Track Name: Prologue
Prologue

I had a dream once
A dream of hope of love of happiness
Every time I closed my eyes I saw her
Every time I allowed my thoughts to wander I thought of her
There was a time when I could pick up my six string and play
Play for hours the notes the melodies they would just come as if from the heavens

There was once a hero of mine
A man who passed away many years before I was born but
His music
It moved and inspired me beyond anything in the world and it has often been said
If you listen to the wind you could still hear him play

But the wind died down
The lights went out
And she was gone but my love for her was not
The last flame of the candle flickered and died no matter how much I tried to hold it
When I close my eyes I can still see her but her it is not
It is another speaking words through her
When I allow my thoughts to wander once more I think of her
But now all I feel is pain
Because there is no love left in her for me
The flame has long since burned for the last time
There is no longer...a candle in the night
Track Name: The Prisoner
The Prisoner

A locked door to your light
Extinguished by a young life
The one you’re supposed to love
Taken by some young blood
To cry and to die, Escape life on the inside
A twisted compromise
In evil public eyes

Who gave you the power to seal someone’s fate
Who made you judge of human life
You send a man down for what he has done
Putting his fate to the knife
Summon a jury who don’t understand
Cut a deal for a guilty plea
So it follows him round for the rest of his days
Cos no one was willing to see

Eternity in hell
Is life inside this cell
Time will linger on
After life has gone

On the inside each day’s like a week
Each month another year
Telling the day by the hand of a watch
Trying to hold back the tears
A letter written by your shaking hand
To be read by candle light
The evil and horror of what you have done
Brings tears to her eyes in the night

Eternity in hell
Is life inside this cell
Time will linger on
After life has gone

Out on the outside you think to yourself
The sentence is over and done
But your mind is still twisted your conscience still sick
This hell has only begun
Each nightmare you have every way that you turn
You see the past written in stone
How will it be when you tell the world
Are you free or dying alone

Eternity in hell
Is life inside this cell
Time will linger on
After life has gone
Track Name: Heart's Doin' Time
Heart’s Doin’ Time

You're a wicked bitch they way you pull her strings
I confided in you every single thing
Told of my addiction your secret smile
Do time for my affliction said it ain't your style

I really thought I knew ya but you got it comin to ya tonight
Mother to a lover but I really sit and wonder alright
Workin under cover you've shown your true colours to me
My hearts been doin time
you warped her mind .

You told me sometimes you gotta let things be
Even when the world's coming down on me
A judge to a jury that'll hang me high
A noose around my neck before they tell me why

I really thought I knew ya but you got it comin to ya tonight
Mother to a lover but I really sit and wonder alright
Workin under cover you've shown your true colours to me
My hearts been doin time
you warped her mind .

I don't understand your reason why
I don't understand why you try
To get that jury to hang me high
But I was blinded by your lies


I really thought I knew ya but you got it comin to ya tonight
Mother to a lover but I really sit and wonder alright
Workin under cover you've shown your true colours to me
My hearts been doin time
you warped her mind .
Track Name: Synaesthesia
Synaesthesia

There may be thoughts inside your head a Monday morning burning red
Look to the sky the colour blue could be the colour that gets to you
The thoughts that swirl in your mind reality well you just might find
A confusion you can’t tie down look at a square and you see it’s round

Take me to heaven, and paint me a sign
Show me a hell, where I wish I was blind
Draw me a vision, that portrays what I see
Make me a fighter, who never bleeds

Tuesday morning wakes up green read the leaves of the hell you’ve seen
Lover’s smile a web of lies human nature is your fool’s disguise
You see before you something new ain’t what your head promised you
Seeing shallow but you’re in too deep in your dreams and in your sleep

Take me to heaven, and paint me a sign
Show me a hell, where I wish I was blind
Draw me a vision, that portrays what I see
Make me a fighter, who never bleeds

See what you say before you talk try to run before you walk
Silent cries but not in vain and there’s a cut but there is no pain
Foreign worlds you’re running through where true is false and false is true
To run a mile but take your time, a twist a turn is a straight line

Take me to heaven, and paint me a sign
Show me a hell, where I wish I was blind
Draw me a vision, that portrays what I see
Make me a fighter, who never bleeds
Track Name: It'll Be Alright
It’ll Be Alright

I like the way when the sun goes down
The moon lights up your dark skin
The way you’d look into my eyes and you’d smile
We’d take a walk on a winters day
Just to clear our tired minds
You’d tell me it would be all right now and I’d smile


How will I go on when you’re gone
How can I get up and carry on
How can I forget its been so long


You never laughed at me when I was crying
Never turned your back when I’d thrown it all away
I’d hold out a shaking hand to dry your eyes
And whisper softly to you it’ll be alright


We made a lasting memory
That I won’t soon forget
Late evenings of rock n roll music and wine
I still have the photograph
The picture’s on my wall
Now the past is the past I’ve drawn the line


How will I go on when you’re gone
How can I get up and carry on
How can I forget its been so long


You never laughed at me when I was crying
Never turned your back when I’d thrown it all away
I’d hold out a shaking hand to dry your eyes
And whisper softly to you it’ll be alright
Track Name: If I Could Only Tell You
If I Could Only Tell You


they're lyin' when they tell you that love's an easy game
it's the loneliness without you that's driving me insane
It's only when I hold you, it's every time we touch
It's when I have to let you go, that it starts to hurt

I know its not your fault that i'm on my knees in the dirt
You don't know it but you know how to turn the knife inside me where it hurts

If I could only tell you darling
If I could only find the words
If I could only hear you sayin'
That I'm the only one

I can tell that you've been cryin', cos I've been cryin' too
I can see your heart's been dyin' honey, so darlin' tell the truth
You've been holding it inside you, and I've been doing the same
We've been lookin' where the sun's been shinin' but all we see is rain

