Track Name: How Wonderful You Are
How Wonderful You Are

I take small steps. I am careful.
There are Eggshells. Underneath us.
Will we make it? you do not make a sound

You’re a clay pot, you are decorated,
beautiful, and ornate.
I will hold you, I hope you will not break.

I see shadows. I move slowly.
There is someone else. between us.
Did you see her? You do not make a sound.

You’re a statue that I carved of you,
around the time we first met
So I never will forget…

How wonderful you are
I don’t wanna let you go
I don’t wanna let you go
How wonderful you are
But you never want to celebrate it, do you

I keep walking through our history.
There is so much here beneath us.
Do you feel it? You do not make a sound.

I remember conversations we had,
word for word they come back
If I told you d’you think that you’d react

How wonderful you are
I don’t wanna let you go
I don’t wanna let you go
How wonderful you are
But you never want to celebrate it, do you

I keep moving. I am running.
There’s a forest floor beneath us.
Can you hear it? Cracking/breaking with each step

Now your statue’s looming down on me
Blocks the light, I lose my feet,
and something drags me underneath.

Everything you’ve ever given me
Feels like I stole it now, stole it now
Everything you’ve ever done for me
I don’t deserve it now. I don’t deserve it now.

How wonderful you are
I don’t wanna let you go
So I’ll never let you know
How wonderful you are
But you never want to celebrate it, do you
Track Name: Walking Away
Walking Away

It was as if I had been shot.
Something seared through and left a hole.

I was left stranded, thinking what to do next…

Walking away
I felt light and free
Walking away
I’d taken a risk
Walking away
Did you see me?
I was walking away from this mess

It was a crystal in my mind
It shone a perfect blue in the light
Did someone scratch it with a knife?
Is this what happened on that night?

Walking away
I felt light and free
Walking away
Changed Everything
Walking away
Did you see me?
I was walking away from this mess
Walking away

Yes I could stroll out into the night.
And find another by my side.
I’d be forever aching
No she could never satisfy
I say this ‘cos I’m floating
Though I’m still tied to you
Track Name: The House Is Burning Down (My Love)
The House Is Burning Down (My Love)

Maybe I should have spoke to you
Maybe I should’ve phoned
But the house was burning down my love
There was no one else around

There’s something in the bushes
There’s someone on my mind
Is it really true dear?
We’re running out of time

Where d’you think we’re going
Do you even care?
The house is burning down my love
You’re still fiddling with your hair

We have to run for cover
We’re supposed to move right now
Don’t pick up your belongings
We have to do this now

The house is burning down my love
Track Name: Only You Know
Only You Know


Falling down is so very hard
when you’ve got no one,
and nothing left,
and no one here to hold on to.
Hold on to what the day will bring
and don’t assume you’ve gotta win.

Learn to live for the love of life,
not bigger displays and brighter lights.
Only time will tell where your path will lead,
there’s nothing gained from begging please.
The only thing I’m sure of here is
one day we’re all gonna leave.

When the wind blows, everything goes.
You won’t be here long, don’t just sing a long.
Only you know.

Know your truth,
don’t let anyone from anywhere with anything come in between.
These walls won’t fall ‘til you stand up tall, climb above, rise to your call.
All you have to fight for are your own beliefs.

When the wind blows, everything goes.
You won’t be here long, don’t just sing a long.
Only you know.

A photograph you found illuminates like candlelight.
A memory you lost flickers gently into sight.
Listen to your heart, but not only in the night
‘cos sometimes when it’s dark,
nothing seems right.
nothing seems right

I’ll hold you up and
then you can see over the wall
I’d love to say I could,
but I can’t help you if you fall
Listen to your heart, but not only in the night
‘cos sometimes when it’s dark,
nothing seems right
nothing seems right
nothing seems right
nothing seems right

Only you know, what’s worth fighting for.
