In Search of Better Days

Lyrics

 

Love Born In Flames

 

I'm sorry for the things I said, and for the times I tuned you out

It’s crazy how we hurt the ones we love, and truly care about

 

You’re a blessing in my life, even though we push and pull, it’s all right

The attraction is that we are opposites, that keeps us both together

 

Stars lose their shine, it’s hard to see the light

When love is in decline (Some just let go)

We carry on, holding on strong, ‘till the end of the line

Yes we go on and on and on

Believing in our song

This love was born in flames

That’s why it still remains

 

Somehow I hope that we can reconcile, not waste another day

If the madness should unfold I know we can, find some tenderness

 

You complete me in my life, you’re the one I need, my all and all 

Lets find a way to bring it back, put the promise of our future back on track

 

Stars lose their shine, it’s hard to see the light

When love is in decline (Some just let go)

We carry on, holding on strong, ‘till the end of the line

Yes we go on and on and on

Believing in our song

This love was born in flames

That’s why it still remains

Just Say Nothing

 

If I’m a fool for loving you, It’s the way I want it

Keep me a prisoner for your love

There’s no place I’d rather be, It’s the way I planned it

You can gladly throw away the key

 

Babe you got something, something that I need

Babe you got something that brings me back for more

 

What you’re doing don’t stop

You are the one, the only one

What you’re doing don’t stop

You are the one for me

 

Just say nothin’, baby hold me close

Just say nothin’, I don’t wish for nothin’ more

For there’s nothin’, nothing that I know

There is nothing that compares to you

 

Take your time and make it last, It’s the way I like it

I’m not gonna try to hide my love

All the things you do to me, Babe you know I need it

Just keep on doing what you do to me

 

Bring me back for more, back for more

Bring me back for more, back for more

Everyday Grind

 

Ooo baby, Ooo baby

The bottom line's been reached

Our love a long time breached

The path that brought us here

Vaporized… into the atmosphere

Into the atmosphere

 

The rains have drenched the fire

Of yesterday’s desire

Our world now broke in two

Slowly fades… Into the palest blue

Into the palest of blue

 

I've have to get away, and let my mind unwind

Shake out the everyday grind

I have to find the will, to leave it all behind

Before I lose my mind

 

Ooo baby, Ooo baby

Honey you go yours

And baby I'll go mine

Let nature realign

No compromise… habitually maligned

Habitually maligned

 

For longer than I can remember

We’ve been alone even when we we’re together

Racing Through The Bends

 

The seasons are all lost on me in my subterranean lair

There’s no reason for me to be coming up for air

You’re the one and only who can tempt me to be out there

They tell you things about me and I love that you don’t care

 

I’m a sucker for these late nights

Burning candles at both ends

I’m the deer in your headlights

When you’re racing through the bends

 

Getting’ down in Crown Heights

Where the party still ascends

I’m the deer in your headlights

When you’re racing through the bends

 

When the darkness finally comes I hear you calling me

Through the sound of the distant drums it echoes back to me

I hate the taste of jealousy, won’t let my soul consume

Time with you is temporary baby, so let the dance resume

 

I’m a sucker for these late nights

Burning candles at both ends

I’m the deer in your headlights

When you’re racing through the bends

 

Getting’ down in Crown Heights

Where the party still ascends

I’m the deer in your headlights

When you’re racing through the bends

Love's Revival

 

Until you, I never knew, it’s true

What I desired

Searching but never knowing,

When love would come around

All that changed, my dreams came true, when you

Came into my life

Then you had to go, for reasons that I did not know

 

I can only hope that soon the winds will change

And you’ll return

 

Waiting the return of love’s revival

A moment that could never be too soon

Yes I’m waiting for the spring of love’s revival

Like a flower wishing for an early bloom

 

Everyday, you still inspire, my world

When I think of you

Only wished I knew,

What’s kept you gone so long?

You should know, though time has passed, that I

I’m still holding on

Something oh so strong, that I could not just let it go

 

I can only hope that soon the winds will change

And you’ll return

 

Come on home, it’s not too late

Wont you come on home it’s not too late

Selfishly

 

Daylight hurts my eyes

Waking up roadside, been driving through the night

Feels right moving on

Left you a message, I won’t be coming home

I know your friends are talkin’ “bout me now

 

Don’t fret about my groove, I got another plan

Selfishly I’m where I wanna be

Of course I understand, guilty yes I am

Selfishly, I’m happy to be free

 

It’s time we realised

I know that we should have been more than getting by

Good things from the past

Can’t keep us holding to a dream that’s been and gone

I know your friends are talkin’ “bout me now

 

Don’t fret about my groove, I got another plan

Selfishly I’m where I wanna be

Of course I understand, guilty yes I am

Selfishly, I’m happy to be free

 

Should have known better

Think it over

 

I said I’m where I wanna be

Gave you the best of me

And now I’m free.

