Safe From Harm lyrics

Bare My Soul

Stephen said why not write something

That’s not so deep and meaningful?

But the truth can be so,

Tragic and beautiful.

 

Blythe said she could never

Tell anyone just how she feels.

How will anyone know when,

She caves in and it all gets real?

 

I want to bare my soul -

In a way that no one can.

In the hope that

some of you might understand

How it feels

To be so alone.

To be so alone.

To be so alone.

 

Cassandra said she’d lost the plot

When she stopped the car to drop me off.

I watched her disappear

Her face reflected in the rear-view mirror.

 

Sophie woke me in the dead of night

To tell me how her dad had died.

I lie here in the dark but,

Now there’s nowhere left to hide.

 

I want to bare my soul

In a way that no one can.

In the hope that,

Some of you might understand

How it feels

To be so alone.

To be so alone.

To be so alone.

 

I want to bare my soul

In a way that no one can.

In the hope that,

Some of you might understand

How it feels

To be so alone.

To be so alone.

To be so alone.

Firelight

 

Soft, soft the firelight

On my mother's face

Reading by candlelight

Everything in its place.

Outside the willow tree

Weeping in the wind.

I'm a man more sinned against

Than sinning oh I swear.

 

You know that I'll love you

No matter what you do.

You know that I'll love you

No matter what you do.

 

When she walked her feet were bare

The wind played in her hair

And when I fell she carried me

She said son, I don't care.

She made me feel like I could do

Anything I wanted to.

I'm a man more sinned against

Than sinning oh I swear.

 

You know that I'll love you

No matter what you do.

You know that I'll love you

No matter what you do.

You know that I'll love you

No matter what you do.

You know that I'll love you

No matter what you do.

Vampire Town

 

I need a break from this vampire town

It sucks my blood and leaves me to drown

In a lover’s bed I might rest my head

But don’t go thinking I’ve left you for dead.

 

The wind blows around these tired feet

That push me always down a one way street

You know I love you all I need is time

What’s yours is yours and what’s mine is mine

 

And I know that we, will always be friends

And I know that we, will always be friends

And I know that we, will always be friends

And I know that we, will always be friends

 

I wrote you a letter there’s no need to reply

I’ll be the one who always swallows his pride.

I believe in destiny, I believe in fate

I believe it’s never going to be too late

 

And I know that we, will always be friends

And I know that we, will always be friends

And I know that we, will always be friends

And I know that we, will always be friends

Burroughs & Bukowski

Leave a light on for me
So I can find my way into your dreams.
When I look at you
I always catch you looking, back at me.

I know you’re afraid

And I know deep down you’ll, never leave.
What do you want from me?
I guess I'm just your little, fantasy.

 

I'm on my way back home

Burroughs and Bukowski

Time better spent alone

Burroughs and Bukowski

 

What did it really mean?

Was it just another dream within a dream?

We’ll shed another skin

Becoming something we have, never been.

You’re like a flower in bloom

As I watch you walk back, to your room.

Sew my shadow back on
And I’ll return wherever, I came from.

 

I'm on my way back home

Burroughs and Bukowski

Time better spent alone

Burroughs and Bukowski

Everything Will Work Out

As the dawn breaks, on the last day -

Of a long, long year,

My head aches, but the bedroom is bright and

I'm wide awake.

And you’re here -

And it's such a relief to finally

Have you near ...

But I almost hear you thinking,

I can almost hear you thinking,

About ... him.

And all that you'll leave behind,

Lies heavy on your mind -

Heavy on my mind …

 

But I've got this funny feeling everything will work out

I've got this funny feeling that everything will work out

I've got this funny feeling that everything will work out

I've got this funny feeling that everything -

Will fall --- into place.

 

So pack up your things and just leave him,

Come right out and just tell him where you were tonight.

Or kiss him tonight with the same mouth,

You used on me in my ... cold house,

And I promise I won't tell.

But I almost hear you thinking,

I can almost hear you thinking,

About ... him.

And all that you'll leave behind,

Lies heavy on your mind -

Heavy on my mind …

 

But I've got this funny feeling everything will work out

I've got this funny feeling that everything will work out

I've got this funny feeling that everything will work out

I've got this funny feeling that everything -

Will fall --- into place.

 

Here I go, another romantic on overflow,

I locked you out but you won't go,

The keys tied round your neck

Haven't quite strangled you yet.

And I live with my regrets,

Like you with your cigarettes,

I long to give you up,

Before you kill me.

 

We're too tied, too well-tied together.

Seeing Stars

Everybody knows you’re not perfect

But you still do your best to hide your flaws.

 

Everything you do is just surface

But we all know what goes on behind closed doors.

 

And you’ll never know how it feels

To be out on a limb, in the wind.

 

And you’ll never know how much it hurts

To fall so hard you see stars

 

To fall so hard you see stars

To fall so hard you see stars

To fall so hard you see stars

To fall so hard you see stars

 

Everything we do is falling snowflakes

It will all have melted by the dawn.

