In the morning there was laughter The silence came after In a blanket of sun light I don't know what’s wrong or what's right Say hello with your fingers Place them between the clouds Somehow I followed somewhere Well I'm not allowed Let me in or let me out Whatever it is, I feel it now All I need is September Broken down in the weather I'm strong Let me just get there Let me know you care The moon came down like a fire From underneath the depth of desire All I need is that fire The one burning deep down inside her Let it out, let it out I was a shadow in your picture It lingers to my bones I can feel it with my fingers I cant leave it alone There was a little bit of darkness I was little bit scared I was never really honest You were never really there She wasn't wearing nothing no Except a suitcase she hides She wasn't wearing nothing though Except the the colours of my pride and I... I feel the colours inside The colours inside

Madness 04:41
I was on the mattress I was staring at the holes in the walls I was looking through the madness and the sadness I could feel it all The waves came crashing While the kids were outside laughing And the grass is... Blowing in the wind I was in the backroom, smoking on paint fumes Caught in the vacuum of my mind If I find it and rewind it Holding time It all comes down to the way you move It all comes down to the way you move with it It all comes down on when you’re feeling blue It all comes down on you And then the young ones, running down the beach Somewhere out there, out of reach With the wind in their hair and sand on the their feet They promised not to leave The sun comes down when you're breaking through The sun comes down when you're breaking through it It all comes down when you're feeling blue It all comes down on you

There she was, loves comes knocking There she's going on her way again I got nothing and I cant stop it I got nothing good to say Im going down to the old town and I hear the people going crazy I got my hair down I got my head down I got my hair down I want to get back in it I want it babe I can tell you want to come with me I can tell you want to take me too Somewhere where we can be Something brand new Somewhere heading the light Somewhere across the water Somewhere where we can try To live free and wild To live free or die There she goes mama, there she was Loves comes knocking on my door again I don't know what was wrong with me I push all I got to give away I'm going down to the old parade I'll tell the people to love each other I was wrong to tell you I was good to say I just love you babe, don’t go away I was out of my mind and I'm out of my head I don’t know what I’m doing here instead Cause I can hear you crying I can see you hold your breath I can hear you crying in the wind I want to tell you that I love you babe I want to tell you what I could bring I want to tell you that I love you baby I want to tell you everything I want to tell you everything I want to tell you everything Thats on my mind You’re on my mind You’re on my mind You’re on my mind

Sweet Love 04:19
Sweet love of mine going back go behind I seen you in the time you were crying I didn't mean to hurt but there's something deep beneath the dirt I can find it in my eyes Going grey and going blue well I don’t know what to do I’ll head out on the ocean to find you Sun in your eyes, love was surprising I go deep in the light for you Flowers in your hair, look at you over there Shining in your heart, you are singing Bring me to my knees, darling I beg you please To come home, coming to you if you need It took too much time just to tell you that I love you You’re on my mind, I don’t know if I can pull it on my own Tonight I lost all my inhibitions I’m going out there in the cold Out there in the cold Little light you shine in the deepness of the sky In the darkness of the night I come crying Its you that I adore and I have fallen in the storm I know nothing left is normal cause normal is changing Treasure to my heart, I'll take it apart I'm so sorry for what was cold and cracking I'm shacked up and shaking I'm cold and I'm breaking I’m making myself feel blue I'm holding on to you It took too much time just to tell you that I love you You're on my mind, I don't know if I can pull it on my own Tonight I lost all my inhibitions I'm going out there in the cold Out there in the cold Out there in the cold

I don't know What I have done It seems as though I'm on the run Breaking out Cutting loose I don't know Where to go What to choose What to choose I don't even think we had a chance babe I don't even think we had the chance to dance no I just wanna hold your hand Watch yourself, watch your step, watch them dance I don't know Why I’m so scared Of going up these broken stairs Out of luck Out of time Lose yourself while I... Lose my mind Lose your mind Lose your mind I don't even think we had a chance babe I don't even think we had the chance to dance no I just wanna hold your hand Watch yourself, watch your step, watch them dance Watch yourself, watch your step, watch them dance Watch yourself, watch your step, watch them dance

I was saluted by the light outside Where the loose leaves went floating by As they fly, oh I wonder why I can see the light but I cant see the sky Why do I try to draw the lines but never find a time to cry? Never mind Never mind Never mind I'm going round and round on this merry go-round Back and forth, to the north and then back down Up through the hills, through the mountain and clouds Out in the fields where we were not allowed Chasing the light that we never be found Let it down, don't let me down baby I’m going up and down on the carousel Where it goes, when it ends, I can't tell I'm off and I'm lost, I'm drunk off your spell I got caught with the cost of not knowing you well We opened the doors from heaven to hell Oh well Oh well

Cold Man 04:30
He's a cold man would you look at him now Don't know where he is and he don't know how Don't know what I did but it's breaking him down He's got a cold heart sitting in dark Don't know how it works till you take it apart Don't know where it hurts until you’re hitting it hard Though he knows it, it's all what you choose Broken down breaking and singing the blue You thinks you're perfect Your just a wild cat under attack Folded in the corner with the beast on your back Your mind is breaking Your mind breaking All the time that its taking Your mind is breaking He’s cold man doing what he can Going through the motion that he don't understand nothing You gotta let it go, let it go You gotta let it go He's just a lame duck out of his luck Don't know what he wanted but it wasn't enough no Sometimes he don't trust people I'm just a heartache I take what I take Eye for an eye, a lie I cant fake it There's no freedom Where is the freedom? Cause I swear I can't see it Where is the freedom? I was out in the cold and my heart was calling I don't know where to go if I keep crawling I was out in the snow and the stars were falling

Little heart fly Come fly my way It takes time Yes time it takes So I lied To get my way Its in my eyes I tried to change Its too late Its too late So I cried These tears could fill a lake I lose my mind I can feel it in my brain Down my spine My body shakes I can change I can change
