Lyrics

What I'm Talking About

Written By: Adam Roche

Look at the time.
Yeah, it slipped away from me again. That's been happening a lot lately, this disease, it spreads quickly.
But don't get me wrong, I enjoy you thoroughly.
It's just these feelings came on quick. I turned my back and that is when they hit.

Yeah you know what I am talking about.
Yeah you know what I am talking about.

Wish I could put it into words a little easier for you.
I wish I could a lot of things when it comes to you.
I wish I could wrap you in these arms and whisper in your ears.
I wish I could, I wish I could, but I'm afraid that's up to you.

Yeah you know what I'm talking about
Yeah you know what I'm talking about

And if you were an angel sent to watch over me, would you tell me?
or would you keep that a mystery?
I feel so close to you when I am in your arms.
Cause you know, yeah you know I will be waiting.

I guess it's just me, but these things seem a little easier when you're around.
It's your smile, it's your gaze, it lightens up my days and I am glad to be alive.
And if all that ever happens with you is simply knowing you, well then I am forever in your favour.

Yeah you know what I'm talking about
Yeah you know what I'm talking about

and that's why I fell for you.

Leave It All Behind

Written By: Adam Roche

Did you read the one about the man
Who sold everything he had for a buck?
Did you read the one about the man
who was so far down on his luck?
He left is heart in someone elses home
Turned off the light and switched off the phone

He left it all behind
He left it all behind
He compromised his time

There's a fine line between patience and dignity
There's a fine line between friendship and extacy
There's a fine line between the ones you love and the ones you need
There's a fine line between you and me

So leave it all behind
So leave it all behind
Just leave it all behind
But don't compromise my time

So you can leave a happy home if it makes you feel a little better
You can leave it all behind
You can leave a happy home if it makes you feel a little better
But dont, no dont you dare compromise, just dont you compromise my time

Just leave it all behind
Go on and leave it all behind
Leave it all behind

Daylight

Written By: Adam Roche

A leaf falls from tree
It falls gently to the ground
It's not conscious of the views
While floating down
It had no choice but to fall
It was just time, it was destiny

Like a wave crashing upon the floor
It's a timeless certainty
Coming back for more
You try to ignore it
But it sits there, quite perfectly

And the daylight
Won't last as long
As it did that night
The calmest of my life
Alone in the shadows

As a youngster I dreamt of eternity
These days I'm hoping for some kind of certainty
That this heart counts for something, just like it should.

And the daylight
Won't last as long
As it did that night
The calmest of my life
Alone in the shadows
