Lyrics

Rocking Chair Baby

Written By: Tanya Stocken

They say that games are good for attention
But in the end they let you down
‘Cos once the games are over and done
There’s no-one left around

You need a place you can be alone
And dream your life away
Find a sanctuary of your own
Just let your mind play

CHORUS:
Take a trip on a rocking chair baby
You can go where your mind is free
Take a trip on a rocking chair baby
Let your mind break free
Take a trip on a rocking chair baby
You can be what you want to be
On a rocking chair baby
My rocking chair baby

One day you’ll wear out the lines you use
Some things will never change
‘Cos there are no rules in love with you
No rules to your games

So you need someone who understands
The way it is with you
Someone who knows the touch of their hand
Is the only thing that will do

CHORUS to end

You're Beautiful

Written By: Tanya Stocken

So this is your world
And everything that happens is ‘cause of you
You’re a beautiful girl
At least you think that’s true
You think you’re a legend
But that’s only in your mind
On the fast track to heaven
‘Cause you’re one of a kind

While your heart’s degenerating
The emptiness is reverberating

CHORUS
You think you’re beautiful
You have the perfect life
You know you’re beautiful
But would you sacrifice
Your pride and your jewellery
For short lived celebrity
For ignorance and apathy
You are; you are beautiful

So this is your dream
Everyone falling at your feet
It’s hard to believe
It’s not reality
You think you’re a star
But that’s only in your head
We know who you truly are
And cannot be misled

While your heart’s annihilating
Society is celebrating

CHORUS ETC. OUT

Without A Dream

Written By: Tanya Stocken

I was caught in the crossfire
Of a silent scream
One man’s nightmare
Is another man’s dream
One heart’s dream
Can fall and die
Another heart’s dream
Can only live at night

CHORUS
Without a dream
The night would be black
Without hope
There is nothing more
Without love
All hearts lie empty
Without a dream
There’s nothing left worth living for

I was caught in a dream
Tangled in memories
Caught in the wilderness
Of eternal futility
One heart’s reason
Is another heart’s doubt
One heart’s dream
Is all that it’s about

CHORUS etc. out

The Lies That Bind

Written By: Tanya Stocken

Something is wrong here
Yeah something’s not right
It’s not that I’m afraid of the dark
I’m just afraid of the night
Oh something has gone here
Yeah something’s been moved
And it’s not that I’m losing my mind
I’m momentarily confused

CHORUS:
I don’t know what I’m running from
But it’s not fast enough
I don’t know where I’m going to
But it’s not far enough
I don’t know who I’m talking to
The voice’s not strange enough
I don’t know who I’m praying to
But they can’t change enough

Something is wrong here
Yeah, something’s not right
It’s not that I’m the centre of the world
It’s just that I’m left of your right
Oh something has gone here
Yeah it’s not only my mind
And it’s not the truth that will save the world
Because it’s only the lies that bind

CHORUS:

Oh something has gone here
Something we need to find
Because it’s not the truth that will save the world
It’s only the lies that bind

CHORUS etc out

Chasing Butterflies

Written By: Tanya Stocken

I see you falling
Captured by her spell
You’re not the first, not the last
Trapped by your own minds cell
Tripping, perhaps by choice
Seeing things that just aren’t there
Playing your own simple mind games
To convince yourself she cares

CHORUS:
You’re like a child chasing butterflies
Chasing an impossible dream
Holding up an empty hand
And the empty silence screams

I see you falling
Haunted by her mind
Not the first, never the last
Trapped by the cords that bind
Tripping - your thoughts so unclear
Living a dream that can’t come true
The nightmare becomes reality
Changes the world you once knew

CHORUS:

Caught up in the wilderness
Tangled in the dark night dreams
Your life’s changed beyond your control
And the empty silence screams

CHORUS etc. out

Maybe There'll Be Rain

Written By: Tanya Stocken

The sun's too bright today
Shines a light right through my pain
Deep inside I keep on praying
Maybe there'll be rain
Maybe there'll be rain

