Track Name: Mysteries
I've never had that much to say
But ever since this started I've been trying to change my ways
Cause love and death and fear are things that we all understand
And everything I sing about
Is hardly cloaked in mystery
It's not hard to work it out
So when I say I'm lonely you'd better know that it's the truth
But I guess that you know

My heart once like a matador
Fighting with the raging bull of loneliness no more
Cause now I've found my Taurus I am finally relieved
Lost for years in wilderness
Becoming one with everything and understand all
The complexities and mysteries the universe withholds
And now I know
Track Name: Miracle Marker
I'm gonna take you to the start
And find this operation marks
And I'll be the educated fool
Who's lonely nights belong to you

I didn't think that that could happen to me

I'm gonna take you to the start
And close these operation marks
And I'll be the educated fool
Who's lonely nights belong to you

I didn't think that that could happen to me
I wasn't braced for misdirection
I wasn't prepped for your affections at all
Not at all

Like buried underground
Or thrown out to the sea
If you return at all
And you return to me
It's a miracle
Track Name: If There Was A Man
If there was a man I could dream of
I'd dream about a dream come true
If there was a man I could ever love
I'd wait a million years for someone like you

All my life I've been belated
Never taking chances
Always hesitating
Where's the payoff?
Where's the glory?
Where's the one that I'm holding out for?
When's he walking through the door?
The one that you walked through

If there was a man I could dream of
I'd dream about a dream come true
If there was a man I could ever love
I'd wait a million years for someone like you

Happy endings never find me!
I put all my fantasies and hopes of love behind me
All my moments overdue, but
If there was a man out there for me I wish that
It was someone who'd love me true
That someone was you
Track Name: Angel
When you're down and lonely
And there's no-one to call
Though you run for someone
Who prevents you to fall
Come again
No darkness is the trade
Come again
Cause I will make your day

All you need is an angel
One is a friend to lean onto
All you need is an angel
Telling you something that will pull you through
You don't have to think about
You don't have to worry
Love will never let you down
All you need is an angel
I want to be your angel

All you need is a word
One is a call and a kiss or two
When you're out on your own
Think for yourself
But an angel will see you through
You don't have to think about
You don't have to worry
Love will never let you down
All you need is an angel
I want to be your angel

I want to be your angel
Track Name: Live On Eternal
The broken-hearted killing moon
That hung low in the sky
From late November to early June
Left a scar across the night

The wounds are healing tightly in my chest

I won't let this happen again
With rings around our fingers
Whispering into your ear
The words I needed you to hear

Cause even though the pain subsides
My killing moon will come in time

"The sun, the moon and the sky
Live on eternal and so will I!
Like the moonlight in the evening when the sun reclines
And every moment, I'll be with you, until you join me!"
Track Name: Bear
My sleeping bear
How long have you been hibernating there?
This autumn air
And winter snaps as sunlight starts to glare
Through my window
That wakes me and I wipe sleep from my eyes
To the tune
Of messages of love you send me after work

My heart feels heavy as you speak
Of all the bullshit that you've seen
I only wish I could be there to hold you as you retreat

Back to your room
Where in a week I'll be waiting there for you
I hope you know
The giddiness I feel when I think about you

All the illusions that we've seen
When finding love in different scenes
Are we the heroes at the end of the stories we didn't love?
And it feels unfair to you and me
That we can barely ever see each other when we're feeling down
We have to wait for months on end

Now every penny that we save
Goes towards our eventual fate
Of being able to sleep soundly by each others side each night
