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.
2.
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.

Wake Me Up 02:18
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.

Let Me Down 02:50
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

Violins 02:15
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.

Empty Rooms 02:32
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.

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..

Bad Habits 02:43
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.

So Many Days 02:45
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.

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?

Memory 02:36
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

One More Hit 03:05
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

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)
14.
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

Issues 03:04
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.
