1. FRAGILE DREAMS

"Tonight your soul sleeps, but one day you will feel real pain,
Maybe then you will see mee as i am,
A fragile wreck on a storm of emotion"

Countless times i trusted you,
I let you back in,
Knowing... Yearning... You know
I should have run... But i stayed

Maybe i always knew,
My fragile dreams would be broken for you.

Today i introduced myself,
To my own feelings,
In silent agony, after all these years,
They spoke to me... After all these years

Maybe i always knew...




2. LEAVE NO TRACE

Born to the glare of the senses
Spoon. fed reality infused
A new inherent .
Passive contentment
You are so easily amused

Here and now we
Are gone in a heartbeat
A dream in the
Passage of time
Chances are fading
This world isn't waiting
The moment is passing you by

Questions lie beneath the surface
The fools are fooled once again

Benign coincidence .
We stole our existence
And gladly cast it to the wind

Here and now we
Are gone in a heartbeat
A dream in the
Passage of time
Chances are fading
This world isn't waiting
The moment is passing you by

Slowly spinning on the wind back home...




3. INNER SILENCE

When the silence beckons,
And the day draws to a close,
When the light of your life sighs,
And love dies in your eyes,
Only then will i realise,
What you mean to me.




4. ONE LAST GOODBYE

How I needed you
How I bleed now you're gone
In my dreams i see you
I awake so alone

I know you didn't want to leave
Your heart yearned to stay
But the strength i always loved in you
Finally gave way

Somehow I knew you would leave me this way
Somehow I knew you could never stay
And in the early morning light
After a silent peaceful night
You took my heart away
And I grieve

In my dreams I can see you
I can tell you how I feel
In my dreams I can hold you
And it feels so real

I still feel the pain
I still feel your love
I still feel the pain
I still feel your love

And somehow I knew you could never, never stay
And somehow I knew you would leave me
And in the early morning light
After a silent peaceful night
You took my heart away
I wished, I wished you could have stayed




5. ARE YOU THERE?

Are you there?
Is it wonderful to know
All the ghosts...
All the ghosts...
Freak my selfish out
My mind is happy
Need to learn to let it go
I know you'd do no harm to me

But since you've been gone i've been lost inside
Tried and failed as we walked by the riverside
Oh i wish you could see the love in her eyes
The best friend that eluded you lost in time
Burned alive in the heat of a grieving mind

But what can i say now?
And it couldn't be more wrong
Cos there's no one there
Unmistakably lost and without a care
Have we lost all the love that we could share
And it's wearing me down
And it's turning me round
And I can't find a way
Now to find that it out
Where are you when I need you...

Are you there?




6. ANGELICA

Where are you tonight?
Wild flower in starlit heaven
Still enchanted in flight
Obsessions lament to freedom

A timeless word, the meanings changed
But i'm still burning in your flames
Incessant, lustral masquerade
Unengaged, dim lit love didn't taste the same

And I wonder if you ever wonder the same
And I still wonder




7. A NATURAL DISASTER

It's been a long cold winter without you
I've been crying on the inside over you
You just slipped through my fingers as life turned away
It's been a long cold winter since that day

Its hard to find
Hard to find
Hard to find the strength now but I try
And I don't want to
Don't want to
Don't want to speak now
Of what's gone by
Cause no matter what I say
No matter what I do
I can't change what happened
No matter what I say
No matter what I do
I can't change what happened

You just slipped through my fingers
And I feel so ashamed
You just slipped through my fingers
And I have paid

Cause no matter what I say
No matter what I do
I can't change what happened
No matter what I say
No matter what I do
I can't change what happened
No no I can't change

Just slipped through my fingers
And I feel so ashamed
You just slipped through my fingers
And I have paid.




8. TEMPORARY PEACE

Deep inside the silence
Staring out upon the sea
The waves are washing over
Half forgotten memory

Deep within the moment
Laughter floats upon the breeze
Rising and falling dying down within me
And I swear I never knew, I never knew how it could be
And all this time all I had inside was what I
Couldn't see
I swear I never knew, I never knew
How it couldn't be
All the waves are
Washing over all that hurts inside of me

Beyond this beautiful horizon
Lies a dream for you and I
This tranquil scene is
Still unbroken by the
Rumours in the sky
But there's a storm
Closing in voices
Crying on the wind
The serenade is growing
Colder breaks my soul
That tries to sing
And there's so many many
Thoughts
When I try to go to sleep
But with you I start to feel
A sort of temporary peace
There's a drift in and out




9. FLYING

Started a search to no avail
A light that shines behind the veil trying to find it
And all around us everywhere
Is all that we could ever share if only we could see it
Believe there's true thoughts beyond me
Life ever changing weaving destiny

And it feels like i'm flying above you
Dream that i'm dying to find the truth
Seems that you'r trying to bring me down
Back down to earth back down to earth

Layers of dust and yesterdays
Shadows fading in the haze of what I couldn't say
And though I said my hands were tied
Times have changed and now I find I'm free for the first time
Feel so close to everything now
Strange how life makes sense in time now

And it feels like I'm flying above you
Dream that I'm dying to find the truth
Seems like your trying to bring me down
Back down to earth back down to earth
Back down to earth back down to earth (x2)




10. UNCHAINED (TALES OF THE UNEXPECTED)

Unbroken unchained relentless to regain
What we have lost
A grip on reality screaming deep down within me as i count the cost

Holding on in spite of the doubt
Always trying to find it out
That we could find a way back there
Beyond the moon right through the air
Always remembering...
Always remembering...

Holding on in spite of the doubt
Always trying to find it out
That we could find a way back there
Beyond the moon right through the air
Always remembering...(x4)
