Songs I wrote last night

Last night I wrote some songs.. I just scribbled down a few titles and then wrote a song for each of them. Please let me know what you think of their lyrics. I'm not very pleased with some of them but have been told to put them all up to see what people think.. So here goes.

Peace

As you close your eyes tonight
I am there with you
Between ghost sheets, blank pillows
Find me inside of you

Don't let yourself be touched by fear
Doubt shall not enter your heart
That's the way we are
I am the peace inside your heart

Find me iside of you, tonight
Though we lie far apart
Written and sung but not to you
Remember all that we are

Every night I feel so afraid
There is so much hurt in the world
But there is one thing which gives me strength
You are the peace inside my heart.


Look At Me

Look at me, the shadows I cast
And the future I project
Look at me, held together promises
Actions, emotions and pain

Remember who I am
When you look at me I am him again

Look at me, forget all the lies
Return to the past inside
Look at me, forget the man you see
Remember the boy I was born

Remember who I am
When you look at me I am him again

Look at me, both the safe and the dangerous
Bring out the best and the worst
Look at me, where are you?
Know only the truth you bring

Remember who I am
When you look at me I am him again.


Forget Today

When I find the strength within
To make a promise to you
I'll take back the things we've said
Take these lies and make them true
And I know why
But this is real life

Sometime I'll look over at you
And turn from your returning look
When I think about the future
This moment is the place it broke
And I know why
But this is real life

If I could start again I would forget today
If I could change myself I would forget today
Take my hand, we will forget today
The good times we've had seem so far away

All I want is to forget, instead all I've got is regret

If I could start again I would forget today
If I could change myself I would forget today
Take my hand, we will forget today
The good times we've had seem so far away.


Between You and I

In a world of billions of people
I've only met a few, only known a few
In my life I've not always done right
But between you and I, I know I've tried

The past is impossible to track
Have we made it back? Will we make it back?
Without the past I'd be a better man
But between you and I, I know I am

In the future we will change again
And we'll never know, I'll never know
Until it's far too late to try again
But between you and I, I won't pretend

Within myself I hope we can win
Be what we've always been and never been
Forget the past, the future and the lies
And reclaim what lies between you and I.


Take Me Home

White walls and quiet hearts
Empty roads and silent cars
Gentle souls, forgotten paths
Trapped within unreal thoughts
Time sliced up and sold and bought
All my hesitance has brought

Take me home, on the quiet roads
Where the night is still black, take me back

Outside space to breathe
Amongst the stalks and leaves
The wind weaving through your hair
And in time I'll grow to forget
The new world of regret
I still grow - I shall not be set

Take me home, on the quiet roads
Where the night is still black, take me back

Turn off the headlights, keep driving
Life as a dream, with no excuses
Afraid to close the door, I'm striving
To become less assuming

Take me home, on the quiet roads
Where the night is still black, take me back.


Elements of this Place

Colours without meaning, without significance
Shapes without feeling, without sentiment
Words without emotions, without a heart
Life without you, waiting for the future to start.


Fixated

When you were born, were you strong?
Would you have looked down on me then?
When you were a child, were you wise?
Our lives are already spent.

When you look at me do you see a man?
A shadow in the space I leave open?
When you look at yourself are you the same?
Our spirits are already broken.

When you die will you still care?
Will you wish you'd never waited?
When you think of me will I raise a smile?
Our consciousness fixated.


Everything Will Pass

In a distant photograph, I see it in you eyes
It's no surprise, the world has turned
And I have leart that everything will pass

In another stranger's face, catch a familiar look
Everything you took, you left me so hurt
And I have learnt that everything will pass

In the words of someone else's song, you live on unspoken
The walls lie crumbled and broken, robbed me of the life I thought I'd earnt
And I have learnt that everything will pass

In the sky tonight alone, a single star exposed
And the feeling in me grows, touched by fire forever burnt
And I have learnt that everything will pass

And the feeling in me grows, touched by fire forever burnt
And I have learnt that everything will pass.


Waiting for the Spring

This morning I walked out into the cold
It took my breath, now what have I got left?

The sun was up, the wind blew from the clouds
I don't know how, I never know how

This evening all I can see is stars
And the space inbetween, like a forming dream

Tonight I know the meaning of life
But now there's no time, there's never time

I am only afraid of the unknown..

Waiting for the spring, I'm waiting for the spring
I see the winter in everything..

I am only afraid of who I am..

Waiting for the spring, I'm waiting for the spring
Waiting for the spring, I'm waiting for the spring
Waiting for the spring, I'm waiting for the spring
I see the winter in everything..
