Lyrics

‘Beyond Words’ – single

VERSE 1
CANNOT SAY, CANNOT DESCRIBE
TOO MANY WORDS TO SET DOWN IN A LINE
NOT ENOUGH POETRY TO PORTRAY
THE BALANCE OF LIFE BEYOND WORDS

CHORUS
AND I’VE GLIMPSED IT IN YOU, SEEN IT IN YOU
WHEN YOU SMILE
YOUR OUTLINE APPEARS, MADE OF MOMENTS IN YEARS
BEYOND WORDS

VERSE 2
CANNOT HOLD THIS LIGHT FOR LONG
TIME IS HERE, TIME IS GONE
AS OUR FEET TOUCH DOWN
THE BALANCE OF LIFE BEYOND WORDS

CHORUS
AND I’VE GLIMPSED IT IN YOU, SEEN IT IN YOU
WHEN YOU SMILE
YOUR OUTLINE APPEARS, MADE OF MOMENTS IN YEARS
BEYOND WORDS

AND I’VE GLIMPSED IT IN YOU, SEEN IT IN YOU
WHEN YOU SMILE
A VISION MADE REAL, IN LOVE THAT WE FEEL
BEYOND WORDS

ALL OF THE TIME, WOVEN IN RHYME
BEYOND WORDS

YOUR OUTLINE APPEARS … MOMENTS IN YEARS
BEYOND WORDS

‘Nothing Could Grow There’ – single

VERSE 1
WE ARE ARGUING
HOW ARE WE GOING TO FEED US NOW
HOW ARE WE GOING TO PUT FOOD ON THE TABLE
WE ARE ARGUING
CHILDREN UPSTAIRS PLAYING LOUD
WE NEVER BELIEVED THAT WE WOULD FAIL THEM

CHORUS
AND NOW WE’RE OUT THERE TOO
IN THE SHADOWS, IN THE DISTANT VIEW
I TRIED TO PLANT FOR YOU
BUT NOTHING WOULD GROW THERE
NOTHING COULD GROW THERE

VERSE 2
WE ARE ARGUING
BORROWED ALL THE BANK WOULD LEND
LIVING IN THE LAND OF THE MAKE BELIEVE FREE
BUT THE FREEDOM WE HAD
WASN’T WHAT OUR LOVE COULD BEAR
HATE AND LOVE JUST KICKED IN OUR DOOR

CHORUS
AND NOW WE’RE OUT THERE TOO
IN THE SHADOWS, IN THE DISTANT VIEW
I TRIED TO PLANT FOR YOU
BUT NOTHING WOULD GROW THERE
NOTHING COULD GROW THERE

INSTRUMENTAL

CHORUS
AND NOW WE’RE OUT THERE TOO
IN THE SHADOWS, IN THE DISTANT VIEW
I TRIED TO PLANT FOR YOU
BUT NOTHING WOULD GROW THERE
NOTHING COULD GROW THERE

VERSE 3
WE ARE ARGUING
HOW ARE WE GOING TO FEED US NOW
HOW ARE WE GOING TO PUT FOOD ON THE TABLE
WE ARE ARGUING
CHILDREN UPSTAIRS PLAYING LOUD
WE NEVER BELIEVED THAT WE WOULD FAIL THEM

THE VALLEY

VERSE 1
THIS IS IT, YOU SAID TO ME, NEED TO LET OUR DREAMS BE FREE
WALKING THROUGH THE VALLEY, WALKING THROUGH THE VALLEY
IN THE END, WE KNOW OURSELVES, WE CAN BE HEAVEN OR HELL
WALKING THROUGH THE VALLEY, WALKING THROUGH THE VALLEY
PUT OUR BEST WISHES INSIDE, WATCH THAT BALLOON FLOAT UP AND GLIDE
WHERE WE WILL EXIST, FOREVER SAVED FROM THE ABYSS
WALKING THROUGH THE VALLEY, WALKING THROUGH THE VALLEY

