about

I started writing this album over 2 years ago and decided it was about time to finally record it. It isn't the slickest album ever produced but it was all recorded and mixed by me, in my living room, using one microphone, a guitar and me.

Track Name: Surrender
Verse 1
Could I just surrender, would you let me cry
Could you hold my temper, and let me see the light
Coz’ all these things I’d do, just to have you here
Moving on is torture, but just might get me through

Verse 2
When heartache comes to call, it’s hard to make it, it seems so dark
When heartache comes to call, in times of struggle, it gets you down

Bridge
And I’d walk, through the darkest nights and I’d talk just to you
Cause I’d walk just to make you smile, just to be with you
But I must let go and keep it strong, you broke my temper, done me wrong
And I see you break me then move straight on, you said you cared, but it’s one last time

Chorus
I’m gone, I’m gone. I’ll surrender and move right on
I’m gone, I’m gone. Leave that life, and leave you ‘cause
I’m gone, I’m gone
Track Name: All For You
Verse 1
They say there’s only one love, they say there’s only one chance
I think I lost that one again and I know

Pre-Chorus
It’s only me, there’s only you, it’s always you, it’s all for you

Chorus
They say my rivers run dry, got to rest my body, got to rest my soul tonight (It’s all for you)
They say emotions are high, got to rest my body, got to rest my soul tonight (It’s all for you)

Bridge
They say that rest’s no good, they know it’s all for you
They know my mind’s in two, they know it’s all for you
They say that rest’s no good, they say they knew she would
They know it’s all for you

Verse 2
I think that was a last chance, the think that time was my last
I sit here writing these songs again, and I know it’s all for you

Chorus
They say my rivers run dry, got to rest my body, got to rest my soul tonight (It’s all for you)
They say emotions are high, got to rest my body, got to rest my soul tonight (It’s all for you)

Bridge
They say that rest’s no good, they know it’s all for you
They know my mind’s in two, they know it’s all for you
They say that rest’s no good, they say they knew she would
They know it’s all for you

Chorus
They say my rivers run dry, got to rest my body, got to rest my soul tonight (It’s all for you)
They say emotions are high, got to rest my body, got to rest my soul tonight (It’s all for you)
Track Name: Become Like All
Verse 1
I claim that I want nothing more
Than to be alone with all my thought
Then why do I feel pain inside
When you ignore my sullen cries

Verse 2
I try to lie for just myself
Convincing me beyond all help
Pray for me before I fall
Into this trap, become like all

Chorus
Become like all
Believing that I am complete
When alone I’ve a soul to keep
Track Name: Addicted
Verse 1
You seem to taunt me, when I think I’m nearly through
You know what to say to me, and always what to do
Just when I think I’m free, I feel the hooks sink in
Once again I’m caught on you, and forgotten everything
All the nights of anger, and saying that I’m done
Disappear in moments, click your fingers and I run
Too long to say you cared, when you through it all away
Once again I’m caught on you, and forgotten yesterday

Pre-Chorus
Even though when I think of you, I live through all this pain
You’re like my secret drug, I’m addicted once again
I see me fall apart, I can never get enough
Last night I was hating you, but there’s always one more chance, just another

Verse 2
Every time that I think you care, you leave me in the lurch
My trust so broken yeah, it can barely even hurt
I know you fake it, but it always seem so true
Maybe you should change careers, there’s an Oscar there for you
Too late to apologise, even though you never would
Get your kicks from taunting me, when I thought you never could
I write these songs for you instead of saying how I feel
Once again I’m caught on you, like a sickness I am ill

Chorus
I die every time I see you, and I cry, change time I’d never meet you
I lie when I say I’m ok, I lie every time I start a new day
Just need someone to save me
I die every time I see you, and I cry, change time I’d never meet you
I lie when I say I’m ok, it’s just a temporary lie
Just to keep me going through the days

Caught on you x 3
Track Name: Take My Hand
Verse 1
Take my hand, guide me through these darkened lands
Be my strength, I’ll be your man
Hold me close, whisper all your darkest fears
Hold me close, I’ll dry your tears
Stay with me, after everything we’ve done
We just know it can’t be won

Pre-Chorus
And I see it’s over, but I’ll still feel the same
I could be your lover, not the one that got away
But I’ve seen us change, we’ve gone so far
It’s over now and you’ve left your scars on me
There’s another side to me

Chorus
I find the way, the way you lie to me
So hard to take, there’s another side to me
I find it strange, that you only lie to me
So hard to take, there’s another side to me

