Lyrics

After Dark

Written By: Sam South/Candice Underwood

These people have no face
You couldn't tell them apart if you wanted to
This city is a strange place
You keep walking the path it puts in front of you

Shapes change with a fluidity I understand
Landscapes melt as grass would turn to sand

Drifting and escaping to somewhere after dark
I don't choose to be here but I've got to play my part

I catch a glimpse
Thought I saw you there
Famiiarity I hope to recognise
But when I trace you steps I got there
Am I seeing myself through someone else's eyes?

(Illusion) Am I seeing what's in front of me?
(Confusion) Is someone playing with my memory?

Drifting and escaping to somewhere after dark
I don't choose to be here but I've got to play my part

Take me away/I don't want to be here anymore

It's ok to let you go, tell me
It's ok to let you go from here

Long Time Coming

Written By: Sam South

I'm here again
I know the signs
It starts and ends with you
I'm scared
I'm not prepared for things I can't undo
The safest way's to burn the bridge that sets us far apart
Make truth from lies behind my eyes
It's the perfect place to start

Sometimes life can lead me and I dont know where to run
I've had my back against it all
Had my back against it all

I slipped
I fell
I dropped the key that opened up the vault
I can't contain
Hold back the blame
The fact it's all my fault
And I can see now
Looking on hindsight
That if I'd be honest we would've been alright

Sometimes life can lead me and I don't know where to run
I've had my back against the wall
I just turn around to fall
I'd better start believing that there's worse still yet to come
I've had my back against it all
It's been a long time coming at the end of the day
I just keep on running 'cause there's no other way out

I feel so tired of waiting for nothing to happen at all
The consequence of what I've done

Sometimes life can lead me and I don't know where to run
I've had my back against the wall
I just turn around to fall
I'd better start believing that there's worse still yet to come
I've had my back against it all
It's been a long time coming at the end of the day
I just keep on running

Long time coming at the end of the day
I just keep on running 'cause there's no other way out
No other way out

Heartbeat

Written By: Kit Wilmott

I haven't felt this way in a long time
You give me such a rush
And I want to hold you and yet I scold you
When you make me feel like this

'Cause I miss you I miss you
Won't you come back?
And when you're gone I have a heart attack
'Cause I know something else is at play

I can feel my heartbeat for you
I can feel my heartbeat
I can feel my heartbeat for you
It moves too fast to cope
And you won't even care when I've been and gone
No you won't even care no

I feel the need to be near you
You put my aches to rest
And I can't seem to shake
Feels like a big mistake
It's as if my minds obsessed

'Cause I miss you I miss you
Won't you come back?
And when you're gone I have a heart attack
'Cause I know something else is at play

I can feel my heartbeat for you
I can feel my heartbeat
I can feel my heartbeat for you
It moves too fast to cope
And you won't even care when I've been and gone
No you won't even care no

When I've been and gone

I can feel my heartbeat for you
I can feel my heartbeat
I can feel my heartbeat for you
It moves too fast to cope
And you won't even care when I've been and gone
No you won't even care no

An End To The Means

Written By: Kit Wilmott

The type of gentleman she'd call honey
You're the old mans guy
Calls you sonny
Tell me a joke, something funny
It's not that funny
It's not that funny now

I'm the kind of girl makes you feel good
The immoral one with an attitude
Tell me a joke something funny
It's not that funny
It's not that funny now

And I will force a smile when we've been talking for a while
Because I'm full of jealousy
I'll make you see

Can you feel it now?
Can you feel it somehow?
I hope you do
Can you feel it now?
Can you feel it somehow?
I hope you do

What are you gonna do?
What are you gonna say?
Would you tell on me because you've had a bad day?
You're telling me what to do and you're still telling me what to say
I might tell on you for ruining my day

And I will force a smile when we've been talking for a while
Because I'm full of jealousy

Can you feel it now?
Can you feel it somehow?
I hope you do
Can you feel it now?
Can you feel it somehow?
I hope you do

When you are up I will be down
When you smile I'll wear a frown
You may be rich and I may be poor
You don't deserve it of that I'm sure

And I will force a smile when we've been talking for a while
Because I'm full of jealousy
I'll make you see

Can you feel it now?
Can you feel it somehow?
I hope you do
Can you feel it now?
Can you feel it somehow?
I hope you do

Can you feel it now?
Just feel it somehow
I hope you do
Can you feel it now?
Just feel it somehow
I hope you do
