I've Remembered

As the battle raged on all her trust was gone
What was left in this world of, in this life of confusion?
Too many answers, too many lies. Why? Why? Too many answers

I've remembered who I am, I remember
Tainted thoughts I left behind
Open heart & open mind
I've remembered who I am, I remember
Armed with hope & dice to throw
I've a long way to go

Had enough of the joke, one morning she woke
Saw the mirror, didn't know those eyes, didn't recognise who's talking
Where did the time go, where was she now? Lost, lost. Where did the time go?

I've remembered who I am, I remember
Strong & sure I watch the sky
Wipe the dirt from my fresh eyes
I've remembered who I am, I remember
No-one can tell me what to do
Trust my instinct over you

Distance hides her face from her own disgrace
Ashamed they'd see dreams unfulfilled, her spirit killed by nightmares
How did it happen? How did she fall down, down? How did it happen?

I've remembered who I am, I remember
From the nightmare I'm awake
I'm too strong for you to break
I've remembered who I am, I remember
No need to take, only to give
Now I'm ready to live

Emerald Tears

Emerald tears, so beautiful & clear
Emerald tears, wash away my fears
Emerald tears, so beautiful & clear
Flow away, flow away, emerald tears

In darkness I plant seeds
Flickering flame of need
Yearning, burning, oh
Yearning, burning, oh
I cry, I cry, I cry emerald tears

How strongly the sun gleams
I'm floating in misty dreams
Dreaming, screaming, oh
Dreaming, screaming, oh
I cry, I cry, I cry emerald tears

Melting echoes, echoes

Cathartically soothes my heart
Fresh energy to restart
Cleansing, mending, oh
Cleansing, mending, oh
I cry, I cry, I cry

Emerald tears, so beautiful & clear
Emerald tears, wash away my fears
Emerald tears, so beautiful & clear
Flow away, flow away, emerald tears

And I See

So tired, so tired
Air's thick, hangs on my shoulders
Drag forward, no rush to where I don't want to go
So tired, so tired
Air is slowly getting colder
Drag down, no way to where I want to go

And I see a gap between the grey
And I feel a strong wave of heat
And I know I've found my way

Confused, confused
Black & white drained the colour
Thin morning light feels like I never slept at all
Confused, confused
Joyful memories grow duller
Takes more & more to feel I'm living at all

Slow down, slow down
My heart's racing but I'm not moving
Through windows I see someone standing at the gate
Slow down, slow down
Things are changing but I'm not choosing
Time won't wait for me to decide my fate

And I see, and I see, and I see …

Mask

Hush, I've a lifetime of secrets soaked in my skin
Shielded from the outside
Dare you, dare you enter in?
Hush, I've been waiting for you. Whisper in the trees
Tied by apprehension. Break it, break it, unchain me

Lift the mask away from me, save me
Lift the mask away from me, save me
A world you've never been
Through these eyes you've never seen
Lift the mask away

Breathe like the crashing water. Meander to the pool
Hunt forgotten treasure. Find it, find it, precious jewel
Breathe in the scent of knowledge. Listen for the sound
Give in to temptation. Taste it, taste it, drink it down

Window

It's raining now, it's raining on my window
Am I dreaming now?
Can you see me through the window?
Window, window

It's raining now, I
It's raining now, it's raining now, it's raining
It's raining now, it's raining now, it's raining, it's raining …

And the lights in the windows and the dark second face
And the glass in the lights and my face in the dark
And the window, and the window, and the window,
And the window, and the window, and the window

Treading Water

I'm treading water, nowhere to go but down
I'm drifting on the ocean. My body's nowhere to be found
I'm treading water, nowhere to go but down
Doing something & nothing with one foot off the ground

I feel so, so alone. Am I here or not?
I feel silent like I'll never be heard, in a place that time forgot
Can you hear me, are you listening? Can't go on like this any more
I'm not changing, just drifting away. With every tide I'm sinking more & more

You drain me of wasted energy. I can't fight the drag
I can't see the light through my stinging eyes. There's nothing left to grab
It's like I'm, I'm waiting for a bomb to go off in my head
Or waiting for the final sunset. Waiting for the light to stop being red
You've got to stop messing with my head
Let me go, no, no

I'm treading water. I'm being drawn to the moon
I'm treading water. Reach out your hand soon

Shattered Pieces

I keep on waking up in someone else's life
I keep on breaking up. Shattered pieces
Keep on waking up in someone else's life
I keep on waking up, keep on waking up

Tomorrow never came
Filled with shame
Did what I always do
Still nothing new
Forgot about my pain
Still drowning in the rain

So long, so many years
Oceans of tears
Another empty vow
Feels normal now
Strike me across my face
Take me far from this place

Disdain looked down on them
I was the gem
Unerring from my mission
No indecision
I stood in full control
But pressure takes its toll

Oh fragile ball of glass
When will this pass?
Lay down to sweet dreams of hope
Bring strength to cope
Tell me what's going wrong
I sing my silent song

Enough

I'm sick of trying, sick of crying, sick of always going nowhere
I'm sick of choosing, sick of losing, sick of forgetting that I've been there

So where did everyone go?
Stood like a fool at the end of the rainbow
Worked harder than I should
Wish I'd taken all I could & so

Enough, enough, I've had enough, I want to go
Can't take the pain any more, no
Got to let my mind go higher
Oh, oh, oh, oh

I'm sick of taking, sick of faking, sick of being a needy user
I'm sick of drowning, sick of frowning, sick of being such a loser

Oh, oh, oh

I'm sick of giving, sick of living, sick of everything around me
I'm sick of hoping, sick of coping, sick of the shit that surrounds me

I've had enough, enough, I've had enough! I want to go
No pain any more, no
Got to let my mind go higher
I've had enough

Where did everyone go? Oh
Where did everyone go? Oh
Where did everyone go? Oh, oh, oh

Blown Away

I can only begin to imagine what you've been through
Empathy has its limits, I can never be you
Help us to understand, tell your story
In bitter tales there can be no glory

Opinions can be re-arranged by a sentence that taunts
Your beliefs blown away, blown away, blown away by an image that haunts

We all carry our past in a deep, deep hidden pocket
Bad experiences sealed tightly in a locket
Pages pencilled in first, colour added
By the best days or black hard scratches

Maybe we're all machines that malfunction, maybe sometimes
Could it be short circuits rising up through crime?
There must be good reasons for everything
Well, that's the hope to which we all cling

Synchronised

Can you hear me on the other side of the world?
Something's coming, can't be explained
You can breathe it
Anticipation trickles teasingly down my spine
Tune into the frequency of light
Can you feel it?

Touch me, sense me, we're synchronised
Feel me, search me, we're synchronised, synchronise
(Synchronise)

It's so easy to forget what you cannot see
It's all out there, you just have to look
But do you want to?
Sympathetic feelings come & go, they don't last
Doesn't matter, it's not my life
'Til it's right here
