Track Name: Leave A Light On
Don’t leave a light on for me
I’ll find my way in
I’ve been here many times before
The moonlight makes you look pale
Makes me look thin

Every day that I’ve had
I’ve had it for you
Every moment I’ve bled
I’ve bled it for you

Come to me
When you’ve lost what you’re looking for
In the games within
Come on in
I’ll fill in the score

Every day that I’ve had
I’ve had it for you
Every moment I’ve bled
I’ve bled it for you
Track Name: Greedy
Take me down
There is nothing you can do to make me love you now
Look around
All the voices of my dying dreams are silent now

I gave you all I ever had
But there was nothing left for me so I am empty now
And all the things you took from me
Were the things that made me happy
Are you happy now?
Now you’ve taken it all away

You’re so greedy
Look what you’ve done to me
Can’t you see
That it hurts me
But I know you don’t really care
So I hope one day what you’ve done to me
Will come back to you
And then you’ll be sorry
That you were so greedy

Here I stand
I know the future’s in my hands but you have tied them down
And you’re afraid
That I am stronger than the bonds you’ve made
And I will break them now
I will take it back from you

You’re so greedy
Look what you’ve done to me
Can’t you see
That it hurts me
But I know you don’t really care
So I hope one day what you’ve done to me
Will come back to you
Oh I know one day what you’ve done to me
Will come back to you
And then you’ll be sorry
That you were so greedy
Track Name: This War
When the leaders of nations are stabbing the dark
With a knife grown blunt as they tear it apart
I’m ashamed
To pick up the pieces

When the cries of starvation are echoing
Through the guts of a nation that’s bloated with spoils of war
Was it worth fighting for?

Is this war worth fighting?
Is this war worth fighting?
Is it all worth fighting for?

When she picked up the gun she was shocked by the weight
She caressed the cold barrel, felt the stirrings of hate in her heart
Could she blow this apart?

When she looked at the river of blood in the sink
She saw colours and shapes and she started to think it’s a shame
But aren’t we all the same?

Is this war worth fighting?
Is this war worth fighting?
Is it all worth fighting

If evil prevails while we turn a blind eye
While we’re washing our hands of the moment to try to speak out
To stand up and shout

I am not afraid
I am not forgotten
I will not be silenced
That’s a war worth fighting
Track Name: The Gatekeeper
There’s a gate
At the back of a garden
There’s a gate
I can’t find the key

There’s a man
And he’s holding the roses
But the thorns
Are making me bleed

And I am afraid to love
And he is afraid to love
We are afraid

There’s a wake
For the death of a lady
And we all
Throw a rose on the grave

And I am afraid to love
And she was afraid to love
We’re all so afraid

Let me out
Let me out
I can’t breathe when you’re holding me

Let me out
Track Name: Like Rain
Reaching out
I’m like a child with open arms
I want to shout
I’m standing on the edge of something
Looking down
And I’ve seen this precipice before

Goodbye fear
You’ve held my hand for many years
But it’s time to let go
Now it’s time to watch you float away
From here
Away from here

And I see her face
And I see the place
And it is beautiful
Like rain

Reaching out
I’ll light my candle in the sky
I want to shout
The power’s gone from you to burn this fire dry
And you will never burn it out
You’ll never burn it out

And I see her face
And I see the place
And it is beautiful
Like rain

Oh mother
Oh mother
I’m coming home
I’m coming home

Oh mother
Oh mother
I’m coming home
I’m coming home
Track Name: Someone Like Me
I’ve been scared
To show too much of myself to you
I’ve been scared you won’t like what you see
I’m prepared
To give this some time
These are trying times, trying times indeed

You’re not sure
That’s ok cause I’m so unsure too
But I’m here for you

Be my friend
Ask what you want of my soul
I hope that it helps you to breathe
And maybe you’ll see
The goodness inside you
Reflected in someone like me
Someone like me

This feels hard
And confusion is hanging in the air
This sadness seems too much to bear
Don’t give in
There is courage inside you to strengthen you
From within

The damage is done
But it’s all up to you from here on
Leave the past in the past

And be my friend
Ask what you want of my soul
I hope that it helps you to breathe
And maybe you’ll see
The goodness inside you
Reflected in someone like me
Someone like me

Oh be my friend
Ask what you want of my soul
I hope that it helps you to breathe
And maybe you’ll see
The goodness inside you
Reflected in someone like me
Someone like me
Track Name: Fireflies
I don't know what I can say to make this better
All I can do is be here with you, here together
I know it's hard to believe there is beauty in this world
But someday you will see
That you and those around are like fireflies
A little light in the darkness burning bright
And I will never be afraid with you to guide my way

The world has brought you to your knees
But please understand
That all you ever need is a faithful friend to help you stand
To tell you -
I know it's hard to believe that there is beauty in this pain
That you will live and love again
Because you and those around you are like fireflies
A little light in the darkness burning bright
And I will never be alone with you to guide me home
