Track Name: Mistakes (EP version)
I don't know what you want
I don't know what you need
I'm so possessed it's hard to see reality
You inhabit my thoughts
I imagine you're near
But when I get too close you turn and disappear

So I made mistakes forsaken one
Do you still believe you'll never fall in love
Sometimes when I see your face in dreams
Everything becomes just like a memory

I'm afraid all the time
I don't know what to do
There's something indiscernible about you
And wherever you are
And whatever you choose
I'll try to understand if you still want me to
Track Name: Broken
I feel so paralysed today
Your voice once so familiar seems mysterious and strange
I choose my words like weapons now
And weave them into sentences to wound with every sound

And if you think we'll be alright
Have you considered what we've broken?
Have you forgiven me tonight?
Are you asleep are are you woken?

I wonder where you were last night
Without your reassurances I fear the worst this time
Your silence menacing and cold
I try to close my eyes in time
I try to let you go

I can't forget your face it seems
I can't release you from my dreams
I feel the same when you appear
I can't believe that you're not here
Track Name: Surrender
I heard that you were moving far away now
You'll have a house to overlook the sea
I wonder if you have regrets
Is this solution best?
Your absence leaves a bitter emptiness

Here's my surrender
You never felt so strong
I wonder if we're closer now you're gone
I guess we're searching
Perhaps we never learn
I trust you'll soon forgive these careless words

I'm looking at the photographs you left me
Your image fills my vision and my soul
Perhaps I'll draw you portrait for your birthday sometime soon
And frame it for your mantlepiece to view

Asleep one night I dreamed that you got married
And I was there upon your wedding day
Whatever was I doing there?
I never understood
'cos when you entered I could barely look

Why did you become so cold?
Was there something unresolved?
A rift appeared between us
There are things I'll never know
Are you happier like this?
Do you even still exist?
A chasm separates us
Was there something that I missed?
Track Name: Embers
Sometimes it's hard to picture you
Illusions in a daydream
And though I'm sure it won't come true
These images sustain me
And as I'm still afraid of you
I guess you like to scare me
Despite the pain you drift away
It's cold and I'm still trembling

Forget the things we used to say
They belong to yesterday
And all the things we liked to do
They're reminding me of you

A long embrace within your arms
You're slipping through my fingers
Eternal longing in my heart
The embers of our winter
I summon all my strength these days
I tried to catch you falling
Our whispered names still sound the same
Whenever you still call me
