‘My Weakness’

There’s nothing left to say
But I’ll just go ahead and say it anyway
There’s no where left to go
Coz I don’t want to go home on my own

I’ll make you believe that I’m ok
Maybe I’ll open up someday

It’s never easy on your own
Oh no, no, no
Spending too much time alone
Wondering if all you ever wanted wasn’t more than just a

Stones throw away
I’d hold it in both hands and say

My weakness is me
I’ve only got myself to blame
I’ve got to believe
Someday I’ll be saved

Will you think that I am weak?
If I opened up to speak
And told you how I really feel
Don’t criticise me if I hide
I’m just trying to keep,
The thoughts that are deep inside

I wish I could show you how I feel
But I don’t know if who I am is real
So I’m lying to myself
Maybe it’s a cry for help

So I make you believe that I’m ok
Maybe I’ll open up someday

Chorus

‘Fear’

The Greek call me phobia, you can call me fear
Hold my hand and I will guide you
Hide from this I still will find you
Face to face my dear

Freedom, from this grip I bind is
Neither everlasting or for sure
But there’s reason, behind the madness
As I will never stop, there will never be a cure (and)

You could fall to Earth from high above
Be yourself when no one else does
You could close all the doors but it’s not enough, you see
You could throw yourself in front of love
Break your heart til the beating stops
You could be alone in the dark
But I’m always here – I am fear

The meek I have control of ya, the strong ones who I fear
The bold ones can and do defy you
I hide from them as they continue to
Face, to face their fears

Bridge
Chorus

However you perceive me,
Be in no doubt that the only reason I am here is because you let me
When the lights go out I can only feed
On the grip you hold so tight of me
Let go of the fear and alone you’ll be
To enjoy the rewards of your bravery

‘Lost’

I found you when I was lost
The time’s now changed for both of us
What do you mean to yourself?
Not much from the evidence

How long will you leave it up to me
To feel like the one who became the enemy
Will I ever feel the same as you
I don’t know but I know I want to

I’m lost
The signs that show the way are only just…
…out of view
My mind has hold of all the thoughts of you
While hands grasp the air where you once stood

When will you try to find
Some middle ground where we both can survive
Connection severed but I did the best I could
Intentions never came to what they should

‘Communication’ is much easier to say
than the definition of itself I struggle with it everyday
My tongue holds back the syllables
The pens ink fades invisible
And hands make meaningless gestures without giving me away

‘Secret’

Could you keep a secret
Could you be strong and hide it from the world
Or would it burn a hole in your mind
And spend most of it’s time
With a view from the tip of your tongue

Could you find the right words
Or end up not knowing what to say
Should the curtain reveal,
Should the truth stay concealed
Or would it make much more sense
To remain on the fence and leave….

Leave this story’s characters be
Rumours could lead to grief
A secret stays a secret in me

“I know something you dont know”
but i wont let those whispers go

Did you make the right choice?
Or is the cat out of the bag again?
Did the actions you take
Lead to sadness and heartache
Would it have made much more sense
To remain on the fence and leave…

‘Starlight’

What I’m singing gets stuck in my throat
I sing something but it’s not what I wrote
What I say and the things that I mean
Are quite often different things

And I think that you should be weary
I don’t mean to sound scary or alarming at all
But appearance can be deceptive
New weapons invented each time we are born

Will you leave the light on at night in your window
So I know the way when I come home to you
I make it hard even though it is simple
I know what I have to do

I feel hollow, tired and cold
I can’t swallow humility whole
Cause my pride is still in the way
From the last time I did it my way

And I’m crying as I look in the mirror
Cause I feel like a sinner and I can’t be at all
As the starlight reflects off the water
I start thinking I oughta relinquish control

Chorus x2

‘Half Of The Whole’

I want it all, I want it all
I wanna feel like this thing can’t go wrong
But half of the whole just ain’t worth fighting for

My heart is yours, my heart is yours
But-each breath that I hold can-only last for so long
I could defend you but you’d break down the walls
…break down the walls and…

I see the stars
As a target for this bullet of ours
Your shot came my way, punched through my heart
And I don’t want to play this game anymore

I want to hold, I want to hold
As you give it back with a grip just as strong
But half of the whole just ain’t worth fighting for

My heart is yours, my heart is yours
But-each breath that I hold can-only last for so long
I could defend you but you’d break down the walls
…break down the walls and…

