Strangers

CAN YOU SEE OR FEEL IT 
BECAUSE THERE’S REALLY NOTHING LEFT INSIDE 
A MEMORY OF WHAT WE ONCE WERE 
THAT’S FADED AND DISTORTED ALL OVER TIME 

WE USED TO BE LIKE BROTHERS IN ARMS 
WAGING A WAR AGAINST TIME 
BUT NOW WE’RE JUST TWO STRANGERS AT NIGHT 
LOST WITHIN OUR OWN LIVES 

I THOUGHT I REALLY NEW YOU 
BUT REALLY I JUST COULDN’T SEE PAST ALL THE LIES 
THE LOVE THAT WE HAD ONCE SHARED 
WAS BEATEN BY THE WORDS AND THE EGO-EYES 

AND NOW I CAN’T BEGIN TO REACH YOU 
NO MATTER HOW HARD I CAN TRY 
YOU’RE WAY TOO FAR GONE FOR MY WORDS 
BEYOND ANY REASON OF DOUBT 

LIKE A PERFECT STRANGER 
YOU HAD COME INTO MY LIFE 
AND LIKE A PERFECT STRANGER 
YOU HAD LEFT WITHOUT A FIGHT 

OH, MY,,, 

CAN YOU SEE OR FEEL IT 
BECAUSE THERE’S REALLY NOTHING LEFT INSIDE 
A MEMORY OF WHAT WE ONCE WERE 
THAT’S FADED AND DISTORTED ALL OVER TIME 

AND NOW I CAN’T BEGIN TO REACH YOU 
NO MATTER HOW HARD I CAN TRY 
YOU’RE WAY TOO FAR GONE FOR MY WORDS 
BEYOND ANY REASON OF DOUBT 

LIKE A PERFECT STRANGER 
YOU HAD COME INTO MY LIFE 
AND LIKE A PERFECT STRANGER 
YOU HAD LEFT WITHOUT A FIGHT

Behind Those Eyes

I FELL INTO IT 
A TWIST OF FATE 
NO ONE TO GUIDE ME 
THROUGH ALL THE HAZE 

A SHROUD OF MYSTERY 
SOME SIMPLE WORDS 
CAN HAVE TRUE MEANING 
CAN CURE THE HURT 

I HOPE THAT YOU FEEL THE SAME TOO 
ALL THAT I HAVE I CAN GIVE TO YOU 
YOU KNOW THAT I’M NOT ALL OF MIND 
A HEART REALLY BEATS BEHIND THOSE EYES 

I HAD A VISION 
I HAD A DREAM 
A HOUSE OF PLENTY 
FOR YOU AND ME 

OH, ON A MOUNTAIN 
BY A STREAM 
IN A GARDEN 
UNDER A TREE… 

I HOPE THAT YOU FEEL THE SAME TOO 
ALL THAT I HAVE I CAN GIVE TO YOU 
YOU KNOW THAT I’M NOT ALL OF MIND 
A HEART REALLY BEATS BEHIND THOSE EYES 

I HOPE THAT YOU FEEL THE SAME TOO 
ALL THAT I HAVE I CAN GIVE TO YOU 
YOU KNOW THAT I’M NOT ALL OF MIND 
A HEART REALLY BEATS BEHIND THOSE EYES

Lies, Lies, Lies

I KNOW YOU WON’T 
SAY WHAT YOU MEAN 
FOR FEAR OF FALLING OUT 
OF FAVOUR WITH ME 

A LIFE OF LIES 
LEADS YOU NOWHERE 
BUT TO DARKENED HALLS 
AND SINFUL STARES 

SO YOU MUST SEEK OUT 
WHAT YOUR ARE SEARCHING 
IN ALL YOU DO 
AND WHEN YOU FIND OUT 
WHAT YOU ARE MISSING 
THEN YOUR LIGHT WILL SHINE ON THROUGH 

