Without You

Verse 1

I know the number of my days before my time
And Prayed I’d never die in your arms
If you don’t see me then suppose I’m still alive
I’d never disappear from your heart.

Bridge

In the higher places
Are you searching still?
And if you can’t find me
Then who ever will?
And you know I’ll miss you
Though I never cried
Will you ever find me?
Would I know you’d tried?

Verse 2

It’s not so difficult to loose the one you love
When you can always find another
It’s not that simple when the ones you love loose you
Will you remember me tomorrow?

Chorus

The months have passed the ones we never knew
And the many days without you
As nothing lasts remember me this way
With our dreams to guide you always

 

Running from the Dawn

Verse 1

We Stand
We stand upon the threshold now
Let’s stay
We’ll say no more
We understand
I held you in my arms when we were all alone
I’m sure I’ll never forget you when I let you go

Chorus 1

Running from the dawn before the morning light
Make believe I’m yours’ beside you here tonight

Verse 2

I searched
Among the faces in the crowd
I saw
I’m sure I saw you as you danced
A secret in your eyes
Betrayed with every glance
It’s just a matter of time before you take my heart

Chorus 2

Running from the dawn before the morning light
Make believe I’m yours’ beside you here tonight
Let us stay like this until the moment’s gone
Closer as we wish the dawn would never come

Refrain

Take the time to consider I we should change our lives
Surely I’ve been searching for you all this time?
If you leave in a while before this moment ends
Tell me: will we ever meet again?

And now
When I pretend you’re near
I know
I wish that you’d stayed right here

 

Nothing to Hide

Verse 1

There’s nothing to distinguish day and night
And I won’t choose between them now
It may be hard to refuse but I know how

Bridge 1

I disappeared from your sight
Within a flickering moment
I’m only here in disguise
Just like a passing illusion

Verse 2

Do you remember for a while I hardly slept
Perhaps you wondered why that was?
Forgive and never forget where I belong

Bridge 2

Pale eyed, betrayed, helpless one
Are you a fading emotion
I can’t repair what I’ve done
I had the purest intentions

Pre-chorus

I find
I’m only here when there’s nothing to hide
But I’m always here in disguise
I only fear when there’s nothing to hide

Chorus

I only care when I try
I’m only scared when there’s nothing to hide
I’m always here in disguise

I only fear when there’s nothing to hide

 

My Child

Verse 1

Searching for the traces
Of how you were before
Sometimes you perceive familiar faces
But I’m never really sure
Tell me you still hear me
I suppose you understand
Why do appear to see right through me
When I’m the only one you have?

Bridge

Still, silent wretch with joyless smile
Why so bleak you seem this morning?
I’ll still be with you for a while
Will you not be woken for me?

Chorus

My child
Would I ever let you fall?
Is there something in your eyes?
Or is there nothing there at all?

Verse 2

Every time I see you
You don’t recall my name
Sometimes I pretend you still remember
But it doesn’t feel the same
I hardly recognize you
But you’ve been away so long
Can’t you see I’m still right here beside you?
And will you notice when I’m gone?

Bridge 2

Worst case for sure, they’ve even seen
Only life without sensation
No-one can find the help you need
Seems your mind’s become too vacant

 

Miracles

Verse1

When I asked the ones who knew you
Why you’d been away so long
I learned of your confusion and devotion
And despite your own afflictions
You still tried to bear your cross
Do you still believe things happen for a purpose?

Chorus

Did they seem like miracles?
With grace, redemption
Don’t raise your hopes for wonder, in your heart
When they left with your conviction
Did they leave behind your scars?
Well I hope you see your miracles at last

Verse2

When they placed their hand upon you
When they prayed in Jesus’ name
Did your faith sustain you long enough to stand again?
I guess they warmed your heart with tales of footprints in the sand
But He doesn’t seem to carry you right now

Refrain

Well they all lined up and testified of suffering and pain
And how long they’d all endured this torment every day
Then they claimed some kind of miracle of God, a healing power
Do you wonder why he never helps you now?

 

Last Chance

Verse 1

See me before escaping
The ruins of a true love
Fleeing apart
Embracing a vision of the future
Facing a new direction
Still seems so unfamiliar
If on the way I met you
Would we become like strangers?

Chorus 1

Will you change your mind? Will you remember me?
How fast the years roll past
Will you draw near?
Though it’s been so long it seems like yesterday
Will I ever see you smile again this way?

Verse 2

Walking away without you
And without sense of purpose
Knowing I can’t replace you
I’ve never been so certain
Smother the old emotions
Before they leave by my mouth
Cover the dreams we’ve broken
Like shattered glass on the ground

Chorus 2

Will you change your mind? Will you remember me?
Last chance, the years still pass.
Will you draw near?
Though it’s been so long it seems like yesterday
Will I ever see you smile again this way?

Chorus 3

Will you change your mind? Will you remember me?
Last Chance, the years roll past.
Will you draw near?
Though it’s been so long it seems like yesterday
Will I ever see you smile again this way?

 

Forgive us Now

Verse 1

I think of all the things we said and I wonder if you heard
It seems we sometimes talked for hours and you didn’t hear a word
Awaiting your reply again as we wait for your return
We listen for a still small voice in the silence on the earth

Chorus

Forgive us now
Will you still deliver us somehow?
Will you reappear to save us now?
Did you hear when I invoked your name?
‘cos you never seemed so far away

Verse 2

You moved among the crowd tonight as we all stood gathered there
And we swayed and fell and danced as well in our fervour and our prayer
I saw your faithful servants as they lay upon the floor
Though I can’t quite say I felt that way and I don’t see you at all

 

Lost for Words

Verse:

I hear you
And feeling much more nervous than you are
Will you say something heart-felt soon?
Surprise us
Enrich us with your grace and with your charm
It may be hard to work this room

Chorus

If you’re overcome now
Then I think I understand
I feel so proud of you right now
Did you let your guard down?
Are you fighting back the tears?
You’ve never wept in all these years

Verse 2

You stumble
Upon your words
Whatever must they think?
You’ve always been misunderstood
You try to break the silence but you can’t say anything
I’d say them for you if I could

Refrain

You had your doubts this time I’m sure
A torn-up script arranged in pieces on the floor
A year’s work spent and nothing said
These scattered pages
Never spoken
Never Read

 

Wide Awake

Verse 1

I’d like to see the world before I’m gone
No time to realize my dreams
I haven’t got too long
It’s hard to comprehend eternity
There’s no-one on the other side to wait for me you see

Chorus

Stayed wide awake all night
Well I’ll dream today
Still afraid I’ll close my eyes and fade away
When sound asleep at last
You elude my mind
Will I ever wake again, in Paradise?

Verse 2

I’ve seen the end
My dearest friends
Wherever are you now?
A silent watch before you cast me down
Make no mistake
I’ll leave this place whenever I so choose
I never meant to leave you all so soon
