The screeching of the train As it stops beneath the rain The track is wet in the shadows Underneath half a moon AS it goes down to the ground The colours change behind the clouds And the stars they can’t come out Above the city lights It’s not like home It’s hotter here for the time of year And the people don’t talk the same as we do And it’s harder to be On your own when you’re not home And some things don’t taste the same Not like home And I miss the sound of silence And I miss the smell of trees And I miss the light of the fire And the taste of the tea And I miss the stars at night And I miss the sound of rain And I miss the barking from the dog And the smell of the meals And I miss the sound of silence And I miss the smell of trees And I miss the light of the fire And the taste of the tea And I miss the stars at night And I miss the sound of rain And I miss the barking from the dog And the smell of the meals I’m not at home anymore

I’m not afraid cos I know that we’ll be fine I’m okay to wait so I can be sure it’s alright We’ve been here a thousand and one times When we’re in the clear I’ll hold you and call you mine I don’t mind waiting but only for you I don’t mind waiting but only for you I called you away from the water away from the water’s edge I called you away from the water away from the water’s edge Take it on yourself to try and fix the truth It’s not written yet so there’s hope for just a few I’m plain sailing cos I’m scared of what I might do Circumstances stop me, well that’s just a nice excuse I called you away from the water away from the water’s edge I called you away from the water away from the water’s edge I watch you And I try to read between the lines I’m waiting for you yourself to find

Is getting older getting wiser or is it all a lie The more you think you know the world the more you want to cry I sometimes wish I didn’t know how to wake up And just sleep till there’s nothing more And drink from my own cup I’m done, I think that I’m through Maybe I just missed the boat I wasn’t there that day When they said to be happy You need A B C and D I don’t see it quite so simple and I don’t see it quite so fair Cos if I wasn’t breaking down I wouldn’t be anywhere I’m done, I think that I’m through Don’t care about this game we’re in It’s so far from my truth I’m done, I think that I’m through My dreams are all caving in And drowning with my youth Am I really growing up, or am I growing down? Like the story of the button man, in Fitzgeralds town I had it all clear back then Now I look and I’m trapped in my own skin I’m done, I think that I’m through Don’t care about this game we’re in It’s so far from my truth I’m done, I think that I’m through My dreams are all caving in And drowning with my youth

What is going through your head? What is underneath the bed? Run away and stop trying to hold it in Try to find my wonderland Tell me what took you so long Why couldn’t you wait till we were home? Can you tell me if I’m meant to be With a hole a rabbit and a tree I’m just locked up in myself While you’re free to free yourself Fake it till I fall asleep And pray to god that I don’t dream Tell me what took you so long Why couldn’t you wait till we were home? Can you tell me if I’m meant to be With a hole a rabbit and a tree And I try to run from myself How could I not see? There’s no dream waiting for me In the end there’s no fantasy Tell me what took you so long Why couldn’t you wait till we were home? Can you tell me if I’m meant to be With a hole a rabbit and a tree

Run as fast as you can Out of this broken head We won’t fight Find your chamber to breath Crawl up and down the walls We won’t fight We won’t fight The victims of bad luck They swarm through the crowd Asking forgiveness And living in doubt Leave it on the corner where the old people pray Every one last time that we had it out I felt like my voice was letting me down Walk on past the corner where the old people pray Green contrasting the grey I’m feeling my way I won’t fight And once every week I wake out of my sleep I won’t fight I won’t fight The victims of bad luck They swarm through the crowd Asking forgiveness And living in doubt Leave it on the corner where the old people pray Every one last time that we had it out I felt like my voice was letting me down Walk on past the corner where the old people pray The victims of bad luck They swarm through the crowd Asking forgiveness And living in doubt Leave it on the corner where the old people pray Every one last time that we had it out I felt like my voice was letting me down Walk on past the corner where the old people pray Walk on past the corner where the old people pray Walk on past the corner where the old people pray

Maybe we should just say our goodbyes Maybe we should just break all ties When you’re not here it’s too hard for me When even living makes it too hard to breath Are you happy, or are you numb? Are we lying to ourselves or is that all part of the fun? I don’t want to push you away But sometimes we’re just not ok We’re not ok we’re not ok You’ve left all the wolves behind Did you even notice the parts of me that died? Every little hurt gets multiplied by ten And every doubt hurts like hell It hurts like hell it hurts like hell It hurts when I make you cry It hurts when you make me die It hurts when I make you cry It hurts because with you I know love I don’t want to but maybe that’s love I don’t want to but maybe that’s love I don’t want to but maybe that’s love

I’m, I’m, waiting for the day that you’ll come alive I’m, I’m, waking up in doubt about all I left behind You see clearly now how we’re better off at home You see clearly now hoe we both cried For the day gone When we could have been anywhere but on our own And we could have seen where it all went so wrong Wait, Wait, just a little bit, longer for me To be, clear of what I said, when I still dreamt All of these words have slipped my mind And all of these promises waiting in line For the day gone When we could have been anywhere but on our own And we could have seen where it all went so wrong I don’t know where it all went so wrong What is the point?

I’m blowing out the fuse boy, cos I I’ve got nothing left to lose, boys And I care nothing for, the beautiful people, running round And around and around from dusk till dawn Just hoping to be seen, believe It’s, not, because we need And where do I go next? Where do I go? I’ve lost all confidence, For what I know And time and time again I try to stand but I only Get to my knees I need to find some space, so that I Can try to fix my ways, but it’s Just like the longest wait, And we both, know the feeling Of waking up and hating the thought Of facing towards the daily Wasting wait No we can’t stay And where do I go next? Where do I go? I’ve lost all confidence, For what I know And time and time again I try to stand but I only Get to my knees On my knees, I’m on my knees, On my knees, I’m on my knees, On my knees, I’m on my knees, On my knees And where do I go next? Where do I go? I’ve lost all confidence, For what I know And time and time again I try to stand but I only Get to my knees

It’s not like we can dream out way out of here I can’t force you to stay my dear How can we not know what we’ve got when we’ve got it? All my fears became real when you Uttered those little words It feels like I’m not here When you’re talking around my fears And what did I do but love you Love you too much It’s not like I can stop myself from dreaming Or find a place for healing Forgotten what it’s like To want to see you All my fears became real when I Tore my own world apart Tore my own world apart It feels like I’m not here When you’re talking around my fears And what did I do but love you Love you too much I don’t want to be afraid I don’t want to be afraid It feels like I’m not here When you’re talking around my fears And what did I do but love you Love you too much

The leather on my wrist For every year we kissed Even now they’re still there Broken We learned how to forget You taught me how to speak again All those things that made us love We failed I remember, the days Looking in your eyes I watched, the waves Turn to red and white Memories, they fade We were holding on so tight So tight But I’m not, I’m not running anymore Only a bears love Made me feel whole No one said that it would hurt so Every time you say those names That book was a gift That you left behind Filed with words for you From a bird I remember, the days Looking in your eyes I watched, the waves Turn to red and white Memories, they fade We were holding on so tight So tight But I’m not, I’m not running anymore
