Default Alexander

I never took your souls from you,
I was always prepared to fight.
I left you with dignity intact, and you betray me now?
We put our differences aside,
But now the light in your eyes goes out.

Give me glory, or give me death.
Give me glory, or give me death.

I will be greater than him,
I never settled for less.
We conquered the whole world, and you lose faith in me now?
Won't you put your differences aside?
Take courage from my eyes.

I never asked for this,
to be a son of Amon.
They tell me that I'm a god, and invincible.
It doesn't help that nagging doubt,
That my light might go out soon.

Default Under sun

These streets may cause a pang of guilt,
But now the rain comes down for you.
Under sun all flowers wilt,
And the girls all fall for you.

Grapes frozen on the vine,
And a certain sigh for you tonight.
The crowds all come out for you,
Avert our eyes and try and try and try.

It felt so calm in the eye of the storm,
That I planted rosemary just for you.
I didn't notice the open door,
And sat down to wait for you.

Default The Hangman's beautiful daughter.

Waiting for the landslide,
I wonder how I might
Come home to you,
And realise that I'm going to...

Come Back to you
Come Back to you
I leave of course,
But I'd give it all away
For just another night with you.
I'd give it all away,
For just another night with you.

Standing in line
I take my chances to make you mine
Holding out we
Turn our backs and set you free to...

Default Roulette

She, She's late again.
You know all my friends never stuck around.
Now we're under ground.

Now that we're gone
I'd love, I'd love to hear your song.
Maybe even sing along.
Oh she liked, she liked to play roulette.

She, she turns a breath
Of air to ice.
Come here, Come here my dear,
I need to work something out.

Default Red & Blue

I can't feel this red & blue.
Although it's expected of me,
& demanded of you.
Look up can you feel our love?
Given in shards of broken glass and our blood.

Let's make amends just to see how this goes.
I need your friends to comfort me, to take me home.

This old fashioned feeling
I get when I look at you,
Doesn't seem to be fading anytime soon.
I hope you find love where you are going
I hope you find love even without me.

All these leaves yellow and gold.
Although her heart never felt this bold.
Surround us with your love,
Put this aside, down below & up above.

I've got a live recording of our last rehearsal before the boys went off exploring europe up on my myspace, feel free to check it out if you'd like. It's still way rough, filled with us making jokes that have no reference points and I have a bottle of red in me, but it'll give a bit better idea what it's all about.

Default God Fearing man

Strange for a disbelieving man,
To call upon the cassock and kiss his crown;
But when the chips are down
He turns his back on us,
Gets the best of us.
He can feel superior.

Oh Oh Oh
I'm a god fearing man,
Oh Oh Oh
and I fear his plans.

Pretty odd for an atheistic cad,
To straddle pews and sing in tune just for you;
But when his luck runs out,
When the cards are dealt
And the girls are spent.
He can still feel superior.

I thought I'd make known my resolution for this new year. I intend to write 52 songs this year, one for each week. im 4 songs in in two weeks so it's going well.
