Track Name: Falling Apart
Falling Apart

I don’t know who to be or what to say anymore
I’m feeling pretty stunned
Yeah I’m absolutely floored
I can’t change what’s been
It’s been me for so long
I don’t think I need to change
I’m doing no harm

And I’m no failure
I’m Just falling apart.

I don’t want to fight
Don’t want to hurt anyone
I want the same for me
I think life should be fun
I’m being true to myself and I try not to judge
I’m honest with you, because I believe that I must.

So I’m no failure
I’m just falling apart.
I’m no failure
I’m just falling apart.

When I look in myself I know there is truth
I’ve got so much love, that I’ll give some to you
But the world’s self-absorbed and it causes me pain
If you understood there’d be no need to explain
That I’m no failure
I’m no failure
I’m just falling apart.

Falling apart
Because I’ve got a broken heart.
Track Name: Something You're Not
Something You’re Not

Don’t be so nervous
I’m not going to hurt you
I probably want the same as you
So tell me, and we’ll compare

Don’t be so quiet
This timid thing, I don’t buy it
There’s a fire in your eyes
And it’s burning into mine

I just want to know who you are
When you’re not hiding your heart and standing apart and…
Wasting your time on something you’re not.

Don’t be so angry
Just because I’m not making it easy
I want to see what you’re made of
And whether you’d try to deceive me

Don’t be so frightened
There’s safety inside and you’ll find it
It’s up to you to release yourself
And discover the love within.

I just want to know who you are
When you’re not hiding your heart and standing apart and…
Wasting your time on something you’re not.

Don’t be so doubtful
Of the truth that you see around you
Your mind is strong if you exercise it
But it dies if you deny it.
Track Name: Tears
Tears

When something moves inside me
I know then, it’s so clear
This isn’t just another number
But the reason for my tears

Listen very closely
And faintly you might hear
A heartbeat through the thunder
And the falling of a tear…
The falling of a million tears

Something moves when I’m inside you
For the worse or for the better
Once I’m there I have escaped
And nothing seems to matter

The violins are weeping
For my loss of innocence
My eyes close with pure emotion
A memory full of secrets kept
Track Name: Upon Deaf Ears
Upon Deaf Ears

Something tells me
That I should be somewhere else
I’m a loaded gun
Something tells me
I should be someone else
I don’t trust myself

But I’m not listening
It’s all contradiction
And it makes me doubt myself even more
I don’t need help
To criticize myself
I do that perfectly on my own

Something tells me
I’m a sucker for fun
On a merry-go-round
Something tells me
That I’ll never be satisfied
I’m a formal complaint

All upon deaf ears
Track Name: Behind Your Eyes
Behind Your Eyes

What’s it like from behind your eyes?
Where do you look? How do you decide?
What’s it sound like in your head?
When you’re alone lying in your bed
Don’t close your eyes…

Cos’ I want to know
What happens in there?
Didn’t you know?
It’s all in your head.

Who is the one that goes by your name?
And skilfully plays those social games
Do you pretend that you don’t hear your secret thoughts and your silent fears?
Don’t close your mind…

Don’t close you eyes
Don’t close your mind
Don’t close your eyes…

Cos’ I want to know
What happens in there?
Didn’t you know?
It’s all in your head
How can I know?
If you won’t tell
Didn’t you know?
It’s all in your head.
Track Name: You Know The Deal
You Know The Deal

I can do what I want
I don’t have to ask you
I can say what I think
I don’t have to pass it by you

I don’t know what to do that’s right and true and pleases you
I always lose.

I can laugh when I want
I don’t have to mind you
I can love how I want
I don’t have to love only you

I can only say what I feel and what is real
You know the deal… I’m just being me.

I can go where I want
I don’t have to take you
You can choose what you like
And not have to fear you’ll hurt me

Everything could be allright
For a little while we could smile
And know that we each have our lives
I can only say what I feel and what is real
You know the deal… I’m just being me.

Sitting her quietly,
Thinking too freely
Something just came over me
I don’t have to love only you
I don’t have to love only you
I don’t have to love only you
I don’t have to love only you
Track Name: Really Truly
Really Truly

I’ll meet you at the corner
I’ll meet you there at noon
Remember that it’s urgent
I need to see you soon

Cos something’s happened that is very, very wrong
And I cant tell you now not over the phone (not over the phone)

But I promise you that this time it’s really true
Yeah I promise you that this time it’s really true

I’ll meet you at the corner
Ill meet you there at two
We’ll sit and have a coffee
And you can tell me what to do

You’ve got to promise me I’ve only got your word
And I’m so frightened of being overheard (we’re being overheard)

I’ll meet you at the corner
I’ll meet you ‘round the side
I’ll meet you in the alley
Or in the shed behind

Please remember that my life is on the line
And I’ll remember that you do it all the time (you do it all the time)
Track Name: The Life of Brian
The Life Of Brian

He sits in a chair behind the tollgate, every other day
And all he needs to do is take one day…
He has to get away
So he takes himself away to the beach
Where he’s out of reach
Meets a young hitcher and they speak
And he finds a moment of freedom

Oh and he finally speaks his mind about his wasted life
And for a brief moment he is flying
This is the life of Brian.
This is the life of Brian
It’s just the life of Brian
Who really cares about Brian anyway?

