Always

It’s been too long since we spoke
And forever after we shared a joke
Where did they go lazy days
Lost in the sunshine of what was said

Always on my mind
Calling deep inside

I remember cars and bars
Deserted back streets underneath the stars
Our favourite places safe and sound
Fleeting moments captured in time

Always on my mind
Calling deep inside

All things change it seems to be
Or just this space surrounding me
Right underneath it all
I think you’ll find what you’ve been looking for

Can we rekindle what we had before?
If it’s lost maybe it can be restored
My apprehension is soon short-lived
your body language so intense

Always on my mind
Calling deep inside

All things change it seems to be
Or just this space surrounding me
Right underneath it all
I think you’ll find what you’ve been looking for

Bright Eyes


When the night fell and I watched you breathe
The moon on your face reflected on me
And I’d blown so cold and pushed you away
Made you feel cold and old
For more than a day
For more than a day

No more hiding in the shadows
Yesterday’s man doesn’t matter
Bright eyes burn together

When the day came white all around
You’d lain awake again a darkness in your eyes
The silence was so loud, it forced me to speak
Tables are turning
My words are cheap
My words are cheap

No more hiding in the shadows
Yesterday’s man doesn’t matter
Bright eyes burn together

When the night fell and I caught your smile
A flame on your face a flicker in your mind
And I’d blown so cold and pushed you away
The closeness that we’ve found now
Its here to stay
Its here to stay…

No more hiding in the shadows
Yesterday’s man doesn’t matter
Bright eyes burn together …

More than meets the Eye


It s hard to say what’s tucked away
On the inside that you can see

With a paper smile its undercover time
On the outside make believe.

Digging deep now and try to hide it
Creeping up close now so why deny it
I can’t say nothing
There’s more than meets the eye

Its hard to be what you see in me
On the outside you just cant tell

I’m living in a bubble, hey its a lot less pain
On the outside wear on your sleeve

Digging deep now and try to hide it
Creeping up close now so why deny it
I can’t say nothing
There’s more than meets the eye

It s hard to say what’s tucked away
On the inside that you can see

Digging deep now and try to hide it
Creeping up close now so why deny it
I can’t say nothing
There’s more than meets the eye

There’s more than meets the eye

The Iceman


I remember summer in the city of light
Step up on the tourist trail
Another weary traveller destination found
Faces on the subway train

I watched him approaching from the corner of my eye
He was looking for a sacred shrine
Asking directions from Passers by
He’s sure he won’t be recognized

Here’s the Iceman
Iceman

The pen and sword now combined
Did Oscar change your mind
History will define your contribution
Iceman

And all those clever things I wish I’d said
There still running all around inside my head
Inside my head
Inside my head

Here’s the Iceman
Iceman. ..


Photographs all taken hands have been shaken
Its time to go our separate ways
The beautiful smile in the killer’s eyes
I find it hard to reconcile
maybe it’s the price we have to pay

Here’s the Iceman
Iceman


The pen and sword now combined
Did Oscar change your mind
History will define your contribution

Here’s the Iceman
Iceman Now nnnow nnnow
