Track Name: Matter
*** Verse 1 ***
Can you, hold on hold on
it’s getting harder
as the walls close in.

What do you think you show?
do you you know
does it matter anyway?
matter anyway
matter.......

*** Chorus ***
Show yourself
so bored of lies
no use to me
the pain it hides
behind your eyes

*** Verse 2 ***
Falling into your arms
that’s where
my head lies.
A heart that wonders
do you you know
does it matter anyway
matter anyway
matter......

*** Chorus ***

*** Verse ***
Can you, hold on hold on
it’s getting harder
as the walls close in.
What do you think you show?
do you you know
does it matter anyway?
matter anyway
matter anyway
matter.........
Track Name: Barricade
(oooooh)

*** Verse 1 ***
Waiting for you
was always too long!
I never saw
no I never saw the picture!
I thought I’d get there first,
always left behind.
The girl who said too much,
the girl who said it all!
They would never
give her a chance
she just wanted to be loved!

*** Chorus ***
The healing of forgetting,
and the healing
in accepting
that life will throw you fire.

(oooooh)

*** Verse 2 ***
A barricade to happiness,
or just a mask you can't shake off.
So many words they drift in space,
too scared to darken your door.
I was the girl who said too much,
I was the girl who said it all.
They would never give me a chance
I just wanted to be loved!

*** Chorus to end ***
The healing of forgetting,
and the believing
that you can do anything!
oh the healing of forgetting,
and the believing
in accepting
that life will throw you fire!

(oooooh)
Track Name: Focused
*** Verse 1 ***
They want
what was on your mind.
And she has to find the alibi.
You stole her soul,
a thousand times.
And they saved a life with reason

*** Chorus ***
Should I
sleep with one eye open?
Or dream
knowing logic will prevail?
I could lie
and say that I’m not frightened!
Eyes widened, heart open,
I’m focused!

*** Verse 2 ***
Focusing in,
to the love that’s around me.
Right past,
all the pain that surrounds me.
Not blind!
Still wise!
Just surviving....

*** Chorus ***

(oooooh)

I’m focused!
Heart open,
focused on being alright
Eyes widened,
focused on being alright,
focused on being alive.....

*** Chorus ***
Track Name: Time
*** Verse 1 ***
I’ll be moving on,
when I know I can.
Got to find my balance,
need that steady hand...

(ooooh)

*** Chorus ***
What’s the reason,
you rhyme?
Always try to find meaning.
It gets easier,
easier with time,
with time,
give it time....

*** Verse 2 ***
When did it happen?
You feed, and you know,
that balance.
How can I write?
The need to know,
security in your eyes...

*** Chorus ***

*** Bridge to end ***
(Give it time)
Just give it time,
I know you’ll be alright! x2
Just give it time x4
give it time give it time x3
give it time
just give it time!........
