nose

And the faster I run the closer I get, it’s just out of reach I can feel it in the air,

The faster I run the harder I fall its just out of reach, that’s if we get there at all

At least I know I’m not alone there’s another soul just up the road.

Was it hunger or was it greed? Or was it something in between?

I try and find the reason of your need of taking everything you see.

In the end my pretty one, no-one lost but no-one won,

With lovers its always the same with one the master, one the slave.

And the faster I run the closer I get, its just out of reach I can feel it in the air,

The faster I run the harder I fall its just out of reach, that’s if we get there at all

At least I know I’m not alone there’s another soul just up the road.

And the faster I run the closer I get, its just out of reach I can feel it in the air,

The faster I run the harder I fall its just out of reach, that’s if we get there at all

At least I know I’m not alone there’s another soul just up the road.

Save Me

Today my body aches, I’ve got the shakes

no medicine for all this pain

feels like I’m heading for my early grave.

But you, you’re not the same, you float on air

Like a light you guide me there

It’s the essence of what holds me near

If I’m writing the truth – I can’t be without you

You clear the whites of my eyes

When you come to my side

You saved me 

when I lost myself

You save me

You save me from myself

The night, when its dark that’s the hardest part

It’s the time when my mind starts 

wondering where you are and where we’d be

But today I’ll see you again, forget all this pain, 

restore the colour to my face

that’s the essence of what holds me near

If I’m writing the truth – I can’t be without you

You clear the whites of my eyes

When you come to my side

You Saved Me 

when I lost myself

You save me

You save me from myself

Lately you’ve been so far from me

But I need you 

I need you 

I need you

You’ve been so far from me.

You saved me

When I lost myself

You save me, you save me from myself

You Saved Me 

when I lost myself

You save me

You save me from myself

Hear My Melody

Up is down, and square is round – the words fall out my mouth

I sink my head deep in the sand to suffocate the sound

I put my foot back in my mouth but the silence sucks it out

But please, ignore these words I speak and just hear my melody

Cus this one’s not for me – its all for you my dear.

I watch as you’re face turns red. Is it something that I said? 

I think you overhear or maybe you misread my stupid words

Words are not my strength.

But please, ignore these words I speak and just hear my melody

Cus this one’s not for me – its all for you my dear.

But hear me just hear me now cus my words I’m screaming loud now

It’s you I’m trying to reach so please just hear my melody

But please, ignore these words I speak and just hear my melody

Cus this one’s not for me – its all for you my dear.

But hear me just hear me now cus my words I’m screaming loud now

It’s you I’m trying to reach so please just hear my melody

She’s Climbing My Tree

She’s climbing my tree and slowly turning my buds to leaves

just like a sunbeam she’s got me growing from my bed of weed

she dries the tears of my years and cuts through all of my fears

she kills them with her kiss

she sees the lies in my smile, I drop my guise for a while

and I tell it like it is

She see’s me right.

She see’s me right

She see’s me right

I tell my stories but she strips me naked to my surprise

My tales of glory are only wasted but lord I tried

she dries the tears of my years and cuts through all of my fears

she kills them with her kiss

she sees the lies in my smile, I drop my guise for a while

until I tell it like it is

She see’s me right.

She see’s me right

She see’s me right

She reminds me when I’m wrong

And when those days keep limping on she picks me up and helps me on and on and on

She see’s me right.

She see’s me right

She see’s me right

Tall Stories

My car is getting faster

my world is getting smaller

my stories are getting taller

every day I stay

the road is getting longer

my hungers getting stronger

my eyes start to wander 

every day I stay

now I’m feeling our affections heading in the wrong directions

you try but you don’t do it anymore

When you’re near me I don’t feel it, and when you say it I don ‘t believe it

I just want to leave it, I just want to leave it

this time its time for my last goodbye

we held on so long but I’ve seen the light

the table’s slowly turning

with each slip I’m always learning

my notes are always burning

every day I stay

now I’m feeling our affections heading in the wrong directions

you try but you don’t do it anymore

when you’re near me I don’t feel it, and when you say it I don ‘t believe it

I just want to leave it, I just want to leave it

This time its time for my last goodbye

We held on so long but I’ve seen the light

My sweet belief is paralysed and my rivers slowly running dry

and now I’m running

the instincts always right first time and what I didn’t know I know right now

This time its time for my last goodbye

We held on so long but I’ve seen the light

Not Enough

Forget the things that you know and everything that you own

Burn your house to the ground give your money away

go help the human race in a foreign place 

and then start wondering why when all we cause is pain

is it too little to late? or just a question of fate?

