Track Name: Early Hours of Morning
In the early hours of morning
My head is heavy from the load
See my life flash before me
And I’m sinking like a stone
You’re living somewhere in my memory
And I don’t remember a thing
But I know I’m not alone
For tonight the world is mine

Throw these blankets from my body
Cast these shackles from my feet
Close my front door behind me
And I’ll go walking down my street
The city shines like a diamond
For a moment I feel like a king
Yes I know I’m not alone
For tonight the world is mine

I see no light on in your window
No sign that you even exist
If I ever came to lose you
It’s your guiding light that I’d miss
But I am not afraid of darkness
For darkness is my friend
Yes I know I’m not alone
For tonight the world is mine
Track Name: Long Distance Call
Been a week now since you’ve been gone
Still you’re playing on my mind
I’ve been doing my very best
To occupy my time
I hope that you’ve been keeping well
And you’ve everything you need
Down the dark road that you travel
I wish you Godspeed

Here it comes
Always in the middle of the night
It hits you right between the eyes
Cold comfort from the
Sound of footsteps down the hall
Waiting on your long distance call

I’ve been standing at the water’s edge
Looking way out to sea
Wondering if you’re on the other side
Looking out for me
Yeah I’ll stay right here and wait for you
Like a bird perched on a wire
My cold dead eyes cut the horizon
Looking for a sign
Looking for a sign

Here it comes
Always in the middle of the night
It hits you right between the eyes
Cold comfort from the
Sound of footsteps down the hall
Waiting on your long distance call
