Place I Know 05:01
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

Autumn Again 06:01
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

Rock Bottom 05:15
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

Streetlights 05:33
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

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

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

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

Reckless 02:04
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

Ragdoll 08:11
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

Footsteps 06:07
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

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
