behind my shades/love lies

Behind my shades

Well I left your world far behind
Looking at it now I could have gone blind
As I touch the scares you have given
a life with you would not be living
Yes I’ve let all my dreams fade away
Nothing is bright anymore just a dull grey

Have I lost my senses lost my touch
Living like a rabbit in a hutch
Not looking anyone in the eye
Been so long since I seen the sky
Can’t wait to get home and close the door
Find a way to soothe a heart that’s sore

Chorus
My heart beats a thousand drums
As I hide my eyes from the morning sun
Wishing there’s a better way
Than hiding behind my shades
Pretending I’ve seen better days

I’ve lost so many jobs talking back to the boss
But what does he know about loss
Been down to the rivers edge
Searching for a higher ledge
Been everywhere I never had been
Can’t tell you what I’ve seen

You’ve taken everything except my sight
Guess that’s why I prefer the night
I’m afraid to use my eyes
In case you take me by surprise
Would it shock you to find
Behind my shades hides peace of mind

Chorus
My heart beats a thousand drums
As I hide my eyes from the morning sun
Wishing there’s a better way
Than hiding behind my shades
Pretending I’ve seen better days

love lies bleeding

As your eyes meet across the room

A spark ignites something to bloom

A gentle touch a loving smile

The very thought can take you miles

A dance that lovers dance

Just a game but you give it a chance

As you walk down the moon lit river

Your heart skips and sends a shiver

It seems you’ve been here before

As you hope this time it’s something more

Is she the one that’s gonna stay

As you remember the last one that walked away

Chorus

The bitter sweet taste of romance

Lingers on after the dance

The memory is gonna haunt you

Nothing you can do

As the seeds of doubt sets in

And your love lies bleeding

Green is the colour of jealousy and need

Red is the colour your hearts gonna bleed

Can’t rely on a past gone wrong

Only you can learn a new song

Shadows of the past can sometimes lie

Let them go before you hear another goodbye

Now she’s waiting on your next move

Doubt is something you need to remove

Just pick up and call her back

Take yourself off the beaten track

It takes trust to make love grow

That’s something you already know

Chorus

The bitter sweet taste of romance

Lingers on after the dance

The memory is gonna haunt you

Nothing you can do

As the seeds of doubt sets in

And your love lies bleeding
