01 Save My Heart

Lyrics
I held in all my wounds but felt them when I breathed
I cried in quiet rooms and called on love to set my body free.

Save my heart
It is all I’ve got.
Save my heart
It is all I’ve got.
Save my heart
It is all I’ve got…

I walked on sunny sides with a cage inside held up by my pride
Now I talk of running wild, of feeling high, with a humble soul and mind.

Save my heart
It is all I’ve got.
Save my heart
It is all I’ve got.
Save my heart
It is all I’ve got…

Lyrics
City of Love

After the sun comes the rain
After the fall comes the pain
I'm on a sea of trouble love and my horizons are all blue.
I'm on a bed of nails love and I'm laying there.
I'm laying there.

Calling on the city of love
Calling on the city of love
I don't want to wait at all
I don't want to wait at all

Calling on the city of love
Calling on the city of love
I don't want to break or fall
I don't want to break at all.

After the high comes that low.
After the fire comes the growth.
I'm on a sea of trouble love and my horizons are all blue.
I'm on a bed of nails love and I'm laying there.
I'm laying there.

Red Poppy Fields
And the soldiers walk on
Through the sorrow of their storms.
Red poppy fields grow
In the valley of the Somme.

This is the real life
Where even our friends fight
And love fades to the west

This cannot be what is real
As the night rolls on through the thunder storms.
I can feel all the dust advance
This is my last dance.

There was never hate
Only lies fed to my face
How could I have known?
And all my brothers gone
Buried where we won.
Now nothing to show.

Lyrics
Little Lost

Another morning of trying to get up
Oh a sleepless night of thoughts and doubts.
Fixing coffee and trying to fix this life
Pouring hope back on the fire that's gone out

Just one drop in a sea of "have nots"
and a waterfall of "would've rather done's"
Praying now 'cause everywhere I turn
I hear the voices in my head they burn

I'm just a little bit lost
Just a little out of touch with the plan
I'm just a little bit lost
I could use a little love
and a hand

In the still of night the loudest sounds I hear
Are the memories shaped by shame and fear
Don't worry know let each day become it's own
What tomorrow brings nobody really knows.

Ordinary Love
This is no ordinary love.

Don't let the day to day swallow you up
You are more than just flesh and blood
And say we are out of luck
We've been here so many times before
Love is not a storybook ending it's a fight every day towards a new beginning.

This is no ordinary love
you take my heart and lift it up when it's numb
This is no ordinary love
Love is a stubborn won't give up 'till we've won

So it's a whispered prayer
We don't have much but we've got what we need
caught between the rocks and the sea
oh that sea is pulling at me.

This is no ordinary love
you take my heart and lift it up when it's numb
This is no ordinary love
Love is a stubborn won't give up 'till we've won

There is so much I want to do
Dancing the night away with you

I Shaped Myself Around You
I shaped myself around you love
My heart at rest.
Below your chest.

Now I'm breaking up the ground my love.
Of this house we built.
This home we killed.

And the freedom's I lost.
To gain Love...
And the choices I made...
To feel safe...

Where have our good days gone?
Where have they gone?

(My heart...)
(My heart...)

And I'm caught up in the storm my love.
Your words rain down. Reign down from above.
I tried to recall the way I once knew.
But I can't 'cause I shaped myself around you...

And the freedoms I gained
In your name....
The paths left unchanged
for your sake.....

Where have our good days gone?
Where have they gone?

Lyrics
Marble Floors

I want a home, I want a home
With marble floors
With marble floors and a love I can hold
A love I can hold
When those floors get cold

And she’ll dance on my toes
And she’ll dance on my toes
as the evening grows
as the evening grows
Through the chimney we’ll float
We’ll float
And from the clouds I’ll make her a coat.

And those neon lights fill the sky so bright
My heart is tired
It’s burnt on fire
From the love that has died
Take the sparks that survived
From the ashes tonight

She Holds the Universe Together
 Search the sky for a light for a light
The past shapes us through pity and spite.
And love is a foreigner to her heart.
A daylight traveler in a world that’s only dark.

She holds the universe together
With her arms.
Calling out to God, “Don’t take forever!
My hands are sore and they are waiting for me down the hall.
With this weight I will fall.”

Do or die these are the stories in my life.
Fast changes and the stones that stay in love.
And love is an actress from the old cinema reels.
A grayscale picture that she’ll never feel.

Lyrics
The London Air Raids

And we sit here so close in the dark
And we’re so close to being torn apart
Ever crash I can feel in our foundation
It runs through my veins and I hate the sensation

But I know that I’m safe here with you
Cause we made it through everything the old and the new
Just wake me up when all this is over
wake me up and tell me it’s not true

My sweet love watch the air raids
As the streets of London are not safe
And I wish that we could escape
As the beat of the drum keeps on its play
And I long to feel the rain on my face
So I wait, I want the bombs to fade away

And the hum of the airplanes is such a sweet sound
As we’re coming up from underground
Coming up to see our ruined state
Coming up to see those ruins you made

And in the east I hear a nation shout
And we wait for the day that we can sing it out

Things Will Get Better
mmm
ahhh
Things will get better.
ahhh
Things will get good.
