Track Name: Bring me Home
Last night I couldn't sleep
Now I can't open my eyes
And no wander, what a little child that rests behind this open face
Shutting all the past behind me, shutting out the hidden lies
Welcome to my perfect world, where daydreams come alive
But now I need you to bring me home.

I'm running out of time.
I see you every day now in my minds eye
And I wander if I'm still the same to you as I was before.
What & who am I to you now, what was I before?
& I can not sleep at night, I'm still afraid of the dark
Scared of the isolation that lets my mind wake up
Lost in all the things I never thought would get me here.

All through the night I am haunted by nightmares
Dark shaped and shadows that come while my minds at rest
& I'm trying to sleep but it's getting too hard to breath
& my minds trying to speak, who is this?

& I'm running back
but now shadows start to fade, lost in the midst.
& I turn away again, another one for shame,
Lost in all the things I never thought would catch me here.

All through the night it is you in my nightmares
Deamons & angles, they come while my minds at rest
& I'm trying to sleep but it's getting too hard to breath
& my minds trying to speak but I can't quite form the words
There's something stopping me from telling you to bring me home.

For every year that's on our hearts another 100 miles apart
Daydreams stop believing, start deceiving, start to change my past.
The truth remains the same forever, but I know it could get better
For all the times we touched the sky, for all the times you touched my heart
Remember when I said I love you, I realise now I'll always need you
But that doesn't change the truth, I will see this through
So bring me home, bring me home. Bring me home, bring me home.
Track Name: Yours
Once more I tell you something, we've come a long way since we first met.
Hold me and try to love me one more time before we forget.
Don't give in, don't give in.
Only thing I've ever known has gone so far away, take care along the road
I know you'll be alright & I know that you'll come home, I know this cos I'm yours.
I know you don't work here anymore.

Hold me and try to love me one more time before you're gone.
Trusting a sense of nothing will turn something but not for long.
Don't give in, don't give in.
Only thing I've ever known has gone so far away, take care along the road
I know you'll be alright & I know that you'll come home, I know this cos I'm yours.
I know you don't work here anymore.

Hold your head up and look me in the eyes and tell me you don't love me anymore
Hold your head up and look me in the eyes and tell me you don't love me cos I'm yours!
I know you don't work here anymore.
Track Name: I'm Gone
Once more I ask you to listen to me
I know you don't want to; I promise I'll leave
Just let me tell you how sorry I am
I understand pain and I know I'm the cause of yours.

I met you, I loved you and you loved me too
We fell in this trap for I loved you too soon.
Back then I knew not what I would become
I was just certain that you were the one.

& then I fell into pits of despair
I dragged you down with me, it was too much to bear.
I'm grateful for all the support that you gave
I'm sorry I kept screaming out for your name & I'm gone.
Feel yourself free now I'm gone.
Turning away & I'm gone
To let you get on with your live.

I had become so dependant of you
That I didn't know where else I could turn
I understand that I've put you through pain.
It's my fault, I know, I'm sorry.

Plaguing your mind with these wretches desires
They're eating away at your trust and your help
Infecting a love that might never have worked.
I don't ask for chances, don't worry I heard & I'm gone.
Feel yourself free now I'm gone.
Turning away & I'm gone
To let you get on with your live.

I have to leave you for good or for bad,
I know that you hate me but I'll never hate you back
I don't ask for chances but promise me this
You'll never forget those good moments we had & I'm gone.
I'm gone, now I'm gone please try to enjoy your life.
Track Name: Lost Kingdom
Something is missing, someone has gone
Would they notice if something was wrong?
I want you to see, I want you to see me.

Run through the forest, what is my name?
I did not understand. Call to me.
What might have been different, what would be the same?
Would I destroy? Hold me, and keep me warm
As we float away into the storm.

& I would break my bones for angels
Photographs of sacred strangers
Burnt to ashes, hope and failures
All forever be my savour.
Doctors stare at my affliction
Next to them I've lost my kingdom.
Haunt my dreams & haunt my fiction
Doctors stare but now my kingdoms lost!

Divine intervention comes floating down
Pushing through grace and forced to the ground.
I want to say sorry for the things that I've done.
As my head starts to implode & all around is gone.

& I would break my bones for angels
Photographs of sacred strangers
Burnt to ashes, hope and failures
All forever be my savour.
Doctors stare at my affliction
Next to them I've lost my kingdom.
Haunt my dreams & haunt my fiction
Doctors stare but now my kingdoms lost!
