Track Name: Let it Go
I turn away, from the cold light of day
Its too much for me to bare,
Shivering inside, there’s nothing else for me to do
I think its time to cry

So if you hear me - Let it go, No need to worry
It’ll surely pass I know, I know

Close my eyes - the blinds are down
Wish they could shut out the sounds - inside my brain
Count the time til evening comes and lays a blanket down over the sun,
The time to run

So if you see me - Let me go
No need to worry - This will surely pass I know, I know

It’s a shame that this affliction of mine,
Should appear at such unexpected times,
Could it maybe book a day or rescue me,
Or something that requires far less energy…

So if you see me come and go
No need to worry
It is bound to pass I know,

And if you hear me
Let me know
No need to worry
Always passes yes I know, I know…
Track Name: Light of Day
I’m lost and found eternally
Given to moments of clarity
Touch a nerve every now & then
Guess its only natural
Sent to challenge me

Goodness it’s a lot to carry –
And I’m so damned busy
Got a job to do – and I’ll see it through

As the years roll by - I feel like I’m gathering a part of me
hasn’t seen the light of day
As the years roll by - I feel like I’m gathering a part of me
hasn’t seen the light of day

So it goes – keep myself in check
Got road to burn, Got my courage back
Sooner or later, it’ll come to me
Born survivor – Naturally

Why oh why did I take so long - analysing my soul
Times it wasn’t right, Times it never is…
All I know is I’m getting on - with a view so solid and strong
My reality - for my sanity.

As the years roll by - I feel like I’m gathering a part of me
hasn’t seen the light of day
As the years roll by - I feel like I’m gathering a part of me
hasn’t seen the light of day
Track Name: Hey Debonair
You call it idle conversation
tilt your head to the side ever so little
And your eyes they find - what they don’t find in mine

I look away hoping to gain perspective
and in that time you gained some traction – you crossed that line…

You say – Anything goes
and my heart keeps telling me no
what can I say - to stop you from breaking me down

Hey Debonair your polish blinds me
hold-off your relentless toying,
now I know, can you see me yawning
You can’t catch me (cause) I won’t be falling

I wonder if this one will see right through you
never know and I don’t really want to
my eyes they find – that they don’t like your kind
Should have never listened to you
could have had anything that you wanted
oh no, you didn’t do that…

You say – Anything goes
and my heart keeps telling me no
what can I say - to stop you from breaking me down

Hey Debonair your polish blinds me
hold-off your relentless toying
now I know, can you see me yawning
You can’t catch me (cause) I won’t be falling

Hey Debonair
Track Name: Giftbox
Noticed the tide was on the turn
had a fast car and time to burn
before I turned from the ocean
A little something caught my eye
You wouldn’t understand it, should anyone really care
Was a Giftbox of oblivion, big enough to shatter any nightmare

And I’ve seen a few - I’ve lived some too
More than anything in the whole wide world I’ll carry on believing through

Thought I’d take a little gamble, take a stroll on the sand,
Cause you never know till you get there, abandon all my hopes and fears
You wouldn’t understand it - Should anyone really care
That giftbox of oblivion, big enough to shatter any nightmare...

And I’ve seen a few - I’ve lived some too
More than anything in the whole wide world I’ll carry on believing through

I’ve lost - my head, and I found my heart instead
But now - it’s too late, I drove a hundred miles & climbed aboard a leap of faith

I’ve seen a few - I’ve lived some too
More than anything in the whole wide world I’ll carry on believing through

Feel a little disconcerted, let it wash over me
My giftbox of oblivion, let me steal away from everything…
Track Name: Charade
You know the moment when you should look away…
You know you shouldn’t look you do anyway…

I guess it’s just a big charade - Sometimes you refuse to play

Relationships can fall apart
To stay afloat you drift afar
Through the up - down rounds that follow on
Take your time -feed your heart

I guess it’s just a big charade – c’mon now I need the space.
I guess it’s just a big charade – Why you got to hesitate?

So watch out – this ain’t no stroll in the park
Have no doubt – gonna carry on any way

If you’re wondering what to say
Chances are I feel the same
When the hours they turn from days to weeks
two step back – ease your pain


Guess it’s just a big charade - maybe we should celebrate
Guess it’s just a big charade – maybe we could walk away
