Lyrics

Sailing by moonlight a ship rode the waves
Of the dark sea, though beware of the
Chorus of voices so delicate
Singing in harmony, proclaiming love for the
Sailors who heard this were transfixed but drowned
In their quest to see where this beauty
Rose from the depths with a vengeance for men
But encountered the most beautiful daughter of Eve

In a moment of wonder they’d fallen in love
This woman of the sea, and the slave she called Eve
With no reason to stay, so she stole her away
Broke her pact with the sea, for on land they would be

For years so they lived in the trees on a cliff
Singing sweet melodies, of their cares they set free
Until on fateful night, Eve was found by the ice
Heart broken into three, the woman threw herself to the sea

In the spare room under the window is a castle
With a draw bridge, three turrets, and a moat
In the spare room underneath the window lives a dragon
Breathing fire, casting shadows but alone

He begins to dream of friends of old
Imagining their scales, their spikes,
Their wings unfold to dance with him through darkened skies
Under starry nights

In the spare room the sun is setting on the horizon
As the dragon paces ‘round his empty home
In the silence of the night inside the castle
A single tear can be heard fall

He begins to dream of friends to hold
Imagining their scales, their spikes
Their wings unfold to dance with him through darkened skies
With their tails entwined

In the spare room dawn is breaking on the castle
As the dragon wakes to find another soul
Oh she’s glowing and she smells just like the dragon
Hint of sulphur, but mostly cinnamon and clove

He begins to dream that there is hope
Embracing all her scales and spikes
Their wings unfold to dance across the clear blue skies
With their hearts on fire

Her wings unfold just like his own
Her heart burns just as bright
She dances like she’s always known
Too perfect to be right

He begins to realise what’s true
Watching as her scales and spikes
Fade into clouds, and sea, and birds
’Til she’s gone from view
As the sun sets too

In the spare room underneath the window lives a dragon
Breathing fire, casting shadows, but alone

Oh how graceful the mountains, chaos lost to the sea
A silent waterfall throws her heart against the wall as she tries to breath
Oh how freely the breeze flows, softly tempts the fall of leaves
In a daze she slips away into a spiral of a maze ’til the morning breaks

Oh can’t she see?
Those grey skies look blue to me

Oh how sweet is the bird song, fills the air with melody
Her soul has wandered far across a plane of fog to sparce to know the way
Oh how calmly the clouds drift, bringing rage yet so serene
A storm has washed ashore a wave of hope she will ignore for another day

Oh can’t she see?
Those grey skies look blue to me

Oh how golden the sun sets, crimson rays between the trees
A frost is yet to thaw, ’til then she waits and dreams of more than fresh layers of snow
Oh how peaceful the darkness, scattered stars cloaked in mystery
In the dead of night oceans of black engulf the light when she can’t sleep

Oh help her see
Those grey skies can be
Blue

Clockwork mechanism, she’s spinning in her prison
Locked away but brought out to play over and over again, over and over again
Every time she closes her eyes, she sees a world where she’s as free as bird
Yet in her dreams, as mad as it seems, she still twists and turns, for that music she yearns

What if it floods inside? Would she fight against the tide?
Or would the waves capsize her tortured mind?
Can she find safe land? Risking all that she has?
Just to tip her hat to the ferry man?
Or would she cry red tears?

A swallow calls her lady, and hopes that she will break free
Find the strength to rip apart the cage He placed as the lid to reality
Hands so soft and tender reaching out for a solid structure
As her balance crumbles and wavers, will the notes forgive and save her?

What if it floods inside? Would she fight against the tide?
Or would the waves capsize her tortured mind?
Can she find safe land? Risking all that she has?
Just to tip her hat to the ferry man?
Or would she cry red tears?

