Lyrics

Too Long

Written By: David Glazier

Too Long
Too long you’ve waited
For love to come along
Are you really fated
To live your life alone?

Too long you’ve played along
Someone else’s rules
Time to break your habit
Stop following those fools.

Chorus
Let me take you on a journey
Let your love go free
Set your sails for a journey
Put your faith in me.

Too long you’ve thought about
The dreams inside your head
Time to make the most of life
To lead and not be led.

Too long you’ve tried so hard
To be somebody else
Time to let down all your guard
You’ll see your wax heart melts

Chorus
Let me take you on a journey
Let your love go free
Set your sails for a journey
Put your faith in me.

Follow me and lead the way
To a bright and clearer day
The world around you
Is breaking up and down
The light of paradise
is looking to be found.

Let go, stop embracing
the pain, the past, the fear.
Feel the moment you are facing
Scream out loud your heart is here.

Listen to the way it beats
And listen to its words
The world is not outside of you
Like a mirror it stares back at you
Waiting to be heard,
just waiting to be heard.

Too long you’ve been alone
Time you made a change
The love you’ve been waiting for
Is right here within your range.

Chorus
Let me take you on a journey
Let your love go free
Set your sails for a journey
Put your faith in me.

Get ready for a journey
Let your heart be free
Set sail upon a journey
Put your faith in me.

Afghanistan

Written By: David Glazier

Love burns now without a flame
Smothered now by all her pain
Tossing, turning in the smoke
Had her dream, and then she woke

Chorus
Somewhere out there he’s in the rain
Far away, the cold, cold rain.
Somewhere out there, Afghanistan
Far away, Afghanistan.

Love learns how to suffocate
Holds a pillow, while she waits
Breathe in, breathe out all the smoke
Had her dream, and then she woke

Chorus
Somewhere out there he’s in the rain
Far away, the cold, cold rain.
Somewhere out there, Afghanistan
Far away, Afghanistan.

Buried deep, love learns to smoulder
Without him here, his arms to hold her
Here and now and safe and warm
Learned to let her feelings swarm
Around a candle burning bright
Their love gets her through the night.

Somewhere out there on a cold, cold plain
The mark of the beast is a bloody stain
The rocks and the fire and the footsteps he ran
Covered in snow in Afghanistan

Love yearns now, and enfolds her
Charcoaled face, her brave soldier
Dying, lying in the smoke
Had her dream, and then she woke

Chorus
Somewhere out there he’s in the rain
Far away, the cold, cold rain.
Somewhere out there, Afghanistan
Far away, Afghanistan.

I Don't Wanna be your Friend

Written By: David Glazier

Chorus
I don’t wanna be your friend.
I just wanna see the end...of you.
I don’t wanna make amends.
I just wanna see the end...of you.

I’d do anything at all...for you
But you took the advantage
And played me for a fool.
I took all the damage
While you set all the rules.

I fell into your eyes
Let all my walls unwind.
I let my heart go wild
And I think it made me blind.

Chorus
I don’t wanna be your friend.
I just wanna see the end...of you.
I don’t wanna make amends.
I just wanna see the end...of you.

I’d do anything at all...for you
Believed all the words you said
I feel like such a fool.
Held you close in my bed
While you played your own rules.

I loved you and your smile
Watched my walls unpile
I let my love go wild
And I know it made me blind.

Chorus
I don’t wanna be your friend.
I just wanna see the end...of you.
I don’t wanna make amends.
I just wanna see the end...of you.

Bridge
I had to make it end
I had to draw a line
My love for you was poison
And I took two drops a night.

Chorus
No, I don’t wanna be your friend.
I just wanna see the end...of you.
I don’t wanna make amends.
I just wanna see the end...of you.

12 Hours

Written By: David Glazier

Pour water from a jug
My heart is draining
Now we’ve pulled the plug
Night comes and blocks the sun
My heart is raining
Now we’ve come undone

I’ll feel better in the morning
I’ll get better in the light
Alarm clock rings a warning
Just 12 hours till it’s night.

Chorus
12 hours I feel ok
12 hours I get along
12 hours not to think about
How night can feel so wrong
12 hours I won’t feel locked out
In rain and cold and doubt
12 hours never felt so long
Since you went away.

Throw a plate on the floor
My heart is shattered
Since you walked out the door
The rags of night split and torn
My heart’s in tatters
Just can’t wait till dawn

I’ll feel better in the morning
And when the sun shines through
Spend the whole day yawning
But least won’t think of you.

Chorus
12 hours I feel ok
12 hours I get along
12 hours not to think about
How night can feel so wrong
12 hours I won’t feel locked out
In rain and cold and doubt
12 hours never felt so long
Since you went away.

Bridge
12 hours until the night train
Takes me to a restless state
12 hours till I board the plane
Flies to that reckless place.
12 hours till I’m face to face
with demons that invade my space.
12 hours never felt so long
Since you went away.

