Track Name: Leaden Heart
Intuition says walk away
What possesses me to stay
I dug you out of your black whole
Then you ran away with all the gold

I want to reach into your heart and make the sun rise
I want to stare into your soul and tell you that I love you

Your leaden heart grows darker everyday
It's hard to watch your love fade away
Steely eyes laced with fear
My leaden heart is bleeding tear

I want to reach into your heart and make the sun rise
I want to stare into your soul and tell you that I love you

The sea of change, reflection of bruised skies
Tendrils of fog swept accross my eyes

I want to reach into your heart and make the sun rise
I want to stare into your soul and tell you that I love you
Track Name: Black Moon
Black moon in a navy sky
My tear drops seem to never dry
They roll like shooting stars in an empty sky
You say that you love me but I can see
There's wonder in your eyes cast by
The shadow of a black moon

Black moon in the same old style
My lips seem to never smile
My teeth like pearls in an oyster shell
You say you'll stay with me but I can tell
That you'll run away
Under the spell of a black moon

Black moon in a dark, dark sky
The clouds roll in and wave the stars goodbye
You strike like lightening and like thunder I cry
You say you'll never leave me but I can see
That your heart is no longer with me
Track Name: The Same Thing
Just because I’m shorter than your sword

And my voice is smaller than your scream

I’ll still say the same thing

I wont turn my back but I’ll turn the other cheek

If you want the coat from off my back take everything to my feet

I’ll still say the same thing

Cos I’ve got nothing to lose
But everything to gain

I’ll still say the same thing
That will never change

Just because your dreams are louder than my actions
And your change weighs more than my wallet
I’ll still say the same thing
If you push me an inch I’ll walk with you a mile

If you want it all that badly I’ll give it with a smile

I’ll still say the same thing

Cos I’ve got nothing to lose
But everything to gain

I’ll still say the same thing
That will never change

Just because I love the silence sung in harmony

I’ll still say the same thing

If I fail to speak my truth in fear of losing you
I’ll lose everything

Cos I’ve got nothing to lose
But everything to gain

I’ll still say the same thing
That will never change
Track Name: Without Darkness
Sometimes life is hard sometimes life is full of sorrow
Hard to face the day let alone tomorrow
Tears may blind your way but you'll see some day
That the light within never fades away

Sometimes life is hard and dreams dissolve before you
Blade of truth so sharp that the pain scores right through
How to take the gift to find pain inside
How to temper a sword let it be your guide

What is light without darkness
What is love without hate
What is joy without saddness
What is life without a mate

Sometimes life is hard and you have no-one to turn to
Never felt so alone all you need's someone to love you
Then as if by chance your life turns around
And the fresh air breaths through a strangers hand

Sometimes life is hard, where's the silver in the lining
In the eye of the storm hope is shining
A little rain must fall then the sun breaks through
When all is lost life surprises you.
Track Name: Desert Flower
You came from no-where like rain in a desert

Like a mirage at my thirsty lips you disappear

Now I'm quenching your love so much that it hurts

And the only rain to fall is a drop of a tear

I'm a desert flower that needs water

Rain on me if you want my love to grow

Like rain in a desert you never stayed
Like sand in my fingertips you slipped away

As I look upon the clouds tonight for solace

My lips the taste of tears ache for your kiss

I'm a desert flower that needs water

Rain on me if you want my love to grow

If there's a doorway to hell it's your eyes I can tell

As the moment I looked straight away I fell
If hell has a monastery you'd be the friar

As you held my body, mind and soul in a baptism of fire

Like rain in a desert I longed for your return

As I wait beneath the sun I begin to burn

As I drown in quicksand my soul brakes free

But my love for you shall never escape me

I'm a desert flower that needs water

Rain on me if you want my love to grow
