about

If all the world's a stage, then you'll need to fight hard to gain a leading role. But having to face an audience and constantly put on a stirring performance is exhausting. You'll experience fear and anxiety. Palms sweating. Heart racing. You may turn to certain remedies to help you through. If you're lucky, you'll have a long successful run. If not, you'll bear the criticism of a hostile crowd and close on the first night with others waiting in the wings to eagerly take your place. Eventually, you'll face the final curtain and take your last bow, but the show will still go on without you.

Track Name: Stage Fright
Nothing’s ever what it seems
Cherished hopes, shattered dreams
Never knowing what it means
Till it falls apart

All the yearning, all your plans
Feel them slipping through your hands
And you don’t get a second chance
To fix a broken heart

Don’t tell me I’m a fool, I know
Stood aside and watched you go
Should’ve tried to hold on, but oh
I was looking at the stars

Where you only see what you wanna see
And you believe what will never be
I let you walk away from me
And now I wonder where you are

Like stage fright
Getting caught in the spotlight
Never thought I’d be on my own
In the danger zone
Not knowing where to start

Like stage fright
Lost for words on the first night
Hold your nerve gotta face the pack
Cos you can’t go back
Gotta learn to play the part
Track Name: Lovers Make You Cry
Well, I've lived my life like a rolling stone
By myself and on my own
Travelling like my feet don't touch the ground
But I've let some people get close to me
Closer than they ought to be
And all they ever seemed to do was let me down

Lovers make you cry
Lovers always break your heart
Hold you like they'll never let you go
Then they tell a lie
Then they tear your world apart
Better if you just keep on moving down the road

Well, I've heard them say what I want to hear
When all my troubles disappear
And make me feel like I'm the only one
And yesterday's old broken schemes
Were turning into hopes and dreams
And then tomorrow all my chances gone

Lovers make you cry
Lovers always break your heart
Hold you like they'll never let you go
Then they tell a lie
Then they tear your world apart
Better if you just keep on moving down the road
Track Name: Truth Behind The Smile
I've seen your face before
Yes, you would take me with you
But what am I to give you
To make it worth your while
Oh, no, you can't deceive me
I've seen it all believe me
I know the truth behind the smile

I'd give my heart to you
And you would gladly take it
And how you'd love to break it
Yes, that would make you smile
Before you claim your prize
I've looked into your eyes
I know the truth behind the smile

I know the truth behind the smile
I know the truth behind the smile
I know the truth behind the smile
I know the truth behind the smile

I'd sell my soul to you
And you would take it from me
And throw your love upon me
But only for a while
For when that love was dying
There’d be no need for lying
I’d know the truth behind the smile
Track Name: Circumstance
Did I do things right?
No, you did it all wrong
Did I make good time?
No, you stayed too long
Was my touch too light?
No, you came on strong
Come sun up tomorrow
And you'd better be gone

Should I try again?
There's no second chance
Could I make amends?
It's a failed romance
Could we still be friends?
Better show your hand
Put it down providence
And circumstance

I must be crazy
Now I'm talking to myself
But that's not doing me any good
I think that maybe
She just needed something else
I tried to do the best I could

Circumstance
Put it down to providence and circumstance
Track Name: Rosie's Bar
Let's go down to Rosie's Bar
Well I could use a drink
And show those turncoats who we are
And tell them what we think
Cut them down to size
And damn their lies
Damn their hearts
And damn their eyes
A new day's just begun
And we're still moving on

So let's go down to Rosie's Bar
Though there might be a fight
Cos this time they've all gone too far
Let's show them we were right
How we'd read the signs
Of the changing times
Not just open mouths
And closed up minds
Their old ways are all done
But we're still moving on

Those halcyon days are in the past
And their constant ways are changing fast
Gonna wake up with the sun
And we're still moving on
Track Name: Dance To Their Rhythm
I don't have time to wait around
And I won't stay where I don't belong
I've got no feelings for people who let you down
I can't forgive them what they've done

I see you running with the crowd
I see you fooling everyone
I know I have no right to spoil what you have found
But is it really what you want?

