“City Of Broken Dreams” DEMO

Time after time when i walk these city streets
I see reflections of the past that live and breathe
All of my failures and all that I’ve lost
All the good things I had lay crumbling in the dust

Wandering through the park where once we walked arm in arm
Shuffling through the alleys – this is where we made our palace

Though those days are gone the memories linger on

Back in the city of broken dreams there can be no tomorrow
Welcome to the city of broken hearts
Let’s walk the streets of sorrow

Day after day brings another unhappy ending
missed opportunities – another chance went begging
ambivalence and transience are all i really know
all the good times well they seem so long ago

Chilling on the beach where we would bathe in morning glory
Dancing after dark – but this is just another story

‘Cos all those days are gone yet the feeling lingers on

Back in the city of broken dreams there can be no tomorrow
welcome to the city of broken hearts
Let’s walk these streets of sorrow.

“Me & My Ghost”

Solitude
The rooms lie empty and silent
the house long abandoned now
so far away in time and space
your pale white face just a memory
that follows me…

through the corridors to the bedroom door
and there you’ll find me lying on the floor
the candles blown out one by one…

across the landing down the spiral stair
a tap on my shoulder but there’s no-one there
the lamps in the ballroom flicker to red
music plays from the speakers
but the power is dead
and the music plays…

Decrepitude
the rooms deserted and hidden
the keys are all long lost now
so far away in time and space
your pretty voice more than a memory
it follows me…

on the garden path echoes a ghostly laugh
something is stirring underneath the earth
the roses sway from side to side…

the clock chimes midnight on the creaking stair
a shadow passes but there’s no-one there
the curtains dancing velvet red
music plays from the speakers
but the power is dead
yet the music plays…

“Mirrors Of Your Mind”

sit and stare at me a while, i just love to see you smile
all you boys and all the girls shining all around the world

eyes so bright and hearts so true, it’s so easy to fall for you
when the feelings get too much, gotta reach right out and touch…

when our music plays in tune, you’re right here in this room
no distance is too far, ‘cos you’re perfect where you are

sit and stare at me a while, then embrace me in your smile
when you look into my eyes i know there’s no divide

for one moment out of time i recall when you were mine
when we danced among the stars – but we’ve forgotten who we are

I remember we were free, there was only you and me
in the mirrors of your mind i see what we left behind
I see what we left behind in the mirrors of your mind.

sit and talk with me for a spell, I know you’ve got so much to tell
Remember how it used to be, before time and history

eyes so deep and heart so blue, it’s so easy to fall into you
when the feeling gets too much , you wanna reach right out and touch

this connection of our souls – it can bridge this empty hole
like the ringing of a bell – together we can break this spell

sit and stare at me a while, then embrace me with your smile
when you look into my eyes i know there’s no divide

for one moment out of time i recall when you were mine
when we danced between the stars – but we’ve forgotten who we are

I remember we were free, there was only you and me
in the mirrors of your mind i see what we left behind

behind what we left behind in the mirrors of your mind
your mind we left behind in the mirrors of your mind

Desolate


I never thought it could be like this
a thousand nights not so much as a kiss
i wake in the dark and nobody’s there
nothing but emptiness and despair

comforting words hang like death in the air
so many people but who really cares

give me something to hope for
i need just one reason to live

i never dreamed it could be like this
a thousand days and nobody to miss
and those that are close are so far away
the ones that i love have all gone away

i lost all i had though it wasnt so much
i had very little but now i have none

give me a reason to live
cos i need something i can believe
give me something to hope for
i need just one reason to live
