AFRAID TO FLY

Feel like you're losing your innocence
Taking this all on again
A friend said it's easy
But you know this feeling
That keeps you by the window
Something to weight that heavy heart

Don't be afraid to be
Feeling so bad you see
It won't be long till you get back home
Dream what you wanna be
Feel it so easily
Don't be afraid to fly, just let go
With the sunlight in your eyes

Climbing that cloudy maze all night
Separate this world in disguise
Surfing the moonstruck horizon
You're already drifting through tomorrow
Turning the black holes into stars

CHORUS

And when you get that high
Never say goodbye
To sunlight moving slowly through your window
And on your face
And when you get so high
You're gonna find
It doesn't get much better
Now it's all that you need to fly

CHORUS

...You're on your way to be
Catching that star you see
So don't be afraid to fly, just let go
With the sunlight in your eyes

AFTERGLOW

So long, you gotta go
I've pushed the door against your shoes
for too long
And now you say you can't decide
Which way to run or where to hide you're so wrong
I can't believe this is going on

Too late to steal the show
Long time waitin for the afterglow
If it's over, then I have to know
You wanna leave so just go on
And half the time I'd carry on
'Cause I need you, and it hurts to know

You tie me up, you tie me down
I came undone, you came around
You were so strong
And now you're free to play the field
With love to win and hearts to steal, so long
You say you're never coming back

Too late to steal the show
Long time waitin' for the afterglow
Now you're leavin' and it hurts to know
Lost chance and now you're gone
And half the time I'd carry on
'Cause I need you, but it hurts to show

CREEPIN' UP SLOWLY

Let's kick on back to the places we know
The path isn't set yet, your life is on show

Saw you running in circles, got a bug in your head
Feeling needles and pins, get them outta my head
Take a chance on a rumour heard from a friend
That something is gonna change (yeah)

It's creepin' up slowly
She's taken me over
It's turning me on
With every breath that I take
I roll up my dreams
And blow them away

Cruising on Blue Street my worries are freed
Stressed out and in doubt I know exactly what you need

Got your life wrapped up in the palm of your hand
Try to feel what I feel but you can't understand
No you won't be satisfied till you see
That something is gonna change (yeah)

Chorus

Rip it up and turn the page
And slip through the cracks in the stage
And you will find me there
Look past the nose upon your...
Face it, it's gonna change

Saw you movin' in slowly
Caught a glint in your eye
A moment's hesitation keeps you wondering why
And you won't be satisfied till you see
This meeting of the minds inside of me (yeah)

Chorus

 

ENEMY

Jaded...miscalculated
Now you're tied in...what are you hiding?

Something's going on, why can't you see?
Something's going on, it tastes like the enemy

Abusing, comes from the faith I'm losing

Could you ever be persuaded?
I am what I am
I could never be that way...oh no, oh yeah
Here I go again

Cruising through your mind I cannot see
That these four walls are suffocating me

Something's going on, seems like forever
Something's going on, it's now or never

Bruising comes from the sleep I'm losing

CHORUS

Tell me all the things you want
Make me understand

CHORUS

 

FOREST FOR THE TREES

It hurts you now to listen
You say you're on a mission
Dealing with the pain inside
But all you seem to do is cry

Hands shaking dropping your defences
Now you're taking your chances

Coz every night and every day
I see you fall down on your knees
It doesn't matter what I say
You'll do what you do
In your forest for the trees

There's a halt on conversation
You tell me that you're stayin'
Another bright day has gone by
But he's bigger than the big blue sky

So tired of makin' excuses
Gotta stop sittin' on fences

CHORUS

You're craving physical attention
Make a break for a new seduction
You're left here picking up the pieces
But only the truth can set you free

CHORUS

 

HAPPINESS WITHOUT YOU

Breaking skin on crashing waves
Lay back dreaming about the days
I was yours and you were mine
Can you turn back the hands of time?

Empty glasses on the bar
Refill please, my patience slips away
Sheets of silk and satin skies
Never could I imagine...

Happiness without you
Happiness without you
And I will never doubt you
Happiness without you
Back in the arms of my...

Crystal trends they float on by
Turn it over, and start again
Maybe we could lose our minds
Scarred with a sign that I...

I cannot remember
Happiness without you
And I can't live without you
Happiness without you
Back in the arms of my...

Shadowed gardens, search for the sun
Inner city, seeks the sky
A million cars, a million signs, rushing against time

Happiness without you
I can't live without you
And I will never doubt you
Happiness without you
Back in the arms of my...

