DAYBREAK

Day breaks, earth shakes, mind aches
Time takes it's toll on the weary traveller
If you come with me you'll see
It's easy to get lost in the ever-after
But at the end of the day
I'm happy living this way

 



DON'T WORRY ABOUT IT

If life is feeling like a nightmare
When it should be feeling like a dream
Take it easy 'cause nothing's as bad as it seems

And if it gets you down when you think about
All the problems that you've got
Remember there's always someone much worse off

'Cause there are a million things
That you could worry about if you wanted to
But life is much easier
When you realise that you don't have to

Don't worry about it
Most problems fade with the rise of the sun
And if no trouble's caused, then there'll be no harm done
Don't worry about it
Most problems fade with the light of day
'Cause life is only a bit of fun anyway

The news can sometimes get to you
You feel it's dangerous to be alive
But you can't believe all that they publicise

'Cause there are a million things
That you could worry about if you wanted to
But life is so much easier
When you realise that you don't have to

CHORUS

Don't worry about it
Most problems fade with the rise of the sun
And if you don't cause trouble, then no harm will ever be done
Don't worry about it
Most problems fade with the light of day
'Cause life is only a bit of fun anyway

 



I CAN'T WAIT TO MEET YOU

I know you're out there somewhere
Just over the horizon
Like the end of a rainbow, so near yet so far

It's strange I should miss you so much
I've never seen you and you've never felt my touch
I'll change that someday

I can't wait to meet you, we've been too long apart
But when we meet it'll be like I've known you from the start
I can't wait to meet you, I know how hard it's been
But you and me, I know we'll be together in the end

I know I'll find you someday
Or maybe you'll find me, I don't know
But I know the day is coming, so I'll carry on

To miss something you've never known
There's nothing that'll make you feel more alone
But I won't be for long

CHORUS

The anticipation weighs down

And sometimes seems too much to take
But I will bear through it for you
No matter how long it may take
I'll make the wait worth the while

I can't wait to meet you, we've been too long apart
But when we meet it'll be like I've known you from the start
I can't wait to meet you
I know that you and me, we'll be together in the end

I can't wait, you and me, we have been too long apart
But when we meet, it'll be like I've known you from the start
I can't wait, you and me, we have been too long apart
But when we meet, it'll be like I've known you...

 



SLEEP

Sleep, the peaceful hideaway
Dream, to send your cares away
Lie in slumbers on the ground
Fly among the purple clouds
And wake to see that all the life around
Cannot be found

But don't you cry, and don't you weep
Just slip into the endless sleep

Leave the busy world behind
Breathe another painful sigh
Bring a consolation prize
Sing this little lullaby
And speak the words you have to say
Before they are no more

But don't you cry, and don't you weep
Just slip into the endless sleep

Sleep, sleep, sleep
Don't weep, weep, weep, weep
Fly, fly, fly
Don't cry, cry, cry, cry

 



ALONE WITH YOU

In a room of strangers I can never feel at ease
I just get tense, and I find it hard to breathe
But when you're there, you bring me air
And you make it a little easier to bear

It's not that I hate people, 'cause that simply isn't true
It's not how many people, it's who
I don't want to isolate myself, I'll go crazy if I do
I just want to be alone with you

They may know who I am, but to me they're just a crowd
No friendly faces among the bright and loud
But when they leave, and it's just me
The silence is even worse a sound

CHORUS x 2

So finally it's just you and me

 



LYING TO MYSELF

Keeping a secret, even one as big as this
Is usually easy for me
But I'm having trouble keeping this one to myself
I need to find some relief

And it's such a shame, and such a tragedy as well
When you think you know yourself and you don't

You, you made me break my rule
You really broke my heart, and you had me fooled
It seems that what I thought I knew
I didn't know - I had no clue
I thought I knew me well, but now I can tell
That I'm no good at lying to myself

Everyone does it, and it's not 'cause they're ashamed
They do it 'cause they're afraid
But I've had enough now, I refuse to live a lie
I'm tired of living this charade

And it's all because of this stupid pride of mine
I let it rule my life - why do I?

Because you, you made me break my rule
You really broke my heart, and you had me fooled
It seems that what I thought I knew
I didn't know - I had no clue
I thought I knew me well, but now I can tell
That I'm no good at lying to myself

CHORUS


 


WONDERKID

Everybody's got to start at the bottom
And slowly work their way up
With perseverance, some talent and luck
One day you'll reach the top

But no one warns you 'bout all the of hard work
All the sweat and the tears
All the struggle and facing your fears
Who knows, it could take years
Or just maybe...

You'll be a hit, and they'll love you to bits
Everybody's praising the wonderkid
You'll be a star and you're gonna go far
But don't get used to it

'Cause even though you'll have the keys to the kingdom
And the world at your feet
When your fifteen minutes are up
You'll be back on the street
Or just maybe...

