Sebastian 03:12
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

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

Symphony 03:12
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

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

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

Hypnotize 07:01
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

Wake Up 06:03
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

I'm Yours 04:02
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

Born To Live 04:36
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

Breathe 06:16
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

Falling 04:09
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
