Track Name: Everything to me
It would mean everything to me if we could take a holiday
Cos you and I bone tired every night isn't my idea of play
And even our smallest dream is getting lean, never sees the light of day
So it would mean everything to me

You can fight but you won't always win
Somehow life finds a way to beat you
But I'll come join you in the ring
Guess it shows just how much i need you

There are days I would pay anything just to leave it all behind
There are times I can't find any light to get me through the daily grind
I know you feel it too, seen just how long it takes you to unwind
So it would mean everything to me
Track Name: Ghosts & Demons
Ghosts and Demons in my hair
I tell them leave but they don't care
Twisted moon and circling sun
Wind wails, a storm has come
Knife cuts across the land
Mother Nature's heavy hand

And the world could crumble round me
I'm so lonely, I'm so lonely
Your clothes stay plastered to me
I'm so lonely, I'm so lonely

Night like this there will be no sleep
Sandman leaves me without a peep
My eyes are itching, my throat burns
Fever watches, awaits his turn
Ghosts and Demons fuss and fret
They'll be around for sometime yet

And I have reached the point of no return and that's a fact
I need a voice, a hand, a friend, something to pull me back
Track Name: We don't have much time
Baby we don't have much time
So say exactly what's been on your mind
We don't have much choice
So go ahead and use your voice
I've thought about it every day
Racked my brains to find another way

And despite how much I wish it
I won't belong to you
No-one in this world would ever vouch for us two
And tho I fight to feel it
It's a pleasure marred by pain
I'll long have left the gate before they ever board the plane

So go head and move your bishop
Cos your rook is on the floor
And the queen has lined the pawns up and they're marching out the door
And if only I knew the code then i would wind the wheels to stop
I'd give anything in the world for just a minute off this clock
Track Name: Shadows
I'm unsure if to believe it
Too many times it's knocked me out
I can't explain
Just a feeling
Catching me out

Out of the darkness I heard you calling
Calling aloud my name
Into the shadows I went running
Searching for where it came

It's not what they say
it's not what they do

Am I alone in thinking
That there is a written end
I'm trusting in this direction
When really i've no idea
