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

Walking Away 02:59
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

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

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.
