Track Name: Stage Fright
Nothing’s ever what it seems
Cherished hopes, shattered dreams
Never knowing what it means
Till it falls apart

All the yearning, all your plans
Feel them slipping through your hands
And you don’t get a second chance
To fix a broken heart

Don’t tell me I’m a fool, I know
Stood aside and watched you go
Should’ve tried to hold on, but oh
I was looking at the stars

Where you only see what you wanna see
And you believe what will never be
I let you walk away from me
And now I wonder where you are

Like stage fright
Getting caught in the spotlight
Never thought I’d be on my own
In the danger zone
Not knowing where to start

Like stage fright
Lost for words on the first night
Hold your nerve gotta face the pack
Cos you can’t go back
Gotta learn to play the part
Track Name: Remember
Remember when life was easy
And all we wanted was free
Remember when nothing could stop us
From being what we wanted to be
Remember when time meant nothing
And love was only a game
You’d know every face in a crowd
But never recall any name

Remember when all that we needed
Was everything that we had
Not caring who thought you good
Not caring who thought you were bad
Remember you’d wake in the morning
All ready to take on the day
And never let anyone near you
To stop you or stand in your way

Tell me you understand
Why it feels the way that it does
Tell me it’s not too late
To make it the way that it was
When all that you had around you
Was all that you wanted to see
Tell me you still remember
And still believe in me
Track Name: Leave Me To Dream
We're in this situation
And you've gotta understand
Though I still look upon you as a friend
Just leave me to dream awhile

Don't think I don't appreciate
Just what you're trying to do
I'm not attaching any blame to you
Cos the problem, my friend, is mine

So go now, the lesson's over
You can't change the world
Some people, they just never learn

In these circumstances
There's nothing you can say
The disappointment isn't going away
So just leave me to dream alone

It's no use trying to tell me
That you know how much it hurts
That's only gonna make the matter worse
And I know that I'd be better on my own

So go now, the lesson's over
You can't change the world
Some people, they just never learn
Track Name: Almost There
Almost there and nowhere near at all
Thinking it better I jump than I fall
Standing with my back against the wall
Not giving in to anyone
Not being made to crawl

Never realising what I'd done
Never saw two of us then, only one
Not knowing what I had till it was gone
Not caring much about anything
Only a place to run

Then I had a guiding light
Now it doesn't shine so bright
I lie awake alone at night
Knowing I was wrong
Missing you so much, you see
Though I have no right to be
Wishing you were here with me
Here where you belong

Almost there and still just out of touch
How could I give so little
And take so much?
Letting down the only one I trust
Had to be the heart of everything
Had to be me, not us

Then I had a guiding light
Now it doesn't shine so bright
I lie awake alone at night
Knowing I was wrong
Missing you so much, you see
Though I have no right to be
Wishing you were here with me
Here where you belong
Track Name: Forever Love You Now
Where your heart goes, I'll go
Where your eyes shine, I'll follow
To share each moment that you know
Yesterday, today and tomorrow
I can't believe this love I have found
As long as you want me
Then I'll be around
I will love you forever
And forever love you now

While we're sleeping, I dream
That you'll always be with me
Though the time flies and I know the flame
Can turn cold and die out so quickly
But while the fire still burns in your eyes
Then you know I'll always
Be there by your side
I will love you forever
And forever love you now

Without you there
What would my life be?
You're all that I want now
You're all that I need
I will love you forever
And forever love you now
Track Name: Riding Out The Storm
When they ever gonna free me?
When they ever gonna leave me
To live my life
And take you where you wanna go?

