LYRICS

--------------------------
Lights Out by Harry Quinn
--------------------------

Not the truth 'til someone's buying
Into someone else's pain
Soon as I was recognising
I knew I'm already late

Try another way
Don't understand a word you're saying
Safe inside the figure 8
To everything I had I'm waving

You said it before
What I thought was a lie
But I'm proving my worth
By the look in their eyes
I couldn't contain it at any time
When we put a lid on it
It had blown soon as the lights went out

Why there ain't no other language
I don't want to illustrate
Gazes fixed upon to the anguish
Just so we can stay awake

It's even in the way
I jump around to try and save it
It's already blown away
So why I am I afraid to hear it

You said it before
What I thought was a lie
But I'm proving my worth
By the look in their eyes
I couldn't contain it at any time
When we put a lid on it
It had blown soon as the lights went out

And I thought that I was here to save it
But I knew my chance had gone and came
When for hours I was in a place where
I can't remember anything

And I hope that you were taking off with
A good amount of memories
Cos the hand that I held is stranded
And about it couldn't do a thing

You said it before
What I thought was a lie
But I'm proving our worth
By the look in their eyes
We couldn't contain it at any time
We try put a lid on it
It had blown soon as the lights went out
You said it before
What I thought was a lie
But we're proving our worth
By the look in their eyes
We couldn't contain it at any time
We try put a lid on it
It had blown soon as the lights went out

Dangerous by Harry Quinn
---------------------------
						
She didn't know danger
She didn't need fear
All that really mattered is the now and here

I couldn't go closer
With everything else
Sticking to my circle talking to myself

If you
Turn around a bit and learn to laugh a little
You might turn to somebody else but yourself
There's no alibi for
Leaving her behind
Bottle views and everyone suffers

Cos it's not dangerous moving in and out her scene
But my hearts in my mouth whenever she's near me
And I've tried to find the reason I can hardly speak
And if she's ever been out there wondering what about me

I put it on paper
So that I can't cheat
Stating my intention to go up and speak

I wanted to know her
I want to be sure
Lose your outer armour 
Raise your inner sword

But if you walk around a bit and
Put it off a little
She'll be found with somebody else but yourself
And you won't turn the tide if you don't know desire
Then you're more flawed than ever you thought of

Cos it's not dangerous moving in and out her scene
But my hearts in my mouth whenever she's near me
And I've tried to find the reason I can hardly speak
And if she's ever been out there wondering what about me

I'm digging a bigger hole every time my mouth closes
I'm treading a finer line from the past that I'm contained in
I try to reserve my words rest assured there in their chamber
But never could I quickdraw fast enough to know

Some have said that she's the rarest rose
Up a climb the only earth she knows
Fear inside is like a mirrored road
The more that you can see yourself 
The more away you've thrown

Turn around turn around
Whats this run away about
I can't get my point across from back in my bedroom
She may not be so in to me, to know I've got to speak
Someone's gonna tell her 
Making sure it's me

Cos it's not dangerous moving in and out her scene
But my hearts in my mouth whenever she's near me
And I've tried to find the reason I can hardly speak
And if she's ever been out there wondering what about me

It's not dangerous
But my hearts in my mouth when
And I've tried to find 
If she's ever been out there wondering what about me

Who You Need by Harry Quinn
-------------------------------

Took your doable down
Then they had your rhythm impounded
You chose to let it in
And let it go so far

And if taking it far
Means it rains wherever you grant it
You're asleep to the way it ought to be

You are who you need
You are who you need
You will see
You don't need
Any reaction from those SOV's

And you don't know you've won
Mind set at square 1
Same old song
Same old version sung
No there won't be any time for re-runs

Play that jeopardy game
Cause inflamed and trouble compounded
You chose the images
And then you play the part

Needless for me to say
You are in your own way
Always grounded, sounded
Like you compliment yourself about it

You are who you need
You are who you need
You will see
You don't need
Any reaction from those SOV's

And you don't know you've won
Mind set at square 1
Same old song
Same old version sung
No there won't be any time for re-runs

So what is it for
And what did you do to deserve it
What does it matter
Matter at all

So what is it for
And what did you do to deserve it
What does it matter
What does it matter

It's like you said before
It's like hearing
On a beautiful morning
Holding on long enough 
Is to only serve to break your fall

It's like you said before
It's like hearing
On a beautiful morning
Holding on long enough 
Is to only serve to break your fall

It's like you said before
It's like hearing
On a beautiful morning
Holding on long enough 
Is to only serve to break your fall

It's like you said before
It's like hearing
On a beautiful morning
Holding on long enough 
Is to only serve to break your fall

Autumn Alone by Harry Quinn
------------------------------

For an hour and a while 
I was holding my own 'til I
Noticed you turning away
No more fate for the part that was all up to me

