One By One Lyrics
(Lyrics to the Full Album on one page)

All My Life


All my life I've been searching for something
Something never comes never leads to nothing
Nothing satisfies but I'm getting close
Closer to the prize at the end of the rope
All night long I dream of the day
When it comes around then it's taken away
Leaves me with the feeling that I feel the most
The feeling comes to life when I see your ghost



Come down don't you resist
You have such a delicate wrist
And if I give it a twist
Something to hold when I lose my breath
Will I find something in that
So give me just what I need
Another reason to bleed
ONE BY ONE hidden up my sleeve
ONE BY ONE hidden up my sleeve

Hey don't let it go to waste
I love it but I hate the taste
Weight keeping me down [x2]


Will I find a believer
Another one who believes
Another one to deceive
Over and over down on my knees
If I get any closer
And if you open up wide
And if you let me inside
On and on I've got nothing to hide
On and on I've got nothing to hide

Hey don't let it go to waste
I love it but I hate the taste
Weight keeping me down [x2]



All my life I've been searching for something
Something never comes never leads to nothing
Nothing satisfies but I'm getting close
Closer to the prize at the end of the rope
All night long I dream of the day
When it comes around then it's taken away
Leaves me with the feeling that I feel the most
The feeling comes to life when I see your ghost

And I'm done, done and I'm on to the next one
[x8, then x4 but yelling]

Hey don't let it go to waste
I love it but I hate the taste
Weight keeping me down [x2]

[yelling]
Done done and on to the next one
Done I'm done and I'm
On to the next.

Low

Hey you
Are you in there
I'm stuck outside you, ooh

We could use
One another
Another like you, ooh

You be my passerby
I'll be your one to pass through
Screws inside
Turn so tight
Turning on you
I'm hanging on you, ooh

Me and you
Going nowhere
I'm right beside you, ooh

Me and you
Going nowhere
I'm right beside you, ooh

You be my passerby
I'll be your one to pass through
Screws inside
Turn so tight
Turning on you
I'm hanging on you

Taking you as low as you go
As low as you go
Taking you as low as you go
As low as you go

Ooh, ooh, ooh

You be my passerby
I'll be your one to pass through
Screws inside
Turn so tight
Turning on you
I'm hanging on you

Taking you as low as you go
(Low as you go)
As low as you go
(Low as you go)
Taking you as low as you go
(Low as you go)
As low as you go
(Low as you go)

As low as you go
Low as you go

Ooh, ooh

Taking you as low as you go
As low as you go
Taking you as low as you go
As low as you go

Taking you as low as you go
(Low as you go)
As low as you go
(Low as you go)
Taking you as low as you go
(Low as you go)
As low as you go
(Low as you go)

Have It All

You're my size I need to try you on
Someone in between the right and wrong
Through everything you kept your wings apart
Through everything you stayed the same
And when I've had enough

She drains me
When I'm empty
She helps herself
She takes it all
In too deep
She's spilling over me
In too deep
She's spilling over me
Don't wanna have it all

Running through this maze you hold me in
Searching in a daze to find the out
Through everything you left your wings apart
I'm everything I'm anyone you want
And when I've had enough

She drains me
When I'm empty
She helps herself
She takes it all
In too deep
She's spilling over me
In too deep
She's spilling over me
Don't wanna have it all

I'm everything you're everything I'm not
I'm anything I'm anyone you want

She drains me
When I'm empty
She helps herself
She takes it all
In too deep
She's spilling over me
In too deep
She's spilling over me
In too deep
She's spilling over me
In too deep
She's spilling over me

Times Like These

I am a one way motorway
I'm the one that drives away
Then follows you back home
I am a street light shining
I'm a wild light blinding bright
Burning off alone



It's times like these you learn to live again
It's times like these you give and give again
It's times like these you learn to love again
It's times like these time and time again


I am a new day rising
I'm a brand new sky
To hang the stars upon tonight
I am a little divided
Do I stay or run away
And leave it all behind?



It's times like these you learn to live again
It's times like these you give and give again
It's times like these you learn to love again
It's times like these time and time again

Disenchanted Lullabye

Sing me yours, I'll sing you mine
Sing with me now what's a boy to do?
What's a boy to do?

Sing along for yesterday
Sing along my soul today
Sing along another song for you
What's a boy to do?

Chorus:
I may be scattered
A little shattered
What does it matter
No one has a fit like I do

I may be scattered
A little shattered
What does it matter?
No one has a fit like I do
I'm the only one that's fits you

Whispering to pass the time
Whisper for the days gone by
Whisper with the voice inside of you

With this ring you will be mine
With this ring I'll multiply
With this ring surrendering to you
What's a boy to do?

Tired Of You

I can be your liar
I can be your bearer of bad news
Sick and uninspired by the diamonds in your fire
Burning like a flame inside of you
Is this just desire or the truth

So shame on me for the ruse
Shame on me for the blues
Another one returned that I'll never use

I won't go getting tired of you
I won't go getting tired of you
I'm not getting tired
I won't go getting tired of you
I won't go getting tired of you
I'm not getting tired

Hanging on this wire
Waiting for the day where I'll have to choose
Cursed by love so dire
One more boy for hire
One more boy to lend a hand to you
Is this just desire or the truth

So shame on me for the ruse
Shame on me for the blues
Another one returned that I'll never use

I won't go getting tired of you
I won't go getting tired of you
I'm not getting tired
I won't go getting tired of you
I won't go getting tired of you
I'm not getting tired of you

I can be your liar
I can be your bearer of bad news
Sick and uninspired by the diamonds in your fire
Burning like a flame inside of you
Is this just desire or the truth

So shame on me for the ruse
Shame on me for the blues
Another one returned that I'll never use

