Track Name: Last Chance To Call
Out on a limb running dry
Life is a sin through these eyes
You won't believe me this time
That I'm going straight, going to try

Awake and alone through the night
Worried and sick for your life
You can't protect me with lies
The truth maybe hard but its right

If you leave now we'll never know
To what strengths this love could ever grow
You'll call me up in years to come
And say I think we got it oh so wrong
This is your last chance to call

You never believed in goodbyes
Say they're too hard on the eyes
The chapters are too short in life
Wasted the chance of a lifetime

Pretend that we're happy when you smile
Covers the cracks up on the inside
This is our last chance to survive
Give me one more try

Solo

You know we could end on a high
Given the chance we could fly
The chapters are too short in life
We were gone in the blink of an eye

If you leave now we'll never know
To what strengths this love could ever grow
You'll call me up in years to come
And say I think we got it oh so wrong
This is your last chance to call
Track Name: These Days
Well I've been out walking
I don't do that much talking these days, these days
These daysI seem to think a lot about the things that I forgot to do, for you
And all the times I had the chance to

And I had a lover
It's so hard to risk another these days, these days
Well if I seem to be afraid to live the life that I have made in song
Then it's just cos I've been losing, for so long

Well I'll keep on moving, moving along
Things are bound to be imp[roving these days
One of these days

These days I sit on corner stones
And count the time in quarter tones to ten, my friend
Don't confront me with my failures
I had not forgotten them.
Track Name: Wanderer
Meet me at the rail track
Where the people ride a carriage thinking it will take them to their dreams
A journey of delusion
To that final destination, a place that you and I will never reach

Been flying around in circles, looking for a reason to come down,
Touched down in the middle of nowhere
It's going to be a long walk home

Help me fight my demons
Cos I'm struggling 1 on 1 and each day I find it hard to beat them down
Give me a direction
Show me the path to take guide me by my hand show me the way

Been flying around in circles, looking for a reason to come down,
Touched down in the middle of nowhere
It's going to be a long walk home

Looking down or up is no good
What you're looking for is not understood
Time has come decisions made
Now be a man and don't be afraid

Give me all my strength lord
As I'm running into battle, the time has come for me to show my worth
I'll do what I know best now, then ask for forgiveness, maybe someday I can find my peace.......but until then..

I'm still flying around in circles in need of a reason to come down
If I ever choose to touch down
It's going to be a long walk home

A long walk home (repeat)
Track Name: Mayday
It's 6am and I'm freezing
Left the window up again
You always used to keep the heat in
But you're not in my bed

The sun comes up as I'm leaving
Still cold from all the things we said
I wish those words we were screaming
Had remained unsaid

This is a Mayday
I'm drowning in the waves
This is a Mayday
Before you slip away

The evening comes and I'm sinking
Disappearing once again
I see the rescue boats nearing
but they're all in my head

This is a Mayday
I'm drowning in the waves
This is a Mayday
Before you slip away

When you can't make it alone
It's ok, you can say so
And when the hull breaks
There'll still be time to slip away

How can the world have no colour
When nothing in it's black and white
Please pull me out of the water
And bring me back to life

This is a Mayday
I'm drowning in the waves
this is a Mayday
Before you slip away

This is a Mayday x 5...
Track Name: Tears In The Dust
Out are the wolves, drooling
On the scent of your black heart
I can hear them howling
Searching you out in the dark

In over the mountains
Through a fallen sky
Below no sympathy
Searchlights shining high

When the witching hour is over
And you're sure they're gonna come
Tears in the dust
A red river runs

The rope is swung, swingin'
For justice to succeed
Scared of the noose, the guilty
Dance for all to see

One minute call
Before the hunter cries
Then out from the shadows crawl
Wolves with glowing green eyes

When the witching hour is over
And you're sure they're gonna come
Tears in the dust
A red river runs

Beware the fury of a patient man
Learn quick from your mistakes
Men will soon grow weary
Dancing on the heads of snakes

When the witching hour is over
And you're sure they're gonna come
Tears in the dust
The red river runs

Tears in the dust
A red river runs