Sat around in the rain
Cos it always works the same
To remind me whenever I'm short
There's the thought
And then there was keeping it warm

So then the Autumn comes in through my veins
With all the right things I should have said like

Yours is the part where I'm home
Yours in the picture I'm taking with me when I'm gone
Yours is the body I know
Mine is the part that I'm messing up 
When we wake up alone

To the wind took the fight
So the swings weren't connecting right
I was the one who would fall
In a way still hoping I fall into place

Been a while since I made 
Something clear enough to send
To you knowing every word I'd write the same
But the same's not enough
With our eyes on a different page

So when the Autumn comes in through my veins
I've all the right things that I should have said like

Yours is the part where I'm home
Yours in the picture I'm taking with me when I'm gone
Yours is the body I know
Mine is the part that I'm messing up 
When we wake up alone

Yours is the part where I'm home
Yours in the picture I'm taking with me when I'm gone
Yours is the body I know
Mine is the part that I'm messing up 
When we wake up alone

Yours is the part where I'm home
Yours in the picture I'm taking with me when I'm gone
Yours is the body I know
Mine is the part that I'm messing up 
When we wake up alone

Have and Hold by Harry Quinn
-------------------------------

Please don't take this either way
Let's just air it out
Like I said I'm just trying to say
What we're with and without

Theories speak of wonders in
Absent love intact
Unprepared now all too aware
How it's been adding up

Cos even before we're counting
Every heart beat knows
That it was hard to keep up our late night resolve
Having's not holding 
When you're too far to hold

The pointed moments coming passed me
Through my hands they flow
The more I know the more I don't 
So I chose when I spoke

Cos even before we're counting
Every heart beat knows
That it was hard to keep up our late night resolve
Having's not holding 
When you're too far to hold

Turning up then losing what I want to say to you
If the world should stop I'd thank my luck
With no regrets for the time we spent

I just need to have you here
They won't understand
The many years have muddled their tone
As they've shouted each other down

Cos even before we're counting
Every heart beat knows
That it was hard to keep up our late night resolve
Having's not holding 
When you're too far to hold

Nothing's Changed by Harry Quinn
-----------------------------------

I've got a feeling we're on to something
Why the emergency
Takes one to know one isn't the problem
If one of us takes or leaves

If I say it in reverse
If I say it even faster
If I throw out the words all the way
Say we finally decide
Would we only be excited by
The range of the words not the aim

Nothing's changed
You look just the same
Nothing's changed
I feel just the same

I need to piece this all back together
Down to the way we leaned
Braced for the barbed wire wrapped round the answers
Chase for the dopamine

Sat here on opposing sides
All the openings look further
As the shade pulls my patience away
Say I made it to your side
Would you only recognise me by
The rate of my words not their weight

If I saw you were fading cos your head it was saying
What your conscience was begging you to say
When you see it in your mind
It's like turning out the lights
Through the gears from the joy to the pain

Nothing's changed
You look just the same
Nothing's changed 
I feel just the same

Let the feeling through
Let the feeling through
Let the feeling through
Let the feeling through

What's it taken just to get this far
Sleep ain't easy
When we lie apart

Let the feeling through
Let the feeling through
Let the feeling through
Let the feeling

YRUNGMW by Harry Quinn
---------------------------

I was hoping you would listen
To the way I feel about us missing
Out upon the things I would have thought
The two of us just know

Now I'm feeling insecure
There was a point but I can't think no more
It's like a wave but I can't take no water
There's a point but I can't take no more

I don't really want to say this
But it has been a lot like you and I
Hold my hand then let it go
Say I'm right

You're amazed by what you're seeing
I invent and cultivate a meaning
That was solely born out of a fear 
Of losing all control

Keep it simple that's all good
But you don't demonstrate you've understood
Is there a way for me to make it clearer
Maybe mirrors smoke or semaphore

I don't really mean it
I'm not really sure
Why I'm crying out for more
Should I have told you

Why are you not going my way
Where are you going 
Why are you not going my way
Where have you gone and
Why do we go in different ways
Where are you going
Why are you not going my way

I'm all gaunt and bleary eyed 
Cos when there's nothing left I can't rely
On all the bitter feelings I defended
So my hopes run dry

So I'm out there on my own 
I don't remember how the saying goes
It was the straw that meant it was not lifted
And the point where I can't take no more

Why are you not going my way
Where are you going 
Why are you not going my way
Where have you gone and
Why do we go in different ways
Where are you going
Why are you not going my way

But I love you 
But I love you
But I love you
But I love you

You're not asking me to give in
So I'm keeping hold of every thread I'm given
Til it weaves its way from me to you
And I can show my worth

Why are you not going my way
Where are you going 
Why are you not going my way
Where have you gone and
Why do we go in different ways
Where are you going
Why are you not going my way

