Track Name: Place I Know
I’ve lived here all my life
It’s a place where the fields stretch far and wide
Tucked away in the woodlands
Wind spreads it music, flows through the treetops at will
Up on the hills is where I long to be
After I’m gone I’ll remain there eternally
Views that stretch further than buzzards can see
Captures you’re mind, stays inside never leaves

In a solitary garden
Rose petals fall to the ground
On a hot summers evening
Passion flowers fall to the ground

People come and people go
But the clouds cruise the skies, just like before
Day paints it blue to grey, night casts it black
But the magic remains, every time I come back

In a solitary garden
Hills mask the sunset
Rose petals fall to the ground
On a hot summers evening
Rain floods the sunset
Passion flowers fall to the ground

Life is a climb to summits high
Scaling those hurdles on your path
Till our final living day
Some just have hope, whilst others pray
Not just a place that resides in the mind
There lie the roots tied deep inside
And you’ll never let it go
This is not just a place, it’s a place I know

In a solitary garden
Hills mask the sunset
Rose petals fall to the ground
On a hot summers evening
Rain floods the sunset
Passion flowers fall to the ground

Life is a climb to summits high
Scaling those hurdles on your path
Till our final living day
Some just have hope, whilst others pray
Not just a place that resides in the mind
There lie the roots tied deep inside
And you’ll never let it go
This is not just a place, it’s a place I know

It’s a place I know
It’s a place I know
It’s a place I know
It’s a place I know
Track Name: Autumn Again
First time I saw you
On a stormy autumn day
The air was moving in cool breezes
And your hair in golden waves
I caught you eye for a moment
Perfect cobalt blue
I thought that I must be dreaming
There’s no one else like you

Then you came to my concert that night
I thought that you must be mistaken
But no, we got talking we got on real well
I know I’ll never forget that night
Your smile makes me smile
You’re the only one that can make me feel this way

On heart, one soul
One body out of control
Your mind, my mind
One heart, one soul
One body out of control
Your mind, my mind

It’s autumn again
It’s been a long time
We’ve been through testing waters
But we’ve come through just fine
I’m always going to look out for you
I’ll cast your fears aside
We’re only going to climb up higher
Because we stand side to side

On heart, one soul
One body out of control
Your mind, my mind
One heart, one soul
One body out of control
Your mind, my mind
Track Name: Rock Bottom
She said goodnight
I know it’s downhill from here
She said it doesn’t feel right
I’m closer to the cliff edge
I never say what I mean
And now I’ll never tell her
She’ll think it doesn’t matter
I’m closer to the rocks at the bottom baby

Please, save me from falling
I’ve got no parachute so,
Please, I can’t stop sliding
I’m almost rock bottom baby

So far down
So far down

She’s out tonight
I’m wondering if I’ll see her
She’ll be dressed up and looking beautiful
Do I really want to see her
I know that I’ll get angry
Being so close but oh so far away and
Maybe I shouldn’t go tonight
There’s no use in just sitting at home alone and hiding

Please, save me from falling
I’ve got no parachute so,
Please, I can’t stop sliding
I’m almost rock bottom baby

So far down
So far down

I can’t seem to climb
Back up to where I fell
I’m a long way down and
I’m almost rock bottom
I can’t seem to climb
Back up to where I fell
I’m a long way down and
I’m almost rock bottom

Long way down
Long way down
Long way down
Such a long way down
Track Name: Streetlights
On a frozen winter’s night
All is calm and still outside
It seems a lifetime since you left
I still try to trace you steps

You’re in my memories set in stone
You’re in my memories set in stone

The streetlights are blinding
I enter the woods and I’m slowly finding
I can’t see the path ahead
The darkness fills my mind with regrets
I must be strong the wise man said
But the shadows play tricks with my head
It’s too late to turn around
In the darkness I hear the sound

Closing all around me
The footsteps on the ground
Closing in behind me

High up above the stars shine bright
The night owl glides in peaceful flight
The pictures of you on the wall
Sometimes I think I hear you calling

You’re in my memories set in stone
You’re in my memories set in stone

The streetlights are blinding
I enter the woods and I’m slowly finding
I can’t see the path ahead
The darkness fills my mind with regrets
I must be strong the wise man said
But the shadows play tricks with my head
It’s too late to turn around
In the darkness I hear the sound
I must be strong the wise man said
But the shadows play tricks with my head
It’s too late to turn around
In the darkness I hear the sound

Closing all around me
The footsteps on the ground
Closing in behind me
Track Name: All Cried Out
Seconds passing by
Minutes in your mind
Hours of your life
Washed away
Is it time to leave yet
Or should you stay
And finish what you started
On a distant day

The tears start to flow
You feel like letting go
Before you’re all cried out
So place your hand in mine
I’ll help you through this time
I’ll cast away your doubts

Searching the horizon
For a lighthouse
Searching the horizon
Through the mist
Swimming in deep water
You hold your breath
I think it’s time to surface
You’ve tried your best

