LYRICS

THIS TIME

AWAKENING
Don’t look at me like that
You know I will react
For all the times that you pushed me through that door
For all the signs that I just chose to ignore
Why do you have to be so cruel you know that I
Will tell you now…

It’s not ok to make me feel that
I’m afraid this won’t begin
You can’t say the way I’m living
Fits the template of your sin
It’s not your choice, this is my voice
I’m awakening

Don’t speak to me that way
I’ve got plenty here to say
To make it clear that it’s not a state of mind
To make it known that I will not compromise
With someone just so unwilling
Don’t tell me what I am

It’s not ok to make me feel that
I’m afraid this won’t begin
You can’t say the way I’m living
Fits the template of your sin
It’s not your choice, this is my voice

It’s not ok to make me feel that
I’m afraid this won’t begin
You can’t say the way I’m living
Fits the template of your sin
Have you no shame, when you’re to blame

So much envy in your cause
So much resistance in your fall
I won’t let you have it all
In the end it’s me whose standing tall

It’s not ok to make me feel that
I’m afraid this won’t begin
You can’t say the way I’m living
Fits the template of your sin
It’s not your choice, this is my voice

It’s not ok to make me feel that
I’m afraid this won’t begin
You can’t say the way I’m living
Fits the template of your sin
Have you no shame when you’re to blame

So much envy in your cause
So much resistance in your fall
I won’t let you have it all
In the end it’s me whose standing tall
I’m awakening


BELIEVE
I can’t take it away
I remember feeling how it felt to feel alive
I listened to your melody that night
Accepting he was in your sights
Now you’re bound to him you think the sun will shine
I can’t take it away

So wild, this recklessness is ruining my sight
I refuse to lose my vision and my fight
Let me tell you love so holy and devine
That your happiness is intertwined with mine

You can’t take it away this time
You can’t take it away
You know, so go and show your world
Believe, see all that you’ve achieved

This floor has been beneath us
When we couldn’t open doors
Held our bodies when our minds could take no more
Now I see you as I never did before

You can’t fake what it takes this time
You can’t fake what it takes

You know, so go and show your world
Believe, see all that you’ve achieved
You know, so go and show your world
Believe, see all that you’ve achieved


ANOTHER DAY

You passed the humour for aggression as you gently lose your grip
I see through holes with intuition as I gently take a sip
It’s just a boy sat there in desperation and despair
You’re clutching round at any cost
To catch the love you know you’ve lost

And now I see it’s crystal clear
If I hadn’t seen the light you’d have made me disappear

You have got to love yourself before you can love anybody else
You’ve got to trust yourself before you can trust anybody else

You took me by the reins, you helped manipulate this brain
Until the coldness and the taking nearly made me go insane
And I cannot and I will not be the cost of victory
I’d lift you up if I was strong enough if I didn’t care for me

Now I see it’s crystal clear
If I hadn’t seen the light you’d have made me disappear

You have got to love yourself before you can love anybody else
You have got to trust yourself before you can trust anybody else

The love we show ourselves will help to never feel alone
Take the love you feel and give it back to those you know

You passed the humour for aggression as you gently lose your grip
I see through holes with intuition as I gently take a sip
It’s just a boy sat there in desperation and despair
Clutching round at any cost
To catch the love you know you lost

Now it’s here, a change of mind
Keep looking at the light and let the shadows fall behind

Here comes another day, another chance for you to find your way
Take this opportunity, this turning point to prove you can be brave
You have got to love yourself before you can love anybody else
You have got to trust yourself before you can trust anybody else


TROUBLES

Wake from a night full of sorrow
Carry your grief into tomorrow
It’s all you can taste from this bitter need
In the absence of hope you can’t get what you need

I’m framing this time
I hold it divine
Push it away just to keep it in line
I won’t let you challenge this certainty

They’re only troubles
In this lifetime we’ll find we can open our minds
As we stumble
In the darkness we’re blind
But believe me

Misfortunes are thick upon the hollow ground
I’m climbing the walls because I can’t sit down
Smashing the glass because I can’t see out
I remember it now

We’ll swallow the truth
To keep all the proof
You took what I said and made it about you
I won’t let you ruin this certainty

They’re only troubles
In this lifetime we’ll find we can open our minds
As we stumble
In the darkness we’re blind
But believe me

We’re gonna make it
You know you’re gonna make it through
You know you’re gonna make it
You know you’re gonna make it through
You know you’re gonna make it
You know you’re gonna make it through
You know you’re gonna make it
You know you’re gonna make it through

And we still believe in monsters
It was ourselves we should have feared
And we will never reach the surface
If we are drowning in our tears

Now I can see
The devil was me
Seeing our flaws will set us free
I won’t you let you challenge this certainty