TAKE CARE, BEWARE 
OF ALL YOU DO 
FOR IN THE END IT ALL 
WILL COME ON BACK TO YOU 

A FRIEND, A FOE 
DO YOU EVEN KNOW 
THERE WAS A TIME YOU DID 
BUT NOW IT’S DEAD 

SO YOU MUST SEEK OUT 
WHAT YOUR ARE SEARCHING 
IN ALL YOU DO 
AND WHEN YOU FIND OUT 
WHAT YOU ARE MISSING 
THEN YOUR LIGHT WILL SHINE ON THROUGH 

YOU MUST FIND PEACE IN YOURSELF 
BEFORE LOVING SOMEONE ELSE 
DO NOT SELL THIS LIFE SO SHORT 
THERE’S ALL THIS AND MORE 
A LIE IS JUST A LIES 
THERE’S NOTHING TO DENY 
IF YOU FEEL LIKE YOU’VE BEEN WRONGED 
DON’T LISTEN TO THIS SONG
 

Side B
Words by Rishi Dhir

Yesterday's Gurl

IF NOT FOR YESTERDAY’S GIRL 
IF NOT FOR THE LOVE THAT HURT 
YOU WOULDN’T SEE THROUGH ALL THESE DAYS 
YOU WOULDN’T SEE DIAMONDS FROM DIRT 

ANY CARRY ON 
YOU LEARNED TO MOVE ON TOO 

BECAUSE OF YESTERDAY’S GIRL 
YOU LEFT A ROOF FOR THE SEA 
BUT FOR YESTERDAY’S GIRL 
SHE DIDN’T HAVE ROOM THEE 

SHE BUILT A WALL 
TOO THICK AND TALL TO 

SMASH THEM DOWN AND FEEL THE SUN 
STEP OUT FROM THE DARK TO GREET EVERYONE 
SHE WAS NOT WHO YOU HAD THOUGHT 
THERE IS SO MUCH MORE THAT YOU’VE BEEN TAUGHT 

A NOTE TO YESTERDAY’S GIRL 
WRITTEN IN WORDS OF HEAT 
“YOU’VE NO SENSE OF HURT 
UNTIL YOU’VE LIVED LIKE ME 

I’VE BUILT THESE WALLS 
TOO THICK AND TALL TO” 

SMASH THEM DOWN AND FEEL THE SUN 
STEP OUT FROM THE DARK TO GREET EVERYONE 
SHE WAS NOT WHO YOU HAD THOUGHT 
THERE IS SO MUCH MORE THAT YOU’VE BEEN TAUGHT 

SHE BUILT A WALL 
TOO THICK AND TALL TO 

SMASH THEM DOWN AND FEEL THE SUN 
STEP OUT FROM THE DARK TO GREET EVERYONE 
SHE WAS NOT WHO YOU HAD THOUGHT 
THERE IS SO MUCH MORE THAT YOU’VE BEEN TAUGHT

Savage Soul

I CAN HEAR SO MUCH IN YOUR CRIES 
AND I CAN SEE SO MUCH IN YOUR BIG BROWN EYES 

THE LIVES YOU’VE LEFT, TO NEVER RETURN 
ALL THE LOVES YOU LOST AND THE LOVES THAT YOU YEARNED 

AS YOU GAZE UPON A SAVAGE SOUL 
A BROKEN SPIRIT 
PLEASE REMEMBER THAT WE ONCE WERE YOUNG 
AND HAD OUR SECRETS 

AT LOSS FOR WORDS, YOU’VE SO MUCH TO SAY 
OF ALL THE THINGS YOU’VE SEEN IN YOUR YOUNGER DAYS 

SO NEW TO US, BUT AS OLD AS THE SUN 
YOUR LIGHT SHINES THROUGH IT ALL 
MY SWEET LITTLE ONE 

AS YOU GAZE UPON A SAVAGE SOUL 
A BROKEN SPIRIT 
PLEASE REMEMBER THAT WE ONCE WERE YOUNG 
AND HAD OUR SECRETS 

BELIEVE THAT OUR LOVE IS SO PRECIOUS 
NO NEED TO BE AFRAID 
IF WE JUST SAY WHAT WE ARE FEELING 
OUR LOVE WILL GUIDE OUR WAY
