Track Name: Fade Out
FADE OUT

We used to fight all night and my heart locked tight
And I remember how we were
I wish I hadn't traded those places to see us fade away
Don't you stare at me, now I forget how
To break away from your lies

I just can't take the pain you bring
I lose myself in the world you're in

Oh I need to be someone
While I wait for your face to fade out
Without your break you were no one
Now I'm praying that you'll quickly fade out

We used to try to be right
Always losing sight
Of what we wanted more for us
You said you couldn't find the right words
When I asked for more than you could give me
It can't be too hard to find
A better way to loosen our grip

I just can't take the pain you bring
I lose myself in the world you're in

Oh I need to be someone
While I wait for your face to fade out
Without your break you were no one
Now I'm praying that you'll quickly fade out
I need to be someone else

Now the world's fallen at your feet
Now that I'm gone
And I'm not afraid to start again, with you
Moving along
Why don't you need to be someone else?

Oh I need to be someone
While I wait for your face to fade out
Without your break you were no one
Now I'm praying that you'll quickly fade out

Fade out on your own
Track Name: Secretly Worship You
SECRETLY WORSHIP YOU

You capsulated my world
You formulated the perfect plan for us
You translated my words
And made sense of the space between us

You said we will find a way together
But I didn't act the way I'm supposed to
And now I'm losing my way without you
Believe what you feel
And not what I don't say

We crawl out of the imaginary
You walk out, that's why I am so wary
I block out how much I love you
I secretly worship you

I believed you were my world
I denied we needed some time to rebuild us
I grieved on your words
You didn't know I felt like this

You said we will find a way together
But I didn't act the way I'm supposed to
And now I'm losing my way without you
Believe what you feel
And not what I don't say

We crawl out of the imaginary
You walk out, that's why I am so wary
I block out how much I love you
I secretly worship you

Soon you'll be in my shoes
Knowing that you don't belong
Needing all the things that are gone
You'll feel this way someday
And I've got some things to say
I need to show you that I'm over you

We crawl out of the imaginary
You walk out, that's why I am so wary
I block out how much I love you
I secretly worship you

Drowning in this place we call home
I secretly worship you
Track Name: The Otherside
THE OTHERSIDE

All my life I've watched you
Watching the TV but the star is on the radio
Wondering where you'd be now
If I'd stopped the world from turning like you did
Ever want to wake up now?
Burning down the tears that fall from the otherside

I'm not gonna be there when you need me
I won't live your lies like you want me to
And no one's waiting for your feet to touch the ground

Now you're planning to stay but just keep walking away
I'm gonna take it this far, i'm gonna leave you this scar
Now you're searching again it's so hard breathing again
Tell me who is losing who

How are you gonna see yourself?
Now everything's changing but the stars on the radio
Feeling all alone again
Finding strength to hurt, 'cos nothing ever really works
Ever want to stay asleep?
Drowning all your fears that fall from the otherside

I'm not gonna be there when you need me
I won't live your lies like you want me to
And no one's waiting for your feet to touch the ground

Now you're planning to stay but just keep walking away
I'm gonna take it this far now you're leaving this scar
Now you're searching again it's so hard breathing again
Tell me who is losing who
Track Name: Lonely Boy
LONELY BOY

He waits for nothing at all
Every morning the sound of the radio
Makes him want her more
He hears her voice in all of his favourite tunes
The poets writing their pain down
Words only for you
‘cos she’s not here

And ‘cos he’s missing her
But he keeps watching

Lonely boy, lonely boy, lonely boy waits for her
To feel his stare ‘cos everywhere, everywhere he follows her
All these years, all his tears
Still he feels that he can’t be without her

He’s trapped in all your life
Take away, take away every part of you
Get back to what you was like
And try to lose the stain that’s been left on you

And ‘cos he’s missing her
But he keeps watching

Lonely Boy, lonely boy, lonely boy waits for her
To feel his stare,‘cos everywhere, everywhere he follows her
All these years, all his tears
Still he feels that he can’t be without her

