LYRICS:


1. Vertigo Heights

I’m on the top floor, and yes it’s quite a climb

The lift is broken but you feel it’s worth your time

You come in and you set your raincoat down

Feeling at home you’re smiling as you look around

 

It’s vertigo heights and what a time we’ll have

We are so far from all down there so dark and sad

And being so high our heads will spin around

But we’ll keep our balance cuz we’ll never look down

 

To my surprise there were several more times

But do you remember baby what you left behind?

Remember the storm stopped somewhere around three

And when you left you left your coat to remind me

 

It’s vertigo heights and what a time we had

Being so far from all down there so dark and sad

And being so high our heads did spin around

But we kept our balance cuz we never looked down

 

And when I look back I have to say we were on fire

And while we burned our souls they shot much higher!

 

It’s vertigo heights way up in the stars

We had no idea two hungry souls could get so far!

And being so high our heads did spin around

But we kept our balance cuz we never looked down

 

It’s vertigo heights and what a time we had

We are so far from all down there so dark and sad

And being so high our heads did spin around

But we kept our balance cuz we never looked down
2. Tea & Sympathy

I live at number 14, I’m sure you haven’t met me

I can so easily blend, right into the scenery

Sometimes I kind of like that, it makes me feel sort of free

It suits me just perfectly, if nobody notices

 

I’m always home round three

Time for some tea and sympathy

 

And if you should ever feel, alone and kind of lonely

Know that I’ll be home at 3, dishing out some sympathy

Say all that you want to say, while we’re enjoying rum cake

Remember I’m at 14, let’s drown our tears in caffeine

 

I’m always home round three

Time for some tea and sympathy

 

No need to ever feel alone

For around three we can make a new home

 

And for dessert it might be, more than just some sympathy

It’s for the eternally, happy yet somewhat lonely

Remember I’m at 14, I’m always home around three

And perhaps we’re gonna find, there’s compatibility

 

I’m always home round three

Time for some tea and sympathy

 

No need to ever feel alone

For around three we will make a new home

 

Remember I’m at 14, I’m always home around three
3. Everything Seems Better At Night

It’s five o’clock go look outside

Magic begins as the sun hides

In just a bit it’s going to be night

 

Soon we are going to feel ten feet tall

Carefully masquerading all of our faults

That is why we live for the night!

 

Everything seems better at night

Even though the world isn’t set right

I can’t help it, it’s all better at night! Oh!

 

Everything seems better at night

When all of the scars hide under dim lights

Everything seems better at night! Oh!

 

We feel so alive and out of the race

All of our worries are floating in space

For only tonight there is no past

 

The breeze is cool the stars are bright

There’s nothing we need, we need only tonight!

Enjoy it now before it’s out of your grasp!

 

Everything seems better at night

With the moon and the stars supplying the light

Everything seems better at night! Oh!

 

Everything seems better at night

If for only an evening we’ve won the fight

Everything seems better at night! Oh!
4. Skydiving

8 floors up

It´s so pretty looking down

Everything is small

And birds fly all around

10 floors up

There´s a whole world down below

We might catch a case of vertigo

 

With a whole world down below

In which we met

Not so long ago

Here we are

We must be careful with our hearts

Try to see a horizon still so far

If we don´t we might be one with all the stars

One with all the stars…

 

Skydiving

Is it all it´s meant to be

When it´s really just a case of you and me

Skydiving

Might be the last we know

If we catch a case of vertigo

 

With a whole world down below

In which we met

Not so long ago

Here we are

We must be careful with our hearts

Try to see a horizon still so far

If we don´t we might be one with all the stars

One with all the stars…

 

Look and see the clouds below

They cover up the ground

So we won´t hit so hard

We´ll barely make a sound

When we hit the ground

We´ll barely make a sound…

 

Here we are

We must be careful with our hearts

Try to see a horizon still so far

If we don´t we might be one with all the stars

One with all the stars…

 

We might catch a case of vertigo

 

 5. Love Is Always In Style

Young and lovely thing

Right when you walked in

You don’t fail to see

In the corner there hanging

Something faded and grey

It’s oh so gauche, you don’t fail to say, it’s yesterday

 

But it lights my room

Every day and night!

Bringing me back to

A time that never died

 

It’s still in style

It’s still in style

Love is always in style

 

She knew many things

You have yet to learn

Young and pretty thing

But you know what’s in

But you say not that coat

It’s old, faded, tired and gray, but there it stays!

 

Lighting up my room

Right before my eyes!

Bringing me back to

A time that never died!

 

So run fast

Catch the latest trend, the party doesn’t end!

But soon the conversation dies

And that’ll be the end, oh how time flies!!

 

You do not fail to say

It’s old, faded and yesterday, but there it stays!

 

Lighting up my room

Right before my eyes!

Bringing me back to

A time  that never died!

