Track Name: Letting Go
We are the lights shining bright in many different colours
All just trying to make our own way while hoping for positive change.
There are those who hide among us in the darkness not willing to grow,
when I found her she gave me a reason, a reason not to be alone.

The way the hair sits on her shoulders reminds me of October and how the leaves all fall.

I used to run with the wolves and watch them prey upon the weak,
I watched them climb up on their pedestals and look at those beneath,
I was a voice among the many a coward in their ranks,
I placed faith in hollow people and heard them talk behind my back.

But there are honest people here and I spent a year with them.
This place doesn’t feel the same,
these days our hearts skip to a different beat,
we’ve all got problems, some with moving on and some with letting go,
but I still feel it in my bones like giving up would feel so wrong and no matter where you go
I hope you find your way back home, I drove past out old house just to see how it felt,
remember when we burned the furniture so we wouldn’t fucking freeze to death.
I fell apart like my father before me.
They promised the world while my family ignored me.
I spent so many nights here
and now nothing feels right.
Track Name: Holyhead
For sure we’ve been left behind the streets are so quiet especially at night
and we all know that its broken as we wait for the tide to arrive.
We wouldn’t change it, no not for the world because memories are special things that teach us how to love.
All our friends packed their lives into boxes and they set their sights on the sea.
There’s a method to my madness, a reason for my passion,
a piece that fits the puzzle that is my life.
For sure when the summer ends
you know I should be leaving but there’s one thing that I don’t get.
Your voice is a magnet pulling my back down to the floor.
There’s a method to my madness, a reason for my passion,
a piece that fits the puzzle that is my life.
There it goes again she said
nothing in life is certain but death
and sometimes we still cling to the hope
that we might not have to die alone.
Track Name: Dark Nights
I bought a map today
and put lines through the names of the places I’ve been.
I’ve got nights to burn and many reasons why.
Oh look there it goes again,
another night where we can all pretend that we’re not all part of the same problem.
There’s nothing I want from this place,
There’s nothing I want from this place,
There’s nothing I want from this place,
Old friends fall by the way side
and in the back of my mind
I think I always knew I’d end up alone.
I know I’ve been a burden and
I’ve been acting like i’m dead
and I know that there’s a distance,
I’m the one who let it grow, just like these feelings.
I wonder where you are tonight.
What ever happened to facing your problems,
I watch them falling like the leaves do in Autumn.
What ever happened to the people that we used to be?
That tiny spark that our parents used to hold before their bodies got so cold.
Do you ever feel like you’re talking to yourself?
That they only really give a shit when they’ve a problem you can fix?
Do you ever feel like the walls are closing in? that the only reason you’re still here is a matter of convenience?
Time heals everything that’s what they say, but they haven’t lived this life,
watched all the sleepless nights turn us into all the things we never thought that we would be.
I often wonder how we got so broken man??
Track Name: Postcards
It was a question that we never thought to ask, a fleeting moment that had passed and you know now, you know that shes never coming back.
It started when she saved me.
The days were long and the nights were short
and I just couldn’t go home.
I see her in every picture that he takes
and on night when she cant sleep we sometimes
talk about her dreams.
But it lonely
living like I’m not alive
is this crossing the line?
Take me away,
I’m ready to go,
lets go to a place where
nobody knows.
I’ll be your courage and you’ll be my luck,
the end of a chapter but the start of a book.
Book that I don’t ever wanna read
pages full of reasons why you cant be with me.
Another summer goes past
who knows it might be our last.
I’m sending postcards to a girl who never knew what she had.
This is a chance that I take
with every promise I break
I’m writing letters to the person that you want me to be.
Maybe there’s no one to blame,
this place just isn’t the same.
I’ve got a feeling maybe I’m right where you want me to be.
Take me away,
I’m ready to go,
lets go to a place where
nobody knows.
