Track Name: Take A Second
Suffering, suffering

Something in her eyes, something in her smile
Something in the way she looks and the way she moves round me
Something kind of dark, something kind of strange
Trouble? I don’t know. Maybe so. But it’s captivating me.

And now I’m suffering, suffering.
Going slowly insane.
I need a shot of your something
To uh..to find my mind
Suffering suffering
Cus I don’t know who you are. I don’t know, no.

Oo She got a ring. She got everything.
Everytime her curves hit a nerve and it makes me want to scream

And now I’m suffering, suffering.
Going slowly insane.
I need a shot of your something
To uh..to find my mind
Suffering suffering
Cus I don’t know who you are. I don’t know, no.

And she says ‘I’ll take my time coming over.
I’ll bide my time getting through to you.
Take a second. Let it soak in as you suffer.
Your heart looks good in black and blue’ (In black and blue)

And now I’m suffering, suffering.
Going slowly insane.
I need a shot of your something
To uh..to find my mind
Suffering suffering
Cus I don’t know who you are. I don’t know, no.
Cus I don’t know who you are. I don’t know.
Track Name: All I Want
You hit me so hard do remember my name
Think you got me hooked
I gotta new kind of drug flowing through my veins
Just can’t get enough of you

I need, I need your love
What I want Babe, Baby all I want
What I want Babe, Baby all I want
What I want Babe, Baby all I want is you

My body’s on fire with one touch of your lips my babe
Think I’m burning up
Might have lost my mind but I’m giving my heart away
I’ll stay on my knees for you

I need, I need your love
What I want Babe, Baby all I want
What I want Babe, Baby all I want
What I want Babe, Baby all I want is you
Track Name: The Horrors
These are the horrors
These are the horrors

Some will come more will go
Makes no odds to me. They don’t feel like your love
Trade my charms for your chains
Skinned both knees just try’na please and stay sane

These are the horrors that I fear that I got from you
These are the horrors that I fear that I got from you
You know it’s true the ghost of you
Has got me blue, black and blue
You know it’s true
These are the horrors

Now at night I lie alone
Wishing that my heart was made of stone
And I’ll pay your boatmans fee
If you let me, just let me be

These are the horrors that I fear that I got from you
These are the horrors that I fear that I got from you

Oh so clearly I’ve been blind
And to you I’ve lost my mind
Sold my soul and cheated time
To my demise.

These are the horrors that I fear that I got from you
These are the horrors that I fear that I got from you
You know it’s true the ghost of you
Has got me blue, black and blue
You know it’s true
These are the horrors
Track Name: Fade
I’m living proof of something you don’t need
I’m sailing through the darkest water I’ve been
I never meant for you to be so close

But don’t let me fade out like a star
Don’t let me fall between the canyon of our hearts
Don’t let me go. You know I need your love
You know I need your Love.

Strange how faces change beneath the morning light
A heart I knew so well I barely recognize
And now it’s you who’s sorry. You let go.

And now I hear you scream
But don’t let me fade out like a star
Don’t let me fall between the canyon of our hearts
Don’t let me go. You know I need your love
You know I need your Love.

And now it’s too late, too late, too late for screaming
Too late, too late, too late for dreaming things would stay the same
Too late, too late, too late for sweets songs
We’re gone.
And though I need your love..
Track Name: Silhouettes And Shadows
Well I keep turning round
But all I find is nothing but smoke and ash.
Tired of chasing shadows of your face across my past.
And although I try its hard to fly, to soar as dreamers do
When my thoughts are lost in all I left with you.

And I’m scraping these four walls to hear a sound
Outside of my own mind.
But silhouettes and shadows, they wont be enough in time.

And I don’t want to be alone tonight
No I don’t want to be alone tonight
And maybe if you held me it just might
Save me from myself, save me from myself.

I’m breathing words of fire now
Just to soothe my pain but I see your silhouette across the flames

And I’m scraping these four walls to feel alive
Outside of my own mind
But silhouettes and shadows, they aren’t enough this time

And I don’t want to be alone tonight
No I don’t want to be alone tonight
No I don’t want to be alone tonight
Track Name: Mirrors
Day by Day
I hear it calling me
Away

So Beautiful.
If I could give you it all
You know I would

But there are mirrors in each corner of my mind
Asking questions of thoughts inside
Making judgements on the things I do
They are mirrors keeping me from you

And in the night
Thats when they come alive
Behind my eyes

My fingers bleed
For some sense of relief
Till morning comes
When will you come

Cus there are mirrors in each corner of my mind
Asking questions of thoughts inside
Making judgements on the things I do
They are mirrors keeping me from you

And time is running out i'm tired of running
Just want to settle down
Find a lover and live

But there are mirrors in each corner of my mind
Asking questions of thoughts I hide
Holding grudges for mistakes I made
They are mirrors I'll carry to my grave
There are mirrors in each corner of my mind.
Track Name: Big Dreams
When there’s nothing there but silence to a body broke and bruised
When your life becomes a shadow of someone elses shoes
When you tell them you got troubles and they laugh right through their teeth
When you think that you’d be better off six-foot deep

You can take it all You can take it all
You got them big dreams Baby
I won’t let you fall, no.

When you wake up to a nightmare each time you leave your bed
Pretend the slurs don’t hurt you yet harbor what they said
When you look into the mirror see death behind your eyes
Try to live a life of truth yet leave a trail of lies

You can take it all. You can take it all
You got them big dreams Baby
I won’t let you fall, no.

And soon the day will come, like a phoenix you will soar
Harmonies bring sweet relief. They will be your cure.
So stay strong now. Don’t lose your way.
Head high and inner peace
The day will come the dawn will break on you and your big dreams.

You can take it all. You can take it all
You got them big dreams Baby
I won’t let you fall, no.

When there’s nothing there but silence
When you’re walking in the shadows.
