[Verse 1] I've had enough of touching the glass from the outside I've felt enough to part the seas of emotion No this is not an invite to see what's happening inside my mind It's just a song 'cause nothing seems to change [Pre - Chorus] And just take a step back And you'll feel it [Chorus] Oh what a waste of time all wasted on you You saw right through me, wasn't meant to 'Cause noughts and crosses have all been forgotten 'Cause I can't keep up with you [Verse 2] I've seen enough to know that I'm not foolish 'Cause it's too much to watch the world go by now If only you'd notice what it's like to be watching from the other side But this is just a song and all you care to do is sing along [Pre - Chorus] And just take a step back And you'll feel it [Chorus] Oh what a waste of time all wasted on you You saw right through me, wasn't meant to 'Cause noughts and crosses have all been forgotten 'Cause I can't keep up with you Oh what a waste of time all wasted on you You saw right through me, wasn't meant to 'Cause noughts and crosses have all been forgotten 'Cause I can't keep up with you [Instrumental Break] [Pre - Chorus] And just take a step back And you'll feel it Just take a step back And you'll feel it [Chorus] Oh what a waste of time all wasted on you You saw right through me, wasn't meant to 'Cause noughts and crosses have all been forgotten 'Cause I can't keep up with you Oh what a waste of time shouldn't have wasted on you Next time you'll see what you were meant to 'Cause noughts and crosses won't be forgotten 'Cause they'll do more than you do 'Cause they'll do more than you do 'Cause they'll do more than you do

Fading Away 04:14
[Verse 1] We were walking down the side by the city lights And there was nothing you could do to change my mind Oh I know I've been sinking for a while now And there's nothing to catch my fall [Chorus] No safety net, no parachute I'm heading straight for the ground No lifeline to save us all From the souls that crawl The dark side, the light side's fading away And I know, that you can't quite stay Stay [Verse 2] We were gonna recover all the facts that were well hidden In the corner of each room I saw them running through the drain And I can see that you're starting to disappear 'Cause you know there's no place to call home [Chorus] No safety net, no parachute I'm heading straight for the ground No lifeline to save us all From the souls that crawl The dark side, the light side's fading away And I know, that you can't quite stay Stay [Bridge] Oh I know it's time to let you go on your own now The real world is bigger than you first quite thought Can't be keeping you no more [Chorus] 'Cause there's no safety net, no parachute I'm heading straight for the ground No lifeline to save us all From the souls that crawl The dark side, the light side's fading away And I know, that you can't quite [Outro] No safety net, no parachute I'm heading straight for the ground No lifeline to save us all From the souls that crawl The dark side, the light side's fading away And I know, that you can't quite stay

The Fall 05:30
[Verse 1] Her eyes were as blue as the sky But only when she cried She just wasn't enough to keep him around It's just so tough When there's nowhere to hide And there's nowhere to run Oh can't you see it was too much To keep up inside All locked up [Chorus] But she said oh my dear I can't decide Where I must stay, how I survive It chew me up, it chews me up Do I leave it all behind? Do I hold it by my side? I don't know if I can take the fall So hold me up until I'm whole, whole, whole [Verse 2] And she smiles but she's locked tears up inside Her face is made of steel but full of lies She just wants to be tough to keep him around It's just bad luck That she can't see inside That she can't feel the love Surrounding her it was too much To realise All at once [Chorus] But she said oh my dear I can't decide (can't decide) Where I must stay, how I survive (how I survive) It chew me up, it chews me up Do I leave it all behind? (all behind) Do I hold it by my side? (by my side) I don't know if I can take the fall So hold me up until I'm whole, whole, whole (Until I'm) whole, whole, whole [Instrumental] Oh it chews me up, it chews me up [Chorus] But she said oh my dear I can't decide Where I must stay, how I survive It chew me up, it chews me up Do I leave it all behind? Do I hold it by my side? I don't know if I can take the fall So hold me up until I'm [Last Chorus] Oh my dear I can't decide (can't decide) Where I must stay, how I survive (how I survive) It chew me up, it chews me up Do I leave it all behind? (all behind) Do I hold it by my side? (by my side) I don't know if I can take the fall So hold me up until I'm whole, whole, whole Whole, whole, whole

I Plead 05:39
[Verse 1] Lately I've been going under The water wraps around my mind And I can't float above for much longer No, I can't breathe The air escapes my lungs and I can't see A route out of the sea [Pre-Chorus] And oh, it takes me Surrounding my body Competing with the struggles of my, brain And they will never see the difference in between [Chorus] The way we talk and the way we walk I've never had it come so naturally The plans I'd made had all gone up in flames Oh what I'd do to see what we could have been Cause all I need is some time, I Plead [Verse 2] I don't know what I should be missing The rain pours in and clouds my mind And I can't cut right through to find the ending No, and I can't please The people all around the silver screen Believing that I can happily breathe [Pre-Chorus] And oh, it takes me Surrounding my body Competing with the struggles of my, brain And they will never see the difference in between [Chorus] The way we talk and the way we walk I've never had it come so naturally The plans I'd made had all gone up in flames Oh what I'd do to see what we could have been The way we dance and the way we stand You'd never think that life could be so bad The games we play just all feel the same And now I see the truth for what it has been Cause all I need is some time Yeah all I need is some time I Plead, I Plead (Instrumental Break) [Chorus] The way we talk and the way we walk I've never had it come so naturally The plans I'd made had all gone up in flames Oh what I'd do to see what we could have been The way we dance and the way we stand You'd never think that life could be so bad The games we play just all feel the same And now I see the truth for what it has been [Build Up] Cause all I need is some time Yeah all I need is some time Cause all I need is some time Yeah all I need is sometime, I plead I Plead
