Sword 03:02
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

You 02:28
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

Water 04:00
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

Majesty 02:54
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

Down 03:39
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

Lone 03:16
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

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