Hiding From The Truth by Harry Quinn
--------------------------------------

How was he to see himself
Shaping better things like he read
Filling every frailty with painted air instead

Everyone reminds him of those tall tall tales
Summarised by chasing down fame
He'd channelled to a false dawn and there he could not change

Oh
She's filling up the pages
Cos she hasn't been the same since
He was hiding from the truth

So she couldn't sit and take it
Once enough to tolerate 
It's on the walls upon the two
So why does he backdown do as I do

He's not being funny
That is just the way he is
Convinced that he'll repair it
With his all his well worn tricks

He draws back to bite his lip
Hopes that's where his courage is
As he set out to harness
The pain to fight his fears

Oh
She's filling up the pages
Cos she hasn't been the same since
He was hiding from the truth 

So she couldn't sit and take it
Once enough to tolerate 
It's on the walls upon the two

So why does he backdown do as I do

Oh
She's filling up the pages
Cos she hasn't been the same since
He was hiding from the truth 

And so she couldn't sit and take it
Once enough to tolerate 
It's on the walls upon the two

Oh
She's filling up the pages
Cos she hasn't been the same since
He was hiding from the truth 

So she couldn't sit and take it
Once enough to tolerate 
It's on the walls upon the two

And why does he backdown
Why does he backdown 
Why does he backdown do as I do
---------------------------
I Don't Mind by Harry Quinn
---------------------------

I should have been aware of
You from the side
We were only on the receiving end of a lie for a night
Took my message clear but
You clouded it for me
I'm not ready yet

Cos even if i want to
I won't be letting you
Not until I set those numbers straight
But moving by the back door I heard a funny noise 
Opened it to see you standing right there
I don't mind 
Should I mind
I should mind 
But I don't really mind

All this time hoping I was right
Basing my assertions on a movie reel way of life
I should let you in
You're standing here for me
But no-ones pinched me yet

Cos even if I want to
I won't be letting you
Not until I set my numbers straight
But moving by the back door I heard a funny noise 
Opened it to see you standing right there
I don't mind 
Should I mind
I should mind 
But I don't really mind

Oh we couldn't let it slide
Losing the time we bide 
Talking up all night
Could have been talking with our hands
Hoping our caution never lands

Cos even if I want to 
I can't be letting you
Not until I set those numbers straight
But moving by the back door I heard a funny noise 
Opened it to see you standing right there
I don't mind 
I don't mind
I shoudn't mind
I don't mind
I should mind 
I don't mind
But i don't really mind

Cos even if I want to 
I won't be letting you
Not until I set those numbers straight
Moving by the back door I heard a funny noise 
Opened it to see you standing right there
I should mind 
I should mind 
I don't mind 
I should mind 
I don't mind 
I should mind 
I don't mind 
I don't mind

Two Lives by Harry Quinn
--------------------------
						
Borrowing time just the same as before
Changing my mind's why I'm making a meal of it all
But this time I had to make a call
I couldn't leave this caught between my second thoughts

Foreign voices are setting my dreams alight
They're ne'er do well by design
But I hope if they wrote
Adding incendiary support
How this blunted mind was 
Stubborn enough to hold on tight

Two ways 
One night
I don't want to keep up two lives
I don't want to split even though
I'm the all or nothing type
You are the risk I'm taking
You're up as I come late in
How do I go and give it all
While I'm losing you between two lives

Orange jackets
Look happening in the night
I can't help staring myself
The thorn in their side 
Has bedded in more for every time
That they say they're alright
While pouring the truth out from their eyes

Two ways 
One night
I don't want to keep up two lives
I don't want to split even though
I'm the all or nothing type
You are the risk I'm taking
You're up as I come late in
How do I go and give it all
While I'm losing you in between

Do I need what I crave 
Will I pray for your forgiveness 
When it's past the point of late
For when I thanked you for your offers
And just tore them all up
Just as things were looking up

I don't know why just the same as before
Plenty of time ending up into no time at all 
But this time, next time, this time
This time, next time, this time, next time

I hope you know
I hope you know
I hope you know
I hope you know

Two ways 
One night
I don't want to keep up two lives
I don't want to split even though
I'm the all or nothing type
You are the risk I'm taking
You're up as I come late in
How do I go and give it all
While I'm losing you between two lives

Coloured Sound by Harry Quinn
--------------------------------

Coloured sound
Something to think about
Blue means you're feeling down
And blue's all you've been
When you've got your worries round
I can't compete
When you've got your worries round
There's no room for me

There's a hole
There's a hole
There's a hole 
There's a hole
There's a hole in our pockets
But I can't decide
If it's bleeding out colour
Or letting in light
There's a hole
There's a hole

Hurry round
You've got your worries round
You've let your colour out
Blue's all it's been
When you've got your worries round
I can't compete
When you've got your worries round
There's no room for me

When you've got your worries round
Blue's all you see
