1. SIDEKICK

 

How did I get here?

Where was it I was going?

Feels like I’ve been left here, even though I arrived alone.

See, the train wasn’t running and I tried to call, but no answer,

So I’m just stood here out on New Cross Road.

 

And oh, so this is the real world,

And oh, that’s not how it feels though, and oh...

 

You can be my sidekick.

See, I need a right-hand man or girl to fly with

And you can be Superman or Robin, I think,

And we can make all these plans...

 

I have it all laid out, every line that I’m throwing.

I pull them back to me and take whatever I’ve caught home.

 

And oh, so this is the real world,

And oh, that’s not how it feels though, and oh...

 

You can be my sidekick.

See, I need a right-hand man or girl to fly with

And you can be Superman or Robin, I think,

And we can make all these plans,

Oh, and you can ride the sidecar and I’ll take themotorbike

And we can ride far, as far as we like.

You’ll be my good half

And I’m always on your side and you’re on mine.

 

Where will we go this time? We have our whole damnlives.

Eyes to the sky and head first, legs last.

Oh, fools we can leave behind as long as you’re by my side.

I couldn’t ride this out all on my own,

All on my own.

 

You can be my sidekick.

See, I need a right-hand man or girl to fly with

And you can be Superman or Robin, I think

And we can make all these plans,

Oh, and you can ride the sidecar and I’ll take the motorbike

And we can ride far, as far as we like.

You’ll be my good half

And I’m always on your side and you’re on mine.

 

2. GO

 

In the morning, when my eyes open

And the world unfolds up to take me down,

If you saw me, forewarned, forearmed,

Oh what harm could I cause all on my own?

 

I don't care what the captain says,

I'll take the wheel and we can speed away

to go, you know, I never know.

 

When you find me, we can slide away.

I drive fast on this road I'm taking.

Still analyzing how to find a way

Out the dream world my head's been making.

 

I don't care what the captain says,

I'll take the wheel and we can speed away

to go, you know, I never know.

 

We'll use the sun to guide us in.

We'll use the sun to guide us in.

Just guide us in.

 

I don't care what the captain says,

I'll take the wheel and we can speed away

to go, you know, I never know.

To go, you know, I never know.

 

3. WRENCH

Fear was staring face in windows, glassy eyes and grinning bones

that shook you cold behind the door.

And then there’s losing love and lacing loss with words that went untold

so secretly to smother me.

 

So wrench, wrench me loose and turn me.

Fool I feel, so fool I’ll be

but out of all the flaws I have, none of them matter now.

 

Dirty river, loud as hell, you’re caught and thrown too deep to fail,

to sink and stay, to fall away.

You sweat and toil to keep the pace, no roof of hands to shield your face

when clouds will form and rain will fall.

 

So wrench, wrench me loose and turn me.

Fool I feel, so fool I’ll be

but out of all the flaws I have, none of them matter now.

 

Wrench me loose and turn me.

Fool I feel, so fool I’ll be

but out of all the flaws I have, none of them matter now.

 

Bind and breathe.

Bind and breathe.

Bind and breathe.

Wrench, wrench me loose and turn me.

Fool I feel, so fool I’ll be

but out of all the flaws I have, none of them matter now.

 

4. THE ARCHIVES

You visit through the pictures but don’t open the door,

downstairs to the archives, forgotten by the floor.

 

But don’t lay your heart.

Don’t lay your heart.

 

And you may use your own words and you may choose them well,

but old forgotten voices, so young and fresh from hell,

they push through the dust and paper can’t relay,

so invest yourself in them now.

Invest, and you can stay.

 

Just don’t lay your heart.

Don’t lay your heart.

Don’t lay your heart.

Don’t lay your heart.

Please, don’t lay your heart.

Don’t lay your heart.

Don’t lay your heart.

Don’t, no don’t, no, don’t lay your heart.

