Lyrics

Another Love

Written By: Christopher John Blue

How long did I wait to find you, now I’ve got you I won’t let you go
Your love is all that matters, it’s the only thing you need to show

Another love comes round again, you never know just when
Another love breaks down again, some you lose some you win

I thought nothing lasts forever and I prayed each night you’d stay with me
You said that we’d be together and I knew that it was meant to be

Another love comes round again, you never know just when
Another love breaks down again, some you lose some you win

I looked for someone that was true, someone who really loved me too
A girl who treats me like you do, my love I’m so in love with you

Another love comes round again, you never know just when
Another love breaks down again, some you lose some you win

Another love comes round again, you never know just when
Another love breaks down again, some you lose some you win

Still Awake

Written By: Christopher John Blue

It always starts out with the best line you’ve ever heard it’s really funny to me
It always gives out and lets you down and now I’m starting to see
That I don’t have to be sad if another day slips away
Even though your not here to hear me say

I’m still awake, still awake and I don’t wanna feel today
I’m still awake oh yeah
I’m still awake, still awake there’s nothing really left to say
I’m still awake

I should have ran somewhere away from you, I wanted to, I never knew love was blind
I should have listened to my heart right from the start, knew all along what I’d find
That I don’t have to be sad if another day slips away
Even though your not here to hear me say

I’m still awake, still awake and I don’t wanna feel today
I’m still awake oh yeah
I’m still awake, still awake there’s nothing really left to say
I’m still awake

Well to me it really makes no sense
Am I blinded by an innocence
Now I’ve got to take time out
Find out what it’s all about
Now did I just make this all up in my head?

I’m still awake, still awake and I don’t wanna feel today
I’m still awake oh yeah
I’m still awake, still awake there’s nothing really left to say
I’m still awake

Repeat

Sleepwalking

Written By: Christopher John Blue

You say, that you don’t understand
Astray, I took you by the hand
One day, you might just see the light
You pray, It’s gonna be alright

Something’s missing in your life
Toss’ in, turn’ in half the night
Long for peace and some relief
Rest you mind and get some sleep

Cause now is the time, to open your eyes
You wont have to try to hard to see
Now is the time, to open your eyes
You wont have to try to hard to see

Awake, sleepwalking half your life
The truth, it cuts you like a knife
Enough, you take more than your share
It’s tough, when you don’t really care

Something’s missing in your life
Toss’ in, turn’ in half the night
Long for peace and some relief
Rest you mind and get some sleep

Cause now is the time, to open your eyes
You wont have to try to hard to see
Now is the time, to open your eyes
You wont have to try to hard to see

Repeat: First verse, pre chorus & chorus

See You Cry

Written By: Christopher John Blue

When you world has turned upside down
and you thought that you figured it out
While people keep on hanging around
but they don't know what they're talking about

And they never want to see you cry
No they never want to see you cry

Open the door to your heart
Cause they never want to see, they Never want to see you cry
Should have known right from the Start that they'd never want to see, never want to see you cry.

tied up and twisted words
their meanings don't come out as they should
Some thing are never the same
Your tired of playing their game

Chorus

Mid 8 Cello solo

Chorus

Take It All Away

Written By: Christopher John Blue

I'm cold tonight and no ones here
So far away and yet so near
Turn out the light I drift away
and without sight it's here to stay

I'll Take it All Away, all away
Gotta find another way to take it all away

I'll be ok left by myself
though I can't wait
left here on a shelf
I turn to dust
blow it away
and without trust
gone is the day

Chorus

Mid 8:
Your finding hard to live without a light and sometimes you have to let it go
Tomorrow will come and you will be alright
When all of the hurt has gone you'll know

Please Take It All Away, All Away
Gotta find another way to take it all away

I'm cold tonight