And it was just a matter of time
Before you hit the floor again
Hit the floor again, and again, and again

Lonely Boy, lonely boy, lonely boy waits for her
To feel his stare,‘cos everywhere, everywhere he follows her
All these years, all his tears
Still he feels that he can’t be without her

How will he be without her?
Track Name: Fiction
FICTION

How long will you keep chasing
The things that leave you wanting?
How long will your dreams keep you
Awake at night and alone?
You loved the high life
Living in the moments you know you can’t find
You learned to see from
Everyone’s eyes but your own, now you’re blind

Now you’ve finally found what’s keeping you
It was almost lost but now it feels brand new

Now I wanted to be
Your everything
Your strongest link when it all breaks down
I know I can feel things that aren’t real
So to me you’re still fiction
We're still fiction

How long will you keep hoping
That faith is faked and floored
Your dreams keep missing
The night everything turns out alright
Your empty call outs
Searching for another way to find the right one
You miss the fear of being too late
To only find that they’re gone

Now you’ve finally found what’s keeping you
It was almost lost but now it feels brand new

Now I wanted to be
Your everything
Your strongest link when it all breaks down
I know I can feel things that aren’t real
So to me you’re still fiction

That’s me tumbling down
That’s you following
At least we didn’t fall this far alone
But you’re still in two minds
And I still want to be
Your everything

Now I wanted to be
Your everything
Your strongest link when it all breaks down
I know I can feel things that aren’t real
But to me we’re still fiction

Now I wanted to be
Your everything
Your strongest link when it all breaks down
I know I can feel things that aren’t real
But we’ll always be fiction
Track Name: Memories Distorting
MEMORIES DISTORTING

My memory full of everything we started
Dance like no one’s watching
Our swaying bodies keeping time together tonight
My thoughts are full of memories distorting
My life without your touch keeps falling
I liked it best when you were my problem

And you sell it all without knowing why
Buy a little more time to say goodbye
And you lost much more than your innocence
And our bodies shaking

You say I’m young and free again
And beautiful like you
But through my eyes I’m still nothing without you
How was amazing never good enough for you?

A tangled breath of your last words
You run like I’m not watching
My body clock keeping time so slowly tonight
You built your wall to keep you protected
Like the shadows that never stop knocking
I heard you more when you found a problem

And I’d buy it all without knowing why
Stop a little more time to find out why
And I lost it all before your innocence
And our bodies shaking

You say I’m young and free again
And beautiful like you
But through my eyes I’m still nothing without you
How was amazing never good enough for you?

You say I’m young and free again
And beautiful like you
But through my eyes I’m still nothing without you
How was amazing never good enough for you?
An’ how was amazing never good enough?
Track Name: Write A New End
WRITE A NEW END

I lie here without my work of art
I’ll forget all my favourite times now we’re apart
This ain’t a crime that’ll make you forget your heart
Just keep on making your breaks in your
Sweet single way

You’ll come back again
‘cos you can’t be alone for too long
You’ll be just in time to stop me getting over you
It’s always to late to say no
It’s always too soon to let go

Now you’re here again I’ll let you play your part
Your flower smile takes me right back to the start
Lady you being here
It’s time to get hard
Who’s on your mind?
This is the last time I’ll be fine

You’ll come back again
‘cos you can’t be alone for too long
You’ll be just in time to stop me getting over you
It’s always to late to say no
It’s always too soon to let go

Then everything became clear
Face in hands you just wanna disappear
No ones ever felt what I feel here
Missing girl you’re coming back for good
Come back for good

You’ll come back again
‘cos you can’t be alone for too long
You’ll be just in time to stop me getting over you

You might be everything
The queen of make believe
But not what I need
Not what I need
You’re like a superstar
Nothing is too far
But what I need
Is to write a new end

It’s always to late to say no
It’s always too soon to let go
Track Name: A Throne That's Nowhere
A THRONE THAT'S NOWHERE

You're listening
You're preaching
You're wondering, all alone
There's a hope in you
That's feeding you
That's leading you to a throne that's nowhere
You don't need to look up
At the rain that falls
You don't need to look down
To find your feet
The truth is what you believe
So believe you can listen, can listen

Now the prayers don't work at all
And if you push I'm willing to fall
So who's birth means more to you?
Now this is all that you can do
Why is there always more to find
But you never find out why?

