LYRICS

Into the Well

All along I felt a longing to find
the lighthouse but I found
a home through a lens
in the water
drawn from the well
I fell into

I know that I've been sleeping
and I know that I've been dreaming
But now the sun is streaming
and I swear that I've been here before


Not just the act of being
Caught somewhere in between and
I just can't fight this feeling
I swear that I've been here before

Are they mine?
These memories reside inside my mind

Bleeding borders
Run with colors seen before my time

I know that I've been sleeping
and I know that I've been dreaming
But now the sun is streaming
and I swear that I've been here before

Not just the act of being
Caught somewhere in between
I just can't fight this feeling
I swear that I've been here before

 

Night Owls

Come the summer, come the spring
Come the lonely parting of me
It was all in my head
To remember it
when you came and said to me
In my heart  you'll always be
Well I thought you were mine
But I know now
 
In time the light will come to seek me out

To draw my heart out from my mouth
and prey on words I'll never say
 
and in time the shadows form to feed the dark
to hide the beat of heavy hearts
so in the night I'll always stay
 
Come and toll your bells for me
Ringing out in rounds across the empty heart of mine
To break the silence in the night
In the darkness you
come and sing your songs to me
Spin me round and watch me fall to pieces over you
Yet you haven't a clue
Well I'm sure that
 
In time the light will come to seek me out
To draw my heart out from my mouth
and prey on words I'll never say
 
and in time the shadows form to feed the dark
to hide the beat of heavy hearts
so in the night I'll always stay
 
A cowering fall, a coward is all that I'll be
(See the sun, feel the sun)
 
But no will of mine could stop the dawning day
Could hide the sun so I must say
for you, my love will always stay



 

To See the Light
 

All we know
What we're told
 
You wanna know, you wanna know me
You wanna hold, you wanna hold me
You wanna love, you wanna love me
You wanna love
 
You wanna use, you wanna use me
You wanna hurt, you wanna hurt me
You wanna break, you wanna break me
You wanna break
 
Gonna see the light
Shining in your eyes
Frozen in the night
Gonna see the light
 
Soul of gold
Settle where you roam
 
Wandering in and out of the light
speak of the dark but never in night
echoing your losses
 
I wanna find the beat that moves you
into the dew that morning brings to
shake you from your shoulders
wake you from your slumber

 

 

 

On Echo

 

Love, where do the tears go
And where will my feet roam
and why won't my eyes close
Feeding the echo
Until everyone knows
You're never alone
 
Love unknown
Let your arms unfold
And let your heart be shown
Rest your eyes
while time is on our side
Well I will long for you
 
Love, where do the tears go
And where will my feet roam
and why won't my eyes close
Feeding the echo
Until everyone knows
You're never alone
 
Doubt be gone
to bare ourselves in song
Soon to sing along
Love anew
with minds as clear as dew
Well I will long for you
 
Love, where do the tears go
And where will my feet roam
and why won't my eyes close
Feeding the echo
Until everyone knows
You're never alone



 

Lullaby

Hush now, my darling

don't you cry

 

I'll sing you to sleep

with this lullaby

 

I will stay

I will stay


 

Monsters

Simmer down
Says the angel on your shoulder
Louder now
Says the fire at your neck
 
But I know you much better
you wouldn't play with a flame
watch it burn, watch it flicker
Till its something that you can tame
 
Hear the ghosts
as they assemble in the evening
whispering
yes they're calling out your name
 
well if you weren't such a coward
get up from under your bed
and tell me what it is your after
that's when you looked up at me and said
 
"Well I'm just a monster
Hiding from sighting 'till someone comes my way
I'm just a monster
No one will stay cause I scare them all away
I'm just a lonely, leery, weary soul who's longing for a heart"
No, you're no monster
You're still afraid of the dark
 
"Tell me now
What's this spell that I've been under
Help me out," you asked with hunger in your eyes
"For if love is the answer
I was damned from the start
Who could love this disaster
I'm just a body, no beating heart
 
Cause I'm just a monster
Hiding from sighting 'till someone comes my way
I'm just a monster
No one will stay cause I scare them all away
I'm just a lonely, leery, weary soul who's longing for a heart"
No, you're no monster
You're still afraid of the dark
You're still afraid of the dark

 

 

The Search

Wake at the start of an early dawn
To make me put my dress shoes on
You in your veil and your pale white dress
Still as kids, it all made sense
 
Out in the back where we used to play
It's always been my favorite game
We'd close our eyes and we'd spin around
And seal our lips until we're found
 
Let's go back to the light of our younger days
Hiding beside the trees
You called me your little honeybee
And you would look after me
Though it's getting cold and we're growing older
Now that we have to leave
I don't wanna play like it's lost and found
But will you always search for me
 
Slow at your hold, never let me go
Pray to god our time ticks slow
Of all parted hearts I've grown to know
Yours will always lead me home
 
Let's go back to the light of our younger days
Hiding beside the trees
You called me your little honeybee
And you would look after me
Though it's getting cold and we're growing older
Now that we have to leave
I don't wanna play like it's lost and found
But will you always search for me


 

In the Morning

Mother, mother, mother I've been down

Chasing all these shadows to the ground
She said, "Wait no more, wait no more"
It's been too long to find what you're searching for"
 
In the pacing of your footsteps to the door
in the saddest tone with words so deep you swore
You said, "cry no more, cry no more
Rest assured, my heart is always yours"
 
Here in the morning
When light hits the window wings
Say that you'll always wait for me
 
Falling still in silence, awake in screams
Since you left me with these nightmares instead of dreams
Say no more, say no more
Even when you're gone I love you more
 
Here in the morning
When light hits the window wings
Say that you'll always wait for me
 
Always wait
for always, wait for
always, stay with me

 

 

 

 

Lift Me Up

 

You come around and make the seasons change
You come around and leave the way you came
You come around and wipe my tears away
You make me wanna give my heart away
 
The way you speak, it leaves me without words
And when you're gone it makes me toss and turn
You come around and make sure that it hurts
You make sure that it hurts when you're away
 
Here among the clouds
We are safe and sound
You lift me up
You lift me up
 
You come around and light up everything
You stun me with your smile and all you bring
You come around and make me wanna sing
You make me wanna sing my fears away
 
Here among the clouds
We are safe and sound
You lift me up
You lift me up

 

 

 

Winter

They say love is in the air
So why can't I breathe in this repair

Let's say we trade heartbeats
what's mine is yours and yours is mine
For when you're here with me
I sleep so peacefully at night

Now heavy coats we wear
Snow clinging to your hair

Let's say we both believe
That maybe all we need is time
Then maybe truthfully
We will be perfectly aligned

I don't care what they say
I am already awake
My hands are shaking for you
For you

Let's say our lips will meet
We'll become lovers as I've seen
It can be black and white
or all the spectrums in between

I don't care what they say
I am already awake
My hands are shaking for you
For you