Verse 2
I will try, taking everything I know
Do my best, and try to grow
Change for me, not to prove that you were right
But to show that I can fight
Every time, we would list all of our fears
Losing you was always near

Pre-Chorus 2
And I see you moved on, you were quick enough to change
After everything you told me, in so many different ways
But I should of guessed, this ain’t a first
You’ve broken hearts, more than any I will see
Just another lie to me

Bridge
I find the way, you lie so strange
I find the way, you lie so strange

Pre-Chorus 3
And I see it’s over, but you wanted me to change
After all that I’ve been thinking, I can see that you’re deranged
But it’s gone too far, we had our time
I’m moving on, clear of all your lies to me
There’s another side to me

Chorus
I find the way, the way you lie to me
So hard to take, there’s another side to me
I find it strange, that you only lie to me
So hard to take, there’s another side to me
Track Name: The Lives I'll Never Know
Verse 1
Everything I told you was the truth, I couldn’t even lie just once. Even in our times of sadness, the little things would mean so much
If you could be the only thing I loved, then that’d be fine by me. Spend our lives together, float away into the sea

Verse 2
Everything I told you was a lie, I couldn’t bare to see you down. I give it all to see you smile, to take away that little frown
All of those little lies ive told, I didn’t think they’d hurt so much. Turn this love to heartache, felt with every touch

Verse 3
Neither life I’ll ever know, without the words to say to you. For me they’ll exist forever, if only you knew too
I’ll keep these little thoughts my own, and we can go our separate ways
Tonight I’ll sit and wonder, will we ever meet again
Track Name: This Ain't A Goodbye, This Is Good Riddance
Verse 1
I leapt into an unknown world, to give my mind a taste
To see if you could set me free from endless burning memories
I gave my heart, I gave my trust, to you who I adored
And everything you said to me, I believed in evermore
Alone again, pent up with rage, re-found my broken trust
If only I had seen this pain, I’d let my thoughts burn to the ground

Chorus
This ain’t a goodbye, but I won’t be seeing you again
You’ve burnt me down, just so you know, this is good fucking riddance to you
This ain’t a goodbye, after everything you’ve done
I’ll wipe the memories, just so you know, this is good fucking riddance to you

Verse 2
You spread your legs and spread your lies, like it was all the same
But every night you’d be there, fucking him again
You told me I was everything and that you couldn’t live
If I weren’t there beside you, let’s hope this lie will stick
We planned a world where we were one, and never set apart
The hopeless dreams, naivety, endless, never real

Bridge
Once again I roam, surrounded by the dark
Amongst a world of broken dreams and many broken hearts
I’ve come along to join them, I’ve been here once before
Not again to leave this place, settled, no remorse

Chorus
This ain’t a goodbye, but I won’t be seeing you again
You’ve burnt me down, just so you know, this is good fucking riddance to you
This ain’t a goodbye, after everything you’ve done
I’ll wipe the memories, just so you know, this is good fucking riddance to you
This ain’t a goodbye, but I won’t be seeing you again
You’ve burnt me down, set me down to the ground
Track Name: Forget The Memories
Verse 1
To think of trust I gave to you, broken down with all the lies you
(I know I was naïve to trust in you)
Told to me, I fell for you, with every kiss inside my dream
(I was yours I gave all I know to you)
You torture me, but can’t yet see, you let me down too many times to heal
(With your lies, once again you broke me down)

Chorus
Can someone rescue me from all these lies you breathe
And I can see, that we’re just along the way
But you won’t rescue me, from monotony
And I can see, that you weren’t there for me
And it breaks me when I tell it but I can feel in my heart. You weren’t there, I can feel it
All these plans we made together now nothing but a joke. You weren’t there, I can feel it

Verse 2
I can picture talks of what’s to come, our future hangs on every word you
(Seeing things that my mind will rage against)
Say to me, you still feel love, but nothings how you wanted it to be
(Your last words resonate in all my dreams)

Chorus
Can someone rescue me from all these lies you breathe
And I can see, that we’re just along the way
But you won’t rescue me, from monotony
And I can see, that you weren’t there for me
And I told you that you broke me, and you never even cared. You weren’t there, I can feel it
All the nights we spent together was nothing but a dream. You weren’t there, I can feel it

Bridge
I can feel it, rescue me from lies you breathe, yeah
(Naïve to trust in you)
I can feel it, broken dreams not there for me, yeah
(All I know to you)
I can feel it, that night you said you left me, echoes through every thought
Alone, a washed with memories, blame myself for every cause
Replay, I still don’t get it, I thought you still wanted more
Goodbye, forget the memories. I can feel it (x3)
Goodbye, forget the memories