Well you may not really care but the message has you scared
Don’t want to make the same mistakes
Not the ones that Brian made
He keeps handing you advice
It’ll make you think more than twice
It must be hard to realise that you don’t like your wife
Or your life, or your life, or your life

This is the life of Brian
This is the life of Brian
He may think it sucks
But who really gives a fuck?
It’s just the life of Brian
Who gives a shit about Brian anyway?
It’s always easier to look the other way

He must be of sixty years or more
And he’s knocking on heavens door
There’s something that’s been troubling him of late
And he won’t forget his mates
He has a miserable story to pass us down
And wipe away our frowns
All we have to do is sit and listen
To the life of Brian

No one really cares about Brian anyway
It’s just too easy to look the other way
But tell me… What if Brian was your name?
Would it be so easy to look the other way?

It’s just the life of Brian
The life of Brian
Track Name: Little Ditty
Little Ditty

How can you live like this?
I hear you say
How can you forget the songs of yesterday?

Do you remember that one it goes something like this?
Do you remember this one?
It goes something like…

Doo doo doo n doop
Doot doo dum dee day
Doo doo doo n doop
Doot doo dum dee day
Doo Dum Dee day ☺

How can you forget the words again?
That song was the best
We sang it every day

Why should I give it up for what you’ve kept from the past?
I just do what I do and then I move on fast

Do you remember that one it goes something like this?
Do you remember this one?
It went something like…
Track Name: Lullaby
Lullaby

Stop running now, here’s a good place to rest
I think we lost them back there
I can’t here their foot fall or voices no more
There’s only our hearts moving air

I can’t believe that we made it
The road’s long and you must be tired
So I’ll pretend I’m a giant
In my arms a safe place to hide

And I’ll stand guard here beside you
I’ll keep my eye on this place
So dream on little dreamer
And sleep with a smile on your face

Tomorrow we’ll set of at daybreak
We’ll find food and drink along the way
I know that your feet have got blisters
But we must walk for seven more days

So make sure you rest well tonight dear
Don’t feel you need to be scared
Because I’ll be here while you’re sleeping
Awake and alert and prepared

And I’ll stand guard here beside you
I’ll keep my eye on this place
So dream on little dreamer
And sleep with a smile on your face

In my arms a safe place tonight.
Track Name: I Won't Play
I Won’t Play

I’m in place where is seems like anything goes
Like the patterns in black when I rub my eye-lids when they’re closed
There’s a kaleidoscope where my carpet used to be
I wonder if I can hear what you say you can see?

Don’t look at me that way
I won’t play your stupid games
Don’t speak to me that way
I don’t like your stupid games
I won’t play

I wonder when you will stop toying with my head?
It’s only a matter of time until I’m locked inside my dread
It’s a race for time and I could leave myself for dead
Or find my way back to the place where I last bled

Nothing in this room belongs to me
And I’m too scared to stand up on my feet
There’s too many people walking on the empty streets
There’s no way you’ll ever hear me cry defeat

I wont play your stupid games
Don’t involve me in your games
I’ve got no time for your mind games
Just leave me alone
Because I won’t play
Your stupid games
Track Name: Lend Your Ear
Lend Your Ear

I see you running
But you can’t get far enough away
I see you laughing
On the other side of your face
I see you mouthing
The words that you can’t say
I see you trying
To look the other way

So what are you afraid of here?
I only want to lend your ear
You never know it might change your mind
If you find out how I feel inside

I see you running
But can you get far enough away?
I see you laughing
But did you know that I can see your face?
I see you mouthing
The words you want to say
I see you crying
As you look the other way
Track Name: Still Up
Still Up

I’m so tired of working so hard
I’m so tired of sealing up my heart
I’m so tired dreaming day and night
I’m so tired of listening to you fight

So sleep now, sleep now
No babies crying
Sleep now…sleep now
The whole world’s tired

I’m so tired walking through this door
I’m so tired of sleeping on this floor
I’m so tired felling like a whore
I’m so tired losing this bloody war

So sleep now, sleep now
No babies crying
Sleep now…sleep now
The whole world’s tired
