Lyrics

Heavy Mind 

He lays there withered,
He lays there alone
Brittle bones are broken
Leaving a shattered soul.
And I’ll tell you the story
Of what went wrong
To make this old friend of mine
No longer as strong.

It made him question
Why he’s still alive
It made him question
His entire life
When I’m pushed out like this he said
I don’t know what to do
When I’m cast out like this he said
I don’t know who to turn to.

So I spoke to my friend and urgently said
You can’t hold your burdens in your own head
But he didn’t listen, and he held them there
Now he thrives in his own despair.
And I wish I could help him, but it is too late
By not sharing he’s set his own fate
And now he’s a ghost of what he once was
At the once small cost, he’s now at a great loss.

And I never found out what troubled him so
What broke his body and destroyed his soul
I saw the flaws in him after that
But that’s what’ll happen in the aftermath
And the heart of the tale is in front of your eyes
To carry your own burdens is absolutely fine.

But to cage them up inside your own head
Will lead you to the same fate as my friend.

Fool

I hope to see you again,
So just tell me when
I don’t want to be your friend
Your glance hits me pretty strange
And you’re pretty too
God damn it, I could be a fool for you.

Oh do you dream?
Of guys with roses, and pale white teeth.
I may not be that guy but
As sure as hell, I would try
If it meant you’d be a fool for me.

Red wine steins, smokes and aftershave
I’ve got it all written down.
Every single word that I want to say
I guess I’m not as charming as you first found.

Word for word, twisted so absurd
Into no language that I’ve ever heard
And girl if you want
Someone more up front
Then I’ll leave you without a sound at all.

Old Flame

Oh old flame
I died down
Because
You sold me out

You’re delicate
And a delinquent
But you frolic
So frequent
I don’t need your love
I just need your judgement

You are beautiful
But you don’t know
Your loving company
Is a gift to me

You’re delicate
And a delinquent
But you frolic
So frequent
I don’t need your love
I just need your judgement

Sometimes you are
Your worst enemy
And I’ve seen the way
You look at me
Let’s run away
Let’s run away
Let’s run away
We can be ghosts together
Let’s run away
Let’s run away
Let’s run away
We can disappear

(Back first verse)

Chase Our Dreams

This is someone stepping over our clothes
As they’re headed down our stairs
Silently, stood on tiptoes
Rummaging for a taxi’s fare

Cus I need someone where
We embrace the chase for our dreams
Get ourselves thrown outta hotels
And into the streets
But we won’t ever messed around
We’re both on level ground
She knows,
I’d do anything for her though.

And so  I hold my breath
Till the tide rolls in
And those waves crash against my chest
Mortal souls perished in sin
(x2)

Cus I need someone where
We embrace the chase for our dreams
Get ourselves thrown outta hotels
And into the streets
But we won’t ever messed around
We’re both on level ground
She knows,
I’d do anything for her though.

So I went down to the coast
To the beach that I favoured most
Caught a boat and floated down stream
It was all a dream

Good Old Days

And I followed your tracks up the road
Leading me further away from our home
And I tried to turn around
But my stomach had turned me to stone.

Step by step I grow heavier
Can’t go home, so I’ll leave here.
Remember those good old days,
Just you and me sat next to the lake,
Those were the good old days,
Good old days.

And she told me to embrace the sun
Get outside and enjoy the garden
She said Danny boy,
You’re no longer as fun.

Step by step I grow heavier
Can’t go home, so I’ll leave here
Remember those good old days
Just you and me sat next to the lake
Those were the good old days
Good old days.
Good old days, yeah.

Wasting My Life

Well I’m,
Stood at the side of the motor way
Just another day, just any other day
And it seems I’ve wasted my life away
Reminiscing old flames, as I try to forget old flames.

But I won’t be going home
Till the clouds clear
And I fear I don’t know
When that will be, but
Trust me, I’m on my way soon
I’m just waiting for the sun to shine through
I’m just waiting for you.

Follow, follow me home
Follow, follow me home
I was raised, raised at the cross roads
I’m just waiting for those changes to change
I’m just waiting for those changes to change
Waiting for you

Well I’m,
Stood at the side of the motor way
Just another day, just any other day
And it seems I’ve wasted my life away
Reminiscing old flames, as I try to forget old flames.

But I won’t be going home
Till the clouds clear
And I fear I don’t know
When that will be, but
Trust me, I’m on my way soon
I’m just waiting for the sun to shine through
I’m just waiting for you.

Gurn

I saw an old enemy, at the side of the road
He spoke like he missed me, truth be told
As the years had past, we’d equally changed
We spoke like old war veterans, reminiscing old days.
Reminding each other, the faces we’d forgot
Then added a reminder to forget

You Broke me down, As I had broken you
Seems the years gone by, Have settled this feud.
You broke me down, As I had broken you
I caught you on the brown, You caught yourself with someone new.

And you reminded me, of those old times
Waiting for her, as she snorted your lines
Off dead people’s furniture, in a broken home.
No one has returned here, to reclaim their throne.
And it seems like the chest of draws, are painted in colours.
Shades of white, blue and browns, and I know you sleep with others.
Yeah you do, at least every Saturday night
You crawl up to his house, and you slither out of sight.
You use my credit card, to dash up your lines
And you know he’s a bully, not exactly your type.
But the evening is early, and you need your fix tonight.

You Broke me down, As I had broken you
Seems the years gone by, Have settled this feud.
You broke me down, As I had broken you
I caught you on the brown, You caught yourself with someone new.

Every hour I worry, that you’re laying down
Overdosed in a dark alley, with vomit on your blouse
When you come home, feet covered in holes
Needles still in your veins, and a powdered smeared nose.
I don’t cry no, no I’m too strong
I just stand there under the door frame wondering what went wrong.
What went wrong, oh what went wrong, oh what wrong my love.

You Broke me down, As I had broken you
Seems the years gone by, Have settled this feud.
You broke me down, As I had broken you
I caught you on the brown, I caught you with someone new.
