Track Name: Sword
my heart, my heart was aching, aching for you
but I kept, I kept on dreaming, dreaming bout deep blue
and all that i've learnt about love is that love keeps it's guns loaded
and all that i've learnt about pain is that pain keeps it's arms open

No where, no where is better, better than this
so let me, let me fall back into emptiness
where all that i've learnt about love is that love keeps it's guns loaded
and all that i've learnt about pain is that pain keeps it's arms open, it's arms open, it's arms open

Oh I can't put my sword down, turn my back around, turn my back around
when I can't get these words out, turn me back around, turn me background
darling please

Won't you, won't you believe me, ease me away
from all that, all that I cling to, all that I let stay
and all that i've learnt about love is that love keeps it's guns loaded
and all that i've learnt about pain is that pain keeps it's arms open, it's arm open, it's arms open

Oh I can't put my sword down, turn my back around, turn my back around
when I can't get these words out, turn me back around, turn me background
Oh I can't put my sword down, turn my back around, turn my back around
when I can't get these words out, turn me back around, turn me background
darling please
Track Name: You
Oh tomorrow, you've arrived a little late
should known though, you always make me wait
Now my troubles, too long they have stayed by the window
calling out the blame you
you

heard the shuffle, heard the shuffling of feet
felt something pull, pulling at my sleeve
now i'm turning, at every single bend
but somethings caught, and it's all unravelling you
you, you, you

You who coulda been something,
I guess you got what you deserved
all the trouble you kept down
clings to every single word
if you every do get out

don't you ever go blaming anybody else except for you
you, you, you
Track Name: Water
There will be no understating this,
I have done much more than i'll confess
with all these secrets I can't speak
and all these lies I couldn't keep
The water gets cold the water gets deep

Do you still feel my hand upon your neck
like I still feel that chill run down my back
This has broke me bit by bit
now I would sell my soul but the devil took it

the water gets cold and the water gets deep
and the water gets deep

I know time will have his way with me
but we'll all get got eventually
and we'll dig and dig and dig so deep
searching for this soul but the devil hid it

the water gets deep, the water get deeps
the water gets deep (rpt)

I will fix you bit by bit
I'd give you back this soul but he never took it
Track Name: Majesty
Oh no when will you get older
don't go crying like a child
cos they're just little tears on a shoulder
when my majesty calls for me I answer

Did I did I disappoint you
have I every done you you wrong
could I ever have been better
when my majesty called for me I answered

When I stopped dreaming all my dreams came true
But there's still no good in all the good I do
Don't pin me to this weight you bare
I'll pull the nails out slow and carry on without you there

Oh no I will never speak again
I know you were never ever listening
no I won't say another word
But when my majesty called for me I answered

When I stopped dreaming all my dreams came true
But there's still no good in all the good I do
Don't pin me to this weight you bare
I'll pull the nails out slow and carry on without you there

When I stopped dreaming all my dreams came true
(Oh my majesty what have I done to you)
But there's still no good in all the good I do
(well you cut me deep and you cut me through)
Don't pin me to this weight you bare
(oh my majesty you have been unfair)
I'll pull the nails out slow and carry on without you there
Track Name: Down
To tell the truth, it never meant that much to me
so it's hard to say i'm sorry when i'm not
and I never heard, never heard you leaving
I only looked to see the door was shut

well I cross my heart and hope to die I never ever told a lie

My long brown hair, I cut it all off
when I realised my luck was all gone
my empty bed, is getting so cold
cos I don't have no love to keep it warm

well I cross my heart and hope to die I only ever told one lie

So I will go where the wind don't blow
so there's nothing to carry me home
and you will stay where the breeze will sway
our cradle until you fall down

Oh tell the truth, I never meant that much to you
it must be hard to say you love me when you don't
I bet you knew, knew that I was leaving
I bet you checked to see the door was shut

Well I cross my heart and hope to die all I ever told were lies

So I will go where the wind don't blow
so there's nothing to carry me home
and you will stay where the breeze will sway
your cradle until you fall down

You always said, it's you and me
but the lover and the liar makes three

well I cross my heart and hope to die I never meant to tell you lies

So I will go where the wind don't blow
so there's nothing to carry me home
and you will stay where the breeze will sway
your cradle until you fall down
Track Name: Lone
I was standing in my empty room
when I saw your eyes through the morning gloom
I was not frightened no I was not scared
I've got nothing to fear by loneliness

I was lying in my empty bed
when I saw your face as I turned my head
I closed my eyes but there is not sleep
not for you or me or this loneliness.

No I don't want your reasons, I don't wanna know
why you held me so close then you had to go
I guess that you'r the monster that clings my hear so tight
no I don't wanna hold you close in the nigh time

I was walking down my empty hall
when I heard your voice yes I heard you call
I will not answer no I will not bend
not to your sad voice or this loneliness

No I don't want your reasons, I don't wanna know
why you held me so close then you had to go
I guess that you'r the monster that clings my hear so tight
no I don't wanna hold you close in the night time
Track Name: Nobody Believes
There's a light on in the kitchen my love are you home
I swear that i've come here alone

I heard you in the bedroom whispering low
and I knew I shoulda turned and gone
Nobody believes I could have ever have done what I did

I tried to remember the reason I came,
thought I knew just what I would say oh
but my words escaped me

Oh no I saw the door handle turn
and my fingertips started to burn
oh love just erase me
Nobody knew I could do what I'd done til I did

But your touch, the look on your face
Oh I loved you so much
Your pain and all my disgrace
Did I love you too much

You stood there and suddenly all of me turned
Well I'd come here to show that I'd learned
Oh but I have learnt nothing

Don't yell at me I already know I'm to blame
Lord i've been losing my mind every day
stop don't say a thing
nobody believes in somebody who's already dead

But your touch, the look on your face
Oh I loved you so much
Your pain and all my disgrace
Did I love you too much

There's a light on in the kitchen but my love is gone
I didn't think that I'd leave here alone
I've tried and I've tried but nothing can change what I've done
no nothing can change what I've done
Now I've got nobody and nobody believes what I did

But your touch, the look on your face
Oh I loved you so much
Your pain and all my disgrace
Did I love you enough