is the light burning out? is there an energy drought?

like the city types with your suit and ties, you should try to live before you die

however much its never enough,  however much its never enough.... 

its just not enough for me.

In the papers today you see a similar face as society turns into a dangerous place 

try a little of this, try a little of that – we slowly turn into modern day laboratory rats

some people fighting for love there's people fighting for greed 

people killing for things that they don't even need

cus in these empty times the nature of mankind is we'll do just about anything to feel alive

however much its never enough,  however much its never enough

cus we want it all -its the way that we do it today 

we want it all - no happiness with anything less

you know that what we've got is just not enough however much you know its never enough

its always the same its always the same

Its just a different version of the same old problem

Is it time to grow up? your friends are settling down 

They’re buying family cars and a house out of town

they wave the city boodbye with the kids and the wife

but your still busy trying to figure out the meaning of life.

You never learned to decline, however hard you tried 

you go along for the ride, along for the ride

you know you've said it all, down the telephone

just no more just more, you know you've heard it before

however much, its never enough, however much its never enough

cus we want it all -its the way that we do it today 

we want it all - no happiness with anything less

you know that what we've got is just not enough however much you know its never enough

its always the same its always the same

Its just a different version of the same old problem

however much its never enough,  however much its never enough

cus we want it all -its the way that we do it today 

we want it all - no happiness with anything less

you know that what we've got is just not enough however much you know its never enough

its always the same its always the same

Its just a different version of the same old problem

Real Life

Real life. 

It’s a bitch and then you realise its not turning out the way you thought it might

No matter how hard you try

Then one day I looked in the mirror and I saw my face

I got the fear when my morning stare looked tired and scared.

Suddenly for the first time in my life I fell to my knees,

I looked to the sky and tried to believe in anything and then I screamed: “is there a meaning”

Finally I hear the voices they’re telling me “you wander far from the beaten track you’ll find that there’s no way back”

And now I’m a man, whatever happened to my master plan?

I left it floating in the aftermath.

Suddenly for the first time in my life I fell to my knees,

And looked to the sky and tried to believe in anything and then I screamed: “is there a meaning??”

real Life

I hear the voices they’re telling me, I hear the voices they’re telling me

I hear the voices they’re telling me “you’ll find that there’s no way back”

“you’ll find that there’s no way back”

Suddenly for the first time in my life I fell to my knees,

I looked to the sky and tried to believe in anything and then I screamed: “is there a meaning??”

real life, no matter how hard you try

one day you’ll realise, you’ll realise

real life, no matter how hard you try

one day you’ll realise, you’ll realise

Its alright now

I know you cry yourself to sleep - mascara stains never lie.

I can’t realise you’re dreams – you tell me with your swollen eyes

Just wipe you’re tears away. 

I try to leave but I stay

Just wipe you’re tears away and hear me say

Its alright now

Its alright now

Its alright now

Its alright now

I can hear you when you think – the voices come in loud and clear.

You always wanted all the things I knew that I just couldn’t give

Just wipe you’re tears away. 

I try to leave but I stay

Just wipe you’re tears away and hear me say

Its alright now

Its alright now

Its alright now

Its alright now

Hold on to my last words and you’re pain, it’ll fade

Hold on to my last words and you’re pain, it’ll fade

Hold on to my last words and you’re pain, it’ll fade

Hold on to my last words and you’re pain, it’ll fade

Its alright now

Its alright now

Its alright now

Its alright now

Number 4

Watch me make a mess out of this one – I do a great job of it every time

One thing that I should’ve learned by now is to never go back to the scene of a crime

I did it once. Twice? Three times maybe more? 

