Track Name: Let it be Easy
Let it be easy
Watching the ground beneath my feet
falling away and I’m completely
taken over by the fear that I get
now I just breathe - this cannot be
I would give anything for ease
How can an anchor lose it’s way?
is this a game we play?
your eyes have given you away
Just for a while, a fragment of time
let it be easy.
Track Name: Imminent Pain
Is this a gift or punishment?
My heart was safe, then somehow you were sent.
This is meant to be heaven sent, but I don’t believe in heaven
so I’m wondering where my time went.

But you said to me, something about love, something about grief
but I feel the same with or without this imminent pain.

Said you know how fast it’s gone but,
you said no, it’s taken so so long.
Well I’m stumbling now and we’re falling in,
this warmth is familiar, I’ve felt how it can burn.

But you said to me, something about love, something about grief
but I feel the same with or without this imminent pain.

I could shout it from the rooftops, only birds would hear.
I’d rather hold you close so I could whisper in your ear.
I could yell it from the mountains, but who would I please
You think that I’m ashamed but you’re the only one I need.

But you said to me, something about love, something about grief
but I feel the same with or without this imminent pain.
Track Name: Wake Me Up
Wake me up. Let this be a bad dream.
Let this be a warning, woken by a scream.
Tell me straight, did I suffer that scene?
will this stay with me until it hurts to breathe?

oh and where, where do I go now?
If this really happened, it’s not where but how.
I’m locked inside my limbs and I can’t get out..
won’t you please wake me up.

Shake me sane, did you feel me scream.
Can’t you see that I’m so deep I am drowning.

oh and where, where, where do I go now?
If this really happened, it’s not where but how.
I’m locked inside my limbs and I can’t get out..
won’t you please, won’t you please,
won’t you please
wake me up.
Track Name: Let Me Down
Sit me down, tell me what you see
because it doesn’t seem all that fair to me

When you kick, I fall
and when you let yourself fall, I fly

In my hands, I have all of you
baby don’t you know I can make you move

When you kick, I fall
and when you let yourself fall, I fly

And I know my feet don’t touch the ground
will you leave me hanging or gently let me down
Track Name: Violins
I’ve got you painted under my eyelids
I’ve got you swimming under my skin
I’ve got you to blame for my inner violins
but I cannot change where my thoughts have been.

Wish you knew why my bridges are breaking
is it true, that a heart can be whole?
if you do let me in, I’ll come shaking
you’re the one, you are the one I want to know.

And if I can’t rest, does that make me wicked?
Does that make it wrong?
The fire is long gone.. the fire is long gone.

I’ve got you painted under my eyelids
I’ve got you swimming under my skin
I’ve got you to blame for my inner violins
but I cannot change where my thoughts have been.
Track Name: Empty Rooms
I will put my finger on the bow for you
when you wrap your heart,
in a package you’ve prepared
for someone new.

We can just pretend that I’m not here
singing to you dear while you move on
I’ve been chasing empty rooms for too long

You give them flowers, I will keep the roots
when she asks the petals as they fall
they won’t say it all

We can just pretend that I’m not here
singing to you dear while you move on
I’ve been chasing empty rooms for too long

I’m fit for a fall.
I cannot give you anymore,
unless I lose it all

We can just pretend that I’m not here
falling for you dear, while you move on
I’ve been chasing empty rooms for too long

I will put my finger on the bow for you.
Track Name: Raking Leaves
See the leaves are lying, on the dying grass
you know I'm always thinking of you and I let the time pass
I want to love you, want to love you, want to spend some time with you
I want to see you, want to be, here with you

Come in, come in.. you're always welcome in my house..
Come in, come in.. you're always welcome in my heart..

I wish you were here with me, I wish I wasn't raking leaves
but now the summer's gone and here I stand and shiver in the breeze
I want to love you, want to love you, want to spend some time with you
I want to see you, want to be, here with you

Come in, come in.. you're always welcome in my house..
Come in, come in.. you're always welcome in my heart..
Track Name: Bad Habits
Bad habits are creeping in
Bad timing seems to be my thing,
and I’m sorry for all the pain I caused,
I never meant to hurt you.

I don’t know where this road is going but
I’m not going to drag you along
I don’t know where this river’s flowing but
I’m not going to let you drown anymore.

Doesn’t something rise from the ashes
doesn’t something come to heal these cuts and gashes.
And it’s hard because the flames they keep on burning and what’s more,
my heart just won’t catch on.

I don’t know where this road is going but
I’m not going to drag you along
I don’t know where this river’s flowing but
I’m not going to let you drown anymore.

Hiding behind pages for a while, there’s an element of truth to everything
and every time I see you smile, my heart breaks a little more inside

I don’t know where this road is going but
I’m not going to drag you along
I don’t know where this river’s flowing but
I’m not going to let you drown anymore.
Track Name: So Many Days
Darling, would you do me a favor
wrap your arms around me one more time.
You know I fear that love has lost it’s flavor
your embrace can do no harm

let me call you mine
let me taste the words upon my tongue
let me call you mine
you have so many days, just give me one.

