Pick me up to drag me down Once more before I come undone Fill the cup ‘til the well is drained Though the memory lingers on I can’t believe the words I’m hearing Seasons turn, I can’t decipher the meaning Now there’s nowhere left to run Laugh it up and twist the truth Into the one that suits you best Hoping that it might undo The mistakes you can’t forget Well I’ve grown tired of sitting, waiting To be pulled from my sleep and awakened My dreaming days are over now ‘Cause I can’t get back the time I wasted Hard as I might try to chase it The bitter fruit that I had tasted Tomorrow will be gone Plant a seed and watch it flower That withered in the shade Without her by your side I’m done with dreaming Though I know it’s overdue Just tell me how I can find my way back to you But I can’t get back the time I wasted Hard as I might try to chase it The bitter fruit that I had tasted Tomorrow will be gone

Tell me what’s on your mind You’re wondering how to make it last Forget about all your old problems No sense in dwelling in the past Heard your footsteps on the pavement As you walked on by my door I don’t mean to seem impatient It’s just I wish I saw you more All the strangers that surround me Couldn’t try to understand So come and put your arms around me Put your hand inside my hand Tell me what’s on your mind You’re trying to make the feeling last You watch things change as you get older And they slip further from your grasp But now the wind up bird is calling The dogs are barking in the night So I switch off the world around me Shut it all out of my sight All the strangers that surround me Couldn’t try to understand So come and put your arms around me Put your hand inside my hand Tell me what’s on your mind All the strangers that surround me Couldn’t try to understand So come and put your arms around me Put your hand inside my hand Tell me what’s on your mind

I wake up at 10 A.M And lay in bed until the afternoon Pull the sheets over my head Until the sun is sinking out of view I spend my time in solitude You know, my head feels like a thundercloud Growing bigger every day But I can’t find the words to say aloud Everything is changing But I just stay the same It don’t feel right without you But still the fact remains In the blinking of an eye I watched the past twelve months evaporate As the winter turned to spring Somewhere along the line I lost my way Looking out into the night I count the hours until you’re home again Watch the seconds ticking by And sit and wonder every now and then Why everything is changing But I just stay the same It don’t feel right without you But still the fact remains I get to thinking Where I went wrong Reasons to stay here Have long since gone I wake up at 10 A.M And lay in bed until the afternoon

Tried to take my mind off you Learn to paint, try something new Couldn’t hold it down Let’s turn back around Saw you smile But I was dreaming It was enough to write off The day to come And as it fades into the distance It’s never been clearer That I’m running out of time Taken by the tide Walking slow under perfect skies But you’re not by my side Moving on with no real meaning Just me and the moon Changed the record I still whistle the tune Nothing left to do But to think of you ‘Cos I’ve been searching the highs and the lows Coming up cold But I’m running out of time Taken by the tide Walking slow under perfect skies But you’re not by my side

Lonely Pines 03:49
A trio of yellow torches Illuminate the night The feeling of familiar voices Echo in the light Hiding in the leaves and ivy That hang above my door And wishing you were here beside me The way it was before Wind blows through the lonely pines But to me they look the same I recognise the face but I forgot to take the name Playing over every story Repeating in my head I watched it all unfold before me In everything you said Now I’m growing old but I feel like a child Tried to move ahead but I’ve been stuck for a while Would you help me to understand? Wind blows through the lonely pines But to me they look the same I recognise the face but I forgot to take the name Feeling bruised and broken hearted To think of love that’s long departed And I’m left wondering where to begin Wind blows through the lonely pines But to me they look the same I recognise the face but I forgot to take the name

I count my steps to pass the time away When I go out around my neighbourhood at night Focus on the path in front of me I close my eyes and try to keep my breathing right Alright Running down the road we left behind I stop a while to try and catch a breath or two As I lean against the lamppost outside my old house Burning up in a pair of torn up running shoes On the pavement tired and stumbling But somehow still my mind keeps wandering It all seems so different In the place where I come from So I go out running long distance ‘Til I can barely carry on Reconciled Heading down a moonlit mile That I’m a stranger here Once home’s no longer here It all seems so different In the place where I come from So I go out running long distance ‘Til I can barely carry on

I Was Wrong 02:42
Were you saying something? It’s hard to hear above the noise I need to tell you just one thing But I’m struggling to find my voice I’ve gathered up my thoughts But I can’t get the words out right You know me better than I know myself And it breaks my heart to see you loving someone else What will it take for you to realise I admit that I was wrong Were you saying something? It’s ringing in my ears again Thought that I heard you tell me you’re leaving I guess it’s useless to pretend That I could make you feel The way I thought you did before You know me better than I know myself And it breaks my heart to see you loving someone else What will it take for you to realise I admit that I was wrong Were you saying something? It’s hard to hear above the noise

Spent the evening hoping I would hear your voice Waiting for your call to come and break the silence This sinking feeling's getting harder to avoid How much longer do I have to keep on hiding? How do I get close to you When every time I try to speak I can’t get through Pick up the phone I’ve been waiting for so long Pick up the phone I’ve been waiting for so long How do I get close to you When every time I try to speak I can’t get through Pick up the phone I’ve been waiting for so long Pick up the phone I’ve been waiting for so long Baby, I should leave soon I’ve tried so hard to get through Baby, I should leave soon Tell me, what can I do? Pick up the phone I’ve been waiting for so long Pick up the phone I’ve been waiting for so long

Satellite 04:06
There’s a full moon rising That casts a cold light in your eyes Like a silver beacon hanging over the horizon Travelling on the path of A solitary satellite That lies above the line of sea and sky colliding Chilly in the evening Turns to frost-bite overnight And at the break of dawn, a stifled yawn while you’re still sleeping And the room is still and silent A heavy blanket holding tight As I watch the early specks of sunlight slowly creep in All the knots I tied unwinding Every puzzle piece aligning Laying in the early morning light Another waking dream recurring Where I can’t stop the time from turning And the moon is rising And the sky is powder blue Satellite keeps climbing A clear signal coming through All the knots I tied unwinding Every puzzle piece aligning Laying in the early morning light Another waking dream recurring Where I can’t stop the time from turning And the moon is rising And the sky is powder blue Satellite keeps climbing A clear signal coming through

Tongue-tied and twisted At the thought of losing you Had my chance and missed it I didn’t know what else to do Every lie I told you Came untangled over time Every bad dream that I had sold you, I gave up And confessed my crime Picking up the pieces of a love left in the dust Spent a long time trying to fix it But if you come back, baby, I’ve changed so much Tongue-tied and twisted At the thought of losing you
