Lyrics

Fallout

Written By: Paul Manning

Something to be said for waiting one more day
the home fires are burning every day that you're away
and it feels like every time I look into your eyes
I know just what you're feeling deep inside your mind

can't think of a reason why I should stay
keep feeding illusions to keep the dogs at bay
but i warned you every time you stepped across the line
yeah i warned you but you ignored the signs i left behind

and it takes only a second to break my heart to break it in two
the fallout from you still in my mind what can I do
and it feels like every time i look into your eyes
that I know just what you're feeling deep inside your mind

Something to be said for waiting one more day
the home fires are burning every day that you're away
i warned you every time you stepped across the line
yeah i warned you but you ignored the signs i left behind

and it takes only a second to break my heart to break it in two
the fallout from you still in my mind what can I do
and it feels like every time i look into your eyes
that I know just what you're feeling deep inside your mind

I Want You To Know

Written By: Paul Manning

I just want you to know what I've been feeling and why I've lost control
of all the things that matter they don't matter anymore
its not the first time I have left you down so just go
it won't be the last time I know

I just want you to know what I've been facing and why I've lost control
and all the times that I've hurt you I won't hurt you anymore
is this the first time I have ever shown how I feel
at the end when nothing is real

But I'll let myself go to a place I've always known
where I'm all alone and crying out for space

But its true for every part of me there's a part of you
and I know of all the things you've done to get us through
so is this, is this the only way out of here I don't know
I'm taking one small step every year

But I'll let myself go
to a place I've always known
where I'm all alone and crying out for space
how was I to know you'd gone and lost your faith

Something About You

Written By: Paul Manning

Come and play with me
I won't change the rules this time I'll let you play for free
step inside my room
there's nothing to be scared of, there's nothing here for you to prove

There's something about you
and every time I see your face
it sends a rush of blood to my head again
there's something about you
and every time I hear your name
I'm caught by a landslide of love again

Can you picture this
I'm standing on your doorstep, testing your resolve to resist
only time will tell
if my method or my madness will send me to my heaven or hell

There's something about you
and every time I see your face
it sends a rush of blood to my head again
there's something about you
and every time I hear your name
I'm caught by a landslide of love again

Don't you know that you
are the one thing that I'd die for, the one thing that I'd keep fighting for

There's something about you
and every time I see your face
it sends a rush of blood to my head again
there's something about you
and every time I hear your name
I'm caught by a landslide of love again
