there’s something in the light that keeps you coming back for more but when you’re here it looks so dark is that what you saw before? i could show you where i’m from but the maps won’t tell you why cos all that sings lives in the sun and we have nothing we have nothing to become after all the hallelujahs after all the silent nights after all when truth is dancing at your door and you can see, cos you’re not searching anymore baby, maybe we’ve all been a part of the same thing from the very start baby, maybe we’ve all been a part of the same thing from the very start she told me nothing’s ever lost she taught me time is just a game and every death another breath can you hear our names in the pouring rain? after all the hallelujahs after all the silent nights after all when truth is dancing at your door and you can see, cos you’re not searching anymore baby, maybe we’ve all been a part of the same thing from the very start baby, maybe we’ve all been a part of the same thing from the very start baby, maybe we’ve all been a part of the same thing from the very start baby, maybe we’ve all been a part of the same thing from the very start

hello stranger, i'm a child i can show you how you used to smile and be the things you can't express that's when truth is at its best i remember well the way you used to tell of how we found the sea by mama’s mango tree we all live in between the silent silver screen and someone’s fading dream mmm, where did the time go? mmm, where did the time go? is this the way to half moon bay? are these the words that you could never say? is this the place i learned to laugh before the silence in the photographs? i remember well the way you used to tell of how we found the sea by mama’s mango tree we all live in between the silent silver screen and someone’s fading dream mmm, where did the time go? mmm, where did the time go? mmm, where did the time go? mmm, where did the time go? mmm, where did the time go? mmm, where did the time go?

she was asking about the way we always say we’re new when there is silence between the words we say and that should do i can’t remember behind my self, behind my selfish walls so take me outside, take me to a place where i recall something about the light there’s something about the light there’s something about the light we were watching the shadows painting sand beneath the palm if i am you babe, how can i feel alone in twilight’s arms? we don’t need to keep the cold out while we’re living in the sun she said "it’s time babe, to begin now to forget what we’ve become" i said something about the light there’s something about the light there’s something about the light won’t you tell me when you’re tired of this take we can start again and try to stay awake won’t you tell me when you’re tired of this take we can start again and try to stay awake something about the light there’s something about the light there’s something about the light

give me shadows, give me hard times give me something, i want something i can’t change give me foolish, just the laughter i know you want to learn to live without a name because it’s all the "i am's" and all the small talk that make it hard to listen, make it hard to play but we could let the day pass watch the feelings fading past us save the words for things we want to say come with me babe you know we’ve got god’s attention in our silent souls if we can find the shade in the midst of all the tension that's where i'll feel at home give me secrets, it’s an old dream we can see the things the mountain doesn’t hide but the view looks different when you find yourself beside it sign the papers and wait patiently inside i will love my pain, you can do the same i think it helps to see the ocean in your eyes but there’s something lost with every moment we don’t trust time will take us to a place beyond the lies come with me babe you know we’ve got god’s attention in our silent souls if we can find the shade in the midst of all the tension that's where i’ll feel at home

if i could paint my words with colours undefined if i could be a man who moulds a million minds if i could build myself that empire of dirt if i could feel like i've forgotten how to hurt if i could see myself with nothing left to hide i'd leave it all behind if i could have you by my side yes i'd leave it all behind just to have you by my side so when i ask you where you're going you might tell me that it's fine but i have seen that love lives in your smile won't you stay with me a while? i've realised it's you i'm trying to find with all this searching that's been taking up my time i don't know why i keep on hiding my mind when i've realised it's you i’m trying to find if i could feel the foggy magic of the dream if i could know the lives of everyone i've been if i could stare the end right in the eyes and smile if i could make the judge laugh when i go up on trial if i could bare it all with nothing left to hide i'd leave it all behind if i could have you by my side yes i'd leave it all behind just to have you by my side so when i ask you where you're going you might tell me that it's fine but i have seen that love lives in your smile won't you stay with me a while? i've realised it's you i'm trying to find with all this searching that's been taking up my time i don't know why i keep on hiding my mind when i've realised it's you i’m trying to find i've realised that it's you i'm trying to find with all this searching that's been taking up my time i don't know why i keep on hiding my mind when i've realised that it's you i’m trying to find i've realised it's you i’m trying to find i've realised it's you i’m trying to find i've realised it's you

i have seen the lines of time carved like music in your mind melodies of childish dreams life is only what it seems can you know me, do you see the silent salted certainty that keeps me laying down my soul? truth is here but i am old truth is here but i am old are you sick are you bound? are you a sailor have you been lost and found? are you a messenger do you play the game? are you a gambler or are you just a name? the paint is thick, the painter tired he cannot stop till love and fire is lain down on his canvas bare for all to see, for none to care for all to see, for none to care are you rich or do you late? are you a reason will you see her backstage? are you a writer are you in it for fame? are you a gambler are you just a name? i have seen the lines of time carved like music in your mind i have seen the lines of time carved like music in your mind i have seen the lines of time carved like music in your mind i have seen the lines of time carved like music in your mind...