Her soul is glowing faintly
The sun taunts her earthbound body

As if floods inside she fights against the tide
But the waves capsize her tortured mind
There is no safe land, she’s risked all that she had
Just to tip her hat to the ferryman

Clockwork mechanism, she’s crying in her prison
Locked inside, lost in the night, she drip drip drips her life away

You’ll find me under blankets in Iceland
You’ll find me in five years or more
You’ll find me eating bagels and ice cream
Come and find me, cuz I’m done waiting for

You’ll find me playing cello to grade 8
You’ll find me speaking fluently Dutch
You’ll find me BASE jumping in Asia
Come and find me, cuz I’m done waiting for

You’ll find me drinking red wine in Venice
You’ll find me living on the top floor
You’ll find me almost pro on a snowboard
Come and find me, cuz I’m done waiting for

You’ll find me with more than enough cats
You’ll find me riding rapids in France
You’ll find me tricking Route 66
Come and find me, cuz I’m done waiting for

You’ll find me with millions of diamonds
Oh you’ll find me in a really fast car
You’ll find me with Su as my best friend
Just come find me, cuz I’m done waiting for

But you can find me under blankets in Scotland
And find me not far from the shore
You can find me dancing round the kitchen
But you won’t try to and I’m done hoping for

I blame the lies that are spun and the spiders that did it
The years of oppression that have just become habit

Oh what a tangled web they weave
Oh what we let ourselves believe

Blame the disease that we feed upon perceived as prescription
This toxic decay promoting hate is such a wasted subscription

Chorus

Accusing the hungry of crimes committed
By leeches on thrones eating banquets a minute
Convincing the ill there their purses replenish
Just set fire to the neighbours poorer than you

Chorus

I blame the lies that are spun and the spiders that do it
For humanity is dead and they paid our lives for it

Drifting like a father on the wind
No commitment to any sin
Fishing with a bird on the line
Washed away with the tide

Believe in me
Through rose glass see

Choosing the oppressed reality
Wish away your daydreams
Hoping the blind will be saved
Watch the trees they’re who to blame

Chorus

Behind dead eyes in my mind it’s blue
In my mind I convince you blue
Just look outside the sky is blue
The child inside was raised blue

Trusting the bait is the truth
Scarred by thorns, you naive youth

Chorus

Miracles do occur
But maybe not in your own words
The evidence is limited
Would you feel worth it?

Hang up your head and witness the end
Look what we have to show for
The onlookers wait at the Golden Gates
Breaking promises we hoped for

In the grand scheme of things
There’s no point in us panicking
Emotions are irrelevant
We’re all gonna die anyway

She wore a trench coat, he wore a skirt
The follow each other around the earth
Glowing at night, she sways in the day
But when the sun shines he’s nothing to say

She wore a veil and he wore a clock
When he outshone the stars she’d mirror them both
A harmony hidden from fierce eyes of crows
For their darkness would drown all the love that they know

She let her hair fall, he has a comb
When the fog has dispersed he’d guide the way home
She rode a storm, lost her heart on a whim
If only it rained much closer to him

This is impossible
It is if you believe it’s true
How is this possible?
Just believe in love like how I do

He is the moon, and she is the sea
They’ve followed each other for eternity
Never quite reaching, gaze from afar
But they yearn for more, when it’s all in their hearts

I don’t know anymore
I’m caught up in a storm of your hair
And the scent that you left
From a place that I’ve not been before

Thought I knew my own mind
Thought that I could decide my own fate
Let it wander, create
And then I’d get to choose my own time

“Just don’t fall too deep”
What kind of advice are you giving?
Are you scared or living?
I doubt that you’re just warning me

Maybe I’m naive
Oh wise one laugh at my youthful ideas
But if truthful
We’re more similar than you believe

I don’t want this to end
But it’s just the beginning of something
That may just be nothing
Pre-empting a heart break again

But if this is it
I’ll never regret that we met
Or the lion in the airport
Just sad for what we could’ve been

Oh I know I’m alone
Waking up in the cold
It ain’t trust that I’m lacking in love
Just a sense of someone to call home

This feels so bare
Naked honesty rare from my words
Oh this venerable curse
Hidden away in a metaphor

“It’s never my fault”
We all caused this
Too much damage now
“Can’t save everyone”

How is it fair?
Aren’t we lucky choosing to care?
When will it end?
When we’ve murdered all of our friends

Is it down to us?
Get rid, build new
A stolen solution
Did it work before?

