Lyrics

"This Is War"

Give me a reason
Why I should let you in
When you’ve felt the touch
Of another lovers skin
Can’t go to sleep
When I lay in my bed
I’m dreaming of you
And your new lover

Hold on, hold on
Hold on, hold on
Can’t you see what this is?
This is war

Give me a reason
To open up my heart
When you’ve all but put out
My spark
Can got to sleep
When I lay in my bed
I’m dreaming of you
And your new lover

Hold on, hold on
Hold on, hold on
Can’t you see what this is?
This is war

Hold on, hold on
Hold on, hold on
Can’t you see what this is?

Hold on, hold on
Hold on, hold on
Can’t you see what this is?
This is war

"Closing Time"

Was it you who
Said come over?
Dosen’t matter
Cause if you want to
Is this the real life?
I don’t know

I’ve got a twelve speed
I’m gonna ride it
Through the hills and
Through the mountains
Is this the real life?
I don’t know

Weren’t the one
Who stayed till closing time
Why do we find it hard
To break the ties that bind us
You had my attention
All night

As I lie here
I get closer
I start to see you
In a different light dear
Is the real life?
I don’t know

But if I cave in
I’d feel the earth move
If just for a second
Then for me and you
You

Weren’t the one
Who stayed till morning time
Why do we find it hard
To break the ties that bind us
You had my attention
All night

Weren’t the one
Who stayed till morning time
Why do we find it hard
To break the ties that bind us
You had my attention
All night

"Wayfaring Stranger"

I am a poor wayfaring stranger
Whilst journeying through this world of woe
No there’s no sickness, nor toil nor danger
In that bright and
To which I go

I’m going there
To see my father
I’m going there
No more to roam
I’m only going
Over Jordan
I’m only go, go
Going over home

I know dark clouds will gather over me
I know my way is rough and steep
Yet beautiful fields lie just before me
Where weary eye’s no more will weep

I’m going there
To see my mother
I’m going there
No more to roam
I’m only going
Over Jordan
I’m only go, go
Going over home

I want to wear
That crown of glory
When I get to the promised land
And I want to shout “Salvation story”
In concert with the blood washed band

I’m going there
To see my mother
I’m going there
No more to roam
I’m only going
Over Jordan
I’m only go, go
Going over home

Cause I’m only go
Going over home

"Oh Father"

Am I bound to leave?
Though my feet are steeped in
The tall grass and the streams
This place has so much meaning
It’s what you do to me
Though you don’t mean it
And now I’m not at peace

Guess I should have seen it coming
How our young love when awry

Oh Father (Father)
Oh Father (Father)

It’s times like this
I’ll tell you in complete confidence
She opened a rift
Now my heart is falling out
Oh father (Father)
Am I doing you proud?
Oh mother (Mother)
You were always around

Guess I should have seen it coming
How our young love when awry

Oh Father (Father)
Oh Father (Father)

The day she left I felt a weight gathering in my chest
But you had my back, my family, I’m thankful for that
So this is my stage, this is my voice, this is my time, this is my choice
I appreciate all that you’ve done. My mother, my brothers, my sister, oh father.

Oh Father (Father)
Oh Father (Father)

Father (Father)
Father (Father)
Father (Father)
Father (Father)
Father (Father)

"I’d Go Anywhere"

Albi
You’ve got me wrapped round your finger
But you don’t seem to care
Wasen’t like this when we started
But now I’m here to stay

You’ve got a hold on me
I’m in love, can’t you see?
I’d go anywhere
If you were there
Yes I would

Amy
You had me right from the beginning
But now I just don’t know
We’re not the same when we’re apart
Now we’re drifting away

You’ve got a hold on me
I’m in love, can’t you see?
I’d go anywhere
If you were there
Yes I would

You’ve got a hold on me
I’m in love, can’t you see?
I’d go anywhere
If you were there
Yes I would

You’ve got a hold on me
I’m in love, can’t you see?
I’d go anywhere
If you were there
Yes I would

"Waiting For A Train"

I’ve been waiting by the station
I’ve been here for a while
I think you missed that train
Taking your precious time

As I ride I feel restless and I think
I am done
You took one step forward then two steps back
It’s hopeless
So I am

Waiting for a change to come
To come along and lift you up
To see your stranded would be a start

And I don’t mean to bring up the past, ut I’m curious
Bo you now see how you made me feel ay back then?
And I know I’m not blameless for my contribution
But do you see me here? I’ll say it loud and clear
I’m sorry for what I might have said.
So I am.

Waiting for a change to come
To come along and lift you up
To say your sorry would be a start

And it’s hard to
Believe you
When your the only one saying
How you’ve changed
You’ve been born again
Since the last time I saw ya
But I’m sad to know
That my trust in you is gone
So prove me wrong.

Waiting for a change to come
To come along and lift you up
To say your sorry would be a start
Bee the start

"It Ain’t Easy"

Life can change in an instant
Even just for a moment
I’m alive
I’m alive

When I come I’ll be running
And I won’t stop till I hit the ground
The ground

It ain’t easy
It ain’t easy
To be loved by you

It ain’t easy
It ain’t easy
To be one with you

Your the one
Who gave me the notion
To travel seas
To travel oceans

Your the one
Who made me want to
Get up and leave my
Precious home

It ain’t easy
It ain’t easy
To be loved by you

It ain’t easy
It ain’t easy
To be one with you

When I wake
Your the one I’m thinking of
When I sleep
Your the one I’m dreaming of
I cannot wait to cross that border
I’ve got to make up for all that lost time

It ain’t easy
It ain’t easy
To be loved by you

It ain’t easy
It ain’t easy
To be one with you

Please dear wait I’m coming for you
Please dear wait I’m coming for you
Please dear wait I’m coming for you
Please dear wait I’m coming for you
Please dear wait I’m coming for you
Please dear wait I’m coming for you

It ain’t easy
It ain’t easy
To be loved by you

It ain’t easy
It ain’t easy
To be one with you

It ain’t easy
It ain’t easy
To be loved by you

It ain’t easy
It ain’t easy
To be one with you