 

HOW I GOT THIS WAY

Sweep it under the rug
Hurt the ones that you love
I can't remember when or where
Sit alone with the one
Who shines her light on the sun
A darker day now I have lost my way...
You think I've changed but I'm the same

If it really matters
I'll do anything you ask me
Doesn't mean I'm never gonna fall
Wrap your arms around me
'Cause there is no need to disagree
Set your mind on better days
I don't know how I got this way

Breaking all of the rules
Act like some kind of fool
I'm on my own and you, will never understand...
Building the walls around me

Enough about me
I've tried so hard
Stuck in a hard place
Let down your guard
And soak in summer daze
Trippin' with craze I close my eyes

 

MADRIGAL

I've been confusing real life with a dream
and dreaming that some day I'll find all the
answers to life

But I don't know where I am

Trip over shadows and dance in the streets
Feeling my way through the memories I'm
keeping my distance

Go where I wanna go

Watching the world go by...

Here I stand with my head in my hands
Watching the world turn around

 

SAFFRON

Turn around, take a picture
Now you're part of the A-team
It means nothing at all, it means nothing your...
Best friends, bad habits
Now he's got a Mercedes
I know that it is crazy
Is this the way that your life was meant to be?

Everything you know has come undone
A saffron lie
You let it get you and now it's gone
Can't get by on a saffron lie

Hot or cold, I've been told
That you're kind of amazing
But it just doesn't faze me
I just let it slide
On a roll, lost control
When you told me that you'd be
Falling in with the mainstream
But you keep hanging on ...on and on

CHORUS

Solid gold, now you're rolled
And you're pushing up daisies
If you don't hit the brakes then...
You'll be history
Ex-friends, hard habits
Now he's fuckin' your lady
I know that it is crazy
But it keeps going on and on and on and on

CHORUS

In a world, that's moving on too fast

 

SKIN

It could have been
The smell of your skin
An innocence I've never seen
I find myself reaching for you
I couldn't ask for anymore
Feels like I've met you once before
You've opened the door to a brand new me...

Some things are meant to be
Now you've showed me the way
Got me thinking that maybe
Something just keeps telling me
if I gave you my word
Some things are meant to be

A message left on your machine
Now I'm waiting for the phone to ring
It's in the way you look at me
I'm trying so hard to believe that...

CHORUS

It could have been
The smell of your skin

CHORUS

 

STRONGER

Have you ever had one of those days
That had you freakin' out
Nothing ever goes right
Makes you start thinking
'bout what you want
And everything that you need
And if you start losing control
Just see the top of the rhyme
You've got a head start
Now I'm tryin' to figure out
Why you play a game you know
Will never be won

Think about ooh
There's not a lot I can do
But if you take a good look at yourself
You're gonna see that I'm stronger
It's not about you
I found you breakin' the rules
You gotta give it all up
To show me that you're gonna be stronger

Where you go and who you know
And I don't care a lot
But what I can't care is I don't dare you
To show me what you got
Take your money, take your honest
Take Sir Laugh-a-Lot
You got a lot of friends but you don't get me
I'm just getting even

CHORUS

Maybe that's the plan now
Maybe I just don't understand
How you can get off - non stop
Thinking you're coming back
Now that I'm in total control
And you've been wasting your time
I see you low ride, drive by
It's not how you play the game
It's how you play the loser

CHORUS

 

THIS TIME

I've lived within, without you now
I guess this shows, to you
Climb upstream you lost your float
The water stained your shoes

Easy come now easy go
I'll give it up for you
Makes no difference where we go
Before we drift away

This time
Take a look around
At where the river breaks
This time

Paddle harder, paddle slow
This flag at sea deceives me
Lost control I had to throw
My pickup line to you

Nothing more and nothing less
I'll leave it up to you
Make the call and make it fast
Before we drift away

This time
Take a look around
At where we separate
This time

You hit the bottom of the ocean
You will see me on the ceiling
I'm not the same inside
Don't go down too long
Might forget to take a breath
And lose this feeling
So what you got to hide?
After the rain has washed this away
The winds picking up
We're caught on this wave

Cold communication slows
As the mist collects, before you
I know it's really hurting you but...

This time, make the call
And make it any way you want it to
This time
Hold you slowly till the sunlight slips away
This time

I've lived within without you now

 

WAIT

I woke up on the dark side of the room
The light side of the moon
Alarm bells ringin', stingin'
Pinchin' on my skin
Pulled a trigger within
I know you're wasting my time

I can't wait just a little bit longer
There's no way this could get any stronger
Just a breath away, doesn't get much easier

Afternoon sunlight creepin' on the floor
Casting shadows like it's midnight
Cigarettes and twists and shit
I'm bathing in the depths of it once again
What's it all achieve?
Why don't you drop the disguise?

CHORUS

Can you remember little things?
Do you think what could have been?
Can you hear the leaves fall down?

CHORUS

 

LOVE THE SUN

Monday starts to cover up my eyes
Yeah I'm leaving it all behind
Soon I know the clouds will drift away
But I think I'm gonna have to stay

I love the sun
The morning wakes up slowly
I love the sun

A brighter wind that keeps me on my feet
The sounds of the streetcars racing and rolling
The supernova life is all I need
As long as you are here with me

I love the sun
Against my tears are brighter
I love the sun
Make my head feel lighter
I love the sun

In this windy city
You will certainly wait to see
Breeze keeps blowing right through me

I love the sun...

