Lyrics

"The Way"

What's in a name 
What's in a home 
Who gets to say 
Where it is you're from 
When nothing makes sense 
And everything stays the same 

When the world 
Appears so small 
Starts closing in 
To a dot on a map 
Every turn you could take 
Lying in wait a trap 

I hope when stars have aligned 
That in their refracted light 
You'll suddenly find you've found the way 

A well-known road 
Makes a dead end 
And you have to figure out 
Where to begin again 
Is it right or is it left 
How with no misstep 
To escape 

Arrow pointing up 
Arrow pinning down 
Torn all apart 
But still trying to live 
Everyone knew 
There was nothing left to give 

I hope when stars have aligned 
That in their refracted light 
You'll suddenly find you've found the way 

And you'll get that feeling that you get 
When the wheels start touching down 
Or when you're taking off 
Wants to scream turn back around 
Emptiness within  
Days it seems so far away 

That's when the stars have aligned 
And in their refracted light 
You suddenly find you've found the way 

Yeah that's when the stars have aligned 
And in their refracted light 
You suddenly find you've found the way

"Happy Birthday"

She was the master 
Of little white lies 
Mischievous sparkle 
Lit up her eyes 
Does she hear him now 
When he cries 

Oh how I wish 
I could wish you 
Happy Birthday 

Here comes the notice 
That twists like a knife 
Reminds me to celebrate 
Your life 
That it could be as it is 
Not as it was 

Oh how I wish 
I could wish you 
Happy Birthday 

I want you to know 
I want you to hear my song 
If you thought this world 
Could be a better place 
Without your face 
You were wrong 

Yeah I want you to know 
I want you to hear my song 
If you thought this world 
Could be a better place 
Without your face 
You were wrong 

Oh how I wish 
I could wish you  
Happy Birthday

"Hauntingly Hypnotic"

 

Didn't matter what you said  
From across the crowded room 
I just knew 
Your song would linger all night in my bed 

Couldn't do anything but stare 
Hand's fixed to my chair 
Your voice 
Was hauntingly hypnotic 

Maybe I'd seen you before 
Some other way some other time 
Oh but now 
That sound would be forever in my mind 

Couldn't do anything but stare 
Hand's fixed to my chair 
Your voice  
Was hauntingly hypnotic 

The piercing pitch that struck my heart 
And I just about fell apart 
Know there's far 
Far too much to lose 
If I choose you 
But I just can't help myself 
Your voice is hauntingly hypnotic 

Please look deep into my eyes 
Until I am hypnotized 
By a voice 
That's hauntingly hypnotic