CHORUS
FLOAT AWAY WITH YOU
ABOVE THIS PLACE, SO HEARTLESS AND CRUEL
I WANT TO HOLD YOU, I WANT TO HOLD YOU
VERSE 2
TAKE A DEEP BREATH, WE MIGHT FIND, A NEW WAY TO STAY ALIVE
WALKING THROUGH THE VALLEY, WALKING THROUGH THE VALLEY
IN THE END, WE KNOW SO WELL, WE CAN BE HEAVEN OR HELL
WALKING THROUGH THE VALLEY, WALKING THROUGH THE VALLEY
PUT OUR BEST WISHES INSIDE, WATCH THAT BALLOON FLOAT UP AND GLIDE
WITH ALL OUR HOPES IMMORTALISED
WALKING THROUGH THE VALLEY, WALKING THROUGH THE VALLEY
CHORUS
FLOAT AWAY WITH YOU
ABOVE THIS PLACE, SO HEARTLESS AND CRUEL
I WANT TO HOLD YOU, I WANT TO HOLD YOU
VERSE 3 – INSTRUMENTAL

BUTTERFLY

VERSE 1
SAW A BUTTERFLY TOUCH A BUDDLEIA
HELD OUR BREATH AND DIDN’T STIR
A TEAR ROLLED DOWN YOUR CHEEK BUT WE
DIDN’T DARE TO BLINK
IN CASE IT FLEW AWAY

CHORUS 1
AS THE SUN BURNT RED ACROSS THE SKY
I LIFTED YOU UP ON MY SHOULDERS HIGH
OAK AND ASH AND ELM AND FIR
CRYSTAL CLEAR JUST WHO WE WERE

VERSE 2
I REMEMBER CLIMBING TREES
YOU COULD TASTE THAT WOODLAND BREEZE
THE ENERGY RAN FREE
IT LEAPT RIGHT OUT OF ME
IN TO MY WORLD

CHORUS 2
AS THE SUN BURNT RED ACROSS THE SKY
SIMPLY BEING FORGOT THE TIME
ANCIENT FACES IN THE TREES
MAKING SO MUCH SENSE OUT OF YOU AND ME

VERSE 3
BREATH HUNG LIKE CLOUDS IN THE AIR
SURROUNDING BUTTERFLY STILL SITTING THERE
TEARS FELL ON THE GROUND
BUT WE DIDN’T MAKE A SOUND
IN CASE IT FLEW AWAY
(IN CASE IT ALL) FLEW AWAY (repeats)

SONGBIRDS

VERSE 1
DON’T RUSH IT ALL AWAY
EASY ENOUGH TO SAY
CHASE YOUR TAIL ‘TIL LIFE’S ALL RUN DRY
DON’T RUSH IT ALL AWAY

BREAKING THE BACK OF YOU
BOUNCING YOU OFF OF THEIR WALLS
BATTERED AND BRUISED
YOU’RE NOT MAKING THE NEWS
BUT THERE’S BACKING FOR THE BET THAT YOU’LL FALL DOWN

THE MOMENT YOU BREATHE IN
THE MOMENT YOU BREATHE OUT

IN THE DARKNESS

VERSE 1
ARE WE OUT OF DANGER YET, WE PRAY?
HAVE OUR MONSTERS LEFT AND GONE AWAY?
ACROSS THE NIGHT SKY, WAKING UP OUR DREAMS
VOICES SINGING IN THE DARK

CHORUS 1
WHERE DO OUR LIVES GO?
MOVING FAST AND SLOW
SPEED OF LIGHT BROUGHT US HERE
SPEED OF LIGHT DISAPPEARS
INTO THE VOID
(BUT) I CAN HEAR YOU IN THE DARKNESS
HEAR YOU IN THE DARKNESS

VERSE 2
WANT TO LIVE THAT TIME AGAIN
FIRE ROSE TOO QUICKLY AND CONSUMED THE MOMENT WHEN
UNDERNEATH THE NIGHT SKY, CAME A SOUND
VOICES SINGING IN THE DARK

CHORUS 2
WHERE DO OUR LIVES GO?
DUST SPARKLES, EBBS AND FLOWS
SPEED OF LIGHT BROUGHT US HERE
SPEED OF LIGHT DISAPPEARS
INTO THE VOID
(BUT) I CAN HEAR YOU IN THE DARKNESS
HEAR YOU IN THE DARKNESS