Darling, would you let me lie beside you
switching off my mind with skin to skin
give me somewhere warm to rest my head
for just one day I’m asking, let me in

let me call you mine
let me taste the words upon my tongue
let me call you mine
you have so many days, just give me one.

this might not be my best idea
I might get hooked on you my dear
but I’ll be yours, if you’ll be mine
for just one day, then I’ll be fine

let me call you mine
let me taste the words upon my tongue
let me call you mine

you have so many days, just give me one.
you have so many days, just give me one.
you have so many days, just give me one.
Track Name: What You Want
Are my eyes burning holes in you?
Turn away,
show your back,
do you feel it?
Do.

Does the love take a toll on you
give away,
just a crack,
do you see it?
ooh..

you don’t know what you want
but you know what you want, to want.
but you know what you want, to want.

Can a line take control of you?
just in time,
it’s a watch for the keeping
and ooh..

you don’t know what you want
but you know what you want, to want.
but you know what you want, to want.

Do you think there’s a soul in you?
open up,
take a look,
do you see it?

You don’t know what you want
but you know what you want, to want.
but you know what you want, to want.

Are my eyes burning holes in you?
Track Name: Memory
I was such a fool, to think that this was ever going somewhere new.
We were just repeating history, and other stories from the past.
If you think you want me, maybe you can have a memory or two...
and we’ll make them great, we’ll let them last, and we can keep them
for as long as we like

You... reliving the memory
knowing what will never be
I’d like to give you more than just a little bit of company

How was I to know that loving you would leave me wanting so much more
Now I’m just another ship adrift at sea that’s searching for the shore.
Did you know that all the time I gave you cut me right through to the core?
But I’ll take the pain on any day and I will love you
for as long as I like

You... reliving the memory
knowing what will never be
I’d like to give you more than just a little bit of company

You... reliving the memory
knowing what will never be
I’d like to give you more than just a little bit of company
Track Name: One More Hit
Like a last cigarette, I will relish you;
savor you until the end,
inhale your skin, and stamp you within my memory

But I have to quit you, you're not good for me
I have to give you up, dragging this out is unhealthy
But just like nicotine I'm too easily swayed by your comforting call,
I'll just let you in, for one more sin, it's proximity
Just one more hit of you,
I fill my lungs,
take you in
I like the way you taste like a dirty word
you waste no breath on me
And there's nothing I can say, now I'm craving something
that can never be real.

Now that I've given you up for good
after taking your bittersweet sting
with a lingering pain you'll circle my veins indefinitely

But I have to quit you, you're not good for me
I have to give you up, dragging this out is unhealthy
I like the way you taste like a dirty word
you waste no breath on me
And there's nothing I can say, now I'm craving something
that can never be real.
Like a last cigarette, I will relish you;
savor you until the end,
inhale your skin, and stamp you within my memory
Track Name: Feeling Alright (about it)
I woke up this morning to an empty bed
in an empty house, and an empty head
and I'm feeling alright about it.

They say to find something, make some wise choices,
do the right thing, but I'm still here and I'm
feeling alright about it.

Is there a right way to behave?
can anyone show me the way?
can we not have what we crave
and be alright?
and be alright…

I broke all the cups in my kitchen drawer
now there's shattered glass lying on the floor
and I'm feeling alright about it.

chorus

I'll break all the windows, I’ll tear the wallpaper,
I'll do anything, just to feel better
no one to fight about it.

chorus

I woke up this morning to an empty life
in an empty room, with a kitchen knife
and I'm feeling alright (about it)
Track Name: I Might Be Addicted
I might be addicted to you.
I might be addicted to everything you do.
So I’ll go and we’ll see if I find something new
or am I only addicted to you.
I need a dose of your love before I go
just to see what I’m trying to leave
Just an injection, you might be an infection
in my soul.

I don’t think another pair of lips
could ever taste the same
and I don’t think another voice
could even say my name like you do
like you do...
I might be addicted to you.
I might be addicted to everything you do.
So I’ll go and we’ll see if I find something new
or am I only addicted to you
Track Name: Issues
I've got issues, swimming in my brain
don't you wish you didn't have to see my pain
and I'm a disgrace to this face I'm putting on;
I'm not smiling on the inside at all.
And I know that there is nothing right to say
but I'll say this anyway..
Don't cry, c'os all the clouds will blow on by.
You and I can sit under a clear blue sky.
Don't mind, any bullshit that you hear
those who mind don't matter, those who matter don't mind
we've got issues.
They say that everything will be alright,
just close your eyes tonight, and you will wake up feeling fine
they're not aware that all these problems in my head
won't just go away when I go to bed.
And I know that there is nothing right to say
but I'll say this anyway..
Don't cry, c'os all the clouds will blow on by.
You and I can sit under a clear blue sky.
Don't mind, any bullshit that you hear
those who mind don't matter, those who matter don't mind
we've got issues.