They’re only troubles
In this lifetime we’ll find we can open our minds
As we stumble in the darkness we’re blind
But believe me

Wake from a night full of sorrow
Don’t carry your grief into tomorrow


THE YELLOW ROAD

The madness lit a flame
That burned before my eyes
Desire takes the blame
Love tells such pretty lies…

At the start was only you
You took the light and made it true
Oh Lord forsake me, your love will break me
You ruled the night and saved the day
You showed me all my wicked ways
Oh Lord forsake me

Cos you let me fall
On the yellow road
And I heard it all
This lie forever told
And I built that wall
So I couldn’t run
In a quiet storm I came undone
I used my heart to feel the sun
And I won’t stop now cos I’ve only just begun

The wreckage of the Fairytale
And our eternal youth
In dreaming diamond skies
Life tells such ugly truths

In the end it’s only me
All I need is to believe
Oh Lord forsake me, your love will break me

Lead me on, for I have you
I only have myself to lose
Oh Lord forsake me

Cos you let me fall
On the yellow road
And I heard it all
This lie forever told
And I built that wall
So I couldn’t run
In a quiet storm I came undone
I used my heart to feel the sun
And I won’t stop now cos I’ve only just begun

No, don’t go, you’re all I know
No, don’t go, you’re all I know

I will seek you out
I know where you hide
Alone in my mind
You’re all I know
I will seek you out
I know where you hide
You’re all I know

Cos you let me fall
On the yellow road
And I heard it all
This lie forever told
And I built that wall
So I couldn’t run
In a quiet storm I came undone
I used my heart to feel the sun
And I won’t stop now cos I’ve only just begun


ALL THE WEBS

I practice patience
I want happiness
I choose this
You have deceived me
Or I deceived myself
And I wait on this shelf

Who am I
What have I been
This disillusioned paradise
This curious disease
That eats me from the inside out
And keeps me on my knees

Convince me
And I’ll believe
In all the webs that I…

Keep moving forward
And life will follow me
This I must live to see
I’m escaping
Let us see what remains
How I live in fear of change

Who am I
What have I been
This disillusioned paradise
This curious disease
That eats me from the inside out
And keeps me on my knees

Convince me
And I’ll believe
In all the webs that I…
All the webs that I weave
All the webs that I weave
All the webs that I weave

The truth we seek is not a place
There is no road to reach it
To find beauty and the love that we crave
We must learn to teach it, we must learn to teach it

The truth we seek is not a place
There is no road to reach it
To find beauty and the love that we crave
We must learn to teach it

Who am I
What will I be
I need to fight the want to know
I’m desperate to see
The pressure from the outside in
Is creeping up on me
To succeed
Take what you need
From all the webs that I, all the webs that I weave


ALL WE NEED

Lately you’re twisting slowly, lost entirely
Wonder at watching life unfolding simply
All this time blinds us inside
We fight for smiles behind your pride

Forever it doesn’t know its boundaries
Together we know love is all we need

Time stands still for us
There’s not enough ways to show
You’re good enough

There was a time that I looked into your eyes
And innocence it kept your smile so very wide
No reasons shared, you care I know
The smallest bud we’ll let it grow

Time stands still for us
There’s not enough ways to show
You’re good enough
You need to know you’re not
What you are going through
There’ll be enough
Hands to hold
Take control of you
You will know
You will know

Lately I’ve seen you hiding
Don’t be frightened

Time stands still for us
There’s not enough ways to show
You’re good enough
You need to know you’re not
What you are going through
There’ll be enough
Hands to hold
Take control of you
You will know
You will know
You will know
You will know


THROUGH THE NIGHT

The day falls away and my eyelids are heavy
My heart beats so fast my sorrow so steady

For each word we’ve shared through spit and despair
There’s a million thoughts that fly
Above our heads and in our dreams
We laugh as we cry

The day so far away, the darkness holding hope
Whisper a wish unknown, an ability to cope

I cannot be sad for the life that we had
I cannot be scared for the time we will share

Let’s talk it through just me and you
Your words keep me alive

The hours count your distant days
Go headstrong through the night

I share your dreams, I share your pride
And Lord knows I’ve tried
The doors will close but the walls we’ll climb
Always know I’m by your side

The sky will break, the tears will fall
But I know you’ll be alright
Let’s talk it through just me and you
Let’s not run out of time, time


HAVE IT ALL

Inside the door in these
Four walls we make believe
I’m blind beyond your stare

Behind the barriers
I’m stealing this time because
I want you to be aware

It’s the admiration pouring out
It’s a life I won’t live without
It’s this second and all we’ve found
It’s our vision, just look around