You dance to their rhythm
Like it's something that you've done before
And you give every time that they ask you for more
Dance to their rhythm
Like it's everything you need
But I know the truth so don't lie to me

My feet are firmly on the ground
And I'll decide what's right or wrong
If you want to live your life with your head up in the clouds
Well, that's alright just carry on

You dance to their rhythm
Like it's something that you've done before
And you give every time that they ask you for more
Dance to their rhythm
Like it's everything you need
But I know the truth so don't lie to me

I don't have time to wait around
And how things change when you stay too long
I know once you needed me, but I can't help you now
I think it's time that I was gone

You dance to their rhythm
Like it's something that you've done before
And you give every time that they ask you for more
Dance to their rhythm
Like it's everything you need
But I know the truth so don't lie to me
Track Name: She Belongs To You
I hide in the shadows and I watch her through the window
I live in a dream like a lot of fools do
I watch her go walking by
She looks so good with her head up high
But she belongs to you

I think of all the things that I'm longing just to tell her
And I wonder what she'd say if she only knew
But what if she just laughed at me
Told me our love could never be
Cos she belongs to you

She's in love with you
I can’t get her to notice me
She's in love with you
She could never be mine
I live in a dream but for you it's real
I can't imagine how good that feels
She belongs to you

I lie awake at night and I can only think about her
I can't take any more of what I'm going through
The pain and the loneliness
I never wanted it to be like this
But she belongs to you

She's in love with you
I can’t get her to notice me
She's in love with you
She could never be mine
I live in a dream but for you it's real
I can't imagine how good that feels
She belongs to you

I see you out on the street with her
Hand in hand and I just can't stand it
I turn my head and close my eyes
To hold back the tears
Track Name: Riding Out The Storm
When they ever gonna free me
When they ever gonna leave me
To live my life and take you
Where you wanna go

Don't you listen to their lies now
Can't you see it in my eyes now
There shines a light of love
That they could never know

So trust in me
It was meant to be
And don't you fear
Don't you be afraid
I'll keep you safe from harm
When they're all lost
Along the way
We'll still be here
Riding out the storm
Riding out the storm

So whatever game they're playing
And no matter what they're saying
They're trying to break your heart
Cos they don't understand

And whatever pain you're feeling
Don't you ever stop believing
Cos we both know the truth
Will make it in the end

So trust in me
It was meant to be
And don't you fear
Don't you be afraid
I'll keep you safe from harm
When they're all lost
Along the way
We'll still be here
Riding out the storm
Riding out the storm
Track Name: Something Strange
Something strange is happening tonight
Just closed my eyes and then I saw the light
Did I let you down?
Never being around?
I wanna come on home to you
If you want me to

I can't believe I broke your heart like that
Going out to find what I already had
Did I make you cry?
Telling you goodbye?
I wanna make it up to you
If you’ll only have me back

I just can't wait till you're here again
And I'm holding you
But it won't be real till you're in my arms
Track Name: Empty Promises
There's trouble in Boomtown
Things are not going well
There's a stranger in Paradise
And he's making it Hell
He doesn't dance to the music
Doesn't join in the sin
He just waits outside the city gates
But he never comes in

We don't know where he comes from
We don't know who he is
But he laughs at the people
Their red blood
Their blue eyes
Their black hearts
And their empty promises

There's a rumour in Boomtown
Yes, I've heard people talk
They say there's gonna be
An eclipse of the sun
Yes, it's gonna get dark
And then there's the stranger
That we don't understand
He goes down to the riverside
And he washes his hands

We don't know where he comes from
We don't know who he is
But he laughs at the people
Their red blood
Their blue eyes
Their black hearts
And their empty promises

Things are different in Boomtown
Seemed to change overnight
It seems as soon as the city grew dark
Everyone saw the light
There's no sign of the stranger
It's like he didn't exist
And though he'll not be forgotten
I know he'll never be missed

We don't know where he comes from
We don't know who he is
But he laughs at the people
Their red blood
Their blue eyes
Their black hearts
And their empty promises
