Dance in the noise

Heavy questions wind

Through my mind

My thoughts intertwined

Then I hear your voice

Through the noise

and I have no choice

It feels like somebody’s calling my name

It feels like somebody’s calling my name

It feels like somebody’s calling my name

It feels like you’re calling calling

Sounds echo through my mind

But I hear one at a time

I hope you’re not here to rescue me

My hair’s not long enough to climb

But would you dance in the noise

We can dance in the noise

My heart beats proud

Ringing loud

Through the lifting cloud

And the path is clear

It leads me here

As you draw me near

It feels like somebody’s calling my name

It feels like somebody’s calling my name

It feels like somebody’s calling my name

It feels like you’re calling calling

Dance in the noise

Eyes

When the streets are silent

I come alive

When reflections disappear

I’m whole

Times they tell me to live out loud

I put my eyes to the world

I put my eyes to the world

And you put your eyes on me

Put your eyes on me

I am whatever you see

Heartbeat occupies me

I am alive

Looking out into the world

I breathe

Imagination brought me here

I show my heart to the world

I put my heart to the world

And you put your eyes on me

Put your eyes on me

I am whatever you see

I might hide what you don’t seek

This is my body

I own it

It’s my face

I wear it

It’s my voice

I sing it

Yeah

Put your eyes on me

I am whatever you see

I might hide what you don’t seek

Parity

I run alone

But you make me wanna walk with you

And I’m safe at home

But you make me wanna leave

And I have my doubts

But somehow you quiet them

A silent mind

For the first time

Part of me’s afraid

That if I choose to walk with you

That I will leave

A part of me behind

But if I say

I’m here on your side

Would you be

On my side too?

Would you get lost with me?

Would you show me parity?

Could you get lost with me?

Find a way with me?

Run away with me

Come with me now

And drown out my fears with me

And yes they ring loud

But I can’t hear them with you

Can you show me

A new way that we can be

Whole and side by side

Sometimes you just have to trust

Would you get lost with me?

Would you show me parity?

Could you get lost with me?

Find a way with me

Run away with me

About the Rain

Shallow waters kept us high and dry

Til the clouds rolled in to spoil the sky

Your eyes saw more than mine could conceal

And if I hold your gaze I hope I heal

Our smiles were sore our faces worn

The sky had torn

So let the water fall

Let the water fall

Let it rain down on me

Let it let me scream

Echoing silently

Finding new ways to breathe

Let the fall forgive it all

I have felt the world’s weight on my shoulders

And as it span I turned older and colder and older and colder

Time revealed more than I dared to know

As I question the answers I gave long ago

Our smiles were sore our faces worn

The sky had torn

So let the water fall

Let the water fall

Let the waterfall take me away

Find Myself Lost

Quiet memories collide

They trace the turning of the tide

We knew that innocence was frail

We mixed emotions, fear and lust

The habits turned to instincts turned to dust

Temptation roamed to twist the tale

You couldn’t face solitude alone

Now I know your face better than my own

So I’ll run, run like I can hide

To a place where hopes and fears collide

And I’ll find myself lost

I’ll find myself lost

We can’t relive a pretence

That our reality made sense

So kill the chorus of fire

Stuck in your mirror I was free

Only to reflect what I could see

Now shattered I’ll be cursed til thoughts expire

Memories fade as I take time

Still I know your face better than I know mine

I’ll back up til I back down

And I’ll be blinded by that sound

Still I’ll run like I can hide

But as I close my eyes

I see yours

So I’ll run, run like I can hide

I’ll run, run like I can hide

Mirage

Let the light refract

Keep illusions intact

Our purpose and delight

Will pass with the night

The surface holds relief

From all that lies beneath

Let’s take to the stage of sabotage

Get lost in our Mirage

I know my eyes deceive me

And I know this ends where it begins

I will chase the light until it fades

Until you touch me and I don’t feel a thing

Illuminations left their mark

They only dazzled in the dark

Now I’m cold from the light of day

As it melts facades away

I can’t be smitten and content

I have only desired through a lament

When the burning questions take charge

And take us back to our Mirage

And I miss you like I never knew you

And I’m sure I never really did

And I can’t remember how it felt to kiss you

Do you?

Do you?

Do you know …

Rising Gravity

I wear my heart on the outside

I cut my teeth now I smile wide

It’s a new kind of real life

I dream of you in black and white

From the corners of my mind

You talked about me now so do I

And I hear you

I know you

I hear I know

I I I I I I

I’m rising

Tell me about gravity

I’m rising

Tell me about the fall

I’m rising

Tell me all I won’t be

I’m rising

Cos I have heard it all

And I know you

I’m just skin and meat and bones

Like everyone that I have ever known

And I know more than I’ve been shown

I hear you whisper in my ear

Words I used to know to fear

Now come and dance with me my dear

And I hear you

I know you

I hear I know

I I I I I I

I’m rising

Runaway

You kissed me and it hurt

You kissed me and it hurt

I saw the bubble burst

I watched the bubble slowly burst

Now my familiar ground has gone

That hollow ground

Swallowed me down

Maybe I should run away

Don’t know why I’m still here

What do you have over me?

What will it take (for me) to disappear

Make me run away

Make me a runaway

You touched me and it burned

You touched me and it burned

And I didn’t pull away

And now I feel so much worse

And that familiar ground has gone

That hollow hole

Swallowed me … whole

What

What if

What if I

What if I run

What if I run to

What if I run to you

Iceberg

Keep your eyes on the tip of the iceberg

Don’t feel the dark and cold

Don’t look beneath the beautiful

Touch don’t hold

Keep your eyes at the tip of the iceberg

Keep your eyes on the blues and whites

Watch the glimmer on the surface

Dance in the light

But I want / But I want /  But I want

But I want you closer

I want to feel the fall

I want you to see it all

Like noone’s ever known this before

Hold me while I fall

Hold me while I file

If you don’t look beyond the tip of the iceberg

If I hide what lies beneath

I can only drown in

Secrets I keep

And I want / And I want / And I want / And I want

I want you closer

And I want / And I want / And I want

To bring you closer

I want to feel the fall

I want you to see it all

Like noone’s ever been here before

Hold me while I fall

Hold me while I file

Would you would you would you would you

Could you could you could you could you

Would you would you would you would you

hold me when I fall

Human Animals

My heart beats so loud I can’t hear what my head says

When nothing has changed but nothing is the same

We’re intertwined

But as the world spins, we unwind

And you can’t help how you feel

We’re animals

I feel you here still I crave your touch And as I feel nothing –

it means so much

Your hollow lies echo in mine

Can we call a truce

And I can’t help how you feel

We’re animals

So push the sparks til they collide

Force the stars til they align

Rearrange the pathways of our minds

In our attempts to be human

But we’re only human

Now your eyes can wander my body can roam

You make your escape and I find my way alone

We can’t help how we feel

We’re animals