How is it fair?
Aren’t we lucky choosing to care?
When will it end?
When we’ve murdered all of our friends

Will we ever change?
Or is this what we’ve become
Destruction, lies, and pain
Such a world worth fighting for

How is is fair?
Aren’t we lucky choosing to care?
When will it end?
When we’ve murdered all of our friends,
And each other

Looking back on old conversations
With people who once meant the world to me,
Understanding their confusion, codes messages
Trying to say things subtly, give you a chance to start again.
Hoping you would catch my drift know that something is wrong.

I never truly shared my deepest thoughts with you,
I never truly revealed my pain.
It never occurred to me that I should’ve just told you.
I didn’t want to hurt you all over again.

Reading over words, I could fall back in love with you so easily.
But like me, you’re just the same, Never showing the real pain

Living in past memories, expecting you to change
Justifying what you did, to make it through the day
Trying to make an effort, make things go a certain way
Hoping things would get better though we both don’t feel the same

Chorus

We all need to grow as individuals,
Even though we’re emotional,
We both know, that it’s over

Reading over words, I could fall back in love with you so easily.
But like me, you’re just the same,
Never showing the real pain

Every night, she dreams of her
And every time they’re together
Every tear that falls from her cheek,
In her dream, she saves with her sleeve

Does she know she’s in love? With the idea of a mum?
That woman left her many years ago
Still cries herself to sleep, but nobody knows

On a stormy day she thought she heard
A voice calling her name, on the wind
She looked out to sea, if this voice could be,
Who she hoped to meet, come to love her

Does she know she’s in love? With the idea of a mum?
That woman left her many years ago. Still cries herself to sleep, but nobody knows

But not everything is as it seems
That women was only in her dreams
Now she must find her inner being
And be the someone who she needs and believes in

Does she know, oh does she see
She’s everything that woman could ever be
She’s changed her world, the past is history
Now she’s the woman she always wanted to meet

Sitting in maths, ideas flowing
But where do I write my inspiration?
Caged in school with people panicking about tests
But there’s no way of knowing what their future holds

I wish I could be with you everyday, every time.
But when I sit in class you are always on my mind.

Trying to think and remember,
When some idiot mutes your strings.
Trying to hear the teacher talking,
But I wish I was far away with music in my ears

Chorus

You love me, I love you too
But how can we be together when I have school

Chorus

You love me, I love you too
But how can we be together when I have school

The flowers in the garden are all in bloom,
And everyone around town is looking at you.
You flitter fly on passed, not a care in the world,
Searching for that one special girl.

When you find that one girl, you can’t believe that its true,
As she looks you in eye and says that she loves you.
You take her by the hand, and dance off through the night,
Lead her to that flower, you know that she likes.

One day she disappears, flew off in the night.
Deep down inside you know something ain’t right.
You fly around town, in search of your girl,
Looking everywhere, but she’s lost in the world.

Suddenly she’s there, and you know for sure,
You can’t live without her, not anymore.
Thinking just the crystal is keeping you apart,
Her wings spread beside her, a pin through her heart.

Close the door, feel the heat off of the radiator.
Warm your heart and recall the times it wasn’t winter.

Grass ain’t growing,
Frost is glimmering.
Outside it’s snowing
We’re always shivering.

You know winter comes and goes.
You know when it goes comes the sun.

Curl round the fire and enjoy one of those toasted bagels,
Share a laugh open unwanted gifts that you’ll eBay later.

Grass ain’t growing,
The frost is glimmering.
Outside it’s snowing
We’re always shivering.

Chorus

No matter how cold it gets,
No matter how miserable.
We’ll make it through the hard times and come out the other side

Chorus

Grab your coat and spend hours staring at the stars,
Hawthorn berries turn from red to white as the snow falls

Grass ain’t growing,
The frost is glimmering.
Outside it’s snowing
We’re always shivering.

Chorus

Can I decide? Or are we chosen for this life?
Does our existence depend on purely the journey we’ve already taken?
Have we earned this time?
Or did our former souls fight to define the outcome our future securing a path to not get left behind.

Do we deserve this right, to our human lives?
Have we waited for years amongst the shadows for the opportunity to shine?
Or have we proven worthy for the chance of a life time
To fulfill our purpose of service to make some sort of impact on mankind

And at the end of the road, are you happy to go?
Or are you regretting still dreaming and wishing you could go back change,
See what you were missing.

But now, it’s too late.
You’ve had your chance so you must wait
As long as it takes, to regain that time that you lost through your life,
Because you never tried to live.

