Lost In The Dream Lyrics
(Lyrics to the Full Album on one page)

Under The Pressure

Well the comedown here was easy
Like the arrival of a new day
But a dream like this gets wasted without you
Under the pressure is where we are
Under the pressure, yea it's where we are babe

Holding over like an illusion
When it all breaks down and we're runaways
Standing in the wake of our pain
And we stare straight into nothin'
But we're covered all the same
You were raised on a promise
To find out over time
Better come around to the new way
Or watch as it all breaks down here
Under the pressure

River break down here
Stolen away up top
I ?? down the river
Staying alone
When you come here ??
Lying in a ditch
Pissing in the wind
Lying on my back
Loosening my grip
Wading in the water
Just trying not to crack
Under the pressure
Under the pressure



Red Eyes

Come and see
Where are we, this everything
On my knees
Beat it down to get to my soul
Against my way
Anyone can tell it's you coming
Baby, you're on my mind
Leave it on a lie, leave it your way

Come and ride away,
It's easier to stick to the earth
Surrounded by the night
Surrounded by the night, and you don't grow old
But you abuse my faith
Losing every time but I don't know where
You're on my side again
So ride the key wherever it goes
I'll be the one, I can't, whoo!

You are all I've got, away
Running in the dark I come to my soul
You can see it through the dark, it's coming my way
Well we won't get lost inside again

Oh no, no season I can wait
Made of time, made of wool, I can't
Don't think they would mind against
I will keep you here, but I can't

Oh, I'll talk to you if I can
I'll see you where I go

Seen the darkness coming for me




I was here in the world, the world that you gave me every time
You can say that you’re running " cuz I can go back on the street "
I'll be here when we both gonna fake it
We're awake

No more try to hear killing your goal
Means I can be bigger then the tones
In the moments of suffering
Like the feeling that you gave me, like a snowflake though the fire
I'll be frozen in time but you'll be here

Will you be here suffering?
Will you be here suffering?
"Well I hope to be"



An Ocean In Between The Waves

Run away, I'm a travellin' man
Been working every day
I watch you as you hesitate
Walking through the rain

I bet against the company again
Been trying to redefine
Everything that I know and love
Gotta know you're mine, yeah

Feel the way that the wild wind blows through the room
Like a nail gun through the heart
That just don't beat the same anymore
That might as well be gone

I'm in my finest hour
Can I be more than just a fool?
It always gets so hard to seem bright
Before the moon

Far away ma, there's a black sun risin' overhead
There's a moon through the midnight rain
How can I surround myself in time and time again?
How can I be free?

Just wanna lay in the moonlight
See the light shine in, see you in the outline
It never gets too dark to find
Anybody at anytime

I'm at the darkened hillside
And there's a haze right between the trees
And I can barely see you
You're like an ocean in between the waves




All this way to connect
and all the way to the corner everyday
You were there for me

but will you wait for the one that disappear?
yeah yeah yeah yeah

I was home when you came
It threw me out of touch
it took away from the cold of your arms
Now I wait for my turn to let it blow
against me
yeah yeah yeah yeah

Will you wait for the one that disappears?



Eyes To The Wind

I was sailin' down here on the wind
When I met you and I fell away again
Like a train in reverse down a dark road
Carrying the whole load
Just rattling the whole way home

Have you fixed your eyes to the wind?
Will you let it pull you in again?
On the way back in?
I’m a bit run down here at the moment
Let me think about it babe
Let me hold ya

There’s a cold wind blowing down my old road
Down the backstreets where the pines grow
Where the river splits the undertows
But I’d be lying to myself if I said that I didn’t mind
Leave it hanging on a line
Lost inside my head
Is this the way I’ll be denied, again?
So I'll set my eyes to the wind
But it won’t be easy
To leave it all again
Just bit run down here

There's just a stranger
Living in me

As you set your eyes to the wind
And you see me pull away again
haven't lost it on a friend
I'm just bit run down here at the moment
Yeah, I'm all alone here
Living in darkness



The Haunting Idle





On a drive I'm taking backroads
High against where the rivers are flowing
I didn't think that our love had grown

You had me dead to rights
Hey, I'm trying to get some rest
To keep on moving

How you been, you looking back
You tried to change your burning boat
Until you realized what you were up against

I spent all those nights
Just trying to take you home
'Til you released me

Cross the bridge
To redefine your pain
The the answer is in your heart

Wide awake
I rearrange the way I listen in the dark
Dreaming of starting up again

So if you look, you'll find yourself
You're not the demon in the dark
That you and I, yea we'd been through that

Can you rectify
All the time it took you
Away from choosing?

So as you find yourself flying high up there
When you release me from your heart again (woo!)
I'm just a burning man trying to keep the ship
From turning over again
Cross the rich derivative of pain
Crush the burning in your heart
Wide awake
To redefine the way you listen in the dark
Dreaming, starting
Like a stranded kid in a doorway
Just burning

Yeah we turn the light in



Lost In The Dream

Lost in the dream
Or just the silence of a moment
It’s always hard to tell
Down in the way
They cut it open and they sold it
It’s always hard to tell

I saw a soldier man
He locked his eyes like they were red
Ooh but it’s hard they can’t resist
You may risk it all
You’d risk it all for the memory
But it’s living under your skin
Love’s the key to the things that we see
And don’t mind chasing
Leave the light on in the yard for me

When we were the same
We stroked our arms and we wore them thin
Ah the sadness it was in
You don’t miss it man
You got it all like a memory
Now it’s living under your skin
Love’s the key to the games that we play
But don’t mind losing
Love’s the key to the things that we see
But you don’t mind moving
It’s a door...
It’s the key to the dark...
Love’s a game; it’s always the same
Oh, all the way



In Reverse

You've been out on the street
Talkin' bout the war with me
And the background is at night
Don't want to hesitate
Will they tell me where you're hiding?
But through the haze there's no one there.
Wondering if you care.
Callin' out your name in the darkness

When I'm done with my time here
I'm going to keep staying strong
Through the railways
But I never mind going
And I realize now that the road is bare
And I hear it all through the grand parade

And I don't mind you disappearing
Cause I know you can be found
We be livin' on the dark side of the street, damn.
When we livin' in the moment
and losing our grasp
making it last with the grand parade in our past

Sometimes I wait for the cold wind to blow
As I struggle with myself right now as I let the darkness in
But I don't mind chasing you through the back ways for the keys
It evaporates and fades like a grand parade

And I don't mind you disappearing
When I know you can be found
When you livin' on the dark side of the street, damn?
We just livin' in the moment, making our past, losin' our grasp through the grand parade

I'll be here or I'll fade away
Never cared about moving, Never cared about now
Not the notes I'm playing
Is there room in the dark, In between the changes?
Like a light that's drifting, In reverse I'm moving.