 

Downstairs to the archives, hid and locked away,

voices in your ear now speak from far away

and they all tell of darkness and some will talk of fate,

but pen held at the ready, boy, the end is yours to say.

Pen held at the ready, boy,

the end is yours to say.

 

5. THE AUTHOR

Down the Southbank at the lowest tide,

he almost told me not to leave his side,

but he likes stories; life’s a book to read,

and I’m no ending; you can’t narrate me.

Oh, don’t turn the page because I don’t want to just fade away.

 

At rising tide he turned to set a scene

of soaring strings and glorious energy.

He talked of hindsight, he sang of hazel eyes

and in the dusk maybe I believed him that time,

but oh, close the cover and come back to dry land.

 

I know that when he goes the plotline goes

I’ll turn my back and go back to before.

Because I know that when he goes the plotline goes

I’ll turn my back and go back to before.

 

So don’t you shape me into beautiful

and don’t give me moments that I can’t ignore

and don’t remember, don’t keep me in mind,

because what you choose to keep will just leave me behind

and I’ll just clean the marks you made and oh my heart, I’ll just tidy away.

 

I know that when he goes the plotline goes

I’ll turn my back and go back to before.

Because I know that when he goes the plotline goes

I’ll turn my back and go back to before.

I will turn my back and go back to before.

I will turn my back.

 

6. THERE YOU ARE

 

Scattered leaves, the pavement somewhere underneath,

you cast a line and caught the words beneath my feet,

but oh, I won’t say it.

No, don’t reel me out then reel me in.

 

Coz’ when you’re near me, my mind starts to cloud together.

You’re here with me; my words try to tie together.

Believe me, I’m not the type to just give out my heart,

but there you are.

 

And all I had, I had to do was walk away,

but clown I am, I turned around and chose to stay

and oh, I won’t say it.

No, don’t play me out then bring me in.

 

Coz’ when you’re near me, my mind starts to cloud together.

You’re here with me; my words try to tie together.

Believe me, I’m not the type to just give out my heart,

but there you are, my mind starts to cloud together.

 

You’re here with me; my words try to tie together.

Believe me, I’m not the type to just give out my heart,

but there you are.

 

There you are, you’ve got my heart.

Don’t walk away now.

 

7. WE DON'T BELIEVE IN MONSTERS

A monster awakens and opens his eyes and sighs to the morning.

Well, where are the wolves I fear? No hunters drawing near;

I can’t hear them calling.

 

See, I, I used to shine like the sun.

Oh I, I used to shine like the sun.

 

Once they shivered and trembled and shook when I roared,

when I cut through stone and let the ground fall to the monster below.

See, I used to burn and now I just bleed.

With both arms outstretched, they’re imploring to me

and they see me falling.

 

But I, I used to shine like the sun.

Oh I, I used to shine like the sun.

 

Can’t we pretend that we don’t believe in monsters?

Can’t we pretend that we don’t believe?

 

Oh I, I used to shine like the sun.

See, I, I used to shine like the sun.

Oh I, I used to shine like sun.

See, I, I used to shine, shine like the sun.

 

 

8. SILENCE SCARES ME

Silence scares me.

Spotlight in a crowd.

And I’m fairly prone to blurt things out.

 

But never mind. You’re here now.

Never mind, just find the words and learn to sing them out.

 

Over-thinker, way over your head,

you sit and you shiver and just keep quiet instead.

 

But never mind. I’m here now.

Never mind, just find the words and learn to sing them out.

Never mind. You’re here now.

Never mind, just find the words and learn to sing them out.

 

Lost for words unspoken,

to wish the silence broken and find your voice.

Sick of feeling tongue-tied when you’re singing inside,

open wide and make a noise.

 

Well, never mind. I’m here now.

Never mind, just find the words and learn to sing them out.

Never mind, you’re here now.

Never mind, just find the words and learn to sing them out.

 

Just find the words and learn to sing them out.

 

Silence scares me.

