Track Name: Autumn
Days are passing and the smell of summers gone
In the cool Autumn rain nothing lingers long
Another season and the many that are passed
New memories fade and the old ones seem to last
New memories fade and the old ones seem to last
The years before were nothing more
Time since then is all I am and all I want to be
We meet the sorrow of our passing age
Together we will turn the final page
Together we will turn the final page
I still see you in the Summer
In your blue dress and the sunlight striking shadows in your hair
I still see you in the shadows of the moonlight
with the smell of wild roses in your hair
The heart that loves you will always stay young
But the part that knows you drifts towards the sun
You know you’ll always have a place in my heart
And through the music that I sing we’ll never be apart
And through the music that I sing we’ll never be apart
I still see you in the Autumn
Kicking leaves up in the south wind and they tangle in your hair
I still see you in the shadows
Track Name: Dreams of Crying
The only choice is to start again so at least I’ll still have something
Strings are breaking and the fire’s closing in
I’m sinking down past nothing
Dreamed of crying again tonight
but my face is dry and my tears are quiet
Termination proceeds, salvation recedes into nothing
Which is where I’m gonna be.

How you present yourself is not who you are within
Gotta a phoney smile slapped across my face
though I’m swimming in a colourless ocean.
It’s vast, it’s huge- it’s endless, never starts
The only view you get is looking at the stars
A reminder of what I can’t get, of what I can’t have, of what I can’t get
So I turn myself around and look at the ground instead
If I dreamed of dying tonight would you say to me something like

Living a life aint worth living if you’re not living in a moment of time
Well, my time aint living and I’m not loving living in this life.
So let me make my intentions diamond-clear
So I’ll never have to go through any of this again
My guard was down, and I was ready to fly
Until I saw you with another guy

How you present yourself is not who you are within
Gotta a phoney smile slapped across my face
though I’m swimming in a colourless ocean.
It’s vast, it’s huge- it’s endless, never starts
The only view you get is looking at the stars
A reminder of what I can’t get, of what I can’t have, of what I can’t get
So I turn myself around and look at the ground instead
Track Name: Feather
As you walk down the aisle, remember all I have done
And I realise that you’re the best one

Going away for a while
Don’t know how long
But you have to promise me to stay strong
Cause loving you is easy
I do it everyday
And that’s a feeling that’ll never…
It’ll never fade away

So hold on close to the last love that I gave
For a long, long time
It may not come again
You know I’ll think of you all the days that pass
In the nights I’ll dream of you

And I will hold you close to me
And I will listen to your heart beating
You will know that it’s me
‘Cause my soul is here and I’d be right there if you asked me

You know I love you
I always will
Cause that’s a feeling that don’t fade away
Oh it sticks around for good

And I will hold you close to me
And you will listen to my heart beating
Oh it beats for you
And you will know that’s it’s me
Cause the way I move and the way I sing and whoooa…
Don’t you hear me crying for you?
Oh I am screaming out for you
I’ll be here just waiting
For you
For you

Going away for a while
Don’t know how long
But you have to promise me
Hold on
Hold on
Track Name: Gone From Me
Too much to handle
Too scoped out wide
You don’t know how hard it is to say good bye
You hurt to start
But you grow on my mind
You fell beneath the cutting edge by this hand of mine
I sculpted and shaped you
Til you became divine
Now you rub me up the wrong way
And irritation that’ll stay
Now you aint no friend of mine

But you keep me warm all night
And you keep me warm all day
We should always walk the same path
But my blade it was sharp
And my mood it was dark
So we come to the parting of our ways

I know there’ll be another
There always is
I know I’ll feel the same again
Oh I’ve learned how to twist and bend
And so will you, my new friend

Cause you keep me warm all night
And you keep me warm all day
We should always walk the same path
But my blade it was sharp
And my mood it was dark
So we come to the parting of our ways

Cause it’s a long way to fall
And its cold on the floor
And the razor cuts you free
Forever gone from me
Track Name: Knuckles
Oh I’ve had my taste,
I stepped outside and enjoyed the fun.
Oh what a disgrace,
I can’t reel myself back in to one.

Losing things you’ll never find
looking for them, never mind.
You try to get your way round it.
Oh how I wish I stayed,
making love and getting laid.
Instead I slipped around it.

Get your knuckles off the floor and your fingers in the door
Take everything you need and a little bit more.
Put your shield up.
Draw your sword out
Prepare yourself for war
Hear that battle shout

Lost trace, hold, embrace,
waiting for the time to chase
Instead you look to doubt it
Waiting for you to go,
the only thing you say is ‘no’
I need you. I doubt it.


Rip the saddle off the mule
Get a tank full of fuel
Moving away, start again to a place I can rule
Life, I’ll come for you
Nothing’s ever new
no matter how hard you scream about it
Everyway we think today, should we think some other way?
instead we look by it
Listening to the big voice, do we have another choice?
instead we look by it

No one will ever really care
when someone steals your chair
You can whine and cry and moan
You end up all on your own

Rip the saddle off the mule
Get a tank full of fuel
Moving away, start again to a place I can rule

Get your knuckles off the floor and your fingers in the door
Take everything you need and a little bit more.
Track Name: Stay Here
The carpet forms some ice
The door breaks through the night

Where are going? Where have you been?
For all I know you could have been with him

And deep behind these wooden walls
My charm it breaks, my mask it falls
Will I have nothing at all?

Cause the nights are cold and the days are too
Wont you stay here just to help me through
I find myself asking the same question, “Can I forget about you?”

Tuesdays just another end to another year
Don’t you hear me crying out for you?
Cause you’re the best friend I could ever have,
and I wonder, do you love me back?

Been away for a while

Its like a truck ran over my head
Its like my heart fell into my shoes
Its like nothing that I felt before
This feeling aint bad, its much much worse