CHORUS 3
WHERE DO OUR LIVES GO?
MOVING FAST AND SLOW
SPEED OF LIGHT BROUGHT US HERE
SPEED OF LIGHT DISAPPEARS
INTO THE VOID

LOSING CLARITY
INVISIBLE TO REALITY

CHORUS
YOU KNOW IT’S HARD TO LIVE IT
WHEN EVERYTHING’S ALL SO GREY
YOU SHOW THE COLOURS IN IT
COLOURING IN OUR DAYS
VERSE 2
COLOUR, PICK ME OUT AGAIN
VIVID DETAIL, WAY BACK WHEN

MAKE THOSE COLOURS GLOW SOME MORE
REFELCTED IN A PICTURE WITH YOU
LIFE IN COLOUR, BLEEDING THROUGH
GREEN SHOOTS, THE WAY WE WERE
COLOURS, COLOURS, COLOURS SWIRLED

SEARCHLIGHT

DON’T KNOW WHERE I LOST IT OR WHERE IT’S GONE
I HAD IT CLOSE BY ME WHEN I LEFT HOME
BUT THAT WAS MANY, MANY, MANY YEARS AGO
AND NOW THE COLD HAS CREPT INTO MY BONES
MY SKIN HAS TURNED ICY, MORTIFIED
EASY TO CATASTROPHISE
COLOURS ARE BLEACHED OUT AND FADED GONE
LEFT SPINNING OUT ON THE EDGE ALL ALONE
OUT ON THE EDGE, LEFT SPINNING…

CHORUS
GOT A SEARCHLIGHT FOR MY SOUL, SEARCHLIGHT FOR MY SOUL
DON’T KNOW WHERE I LOST IT OR WHERE TO GO
(GOT A) SEARCHLIGHT FOR MY SOUL
VERSE 1
WENT TO THE CORNER SHOP AND AFTER A WHILE
FOUND ME A SEARCHLIGHT THAT SHONE FOR A MILE
COST ME QUITE DEARLY, AN ARM AND A LEG
CHANCE TO FIND MY SOUL BEAT REMAINING DEAD
CHORUS
VERSE 2
NEIGHBOUR SAW ME SEARCHING LATE AT NIGHT
SAID WHAT YOU LOOKING FOR? YOU GAVE ME QUITE A FRIGHT
WHEN I COULD GET THE WORDS OUT I WAS LOOKING FOR MY SOUL
SAID THEY’D LOST THEIRS A LONG TIME AGO

MID 8
CHORUS (X2), INSTRUMENTAL VERSE

I MIGHT FIND IT YOU NEVER KNOW
RETRACE MY STEPS NOT THE WAY TO GO
PUT ONE FOOT IN FRONT OF THE OTHER
MY SOUL TO RECOVER, MY SOUL TO RECOVER

HUMAN TOO

(aka SHOPPING TROLLEY WHEELS)
VERSE 1
TROLLEY CRASHED IN TO ME, AND I FELT A PAIN EXPLODE
DIDN’T SEE YOU COMING, TOTALLY UNKNOWN
JUST ANOTHER HUMAN SOUL, GOING TO SHOOT OR SAY HELLO
AND PASS ON BY
VERSE 2
DIFFERENCE HERE WAS SIMPLE, COMPLICATED TOO
SHOPPING TROLLEY WHEELS, HAD LOCKED ME AND YOU
AND WE STRUGGLED TO DECIPHER, WHAT COULD BE SAID ON THIS
TO PASS ON BY
MID 8 (A)
BUT WE COULDN’T STEP FORWARD, WE COULDN’T STEP BACK
NEXT TO US, LINED UP, OTHER SHOPPERS HAD BEEN STACKED
COLD TRUTH STARTED FORMING IN A FUNDAMENTAL WAY
WE REALISED WE HAD TO TALK SO WE COULD FIND A WAY TO SET US
CHORUS
FREE, I’M A HUMAN TOO, IN A BODY NEXT TO YOU (X2)
MID 8 (B)
DID WE LEAVE OUR TROLLEYS STANDING IN AN ISOLATED WAY
ABANDONED BY THE LACK OF FAITH WE HAD TO SAVE THE DAY
DID WE JUST UNLOAD THEM AND BEGIN IT ALL AGAIN
DIDN’T ESTIMATE THE COST, JUST WANTED THE PAIN TO END AND SET US
CHORUS
FREE, I’M A HUMAN TOO, IN A BODY NEXT TO YOU (X1)
PRE- INSTRUMENTAL
I AM HUMAN, FEEL MY HEART BEAT (X2)
INSTRUMENTAL
MID 8 (B) REPEAT
CHORUS
FREE, I’M A HUMAN TOO, IN A BODY NEXT TO YOU (X1)
I’M A HUMAN TOO, IN A BODY NEXT TO YOU