And I don’t want you to be number 4

We’re in too deep. 

Something’s nibbling at my feet.

We’re in too deep. 

I think its uncertainty

I don’t know why you feel the way you do, 

But that’s alright, I don’t mind, its alright as long as you’re still mine

I can feel the weight on my shoulders, the expectations killing me.

You’re mother couldn’t get any colder – she thinks that I’m unfit for your family

She wonders why you feel the way you do and says a prayer every night it might change.

Meanwhile I pray that she might go away. 

We’re in too deep. 

Something’s nibbling at my feet.

We’re in too deep. 

I think its uncertainty

I don’t know why you feel the way you do, 

But that’s alright, I don’t mind, its alright as long as you’re still mine

I’m running circles around the living room floor -  just leave me lying here

You keep me guessing while I watch you dress

We’re in too deep. 

Something’s nibbling at my feet.

We’re in too deep. 

I think its uncertainty

I don’t know why you feel the way you do, 

But that’s alright, I don’t mind, its alright as long as you’re still mine

Time to Run

Things here aren’t what they seem

behind all the calm the panic runs deep

Careful what you believe

hear what you want and chose what you see

Read in between the lies 

watch where you tread and take your time

We’re living in the strangest times and I think its time.

Its time to run, because its just begun

But we’ll overcome when love has won.

Trying to make some sense,

the devil runs riot in my head

Voices that I hear 

speaking in words of hatred and fear.

I cover my ears and eyes

I sensor my thoughts I block out the cries

We live in these senseless times, I think its time I say…

Its time to run because its just begun

But we’ll overcome when love has won.

Tell me where do we go from here my friend?

Just tell me where do we go now? where from here?

Its time to run because its just begun

But we’ll overcome when our love has won.

Its time to run because its just begun

But we’ll overcome when our love has won.

Grey Matter

All the little things that fade into your grey matter don't they always

Then you overlook the memories as they age into unfamiliar tales

I won't forget the time that you walked into the night

That was when you saved my life. 

I won't forget the time that you walked into the night

That was when you saved my life. 

Easy to forget the moments that you turned  into sweet history. 

I never realised the time till it was too late. It flashes by so quickly

I won't forget the time that you walked into the night

That was when you saved my life. 

I won't forget the time that you walked into the night

That was when you saved my life. 

I won't forget the time that you walked into the night

That was when you saved my life. 

I won't forget the time that you walked into the night

That was when you saved my life. 

Let it go

I know the fire on the surface is only there to scare me

Whats below, that’s the only part that really interests me

sit back, relax my friend and let it go

Just relax my friend

and let it go

Its plain to see the nerves behind the eyes that keep the fire raging.

You’re reality is fucked because the smoky haze blurs what you see

sit back, relax my friend and let it go

just relax my friend

just relax my friend and let it go

Just relax my friend

It won’t be long before they know just how far the story goes.

Dig deeper, dig, you never know what you might find.

Just relax my friend

Just relax my friend

Just relax my friend

And let it go.

Breathe

Breathe in. Breathe out. cool my blood and ease my need, my need to scream.

Heal me, I'm burning inside like the rest of you, heal me too.

Show me the real meaning of peace.

Give me the patience all that i need.

I'm losing myself in my fury.

I just breathe.

The city leads me places i don't want to be, i've never seen

can you hold me, just hold me down before i break some teeth, its killing me.

Show me the real meaning of peace.

Give me the patience all that i need.

I'm losing myself in my fury.

I just breathe.

Breathe. Breathe. I just Breathe. I breathe.

Tease me, the sweet temptations slowly eating me, piece by piece

Can you hold me, hold me down before i break some teeth, its killing me.....

Show me the real meaning of peace.

Give me the patience all that i need.

I'm losing myself in my fury.

I just breathe.

Breathe. I Breathe. I just Breathe. I breathe.