Chorus

And I’m fighting, fighting for peace
You’ve taken the only thing
It would take for me admit defeat.
So I’m trying, tryin to make believe
That a sorrow so sweet,
Is worth holding this torch that keeps burning me

Chorus x2

‘How Things Change’

We are all so guilty we cannot see the truth
You’d better make the most of your youth

I’d never change, if it meant I’d never be the same again
I’ll never feel no shame

If you’re waiting for something
To make a change in your life
Don’t be surprised
If it takes some time
You won’t notice it happen
You’ll still feel the same
But when you look back now
You’ll realise how things change

Things that you loved are meant to be lost
And no matter the pain it’s all worth the cost

I’d never change, if it meant I’d never be the same again
I’ll never feel no shame

Chorus

‘For You’

For you I’d do anything
I’d rip it all up and start again
I’d walk through a pane of glass to
See the other side

For you I would clear the sky
So all of the gods could ask themselves why
They gave you away

I want you to know
That I’ve tried too hard to let you go
I’ll never…. Let you go

For you there are poems someone wrote
For you they have sailed a thousand boats
Just to see you

For you I could bleed myself dry
For you I should thank god I’m alive
If it wasn’t for you, wasn’t for you

The winds of change
Would have swept me away
The fires of hell would
Have my soul
The waves on the ocean
Would wash me ashore
The earth wouldn’t move
So this is for you..

It’s hard to move on from those things that you miss
All those times that we laughed cried or were kissed
If we never see each other after all this
I just want you to know, if it wasn’t for you…

Chorus

‘Real’

After all that’s said and done
Time with you has special meaning
In a crowd or one to one
Con-ver-sa-tion flows and it seems

Real, and I feel
Like weight that once stopped breath has now revealed
And it sealed
A closeness that I know you see in me too

I’ll be what you need
Stay strong, hold on when you reach for me
You’ll be what I need
To count on, hold on when my grip is weak

No matter how wound up I become
Time with you has mental healing
With a common taste of fun
Laughing til our cheeks are numb this is

Real, and we’ll still
Cause a smile when bad fortune is on the wheel
Let’s make a deal,
If one falls down the other’s a hand to heal

Chorus x2

‘Sea Of Tranquility’

Thought now for hours, how could it be, there’s no productivity
The moon looks down and asks a simple yet important thing to me
“How do you feel?”
She said with a glint in her eye and a tilt to her head
“I don’t know” I replied“ But it might be best if I don’t go out tonight”

‘Cause the moonlight reminds me that
My feet walk the same old streets
My heart has grown too fond
My smile has wandered on

Walked around the corner, what did I see? Familiarity
I’ve been drinking too long from the sea of tranquility
“Are you for real?”
She said with a glint in her eye and a tilt to her head
“Yes I am” I replied “So it might be best if I don’t go out tonight”

Now the moonlight reminds me that
My feet walk the same old streets
My heart has grown too fond
My smile has wandered on


Running our fingers through waters
Proven safe long before should have taught us
To consider our options, risk all we own
Or continue existing the life we’ve outgrown

So my head tilts up,
To the stars I am drawn I feel ready to move on
I gotta lotta things to see, changes to make
So my sights keep facing east

And now the sunlight reminds me that
My feet walk where I see fit
My heart has room to grow
My smile is back once more

‘Feel Any Feeling’

There’s no one here that I know
I’m lost and I am alone
Won’t you help me find
Find my way home?

I don’t care about where you have been
Or the things you said you had seen
Won’t you help me find
Find my way home?

I can’t see
A way out
Of this life I’m trying to lead
If it comes to an end
Should I stop pretending?
To feel any feeling

There’s no one here that I know
I’m lost and I am alone
Won’t you help me find
Find my way home?

You’ve sold me for all that I’m worth
You’ve knocked me into reverse
Now I’m losing my way, my way home

I can’t see
A way out
Of this life I’m trying to lead
If it comes to an end
Should I stop pretending?
To feel, feel, feel any feeling

‘One Step At A Time’

Well I know that this may seem like a desperate proposition
But it’s time you took yourself out of this tired one man mission

Your plates been so damn full that your focus has been missing
The attention that it craves to make a god damn difference – take it

One step at a time
While time is on your side
Another step out of line
Might cause this fragile mind
To fall apart

I heard a man had lost his other half and gained a countdown
A ticking clock that made him self destruct and have a meltdown

Walking in those shoes must wipe the strength that once was in you
Imagining them on my feet how could I continue