I won't go getting tired of you
I won't go getting tired of you
I'm not getting tired
I won't go getting tired of you
I won't go getting tired of you
I'm not getting tired of you

Halo

Good and bad
I swear I've had them both, they're overrated
But is it fun
When you get hold of one
Some gone bad
And some gone back
Good ones all get taken
I'm callin' your bluff
You ain't strong enough

Wait and pray you'll pick on me the day I raise my hand
Guess that I've been blessed but I'll be damned

Halo
God only knows
Right behind me everywhere I go

Halo
God only knows
Right behind me everywhere I go

Say your prayers when you get scared
Pray you're gonna make it
And then when you're done
You keep f*cking up

One day soon I'll disappear
And if you'll come I'll take you somewhere to go
To keep from growing old

Wait and pray you'll pick on me the day I raise my hand
Guess that I've been blessed but I'll be damned

Halo
God only knows
Right behind me everywhere I go

Halo
God only knows
Right behind me everywhere I go

Oh, oh, oh

Disappear, the light is fading
Disappear, outside their rage
Disappear, I'm tired of waiting
Disappear before we get away...

Halo
God only knows
Right behind me everywhere I go

Halo
God only knows
Right behind me everywhere I go

Oh, oh, oh

Lonely As You

What would I do
Lonely as you
Pleasure or pain
I can't choose

What would I do
Lonely as you
Pleasure or pain
I can't choose

Wake up
You're dreaming
I can't stand your screaming
Drowning out these prayers
Just some words without meaning

Spare all the breaching
My secrets worth keeping
No one understands like I do

Keep out of reach
I'm your leading deletion
Hide behind these masks
Though they still see right through them

Every now and then
You're down and out my friend
Down and out again [x3]
But I'm down with you

One more time for the last time
One more time for release
One more time for the last time
Everyone wants to believe

Blame it on you, thought these years I've been losing
Blame it on the past, it's the last place I know you
Blame all the children, they're raging and ruined
Blame it on the black and the blue

Every now and then
You're down and out my friend
Down and out again [x3]
But I'm down with you

One more time for the last time
One more time for release
One more time for the last time
Everyone wants to believe

Every now and then
You're down and out my friend
Down and out again [x3]
But I'm down with you

One more time for the last time
One more time for release
One more time for the last time
Everyone wants to believe

One more time for the last time
One more time for release
One more time for the last time
Everyone wants to believe

One more time for the last time
One more time for release
One more time for the very last time
Everyone wants to believe, all right

Overdrive

Coming down I'm coming round
this time I think I'm waking up
Give me loud to drown it out
before the world starts breaking up
You change and then you change again
Turning like a wheel inside your head

Yours and mine and left and right
there's still two sides to everyone
You and I get on with life
and pray we'll find a better one
You change and then you change again
Turning like a wheel inside your head

Overdrive we're going life or death
Overdrive we're going life or death
Overdrive we're going life or death
Two strangers on the mend

Hurry now we're getting out
this time there's nothing stopping us
Leave behind this vacant town
tonight and let it turn to rust
You change and then you change again
Turning like a wheel inside your head

Overdrive we're going life or death
Overdrive we're going life or death
Overdrive we're going life or death
Two strangers, no relation, on the mend

You change and then you change again
Turning like a wheel inside your head

Coming down I'm coming round
this time I think I'm waking up
Give me loud to drown it out
before the world starts breaking up
You change and then you change again
Turning like a wheel inside your head

Overdrive we're going life or death
Overdrive we're going life or death
Overdrive we're going life or death
Two strangers on the mend

Overdrive we're going life or death (overdrive we're going life or death)
Overdrive we're going life or death (overdrive we're going life or death)
Overdrive we're going life or death
Two strangers, no relation
Two strangers, no relation, on the mend

Burn Away

I have spent a lifetime
Waiting for the chance
To save you my confession
Save the one last dance

The same old superstition
Haunt us now and then
I'm begging for ignition
To start it all again

We'll burn away
Burn away, burn away my pride

We'll burn away
Burn away, burn away my pride

We'll burn away from all the other flames that burn tonight

We'll burn away
Burn away, burn away my pride

Breathe for me from now on
Breathe for me when I'm gone
Burn out beyond
Out beyond the sun

Will you still remember
There behind the skies
Walking on the embers
Standing in their light

The hardest part is knowing
Everything must die
The hardest part is waiting here
Waiting to collide

We'll burn away
Burn away, burn away my pride

We'll burn away
Burn away, burn away my pride

We'll burn away from all the other flames that burn tonight

We'll burn away
Burn away, burn away my pride

Breathe for me from now on
Breathe for me when I'm gone
Burn out beyond
Out beyond the sun

Burn on, burn on
Calling to you
Burn on, burn on
Calling to you
Burn on, burn on...

I'll never burn again
Never burn again [x3]
We'll never burn again
Never burn again [x3]

Comeback

Tie up the transmission this one is not a test
Silent all these years but now I'm getting you off my chest
Reeling in the moment, I know it will never last
Tired of keepin quiet, riding with all the rest

Stuck in the middle no-ones making a move
I'm looking in and I've got nothing to lose

I will comeback, I will comeback
I will comeback, I will comeback
I will comeback, I will comeback
I will comeback, I will comeback for you
For you

Hide behind obsessions, I'm trying to keep in check
Ride you for the finish we're coming??
Reeling in the moment I know it will never last
Rise up to the surface high but I'm sinking fast

Stuck in the middle no-ones making a move
I'm looking in and I've got nothing to lose

I will comeback, I will comeback
I will comeback, I will comeback
I will comeback, I will comeback
I will comeback, I will comeback for you

Stuck in the middle no-ones making a move
I'm looking in and I've got nothing to lose

I will comeback, I will comeback [x13]
I will comeback, I will comeback for you
