Track Name: Awake
Awake

I don't want to do this anymore, oh,
It's taken all that I have got and more,
It has pushed my face into the floor, oh,
And I just don't know quite what it's all for

Empty eyes,
A sign of the times,
Silent mind,
No bell that chimes,
Happy memories,
Too hard to find,
Their demands have buried me alive

*(Chorus repeated but inaudible)

I don't want to do this anymore, oh,
It's taken all that I have got and more,
It has pushed my face into the floor, oh,
And I just don't know quite what it's all for

Saying goodbye,
To this way of life,
Shouting farewell,
To all of this strife,
Pushing aside,
All the things I don't like,
Forgetting all that keeps me awake at night
Track Name: Those Days, Those Nights
Those Days, Those Nights

Thinking back to our younger days,
We were alive in so many ways,
There's no tomorrow, there's just today,
We'll drink all night and in the morning we will pay

All there was, was you and I,
My liquid hands and your glittering eyes,
Took a bird, taught it to fly,
Held my hand and you gave me the sky

Those days are more than just days,
They're a crystal in my mind,
Those nights are more than nights,
They're the reason that I fight
Track Name: Happy Birthday
Happy Birthday

Happy Birthday to you,
You might be gone,
But I still think of you,
There is nothing I can do,
But say without you I don't have a clue

Who I am,
What I'll be,
Without you standing next to me,
Where to turn,
Where to run,
When there's no one

One day in this life of mine,
A life to spend wishing I was with you,
I'd make time stand still,
Keep the dance in your step,
And the light in your eyes
Track Name: Forgotten
Forgotten

I used to believe that you cared about me,
That you would give to me anything I set my heart upon,
That you wanted to see me have something to call my own

Bitter jealousy is a cruel mistress you know,
It tears up memories and it will take control,
And it leaves you forgotten
Track Name: Lighthouse
Lighthouse

I see you far away,
I hear about you most days,
And I've been wishing that you were with me
I think about you all the time,
I hold you above the others,
And I just want you, thats all
I don't know you really,
But I'm sure that we would make each other happy

I know you're not thinking of me,
You don't even turn and look at me

We'll never make it to the lighthouse,
I'll never have what I want most,
You'll never even know how I feel,
To you I'm just a ghost
Track Name: Forbidden Fruit
Forbidden Fruit

He's walking in silence,
His thoughts are his friend,
All he dreams is all he wants,
But they will be his end

Forbidden fruit,
Forbidden fruit

He wants to be reckless,
Throw caution to the wind,
But his flame will soon die out,
Once he lets the tempest in

Forbidden fruit,
Forbidden fruit,
Thinking all the things he shouldn't do
Track Name: Sheltered
Sheltered

I cannot talk,
I cannot speak,
Because it makes me feel like you can see into my mind,
And my mind is mine,
And I just want to turn away,
Because there's nothing more for me to say,
You're not a shelter from the storm

I am your flotsam and jetsam,
Drifting in the sea,
I can't look into your eyes,
You've pushed me to my knees,
You're all I've ever known,
Just one look from you turns me to stone

I cannot talk,
I cannot speak,
Because it makes me feel like you can see into my mind,
And my mind is mine,
And I just want to turn away,
Because there's nothing more for me to say,
You're not a shelter from the storm
Track Name: Summer Love
Summer Love

All everyone want this summer is sun,
All everyone wants this summer is fun,
What they really want is love,
But they're not gonna get it,
Not if they're lucky

It ends like an English summer,
Too close to when it began,
When autumn comes it fades away,
With nothing left but grains of sand in your shoes

All everyone wanted in summer is gone,
All everyone wanted in summer's undone,
They let go of their cliched kind of love,
But they'll still dream about it,
They'll try and find it,
When summer's back again
When summer's back again
Track Name: Wishing Well
Wishing Well

Running through the fields in my mind,
You were always two steps behind,
I wanted to get you by my side,
But you were tired of trying,
So I watched you as you turned away,
But I just couldn't catch you

Sometimes the things that you love,
Don't ever leave you,
And there are some things,
That a wishing well can't grant

Keeping the time that we had close to my heart,
Holding the memories as we drifted apart,
I needed to know that you were by my side,
You should have kept trying
So I watched you as you turned away,
But I just couldn't catch you

Sometimes the things that you love,
Are best that they leave you,
And there are some things,
That a wishing well can't grant
Track Name: Nineteen
Nineteen

My life is something you couldn't write,
The ink would dry up, you'd give up, you'd run out of time,
The twists in the plot would drive you mad

No one knows that more than you,
With all the things they put you through

And then you said to me
that nineteen is nothing,
And I should act my age,
'Cause when I am as old as you
I won't want to turn the page

No one knows that more than you,
With all the things they put you through

I am young,
But my book would have so many words,
Too many for me to count,
Too many that I have heard
Track Name: Porphyria's Lover
Porphyria's Lover

This is not your choice,
They forced you to leave,
Silenced your voice,
If you can catch a moment,
Hold it in your hand,
Just like Porphyria's Lover,
You'll keep it if you can.

When all you want is what you have,
Tie her hair around her neck,
When all you need is freedom,
Wait for God's reply instead.
Track Name: Lost For Days
Lost for Days

We are in the dog days now,
Blood runs hot, hope wears thin,
We need to feel the breeze come,
To let the dreams back in,
So I will hold my breath now,
And I will count to ten,
I just have to know now,
That I will be something

I'm touching your hand,
Pulling you to the deeps,
Hoping that you will help me,
As you cry yourself to sleep,
I'm running by torchlight,
Praying you'll lead the way,
But I should have learnt now,
That you've been lost for days

We are in the dog days now,
Blood runs hot, hope wears thin,
We need to feel the breeze come,
To let the dreams back in,
So I will hold my breath now,
And I will count to ten,
I just have to know now,
That I will be something
