Track Name: These Streets, I Call Them Home
Late in the evening,
I stumble out of bed.
Two shades of a teardrop
Lay where I rest my head.

You said I've got no soul to speak of,
I said 'It takes one to know one' and smiled.
Walked away from the misery,
Felt no emptiness inside.

You asked 'Is this where it is?'
I said to you, 'It's like this'
Can't feel for the sickness,
Can't believe in no relief.

I said 'I love you', well I didn't mean it.
Though in truth, I've never felt it before.
You're just part of the carnival,
'Leave your feelings at the door'.

Well if I die before I say goodbye,
You'll know where to come and see.
But don't bring roses, bring a thorn bush,
Lord knows that's all I need.

And if I go to hell,
At least I know I'll be home.
Well its not like these streets are too far removed,
These streets, I walk alone.

Its not like these streets are too far removed,
These streets, I call them home.
Track Name: Hurts So Much
Hey Constable, how do you see me through those eyes?
It's bonafide that you've never cracked a smile in your chemical life.
Through the trees you can't see who'll be the next one down,
It's just another point of view that you're never gonna realise.

Hey pretty girl, how do you see me through those eyes?
You're gonna, see the world, learn some things, make your mark on this isle.
Well I might, know some things that may get you through the night,
So come on, feel the shame and close your eyes just one more time.

Hurts so much when you say,
'Fuck you, I'll be your star some day'
You're gonna know how it feels,
So shut up and pray for it.

I didn't hear you say,
'Sit down and wait for it'
You're gonna know what it means
To fall away from it.

Another minute you'll stay
So stick around and wait for it,
You're gonna know how it feels,
To fall away from it.
Track Name: One Day
Well I'm alone, away from you;
You're alone, away from me.
There's a hole right where you stood,
Would you get back if you could?
I know you would.
You surely should.

You said one day we might not speak again,
I said tomorrow will come, if today it all stands still.
And though one day we might not speak again,
I know tomorrow will come, if today it all stands still.

Well I'm alone away from you,
Though my heart turned off for good.
And I forget the times of old,
We wouldn't do what we were told.

And now the road again, it's hard to reach the end.

You said one day we might not speak again,
I said tomorrow will come, if today it all stands still.
And though one day we might not speak again,
I know tomorrow will come, if today it all stands still.

I don't want to see you cry,
So I know I'll never say goodbye.
So when I say goodbye,
That's when I'll turn around and see you cry.

Well tomorrow never comes if today it all stands still.
Track Name: Only To See You
Standing out in the rain, until I see your face again.
Hopeless days, I have retained,
Only to see your face again,

And you will be the end of me,
Yeah you will be the end of me.

Didn't think of the storm when I saw the mist.
Only thought we would have one road,
But now we're left with this.

And you will be my history,
Yeah you will be the enemy.

And all my days;
Surround the ways,

That I could be your killing floor.
Well I could be your once before.

You will be the end.

Often times I find myself,
Writing songs that tell about myself.
Well is this one another tune for you,
To find out more than you needed to?

You will be my last goodbye,
Yeah you will be my hidden lies
Well you will be my alibi
Yeah you will be the last.

Yeah you will be the last.
Track Name: So This Is Feeling
So this is feeling? I don't really like it,
I didn't know it was supposed to hurt.

I said I'm sorry for making things so real,
I didn't want to bring up things to come.

Oh well I'm left here, now,
These stupid feelings, how?
How have they made me now a proper man?

Cos in the morning you'll leave,
And I'll be right here, please,
You'll take the 7:30 train far from this place.

I didn't know it, well, I should've seen it then,
But I insisted it wouldn't be just so.

I told myself that 'I won't get too busy',
Well it's just another thing I shouldn't have done.

Well am I sorry now?
I wouldn't say so, how,
Can I apologise for falling in love?

Well in the morning you'll leave,
You're not where you should be
Don't wake me up before you go.

"Say it right"
I didn't hear what they said,
"We were up at night"
We were together when, you said;
"All I can do is want to leave it here,
But it aint alright"
For you to say goodbye to me.

Oh well I fell in love,
You know that that's my fault,
I'll never ask for loving in return.

Well being tortured now,
Seemed much better in script,
So let's go back where to we began.

"Say it right"
I didn't hear what they said,
"We were up at night"
We were together when, you said;
"All I can do is want to leave it here,
But it aint alright"
For you to say goodbye to me.


When all my tears hit the ground,
You will know it by the sound.
And you won't need to say goodbye,
You'll stay with me all through the night.

When you see me again,
You won't think of it as rain.
You'll never need to look behind,
Because all we'll have is all the time,
To say hello.


When all my tears hit the ground,
You will know it by the sound.
And you won't need to say goodbye,
You'll stay with me all through the night.

