Lyrics

You Were The One

Written By: Jacqui Perks

VERSE 1
Why Should I bruise so easily
Every time you come near to me?
I'm never armored in battle ground dress
And I do not want to learn how to hit first

CHORUS (half)
You were the one
You were the one
You opened me up and you left me undone

VERSE 2
Why should you wake up and smile at each day?
If there is justice a price you must pay
You live by rules that I don't understand
You give your heart with a knife in your hand

CHORUS (half)
You were the one
You were the one
You opened me up and you left me undone

Middle 8
You live by rules that I don't understand
You give your heart with a knife in your hand

CHORUS
You were the one
You were the one
You opened me up and you left me undone
You were the one
But I have not lost
Soon you'll be counting the cost of the ways of your world

.....do you ever sleep easily?
.....do you ever want to break free?
.....have you ever tasted the truth?

Do you know love?

CHORUS

Cold, Black Eyes

Written By: Jacqui Perks

VERSE 1

Cold, black eyes
Scarring my heart as dust fills your mind
I caught your glare
I cannot deny that I saw you there

CHORUS

And I nearly died
I'd never seen such hate in your eyes
Now I know I'm to blame
What right did I have to hope that you still burned a flame?

VERSE 2

I wish you were here
But I had a choice and you made that very clear
So we stand where we stand
Two worlds apart and love in our hands

CHORUS

And I nearly cried
Once there had been such love in your eyes
Now you fill me with shame
And I have no right to ask if you still burn a flame