CHORUS
Let the rain fall down from heaven
Cast a dark cloud in my sky
I want to walk the world in darkness
Hide me from the light

There's not a cloud in the sky
There's nowhere left for me to hide
I keep on praying deep inside
Maybe there'll be rain
Maybe there'll be rain

CHORUS

Maybe there'll be rain Maybe there'll be rain

CHORUS ETC. OUT

Everything's Gonna Be Alright

Written By: Tanya Stocken

The setting sun, the cold night air
In my heart there’s a darkness there
I try to sleep, try to close my eyes
But I’m scared of what I’ll see, scared of what I’ll find

I long to see the sunlight
Shining through my window

CHORUS
(Then I’ll know)
Everything’s gonna be alright
(I’ll know)
Everything’s gonna be alright
If I see the sun rise
One more time
(Then I’ll know) Everything’s gonna be alright

Will the sun rise, will my fears fade
As I start another day
I fall asleep and start to dream
Of a world where my heart is free

And if I see the sunlight
Shining through my window

CHORUS

Time is passing, as the darkness comes and goes
Early morning will soon arrive and then, then I’ll know

I’ll be woken by the sunlight
Shining through my window

CHORUS ETC. OUT

Can You Hear Me?

Written By: Tanya Stocken

I know we met in passing
Drinking under the bar
Momentary dancing
How can a minute go so far?

Every night I drink another drink
Every night someone makes me think

That it’s funny how you can drink so much
And still feel so strong
And it’s funny how someone like you
Can make it all feel so wrong

CHORUS:
Can you hear me (in your mind tonight?)
Can you hear me (is something there not right)
Can you feel me (my presence around you?)
Can you hear me (hear my screams round you)

I know I maybe misled you
When I reached for your hand
But you were closest to me
When I could no longer stand

Now every night I light a candle in my room
Every night I talk to the moon

See it’s funny how you can say so much
Without using words
And it’s funny how you can scream so loud
Without being heard

CHORUS:

See it’s funny how a drink too much
Can make you see what ain’t there
And it’s funny how you could just
Make believe I cared

CHORUS TO END

Why Does It Feel?

Written By: Tanya Stocken

Something’s wrong
Your voice sounds like it’s hiding something
This can’t go on
Your lies have joined to everything

And there I was
Just hanging onto all those worn out lines
And there you were
Just hanging onto all those broken ties

CHORUS:
Why does it feel?
Like I’m losing you
Why does it feel?
Like it’s drifting away
Was it something I did
Or forgot to do
Tell me why does it feel
This way

Something’s changed
Your touch feels like you’ve touched another
Will you stay
If someone else asks for your cover

‘Cause there I was
Hanging onto every second that was ours
And there you were
Giving someone else my flowers

REPEAT CHORUS

If there’s someone else
Standing in my way
Tell me what will it take
To make you want to stay

REPEAT CHORUS TO END

Nobody

Written By: Tanya Stocken

Night after night, I’m saying a prayer
Night after night, that someone will care
Night after night, I see your face in my dreams
Night after night, I make-believe that it’s all real

These past few days, I’ve been acting so crazy
Can’t eat, can’t sleep. My world feels so hazy
These past few nights, been dreaming of you
Don’t you know that I’ve fallen so deep in love with you

CHORUS
But look at me
I’m a nobody
Isn’t that all you see
A sad and lonely nobody
I look in your eyes
So scared that you’ll see
What I’m trying to hide
Behind this nobody

Night after night, I’m living a lie
Night after night, I lie in bed and I cry
Night after night, I need you here beside me
Night after night, to comfort and guide me

These past few days, I’ve been acting so crazy
Can’t eat, can’t sleep. My world feels so hazy
These past few nights, been dreaming of you
Don’t you know that I’ve fallen so deep in love with you

CHORUS ETC. OUT
