The lonely night

here come the lonely night
 I can’t escape my mind from a broken bough
 fall into finite space 
with the roof torn down 
this house is an empty place

so tired of wandering around 
and starting over 
no garden grows here 
now just the one leaf clover 
and when the windows shuttered

it’s always dark inside 
sometimes the pain is absurd 
still it’s what fate decides 
thought i saw jesus come down dressed like a soldier 
I used to cry like a clown and now I’m older 

here come the lonely night 
can’t escape my mind 
and the grinding wheel turns 
and the heavens burn 
as the pilot ignites 
is a lesson learned 
a sullen look of concern 
it might make you sad like the fluttering bird in a dream you had 

here come the lonely night 
I can’t escape my mind 
I saw jesus come down dressed like a soldier once 
I cried like a clown 

now I’m older 
here come the lonely night 
can’t escape my mind

Well, he feels like an elephant
Shaking his big grey trunk for the hell of it
He knows that you're dreaming about being over him

Too bad your chances are slim

And it's not like mister shook to get shy when they ask him who is under
There must be something deep down in the middle down there

He's not too easily scared

He's got friends but they have fear
Who don't care too much if he just disappeared
Oh, look there he is now coming down the stairs

Here it comes

He pulled the mirrors off his Cadillac
'Cause he doesn't like it looking like he looks back
He talks like his opinion is a simple fact

Somebody grabbed his collar
He cried the whole way home
He won't remember a thing 'til they start again

That's how it is 'til the end

All I Wanna Do

All I want to do, all I want to do
Is sit by the pool today and drink with you

Idle time away, idle time away
Consume the day and find a reason to swim away

Sweet cherry, extraordinary

Now the best to do, now the best to do
Combine the minds, it's eruption in disguise

While I'm wondering, while I'm wondering
The secret lies beneath your simple smile

Sweet cherry, extraordinary

Afraid of the Dark

I just can’t be you anymore
I feel you stand behind me now
Won’t shaking hands take me down? 
Down, down, down! 

So were somewhat unsurprised 
Maybe I moved or faking
Everything to me felt just like numb
If you won’t see me anymore!

And neither could say who is who
You’re leaving for another year
Pray that I might cry in on

Through your teeth, through your tears 
Still is someone else’s life
I won’t get you under no yellow sun
I will get you in like a…
Fire now, your bullets gone!


This one heart is afraid of the dark
Never gonna stop you, never gonna conquer
Fear is running heart, my fear is forever
Darkness is in everything.

Fears I have learned to ride, down heartlessly rumoured around

Seeing all the sounds fade in my eye, all in a sea of danger

I want to accept defeat again, on the chin but it's a new day

In the sunlight, out of the fears

You ain't around, hardly the time

I learn to see out of the corner

You in the sun cheating the lonesome

Call on the day, try to remember

I'm not the one, who had the number

Calling you out I do wanna see

Haven't you heard, holding a song in me

It's alright, with me, I love the same way alone again..

Maybe On Monday

Woke up on Monday and wrote you a love song, wrote you a love song

Well the pen stopped and the paper flew out the window

And the notes rang down the road

I dont know where theyll go get caught in the trees I suppose

Ripped apart by the birds and the winter winds whisper good bye to your love

Went out walking into the storm, into the storm

Followed what I thought was your voice but it was just the riverside

I dont know where theyll go but I cast the letters you wrote

Taken out by the current or sink to the bottom to say a little goodbye to your love

Skies dark and the wind blew the trees down

I watched as the world slipped away

Carved into the bark a final love song

Then I carried the words to the fire

Staring into the glow where the branches are burning low

Sparks shooting out like stars and in the morning say a little goodbye to your love

Ill carry this song with me everyday til I lie down by your side

Tom The Model

How can I forget your tender smile
Moments that I have shared with you
Our hearts may break
But they're on their way
And there's nothing I can do

Oh, so do what you gotta do
And don't misunderstand me
You know you don't ever
Have to worry 'bout me
I'd do it again

I can understand that it can't be
Guess it's harder you were meant for me
But I can't hide my own despair
I guess I never will

Oh, so do what you gotta do
And don't misunderstand me
You know you don't ever
Have to worry 'bout me
I'd do it again

So tired of life no fairy-tale
So hold your fire 'cause I need you

Oh, just do what you gotta do
And don't misunderstand me
You know you don't ever
Have to worry 'bout me
I'd do it again

Do what you gotta do
And don't misunderstand me
You keep going over
Every word that we've said
But you don't have to worry
About me