When you see me again,
You won't think of it as rain.
You'll never need to look behind,
Because all we'll have is all the time
To let it go.
Track Name: Seven Years
Well I don't know what I've become,
Seven years since everything went wrong.
I don't know when shadows started to fall,
It's been so long, and now I don't know at all.

Well I've been wrong, time and time before
So should I've known, when you needed more?
Well I've been there, time and time again,
So does it hurt, when you don't feel the same?

Oh, standing round again,
She said 'Oh, I don't know'
And oh, you won't need to fight,
You said 'Oh, I won't go'.

Well I've seen days where everything stood still,
Where everywhere you went had nothing to feel.
And I have wrote a song for every day,
And I have seen the looks on every face.

Oh, standing round again,
She said 'Oh, I don't know'
And oh, you won't need to fight,
You said 'Oh, I won't go'.

Well I don't know what I've become,
Seven years since everything went wrong.
Track Name: Hard Candy
She, does her hair boy,
In a way you can't ignore.
She, looks at you in ways
That you'll know that you need more.

Things, won't get much better,
If you take another hit.
Face it you'll never know how much
She needs you.

When I come home,
You'll be the first one that I call
Some times I wish
I never took from you at all
Then maybe baby,
You will be the one.

Shapes, don't get much clearer,
Since those days, you used to wait.
Wasted times and fleeting nights,
All hazy.
But you can't see now and you won't know how.

When I come home,
You'll be the first one that I call
Some times I wish
I never took from you at all
Then maybe baby,
You will be the one.
Track Name: A Better Place
Can we find another place?
Where the people haven't changed?
Though we've got no directions, I know we'll find a way.

And when efforts go to waste,
You'll see some better days,
And when tomorrow comes, I know that we may find, a better place.

When we find ourselves alone in a better place.

And if you look upon today,
You might have to look away
But where we're going now, I know one day you'll feel the same.

And if it goes away,
You'll see some better days
And when tomorrow comes, I know that we may find a better place.

And oh, do you hear the way,
They're calling out our names?
And oh, will you follow me?
Around to a better place?

And do you feel the way, I feel when I,
Can hear the sound of you calling my name?
And do you feel the way I feel when we,
Can find ourselves alone in a better place?

And do you feel the way, I feel when I
Can hear the sound of you calling my name?
Track Name: Highway #213
We're driving on a highway,
But we're going too fast.
Some would say we missed it,
Said it couldn't last
But do you know?
How did we get so far.
Cos it's a long long way,
From the neighbourhood,
That I want to be.

Oh baby, don't you know?
How much I need you now.
And oh baby, well I don't know,
How much I can go on.

Walking through the woodlands,
Where we once would laugh.
Can you see the forest?
Heading up that path.
But do you know?
That the weeds will kill you, babe.
Cos it's a long, long way, from where I want to be,
In your arms, babe, all in your arms.

Well oh baby don't you know?
How much I need you now.
And oh baby, don't you see?
How much I need you now.

Cos oh baby, don't you see?
How much I need you now.
And oh baby, don't you see?
How much I can't go on.
Cos oh baby, I don't know,
How much I need you now.
Cos oh baby, I don't know,
How much I need you now.
Track Name: If We Fall In Love Tonight
If we fall in love tonight,
I want know what to do.
Cos you're all I ever see,
When I close my eyes at night.

If we fall in love again,
I won't know what to say.
Well I'll say, to you,
This one's for your, I'll do anything for you, tonight.

If we fall in love tonight,
I'll know this dream came true.
Well I know, I'll, never ask anything more from you.

I fell in love tonight,
I fell away with you.
It won't matter what they say,
Cos darling that's all we care, it's what we make,
For us.
Track Name: Said Goodbye
Well I didn't know what to say,
When you came around.
Well I couldn't stay today,
When you came to town.

Well I failed to stay away,
When she came along.
And I didn't hear what they said,
Cos baby, I've been there before.

Oh, I didn't hear what they said just before
Said goodbye, said goodbye, when they locked away the doors.
Said goodbye, said goodbye, when they locked away the doors.
Track Name: Adeline
I knew a girl, from a distance.
She knew me too, but not in the same way.

Don't ask me to stay,
Because I won't go.
I'll never leave you behind.
Just say you'll be mine,
Adeline.

I saw the signs, from a distance.
But nobody knew what they meant, so I went down the same path.

Don't ask me to leave,
Because I'll go.
Nobody should feel like this.
There's a feeling I get,
When I think of,
Things that may come to pass.
Just say you'll be mine,
Adeline.

She's all gone away, will she stay? No she wont, but she'll never go.
She's all gone away, will she stay? No she wont, but she'll never go.

Just say you'll be mine,

Adeline.