Don't you listen to their lies now
Can't you see it in my eyes now?
There shines a light of love
That they could never know

So trust in me
It was meant to be
And don't you fear
Don't you be afraid
I'll keep you safe from harm
When they're all lost
Along the way
We'll still be here
Riding out the storm
Riding out the storm

So whatever game they're playing
And no matter what they're saying
They're trying to break your heart
Cos they don't understand

And whatever pain you're feeling
Don't you ever stop believing
Cos we both know the truth
Will make it in the end

So trust in me
It was meant to be
And don't you fear
Don't you be afraid
I'll keep you safe from harm
When they're all lost
Along the way
We'll still be here
Riding out the storm
Riding out the storm
Track Name: Golden Days Of Ours
The golden days of ours have passed us over
There was nothing, now you've got it made
They say you had to do a lot of favours
Oh, I bet you did

Now you're living where the weather suits you
Making all of everything you've got
They say there's nothing
That you couldn't buy now
Oh, I bet there's not

You don't know the things that I hear about you
Now don't suppose I think that they're all true
I know how these rumours
And stories get around
But I miss the time that you spent with me
And I wish that life was like it used to be
But you're up there in the clouds
And I'm on the ground

Did you think that it would come so easy?
Did you know they'd make demands of you?
Don't you ever want to turn the clock back?
Oh, I know I do

Don’t you realise how much I miss you?
You must have known that
It would break my heart
Don't you care now that the situation
Is tearing me apart?

Oh, I know you did what you had to do
Don’t get me wrong I’m so proud of you
I always thought you deserved
Something better somehow
I just can't believe how much
Things have changed
It was all so good and now it's all so strange
When you're up there in the clouds
And I'm on the ground

Now I wonder if it really happened
I can’t tell if things are what they seem
Did I really hear you say you love me
Or was it just a dream?

But you were real
When you were here beside me
You must have been to make me feel like this
Now it isn’t real, it’s just a memory
Yes, that’s all it is

When I see your face on a TV screen
Or I read about you in some magazine
It always makes me sad, always gets me down
I’ve got to realise that we’re all through
You’re not coming back
There’s nothing here for you
You’re up there in the clouds
And I’m on the ground

Wasted time
All those golden days of ours
Just wasted time
Track Name: Empty Promises
There's trouble in Boomtown
Things are not going well
There's a stranger in Paradise
And he's making it Hell

He doesn't dance to the music
Doesn't join in the sin
He just waits outside the city gates
But he never comes in

We don't know where he comes from
We don't know who he is
But he laughs at the people
Their red blood
Their blue eyes
Their black hearts
And their empty promises

There's a rumour in Boomtown
Yes, I've heard people talk
They say there's gonna be an eclipse of the sun
Yes it's gonna get dark

And then there's the stranger
That we don't understand
He goes down to the riverside
And he washes his hands

We don't know where he comes from
We don't know who he is
But he laughs at the people
Their red blood
Their blue eyes
Their black hearts
And their empty promises

Things are different in Boomtown
Seemed to change overnight
It seems as soon as the city grew dark
Everyone saw the light

There's no sign of the stranger
It's like he didn't exist
And though he'll not be forgotten
I know he'll never be missed

We don't know where he comes from
We don't know who he is
But he laughs at the people
Their red blood
Their blue eyes
Their black hearts
And their empty promises
Track Name: Over and Over
Never been in love like this
Never known my heart to be on fire
Never known the pain it brings
Turning over and over and over

Can’t believe how bad it is
Can’t believe a word when you’re a liar
Lie to me with every kiss
Just to get what you want

And you take from me all you can
All I have, all I am
And you make believe that you understand
Over and over again
You take from me all I own
All I've been, all I’ve known
And you leave me here to cry alone
Over and over again

Got to find a way to lose this heartache
And take my life back again
Got to find a way to get you out of my mind
Track Name: Walking In The Moonlight
Walking in the moonlight
Feeling easy
I just missed the last bus
Going home
But I know a quick way
Through the graveyard
So I take a shortcut
Round the stones

But I get a feeling
Something's stirring
I begin to wonder
Am I alone?
I can hear whispers
In the darkness
I can hear the sound of
Creaking bones

I see something moving
In the shadows
I'd have gone the long way
If I'd have known

Walk a little faster
Someone's coming
I can hear their voices
Softly moan
Oh, they're getting closer
Start running
Don't stop till your outa here
Keep goin'

Hand upon my shoulder
Cold and sweaty
I can't get my breath
I start to groan
Turn around and look
I don't believe it
My imagination I'm all alone

Walking in the moonlight
