Maybe I was too young to remember what a storm does to a fire have you heard your mother curse have you heard your daddy cry tears as he tries to justify she takes the keys and goes for a drive Leave Your Love Leave Your Love Behind Leave Your Love Leave Your Love Behind Never had a whole lotta money had a driveway of cars far too old brothers & mothers, fathers and sisters they can all make you feel so small but it's better than feeling alone If you're down, need a little time or unsatisfied it's not easy to see the falling apart of someone you care for Leave Your Love Leave Your Love Behind Leave Your Love Leave Your Love Behind If you're scared, need a little time or unsatisfied it's not easy to see the falling apart of someone you care for Leave Your Love Leave Your Love Behind Leave Your Love Leave Your Love Behind

Why don't you prove them wrong, I'm saying now what I said back then, this whole town always held you down You can do better you just have to start It's easier to be yourself and leave than to play the part I gotta get outta this place I gotta leave town Same old fools on that same old merry go 'round Small bars and rusted cars Demolitions and reconstruction New hope and one more joke about living here Everything come and everything goes but it's always the same I'm not saying I don't like it that way I'm just saying every now and then I gotta get outta this place I hope you prove them wrong someday they'll know I won't say how I told you so while tall poppies grow You can do better you just have to start it's easier to be yourself and leave than to play the part I gotta get outta this place I gotta leave town Same old fools on that same old merry go 'round Small bars and rusted cars Demolitions and reconstruction New hope and one more joke about living here Everything come and everything goes but it's always the same I'm not saying I don't like it that way I'm just saying every now and then I gotta get outta this place I gotta get out I gotta get out I gotta get out

These streets take me to my darkest hours Every bus stops seems like where we used to fool around hiding from the rain warm October rain below the scaffold towers I remember everything, I remember everything Sour were the stains on the taxi seat, scouring at the hotel built on top of where we used to drink Times the sweetest cure but it don't feel that long ago that we were underneath loaded linen sheets now you're calling someone else's name While I remember everything, I remember everything All our love, it's only an illusion All our love, it's only an illusion Pawned all your possessions the masters way to part I kept a few reminders but the pain is in the past I sunk in my seat kissing both your feet learning how to think learning how to drink Still be playing dumb still be getting drunk Can you remember much? I remember everything, I remember everything All our love, it's only an illusion All our love, it's only an illusion I saw the future from your falcon and it turned the engine quiet surreal became secure as the windscreen turned to white The clouds were creeping in as we reached the highest peak pointing out the cargo ships like pirates on the seas trembling were your thighs as we tried to be quiet grass painted pretty little patterns all up and down your back I remember that I remember everything, I remember everything All our love, it's only an illusion All our love, it's only an illusion

Crawling over white lines pawning what I need placing all my bets while I'm on a losing streak Put it all upon pursuits that can satisfy the whole knowing now, how success don't lead to happiness I'll do what I can do I'll do what I have to, I will try to keep my head above the water to keep my feet upon the ground I'll do what I have to, I'll do what I can to keep me from sinking to the sand to keep my head above the water Would you play the good bars for whatever's in the hat? money comes and leaves on the breeze but we've no need to talk about the weather I'll slow dance on fast road count my losses on a dream watch the stars bright, they turn to white while I'm turning green I'll do what I can do I'll do what I have to, I will try to keep my head above the water to keep my feet upon the ground I'll do what I have to, I'll do what I can to keep me from sinking, to the sand to keep my head above the water Try to change a bad world with a line lost in a song you'll loose a dozen lovers it ain't hard to lose a lover Would you get yourself a desk job? Could you pay yourself a wage? everybody's got a dream or two nobody dreams to fade I'll do what I can do Yeah, I'll do what I have to, I will try to keep my head above the water to keep my feet upon the ground Yeah, I'll do what I have to, I'll do what I can to keep me from sinking to the sand to keep my head above the water

Don't you wonder why there are people on the streets waiting for a meal, searching for some place to sleep some are young, some are getting old few have hope but they need something real to hold some know better, some don't know others got homes but they're safer sleeping in the cold Don't you wonder why Don't you wonder why Don't you wonder why Don't you wonder everybody's in need you look upon the others as you look down upon your feet You say your running low while you buy Mercedes Benz Call it half a dollar; someone calls it fifty cents You're a catalyst and a criminal but they don't treat you any less as you shout towards the alter and demand your forgiveness Don't you wonder why Don't you wonder why Don't you wonder why When something catches your ever knowing eyes bet you wonder why it took you such a long time You can't just sit there curtains drawn wishing that you could see more Don't you wonder why Don't you wonder why Don't you wonder why Don't you wonder why there is murder on T.V youth robbing stores, lovers who beat Everybody's at war against someone with more the rich fight the rich, the poor feed the poor too afraid to look upon a helpless scream While children shoot all there friends on a television screen Don't you wonder why Don't you wonder why Don't you wonder why So while you sit there counting all the chips stacked in front of you and redefine your existence with your every slippery move You've tried to be sincere but sarcasms dripping from your tongue You're forsaken, you leave every conversation like you've won Don't you wonder why Don't you wonder why Don't you wonder why When something catches your ever knowing eyes bet you wonder why it took you such a long time You can't just sit there curtains drawn wishing that you could see more Don't you wonder why Don't you wonder why Don't you wonder why Don't you wonder why Don't you wonder why Don't you wonder why

