Start Again

Steal what you need, and leave the rest for me
You never took the time, to look at what you’ve got
And all the times you fell, I was there to pick you up
You’re never far away, from what you want to be

I’ve found it’s harder to reach the end
Now I’m trying to start again
Can’t you see that it’s incomplete?
Now I’m taking the things that you need

I’ve found it’s harder to reach the end
Now I’m trying to start again
Is it something I said before?
Can’t you tell us apart anymore?

So steal what you need, and leave the rest for me
You never took the time, to look at what you’ve got
And all the times you fell, I was there to pick you up
You’re never far away, from what you want to be

I’ve found it’s harder to reach the end
Now I’m trying to start again
Can’t you see that it’s incomplete?
Now I’m taking the things that you need

I’ve found it’s harder to reach the end
Now I’m trying to start again
Is it something I said before?
Can’t you tell us apart anymore?

Empty At The End

Stars at my window
All say they don’t know
Well it’s true
In letters of blue

You say you don’t know
All there is to know
Well it’s true
In letters of blue

And all I know is no one is my friend
And it’s empty at the end
So you start again

Stars at my window
All say they don’t know
Well it’s true
In letters of blue

You say you don’t know
All there is to know
Well it’s true yes it’s true
In letters of blue

And all I know is no one is my friend
And it’s empty at the end
So we start again

And all I know is no one is my friend
And it’s empty at the end
So we start again

There’s A Silence

I sit on the edge
I’m scared to look down
I look away for a second
And I see we shut ourselves in

And are you aware
There’s a rift between us
I can’t think what it means
I only ask myself why is it there

And there’s a silence
When you walk into the room
And I don’t feel I’m in control

I sit on the edge
I’m scared to look down
I look away for a second
And I see we shut ourselves in

And are you aware
Of this rift between us
Yeah I can’t think what it means
I only ask myself why is it there

And there’s a silence
When you walk into the room
And I don’t feel I’m in control

And there’s a silence
When you walk into the room
And I don’t feel I’m in control

Something’s Got To Give

I plan to do it every day, but I couldn’t care
It’s not as if I worry I’m never there
And what do you want in this
Something’s got to give
The lines are there
It’s all for you take, you give

Sometimes you put your back up
‘Cos it’s the only way to see
That you’re going nowhere today

I plan to do it every day, but I couldn’t care
It’s not as if I worry I’m never there
You know just as well as I
I am going down
Wednesday is far too early

Sometimes you put your back up
‘Cos it’s the only way to see
That you’re going nowhere today

‘Cos sometimes you put your back up
‘Cos it’s the only way to see
That you’re going nowhere today

Wednesday is far too early

It’s Wasting Me Away

There’s a space where you were
There’s a love that’s not there
And I tried to see it your way
But I couldn’t see at all

There’s a line across the window
Like the lines across your face

There’s a space where you were
And you’re back again
There’s a love that’s not there
I tried so hard to see it your way
But I couldn’t see at all

There’s a line across the window
Like the lines across your face

There’s a line across the window
Like the lines across your face
There’s a never ending sorrow
And it’s wasting me away

Silent To The Dark

Small talk on the radio
It seems I am going nowhere today

Small talk gets you nowhere
Choose between a curtain or a star
And I’m silent to the dark

‘Cos when I needed someone to talk to
You were the only one around
Small cost, it pays to be alone

Small talk on the radio
It seems I am going nowhere today
Not today
Small talk gets you nowhere
I’m silent to the dark and tepid
Only when you ask

‘Cos when I needed someone to talk to
You were the only one around
Small cost, it pays to be alone

And when I needed someone to talk to
You were the only one around
Small cost, it pays to be alone

And you can do anything you want
Yeah you can anything you want
You can do anything you want
It doesn’t matter
It doesn’t matter

‘Cos when I needed someone to talk to
You were the only one around
Small cost, it pays to be alone

And when I needed someone to talk to
You were the only one around
Small cost, it pays to be alone

And when I needed someone
To talk to…

‘Cos when I needed someone to talk to
You were the only one around
Small cost, it pays to be alone

Sleep Alone

This is what I say when I can’t say to you
This is what I do when I can’t say to you
Out of time
Out of touch

