Peter 03:05
When you see my face you smile have you been listening all the while do you know me can you show me What are you thinking in there I hope you know that I care Whats inside you what can I do Do you know who I am and if you do do you wonder where I am Do you know who I am and if you do do you
2.
Empty House 02:51
Were the feelings much too great That we couldn’t communicate It wasn’t that we didn’t care The courage to just wasn’t there We’re all talking around things we mean to say Don’t make a sound it will fade away But it’s making me crazy I feel like I’m obsessed Just seeing you daily And knowing that you’re so upset We’re all talking around things we mean to say Don’t make a sound it will fade away Like a loud sound in an empty house It echoes on and on What we need to talk about Would surely let the feelings out But the rules that we abide Hide vulnerability inside We’re all talking around things we mean to say Don’t make a sound it will fade away Like a loud sound in an empty house It echoes on and on It echoes on and on

Wasting Time 02:38
Walking around rying to find where I left myself Wondering why I even tried to let myself Do the thinking’ There I go Talking again about me Am I wasting your time If I go back Maybe I’ll see where I went wrong Losing track Maybe I was off track along There I go Talking again about me Am I wasting your time Though the distance makes me sad I might be missing things I never had Thinking out loud wishing you could be there for me Reminding myself All that I have is a memory There I go Talking again about you Am I wasting my time time Wasting your time Wasting my time

Grey Sky 03:02
Blue sky is gone Here comes the grey and the rain is coming on I think it’s gonna be a long long time Before we see the sun shine That’s alright with me Sometimes the summer heat and I disagree It’s not like I’m from a very warm place And the rain on my face reminds me of home Chorus; Blue Sky turning grey Looks like it’s gonna be another beautiful rainy day A storm’s coming in With rain so cold You feel it through your skin I used to hate it when The weather got this way But now I love to watch the trees sway The wind is winding through But it’s not strong enough To bring me back to you At least we know that we found shelter from our storm While we needed to keep warm Chorus x2 ½

Little Voice 03:08
It’s just a little voice Doesn’t seem like a choice Just a little nudge a slight budge Against the noise It breaths into you Shows you what you should do You can run around and shut it down but it’s true I should have kissed him But I didn’t want to make a scene I never knew how much I’d miss him Or what this day would mean So don’t walk away Say what you mean to say Hope you don’t make the same mistakes That I made And don’t tell yourself It’s al in your head That whisper now Becomes a shout You’ll regret Oh, so many things I didn’t tell him I didn’t want to make him cry I wish that I’d just held him I didn’t know it was goodbye It’s just a little voice Doesn’t seem like a choice Just a little nudge a slight budge Against the noise And don’t tell yourself It’s al in your head That whisper now Becomes a shout You’ll regret

There’s not a day I Don’t miss you at all Life’s like back ice You don’t see it till you fall Wish you were here, I know you’re not To hold me close, I know you can’t To love m still, I know you did But you’re gone Wish I could say things I haven’t said before But the truth is There’s days I can barely get up off this floor Wish you were here, I know you’re not To hold me close, I know you can’t To love m still, I know you did But you’re gone There’s not a day That I don’t think of you No choice I make I don’t wonder what you’d do What would you think of me x2 What would you think of me x4 Wish you were here, I know you’re not To hold me close, I know you can’t To love m still, I know you did But you’re gone X2

Take me out of this misery I’m only hurting myself I know it loves company but It isn’t good for my health Cause the same words Keep going round and round in my head Never sane words And they’re better left unsaid I might need just a little help to Turn the other cheek I know it’s a sign of strength but It’s got me feeling so weak Cause the same words Keep going round and round in my mind Never sane words And they’re usually unkind Oh, I know I must change Oh, I must stop Cause 5 o’clock somewhere Seems to come a little earlier each day And the sorrows I’ve been trying to hide Never seem to float away I tell myself that it’s no big deal Whatever gets through the day but I don’t know another way to feel I guess that isn’t OK Cause the same words Keep going round and round in my mind Never sane words And they’re usually unkind Oh, I know I must change Oh, I must stop Cause 5 o’clock somewhere Seems to come a little earlier each day And the sorrows I’ve been trying to hide Never seem to float away

I’m not what you planned No dream you had I’m nothing on your list Nothing you had wished Push me away Tell me not to stay Not to tie you down But I’m still around Chorus; I’m better for you Than you know I’m better for you than you know You see all my faults and the things I lack but I feel the way you kiss me back no matter what you say I know someday You’ll hold me close You just don’t know Chorus; I’m better for you Than you know I’m better for you than you know Don’t be so sure What you’re looking for You can’t be sure enough When it comes to love You just hold on tight If it feels right Don’t push me away You know I’ll stay Chorus; I’m better for you Than you know I’m better for you than you know x2

Fade Away 03:57
We’ve all been let down Been pushed around It feels like you have no choice We’ve all been left out We’ve all wanted to shout’ I’m here and I have a voice Chorus; Don’t let me fade away I just want to say A difference was made By the role I played We’ve all made mistakes We’ve all had bad breaks but you learn And you try to grow We’ve all lost someone and come undone But it time I hope you know You don’t let them fade away Attention must be paid to the role they played and the difference they made I don’t know much but I know how to love I don’t know much, but I knew your love, I knew your love I won’t let you fade away, attention will be paid To the role you played and the difference in my life you made Won’t let you fade away, won’t you fade away x2

This Is It 03:38
This is it, this is life Somebodies Mum Somebodies Wife Spent my life looking for love. This is it This is here, this is now Don’t need to worry About how To always make the next decision. This is it Chorus; I know how quickly this all can go I know you know how quickly this all can go This is real , this is home Don’t have to feel so alone This was all I ever wanted. This is it This is life, this is love And I know that’s enough Don’t have to feel so haunted. This is it Chorus; I know how quickly this all can go I know you know how quickly this all can go Repeat first verse

Next Year 03:59
Next Year I have cried my last tear Over you this year I have tried so hard Don’t wanna try so hard next year Next year I will listen to my heart Next year I will finish what I start I’ll do all the things I said I’ll do I’ll do them without you I have cried my last tear Over you this year I have tried so hard It shouldn’t be so hard Next year I will learn to speak my mind Next year I don’t know what I will find But I know it’s not too late to try I won’t let my life just pass me by Next year I will listen to my heart Next year I will finish what I start I’ll do all the things I said I’ll do I’ll do them without you