The tears start to flow
You feel like letting go
Before you’re all cried out
So place your hand in mine
I’ll help you through this time
I’ll cast away your doubts

I’ll cast away your doubts
Track Name: Shades Of Grey
There’s uncertainty
Between you and me
Consuming all my time
Running circles in my mind

So I just thought I would say
There’s always someone in my way
Yes I just thought I would say
There’s always something in my way

But not today
Because I’m sick of this shade of grey
So let’s go back to black and white
The colours of our day and night
And although I don’t like to admit
It feels like I’ve already lost the fight

So I think it’s time to say
I’ve been hiding away
These feelings in my head
That are driving me wild

Like you do

So I just thought I would say
There’s always someone in my way
Yes I just thought I would say
There’s always something in my way

But not today
Because I’m sick of this shade of grey
So let’s go back to black and white
The colours of our day and night
And although I don’t like to admit
It feels like I’ve already lost the fight
Track Name: Kill The Lights
Rumble strip game, always the same
Driving at night with the headlights on
Kill the lights game, always the same
Definite danger different road
Hazard light game, always the same
Follow the cat’s eyes up ahead, glowing red
Engine stop game, always the same
Rolling in silence like a ghost

Just another night driving game
Trying to find some mental stimulus again
It all started with a rumble strip game
Swinging left to right across the road again

Just another night driving game
Just another night driving game
Blue lights flash in the rear view mirror
Now everything seems so much clearer
Just another night driving game
Let’s do the rumble strip rhythm again

Just another night driving game
Trying to find some mental stimulus again
It all started with a rumble strip game
Swinging left to right across the road again

Just another night driving game
Just another night driving game
Blue lights flash in the rear view mirror
Now everything seems so much clearer
Just another night driving game
Let’s do the rumble strip rhythm again
Track Name: Reckless
She’s been drinking
Won’t stop thinking
About the one she lost before
She’s been smoking
Won’t stop toking
Until she finally hits the floor

It’s such a long way home
And she can’t begin to find her way
It’s such a long way home
And she can find the words to say

How did this all start
Families been torn apart
Chasing after money instead of feelings
Materialistic poison darts
Now they sit drinking
Thinking and smoking
Over what they’ve fucked up
Inside they’re choking

This time she’s gone to far
She’s stumbling and reckless
Doesn’t hear the screeching breaks
Drunken fool and speeding car
Metal and crimson
Lives smashed to pieces
She’ll never have a drink again
She’ll never feel the warmth of the sun

It’s such a long way home
And she can’t begin to find her way
It’s such a long way home
And she can find the words to say

Please take me home
Please take me away
Track Name: Ragdoll
You’re twisting the knife
Confusing everything I thought I felt inside
You’re twisting the knife
Disproving everything I thought I had right
Time passes us by
If you don’t know yourself then how can I?
Thoughts passing us through
If I don’t know myself then how can you?

You’ve tightened the not
Are you going to hang me yet or let me drop?
You’ve tightened the not
Are you going to hang me yet or let me drop?

Down, Low
Throw me to the ground kick me about
Ragdoll, down, low
You’re pushing me away but won’t let go
Ragdoll, ragdoll, dust
All my armour’s crumbling in to rust
Ragdoll, ragdoll, dust
You’ve broken all my love and all my trust

You’re claws break my skin
But I never seem to bleed enough
You’re teeth sinking in
But I never seem to bleed enough

You’ve tightened the not
Are you going to hang me yet or let me drop?
You’ve tightened the not
Are you going to hang me yet or let me drop?

Down, Low
Throw me to the ground kick me about
Ragdoll, down, low
You’re pushing me away but won’t let go
Ragdoll, ragdoll, dust
All my armour’s crumbling in to rust
Ragdoll, ragdoll, dust
You’ve broken all my love and all my trust
Track Name: Footsteps
The snow is falling
Falling to the ground
I hear you calling
Such a distant sound
I feel myself falling
Such a long way down
I’m reaching for you
But you’re one step out of reach

Out of reach

I try to follow
In your footsteps
Through the white out
Through the storm
If you’ve fallen
I will follow
If you’ve fallen
I won’t hesitate to jump

So if I find you
Sure as hell I’ll try
I’ll try to help you
Or I’ll say our last goodbye
I feel myself falling
Such a long way down
I’m reaching for you
But you’re one step out of reach

Out of reach

I try to follow
In your footsteps
Through the white out
Through the storm
If you’ve fallen
I will follow
If you’ve fallen
I won’t hesitate to jump

I won’t hesitate
To follow where you fall
Track Name: Empty Streets
She turned away from me and, she said goodnight
She turned away from me and, she said goodnight

I left and went on my way, down the empty street
I left and went on my way, down the empty street

The wind was kicking up leaves and plastic bags and dust
And all the metal window frames, were covered in rust

I don’t know why she left me, she wouldn’t say
I don’t know why she left me, she just faded away

The wind was kicking up leaves and plastic bags and dust
And all the metal window frames, were covered in rust

I don’t know why she left me, she wouldn’t say
I don’t know why she left me, she just faded away