SHOOTING STAR

VERSE 1
SHOOTING STAR HIT THE SEA
WHEN ANNIE HEARD THE VOICE THAT SAID HE LOVED HER
A MILLION HEARTS ROSE TO SEE
LOVE’S HUSHED FIRST KISS FOR ANNIE
THE CURTAIN CALL WAS OVER, PERFORMANCE ALL LAID BARE
ANNIE STOOD UP SMILING, HER SPIRIT STANDING THERE
THE LIGHTS OF LOVE AND LAUGHTER, ALL CAME RUSHING BACK
THE LIGHTS OF LOVE AND LAUGHTER, ALL CAME RUSHING…
CHORUS
ANNIE KEEP THE COLD OUTSIDE
AND WARM OUR HEARTS SO LOVE WON’T DIE
KEEP YOUR HEAD SO YOU KNOW BEST
WHAT LOVE CAN DO
WHAT LOVE CAN DO
VERSE 2
FEAR BOUNCED OFF THE MOON
WHEN ANNIE FELL A HUNDRED FEET FROM THE HIGH WIRE
THE TEARS OF THE LOVE-STRUCK FILLED THE ROOM
SEEING ANNIE CAUGHT THROUGH FIRE
EACH GASP LET OUT DISASTER,
EACH SCREAM EXPOSED DESPAIR
EACH FALLING MOMENT THEREAFTER FILLED THE LIVING AIR
ARMS REACHED OUT TO CATCH HER, ‘COS LOVE WILL NEVER END
HOPE FOREVER AFTER GOT TO ANNIE…
CHORUS
OUTRO
SHOOTING STAR HIT THE SEA
WHEN ANNIE HEARD THE VOICE THAT SAID HE LOVED HER
AND THE LIGHTS OF LOVE AND LAUGHTER,

DAY BECAME YOU

INTRO
HOT COALS WERE IN YOUR EYES, BURNING OUT ALL GOODBYES
AND THE DAY BECAME YOU
VERSE 1
SPIN AROUND ONE MORE TIME, YOU CAUGHT THE LIGHT FROM THE FIRE
TOOK THE FLAME AWAY WITH YOU, MADE THE TRUTH BE YOU
HOT COALS WERE IN YOUR EYES, BURNING OUT ALL GOODBYES
AND MY DAY BECAME YOU.
AND THOSE MEALY WORDS, THE ONES WE THOUGHT WE BARELY HEARD
THE HIDDEN THREATS AND OPEN SORES, WOUNDS WE STRUGGLE TO IGNORE.
I SAT DOWN, COULDN’T THINK, TURNED TO YOU AND SAW YOU BLINK
AND MY DAY BECAME YOU.

CHORUS
YOU MOUTHED SOME WORDS, I COULDN’T HEAR
YOU MOUTHED SOME MORE, I COULDN’T HEAR
YOU TOOK MY HAND, I COULDN’T FEEL
THERE WAS A DEATH ABOUT ME STILL.
YOUR EYES SAID SOMETHING TO MY HEAD
BREATHE IN, BREATHE OUT, BREATHE IN YOU SAID
I REACHED UP AND CAUGHT YOUR HAND
AND MY DAY BECAME YOU, (THE) DAY BECAME YOU
VERSE 2
SURROUNDED BY THE TAKE, TAKE, TAKE
DIDN’T UNDERSTAND, THAT’S MY MISTAKE
SHOULD HAVE FORESEEN THE ENSUING DISASTER, MY LEG IN PLASTER
SAW THE SUNLIGHT CATCH YOUR HAIR, AS I WAS FALLING DOWN THE STAIRS, AND MY DAY BECAME YOU.
(AND) THE UNDERCURRENT DRAGGED, IT PUSHED FORWARD, I PUSHED BACK
AND ALL THOSE HATEFUL THINGS, BEGAN TO GATHER IN A RING
JUST FOR A MOMENT I THOUGHT I SAW, YOU AND ME WALK THROUGH A DOOR, AND THE DAY BECAME YOU
CHORUS
INSTRUMENTAL VERSE, CHORUS

