Track Name: Birdcage
I fashioned a birdcage
Of the most intricate form
It was made from your love
To protect me from harm
Your personal plaything
You use me like a toy
But you grow to despise
The bird who won’t fly

Sing canary sing
If you’re good then I might let you in
To the passion that burns in my heart
And that’s just the start
But I won’t give you anything
Sing canary sing
If you’re good then I might let you in
To the passion that burns deep within Sing canary sing
And then I’ll begin My hatred caresses your skin
To strip you of everything This birdcage you now live within
Will hide all my sins
Track Name: Skywalker
It’s a tightrope walk on a knife’s edge honey,

And you can play that game, but it won’t be funny,
For long….
But when she’s high, she’s a Skywalker,

It doesn’t matter, matter
Just focus your mind on the wire ahead,

It doesn’t matter,

But it’s a long way down,
So you place your foot, to assess the tension,

And convince yourself, to continue knowing
It’s wrong….
But when she’s high, she’s a Skywalker,

It doesn’t matter,
Just focus your mind on the wire ahead,

It doesn’t matter,
But it’s a long way down,
What a spectacular performance,

Though there will be, no net for her,

Such a spectacular performance,

Who’s going to brake her fall,

This time, Skywalker,
But when she’s high, she’s a Skywalker,

Just focus your mind, on the wire ahead,

It doesn’t matter,

Balancing high above the world tonight,

Again,
Track Name: Why Does It Hurt?
I don’t really care about anyone else but me
And anything you wanna do to help, well that’s for free
I don’t need to listen, coz I’ve seen it before
I don’t wanna know what you are fighting for
Coz I’m free to do what I want and get whatever I can

Why does it hurt? Why does it keep me on the other side?
You know I’ll always justify what I do.
Why does it hurt? Why can’t I reach what I’ve been looking for?
The one that you just can’t ignore,
Who is free to do what they want and take whatever they can.

You know I’m pretty clever and I’m never gonna act like you
If you sharing without caring then I’m gonna stick to you like glue
You won’t catch me trying to give it away
I’m scared of losing out, so I’m happy to stay
Where I’m free to do what I want and get whatever I can

I can’t believe that your world is not like mine
So I’ll lie to deceive, then take everything I find
You know I'm pretty clever so I'm never gonna act like you
Track Name: Fireball
Somebody pulled the blinds on the sunshine today
And I won’t tell a living soul, why the world’s gone grey
Who knew that you had that power?
You’re the one…. who can turn out the sun
Fireball, don’t go out, rage with all your might
Keep alive, this fragile love, keep it burning, keep it burning bright
Bruises come at night……..
Watching from a distance, I wanted you to stay
Am I just another girl you met, you love me so you say
How could I let this thing happen?
You’re the one…. who can turn out the sun
Fireball, don’t go out, rage with all your might
Keep alive, this fragile love, keep it burning, keep it burning bright
Bruises come at night……..
You’re the one…. who can turn out the sun
Fireball, don’t go out, rage with all your might
Keep alive, this fragile love, keep it burning through the night…….
Track Name: Silent Betrayal
Never seen nothing, don’t know who you are
Never seen nothing, don’t look far, never
Seen nothing ever happen to you, never
See you coming

Take another journey and I’ll be back soon
I’m running from a whispering moon, take a
Nother picture and I won’t see you, never
Saw you running

Coz this is way
And we’ve got to pay for your every indulgence
It’s better to stay
Our silence betrays all that we are

The silent betrayal
Held by a soul sale
The violence inhaled
Too scared to breathe your name
Track Name: Dandelion Charm
Hair as black as ebony, skin as white as snow
Weaving threads of make believe, in a world of her own
Safe within her fairytale, little does she know
The figure in shadow will make it unravel
And she won’t even know
A charm with a high price to pay – what’s done will come
And she just wants to stay
To freeze time in this moment today
But she knows as she blows
That her breath rips the young from their home
Dandelion dying, seeds swirling down all around
Seasons on the change – no return
Heart as black as ebony, skin as cold as snow
Whispered words of jealousy, that no mother should know
Guise she cannot recognise, traded for a soul
Decent to insanity, warped by her vanity
Seeds she can’t un-sew
Track Name: Flowerchild
Thought you were a flower child
Now I know I was dreaming
You bought to us a sourer lie
Now my passion is screaming

Is this real? Do you hear the words I’m saying?
Does it feel, like we’ve thrown it all away?
Is it me? Have I jumped to some delusion?
Can we see? Now we’re turning from the light.

You’ve taken all that I can give
Now the family’s over
You said that we were everything
Now the door’s a revolver

What does it take – to pull your mistakes – like a cloak – all around you?
All around you – thought you were a flower child – you said you were a flower child.
Track Name: So Much More
Tiny drop, trickle down
Through the window she’s gazing
She’s waiting for her life to start
There’s no running away, from the pain inside her
And god knows she’s stronger than most
But she yearns for so much more
It’s enough for the rest
To accept what’s been given
A fate her soul just can’t endure
There’s a drive to ask why
When they try to deny
What she knows in her heart to be true
Every lock has a key
And her passage is paid for
She’s leaving on the evening tide
She’ll be sailing away, from the pain inside her
And god knows she’s stronger than most
And she’s bound for so much more
There has to be something for everyone
For her and for me, something for everyone
Tiny drop, trickle down, to the sea
Track Name: Save These Words
When I close my eyes
And all I see is you
I guess part of me died
Or there’s part of me in you
And I never wanted to say this to anyone
No I never wanted to feel I should save these words for anyone
And I’ve always tried
To hold my head up high
Or have I just denied
A need in me to fly
And I never wanted to say this to anyone
No I never wanted to feel I should save these words for anyone
And there’s no place to hide
My gambling days are through
With words I can’t find
I keep this safe for you
And I never wanted to say this to anyone
And I never wanted to be this for anyone
No I never wanted to feel I should save these words for anyone
Track Name: Fall On Me
If you need me, come find me
If you need someone and all are gone
And I don’t know what this means, at all
The truth is not what it seems anymore
Fall on me – though I know I’ll never fix you
Fall on me – I know I’ll never chase the ghosts away
Fall on me – And so you’ll never need a reason,
Just let me carry you
You can fight
You are strong
Never give up ‘till you’re gone
Track Name: Taken Away
I know I’m losing you forever – fading away from here
Time takes its toll on you – the watcher - making your way back home
Oh but it’s breaking my heart
Please don’t forget that you love me
And it’s all that you’ve asked, and it’s all that you’ve asked
All that you’ve asked, is to love me

Taking away from you – so easy – nothing that I can do
Oh and it’s breaking my heart
Please don’t forget that you love me
And it’s all that you’ve asked, and it’s all that you’ve asked
All that you’ve asked, is to love me
Taken away (and it’s all that you’ve asked)
