Track Name: Sign Of Life
Sign Of Life

There was no sign
No sign of life

Take me
Take me for what I am
Take me as fast as you can
Take me away
Make me
Make me something I'm not
Make me something I forgot
Make me ok

There was no sign
No sign of life

Thank you
Thank you for being you
Thank you for coming through
Thank you my friend
Keep us
Keep us together
Keep us forever
In love without end
Track Name: Contact Light
Contact Light

Time is on my side
Space is on my mind
I'll call you when I'm home tonight
You'll see the contact light

It's been a long time away
It's a long time away
A way to come
A way to go
It's a second and a half 'til I can see you
You know that in this life I will always see you
You are my star and I will always love you

My breath freezes in the air I breathe the air I see
My frozen fingers tingle
When I see your face around around
I love the reflection you in my eye
I don't need the darkness of the night sky
And I feel home and I feel warm and I am home
Track Name: The Following
The Following

I'm not following you
I got here first
I'm not following you
I don't understand what you're saying to me
You're not paranoid
Are you?
Are you?
I think you might be
What's got into you?
What's your problem?
I think we need to sit down and talk about it

There's something taken over me
Something in my chemistry
I can't put it into words
But I can't take it
There's someone out there on the street
Something in the water
I can't see what's going on
I can't see past them

I'm not following you
I got here first
I'm not following you
I don't understand what you're saying to me
You're not paranoid
Are you?
Are you?
I think you might be
What's got into you?
What's your problem?
I think we need to sit down and talk about it

You've got to be kidding me
You think I didn't see?
Just before you blocked my view
Someone taking aim!
Don't tell me you're just passing by
Don't say it's my imagination
I don't trust a word you say
You're all the same!

Move, move, get out the way!
What is it that you're hiding from me?
Just when I think I know what's going on
You move out the way, someone else comes along

I'm not following you...
Track Name: Supastar
Supastar

Looking at you and there's nothing I can say
That hasn't already been said about you now
Thinking of you and there's not a single day
That I could imagine living here without you now

There's nothing in the universe that shines as bright as you

Talking to you there's nothing in the way
The signal never blocks and there's no compromise
Reaching for you this in not a game we play
There are no rules and we stop time it never flies
Breathing with you I can see your beating heart
I can feel it next to mine and we are synchronised
Lying with you I can see the life coursing through me
And I'm living here as I've never done

There's nothing in the universe that shines as bright as you

Beautiful star shine as you are
There's nothing in the universe
You'll alway shine so please just shine
Shine on me
Track Name: Every Light In The Flaming House
Every Light In The Flaming House

I'm running round the house turning every light on
I know it's burning down
It's such a stupid dream
But it's what you used to say and I can't let it go
No I can't let you go

I'm standing here
I can't believe that you have gone so many years inside this house
It feels so cold I need some warmth
Without you here there's nothing left
Except memories of better times echoing inside

I'm running round the house turning every light on
I know it's burning down
It's such a stupid dream
But it's what you used to say and I can't let it go
No I can't let you go

I close my eyes and you're still there
A steady hand a calming voice
I turn around and you have gone
It's time to go
To move along to live my life
To have you here inside my heart is all I need

I'm running round the house turning every light on
I know it's burning down
It's such a stupid dream
But it's what you used to say and I can't let it go
No I can't let you go
Track Name: Life Beats Better
Life Beats Better

There is something coursing through me
I can feel it in my bones
Rushing faster overwhelming
I am losing all control
I hear my heartbeat getting louder
Getting stronger all the time
Feel the blood inside my body 'cos i know that you are mine

You live
You lose
You learn
You choose to fight another day
You love
You win
Your life begins to head in the right way

Standing alone at the station waiting for another train
I can feel you right here with me keeps me safe and free from pain
Moon is shining very brightly and I see your face again
I can't explain it I don't need to
I'm a moth and you're my flame
Track Name: Everything Everywhere
Everything Everywhere

I have noticed that you have noticed me
And you have noticed that I am looking at you
It's a crowded train and I can feel you breathing on me
Leaning on me
Touch me touch me now

In a darkened room I can see your eyes lit up like stars
Drawing me in
Moments later and I am next to you
Reaching out for you
Touch me touch me now
I need to feel you touch me touch me now
Is it me or is there something in the air?
I can feel the love
I can feel the love
I can feel the love in everything everywhere


Is there nothing that can stop us
We are drawn together
We are one
This is something I have not done
I'm reaching out for you
Touch me touch me now
I need to taste you touch me touch me now
Is it me or is there something in the air
I can feel the love
I can feel the love
I can feel the love in everything everywhere
Track Name: Idle Like Me
Idle Like Me

You don't want to take this thing from me
You don't want to take it
I'm not going to lie to you my love
I'm not going to fake it (no)
There's way too much effort needed here
I'm not going to make it no no no
It's time that I told you my dirty little secret
I'm f*****g idle
Track Name: The Calm Before The Storm
The Calm Before The Storm

There's a shift
Almost imperceptible
I can feel it in the air
Something small
Almost undetectable but I know that it's there
So I drift almost lying motionless
I won't force it I don't care
Something huge almost all encompassing
I'm alive without fear
It's a trick
Almost unavoidable but I am ready I am clear
Something warm always makes me comfortable
I will hold it keep it near
So it comes almost taking over me
Let it wash me out to sea
Something cool almost without knowing I...

The calm before the storm
It keeps me warm
Bring it
Bring it on
Track Name: A Million Lashes
A Million Lashes

Talk to me
What's on your mind
Among the living something died

Paint a picture
Let it dry
Time for Laughter
Time to cry
Walk with me see what we find
Hidden secrets a past denied

A million lashes
A million tears
A million hopes
A million fears
A million suns
A million stars
A million wishes
A million ways to break a heart

Down the streets and in the homes
People sleeping together alone
Burning bridges and cutting ties
Killing memories
Living lies

A million lashes
A million tears
A million hopes
A million fears
A million suns
A million stars
A million wishes
A million ways to break a heart

Don't go changing to try to tease me
We both know what burns inside
Pick me up or put me down
The hurt is over but just for now
Just for now sleep with one eye open
Track Name: Signing Off
Signing Off

Goodnight my moon and stars
Goodnight my inspiration
Goodnight my joy
Goodnight my love
There's nothing in the universe
That can compare to you
No-one I've ever known
Who makes me feel like you do
I'm feeling blown away
With every little word you say
I'm spinning off my axis
And I'm heading for the edge

Outside is nothing
Inside is something

Goodnight my moon and stars
Goodnight my inspiration
Goodnight my joy
Goodnight my love
You bring me happiness
You bring me true release
So let me close my eyes and
I'll see you in my dreams
It feels like there is nothing
That I cannot do
Feels like the world is at my feet
When I'm standing next to you

Outside is nothing
Inside is something
I love you
Goodnight
