Track Name: Back Of My Mind
Friday night and all is quiet
I look around but there’s nothing to see
I find myself in the middle of this city
My mind is restless but at least I know that I’m free

I walk the streets and my mind is racing
As misty rain falls upon my face
Thinking of a love I used to have often
But at the moment there’s no love in this place
No love in this place

I have noticed that I've found myself, deep inside myself
And I don’t know which way is out
This room is getting dark and cold
All the people that have come and gone, have been noted down
But in the end I’m all alone
Is it such a waste of time?
Deep in the back of my mind

I’ll take the path that leads to higher cover
From this flood of madness across this land
I want to find some peace and tranquility
With the sun in my eyes and my hopes cupped in both of my hand
Hopes cupped in both of my hands

I have noticed that I've found myself, deep inside myself
And I don’t know which way is out
This room is getting dark and cold
All the people that have come and gone, have been noted down
But in the end I’m all alone
Is it such a waste of time?
Deep in the back of my...
Deep in the back of my...
Deep in the back of my...
Deep in the back of my mind

Deep in the back of my...
Deep in the back of my...
Deep in the back of my...
Deep in the back of my mind
Track Name: Jigsaw
Pieces of a puzzle
Like a memory, here then gone
I felt like a jigsaw
Just thrown together, I don’t feel whole
Just thrown together, I don’t feel whole

I felt, on the double
I was in trouble, I was a clown
You saw me at my best babe
And at my worse babe, you found me out
Oh and at my worse babe, you found me out

I fall down, you pick me up
I stumble when I fall
But I know that I can’t lie alone

Pieces of a puzzle
Like a memory, here and gone
I thought I was a teacher
But I’m now a student of what I’ve become
I’m now a student of what I’ve become
I’m now a student of what I’ve become

I fall down, you pick me up
I stumble when I fall
But I know that I can’t lie alone
I fall down, you pick me up
I stumble when I fall
But I know that I can’t lie alone
Track Name: Shadows
Its only one word
That’s all that I ask of you
I don’t ask for much
But it seems that I have asked for the world

You say that it’s okay
And everything’s forgiven now
But no matter what you say
It never fits with what’s in my mind

I’m walking away, walking in circles
Looking through windows, oh
A prisoner of my own mind
I’m trapped in this lifetime, it’s never-ending
Due to my sorrow, oh
Shadows and lifetimes
Can’t you see the tears in my eyes?

My smile has disappeared
It’s been replaced by all my fears
Fears I’d thought were gone
But now have come to haunt me again

I dare to say a word
Just incase you hear me wrong
Its still the common thing
Even though we are apart

I’m walking away, walking in circles
Looking through windows, oh
A prisoner of my own mind
Can’t you see the tears in my eyes?
I’m trapped in this lifetime, it’s never-ending
Due to my sorrow, oh
Shadows and lifetimes
Can’t you see the tears in my eyes?
Track Name: Leave It All Behind
I've packed my bags it's time to go
The room is empty there's nothing to show
My mind said no but my heart said yes
I'm happy that I listened to my heart I guess

But I know, I'm gonna leave it all behind
As I say it in my prayers every night
I'm gonna leave it all behind

I turn off the lights as I look outside
And I smile to myself with a senesce of pride
I'm starting fresh from this day on
I wont know who I am before too long

But I know, I'm gonna leave it all behind
As I say it in my prayers every night
I'm gonna leave it all behind
But I know, I'm gonna leave it all behind
Coz it'll haunt me for the rest of my life
I'm gonna leave it all behind

I have told myself that times will change
And I've been living out a lie
I'm gonna look at this world in a different way
So I can finally spread my wings and fly

I've now turned a page in this book of life
What's coming to me now is what I know is right
The wheels of fate haven't stopped just yet
But where it all stops you know it all depends

But I know, I'm gonna leave it all behind
As I say it in my prayers every night
I'm gonna leave it all behind
But I know, I'm gonna leave it all behind
Coz it'll haunt me for the rest of my life
I'm gonna leave it all behind
Track Name: Just One Kiss
It only took one kiss from you to make my life complete
Before you I was missing in my life
Let me count the ways that you inspire me every day
Just by being who you are all the time

You’re all I ever wanted
It only took one kiss and that was all
You’re all I ever wanted
It only took one kiss and that was all

It only took one kiss from you to live my life again
I now feel warm where once I felt so cold
Ever since I met you I am learning how to feel
No longer am I barren in my soul

You’re all I ever wanted
It only took one kiss and that was all
You’re all I ever wanted
It only took one kiss and that was all

It only took one kiss from you for me to realise
That you’re the only one who rocks my world
I can’t imagine live without you each and every day
I want to feel this way for now and evermore

You’re all I ever wanted
It only took one kiss and that was all
You’re all I ever wanted
It only took one kiss and that was all
You’re all I ever wanted
It only took one kiss and that was all
You’re all I ever wanted
It only took one kiss and that was all

And that was all
Track Name: Seeing Stars
Hold the phones and stop the press
This will be better than the rest
Coz my head is spinning
And I am seeing stars

You gave me life from a single breath
No truer words have now been said
Coz my head is spinning
And I am seeing stars

I feel so dizzy, I need to rest
With this feeling I got in my chest
Oh, I see the world now
Through the eyes of love
My head is spinning
And I am seeing stars

I’ll build a world in which you can live
And give you all the space to move within
But I'm hardly breathing
As my eyes well up with tears

I want to hold you in my arms
And drown in your presence, your light and your love
Coz my head is spinning
And I am seeing stars

I feel so dizzy, I need to rest
With this feeling I got in my chest
Oh, I see the world now
Through the eyes of love
My head is spinning
And I am seeing stars

My head is spinning
And I am seeing stars
My head is spinning
And I am seeing stars
Track Name: Don't Turn To Me Now
Looking at yourself in the mirror
Is what you see lies?
Thinking ‘bout yourself even clearer
Is something you despise?