I know its not your fault that i'm on my knees in the dirt
You don't know it but you know how to turn the knife inside me where it hurts

If I could only tell you darling
If I could only find the words
If I could only hear you sayin'
That I'm the only one


Every time I see you smile, everything I watch you do
Everyday reminds me that I'm in love with you
But I can't say a word now I've been holdin' back
So I carry on without you, and all I see is black

I know its not your fault that i'm on my knees in the dirt
You don't know it but you know how to turn the knife inside me where it hurts


If I could only tell you darling
If I could only find the words
If I could only hear you sayin'
That I'm the only one
Track Name: Jennifer
Jennifer

I won’t admit I didn’t take the time
Can’t say that I didn’t cross the line
Jenny if you give me just a little more time, to turn it round
I’d drink a bottle everyday
Just to try to take it all away
Jenny if you’d just help me to find that line, in time

Walkin’ through the streets of rain
Now I don’t see it the same
Jennifer if you called me I would say I was wrong
But now you are gone


Walkin’ through the streets of rain
Now I don’t see it the same
Jennifer if you called me I would say I was wrong
But now you are gone

Can’t say that I don’t miss your smile
Can’t say I don’t hope in a while
Jenny you’ll decide to give me more time, to turn it round
You took away all of my fears
Took away my darkest years
Jenny I never thought that you’d have me here, in tears

Walkin’ through the streets of rain
Now I don’t see it the same
Jennifer if you called me I would say I was wrong
But now you are gone

*but I still love you darling, and I always will*
Track Name: Lay Down
Lay Down

I got your photograph on my whisky bottle
Make love to me put your foot on the throttle
Slip off your gown sweat stingin’ my eyes
Lay down I’ll give you a sweet surprise

Lay down let me pour my love on you
Lay down and do that thing that you do
Lay down what we’re doin’ it can’t be so wrong
Lay down and give it to me all night long

Come closer let me feel your touch
And I know I need it much too much
Running my fingers down your back
Slow down you’ll give yourself a heart attack

Lay down let me pour my love on you
Lay down and do that thing that you do
Lay down what we’re doin’ it can’t be so wrong
Lay down and give it to me all night long

Lay down, lay down , lay down on me
Lay down, lay down , lay down on me
Lay down, lay down , lay down on me
Lay down, lay down , lay down on me


Pull closer let me hear you breathing
Feel your power feel your heart beating
Kiss your lips and I gotta be dreaming
No one around to hear you screaming

Lay down let me pour my love on you
Lay down and do that thing that you do
Lay down what we’re doin’ it can’t be so wrong
Lay down and give it to me all night long
Track Name: Sin For Nothing
Sin for Nothing

Your eyes invite me, your touch is tempting me to sin, and slide it in
I didn’t know, that domination was your thing, oh let me in
I didn’t see you, as an angel of the night, one night’s delight
My heart was racing, as I flashed that wicked smile, of denial

A little sin for nothing
Its somethin’ I just can’t comprehend
I could take you to heaven
Put you down and have you coming again

My hands are tied, as I await your sweet surprise, your red sun rise
Anticipation, they say is the thrill of the chase, thrill of your taste
There is one thing, that I just can’t understand, your promised land
I could teach you, how to stop that red sun rise, in your moonlight

A little sin for nothing
Its somethin’ I just can’t comprehend
I could take you to heaven
Put you down and have you coming again

Pot of gold at the end of my rainbow, a delightful disgrace
Hot emotions are coming down all across your face

A little sin for nothing
Its somethin’ I just can’t comprehend
I could take you to heaven
Put you down and have you coming again
Track Name: Liz
Liz

I wish I could take back the things that I said
And tell you I wish you nothing but the best
And say I hope
You find the love
That you’re looking for
You tried to understand every tear that I cried
And now all I want is to apologise
And ask
Your forgiveness
One last time

I was lost in my anger consumed by my hatred of me
Lost in the darkness torn from the light I can’t see
I look on the world and try to remember a time
A page in a notebook last photograph in my mind

Now your voice fades in the night
Lost in a vision that’s so out of sight
As I think
To myself
Where I went wrong
Sometimes I still see your face in a dream
And it makes me think how things could’ve been
But I wake
And I find
That she’s still gone

I was lost in my anger consumed by my hatred of me
Lost in the darkness torn from the light I can’t see
I look on the world and try to remember a time
A page in a notebook last photograph in my mind
Track Name: My Open Arms
My Open Arms

Lately I’ve been thinking, about the way it should be
You paint a picture, you paint it black like me
You search your conscience, for a love you once knew
But the words they lose their meaning, behind the disguise of a fool

From behind the laughter your tears fall like rain
Behind a see through smile your hidden cries in vain
In a clouded vision of the love you used to see
Another passing moment where your heart used to be

Let me help you see it through
Let me make it alright
Give or take a tear or two
We’ll get through the night
And in the morning sun
Let me take your pain away
Leave the past let it burn
you’ll learn to love again someday

You cry alone too often, or so it seems to me
Picking up the pieces, of your shattered dream
Let me take a moment, to look in your weary eyes
The love I give you now, is a love that never dies

So take the hand that I hold out to you
To wipe away your tears is the least that I can do
And as long as I draw breath I’ll never let you down
There may be times I’m far away but I’ll always be around

Let me help you see it through
Let me make it alright
Give or take a tear or two
We’ll get through the night
And in the morning sun
Let me take your pain away
Leave the past let it burn
you’ll learn to love again someday

If I see you cry
These tears of yours are tears of mine
I will run to you
I’ll hold you if you want me to
Please don’t say goodbye
Life without you would be living a lie
There’s nothing I won’t do
To see you smile and make it through