We have it all
There is nothing that we can’t do
There is so much that we have yet to see

We’ve come this far
And we’re running through open doors
There is nothing so big that we can’t dream

Leave all the words behind
The stress we put to one side
The struggles that we have faced
The solace that we have found
The stake we put in this ground
Together we’ll find our place

It’s the reason I come alive
It’s believing in this fight
It’s the worry that soaks our minds
And the affirmations in our lives

It’s the quiet times
It’s nature’s warning
It hurts like hell to see you falling

We have it all
There is nothing that we can’t do
There is so much that we have yet to see
We’ve come this far
And we’re running through open doors
There is nothing so big that we can’t dream

It’s in the night
It’s in your hands
It’s every time we misunderstand
It’s in our lines, it’s in our story
It’s all the grief basked in the glory
And it’s the selfishness, it’s the surprise
It’s in the hunger for your eyes
And I want to call you to let you know
That you are everything within my world

We have it all
There is nothing that we can’t do
There is so much that we have yet to see

We’ve come this far
And we’re running through open doors
There is nothing so big that we can’t dream

It’s in the night
It’s in our hands
It’s every time we misunderstand
It’s in our lines, it’s in our story
It’s all the grief basked in the glory

KEEPING US ALIVE

We wanted everything to come our way by this very day
We wanted stars so bright to see the lightening before it strikes
Though we’ve passed a hundred thousand miles still I stand, still I stand
Photographs of twenty months ago I know we can, still think we can
Here I am, here I am
I will stand
So hungry my heart, bewildered my eyes, I’m tumbling down and it’s eating me alive, it’s eating me alive

We craved the crying out, the silent screams amongst the loud
Chew through the ropes and hope that we don’t choke on the words we spoke
A cunning plan to blind the world outside, open your eyes, open your eyes
Break ourselves and taste the urge to rage and fight with fire, we fight with fire
Cry it out, cry it out
I will shout
I’m being consumed, the thoughts have all flown, my mind overgrown and it’s eating me alive, it’s eating me alive

The taste of bittersweet keeps us on our feet punishing to see
I long to push it down, feet on the ground with our head in clouds
Dreams confined to draw between the lines we learn of life, we learn of life
And they will wait and we will still berate we should have learnt, still to time learn
Listen now, listen now
I’m calling out
I write it all down, the letters all torn, devotion still sworn and it’s keeping me alive, it’s keeping me alive

Can’t throw this all away on the desperate need of another day
I won’t forget myself when these withered days are on the shelf
Go recreate while you self-generate to make it new and see this through
Recognise that you fight inside and bite the truth, go bite the truth
Take my hand, take my hand
Take my heart
The air that we breathe will be all that we need aspirations aside it’s keeping us alive
It’s keeping us alive
It’s keeping us alive
It’s keeping us alive
It’s keeping us alive
It’s keeping us alive


THE ORDER

Make me see through, help me undo
Break me gently, take me

Defences were down in the darkness between us
Abandon those feelings you know you can’t keep them

Pushed to the floor in this war I created
I tried not to listen but your mouth dictated
I gave you my reasons
You make me so weary eyed
You decide
We collide

Pushed to my limits you make me feel different
Imperfectly pure you always were persistent
So full of wonder
Consider this now you’ve tried
Step inside
Don’t be denied

Down to the darkness we go
Claim the unknown
Disregard control
The order we know
The chaos is blown
Into this world that we call home

Reality blinds me I can’t see your face
Oceans apart with a heart so disgraced
A body so broken
A mind full of better days
It’s just a phase
We’ll find a way

Down to the darkness we go
And claim the unknown
Disregard control
The order we know
The chaos is blown
Into this world that we call home

Make me see through, help me undo
Break me gently, take me
Make me see through, help me undo
Break me gently, take me
Make me see through, help me undo
Break me gently, take me

Down to the darkness we go
Claim the unknown
Disregard control
The order we know
The chaos is blown
Into this world that we call home

Defences were down in the darkness between us
Abandon those feelings you know you can’t keep them


LIE AWAKE

We lie awake at night
And we wonder why
We have to break inside
To appreciate this ride

You stand there bold
Your flaws are all told
We have no hold
Of how this unfolds
For now the rivers will take control
Over any old doubt that you hold

With your delicate mind
You’re drawing hopes in mine
And to my surprise
Could I be falling for those eyes

Here now, forgetting the pain
There’s no more self
Here left to shame
It’s here everything else I fear
Can hold off for one more year

I’ll stop worrying about it
Let my mind be still
For this worrying won’t change
What’s at the top of this hill
I’ll stop worrying about it
Let my mind be still
For this worrying won’t change
What’s at the top of this hill

