Lyrics

Let It Go

Written By: Damian Cox


Everyone needs to need someone
Needs to be someone
Who needs somebody
And I ask you - tell me who are you
You’re just someone who
Needs somebody

And I wonder what becomes of you
When she finally says you’re through

Let it go

Now there’s no way I can live in cave
Sitting cross-legged all day
Needing nothing
But at the same time
Must I constantly whine
Nothing’s ever quite right
Always needing something

And I wonder what becomes of me
If I finally break free

Let it go

Everybody says it’s a real rough ride yeah
Stiffen your lip and hold on tight yeah

No, no, no

Let it go

The Night The Lights Went Out

Written By: Damian Cox

There was a once upon a time
That I once was thought was … all right
Now I realise it was a once-in-a-life time

Of course I threw it all away
Building cities in my name
Trying to buy my way through heaven’s gate

Now there’re no cites to be found
I burned them all to the ground

The night the lights went out
And a thousand suns went down
Behind the dead, dark ground
The night the skies went dry
And a thousand angels cried
Each a thousand times

Now look at you, you’re still so young
Look at me, and the things I’ve done
Now do one thing for me, before I’m long gone

Gather your blessings in a pile
Sit down with them for a while
And then scatter them far and wide

And all those dreams I never knew
May they all come true for you

The night the lights went out
And a thousand suns went down
Behind the dead, dark ground
The night the skies went dry
And a thousand angels cried
Each a thousand times

A song about a song

Written By: Damian Cox

I must have heard a thousand silly songs
All trying to stick their sadness into me
And I’ve denied a thousand silly lies
Your misery does nothing much for me
It doesn’t touch me

This is a song about a song
That once played on the radio
I swear it played all summer long
And there’s a song that will never die
A song about a love
Like a river
That could never run dry.

And I’ve endured a thousand clever dicks
All trying to stick their sadness into me
And you can try but you’ll never make me cry
With your melodramatic cacophonies
Coz I’m happy

This is a song about a song
That once played on the radio
I swear it played all summer long
And I remember lying with Mary
She’d squeeze me tight so she could feel the blood flowing through my body
And now that song is all but gone
You might hear it on the radio between Jethro Tull and Elton John
But Mister I’m still lying with Mary
She’ll squeeze me tight till she can feel the blood flowing through my body
And there’s a song that will never die
A song about a love
Like a river
That could never run dry.

Nothing Now is True

Written By: Damian Cox

As I walk down the street my steps revolve the world beneath my feet
And as I strip away the sky I find the earth lying underneath

And if you want me to go down with you
We can watch the mountains
Wash away the ocean
Bring the silence into view

I can't lie anymore
When nothing now is true

Once there were shadows; broken ladders climbed the blackness in my mind
But if you look inside you might just be surprised at what you find

And if you want me to go down with you
We can watch the mountains
Wash away the ocean
Bring the silence into view

When nothing now is true

I used to roll the rock up and down that big mountain
I used to look for God in the wrong places; when I found him
He laughed right in my face at my purpose and my striving
Everything you say and what you do
It’s nothing to do with you
It’s just another point of view

As I walk down the street, my steps revolve the world beneath my feet
And as I strip away the sky, I find the earth lying underneath

And if you want me to go down with you
We can watch the mountains
Wash away the ocean
Bring the silence into view

I can't lie anymore
When nothing now is true
