A.L.

Every day I long to know you
Underneath that mask you wear
Our casual conversations
Never get us anywhere
Sometimes when you walk right by me
I look away so you won’t know I care

And all I ever see of you
Is through a darkened hallway
And all I ever want to do
Is keep you from turning away
From me

Walking through that empty alley every night
I stop alone and wish you’d hold me tightly
Maybe it’s foolish that I never let you know
Just how much it hurts me every time you go

And all I ever see of you
Is through a darkened hallway
And all I ever want to do
Is keep you from turning away
From me

Wandering through an empty passage
I hear your footsteps echo in my mind
Visions of a past unheard of
Leave your shadows fading over time

And all I ever see of you
Is through a darkened hallway
And all I ever want to do
Is keep you from turning away
From me

Yes, all I ever wanted to do
Was keep you from turning away
From me
Track Name: The Rain
The Rain

The grey of the sky matches the grey of your eyes today
We gaze outside simply happy to just lie here, and keep the world at bay.

The whistle of the kettle on the stove
Brings the warm smell of nutmeg and cloves
Let’s get tangled up in blankets, not thoughts, not plans, not clothes

Take joy in the rain
Let the tears fall outside while we curl up and hide
There’s joy in the rain
Whatever’s happening out there, I’m gonna smile me silly here

It’s all the little things that pile up from week to week
When the pile gets high it can drive a little crazy – I need you to ground me

So let’s listen to the pitter patter of
Our worries washing away, one by one
Let’s take a day to live, to breathe, to laugh, to love

Take joy in the rain
Let the tears fall outside while we curl up and hide
There’s joy in the rain
Whatever’s happening out there, I’m gonna smile me silly here
Track Name: Dream On
Dream On

I take a walk across the ocean, I take a stroll across the sea
Just to find out what you’re thinking. Do you want to walk with me?

We can talk about the future, reminisce about the past
Remember enemies and friendships – make this the peace that lasts

Dream on with open eyes
Dream on with an open mind
Dream on, dream on
Paradise

Hold your hand out when you’re hungry. We’ve all got many mouths to feed.
If I’ve got anything that you need, you just come and ask me.

Dream on with open eyes
Dream on with an open mind
Dream on, dream on
Paradise

If everyone watches everyone else’s back we’re all free to move around.
And every wandering soul will find that everywhere is sacred ground.

Dream on with open eyes
Dream on with an open mind
Dream on, dream on
Paradise
Track Name: Unfinished Business
Unfinished Business

Empty left my hungry before.
Hollow, I know, there must be more

Come a little closer – we’ve got unfinished business
Save e from the fire _ I’ve got the sweetest sickness
Let the rivers flow under all our bridges

Fill me, wholly, like sand and sea
Plenty of debris surrounding me

Come a little closer – we’ve got unfinished business
Save e from the fire _ I’ve got the sweetest sickness
Let the rivers flow under all our bridges

Lay down your crown. There are no thorns here
They’re gone with the dawn and all our fear

Come a little closer – we’ve got unfinished business
Save e from the fire _ I’ve got the sweetest sickness
Let the rivers flow under all our bridges
Track Name: Nightmare
Nightmare

I know what you’re gonna see in the middle of the night,
the middle of the night.
Gonna get my paints out and color in your eyelids bright.
It’s gonna feel so real when I take over your midnight sight
It’s a bad dream’s daydream to decorate your sleep with fright.

Uh oh, oh uh oh – what will you see
When you close those eyes and dream?
Uh oh, oh uh oh – what will you see
When you close those eyes and dream?

A dash of goosebump blue and just a touch of dread in red.
Highlight it with spite and tint it with resentment.
First you’re falling, then you fail and then you’re left without a stitch.
It doesn’t need to make sense as long as I can scare you quick.


Uh oh, oh uh oh – what will you see
When you close those eyes and dream?
Uh oh, oh uh oh – what will you see
When you close those eyes and dream?

Can’t you see I’m trying to help? Taking your fears and letting them out.
Give me your hand.
(Together we can make fair weather, light as a feather)