GRAVITY INSIDE

VERSE 1
THERE’S A GRAVITY INSIDE, PULL ME UP DON’T LET IT SLIDE
LET THE ASTRONAUT IN VIEW, BE ON A MISSION TO SEE IT THROUGH

FIND ME SOME SPACE, FIND ME SOME TIME
FIND ME SOME SPACE, FIND ME SOME TIME
AS EVERY SINGLE ORBIT GOES, OUTER SPACE CAN TAKE ITS TOLL

SHARING THIS SPACE, KNOWING YOU’RE NEAR

DOUBLE RAINBOW

VERSE 1
PUDDLE ON THE PAVEMENT
RAINBOW IN THE OIL AND PARAFFIN.
DROPS OF RAIN WERE FALLING
SUN IGNITING LIGHT WAVES, WE COULDN’T SEE.
KNEES AND HANDS ALL MUDDY
JOHN PUSHED MIKEY OVER, FIGHT BEGINS.
HIGH ABOVE, CATHEDRAL-LIKE
THE BIGGEST DOUBLE RAINBOW THAT’S EVER BEEN.

AND WE RAN AND WE RAN
TO THE TREASURE AT THE END
OF THE RAINBOW
WE WERE SURE TO HOLD

INSTRUMENTAL VERSE 8 BARS
VERSE 2
OUT OF BREATH AND REELING
DIZZY FROM THE LACK OF OXYGEN.
SHARING OUT THE WATER UNDER
REDS, ORANGE-YELLOWS, GREENS AND BLUES.
RAINBOW CAST ITS LIGHT
ACROSS OUR LONG AND FRIGHTENED DISTANT STARES.
BAG THAT RAINBOW
BRING IT HOME TO WARM THE COLDNESS THERE.
CHORUS X2

FEELING EMPTY IN YOURSELF, FRIGHTENED AND SHAKING
LOST AND FORSAKEN
CHORUS
UNDER THE BED OR BEHIND THE CURTAIN
NOTHING’S GOING TO DRAG YOU DOWN TO UNCERTAIN

LIVE YOUR LIFE, LIVE YOUR TIME
COUNT ON ME YOU’RE DOING FINE
LIFT YOUR CHIN UP AND YOU SAY YOUR NAME
VERSE 2
MAY YOU FIND LOVE AND NOT THE TEARS

CRUEL AND UNKIND.

PUSH THOSE DOORS OPEN WIDE
RUSH ME TO THE OTHER SIDE
I AM DONE HERE, FOREVER MORE

THESE HIGH HOPES THINK LOVE CAN STAY

VERSE 3
TOOK MY SADNESS TO THE WATER’S EDGE
WHERE ALL GOOD THINGS BEGIN AND END

TOGETHER

VERSE 1
WHEN ALL IS TAKEN
ROOF OVER HEAD, AND WE ARE SHAKEN

WHEN ALL’S DIVISION
CONQUERED SOULS, LEFT WITH NOTHING
LEFT WITH NOTHING
BUT EMPTY HOLES FOR LIVES.
CHORUS X2
DON’T LIE DOWN AND GIVE IN, DON’T LIE DOWN AND GIVE IN
DON’T ROLL OVER, TOGETHER WE SURVIVE

THE DICE CAN CUT YOU OPEN
SPIT IN YOUR FACE AND LEAVE YOU CHOKING

THERE’S NO SHAME IN SAYING
TOGETHER WE SURVIVE.

THERE’S NO SHAME IN SAYING
TOGETHER WE SURVIVE.
