Lyrics

Just Beyond the Walls of My Heart

Written By: Peter Durwood

Don't let me get you down
With all the things I say,
Don't turn your head around,
'Cause if you walk away,
I'll know I lost you,
Just beyond the walls of my heart,

You see, it's all a bluff,
My seeming not to care,
I'm really just in love,
But I've been running scared
I'll be left waiting,
Just beyond the walls of my heart,

Yes, I'm in love, and now you have to know,
It took so long for me to tell you so,

My heart was meant for two,
And now it's yours to take,
The rest is up to you,
If it beats or if it breaks,
If the truth can give me
any chance at all
To make it through, then kiss me,
There's no more time to stall,
Just say you'll come with me,
Just beyond the walls of my heart,
Just beyond the walls of my heart,
Just beyond the walls of my heart.

Is It Me

Written By: Peter Durwood

"Is It Me"

It’s too late now to change me,
I’m still the same old stray you found,
Seems that life has rearranged me,
And I can’t help but ask you why you’re still around,

Chorus: So, is it me that stole away the thought of leaving?
Is it me that put that fire in your eye?
Let me take you through the velvet, starry evening,
What do you see – is it me?

I play the fool for your attention,
But you won’t ever act surprised,
All I do for just a mention
Or a single, small reflection in your eyes,

Chorus

I can’t stop the rain from falling,
But I can dry you pretty well,
Are you my destiny a-calling?
Or am I too lost in love with you to tell?

Angel (Sunday Night)

Written By: Peter Durwood

"Angel (Sunday Night)"

When it's dark out and you're all alone,
Don't reach for the telephone,
Think of me, I'll be there

Speak my name, and I'll say yours,
With a word, you've opened all the doors,
When you need me to care, I'll be there

I can see you shivering, just give me your hand,
Look into my eyes, you'll see I understand,

Chorus: I'm your angel, you're my only one,
I'm here now, you can come undone,
After all the tears you cry, I'm by your side,

It's so hard when the love is wrong,
Blink an eye, and years have gone by
With one who only brings you down,

Then you break, and you wash ashore,
Feeling weak with a heart that's torn,
Wondering where you can go to be home,

I know what you're looking for, I know what you need,
I'd take you in my arms if you would trust in me,

Chorus

You Picked Me

Written By: Peter Durwood

"You Picked Me"

Yesterday I walked down to the river
And cast a gaze to where it met the sea,
The sun so warm, but still I felt a shiver
That, out of all the world, you picked me,

As I looked out at the horizon,
A flock of birds was headed for the east,
I wondered how they knew where they were flyin'
And how, out of all the world, you picked me,

You picked me, alone, to be the one to lay with you,
To love you and be loved, forevermore,

As I walked home, the night was soothin',
And I found you at my gate in reverie,
And the way you held me tight, well, I just knew - yes, I knew then,
That, out of all the world, you picked me,
That, out of all the world, you picked me,
Yeah, that, out of all the world, you picked me

When You Cross

Written By: Peter Durwood

"When You Cross"

Seems so wrong
That you'd go from me,
Not so long
Of a time for us,

I followed you, but you lost me somehow,

Chorus: When you cross,
When you cross,
Will you wait for me,
Will you wait for me?

There was a house
That we lived inside,
I look out now
And see an endless night,

Are you out there, calling for me now?

Chorus

I had a dream, but I can't make it clear,
Oh, you keep on my tail,
All my seasons, you took them all away,
The day has gone, and wrecked me in its trail,

Blinking out
On a final flight,
A falling star
Bathed me in its light,

Far from human care or mortal doubt,

Chorus
