LYRICS
The City
Take a breath of fresh air,
Rare, take a toke.
of the city smoke.          
Don’t choke on a fine wine

Weaving through the crowd
chattin loud, father tells his son, well done,
Stand up and be proud.

As the kid grows up he tries succeeds
fights the war, as the nation bleeds.
I can’t describe the drive
and the phenomenal rise
he removed the blanket from the people’s eyes.

Welcome to the city
Make yourself at home boy
All the girls are pretty and
Smiling in the sunshine

Cardboard cut out street side down and out
no money in the world and
nothing else to think about.
Nobody wants to know.
Luxury and design.
No money more crime
people looking up, to the skies
praying for their families
waiting for a hero
waiting for the truth
fed up with the la la la la lies.

Welcome to the city
Make yourself at home boy
All the girls are pretty and
Smiling in the sunshine

Welcome, to the city

Hearts & Arrows
Dig my earth; take my trust
through an atmosphere of dust
Unaware, deep inside
you’re not mine
Lighting strikes – through the core.
You don’t love me anymore
I’m shocked, shot down by the pain.

No Sleep through the night,
tears are drownin out the light,
body knows that its tired its love under attack,
out of sink, out of wack, crack, hoping for a way back

At the start of the night,
part of me, could make it right
Do you want me to go
hearts & arrows.
From the look in your eye,
It’s time to say goodbye
now I know I must go
hearts & arrows.

Love, war, no more
I’m simply in repair.
I don’t know how this works
For better or for worse.
But I know that its hearts and arrows.

No Sleep through the night,
tears are drownin out the light,
body knows that its tired its love under attack,
out of sink, out of wack, crack,
hoping for a way back

At the start of the night,
part of me, could make it right
Do you want me to go
hearts & arrows.
From the look in your eye,
It’s time to say goodbye
now I know I must go
hearts & arrows.

Repeat

I Want More
Help me find a level state of mind
Take me to that place
help me to unwind.
Colour in the shadows I create
Take my troubled thoughts
and try to set them straight.

Should I know…
how to fix myself?
I’ve felt this way before

I want more

Delve into the chambers of my mind
Fill them all love
and leave it all behind.
Wasted honour, loyalty and pride.
An atmosphere so cold
a space in which I hide.

Should I know…
how to fix myself?
I’ve felt this way before

So Good
Sometimes I can feel it coming over me
Showing my true colours, there for everyone to see.
Take me to a place where I can, get some relief.
I’m dancing with the devil but I’m keeping it brief.

Cause I, I’m up then I am down (think of the good times)
I,  I’m lost till I am found (and remember)

That when its so good
I cant describe it but I wish I could
when I’m on top of the world
when I’m on top of the world.

Maybe I will sit down and I’ll contemplate
Just how good I have it if I concentrate
On the - good times, the wicked vibe
I need a hit of your girl so I can feel alive

Cause I, I’m up then I am down
(think of the good times)
I,  I’m lost till I am found
(and remember)

That when its so good
I cant describe it but I wish I could
when I’m on top of the world
when I’m on top of the world.

And when I think of all the little things that bother me, damn.
I remind myself just how lucky I am
It keeps me in my place with a smile on my face.
Gone are the feelings of sadness with happy ones to replace.

Moonlight Rain
The cold consumes that empty space
As diamonds fall from the sky
I could tell that it was over and I wondered why

The timing wasn’t perfect
The cracks were on the surface
The tremors from within
Depressing violin

The beating of my heart
It’s worse now we’re apart
My soul got to much bass
And I’m waiting
In the same place

Standing here in the moonlight rain
I won’t leave ‘till you explain, till you explain

I sat beneath the chestnut tree
My clothes were soaked right through
You told me it was over
What did I do?
Maybe I was stupid
Blinded by the pain
Just tell me what I need to know please explain.

The beating of my heart
It’s worse now we’re apart
My soul got to much bass
And I’m waiting
In the same place

Standing here in the moonlight rain
I won’t leave ‘till you explain, till you explain

Cause’ the beating of my heart
It’s worse now we’re apart
My soul got to much bass
And I’m waiting
In the same place

Standing here in the moonlight rain
I won’t leave ‘till you explain, till you explain

With You
Too many highs and lows,
Inside the feeling grows
I could fly around your fire not so long ago
I couldn’t concentrate
But now I’m thinking straight
Your love can feed my soul
Your love can feed my soul

Tonigh ah uh ah ah ite
Give me the green light
Just one chance and I’ll make it alright.
Lets take it slow? Now that I know.

Whatever I say,
However I feel,
When I’m with you,
I know that it’s real.

Outside it starts to rain
Breath on the window pane
I stare into the distance hoping you might feel the same
I could make you smile
Lets make it all worthwhile
Let my love  feed ya soul
Let my love  feed ya soul

Tonigh ah uh ah ah ite
Give me the green light
Just one chance and I’ll make it alright.
Lets take it slow? Now that I know.

Whatever I say,
However I feel,
When I’m with you,
I know that it’s real.

Love Struck
The twinkle in your eyes says you’ve got it all
You’re so god damn beautiful
I love it when you smile
And I hope it stays for a while
You’re the truth in the story I’m so desperate to tell
My first thought is to wish you well
With everything you do
And I can’t believe that I’m with you

These words aint easy to say
When you take my breath away
I love it when you smile
You’re mine, I want you all the time
I’ll be your knight if you be my sunshine
I’ll be your knight if you be my sunshine
I’ll be your knight if you be my sunshine

Love struck
Cant get enough
Feel the love
Feel the Love
Love struck,
cant get enough
Feel the love
Feel the Love

You’re the reason when we touch that my heart beats fast
I feel the heat and the energy pass
I love it when we touch
The sweetest sensation never gets too much
There’s an aura around your body, and there’s beauty within
A pale surface of porcelain
I heart of gold inside,
And I’ve never felt so alive.

These words aint easy to say
When you take my breath away
I love it when you smile
You’re mine, I want you all the time
I’ll be your knight if you be my sunshine
I’ll be your knight if you be my sunshine
I’ll be your knight if you be my sunshine

Love struck
Cant get enough
Feel the love. Feel the Love
Feel the love. Feel the love
Feel the love. Feel the love.
Feel the love. Feel the love
Feel the love.

I’m Love struck
I’m Love struck
Can’t get enough
Feel the love. Feel the Love

Cobwebs & Roses
Cobwebs and roses.
Covered in rain.
I’m on the outside
Lonely again.

I have to wonder, where it all went wrong
I cant ignore you

My virtue and sin,
I wish that I could understand but I just cant begin to explain
Where it all went wrong.

Explain, where it all went wrong.

I am standing in your shadow
I am calling out your name
If only you would me in.
We could fall in love again.

Diamonds and flashlights
Cut through the sky
It’s raining in your atmosphere
But its misty in mine.

Wish you could be here, be here

I am standing in your shadow
I am calling out your name
If only you would me in.
We could fall in love again.