Your eyes so wide
They swallow me down
Light up inside
I feel like I’m found
Today nothing can take away
The wonder that we create

For now the rivers will take control
Over any old doubt that you hold
It’s here everything else I fear
Can hold off for one more year

Here now, forgetting the pain
There’s no more self
Here left to shame
It’s here everything else I fear
Can hold off for one more year

Here now, forgetting the pain
There’s no more self here left to shame
Here now, forgetting the pain
There’s no more self here left to shame

It’s here everything else I fear
Can hold off for one more year

I’ll stop worrying about it
Let my mind be still
For this worrying won’t change
What’s at the top of this hill
I’ll stop worrying about it
Let my mind be still
For this worrying won’t change
What’s at the top of this hill

COUNT OUR LUCK

I tried to move the mountains
So I could touch the sun
I tried to win by counting points and asking everyone
I thought my mind was winning and my mind thought that was true
When I thought the game was over, I was lost in thoughts of you
I buried any doubt deep down with wonder and with hope
I swallowed down the fear of hurting you until I choked

And I tried to swim this ocean
And I tried to sail our sea
But the land was so much further than I needed it to be
You tried to find your patience by giving me your time understanding how this fickle heart of mine can tell no lies

Count our luck and let go of this fear
Can’t change the path that brought us up to here
We made our choice we’ll work through all this pain
No thoughts are final nothing will remain
Go love with all that you can find
And use your heart to open up your mind

I tried to build an empire on foundations made of silk
It may not have stood the test of time but I’m proud of what we built
Now go and ask more questions, go and chase your wildest dreams
And always be yourself at times when nothings as it seems
Trying won’t be wasted and I know it’s not the end
Trying isn’t failing when we close the door as friends

Count our luck and let go of this fear
Can’t change the path that brought us up to here
We made our choice we’ll work through all this pain
No thoughts are final nothing will remain
Go love with all that you can find
And use your heart to open up your mind, mind

Go love with all that you can find
Count our luck and let go of this fear
Can’t change the path that brought us up to here
We made our choice we’ll work through all this pain
No thoughts are final nothing will remain
Go love with all that you can find
And use your heart to open up your mind
And I’ll thank my lucky stars I had my time
To hold you dear and know that you were mine


FOUR O’CLOCK

Took all these years for us to disappear you made it clear
How can love be so forgiving
Took all those tears to realise my worth and who comes first
You still dictate the life I’m living

You made the move to seal our fate taking back the chance of winning
You took my time my precious time the chance of new beginnings
Years gone by, still don’t know which way to go so tell me why

Cleared the mess felt sweet success in mending broken bones
How can life be so undoing
Every intensive word suppressed when saying yes to you
How can love be so pursuing

You made the move to seal our fate taking back the chance of winning
You took my time my precious time the chance of new beginnings
Years gone by, still don’t know which way to go so tell me why

I watched you fall in love I watched you fall apart with him
How can time keep us from living
Always in the dark and always clutching to his heart
A vital part so often missing

Years gone by, still don’t know which way to go so tell me why
Years gone by, still don’t know which way to go so tell me why

You know me
You use that fact to pull her back to keep her low she’s capable you know
Now hear me
You see it now so obvious
Always you and never us
The years I’ve tried
You’ve shown me the way to go
This is goodbye
You’ve shown me the way to go
This is goodbye
You’ve shown me the way to go
This is goodbye


EVERY TIME

I can’t say it out loud
I’m the luckiest girl in the world since you came back
I know cos I pinch myself to see if it’s real, it’s real

I think we might be learning how to trust
And I feel in time I don’t want that much
I don’t know where this is going but I know
Whatever happens our love will be gold

I’m willing to take on the weight of the world to save you from your pain
I’m willing to walk to the edge of the earth to hear you call my name
We’ve been bitten and bruised, but we always pursued
And every time I come back to you, I’ll come back to you

If I could make just one wish
I’d close my eyes and it would be this
I was never myself I was never what I wanted to be
But this time will show us how, this time right now

I’m willing to take on the weight of the world to save you from your pain
I’m willing to walk to the edge of the earth to hear you call my name
We’ve been bitten and bruised, but we always pursued
And every time I come back to you, I’ll come back to you

This time
I’m feeling a change cos we’ve grown
This time
It all seems to work now you’ve shown
Your heart
Everything’s changing right now
This time
Our love’s rearranging somehow
This time
It will be better I know
This time
A change will help us to grow
Your heart
Has left all the doubt far behind
This time
Ourselves we are learning to find
This time

I’m willing to take on the weight of the world to save you from your pain
I’m willing to walk to the edge of the earth to hear you call my name
We’ve been bitten and bruised, but we always pursued
And every time I come back to you, I’ll come back to you