Love Be The Messenger

 

In between the broken skies and the rivers of our dreams

We’ve been left, running scared battle scarred and bloody

To love and fight in equal parts our destiny it seems

It ain’t black and it ain’t white is only just a maybe

 

This is an S.O.S. Spelling out the danger

This is an S.O.S. We need to come together

We’re in need of a call to awareness, sow the seeds of greatness

We’re in need of a call to awareness

Love be the messenger (Repeat)

 

Raise high the monuments, to the memories of the past

With infants forced to take up arms, all innocence is gone

Our sons and daughters need a future that will last

Got to put this wrong to right, the madness can’t go on

 

This is an S.O.S. Spelling out the danger

This is an S.O.S. We need to come together

We’re in need of a call to awareness, say it’s bold and free and fearless

We’re in need of a call to awareness

Love be the messenger (Repeat)

 

We’re in need of a change of guards [Answer]

We need it bad and we need it now [Answer]

A future bright is not on the cards [Answer]

Make those changes make em now [Answer]

The pressure brings us to our knees [Answer]

There’s nothing in this world for free [Answer]

If home is where the hatred is [Answer]

Soon you’ll be a refugee [Answer]

 

We’re in need of a call to awareness – Bold and free and fearless

We’re in need of a call to awareness

Love be the messenger (Repeat)

I See The Light

 

It’s an hour from sundown, another day gone

Reminds me the first time, lost in your gaze

 

I knew your heart was willing. No question in my mind

Just like the morning breeze, with you I was at ease

 

All of the loneliness I knew before

Became a distant past

Now I can’t stand the rain

Without you here to watch it fall

 

There are no illusions. I see the light

There are no illusions. I see the light

 

We both came from different worlds

Expressed ourselves with different words

What you made me feel

Was greater than I’d ever known

 

So clear and so obvious

That only a fool could not see

I can’t forget the day we met

For in that moment my life began again

 

There are no illusions. I see the light

There are no illusions. I see the light

Oh I see the light. I see the light. I see the light

Move It Up

 

Your love’s been gone so long

And I’ve been getting strong

You sang that same old song

Talkin’ ‘bout how you didn’t belong

All the things that you put me through

When my heart belonged to you

The dark spaces that you took me to

When you ran to somebody new

 

Now your world is up in smoke, don’t you blow it in my eyes

Move it up - Now that I’m ahead of the game

Move it up - I’m never going back again

Move it up - Now that I’m ahead of the game

Move it up

 

Can’t keep coming back for more

I’ve heard it all before

Keep knocking at the same old door

It wont open ‘cos I know the score

I use to break when I heard you cry

This time, no it just wont fly

You never meant it when you said goodbye

Well that’s just another lie

 

Now your world is up in smoke, don’t you blow it in my eyes

Move it up - Now that I’m ahead of the game

Move it up - I’m never going back again

Move it up - Now that I’m ahead of the game

Move it up

Crystal Walls

 

Crystal walls they cannot hide

The secrets of your crystal world

I can see right through you now

As I navigate your crystal maze

 

I’m not gonna try and stop you

I know you’re running, running, running with your head

Nothin’ that I say, is gonna please you

I know what’s running, running through your mind

 

I can’t understand why you try to shut me out

I’ve always been the one who sees you

I can count the days before you turn about

I know I’ll be the one you run to

 

Crystal walls they cannot hide

The secrets of your crystal world

I can see right through you now

As I navigate your crystal maze

 

I’m not gonna try to change you

I know you’re running, running, running with your head

There’s no more I can do to please you

I know what’s running, running through your mind

 

Let me have a say, before you walk away

I’ve always been the one who sees you

So go ahead and play the games you always play

I know I’ll be the one you run to

All I Ever Wanted

 

I step away, you draw me back

A compromise that I’ll despise

The truth concealed by royal pretence

My fate is set, I will regret

 

And all I ever wanted, was just to be needed, needed by you

From the day we started, Should have known this love was blighted

Cos all we ever do is undo

 

You do your worst, I spit my curse

I bear the scars of your embrace

The pain concealed by love immense

This disconnect, I won’t forget

 

And all I ever wanted, was just to be needed, needed by you

From the day we started, Should have known this love was blighted

Cos all we ever do is undo

 

The first kiss was an apocalypse

Revealing more than I’d bargained for

Forbidden fruit, you were never mine

 

And all I ever wanted, was just to be needed, needed by you

From the day we started, Should have known this love was blighted

Cos all we ever do is undo

Better Days

 

Two souls in search of a feeling, coming together, coming together

Always looking for meaning, in search of each other, closer than ever

Looking for a future from these inner city streets

Wondering what lies ahead to see what tomorrow brings

Looking for better days, in search of better days

Searching for better days, in search of better days

Looking for better days

Oh better days yes, Oh I

 

Two minds thinking the same thing, coming together, coming together

Always, always believing, finding forever, finding forever

Looking for a future from these inner city streets

Wondering what lies ahead to see what tomorrow brings

Looking for better days, in search of better days

Searching for better days, in search of better days

 

Young hearts restless and moving trying to keep together

Can’t stop no (Repeat 3 times)

Searching for better days, searching

Looking for better days, looking oh yeah

 

Looking for a future from these inner city streets

Wondering what lies ahead to see what tomorrow brings

Looking for a future from these inner city streets

Wondering what lies ahead to see what tomorrow brings

Searching for better days, in search of better days

Always searching, always looking

Better days, in search of better days, searching for better days

 

Searching for better days, looking for better days yeah

Searching for better days, looking for beautiful brighter days

Better days

Looking for beautiful brighter, searching for better days

Searching for better days, looking for better days

Searching for better days, looking for better days

Looking for better days yeah