And on through the dark nights we sleep alone
As if all we know is true

This is what I say when I can’t say to you
This is what I do when I can’t say to you
Out of time
Out of touch

And on through the dark nights we sleep alone
As if all we know is true

What it takes to feel
To be alone

This Given Line

I know there’s a space for this
There’s a niche for this given line
I know we will make it up
They will break it up given time
I know there’s no use in this
So throw it all back in

And I know it’s getting harder for you to choose
Who will lie, you can prove
And I know it’s getting harder to feel secure
Who will lie, you can prove

I know there’s a space for this
There’s a niche for this given line
I know we will make it up
They will break up given time
I know there’s no use in this
So throw it all back in

And I know it’s getting harder for you to choose
Who will lie, you can prove
And I know it’s getting harder to feel secure
Who will lie, you can prove

I know there’s no use
And I know it’s getting harder to feel secure
Who will lie, you can prove
And I know it’s getting harder for you to choose
Who can lie, you will prove

Why Do You Try So Hard To Hate Me

Sometimes I wake up in the sun
Every day it burns me like no one
Could ever be like me
Everyone has faltered now we’re gone

You’re so bitter, I don’t get it
Why do you try so hard to hate me?
You’re so bitter, I don’t get it
Why you try so hard?

Sometimes I wake up in the sun
Every day it burns me like no one
Could ever be like me
Everyone has faltered now we’re gone

You’re so bitter, I don’t get it
Why do you try so hard to hate me?
You’re so bitter, I don’t get it
Why do you try so hard to hate me?
You’re so bitter, I don’t get it
Why do you try so hard to hate me?
You’re so bitter, I don’t get it
Why do you try so hard?

So take your songs tonight
I don’t feel the hurt inside
I am bruised and I am broken
And I don’t feel the hurt inside
I am taking my exit now
I am making my exit now
And I’m not sure where I’ll be

You’re so bitter, I don’t get it
Why do you try so hard to hate me?
You’re so bitter, I don’t get it
Why do you try so hard to hate me?
You’re so bitter, I don’t get it
Why do you try so hard to hate me?
You’re so bitter, I don’t get it
Why do you try so hard?

Holes In The Wall

There’s not enough time
There’s no room in this town
To try and move
You’ve dried me up for now

Don’t kill what’s left off
You’ll never know it’s there
I try to argue
But now your skin is bare

And I could try to make you mine
But I haven’t got the time
To waste it all on someone like you

Don’t kill what’s left off
You’d never know it’s there
And I try to argue
But now your skin is bare

And I could try to make you mine
But I haven’t got the time
To waste it all on someone like you

Biting The Soles Of My Feet

You don’t get out much
You’re hardly locked inside
And nothing ever gets you down

You don’t get up to much
And nothing comes of it
And nothing ever gets you down

And as the day came rushing in
I realised what could have been
And everything I ever saw
Came quickly as had not before

Do you and I see it the same way
I think about it every day

You don’t get out much
You’re hardly locked inside
And nothing ever gets you down

You don’t get up to much
And nothing comes of it
And nothing ever gets you down

And as the day came rushing in
I realised what could have been
And everything I ever saw
Came quickly as had not before

Do you and I see it the same way
I think about it every day

And life goes on

And as the day came rushing in
I realised what could have been
And everything I ever saw
Came quickly as had not before

Do you and I see it the same way
I think about it every day
Do you and I see it the same way
I think about it every day

Do you and I see it the same way

Red Balloon For Me

Today was the day
They went away
The voices in my head disappeared

And I (I see you’ve taken all the blame)
I could cry (it’s really not that hard)
I could die (it’s really not that hard)
But I’d rather never see you
And I (I see you’ve taken all the blame)
I could cry (it’s really not that hard)
I could die (it’s really not that hard)
But I’d rather never see you again

The time I awake
Spelled out all of my mistakes (my mistakes)
The voices in my ears, they are fake

And I (I see you’ve taken all the blame)
I could cry (it’s really not that hard)
I could die (it’s really not that hard)
But I’d rather never see you
And I (I see you’ve taken all the blame)
I could cry (it’s really not that hard)
I could die (it’s really not that hard)
But I’d rather never see you again
