Track Name: No Coming Back
I would have told you twenty times
That what can live must also die
I can tell you're counting down
To self destruct what they have found

Since we were playing in the grass
You knew your solitary path
As for the voices in your head
They speak of terror shock and dread

And they call your name
And they scream in pain

I searched all of the spaces
That you might have left your thoughts but lost them
Will you find your way?
Will you go back some day?

Wasting time was on our minds
With loneliness our only lover
Not afraid to die
More scared of being alive

I've seen you tossing in your sleep
I've seen your eyes fall to your feet
No friends or family to call
Their voices trembling your walls

And they call your name
And they scream in pain

I searched all of the spaces
That you might have left your thoughts but lost them
Will you find your way?
Will you go back some day?

Wasting time was on our minds
With loneliness our only lover
Not afraid to die
More scared of being alive

I saw your colours fade to grey
I watched that smile waste away
And when that heart beat drops to flat
No hope, no love, no coming back.
Track Name: Saffire
Don't take this personally
But I fall in love with everything
And I fell in love with you

Don't take these words to heart
As soon as it starts it will fall apart
Cause I never follow things through

Don't try to hold on tight
Just sit back and enjoy the ride for now
Because it's all you can do

Forever is a really long time
I'll be yours and you'll be mine
Happy endings don't exist like this
So go on, prove me wrong this time

You say let's take this slow
But don't look now cause it's go, go, go
And I only want this with you

I'll make you lose your mind
Cause I'll blame you for every time
cause I, that's just what I do

Don't think on this too hard
Cause if you do you wont get to far
Cause I, I'm only in this to lose

Forever is a really long time
I'll be yours and you'll be mine
Happy endings don't exist like this
So go on, prove me wrong this time

Here we go, here we go, let me go.

Forever is a really long time
I'll be yours and you'll be mine
Happy endings don't exist like this
So go on, prove me wrong this time
Track Name: Cactus
Eight years old with nothing but time up her sleeve
She dreamed of a world filled with depth and mystery
And dad doesn't care cause mum left long, long ago
Maybe tomorrow, maybe the next day she'll let this life go

And some say the devil follows her around all day
I think he'd keep his distance
Boys and barbie dolls never took her direction away
I told her I'd listen

She took my hand and we flew
Over vast plain deserts and mountain blues
And dreams are made of flesh and bone
She told me "Keep them safe from what's in the world."
Just a girl

Ten years later she's a woman with a plan
To build a wall and keep out heartbreak while she can
And even at eighteen with fire in her heart
A burning ambition to master an art.

And some say the devil follows her around all day
I think he'd keep his distance
And pipes and alcohol never took her attention away
Still I kept on listening

She took my hand and we flew
Over vast plain deserts and mountain blues
And dreams are made of flesh not what we own
She told me "Dream on dreamer, we're both in the world."

And maybe I'm choking on the smoke in my lungs
Please just tell me I'm going to a better place when I'm done
She took off my mask and said this ain't your last goodbye
I'll see you on the other side

She took my hand and we flew
Over vast plain deserts and mountain blues
And dreams are made of flesh and bone
She told me "Keep them safe from what's in the world."
Just a girl
Track Name: Almighty; Alone
Your head so high up in the clouds
You need to be brought back down
So vain. So right. You can't be wrong
Farewell, goodbye, consider me gone

Up on your pedestal by yourself
Feeling almighty; alone
You rejected everyone else
Further the climb, the further the fall

Conceit and lies to hide behind
All this just shields an empty mind
So vain. So dull. You just can't see
What happens to those that are wrong by me

Up on your pedestal by yourself
Feeling almighty; alone
You rejected everyone else
Further the climb, the further the fall

And I know I'm not the only one
Who won't miss you when you're gone
Track Name: Fifteen
I think I'm normal most the time
Got normal problems on my mind
But sometimes I come home late at night
I see strange men kiss her goodbye

And I can understand the vodka in her hand
Helps her get by
And she can't understand the pills in her hand
Make me question why

She walks out the door with money in her hand
Buttons up her shirt like she had planned
Not once did she notice me watching him leave
Kids my age are out getting drunk
And I'm just looking out for my mum
I'm not stupid and I'm not naive
But I'm only fifteen

Mum can't you see what you're doing to me
It's an endless cycle of probability
I'll probably get divorced and married again three times
I'll probably leave my children wondering why

And they won't understand the vodka in my hand
Helps me get by
And they won't understand the pills in my hand
Make me feel alive

She walks out the door with money in her hand
Buttons up her shirt like she had planned
Not once did she notice me watching him leave
Kids my age are out getting drunk
And I'm just looking out for my mum
I'm not stupid and I'm not naive
But I'm only fifteen

And you weren't there on Christmas day
'cause you were too busy out getting hazed
To think about what you had back home
Do you think about my little brothers?
I told my sister I was sure you loved her
Do you think about what you've got back home?

And they don't understand the vodka in your hand
Help you get by
And they don't understand the pills in your hand
Make you feel alive

She walks out the door with money in her hand
Buttons up her shirt like she had planned
Not once did she notice me watching him leave
Kids my age are out getting drunk
And I'm just looking out for my mum
I'm not stupid and I'm not naive
But I'm only fifteen
Track Name: Heart Carver
This is the last thing I'm gonna say
So listen while I speak clear
You knew it was over
When you walked away from here

Now you're saying that you wanna be back by my side
But you waited too long before swallowing your pride

Don't forget, don't forget
When you're outside looking in
Don't forget, don't forget
What we could have been
Don't forget, don't forget
This bitter twisted taste
Don't forget, don't forget
The way it feels when you see my face

This is the last time I'll let you say you love me
So listen while I speak clear
Cause I know I'm not the only one
My dear

Now you're trying to find your way back to my heart
When you're the one that walked away without a scar


Don't forget, don't forget
When you're outside looking in
Don't forget, don't forget
What we could have been
Don't forget, don't forget
This bitter twisted taste
Don't forget, don't forget
The way it feels when you see my face

Don't forget
When you're outside looking in
Don't forget
What we could have been
Don't forget
This bitter twisted taste
Don't forget
The way it feels when you see my face

Now you're outside looking in
Don't forget, don't forget
When you think about what could have been
Don't forget, don't forget
When you think about this bitter taste
Don't forget, don't forget
When you think about my pretty face
Don't forget, don't forget