 

It’s still in style

It’s still in style

Love is always in style

 

6. The Beach (David Shane Smith)

Siobhan, Siobhan, I see the sun

The birds are singing at the dawn

Take your body and put it on

And run into the beach’s arms

 

The morning wipes away the stars

The drunks are stumbling to their cars

The night has lost and we have won

So run into the beach’s arms

 

There’s nothing to wait for

There’s no one to follow

The beach is hungry for more

And we will be swallowed alive

 

Our youth is thin, will shed its skin

To float the tide that’s creeping in

My hands are up, my guard is down

So run into the beach’s arms

 

There’s nothing to wait for

There’s no one to follow

The beach is hungry for more

And we will be swallowed alive

 

We’re alive

We’re alive

We’re alive

We’re alive

 
7. In My Arms Again

Last night as I fell asleep

I tried not to but I had this dream

There you were still alive

Happiness had yet to die

 

So my dream made plain to me

Just how rough this life can be

Here we are now alone

Life is such a broken road

 

I need you back in my arms again

Without you in life there’s no meaning

I swear I’ll hold you until the end

If I had you in my arms again

 

In my dream every single night

We’re so happy it’s like Christmas time

Then I open both my eyes

And I snap right back to life

 

For that dream to come true someday

Would be in an other worldly way

We’ve no choice but to try

To give in to eternal life

 

I need you back in my arms again

Without you in life there’s no meaning

I swear I’ll hold you until the end

If I had you in my arms again

 

I swear I’ll hold you until the end

If I had you in my arms again…
8. Take Care Baby,  I Love You

Wake up, wake up, wake up

It’s morning baby, you’d better go now

Wake up, wake up, wake up

Take care baby I think I love you

 

See the mountains out there in the distance

See how they offer no resistance

To the weight of the sky

So for once in our lives

We can try to reach higher than high!

 

Like the mountains out there in the distance

I pray you offer me no resistance

So we can sail the skies

And for once in our lives

We can try to reach higher than high!

 

Wake up, wake up, wake up

Take care baby, I think I love you
9. I Never Said Hello Because I Came To Say Goodbye

A smile can mean forever

A word is so much more

A simple pleasantry we know can open any door

We were raised the same

We were two of a kind

So when something’s missing

We know there’s something on our minds

 

But oh, how you’re asking me!

Directly in the eye

Why I never said hello?

Because I came to say goodbye…

 

I never said hello

Because I came to say goodbye

 

We shared expectations

And we spoke the same tongue

That’s why it was so simple when things were so sweet and fun

We were raised the same

The same both me and you

I gave myself away because of what I did not do

 

So now you are asking me

Why after all this time?

I didn’t say hello

Because I came to say goodbye!

Because I came to say goodbye!

Because I came to say goodbye!

 

I never said hello

Because I came to say goodbye

 

A smile can mean forever

A smile can mean forever

A smile can mean forever…

 
10. I Earned My Crown

These days I find myself

Walking through these halls

And remember the time

I was out to conquer all

Of course there were some

With whom there was no eye to eye

It never mattered cuz my best it what I tried!

 

Oh, I earned my crown

And in this game

I made my name!

Never looked back

Or had regrets

Those times were the best

 

Now lately I

I am walking through these halls

Wondering if it’s time

To bid farewell to all

Does there come a time

When one knows one must fly

Is that the time when the well becomes dry

 

Oh I earned my crown

And in this game

I made my name

But as I look back

I can’t help but say

Those times are flying away!

I earned my crown

My paper crown! Oh!

 

There comes a time when one knows one must fly

When the well becomes dry!
11. Say Goodbye To Summer

It is a May morning and I can hardly wait

For in just three weeks, we will both be free

To act upon our fate

 

June is just around and we are in our prime

Nothing else can stop the time that’s coming up

From being sublime

 

Time doesn’t forgive

So let’s live while we can live

Before fall, embrace all summer has to give

 

Now we’re in July, it is warm at night

We are not ashamed, we’re at the top of our game

Our spirits are so bright

 

And in a little while we’ll look back and smile

For we took in our hands, we were in command

A young woman and a man

 

Time doesn’t forgive

So let’s live while we can live

Before fall, embrace all summer has to give

 

August is rushing by and it’s read in our eyes

Nothing is forever

Because soon September will make us say goodbye

 

Times like this come

Maybe once or twice in life

And then we say goodbye to summer

 

Time didn’t forgive

But we did live while we could live

Before fall, we embraced all summer had to give

Summer had to give…
12. Dear Photograph

In this 21st century

We’ve moved beyond technology

And so your image I see

On everything that can be

Within my close proximity

 

I had it saved onto my phone

Posted on all the sites I own

Don’t know if it’s the right thing

But it’s the way we do things

In this 21st century

 

And though I see it everywhere around me

It was the voice, it was the smile

It was the touch that made my life worthwhile

 

In this 21st century

Your page is up in front of me

A new phenomenon

That’s neither right or wrong

It’s just how things turned out to be

 

In this 21st century

Our lives are pure technology

I think sometimes perhaps

It ran away too fast

Leaving behind humanity

 

It can’t replace, what it felt to gaze in your face

Dear photograph, don’t ever let me leave all that in the past

 

And though I see it everywhere around me

It was the voice, it was the smile

It was the touch that made my life worthwhile

It can’t replace, what it felt to gaze in your face

Dear photograph, don’t ever let me leave all that in the past