Ba ba da da da etc. X2

Pull open your eyes,
It’s morning, you watch the sun rise.
Climb out of your bed,
You’ve got to get her out your head.

Loves to dance in the rain,
Everyone but you think she’s insane.
You wish you could join her,
But she doesn’t even know your name.

When she walks in a room,
You secretly wish she’d look at you,
But when she walks down the street,
She smiles everyone that she meets.

You’re both at a friend’s,
And by now you think that that’s the end,
But when it’s time for goodnight
She grabs your hand and holds you tight

Ba ba da da da etc. X2

Pull open your eyes,
You don’t have to watch the sunrise.
You can stay in your bed,
And hold onto her hand instead.

I sit by the window and I wait for you
I wish every evening that you’d come for me
I hope for the day that you whisk me away into the night.

I lay in the long grass and I wait for you,
I stay as the cool breeze swims over me.
I dream about the day when you whisk me away into the night.

In the shade of the oak tree I wait for you
I watch as the acorns rain on me
I sing about the day when you whisk away into the night

I hope for the day that whisk me away
I dream about the day when you’ll whisk away
I sing about the day when you’ll whisk me away in the night

I sit by the window and I wait for you
I wish every evening that you’ll come for me
I hope for the day when you whisk me into the night

Chords throughout: (Am, Em, G, FMadd9)

We sing your own songs, we laugh and we cheer,
Drink all your wine, never shed a tear.
Dance through the night and kiss by the fire,
Share some old stories your smile I desire.

These were the times before San Francisco,
Days before Brazil and Monico.
Times before France and Japan,
Before you met that young girl, wouldn’t let go of her hand.

I dreamt of our future when we ran away.
Lived on the road, I never complained.
Just you, me, the dog in your little white van,
Touring the country, eating out of cans.

Chorus

Your face is aglow, your eyes shine bright.
Your arms wrap around her as she holds on tight.

(Instrumental)

I sing some old song don’t laugh or cheer,
Drink all the wine, shed all my tears.
Alone through the night, still cold by the fire.
Dream of old stories your smile I desire.

Chorus

65 texts on your phone,
All from me, I know you ain’t alone.
35 missed calls from me,
We need to talk, pretty urgently.
They say that they heard you, that they heard you talk to her again.
They say that they saw you, that they saw you kiss her again.
Please say they’re wrong.
Seventeen emails left unread,
You don’t read anything I’ve said.
Twenty two DM’s on Twitter,
That you won’t get, ’til much, much later.
Chorus
But I will never know if it was meant to be,
Or it was all just lies and you were kidding me.
My hearts now open wide, just for you to see.
Just have the guts to say goodbye.
You could’ve just told me,
That they heard you, that they heard you talk to her again.
Why didn’t you tell me,
That they saw you, that they saw you kiss her again
I guess it’s goodbye
I want to hug you everyday and kiss you in everyway. I want to write our names in the sand and walk round, hand in hand. I want to carve hearts in a tree and it say you love me.
Without you by my side, I’d be nothing in life.
Without you in my life, I’d be nothing inside.
I want see the sun go down with you when no one’s around. I want to lay down, stare at the sky and watch the clouds floating by. I want to write a song for you, so you know I love you too.
Chorus
La la la la la, la la la la la la la la
Chords throughout: Bb, G He’s gone on holiday, Left home with no money. Don’t know what he’s going to do, I might as well put it to use.
It’s our little secret,
Promise to keep it?
No need to repeat it.
What he don’t know won’t hurt him, so shhh…
Ba ba ba da ba da ba
Ba da ba ba (x2)
What he don’t know won’t hurt him, so shhh…
Gone on a big shopping spree, To find he’s come home early. He asks “Where’s the money kept?” But it’s all been spent not under the bed.
Chorus
His credit card and a bottle of wine, Bad combination when you are online. Binned all the boxes, hung it all on the rack. I guess there ain’t no going back
Chorus
He says, “Oh, are they new? Those shoes, with the bright blue?” I say, “Oh, I’m sure You’ve seen these old things before…”
Ba ba ba da ba da ba
Ba da ba ba (x2)
What he don’t know won’t hurt him, so shhh…
