  • Well there is a lot of great music out there but sometimes you have to dig a little deeper to find it.

Song lyrics[edit]

  • Saw my reflection, covered in glass.
    How It reminds me of you.
    • Turn Of The Century
  • Don't say nothing bout the old house. Cos I burned it to the ground. And when the darkness comes, I lie awake. Playing lost and found
    • All At Once
  • When he comes around. Do not tell him nothing. Do not make a sound. Cos if he knows we're there he might tear his heart out. And beat us to death with it.
    • All At Once
  • I was alone,
    only ‘til you took me away.

    Waiting for a bottle of truth,
    I’m just a lonely guy in my youth.
    • Black
  • Hey
    don't lock and turn away, lose your life today and follow me into the alleyway.

  • We were passers on the street,
    I never thought we'd meet until I said,
    "How do you do, my love?
