  • 02:32 Lyrics Approval
    I’ve been on this narrow ridge before 
    One wrong step sideways and over the edge I go 
    Free falling thrills me, but the landing kills me 
     
    In my room feels like I’m nailed to the wall 
    Acid rain streams through my brain from my toxic thoughts 
    I’m feeling broken, the ghost is calling me again 
     
    I don’t need your approval 
    I want you but you love him, he needs her but she’s in love with me 
    This tangled web of love’s mistaken identity 
    I don’t need your approval, I don’t need your approval 
     
    Everybody’s missing something I know 
    This irrepressible quench to want it all 
    A blind vision that has my soul imprisoned 
     
    I need to love all that I’ve already got 
    When I do what I think is missing, won’t matter a lot 
    This conditioned reality, always gets the better of me 
     
    I don’t need your approval 
    I want you but you love him, he needs her but she’s in love with me 
    The tangled web of love’s mistaken identity 
     
     
     
  • 02:40 Lyrics Under The Bridge
    You call me on the phone, there’s a quiver in your voice 
    You ask if I’m alone, the silence says it all 
    You say sorry you did me wrong and you’re wondering how I’m holding on 
     
    I cried fifty times over, I burned fifty times over, I died fifty times over 
    Now there’s no more tears under the bridge 
     
    Now you long for my touch and my arms were a safe place to be 
    You say that I was meant for you, now that sentiment is haunting you 
    Like broken strings can’t play a tunes, this broken spirit can’t come back to you 
     
    I cried fifty times over, I burned fifty times over, I died fifty times over 
    Now there’s no more tears under the bridge 
    It’s over for me now, your image is on a stone Under the Bridge 
  • 02:54 Lyrics Finally Love
    It was so early on a frosty morning 
    I woke to the sweet smell of nature in your hair 
    You’re sound asleep and I’m rapidly falling 
    I fear to fall too deep, but I’ll just have to risk it 
     
    Finally love is in the right direction 
     
    I roll out of bed, lay on the creaky hardwood 
    I contemplate the rest of the day with you 
    I’m waiting for you to wake like a child on Christmas morning 
    I want to scream my feelings, but now isn’t the time  
     
    Finally love is in the right direction 
     
  • 03:38 Lyrics Melancholy Day
    I don’t wanna talk with anybody, not even you 
    You say I’m being melancholy and that bothers you 
    Cause I’m down all the way 
    I have little to say and I can’t think straight
    I know I need you to stay though 
    One more day 
     
    I peak through the shutters, I see dirty clouds 
    Slow dripping raindrops, trampoline on the soggy grounds 
    And I’m down all the way
    Another rising sun usher time to the day but I’m lost in the shade 
    Of a dark space 
     
    Give me time to unwind, this temporary mood won’t break my stride 
    Melancholy day took me by surprise 
    I don’t wanna talk about it 
     
    I wish I had faith in religion, maybe I could pray 
    Higher power silence, Jesus must be busy today 
    And I’m down all the way
    Another rising sun usher time to the day but I’m lost in the shade 
    Of a dark space 
     
    Give me time to unwind, this temporary mood won’t break my stride 
    Melancholy day took me by surprise 
    I don’t wanna talk about it 
    I need to lie on my bed and clear my head 
    Melancholy day took me by surprise 
     
  • 02:47 Lyrics You Lit A Fire
    You ask me what I love about you, well I love everything 
    I tell you that I can't live without you, you smile and you do your thing 
     
    Girl you are my dreams come true
    For you babe the sky turns blue
    And you lit a fire in my heart 
     
    I couldn't help it falling for you, I knew I would from the start
    You had me addicted to you, it's an addiction I can't fight 
     
    Girl you are my dreams come true
    For you babe the sky turns blue
    And you lit a fire in my heart 
     
    The fear and the pain that once cut my heart like a knife Have now disappeared for you came into my life 
     
    I hear your sweet voice in my head, each moment of the day
    No love compares with your love it scares me to say 
     
    Girl you are my dreams come true
    For you babe the sky turns blue
    And you lit a fire  
     
  • 04:16 Lyrics Communicate
    I want to tell you, how I’m feeling tonight 
    I’m trying to tell you, how I’m feeling tonight 
    I hear the clock tick tock, I look calm but my head’s gonna pop 
    You sit and read your magazine, I’m suffocating while I watch you breathe. Baby!  
     
    Hold me like you mean it baby don’t shut me out 
    Kiss me like you feel it baby don’t shut me out 
    Communicate with me, don’t shut me out 
     
    This one way love train ride you choose to take me through 
    Surely you can find another way to impose your point of view 
    I don’t believe how you can’t see what is happening here with me 
    You get up and walk, refuse to talk, not sure if I can do this anymore. Baby! 
     
    Hold me like you mean it baby don’t shut me out 
    Kiss me like you feel it baby don’t shut me out 
    Communicate with me, don’t shut me out
  • 02:53 Lyrics If We Ever Find The Heaven
    I drive the familiar streets to our favourite places 
    I sit across the cosy café where we used to meet 
    I walk through the urban park to pick you flowers 
    And arrange in a vase that you left behind 
     
    You left me here, but you can always find me near 
     
    I stare at the lonely chair at the dinner table 
    One minus one’s love is a lonesome sound 
     
    I write you messages from a poor man’s poet 
    A nightly ritual that I hide in a drawer 
    So desperate for refuge, I turn to divination 
    The urge for insight to blanket the pain  
     
    You left me here, but you can always find me near 
    If we ever find the heaven, will we ever be together 
  • 03:44 Lyrics It's Enough For Me

    To see you every day
    To love you in every way 
     
    To taste the breath you breathe
    To feel the things you see
    It's enough for me
    Darling I'm content to let things be 
     
    It's not hard to make me glad
    It's not hard to make me sad
    I'm in between the lines
    And you're enough for me 
     
    To have you in my eyes
    To hear your tenders sighs
    It's enough for me
    Darling I'm content to let things be 
     
    It's not hard to make me glad
    It's not hard to make me sad
    I'm in between the lines
    And you're enough for me 
     
     
  • 02:15 Lyrics Park Your Heart
    Will you walk with me for a while? 
    You were standing there, when I caught you smile 
    It’s a sunny, you’re looking fine 
    You got me floating on cloud nine 
     
    You and I share a love and so much more 
    Through the realm of time, on many different shores 
    The essence of you, consumes me so deep right through to my soul 
     
    Park your heart in my heart 
    Taste my love from the honey jar 
    I’ll light a fire for you every night 
    If you park your heart in my heart tonight 
     
    Will you believe in me once again? 
    The notion of being alone drives me insane 
    It’s a manic way to live my day 
    I need you to tell me you’re mine 
     
    Park your heart in my heart 
    Taste my love from the honey jar 
    I’ll light a fire for you every night 
    If you park your heart in my heart tonight 
  • 03:28 Lyrics I Used To Be

    I used to be, a snazzy dresser

    With just one look, I could impress her 

    Traded the mirror, embraced the trails of life 

    The hands of time can be so unkind.

     

    The days are long, the nights are longer

    Emptiness fills and my will gets stronger

    No more persuasion, I wish I knew my fate

    Is it all too late, since love slammed the gate

     

    Gotta lot of lovin, to give you still

    Gotta lot of livin, to live with you still

     

    Self-love’s a drug, a vital transfusion

    With self-worth desire, a sweet blend infusion

    Happiness is, when you sit with me

    Share a cup of tea and you believe in me

     

    Gotta lot of lovin, to give you still

    Gotta lot of livin, to live with you still
