Track Name: Open Your Eyes
If there’s a problem it’s all in your head,
Thinking it over the things that I said,
But I never noticed watching it all turn red.
Making me feel like I’m lost at sea,
Am I a part of what you believe?
But I never noticed that you were made for me

So open your eyes love,
And look to the sky love,
So open your eyes love, and wait for me
So open your eyes love, it’s all in your head

The whistling wind, calling for me,
Sharing its life, try to make peace,
But I never noticed that you were made for me
Making me feel like I’m lost at sea,
Am I a part of the cure, make you what you believe?
But I never noticed that you were made for me
Track Name: Saviour
I tried walking; I didn’t know where to go and I’m not,
Saying I’m sorry, you know I love you so,
But I’m just tired and hungry; I’m trying to keep the beat,
But I’m just, losing myself, it’s everything I see

I’m not a saviour

I tried walking; I didn’t know where to go I know I’m,
Scared of something, scared of being alone
But I’m just tired and hungry; I’m trying to keep the beat,
But I’m just, losing myself, it’s everything I see
Track Name: Give Me Soul
It’s the price I pay,
When it’s all the same, and I’m,
Losing sense of time, wasting precious life
The world will wait,
Wait for my mistakes, it’s my,
Sense of pride again, will you ever give me soul?

Give me soul

Come on now won’t you give me
Track Name: My Son
There’s something happening around the corner,
There’s someone taking me down without warning,
And it’s stealing all my pride,
Taking all my time away

There’s someone calling out for a witness,
There’s someone trying to beat the system,
And it’s stealing all my pride,
Taking all my time away

You’re a wild one,
But you’re my son, night and day
Track Name: Leaving You Alone
Girl this is your last confession,
Lately I’ve been asking questions,
Maybe I should be leaving you alone?
I’m sick and tired of all this waiting,
Maybe I should be, anticipating?
Or maybe I should be leaving you alone?

Take me away, lead me astray,
Do what you want to do

Lately I’ve been going crazy,
Moving ‘round, within these days and,
My kid is leaving me alone
Should I wait for someone’s silence?
Could I be someone’s romancing?
Or maybe I should be leaving you alone?

Take me away, lead me astray,
Do what you want to do
Track Name: Trains And Horses
Water, water everywhere
and not a moment to sink.
Lights, lights, gone away,
and cold, too cold to think.
Dark, dark, across the room,
I heard you cry, my friend.
Come close and don't let go
till daylight comes again.
Track Name: Gone Girl
What will you do?
When you look at me that way,
And the words just drift away,
And the hours that you’re waiting fade to grey
What will you do?
When you’re hanging on the line,
You really messed it up this time,
I’m not saying that I’m sorry, but I’ll be fine

And in the daytime, I’m looking for something,
Maybe someone, to pick up the show
A star in the making, but don’t keep me waiting,
Cos we’ve been waiting here so long

What will you do?
When you look at me that way,
I know, all the games you play,
Don’t mean nothing, and I’m sorry for the things I said

When you look at me that way
Track Name: When You Run
You make me smile,
In the fields we used to run,
Taking our time in the sun,
This time, we might get it right

And all I see,
Is a picture of you on the wall,
Standing so proud and tall,
This time, we might get it right

When you run,
The way I feel when you run

And all I see,
Is a picture of you on the wall,
Standing against it all,
I know this time,
We might get it right, back where we belong
Track Name: Better Man
Well since we were together,
You said I was naïve
A better man for being better, that’s what you want me to see
And now the times are changing,
I’m scared of my two feet,
A better man for being better, is that what you want me to see?

You said without me baby,
Well baby I’m incomplete
Can I get away from you this time?

My friends they gather round me,
Can’t believe what they see,
But part of me knows I’ll never leave
I cover up my bruises,
So no-one else can see
A better man for being better, is that what you want me to see?
Track Name: Hometown
I was searching, just to find someone,
Someone to keep my safe at night, and through the day
Guess I found you, from the middle of nowhere,
Don’t let me down, you know I love you,
Don’t let me down, the powers above you

I really love my hometown,
I really love the way we keep hanging around,
I really love the way it makes me stay

I was talking, to an old friend,
He said he had so many troubles what could I say?
So I told him, remember the good times,
He said you’re a real good friend
He said I know I will depend on you
