It’s been a long day, I don’t know how it all came to this We shared a moment so drenched deep in bliss Nobody loved me like you I lost my way, since I'd found it in love’s sweet embrace I always knew your dreams would take first place But nobody knew me like you Well everything changed, and you took the blame We parted one day, with a sigh But I keep seeing your face, am I losing my mind? Still can't say goodbye. Memories still play, all that’s left now of love’s last embrace It’s hard to walk away in tears but with grace. Nobody’s hurt me like you It’s been a long day, and though the future is still so unclear, And memories are bittersweet, I’m so glad I’m here Finding the love I once knew. It’s been a long day

Walk away, is there really nothing left to say? Seems like you just gave up one day Forgetting all that we went through Can’t you see, we both just wanted to be free You needed the same thing as me It’s time for us to make our move And it’s really not my fault, all I tried to be was by your side If you really know me, you know I fight for what is mine. Who am I? It’s something that’s been on my mind. We all get lost from time to time Something we’re not alone in. Just let go, the hardest thing it seems, I know I’ll walk away but we won’t know What we waited so long to see. And it’s really not your fault that I wanted more than you could give If we had to do it all again, I’m not sure I would change a thing How are you? It’s been years since we’ve talked things through I hope you finally found the truth There’s some of us who never do.

Keep holding on, Know that I’ll never ever let you go Look at all we’ve made, This world will never be the same. Life just changed it’s course But I’ve never loved you more Look for me ‘cause I’m still here Where you always looked and always found me. This song’s for when I’m gone Listen to it if you’re lost or alone And know that nothing between us will end. I’m by your side holding your hand.

Beacon Home 04:59
Let’s walk a while, upon the shore Let’s talk before we go. If we have just one more day to spend I’d ask you all the things you once dreamed, Tell you you’re the one who’s made mine real A dance, or five… it’s been too long That night, I wish I’d known I’d ask you to sing all your favourite songs And laugh at jokes I’d heard a million times before just to see you grin. Still I hear you walking through that door Little hazel eyes remember yours All of me is resting on this gift you gave Through the floor I hear you say her name. Your hand, in time, I won’t let go You’ll be our beacon home When it’s gone and all is said and done We will still be as one.

Keep hold of hope Do want you want Then someday all you paid will show Don’t let go Deep in a thought No matter what Soon they will draw the way to yours Time has shown Listen to the Robyn’s morning call Sings her songs without a care at all Feel only awe For now it’s raw But as all in life it grows You’re not alone Only when a feather’s flying high is it that we can see the sun Even then, we’re searching for the answers to all this But knowing there is none. Look ahead, it’s always when you don’t See the sun although it’s blinding You’re on the path of seeing what you believe is the result of all this You can’t let go, time has shown, not alone, how you’ve grown. You can see through the sky The way to find That old place you used to hide Years ago. Free from the hold Of what you thought And how you ought to see the world Now you know Listen to the Robyn’s morning call Listen to the Robyn’s morning call Sings her songs without a care at all.

The night like our love was young, red wine stained smiles We woke from a slumber before the night turned wild. Do you remember, as we walked the promenade Seeing costumes so happy on faces so sad? Seasons go by as time always will I think of the moment the chase lost it’s thrill Memories fade like a shadow in the night Love grows paler in the dim moonlight. I remember you now, since it’s that time of year. When hearts were wild and love so sincere. Still running away from the life that we once had. Seeing costumes so happy on faces so sad. Your face is so sad

You Are Free 05:08
For all we know, the night might still be young when we get old But who’s to say we even get there? The time is now; don’t wait until the day you find yourself ‘Cause who’s to say we ever find it? So walk with pride in everything you do. You spend so long trying to let go Trying to grow, Reaping what you’ve sown. Forgetting who you are, Neglecting how far it is you’ve come Dismiss that fact that everything till now has brought you here. It’s what you’ve always feared. Shedding layers and crosses bared Hoping no-one sees the never-ending tears. Now we’re here The only moment known to hold the key Sing that song, kiss those lips Hug the one this moment’s put you with. Fly away within Know you’ve flown high and low and you are free It’s been a while I’m losing track of time But I see you smile I see you shine despite All that you’ve been through Remembering what it is to just be you You pave the way for little ones who think that you’re the world All they know is love You turned the pain, shut out the blame Time will wipe your tears now little girl. Now you’re one Take her hand and walk with her till dawn. Sing that song, kiss those lips Love the one this moment’s put you with. Fly away within Know you’ve flown high and low and you are free For all we know, the night might still be young when we get old But who’s to say we ever get there? The time is now, don’t wait until the day you find yourself ‘Cause who’s to say we ever find it? So walk with pride in everything you do.

Sleep in his arms, Don’t cry little sunshine Keep still tonight The moon; he will watch over you And if you wake at night Just call him and he’ll hold you tight Keep dreaming for don’t you know your dreams will come true Stay as you are sweet child, singing your lullabies. Larger then life he found her, Hiding behind the walls she built Picking her up this one time, forever A heart so big even I remember The stars in her eyes, in my skies All the way home Singing with me when I’m alone Laughing and smiling saying we’re all in this together Only a dream could make it better, only a dream…. Here at night, only the sad survives When all the lights are low the silence grows too loud When will I wake and see this has all been a dream? When will we get the chance to start again in peace? Sleep in his arms, Don’t cry little sunshine Keep still tonight The moon; he will watch over you And if you wake at night Just call him and he’ll hold you tight Keep dreaming for don’t you know your dreams will come true Stay as you are sweet child, singing your lullabies.