Give up all your fears for your own sakes

And follow me out into the storm.

 

You’ll never know how it feels

To be out on a limb, in the wind.

 

And you’ll never know how much it hurts

To fall so hard you see stars

 

To fall so hard you see stars

To fall so hard you see stars

To fall so hard you see stars

To fall so hard you see stars

Safe From Harm

 

I want know, where your sorrow flows

I want to go where no one goes.

I want sail, the dark ocean in you

And make it to the other...side.

And I won't wait

For the flood gates to break

And I won't wait until it's too late

 

I want to know where your sorrow grows

I want to know what no one knows.

I want to scale, the dark wall around you

And break through to the other...side.

 

And I won't wait

For the flood gates to break

And I won't wait

Until it's too late.

 

I will keep, you safe from harm.

I will keep, you safe from harm.

I will keep, you safe from harm.

I will keep, you safe from harm.

 

And I won't wait

For the flood gates to break

And I won't wait

Until it's too late.

 

And I won't wait

For the flood gates to break.

And I won't wait

Until it's too late.

Walk Right Out

 

White light broke the dead of night

Screaming woke the household from their sleep.

No one dreams here any more

At least not for the moment.

My little sister rise up from, your bed again

Think happy thoughts and let it go.

 

Hold on tight, let go lightly

One last night -

Battered and bruised but not broken

You walk right in, and walk right out.

 

I'm not sure what to feel

And I'm not sure of the best advice to give

And I'm not sure we will readily forgive him but

Think happy thoughts and let it go.

 

Hold on tight, let go lightly

One last night -

Battered and bruised but not broken

You walk right in, and walk right out.

Trampoline

 

Coming down again

Won't you leave a trampoline

At the foot, of the stairs?

So I won't break my neck

Falling out, of your favour.

 

White powder, speaks louder

Than any words you're saying

My flower, turned sour

I found the petals at the end, of the bed.

 

'It's just 'media-types' -

You know what they're like'

Well yeah, I do, but I never pictured you with them,

Coming in from the cold,

You're losing your hold,

On a part of me you'd stolen.

 

I've stopped, calling you when I'm drunk,

I've taken the time to hear the one,

Voice that's telling me,

That you don't really care,

I'm getting there -

I'm almost at the point of no return.

 

But there's a light that burns

 

White powder, speaks louder,

Than any words you're saying,

My flower, turned sour,

I found the petals at the end, of the bed.

 

'It's just 'media-types' -

You know what they're like'

Well yeah, I do, but I never pictured you with them,

Coming in from the cold,

You're losing your hold,

On a part of me you'd stolen.

 

Just turn out the lights

You know what they're like'

Well yeah, I do, but I never pictured you with them,

Coming in from the cold,

You're losing your hold,

On a part of me you'd stolen.

By My Side

 

Oh how we carry with us, traumas of the past

Faithful to moulds in which we’re cast.

Hand me down dysfunction, recidivist desire watch me

Throw another lover on the fire.

There’s a great white elephant, hidden in the room

Maybe you didn’t see him in the gloom.

You say that I am empty, emotionally devoid

Blame it on whatever, happened to the boy.

 

And maybe it’s better we don’t talk about it all

Maybe it’s better we don’t talk at all but

 

Don’t you want to be by my side?

I only want to be by your side.

Don’t you want to be by my side?

I only want to be by your side.

 

The boy in the photograph made me want to cry

When I saw the emotion in his eyes.

Is it any wonder I’m struggling to cope?

Is it any wonder we’re giving up hope?

 

And maybe it’s better we don’t talk about it all

Maybe it’s better we don’t talk at all but

 

Don’t you want to be by my side?

I only want to be by your side.

Don’t you want to be by my side?

I only want to be by your side.

 

Don’t you want to be by my side?

I only want to be by your side.

Don’t you want to be by my side?

I only want to be by your side.

All It Takes

 

Woke up at her place, tired and yawning

Looked out a window on a, perfect morning, there’s a

Sailing boat, in the square

Just like me, wondering how it got there.

 

Stood by her bed, and I, watched her sleeping

Through her scattered clothes, I go creeping

And I’m wondering

What the hell am I, so afraid of?

 

This is the beginning of something wonderful

This is the beginning of something magical

This is the beginning of something wonderful.

 

This is the beginning of something wonderful.

This is the beginning of something magical

And all it gives, and all it takes away.

 

Woke up at her place, early evening

She floats towards me and I’m, barely breathing, there’s a

Ray of sun, in her hair

Just like me, wondering how it got there.


Stand on the ledge, and I, walk out on the air  

I could die here and I, really wouldn’t care

I’m dropping in, I’m dropping out

I’m calling in, I’m calling out.
 

This is the beginning of something wonderful

This is the beginning of something magical

This is the beginning of something wonderful.

 

This is the beginning of something wonderful

This is the beginning of something magical

And all it gives, and all it takes away.

 

Dry docked and landlocked

What the hell am I, so afraid of?