Don’t turn to me now
Coz the times too late to change your mind
Don’t turn to me now
Coz that’s what you get when you don’t ask
Anybodies help along the way

Why’s there so much loneliness
When there’s so many people there?
Are we all afraid of each other?
Coz there’s no reason to be scared

Don’t turn to me now
Coz the times too late to change your mind
Don’t turn to me now
Coz that’s what you get when you don’t ask
Anybodies help along the way

Don’t you think it could’ve been better?
With the choices that you made
Coz all your life you were searching for pleasure
But all you got was pain

Don’t turn to me now
Coz the times too late to change your mind
Don’t turn to me now
Coz that’s what you get when you don’t ask
Anybodies help along the way

Help along the way
Help along the way
Track Name: Girl Like You
I love you babe oh can't you see
The way you're walking down the street
Will bring a dead man to his feet
Oh, I'm in ecstasy

Oh, I've never met a girl like you
Oh, I've never met a girl like you
Oh, I've never met a girl like you
Oh, I've never met a girl like you

I love you babe oh don't you know
You're the one who steals the show
I got you now wont let you go
Oh, I'm in ecstasy

Oh, I've never met a girl like you
Oh, I've never met a girl like you
Oh, I've never met a girl like you
Oh, I've never met a girl like you

You're the one Ive been looking for
With every day I love you more
My life began when you walked through my door
Oh, I'm in ecstasy

Oh, I've never met a girl like you
Oh, I've never met a girl like you
Oh, I've never met a girl like you
Oh, I've never met a girl like you
Track Name: Missing You Already
It’s 9am you wave goodbye
And then I see you drive away
One last kiss a warm embrace
Means more than all the words we say

I’m missing you already
I don’t believe I said goodbye
Missing you already
There’s no need for asking why

A window seat I try to push
Away my feelings as I look outside
Why I’m here is a consequence
The movie plays on in my mind

I’m missing you already
I don’t believe I said goodbye
Missing you already
There’s no need for asking why

I wish I could sleep but all I do
Is listen to the sad songs on the radio
Wish I could dream of the way things used to be
But now I’ll never know

If I travelled far away
Everything would work out fine
But all I’ve done is separated
A part of me that’s needed to survive

I’m missing you already
I don’t believe I said goodbye
Missing you already
There’s no need for asking why
I’m missing you already
Cheap regrets is all I'll find
I’m missing you already
Tonight
Track Name: Nothing Stands In Your Way
Why are you so angry?
And full of rage inside
In a world of confusion
You’re struggling with something in your mind

Why are you hiding?
Behind a mask of lies
You can move any mountain
But honestly you’ve got to want to try

You want to see it, to feel it
You want to be near it
But nothing stands in your way
You want to see it, to feel it
You want to be near it
But nothing stands in your way
Nothing stands in your way

Why are you frightened?
There is no us and them
As long as you fear
Your situation still remains the same

You say you are lonely
And you can’t break out of your shell
In your push to be heard
You’re abandoning the ones who know you well

You want to see it, to feel it
You want to be near it
But nothing stands in your way
You want to see it, to feel it
You want to be near it
But nothing stands in your way

You want to see it, to feel it
You want to be near it
But nothing stands in your way
You want to see it, to feel it
You want to be near it
But nothing stands in your way
Nothing stands in your way
Nothing stands in your way
Nothing stands in your way
Track Name: Half Hearted Man
I thought there was a time that we would last forever
But I, got into the way
No matter what you say I would take it all for granted
Coz I, thought you’d always be there

Coz I’m a half hearted man
Half hearted man
Half hearted man
Ooh…

You forgave me more than once or twice too often
But I, couldn’t understand your pain
And all the things I said and done that really hurt you
If I could turn back time, I’d be changing my ways

Coz I’m a half hearted man
Half hearted man
Half hearted man
Ooh…

You forgave me more than once or twice too often
But I, couldn’t understand your pain
And all the things I said and done that really hurt you
If I could turn back time, I’d be changing my ways

Coz I’m a half hearted man
Half hearted man
Half hearted man
Ooh…
Ooh…
Track Name: We Can't Be Together
You wanna bed to rest your weary head
We both endured another battle
I cannot wait until this break of day
To resolve this painful matter

It’s hard to be or not to be afraid
For all the reasons that you’ve given
But all these lies are coming back again
Even though we live in heaven

It’s really obvious what happened today
So let’s cut our losses and go our separate ways

I said no way
We can’t be together anymore
I said no way
We can’t be together anymore

Stop telling me everything’s okay
I know damn well that you are lying
Oh come on babe do you take for a fool
Well at least you keep on trying

It’s really obvious what happened today
So let’s cut our losses and go our separate ways
If we can still be friends well that’s alright by me
You know it’s for the best, baby cant you see

I said no way
We can’t be together anymore
I said no way
We can’t be together anymore
I said no way
We can’t be together anymore
I said no way
We can’t be together anymore
