They Sent Me 04:10
They sent me Diamonds to be right We heard them Sat and wondered why In all the desert screams Our love will blow Baby don't you see They sent me diamonds to be right Who noticed The treasure in our soul Please don't notice That I'll be taking all In all the desert screams Our love will blow Baby don't you see I wanna live The darkness says that it's the danger of I wanna smile The darkness says that it's the danger of 'cause they sent me diamonds to be right The notions Of someone that has won Finally they will Tell me to move on In all the desert screams Our love will blow Baby don't you see I wanna live The darkness says that it's the danger of I wanna grow The darkness says that it's the danger of No no no no, baby I wanna live The darkness says that it's the danger of Oh oh oh, baby I wanna live The darkness says that it's the danger of 'cause they sent me diamonds to be right diamonds to be right diamonds to be right

You've got to rest your soul to make it all worthwhile then nobody knows or philosophies And is it over here or is it over there I was the one that knew there was no time to stare You've grown cold, but hard to forget You've gotta raise your soul like mine You've grown cold, but hard to forget You've gotta raise your soul like mine And everything gets down Everything grows down Everything gets down Everything grows down At first it was great then sometimes even good at last I saw that you should be alone for good And it is my belief that you were not my style you always wanted me to be another guy You've grown cold, but hard to forget You've gotta raise your soul like mine You've grown cold, but hard to forget You've gotta raise your soul like mine And everything gets down Everything grows down Everything gets down Everything grows down You've grown cold, but hard to forget You've gotta raise your soul like mine You've grown cold, but hard to forget You've gotta raise your soul like mine And everything gets down

Sorry 04:59
It's no use, baby, I'm just right for me You could wonder why I never set you free Oooh, I am sorry ! A tide takes me back to your side, You can see it's never long before I stop the ride And roam back to my darkest side Baby, I am sorry ! Have you seen the use, have you heard the choosers and the preachers whine ? I am damned and now you know who's the laughing stock You have seen there's nothing I can work with a lot I am sorry ! It's that nightmare feeling that has stopped me believing You have got to continue without me I hope you see I am sorry ! It's that nightmare feeling that has stopped me believing You have got to continue without me I hope you see I am sorry ! A tide takes me back to your side, You can see it's never long before I stop the ride And roam back to my darkest side Baby, I am sorry ! Have you seen the use, have you heard the moaners and the groaners whine ? I am damned and now you know who's the laughing stock You have seen there's nothing I can work with a lot I am sorry ! It's that nightmare feeling that has stopped me believing You have got to continue without me I hope you see I am sorry ! It's that nightmare feeling that has stopped me believing You have got to continue without me I hope you see I am sorry !

Calming Down 04:16
Calming down There's no use in dressing up my thoughts babe The light that shines on you and the dreaming left to do When you're here babe The moment when your hand is coming down Oh my skin moves too And shrieks babe All the time your soul has never touched mine and it shows Every time your sigh will lead me down there, I don't know Western cross, no rain, no rain Calming down There's no use in dressing up my thoughts babe The light that shines on you and the dreaming left to do When you're here babe The moment when your hand is coming down Oh my skin moves too And shrieks babe All the time you've seen when to leave by myself When I see you bleed, I know it's no use to be sad Western cross, no rain, no rain

Worst Way 02:34
I've been taking time, and I hope that you will follow I'm subjected to violence in the worst way And the morning sun with that look upon your face I'm subjected to violence in the worst way Every day is yours, but the morning's got to follow I'm subjected to violence in the worst way When your love is gone all my hopes just fade away I'm subjected to violence in the worst way Who's to blame, the trees or the rain When the rage is high and your feelings take it over I'm subjected to violence in the worst way

Where can I sit and weep alone for a while. Willow tree wasted by me and broken. I have worked the day alone and saw the mess I took for granted was just my home. One day they'll see what is left of me after all those wasted dreams. One day they'll see what is left of me after all those wasted dreams. Lonely I have been I don't know if I can ever go much further than right here my eyes still see My hand is stuck my hair feels like leaves my head won't budge my feet are not free I'll be always here waiting 'till I dream like a tree. One day they'll see what is left of me after all those wasted dreams. One day they'll see what is left of me after all those wasted dreams. One day they'll see what is left of me after all those wasted dreams. One day they'll see what is left of me after all those wasted dreams. One day they'll see what is left of me after all those wasted dreams.

I was lost, then the silence was broken These shivers drove me downtown I'd been looking for hours, but nothing was open. These teardrops drove me downtown. So much hunger inside me and I fell there within I was sitting there and anywhere I went they could not reach me. And a hiccup here made all the others come and try to see me. Well I know these were the days of love and hate but I was strong, man, the other one was wrong and this is not what I always want to do So much hunger inside me and I fell there within Broken, somehow I'll survive here and I fell there within I'm a sick sick mind in a mostly sick sick time You know that is the reason why I was lost and found But they were just walkers and talkers Teaching us what it is like to be alone, mmmmm, oh yeah I'm a sick sick mind in a mostly sick sick time You know that is the reason why I was lost and found But they were just walkers and talkers Teaching us what it is like to be alone, mmmmm, oh yeah So much hunger inside me and I fell there within Broken, somehow I'll survive here and I fell there within

Never Lose 04:33
I wasn't planning on leaving you now I always thought we'd get by somehow And that we wouldn't have to lose Isn't this the time to choose Was this a way to forget my guilt What were you doing when the lies were built Have you been playing with the boys But I never will lose Isn't this the time to choose Was this the widest way of all Did I believe in the talking walls And I never will choose Did you leave like that man on the train, yeah I said the time has been marching away I always thought that the sun was good And I never will choose Was I a monkey that believes there's no hell Was I just waiting till our happiness fell Was this the evening and the dawn And I never will lose Was I the righteous or the blame Have you been crying for the moments I strayed Have I been holding on to summertimes And I never will lose lose I wasn't planning on leaving you now I always thought we'd get by somehow And that we wouldn't have to lose Isn't this the time to choose Will you stop listening to the others for once Be yourself and give us both a chance So that we wouldn't have to lose Isn't this the time to choose Was this the ride that I should never begin How could I know what were the odds to win And I never will lose Do you remember where we lost the thrill, yeah Can I believe we are lovers and still Find a way to forget my thoughts And I never will choose Is this a way to make me live in the past Should I forget you and move on at last Was this my treason or your trust And I never will lose I wasn't resting on the edge of the shore I didn't see that you were longing for more I never said you had to wait to cry And I never will lose lose

Us Away 04:01
I say life was made for you and me, it shines. Baby, oh, you have to see We've got it all Time goes quicker when I see you but the dawn will chase you away for much too long You've got it all And when the morning begins well then you go your own way and still they move us away When I wait home chasing the fears it is a long day walking following you in my dreams You've got it all Evening creeps in, bringing you near, what kind of thoughts will be stalking before the dawn comes along You've got it all And when the morning begins well then you go your own way and still they move us away And when the morning begins well then you go your own way and still they move us away
