Track Name: Southerlies
White caps litter the ocean
I turn away from the breeze
You say that I'm trying to cause a commotion,
And just like that, you wreck my day with ease.
Oh how did we arrive here
From something so serene?
But we will sure as hell be back again
What an era to die in

I saw the ocean tear apart
The summer blue has gone and made room for the dark
How do you change your tone and temperament so?
Cos suddenly you disappear

On our left young lovers,
Are leaning in for the kill. Save that for home!
On our right some others are laughing,
But you stare down at your meal.
Sometimes silence is comfortable.
But this is not in that vein.
And the silence says everything
When you've got nothing to say
Nothing to say

I saw the ocean tear apart
The summer blue has gone and made room for the dark
How do you change your tone and temperament so?
Cos suddenly you disappear

You'll always feel the panic if you let your sails find the wind of all your hurt
And you'll find me in the traffic with nothing in my eyes if you don't sort out your words
This wind won't blow forever,
So drop your anchors deep
And the unrelenting tide,
Will soon start to recede
If we're alone or if we're together,
There's always air to breathe.
Fill your lungs my dear
Maybe then we'll be happy
Track Name: Coming In From The Cold
I'm sick of watching this all unfold
And where it goes, I don't wanna know
I see it in your eyes, your sordid little alibis
But they're useless. I know exactly where you've been.
Was it worth your while?
You've turned your back on everything you were told
Was it a good time?
I've had enough, now I'm coming in from the cold.
Go back, back to him.
I've had enough, I've had enough. Your love is harrowing.
Your grinning ear to ear, I wanna shake you, make you disappear.
A dashing grin could make you weak.
Was it worth your while?
You've turned your back on everything you were told.
Was it a good time?
I've had enough, now I'm coming in from the cold.
Something's rotten in your twisted state of mind
But I'll leave common sense alone.
Cos though you're not here, I'll be waiting at the gate.
Calling please come home
Please come home
Track Name: Feelings Won't Keep Me Warm
Our love was never an illusion
The happiness we shared was a good enough reason to say
I wanted to be there for you
You were my queen and I was your king
For what it's worth I would have given you anything to see
You smile at me one last time
Just pretend that you still need me

But if I turn it round
Wake up a ghost in town
Then I would take it but you wouldn't listen
I could take it all to the wailing wall
But against my better sense I just going to go this alone

And so what if I'm nervous
It never felt that right before
I've got to hold on to these feelings
But the feelings won't keep me warm

I was loyal and honest
I told you I promised I'd be there for you
(Where were you?)
I wanted to fix this
I swear that I tried
But I have made up my mind

I tried and tried but for the first time in my life
I spoke my mind, I realised the only thing left was to say goodbye
Cos I broke your heart too many times and I want to apologise
For all the hurt I caused
For every little thing I've done

Don't hold on to me
All I ever wanted was for you to find your happy ending
Please don't hold on to me
All I ever wanted was for you to find your happy ending
Track Name: The Space Between My Head And My Heart
Staring at the walls of an empty house wondering how I let you down
If I went back would I do the same?
If I had a second chance would I even change?

Will this requiem speak of all this mess I'm in?
It's hopeless

Influenced by the world around me
Fitting in was my only concern
Happiness just around the corner
Maybe then I'll find that love

Will this requiem speak of all this mess I'm in?
It's hopeless

I long for the day I can rest
But my head won't second guess my heart
And the words you speak
But I'm scared of what they'll think

I can't be who I want to be
How can I let an opinion take this from me?

In the space between my head and my heart
Lie the reasons why I'll always fail
And when I think that I cannot be loved
Please remind me that your cross prevails
