Skin 04:31
Shedding my skin For the first time I feel ready to begin Unravelling I paint it all black Ought to know by now that the hardest attack Is the one from within But this is just how it is now There's a cloud You're allowed sometimes to feel it But don't fight it out Let if flow So Like some kind of rollercoaster ride You don't have to keep it all inside Give up all hope It's always been The tightest rope That reels you in You set yourself up Nothing's right And nothing's ever enough So you keep digging But this is just how it is now There's a cloud You're allowed sometimes to feel it But don't fight it out Let if flow So Like some kind of rollercoaster ride You don't have to keep it all inside Get it all out You can dance And you can sing and shout But don't stop giving It's so easy to crawl Under the bottomless sea While the world goes on living But this is just how it is now There's a cloud You're allowed sometimes to breathe in But don't fight it out Let if flow So Like some kind of rollercoaster ride You don't have to keep it all inside

Homeground 04:04
You called me me up tonight to tell me that you're miles away Well I'm glad you made it OK Well me, I'm doing fine, I'm holding the fort, wading deep in thought And I bought all this useless stuff I don't need to try and entertain myself But it's just not working I checked on my email and it's all cheap flights and viagra sales And I miss you and I know who you are at last and it's Someone I wanna be around on my own homeground Half a bottle of wine and two movies later and I'm still trying To escape from this feeling Of incompleteness cause you're not here and I must confess I don't know why I run so fast from sadness and headlong into joy When there's really no difference at all They're two sides of the same worn out coin And I miss you and I know who you are at last and it's Someone I wanna be around on my own homeground I took a run around the park til it got dark and I got to thinking how Integrity and poverty Always seem to go hand in hand for me, and I know It's not the way it has to be and I'm so grateful to life For constantly showing me my hypocrisy All the people I blame, well they're just the same as me And it makes me smile to see And I miss you and I know who you are at last and it's Someone I wanna be around on my own homeground I miss you and I know who you are at last and it's Someone I wanna be around on my own homeground I miss you and I know who you are at last and it's Someone I wanna be around on my own homeground

Perfect Love 03:02
This time it's true I wanna be with you I know what I'll do I'm gonna stay with you It's not a perfect love no far from it But it's what I got and I'll run with it It's not a perfect love no far from it But it's what I got and I'll work with it Because This time it's true I wanna be with you I know what I'll do I'm gonna stay with you It's not a perfect love no far from it But it's what I got and I'll run with it It's not a perfect love no far from it But it's what I got and I'll work with it Oh no Don't you ever turn your back on me Well I'll let you down And I'll set you free No don't you ever hang up on me It's not a perfect love but it's meant to be Because This time it's true I wanna be with you I know what I'll do I'm gonna stay with you You tell me that it's all there waiting for me out there You help me to be all there Really to be The best of me This time it's true I wanna be with you I know what I'll do I'm gonna stay with you It's not a perfect love no far from it But it's what I got and I'll run with it It's not a perfect love no far from it But it's what I got and I'll work with it Oh no Don't you ever turn your back on me Well I'll let you down And I'll set you free No don't you ever hang up on me It's not a perfect love but it's meant to be

Save Me 03:41
I walked in to that old trap Took off my shoes and I lay down to sleep And when I woke I was under attack I never knew hurt could run so deep Who's gonna save me from myself? I don't know who that is Who's gonna save me from myself? Think I'm alone on this Hook me on up to your happy machine Pump sweet distraction in to my veins And don't let me look back at what I might have been I don't wanna learn I just want things to change Who's gonna save me from myself? I don't even know who that is Who's gonna save me from myself? Think I'm alone on this The moon came up and the crickets cried And the stars tell me this, now, could be enough But soon those clever little demons begin to bite And I can hear his voice saying Don't give up, never give up Cause who's gonna save you from yourself? You don't know what that is Who's gonna save you from yourself You're not alone on this Oh you're not alone on this You're not alone on this

about

We shall not cease from exploration
And the end of all our exploring
Will be to arrive where we started
And know the place for the first time.

T.S. Eliot - "Little Gidding" (the last of his Four Quartets)