Chorus
12 hours I feel ok
12 hours I get along
12 hours not to think about
How night can feel so wrong
12 hours I won’t feel locked out
In rain and cold and doubt
12 hours never felt so long
Since you went away.

Stone Cold

Written By: David Glazier

Your xray eyes tore into me
Open cut holes claw at me
Like an ultrasound I saw in me
I’m seeing now

An alien alone in me
The heart’s a cold clod stone in me
Like a subterranean zone in me
I’m feeling now.

Chorus
When stone bleeds tears
I’ll be with you
When the warzone clears
I’ll love you too.
When the surgeon takes a knife
and opens up my life
that surely is the time
I’ll love you too.

A wondering child inside of me
Dark secrets that reside in me
Like ultraviolet light in me
I’m seeing now.

A door to love I’ve found in me
Things are turning round for me
Like an ultrasonic sound in me
I’m hearing now.

When stone bleeds tears
I’ll be with you
When the warzone clears
I’ll love you too.

When the equator brings a shiver
And volcanoes flow a river
When deserts turn to green
The invisible is seen

When seas dry up to sand
The oceans flood the land
When the world becomes askew
And we had no bloody clue

When the polar ice caps melt
I’ll know what I truly felt
That’s when I’ll be with you
That surely is the time I’ll love you too.

Chorus
When stone bleeds tears
I’ll be with you
When the warzone clears
I’ll love you too.
When the surgeon takes a knife
and opens up my life
that surely is the time, certainly the time
I’ll love you too.

Lover's Leap

Written By: David Glazier

My heart is just a teardrop
Waiting to fall
My heart is on a cliff top
Wanting to fall
A vacuum in a cavity
Wishing I’d fall
Wonder how to hold back gravity

Chorus
I took a fall from Lover’s Leap
I lost it all at Lover’s Leap
I tossed my soul into the canyon deep
Never thought you would abandon me
I lost it all at Lover’s Leap

My heart’s in a black hole
Waiting to fall
My fingertips are losing hold
Wanting to fall
My heart stands on a precipice
Wishing I’d fall
Wonder how to fill this emptiness

Chorus
I took a fall from Lover’s Leap
I lost it all at Lover’s Leap
I tossed my soul into the canyon deep
Never thought you would abandon me
I lost it all at Lover’s Leap

My heart suffers vertigo
Waiting to fall
I’m standing naked no where to go
Wanting to fall
My heart’s been taken by a void
Wishing I’d fall
Wonder how to stop from being destroyed

Chorus
I took a fall from Lover’s Leap
I lost it all at Lover’s Leap
I tossed my soul into the canyon deep
Never thought you would abandon me
I lost it all at Lover’s Leap

Outro
My heart is full of nothing
And my head’s not together
Is there a cure for loving?
Will I ever feel better?

Withdrawal

Written By: David Glazier

My heart is black and blue
And my head has an ache
I’m having visions
Said you needed a break

My heart’s really pounding
And I’m sick and I’m tired
I’m filled with longing
To be by your side

What am I gonna do about this condition?
Need to break out of bed and this prison.
Call you up but you just don’t wanna listen
What am I gonna do about withdrawal symptoms
From you.

Chorus
I crash and I rebound
And I need a dose of you
I’m shaking with tremors
You are the substance I abuse
You’re the substance I abuse.

My heart’s full of nothing
But a dreadful mistake
Running after something
When I know it’s too late

My heart feels so awful
And I’ve stopped eating food
I know this isn’t normal
Feel so spat out and chewed.

What am I gonna do about my addiction
You left me your keys and cold turkey
Thirsty, I’m hurting, it’s clearly not working
What am I gonna do about my addiction
To you?

Chorus
I crash and I rebound
And I need a dose of you
I’m shaking with tremors
You are the substance I abuse
You’re the substance I abuse.

My heart is black and blue
I’m totally absorbed in you
What’s it gonna take
For me to get over you.

Everest

Written By: David Glazier

I can hear an avalanche above me
Into the thin air, I’m disappearing
You had your chance to love me
Blizzard’s set in, no sign of clearing

Chorus
Never ever ever felt so desperate
Never ever ever felt such emptiness
Gotta conquer Mount Everest
It’s what I gotta do
Get to the top of Mount Everest
Just to get over you.

I’m cold and hot and breathing shallow
An attitude of persevering
My survival chances narrow
In the altitudes of mountaineering

Bridge
Gotta pick up my shoes
And cover my bruises
Step into the void
All my dreams have been destroyed
Set off all alone
Outside my comfort zone

Chorus
Never ever ever felt so desperate
Never ever ever felt such emptiness
Gotta conquer Mount Everest
It’s what I gotta do
Get to the top of Mount Everest
Just to get over you.

Never ever thought I’d make the top
The sky above me, bright and clearing
Won’t look down in case I drop
The me of old days re-appearing

Chorus
Never ever ever felt so desperate
Never ever ever felt such emptiness
Gotta conquer Mount Everest
It’s what I gotta do
Get to the top of Mount Everest
Just to get over you.
