Track Name: She Said
She said she said she's got a new lover
She said she said she's loving another
Yet a few weeks before when she was still mine
She said all she needed was a little time
She said she said "just a little time"

She said she said "well please don't judge me"
But she's in your bed and it puts me through hell
Now I can't see forward, can't look behind
And I've lost all notion and sense and time
She said she said "just a little time"

She ripped my heart right out of my chest
And I lived through her worst and brought out her best
And I ran down her path and showed her the stars
And trusted her when she said "forever"

She said she said she just had to do it
The voices in her head where driving her there
And yeah she knows it's doomed and wants me around
To help her through when she crashes down
She said she said "just a little time"

And I burnt all her pictures and letters of love
And cried for the way that it used to be
When this flame became a forest fire; a raging fire
And we lit up the night
Then she ripped my heart right out of my chest
And I lived through her worst and brought out her best
And we howled at the moon and we howled in my bed
And I trusted her when she said "forever"

She said she said she's got a new lover
She said she said she's loving another
Yet a few weeks before when she was still mine
She said all she needed was a little time
She said she said "just a little time"
She said she said "just a little time"
Track Name: Requiem For A Lost Love
In the stillness of the night
When I'm never sleeping
I still hear the sound of your breath
Though you're far away in someone else's arms

Please release me from this jagged spell
Please release me from this love I feel

You always took everything you needed
But it was never enough
And the only time I ever needed you
You just turned your back and walked away

Please release me from this jagged spell
Say you're sorry and let me sleep
Track Name: Faith
A single blood-red rose
Is draped across her pallid snow-white English chest
A knife held to her heart by her own intellect
Drawing on a holy breath
She must run so fast just to keep from falling down
She wishes she were blind
Then she could turn these broken wings
Into garden beds; flower beds

She's drinking in your eyes
In the hope that maybe you can read her well
She know all things must pass - eventually
Fire and earth has made her stone
Now she's found herself at the foot of the moon all alone
Pushing through the cracks
You can't hide in the dark forever
Like an unborn child; broken child

She's longing for reunion
With a source of light greater than the self
Shedding all her skin in the dirt and mud
But wholeness is everything
And all along the path to heaven are heavenly angels,
Mystics, shamans and a gifted child
Stripped to the core of essential self
When everything else is taken it will sustain her

Drawing on a holy breath
She must run so fast just to keep from falling down
She wishes she were blind
But you can't hide in the dark forever
Like an unborn child; holy child
Track Name: Dark Deep Waters
I've got this theory
It says that you're crazy
I've got a number give me a call
I get this feeling
It warns me of treachery
You just claim you're misunderstood

I don't know if I can
Swim in these dark, deep waters
Throw me a line, I'm going down
I don't know if I can
Cool down my burning fever
When I don't care no more if I drown

You scream at the windows
To shatter the silence
You cut my words with your fingernails
You lie to the mirror
You lie in my bed
You know precisely how to seduce me
Track Name: Kiss Me Quick
Done some things don't make me proud
Walked around with head in cloud
Wore my heart upon my dirty sleeve
Well I'm no saint at least I try
Forget to breathe attempt to fly
Can't walk a straight line if I wanted to

Kiss me quick before I leave
And take this chance to trust in me
'Cause I'm the one who needs his endless freedom
Kiss me quick while you still can
I know I'm such a complex man
'Cause I'm the one who changes with the seasons

Walked a mile in broken shoes
Lived a dream with my sweet muse
Lost myself inside her dark deep cave
Kissed the sun and burnt my lips
Bit my nails to the finger tips
Don't know now who I should try to save

Kiss me quick before I leave
And take this chance to trust in me
'Cause I'm the one who needs his endless freedom
Kiss me quick while you still can
I know I'm such a common man
'Cause I'm the one who changes with the seasons

Kiss me quick before I leave
And take this chance to trust in me
'Cause I'm the one who needs his endless freedom
Kiss me quick while you still can
I know I'm such a stupid man
'Cause I'm the one who changes with the seasons
