01. Fragile Dreams

Music by Anathema
Lyrics by Gurth Bennas
"Tonight your soul sleeps, but one day you will feel real pain,
Maybe then you will see me as I am,
A fragile wreck on a storm of emotion"
Countless times I trusted you,
I let you back in,
Knowing... Yearning... you know
I should have run... but I stayed
Maybe I always knew,
My fragile dreams would be broken for you.
Today I introduced myself,
To my own feelings,
In silent ceremony, after all these years,
They spoke to me... after all these years

Maybe I always knew...


02. Leave No Trace

Born to the glare of the senses
Spoon fed reality infused
A new inherent
Passive contentment
You are so easily amused
Here and now
We are gone in a heartbeat
A dream in the
Passage your time
Chances are failing
This world isn't waiting
The moment is passing you by
Questions lie beneath the surface
The fools are fooled once again
Benign coincidence
We stole our existence
And gladly cast it to the wind
Here and now
We are gone in a heartbeat
A dream in the passage of time
Chances are failing
This world isn't waiting
The moment is passing you by

Slowly spinning on the wind back home


03. Inner Silence

When the silence beckons,
And the day draws to a close,
When the light of your life sighs,
And love dies in your eyes,
Only then will I realise,
What you mean to me.


04. One Last Goodbye

How I needed you
How I grieve now you're gone
In my dreams I see you
I awake so alone
I know you didn't want to leave
Your heart yearned to stay
But the strength I always loved in you
Finally gave way
Somehow I knew you would leave me this way
Somehow I knew you could never stay
And in the early morning light
After a silent peaceful night
You took my heart away
And I grieve
In my dreams I can see you
I can tell you how I feel
In my dreams I can hold you
And it feels so real
I still feel the pain
I still feel your love
I still feel the pain
I still feel your love
Somehow I knew you could never, never stay
And somehow I knew you would leave me
And in the early morning light
After a peaceful night
You took my heart away
I wished, I wished you could have stayed


05. Are You There?

Are you there?
Is it wonderful to know
All the ghosts...
All the ghosts...
Freak my selfish out
My mind is happy
Need to learn to let it go
I know you'd do no harm to me
But since you've been gone I've been lost inside
Tried and failed as we walked by the riverside
And I wish you could see the love in her eyes
The best friend that eluded you lost in time
Burned alive in the heat of a grieving mind
But what can I say now?
It couldn't be more wrong
Cos there's no one there
Unmistakably lost and without a care
Did we lose all the love that we could have shared
And its wearing me down
And its turning me round
And I can't find a way
Now to find it out
Where are you when I need you...

Are you there?


06. Angelica

Where are you tonight?
Wild flower in starlit heaven
Still enchanted in flight
Obsessions lament to freedom
A timeless word, the meanings changed
But I'm still burning in your flames,
Incessant, lustral masquerade,
Unengaged, dilit love didn't taste the same
And I still wonder if you ever wonder the same
And I still wonder.


07. A Natural Disaster

It's been a long, cold winter
Without you
I've been crying on the inside
Over you
You've just slipped through my fingers
So life turned away
It's been a long, cold winter
Since that day..
And it's hard to find, hard to find, hard to find the strength now but I try
And I don't wanna, don't wanna, don't wanna, don't wanna to speak now of What's gone by
Cause no matter what I say, no matter what I do
I can't change what happened, can't change what happened
No matter what I say, no matter what I do
Can't change what happened, can't change what happened
No matter what I say, no matter what I do
Can't change what happened, can't change what happened
No, no, can't change
You've just slipped through my fingers
And now I feel so ashamed
You've just slipped through my fingers
And I've paid


08. Temporary Peace

Deep inside the silence
Staring out upon the sea
The waves are washing over
Half forgotten memory
Deep within the moment
Laughter floats upon the breeze
Rising and falling dying down within me
And I swear I never knew how it could be
And all this time all I had inside was what I couldn't see
I swear I never knew how it couldn't be
All the waves are washing over all that hurts inside of me
Beyond this beautiful horizon lies a dream for you and I
This tranquil scene is still unbroken by the rumours in the sky
But there's a storm closing in voices crying on the wind
The serenade is growing colder breaks my soul that tries to sing
And there's so many many thoughts when I try to go to sleep
But with you I start to feel a sort of temporary peace

There's a drift in and out


09. Flying

Started a search to no avail
A light that shines behind the veil trying to find it
And all around us everywhere
Is all that we could ever share if only we could see it
Feel there's truth that's beyond me
Life ever changing weaving destiny
And it feels like I'm flying above you
Dream that I'm dying to find the truth
Seems like your trying to bring me down
Back down to earth back down to earth
Layers of dust and yesterdays
Shadows fading in the haze of what I couldn't say
And though I said my hands were tied
Times have changed and now I find I'm free for the first time
Feel so close to everything now
Strange how life makes sense in time now

And it feels like I'm flying above you
Dream that I'm dying to find the truth
Seems like your trying to bring me down
Back down to earth back down to earth
Back down to earth back down to earth
Back down to earth back down to earth


10. Unchained (Tales Of The Unexpected)

Unchained
Unbroken unchained relentless to regain what we have lost
A grip in reality screaming down within me as I count the cost
Holding on in spite of the doubt always trying to find it out
That we could find a way back there
Beyond the moon right through the air
Always remembering...
