REMEMBER

Music by Eric Bay-Andersen

Lyrics by Hannah Tyley & Eric Bay-Andersen

Remember, I remember


How we spent the days, the days in bliss


We were so free, free of pain and cruelty


Why I loved you, I wish I knew

It was so real, so unreal

Been there, I wish I'd been there

When you needed, you needed me

I could have helped, helped you find your true self

Someone I've met, but you haven't yet

Maybe someday, someday soon

FALLING

Music by Eric Bay-Andersen
Lyrics by Lara Lynn Hixon & Eric Bay-Andersen

 

They say this road leads to salvation

But who knows if it will?

I'm paralysed by doubt

And the indecision leaves me standing still

I know I can't stay here forever

Is it just fear that's holding me back?

When the end feels close at hand

The colours seem to fade to black

What if I should leap into that wide open space?

Will I crash and burn and be left all alone?

Or be swept up on the wings of grace?

What if I get overwhelmed by my memories and deep regrets?

If I'm falling and I see you below

I just hope I land in your arms like a safety net

You see me smiling every day

But wars are raging in my head

Do I seek a side to join?

Or do I choose to fight alone instead?

Walking this fragile tightrope

Between sane and unwell

Yearning to reach for your hand

But frozen and scared, scared as hell

CHORUS

Please catch me, I'm falling

I need a safe place to land

I can feel myself slipping, baby

Reach out for my hand

Please catch me, I'm falling, falling, falling

27-4-77

Music & Lyrics by Munindran Vasuthavan & Eric Bay-Andersen

27-4-77 - she said the words to me at 9:47
27-4-77 - she said the words to me, and all of a sudden

I knew what she was trying to say
'Cause I had been waiting for all these days
She said it at last

Her joy and happiness was clear as could be
When I said back to her what she said to me

When we were united as one
We had the strength to take on anyone who stood in our way

We came from different worlds
But we hoped that there would be
A little corner we could call our own
Where they would let us be
We travelled so far
I will never understand
In a world where love is so hard to find
Who would wish for it to end?

Everybody said it wasn't to be
And we were the only ones who didn't agree

But we held on as long as we could
'Cause we knew that we had found something good
But it couldn't last

CHORUS x2

27-4-77 - she said the words to me, and I was in heaven

AN ANGEL CRIES

 

Music by Eric Bay-Andersen
Lyrics by Sam Long & Eric Bay-Andersen

 

How slow the fog rolls in

Sounds of the night begin

I kicked an empty can down a long and lonely road

Past boarded windows

A neon sign glows

Ten dollar cover at the Lonesome Lounge tonight

In a back-street dive an angel cries

But she shines while on the stage

When she sings her sad songs

The cold fog rolls away

I'll be watching from my table-for-one

If you ever need convincing

That there's still some beauty

In this world just listen to her sing

Old souls they sound so fine

It gets me every time

I can hear her singing almost everywhere I go

What am I looking for?

Could be behind that door

I just know it's something that I really need to find

In a back-street dive my angel resides

At my table is where you'll find me

But there are still some seats left

For the midnight show, so come join me

For when she arrives on stage tonight

With the spotlight like a halo

You'll believe in beauty

A little more with every single note

She awaits me at the end of a lonely road

She awaits me at the end of a lonely road

She awaits me at the end of a lonely road

She awaits me nightly and I've got a place to go

She awaits me at the end of a lonely road

She awaits me at the end of a lonely road

She awaits me nightly and I've got a place to go

She awaits me at the end of a lonely road

NIGHT FALLS

Music & Lyrics by Fady El Hachem & Eric Bay-Andersen

 

I don't really know what to say

You were hanging around with me

When I saw the light for the first time

You've been messing with my mind

I've poured myself a glass of wine

And I want you to come over

But hurry, 'cause I won't stay sober

When the night falls, I just stumble

I think about the women who have been in my bedroom

And when they close the door my heart crumbles

Makes me question everything I thought I knew

Paper cuts from letters on the table

You were never quite sure if our feelings were stable

I smelled your perfume in the air

Then I saw you standing there

And in the blink of an eye things were changing

I had to free my memories

Say goodbye to what used to be

So you and me could start over

And suddenly I don't feel sober

CHORUS

When the night falls the rules can bend

When the night falls our hearts can mend

When the night falls we let the light in

And that's when good things can begin

CHORUS

FIRST BASE

Music by Eric Bay-Andersen & Anders Bay Jensen
Lyrics by Eric Bay-Andersen

Safe, safe and secure now
There's a way, but I'm not sure I know how

Yet it feels so right

Yeah, it feels so nice
And it reminds me of a time

When I was halfway to paradise

I'm out to play
Been on the bench for long enough

Today's the day
It's time to show them 
what I'm made of

Run, when you meet a catch you can't lose

But I am done, I've met my match and it's you

BRIDGE

CHORUS

So it's as you say, we all play a part

First base isn't all the way, but it's a start

When they call your name, then the pressure's on

Losers run away, but I say “bring it on”

That's how winning is done

CHORUS x2
