It's a Question of Lust

Fragile, like a baby in your arms
Be gentle with me, I'd never willingly
Do you harm
Apologies
Are all you seem to get from me
But just like a child
You make me smile
When you care for me
And you know......
It's a question of lust
It's a question of trust
It's a question of not letting
What we've built up
Crumble to dust
It is all of these things and more
That keep us together
Independence - Is still important for us though (we realise)
It's easy to make, the stupid mistake
Of letting go (do you know what I mean)
My weaknesses, You know each and every one (it frightens me)
But I need to drink, more than you seem to think
Before I'm anyone's and you know......
Kiss me goodbye when I'm on my own
But you know that I'd rather be home
It's a question of lust...

White Queen (As It Began)

so sad her eyes
smiling dark eyes
so sad her eyes
as it began
on such a breathless night as this
upon my brow the lightest kiss
i walked alone
and all around the air did say
my lady soon will stir this way
in sorrow known
the white queen walks and
the night grows pale
stars of lovingmess in her hair
needing - unheard
pleading - one word
so sad my eyes
she cannot see
how did thee fare, what have thee seen
the mother of the willow green
i call her name
and 'neath her window have i stayed
i loved the footsteps that she made
and when she came
white queen how my heart did ache
and dry my lips no word would make
so still i wait
my goddess hear my darkest fear
i speak too late
it's for evermore that i wait
dear friend goodbye
no tear in my eyes
so sad it ends
as it began

Fireworks

I Stretched Over To Reach You
I Tried To Meet You I've Been Wrong
Now The Fireworks In Me Are All Gone
It's Time I Realized
My Girl You Make All The Smart Moves
And Sees Through All My Wrongs
When The Fireworks In Me Are All Wrong
Well Then I Realized

And I Don't Need Convincing
I've Seen Enough To Want To Try And Change Things
You Fell In Love I Fell In Line
I Thought I Found My Place
Before I Knew How Much It Cost To Play It Safe

Have I Let You
I Never Let You Down

I Work All Day And I Won't Fight
When It Feels Right And Its Wrong
When The Fireworks In Me Are All Gone
Well Then I Realized

And I Won't Need Convincing
I've Seen Enough To Want To Try And Change Things
You Fell In Love I Fell In Line
I Thought I Found My Place
Before I Knew How Much It Cost To Play It Safe

Could I Leave You
I Never Let You Down

Fix You

When you try your best, but you don't succeed
When you get what you want, but not what you need
When you feel so tired, but you can't sleep
Stuck in reverse

When the tears come streaming down your face
When you lose something you can't replace
When you love someone, but it goes to waste
Could it be worse?

Lights will guide you home
And ignite your bones
And I will try to fix you

High up above or down below
When you too in love to let it go
If you never try you'll never know
Just what you're worth

Lights will guide you home
And ignite your bones
And I will try to fix you

The Scientist

Come up to meet you, tell you I'm sorry,
You don't know how lovely you are.
I had to find you, tell you I need you,
Tell you I set you apart.

Tell me your secrets and ask me your questions,
Oh lets go back to the start.
Running in circles, coming in tales,
Heads are a science apart.

Nobody said it was easy,
It's such a shame for us to part.
Nobody said it was easy,
No one ever said it would be this hard

Oh take me back to the start.

I was just guessing at numbers and figures,
Pulling your puzzles apart.
Questions of science, science and progress,
Do not speak as loud as my heart.

Tell me you love me, come back and haunt me,
Oh and I rush to the start.
Running in circles, chasing tails,
And coming back as we are.

Nobody said it was easy, it's such a shame for us to part.
Nobody said it was easy, noone ever said it would be so hard.
I'm going back to the start.

Dont't Give Up

in this proud land we grew up strong
we were wanted all along
I was taught to fight, taught to win
I never thought I could fail

no fight left or so it seems
I am a man whose dreams have all deserted
I've changed my face, I've changed my name
but no one wants you when you lose

don't give up, 'cos you have friends
don't give up , you're not beaten yet
don't give up
I know you can make it good

though I saw it all around
never thought I could be affected
thought that we'd be the last to go
it is so strange the way things turn

drove the night toward my home
the place that I was born, on the lakeside
as daylight broke, I saw the earth
the trees had burned down to the ground

don't give up, you still have us
don't give up, we don't need much of anything
don't give up, 'cause somewhere there's a place
where we belong

rest your head, you worry too much
it's going to be alright
when times get rough
you can fall back on us
don't give up, please don't give up

'got to walk out of here
I can't take anymore
going to stand on that bridge
keep my eyes down below
whatever may come and whatever may go
that river's flowing, that river's flowing

moved on to another town
tried hard to settle down
for every job, so many men
so many men no-one needs

don't give up, 'cause you have friends
don't give up, you're not the only one
don't give up, no reason to be ashamed
don't give up, you still have us
don't give up now, we're proud of who you are
don't give up, you know it's never been easy
don't give up, 'cause I believe there's the a place
there's a place where we belong

Yellow

Look at the stars,
Look how they shine for you,
And everything you do,
Yeah they were all yellow,

I came along
I wrote a song for you
And all the things you do
And it was called yellow

So then I took my turn
Oh all the things I've done
And it was all yellow

Your skin
Oh yeah your skin and bones
Turn into something beautiful
D'you know you know I love you so
You know I love you so

I swam across
I jumped across for you
Oh all the things you do
Cause you were all yellow

I drew a line
I drew a line for you
Oh what a thing to do
And it was all yellow

Your skin
Oh yeah your skin and bones
Turn into something beautiful
D'you know for you i bleed myself dry
For you i bleed myself dry

Its true look how they shine for you
look how they shine for you
look how they shine for you
look how they shine for you
look how they shine for you
look how they shine
look at the stars look how they shine for you

Leaving Eden

Put the thorn in my side,
the coins on my eyes
I'm not awake,
I'm leaving Eden
And all her frozen charms lie cold in my arms
Panic went away and left me reeling
It's warm outside but the weather fails to hide
the stinging loss inside
For in the back of my mind
I always thought I'd find
my way to paradise
On I'd walk to paradise ...

But grace and lies locked the door
from the other side
And now there's not much else there
Grace and lies
In all how long can you hide,
how long?
The cost of innocence is the loss of innocence
Some may pass away,
but some die screaming
When it came to my time,
oh it took me by surprise
Was it my mistake,
or am I born for giving in?