I’ll be your courage and you’ll be my luck,
the end of a chapter but the start of a book.
I lie alone but maybe tomorrow I’ll bury the sorrow that blankets my life.
I lie alone but maybe tomorrow I’ll bury the sorrow that blankets my life.
You came along at the wrong time in my life,
I see signs of the seasons when I look in your eyes.
and I know it’s bittersweet but I’ve decided to be
the reason for your madness and severe lack of sleep.
I hope you happy.
Track Name: I Know I Can't
She is the light behind the words
that I have given to the sky.
She is the thing that caused the feelings
that I keep bottled up inside.
I want to tell her how she saved me
when my mother died.
But I know I can’t.
Yeah I know I can’t
Track Name: A Year Later
I took a walk way past midnight down by the old factories.
There’s no one alive in the city tonight as old men they sleep by the road side.
She’s a storm blowing up and down the coast,
but all I hear are sounds of rain drops singing songs against my window.
A bitter melody reminds me of the person that she used to be.
I never try to get mad but that’s all I ever do,
I can’t shake this hopeless feeling that I’ve been taking out on you.
Is there a reason for this distance? is it something that I lack?
I think I lost it as a child
and I might never get it back.
But a lot can change in a year.
I’ve been waiting a long time,
losing battles for the sake of the one I love.
I’ve been waiting my whole life,
writing letters to the ones that I let go of,
I remember the night when you closed your eyes,
it wont help but the sky is a little brighter now.
You’ve been living like you know there’s nothing left
but I hope you’ve got a reason to believe in us.
Track Name: Distance
I never meant for this to happen.
Lately you’ve been so distant and I just can’t work out why.
We’re still living lies with liars on our minds
and everyone we know has died a little inside.
and its fucked up, but its okay.
I wonder how you and me we ever got this way.
I fucking miss you.
The kind of thing that makes me hate you,
like the words you gave tonight.
Will the distance in between us help us grow strong? it might.
Cause I’ve been building bridges, bridges with paperbacks.
Every time I look at you it hurts.
and its fucked up, but its okay.
I wonder how you and me we ever got this way.
I fucking miss you.
I’ll see you in the autumn when the summers grown long.
You’ll pay your debt to distance
and you’ll make your way home.
and I’ll meet you there.
Yeah I’ll meet you there.
Track Name: Magnets
She said that I’m cold and callous, that its her that I hate.
She said that i am a magnet, pulling her back to me.
Despite all of her sadness, its a promise I break.
I live a life free of malice, shes a chance I wont take.
She’s just a chance I wont take.
She’s just a chance I wont take.
When I think about the night when you left, and the things that you said, I still wonder how silence could hurt you so bad.
Now every day I try to live, like there might be more to this and maybe there is.
With winter gone the days grow long, I think I might have met someone smarter than you.
As we talk about the books we’ve read I hope there’s more to this.
Track Name: I've Got Nothing Left
Tonight I watched a friend pour her guts out on the floor
and I wonder how much sadness she keeps trapped behind her tongue.
You know I’ve felt that way maybe more than I would admit.
At night I often wonder how she even bottles it.
Take a look in the mirror
tell me what you see,
is this what you wanted?
Try and stay awake.
Just for a little while
and save me from my nightmares.
Every time I’m near you,
man it hurts like hell
and I cant stand it.
You saw love in me for the last time.
I think you know how I feel about you.
I think you know that I don’t really care what come next? we’re just friends?
and I’ve been trying my best but you’ve been so fucking distant.
The sad thing about our friendship is how I never know
if you’re genuinely hurting or if this is all for show.
It’s been a bad year and when I see you it still hurts like hell.
I saw the sun way past midnight, is everything lost?
Maybe it’s time that I leave here and go nowhere at all.
I saw myself way past midnight miles from home?
she said I’m dying to see you but cant pick up the phone
I’m completely lost, I’m completely miserable.
I’m completely lost, I’m completely miserable.
I’m completely lost, I’m completely miserable.
I’m completely lost, I’m completely miserable.
I’m completely miserable.
I’m completely miserable.
I’m completely miserable.
I’m completely done.