CHORUS

You'll have fame, you'll be a household name
If you play the game

It's sad, you're a wannabe one day
And a has-been the next
But it could be said that those who chase fame
Deserve all that they get

You were a hit and they loved you for it
Now they love someone else instead
You were a star but you didn't get far
Poor old wonderkid

 



GLASS WORLD

Some feel they should take the wheel

Some will wait their turn
It all depends on how you feel
And how you look at the world

The world looks big through my window
I'm not part of the scene
The world looks small through my mirror
'Cause all I see is me

Such a fragile place
You're almost scared to touch it, just in case it breaks
Breaks upon you

Take a look in the mirror
There's more to life than you think
When you only see what you want to see
Then your world begins to shrink
Take a look out the window
That's not a crack in the sky
It's just a stain on the windowpane
Still the light gets in your eyes

Which side of the glass are you on?
Which world are you a part of?

There's so much more behind the door
If you'd only take a peek
There's new places to be explored
New journey's to take

Such a fragile place
You're almost scared to touch it, just in case it breaks
Breaks upon you

CHORUS

Which side of the glass are you on?
Which world are you a part of?

CHORUS

Which side of the glass are you on?
Which world are you a part of?
Who knows?
That's how it goes
Nobody knows

 



YOU KNEW

A simple song for a complicated feeling
That cannot be described in words
It starts off cold and it slowly burrows deeper
Until it leaves you hollow with the hurt

I knew I'd never kiss you
I knew we'd never be
Even though I understood

I never gave up hope somehow we would
And I think you always knew
You knew it too - thank you

When you finally work it out, it's a terrible conflict
Between the mind that knows and the heart that won't let go
But for all the pain, there were still some tender moments
That I wouldn't change for anything in this world

CHORUS

I knew I'd never kiss you
I knew we'd never be
Even though I understood
I never gave up hope somehow we would
And I guess that I still do
And you always knew, so thank you

 



DOWN DAYS

Why do I feel sad today?
Nothing much has changed since yesterday
And yesterday I felt pretty okay
Must just be one of my down days

I'm never in between
It's either laughter or a scream with me
And I don't see any chance of that changing
These feelings come and go
But it's comforting to know
That when I'm feeling down
Better days will be coming around

The sky, it always stays that milky grey
The sun isn't gone, it's just hiding away
And it wouldn't make much difference if it came out anyway
'Cause it's just one of my down days

I'm never in between
It's either laughter or a scream with me
And I don't see any chance of that changing soon
These feelings come and go
But it's comforting to know
That when I'm feeling down
Better days will be coming around again


 


CHANGE

Time moves on
It's about the only thing that you can depend on
Change - we all change
It may happen overnight, or slowly through the days

So why do you cry?
If you can keep what's best

And let time change the rest

Don't run from change, 'cause you'll never make it far, no
Change has made you who you are
'Cause I like who you are now, and who you were before
And I like who you're becoming even more

You - you can can hide
Go against the flow, swim against the tide
Change will come around
You can try and run, but it'll track you down

BRIDGE

CHORUS x 3


ALL TURNED AROUND

Something's changed since yesterday
And yesterday I felt pretty down
The negativity's left me now,

I'm feeling all turned around

I don't know what's happening

And I'm not gonna stop to ask
I'm gonna hold on to this feeling now

And pray I can make it last

Maybe it's the thought of waking up

To a world that you're in
'Cause that's when it begins

I've been high since I opened up my eyes this morning
I don't know why, but I like the way this day is going
And I know if you ever went away, this magic high would too
'Cause giving me this high is what you do

Something's changed since yesterday
And yesterday I felt pretty down
The negativity's left me now
I'm feeling all turned around

Well, maybe it's the thought of waking up
To a world that you're in
'Cause that's when it begins

I've been high since I opened up my eyes this morning
I don't know why, but I like the way this day is going
And I know if you ever went away, this magic high would too
'Cause giving me this high is what
Giving me this high is what
Giving me this high is what you do

Something's changed since yesterday
And yesterday I felt pretty down
The negativity's left me now
I'm feeling all turned around

 



THE AWAITING GAME

Breathing, working through the evening
Trying to find some space
A quiet resting place I can lay my head

Dreaming, hoping and believing
The day is coming soon
When I've paid my dues and I'm doing what I want to do

'Cause waiting for things to start
Is by far the hardest part of the game
With every photograph you take
Every autograph you fake
You play the game

Losing, fighting the confusion
But still I cannot shake
This feeling that a break is waiting just around the bend

And it's not that I want fame
Just please remember my name
And I'll do the same
There's so many plans to make
So many hands to shake
And I just can't wait
