Track Name: At First Sight
The night began, I was alone.
Only had my wallet and my phone.
Opened the door to the bar,
That's where I saw her.

Her eyes alone blew me away.
I knew for sure I'd never felt this way.
She caught my eye and gave a smile,
So I stayed for a while.

I know that falling for you got us into this mess to begin with,
But admit it, you had fun while it lasted.
I know you're moving away and it almost killed me to hear it,
But I'll always be here if you want me...

She looked around, she needed to check,
And threw her arms around my neck.
She said a word or two to me,
And then she kissed me.
I looked in her eyes and I knew that
Now there was no turning back,
Coz if I did, she'd steal my heart
And I'd be without it when we had to part.

I know that falling for you got us into this mess to begin with,
But admit it, you had fun while it lasted.
I know you're moving away and it almost killed me to hear it,
But I'll always be here if you want me...

It's been a couple of days now
And all I have are memories and hope
that one day she might return.
If she decides to stay
A hundred miles away
Well I guess I'll sit here and watch as my heart burns.

I know that falling for you got us into this mess to begin with,
But admit it, you had fun while it lasted.
I know you're moving away and it almost killed me to hear it,
But I'll always be here if you want me, you want me, you want me, you want me, I know you want me.
Track Name: Purgatory
Oh what a waste.
I've been here before, I know this place.
It's where we come when we need to breathe;
Purgatory.
We've come so far.
Time is long lived here.
Within the space that lies between;
Purgatory.

So here we are, there's no escaping it.
So here we are, there's no denying it.
So here we are, there's no escaping it.
Purgatory.

No taking sides.
We'll fight for position for a place to hide,
as walls of flame devour me;
Purgatory.
The raging fire
portrays the image of my desire.
My skin is burning in the heat;
Purgatory.
Track Name: Home
Flowers so radiant and bright.
They pierce the black and white of this scene.
Love birds my fly overhead.
Such a beautiful song.
All shadows are banished here,
A world with no enmity or fear.
The saccharine sound of all that lives
beneath this twilight.

When you find the ones who never let you down,
Hold them close.
When you find the ones who make you feel safe,
You've found home.

There's children playing in the street,
With a football using jumpers as goals.
Not a worry as the sun goes down
On this fairytale.
Little butterfly, it glides in on the wind,
A herald of better times to come.
Little children growing up in a world
That will not fall for them.

When you find the ones who never let you down,
Hold them close.
When you find the ones who make you feel safe,
You've found home.
Track Name: Me and You (Electric Eyes)
All this sneaking around is getting me down.
I just want to be the one and only now.
You don't seem to see what you're doing to me, yeah yeah yeah yeah,
But when I fall in between, I'll always be the one that's on my knees.

But I wish we could have happened in a different way,
Where we met across a crowded room, electric eyes,
Then we float across the floor and dance like lovers do,
'coz in my mind there is only me and you, me and you.

You know exactly how to get to me, you've got me wrapped around your little finger.
I get the feeling that you've seen the person inside and seen the bigger picture.
You felt the scars that make up my life and didn't run away.
But now you're floating from my view like you're black and blue in the sunset.

But I wish we could have happened in a different way,
Where we met across a crowded room, electric eyes,
Then we float across the floor and dance like lovers do,
'coz in my mind there is only me and you, me and you.
Track Name: The River
You know you'll walk away from this
You know that the damage is done.
You know you won't return to this 'til you know the war is won.
You know the world is changing
and you know you no longer fit in
But the blood on your hands won't change the demands of the masses.

So wash yourself in the river
'til they become believers
Wash yourself in the river
'til they become believers.

You know they've heard your story
and they don't believe a word
They ban their children from going near you
on pretenses that they have heard.
You preach every day in the market
Though you differ, you breathe the same air
All you say seems so natural
But no-one seems to care.

So wash yourself in the river
'til they become believers
Wash yourself in the river
'til they become believers.

All you believe washed out to sea.