A spoken word
A story told
A book that's sold out again
Movie memories
Of future sins
Of tarnished dreams, while you sleep on your own
You don't need to feel good
To hit the floor
You don't need to work out
To be strong
The truth is what you can see
So see if you can listen

Now the prayers don't work at all
And if you push I'm willing to fall
So who's birth means more to you
Now this is all that you can do
Why is there always more to find
But you never find out why?

Now this is all that you can do
This is all that makes you you
Track Name: Almost Ready
ALMOST READY

You make me wait so long
I might be wrong
Thinking we're on
But I'll be in this place
Watching your space
On my own
When I'm with you time flies by
When I'm on my own time stands still

I can still hear you slam that door
Watching your footsteps run to him
I can still feel you here with me
Won't you watch TV with me again?

I'll get down on my knees
'cos I'm almost ready for you
I'm almost ready for you
To say it all with goodbye
Just run away
Just hide away
From a hole that belongs in your life

I know it might be wrong
Is it way too wrong
To fall into you?
But I've been on your case
Losing my face
While you've still got two
When I'm with you I hear no lies
When I'm on my own I know you know

I can still hear you slam that door
Watching your footsteps run to him
I can still feel you here with me
Won't you watch TV with me again?

I'll get down on my knees
'cos I'm almost ready for you
I'm almost ready for you
To say it all with goodbye
Just run away
Just hide away
From a hole that belongs in your life

Well I might be on my knees but
Not for too long
When you were on your knees
I should have been gone
I made it easy on your knees
'cos I was strong
Now I never want to be here again

I'll get down on my knees
'cos I'm almost ready for you
I'm almost ready for you
To say it all with goodbye
Just run away
Just hide away
From a hole that belongs in your life

Now he's cheated on you
And you're watching TV all alone like me
And your footsteps will bring you back to me
Bringing you back to me
Track Name: Wake Up Call
WAKE UP CALL

Press rewind on our time
To replay it all without ever changing a thing
I built us from nothing, a perfect game I wasn't ready to lose
But you didn't ever see the things I saw
You just didn't know
Now all I have left is this feeling
But it's one way, just one way

I am nowhere without you
I'm still in the place you didn't want to share
It's the fallout that leaves a doubt
This is our break up
It's the wake up call

Press forward to right now
Where I wrote my way back into another one of your cries
But you loved this one thing
And it took you back to where you're needed the most
Who needs you the most?
And it breaks me to find
That you see everything that he sees
And you let it show
Now you both share the same feeling
But it's both ways, it's both ways

I am nowhere without you
I'm still in the place you didn't want to share
It's the fallout that leaves a doubt
This is our break up
It's the wake up call

Now I've made it
Now I can feel happy for you
I can play Maiden
And I won't even think of you

I am nowhere without you
I'm still in the place you didn't want to share
It's the fallout that leaves a doubt
This is our break up
It's the wake up call
Track Name: Whenever April Runs
WHENEVER APRIL RUNS

Now and then I feel I’m all alone and watered down
Pick me up and start over
Sometimes it’s almost like you’re on the ground
When someone says
Hey you know you’re never alone

And now I’m starting to feel again
Slowly walking on my feet
And now I’m over with waiting for you
Walking out from your shadows

Run and hide
‘cos your veins stopped flowing
And there’s nothing your life needs more
And you know this can’t keep rolling around on you
So just walk away

Now I stand my arms open wide in front of me
The road is rolling under my feet
All these feelings brought together in perfect clarity
Time to move away from your past

And now I’m starting to feel again
Slowly walking on my feet
And now I’m over with waiting for you
Tell me where are the shadows?

Run and hide
‘cos your veins stopped flowing
And there’s nothing your life needs more
And you know this can’t keep rolling around on you

Won’t you wake up
Can’t we wake up?