 

NEVERMIND

The river makes me weak
The silence makes me shiver
There's something in the air, but...

Can't believe she's coming closer
Deeper sleep but I can't see
Can I buy a piece of time
And nevermind, nevermind

I watch you when you sleep
I try and tame my breathing
I wanna wake you from your dreams
And do you really dream of me?

CHORUS

Thought I might drown in your tears again
Helplessly floating away
I wanted to feel, feel what I feel

Never made much sense to break away
Break down on me everyday
Even if I never find a way
To get back to you
I'll die trying

The river makes me weak....

 

RUNNINGAWAY

Running away from all that I've ever been
Violent eyes are pointing like a finger
on your truths will I rely, scratch beneath the surface
Yesterday my life was so on time
not dealing with the world I've left behind

Running away from all that I've ever been
Now that I know it's not all I could have been
Running away from all that I've ever been

Dark inside
So angry when you're driven by the pain you hide
I'm sorry if I've given you a reason to deceive yourself
believe yourself, I'm not the one I seem

CHORUS

Falling down around us (yes I fall)
I have no place within your life (in your life)

CHORUS

Yes I run, yes I run, yes I run to you
Yes I run, yes I run, yes I run to you now

 

SPLASH

I could make you a superstar
I can taste the love bite through your hair
Pushing over magazines
I could drown your slavish body bare
And I could swim the world with you
If you want me to…

SPLASH
Never needed someone like I do
SPLASH
I suffocate myself inside of you
I'd give you everything, so you know...
bah bah de-dah...

Slicin' up a mandarin
Let me place the pieces in your eyes
Let me fascinate you
Wrap your mouth around me
Say goodnight
Kind of pleasure that holds you tight
Slide a little more

CHORUS

Between the lines and your confusion
Nothing ever ends
when you’re disguised until the sunrise
nothing ever ends
bah ba-de-dah...

SPLASH
I never needed someone like I do (like I do)
I suffocate myself inside of you (suffocate myself)
I'd give you everything…

 

SYDNEY

I believe my fate is tied to you my love
Nothing lies between us
Waiting for eternity
To fall down like a blanket on our heads
She's leaving me behind

Don't talk to me that way
You've had your time to say
What you had to say
If you talk to me that way
My heart will bleed
You're the one I need

'Cause I gave her nothing
She left with something of mine

Days will come and nights will fall
Are questions asked? I can't recall the meaning
See the stars through broken eyes
And listen softly to the sigh of grieving
She's leaving me behind

Don't talk to me that way
You've had time to say
What you had to say

'Cause I gave her nothing
She left with something
Life is so easy
When you're the only one

 

THE BURDEN

I think I'll bury the key
I've lost the plot things got in the way
and I've lost my head again
I haven't dealt with the anger
since the very first day I felt it
now it blooms like a flower buried in your backyard

It might have been easier
but a guy is designed to withstand these things
it might have been easier
without the burden I can be sometimes
Sometimes...Sometimes...

You say I'm over the top
bursting with emotion
when I just can't stop
you're like a crystal lotion on my face

it might have been easier
but a guy is designed to withstand these things
it might have been easier
without the burden I can be sometimes sometimes x4

 

WORLD'S AWAY

She packed her life into a suitcase
Chasing a man somewhere in cyberspace
Life takes a crash like a virus
The power's off, enjoy the silence

Now she wakes up to a brand new day
Will she give the very best that she can?
Now she tells him of her masterplan too late
And now she's world's away

Try to relive this sudden emptiness
Try to revive your plastic heart
Take a look around, bitter loneliness
Look's like your life's been torn apart

Chorus

I found her walking through subways
Hiding her eyes from the light
She looks like a paper queen
And I brush the hair from her face

Chorus x 2

ORIGINAL SAFFRON

Turn around, take a picture
Now I'm part of the A-team
It means nothing at all, it means nothing...
My best friend's bad habits
Now he's got a mercedes
I know that he was crazy
He should be dealing with ordinary memories

And everything's gonna be alright
Saffron lies
I never knew I could come undone
Saffron lies, saffron lies

Hot or cold, I've been told
That you're kind of amazing
You know that it would faze me, it means nothing...
I took a roll, lost control
When you told me that maybe
We're driving hits on the mainstream
He should be dealing with ordinary memories

CHORUS

Whoa whoa whoa
Whoa whoa whoa
Whoa whoa whoa

Turn around, take a picture
Now I'm part of the A-team
It means nothing at all, it means nothing...
My best friend's bad habits
Now he's fuckin' my lady
I know that he was crazy
But he just goes on and on and on and on and on and on and on

CHORUS

And everything's gonna be alright
When I hold you
I never knew I could come undone
Saffron lies, saffron lies

In a world that's moving on too...
