Track Name: Sebastian
Sebastian


Are you a ghost cos I swear I felt you move through me

You're getting close I'm icy cold can hardly breathe


Then your hands tell me go and my eyes start to close

And your breath whispers yes and my heart tells me no


Sebastian, Sebastian

I'm under your spell

Sebastian


Are you a lie cos I swear I've heard all this before

For you I'd die and you just smile and kill me more


Then your hands tell me go and my eyes start to close

And your breath whispers yes and my heart tells me no


Sebastian, Sebastian

I'm under your spell

Sebastian


And as I slip away all this fever and faith

Pour right out of my veins what have you done

I call out your name though you say I'm to blame

You're the one playing games hold on


Sebastian, Sebastian

I'm under your spell

Sebastian

Sebastian

Will you tell them I fell

Sebastian
Track Name: Keep The Light In
Keep The Light In


The clock is ticking it's ticking it's way off off the wall

And I am suddenly wondering if I'm even here at all

As all their laughter and laughter alight from the avenue

I paint pictures inside of my mind in the colour you


Keep the light in

Keep the light in

Don't let darkness creep inside again

Keep the light in

Keep the light in

Don't let darkness creep inside again


Time is taking its taking away all I've ever loved

It is smothering you smothering me with feather gloves

Now I am following following you down a corridor

Though I am running as fast as I can you still seem so far


Keep the light in

Keep the light in

Don't let darkness creep inside again

Keep the light in

Keep the light in

Don't let darkness creep inside again

Don't let darkness creep inside again

Don't let darkness creep inside again

Don't let darkness creep inside again
Track Name: Symphony
Symphony


Lost my way in the dark

Breathe in air breathe out sparks

I caught fire in the storm before the calm


Wait until the light gets dark

Wait until he breaks my heart

I'm waiting like a movie star

I'm waiting In the dark


He's all I need

He's all I need

He sings for me a symphony

He's all I need

He's all I need

He sings for me a symphony


Lost my way chasing fires

Hand in hand with blind desire

Danger danced me to his arms a bed of thorns


Just wait until the day departs

Wait until the fever starts

I'm waiting like a movie star

I'm waiting in the bar


He's all I need

He's all I need

He sings for me a symphony

He's all I need

He's all I need

He sings for me a symphony
Track Name: Now That We Are Ghosts
Now That We Are Ghosts


Myself I give myself away

Breathing everyday

until my last breath escapes

Fractured fractured little silence

Is nowhere ever safe

we knelt a while to pray


Now that we are ghosts

To never be never be found

Now that we are ghosts

Haunting our old town

Now that we are ghosts

It's you I'll miss the most

Now that we are ghosts

Now that we are ghosts


Paper just meaningless paper

The words that mean the most

Lay silent as we go

Airless airless in the twilight

The stars we call our own

In our weightless little home


Now that we are ghosts

To never be never be found

Now that we are ghosts

Haunting our old town

Now that we are ghosts

It's you I'll miss the most

Now that we are ghosts

Now that we are ghosts
Track Name: Right By Your Side
Right By Your Side


Our lives are circles but we live in lines

Said my beating heart to the great divide

I've had a fear of falling all my life

From the very start to the finish line


So we're made of fires and we're made of stars

From the deepest blue where the lightening sparks

But I've been yours right from the start

No matter where you go gonna race your heart


I'm right by your side

Right by your side

When life gets unkind

I'm right by your side


A storm is coming and the light gives in

I can feel the fear settle on your skin

We'll take a breath and we'll dive in

Never to be seen again


I'm right by your side

Right by your side

When life gets unkind

I'm right by your side
Track Name: Hypnotize
Hypnotize


Leave your faith by the fire

We'll be fine in time

Lay me down on your floor

Be your ghost no more


Cos you hypnotize

You hypnotize

I wanna live behind your eyes

You hypnotize

You hypnotize

I wanna live behind your eyes

Hypnotize


Leave your life by the light

And take me with you when you die

Even fear can't take me home

Far behind all I have known


Cos you hypnotize

You hypnotize

I wanna live behind your eyes

You hypnotize

You hypnotize

I wanna live behind your eyes

Hypnotize

Track Name: Wake Up
Wake Up


Started off with this fear

Ended off with this thunder

And it's all I can do

And it's taking me under

When did I stand a chance

When did life get so messed up

In a dream in a trance

Then you scream at me

wake up wake up wake up wake up


We fought fire with flame

Put away all that has been

All that's left is your name

As your lying beside him

When did we stand a chance

When did life get so messed up

In a dream in a trance

Then you scream at me

Wake up wake up wake up wake up


Give my life for a moment

Give my dream for a day

A million kisses to taste your skin

A million words left to say

Should have taken a chance

Given in and got messed up

In a dream in a trance

Then you scream at me

Wake up wake up wake up wake up
Track Name: I'm Yours
I'm Yours


I hear sirens then silence

Candescent lights in the blueness of the night

From this window seat below lonely streets

Oh what lives we lead and I'm hoping your still mine


Cos I'm yours

I'm yours

I'm yours

of course


Do you hear violins the city sings

A symphony of hope and loss and life

when the worlds asleep under cotton sheets

Your here with me and I'm hoping that you'll find


That I'm yours

I'm yours

I'm yours

of course


When the world falls apart

I know you'll carry me carry me

And I'm heavy in my heart

I know you carry me carry me

Let it all fall apart

I know you'll carry me carry me

Though I'm heavy in your arms

And still you carry me carry me

You carry me carry me

You carry me carry me
Track Name: Born To Live
Born To LIve


I am a shooting star

But this time I've gone too far

So this is the ground it seems

And oh God it's killing me


Cos I was born to live

I was born to live


So let's fly like birds and live our dreams

We could burn like fire be wild like the sea

Not lost like me


I am the evening sky

For I never chase the light

Will you be my alibi

Will you stay right by my side


Cos I was born to live

I was born to live


So let's fly like birds and live our dreams

We could burn like fire be wild like the sea

Not lost like me
Track Name: Breathe
Breathe


Breathe is all I do when I can't sleep

Lost is what I am when you aren't with me

I just breathe breathe breathe breathe breathe in

Breathe breathe breathe breathe breathe out


Fine is what I'll say if you ask me

Dying is what you'll see if you really see me

I just breathe breathe breathe breathe breathe in

Breathe breathe breathe breathe breathe out


If you kiss me in the quiet morning

Drink the water and the bread and wine

I'll be your oxygen your belladonna

Breathe in me

Breathe the breath of life

Breathe in me

Breathe the breath of life

Breathe in me

Breathe the breath of life


Fires are what you start inside of me

Burning up from the inside so they will never see me me

They just breathe breathe breathe breathe breathe in

Breathe breathe breathe breathe breathe out

We just breathe breathe breathe breathe breathe in

Breathe breathe breathe breathe breathe out



But if you kiss me in the quiet morning

Drink the water and the bread and wine

I'll be your oxygen your belladonna

Breathe in me

Breathe the breath of life

Breathe in me

Breathe the breath of life

Breathe in me

Breathe the breath of life
Track Name: Falling
Falling


You see my light you see my dark you see me

You find the life locked in my heart and free me

More than anything at all you said you would save my life

More than anything at all you swore I would be alright


But I'm still falling


You are the day you are the sea complete me

You are the air inside my lungs so breathe me

More than anything at all you said you would save my life

More than anything at all you swore I would be alright


But I'm still falling

I'm still falling


And as I fall, fall, fall, fall

You take it all you take it all

And now I'm gone

And still I fall, fall, fall

You take it all you take it all

And now I'm gone

Now I'm gone
