Track Name: Take a bow
The day it turns to tonight again
the stars begin to speak
just behind another world
where we prepare to meet

the colours splayed across the sky
they dance for you and me
they sing their songs of remedy
and aid the scars to heal

Everyone is so secure in themselves

Take a bow, hold your head up high
it's a long road but you have come so very far

Shake away the doubts that steal
the thoughts of tired minds
set to right the majesty
of your vision's great design

You're standing still but travelling
you've reached the great divide
to sink or swim is heralding
the turning of the tide

Everyone is so secure in themselves

Take a bow, hold your head up high
it's a long road but you have come so very far
take your time, take the moment in
have no regrets for anyone you've left behind

Take my hand, ease my mind
comfort me as I choose to stay behind

You've become what you believed
you'd always grow to be
the night it holds a new regard
for all you touch and see

Staring up into the sky
you search for something new
something to remind you of
the old things you would do


Everyone is so secure in themselves

Take a bow, hold your head up high
it's a long road but you have come so very far
take your time, take the moment in
have no regrets for anyone you've left behind
Track Name: Ghosts
The space between divides
I see no reason why
you're far away, for you it's another day
while sleep has passed me by

with, these, eyes,

I see ghosts, in the corner of my room
they never speak or move, but they know I can see them
they stare, their gaze goes right through me
their expression says save me
but I am more than helpless

daylight comes and goes
anticipation grows
will you fall or just take one more step inside
I hope that you arrive

with, these, eyes,

I see ghosts, in the corner of my room
they never speak or move, but they know I can see them
they stare, their gaze goes right through me
their expression says save me
but I am more than helpless

Oh don't feel you have to leave, I'd like you to stay
please tell me what it's like on the other side

I see ghosts, in the corner of my room
they never speak or move, but they know I can see them
they stare, their gaze goes right through me
their expression says save me
but I am more than helpless
Track Name: This is your time
Eyes dead in your head, sinking like a stone
filled with lead, a dead weight
tugging hard at your resolve
oh yeah, you have got to pull yourself together
as it's getting late and you are still so incomplete
not withstanding all of the fears you have
and all of the doubts you have
but I know what will make you feel much better

This is your time

Your heart is racing, beating like a drum
sympathetic pulses sounding through your chest, shallow breaths
oh yeah, you have got to pull yourself together
as it's getting late and you are still so incomplete
not withstanding all of the fears you have
and all of the skins you've shed
and situations fled
but I know what will make you feel much better

This is your time
This could be your time

oh yeah, you have got to pull yourself together
as it's getting late and you are still so incomplete
not withstanding all of the hopes you have
and all of the dreams you have
but I know what will make you feel much better

This is your time
This could be your time
Track Name: Before the sun goes down
Out on the streets we run tonight
against the wind we'll make our strides
once more we turn our backs on our town
we let it down

I wanted to be wrong like all those times before
but these streets and roads don't speak so clearly anymore

Before the sun goes down we'll turn around
before this city falls we'll tear it down

I've given you so little of myself
but in return you've worn me down
you're always staring straight into me eyes
this changing tide

I wanted to be wrong like all those times before
but this heart and mind of mine won't dream here anymore

Before the sun goes down we'll turn around
before this city falls we'll tear it down
before the sun goes down we'll turn around
before our memories fade we'll write them down

When I close my eyes i see you clutching through the dark
this scene you're playing out is pulling me apart

Before the sun goes down we'll turn around
before this city falls we'll tear it down
before the sun goes down we'll turn around
before this city falls we'll tear it down
Track Name: Mysteries and histories
In every road you turn down, you meet an obstacle
another mountain, for you to somehow climb
and everything you've seen you still believe in
everything you need, you have on hand
so why are you still so sad, why can't you see
that you could be all the things you want to be

Don't you realise

This is not a trick you see
it's mysteries and histories colliding
right in front of you
this is such a twist of fate
these mysteries and histories surviving
all because of you

You've convinced yourself the days are closing in
you think you've lost control, you're running out of time
everything you feel you pass it on, everything you've been still carries on
how do you sleep so sound without a care
this is the question hanging in the air

Don't you realise

This is not a trick you see
it's mysteries and histories colliding
right in front of you
this is such a twist of fate
these mysteries and histories surviving
all because of you