Roll On 03:13
From the infinite ache which confronts us at loves wake where absence grows within the eyes but for now everything is sacred right here in the twilight Burgundy hands just a memory the future issuch a foreign land will blue rivers still carry life while the skin forever grows tired Roll on; in the precious hours where love is being born Roll on Roll on; you need forget the fear of being worn Roll on, Roll on Beauty seasons break snow only buries thorns and litter loneliness upon sidewalks where the hurt are being born One can feel infinity and isolation within one city sadness keeps on seeping out from shadows next to where nothing stands With no idea what we're on about, we can't hold ice with burning hands Roll on; in the precious hours where love is being born Roll on Roll on; while you forget the fear of being worn Roll on, Roll on Roll On Roll On Roll On Roll On Roll on; in the precious hours where love is being born Roll on Roll on; while you forget the fear of being worn Roll on, Roll on

It's torment at it's best and there ain't no sign of relief when the right kind of resistance fuels political disease Lay your guns down at the table next to where they write the facts There's no surprise it's only fiction now you realise you can't say anything back 'Cause all around is too much repetition turning circles time and time again we are bound to turn in new directions no more kissing of the barrels no more staring straight ahead No more useless conversations while everybody's glued to pointless confrontation where everybody loses politicians ain't in parliament, they're just losers on the news yeah yeah yeah they're just losers on the news Count the cameras as a weapon they don't care who they shoot trading thoughts for television take a guess who's gonna be capturing you 'Cause all around is too much repetition turning circles time and time again we are bound to turn in new directions no more kissing of the barrels no more staring straight ahead no more useless conversations while everybody's glued to pointless confrontation where everybody loses politicians ain't in parliament, they're just losers on the news yeah yeah yeah they're just losers on the news

Remember the scent of roses rested on gravestones Remember the sound of wisdom as it scorns adolescence He passed long ago but his words supersede him that desires and dreams don't create freedom Oh my, it's only a matter of time Remember how it felt to witness those who were weeping Remember the strength of those who admit their weakness Hear the roar of a thousand men breaking Reached for a gun with no ammunition Oh my, it's only a matter of time Oh my, it's only a matter of time Believing in magic I could almost believe in religion Trying to deny logic while the skies disappearing Through the constant flash of machines getting wiser and the fear on our faces as we farewell our power Oh my, it's only a matter of time Oh my, it's only a matter of time Oh my, it's only a matter of time

Harrow Road 04:31
Don't leave your door ajar danger stands outside Don't keep your window wide gloom is creeping past the kind you wish you could talk to but there never came a time the one you heard would kiss and kill but they told you “you are a different kind” When you know someone so well there are words you dare to speak come and take a walk with me down on Harrow Street If walls could talk we'd all be faithful and we all know if you're happy you're in denial everybody breaks a vow, more maybe every once in a little while the kind you wish you could talk to but you aren't the bravest lion the one you heard would kiss and kill but they told you “you are a different kind” When you know someone so well there are words you dare to speak come and take a walk with me down on Harrow Street When you know someone so well there are words you dare to speak come and take a walk with me down on Harrow Street

We all listened when grandma told stories We all laughed when grandpa told jokes We all held on when Lily was diagnosed with cancer and we never lost hope/let go We all ignited when mother and father kissed Under the decorated arch of petunias We all cried as the balloons scattered to the stars that shone over Robin’s funeral We knew we’d all grow old together We’ll all grow old as one We’ll all grow old in the depths of the darkness and the golden sparks of the sun We all cheered when Kate got pregnant it's true that the youth bring joy we all mourned at the death of our cousin was too soon for a high school boy we were scared when my sister got angry we all heard the sirens and the slam of the door we all heard father we he finally cracked like the crockery flung to the floor we don’t speak of that no more 'Cause we’ll all grow old together we’ll all grow old as one we’ll all grow old in the depths of the darkness and the golden sparks of the sun We all sung on Christmas morning to the gifts under the malting tree we all hung on the words of uncle Pete who told tales to the kids on his knee we all knew we had something worth living for and we all had someplace we can something worth giving is worth giving to someone in need even if it's just your hand 'Cause we’ll all grow old together we’ll all grow old as one we’ll all grow old in the depths of the darkness and the golden sparks of the sun We’ll all grow old together we’ll all grow old as one we’ll all grow old in the depths of the darkness
