Perfect Circle

Outa My Head
You mean nothing to me
A distant memory
A faded dream
And I don’t care
If you’re out there
It seems a lifetime since you went

I guess it was something you said
You came in my world like a prayer
Since you no one compares
Now I can’t get you outa my head

You see, you see what I see
You little mystery
Liar and cheat
Cos my world
Was just a quiet world
Until I found out where you’d been

You see you’re nothing to me
Now your life is in your hands

Under the Sun
When I reach out for you my love
Always wondering just what you’re thinking of
As the silence comes between us all in black
I realise you’re not coming back

It’s okay, it doesn’t matter anyway
When we see what we have become
It’s alright, we’ll make it through the night
Cos there is nothing new under the sun

One fleeting moment so hard to hold
I had the chance to lay you down all in gold
From your mouth come words I can’t understand
And I realise you’re not coming back

We Can Make This Day
Don’t walk away from the life we made
Don’t get hung up on a plan
Take shelter from the coming storm
And babe I’ll get back when I can

When I’m not with you
And I can’t see you
Please just hold on

We will make a change
Throw it all away
We will start again anew
We can make this day
Better than yesterday
We can make a change it’s true

When I’m far away
Keep your fear at bay
Live each moment like your last
Put your mind ease
Is this where you want to be?
And babe I’ll get back when I can

Through hours of darkness
Over miles of ocean
I will come home

Life, real life
What’s it all about
I thought I told you things weren’t great
I’d thought of everything
And now you’ve gone so far away
I can’t even tell
If you were ever really here at all

When I look into your eyes
It comes as no surprise
When we feel this state of grace
You’re still here

There’s a hundred million stars
Shining bright in outer space
There’s no other place like ours
A slowly dying sun
Reflecting everyone’s fate

Perfect Circle
Feel a weight across your shoulder
Feel a load upon your back
Each day a little colder
Each year a little more off track
As the darkness surrounds you
And brings you to your knees
There’s a place you will remember
Some kinda hope, some little peace
Stop waiting for the tide to turn
Don’t blame it on unlucky stars

No matter where you are
No matter where you’ve been
Start living through this life

In a place outside of nowhere
Take a walk across the sand
Try to draw a perfect circle
Just to see if you can
There can be a time to believe in
And hear the truth once again
To feel the warmth of another
And rise above the pain
Stop waiting for the tide to turn
Don’t blame it on unlucky stars

There’s a better way to change your track
What brings you down, what holds you back
It‘s all up to you to see it through
In good or bad or mad or sad
There’s a better way to cut right through
So take a chance and let it loose
Stop waiting for the tide to turn
Don’t burn, don’t burn, don’t burn
The Believer
Free me from the bonds you hold me to
Believe me I pose no danger to you girl
And my lover I will be there waiting for you
Like no other there’ll be no hesitating for you girl

Take it up high
Take it down low
Take it on easy
You know it ain’t easy to be the believer

My world is a strange and quiet world
And my life has been filled with precious jewels
There’ll be no changing won’t follow the latest thing
Cos your freedom is always waiting round the bend
Ballad of Jeanie Rose
Jeanie was a good girl she was seventeen
Looking for adventure but she’d never been
Just one lover and that was enough
She took a little test but she was out of luck

Johnny was bored he was out all night
But somehow good times always turned to a fight
In the morning couldn’t raise his head
And then he’d go out and do it all again

She says life goes on
Treat me bad and baby I’ll be gone
Jeanie had the baby made a promise that day
Her child would never want in any way
Johnny was crazy her father was right
It never would be easy having him in her life

Now she’s older living on her own
Seems like good times are so far gone
Dreaming of life she’s only seen
On the pages of a magazine
My Loneliness
I’m stuck on your face
Can’t remember your name
Going around in circles
I’m back at the start
Wipe the slate clean
Trying to change the future
Wherever you are
Whatever you do
I can only hope you’re happy now

My loneliness cuts me to shreds
I disappear without a trace
And I can’t believe I let you slip away
And now I’m never gonna see your face

I look for a sign
Searching the stars
Trying to get my bearing
Guiding me on
Leading me home
But they don’t shine so brightly now
Never Be Able
Now and then I’m down at the edges
I keep it all to myself
I hideaway keeping my distance
Want you and no one else

I’ll never be able to keep waiting on my own
I’ll never be able to keep waiting all night long
Now that we’re older we can make it on our own
I’ll never be able

So here we are both of us lonely
And searching for something else
No matter how hard I keep trying
I want you all to myself

Now I’m watching as she walks away
Now she’s fading away
And I don’t know why
She could live again
She could breathe again
In my mind
Hollywood Whisper
Did he tell that he needs her
That he just can’t live without her
It was a night to remember
It was never meant to end this way

Put it on a big screen
Tearing at their heartstrings
You couldn’t drag me away
Drowning in emotion leading to redemption
The hero lives to fight another day

Did he say it in a whisper
That he could’ve been a contender
Say that he’s never going to leave her
Than walk away right out of frame

I love your way
And I love the way you say it
Any old cliché sounds new
Everything is wonderful
When you’re riding high
Everything is possible
When you feel inspired
But the valley below
Can lead me to fall
When the road ahead is long
Testing my faith
Cos I’m not that strong

There’s a stranger in my head
Watching from inside
Can’t believe that you can’t see it
Just look into my eyes
The night is my friend
Can’t get out of bed
Was a light in my head
But now it’s gone
Now that you know
That I’m not that strong

Don’t you know that anyone could see
That there’s really nothing wrong with me
I have everything I’d hoped
A kids, wife and home
And that makes me strong