 

9. UNSUNG

Easy live and quiet die, you say,

but your heart has never burned and bled,

never burned and bled.

 

Breathes there the man who kept his head,

but his feet have always turned and fled,

always turned and fled.

 

High and proud,

strong, you claim,

with vacant heart and unsung name.

High and proud,

strong, you claim,

With vacant heart and unsung name.

 

Easy live and quiet die, you say,

but your heart has never burned and bled,

never burned and bled.

 

10. SLEEPWALKER

Softly spoken, streetlight broken.

If only the light shined through when the curtain moved.

The dust still floats here, settles so near,

then rush as the wind breathes through and tangles all anew.

 

Steps on the stairs, we hear you,

Path in the dark you’ve worn through,

Brambles and wind-torn branches,

Worlds that you lost your heart in.

 

Sightless eyes still open wide with shadows to feel the way,

welcomed with arms raised,

so sink down, smoothing skin you’re losing

to wear once more when you wake to the blinding light of day.

 

Steps on the stairs, we hear you,

Path in the dark you’ve worn through,

Brambles and wind-torn branches,

Worlds that you lost your heart in.

 

Steps on the stairs, we hear you,

Path in the dark you’ve worn through,

Brambles and wind-torn branches,

Worlds that you lost your heart in.

 

11. FIND ME HERE

Stood upon the bridge over what was once a mighty river, he stands.

Blood and water move together, river singing, heart replying, softly sung.

 

Saying, ‘Find me here.’

Saying, ‘Find me here.’

 

On his hand, a scrawled message, ‘Don’t remember and don’t regret this and don’t fall.’

Here he gave his life to her. Here she smiled and swam down river, calling out.

 

Saying, ‘Find me here.’

Saying, ‘Find me here.’

 

I’ll, I’ll be waiting right here.

Oh I’ll, I’ll be waiting right here.

 

Oh saying, ‘Find me here.’

Saying, ‘Find me here.’

Oh saying, ‘Find me here.’

Saying, ‘Find me, oh find me here.’

 

Stood upon the bridge over what was once a mighty river, he stands.

 

12. MILLION OF FLOWERS

I see fields of green and mountains of yellow,

signs that catch the sun and bask in release.

There are prophecies we hear and learn to believe them,

but will this single rose turn into millions of flowers?

 

Today I am prey to feeling uncertain,

but now I’ll take my fill and leave it behind.

Tell me how you feel. No, tell my tomorrows.

But will this single rose turn into millions of flowers?

And will this single rose turn into millions of flowers?

 

Inside, though I may wilt and die, I will not in self-pity lie.

What I did, I’ve done again. If I can’t learn, I can’t pretend.

Love, I’ve studied way too long; I’ve turned the page. The end has gone,

but now I think I understand: I’ll turn my rose to millions of flowers.

 

I think of all those days of counting my blessings,

matching up the corners until it feels right,

and while I closed my eyes to all this devotion,

I didn’t have a rose.

I didn’t have a rose; I had millions of flowers.

 

13. FOLLOW

These shoes are old and worn now

I feel I’ve been walking all my life.

I’ve walked too many horizons,

too many valleys I have climbed.

 

But I’ll follow, I’ll follow you

I’m your shadow in every starry night,

and I’ll follow and echo every step.

I’ll follow you all my life.

 

The rain, it falls and surrounds me,

the wind, it can blow me far behind

but I’ll still be walking there beside you,

a silent shadow who sees it through your eyes.

 

And I’ll follow, I’ll follow you

I’m your shadow in every starry night,

and I’ll follow and echo every step.

I’ll follow.

 

And I’ll keep on running through this rain

and I’ll keep on following, all the same

because you are by my side,

you are by my side

and now my heart can see through your eyes.

 

And I’ll follow, I’ll follow you

I’m your shadow in every starry night,

and I’ll follow and echo every step.

I’ll follow you all my life.
